Stirnella Bar & Kitchen is a refined gastro pub with global influences that serves approachable food inspired by local and seasonal ingredients. Our dedication to serving internationally inspired dishes with Omaha flavor is also represented in our name. “Stirnella” stems from the Nebraska state bird, the Meadowlark genus and species Sturnella neglecta. The name represents the desire to create and continue to evolve, while staying true to Nebraska roots.

    Stirnella never disappoints. I rarely order chicken (if I’m out, I’m looking for something won’t get at home) in a restaurant, but I guess I was in that kind of mood and had the roast chicken. Knocked my socks off. Flavorful, tender, crispy skin. Plus I was dining alone and not drinking, but my server was friendly and helpful despite not getting the “big check” from me. One of my favorite Omaha restaurants.

    The OG breakfast and banana pancakes were excellent. It would be nice to have hot tea or hot chocolate as alternatives to the coffee options.

    Our waitress, Bryce Marie, was outstanding! Really answered alot of questions about the main dishes and led all of us to great decisions! The food was amazing and we loved our experience! We even sat across the table from the kitchen and we weren’t bothered by it at all. The Pork Shank is to die for!!!

    Great atmosphere, amazing food! Only gripe was the food came in small portions. Other than that, best stroganoff I’ve ever had.

    Our food was delicious- our group ordered the Beef stroganoff and chicken and dumplings. They both were very great- made from scratch and delicious! Our waitress knew the menu well and was great at suggesting wine to pair with our dinners. Also the delicious dessert after dinner drink- was a perfect way to end our meal! We appreciated Steve- who was not working our area but offered to take a GREAT photo for us when we were trying to take a selfie! We will definitely be back again!

    We dine at Stirnella often. The staff is great every time. Last night I tried the Vegan Naan Mi sandwich. It was easily the best vegan sandwich I’ve ever had. The tofu was crispy and very flavorful! A+. The side salad was phenomenal as always and the croutons being kind of crushed up was a nice touch.

    We arrived at 10:00 am to empty restaurant for Sunday brunch. Seemed odd since it was full when we were there a few months ago. Presentation was good but Potatoes were cold. Server didn't check back after food was delivered. Had to ask for coffee refill, empty plates were never cleared, and had to listen to an ongoing conversation by staff in back the entire time.

    We enjoyed our dinner at Stirnella’s. We booked an early reservation, before our show. Since the football game was still on, we called an audible and sat at the bar where we could visit and keep our eye on the game. The bartenders provided great service and the food was delicious as usual. We love the ambiance, food and drink at Stirnella’s. Thanks for a great evening!

    The restaurant was not packed on the Saturday night we chose to go. The drinks were good and both the pot roast and the stroganoff were outstanding. There happened to be a large group of friends a table away and they were pretty raucous. Nice place, will return in the future.

    We were just in town for a date night and decided on here. Just an amazing meal. She had the stroganoff and I had the pork shank. This was the first night of new fall menu. Seriously, best food I have ever had anywhere. We eat all over and this was the best meal we’ve ever had. Staff was amazing as well. Can not wait to come back.

    Been to Stirnella a number of times. Food is always good. Service this visit was poor. Restaurant was not full. Didn’t appear particularly busy. Salad plates were not cleared. Water glasses not refilled. Had to go to bar myself to get a glass of wine as table was not checked on. Waitress was…terse and irritated. Questions were best left unasked.

    Several of our dishes came out poorly prepared. The chef sent out my wagu steak with a message…. Sorry this is over cooked, we are working on a new one for you. When the second plate finally made it to the table, it was over cooked as well. We didn’t even get an apology from a manager or a chef.

    Overall enjoyed the food, atmosphere and our waitress was good. The tagliatelle and the burger was great! The bolognese was salty and the steak had two small pieces. It would be great to have a nicer cut of beef as an option and maybe a couple other entree options. The beer in the list said gf for gluten free but it is gluten removed which has traces of gluten in it. Not a big deal. It’s hard to get true gluten free beer if you have celiacs, but it’s good for those just watching gluten. Parking is terrible!
