We were there for my husband’s birthday. It was wonderful! Our food was amazing. I had the Sea Bass and he had the bone-in ribeye special. Both were perfectly prepared. We also tried a couple of their specialty cocktails that were really unique and very good. Our service was very personal and thoughtfully timed. We had a great evening!

We don’t go out that often but when we have a “special “ occasion we always think of the flatiron. This is our place to splurge and it never disappoints

Beautiful ambiance but the food was only pretending to be worth the price. Covering a lovely piece of Nebraska beef with a very salty sauce, more salt on two of our other dishes, an appetizer we were assured only fed two could have fed six so the 2nd order went to waste. A waitress who explained the ingredients as though we'd just crawled out from under a rock and then didn't bother to ask how we'd like the bill "because we don't do that". Marginally good at very pretentious pricing. Won't be back.

When it snows please be sure to take care of the large amount of snow that is pushed up against the curb by snow plows. It was very difficult for my wife and I to cross the barrier of snow to get from our car to the restaurant. I nearly fell helping my wife. We were parked on the street facing the building. The snow was about 2 feet high and about 4 feet across.

Menu items were priced well, but server promoted the rib eye and appetizer but not telling us it would be $90 & $70. The bill was a total SHOCK! Would have never ordered that at that price! Big service disappointment. No other complaints.

This being our first visit to Flatiron Cafe, we obviously had no idea what to expect, and were very pleased with the experience! Everything about our time there was perfect. My fiance has mentioned multiple times since, just how much she enjoyed the visit. Faltiron Cafe ranks high among our preferred establishments.

We loved our dinner—sat in the very front of restaurant. Perfect for us to visit and hear everyone, as well as enjoy the view of downtowns streets. The various dinner orders were beautiful—and I felt-large portioned. Our waitress was very personable and made us feel quite comfortable.

First visit and experienced great food. My overall rating was 4 star and could have easily got 5 stars but for 1 critical issue.
My wife has a food allergy and the server insured that he has going to inform the kitchen. My wife has been sick for the past 12 hours which is related the Flat Iron procedures.
Very disappointed on the communication between the server and kitchen staff. I'm not sure if we can go back.

It was a great evening. Starting with the entry as we were greeted with somebody eager to see us and seemed interested in us having an enjoyable evening. The waiter was attentive and helped us split an entree that was right for the two of us. I was a nervous about getting to the show at the Orpheum. They assured me we had time, we did.

I will definitely return for the great food and great ambiance of the restaurant!!

Always a treat to get the chance to have dinner at the Flatiron. If we find ourselves in Omaha for an evening this is always our go to spot. This night it was made even more special by the Fireworks going on at the mall. They had been postponed from New Years Eve (too cold and windy) to our dining evening Jan. 5 instead. So we had a fabulous meal against the backdrop of fabulous fireworks over the Old Market. Thanks Flatiron....we hope to see you again soon.
