The service was amazing. Our server was pleasant, cheerful, and down to earth. She explained the menu items aiding in our entrée decisions. The atmosphere is elegant but not pompous. The food was delicious and not overpriced.
Amazing as always
Food cooked to perfection with elegant presentation. Ambiance superb.
We had a wonderful meal, etc. Service was outstanding.
We've been coming to the Flatiron almost since it opened, at least annually. If we lived closer, we'd come much more frequently. It never fails to meet or exceed our expectations. The service is impeccable & unobtrusive. The staff offers advice & direction but lets the customer be in charge completely. The food is always spot on, but old standards & new creations. We look forward to our next visit!
Outstanding in every way. Sea bass was like velvet, delicious Asian-type glaze. Lobster bisque fabulous. Chocolate mousse more than just an ordinary mousse - so delicious, surrounded by fresh fruit. Server was impeccable with timing, etiquette.
We had a wonderful dinner at The Flatiron Cafe! Probably the best steak and sea bass we've ever had! Every plate including our appetizer & salads were beautiful & delicious! The only disappointment we had is we mentioned on Open Table it was my wife's 50th birthday & the restaurant never mentioned it. Just a small disappointment because everything else was excellent!
We came here for our wedding anniversary and the setting was intimate. Maybe a little too intimate because you’re sitting so close to everyone and hearing their conversations. Great service, delicious food, and well priced.
While the atmosphere is one of the best in the city, the quality of the food is not necessarily worth the price. My girlfriend's vegetable accompaniment to her ribeye steak was literally so salty it was hard to eat. Also, the steak itself had more than average amount of fat. My house salad was very disappointing as it was simply a hash of lettuce with maybe two or three additional items.
All in all I would not make the restaurant a must visit.
A wonderful quiet venue with superb food.
We couldn't love Flatiron more. It is always consistently top notch with food, service, and ambiance. It is about our favorite place to dine for our date night. Kathleen Jamrozy and family have worked to make this restaurant a gem of fine dining in Omaha.
Great food, perfect before the Beach Boys concert!
Our dining experience at the Flat Iron was amazing! The service, the food, and the ambiance was all incredibly wonderful!
Perfect as always.
What an amazing establishment! The atmosphere was wonderful, service was exceptional, and the food was great! We had a reservation and were seated right away. Our server took amazing care of us and you could tell she truly cared! I don't normally give five stars on reviews but this place deserves it all the way! The wine list was amazing; the food was SUPERB! Would go back on another date in a heartbeat!
we arrived a little early, but we were promptly seated and service began immediately. Fine dining, but dress business casual. Menu had great choices and our selections were delicious! One was a filet with saffron potatoes and asparagus done perfectly. The other was tournedos of beef, a type of scalloped potato with roasted cauliflower. Also perfect. Wine selection was good as was the service. Overall, a good evening.
I took my guy out before our night at the theater. The wait staff was friendly and the right amount of attentive. My guy had the steak with king crab and he said it was "seriously, the best steak of my life" - and that's saying a lot. The wine selection was good and we thoroughly enjoyed our bottle of Pinot noir. I had the pork tenderloin which was fabulous. We loved the food, service, ambiance and the convenient location to theater etc. We'll be back next time and take advantage of the beautiful patio seating.
The only thing I was disappointed about was I booked our reservations on open table and it asked if it was for a special occasion. I replied yes our 30th wedding anniversary with an explanation on how much we love the Flatiron. We got to the restaurant and nobody said anything to us, they asked if tonight was a special occasion and then we told them. Why have the box on the reservation if you’re not going to read them and great people so they feel extra special? Also a little comp of something for 30 years would have been nice. We had drinks earlier at another location and the bartender comped our drinks.
Our first time at the Flatiron was great. Superb service....Joe and Frannie both personable and knowledgeable. Food was outstanding with an atmosphere to match.
Excellent all the way around. Just excellent!
Great service, great atmosphere, nice location, menu has fantastic options and execution is the best I’ve had in downtown Omaha.
The service and food was outstanding!
Not what I thought it would be. We were seated at a wobbly table that took 3 people to try to fix, then they just moved the table from us and brought in another table. Our waitress did not introduce herself when she came to the table. It took a while to have our drink order taken, then our drinks sat at the bar for ten + minutes. We ordered an appetizer, Gratin of Shiitake Mushrooms, blue crab and Havarti with Garlic Butter, sounds amazing, but it wasn't. I think it sat to long in the kitchen, not hot or warm at all. For dinner my husband ordered the Tournedos of Beef and it was excellent. I ordered the special of the day which was grilled lobster, the lobster was tough. One thing I will say is that one of the wait staff did plug the parking meter for us, but it took a while to get that figured out, as we needed change. Over all, for the price I was not that impressed.
We love this place. Every year when we attend Berkshire Hathaway Shareholder meeting we make this our last dinner in town because we know it will be awesome. Not disappointed again this year.
Had the beef with crab - delicious! The food presentation is fantastic. Wines by the glass very good. The service is the best. Everyone is attentive. The staff help each other out.
I can’t say enough good things. We’ll definitely be back next year.
Impressive as usual. Flat Iron is one of the better restaurants in Omaha. Fine dining adjacent, very approachable and all around excellent.
Everything was great except for the T-Bone was not up to expectations.
Nice location & atmosphere. Good food & service. Great for pre-Orpheum event.
The evening couldn’t have been better. We had out of town friends with us and they couldn’t believe the great experience. Service was fantastic.
As usual, the Flatiron outdid itself.. I had the evening special, swordfish, and it was by far the best I've ever had.
We have been enjoying the Flatiron for over 25 years. We have been able to count on it for what ever we wanted to use it for. I have had dinners there for special occasions, anniversary ,family get together and many other. Without flaw. I will not take my wife, family or friends to places that are hit and miss! The Flatiron has been constant in there professional and friendly service and also there preparation of menu items. I would recommend to expand the menu a bit to include a special pasta dish that would change monthly, and add a tasting and pairing menu. As you can see I recommend the Flatiron for just about any occasion that you need for upscale casual and formal dinning!
Food was delicious and well presented. We both had sea bass that was phenomenal. Liked the selection of 1/2 wine bottles so we could have a cocktail and wine. We will definitely go back.
We wanted a recommendation for our adult family to meet. My sister told my about this place as they have eaten here a couple of times when in town. We were more than happy with it! The outstanding customer service was better than I've ever experienced by every staff member we came in contact with. The food was wonderful and we couldn't have picked a better place. Definitely would return and would recommend to anyone. Thank you for the great time!
One of the most romantic places in Omaha. Quiet elegance, great food, and attentive staff.
We love to eat here before an event at the Orpheum, just a short walk away. The beef and the au gratin potatoes were wonderful. And try their special ice cream: salt caramel. Hmmm.
I was very pleased with the service and the food was outstanding
Birthday Dinner with my family and boyfriend. It was perfect ❤️
Had a long wait between courses, food came out cold and was over seasoned. Waiter needed better training, we usually have a good meal here, but we will not be coming back any time soon.
We have always ranked the Flatiron as one of our favorites in Omaha. With the new brother/sister ownership and management, it hasn't missed a beat. Wonderful ambience, excellent food, skilled wait staff, and an excellent value. This is a far better experience than some other Omaha restaurants that are priced higher.
