My annual visit to Omha to see Family is not complete unless I have a wonderful meal at The Flatiron Cafe.

Outstanding steak, so tender you could cut it with a fork. Outstanding service too, from a long-time Omaha classic.

my French onion soup was way too salty, the sea bass was too fishy tasting. We were offered soup or salad by our waiter. I told him that if I had a choice ,I would have soup. He charged me $12 extra and I didn't receive the salad that was supposed to be included. The same was true for my husband. He rated his dinner a 6 out of 10.

Another great experience. The ambiance is top notch. Our pork tenderloin was a little undercooked,but was quickly taken care of. We will be back.

We LOVE The Flatiron Cafe. We are from Hastings and anytime we are overnight in Omaha, my go to reservation is one at the Flatiron. The food and service are consistently top shelf and I love the intimate feeling of the restaurant. Thank you owners and staff.....you never disappoint!

Overall it was excellent but there were 2 things that could've been better. First, I ordered the French Onion Soup and it wasn't very good. it had few onions, too much bread and had a burned taste to it. Second, even though we were the first table seated our main course took a very long time to get out and when it did the food was only warm. It was very good but it could've been hotter. Other than it was an excellent meal and I would still definitely come back.

Very beautiful and interesting building. Nice menu. Restaurant is good but not great. The food was mixed and average for an expensive restuarant. Service was very nice but slow with long waits at several steps even though not that busy. Disappointing because it is one of the most beautiful restaurants in Omaha.

Celebrating a birthday dinner there tonight and the service was top notch. Loved that our server let us know to order a sauce on the side as it was one of their spicier ones. We loved the dinner, and we look forward to coming back again soon.

Wonderful find in the heart of Omaha in the historic Hotel Flatiron building. Great selection of uniquely original dishes for you to enjoy while taking in the distinct architecture surrounding you on all sides. Would be an excellent place to propose or simply grab a memorable meal before a show at the nearby Orpheum Theatre. If you are from out of town, as I was, put this remarkable spot on your list of must visits! Highly recommend.

This was one of the best meals I have had in a long time. Had the Grilled Tenderloin of Beef with saffron mashed potatoes. Perfectly prepared and melt in the mouth tender! Lobster bisque and the Romaine Heart with caesar dressing was awesome.

GPS address puts you onto the street that runs along backside of restaurant. As we were walking around to the front a hostess saw us through the window and invited us to walk through the kitchen. Wait staff was very helpful in guiding us through menu. Excellent dining experience and wonderful food!

Even before we arrived, this was an fantastic experience. We made reservations for 6pm and had planned to see Hamilton at 7:30pm and the hostess called around noon the day of and suggested we arrive earlier for an optimum dining experience so that we wouldn’t feel rushed. She was right! We got there around 5:15, and only two tables were there, and within the hour, the place was packed. The service and food was one of our top ten dining experiences in our lifetime, and we have dined all over the world. Everything we ate was superb! I highly recommend the sea bass, the lobster bisque and the beef medallions topped with crab! We can’t wait to go back!

Amazing! I’ve wanted to dine at The Flatiron for a while, and it exceeded my expectations! The food was perfect, and beautiful! The service was excellent yet unpretentious. The owner was also very accommodating when we had an additional guest after we had been seated and ordered drinks and appetizers. Although it was a busy theater night, she very graciously found a bigger table for us. Can’t wait to go back - The Flatiron will be my new favorite!

We so enjoyed our lovely and relaxing dinner. Restaurant called early in the day and recommended we arrive earlier, if possible, so that we could enjoy a relaxing dinner before the theater. Has become one of my favorites.

Because it is in the Flatiron building, the atmosphere is intimate and interesting.
The staff is very attentive and we have not yet been disappointed in our dining
experience there.
It is not inexpensive but you can always count on a great meal and fine dining.
We would definitely go there again & again plus it's within walking distance to the
Orpheum!
