Fantastic anniversary diner. We had lobster and steak. Lobster was fresh and sweet. Filet was melt in your mouth delicious. The best meal we have ever had in 25 years in Omaha. 2nd generation of family owners doing great work.

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.

Overall, great place, friendly staff, superb food and great atmosphere. The only down side is the prices seemed a bit high when compared to similar Omaha higher end restaurants. Not a big deal, but a bit of a damper on the overall night. Also, the special sounded great, but it was $80, and the price was only provided when asked. That’s kind of a “buzz-kill” for a fun night. Later, we wound up talking about the ridiculous price of the special more than the positive aspects of the dinner.

The Flatiron Cafe prides itself in being a great place for special occasions, like anniversaries. This was our 50th anniversary, noted when the reservation was made, and never heard "boo" from anyone. I place part of that blame on Open Table, but I also mentioned it to the Maitre D when we arrived. We had much bigger fanfare last year on our 49th. Very disappointed.

The Flatiron is always a wonderful choice for a special occasion. Service was pretty slow the night we visited. There were three tables of large groups so that might have impacted the timing, but there were also only three tables of two people dining, so not packed the night we were there at all. Our waitresss would disappear for long periods of time. Food was good, drinks were good. We were there celebrating our anniversary, and while I indicated that on our reservation, we did not receive the usual free dessert for such a special occasion. But the dessert we did get was excellent!

The Flatiron feels like we are being welcomed home. The service is exceptional. The food is always real good. A great place to stop at before going to the theater! My only grip is the menu. Now do not get me wrong for what the do there with their menu is absolutely excellent. All the menu items are excellent in taste! We would like to go more often but we do not because we like to try different dishes and that is not being done at this point. I have already recommended things like pairing menu's changing on a regular basis. Add a few Italian specialties , and other ethnic items. I would also add a few classic continental dishes such as Lobster Thermador, Beef Wellington to mention a few. I believe by doing the above mentioned additions they would increase their following at least 2 fold. If you agree please let them know. We have being going to the Flatiron for many, many years and do not want to stop. It is our go to place for any and all occasions.

The food was excellent! The service was not acceptable. Our server asked if we were going to the theater and since we were he said he would get us out in time. Everything took twice as long as it should have. It really bothered me when guests who came in after got their food before us. They were even leaving before us. I wanted to have dessert but did not have time. We got there before our reservation at 5:30 and left a littler after 7:00. It took about 20 minutes for my husband to get a refill on his ice tea.

This is one of our favorite restaurants. They always do a fantastic job with the food and service. The Tournedos Beef, med rare, could have cut it with a fork and had a great flavor. The Salmon was a good as usual. The French Onion Soup and Lobster Bisque Soup were super. We will be back.

The Flatiron is our "go-to" place for pre-theatre dining. Always delicious food, great wine, and superb service. I wish they had a few more wine choices "by the glass", although we frequently order a bottle and bring home what we don't finish.
