We found the staff to be courteous, attentive and unassuming. The ceiling is high and there are picture windows all around, so it felt very open in a comfortable way. Lighting and artwork are relaxing. I have tinnitus, so it was very pleasing to sit back and relax without having to battle echoes and noise. I ordered tenderloin of beef and never had to use my knife- the fork cut right through it. The flavors in everything we ate were delightful! Bravo!

Great location for a quiet date night. The staff was engaging and delightful. The restaurant was intimate but you still had the view of the outside as a result of the great space and the glass exterior.

It was Berkshire weekend so there were lots of people from all over which made it fun & interesting.
The service was impeccable & never overbearing.
I had the duck legs which was very good but I should have ordered the sea bass! Since I wasn’t paying I thot I ought to be thoughtful. A well..next time ;).
My boyfriend had medallions w/crab. The meat melts in your mouth. At first he thot it wasn’t very much food but he couldn’t finish.
We loved the fresh shiitake mushroom casserole.

Excellent evening! Joe made us feel very welcomed at the door and was very knowledgeable on wine pairings. He also made two awesome craft cocktails. Rachel was an excellent server who knew menu and made great suggestions. Our meal was fabulous. Best beef filet we have had in awhile - perfectly cooked and seasoned. I had the braised veal cheeks special with gnocchi in a beet sauce - 5 star as well. If you haven’t been here — YOU MUST GO! They have been an Omaha restaurant for over 24 years for a reason. Great ambiance and 5 star service and food! Thank you Joe and Rachel for making our birthday evening wonderful.

Excellent service, food presentation is lovely, nice pairings of meat dishes with vegetables, and the deserts are works of art with equally impressive taste/flavor. A bit pricey, but excellent quality for the $.

This was our 40th anniversary and we wanted a nice place to celebrate. This is an upscale restaurant near the Old Market area of downtown Omaha. The staff was excellent, our server (Grace) was exceptional. The atmosphere is casual but upscale. The eating area is not large but seats (approx.) 50+. Windows all around and very comfortable. This is the bottom floor of the Flatiron building which was originally a office building built in 1912, and converted to a hotel in 1914. It is now offices and commercial space. It gets its name from the shape of the building - an old flat iron (triangular shape).

One of the best meals I've ever had! We had a large group that included people with specific dietary needs. The server and chef were both extremely helpful and accommodating. The service was friendly and prompt. The food was amazing! Yes, I spent more than normal for me on dinner, but it was a special occasion and it was worth every cent!

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!

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.

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.
