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.

Excellent restaurant! My wife and I took my son and his girlfriend to celebrate his first job. The service was warm and friendly from the start all the way to the end of the evening. All the entres were very well prepared and offered a creative flare with a unique presentation. The food was delicious. The filet was cooked to perfection as as the salmon and the duck. The wine list had just the right amount of vintages to chose from without massive selections which can bog you down. The service was excellent! Flat Iron understands is not just the food but the experience that makes the evening. They do it right. Highly recommend!

This spot is outstanding. I have had dinner here twice now and both times the entire meal has been off the charts. The calamari appetizer was spectacular, something which was somewhat unexpected being from the Midwest as compared to the coast where I have had it in the past. In addition, the t-bone steak main course was cooked perfectly and was tender with well-cooked asparagus. An outstanding meal and quiet atmosphere with great staff.

We are Angus beef cattle ranchers and both of my daughters said the steak ( one filet, one ribeye) was the best they had ever eaten. I had the medallions and they were good. Clam chowder soup was magnificent. Wish I could have ordered a glass of wine, but only sold by the bottle. Delightful atmosphere and attire ranged from sweatpants to suitcoat/the. Waited was excellent as was every staff member. Coffee was perfect.

Wonderful food in a beautiful setting. I had the duck and hubby had a steak. The steak was melt in your mouth delicious and the duck was exceptional with an orange glaze. The service was top notch and they have signature cocktails.

Our server was fantastic. The quality of the food goes without saying. Everyone loved each course we ordered. I can’t eat onion or mushrooms - both of which I love, but I forgot to ask to have the pico de gallo on the side of our appetizer. I planned to just pick around the onion, but our server was wonderful and had the chef remake it. He made great suggestions for all aspects of our meal and we had a great discussion about bourbons and scotches as well as wine! This is a fantastic restaurant made better by a great server!

Wonderful dinner, as always! We had a last minute addition to our party, and the Flatiron accommodated us without a problem. The salmon entree was delightful, as was the sea bass. Service is always prompt and courteous, and we made it to the Orpheum in plenty of time for the show. The Flatiron is one of our favorite restaurants in Omaha.

I had the sea bass which had outstanding flavor! My partner had the salmon which was prepared exactly to his liking.

For Valentines Day the restaurant was serving the Silver Oaks cabernet by the glass. Although the cabernet would not have been our natural choice with seafood, it was definitely a highlight for us on the drink menu.

The restaurant was full, but the service was well-paced for a leisurely night out.

Everything about our Valentine's Dinner was perfect. The FlatIron focus on the customer's experience is obvious. No wait for reservation which is almost unheard of. We especially enjoyed the side dishes that accompanied our entrees. The Shittake mushroom and fingerling potatoes were our top pick. Will defintely return.

We had a wonderful time at the Flatiron for our Anniversary and Mike, our waiter was amazing! He understood the menu and the wine list, making recommendations that we trusted! I had the Sea Bass, which was so good and sweet and my husband had the salmon with Soft Shell Crab which was incredible! It’s A wonderful place to dine not just eat and leave. Plus the restaurant is so welcoming and pretty! Looking forward to eating there again soon!

Our first visit to a restaurant we found online. The food choices were excellent and the food presentation was wonderful. Staff was extremely helpful with parking options as we struggled to figure out how to pay at the meter. The staff member actually came out and told us where we could park for dinner and for leaving our car while we attended the theatre. The entire staff was courteous, friendly and attentive. We will definitely return when we travel two hours to attend the theater.

We ate here before a performance at the theater. Got right in with reservation, service was great, and the food was excellent. Really enjoyed the squash appetizer, and the old fashioned was one of the best I've had (kudos to the bartender). They also made sure that we were able to finish with plenty of time to walk to the theater. Will be back.
