The Flatiron Cafe Ratings and Reviews
I'm from Vancouver, WA and go to the Flatiron every New Years Eve with my partner, brother and his wife and 2 young twins. Have done so since the twins were born and just had our 5-year "anniversary" of going there. I love to eat out and travel a great deal so consider myself very fortunate to experience a wide array of dining from the quick sandwich to a 5-star cafe. The Flatiron is no doubt one of my favorite stops in the US! Everything about the dining experience is outstanding: food, presentation, ambiance, service. And we were fortunate to have Colin as our waiter this time. He was wonderful with the 4 and 1/2 year old twins (and with us adults as well). Already looking forward to NYE 2018! Ann
We have been going here 1-2 times a year for the last 4 years. As always the food was great and the chef is amazing. The only disappointment was during desert because they no longer offer the chocolate tulip cup. This was what my wife and I look forward to on our anniversary but it is no longer available. Maybe need to find a different restaurant. Wife was really disappointed on our anniversary due to this.👎 I know it is fairly small issue but it was important to us.
Had a great meal. Wait staff asked if we were going to Orphean that night so they could have us there on time. I had steak, cooked perfectly. Wife had salmon with soft shell crab which she said a delicious. Had gone by it so many times, finally said we are going to eat there before on of the plays, and were very pleased.
This is a destination in Omaha that everyone needs to experience! The ambiance is one of a kind, as is the food. Drinks were tasty and the food absolutely delicious. We were a bit late for our reservation to due to an accident on the interstate, so I highly recommend having a reservation. Located near The Orpheum, it is a special place to stop and have a meal or even a dessert and coffee before a performance. It is quaint, elegant and a one of a kind place. They were busy, yet attentive. Appetizer was awesome, as was the soup. Entrees cooked perfectly. Only draw back was seated by the door/entrance — which got a little chilly from time to time when the main door opened for people coming/going. Price you pay for sitting by the door and living in Nebraska in the winter. Overall, this is a wonderful special occasion place and you will have a great experience!
The food was outstanding - no complaints there.
However, we had a 7 PM reservation. At 8:30 we still hadn't received our main meal. There were 4 of us and people who came in after us had gotten their food. Also, they did not have any soft drinks because their "gun" was out of order. I guess no one thought to go purchase cans of soda/tonic until a repair could be made.
Our dining experience was excellent until extensive cooking odors and some smoke filled the dining area. Unfortunately one of the kitchen exhaust fans was not working and the smoke and related cooking odors pervaded the restaurant. Thus our experience was not optimum. We would rather not have been there on such a night. Was everything done to remove the smoke, I.e., open service doors, etc? Could we have been advised of this since the fan was off for more than 24 hours?
The Flatiron continues to impress year after year. If you’re going to charge north of $40 per plate in Omaha, Nebraska you’d better have it all put together. This place does!! Apps, soups and our meals were outstanding. This continues to be a very reliable special occasion place and has not let us down. Well done!
