Ordered pasta that was rubbery and shrimp topping also was hard to chew. Like this restaurant but not up to usual standards. Would not recommend based on this experience

Courteous and professional when I made reservation over the phone. We were greeted with and seated immediately with the same wonderful attitude. Racheal waited on us and tends bar and she did an outstanding job caring for us. The flatbread we had was wonderful and the prices were very reasonable.

Average all around. Server was not particularly friendly. Food was salty, and okay portion. Don’t think I’ll be back.

Appetizers were ok. Entrees were well below average. This place is trading on its reputation from 5 years ago. Used to be one of the best restaurants in Omaha. This was the third subpar meal in a row. Taking it off the list.

The kids pasta changes depending on what is made. Didn’t realize that and kids did not enjoy and don’t want to go back.

Brussels Sprouts and Cheese Curd starters were amazing. I had the chicken replenish pasta with roasted poblanos. My wife had the chicken Schnitzel. We were huge fans. They have diet Dr Pepper, as well, which is a huge plus.

The server didn’t take a food allergy seriously. When “seasonal vegetables” turned out to be a legume, which was explained to be the allergy; the plate was sent back. The server immediately became inattentive and, frankly rude. He wouldn’t fill water without being sought on the other side of the restaurant. The manager Zach did step in and comp multiple items, including the entrée, and the appetizer that came out after the main dishes.
Overall, not the experience we hoped for. For the prices and expectations from previous visits, this makes us question returning.

My mother and I went in for the first time over the weekend and we had an excellent experience. Our waiter, Knolan, made our time so fun and enjoyable. He answered all our questions and was very friendly and polite! The food was delicious and the drinks were perfect! We will definitely return, and hopefully have Knolan as our waiter again!

Food was interesting but a little under-seasoned. Knolan was a great server, very engaging. Nice quiet place for an evening out.

Went to Railcar for a birthday brunch and everything was wonderful! Our server was excellent, both helpful and attentive. The food was outstanding as well. The drink pricing was awesome - unlimited drinks for $13 and you can mix and match. We had a fun celebration and highly recommend.

My wife fell down the steps while walking to the bathroom. She was OK, but, this made the visit somewhat disappointing.

This place has potential and the food would’ve been good if it wasn’t literally room temperature when we received it. Our banked potatoes were not cooked thoroughly and at these prices I feel they should be. The decor was a great thought that wasn’t executed well; it was as if a child had painted the interior walls and DIY signs. The exterior is also nothing exciting as the signs seem outdated and the bulbs were burnt out leaving them half lit. I’m not sure I would return here.

Our dining experience at Railcar was amazing! Our server, Nolan, was probably the best server we have had in the last five years... attentive, personable, and an absolutely lovely person (so wonderful that we double tipped <3 ). The food was scrumptious. My tween daughter had the medallions and ate every bit; my husband had "the best French onion soup" he'd ever had; I chowed down on the chef special Pork Delmonico...the pork was perfect. And the desserts... OMG. So delicious. We were delighted with Railcar and completely stuffed. Our plans to have leftovers were overcome by the sheer tastiness of the food! The prices are pretty high; but if we could afford it, we'd make this a weekly outing. I believe that we have found our new favorite fine dining restaurant! Thank you, Railcar!

The hostess and waitress we’re super friendly and helpful. The waitress was totally responsive and as my prime rib came out a little too rare she very effectively got it to the way I wanted it. Great experience here on a Friday night and they were busy

Dishes were way overpriced for the quality we received. Prime rib was fatty, baked potato way over baked and pasta we ordered was way too acidic and salty.

The restaurant was ok and fairly clean, but had a weird smell the whole time. Food was overpriced and bland. We ordered a burger and steak. Staff was overall very quick and helpful.
