Always a great variety of entrees served in intruding ways. Service was good, especially considering it was NYE. Railcar is always a good choice!

This was the best New Year’s Eve dining experience we’ve had in years. Service was great. Food was hot, delicious and quick. New Year’s Eve can be challenging for a restaurant, but add a pandemic, hard to find staff and a party of twelve to top it off but somehow the Railcar pulled it off. They did a great job. Thank you for making our New Year’s Eve enjoyable!

We went for Christmas Eve dinner. Server was prompt and efficient, cordial but not overly friendly. We all ordered from the special menu and really enjoyed the meal.

The whole experience was fantastic and we loved our server Nolan he was wonderful! We had several selections and everything was fantastic. Definitely kick your meal off with the crabcakes and the adult pizza rolls! We will definitely be back.

Had a reservation for brunch for 5. We were seated at a table protruding into an aisle, which made everyone a little uncomfortable. No classic Tabasco available. They had other hot sauces and other flavors of Tabasco (chipotle?).

Went with a friend for happy hour on 12/11. We ordered the charcuterie board. What a disappointment. It was missing the late as indicated on the menu. We asked our server and she checked with the kitchen then told they were out, we received no substitution. The presentation. Of meat on the board was the biggest disappointment. The prosciutto was not nicely sliced but piled in clump like deli meat and the wild boar sausage was not sliced but liked like scrap pieces. The server said the manager would be over- 15 minutes later he showed up. I don’t recall what was said except the server filled me in and we “dropped the ball” Do you think ?! He took ithe board off our tab and we paid for our drinks and left. The manager did not want to hear our input and obviously had other things to do. Oh well - I will not return.

PS I wish I would have taken a picture- and wish the sou chef our server said makes awesome boards would have put our together.

One of our favorite brunch spots …But Brunch has slipped. No omelette options any longer. Two biscuits but only one egg and one sausage patty on stack.

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.

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.
