    We had reservations for 10:45. Nobody even came over to the table to ask about drinks until 20 mins later. The food came out at noon and two of the people had to leave before the food came out because of the time. The service was terrible and there was no compensation.

    It took 40 min. to get a cocktail once seated. We finished our appetizer before they came. Ordered prime rib med. Rare & it was well done, the cut next to the end. Will not return.

    Food was wonderful and the attention to detail in the meals was a pleasant surprise. I enjoyed every aspect minus the noise level. It was a packed house and I’ll try again at maybe less busy time if that’s possible. But no matter the traffic I will come back you guys are amazing!!!

    We brought an out of town guest as we always do, and did not disappoint!! I missed Lobster Hushpuppies, but the tomato toast & bacon wrapped shrimp were splendid too. Stroganoff, beef medallions & chicken schnitzel we’re all outstanding, as were toffee chocolate cake and cronut sundae. Don’t miss it!

    Food was overpriced for the portions you get. Pasta and burger had no flavor. Server was rude and acted like it was a huge inconvenience when we asked for a second round of drinks.

    The food was very good. Although, me and my date both ordered the chef specialty roasted prime rib because it was a special on the menu. The menu said the order came with a soup or salad. (Please see the image attached) I asked the waitress which soups were being offered that day when I was talking about the special, she told us. Both of us ordered soup. When the bill came, they charged us both for a soup. We explained that we thought it came with the order. She asked her manager, and she still insisted that it did not come with it. The manager did not come to the table to address the issue with us. Therefore, we will probably not return due to inadequate service.

    We have never spent that much on a meal ($200+) and walked away hungry. My husband had wild striped bass. It came with no sides. He ordered a side salad - extra charge. I had Prime Rib. Worst prime rib I have ever had. No flavor. Tough. Even the baked potato had no flavor. We won’t be back!

    Spent $195. It just wasn’t worth that. Started with appetizers of cheese curds and pretzel bites The cheese curds were served in a bowl and were all stuck together, they were served with a really small side of dipping sauce that didn’t fit the appetizer it was served with. Pretzel bites were okay Caesar salad was okay, but the lettuce had lost all crispness. Felt as though it had been setting in the Caesar dressing for awhile French onion soup was a lot of cheese The salmon was really small. Put your first three fingers together and that’s about the width of the fish Jambalaya looked as though it had been reheated in the microwave The filet medallions had a great char on the outside but were very rare on the inside Prime rib was 12oz, bland, very thin cut, had to ask for horseradish and wasn’t given any au jus Baked potato had a little, cheese, chives, some bacon bits and sour cream. There wa no butter No salt or anything on the table Server, he was okay. A little arrogant and condescending I did not leave a great tip. For $195 bucks I would expect a much better meal with much better service.

    The food was great when we got it. It did take a while and came out very sporadically. Service was very slow, but I’m sure that depends on the server you get. Overall we were happy with our food experience and would go back. Have patience, we went the day after Xmas so I’m sure it was short staffed.

    Railcar is always a safe bet, but the brunch is hands down the best. The breakfast nachos, ricotta pancakes, pile up… so amazing. You get a ton of food for the prices and the service is top notch. The regular brunch waitress that covers the bar area is our favorite.

    From the moment we walked in the reception was cold. The hostess was rude. We made a reservation and still they did not have a table ready. The wait foe the food was ridiculous and when we did receive the food it was terrible. There are many amazing restaurants in Omaha and this is not one of them. Don’t waste your money!
