Railcar Modern American Kitchen Ratings and Reviews
Food is really good, but a little pricey. Service was a little slow this time around. We had to ask tell them we wanted an appetizer vs being asked. This was after they walked passed us several times. This is the only time this has happened to us their and they weren’t that busy.
I made a reservation stating that one diner had Celiac Disease and let the server know as well that I needed gluten free due to a medical condition. On their website it states that the Executive Chef/Owner worked with the Celiac Foundation to create more effective dining options for allergen sensitive diners, so I felt comfortable trying this place for the first time. I ordered a side salad without croutons and after eating half of the salad I found crouton crumbs hidden underneath the lettuce. So, the kitchen clearly just took the croutons off and mixed the salad so I would not notice. My main meal came out, which I ordered salmon, and the meal was not modified correctly to be gluten free so they had to remake that. The server was very apologetic, but it was clear that the wait staff and kitchen were not knowledgeable about proper food handling when it came to allergens. The server then brought our bill out and we were charged for everything and a manager never came to our table to check on a customer that they made ill. I will not be visiting this restaurant again and I would urge anyone else with an allergen to steer clear as well. If they are so careless with people's food that actually have a medical condition, I don't want to even think about how careless they can be with the general public's food.
I got the Prime Rib which was recommended as "the best in Omaha". My family got there food first which was fine but then had to remind the manager I didn't get mine. After 15 mins mine came out that was literally 50%+ fat and thin. This was supposed to be the 16oz cut obviously they weren't ready with the Rib before and we're trying to make the weight by giving me so much fat. Then the waiter agreed that it didn't look right so I sent it back only to have the Manager argue with me. She is in over her head but did comp that meal and my wife's.
We have loved everything about Railcar until our latest visit. Our party of 8, there for a birthday, was at the restaurant for nearly 2.5 hours due to poor, slow service. Our drinks were warm (several times), we easily waited 30-45 minutes just to place our orders, we didn’t receive plates or silverware without asking. Please note: it wasn’t busy to the best of our knowledge, several empty tables. 4 members of our party ordered the special (printed on the menu); we were informed they were out and only 3 servings were available, and those servings of meat were extremely fatty and over-cooked. I’d like to note that some of us were extremely pleased with the food; our appetizers were exquisite and the salmon was heavenly. But the overall visit was so poor, the quality of food was overshadowed.
It almost seemed like new ownership or management was in place during this last visit, as ALL of our previous visits were wonderful. Unfortunately, we may not return to find out.
The Brunch was absolutely delish! I had the Eggs Benedict but it wasn't like a "normal" one. They seem to put there own twist on the dishes. Would love to go back again to try more of the menu! Very friendly staff! Also LOVED the menu wasn't overwhelming so it was easy to chose something.
This place is very surprising. From the outside, it looks Ike a sports bar or something. I’d never stop if I were just driving by. The inside is really nice though. I love the Railcar look in the main dining room. That is pretty cool.
Everything we ordered was really good. We had the popcorn chicken and it was very tasty. A very tiny bit of spice...not much at all but still very good. The pretzel bread they bring is really tasty as well.
We had the schnitzel, saltimbocca and gnocchi for dinner. So, the gnocchi “dinner” is a bit of a joke. This is an appetizer size portion...at least of pasta. There are 3 meatballs which is nice and they were moist and flavorful but there were a total of 5 gnocchi in the dish....no joke. I counted because at first glance, I only saw 2. I thought they may have actually forgotten to put them in there. My fellow diners even commented that it looked like I had gotten no pasta. Most places don’t give you a ton of gnocchi as I order it often but at least a dozen or so. The ratio of meatball to pasta was very off. That being said everyone loved their entrees and the rest were all very good portion size.
I love the Railcar, I especially love to take friends from out of town, it’s a great dining experience and it’s such a surprise sitting in that little shopping area. The service is awesome, all of the staff are friendly and accommodating. It is truly my favorite place!
Our waiter was perfectly Personal. He knew the menu very well. We started our meal with the Short Rib flatbread. I had the French Onion soup which was very good. My wife had the Scallops. She asked to substitute the Risotto for Vegetables. The Scallops were seasoned and cooked perfectly. I had the Prime Rib. The Au Jaus was the best I’ve had anywhere. I believe the waiter said there were seven spices added to the broth. And for dessert was the carrot cake which is beyond anything I’ve had before. The best part of Railcar is the consistency each time we dine there. Not sure if there’s a better place to eat in Omaha.
I was hoping this would be really, really good based on reviews. It was okay. My husband and I ordered the prime rib, his a 16 oz am mine a 10 oz. When we finally got them, they looked identical. We addressed this with a server, and then a manager, she said the cost would be changed to a 10 oz on the bill. It wasn't, so had to mention it again before it came off the bill.
My husband and I went for a late lunch on a Saturday. I had the Railcar roast chicken salad and my husband had the Cubano. To be honest - both dishes were okay, not great. The chicken was dry and the salad - which was supposed to have onions and heirloom grape tomatoes - mostly was just lettuce. The dressing was pretty good. My husband said that while the Cubano was pretty good it was pretty salty due to the prosciutto. We've been here before for appetizers for dinner and the appetizers are amazing as well as the cocktails.
Zachs back managing! I'm sure things will get back up to the way it was a couple of years ago. He's a great asset.
The kitchen had timing issues the nite we went but the server was a champ and the food was good, otherwise I would give it 4 stars.
We will be back.
Sixth time...food very good as coextensive. Our server not so much. He pushed us to orde then brought our appetizer and soup at the same time. I asked him to slow down and he grumbled at me. He came back a few minutes later and asked if it was ok now to put inn the order but he did so with a big time attitude! He pushed the bill and complained about the mess he now had to clean up! The restaurant was not busy on a Saturday night.
They were busy with brunch. The manager kept us informed of a table to seat us and let us know ahead of time they were a little behind. We had small children with our group so that was helpful to know they were working on our table. The staff was very attentive and as always the food was really great. We will alway love the lemon pancakes too!
The service was good. The Chicken and salmon entrees were delicious. We also had the roasted brussels sprouts appetizer. The sprouts were cooked perfectly, but lacked flavor. It was not busy at all during lunchtime. More people should check it out. It's perfect for getting off the congestion associated with Maple and Dodge roads.
We had missed this local gem even though we love nearby. They have an incredible menu and everything we ordered from cesar salad, flatbread, now in burger and scallops to Belgian style beer was amazing. Our server Brad made it extra special. Certainly plan to take the whole family and friends on future occasions. Absolutely great place to dine. Also learned that they are famous for their incredible brunch.
The food was excellent! The service was very poor. We had to ask to have our water glasses filled numerous times. Our desert that we received did not match what was on the menu that we ordered it from. We commented on that fact and the person sent to our table to hear our complaint was very rude. She did apologize and took our desert off the bill and gave us a $10 gift card in hopes we would come back.
