About the restaurant
The Sage Student Bistro operates as a customer-focused classroom providing our students an opportunity to refine their culinary, bakery, service, and supervisory skills in a setting where the element of time is as important as the food and service. Because this is a class, the Bistro is open when the students are in session. A standard menu and weekly, student-designed prix fixe specials are offered during dinner. For guests interested in booking a Showcase: Culinary Team Nebraska lunch, reservations can be made at the following website. https://coned.mccneb.edu/wconnect/ace/ShowSchedule.awp?&Mode=GROUP&Group=SPE&Title=Special+Event

We had dinner at Backlot on Memorial Day. We had a reservation and were seated immediately. The pizza (Butcher’s Word and Pepperoni) and wings we ordered were amazing! Drinks were delicious and well-priced. We will be back!

Delicious and creative dishes. We especially enjoyed the Mediterranean Burrata starter and beet salad! Don’t miss a visit to the hydroponic garden downstairs. We look forward to coming back the next time we are in Omaha.

I was in Omaha on business, and it's always difficult to find vegan food options when I'm on the road. Thus, I was very grateful to have learned about Modern Love from a DD&D show and it lived up to its billing. We split the nachos molo which were amazing (and huge), and I had the Mushroom Fried Chick’n and my colleague had the Classic Mac & Shews. Everything was delicious, loaded with flavor, and the portion sizes were generous. Great place that I'll definitely revisit the next time I'm in Omaha.

My husband and I walked out of PF Changs saying “that was just OK.” We will be just fine if we don’t make it back there again. Service was wonderful and SO FAST! But the food, despite its great presentation, lacked in flavor. The Orange Chicken was dry and the Pad Thai didn’t have much flavor, I needed to add soy sauce for a little something more. The Edamame was good! And the Crab Wontons were real crab, which was awesome, but again, just missed the mark with flavor. Ambiance was great.

T was good. Service good. Food good. My only complaint as the crowd increased so did the noise. Is the music necessary at that point?
