Not there. Need to update the app. Plus a lot of other useless letters.
Never disappointed.. the food is delicious and original tho a bit pricey but worth it.
We enjoyed the chef's sample plates (5) where we picked 3 and the chef picked 2 of his choice. As the restaurant is closing/changing we did our Valentine's dinner early. We will miss the interesting seafood choices that you won't get any place else.
Thanks Jose for a one of a kind restaurant in Omaha!
We ordered the 3 course meal foe thirty dollars, it was unique and good but a total rip-off. The value of the food was equal to about 10.00 or less. Not even the size of a young adults finger was the serving size.
I Would highly recommend this restaurant. Unique food and drinks. Everything was fabulous!
Always a pleasure to eat here. The food is prepared superbly, and the service is always fantastic.
We had an 8:15 reservation for our anniversary. We did not get sat until after 9. 20 minutes after being sat we had to flag down a server due to no one coming to our table. Apparently the servers had miscommunication and each thought the other had our table. The menu that was advertised online was not available. We both had crab cakes that seemed like they had been sitting for a long time before coming to our table. We both had lobster for our main course and it was so over cooked we didn't even eat most of it.
Our reservation was at 7.45pm and we actually got seated at a table at 9pm. We understood they were very busy and it's hard to know how long diners will take. We were offered champagne while we waited. Our food however was awesome and staff very attentive.
Creative presentation and delicious, savory seafood dishes. Quaint and romantic setting! Really a Find!!
This is my favorite restaurant. If you want amazing full flavored dishes come here. Everything is fresh and hand made. Chef José's sauces are divine. Every time I eat heat I want to pick up the bowl like a little kid and sip on what's left over. The food is also incredibly low price for what you get. We ordered 75% of the menu and the bill was $160. This included drinks, 3 full entrees and every appetizer they had on the menu that night. He also uses sustainable food sources if that is important to you. Here's what you and your significant other need to order: Apps: seafood board, ceviche, beef heart skewers and lamb skewers. Main course: waygu beef stir fry and whatever his fish of the day is. You can't go wrong with anything you get there. LOVE YOU TAITA <3
This s a great little restaurant and I am so glad I was finally able to give it a try! Arrived and was disappointed to see the scallop two ways dish wasn't on their newest menu but saw a few other items that compelled me to stay. Ordered the crab risotto, asparagus and sautéed bok choy. The crab dish was excellent and both the sides were good but a little saltier than needed. As an added plus, the bartender made a version of their cubra libre with ginger ale - I loved it too! I will be going back ~
Loved the seafood! We came in on a quiet night, enjoyed the service, and felt it was a great value for the quality of food.
We've loved this place since we found it a few years ago. Best prepared food in Omaha, quality fresh ingredients. The chef brings eclectic dishes to the table. We've had almost everything on the menu from scallops, trout, crab and red snapper. Yucca fries are a must!!
While we successfully made reservations for a birthday celebration dinner via Open Table, when we arrived the restaurant is actually closed Sundays and Mondays which is not indicated on the site, and we had to find a different spot to celebrate.
Taita is the very best restaurant in Nebraska!
When you consider quality, creativity, presentation, atmosphere, and price.... This is the best place in Omaha. The beef heart is amazing.
Tried the Omaha Restaurant Week menu. The place itself is really small but the food is awesome. The best part was the steak, probably one of the best I've ever had and well worth the money.
I had the restaurant week tasting menu which was delicious. My husband had calamari, ceviche & escolar grilled bites (there was a specific name) and they were all very good.
Terrible experience! Arrived at 6:55 for 7:00 pm reservation. The hostess said there was a disconnect between Open Table and their reservation log. Seated at 7:05, drink order not taken until 7:13, drinks arrived 7:18, appetizer order taken 7:3o and arrived 7:45. We asked about the slow service and were told there was "only 1 guy" in the kitchen. We finally cancelled our dinner order and paid for our drinks and app at 7:50 with the hostess...she didn't have any urgency for the situation which made the situation more frustrating! Only 1 server in the restaurant with the hostess seemingly sitting behind the bar, which only had 4 people. She definitely could have been out on the floor helping! I will not return or recommend this restaurant!
Great restaurant that was unexpected in its' surrounding.
Though there were only 3 or 4 tables occupied and we had a reservation it still took 45 minutes to get an appetizer that was a cold dish. Glasses went empty for periods of time and the food portions were teeny bites for the price. I would not recommend this place at all.
Ever since I lived in Peru, ceviche has been my favorite dish, and Taita makes a good one.
Another wonderful experience!
It is always a treat to see what the menu specials offer. We had the seafood specials and the flavors are always exquisite. This is our place to go to celebrate special occasions and when our daughter from Boston comes into town, as this is her favorite place to eat!!
The flavors, quality, and presentation of the food at Taita were on par with Michelin star cuisine, but left me with a curious feeling. Oh, wait, that was my bank account over-drafting and my still 1/2 empty stomach aching for more than just one lone octopus tentacle on a meagre bed of arugula. This lone tentacle was perfectly seasoned, juicy, sumptuous, exquisite...I could go on...
What I would have done for just one more succulent tentacle, and what my boyfriend would have done for just one more mini medallion of that precious Wagyu beef.
I cannot complain about the quality of this food. It truly was lacking nothing but quantity, and it's the kind of food I will day dream about for the next year. The yucca frites are a MUST, the huancaina sauce was better than any I had in Peru. The ceviche was fresh, citrusy, and unique. The beef heart with chimichurri was perfect.
I don't have a problem paying that price for small plates, but when I do so, I expect it to be in Chicago or Denver or...anywhere but Omaha...and I expect it to be a bit more of a "fine dining" experience—not with crying babies or loud drunk people at the bar. I'd say know your Omaha audience, double your tiny portions, or make the prices more affordable so people can order multiple small plates.
Overall, I still give it 4 stars!
Unfortunately, with piles of student loan debt hanging around, I cannot justify returning here for quite a while.
the food is amazing. the chef is very creative and is probably one of best restaurants in Omaha if people knew of place. think..really fresh seafood with Peruvian/Japanese flare. try the ceviche and octopus! great mixed drinks. try the pisco sour!
My favorite place to eat in Nebraska. Everything about it is perfect to me!
I dined with a friend and we split calamari as an appetizer, an entree (the monkfish tamale) and two side dishes. The entree was delicious but the rest was only ok. The service was somewhat slow in the beginning - even though there were only a few other tables. At the end, we were the only people left in the restaurant even though it was only about 9:00. The waitress kept rushing us out - taking our plates (without asking) even though we still had food left to eat. All in all a bizarre experience.
Taita never disappoints and we have been eating there for special occasions ever since it open ed. Jose is a wonderful chef! We have out of town family that look forward for a meal at Taita's.
The creativity of the dishes, the beautiful presentation, and the eclectic atmosphere make
Taita more than the sum of the individual ratings. The service may not have been perfect, but it was friendly and welcoming, and that is even more important. My fish may have been just very slightly on the dry side, just a shade short of perfect, but I tend to like fish more rare than some people, and the sauces were great and the presentation was dramatic. Since everything is a la carte, it gets a little expensive, but absolutely worth it, and the novel side dishes are a big part of the attraction. I haven't seen too many places in Omaha with fried yucca! We had heard great things about Taita, and it lived up to our high expectations. We are definitely going back.
Food was good nothing spectacular. Service was HORRENDOUS. Sever kept making excuses saying it was the kitchen but I watched othother servers run circles around her
We were celebrating a special occasion. I noted in my reservation, and mentioned it to our server when we arrived. She said, "Happy Birthday" and that was that. I am very willing to pay for something extra to make the dinner or dessert extra special, but there was nothing. Second, everyone's food was delivered except mine and she didn't notice. Everyone waited but after 5-10 minutes we had to flag her down and ask. I think she had forgotten because she was able to bring it right out. Those things were on the server - the food was really amazing. Zucca fries were incredibly tasty; calamari, better than your ordinary appetizer. We had the white fish which melted in my mouth, salmon - which was comparable to how we might have it in Seattle or San Francisco - artfully prepared and not overdone or overly seasoned. Other dishes and side dishes were all amazing. Flavorful, fresh, delicious.
This is a really interesting seafood restaurant. This is probably not a good restaurant for kids, or someone who doesn't like seafood. Limited bar menu, but the drinks they have are good. Sometimes they change their menu on the day, due to fresh catches or special seafood that they have instead of the regular menu.
The atmosphere is great for a date or nice dinner, and the food was GREAT! We had calamari for appetizer, which was perfectly cooked. I had the scallops 2 ways, and I loved it. My companion had the octopus, and again, great. Good service, I will definitely be back.
Always enjoy the chefs presentation and creativity with flavors/texture of the meal
Sadly, Not as good as it once was
The new menu is great, especially the Peruvian soup.
Went to Taita early for dinner on a friday. The food was great but it took over an hour to get it, when we asked after at least 45 minutes of waiting, we were told that " this is just their timeline". They have sides but you have to order them separately. My side didn't come until about 10 minutes after the main dish arrived and when it did it was less than luke warm. I told the waitress and she took it back to have it heated up and instead returned from the kitchen explaining that it would take too long so they just took it off the bill. We felt a little put off by this, like the chef was more or less telling us to get out, all they had to do was just warm up a bowl of mashed potatoes, I can do that in 30 seconds at my house. Anyways, the food really was great so my advice is go, if you are a foodie, go and check it out but make sure that you have a cheese plate or something somewhere first because its gonna take an unapologetic while to get the food.
We waited a very long time without our food. waitress checking on us and no apology. The market price halibut special was sadly overcooked. The side dishes, especially brussels sprouts and quinoa were delicious. Overall, Taita has a nice atmosphere but food was mediocre and service was poor.
The Peruvian soup was so flavorful and a great addition to the menu. Love all the new changes to the menu, calamari, brussel sprouts, and look forward to trying all the new food items.
We had visited Taita when it first open and was not impressed, at all. Two years later we decided to give this neighborhood gem a second chance (yeah, it took quite long). Second time around, i must say we were indeed impressed. The Chef sushi was innovative, fresh, and flavorful -- really superb.
Our server was a delight and incredibly knowledgeable. The only thing, we ordered the "fish of the day" which we were told was chilean sea bass, and it came out as grouper. I think she was confused, i heard another server say the "fish of the day" was grouper. We didn't say anything.
