Second time to eat here. I liked it so much we took the family for our daughter's birthday dinner. Will definitely go back again and try something else. The salmon was delicious. And our waiter and staff were great.

We had reservations yet people coming in without reservations were being seated before us as we waited 30 minutes past our reservation time. We even arrived 15 minutes prior to reservation. The meal was served less than 2 minutes after we orderd and before our appetizer. The meal was less than decent and cold.

Our table of four enjoyed Sunday Brunch at Twisted Cork in the Old Market. This was excellent dining on a late Sunday morning. Dress was much more casual than I anticipated (still not TOO casual). Very good food and excellent service. I would recommend for brunch.

The food was amazing great drinks at a good price! Wonderful server great attitude and very attentive! Only downfall was we were put in corner in the back by a large party. ( felt very constricted or trapped) Host had a hard time getting us to our table,but manager did address situation didn't do anything to fix or right the problem but did at least acknowledge there was some difficulties getting us seated. Over all I would go back just ask for a different table if they tried that one again.

Great casual atmosphere. Salmon fingers are amazing. The kids loved them and they are on the kids menu but we ordered more for the adults. Last year was first time to Omaha and we stumbled upon Twisted Fork. This year when we were in town again, we made point to have dinner here again.

Went for NYE. Was okay. They had a special menu but still allowed us to order off the regular menu, which was nice. No heads up prior to making the reservation, only days before, that there would be a special menu. Our waiter was good, we liked him. But the food was mediocre and barely warm when served. Not what we hoped our NYE dinner would be but it was good enough as we did eat our meals.

We ate here last week and decided to come back a few nights ago for our wedding anniversary. The food is very good, the service is excellent. The waitstaff couldn't be nicer. I had the ribeye and it was wonderful.

Wa very disappointed in the food. Although the vegetables were prepared wonderfully the chicken and the meatloaf were not. The meatloaf was hard and dried out, almost as if it was cut too quickly and not given time to rest. The chicken was bland and tough. Over cooked. Will not return to the restaurant.

I had only stepped in here one time. The food was really great. Mac and Gouda for two of the four of us, I had the steak salad which was amazing, full of lots of lettuce, mushrooms, steak and some potato strings, blue cheese, and no idea on the dressing but it was the best salad I've had in a long time! The other person in our party had the french dip and she said it was really good, but she was wishing she had ordered something else in the end. I appreciated our waitress who was not overbearing but she was very helpful and she got everything right from our drinks, to the app and on to our meal. I will definitely recommend this place and I will go again.

Unfortunately, we showed up for our reservation this morning and there was a sign on the door stating they were closed due to remodeling. I understand unexpected things happen but there was plenty of time to send an email or phone call to let us know. I was looking forward to trying this restaurant and wish we hadn't driven to the old market to find it closed ☹️

The pork chop was super juicy! The chicken fried bacon was ok. It mostly tastes like "fried" with little pieces of chewy bacon.

A nice place to eat. The staff was friendly and welcoming even to the 3 small lively boys we had with us. Nice choice of foods and drinks that accommodated even our gluten intolerant people. The décor was charming and atmosphere was fun.

Overall Twisted Fork is a pretty great place to eat. Because of it's location, parking can be difficult on weekends. Some of the seating is pretty crowded. The atmosphere, I would describe as, is "rustic chic" The bathrooms could be cleaner, both times I have been here the bathrooms were a mess and yet the place wasn't that busy. I am a firm believer in, clean bathroom, clean kitchen....

More of a bar than a restaurant. Made reservations several hiurs in advance, specifically reauested to be seated outside or by the window, we were then seated at the back of the restaurant. The gravy for the mashed potatoes was terrible.

We were seated quickly and served our wine. The restaurant was short staffed and turned away many diners. Our meal was slow but delicious when it arrived. The food didn't suffer for the wait so the chef had persisted in delivering a nice meal. Our server checked often, updated us on the food arrival, and apologized that the kitchen was behind. We didn't mind and have previously enjoyed small plates on the patio served quickly. Worth going but it was too bad they were short workers and turning away business on what could have been a bigger night with eclipse patrons and Creighton ramping up.

We arrived early and waited for our table to be cleaned off about twent minutes. Ordered a Nebraska staple red beer and a glass of wine. Drinks came but the tomato juice was Bloody Mary mix. Went up to the bar for tomato juice. No tomato juice could not believe no tomato juice. Chicken pot pie was good as was the steak salad. Pretty noisy lots of full tables of girls before Lady GaGa
Concert. The only recommendations from a red beer drinker is to get tomato juice or tell the wait staff only have Bloody Mary mix. Gave the beer to the next table to drink.

I was staying over in Omaha for one evening before flying out in the morning. I decided to try the Twisted Fork based on reviews on line. It was better than expected. The people were super friendly & the food was excellent. After dinner I strolled around the market area looking in the shops & enjoying a beautiful summer night. I was glad I went early because it was 1/2 price bottle of wine night and by the time I was done with dinner the entire restaurant was full.

This menu offers "comfort food". My husband loved the chicken-fired steak! The rest of our group had the meatloaf and french dip dinners. These dinners were ok, not great. We will return again for the chicken-fried steak.
