V. Mertz is locally-owned, and we pride ourselves in offering artisan products and cheeses, organically-grown local produce and Wagyu beef, and sustainably-farmed and line-caught seafood. We believe that dining should be an event, and to this end Chef Jacob Newton has created a harmony of food and wine, culminating in our extravagant Tasting Menus.
Perfect for business or pleasure, V. Mertz is the premier fine-dining restaurant in Omaha.
We are always willing to discuss closure of the entire restaurant for private parties of 30 or more guests.
V. Mertz was as lovely as it always is. I love the staff, they are polite, accommodating and generous. We were a table of 5 and we were able to enjoy much of the tasting menu. The server was attentive and knowledgeable, all items were prepared beautifully and the technique was perfection on all dishes.
It was as memorable an experience as I’ve come to expect.
More people should go, keep this Omaha institution going!
What a magnificent restaurant, with amazing service, and beautiful food playing/presentation. I loved how they have really figured out service delivery and delighted us at every turn - an amuse-bouche, wine pairing recommendations, really took care of us. Always impressed by the Omaha food scene everytime I'm in town
Great staff, awesome food, special place.
This was probably our fifth time at VMertz; and it was the best one of all! The food was extraordinarily good---we took some of the recommendations letting the owner and chef choose our cheese choices as an appetizer. My husband and I shared the braised beef heart small plate (it was actually good!), and then we each chose a different entre. My husband's Waigyu beef was just about the best beef I had ever tasted (and I have had Kobe beef in Kobe, Japan.) My yellowfin was also done to perfection. What makes this restaurant float way above others in Omaha? The knowledgeable staff and their explanations, the ambieance they create, but mostly the food they craft. Yes we had beef and fish, but it was elevated to not only beautifully arranged plates, and there were unusual combinations that complemented the protein. I just don't think you ever find the combinations and quality of ingrediants at any other Omaha restaurant. I can unequivably recommend this restaurant and feel assured that my friends and family will share a very similar experience.
Great as always. This is our go to place every month for their new monthly tasting menu.
My girlfriend's favorite restaurant. Will definitely be our 'special occassion' go-to spot!
our meal was fabulous. I feel our waiter may not have been as experienced or was really distracted by another table that was ordering some very expensive wines, which he was catering to more than the other patrons, including us. David. our service in the past has been exceptional. this time -n definitely not so much.
Always love what Jake pulls off. We’d follow him anywhere. That being said, the tasting menu did not disappoint. Solid plays on classic dishes with a lot of eye-opening, jaw dropping surprises.
The food was delicious. The flavors were exciting. The service was fantastic. We continued to talk about how much we enjoyed the whole experience for days following our visit.
I really wanted to like this place. Everything was setting up for the perfect evening out for our special occasion... great ambiance, good server, amazing menu (ordered the $125 American Wagyu steak)... so imagine my horror when the steak came out, and right after placing it on the table, the server poured sauce all over it... the $125 steak.... covered in sauce...
The tasting menu is always excellent. I love the variety of food. Cocktails are always interesting and very tasty. All wines are also excellent.
Fine dining in an iconic Downtown setting without being touristy. Imaginative food perfectly executed.
V. Mertz never disappoints! The food, especially the cheese plate, and service were outstanding. It's become our go-to date night restaurant.
If you are looking for a quiet romantic evening with the BEST food, BEST service, BEST atmosphere and overall BEST experience, then this is by far, hands down, the BEST restaurant in Omaha. My wife and I literally just let our hair down here and let David and the rest of the wonderful staff do the "driving". My Morgan Ranch Waygu NY Strip was the best meal I have had in a really long time. Phenomenal! My wife asks them to just come up with something for a cocktail and they have all been super! I would recommend V. Mertz to anyone looking for these things.
My wife and I enjoyed our date night. VMertz is our "go to place" when in Omaha. Our meal was wonderful, the service and food/wine recommendations were excellent. We look forward to our next visit.
My favorite place in Omaha by far. We dine there everytime we are in town. It was our 20 year anniversary this last time.....made a special welcoming menu for the two of us. If you are in Omaha and dont go here.....you missed the best in town!
Don’t loose your touch VM....you guys are a corner stone to fine dining in this town.
Service and food were excellent. Their interpretation of a chawanmushi was interesting. The wagyu steaks were pretty good also. My favorite was the charcuterie and the cheese board.
Love the food! The staff is always awesome! We have been here many times in the past year and the food and staff are consistently amazing!
Thank you for an amazing experience
Exceptional. From the very start, our server Daryl was outstanding. Wow. Incredible amuse-bouche, wine list, and small plates. The tasting menu looked fantastic, but we went for an a la carte dinner. Daryl paired wines with every single course we chose. The squash blossoms, beef heart, duck egg, and wagyu NY strip were out of control!! Definitely check out their desserts and after dinner drinks. All around amazing meal - quite an experience. Thank you!!
Quite possibly the best meal I have ever had! Surprisingly filling, flavorful and unique. It was the perfect dinner!
Perfect as always
Birthday dinner with my twin bro and our wives was outstanding from start to finish, glass to plate. Born and raised in the area but have never been so I wasn’t sure what to expect.
I’ve been lucky enough to eat at Michelin rated restaurants across the country and this can hang with the big boys...but I would argue that the atmosphere is significantly more approachable.
Dillon was on point with wine recommendations for the meal, with both knowledge and demeanor that made the experience one of my favorites.
I don’t get “home” often, but when I do I’m coming here.
Proud to have this place in Omaha!
V Mert is amazing. The food is beyond description. They thrive on local sources so the taste is fresh and changes. The wine list is great. I love wine. The staff handles my wine selections. I was beyond please.
Just went to 2 of the top 5 restaurants in Denver. V. Mertz makes them look pathetic on every measure. We're regulars and have never been disappointed there.
Absolutely outstanding. Great service, ask for Dillon! Amazing food across the board.
Probably the best tenderloin I’ve ever had and I’ve eaten at many 5 star restaurants in the country. The ambiance was so charming I felt like I was in a rustic cave. Wasn’t too loud which was nice. Our server explained everything perfectly. They even personalized our menu for my birthday which was a nice touch. Would travel back to Omaha just to go again!
Amazing. Everything was perfect. Worth every dollar. Go. Eat. Treat yourself to a wonderful experience.
The atmosphere and food were excellent. The menu is limited but both my wife and I found something to try. The stake was one of the best I've ever had. The wait staff was knowledgeable and helpful. The only potential negative would be the prices. You're going to easily spend $100 plus for a dinner for two.
Fabulous! Service was maybe a bit slow on a Thursday night but overall the experience was wonderful! Don't pass this up!
Always a life changing experience. The only place I have ever been that I eat something I have never tasted before.
Alex are waiter was very knowledgeable. Great food and ambiance. Very friendly staff.
Excellent service, excellent food, and the sommelier picked a lovely Barolo for us. We will definitely be back
It’s always a great treat to go to V Mertz. The food is outstanding and our waiter (whom we always ask for) David, is the best. One of our favorite places to eat.
Note that this place is high scale. Chicken was reasonably priced around $25 but some items were as much as $129 which im sure are worth it if you have it to spend. Very romantic
Always a delight.
Best in Omaha
Food was excellent as was the service. Worth the price. Nice drink list too.
Love V Mertz! Food is always good and different. Waiter, David, does an excellent job!
