V. Mertz is our go-to for special occasions, not just because the food is *outstanding*, but the staff always go above and beyond. It becomes a true night-out, not just a dinner.
Very nice ambience but the service and food were just so so.
Wonderful dining experience! I would recommend the tasting menu along with the wine tasting.
5 star service and food. A classic classy spot in Omaha that is consistently amazing. Romantic atmosphere
Wonderful Anniversary Dinner!
V.Mertz is always a fun and delicious experience. I had a few small plates, or appetizers and a dessert. They were beautiful and varied. The service was excellent.
Fantastic graduation dinner. Wonderful staff. All courses, cocktails, and wine were superb!
Very good place for a date and good wine and good desert
David, our waiter, is so great...
he really makes the dinner experience special-
a real pro!
Had a great meal in a tremendous atmosphere. The steak and sauce was simply delightful.
we were disappointed in the food. I had a chicken dish and I felt that it was not cooked enough. It came with two tiny carrots which were hard and one tiny sliver of beet which was also very hard and two tiny mushroom and my husband had salmon which had a strong smell when it came out so it was not fresh. His dish came with a broth and two tiny mushrooms and a tiny amount of lentils. We did ask if we could order some extra vegetables but they said they had none only what you get with your dish. The desert was good it was a lemon sponge cake with white chocolate. It was good but again very small. We were celebrating our 49th Anniversary and sadly this Restaurant was a big disappointment. It is an expensive restaurant and they also charge for a basket of bread and again a disappointment only four small rolls served hot but not much flavor. Their coffee was good. I would not recommend this Restaurant to my family and friends.
It was a great place to visit. I would Definitely recommend.
Always have a great time there and David is a waiter is the best the food is excellent and very Unique
We had friends in town and wanted to show them Omaha. V. Mertz did just that. Our server was amazing she explained things I'm great detail she was very knowledgeable with the wines, the coctails and the food. This is me and my fiancés 2nd time here and we will absolutely be back.
We love visiting. I love how they keep track of our past orders and help make decisions on what to select.
Post Covid vaccination celebration
Great experience for my first visit! Server did a great job explaining the interesting characteristics of my dishes.
Love this place. It is a must go to if your out of State.
Thank you for a wonderful evening.
Absolutely loved our meal! The service was impeccable with knowledgeable staff and a relaxed perfectly spaced out meal. We will absolutely be back!
My husband and I celebrated out 18th wedding anniversary at your beautiful restaurant.
We were greeted, checked in and escorted to a table with a menu that on the top read "happy anniversary." We enjoyed the tasting menu with wine pairing, service (thank you Charles) and the ambiance. We are so grateful for restaurants of your quality. Thank you for an absolute wonderful night out.
We did a Tasting Menu and everything was outstanding from the food to the drink to the service. We were extremely happy with everything!
Wonderful! Amazing food and excellent service.
Probably one of the best meals I’ve eaten. Amazing!
We had a wonderful time.
Had a great anniversary dinner at V Mertz. We’ve been going for over 30 years and it is always amazing. Waiter congratulated us on our 23rd anniversary even though we haven’t told them for years when we were married. Great attention to details and knowing their customers. Thank you very much!! See you again soon!!
Amazing food and service - outstanding Omaha restaurant
The food, service and location are really good, perfect for a good dinner
Service, as always was excellent and the food exceptional!
While the meals are pricy they are well worth the splurge for a nice dinner. The New York strip and lamb were both delicious entrees and the desserts were incredible. The service was also superb.
I loved everything about V.Mertz! The ambience, the service, the food. It was all top notch! I can’t recommend this place enough.
Thank you for helping me celebrate mine and my wife’s 9 year anniversary. The food is always amazing.
This place is a must for that romantic date night or just to have a wonderful fine dinning experience. The staff from the moment you enter welcome you and make you feel special. The waiter we had was knowledgeable, kind, patient and human. He had genuine things to say that made you feel like he was listening and cared about your presence.
The food is pricy but reasonable for the experience your mouth will be put through. My wife had a roasted chicken that she now calls "desert chicken" it was that heavenly. Shes tough person to wow and she wowed!
This was our anniversary dinner and they put a small memo on the menu acknowledging that, which was a un asked for and welcome touch to already special night.
Thank you for the special service, the care put into the dishes, and the overall experience. BRAVO!
Wonderful experience dining here. Accommodating with allergies and celiac disease in our party. Beef was fantastic! Highly recommend.
Felt a little too much like a dungeon
What an amazing place! Enjoyed the tasting menu and wanted the sommelier to upgrade the wines. Brought us some great new pairings on the fly and very knowledgeable! Will definitely be going back
Ingenious combinations of ingredients to make entirely new flavors.
Another memorable dining experience. Thank you! The caviar w/ chips was fun to eat & delectable, lamb & Wagyu steak were delicious & the wine pairings our waitress chose enhanced our meals. As per usual, the staff made the meal. Our waitress was there when needed but also gave us space to enjoy our meals. Overall, a perfect evening.
Excellent service as always
The food was good but service left much to be desired. Was placed at a terrible table in a pathway between the bar and the kitchen. Had to stop our server several times to ask for things - another drink, dessert menu, check.
I ordered a dessert wine that wasn't brought to me until after the dessert arrived and I asked about it. It was obviously forgotten.
The food and atmosphere was delightful but the service turned an otherwise great experience sour.
Absolutely outstanding. Every bite was delightful. Our only regret was standing up after the meal and realizing we ate far too much.
