Contemporary American
V. Mertz offers our guests a progressive, contemporary American menu with an emphasis on seasonal and local ingredients. We offer an award-winning wine list of over 400 selections. The restaurant is located in Omaha’s historic and picturesque Old Market Passageway, within walking distance from the CHI Convention Center, The Holland Performing Arts Center, the Orpheum, and all major downtown hotels.

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 Jonathan Miller has created a harmony of food and wine, culminating in our extravagant Tasting Menu.

Perfect for business or pleasure, V. Mertz is the premier fine-dining restaurant in Omaha.

    What a culinary journey! Traveling for work and received a recommendation. From the small plates, to the scallops, to the dessert, this was an experience! The cab was a great pairing with everything. Our waitress was so helpful in the experience, and it provided a much needed escape to a difficult day.

    Innovative menu. Several steak choices for those who are not adventurous. Lots of interesting combinations for foodies. Great value for the money. Server was very knowledgeable about ingredients and preparation also sourcing. A most enjoyable experience which I would be delighted to repeat next time I’m in Omaha. Well done from small plates through dessert. A fabulous food experience.

    V. Mertz is a lovely little spot. Everyone enjoyed their dinner. However, I ordered the Halibut, which was so salty I couldn’t eat it—also, there was no valet parking and a bustling area. We drove around 10 minutes and finally found a spot on a lot, $16 to park. I should have taken Uber.

    Food is always great and service is always top notch! We were there for a birthday meal and menus had “Happy Birthday” printed on them, nice to see the personal touch in addition to the great service!
