Boiler Room Ratings and Reviews
It was out Anniversary. The waiter was horrible. He barely In engaged with us, I had to ask about special. He never offered us cocktails, another bottle of champagne. He was very boring!! In that sort of environment you need to be on top of it. I don't know if he was new or what, but he didn't leave me with a good experience. We couldn't wait to get out of there. He never even offered after dinner drinks he just slapped the menu down. Food was pretty okay.
The cocktails and food were outstanding! From the charcuterie plate to sweet corn soup to Monkfish and lamb shoulder all of our orders were prepared perfectly. Our server was very knowledgeable and made great suggestions for wine pairings. We will certainly be back!
I was so impressed with my latest visit to the Boiler Room. We couldn't decide on apps, so we decided to order them all, plus entrees. Our server, Evan, coursed out the meal perfectly so that we could enjoy each dish without feeling overwhelmed. He also expertly paired wines with each course. The Gruner Veltliner was our favorite with the shishito peppers and cobia crudo! The cocktails and dessert wine were also fabulous. Overall, this was one of my favorite dining experiences in Omaha so far.
As always we loved the Boiler Room. There was a large party there and although our food and drinks never arrived late or had any issues, the waiter seemed very flustered. We are used to getting pretty attentive service here and that fell a bit short, I assume due to the large party, which I understand.
We really enjoyed dinner here for our anniversary. Open Table asked why we were dining, I clicked "anniversary" and when we arrived our menus said "happy anniversary!" The staff was very attentive and wanted us to have a great experience. The food was amazing and I loved being able to watch the chefs making the food. I would definitely go again! Just for another special occasion though, as the prices are a little high.
Hoped for the wonderful lobster but enjoyed other options. Thank you for safe, gluten free adapations to menu and attention to separate prep in kitchen. Helpful, approachable
sommelier. Loved the round table for six guests--everyone included. Thank you. Lovely evening.
Great! Been there 3 or 4 times.
Great atmosphere. Our waiter? Maybe the owner? Not sure-but he was very knowledgeable about the food and picked out a nice bottle of wine for us too. Only complaint-my snap peas weren't a pleasant color and tasted blah
Husband loved the lamb belly!
Very creative menu.
I tried this place after seeing in the Design*Sponge city guide to Omaha, and it didn't disappoint. We were driving cross country and stopped in a few big cities along route 80. Having never been to Omaha, discovering the 'old city' was awesome, tons of vibrant character. The ambience, service, and food were excellent. Can't say enough good stuff about our super attentive waiter. We had a cheese board and the charcuterie to start, and for main courses the Porchetta and Salmon. We also tried some of their specialty cocktails, and all were on par with the best restaurants in Philly. Wasn't the cheapest meal ever, but if you want a guaranteed solid experience after a long drive, this place is worth the stop.
IMO, this is the best restaurant in town. The menu changes frequently. Everything on the menu is delicious, just give it a try. Their wine list is truly impressive, and they offer samples if you aren't sure what you will like. It's pricey, but completely worth the experience. This place is a total must.
Best meal we have had at Boiler Room inventive without being confusing. Wine was outstanding. Sommelier was knowledge and not condescending. Waiter (woman) was very good and properly attentive. Noise level higher than desirable but tolerable.
Thank you for a lovely evening. Several meals in the past had something to be desired and a wait person was arrogant so this time the wonderful food and service was very much appreciated and we will come back.
I highly recommend the Boiler Room. My wife and I go there often. Great food and great atmosphere with first-rate service. The menu is very good; it has never disappointed me. Wonderful food combinations that are very well prepared. I enjoy being able to view the kitchen area and watch the food being prepared.
My wife & I went on a Friday night & the ambiance, food & overall appeal of the restaurant were very good. Rustic & industrial looking location with brick-face, but very quiet & romantic . The appetizers were unique and excellent, we had the Asparagus Rotolo and something with Pork Belly, asparagus & egg white emulsion. We also enjoyed a cheese plate with a local Prairie Cheese plate. For our main courses, the chef was nice enough to prepare a special vegetarian plate for my wife (which changes daily but is apparently always available) and I had the Pork + Italian sausage with beets & polaenta. Both were delicious & good size portions. My wife tried a couple different types of wine & I had the Blonde Redhead, which were delicious. Our bill was about $130 + tax. We would definitely go back for a special occasion
Simply looking for a non-chain dinner, we opted for the Boiler Room. The menu was interesting and the presentation perfection. It was not your average fare while being completely edible. Friendly staff who were attentive and appropriate. We had a unique experience.
Several disappointments....could not get a Bloody Mary (what bar cannot fix a simple BM?). Then no brand name gins (ie, no Bombay, no Beefeaters). The entrees were very limited and the food was OK but not great. Service was good, a little pushy in the beginning. Overall it was average and at these prices there are lots of places to choose from that deliver much better than average. Disappointing....used to be better. Reminds me of our last experiences at Grey Plume so maybe it is a top-down type of problem. Same management.
Our waiter was quite helpful. Offered samples of wine to select a bottle from. The menu, although limited had very good appetizers and entrees. Especially enjoyed the Pork Tongue Pastrami. Overall, we had a very enjoyable anniversary, and will definitely visit again.
Fantastic service and perfect som recommendation! The food contains loads of local ingredients and is amazing. Wine list is a droolworthy collection of French things....loads and loads of whites and rose and bubbly options! Charcuterie is not to be missed. You will wish you went here sooner if it's your first time.
