Boiler Room Ratings and Reviews
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.
Beyond fantastic; a phenomenal experience from top to bottom. I cannot recommend highly enough. Our waitress was amiable and informative. Her recommendations were spot-on and my cocktail was exactly what I wanted. The appetizers and entrees were perfect; my mom has a number of food allergies, and the kitchen was thoroughly accommodating. And the creme brulee was the best I've had. I can't wait to find an excuse to go back.
Great choice of wine, but a bit pricey. Nonetheless, one can find a good affordable wine with a minimum of knowledge. Short menu, but includes meat and fish, all well prepared and quite different in taste (our waiter gave us the wrong plates and it took us a few minutes to realize it ourselves, so we had a few bites and therefore tasted 4 out of the 6-7 main courses available). The decor is stunning and the music good, but not overwhelming, a big plus for me.
This was very romantic restaurant! Our waiter was excellent and so attentive. The menu was very limited, however what we did order arrived perfect! The roast pork loin was the best I've ever eaten. The wine selection was fabulous. We would definitely return!
The food was excellent, the vodka martini was perfect, but the experience was too rushed. There needs to be more to expand it. No soup, no salad. Just a cold piece of complementary bread. If you don't order an appetizer, it's entree, desert, and out the door in 45 minutes or less. If I'm spending over $150 for two, I expect more.
Over priced with just ok service and food. We waited over 30 minutes to get out first drinks. In fairness, we were told they were busy but the two tables beside ours were empty. We are foodies who have eaten all over the world and we don't mind paying for good food and wine. The BR had been highly recommended and it just didn't live up to our expectations.
The Boiler Room was highly disappointing in terms of service and the quality of the food served. When eating, our server tried bussing both our meal plates and cocktail glasses before we were finished. She was also very invasive during our time spent at her table. She was constantly rearranging the dishes in front of us and even asked us to move our hands so she could place a dish in a specific spot on the table. She would also move our drink glasses around. It was very strange and made for an uncomfortable experience. We were also less than pleased with the desert option. We couldn't even cut into the tart that we had ordered because it was so hard. We had to pick it up to bite it in order to eat it. The portions are very small, which is expected to be the case at a classier restaurant. Despite being delicious, the price is not reflective of its quality. I would not recommended this restaurant to fellow date night goers.
Our first trip to this restaurant. After I made the reservation online I called to ask if they had valet and they told me no, to just park in front and come in and get a tag to put on windshield, which I did. I told them it was our first time here and this was a business dinner. He asked if we wanted to be in a quiet area away from everyone which I liked. Overall it was a great meal and experience. My business partner from NYC was even impressed.
Only complaint is the City of Omaha needs to put some attention to fixing the street out front.
Was disappointed in the service and quality of food. The waitress was apologetic, but surely, you can anticipate the number of diners you will have since there are reservations. The chicken entree was overdone. The sirloin was very underdone. There was an expansive wine list, but no cranberry if you wanted a cran vodka. Several people at our table were very uncomfortable with the chairs. We had a back corner table which was a bit isolated from everyone else. The only thing we could see was the kitchen below which added to the high temperatures in the restaurant. We chose this restaurant based on reviews and recommendations. We expected to pay high prices, but, also expected to get value and great service. The menu is limited, yet, again, another reason it should not take so long.
I wouldn't go back or recommend it to anyone.
Everybite was amazing! Plating presentation and table service was impressive. The pork belly app was deliciously paired with pickled shitaki mushrooms on a silky bed of potatoes. Whole fried cod was crispy buttered goodness.
My only negative was the slight pours on the wines. I was quite surprised by how little the glass was filled. For such a great job on every other detail, it truly was a glaring stand out. I only mention this to hopefully improve the pours so future diners may have a nice glass of wine with their amazing meal.
