About Marks Bistro
Marks, established in 2003, was built into a historic, turn-of-the-century home nestled into a quaint business district in Omaha’s historic Dundee main-street neighborhood that has thrived since the early 1900’s.
Marks’ vision for the menu is to create dishes with a hint of French influence, balanced with some Asian accents, along with good old American.
European, Fusion / Eclectic

In addition to street parking in front, we have five spaces in the rear, off the alley, two reserved for handicapped access, and the law office across the street (4913 Underwood) has given us permission to use their spaces in the evening. There are 8 spaces behind their building, and it is almost never full.
Private Party Facilities:
Marks has several areas available for private dining for groups as small as 5 people up to 60. These private spaces have become the favorite for many Marks regulars, as they are almost like dining at home – charming, intimate, and yet fully indulged with good service and Marks’ fine food.

The patio and garden area is marvelous on those quintessential al fresco opportunities. Inside is nice as well, can sometimes be noisy in the main dining area depending on numbers of people, etc.. Great private reservation areas for small to medium size groups. Tables for two along the window are terrific and can be especially lovely on a snowy winter evening.

Delicious food, lovely patio, superb service, great ambience. We have dined at Mark's a few times and our experience has always been exceptional. If the weather is good, choose the patio! Our table of 6 chose the roasted chicken, pork loin, mussels, salmon, and the hot and naked pasta. We all loved our selections!

We were celebrating an anniversary and so looking forward to eating there last Saturday. We sat outside which was beautiful! We enjoyed the happy hour.
For main course, my husband ordered the Lobster & Bay Scallop Risotto, it was sooo bland! There was no taste!!! I ordered the Hot & Naked Linguine, it was pretty good but nothing great. The other two people we were with said there's was okay, but then again we came there for their anniversary so I don't think they wanted to admit.
Unfortunately, we left there kind of disappointed when this wasn't our first time coming here. It's been great all the other times... It will be a while before we try again.

Very good atmosphere, enjoyed the experience very much. One thing we did not enjoy was the conversations the servers were having. We sat in the back where the door was to get in and out of the kitchen. There were a couple servers standing there using profanity. It was not a huge deal but it was something my girlfriend and I talked about when we left. Food, service and everything else was fantastic though!

Best ambience , food, service staff, great wine list, great value for the price AND in a great neighborhood. Mark's is my go-to place to meet friends and take out-of-town business colleagues. Cannot say enough good things. Thank you for being Mark's!

WE finally got to sit outside and enjoy the beautiful garden terrace! The food was amazing, as always! My husband loved his Birthday celebration! This has become our "go to" spot for special occasions since we moved here a couple years ago.

This place was phenomenal! I took my boyfriend out for his birthday dinner to Mark's and it did not disappoint. It was a little on the pricey side, but you get what you paid for. The appetizer we got, along with the food and drinks were well worth the special occasion we had went out to celebrate! Not only was the food terrific, but the ambiance and the service was spot on as well. I have always been and will always be a fan of the Dundee area. Highly recommended!

Bistro Tots are excellent. My wife had her favorite house mac and cheese and it's never let us down. I tried a new special which was a take on Filet Oscar. Two Filet medallions topped with lobster meat sauce and puréed asparagus with fingerling potatoes. It was very tasty and looked beautiful. I always try one of the specials and have never been disappointed. We will be back again and again.

Food was very good and it was quiet enough to easily visit with friends. They took great care to prepare my husband's dinner without any dairy products. We greatly appreciate that extra effort -- we know it is a pain for the chefs!

The food at Mark's Bistro has always been excellent. The Creme Brule is especially wonderful. Love the patio dining with all the beautiful flowers. The staff is always friendly and I appreciate their sense of humor.

I'm a native hawaiian and appreciated your attempt at the poke. But cutting the Ahi tuna that small ruins the texture of the poke. Bigger chunks are better plus some soy sauce. I get itssupposed to be gluten free but maybe salt

Marks is a steady for us. This experience wasn't our best. Weak, flat cocktail. Food fair but in their defense I ordered their steak special but their best meals are seafood. Sides lacked seasoning. All in all just an OK night. Sorry Marks.

Dinner for a special gathering with friends I hadn't seen for months - only 4 of us. We had a very enjoyable evening - all but the service. The waitress was very nice and professional but it did take an extremely long time for us to receive our meals.

The food was wonderful and the service was great. It was a hot evening so everyone was dining inside. Unfortunately, we were seated in a cramped corner with a large group next to us. That made it difficult to hear each other. The dining room overall was loud. Normally, an evening at Marks is intimate and much more enjoyable. That said, we will still be back. The food makes it worthwhile dining.

We had an amazing server who was knowledgeable about the menu. Food was excellent. Good price for what you are getting. It was a great experience I would definitely go back. It was a little loud in the restaurant but that is goes to show how busy and great it is.

My wife and I went to Marks to celebrate our 18 year wedding anniversary and it was ok. The restaurant was very loud and compact. We reserved a 8:15 pm table on a Saturday and it was so loud we didn't realize music was playing till we left at 9:30 pm. Food was good but not the best we had ever had. I don't think we would go out of our way to make it back again.

The service was very good even though our waitress also had a larger group to serve as well. The food was a little slow in coming as our order got in behind the larger group, but the atmosphere was pleasant and the environment conducive to conversation so all worked out well. I would eat there again and would recommend it to others as well.

I like the restaurant atmosphere, however I was not impressed with the flavor of the food, i felt it lacked spices seemed plain. The staff was wonderful and the speed of our orders were quick. I might go back to give a different entre another chance but not anytime soon.

We got the lobster and scallop risotto and it was really good. The gnocchi was good and unique. We got the corn puree as a side, my fiance liked it a lot but it had a funny taste to me. Worth trying though! Every guy was wearing a collared shirt, we came from driving from MN and never been there so my fiance felt a tiny but underdressed in a v-neck and nice khaki shorts.

Marks is one of my favorite spots in town. Nothing beats a half-price bottle of wine during happy hour and some bistro tots! Great service and a nice, quiet retreat from the usual hustle and bustle of Omaha dining.
