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

Jambo Cat, our cocktail lounge located just under Marks Bistro, offers live jazz on Thursday (7-10) and Saturday (8-11) nights.
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 20. 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 menu offered a good range of selections in each category. THe appetizer and meals we ordered were delicious and attractively presented. Our service was prompt which was important as we were going on to a concert.

LOBSTER AND BAY SCALLOP RISOTTO IS DEVINE. ENCOURAGED MY OTHER DINNING PARTIES TO ORDER THAT, 1 DID AND HE REALLY ENJOYED IT. MY OTHER FRIEND WAS VISITING FROM THE WEST COAST. HE ORDERED THE SALMON. HE SAID "IT'S NOT BAD, FOR SEAFOOD IN THE MIDWEST". OVERALL, THIS IS A GREAT PLACE FOR DINNER!

I dine at Marks whenever I am in Omaha (we have a second home in Dundee) and I was excited to invite some Colorado friends to dinner there. We had a reservation for 3 and were seated at a table barely large enough for 2. The space was so tight that we had no room for our plates. Our server informed us that there was no other table available even though we arrived at 5:30 and were in an almost empty room. I felt like a second class citizen. Although the food was good the uncomfortable arrangements spoiled the evening.

The services were great! On one of our meals the sauce for the steak were changed by the chief for experiment and we were not big fan of it (it was sweeter), so the waiter gave us free dessert to make sure we enjoy our dinner!

Perfect spot for our lunch group of 7! Quality comfort food, with some enjoying Mark's signature Mac & Cheese; I opted for the wonderful roasted Brussels sprouts. Moderate prices and friendly, attentive service. We'll be back!

We ordered the tots for our appetizer and each had a glass of champagne. For our entrees I had the butternut squash risotto and my husband had the short rib sandwich. The server was attentive. Great place to celebrate a special occasion without breaking the bank!

Mark's is my go-to restaurant - just to meet a friend for lunch or dinner or to have a business lunch. With plenty of DELICIOUS vegetarian items on the menu - as well as yummy home-made ice cream - I am never disappointed. It's a wonderful spot to bring out-of-town guests. I eat there one to three times a week!

Mark's is our go to place for special occasions and entertaining out of town guests. Food is always outstanding and service is great. Noise level is only drawback on Friday and Saturday nights. Lunch is always quiet and week nights acceptable.

Was a great place for a date night for me and my husband. It was fancier than we thought it would be, but well priced and perfect! The view down to Underwood right through Dundee was beautiful both before and after sunset with colorful fall leaves and pretty white lights. The food was outstanding, so flavorful!

The atmosphere at Mark's is always enjoyable, especially the patio dining. Some of the menu items have been the same since they opened, and I feel like those items are going downhill in quality, as if the kitchen has gotten to comfortable in how the recipe goes together so they don't pay attention to detail anymore. I am also surprised to not see bread served with dishes like the Risotto or the Mussels, I personally feel like bread should be offered with all entrees.

We loved the ambiance and setting of Marks. However, in our opinion the food was terrible and slightly too fancy for our taste. My husband got a flat iron and is was very very rare and didn't have much flavor. My hot naked pasta was just as unflavorful. Higher priced food for not the best flavor. Will most likely not be going back but if you like more up scale romantic dinner this could be good for you.

We were given a gift card to Marks Bistro from a friend so we decided to check it out. Marks Bistro had great food and great specials. I ordered the Salmon and Gnocchi and my Fiancé ordered the special which was a pumpkin Risotto. Both dishes were amazing. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone and we will be back in the future.

We had a 5 Star evening at Marks. I normally dine here with friends for lunch, so was elated when the chance came to bring business friends from New York City for dinner. They were favorably impressed. The menu is creative, the food is always good. Our server was delightful, making suggestions, being attentive but not hovering. In our experience, the menu doesn't lend itself to kids' dining. However, the staff always makes kids feel welcome. On a nice day, the outdoor dining is lovely. There are some lovely wine choices.

Had a lovely time at Mark's for my husband's birthday! Our waiter Jon was awesome!
Wished we could have sat outside, because it was a lovely evening. Should have put
that on my reservation I guess! The Whiskey Bread Pudding and homemade ice cream is
fantastic! We will be back!

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.
