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.

Marks Bistro Ratings and Reviews

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.

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.
