This wonderful gem of a restaurant never disappoints. We went to celebrate our anniversary and even though they were ridiculously busy that night, the service was wonderful, the food was fantastic, and the ambiance perfect.
Amazing food and wine! We had the tasting menu with the wine pairings and it was divine! With every penny spent! Not only was the food great, but the service was amazing too especially our waiter and sonmelier!
Great experience! Our waiter/sommelier Dillon was very informative and recommended amazing pairings for our appetizers and main course. Wonderful spot!
Incredibly delicious food as always. Drinks were superb and the service just can’t be beat! It remains our very favorite restaurant. In the very many years we’ve been eating here we’ve never once been disappointed in anything. How rare is that!? If you haven’t been to V. Mertz you NEED to grab a table for a night with friends, a special occasion, or a meal before a concert or show. Don’t be intimidated by the menu. It’s super approachable and every person in this restaurant is more than happy to answer any question you might have, like “What the heck is bulgogi?” We both has the salmon this time around and it was dreamy.
Meal was superb- our server, David, was friendly, yet very professional.
Food was amazing but service was not good. We had empty drinks (water and wine) the majority of the time. We also had to flag our server down when we wanted to order our food or drinks. Atmosphere was great, but unsure if we will return due to the service.
Amazing service, amazing food and a beautiful environment.
Restaurant was quite busy and seemed understaffed. Food and setting is excellent. Had a delightful evening with new friends.
Service and ambiance was great. Salmon and trout were good but NY strip was terrible
Great food, knowledgeable and great service. The food was creative and delicious. This was one of our destinations while in town
Great service and fantastic food!
Enjoyed our attentive waiter, unfortunately I cannot recall his name, but a great accent. I overheard him tell another table that he has been with VM for a number of years.
The location is truly amazing. The service is top notch. The wine and food pairing is great. We were there for a wine dinner. The food is GREAT.
Nothing to add
Georgie was the BEST! And drinks by Ben were divine. Thank you guys for the best birthday dinner ever! Everything was absolutely perfect & I can’t wait to return.
They gave a Hamilton menu while the musical is in town. It is fabulous, and great deal!
Amazing service, they all make us feel like we are family. Amazing food, fun tasting menus, amazing ambiance, fancy cocktails and great wine knowledge! My favorite restaurant in Omaha!
The food and service was top notch! What we always enjoy is the "on-the-house" appetizer served upon arrival. Always something new and creative...and delicious. Another 5-start evening.
Always great service and food. Very knowledgeable wine service. If your in town—-GO! Go once and you will go back. I go every time I’m in Omaha.
Incredible! I don’t think we will forget that dinner for a very long time. V Mertz should do more dinners like the Hamilton/Jefferson dinner. And it was great seeing David. Loved every minute of our night!
We love the food, environment, and changing seasonal menu! Our favorite in Omaha.
Delicious tasting menu, fantastic service, and a solid drink menu.
Amazing service and a true foodies delight.
We had a great time and Georgie was a wonderful server. She is very knowledgeable about the menu and gave us the right amount of care.
Food wise we got the duck ravioli, green beans, and scallop crudo to start. Everything was super fresh and coursed out in a good order. For our main we ordered the chicken for two. A whole chicken 4 ways that BLEW OUR MINDS. Everything was well done.
Thanks for making our 7th anniversary special!
The staff was friendly and provided excellent service, however improvements could be made.
We chose the 5 course dinner with wine and after we made our selection, it took more time than it should to receive our first glass of wine. We were on the verge of ordering drinks just prior to our first glasses of wine being delivered. The wine was excellent and paired well with the courses.
The course were our main disappointment. While each course had a unique flavor, several of the dishes were overly basic and a common theme was a lacking portion size.
While the ambiance, service and food was great, we would recommend sticking with the a la carte menu as the value of the chefs choice was lacking.
We were visiting Omaha for a few days and V. Mertz had high recommendations from Open Table, so we gave it a try. Great ambience - an old restaurant tucked in a passageway off the street and down a flight of stairs. We were greeted by name when we walked in. Ordered Hidden Harvest Heirloom Tomatoes as an appetizer, and they out of this world. The 8 oz NY Waygu Strip. came out maybe a degree or two shy of medium rare, but with the brandy cream sauce, it was excellent. My wife ordered the eggplant schnitzel and raved about it. The service was impeccable. Definitely a high end restaurant where two will spend over $100, but worth it for a special evening.
this is just one of my favorite restaurants in Omaha. There is no risk taking anyone there, and the service is excellent, consistent, and timely. I thought the food was fantastic. They have one of the better selections of French white wines in the city.
Fantastic as always. Perfection from start to finish. A must visit when in Omaha.
Charming restaurant in Old Market. Unfortunately it took 45 minutes to get a bottle of wine we ordered. Also, it was a 3 hour dinner. Everything just took an extremely long time.
Wonderful menu that changes daily!
The seasonal small plates are sensational, along with top notch service, makes this a special place to dine in Omaha .
I’m usually not a Wagu fan but the 8oz filet was about as good as I’ve ever had.
Kudos to the chef and staff!
Once again V.Mertz hits it out of the park. Mr. David and his team took extraordinary care of us and we just had a wonderful evening. As I have said before, this is the best place in Omaha (indeed in many places) for a romantic dinner. My wife's snapper and my Waygu New York strip were beyond amazing. This is a place where you let them "drive". You know it's going to be awesome so let them do the thinking. The wine, the ambiance...well everything is superb. I told David that this was our favorite restaurant in the world and we are world travelers. Thanks again V.Mertz!
18 years after I took my wife here for her birthday when we were dating we celebrated it again there. I have to say they haven’t lost a step in that time, the food and service were amazing. I love that their menu is new daily and the ingredients are as fresh as they get, it truly is a dining experience.
Great food throughout.
The food is always unique and excellent. I really love the tasting menu. One surprise after another. Excellent wine menu and great cocktails.
Perhaps Omaha’s finest restaurant. Always an exceptional experience.
We had an exceptional meal at V Mertz! We will be back.
I thought the menu was a little short-listed in comparison to previous visits to V. Mertz. Food was not spectacular as it has been in the past. and I truly believe that the wait staff has a tremendous impact on your overall experience, even if the food is not amazing, they make the experience amazing. Our wait person was ok, she seemed not confident in answering questions regarding the menu and a little uncoordinated.
Terrific service! Dishes were well-explained and added a nice touch to the entire experience.
We love going back to V Mertz every year for our anniversary. It's very special. We love the ambience and the delicious food. Wine recommendations are always great.
