Great Find, Classy Atmosphere

The parking lot was full after we found a space. It's s great little neighborhood and a fine old building. It's a romantic environment but very comfortable for small groups. The food was good and had creative flavor combinations. Portions were reasonable. There were several things on the menu I... read more

Just what we were looking for....only better than we had even hoped! We were staying at the Residence Inn Downtown for one night before a convention the last week in July. We arrived at the hotel a bit after 5:00PM and wanted a nice dinner....within walking distance of our hotel. After checking out the options on Trip Adivsor, we settled... More

I had the veal burger with truffle fries and my boyfriend had the Kobe burger with garlic fries and...WOW. Honestly not a big beef or burger person but if I ever get a craving from now on, I am going to Omar's. They definitely have a upscale menu but at a reasonable price. If you are a foodie, you must...

My son took me to Omar's for dinner last night while visiting Hampton. What a place! The perfect trifecta of atmosphere,incredibly delicious food, and wonderful service. The building is quaint and eclectic while the menu offerings are unique and delicious with interesting and beautiful presentations. Top that off with a super attentive (yet not intrusive) wait staff and you get... More

My wife and I went there for dinner last week and came away thoroughly impressed! The new menu and wine list are simply outstanding. I had the mussels which were presented in a creamy broth that just stole the show. My wife had one of the fish dishes which blew her away. I cannot say enough about Omar and his... More

I took a group a teenage girls here for Sunday brunch and everyone loved their food. The waitress was sweet and treated us wonderfully.

Food is excellent, especially their crab cakes. Best I have ever had. Service compliments the food. Introduced us to great martinis too!

Four of us went to dinner after a pleasant day with our new granddaughter. We arrived at 5:30 and were seated. The waitress was not helpful with recommendations. I and another member of our group ordered the New York Strip. It came out lukewarm and with no flavor. We asked if it was a New York Strip and were told... More

My girlfriend and I had prepared a nice evening on Valentine's Day but had both been so busy the previous week that we forgot to make reservations at a restaurant. After searching for restaurants with foreign cuisines, we came upon Omar's Carriage House and they were able to squeeze us in for one of the last available spots of the... More
