Consistently good food

We enjoy our meals here time after time. Great wine list and intimate spaces. Week nights are especially good because it's easy to get a table and it's usually very quite. It is a bit pricy for Omaha but inexpensive by most city standards.

It's hard to find, but for a good reason. You don't want this place to be too crowded. Very creative menu. I tried the Sword Fish. It was more than satisfying without weighing you down. Delicious!

V.Mertz provide an excellent experience. The food was very creative and included appetizers of Asparagus soup which had hints of several other things including some lemony gel, foie gras with some chocolate, pasta and another one which I don't remember. Everything was excellent other than the past which was hard (not al-Dante but rather HARD as in uncook), in fact... More

Well, you will just have to try this one. It reminded me of a quaint place in Italy but definitelywith an American flair. We were seated at 8:30pm and the place was packed which accounted for a rather long wait for our drink order to be taken (20 minutes) but don't let this discourage anyone. The service after this initial... More
