This week I took 18 students from my evening Naval War College class to Omar's for an "off site". Boy was this a great decision. Everyone raved about the place, the diverse menu, the food and the server was one of the more professional people I have had the pleasure of meeting. Upstairs is a private room the could comfortably... More

Bottom line up front, it was an enjoyable evening and is highly recommended. I went there with my wife for a date night sans the children. Unique, intimate atmosphere is the restaurant. The waitress was attentive, seemed to check on our table just at the right times, but not too intrusive. The food was very good and filling. The two-top... More

My wife an I thoroughly enjoyed Omar's recent wine dinner. They have always been our go-to restaurant for a cozy, intimate evening but their wine dinners are an opportunity to see old friends and make new ones. We enjoyed a four course meal (plus desert) with accompanying wine from Ankida Ridge Winery. The first course was artichokes hearts stuffed with... More

Omars is a very small, intimate restaurant that can probably seat no more than 20-25 people. As others have said it is located in a carriage house in a very victorian neighborhood.
