I have eaten in this hotel many times but never been so disappointed. Apparently the lobby is due to be refurbished - well the Liberty Tavern needs major renovation both in decor and service. We were here as a family for lunch. The place was...deserted - appropriately - this place is tatty and the meal matched the decor. The glasses were dirty and the woodwork dirty and windows likewise. The floors are severely in need of cleaning - maybe the plan is to refinish the floors but simply sweeping and steam cleaning could do wonders. Our food arrived in stages - apparently new cooks, some was good and tasty but the coffee lukewarm and several of the items were lacking. Our server Jean tried hard and cut our bill 15% to make up but at present nothing can rescue this sad attempt of a resturant. Maybe the whole hotel is similar? I guess I would stay next door at the Marriott if you plan to visit.More

I want to give this place zero stars. Ambience -- Major construction underway in the lobby area of the hotel makes for a maze to walk through to get to the restaurant. Food -- Went for three-course dinner with salad, fish & chips and bread...pudding. Salad was the best part, fish was average and dessert had a savory, onion taste as their kitchen must've used a spatchula from pot roast to plate my bread pudding. Disgusting! Service -- Booked my table through OpenDoor specifically as the app said you can park in the attached parking structure and have free/validated parking with your meal. After we paid our meal I was denied validation even after showing the app to our waitress and Mia the restaurant manager. Ridiculous -- and no compensation offered either. I had to go to the hotel front desk and deal with another 15 minutes of complaining to them before the Food & Beverage Manager understood the screw up was on them and took care of the parking. This guy was the only competent person I dealt with at the hotel/restaurant. Overall -- This Hilton Diamond Member will never return to Liberty Tavern. Awful experience.More

My wife and I had tix to see Phil Collins last weekend and chose to eat before the show. Knowing it would likely be crazy busy as the arena is directly across the street i opted to make a reservation at Liberty, good thing I...did as thru the whole dinner i watched no less than 50 people walk up and ask to be seated only to be turned away. Anyway, we were seated just prior to our reservation time and our waitress Linda came over very quickly and gave us water and took our drink order, she was good at upselling sizes and asked us if we wanted an appetizer. We ordered the spinach / artichoke cheese dip, our drinks were delivered shortly after and the app came out with pita brad cuts and some lavash type crackers. The dip was lukewarm and at one point i hit a cold spot "clump" in the middle as it clearly wasnt heated all the way thru, flavor was good thou. We ordered our main course, simple grilled cheese and tomato bisque for my wife and i ordered a pepper popper burger. It took a bit for our main dishes to come out and honestly we were looking around at one point when Linda noticed and went to check on our food. The restaurant was very busy at that point due to many events going on along with the concert so seemed a bit hectic. Our meals came out and looked fine, both tasted good and were cooked properly. the burger had a bit of a kick to it so keep that in mind but it was tasty. Over all we left full and satisfied, only hiccup was the luke warm appetizer. Linda was very pleasant and we had no issues at all, it was bit pricey for what we ordered but I do recognize we were in a Hilton so not surprised at all, just notable for others that it is not a diner type of meal.More

Had lunch and several drinks here prior to dinner in the dining room. Everything we had was great. Service a little slow at first because the weren't staffed for the crowd planning to attend the Alan Jackson concert. All worked out in the end.

Ok here’s my story. I upgraded our stay to appetizers and continental breakfast for our stay. Thought we would enjoy the benefits of this cool looking establishment. Wrong. Went to enjoy our appetizers after the concert only to find out there was an hour wait...and our coupon expired at midnight. We were offered to have these to go which we did, but still took 45 minutes. There was only 2 waitresses and one host. We thought there would have been more after a major concert. They could have made so much more money if they were better staffed. We chalked it up to someone or two must have called in or they weren’t prepared. Then for our continental breakfast. Only one person was making omelets and it took another 45 minutes to be served and wait for our omelets. Management really needs to sit back and observe this process and re evaluate how this is managed. Have 2 serving lines-one for omelettes and one for all other options. I saw other reviews and they were glowing. Not me. Maybe a Bloody Mary bar in the mornings after a concert would be nice. I will say that once we sat down to enjoy our food it was rather tasty. The Dj playing music before and after the concert was very good and kept the crowd pumping. Overall please look at your serving options before and after a major concert or other venue. You really have a gold mine if managed differently.More

Good selection of Bar Bites which we took advantage of on a couple of nights as we were there at the Hilton for five nights. Nice wine selection and full bar. The bar shared the kitchen with the restaurant, and it seemed to take more...time than it should.More

I was staying at the Hilton for four days, and there is no place for breakfast other than the Liberty Tavern that I saw anywhere in the area. I really didn't want to take a half-mile trek to Old Town to search for somewhere else...and trek back before working at the convention I was attending, so it was Liberty Tavern breakfast buffet four straight days. If you were hoping to get into the restaurant after 8, expect a wait. The breakfasts were pretty good. On 3 of the days a woman was making omelets to order. She must have been off the other day, but you could order the buffet omelet from the server. On the egg lady's off day, I was there at 8AM. The server asked me what I wanted to drink. I said OJ. She said that they were out.. What kind of place serving breakfast is out of OJ at 8AM? OK, no OJ, How about some water? She comes back with a big glass and a large cruet full of Omaha's best warm water. Seriously. Yes, she went back and got some ice water after I asked. The price of the buffet was cheaper on the weekend than during the week. The buffet price was a bit high, but a la carte prices made the buffet seem reasonable. And if you have a well stocked buffet with lots of choices it's fine.More

This is a decent hotel restaurant. Clean, nicely decorated and comfy. There is a good range of food, and while it is not cheap, it is not of line for a hotel operation. Our server, Karl, was friendly and attentive. But two big issues. One,...it took almost 45 minutes to get our food. Simply unacceptable. Two, i got glutened. I ordered a turkey burger, and since they were out of GF bread and buns, I agreed to have it served on a GF bagel, with nothing but meat and cheese. No sauce or other toppings. I had it served with fries, after being assured there were no seasonings. No matter, i was glutened. Cross contamination somewhere. Won't be back.More

It was May, so we were back in Omaha, and staying at the Omaha Hilton, where I dined at their off-lobby restaurant/bar, Liberty Tavern. This was a very short trip, as opposed to many others, and I only had one lunch at the Tavern, but...we did have wine in the bar area one evening. I arrived just as breakfast ended, and lunch was beginning, and was seated beside the windows, looking out to the al fresco dining area, with a large fireplace, and a view of the Convention Center. Originally, the hostess had offered me a booth, farther into the interior of the restaurant, but my request for a nice bright table was cheerfully accommodated. I was informed that I was just a few minutes early for lunch, but that was not an issue. I had my iPad, and the wine list in front of me. The first thing that I noticed was that the wine list had changed, from last May. Several of “the usual suspects” were no longer on it, and in their place, some interesting wines. As I was solo, I really did not get much beyond the B-T-G list, and had my lineup in just a few moments – about the time that lunch service began. My server took my wine order, as I looked to the menu: Oberon Napa County Cabernet Sauvignon ‘17 – a wine, which was new to me, and an enjoyable Cab Starmont Carneros Chardonnay ‘14 – while not my favorite Chard, it was adequate, especially as I had grown very tired of the Rombauer Chard, served at all of the many United Airline Clubs, we had been in, over the last few months Murrieta’s Well “The Spur” Livermore Valley Red Blend ‘16 – while I knew the producer, and the AVA, this blend was new to me, and very nice For lunch, I ordered: The Carolina Burger w/ Carolina mustard BBQ sauce, pulled pork, sharp cheddar cheese, chef’s coleslaw, Boston lettuce and beefsteak tomato, which came with fries, and I added a side of the BBQ sauce – very good, very large, and the BBQ sauce was a tad sweet for my tastes. However the burger patty was nicely cooked, and the pulled pork did add a different texture, and flavor component. The coleslaw was a bit “wet,” but then with my Carolina BBQ, I really like an almost dry, chipped slaw. Just a difference in taste. Now, the fries were excellent. If they came out of an Or-Ida bag, they were such an exception. They were perfectly done, and there, the BBQ sauce proved a bit better. That sandwich was worth it, if only for the fries, which could easily have been hand-cut. Service was very good, throughout the meal, with just the right amount of attention, but never intrusive. I spent an early afternoon, just nursing my wines, and working on the iPad, and the lunch crowd filled in, and then mostly left. A very relaxing meal, and though the weather outside was now horrible, I still had a nice view. Liberty Tavern, as mentioned, is a restaurant, and a bar, and has varied seating: in the interior, there are booths, and then several tables along a wall of windows. In that area, there are also some tables with banquet seating, as well as chairs. Then, there are several tables out around the bar, which occupies the side of the lobby, plus the al fresco area, on the sidewalk next to 10th Street – the al fresco area which was being pelted by rain, at the moment. Though the Carolina Burger was a bit too much for me, I really appreciated the new wine list, and repeated the Starmont Chardonnay for my wife, while at the bar. Though I had one less than satisfactory visit, a few years back, the last two, including this one, were all very good. Think I just caught them on a bad night, several years ago. We will return, and hopefully next stay at the Hilton Omaha will be longer, and I can fully explore the bottle wine list, and also include dinner.More

This was the night of a concert, and for as busy as it was, they did exceptionally well getting you seated and served. Food was very good, we had a gamut of different foods and everyone was pleased with their selection. Love that they bring...a container of water and keep it filled so you never run out!More

For a Hilton this was disappointing. The lunch menu was relatively small with a few selections in each category (salads, burgers/sandwiches, entrees...). The portions were average in size. From a taste perspective we had the burger and grilled chicken. Both were ok, cooked properly and...presented well. The taste on the burger was bland, minimal seasoning. The biggest concern was the service, we sat in the bar area and the bartender and servers didn't seem to be working together well. Had to go to the bar to get our bill and pay as no one returned after our food and drinks were delivered. A family sat down next to us and sat there for 10 minutes before anyone stopped by. The staff seemed to be working hard but uninterested in customer service. I would not eat here again just based on the service.More
