Dakota our server was positively delightful, attentive and pleasant..the food was so good..our table had a french dip sandwich, a chicken fried steak and potato casserole. We all chose the smaller size options which were perfect.. the food was very tastey.. we enjoyed the meal, and the atmosphere. Would recommend it to anyone. Oh, the desserts were too hard to pass up...we took them to go.

Le Petit Paris French Bakery

Reviewed By Mjsomaha - Omaha

We are great fans of Le Voltaire on Dodge St, but had visited the Papillion location only for lunch. So we joined another couple recently for dinner and had a great experience. The atmosphere is slightly more casual, but still very classy without being pretentious. It's an abbreviated menu but all the best French classics are well represented. The salmon with burre blanc and boeuf bourguignon were outstanding. They also feature Normandy style crêpes and flatbreads. There is a pre/fix option as well that is a great deal! We visit France often, but this café brings a little of France to Omaha.

Ollie and Hobbes

Reviewed By Mjsomaha - Omaha

This restaurant is a welcome addition to,the neighborhood. Very contemporary design makes for great ambiance. The menu is varied and interesting. The lamb chops were great and not usually found on menus in Omaha at a reasonable price. The wedge salad and baked penne were also highlights for our group. We will not hesitate to,return. Oh yes, the staff was very amicable to making adjustments such as substituting green salad for the fries in the pommes frites.

Texas Roadhouse

Legendary Food, Legendary Service

Reviewed By Robyn P

We ate here while in town visiting family. It was a unique place to get delicious food. It is a very busy place, so we called ahead for preferred seating- which worked out great. You can actually pick out your own steak from a display case when arriving. The steaks and other food was all delicious. The atmosphere is country western themed and a lot of fun. The staff were all very friendly. Our server Amy provided very good service. We even had a visit from Carrie the manager since it was our first visit. She brought us a sample of the ribs on the house. We were very pleased with our entire experience

Went out here for a moms lunch out. We enjoyed the ambiance of this place. It wasn't crowded so we were able to talk leisurely. Foods also not disappoint us. Went back later with kids for their pizza. Be bold and try their pizza creations, rather than your regular pizza.

All of the regular fare plus other great options. We have generally had quick service at lunchtime and it is a nice atmosphere. The only less-than-terrific experience has been in order-ahead take-out, which was done when I was in a hurry but the service was slow. Otherwise a good experience.

I have visited this restaurant as my 'to go' Chinese food choice location these last 10 years. Always prepared quickly- excellent ingredients- outstandingly priced. The beef is consistently an excellent grade as are the vegetables. Best egg rolls in the Omaha area. Would like to have more ingredients in the side order of fried rice- but the portions are generous and the food is prepared for each order and so one can enjoy a meal served hot!

Thai Orchids

Reviewed By Mike M

The presentation of the food is unbelievable. I've tried many entrees here, but I've never seen something as beautiful as the pineapple fried rice. You can have whichever meat added, but it's delicious and beautiful. The appetizers are good, the service is personable, and prices are moderate (appropriate for the type of food and type of restaurant).
