What an experience! The staff does an amazing job of making a meal special and the flavors were incredible! My favorite thing about the dinner was our waiter's knowledge of the food and drink. He told us where our food came from that week, gave us history lessons about the wine and was the most professional and polite server I've... More

We just love V Mertz and try to go at least once a year. The service is impeccable and the food is out of this world. Can literally cut their steak w a fork. Amazing wine and alcohol list. A real treat!

We went to V. Mertz prior to a concert with the Omaha Symphony. It was a decent date night, but the prices of V. Mertz are way inflated for what you actually get. Sure, the wine list is massive, and prices for a glass of wine are pretty standard with other restaurants, but that's where the pricing comparison stops. We... More

We like to visit V. Mertz for special occasions: birthday and anniversaries. The food is always delicious and we especially enjoy the little extras that the chef sends out. We have a very favorite waiter that we will not name because he is "Ours" and ours alone. The atmosphere is out of this world. It transports us out of Omaha... More

Dined here on November 19, 2016 and was thoroughly blown away. First of all, our server (David) was spot on! Our drinks were always full, he was incredibly knowledgeable about the dishes and wines to pair with them, and he made the whole experience just delightful! Our food took a while to arrive, but boy was it worth the wait.... More

Our server was great. Gave us time between items we ordered. Took care of drinks when close to empty, great ambiance, cool location. I wore a dress and my husband wore a button up shirt and dark jeans and there were people dressed more casual. overall good, but would recommend for a special occasion as it is expensive. check groupon...
