We always love coming to V Mertz. It’s our favorite date night place—the service is impeccable, the food is amazing, and don’t skip dessert!

Celebrated the holidays with friends, and this was a perfect place for it. Cozy, not noisy. Terrific staff. Great drinks and wine list. Food is definitely not run of the mill. Good options for gluten free, too.

My wife and I adore V Mertz. The food is spectacular. We generally get first plates and shared plates and desserts, which is enough to satisfy us. This is not a place where you can skip dessert—every single one we’ve ordered has been divine. This...More

V. Mertz is a fine dining restaurant, tucked inside a courtyard in the Old Market section of Omaha. I had the Red Snapper, it was flavorful and delicious.

We recently moved to Omaha, and were looking for a nice high quality restaurant. We found it! We liked the ambiance, the service, the food and the wine selection. Our meal was on par with many high end restaurants we have dined in while living...More

I was surprised a restaurant of this caliber was not higher up on the list. It is also not an easy find. No one at the hotel, or our driver even heard of it. And it's been around for dozens of years! Located downstairs in...More

Hard to find, in the lower level and to the back of the building, but worth getting to. We shared three courses. The charcuterie was generous portions of several cured meets, with a nice mustard and sweet mayo on the side. Also included a very...More

Did not eat here. Stopped for a beer and sat in their sidewalk area. Server was indifferent, slow, ho-hum, too cool to work for a living, apparently. Three of the beers we ordered they were out of. I'll give them another chance sometime, but this...More

Went here on our last day of a business trip for something different. They have an amazing wait staff, great variety (with full 5 star flavor and presentation), a professional or romantic atmosphere, and a nice wine selection. I highly recommend it to anyone looking...More

It's nice for a special occasion and check Groupon too. We paid $60 for $100 worth of food and our bill was about $130 total. So we paid about $100 or just under. That was drinks, dessert and an appetizer, if you don't... More

They do not have a restrictive dress code; you are apt to see a wide variety of attires. Jeans are fine as long as you feel fine wearing them.
