I was here with my daughter. I had eaten here long ago. This place is one that lives up to its current reviews. I ordered the grilled marinated steak tacos. It was not fresh, judging by how some of the meat was cool and other parts warm, it must have been warmed up in a microwave. Regardless, the steak was... More

Came here looking for a new Omaha experience, but would not come back. And that's the true test of a review, isn't it? Had the nacho appetizer as a meal. Waitress said it would be large, it was OK, but not large. Not a lot of cheese or any other toppings. I could have made this at home in five... More

I was visiting in Omaha for the weekend and had to come here. I was craving the large tacos with the fried flour tortillas. They were exactly as I remembered and they were great. I was also glad the taco sauce, which I assume is homemade, hasn't changed in over 20 years. Great stuff. Where it fell slightly short was... More

Honest to goodness Italian fare.... so very good!!!! My only problem was that they were out of San Pelligrino AND cannolis.... I was very confused as to why an Italian Bistro would not have any cannolis... that should be a staple in this time of restaurant.

To be fair, we just stopped in for after dinner drinks. The place wasn't crowded but the service was lacking. Table and chairs didn't sit straight. Staff just seemed lackadasical. Drinks not that good.

We were quite happy to see a Mexican restaurant within easy walking distance of the Century Link Center as Mexican is our favorite type of food. So, it is unfortunate that I have to write a poor review. I didn't think it was possible to mess up a cheese enchilada but even my son who will LOVES cheese didn't like... More

The rice was stale, the tortilla chips were hard. The seating staff was not very welcoming. Wish we had chosen another restaurant.

So the meal we had was just fine. Prompt service and good food. It's what happened afterwards that's really impressive. I needed a copy of my receipt for my work expenses so I called and spoke to Jill who had the receipt in my inbox within the hour. Above and beyond the call of duty IMHO. Thanks Jill.

Visited on 5/29/2016 night around 9:30 PM. It took so long to server food. All of sudden they took OFF beer and plates from our table while we were still eating, turned off all lights (WAS TOTALLY DARK) saying we are closed. HORRIBLE WAITERS AND BAR TENDERS. TOTALLY MANNER LESS. WILL NEVER SUGGEST ANY FAMILY TO GO IN THIS RESTAURANT.... More
