We love your place. Any chance of you bringing back your Groupon deal back? Stay awesome. My daughter is always asking when are we going to V. Mertz. She loves the cheese plates.

Menu very interesting. We had goose egg with gnudi which was quite delicious. The octopus appetizer was excellently prepared. The rib eye was fine. Our server, Terence was perfect, attentive, and efficient. Best service possible. Wine list is good.

From the moment we arrived for our reservation, we were treated like royalty. Our waiter took my husband's suit coat and hat for safekeeping and brought us an appetizer. Our meal choices were described and we were told how long it would take to cook....More

This is one of two restaurants in which I ate lunch in the historic old downtown section of Omaha during my recent visit to the city. V. Mertz is well worth going to both in terms of atmosphere and great food.

We dined here for Valentine's Day, but ordered of the regular menu. Everything was excellent from the cheese plate to the macaroons and cappuccino! The menu options are limited, but each is unique and full of varied flavors. Servers are well versed in the menu...More

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

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.
