About the restaurant
V. Mertz offers our guests a progressive, contemporary American menu with an emphasis on seasonal and local ingredients. We offer an award-winning wine list of over 400 selections. The restaurant is located in Omaha’s historic and picturesque Old Market Passageway, within walking distance from the CHI Convention Center, The Holland Performing Arts Center, the Orpheum, and all major downtown hotels.

V. Mertz is locally-owned, and we pride ourselves in offering artisan products and cheeses, organically-grown local produce and Wagyu beef, and sustainably-farmed and line-caught seafood. We believe that dining should be an event, and to this end Chef Jonathan Miller has created a harmony of food and wine, culminating in our extravagant Tasting Menu.

Perfect for business or pleasure, V. Mertz is the premier fine-dining restaurant in Omaha.

What a culinary journey! Traveling for work and received a recommendation. From the small plates, to the scallops, to the dessert, this was an experience! The cab was a great pairing with everything. Our waitress was so helpful in the experience, and it provided a much needed escape to a difficult day.

About the restaurant
Blue Sushi Sake Grill unites creative ingredients with energetic vibes, premium cold sake with happy moments to give you a fresh and fun new way to experience sushi. Our sushi and grill menus allow you to explore your sushi favorites in new and unexpected ways. We like to say that sushi is for sharing, and our menu encourages it. Order a spread of all your maki, nigiri and sashimi favs from the sushi bar, and throw in a few orders of starters from the grill. We'll stagger your plates so you can savor it all bite-by-bite, and maximize the sushi experience you've been craving all week. If you're not sure where to start, tour the menu during Happy Hour, where all our guest favorites — from our sushi, grill and drink menus — are available at an amazing value.

About the restaurant
For any requests or accommodations for dinner parties of 7 or more guests, please contact the restaurant by phone.

This is a restaurant where steak is the star–where great steak is the rule, not the exception. Mahogany’s steaks are the finest custom-aged U.S. Prime Midwestern Beef, known for its excellence in marbling, texture and flavor. We broil it exactly the way you like it at 900 degrees to lock in the corn-fed flavor. We serve it sizzling on a heated plate so that it stays hot throughout your meal. Selections from the ocean include Australian Rock lobster and the freshest fish daily based on availability. Service will be outstanding, but provided in a casual, less intimidating fine-dining atmosphere.

Over the top good. Excellent service. Lovely wine. Twisted salad is a must. The two entrees we had were exceptional and the sides served with complimented the entree. If you want a pork chop this is the place to get it. We will be back.
