    Overall a wonderful experience. We have been many times and always enjoyed every aspect of our evening. Tonight, the food was bland overall. The arancini is always one of our favorites and both of us thought it was bland. The risotto was bland as well and was probably the main ingredient in the arancini. The Brussel sprouts were good as always and the salmon was good, but a little underseasoned.

    We are regulars of the Odyssey but our experience last night was less than ideal. I had to send my steak back twice (ordered it medium, it came out with a purple center that was cold). Our cookie skillet was cold, dry and crumbly — the ice cream didn’t melt and the pan wasn’t hot. On several occasions, we had to ask for our waitress to return to our table because she seemed to run off and not return. All in all, we were super disappointed. We normally have a 10/10 experience so it made last night even more out of character. Very disappointing, especially when spending those prices on a meal — when it’s delicious, it’s totally worth it. But when you’re served cold food and aren’t tended to for refills, etc… It will be awhile before we return.

    It is always a pleasure to dine at Odyssey. We threw a bit of a wrench into the picture by having a third person with us-- but Sarah graciously took care of rearranging our table. Morgan was a great server. Two of our party had the scallop special-- which they really enjoyed. All good and drink was great-- as we have come to expect. Thank you everyone at Odyssey.

    By far one of the best dining experiences I’ve ever had, period. A creative menu perfectly prepared, superb service and a most attractive venue. Worth a trip, not just a detour. Rated among the very best restaurants in the state, and deservedly so.

    Very impressive place. For central Nebraska it is as sophisticated and innovative and high quality as it gets. I would put this place up against Omaha ‘s and KC’s best. Food was outstanding. Service was very friendly and laid back. Will definitely be back the next time I am back in central Nebraska.

    Dined here for our daughter’s 17th birthday. The bruschetta boards never disappoint and steaks were done perfectly. Enjoyed the unique drink and mocktail options and of course the fabulous cheesecake and crème brulee for dessert. The very best part of dining at Odyssey is the service. The staff is friendly, fun and well trained.

    My wife and I have always enjoyed Odyssey. Our first time was in 2016 and we've been in love since. The atmosphere, service and entrees is exceptional and we are grateful that there is a restaurant named Odyssey in Hastings, NE. We live in Grand island, NE and there is nothing in GI comparable to Odyssey. We love it and definitely will be back. Thank you!! ;-)

    We had a wonderful time celebrating our 10th anniversary at Odyssey! We were greeted with personalized service from our table settings to our wait staff. The "Happy Anniversary" sign was a nice touch! Our server, Tori, was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. The only thing I would change is to have a broader vegetarian menu and more choices on the regular menu, from salads to entrees. The Ceasar salad dressing was not vegetarian and ranch dressing was not offered. That is the only change I would make. Great place to celebrate!!

    The food was amazing, as always! We were a bit disappointed in the service. We had to ask repeatedly for water refills, drinks, to order, etc. She didn’t know the details of the menu much at all, whereas the other servers we’ve had there are SO trained on all of the details! We love Odyssey and will always return, but this was an outlier experience with a new waitress that didn’t leave us overly satisfied.
