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.

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

Wow! What a dining experience. Our server, who has worked there 12 years, was excellent. His advice was spot on, and he was always on hand while not being intrusive. The meal...ahhhhh... one of the best I have ever had in 50+ years of fine...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.

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
