    I have eaten at this restaurant twice. Once for dinner which was superb and once for brunch, also superb. The servings are just the right size. Not the humongous ridiculous servings at less refined restaurants. I had desert with dinner which was also great and their specialty cocktail, wonderful. The staff was very attentive.

    We did the chef’s tasting menu. It wasn’t the one on the menu. They said they were changing things up and it would be a blind menu. Everything we were served was absolutely wonderful. Our server was excellent as well. This was our first time there, but it definitely won’t be the last.

    great taste and most unusual lack of using garlic in seasoning which I like. Portions are good and service responsive. Odd receptionist who seems afraid to talk to people. Can't say too much for the set up of the tables but was open and quiet.

    I have previously eaten here and had an amazing experience, but this time I was somewhat disappointed. Disappointed. Certainly the service was fine, but the food choices and quality were a disappointment. The shrimp meal was overcooked, and the flavors were simply not what I had experienced previously

    We were able to reserve a table for our party of four on Thursday evening for the following Friday evening. It was my second visit and our friends had never been. We enjoyed sharing appetizers and each had a different main dish. Excellent food. My one concern was that maybe we were a bit louder than other gusts. We had a few looks when we would be laughing with our friends. We had a wonderful meal and great, friendly service.

    We have been to A Foreign Taste before and always loved the wine menu and the delicious meal. This was our first time at one of their Wine and dinner pairings. The six course dinner was outstanding and the South African wine was wonderful. A great evening with the vintners from South Africa explaining their wine. Definitely plan on attending another one

    A Foreign Taste received great reviews on Facebook so I took three friends to try it out. Our waitress was very nice and prompt. As for the food I was disappointed. I had looked at the menu and was wanting to try the Tasting Menu or Roast Duck. They had neither. So, I settled on the seafood pasta. It was to come with a combination of mussels, shrimp and scallops. There were no scallops and no mention that they didn't have any. I hope this can be improved upon as it is in a part of Omaha that sorely needs fine dining. I'll check back in a few months to see if things are better.

    Literally every course we ordered we had to choose something else because they were out. They were not serving the chef’s tasting menu at all, which was the reason we chose this restaurant, and they were also not serving cocktails at all. Wine and second (third) choice foods only. However, they were very nice and apologetic, the vibe was excellent, and the food we did end up getting was good.

    We had a reservation and were seated immediately. It took quite awhile though for anyone to come take our order. After ordering, it was 45 minutes before receiving our (cold) food. In the meantime, there was no checking in to let us know we hadn't been forgotten or apology for the food taking so long. There were only 3 other tables when we ordered and 2 of them appeared to be people who worked there, but may have been off shift. If they are short staffed, I can understand the wait, but the service wasn't friendly and the long awaited food was cold.
