Omaha Restaurants with Valentine’s Day Dinner Specials

Valentine’s Day may seem like an eternity away at the moment. But before you know it, it will be the night of Valentine’s Eve and you’re lying in bed calculating how it will be humanly possible to order a bouquet of flowers and scribble inside a romantic card without your significant other noticing. And then it hits you — what will you do for dinner?! That adds another element of stress entirely.

To avoid this mayhem, we wanted to make this year different for you. We now present to you a list of restaurants in the Omaha area that are offering something special for Valentine’s Day, from set price (or prix fixe) dinners to delectable desserts. Peruse this “menu” of restaurants, pick your favorite, and reserve your table now! And we mean now because these places fill up fast and you don’t want to be the one scrambling to find a table on February 13, only to end up eating chicken nuggets at McDonald’s.

Thankfully, Valentine’s Day is on a Sunday this year, which means more time to spend with your loved one. You might also consider turning it into a Valentine’s Weekend by celebrating either Friday or Saturday night instead to avoid the date-night crowds. In fact, several of the restaurants below are offering their Valentine’s menus or specials all weekend long!



Considered the most vibrant restaurant in Omaha with one of the best happy hours, CRAVE would make the perfect Valentine’s Day destination. Their diverse menu options, from sushi to steak, means you’ll want to return again and again on future dates. But on this special occasion, they’re offering a specific Valentine’s four-course prix fixe dinner guaranteed to wow you.
