The Grey Plume Ratings and Reviews

As you have sent this review that our reservation was indeed at 6:00pm. When we arrived we were told our reservation was not until 7:30pm. One person of our party was turned away when she arrived at 6pm and was told that the reservation was at 7:30pm. We were seated shortly after that, however we had to call our person to come back that our reservation was at 6pm and not 7:30pm.
other than this everything was fine.

The service was very good and staff totally attentive. The chef went out of his/her way to accommodate our vegan guests even with a parting vegan gift. The food and presentations were all excellent though proportions were rather small with the exception of the trout that was large and served whole.

Everything was great at the Grey Plume!!! From the food to the wine and ambiance!! We started with the charcuterie board which had a variety of very different meats, cheeses and pâtés. My husband and I split the bison tomahawk which was a special for the evening and it was so good!! It was the perfect amount for 2 people! Members of our group had the whole cooked trout and also the salmon. Everyone was impressed! Tip is added into final bill which was nice! We definitely plan to return!

My first stay at the GP was for my 15th anniversary. Having such a great experience, I thought it would be ideal to introduce my teenagers to a top quality restaurant. As I made plans to share a menu, I observed the one day only pre-Thanksgiving all Asian meal and was immediately intrigued. I could not have been much happier. The cocktail options were great. Kids had your amazing home made cola; my wife had the non cab red and I had your parsnip infused vodka cocktail (okay, we each had two, but we took the hotel shuttle). Abby and mom had the kimchi rice; Nathan had the pork steam bun and I had the pickled trout. We all shared and I thought the trout was best but the pork was outrageous as well. Abby mooched off us for dinner. Nathan and mom had the salmon; I had the pork gyoza. We all had desert; Nathan and Abby the lemongrass sorbet; we shared the rice balls and curd. Our reservations were timely and we had top notch service who gave good insight and feedback and must have visited the table at least 6-8 times. Your french press coffee should be mandatory. I did find your tip policy intriguing and tipped substantially on top of it. I am guessing philosophically we agree that employees should be able to rely on good tips for good service and unfortunately there are some bad customers out there who muck it up. In short, I would do this again and again if I were a local; but in a way, that is what makes our visits to Omaha and the GP so special.

Food was okay....
Ordered another bottle of wine to find out we had the last bottle. Not a big deal but selection of second bottle came off as a rushed selection at best.
Been to Grey Plume a dozen plus times. Seems heading towards being less on top of their game.
The newer 20% service fee to provide for kitchen staff is a good thought. Better executed if slice of gratuity as decided by guests created the pool rather than assume food quality and timely kitchen performance and table service.
I generally provided for greater than 20% . This visit would not have. Wine along was $560.00 so 20% on top would have had to be a flawless execution.
My ask...get back to the higher levels.

Awesome experience and not only diverse and tasty food but beautiful presentation with really nice service, without being overly attentive. There were six of us and we thoroughly enjoyed the dinner and casual ambiance of the front Chef's table. The tasting spoons sounded like strange combinations, but were wonderfully flavorful, as was the exotic dessert plate. High recommendation from us for a Birthday, as our BDay party at Grey Plume was the best!! Huge THANK YOU to our service team Miles, Farrell, Erin & Amanda

Excellent meals with 1 exception.My wife's beef dinner was about 6 good bites & the remainder grizzly & non-eatable.The service was superb. The starters were interesting & delicious.We had a most enjoyable dining experience. Thanks for asking.

The Grey Plume did not disappoint. After much deliberation, given all of the tantalizing choices, I ordered the trout. When I took my first bite and a word come to mind- refreshing. When have you ever thought of fish and refreshing in the same instance? It seemed to be lightly infused with citrus and it was flaky and surprisingly delightful. The whole meal was wonderful and it was exactly what we expected having had a great experience here in the past.

I had tried fine dining before but I wanted to treat my sister for an early birthday gift. This was our first time there. We loved all the uniquely prepared food that we chose. The only thing is that I would of liked the pork tasting plate to be explained a little better because I did not expect what I received and sent it back. It was not to my liking-(too salty). Other than that everything was enjoyed very well. Our waitress did a wonderful job and I like it when the chef came out to explain the dish.

The rating related to value was solely based on an automatic 20% "hospitality charge" (GP's language for tip) added to the bill for a party of 3. Service was good but I like to determine the tip based on my experience.

This was our second time at the Grey Plume. Serena was our server. She was excellent in every way: pleasant, attentive, funny, professional. The food was excellent and if I may, the Duck Fat Fries are to die for. We will be returning!!

From the minute you walk in the door to the time you leave the staff are attentive ensuring that you have an excellent dining experience. We had a trout and a pork sampling entree which were done to perfection. We highly recommend.

The trout dinner and what it was served with was outstanding.
The gimmick of a donut fried in duck fat spoiled the overall meal [we used as a dessert]. The taste spoiled the delicious entre and stayed long into the evening,
Our wine choise was excellent. The waitress was very well informed and pleasant.

We tried to get a reservation a few months ago but the resturant was closed for a private dinner the night we were in town. Made it this past week, and it was absolutely one of the best dining expierences I have had! Amazing food...the pork tasting dish was unbelievably delicious!! We come to town about every other month, but The Grey Plume will now be a regular favorite of ours.

We're from Chicago and read and heard wonderful reviews about The Grey Plume. We were celebrating our anniversary with our daughter (17) and the chef created a tasting menu for us on the spot - we had early reservations at 6:00. Our first course of cheese and jams was one of the best courses we have ever experienced. The entire dinner was creative, beautifully presented and delicious - ending with a spectacular foie gras ice cream dessert. Service was friendly, efficient and professional. They even had the staff sign an anniversary card for us and gave us shortbread cookies on the way out. Nice touches. Loved our entire evening and the Cubs won that evening so even better!

I love this place!I am never disappointed when I go there. It's a bit on the pricey side but worth very penny if you appreciate well created meals made with farm fresh ingredients. I recommend The Grey Plume to everyone I know.

Great place for local farm to table. The food was excellent and looked as good as it tasted. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and everything couldn't have been better. We tried the pork sampler and a steak, both were amazing. Wish the dessert menu had a few more options.

First time and last time. Food was okay. Two people had the trout - lots of bones, small and overcooked. I had the chicken - again average plus it had chicken hearts -with no warning. The duck fat fries were pretty good and the charcuterie was nice. Pricey and average. Big let down except for the drinks were terrific. My husband had a manhattan and I had a bourbon drink with grapefruit, sea salt - one of their special drinks.
Great atmosphere and outstanding service ...
Great atmosphere and outstanding service. Our meal took a little longer than the kitchen found acceptable so complimentary beverages and dessert were sent out. I can't say enough good things about the duck fat doughnut it may be one of the best things I've ever had.

The Grey Plume was outstanding as always. I have never had a disappointing meal here. The servers are always friendly and attentive, the food is amazing and even though it isn't cheap it never feels like anything less than a good value.

The Grey Plume is one of Omaha's gems! The food and service is the best in town! The chef and staff take the eating experience to the highest level of pleasure as every bite is extraordinary! And the cookies provided as you leave help the exceptional experience to linger with you a bit longer - exceptional place!

The service was really great. LimiTed menu for restaurant week which we knew. Food choices were interesting.......duck fat fries were fabulous! Everything else was just okay. Too expensive for even restaurant week. We would probably never go back given the price, quantity and choices. Again, service was excellent.

Great food! We ate from the Restaurant Week menu. We were with another couple and shared many bites. Everything was cooked perfectly and tasted so good. Great layering of flavors in the pork, collar, and trout (my favorite)! The wine pairings were perfect! Somm was great as was our server, Serena. Pacing was great, and all staff was so knowledgeable about every dish. Can't wait to return!

Way over rated for a Beard rated restaraunt.
Dined with 3 others. All four agreed that the meals were soso. I had the trout...ok, the vegetables under the trout were superb.... But again overrated and over priced. Place was fairly empty for a Saturday night. They also made us wait at the bar to order drinks when our table was clearly ready upon our arrival.
