The Grey Plume Ratings and Reviews
Did the chef's tasting menu (8course) with wine pairing and a couple drinks.
Our wait staff was nice but seemed lack in-depth knowledge of the food and especially of the wine.
For a dining experience that was closer to $600, including tip, we expect more of an "experience " as we have had in other cities for comparable price.
The food itself was very good and well plated. Great spring flavors though a little heavy on use of raspberries in first several courses (repetitive).
Did not like the last dessert course: the fried portion tasted like it was cooked in the same oil as French fries or something.
We have dined at the Grey Plume on several special occasions and never have been disappointed with our meal, our service, our experience! Each time we've tried something different on the menu and again never disappointed! I highly recommend this for anyone looking for a unique dining experience.
For my wife and I, we decided it's not the place for us. Some things were good, some were not. Some of the offerings seemed forced or the combination of ingredients seemed strange just for the sake of being strange and didn't really come together like I feel they should have for the price we paid. The restaurant is beautiful and everyone we encountered was wonderful.
Outstanding service with delicious food in a beautiful setting.
The server was knowledgeable about the menu and he was very accommodating.
The food was tasty and the menu was unique.
We all appreciated the atmosphere too.
A very lovely evening.
My husband and I have been to several Michelin rated restaurants, so it isn't as if we are cheap. We also have worked/currently work in the food industry so we tend to be rather forgiving of service mistakes. We however, for the first time thought about leaving a restaurant after being greeted by our server and being told we could not order an appetizer until we place our full order. We ordered our appetizer and when we weren't finished with the plate, silverware still in hand, our waitress took the appetizer and waited for me to set down my silverware so she could bus it. We also for the first time sent back food because of the portion size, their $52 bison "ribeye" was two very small cuts, looking to be at most 8 ounces of meat total. Despite the fact we were very unsatisfied overall with our service the choice was not left to us how much to tip, there is an automatic 20% gratuity on all bills. Our overall experience left us feeling as though The Grey Plume thinks quite too highly of their food as well as their service.
My son works there, so I may be a bit biased, but we had a wonderful experience for our mother's day brunch. The atmosphere was great, our waiter was attentive and kind without being annoying, the food was delicious. I made reservations online and when I called to see if I could add 3 more people, there was no hassle. Thank you so much for making this a very memorable day for all of us, but especially the 4 moms that were celebrating.
This is the third time we have been to Grey Plume for Mother's Day brunch and it is better every year. It is a little pricey but worth it. This a three-course prix fixe menu was offered with 2-3 options per course. All the dishes we had were excellent, service was just right and Grey Plume is a very enjoyable setting. Recommended.
Visited for my wife's birthday, and decided to allow the chef to prepare us each a five-course meal. Though adventurous, we'd never tried anything like that, but the outcome exceeded even our highest expectations.
While it's probably not a fair comparison, I may have had the best meal of my life that evening at Grey Plume. Each and every course was phenomenal. My wife and I could hardly express to each other how much we enjoyed every single bite.
The cocktails and wine were phenomenal, the service was outstanding (we even wound up conversing for a long while with our server at the end of the night), and in short, this was everything we could have hoped for a special occasion to be.
We were celebrating a birthday as a party of 4. The variety of the menu and the presentation of the food and wine were exceptional. Our server Ally was awesome and took the time to explain the menu, options, wines, etc. It was a very good experience.
My husband and I love the Grey Plume and our most recent anniversary dinner did not disappoint. We had a lovely note from the staff wishing us a happy anniversary. The meal starts with an amazing amuse touch. Our first course was their amazing beef tartare (that is not on the menu but we made a special request because it was so amazing the last time we had a special dinner).
Our entrees were also terrific but the surprise of the evening was the desserts, especially the cedar ice cream.
The food is awesome and the staff is terrific!
The restaurant is nice and the service good. Very nice red blend wine by the glass. Food was good but not extraordinary. I think they are trying to overachieve and somewhat missing the mark. All in all, my second visit and I'd go back.
We VERY much enjoyed the charcuterie board and the gnudi entree, but the pork sampler entree lacked dimension. The pork belly was tough and overly salty, the one piece of non-cured non-sausage pork on the plate was cooked nearly well done, rather than the medium rare I requested, and I kept looking for a brightness on the plate to cleanse my palate between bites of fatty, salty sausage.
Drinks were very nice. Service was good. Overall, a little disappointed for our first (long anticipated) visit. Felt like the whole place wasn't firing on all cylinders.
The waitress was informative when questioned. The food and service demonstrated a genuine desire that the guest enjoy the food, atmosphere, and the service and that it was a pleasure to serve. I would be delighted to return.
This has to be in the top 10 of my all time most fabulous meals. Zac, our server was beyond perfect. The food, from the hot, crusty rolls that bloomed like pillows, the amuse-bouche, the panzanella with house made pumpernickel and grilled baby endive, the Celeriac soup with blood orange segments, the trout with head and tail served on a two-foot ceramic plate to the amazing chicken entree, which I cannot do justice to except to say it was served wrapped in a crispy skin with kumquats and Brussels sprouts - was all spectacular!
If I had not been suffering from jet-lag I would have gone for dessert then the cheese selection. Truly a fine evening with memorable service and a gustatory experience raised to a new level in the universe.
Fantastic meal at a very nice restaurant while visiting Omaha. The variety of the menu was good and my choices were absolutely fantastic. I was able to pair my meal with a glass of bubbly and then a good half bottle of wine. The waiter was really personable and made my total experience truly memorable.
