The Grey Plume Ratings and Reviews

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. 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.

If you are in search of an extraordinary dining experience absent the pretentiousness of many a fine dining establishment, you simply MUST make your way to The Grey Plume. From the contemporary meets old world finishes to the warm and welcoming staff, you will feel right at home here. These talented folks know how to make your culinary experience a wonderful adventure. From dish to dish and bite to bite, our group enjoyed well-conceived and simply delightful creations. Just hitting some of the highlights… The Natalie in Gray soft and creamy goat cheese served with peach, shallot, and zucchini bread. Outstanding. The beef cheek with a robust and rich melt-in-your-mouth flavor. Superb. Perfectly prepared tilefish with shiitake, leek and gnocchi. Nailed it. I could go on and on, but my words fall well short of the actual experience. Suffice it to say that every bit was outrageously delicious.
Charcuterie board was excellent. Server ...
Charcuterie board was excellent. Server was highly knowledgeable and approachable. With ingredients sourced within 100 miles of the restaurant, the selection was limited. Coming off a trip to Park City, UT (where phenomenal restaurants are everywhere) we were less than impressed with the actual food preparation. There was a sense that the chef was "trying too hard." The flavors were slightly off, too much going on, not letting the preparation accentuate the natural qualities of the ingredients.
Excellent service and food. We had the c ...
Excellent service and food. We had the charcuterie plate to start, and the rabbit and pork dinners as main courses. Wine was a excellent 2010 Barolo. Every part of the experience was superior-food was interesting and well-prepared, and of outstanding quality. The rabbit was particularly good. Dessert was finely prepared and executed as well. Highly recommended.
A gripe about the charges: the only thing that marred my experience was how the 20% service charge was applied. If you buy a $100 bottle of wine versus a $30 bottle, you are charged an additional $14 for the more expensive bottle, even though you are not provided any additional service. Moreover, they tack on the 20% after the tax is computed. I typically tip 20% anyway, but on the services provided. The tax and the wine service should be treated differently.

The menu can seem a bit daunting if, like my wife and I, you're not used to Grey Plume's level of dining. But that is no issue at all because the wait staff is always super friendly and patient with any request or questions. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming.
My wife and I ate here the night of our Wedding day and on our first anniversary. It has easily become our favorite restaurant. Both times we shared the Duck Fat Fries for an appetizer and the Duck Fat Fried donut for desert which are our favorite items in their respective menu categories. For the entree options, my wife and I always choose something different. The entrees are great and each time I've chosen something I think it's the best thing I've ever had.

This is one of our favorite places to eat in Omaha. We find the service to be very good and not at all obtrusive. The wine list is fairly large and very well thought out. The cocktail specials were unique, and very tasty. The food tends to be locally sourced, and well priced for the quality of the preparations.

It was our 25th Wedding Anniversary. The service was good. It was a very hot day so sitting at the Chef's table in the window was a little warm which we realized even more when we walked through the very cool dining room to get to the bathrooms. Also, the table is oddly structured with the way the table legs are spaced which the server mentioned when we were seated. We liked the food presentation and how we did not feel rushed through the courses which was nice. The food was fine. Our server had us excited to try a bottle of wine that she recommended and told us was amazing therefore, a little disappointing for us and her that they couldn't find the wine. We did order a different bottle which was good. They also add a 20% "hospitality" charge with a very long explanation about tipping the kitchen staff. Seemed like a big problem for them. For us, it would have been more appropriate to bring to our attention at the beginning of the meal. It seemed awkward for the server . We already expected to leave gratuity so just seemed much ado about nothing. Strang way to end a meal.Overall, everything was fine.

Great atmosphere, excellent service, wonderful food made from ingredients procured within a 100 mile radius. Dining at Grey Plume is not cheap but well worth the money. Will return to the Grey Plume on future visits to the Omaha area.
