Unique and different

The atmosphere and service in this restaurant was excellent, top notch. Its emphasis on sustainability, however, was a bit over the top. Since it's winter, there are no salads on the menu and very few vegetables, at least anything of substance or recognizable. Every morsel of what we ate had to... read more

We used the event space across the street to host a business dinner for 15 or so and I have to say it was one of the easiest client dinners to arrange as well as one of the best. The creative menu and service was top notch and I will certainly plan to go back again the next time I... More

Atmosphere, food and service are all outstanding. Make sure to try whatever the current soup is and a glass of the Negrette because you cannot get it many other places. Will always be back, you guys a re great!

The quality of the food at the Grey Plume is the best in town still. This is my fifth time eating there. I am always impressed by its relaxed, not to stuffy environment. Not sure how they pull off being the best without having to wear formal dress. I enjoy that. There staff is more hands off too, which I... More

Upon visiting Omaha for a flight out the next morning my wife and I had the pleasure to eat at the Grey Plume. Located in Midtown it's an upscale restaurant with palatable delights not found elsewhere. If you're looking for something small and quaint with attention to detail give this gem a try...extras to surprise, great service, every dish differently... More

Having been to Tru a number of years ago, we were excited to try The Grey Plume since chef Clayton Chapman trained there in a highly respected position, and we were not disappointed. Arriving at Happy Hour without reservations, we were politely greeted and promptly seated at the bar and began a great night of conversation with the knowledgeable bartender.... More

Went to the Grey Plume for our anniversary dinner. What a great experience. The lamb and the duck were out of this world yummy. The duck fat fries and pork belly were the perfect beginnings. The atmosphere is small and intimate and the service was spectacular. This place is not inexpensive but well worth the money spent. Most of the... More

Just finished a five star night at The Grey Plume...pumpkin panna codda amuse bouche, duck fries with poached egg and best of all a trio of pork (loin, belly and sausage) on a bed of kale that could not have been better; smoky, cooked perfectly, just the best ever, ever. And next to me a whole roasted trout was devoured... More

We were so pleased with our dinner at the Grey Plume! We were seated immediately, even though we were 10 minutes early for our reservation. Restaurant was open and comfortable and I was very happy we could have a decent conversation without yelling. I had a really nice gin cocktail to start. We loved the amuse bouche (chevre and micro...
