This restaurant could certainly hold its own in Chicago or any large city. The portions seemed large but were delicious. Service was excellent. I think my food was comparable to that of many one star Michelin restaurants in the big cities. The only thing that might be lacking is a more developed wine list - but I think that is... More

Went to this restaurant for a special wedding anniversary dinner, but it was not so special. We ordered the ribeye dinner for two. Unfortunately it was half fat and grizzle. We commented on it and were told it was the way the meat came. Certainly not what we expected from a high end restaurant. Presentation was nice.

This restaurant is by far the best in Omaha. The food was excellent and prepared with perfection. Starting with the charceuterie which was outstanding, to a wonderully prepared cold zucchuni soup that startled my taste buds. Then onto the trout which was succulent. Ending the evening with chocolates that were a perfect cap to a perfect meal. Our service was... More

The food at The Grey Plume is elegant and tasty, as only a professionally trained chef can produce. The restaurant itself has been constructed with ecology in mind. The food is mainly locally grown. This is a lovely little restaurant for a very special dinner as it is a bit pricy for Omaha.

The charceuterie is the best I have had anywhere....I don't bother to order it anywhere else (don't be afraid, add the duck liver pate... Yummy!). I had a mushroom dish that was amazing and the drinks are unique and memorable. Love the Grey Plume!

What an unexpected surprise! The food and atmosphere were absolutely fabulous! The menu was unique and the flavors delicious. We had the duck fat fries as an appetizer, rainbow trout for main course, and crème brule dessert and each was delicious! The wine selections were also great. Looking forward to going back again -- this place was wonderful!

This is a great place to visit for special events, like anniversaries or birthdays. Our last visit was Valentine's Day and it was excellent as always.

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 be described or explained. Very creative combinations for daring... More
