Fine dining, but made kid-friendly for us. The staff make it unpretentious but it seemed the other guests wanted it to be a bit hoity toity. My kids were quieter than some of the other guests. The music upon entry was great, Willie Nelson, and then a few other modern singers mixed in, very eclectic but upbeat. The staff is... More

I travel a lot and dine out when I do. This was my first stop in Omaha, and I was blown away. From the amuse bouche to the complimentary cookies handed to me on my way out the door, everything here was top notch, as was the service. My steelhead trout was beautifully served, very generous portion, and perfectly prepared.... More

This is by far the best meal in Omaha. As a native born Omahan who has eaten at dozens and dozens of restaurants here I can tell you the food is amazing. If the high prices are too much for your pocketbook, try the bar/happy hour menu. The seating is limited to the bar (maybe 10 stools?), but you'll still... More

I went here on a trip with my teenager. She's quite the foodie, so I knew she would appreciate it. We made a reservation and ended up being almost 20 minutes late, but were still seated immediately. As everyone will tell you the duck fat fries are amazing, and worth every calorie. The creaminess of the runny egg yolk over... More

This restaurant exceeded the very high expectations I had after reading an article that named it the best restaurant in Nebraska. The service was exemplary. Everyone we interacted with was not only professional, courteous, and friendly they were very knowledgeable about everything on the menu. You can tell this is a restaurant that takes great pride in their food and... More

We chose the Grey Plume for our recent anniversary dinner. Plenty of nice options in Omaha anymore, so it was hard to choose....... We had never been there so we plunged in! In a word "Excellent"! Decor is understated, but nice modern feel. Service was timely and appropriate. We had the chef's pork tasting menu and it was quite honestly... More

My wife and I ate here recently and couldn't have been more impressed. From the most accommodating hostess to the wait staff, service was impeccable. The decor/ vibe was casual elegance and although we felt a bit underdressed, we were made to feel welcome as there was no air of snobbery. The drinks were wonderful and were unique. The food... More

We relied on Trip Advisor reviews on this spot, as did other fans of our school here for the College World Series. We had a glass of wine at the small bar while we waited on our table. Had the "duck fried potatoes" that were outstanding. Then we both ordered the bone-in whole steelhead trout we were told was raised... More

Went with friends for the special 'cocktail' dinner. WOW! Except for the 'amuse buche' - each of the 5 courses was served with a different cocktail. Two of the cocktails drunk alone were just 'so-so', but combined with the food - what a wonderful taste experience! Extremely innovative and truly delicious at a very reasonable price. The servings were beautifully... More

Not your run of the mill menu. Had a pork dish with about 6 different pieces if pork. Favors exploded in your mouth- truly a definition of delicious. The fish dish was excellent as well. Beautiful presentation of the dinner. Service was excellent.
