Maybe I had too high of expectation? The good: the amuse bouche and the charcuterie board were excellent. The wine list is not strong enough for the caliber of food they are (allegedly) serving. The $28 meatless pasta plate that came with no more than 9 rigatoni noodles (we counted) was disappointing and the entire main course uninspiring and bland.... More

Good Afternoon Miss Gina, I hope this email finds you well. I wanted to reach out to apologize for the unpleasant experience you had with us recently. It is certainly our goal for guests to leave the restaurant inspired and to feel great about their meal. While I will not make concessions for our missteps, I simply want to offer... More

We learned that dining at the Grey Plume is an event to be experienced when you have the time to do so. Our dining experience lasted three hours and we were educated thoroughly on all of the offerings on the menu that we inquired about. Our entrees arrived at the table nearly an hour after ordering, and luckily, we were... More

Duck fat fries, pasta, wahoo (fish) and donut dessert were... More

At an auction we bid on and won a gift certificate to this classy restaurant. We dined there on my husband's birthday, and it was truly a special place to celebrate. The menu is special, designed around locally grown food, tastefully prepared. The server was knowledgeable and attentive. The presentation elegant. Of course, the price was also "elegant."

We found "The Grey Plume" on Yelp, so we had no idea what to expect. But, we were very pleased. The menu changes constantly with the goal of delivering locally produced or connected dishes. They served an Irish Whiskey, "Writers Tear", Manhattan that was wonderful! I can't figure out what the local connection to Omaha is, but it was delicious!... More

We met some really great and friendly people here during happy hour. The menu is NOT budget friendly during any other time since this appears to be a more upscale place and the prices reflect it. The bartender was engaging and made some really good suggestions. They have a lot of "duck themed" dishes, including the french fries, which I... More

We were just visiting Omaha as a weekend trip and this restaurant was recommended to us as a place we must try. We did not have reservations for Saturday night, but it was not busy--plenty of empty tables. We were seated after about a 5 minute wait. Food: We started with the Duck fat fries and it was very good.... More

Both entrees were exceptional as usual. Their wine list is underrated for the food. Please upgrade . Bread disappointing . Just pass on it .

We ate here about 6 times in the 3 years we lived in Omaha and loved it every time. The food is delicious and of the highest quality. The staff is friendly and knowledgable. The atmosphere is relaxing but festive. I highly recommend this restaurant! Worth the money!

We were traveling through Omaha on our way to Denver and decided to stop in after talking about eating there for years. We initially met the chef when he was at Spenser's and loved his food there. We never had the chance to get to his restaurant before this. The charcuterie plate was wonderful and we added the Foie And... More
