A word from The Grey Plume
As a new restaurant to Omaha, The Grey Plume focuses on seasonality and sustainability. We change our menu often, basing our cuisine on local farmer's supply. When possible we preserve produce from Nebraska and the region at harvest for the winter months. The Grey Plume works in partnership with The Green Restaurant Association and is the first and only Certified Green Restaurant in Nebraska. Enjoy the comfortably elegant dining atmosphere for dinner.

Diner Reviews
  • "We have dined at the Grey Plume three times, and it has been better each time, but always good. This experience was especially good! The rabbit was delicious, as was the beef strip. Highly recommend this restaurant for a nice date night. It is pricey, but worth it."

  • "Living in Midtown we have access to several great food venues but Grey Plume ranks up there. Great food with elegant presentation and a wonderful atmosphere. Service was enjoyable and friendly. We'll surely return."

  • "We felt the dishes were lacking in a few places. For the most part the food was cooked well and had a great plate presentation. The brussels sprouts were undercooked and too crunchy. The chicken roulade had no filling, which seemed strange to me. The food was seasoned very assertively. Towards the end of my meal I felt like my tongue was covered in salt. The duck fat fries were not crisp at all, which is not what you want in a french fry. The food was good, but the heavy handedness on the salt, undercooking of the brussels sprouts, lack of filling on the chicken roulade, and the soft duck fat fries left something to be desired. The food was good, but it wasn't good enough to justify a c-note for two people."

  • "Trout was great flaky and moist, delicious. Halibut was a little salty for my taste but still good. A great special occasion restaurant."

  • "This was our second visit to The Grey Plume. It is in a class by itself - our absolute favorite restaurant in town. Beyond the food - which is exquisite - the atmosphere is amazing. We felt immediately welcomed and taken care of by the staff. Clayton Chapman took the time to leave the kitchen throughout the evening to welcome people and make sure everyone was having a good experience. Our waiter was knowledgeable, really friendly but never hovered too much. We can't wait to go back - and to check out the store when it opens later this Spring."

  • "We have come to expect nirvana at the Grey Plume and it doesn't disappoint! ALL the staff is attentive and warm, always in an authentic way. Every morsel, from appetizer to dessert was sublime. Thank you!"

  • "We had been to The Grey Plume about 14-months ago with a large group of 10 people (a family reunion). Our dinner, it was a WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE! This time, with just three (3) of us...not so wonderful. The appetizer, wine selection and dessert were top-notch. Our main dishes, at best, were fair: One rabbit was only luke-warm; both lamb orders were cooked "rare"...ordered M/R & M. What was missing from (at least) the main dish was...consistency! This experience has dampened my enthusiasm for those "Up-Scale" & "Sheek" restaurants in Omaha! However, I'm willing to risk a third visit (someday) to allow this establishment a more positive review from me."

  • "Rated best gourmet burger in Omaha. Big miss in my opinion. Even though it was cooked perfectly the flavor was very bland and the bun fell apart after the second bite. This was noted in the review by Mindy. I know this place is high end but some salt, pepper. and ketchup on the table, or even offered when the meals came would have been a plus. when asked for some ketchup they came with a house made concoction that tasted like tomato paste. My wife had the tri tip plate and was satified but not blown away. The night did not go buy without a hit though. We had the duck duck fries with an egg and truffle oil on top and i don't think i have ever had a better appetizer in my life. We will return soon if not just for this. Great service"

  • "Besides tasting spectacular, the food, dishes and presentation are stunning. Our friends had never been to the Grey Plume and I am certain they will be back."

  • "My friend took me to TGP for my 31st Birthday Celebration. The service was 5Star. From coming in until leaving. I can't explain how excellent everything was and how special I felt going there."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "The presentation and flavors in the dishes is amazing. I am as excited to take a picture of the plated food as I am to eat it."
    Dined on 3/25/2014
  • "The Ricotta Gnocchi was excellent, however we received only three gnocchi for $11. I had the Strip Sirloin for $34. I received four fourth inch thick pieces of sirloin. The meat was tough and a miniscule portion for $34. Except for the potatoes, the vegetables were excellent. The potato puree was bland and had taken on a greyish color."

  • "Our meals--the pork many ways and the Steelhead Trout--were wonderful, prepared with care and offered astonishing nuances of flavor. We plan to go back whenever we are in Omaha."

  • "Great restaurant with a hip and sophisticated atmosphere. Fresh, local food served by attentive wait staff. Home made/prepared bread and butter were delicious! Never got to dessert because we were so full."

  • "This was our first time coming here, after planning weekend after weekend to make it in. Everything from the introduction from the hostess, pleasant demeanor of the waiter, food presentation and incredible quality, wine selection...all the way down to the unique and elegant way the left overs were wrapped :) We loved it, and it is in our VERY VERY top favorite restaurants !! Thank you! Zac and Kristin"

  • "Arrived early and staff was extremely hospitable. We had some downtown time and drank a potent old fashion!! Enjoyed charcuterie plate especially the soft whipped cream cheese spread and summer sausage The trout was so fresh, tender and Arrived on a beautiful ceramic plate! Drank a bottle of wine nicely decantered and had a more cheese for desert and chocolate soup. The dining area was filled with soft dusk light as the sunset and the noise level was peaceful quiet. Wonderful evening"

  • "Love the relaxed feel of this place. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The beef dish was excellent! Service overall was great but felt like at times it took too long to get someone to the table."

  • "Chef Clayton and his team consistently provide wonderful food in a comfortable setting. Beyond the food, make sure to try a mixed drink, as the Grey Plume produces the best drinks in town."

  • "We enjoyed the whole experience! There was a cute "happy anniversary card" on our table signed by the staff on a quiet table. Our server was so knowledgeable and offered great pairings. The food was really unique and delicious-we definitely aren't waiting for another anniversary to enjoy the "Grey Plume" again."
    Dined on 3/3/2014
  • "Staff was very knowledgeable about the food and attentive while not overbearing. Selections were numerous while still keeping the local fare zest and trendiness of a quaint, intimate experience. There were 8 of us in my party. All would return and thoroughly enjoyed the restaurant."

  • "Went last Friday to celebrate finding out we are going to be parents! My wife had been craving baked brie all week. Noticing it was not on the menu, I made a special request for it when booking my table. As soon as we showed up to the restaurant, the hostess told us the chef had prepared one specially for us. The rest of the food was great, as has been the case the other 3 or 4 times we have eaten here, and we feel that they go out of their way to make the evening special. Next time I am going to request a vase full of M&M's with all of the yellow ones removed just to see how far they will actually go :-)"

  • "My husband and I recently went to the Grey Plume to celebrate our anniversary. The service was excellent and the food was amazing. I especially loved the Duck Fat Fries, Gnocchi, Vegetable Raggouet (sp?), and the ice cream. OK that was pretty much everything I ate but it was all great. We don't know why we don't go there more often but definitely want to take advantage of their walk-in bar experience more often."

  • "We started with cocktails at the bar, a French 75 and a Cattleman's/, with an Atty as the second cocktail. All were superb. We also sampled some Crème de Violette and had a pleasant conversation with the bar tender. We both had Pork 7 ways, absolutely delicious. We ended our meal with some crème brulle and home made Irish Cream. All in all a great meal. This is our favorite place to eat in Omaha,"

  • "We went for our 10yr anniversary and turned out to be a good choice. Service was polite and knowledgable of the menu. The food was very very good and appealing to the eye. It was an overall great atmosphere for our celebration. I would definitely go again and recommend it. It was snowing that night so it was very cold. Fortunately there is a parking structure right next to the resturant which is free under 3 hrs. We liked the place so much we didn't realize we stayed 2 1/2 hrs."

  • "What a wonderful jewel nestled in the middle of Omaha. It was a truly lovely dining experience. We had the 5 course chef's choice sampler meal. The pig was fed apples for 30 days before being butchered. We will go back often. The waiter was very knowledgeable. This is high class dining. Wonderful!"

  • "I loved Grey Plume, but our last visit fell so far below expectations. The restaurant was overbooked and the staff was so stressed that they became unfriendly and angry. We waited 45 minutes to be seated, despite having a reservation. It was Valentine's Day, so I tried to be extra patient. The hostess was frantic and didn't bother to apologize or even smile. Our waiter was surly - no greeting, no eye contact, no smile. We ordered from the fixed-price menu with wine pairings, but the timing was really messed up with drinks arriving long after the courses. The food was good, not up to the usual GP standards, but not bad. For a $200+ bill for two, the service was simply unacceptable."

  • "We love the Grey Plume! The food is fantastic, the service absolutely superb, and the atmosphere is great. The artwork is a wonderful addition and adds to the ambiance. Looking forward to our next visit and what surprises we find on the menu."

  • "The Grey Plume is Omaha's Best Restaurant. Clayton Chapman creates an environment that is much more than gourmet. There is not only passion behind the creations, but a sense of purpose for the food, the space and the welcome. You feel like you belong here. And for all the right reasons. The space is elegant, yet approachable, and very inviting. The food is inventive, surprising, satisfying and impeccable. The menu choices are smart and purposeful and the accompaniments are perfectly paired. Presentation is exquisite. You would be hard pressed to find a handful of restaurants in the U.S. as finely crafted and as genuinely managed as The Grey Plume."

  • "I was celebrating my birthday with a friend. The Grey Plume is a place we both know and love and we were excited all day in anticipation of spending an evening there. It was one of the best birthdays I've ever had. Impeccable service (even received a birthday card signed by the staff!), absolutely delicious food, good choice of wine (aided by Katherine), wonderful ambiance and the pleasure of the company of a very special friend. We were greeted like old friends, which always gives one the warm fuzzies. I would eat their every week if I could. Bravo on every level!"

  • "The food, the atmosphere, the people - everything, is always excellent. This is the restaurant to go to if you want to celebrate ANYTHING! The duck fat fries are one of the best appetizers, but if you want something else, the chef and crew are more than willing to help you identify something that would fit within any of your nutritional needs or dietary requirements."

  • "We LOVE food , of all kinds. The food was great , then they overdid it - they "pickled and citrused" up way too much for our liking. Alittle would have been a lot more effective. ..also, can't really see what exactly you are eating, due to LOW lighting.... Candles /not a sprig of parsley would help at each table !!! ...still a nice enjoyable meal."
