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
  • "I would describe myself as a foodie. We have two small children, so getting out and enjoying restaurants like The Grey Plume does not happen as frequently anymore. We came toThe Grey Plume to celebrate our anniversary. It did not disappoint. The service, the meal, the ambiance were all top notch. The meal - honestly, loved, loved, loved the Duck Fat Fries and both my husband and I thought our entrees were delicious. Quite fabulous, indeed! The Grey Plume is now on my list of favorites restaurants in Omaha! And really there is so much more to love about it, local food, organic, I loved all the Nebraska themes running through the very elegant and tastefully decorated restaurant. We will return!"

  • "I just can't wait to go back! From the first bite to dessert everything was outstanding! The chef/owner really knows how to treat his guests and makes you feel like your just not another customer. Even at the end of dinner he gives you a pastry to eat for the next morning, how sweet?! Great place, the food and service was way better than I could have imagined."

  • "I've eaten at a few "fancy" restaurants in my day, but this one tops them all!!! The food was excellent, and that's an understatement! I love the whole farm to table concept Clayton has and his palate is beyond compare. I highly, highly, highly recommend this restaurant!!!"
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "Quite simply, my meal was one of the best tasting, best served and best presented that I have ever had. I expected "very good," everything was superb!"
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "We had a great meal and the servers were very nice, but they need to step up their game with the reputation that this restaurant has."

  • "My husband had the new duck dish as his entrée and I had the salmon. All fantastic! Save room for dessert! We shared the rhubarb ice cream dish. Unbelievable. Kyle was our server and never missed a beat! Love this place. Worth the price."

  • "My wife and I are from out of town. We were looking for a quiet evening out. The food and service were amazing. We highly recommend The Grey Plume."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "The trout was prepared and presented perfectly. The salad seemed to be a montage of anything from the kitchen. There was so much going on in the salad it was hard to get a consistent bite. I prefer to have the fresh ingredients showcased, and not be hidden. The server was knowledgeable about wine parings, and was spot on. When leaving I was given a small bag with cookies to have with my breakfast, nice touch."

  • "We chose the Grey Plume for our 25th. It couldn't have been more pleasant. The food was outstanding. The whole experience was amazing. A special touch was a card left at our table congratulating us on our anniversary signed by all the staff"
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "Service and ambiance were excellent as in the past. I did not think my pedimontese beef ($35) was cooked appropriately. I asked for medium and it was burn. Only one piece had some red. The rest was well done. When I mentioned it to the waiter he said that it's a difficult piece of meat so the chef has a hard time cooking it precisely. Why do they offer it then? I basically chewed on expensive cardboard but the veggies were delicious as well my first plate beef tartare) and dessert (Cyrene brûlée). It was an utter disappointment."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Good place. I had the hamburger; the burger was dry but the other ingredients (especially the homemade sauce-aveoli) was really really good. I would recommend eating here."

  • "We entertained a business group of 30+ people at Grey Plume, and our out-of-town visitors were very impressed by the quality of the food and creativity of the presentation. The price was competitive with other restaurants for a group this size. Other times, we have had dinner there or have sat at the bar for "Happy Hour", and it has always been delightful."

  • "Midtown Omaha is very fortunate to be able to enjoy Clayton's culinary talents. If it was even possible, the creativity and quality of the food has gotten even better over the years."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "The place haunted me over the 2 years since I was last here. I was able to replicate and add to the experience - the trout w/ creme fraise spetzel was perfect. Pork prepared 4 ways was a marvel. The wait staff are always impeccable, the kitchen crew are capable of pulling off top shelf culinary art with a "no sweat" attitude. The Grey Plume has international recognition for really good reason. They could be all stuffy about their accolades - but to top it off with being culturally accessible makes it all the more impressive. Thanks Chef Clayton Chapman for you imagination when it comes to supporting local producers, and for supporting the community with your culinary generosity! May you remain on top for years and years!"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Chef Chapman and his crew can always be relied upon to deliver tasty, interesting food to satisfy any diner. They are happy to accommodate any dietary concerns or tailor any dish as needed. The staff is attentive without being intrusive, and Chef tries to get out to greet diners often. This is an outstanding choice for special occasions, but it is also a great option for an evening out any time. Try the bar menu, there are fun options to complement your wine or cocktail while seated up front! If you have not been to Grey Plume yet, you are missing out."

  • "The food and ambiance were great. A little pricey, so not someplace I can go all the time. Well worth it for a nice night out."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "This was my first time to the Grey Plume and certainly not my last. Our waiter was very helpful with the menu and wine list."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "Asparagus soup, steelhead trout first plate and wife's salmon were outstanding. Heritage pork entree a tad too spicy, intense for my senses. Service great, ambience warm/casual/intimate, all first rate."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "Definitely one of the most memorable meals I have had in Omaha over the past 20+ years. We came to celebrate a birthday and the four of us ordered from the menu (I was very tempted to simply place ourselves in the chef's hands for the eve, but wanted to try the menu items first and was glad we did as it was C Chapman's night off). The charcuterie was mixed and creative, the asparagus soup one of the best I have eaten, and everyone was very pleased with their entrees. Wine selection was good. Overall, a very satisfying experience."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "Food and atmosphere outstanding! Also enjoyed the wine list and service was great."

    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Was even better than anticipated from positive reviews. Food was fantastic! Try the 5 course tasting menu with the wine pairings! The chef even served us a few of the courses. The service is definitely top among Omaha establishments."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "Best meal we have ever eaten. The cocktails were delightful and the food is as always exquisite."
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "This is our favorite restaurant in town. It consistently blows our palates with it's innovative food. The chef is such an incredible person and his team shines. Definitely a restaurant for those who appreciate the tastier & finer food. A great and inexpensive bar menu, also!"
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "We decided to try the Grey Plume again and had the chef's special - Pork Ribyeye for 2. We both felt the it was liittle underdone. With so many great resaurants in Omaha. We feel that the service is great but the food has been below expectations."
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "We celebrated our anniversary recently and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The food was exquisitely prepared and each bite was tantalizing to the taste buds right from the start of the little cheese bite you are given initially down to the butter cookies on the way out. You can tell that the presentation is viewed as an art form. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone expecting high quality food prepared in a unique way in a nice, quiet atmosphere. Prices are reasonable given the quality and effort that goes into it. Thank you for a great evening out for our special day."
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "As always, our meal at the Grey Plume was great. All courses of the meal were prepared and plated beautifully. The staff members were friendly and knowledgeable. Also, the mixed drinks are exceptional here - definitely the best in town."
    Dined on 6/9/2014
  • "Our second time here, both were for our anniversary. Our friends joined us this time, always nervous when taking someone new, wanting them to share your feelings about a place. Well, the Grey Plume met that expectation...even for our male friend who is NOT a foodie. Everyone's favorite was the duck fat fries. I imagined something greasy/heavy...not the case. At breakfast the next morning someone mentioned how they certainly could use some duck fat fries right now. Kyle, our server, is from Tampa but in culinary school in Omaha. He did an excellent job. The chef's "treat" at the beginning was yummy as well. Noise was lessened by sitting in a corner rather than middle of room"
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "This was a return visit for our group of four and we are all looking forward to our next visit. We sampled the amazing duck fat fries with egg and the gnocch for appetizers. We also had salad (always fresh and vibrant) and the delicious cold asparagus soup and again marveled at the way the chef is able to transform soup into an artform. We enjoyed the beef, trout, and salmon for our entree's, all perfectly prepared and beautifully arranged on the plate. Dessert included a huckleberry mousse, a magical creation of rhubarb and chocolate, and the creme' brulee addict at our table loved the citrus creme' brulee. Two of us enjoyed The Grey Plume's interesting concoctions from the bar (love the addition of fresh herbs in the drinks)."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "This was our first visit. The meal started with an excellent amuse-bouche. We tried grilled asparagus (cold) soup and spring green salad, both of which were excellent. We had the King Salmon and the Chevre Agnolotti. Again, they were both wonderful. We would both rate the salmon as one of the best we've ever had. If we had any complaints at all, it would only be that we had to ask for bread (we weren't sure we got any with the service, but saw other tables get some so we asked) and I wanted to try a drink I saw two other ladies had. The waiter said it was a Grapefruit Mojito. When the drink was served, it was not the same color (they had pink drinks; mine was light green), but was still okay. Great date night restaurant for foodies!"
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "From the moment you step foot in the door, you feel like they are so thrilled to see you. You are treated so well and it's like everyone who works there wants you to have the best experience possible. Everything they do at The Grey Plume is well thought out and makes for a wonderful evening. The staff is very knowledgeable and helpful with suggestions from the bar or menu. It is easily the best place in town! "

  • "This was the first time we experienced anything like TGP. It was so much fun, we enjoyed every aspect of our evening, the service was incredible--water glass never went empty--the food was seriously amazing! I would recommend it to anyone and everyone! "
