Menu wasn't anything special. Priced too high for simple dishes. I believe there are better choices for the price.

Had the 6 course tasting menu, very fun experience. Tried a lot of new things and service was team orientated and on point. Never had to ask for anything.

Everything was delicious and beautifully plated. My only complaint is the 30 dollar corkage fee- one of the highest in town.

Scheduling vie OpenTable was easy and The Grey Plume called to confirm, since it was Valentine's weekend and having a special menu. Our waitress Patty was fun, informative and on-top of our order and needs. The food was fantastic, as always, with plenty of flavor for every taste bud.
If you've never been to The Grey Plume, just give it a chance and you'll be hooked.
Thanks for everything, every time, Clayton and The Grey Plume staff.

We dined at The Grey Plume for Valentine's and were rewarded with a wonderful fixed price menu and beverage pairing that was absolutely delightful! The kitchen and wait were in perfect harmony, never rushing and never waiting, resulting in an evening of wonderful tastes! We absolutely enjoyed the entire evening.

This was our first visit to The Grey Plume and we were delighted! Our server was so wonderful and helpful describing various dishes and her overall service! The atmosphere is very nice but not over-whelming. It's an up-scale environment but not at all intimidating. The food is spectacular and though I might not go there often, I love knowing that this kind of cuisine and service is available. It's a great place for any special occasion!

What a great find of a Beard semi finalist in Omaha! Duck fat fries with over easy egg gooing over them, butternut squash soup with panacotta and balsamic, and agnolotti (ravioli) with prosciutto! A wine list that’s diverse but not overwhelming. I would not order my pork entree again mainly as it was too much food. It was also a bit too linear with too much beet purée that took away from some of the pork diversity on the plate. I’d encourage the chef to reduce the beet usage on the dish and come up with complements for each pork option instead of a paint brush of beet purée! But otherwise stupendous!

Love Tessa as our waitress. Very informative and attentive Remembered me from the last time I was there 6 moths ago. Loved the chefs dinner with wine pairings. All the food was excellent, except the fowl dish. Served it on the bone which was difficult to eat and slightly dry. Not terrible, just not exceptional or diner friendly.
Would go back for Tessa!

Absolutely amazing experience! This is our second time to the restaurant and it was even better than our first experience, which we thought was not possible! We brought a couple with us, and it was their first time dining here. They commented they just couldn't believe when eating potato soup, that you could experience so many different flavors in one bite! The main course dishes we each had were beyond words delicious! We were sad when it ended.
If you're looking for an elegant, cozy, relaxing atmosphere, very warm and inviting with the best food your palate has come across, then visit The Grey Plume!! A gem in Omaha for sure!!

I’d eaten here twice before and had very good experiences. This time I was alone, opted for a light meal of two appetizer items, and planned on dessert. Hadn’t remembered how limited the menu is. Ordered duck fat fries (at $11.00) and a beef tartare. When they arrived the fries were soggy and relatively tasteless. I’ve had great duck fat fries before, these were a big disappointment. “Where’s the flavor?” I kept asking myself. The tartare looked great on the plate but was likewise lackluster as far as flavor goes. Just as I was about to order a crème brûlée for dessert the server told me they were out of that item, and no other option appealed so I passed. On a quiet Friday night ( the restaurant was at most at 50% occupancy at 7:30 ) you’re telling me that one of only 4 dessert choices is unavailable? C’mon...

It’s a nice few rooms, the noise level is where I like it to be (low!), but the culinary experience was sorely lacking.

The NYE Experience was honestly the worst dining experience I have had in a long time. For $125 per person and automatic 20% gratuity (really? For just two people and there really is no interaction with the waiting staff...) I could have gone to a restaurant elsewhere and actually filled up on food I enjoyed. I didn't see any information relevant to the pricing beforehand either, which awesome!

If you enjoy being fed 1.5 ounces of mediocre (excluding the elk dish) food six times over the span of four hours, then this is your best bet! So unhappy and I'm now out $400, love it. /s

This was a NYE price fix 6-course menu. Overall, the food was excellent as was the service. Value for the money, however, was not there overpriced by nearly double the competition and portions were small, some would say tiny, bordering on pretentious; especially for Omaha. Very nice to do it once, but will stick to drinks and appetizers here if we’re ever in the area again.

I thought the service could have been better. The server really did not engage us much. I think they were too busy. Also, it took forever to get our payment processed. My wife’s meal, the pasta, was so-so. I got the pork tasters and I thought the pork loin was a bit dry but overall we had a pleasurable experience.

I so badly want to love this place but both times we have gone the experience was not great.
We made a reservation on open table and it said there was just a 5 pm left open for the whole evening. When we arrived at 450 no one was ready for us and the place was completely empty and remained almost empty until 630.
We had written in advance that there was one vegan. When we went to order they only offered one option which was just cooked vegetables with a tomato sauce. No grains no and no protein and nothing special. There was however a nice lavender soda.
My partner had the pheasant and it was dry and had the exact same vegetables as in my dish. No vegan options for desert either. Just expected more from this place. I like the eco friendly aspect but felt the food was no different than what I could whip up in a skillet for myself. Had been to Au Courant in Benson this past week as well and it far surpassed my expectations as did the Monarch.
Sorry to say we won't go back to Grey Plume.

Celebrated our anniversary as we have the last several years here. Strted with great craft cocktails at the bar. I enjoyed the TD Niche Heritage pork, nicely presented with the pork prepared several ways. My wife had the Roast Pheasant, which she enjoyed immensely. We started with the Morgan Ranch Wagyu Beef Tartare, I could have made a meal out of several servings of this. All in all another memorable evening at Grey Plume

Beautiful restaurant, very good service, but we were disappointed in the entree quality - one of us had the pork, and the loin was very gristley, and the sausage was dry and unexpectedly spicy. For the price paid, we expected better. Pheasant was delicious but hard to eat. The soup and salad were wonderful. Overall a nice place to try - very unique and very different.

The ingredients were fresh. The wine was excellent. We all felt that there too many favors on the plate. My husband ordered the trout and although there were favors on the skin, the fish itself was not tasty. My daughter's steak was good. I had the Agnolotti which was not cooked enough. There were so many favors that I had a hard time deciding what I was eating. The restaurant decor is lovely. I usually tip at 20% so this was not a problem. Overall, I can cook so when I go out, I like to be super impressed. The food was good but not outstanding.

I try not to be too critical, but our experience with this restaurant, and specifically the food, was quite disappointing. The simplest way to say it is that each protein in the entrees that night were served with the same accompaniments that included a heaping portion of an overpowering garlic puree and a few other random items like apples cut with a melon baller. Lets just say I have to question a chef that will serve whole trout, pheasant, pork and other proteins with the exact same accompaniments with no thought given to whether those ingredients make sense with the preparation of the protein. Over-hyped food for sure.

The chef prepared a special vegan dish for our whole party it was delicious, but less than filling. It would have been great if some sort of grain or polenta had been included. Overall it was a great experience! Would love to see some vegan options on the menu.

Always reliable and delicious. The heritage pork sampler is always a standout, as is the steelhead trout, both served with seasonal vegetables and special touches. I have Celiac Disease and the fact that everything here is from scratch makes it easy to have options. The butternut squash soup currently on the menu is fantastic.
