I was visiting Washington DC for 10 days and had read good things about Plume so I went there for dinner, not once, but TWICE on my visit. Both times the food was exquisite, the service was impeccable, and the atmosphere is perfection. Both times I thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience. They know how to do this right and everyone was genuinely enthusiastic about my having a wonderful experience.
Birthday celebration. It was perfect.
A really great dining experience! If you're a foodie, this is a great place to go. The wine list is huge and a little overwhelming, but the wine director came out himself and helped us make a choice. Service was great, food was amazing! Highly recommend!
Been to Plume often.
Excellent! Loved the food and service. All was great.
Food amazing service amazing
Superb service, great food, excellent wine with each course, and a great ambience!
We had an excellent evening and Betsy enjoyed her birthday celebration.
Fabulous! Outstanding food and spectacular service. Wine pairings were spot on. Duck pate and dessert were the best. Fish was a little bland but still delightful.
Good food, but not exceptional. Wonderful, romantic ambiance with a special occasion date feel. There were unnecessary gaps between some courses and an incredible delay for dessert. Fantastic wait staff with perfect recommendations. As a NYer accustomed to fine dining (Daniel, Le Bernardin, Per Se, etc) this experience was notable but not memorable.
We went to Plume for our 5th Anniversary. It was stellar. The ambiance, the table (we sat in one of the 3 recessed tables, completely away from the world), the food, the service (Paul was amazing)! Can't say enough!
Excellent, inventive food. Attentive service.
Great meal with great service. Nice place and very comfortable. Reason not 5 stars on food rating was a slight miss on the sauce for the lobster on the tasting menu. Small point. Everything else was really good. Fois gras was a standout. Great wine list.
The cocktail was bad, and we’ve tasted better food. For a Michelin rated restaurant the food was disappointing. The location is good and the restaurant interior is very nice. The staff is a little arrogant. Bad cocktails and average food. It is served pretty but it does not taste out of this world for the money you’ll pay for it.
Have been to plume before and again they have not disappointed. Everything prepared perfectly. Great service. Love the dining room, especially on the Greenhouse side (they have nice quiet tables in side rooms).
It is a bit pricey, especially markups on wine, but nothing unexpected for the venue and Michelin star. Very formal atmosphere, which actually is a nice feature for a special occasion dinner.
Menu also has plenty of variety, so even if you are a vegetarian, you can do just fine here.
Amazing culinary experience. The tufted purse bench was a nice touch. Pre appetizer, pre dessert, post dessert, and even chocolates upon exit really made you feel pampered.
Fantastic service. Fantastic food. Excellent wine list. What more can anyone ask for?
More than just wonderful food, it's a dinner experience. The service is phenomenal.
Great for and service. The ambiance is also very nice and cozy with a nice hint of romantic
Best meal I have ever had. In addition, the atmosphere and staff was so accommodating and polite. One of the best dining experiences I have ever had. I have been to Michelin star restaurants in New York, San Francisco and Washington DC. This is one of the best, if not the best. Well deserved Michelin stars.
Great food. Greater service. The restaurant offers free valet and complimentary chocolate. They also arranged my special requests well. Very satisfied. Willing to revisit again.
We loved everything about it !
Went for a Birthday celebration and it was memorable. The food was outstanding, excellently prepared and imaginatively presented. The service was impecible. It almost was like private dining. The staff were always one step ahead on everything. The wine list is extensive and well planned. There is something from every region. You should be able to easily find something to complement your food and your tastes. the4 staff is very knowledgeable and can offer suggestions, if needed. Plume is a great Washington restaurant and especially suited for celebrating any special occasion.
Had our anniversary dinner while staying at the hotel. Staff was very attentive to details food was great!
My sister and I had an incredible dinner here tonight. Wonderful service and delicious food. They have a beautiful restaurant that is intimate and special.
A wonderful dinner with outstanding service. Everything was spot on and the whole experience was just perfect.
We had a cozy quiet spot for our dinner, which was perfect for my husband's birthday dinner. The food was fantastic and they were able to make all sorts of accomodations for my allergies and preferences. I would highly recommend.
Cristian was fantastic as was the food and your sommelier! Wonderful birthday experience.
The ambiance is perfect for sophisticated dining. Should require jackets. Very good table. Service staff well dressed and very knowledgeable, but lacked attentiveness. My wife's turbot and my veal were just average.
Great meal. Great service. Perfectly full. Outstanding food, every bite.
The food was beautifully prepared and presented. Everything we ordered was delicious. The service was excellent. The pace of the meal was well done. I highly recommend for a special occasion. It was our daughters 21st Birthday . Very memorable experience
Exquisite. From the time we arrived until we left, seven beautiful courses later, we couldn't have asked for better. Food, service and atmosphere all shone.
Excellent. The food was delicious and was almost outdone by the wonderful service. The staff were attentive without being intrusive. I will definitely return.
Fabulous experience! Well worth the price. Service was great and food was superb. Great location to celebrate a special ocasion.
Everything was spectacular!!
Tasting menu with wine pairing was incredible!
Thank you to the wonderful staff for an amazing wknd!
The Jefferson Hotel is a wonderful place!!
Plume is your grandfather's restaurant, as long as your grandfather was a well-paid New York City lawyer (mine was). It's very formal - wear a jacket - and a bit stuffy. It's quiet, so you can actually talk (hallelujah!), and the food is excellent, but it won't push your culinary boundaries. Safe, sound, good. There's an amuse bouche, a pre-dessert, a post-dessert, and all sorts of food in between. There are two basic options: prix fixe 3 course, or tasting menu. We did the 3 course and came away more than full. The blue crab risotto is excellent, and I loved my veal chop. My wife had oysters (not as briney as she might like), and the superb bison. So the food is good and safe. The wine list is pretty amazing - pricey, but deep. Lots of very professional staff, and it's a pretty place to have a meal (think serious date night or an anniversary). Worthy of the Michelin star, but I would there's more interesting food to be had and at a lower price points in the District (Plume is seriously expensive). If you want the sort of service that defined old-school elegance, the Plume is the place. Adventures in new tastes, probably not so much. However, I'm glad we went -
I cannot day enough about The Plume. From the moment we arrived to the time we left, everything was awesome. Service was impeccable and the food amazing. We began in the Plume Bar and our bartender was both informative and engaging. He shared information on different drinks and was very pleasant.
Dinner was magnificent. My wife and I had the Prix Fixe dinner and it could not have been better. Our servers were attentive and the Sommelier was spot on with his wine recommendations.
We departed with smiles on our faces and making plans for our return. Highly, highly recommend Plume.
We went here because it was listed on the top 100 Washingtonian restaurant list. We were so disappointed by the quality of the food and will certainly not return. However, the service was great, as was the sommelier. Do yourself a favor and look elsewhere for a fine dining experience.
