Excellent service , excellent food. My wife and I had a wonderful experience at The Plume whilst on holiday in DC. Duck in particular was very tasty and the chocolate bar dessert was inventive and tasted great. We had the fixed price menu and a bottle of wine which came with a pre desert and amuse bouche. Overall we spent $380 which considering the quality of the experience was not over priced

A wonderful dining experience. The service was outstanding from the time we were seated through presentment of the check. The pace of the courses was spot-on and the food had a variety of unique flavors paired with wine.

Service and ambiance were high quality, though one person in our group was awkwardly served a course when no one else was eating. The wine selection was perfect for our tastes. Unfortunately, the food was very mediocre at best - surprising for a Michelin Star restaurant. We’ll return to the Quill for drinks, but will definitely not return to Plume.

Our family surprised us with a bottle of wine & there was a hand written note on the table to announce it. Everything was done perfectly and the staff was outstanding. They all wished us a happy anniversary. Even the menu and the dessert had a happy anniversary! Perfect restaurant for a special occasion!

For a 1 Michelin starred restaurant this was pretty disappointing. I had a dietary allergy to the amuse bouche so I got a small bowl of "chickpea puree" - essentially a ok hummus. My first course was a tomato dish, with cherry tomatoes in tomato water. It tasted just like the tomatoes I buy at the farmer's market, no extra flavors or anything to make it special. My entree (duck) was ok, but again nothing special. The dessert was nice. Overall I am pretty sure you could do better somewhere else. I would suggest avoiding this place if you can.

We had a fantastic anniversary meal at Plume. I loved the pesto butter served with 3 styles of bread. The ambiance was lovely and our food was very excellent It was a lot of fun to see what was going to come out next. The pre appetizer and pre dessert were a great surprise.

Exquisite in every detail. Food as delicious as it is artistically presented. Service is impeccable. Wine list is extensive, but nicely arranged and very fairly priced. How could anyone give this restaurant anything other than 5 stars!

It was our 20th Anniversary and Christian took amazing care of us. From spot-on recommendations to the right amount of attentiveness, his service was outstanding. On top of that, the food was amazing. The portion sizes were "right," not too big, not too small. By the end of evening, we felt full but not stuffed. Pricey yes, but if you're looking for a very pleasant evening with an outstanding meal, I highly recommend Plume.

Rather surprised that there was no one at the hostess/ maitre de stand for over 5 minutes when we arrived...table was not great - up against a pole with a view
of door to kitchen . Food was ok but not Michelin star worthy...many other better places to eat in DC. Waiter Freddy was great!

The Plume was everything I hoped it would be. Gracious and yet American, (we missed the "jackets preferred" for my son and it was ignored except for our placement). Adventurous wine list I am glad I looked over before coming. It's affordable if you know where to look. And a waiter and sommelier who was both knowledgable and had a sense of humor. The food was fun, no other way to describe it. Beautiful without being precious. I could have eaten a vat of the beet panna cotta with salted pistachios (?) but it was an amuse bouche. The fois gras which I ONLY order as the rarest indulgence was worth the guilt. It was better than the Savoy Grill, which was the LAST time I ordered it. The duck breast was perfection. That's all. And the dessert called a candy bar, was maybe the best thing EVER. And totally unexpected by the description. I cannot emphasize that too highly. A multi layered sensual treat I will not soon forget.

From arrival to departure, our anniversary experience at Plume was outstanding. The restaurant deserves it Michelin star. Cost is very high, but the once a year experience is quite special.
