Ambiance and service were impeccable. Food was beautifully presented and delicious. Sommelier was very helpful in a selection. We have eaten everywhere, and this was a special experience. They deserve their Michelin star.
This was our first time dining at the Plume. When I made the reservation I didn't see that they had just earned their first Michelin star. Now, we have dined at a restaurant that has three Michelin stars & I must say that I have no idea why Plume only has one. We did the tasting menu with the classic wine pairing. The food was exquisite. The duck brought tears to my eyes. The bison was just phenomenal. The wines paired with each dish were perfect. Our server & wine server were excellent & personable. We have now found our special occasion restaurant.
The decor was as expected for a classic hotel but we were very comfortable and treated like royalty by everyone from beginning to end. The food was delicious and the wine recommendations were perfect. Very accommodating.
We celebrated our anniversary on New Years Eve with the special price fixed menu. Everything was delicious and the service superb. It is very hard to justify the price, though. Early seating dinner for two with two drinks each and tip was a little more than $600. The only meal we have eaten that was more expensive was at the Inn at Little Washington, and it wasn’t much more expensive than Plume. The price will probably keep us from returning.
We were guests of the hotel and have dined at Plume 4 other times. This experience was much different. Because of where we were seated, it was a constant flow of people going through the door to the bathroom and the wait staff running in and out of the kitchen with their large trays of food ...that was our view, those were our sounds. We had the same waiter as we had a year ago and our experience with him was the same...disappointing.
The food was, as it has always been, amazing. They could do a better job at blocking off the area to the kitchen as no diner should have to spend what should be a special evening , wishing to experience Plume the way it’s meant to be, wishing they were seated somewhere else.
Very sad for us. No one seemed to think there was any sense of urgency to make our evening one to remember
The worst experience ever. Even though I had a reservation was seated 45 minutes late. Got seated at the worst table in restaurant by the food service corridor. Later in the meal the waiter placed a knife in the table. It stuck the table because it had food in the back side of the knife. After I got home I noticed my velvet jacket was covered in food on the back because I was seated with my back to the food service area the bus boys and food service were spilling food all over it. This place is the worst. Don’t waste your money
We spent Christmas Eve at Plume and was absolutely wonderful! Ambiance is great and the service was perfect. The menu was delicious as well the wine selection and cocktails selection. An evening to remember! And come back!
Excellent food and service, multi-course tasting with wine pairings was excellent.
We were looking forward to Plume since last year it was so nice. This year it was awful. My worst dinner experience of the year. Service was terrible. The water server spilled water all over the table as he would hold the bottle from the bottom of the bottle. He would reach over people to pour water. Just terrible. Our waiter seemed to not know what was in each dish and he also spilled wine on me.
We got the Vegetarian menu. It was inedible. We came home and ate a sandwich afterwards.
We were so disappointed since we had a wonderful experience in the past. I really felt ripped off.
