    Great experience, service, and food as always. It’s a great space in winter or outside in summer. We go earlier when it’s a bit more quiet. Didn’t love the Ceasar salad this time—seemed dry—but ate it all anyway but everything else was excellent. This is the best restaurant in Truckee/Olympic Valley/Tahoe City area.

    A darker more intimate dining experience. The food was excellent with some eclectic choices like Southern Fried Game Hen with Jalapeño Cornbread Waffles. I had the rustic Roasted Mushroom Tagliatelle. Yummm! Fun cocktails too. I understand that their menu changes too. Enjoy!

    Service was not at the caliber of an upper scale restaurant. Prices were much too high for what we ordered. We’re not cheap and eat at many fine restaurants but the food and service were not at all a value. The food was OK but not at a level based upon your pricing. It’s sad when the best meal ordered at our table of 4 was the hamburger… Quite doubtful we’ll return to PlumpJack for sometime if ever… Just a note: We’ve attended a few weddings at PlumpJack (including hosting my daughter’s) and I was never this disappointed.

    This was such a disappointment and a huge decline from the Plumpjack in the past. Our Rose came room temp after 30 minutes and it went downhill from there. The high end menu was gone and the execution was bland and poorly cooked. I’m sad to report this!

    Really enjoyed the menu, food and service here. Every bite delicious. Very extensive wine selection and the bartenders create anazing cocktails here. Alisa was our server and she was anazing. We had the Burrata Salad, Halibut and the veggie pasta. All delicious. Highly recommend this restaurant as well as their hotel the next time your in Lake Tahoe, CA.

    A special place to go for dinner. We had a group of five and had cocktails and shared a bottle of Plumpjack Chardonnay all of which we liked a lot. The warm bread and butter with volcanic salt is so good. The menu is always different based on what fresh ingredients they get. All of us enjoyed our dinner. My halibut was cooked perfectly. My husband was particularly grateful because the chef special made a vegan dinner for him and he almost licked the plate clean he liked it so much. We tried two of the desserts even though we were full and they were amazing too! Definitely recommend. Reservation’s advised.

    I can't really say anything about the restaurant because I was never notified that it was going to be closed on the night of my reservation. I made the reservation about a month in advance, received a text the day before asking if I wanted to confirm my reservation so I did. I even got a notification that day that my reservation was coming up. But then when I walked into the lobby of the hotel to arrive for my reservation it was clear the restaurant was not open. The receptionist for the hotel informed me that the restaurant was now closed Mon-Weds but I was never informed of that prior.

    We had a great family dinner at PlumpJack during our stay at Palisades. Our family of 4 included two teenagers. Everyone enjoyed their meals, but unfortunately the restaurant was sold out of the burger (my son wanted one). He ended up ordering the halibut, my other son got shrimp and grits, my husband ordered the Cornish hen with waffles, and I had the bucatini (so good!). We topped it all off with the berry crunch dessert, that everyone loved! My favorite of the night, however, was the bottle of PlumpJack Chardonnay!

    This place is cozy, but their were issues. 1) too many loud children. I luv kids, but we were surprised to see and hear so many in this type of upscale place, on a Friday night. 2) service. I understand that finding good help now a days is challenging. The people who sat us, took drink orders, and brought out food were great. Our server, who I see as the QB,... terrible. Did not respond to simple routine requests, (water, ,bread...etc) we had to ask others for this. But she did take the bread away without asking, too soon, and then charged us for it... which was not obvious prior to asking for it...) 3) food was good, but not hot. But their was no server to correct that, which, given her responsiveness, we would not have done. Perhaps it was just a bad night?

    We look forward to dining at Plump Jack each time we come to Palisades. Food is always top notch. The prices were outrageous, even for the village. We invited a couple along and we’re embarrassed.
