Quarterly, we meet good friends at Forbes for dinners. Generally, we arrive early, enjoy a cocktail at the bar - great bartenders... love the tall handsome guy busy with kids, a dog...life. Makes a perfect Rusty Nail. Service is impeccable... only the cuisine surpasses everything! Really Fabulous! Very, very popular.

About the restaurant
The Plumed Horse Restaurant has been a beacon of South Bay fine dining since 1952. Led by Executive Chef Peter Armellino, it is a destination for those travelling to visit, yet retains its landmark status as a place to relax, unwind, enjoy, and indulge for locals. Michelin has agreed, awarding Chef Peter a star for 15 consecutive years.

Chef's tasting menu, composed of multiple courses featuring items from local farms and fishermen, is the highlight. A la carte is offered in select seatings on certain evenings.

Wear whatever makes you comfortable, but you are here for a special night out, dressing up is fun! While not required, suits, sportcoats and classy attire will generally get you the best seats in the house.

We are an "adult restaurant." If you are bringing in younger patrons, we want to make it a great experience for every guest. We ask for no tablet or cell-phone entertainment that might disturb others. This is your night to make memories with each other as a family.

Excellent dining experience and the food and service was outstanding! Prices are up everywhere, so I expected to see the higher prices, but if just 10% less would have made the difference.

Amazing experience & amazing food! Night started off with bone broth given at the host stand. I think it is very nice the host and waiting area is separated from dining, makes the dining experience even better! You then pass their beautiful kitchen and walk into a gorgeous dining area, you almost forget you are in the Pruneyard! Server was friendly and a great resource as to the menu. We ordered a mocktial (yummy) and a cocktail and both were delicious. We were then surprised by a nice fresh veggie surprise from the chef. After we had small bites and the stone fruit first course. We then shared one of the delicious Japanese steak options with two sides. The dessert menu looked amazing and we were very tempted but we were in a rush to get to a concert so we will have to save dessert for next time! But fun surprise was there was a table when you exit with a variety of nostalgic candy which was really fun ending to the night! All in all great experience and we will definitely return!

About the restaurant
We believe wine is better with food & food is better with wine. A perfect pairing is an experience everyone should enjoy....often. Our unique approach to food and wine means we are "wine first". We first curate the wine list which includes 50+ wines by the glass and then we design a food menu that specifically complements the wine. The kitchen is led by Executive Chef Julian Silvera who spent his early culinary career in restaurants in his native NYC. He then took his talents to Florida's Knife and Spoon, where he helped garner a coveted Michelin star. Chef Julian is passionate about sourcing hyperlocal ingredients and has a strong focus on sustainability. Our service team includes ten sommeliers and is proud to offer guests more than 500 wines by the bottle. We are a casually elegant wine bistro open Tues-Sat 5PM to 10PM with live music nightly. The Champagne Bar is open daily noon-10PM. Children are welcome on the patio. The Wine Bistro and Champagne Bar seats adults only.

My server was great, “Del Toro” was his name. Asked a lot of questions on how we wanted stuff served and gave me a taste of a wine. Timing was great too. I had (and 3 of our table of 5 had) the prime rib (14oz) again and again there was a lot of sinew- I had it on July 3rd this year also (but had the 20oz) and they had sinew also. The meat is tender but thru the center of the cut there’s the sinew. In the Bay Area, Harris’s has the best, House of Prime rib is 2nd best and just trying to find a place down here that compares. It’s more expensive here too - just don’t wanna drive up to the city for PR every time. Also the au jus needs salt and can be richer. The sides are very small for $16. That is why I gave 4 starts on food and value. Caesar salad was excellent - no crouton fillers. Salmon was excellent. The chicken roll thing me wife got was very dry (and she loves dry burnt stuff). The place is nice but loud and don’t look at the ceiling - would be nice if they finished that off for some final touches of ambiance. Again, come for the service - if the food, value was a bit better I’d come more often.
