I took someone very special to dinner the day after Valentine's Day to enjoy a more peaceful, charming evening together. We enjoyed the ambiance of this quaint, charming restaurant. The service from the minute we stepped into the Inn until we left was superb; friendly, helpful but not overbearing. The food was prepared, presented & served at high standard.
We were first presented with a complimentary amuse-bouche that was creative & delicious. I ordered the raw oysters, a ragu fazzoletti & the NY strip steak. All were delicious!
Most of the restaurants I go to leave me wanting, or just plain forgetful. We left that evening with smiles on our faces, full bellies & a promise to return soon.

The food and service was great, wonderful wine selection and tasting menu is good if you don't know what to order. I went for a business dinner and the staff was very attentive and this is a great place to introduce yourself to a client.

I am a frequent diner at the Plucky. It never disappoints. The service and food are always exceptional as is their cocktails and wines.

Fabulous wine list and that is the main reason to visit. The Pluckemin 200 is a list of wines that cost less than $75. And there are many great options. There is a separate list for those who can afford more. The food is well cooked and classic. Not much pushing of boundaries here but well executed. Staff are knowledgeable and appropriately attentive. The crowd here is typically 50 plus (in my experience). Roaring fire, French Syrah and good food. 2 thins up.

Overall experience was lovely - however, for price and current reviews, the dinner did not meet my expectation. Our table was very nice and what I requested, near the fireplace on second floor. The service was attentive, but not super. Wait staff did not know answers to menu questions and it was not consistent. Appetizers were highlight of dinner and they were excellent - grilled octopus tender and flavorful, winter salad beautiful presentation and again great flavors. Entrees were lacking in flavor - especially the winter risotto - bland and portion size extremely small - for "requested entree". Desserts good - especially the cheesecake, fluffy, great flavor and perfect size.

We went for the first time and don't know why we waited so long. It's fine dining in a comfortable, classy setting. Our waitress was very knowledgable on the menu. Two of the small plates with a small order of fish was perfect for one person. The beef tartar was decadent. The octopus was tender. Everything was delicious. Can't wait for our next special occasion to make another visit!

The only reason for the poor review was the price of the food for the value received.
The service and atmosphere were outstanding

Pleasantly surprised. I expected good, but this place was awesome. The service had it's flaws, but overall was good. The food was remarkable. The various tables were not too close to one another. They were able to accommodate my vegetarian wife and she is the tends to have difficulties. I had the pork and king crab salad. Left satiated even after dessert. Truly a gem and I will certainly return!

Bar uncomfortably packed when waiting for table (wasn't ready on time)
Always find it challenging to get "excited" about menu items, but good well prepared. Wine list extensive, but limited moderate priced items. Luckily great company offset shortcomings.

One of my favorite restaurants. The food, service and ambiance are consistently excellent. The only slightly negative comment is that the gluten free options are limited. The wine list is truly awesome - awe inspiring. And, the best deal on wine is on Friday evenings. We absolutely love this place!
