We had a lovely experience dining here for my wife's 50th birthday. We thoroughly enjoyed the tasting menu and the wine pairing took the guess work out of selecting. Our server J described each wine with enthusiasm and each one was as he said. We appreciated the chocolate birthday plate to cap off a perfect evening. We will certainly return.
As usual, the restaurant was superb. Food, service, ambience excellent. Never been disappointed. Our friends loved it.
I am always pleased with the food and service at the Pluckemin Inn. It is one of my favorite restaurants for special occasions.
Excellent wine list; delicious food, and gracious service. A treat for a special occasion or just a night out. The fireplaces add a touch of romance and comfort.
Delightful evening. There were four of us. We were seated at a perfectly lit table, lots of room, service very well paced. Food delicious. We had a driven an hour+ and felt it was worth every mile.
Favorite place. Great food, service. Unbelievable wine list.
On many visits, the food, service and ambiance has always been 5 stars all the way. Not inexpensive, but worth every penny. Will be back many more times in the future.
Dinner options are excellent. Choose from the Tasting Menu or A La Carte. Wine list is impressive with the top 200 offering reasonable priced selection. Octopus and sea bass was perfectly cooked. Cinnamon and apple dessert to die for. Service was great.
Very enjoyable and relaxing dinner, excellently prepared and professionally served. A true American classic dining experience you don’t find much anymore. It’s expensive but you get what you pay for: excellent ingredients skillfully prepared with a lovely atmosphere to truly enjoy your dining experience. Come to relax and enjoy the “ride” at your leisure.
Great for relaxing night out with family and friends
It's always a wonderful dining experience here at the inn.
The food was innovative and delicious. The Salmon was cooked perfectly.
Food and service always great here. Such a nice atmosphere. Highly recommend.
Unparalleled quality of food The selections were enticing and absolutely not mundane!
Service and ambience make this venue a dining experience.
Can't wait to return.
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.
It was great we had a very helpful waitress and a seating by the fire..it was perfect..food was excellent..everyone had a great time
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!
We had a wonderful time. Beautiful, romantic atmosphere . The food was outstanding from the appetizers to dessert. Our server Renee was lovely. Overall this restaurant is a standout in the area. We will definitely be back.
Food was excellent. Impeccable service. Great wine list. One of best restaurants in the area.
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.
As usual the experience was excellent. We have been here many times. We brought our friends to celebrate a birthday, their first time. They will be back!!!
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!
The service and menu options were great but the ‘delivery ‘ left something to be desired.
dinner for our marriage anniversary. Third or fourth time there after couple of years, Felt the improvement in terms of menu and cooking. Cozy atmosphere, good service and expansive wine selection. Very popular bar as well. Will return.
Great Restaurant to spend a quiet evening with a special someone.
Luv this place, varied menu nice atmosphere quiet enough to enjoy friends but loud enough for a great vibe
We were meeting some friends from Michigan, in for the holidays, and just wanted a quieter place to chat with them. The Pluckemin Inn was lovely. We hung out together for a few hours. The waiter was attentive but not overbearing. The lunch menu was not extensive but had enough variety for everyone. They do not have a large selection of beers on tap but the local IPA was very good.
My bicycling club often starts at a lot near the Pluckemin Inn. I would drive by and keeping telling myself to try out this establishment. I'm glad I did!
Food is very good but if you want to command the prices they deserve, you have to match food with good service. We requested to see the server 3 times by way of the bread or water waiter. Wherever she hid, it was very good because we couldn't find her.
As always excellent service. Professional staff. Food was outstanding, nice portions. One of the best restaurants in New Jersey. Best in Somerset county by far.
Went with husband to celebrate wedding anniversary. Wonderful food and atmosphere!
Great Food and Service! Third time dining here in the last couple of years and have had a great meal every time. Wine list and seasonal cocktails are excellent.
Perfect in every way.
