The Plumed Horse
Lounge: Monday - Thursday: 5:00pm - 10:00pm, Friday - Saturday: 5:00pm - 1:00am
We had the tasting menu and added the suckling pig. Everything was delicious. The ambience was stunning and the service was impeccable. Every member of the staff we encountered was warm, friendly and inviting. The birthday girl described the evening as magical. I feel the same way.
Too loud and loud children allowed to dominate the room
Wonderful meal at Plumed Horse. We celebrated our wedding anniversary there. It was a perfect evening. Service was exceptional and food was wonderful. Particularly the house special soufflé.
Anniversary dinner at the Plumed Horse is always a great experience. The food is great (we did a la carte) but the prices are a little expensive. Service as always was great. We will definitely be back.
The combination of tiny portions and excessive prices made this a one and done experience.
Fantastic food paired with amazing swines and exceptional service.
Each of the food items were made with much care, and on top of that, the staff was extremely friendly, attentive, and caring. The waiters and waitresses were all knowledgeable about the food, and were very professional. The only bad thing was that each of the plates took a very long time to come; we stayed at the restaurant for almost three hours.
Fantastic food and service.
Amazing dining experience. We closed down the restaurant, a testament to the great time we had.
It's expensive for the quality of the food. I feel there is a lot of up-sale, we order tasting menu. Beef is tough. Food is beautifully presented. Taste is ok. Dessert is not impressive. I had better food for lesser price.
Plumed Horse is 5 star dining in charming Saratoga. Get the tasting menu. Jeff, the sommelier, is tremendously skilled at pairing the perfect wine. An amazing evening.
The small dining room we were assigned to was sparse with no wall art whatsoever, so it felt kind of like a little cave, as if the restaurant had just opened for business. Every person on our wait team was friendly except for our head waiter. He was unfriendly and seemed rather put upon. He repeatedly interrupted our conversations with his agenda, with no apology for doing so, and you'd think in an upscale restaurant like this, the head waiter would be the most discreet and courteous. Having said that, the cuisine was exquisite, and everyone else made us feel welcome. The complementary champagne for our friend's birthday was such a nice touch. We'll definitely be back as this is a neighborhood restaurant for us now, but will definitely ask for a friendly head waiter who appreciates our patronage.
Overrated. Too expensive for what is was. We did the tasting menu and was kinda disappointed.
Wonderful way for my wife and I to celebrate our anniversary. All perfect scores for me, except the sun was in my wife’s eyes for a brief period of time. But, the food was fantastic and the service was impeccable.
Excellent service, clever delicious food.. recommend the tasting menu.
Food was underwhelming. The chef's signature dish was also a supplement which is kind of odd. I would think it would be part of the tasting menu but its not. Service was mediocre at best. For a michelin star restaurant, I expected more. None of the dishes on the tasting menu stood out. The dessert courses looked nice but were awful.
The only dish worth getting that the uni and crab souffle.
Awesome place. Best wine I have ever had in my life. Food was very good with perfect presentation and service. Lots of new dishes I have never experienced before. This is definitely food as an art form.
Went here for an anniversary dinner. The food was outstanding and the service was top notch. Would definitely go back here for a special occasion.
I really like the place but the atmosphere and service is not up to par with the expectation set. I liked the quality of the ingredients, the execution and the plate setup but was expecting more for that price point
My wife and I had the vegetarian tasting menu. And I had the wine pairing as well. Everything in the restaurant including the food shows a great attention to detail. My favorites were the cold avocado soup and the soufflé. Attention from the staff was fantastic. Overall, it’s pricey but comes with a great experience.
The food was amazing. We ordered the tasting menu and then it took an hour before we received our first course. Not sure why such a larger gap in time. Otherwise everything else was great.
Entering the restaurant I was quite pleased at the new remodel. It had been many years since I’ve dinned at the restaurant. It was somewhat odd walking through a maze like hallway to the main dining room. As we walked I noticed several private rooms which looked inviting for a separate more intimate dining for a small group or large. Once in the main dining room it was light bright with a & very cosmopolitan feel. We were welcomed by a very pleasant & knowledgeable waiter along with his support servers. All well dressed, polite & very willing to answer all our questions. We brought our own excellent wine however I felt the corkage was extreme. Nevertheless we brought the right wine for your tasting menu. Oysters & soufflé were our appetizers & they were fabulous. The rest of our tasting was perfect. Each course exquisitely presented & the taste was delicious. Our waiter checked in several times but knew we were enjoying our meal & conversation so he was very observant & waited for our request for help. One entree was halibut which was slightly over cooked & oddly almost cold. Not worth complaining since everyone was enjoying their dinner. The birthday plate was beautiful & made our guest happy as well as the chocolate cart. Overall for a special occasion this was a perfect place.
My husband and I have been coming here for the past few years for date nights or to celebrate special occasions. I typically enjoy appetizers, but this time the tasting menu was great! However, it felt as though we were forgotten when it was time for the cheese course. We waited about 15-30 minutes and mentioned to two employees that it’s been a while. I wished I would’ve said something sooner, because we got really upset and were wanted to just leave.
It was really sad to have our dining experience end on such a bad way. Especially, when’s it’s an expensive place to dine at.
Overall a nice experience for a pre-graduation celebratory dinner. Lots of staff floating around and food was very good. Best part was the decor - a nice restaurant for sure. Only a few small complaints: our water glasses sat empty more than once and we had to catch the attention of a staff member to ask for a refill. The tasting menu was delicious but a few items were way too salty and the dessert was less than impressive - literally a few clusters of granola and a few small jelly like discs - kind of weird actually. And it was overpriced - you could order a whole entree and 2 full size appetizers each (same quality) and be just as satisfied and still save $ from the tasting menu. Seemed a little pushy with the “upsells” - appetizers, champagne cart, and supplements to the tasting menu. But I would still return, but be much more wiser on how to order from the menu to save $$.
My wife and I dined at The Plumed Horse for our 10th Anniversary Dinner. It was a last minute reservation because my wife had to a wedding rehearsal in the area, but we had a pleasant experience at the restaurant. The staff was knowledgeable, courteous, and professional. Highlights- the caviar, the soufflé, the squab, and the amazing wine list (and the cellar, which they were kind enough to show us). Thank you Plumed Horse staff for a memorable evening!
I have been to many Michelin star restaurants in the Bay Area and I’m sorry to say this is the worst Michelin experience I have had. The food is lack of flavor and sauce, and menu is lack of creativity. The tiger shrimp was small and not fresh, and the squab was over cooked and extremely tough. The dessert consists of some whip cream and yogurt and granola which I can make at home. Tasting menu is definitely over priced considering the amount and quality of food you get.
the food is good, but I felt a little bit understaffed on a Saturday night, it was not feeling as good as when we went here fours years ago. The noise level was surprisingly tend to be loud....
Service and food were outstanding. Staff are friendly.
The food was very good and creative. A delight. However, the service does not do justice to the Michelin rating or the chef. Wait staff did not describe dishes very well, did not fill water or offer more bread without being asked. They were efficient but not particularly warm. We have eaten at several Michelin rated restaurants and, except for the Plumed Horse, have always been 100 % impressed with the service.
Wow! Our first experience at a Michelin rated restaurant, and they truly did not disappoint. The service, food and atmosphere was astounding. Very pricey, but worth the experience. We certainly couldn’t afford to frequent this restaurant but it was our 35th wedding anniversary and we were celebrating in California. The Plumed Horse delivered well beyond our expectations!
Very nice restaurant with great food. Why I'm not rating higher is that we've been to other Michelin star restaurants (or restaurants that didn't have any stars) and compared to those, the food here was quite simple; not bad, but not absolutely amazing either. It is reasonably priced, though.
This restaurant has been totally transformed from the former Plumed Horse. The bar is beautiful. The restaurant is elegant and the food is superb. Chef Peter Armellino is one of the best chefs in the Bay Area. He has created a menu that is incredible. I highly recommend the parmesan souffle...oh my !!
Phenomenal food and attentive wait staff. A new favorite spot for celebrating.
Beyond expectations such a lovely evening and a great experience
Fabulous food and service as always. Truly exceptional
Mother's day brunch and got stuck at a table in the "kiddie" section - a number of families with somewhat out-of-control small children in a separate room from the main dining area. The noise level was very high which took away from the experience. Had to send two orders of Eggs Benedict back, but there were no complaints from the wait staff on our requests. The service was excellent and the food (except as noted above) was great. Have always enjoyed the Plumed Horse, but may consider other Mother's Day options in the future.
This place never fails to deliver!
