The Plumed Horse achieves a look of sophistication with a sleek and modern interior featuring a glass-encased, three story wine cellar housing 1,800 selections and over 20,0000 bottles. Michelin Star rated since its re-opening, Executive Chef/ Owner Peter Armellino has created a Contemporary California menu with a balance of meat and fish and a focus on elegant dining. His cuisine is showcased in both a la carte and tasting menus, including one made up of vegetables grown on our local “farm.” All the action in the kitchen can be viewed from the exclusive and private Chef’s table (due to its high demand the Chef’s table is not available to be booked online-please call for availability). Experience the best in service, décor, wine, and food at this Silicon Valley destination locale that Sunset magazine calls “the best splurge restaurant.”

This is by our favorite upscale, special occasion restaurant. Highly recommend for any special occasion. Food is amazing along with the service and ambiance.

Valentines Day was supposedly a special occasion. No flowers on table, not a single vase of a Rose for the ladies, no a mouse bouchée offering, servers did not take time explaining the dishes; one server was talking while trying to walk away; service in between meals took forever; we did not get ask if we wanted coffee or tea.

The Caucasian hostess needs some training on how to greet guests on the phone and in person. She wasn't speaking clearly and being unfriendly on the phone with me when I called to be arrived late. I am not sure if she was having a bad day since there was No smile from her for the entire evening when she greeted us and my boyfriend thought she was rude to me.

We highly recommend the tasting menu. You will not be disappointed. It is obvious why they have maintained a Michelin star since reopening. The food is amazing from taste to presentation. The service is outstanding. This is a wonderful restaurant for a memorable special occasion.

Birthday dinner for my husband. Manuel knows us and treats us like family. Love this place-it is very special!

Snacks are much better than their entrees. The pork is a little fishy but its fried skin is perfect.
Bread and chef's gift little hand food are awesome.

Overall it is a good experience. We tried the tasting menu. While other dishes were good and unique, the Scallop dish and the Blue Cheese were not up to what we would think a Michelin level restaurant would be. Scallop was really really salty. I thought it was the broth but it actually the scallop. Both mine and my wife's plates were salty. Wine pairing choice for the scallop was also not good. It didn't add any flavor to the dish. Perhaps the overly saltiness clashed with the wine flavor. The blue cheese dish was out of place, I am not sure why it was sandwiched between scallop and Wagyu beef. The flavor was so strong that turned the saltiness of the scallop to bitterness, and basically numbed my palate from enjoying the premium beef. Dessert was OK. The dish was very very busy with so many things on it, yet no one thing stood out so we can give credit to. I am sure if this meant to be a potpourri of desserts presentation?
If we come back, will have to be a single wine with a single dish attempt. Tasting menu didn't convince us to come back for more. Service was good, efficient, attentive but a bit cold. Again, at this level (for meal that cost almost as much as my first car after high school), we expect more...a personal and unique experience.

We visited there on a Saturday evening for our anniversary. Because of that, all the restaurant employees treated us in a manner that it was a meaningful event. Nice and professional servers, high quality and creative food on the menu, complimentary drinks and deserts, and special gift of wine to take home. Time and money well spent for a memorable dinner event.

We have been to the Plumed Horse three times. Every time we go, I am shocked at how horribly we are treated by the hostesses. I can’t decide if they are rude or intellectually challenged.
Once they brought us to the wine room and left us there. Just left us in the room with our guests.
Another time, they left us in the lounge and we had to remind them that we were we waiting and that we had arrived. Not to mention they are dressed like strippers. Very sad way to start a nice evening.

Good food but terrible value to price ratio. We chose the chef’s tasting menu and they offered a substitution for Foie Gras. In the end we noticed we were charged almost $100 extra for that change (on the top of the $158 per person for the chefs tasting menu). So all together with wine pairing for one came out to be ~$650

The Black Pepper Parmesan Soufflé was to die for. The best I’ve had hands down. The Tarragon Potato Gnocchi was delicious as well. The Suckling Pig and Japanese Wagyu were Phenomenal. Definitely competes with “The Sea” by Alexander’s.

We enjoyed a wonderful New Year Eve dinner. The menu was creative, with special ingredients and well balanced.
