First of all, I am holding the plumed horse to a much higher standard than say "Mel's diner" or the corner pupuseria, because you go to the plumed horse with its michelin star specifically for a fine dining experience, not just calories to fill the gap. It is an occasion that you should actually dress up for, take the time... More

In 2014 I ate in the bar of the Plumed Horse several times. Twice with friends, we had a lovely time, with attentive service, and some good small bites. Crab cakes and oysters especially recommended. Then I stopped in by myself after working all afternoon on a Saturday -- just wanted a drink and appetizer. The bar server pretty much... More

The ambiance, wait staff, and food was all excellent. Great place for a special night out. One of the best meals ever and one of the most expensive! Totally worth it!

I've been here multiple times. Couple of times as part of a large group and then few other times with few friends. This place never disappoints. The service is top notch. The food is amazing. The chef is always trying to make sure that every order is complete with matching complimentary dishes. The souffle is to die for. The seafood... More

The Plumed Horse continues to exceed my expectations. It is truly one of the finest dining experiences in all of the West Coast. Service is impeccable. The atmosphere is elegant yet casual. The wine list is huge with great wines at reasonable prices. Ask for that special bottle you've been wanting to try. Even though it isn't on their iPad... More

My husband and I went here for a belated birthday dinner. This is a great place. The service is top notch. I had the Black pepper and Parmesan soufflé with uni and crab, and sea bass. The soufflé is to die for. This was one of the best dish I ever had. My husband had mushroom risotto with black truffle.... More

The options inside the tasting menu are not included in the price. They even charge you for the truffles if you say yes to have it sprinkled on your dish. I would rather they tell you first. I have never seen a tasting menu bill has so much additional charges on options. What a trick! I will not go back.

If price doesn't bother you, you will be dazzled with the incredibly fresh architecture, overwhelmingly beautiful wine vault, service and food. Plan on spending for extras like great champagne by the glass and over the top appetizers. You won't be disappointed.

We celebrated my husband's birthday at The Plumed Horse and it was a marvelous experience. We chose the tasting menu with the wine pairing. First the restaurant. The decor is understated with very clean lines. It's modern with light colored woods and white linens. We were seated immediately in a room with approx. 10 tables total. The restrooms were very...
