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...

My husband and I had REALLY enjoyed the Plumed Horse a few years back so we decided to go there again for a birthday present to each other. Hubby had the tasting menu + wine pairings and I had the Rib eye, but still got to taste everything he got. Good thing because my entree didn't show up til the... More

What a special place. We went last night night for my wife's birthday and experienced one of the finest dining experiences we have ever enjoyed. Wonderful service from Joseph and all the other staff. Food was perfect! We really loved the new decor and set up. Expensive but well worth it for that very special event. We will be back... More

The service is attentive without being intrusive. The atmosphere is very nice. The wines are excellent; though in the wine pairing with the tasting menu, they do not match the foods well. The food is beautifully presented. In the tasting menu, the souffle is probably going to be the best thing I will eat this year. The lamb was much... More

Was out with a group and a senior manager and myself were not thrilled with the group setting and food, so on the way back to our hotel I suggested The Plumed Horse. I had been here once before but this was even better than I had remembered. We shared a half-bottle of Pinot from the amazing 18,000 bottle selection... More

I was in the area on business and made a point of coming to this local Michelin-rated restaurant. The actual restaurant itself is very very nice. Modern, clean, all that good stuff. The staff was superb and attentive to every detail. I had the tasting menu and was not disappointed - excellence. Wine selection was also outstanding. I came away... More

Since it was a special occasion, we went ahead and did the tasting menu with the wine pairings. The food was fantastic of course. We enjoyed every course. They even brought out a few extra courses- there was the amuse of course but then an extra shaved salad not listed. This was paired with a beautiful Katherine Kennedy sparkling. At... More

Went here for my wife's birthday, so we pushed the boat out and did the full tasting menu with wine pairings. Everything was delicious and super high quality. We had previously eaten at Gordon Ramsey's place at the London in New York, and this quality was a match for Ramsey. Service was discrete and attentive and we discovered a couple... More
