Whether you want a 5+ star dining experience or just kick back in their amazing bar... The Michelin Star rated Plumed Horse is the place to go. If you're in the bar you must order the sliders. You won't believe your taste buds they're so delicious! In the restaurant order the nine-course $125 Chef's Tasting Menu or order á la... More

Great food great service and extensive wine list always had a great experience. The food is innovative. presentation is excellent. They are ready to accommodate food preferences even at the last moment. The chef always has a great menu planned. Wine selections are made easy by the sommelier or even the waiters as they help you choose.

Food was ok, service great. Overpriced for what it is. Manresa is much better value for money and quality.

We've eaten here in the past and the service and food have been exemplary. Today was a Valentines weekend tasting menu and no a la carte options. Some in our group were vegetarians -- they did have a menu sorted out but couldn't give us a printed version or explain what the choices were. Courses were being brought and no... More

My wife and I have been regulars at Plumed Horse since it reopened in 2008. Up till today we always enjoyed our visits and were impressed with both culinary selection as well as service. Unfortunately, we had a rude awakening when we visited Plumed Horse to celebrate Valentine’s Day this Sunday. Upon being seated, we noticed that with the exception... More

The food looked beautiful and was nicely (though somewhat pretentiously) served - but unfortunately, that's all it had going for it. The prices are outrageous considering the very small portions and the complete lack of taste in the food.

My husband and I recently celebrated an anniversary dinner with the chef's autumn tasting menu. Most dishes were perfect, with some better executed than others. (An excellent moist halibut dish with a thin "crispy" skin vs. the tad overly salted rabbit course) The highlight was definitely the supplemental dish - Black Pepper and Parmesan Souffle with uni and dungeness crab...

My wife and I have had the chef's tasting menu on two occasions. The second instance was on New Years Eve and the restaurant was a little busy, and the meal was not the same as the first (and best). I'd recommend going on a less-busy night and you will have the meal of your life! The first time was... More

We had a wonderful meal. Overall the food with the tasting menu was delicious. The veal was the weak link however. It was not comparable to the their other dishes. The service was excellent and all the servers were very friendly. My only complaint was that the "so called sommelier", not the wine director seemed to know nothing about the... More
