I loved the décor, solicitous wait staff (to the point of a little tiny upholstered stool for your purse) and relaxed pace of the dinner. The food was very good and the prix fixe was easy to choose from and not overly complicated like the...More

Had the tasting menu, and it was great! Wonderful wine list with "hidden gems" that have some good deals for great wines. Service was impeccable. Costs high but not inappropriate for the food, setting and service. Great for a special occasion.

As the recipient of one star from the prestigious Michelin Guide and the only Forbes five star rated restaurant in Washington, DC, Plume at The Jefferson hotel serves as a discreet and elegant backdrop to the artistry of our award-winning culinary team. Choose a cozy nook or a table by our inviting fireplace as you savor classic dishes crafted using traditional techniques and seasonal fine dining restaurant menus that are inspired by the harvest from Thomas Jefferson's kitchen gardens at Monticello. Plume's wine list spans more than a dozen nationalities and consists of over 1,300 labels, including the country's largest Madeira collection, currently offering one of last bottles of 1720 Madeira in the world. The wine selection consists of over 50 vintages, many of which we believe Jefferson would have enjoyed were he alive today, including a range of labels from his native Virginia.
