After reading reviews of this restaurant and hearing some great things, a coworker and I ventured to The Grey Plume this week for happy hour and were hoping for dinner to follow. After little attention from the bartender, a strange complimentary starter, and 2 bland appetizers.... we ventured elesewhere.
I am sad to report that The Grey Plume was just too flavorless and the service was too with spotty service in an empty restaurant. And the constant hovering of staff to see the expressions on your face as you try to enjoy your meal was very uncomfortable, not to mention the "Is it fabulous, ladies?" type comments when we entirely unimpressed.
I watched one of our appetizers ready to serve as it sat idle, getting cold in the kitchen while we were the only patrons in the bar and only one onther dining table was occupied. Finally I just had to ask that they bring it out.
A doughnut in duckfat tasted no more interesting than a doughnut from Krispy Kreme. A strange gnocchi appetizer (strange in that it was presented like an entree as 5-6 pieces over a puree).The result was a very bland cheese stuffed pasta over something similar to the flavor and texture of baby food.
I am sad to say it was just too bland for me and the service was pretty lack-luster as well.
