If you've been for lunch you have not been for dinner. The room is transformed as if set-dressers came in and created a romantic fantasy. Quiet, romantic, if it were up to me we would go at least once a week

The fine dining restaurant in the Jefferson hotel is worth the splurge for a special occasion. Intimate rooms with well spaced tables make for a quiet environment with easy conversation. Expert service contributes to the excellent atmosphere. And the food matches the setting.

aside from grotesque price/value being surreal, when choosing the most expensive winemenu, you expect a Sommelier to spend a little time explaining what he or she is pouring, we got 10 seconds of I really haven´t got time for you service, so eat somewhere else

Plume is a lovely, quiet sophisticated setting for a very good dinner. I think the prix fix and tasting menus are well priced for what you receive. However the wine pairings are way way overpriced, and so while we usually select the pairing with our...More

  • This restaurant is at The Jefferson, Washington DC
As the only Forbes Five Star rated restaurant in DC, Plume at The Jefferson, serves as a discreet and elegant backdrop to the artistry of our skilled culinary staff. Plume's classic dishes are inspired both by the gardens of Monticello and the refined palate of Thomas Jefferson. Dishes are expertly executed with lighter, contemporary finishing touches that appeal to today's enlightened palates. Accompanying Plume's innovative menu, the wine program features more than 1,300 labels with some dating back to 1720. Recipient of Wine Spectator's Best of Award of Excellence, we invite you to savor a bottle of the restaurant's more than 50 vintages, including some that Jefferson himself enjoyed in his time, as well as newer wines he might select were he alive today.
