The Pluckemin Inn
Excellent food and service. It has been a few years, but we will be back sooner.
We had a great evening at Pluckemin Inn last night! First of all our server, Alexandra, was fantastic. My wife loved the risotto and then salmon. I had oysters, then the NY Strip. The steak was one of the most flavorful I’ve ever had. We finished off with a delicious chocolate dessert. A fantastic evening of service, food and ambiance!
Outstanding in all respects; from the butternut squash soup to the salmon (prepared at a perfect medium-rare), the food was up to the high standards of previous visits. The wine cellar is staggering and I found a bottle of an excellent French Cabernet Franc to enjoy with the meal.
The food was not as good as previous experiences. Was very disappointed.
Service was good, but not particularly fantastic.
Love the atmosphere.
The hostess at the front desk was particularly helpful and very pleasant since I was wearing a boot.
Gloria provided excellent service to us. The food was great and the private room was perfect! Had a wonderful time!
Perfect food and service- a real treat for an anniversary!!!
Great place for a romantic dinner. The appetizers and dessert drinks are especially tasty, but the main entrees are not far behind. We love the fireplaces scattered throughout the bar and dining room.
As always this place far exceeded our dining expectations. One of our favorites
Excellent service, atmosphere, food
The service is impeccable and friendly. The food is a level above most other restaurants but not much more in price. Definitely a must-go-to.
From the attentive but not obtrusive service to our beautiful fireside table everything was perfect. Our food was prepared exactly as we requested. It was nice to be able to engage in conversation with our dining companions and not have to shout over loud music or restaurant din. We were never hurried but were also not left to languish waiting for a drink or our meals. Truly a wonderful dining experience.
Always my “go to” when I’m in the area either with friends or to entertain clients.
My husband and I dined there prior to celebrate and connect before our IVF transfer for our second baby. It was only 3 miles away from RMA in basking ridge.
Very cozy place with nice food, drinks and service
Reliably lovely in all respects: food, wine, service, and ambiance. Combined in a way to make for a very enjoyable evening.
Always a pleasant experience. Wine list is the big winner. Wish the menu changed a bit more regularly. Ready for some new entrees and desserts.
Specials were quite good.
Peaceful, exceptional service and food. A favorite for any reason.
It was yummy and we had a great time. Great ambivance
Fish was done to perfection. Venison was that game. Service was friendly but not on top of us. Veal chop was too soft - sous vide is not appropriate.
Great birthday dinner for my wife tonight. Service was wonderful and the food was delicious.
Love The Pluckemin Inn - food has never disappointed us and neither has the service. Highly recommend this restaurant.
Always fresh and expertly prepared dishes make for a great business lunch. Take the tavern seating for a more casual conversation.
Please guys, taste some gluten free breads/pastas and have them available for us. For heavens' sake, purchase the America's Test Kitchen "The How can it be Gluten Free Cookbook" and read it -- you are foodies aren't you? The book will give you wonderful ratings on ALL the gluten free products, and there is a GREAT recipe there to make your own GF flour. C'mon guys, you're one of the elite restaurants in NJ ... you gotta keep up with the times. We're counting on you. Make an area for a 'test kitchen' and test these out. I'll be back soon to see you.
Beautiful restaurant with excellent service, great food and a nice place for a quiet dinner, where you can actually hear the other person without shouting.
Our daughter is home for midterm break from university
Delicious but over priced. For two people, we ordered two soups and two pieces of salmon over salad and bill was over $100. No cocktails only tap water to drink. Over 50 a head for lunch seems high but it was excellent
We heard a lot of good things about Pluckemin Inn and we were not disappointed. Very nice place, good food and great service.
This was the third time we visited the Pluckemin Inn. It is an excellent restaurant. Furthermore, the Inn has consistently put this excellence on display upon each of our visits. The wine list is extensive and extraordinary and adding a short list of 200 more approachable wines by the bottle is a great idea for parties not made up of sommeliers that can fully appreciate spending more for an exceptional vintage. They also offer several very good wines by the glass to aid pairing with different courses.
The "New American" food offering reflects the unpretentious culinary capabilities of the Kitchen. While the number of selections for each course (starters, salads, mains) is not exceptionally large, nor are there any choices put forth that will wow diners as uniquely "signature" to this establishment (except perhaps the Grigstown Chicken), there are adequate representations for most in each food category (meat, fish etc.). This minor grouse is more than offset by how they did what they did - which is very first rate indeed. Several in our party opted to try the evenings menu additions which were delicious and added further excitement.
One of my top 3
The service was far too slow. The good was great and the server was helpful
It was an outstanding meal. Both courses were perfectly prepared and up to the high standards that I enjoy dining, here.
I’ve never been disappointed going to the Pluckemin Inn.
This was my first time at the Inn and it was a lovely dinner and excellent service.
Took my wife for our 22nd anniversary with high expectations, and they were met all the way. The food was fantastic and the wine selection was beyond extensive and a great value based on a Friday night 50% off wine that we were not even aware of. The ambiance is very elegant, but relaxed and not stuffy, and the service was exceptional. We will definitely be back!
Great atmosphere and incredible service. The food was also quite nicely done.
Lovely restaurant with wonderful food and excellent wine selection. Service was attentive and courteous.
Appreciated that dress is casual and that there is enough room between tables for more or less private conversation.
Look forward to returning in the future.
My partner heard how wonderful Pluckemin Inn is and chose to have her birthday dinner there. We were very happy with the choice!
Food and pairings for the tomato tasting were exceptional. We look forward to future special dinners.
Great dinner. The octopus app was perfectly cooked and the basil risotto was flavorful.
