"We gave the Plum one last shot and it will definitely be the last. Saturday night and only one other table filled that should have been a sign. The waitress was a sweetheart but definitely new at the job. Appetizers looked like they came out of a box and the steak was terrible. Complete 180 from when it first opened. I cant see myself going back."

"The service and ambiance were nice but the food was subpar. They should match the quality with their prices. The lobster slider was fishy and the rib eye didn't have much flavor. I thought the list of draft beers was odd abs charging $8 for a Guinness is nuts!"

"The bar is lovely, warm with comfortable seating. However, food is pretentious and very
over priced. Wait staff was good, but not great for the cost of the meal. I enjoy stopping in
for a drink before dinner elsewhere or after for a night cap.

"Great food, top notch service and a lively bar scene in an area desperately in need of one. Also hosts specialty events like movie night and local musical acts which make it so much more than just a great restaurant."

"When we arrived it was unclear where to go to meet the hostess, we were however promptly sat and someone grabbed our drink order. Both drink were not made very well including one of their signature cocktails, eponymously, the yellow plum. The atmosphere was a bit too casual and there were hoagies and other pub fare that seemed to don most of the diners plates. Which made me think this place could not be expected of more than a "nice" diner.
The food was ok, fresh but definitely not worth the price. We had individual salads, the Caesar dressing tasted like garlic mayonnaise, the beet salad was overdressed, but presented nice. Bother sliders were randomly brought out as an intermezzo, not much to be expected at $5 each.
Wine was a bit tinny and needed some time to breathe.
The mains were nothing to write home about.
Bottom line we could have gone to a byo next door for half the price and a much more delicious meal. Additionally, when comparing atmospheres there are much better options nearby via diners or American pub fare.
Best bet if you would like to try this place would be best to do so outside when the weather breaks, for lunch."

"Ordered drinks and an appetizer for the table. We got the appetizer before our drinks. The lemon chicken was tough and ordered a side of grilled spinach. Did not get it and when we asked said sorry so we cancelled it and they brought out creamed spinach about 10 minutes later and told them we didn't want creamed spinach. Forgot to take it off the bill the pasta was good but for what you got not worth it. the fish & chips was ok but the fries were soggy. The burger was ok but the tater tots seemed like they came out of a bag from shop rite. No need to go back again!!!!!!!! Not worth the price."

"Would definitely go back. Menu is a little hard to choose from I think they are trying to cover all bases. Only thing I would change is the "server" who after a table left sprayed it many times with some awful smelling chemical to clean. I appreciate the clean table but not while I'm trying to eat.
Little thing that could be changed easily.

"This is a wonderful place to go for a creative menu that is well executed, but that doesn't get carried away with itself. The waitstaff is always enthusiastic about providing great service. (Soon to be a legend, Matt, in particular, is very attentive and scary-good at remembering a patron and his/her food and cocktail preferences!) Elegant and casual atmosphere, welcoming staff, and satisfying food."
