ReviewGreat dining experience! Will definately go back again.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFood wonderfully prepared!The food at PLaE was excellent..wine list not extensive but nice selection in all price ranges. The bread was different but very good. My shrimp over jasmine rice was wonderfully yummy with a nice Asian flare. Portions were plentiful..unable to finish but gave it my all.. A great experience and would recommend highly!!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMNever disappoints!Excellent food, setting, and service.
Wife loved the whole fish, red snapper. I gambled on the chef's surprise that ended up being a huge portion of, fall off the bone, pork osso bucco.
We will return again, and again.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMDeliciousMy husband and I loved eating at P.L.A.E. We has the tuna tar tar appetizer, filet and grouper special for dinner and the Italian cake for dessert. Everything was scrumptious. Our service was perfect too. We really enjoyed ourselves and will be coming back for another date night in the future. We would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone who is wanting a relaxing, quality meal. We felt that the prices were fair for the quality of food and service that we received. Our bill was around $100, which included drinks, appetizer, meals and dessert.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMUnassuming....We were in town for a conference and found this on OpenTable. Coincidently, the cab driver said it was one of his favorites and to definitely try the "Chef's Special". The special was fabulous and is always a secret until it shows up at your table. They will only say if it is sea, land or air. What a great way to step out of the same old typical menu items! Although, I would not say their menu is typical. They have a nice variety of well prepared entrees.
We ended up eating there twice and both times the service was fabulous and the food awesome. I would highly recommend this to locals and travelers alike!5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMMuch better than expectedHaving dined at other restaurants at the Amelia Island Plantation, I was a bit reticent when out of town guests asked to go to PLaE. To my surprise, the food was MUCH better than the other restaurants on the Plantation. Both my wife and I had a salad and the fish of the day. They were really quite good. THe wine selection was good enough, and the prices were not unreasonable as can sometimes be the case at the Plantation. The service was exceptional. Our guests brought two children (3 yrs and 6 mos) which can turn into a dining disaster. The staff was really great dealing with the kids while still doing all the things that needed to get done. The venue is really nicely done and because we went early, it was really quiet.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderfulEveryone at PLAE was very accommodating and gave us great service. The food is excellent!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMPLEasantly surprisedthe restaurant is unassuming, but the meal was really good. we had a table of seven and one of us raved about the food. i myself had the chef's surprise. it turned out to be a couple of beef medallions, two blacken seared scallops, and shrimp scampi. the sides included blue cheese mashed potatoes, perfectly cooked spears of asparagus and topped with a few of the best onion rings that i think i've ever had.
only cons were inappropriately named salads - the tomato party and beet salads offered more greens than the main ingredient namesake.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat evening!Should have chosen this restaurant first! Great service - exciting food menu with appropriate portion sizes. Some of the best mussels I have ever had.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent! Excellent!

Our server, Courtney, knew her menu ingredients and how everything prepared and made helpful recommendations on menu items and wine. The entire staff put us at ease about having small children and we look forward to a return visit. Love that they are an independently owned restaurant and not part of the resort.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWe annually travel to AmeliaWe annually travel to Amelia Island and had never tried PLaE but absolutely love the Omni Plantation (especially after the extensive 18 month renovation of the hotel).

Eclectic menu. Great location.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyed this restaurant whileEnjoyed this restaurant while visiting Amelia Iland Plantation. Food was very good, on the whole. However, we didn't get bread until we were almost finished eating, and it wasn't the best foccacio I have had. Booths were a little snug for four people. We had lunch at Brett's in Fernandina Beach (same ownership) and enjoyed that more.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThis meal was for valentine'sThis meal was for valentine's day and was exquisite.

What a special evening.2/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a truly outstandingThis is a truly outstanding restaurant! I had a specially prepared grouper with red curry and vegetables. My wife had oysters prepared 2 ways. We shared a remarkable beet salad and butternut squash soup with flash fried beets on top. The food was fresh, beautifully presented and prepared as well as innovative. Every bit was a delight. We will definitely return to this new find in our new home town.2/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
