Diner Reviews
  • "A couple of co-workers and I had heard good things about Plank and wanted to check it out. Our server was lovely, friendly, attentive, easy to talk to. The bartender was equally attentive. We ordered drinks - mine was the negroni. Another person in our party ordered the apply manhattan. Neither of us enjoyed our drinks...they were heavy on the ice which as it melted turned the drinks into bitterly flavoured water. No complaints about the food. Appetizers, pizza's and desserts were very nice. We were enjoying our experience at Plank until the end when the owner approached us and said he needed the table. Granted we were there for about 3 hours, but to be booted out by the owner was extremely disappointing. That was a dealbreaker for us."

  • "Great vibe and service. Great place for drinks. Very weak in terms of food, especially for vegetarians. Would probably go back for drinks but not food."

  • "Its been a long time since I've had this level of fantastic service and unbelievable food. This place is a gem, with incredible atmosphere, prompt service, delicious, fresh innovative menu items and an extensive bourbon menu!!! This spot is one of a kind and impressed me far beyond any place I've been in TO (where I live). And the best part? When I looked at the bill, it was so affordable i just couldn't believe it. An absolute must to go and make it your regular dining/drinking spot."

  • "My wife and I have been to Plank many times before. On this occasion we invited some friends to brunch. They had never been to Plank and wanted to try it out for a while. The food was amazingly fresh and well prepared. The dishes are always well presented and the tastes are wonderful. We had a great time!"

  • "Great tapas-style restaurant. Interesting food, great energy, and amazing service! Love the environment. Calamari was some of the best I've ever had. Enjoyed some oysters, some shrimp/chorizo combo, and some fish tacos (very fresh). Will definitely be back!"

  • "My husband and I tried it first for dinner on a Saturday in December and were very impressed with the food the service and the price. Since then we have been back twice ...once with our daughter and once with friends to celebrate a birthday. It has been consistently delicious!"

  • "I invited my cousin to come with me to try The Plank and she enjoyed it a lot. Service was great as always, some of my fave things removed from the menu, but overall great night. The tables are a litle too close together to be comfortable, but that was the only minor complaint."

  • "Been to the Plank multiple times. Love it there. Great service. Staff always cheery.Tried many different menu items and they all have been great.Went with a friend who had never been there before. She just loved it and will be bringing her husband back for a date soon. Great atmosphere, busy and lots of fun. The Boar Ragu with gluten free penne was exceptional. Of course, I will be back again with friends."

  • "I had been to this place before but not for some time since I do not live close by. I was reminded of how I enjoyed the great ambience, friendly service and most interesting menu. It is clearly a hit because the restaurant was quite full through the noon hour. I am currently on a low carb diet to try and lose some festive girth and our server very patiently worked with me to find some choices that would work. My friend lives in this neighbourhood and had not been before. She mentioned more than once that she will definitely make it a point to come back. Clearly impressed. I will bring other friends here again soon."

  • "I ate here with my girlfriend on Saturday after hearing fantastic things about it from others and it was well worth it. We made a reservation for 9:15 but were actually seated earlier and had a drink at the bar before getting out table. First impression, the decor is outstanding. I love the rustic, old school look and Plank nailed it. We had the macaroni and cheese sticks with the truffle sauce; one of the best things I've ever eaten. Then we had the lobster poutine, I don't usually eat poutine but I loved this, great texture, the sliders had the best bourbon bbq sauce ever and we had the cobb wrap which was amazing. The service was very friendly and helpful. I would dine here every day if I could."

  • "Love a restaurant that has a "tight" menu? I believe the quality of food declines with the # of offerings. Plank has a simple yet thorough food base. Very rich in flavours. We stayed in the Tapas section, eating 4 plates for two of us. It was so filling we could not have dessert! Fantastic bourbon menu. You must try the lobster poutine! The place is small, and it was a little loud. I don't mind this - but older patrons may not. Food came out FAST and it was HOT. Ask for a seat along the bar so you can watch the showmanship of the Chef's. It's better than a movie!"

  • "Plank has become a local favorite for our family. From a quick drink to a birthday celebration, we always enjoy going to Plank for a visit. The food and service is always good! While it could ruin the atmosphere of the place, our only big wish is that the restaurant foot print was a bit bigger."

  • "Plank has a great atmosphere. People on dates, families with kids, friends meeting up, people hanging at the bar... It's a relaxed atmosphere and the staff are so friendly but it also feels special. The good is amazing and the tapas theme with the American twist is genius! Love it!"

  • "we really enjoyed our dinner at Plank. My spouse and I went there for an anniversary dinner and we order several dishes. Everything was fabulous. The fish tacos and Shrimp Chorizo Volcano were to die for! The pizzas were delicious! Our server was great - she was very accommodating and cheerful. We look forward to going back again!"

  • "I brought three clients here for lunch. I ordered the margaritaville pizza and it arrived late and was soupy wet mess in the middle. The server looked embarrassed to deliver it to the table. It came 5 mins after everyone else's meal. Two of my guests ordered the same meal, salad with bacon and blue cheese. The salads looked completely different and one came out without the bacon. The bacon was delivered on a separate plate after my late soppy pizza, so about 7 mins into the meal. The music was too loud we could not properly have a conversation. There was a table beside us with two men who were yelling across our talbe to the bartender. This was not a nice atmosphere at all especially for a business lunch."

  • "My wife and I went for a much needed night out with the grandparents watching the kids. We picked Plank because we heard great things and it did not disappoint. The waitress was very helpful and knowledgable of the menu. The food we ordered was spectacular and the bourbon list was perfect. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone!"

  • "Through a search on Open Table I found Plank. After reviewing the innovative tapas style menu and the photo gallery of the space I decided to book this past Friday. The experience was fabulous and would highly recommend a visit - or two - or three! The restaurant was already in an energetic mode when we arrived at 5:30pm - clearly a favourite spot for many! Friendly service, fun, tasty and playful dishes, reasonable menu pricing = a definite neighbourhood gem!"

  • "A neighbourhood watering hole in a scenic area with a casual charm. Advertised as a Tapas bar, the food was adequate and not entirely consistent with the theme. The noise level made conversation difficult. Standard drink options. Something different."
    Dined on 11/20/2013
  • "I took my brother who is not from Oakville, to the Plank and met our sisters there, and everyone loved it. We ordered a couple of appetizers that we shared along with a main course. Service was great, food wonderful, the only issue mentioned was the noise level, even though we were in the far corner, it was difficult to hear at times and the restaurant was not overly busy. But overall dinner was a huge success!"

  • "Had dinner at the Plank Restobar on Friday Night. You definitely need a reservation whenever you go here - but Friday night was frantic! Got a small table at the front of the restaurant beside 3 "very LOUD" people so we asked to move to the Bar. Food is awesome here and the service is excellent!"

Service just as good What can I say,,oh yeah..great rare bourbons too I had two (BUFFALO TWIST- try it)..and each table with unique bourbon bottles for water - total class act - all for well under $100 for two...amazing..bravo PLANK!"
