    I had brunch at Plates twice previously. Menu looked good and all other places I wanted were full. Firstly, food was great. I had the oysters, lamb chops, and death by chocolate cake. My date had corn chowder, crab cakes and cheesecake. Secondly, the aitress was very nice. She apologized profusely for the slowness and even gave me a free glass of wine. It took over an hour to get the meal and then appetizer and entree came together so quickly that one had no time to relax between servings. It was not busy. I would go back since the food was great, but I won't return if the service remains slow.

    Christian was our phenomenal waiter who made excellent suggestions. No one in our party was disappointed with any of his recommendations. The food was excellent and the service was even better. We will definitely return!

    If you are looking for dinner before the show at Center Stage, Plates is perfect. The food is great and the restaurant is inexpensive, quick, and nearby. We had smoked salmon flatbread, shrimp cakes and the salad with eggplant. All fantastic.

    Driving around the block twice, not realizing they shared an entrance with a "gym", my first thought was oh no! What are we in for? But we were pleasantly surprised. They did the best they could for the ambiance...it is after all one big room, if I had any suggestions at all, have someone with funky penmanship to adorn the blackboard wall. It could be done with color and made to look really cool. The food was good- we ordered only a traditional breakfast , but they had a few items (waffles) that sounded really interesting. (Too many "points" for me right lol) But there was plenty of other things I would order on my return. The best part of our brunch was the service. Our server couldn't have been more pleasant or professional. Try it...

  • The only thing I didn't love

    Dined on 12/5/2013
    The only thing I didn't love about this restaurant was the location - attached to the athletic club! It was cute and delicious but walking through the gym lobby took away from that "out for dinner" feeling. The food and nightly specials make up for it though, and we will definitely be back!

    We got the shrimp cakes which were really very good. The service was friendly but lacking somewhat in the attentive category. The server looked up from behind the bar when we arrived but continued with what she was doing vs. greeting us. My entree was served before my salad. When I asked about it it took another 7-8 minutes before it was served. Since we were the ONLY patrons there the service should have been better. But it was 1/2 price nite for wine and we weren't in a hurry so I could be tolerant! It was within walking distance to Center Stage so that was a plus. I would give it another try.
