    The food was interesting and not the usual brunch fare. We had a great arctic char that was flavorful and a well seasoned beet sald. The home made donuts and ice cream were a wonderful addition to a delicious and lesurely lunch

    We have been lucky enough to have been there twice in the last two weeks. The staff make you feel not only welcome, but like they've known you for years. Everything that comet of the kitchen was fun and delicious. The room feels cozy and warm. All four us on both nights were thrilled with the evening. To get it this right on all levels is not easy to do. So well done. we will see you soon.

    We went to Plates on a Wednesday night when it's BYOB. Had the early bird mid week special, any 2 courses for $30. The waiter was accommodating and let us order the fish special because we could not eat the fish on the regular menu.. Each course was yummy and nicely presented. We asked to have the courses staggered, the kitchen's timing was perfect. We had the tuna tartar, excellent, with a guacamole that was crunchy and not your run of the mill guacamole. Next we had the Truffled Pasta dish, again, superb. We finished with the sea bass special. The fish was cooked to perfection, crispy skin with moist fish. All the vegetables served with the fish were done perfectly and added to the dish. Great meal for a great price.

    We were three, and had raw oyster, pappardelle, duck, trout, and fried chicken dishes. Each of us was extremely happy with our dish. We also split the apple cobbler dessert. (We also shared bites.) We stayed three hours and were in heaven! The food was imaginative and delicious. The service was attentive, helpful, and not intrusive.

    As the only diners on a recent visit, we were disappointed to be seated at a table with no windows and very little room to move in and out of our chairs. It seemed like an odd choice yet, since our son was in charge of the evening, neither of the adults chose to intervene to say anything and the hosts language and tone as we were seated were brusque, at best. This is really unusual for what is a marvellous restaurant. The food was very good although the BBQ plate presentation was really not appetizing and, again, out of character for PLATES. I suspect that it was just an off day and hope that our next visit could be more in keeping with the standard PLATES has held for the past 10 years.

    I have now been to Plates twice. Both times, I very much enjoyed myself. However, be aware that it is a fairly pricey restaurant. (Even the burgers are $18-$20). The service is good, the ambiance is terrific, and the wine was great as well. The only glitches were that a salad ordered with dressing on the side was delivered with dressing already on the salad, and a burger ordered medium showed up medium-rare. Other than that, a great restaurant!

    Plates has a small menu so it can be difficult to find dishes to order. The waitress was loud and intrusive; she should lower her voice and give diners room to breathe, given the small size of the restaurant My salad was mediocre. My salmon was dry and tasteless, lacking in texture because of the pureed sides. I was looking forward to the wonderful steak ordered on a previous occasion, but sadly that dish is off the menu. It was also cold even though I was wearing a jacket.

    we hadn't been back to plates since it first open (not for any specific reason- just didn't think about it. i do remember that when i went then, it was extremely noisy), and we had a delicious meal with great service. the restaurant wasn't crowded on this particular evening. only suggestion i have is I like to order 2 apps for dinner, especially in the summer, and there wasn't a great choice of apps for me. the salad i had (i think beet and feta cheese) was delicious and very ample, but there was no other app on the menu that i wanted to order. would definitely go back.

    As always Plates was a most pleasurable dining experience. The food is excellent for its tasty and interesting presentation. It is always fresh and up to the minute with local ingredients. The tuna tartar, scallops and ice cream cake cannot be beat. There is no finer place for a local yet sophisticated and outstanding dinner in a relaxed atmosphere.

    Friendly and welcoming ambience. Feels like a neighborhood place. Tuna tartare starter was delicious as was the pork chop entrée, but the risotto that came with it was too oily. My wife's meal was similarly patchy. The service was only fair. Our waiter seemed to completely forget about us early on. We will give it another shot but, at the prices on the menu, our expectations are much higher. The jury is still out.

    We had a lovely Sunday dinner. The staff was very professional and helpful. We loved the local, organic, farm to table-inspired menu. Everything was fresh and vibrant. The ambience is cozy and quaint. One of us had their duck special that was exquisite and two of us shared a fresh fusilli pasta with meatballs--that was amazing! The kitchen was kind enough to serve the pasta to us already split into two portions. For dessert, we had a special cake donut that was mouth watering. Also nice wine list. Not too crazy expensive. This was our third visit. We definitely plan on returning! There is additional parking across the street in a lot.

    This was my 2nd visit to Plates. I absolutely LOVE the food, ambience and location. Unfortunately, the waiter we had this time should not have been a waiter at all. He'd be better suited as the car valet. He went missing for long stretches of time quite often. We had to continue asking other waiters to assist us. He was a man of FEW words!!

    We had oyster appetizers, duck and scallop dishes. The way vegetables are used is always an imaginative and good feature at Plates, as is everything else. My only complaint is the desserts, which never seem appealing enough to order, since I have no particular warm feelings for Oreo cookies or Twinkies or even caramel. I understand that the chef does his own original interpretation of American junk food and sugar dishes like the doughnuts or the "Larchmonster," and I'm grateful to skip the calories, but I wish there were a few interesting choices.

    Three of us had dinner on Mothers day. Mom had the scallops & loved them. Dad & son had the BBQ. BBQ flavor was diasapointing. Perhaps the most bland BBQ either of us ever had. The ribs at least had a good smokey tase, but even they could have used more spice. I also had a chilled asparagus soup, which was excellent.
