    I had been meaning to trry Plates for years and my wife and I finally did last weekend. I always loved the intimacy of this restauranr even when it was carl's years ago. I was glad to see that it still held it's charm. Food was excellent! Wines were great and service was spot on. Going back this coming weekend.

    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.

    After a number of modestly pleasant experiences with this restaurant, my last was a disappointment. Service was slow. Numerous requests were made for simple items. Most importantly, I ordered a pasta dish which would normally call for parmesan cheese. The order was taken and the item delivered. When cheese was requested, the server advised that there was no cheese because a delivery had not arrived. No attempt was made to adjust the bill.

    This was our second visit to Plates and it was not as memorable as the first. Part of that was my entree selection, I think. On my first visit I had skate with collard greens. Both were incredible with the collards being the best I ever had outside the South. This time I had the fried chicken. It was very good, but did not compare to the skate.

    All facets of the restaurant are run as well as anything in the greater metropolitan NY area. The blend of service and food is consistent from when you walk in, until you're wished good night when departing. While for me it's truly a local gem; it's worthy of being a destination restaurant should you not live in the greater Larchmont area!

    We went for the sunday night "bottomless bbq" special. The pulled pork was cold and greasy. Ribs and brisket were too smoky for our taste. Nice large portion size for the first plate out but there was a puddle of grease on the plate. The slaw and beans were excellent. Asked for some bbq sauce on the side. The sauce was like a tangy, thin ketchup. Service was quite good though. The dining room is small and tight as expected. Our kids were welcome. The bar looked nice. I wouldn't recommend the bbq. We might go back to try the regular menu but we're not in a hurry to do that.
