For the basic review prerequisites, the Food was excellent and the service was great. My wife and I wanted to try something different and this fit in with my desire for Tapas style eating, and my wife's more traditional American cuisine pallet. We left satisfied and wanting more, we just didn't have any more room for good food.

This is just what Armory Square needed. A fun restaurant with fantastic food. Open 7 days a week. With a great Brunch menu
The new owners have paid attention to every detail when they renovated this huge space. It is open with wonderful furniture
A great mural behind the bar. The wait staff is attentive and energetic.

Fill up on small plates
Small Plates offers an extensive and varied menu. I went with a group that included a vegetarian and everyone found plenty of choices and enjoyed sampling. Five plates shared between four people was satisfying. The space is nice but can be very loud and not at all intimate. Still worth a try with a small group of people who like to share.

Hopping spot in downtown Syracuse
Four of us thoroughly enjoyed our recent dinner at Armory Square's newest dining establishment. The atmosphere was alive, which created a fun and lively experience. Service staff was attentive. The "small plates" offerings were varied and priced fairly. We were able to order five different items and share them all. The thick crusted pizza from their brick oven was very satisfying and tasty. The sliders were surprisingly delicious--go for the angus beef. The only item we would pass on were the chicken wings. Surprisingly, the lunch menu is the same, which makes it very pricey for a mid-day visit. But this same pricing at dinner provides for a very affordable visit.

This is a wonderful restaurant !! The food is so good !!! The ribs are the best !! Four different kinds of sliders !
The pizza's are Detroit style - we loved them !! The decor is so urban chic. We have been there several times and can't wait to go again !

Nice addition to downtown
The remodel of the space is fantastic--they opened it up and added lighting! The menu is extensive and everything is plated to share and comes out as it's ready--not in courses. This can be a bit confusing, but if your party is willing to share, it's fun! Our group loved the white pizza and the tiny veggie spring rolls! The fried green tomatoes were good, but not as good as Dinosaur's. We'll be back to try more!

Fun for Friends
This was a great place to go with your friends because you share your food.
Even though all the food we ordered tasted AMAZING, make sure you dont have very specific diet needs as most of this is not diet friendly.

Great food! Great service!
Great food! Great service! Our table was on old dance floor. The floor is slanted, leaving our table at an awkward angle. I would request NOT to sit here again if being sat there. Other than that a great night with friends!!

Good food, good fun!
Six of us went Saturday night, as it was recommended by one of the people with us. We had a riot. Each of us ordered 3 plates secretly from the others. We never knew what foods were going to come out next, so that made it fun and exciting. Our waitress, Laurel, was wonderful and played along with us and our antics. She gave awesome service.
Everything we tried was great. We loved the mini burgers, dragon shrimp, calamari, oh, and the pizzas! YUM! Really, out of 18 plates ordered, (I think we only ended up with 2 duplicates) there was not a thing to complain about.
We will definitely be going again. We will order other foods on the menu because we want to taste them all. Not just the favorites that we found the other night

Love, love, love Small Plates.
Love, love, love Small Plates. The food is fantastic and atmosphere fun and friendly. Music is great, too. Terrific wine list. Best new spot in Syracuse.

Re: fun, great food
Loved this place. Everything we ordered was really good and served hot the minute it was done. The service was really good.
My only complaint was that it all felt a little rushed. I would have preferred the food to be served at a slightly
More leisurely ace so we could have enjoyed it more. Overall it was a great place and we will definitely come back again.

I am such a picky eater so I stress when I order at restaurants because I am afraid I won't like what I ordered but here you can try a bunch of things and are always gauranteed to find something you like. We have done dinner and brunch and both were great.

Diverse, quality menu
A nice local restaurant, it's hard to find something on the menu that isn't delicious. The dining area is large, open, and attractive. The only problem is that the hardwood floors and brick walls make this restaurant noisy, and the blaring pop/top 40 music doesn't help.

Definitely worth a visit!
Love the concept; and the simplistic decor in this restaurant. All the "small plates" we tried were delicious! Our server wasn't the most attentive - but still friendly! Two people split 4 different small plates, and had two drinks each - and we were shocked when the bill came out! EXTREMELY reasonable!! Definitely will be coming back - This would be a great place for groups as there is a LOT of seating! It was really quiet when we went - but I imagine it can get busy and loud later in the evening!
