Adventurous menu for a hotel
Adventurous menu for a hotel restaurant. It was unusually load the night we went as there was a group gathering in the bar area. We asked to be seated away from the noise and the service and food was great as usual (although I wouldn't recommend the mussels - too small and not very tasty.)

Excellent Customer Service
The food was very good except for one dish. The server was so nice and offered another dish, but I didn't want anything else. She told the manager who came over and was also so sweet and took off the price of that dish. This was excellent customer service.

Plate and Vine
Loved everything about this restaurant! First time here for Mother's Day dinner and we had the most enjoyable evening! The food was all fresh and delicious! The servers were all knowledgeable and pleasant. And ambience was just perfect!
Made everything special for the occassion. Would definitely dine here again!

One of Concord's best
An excellent restaurant located in the Concord Hilton hotel. The ambience is rustic, but upscale and refined. Service was great with our server, Matthew, who was competent, attentive, and friendly. I would describe the menu as contemporary California and the food is all locally sourced with the origination of the each item is noted on the menu. Everything we had was excellent, but the Dungeness crab macaroni and cheese was spectacular. We also tried the pancetta wrapped roasted shrimp, the organic Arborio risotto and the applewood smoked local sturgeon. All are great choices. There is a great cocktail list divided into classics and current creations. The wine list is also very good. Prices are reasonable.

What a surprise!
I've heard about this place, but was hesitant because it's inside a hotel. But, it was delicious! I had a honey herb vinagrette in my salad that was so amazing I'm going to try to copy it at home.

A nice spot out in Concord!
Food was solidly good. Some portions quite small for the taste--and for the price. Apparently, they've heard this complaint before but as yet have not done anything about it. Gracious service, nice ambiance and live music. Best...it's open and serves until 10pm.

It sounds a little strange going to a restaurant located in a hotel, but plate and vine is great. Yummy drinks, tasty food, & great service!

I'm not usually a fan of hotel dining but this experience could possibly make me a convert. I had the spinach salad and the dungeness crab macaroni & cheese; both were delicious!!! They've updated the look of the restaurant and are using only fresh local ingredients. Before you turn your nose up to another hotel restaurant, consider trying this one!

We had our family dinner here last week, party of 7, and they accomodated us where we were apart from other guests. It made us very comfortable to have a good time, enjoy the food, our outstanding waiter. I rated the service a 4 only based on the poor service support from the bartender. Serve was quite slow here. We all had a wonderful time and would go back again. I rated the lunch as I have been here for lunch too.

Extremely elegant and delicious!
The food was wonderful from the Spinach Salad with a light sprinkling of Feta cheese dressed with a hint of honey dressing, the Salmon's flavorful crust brought the perfectly cooked Salmon to life to the Tiramisu with delicately soaked lady fingers which maintained its pillowy soft texture topped with cocoa powder and gently placed bits of chocolate all together melted in my mouth, a beautiful ending to a beautiful meal. We were very content and comfortable after the meal. The hostess and servers were also very attentive and accommodating to our needs. I would absolutely recommend Plate and Vine to anyone who really appreciates a five star restaurant experience. Excellent food and excellent service! Totally worth the price!

This is a great place for business lunches, and in the evenings for a nice dinner. Recently renovated, as well as new menu - food is very good, and service is good. Tony always takes great care of us for lunch!

Food is excellent not over priced. Service is Five Stars! Great wine list. Northern California Flare. We went on a Saturday Night and enjoyed the live music. Great dinner and entertainment for a Saturday night and you didn't have to travel over the Bridge to SF to have an enjoyable evening. Priceless! Thank you, Plate & Vine.

Great food and service!
I don't usually expect to find anything to rave about in a hotel restaurant, but this little gem in the Concord Hilton is certainly a treat. The food is fresh and whenever possible, locally sourced. Each dish is well prepared and presented. I had the Crab Mac and Cheese, which was made with a perfect blend of cheeses and plenty of crab. And the pasta tasted home made. A friend had prawns wrapped in prociutto. The shrimp was sweet and the prociutto crisp. The service was attentive, but not intrusive. And the prices are reasonable. I'll be back and I'll bring friends. I want to try their happy hour next.

Plate and Vine is definitely a huge upgrade from the previous restaurant in the Hilton. It was quite delicious and I would definitely go back. One of the best in Concord.

This is a promising spot to eat with a few adjustments needed. The booths are comfortable and the service was great. However, the music from the bar was too loud in the dining area. My cocktail was wonderful, but the selection of wines by the glass is too limited.

Delicious and inviting
Despite its location in a hotel, Plate and Vine did not imbue the "hotel restaurant" vibe. It was warm and friendly and had a nice decor. The menu items all looked good and items were generally sustainable and toted as locally sourced. We tried the cheese platter which was lovely. I had the salmon and my boyfriend had the pork belly. The pork belly was crisp and the addition of jalapeno slivers gave the dish a nice spice. The salmon was deliciously cooked and served over some smoked salmon, with tomatoes, roe and vegetable.
The drink menu was enticing and there were many options, including an extensive wine list and wine flights. Service was fine.
They are very social media friendly and there are some great offers through yelp & online.

Quite a surprise!!!
Never would have known about this place without a Travelzoo voucher but I am glad we discovered. The pizza was very good and we enjoyed the wine. Jordan provided the best service we have had in a restaurant in a very long time and we eat out weekly.She was AWESOME!!! Will be back for sure.

Good Business Lunch Spot
Nice restaurant for the Concord area. Very nice service and good food. I'll be back.
10/21/2013 5:00:00 PM
Had no idea the place existed until a travelzoo special told me about it. It's a nice setting, great food and service. They even validate valet parking for free for you. I wish the dessert menu had a heavy chocolate item ha! But that's the girl in me. Everything was delicious and there is live music every Saturday night. What's not to like? Definitely returning.

Gourmet Food in Concord
This is the kind of restaurant you'd expect in San Francisco, but it's in Concord. The prices are on the high side for the Concord area, but to be expected for locally sourced, largely organic types of food. I think you could get a somewhat better price deal on this type of food in Berkeley, for instance at Venus, if getting to Berkeley is not issue. You can purchase a $50 voucher for $40 on Yelp, which is of some help in defraying the cost.
The restaurant is at the Hilton hotel, but has been nicely remodelled to have an upscale look. It was a bit drafty for us, until we relocated to a booth seat.
There was pleasant live music.
The food was excellent.

Great Food - Pleasant Surprise
This restaurant is fantastic. If you hate chain restaurants like I do..... you'll have to check it out. It's really nice, tucked away, great food, personalized service, and reasonable prices. They have healthy organic and even some good vegetarian foods. The wood fire pizzas are delish too. Check it out!

Nothing like the average hotel restaurant. The food was excellent, the cocktails were great and the service was even better. Highly recommend it.
