GREAT FOOD GREAT STAFF
The food here is always gourmet quality , the service is polite, kind and pleasant.
We ordered from the pri fixe menu and the portions are the same size as regular menu. This was our third dinning experience there and as always we were completely satisfied and enjoyed our dinning experience . I will go back for more and more.

The Best for Seafood
This is the ultimate Southampton eatery for those looking for creative and delicious seafood cuisine. We have becoming here for over 12 years and the menu and food only gets better. No one knows seafood and wine parings like Doug. His staff also know you and take care of every need. Terrific and well worth all the accolades.

You could easily pass by the Plaza Grill but once you get inside you will be glad you came.
The chef is outstanding and the the service was excellent.

The food is wonderful and the staff very enthusiastic and knowledgable. The shrimp porcini risotto appetizer was incredible and the farfalle pasta with shrimp in a lobster sauce outstanding. We can also still taste the apple pecan cake. Definitely would go back

Stand-out Seafood and Wine
I have dined at TPC several times and each stands out for a memorable food and wine experience. Ask of the chef to recommend a wine. He knows the wine list by heart and will help you pair the perfect bottle with your food. Best of all, they're open all year and maintain their high standards in the off season, so you can get a table and a great meal without the crowds.

The risotto appetizer was so amazing we ordered an additional order for a side dish. I really enjoyed my bow-ties with shrimp and beautiful spring peas...so fresh! Hubby ordered the cod...delish! Will be back for their new Bar Menu...can't wait to try the fish tacos and veggie burger. :)

The Plaza Cafe is a Southampton staple. The Plaza Cafe specializes in seafood and does it very well. We enjoyed the atmosphere and the service was spot on. A wonderful place to be romantic with your special someone. Would definitely go back and visit again.
Desserts were delish!

Good place for nice family dinner
Went here on a quiet night with my parents. The food and service were good, the wine list good, and the fish fresh. Only complaint was that there was no salmon and their sushi chef was away, something they did not indicate online or on the phone when booking the table. Quiet and pretty venue.

Great seafood restaurant
We found the restaurant's atmosphere and service to be both outstanding, the service and the desserts to be truly excellent, however, there was nothing out of the ordinary in the appetizers and main dishes. You get something you would normally get at a pricey restaurant anywhere else in the state of New York. We would like to see something out of the ordinary in the menu that would make us come back.

The $34 price fix menu is an outstanding value. The monkfish was superb!

Love this restaurant! Chef
Love this restaurant! Chef Doug is extremely creative with his ingredients and everything is always fresh and delicious. Our server, Barry (Barrie?), is always attentive and is a shining star here. I always look forward to seeing her. Now on to the meal: I started with the oysters, which are topped with a dollop of creme fraiche and American caviar---a real taste treat for your mouth! I had a special of macadamia encrusted mahi mahi over a bed of mashed plantains and bits of chorizo sausage, with a drizzle of chorizo oil around. The fish was so fresh and the combination of flavors was so unique and wonderful. I ended the meal with a fabulous creme brulee and cappucino---a perfect ending to a perfect dinner.

Although a little pricey, this is a good restaurant. The service and food were very good. They don't advertise a children's menu, but they have one, so good to know since the menu is not one most children would find appealing.

Quiet early, then noisy
We sat down at 6:00 pm and all was well, but with the wood,floors and ceiling, when people filled the place it was quite noisy. Otherwise we were very pleased with the meal, all,fourmof,us, and the service. We will go back.

Excellent but not pretentious
A wonderful place with great fish and seafood.. Expensive but worth every penny. It would be in my top three in the Hamptons and best on the South Fork..

Best Kept Secrets in the Hamptons
Amazing food... Always surprised The Plaza Cafe isn't more popular and filled with the Maserati-driving, black-card-using folks who hope to dine with a celebrity and enjoy eating with other Hedge Fund Managers wearing Panerais and toting their b-list model girlfriends. But the great thing is that these folks aren't really seen here, which is a blessing. Its all about the food here and the calm civilized atmosphere. All the food is GREAT here. I love the seafood caserole / Shephards pie. The desserts are stunning too.

Expensive but really good
Cute place. Nice greeting. Kitchen very accommodating to dietary proclivities ! The best lobster/corn chowder ever! Good cocktails and wine list! Well-trained servers. I'd return!

Chef Gulijan does a superb job in preparing his authentic seafood dishes. Fresh local fish cooked to perfection, in very different style dishes. A must go to restaurant if you are serious about seafood!

Generally very good but some misses
This is not a cheap restaurant, so the food should be consistently excellent. Most of it is, but there are some big misses. Salad with grilled peaches, goat cheese, and pecans barely had any of the three. A fruit crisp for dessert was seriously under-baked, and was mushy instead of crisp. The main dishes however were consistently fantastic. Monkfish, scallops, pork were among the best you'll find anywhere. Weird inconsistency between mains, which were uniformly excellent, and the appetizers and desserts which seemed hit or miss.

No one comes to this restaurant
There was only one other table seated in the restaurant. No one comes to this restaurant The food was good but portions of appetizers for 14 dollars were small. Entrees were expensive . The 7 ounce king salmon was 45 dollars. Good but not worth the price. Maybe they should lower their prices and more people will come or extend their prix fixe time ( which is 5:30-6:30) and they will get more patrons Have been to many Hampton restaurants this summer and all were more crowded than plaza cafe. Food was better and less expensive

The Chef Keeps Me Coming Back
My party of four really enjoyed the fish -- and the deserts. If it was a bit less pricy I'd be back every week.

We had another excellent meal
We had another excellent meal at Plaza Cafe. The heirloom tomato and Burrata mozzarella appetizer was wonderful as was the lobster and corn chowder. The mahi mahi was very inventively encrusted with macadamia nuts and served on a bed of puréed plantains and bits of chorizo sausage. The service was excellent as always.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
A little expensive but the food preparation was excellent with an unusual twist. Generous portions We were to full to try desert. Would definitely go back.
8/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
We dined twice for dinner. The restaurant was casual and friendly, but the food was refined and tasty. Not a Le Bernadin, but a very good restaurant.

The Plaza Cafe is an old standby
The Plaza Cafe is an old standby for me. I have seen many changes over the years, all for the better. Our waitress Barrie is a gem; she knows her customers, is very accommodating and knowledgeable about the food and wine. While the $50/seafood entree was a price shock, there is something for everyone on the menu. The selection of seafood appetizers is outstanding.

Excellent, inventive food
Excellent, inventive food at fairly resonable prices. Nice that chef comes arouind after diiner to see if you are happy...

This was our second time at this lovely restaurant & we had a truly delicious dinner from the Pacific Shrimp to the Horseradish crusted Cod to the Creme Brûlée. Looking forward to next time!

Great meal on a quiet night
Sometimes fixed price servings can be skimpy on quantity even if delicious. Not here. Good portions and delicious.

Plaza Cafe which is tucked away on a quiet side street near the Southampton movie theatre delivers consistently excellent food
Each dish is beautifully constructed especially the seafood.Many of the ingredients are lically sourcedThe wine list is extensive and the recommendations are right on the mark.

Consistently perfect, fantastic chef, sublime ambience, wonderful seafood dishes

What a find
4 of us were there for dinner on Monday night in November. The place was beautiful. Great ambiance. The food was amazing. The service was solicitous without being annoying. Had a tiny snafu with tonic in drinks, which was rectified without fuss. Chef came out at the end to talk. Kind of sad that there weren't more people there.....I guess that's a hazard in the Hamptons off season. Of course, that's the best time to go. We urge everyone within 25 miles of the place go there for dinner a lot!!!

Wonderful all around...
We have been going to Plaza Cafe for years and it never fails to impress!
