this is not the first time
this is not the first time we've visited Plank. The service this time seemed strained somehow; not prompt and a little too "familiar" with our party.

Mother's Day Lunch
I had lunch with my Mother and Sister who came from Brantford to celebrate Mother's Day. It was my responsibility to pick the restaurant and yours came highly recommended by a friend. My Mother and Sister were very impressed with the food, the service and thought it was a great location. Our waitress was extremely pleasant and helpful. We had a great time and will definitely be coming back.

Definitely, worth checking out
Very comfortable and casual atmosphere and the food was excellent. We came for Mother's Day Brunch and were not disappointed. The dishes were wonderfully complex in flavour and the use of noticeably fresh ingredients was very creative. Add in great service and prices and it's a no-brainer. We'll be back for lunch or dinner.

I took a client here for lunch
I took a client here for lunch and we were both thrilled with the food, service and ambience. The only let-down was the mussels which both she and I agreed were lacking flavour and a let down.

Nice variety of items - tried
Nice variety of items - tried a number - house sliders great, fish tacos and cauliflower fritters were a hit.

First time, not the last:)
We weren't sure what to expect, Plank being advertised as an American Tapas Bar Resto. I thought it might be small, tasting platters but our choices were full sized portions. I guess everything could be shared but for 2 people with different tastes, not so much of an option. We thoroughly enjoyed the food that we had, calamari for my husband, nachos for me then wedge salad and tree huggers salad - more than filling, nicely presented with a different twist on ingredients.

Our new neighbourhood favourite!
Loved everything about it! There were 5 of us and there was something different for everyone! We understood it was a very busy place but it was not so much when we arrived so we were able to spend a pleasant afternoon reconnecting with friends and thoroughly enjoying ourselves! Delicious!

It was a beautiful Sunday and we had a nice spot on the patio. The traffic was a bit noisy but the view of the harbour was lovely. The menu has the expected brunch items, but with a unique spin on them. Fresh and tasty.

We are regulars and the food and service is always great.

I had been to Plank for excellent evening and lunch meals in the past. So I had high expectations for the Sunday brunch/breakfast. LOVED it. An innovative a la carte menu and some of the best staff I have seen work an Oakville restaurant in ages. They were bopping, singing to the tunes, in their pygamas, keeping my coffee warm and brought my meal to me hot and delicious!
I brought friends from London (Ontario) and they promised to make the drive again - it is worth it.
It was an elevated experience with a sunny day and the sailboats were visible on the lake from the deck and inside the dining room.

fun night out!
The small plates were great for a group and very tasty. It was loud with all the talking and music but that would be our only complaint.Our server was fabulous.

We arrived at 5 pm and by
We arrived at 5 pm and by 6 pm there was a line up out front waiting to get in. Up beat fun spot with friendly service. Noise level high, with everyone seeming to enjoy themselves. Look forward to our next visit.

This is the fourth or fifth
This is the fourth or fifth time we have visited Plank-the first time for lunch. We were a party-of four and each person ordered their own sharing plate. We then shared the various plates. Food was great-great variety of tastes and textures. Our server was prompt, friendly and efficient-even had a few minutes to chat with us. We had a great time overall., Or one minor suggestion is that the the lunch menu could have had a few more items as a couple of the regular items .were not available and so our choices were somewhat limited. However we enjoyed yourself and will definitely return

I have been to Plank a couple of times now and have enjoyed each experience. The menu is always changing and provides interesting options for every taste. The service is always friendly and attentive without ever feeling as though you are being rushed out of the place. I would recommend dining at Plank.

Wow! Duck poutine!
Great place in Bronte!
Cool atmosphere, great service, good food!
Amazing duck and foie grad poutine , calamari melted in your mouth ...

Plank is an incredible place for any occasion!! The service is fast and friendly and the food is to die for!!
During our first visit we sat at the bar and were able to enjoy great food and a wonderful show by watching the chef at work. It is incredible to see. During our most recent visit (Sept. 17) we sat at a table within the dinning area, which was also a wonderful experience. We've tried almost everything on the menu, and have yet to have a bad experience. Most recommended items would be the fish tacos...so good!!
Plank is definitely a great find for us and has now become a regular go-to spot. I'm already looking forward to our next visit!!!

Excellent spot for a late dinner
Food consistently good, be sure to make a reservation or be prepared to wait. Waiting area around the bar is small so may take some time to get a drink while you wait.

An amazing night
This was my first time and will not be my last. The night was great, food, service and the friendly atmosphere.
I love the Tapas way to serve food and it exceeded my expectation.
Thank you so much for making our night.

Nice birthday lunch
This was my first visit to Plank. I was treating my friend to a birthday lunch. Although I had made a reservation, our table was not ready (lingering clients and not the fault of the restaurant). We were offered a seat at the bar where we were promptly offered a complimentary drink because of our table not being ready. We enjoyed an appetizer there also and were moved when our table became available. The food was amazing!! My friend had the "duck special" and I enjoyed one of their pizzas. I would definitely return...outstanding service, food and atmosphere. Plus...there were numerous other items on the menu that I can't wait to try!

There were three of us and being able to share our dishes was perfect.
Overall, a great experience. We liked the look of the brunch/lunch menu and will try that when we return.
Keep up the good work, your staff are excellent and you are in a perfect location in Bronte Village.

Would be hot even in NYC!
What a fluke, we pull into Bronte Harbour by boat at 730 pm on a Friday, and have our OT res. for 9:15 at this place...wow..first all it's packed to the hilt (but for our saved table - thank you PLANK!) and sit down to some amazing chef inspired greats..fish tacos are the best I've ever had - and I've had many..Lobster poutine - a first and yeah as good as it sounds - beet salad of every color under the rainbow - duck empenadas with a slightly spicy sour cherry compote..yum ..I mean we're in freaking BRONTE!! Service just as good
What can I say,,oh yeah..great rare bourbons too I had two (BUFFALO TWIST- try it)..and each table with unique bourbon bottles for water - total class act - all for well under $100 for two...amazing..bravo PLANK!

Had dinner at the Plank Restobar on Friday Night. You definitely need a reservation whenever you go here - but Friday night was frantic! Got a small table at the front of the restaurant beside 3 "very LOUD" people so we asked to move to the Bar.
Food is awesome here and the service is excellent!
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
I took my brother who is not from Oakville, to the Plank and met our sisters there, and everyone loved it. We ordered a couple of appetizers that we shared along with a main course. Service was great, food wonderful, the only issue mentioned was the noise level, even though we were in the far corner, it was difficult to hear at times and the restaurant was not overly busy. But overall dinner was a huge success!

A GREAT FIND IN THE OAKVILLE AREA!
Through a search on Open Table I found Plank. After reviewing the innovative tapas style menu and the photo gallery of the space I decided to book this past Friday. The experience was fabulous and would highly recommend a visit - or two - or three! The restaurant was already in an energetic mode when we arrived at 5:30pm - clearly a favourite spot for many! Friendly service, fun, tasty and playful dishes, reasonable menu pricing = a definite neighbourhood gem!
