The Mad Platter
Mother's Day BrunchWe had a leisurely late brunch/dearly dinner. The ambience is unique and different each time we have visited The Mad Platter. The food was exceptional and attractively presented. We shared the Chocolate Elvis for dessert! What a delight! We will definitely revisit The Mad Platter!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat, local spotMad Platter never lets me down. I took my parents there for Mother's Day brunch, and the food was very good, as usual.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExciting FindWent to the Mad Platter for the first time on Mother's Day. We were seated right away and quickly attended by our server. The food took a while to get to our table. I was getting a little worried about the time it was taking, but once the food arrived I forgot all about the wait. My partner and I had Eggs Benedict with Steak and with Crab and they were simply out of this world. The Hollandaise sauce was perfect and had a little kick to eat. The eggs were cooked perfectly. Even their iced tea is special. It has a cinnamon flavor to it and was heavenly. Definitely recommend this place to anyone who loves good food. I am hoping the slow service was a fluke and willing to give them another chance. Overall a wonderful experience.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBrooklyn Vibe in Nash-VegasWalking into the Mad Platter was like walking into a neighborhood gem in my old neighborhood of Park Slope, Brooklyn. Cool, funky artwork (for sale) on the walls, an exposed brick back wall that has to be over 100 years old, casual yet refined atmosphere, friendly service, and much like Park Slope or the Lower East Side of Manhattan, the star of the show was the food. The vegan ginger carrot soup was amazing. The Citrus and Bellagio salads were superb. The duck breast was delicious. The only thing that kept it from being rated outstanding was my paella dish. It was very good, but its over-tomato'd broth and "fishy" mussels left it short of "outstanding." Wine (Williamette pinot noir and French Chardonnay) was very good. We'll be back!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial nightI wanted to have a special night out with my girlfriend, and this was the right choice. The atmosphere was homey and romantic and the food was great!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfection!So glad some things never change! It's great that a restaurant can be this consistently excellent after more than 20 years in business. Our meal the other night was perfectly executed with impeccable service, in the same old charming atmosphere with original art and books on the walls and hardwood floors. Loved the tomato fennel soup, the crabcake appetizer, risotto and of course the Chocolate Elvis - but the salad, with greens so fresh I'm sure they came from the garden out back, stole the show. MP's 5 course dinner truly is the best deal in town... come hungry!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMSo Low Key and Beautiful.We had a reservation for a late lunch for 6 of us. It was a great gem in a beautiful neighborhood...light fare with a great low key relaxed style about the place, but nice enough to use linen napkins! We had a great table in the back which was next to the kitchen and serving area, but this really wasn't too distracting. The dining room is decorated nicely and fully of bright cheery light. Loved our time here!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Mad Platter has alwaysThe Mad Platter has always been a hidden gem. The food is always spectacular, the service outstanding and the price appropriate.

My family have enjoyed the great food and ambiance for more years than I can remember and our recent return visit was no disappointment. From the appetizers (tomato soup, cheese plate and Mad Platter Ceaser) to the entrees Maple Duck; salmon and rack of lamb; to the desserts (tiramasu and Chocolate Elvis) we couldn't have envisioned a better evening.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyed our experience andEnjoyed our experience and will come back soon.

We have been dining here for years. Wonderful meals, wonderful service. Quiet, also great for lunch. You will not be disappointed. Chef prepares a diverse menu always different. Great restaurant check out the website. It's not the bar scene thing.3/2/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Best -When choosing dinner out, this is our first choice. We have enjoyed this restaurant for years. My husband frequently enjoys their lunch menu. A year and a half ago he planned a surprise birthday party for me -- it was the BEST! If you are so fortunate to have her as your server, Ms. Brenda is the best!1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
