The volume of music was such that it was difficult to hold a conversation. Beer coolers were down. There were more flies than customers, even though it was a busy evening.

Plank is one of the best-kept secrets in Bronte Village (west side of Oakville, Ontario). We have lunched there on a number of occasions and have never had a bad meal or bad experience. The staff is super friendly and the food is well above par.

The pizza was a generous size and could be shared easily. The octopus was perfectly done and served over chilled vegetables with spicy peppers - an intriguing combination. The view out the south facing window was wonderful and made for a relaxing meal.

Location is great! Food is great! Service was very quick.
I just wish it had been a little quieter. Not sure if it was where we were sitting or if the whole
restaurant/bar is that loud, but we couldn't have a conversation. It was way too loud. I could
barely hear them talk and had to really raise my voice to talk. I really didn't enjoy it like i had
hoped to...for father's day. The food was SO GOOD but the fact we couldn't talk was dissapointing.

Very noisy. Music very loud. Service was excellent. Menu needs to be redone! Food was not great. Wings very salty and lettuce wrap was ground chicken ! Discusting!. Steak was cold. Kids liked pizza!
Would not go back till better menu!

I felt that Plank was a bit too much roadhouse ambiance on the inside than I had expected, so we sat on the patio instead. The tables were cramped and the ferns surrounding the patio kept encroaching on our lunch, which frustrated my step mom. The servers were nice and the food was average. I ordered the beet hummus which tasted a bit bland, followed by the prickly pear salad which I enjoyed. My step mom ordered a pizza which looked great. Portion sizes were generous and we took our leftovers home. The view of Bronte Harbour was a highlight.

Great food, great service. We tried the ever popular cauliflower that we noticed everyone was having for a reason. The wagon wheel pizza we will definitely order again. Great suggestions from our waitress who was attentive.

Came here for a birthday (just 2 people) and told them it was a birthday when I made reservations, and when I arrived at the restaurant. No birthday dessert was brought out which was unfortunate since I was looking forward to the little surprise.

Always happy when visiting Plank. However, we made a reservation for my girlfriends birthday 2 weeks in advance. When arriving we were given the worst table in the restaurant - in the back by the washroom and office. Wasn't impressed. Those tables should be saved for walk-in's. I could have just shown up 20 mins early and got a better table.

We had tried to get into this venue as we are new to Oakville and until this reservation we had no luck.
The food was great and the service was really good.
We plan to bring our friends to the Plank in a week or two and I will be making a reservation for 6.people. We really felt comfortable there.
Thank you.

Very very noisy at lunch hour! Great food. But is it because tables are too close together or too small, but may not go back due to noise level. Hard to chat and catch up with friends.

I've eaten here a number of times and have always been impressed with the friendly service and interesting food choices. It seems though that the price of wine has gone up and a glass for $12 is quite expensive for a lunch menu. I was also shocked to find out that Plank still doesn't have an espresso machine for lattes, capucinos, etc.
