The service was wonderful and the restaurant was a lovely environment - I found the food a little lacking in creativity for an upscale restaurant though.

I came here from OC for my gf's b-day. I had high hopes and they didn't disappoint me :) It was quiet, romantic, and scene from the window seat was awesome. We had Kobe Burger and Grilled halibut and both dishes were very tasty. It is bit pricy for everyday place, but it is perfect choice for special occasions.

Good place to meet friends coming from the north (Ventura area). The choices are good for lunch/brunch and all are well presented and very tasty. Healthly drinks are available.

Our server, George, was a total pro. The food was good, not amazing, but solid. The room, while only half full, was quite loud due to the lack of any noise absorbing soft surfaces or fabric.

Impeccable service and tasty food. It may be a little pricey for what is essentially a strip-mall location but it's worth it (and it's Malibu after all).

This restaurant exceeded all my expectations. The food and service were vastly superior to many more expensive restaurants throughout the country. The freshness and variety of the cuisine is the best I've experienced in Los Angeles. From now on, this is my family default restaurant of choice.

We could not have been more pampered and well fed. We even got a great discussion of the food preparation. We had some great tea, split an appetiser, split a yummy salad, each had a very unique and marvelous entre and followed with a fantastic desert. Well worth it and no "over stuffed" feelings the next day. Perfect !!

This place was disappointing. The food was very ordinary and overpriced--we left much of it on our plates. The ambiance was also nothing special; inexpensive, uncomfortable chairs in a space that felt a bit like a cafeteria. The lack of customers in the restaurant told the whole story.

My only disappointment about my visit to PLATE is that I didn't start coming here years ago. But … I will make up for lost time & now eat here often. While location is not exactly appealing (on corner of PC Greens Market parking lot,) open the door & glance inside. Small room, nicely laid tables, attractive lighting, & a grown-up feeling. Jorge was our server; he's charming and extremely helpful & really added to the experience. We took a long time poring over the diverse menu--so many great-sounding choices. Kind of menu that allows you to dine out with friends who have divergent likes & dislikes. We tried the caesar & roasted pear salads, hangar steak, margherita pizza, & chicken schnitzel. All were nicely presented & delicious. A gem!

It's an upscale restaurant in a downscale strip mall location, but that didn't deter many who were there for the food. Ocean view in Malibu.

My girlfriend and I headed to Malibu for a early evening dinner and wanted to dine at a casual restaurant with good food and a view of the ocean. May of the local restaurants have great food and views, but are either extremely expensive or you have to book a reservation weeks in advance. We were told about Plate by a friend. We arrived are were instantly charmed. The restaurant was bright, clean and had a nice vibe and was located on the "Land" side of PCH. Never-the-less, we sat a table with a great view of the water. The service was great and the food was wonderful. I had the chicken schnitzel which was the best I've tasted since my last trip to Germany. Rest assured, we will be returning to Plate in the very near future!

This place is not hard to find, but it's easy to miss if you're not looking for it. The food was excellent. I had the Wienerschnitzel, and it more than reminded me of my childhood in Germany (more than I can say for the others I've tried recently...and it's not a German restaurant). Dessert was just as good. Definitely planning to go back to try their other menu offerings.

My wife and I had early dinner reservations before heading off to Pepperdine for a concert. Wednesday evening there were few other diners so we were able to choose a table with an ocean view (across the highway.) Our waiter was friendly and attentive, without being "too" attentive. We shared the "tower of crab," an appetizer, and a Kale salad with beets and goat cheese. Both were delicious. We shared the evening's special entree, scallops on top of squid ink pasta. Also, delicious. For dessert we had the flourless chocolate cake. Really luscious.
We both appreciated the restaurant's obvious commitment to organic, fresh food and the availability of vegetarian options.
We'll be back.

Entering the three of us were given a warm cheerful greeting. It was Christmas Eve. The menu was very special for the season
and the holidays. One of us chose a halibut dish, one salmon and one a chicken dish filled with excellent vegetables. Our
salad was a very healthy one--red and golden beets on kale with feta cheese. Delicious. Chocolate mousse was a wonderful
ending. Service was attentive throughout and the holiday decorations were quite beautiful yet understated. We will definitely return
and bring our friends.
