We always enjoy eating at Plates. The food is consistently very good and the waitstaff is friendly and attentive. We appreciate everything the Chef and staff do in order to make this a wonderful place to eat. Thank you!
This restaurant was fabulous! The food was exceptional and the service impeccable! We stayed 3 hours and had a fantastic time! This is absolutely a neighborhood gem!
Nice address in Larchmont for a romantic diner.
Great service, delicious food, delightful ambience. Altogether a very good experience.
Food was delicious. Cold air blowing and they tried to fix it but it kept blowing. Background music way too loud
We sat at the bar. Beautiful cozy atmosphere. Great spot for a Winter evening dinner. We ate oysters, tuna tartare, scallops and Fried chicken, everything was delicious! We would go back!
We had an 8:00 reservation. The noise level was higher than our last visit. We asked to switch tables because we could not hear ourselves talk at the table where they sat us next to the bar. We all ordered starters and our main entrées. However, we felt very rushed by the staff. They brought out our entrées before we had even finished our starters. When we asked if they could please space out the courses so it wouldn’t be so rushed, our server asked that we tell him how much time we thought we’d need. We were astonished because it is the job of the server to gauge the timing of a meal, especially at a well-reputed restaurant like Plates. Two minutes later, another gentleman came to our table explaining that the kitchen closes at 9:30, the restaurant at 10:30, that there had been a reservation for the table (after the hostess had confirmed that it wasn’t reserved before seating us) and that they had to prepare the restaurant for an early event the next day. I’m sorry, but this shouldn’t have an effect on our dining experience, especially for an 8pm reservation. When the food came out, it was very good but now only lukewarm. The gentleman ended up apologizing for the reservation mix-up with the hostess and they topped off our wine free of charge. Even so, I have to say we left with an aftertaste of disappointment.
The salad was fine and the bread excellent, but my short ribs were somewhat disappointing. And the key lime pie was tasteless .
Very nice food in a comfortable and quaint environment. Everyone raved about their food and the service was attentive and nice.
As usual another fine meal. Plates is so good, we hardly ever leave Larchmont to eat great food. We tried another flat bread since we had 4 people, so good. The trout has a wonderful new preparation. Matt made it just as we requested - no salt. When a dish came with not mentioned balsamic vinegar to our allergic friend. No problem immediately exchanged.
Valentines special was one league below Plates magic. Maybe because we were among the last table, but all the magic was gone. Tasteless meat, cheap desert. Desappointed about the lack of sophistication. I recommended the place for Feb 14 to friends, fortunately nobody showed up...
Overbooked on Valentine's Day, forced into taking table adjacent to front door which was constantly opening and allowing cold air in. Tiny circular table was barely big enough to fit our drinks much less our dinner. The tables were basically on top of each other. Extremely uncomfortable and tight, it was like trying to eat dinner in a phone booth. Each time the waiter went by my date had to move her chair because there wasn't enough space for him to get by otherwise. Terrible experience.
We went on Valentines Day, which was a mistake. To capitalize of the occasion, they crammed in extra tables in a already-small venue, had a limited special menu and added on inexperienced staff. In an attempt to service the unusually large crowd, the food was mediocre at best and the service was abysmal. It appeared that one person was taking orders at a large number of tables and, from that point, the table was serviced by runners and busboys. Trying to find someone to replenish drink orders was nearly impossible and, once that was accomplished, the wait to actually get the drinks was interminable. Overall, it was an extremely disappointing experience.
As is their custom, they continue to have problems managing turn-over. For our 8:30PM sitting, we were not seated until 8:55PM. This has happened to us 75% of the time.
As always a great neighborhood venue with comfort food and relaxing ambiance and friendly efficient service. A consistent winner.
Dining at Plates is always a great expeeience! Great ambiance and my teenagers love the burgers!!
We were used to great dinner food at Plates; brunch on Sunday was more comfort food than gourmet fare. Good but not exceptional. Service was attentive and friendly and Plates remains one of the best dining options in Larchmont.
Food was delicious. It’s s lively restaurant. For the prices service should be better.
My husband and I have been going to Plates for years - it was our go-to date night spot. We were there on Saturday and the vibe felt off from the moment we were brought to our table:
-The greeter/seater asked us what kind of water we wanted before we even sat down
-There was a baby crying for half the meal - I am not one for no kids, but for these prices, I would have expected better
-I asked for my salmon to be cooked well - explaining that I know that is usually not the Chef's choice. Well I was right and the salmon came as I guess how the chef wanted to prepare it because it wasn't well done, at all.
-I asked for vanilla ice cream with the donuts and it came with the cinnamon. This is the second time this happened to me with this dessert. If it is not possible to make changes, the waiter should have said.
Overall, very disappointing and my husband and I left feeling like we may need to find a new date night spot.
Would recommend to all my local friends. It’s definitely a neighborhood gem.
I had their signature dish, fried chicken. It was very good. Would order it again.
I must have drove past "Plates" a thousand times and each time I said to myself, "I gotta try that place." Well, it was time and the dinner couldn't be more perfect. Everything was perfect from the moment we walked in late for our reservation, (we called), right through to the goodbyes .
Try the mini-taco's, expensive, but worth it. I will be going back again, soon.
Second time eating here. First time I loved our meal. Had numerous issues in our meal this time around. Made clear we didn't want a blue type cheese and we received one - which I didn't realize until I bit into it. Tuna I ordered was not spicey at all despite the menu suggesting such. My friend had to send her scallops meal back. Overall disappointing as we liked this placed prior. Waitor was nice but certainly didn't go above to try to resolve.
my wife and I have been dining at plates for years. very consistent kitchen, great service, great menu. one of our favorites
Went for New Years
Food was good not exceptional
We were very disappointed with our dinner at Plates. The food lacked any flavor. I ordered the ricotta with truffled honey crostini and it was tasteless. The fried chicken and skirt steak were also average. The food was also served luke warm. We expected much more for the amount we spent. The restaurant also appeared dirty, menus had food and stains on them, crumbs all over the floor and seats. We won’t be returning.
Amazing service for my son’s birthday and very nice!!!!!!
We had the swordfish and scallop entrees, and the ground lamb, and apple salad, fresh oysters, and mushroom crostini for appetizers, plus one "larchmonster" for desert. All were excellent - interesting and tasty. Our only complaint was a full glass of red wine being poured for our young-looking 13 year old guest.
The food was superb. My friend had the duck comfit and I had the local bass (from the specials menu) and we both had the mushroom crostini from the specials. All were amazing. The service, though, was odd. It was much too hard to get our server's attention! When she was finally "captured," she was friendly and enthusiastic. But otherwise she was spending so much time at other tables, laughing and talking, that one could guess they were perhaps old friends of hers. But it was quite frustrating!
Neighborhood gem near Larchmont train station and on Wednesdays they allow free corkage.
Food is fine and fairly priced. Service is warm and welcoming.
All in all a delightful dining experience
Our food was amazing!!! Such a special "neighborhood" place to celebrate our daughter getting into college! Mini short rib tacos will make your heart stop, they're SO good, and the sea scallops will take your breath away. Amazing culinary cuisine!
The food was good but I was a bit disappointed. Preppies experiences have been excellent. Tonight my friends appetizer came out cold and soggy. Then my swordfish and risotto was cold as was my friends Reuben. And the servers auctioned off the food which is a big no no in my opinion. But once the food was served at the correct temp, it was all delicious.
Best fried chicken I’ve ever had
Varied menu with something for everyone served in a cozy country house setting. Our table had pasta, pizza and duck confit, all delicious.
This was my first time here, special birthday occasion. A weekday night, but night before Thanksgiving, so many people I suspect did not want to cook that night. No parking spaces left in their lot, but street parking available. Nosy with kids up until 7:30 then it cleared out. This place has a wide range of food available from burgers & pizza to fancy stuff. Loved their deviled eggs appetizer! If you ever want real FRIED chicken, this is the place to go. Daily special is a good deal. I had a dessert that was like homemade "Ring Ding" !
Chicken and waffle, do not recommend
Gracious service and delicious food. Butternut squash soup, lamb burger and homemade apple pie. Can’t wait to go back. Go!
Early reservation was quiet but noise level very high by 8:00 pm. Only issue- otherwise lovely and delicious!!
This is a hard review to write because there was one dish that was terrible but all the others were excellent! Great fried chicken, great salads, great burgers, great dessert. The atmosphere is very homey and comfortable, the service was excellent. When I told the waitress that my pasta dish wasn't good (it was a special on the restaurant week menu), another waiter came over and they insisted that I get something else. I did! And it was great. I would absolutely return and recommend Plates. However, I am still quite puzzled as to how the pasta dish came to be. This was our second time there and we loved our first meal there. Maybe restaurant week creates some problems...Who knows?
Food was excellent, but very very disappointed in the service. Bar tender was awful - ignored us for 5 - 10 minutes before taking our order. Table service was not good either, there is a difference between letting a patron enjoy the atmosphere and ignoring them - tonight they ignored our table for long stretches at a time - we had to get up and remind the waiter to fill water glasses multiple times. Finally, starting up the vacuuming of the restaurant at 11pm is just awful while we were still finishing our evening. We will definitely not coming back for some time.
