Not nearly as good as previous visits. No one in group loved their meal. Charcuterie appetizer small and uninspired. Duck, chicken dishes just ok. Eggplant rollitini was a flavorless soupy mess. Kale salad was tough. Hope they can return to their former higher standards.
Server didn’t tell us the specials then charged us for drink we did not want. Disappointed
Great place to go with friends. Crab cakes delicious! Burger and Mojo chicken are great choices. Be sure to sit outside on a nice day/evening.
The food was good but very small portions including a glass of wine. Service was great.
I stopped here for lunch before a business appointment. It was a very nice day for utilizing the patio so I ate outdoors. I had the special of half a chicken salad wrap with a cup of squash soup. Both were quite tasty. The wrap included apples, grapes and other healthy and flavorful ingredients and was quite easy to handle. The server seemed to have a number of tables to see to so service was not always quick, but was acceptable. I will return here for dinner or lunch on other occasions.
Dirty and prices don’t match the integrity of the food.
Very nice. Food ok. Service excellent.
Easter brunch was very rushed even though they weren't that busy when we were there.
The crab cakes and fried oysters were amazing!
Always love coming to Plates. Their menu is every changing, yet they still are consistent. We love sitting at the bar and having Jeremy make some of the best cocktails we have found in Raleigh!
The Sunday roast was amazing, as was the charcuterie board!
Overall, it was a good experience. The only negatives is that they charged me $2 for soda water and the server took up my plate before my friend was done so she was left eating solo and I find that very rude. Good food and very friendly atmosphere. Would go again.
Eat at Plates for the first time and was very impressed. Food, atmosphere and service all great. It was a cold rainy night and walking into the warm cozy restaurant was delightful.
Good I would go there again
Amazing food. Wine was perfect and the Gin Tonica was the best ever. Can’t wait to go back!
Very enjoyable dinner with friends. Casual and relaxed evening.
The host and maybe manager on duty kept watching our table to see when we were leaving. It was quite annoying as was the waitress who kept trying to refill our coffee, take our payment when we hadn’t even looked at the separate checks! I understand walk-ins, but there’s no reason you should rush guests with a reservation! The food was great!
Brunch was wonderful. I look forward to coming back very soon.
We love Plates. Their Sunday brunch is amazing. The burger is something you must try.
Always has an small menu of very good and well prepared options. Service is great.
The place lost its unique ambiance with the decor change, but the food and staff are both still warm and wonderful.
We've been coming to Plates for 4 years now! It's nice to sit at the bar, chat & eat, and the tables are comfortable to enjoy your meal as well!
My sister and I visited to celebrate her 21st birthday with brunch. The food was perfect and delicious and the mimosas were to die for! Such a cute little place with outdoor seating as well!
The food and cocktails were delicious. We had the shrimp & grits and the burger...both are excellent. The specialty mimosa was also very good. We had an initial issue with service. Wait staff walked around our table for at least 15 minutes with no one acknowledging we were there or stating they would be with us soon. Finally a waiter took our drink order and said our waitress would be with us soon. We finally had to ask her to take our order. From this point on she did a good job but it was frustrating to get to this point.
We had a really nice meal with good service!
Plates is always one of our favorites! The food & service never disappoint! In all the times we’ve been here, we have never had a meal we haven’t enjoyed.
Limited offering on Sunday. Menu does not look like anything on website.
It was great!
First visit to Plates. Great food, good prices, friendly and accommodating service. Arrived at opening for 11:00 reservation, dining room filled up fast. Service was well paced but not rushed. Outdoor seating on the patio with heaters was available but not many takers. It would be packed in nicer weather and I'd like to try it on my next visit.
The new brunch menu is incredible. Hands down, the brunch in town. I will be back next weekend.
Plates was a perfect place to celebrate Valentines Day! Great food and service!
Always a pleasure! We met friends for a joint birthday celebration - Plates did not disappoint. The dishes were amazing and the prices outstanding! The service was friendly and efficient. We'll come back again and again!
The food was wonderful and the staff was very friendly.
I am still raving about my meal that I had....it was simply delicious and the drinks were fantastic too. Bonus - they serve Fever Tree Tonic 100 BONUS POINTS!! We will be back - just fantastic!
Been here twice and both times really tasty results. Went for brunch only, and the breakfast type offerings are really nice. Second time we had the burger and hand cut fries, and a salad. The burger was very well done, but did have a bit of high end McDonald's type flavor with their sauce. The Caesar salad had a lemony dressing that was not our favorite, but it came with plenty of Kalamata olives! All in all a well worth it treat downtown, but prepare with pricey plates and a very young crowd. GREAT service every time...well done management!
Great place to have dinner. Good and service outstanding. Get the bone in pork chop. Wow!
Brunch was perfect! Such a great neighborhood spot that always has great food and service. I love the new decor! We look forward to coming back soon.
I always love the local flavor and changing menu of Plates. Service is kind and attentive. I was disappointed to have made a reservation this weekend and be seated nearly 30 minutes late. We had to wait outside in the cold and huddled around one heater that was heating a couple eating outside. They didn't offer us a drink or anything. Very strange. My partner was visiting from out of town and meeting the parents for the second time. It was a little hard to converse because it was so loud, but it was an OK experience. Great for rowdy friends, but not great for anything intimate, date-like, or an important lunch like this.
Brunch was very disappointing. The portions were small and bland. Bacon was the highlight.
We were pleasantly surprised with a most interesting menu, from starter (I recommend the cheese plate as it is to die for) to entree (I loved the New Mexico chili rub pork) and to the dessert (yum yum APPLE CRUMBLE !!!!!!!)
Our waitress was so energetic, yet professionally entertaining and attentive, and knowledgeable to a Tee.
The Chef (formerly from Heron's at the Umsted) delivered my drink and spent time with us (and I noted him doing the same with others) and actually walked us out the door when we finished.
I've really never seen such personal (but not over-bearing) service on top of spectacular food.
