The Blue Plate opened in 1999 as a casual spot where friends and neighbors can enjoy the best ingredients our seasons have to offer. Owners Cory Obenour and Jeff Trenam have created a space that feels like a home, with three distinct dining rooms each appointed with the work of local artists. In the back, a lush, night-fragrant garden offers an exotic retreat from the bustle of the city. The kitchen stays committed to using the highest quality local produce and meats in classic American and rustic Mediterranean dishes. Through a working friendship with Bay Area farmers, the Blue Plate is expanding the notion of "the blue plate special" to include dining that is casual, affordable, delicious and responsible.

Everything is always great here! Been coming here here ever since it opened and I have not had anything that I didn't like! Cory is a great Chef and Shannon is the best Host! We started out with the best deviled eggs ever, had a nice salad and I had the New York Strip and she had the Meatloaf which is a staple and is exceptional. For sure a New Years to remember!

Awesome food, top notch service. I love that the menu changes but the quality of the food never does. Keeps me coming back for more. Incredibly cozy clean decor. It almost feels like you're at a friend's house who really knows how to cook and entertain.

I love Blue Plate and keep coming back!
Staff is always insanely friendly and personable, and the chef works constantly to play creatively with his dishes and ingredients. The staples are phenomenal, and the changing menu items are always entertaining and delicious.

Blue Plate should be a model for all restaurants. Our waiter was attentive and the food was delicious. Our party was the first in the restaurant. We were greeted warmly by the hostess. That is one way to get off to a great start. Plus, the restaurant was so quiet we conversed at a normal voice level. Of course the restaurant was packed when we left and the volume went up but the first hour was lovely. Blue Plate offered us a memorable dining experience.
