    First visit to 'plas and it did not disappoint. Our server, Xander was exceptional. Food was very good but the 2 standout items were the Street Corn and the Lemon Cheesecake. I will be dreaming about both of these dishes until we return again. As we were leaving, the Associates in the kitchen went out of their way to say goodbye and wish us a nice evening. Really classy touch!

    I live in the neighborhood known as the Short North where Plas is located. Even with so many eclectic choices in the Short North, Plas stands above all. The menu is varied, seasonal, fresh and unexpected. Menu descriptions are appetizing; however, after "first bite" it's like "wow, that was unexpected" and now you know Plas is someplace special. The Chef's culinary creations are a carefully-crafted symphony of sophisticated flavors that delight and surprise. You will find yourself asking the attentive staff "what's the background flavor I am tasting...?" They are happy to share and then you quickly reference Google to read about it. The house cocktails, wines and booze-shelf are all thoughtfully curated and paired with the menu. If you are not sure, the bar staff is happy to provide a taste and even help you explore different selections with their insights into the origins, region or history. We enjoy sitting at the bar conversing with other guests. The bar is inviting and comfortable for eating. Great for out of town "table for one" visitors who like "lite" socializing sitting at the bar. If a person asks me where a "special restaurant" is in the Short North, Plas is always at the top of my list. All the other restaurants are somewhat "homogenized," at best. Plas is one of the great ones you will want to tell friends about.

    Food was average to good. We travel all over the country, this was just no amazing. I.e. tortellini dough was too thick, over powered the crab.

    Patio is great. I appreciated that the host saw our masks and offered to walk us to our table outside instead of through the restaurant. It was really thoughtful and showed a level of attention to detail that was present throughout our meal. Service was awesome. I had the vegan trio for restaurant week and my food was really good. The dessert sampler was excellent. Also, yay for non-alcoholic cocktails!!! We tried three of them and they were all tasty and priced well. Only con was the price of the food. We enjoyed our experience and will probably go back but left feeling like the price overall was high for what we had. On the other hand, we’d probably pay it again because it was a great birthday dinner. Might feel differently if it was a regular dinner out.

    Went for restaurant week. We ordered different things for each course so we could maximize the amount of things we tried. First two courses were very good. Last course was disappointing for us both. Poor cuts of meat that were very fatty and barely edible. I wonder how much of this could be attributed to the mass production of restaurant week. But was disappointing given the $50 price tag. Would potentially be willing to try again because I could tell the flavors and service options were outstanding.

    The menu was great for restaurant week and we loved each bite. The server was amazing. Super friendly and attentive. The only issue I had, was as the place filled up it was so loud, you had to yell to hear each other. Unfortunately, that’s a deal breaker for me. We will definitely go back, but be sure we figure out when their slow time will be.

    Very disappointing restaurant week experience at Plas overall. A few major things that contributed to the poor experience: - Table was not ready upon arrival (7:15 pm reservation) - After being seated for 20 minutes, we had to ask a waiter to take our drink order. - Almost every course had something that wasn’t right including missing accompaniments (multiple times), severely undercooked proteins, etc. - When undercooked proteins were sent back to be cooked correctly, they were served with a different side than what was served originally (and what listed on the menu) - We we’re celebrating a birthday (which I listed in my reservation) and it was not recognized in any way. - We we’re asked if we wanted our check before our last course was served - Meal lasted 2 hours and 45 minutes due to extremely slow service - Not a single apology and no explanation at any point for above issues. No concessions on bill. For additional perspective, the highlight of the experience was the bus boy who was attentive refilling our waters and clearing the table after each course.

    Granted it’s restaurant week so I understand proportions for this might be smaller. But this was an extremely underwhelming meal. We each picked 3 courses and although they tasted pretty good on the whole I have to say the size and value for money for $50 per person was super disappointing. We were there for nearly 2 hours waiting for our 3 meals and they were tiny. I mean tiny. My wife got the vegan options and I have to say for a restaurant charging $50 for this deal and the meals to come out looking like they had no finesse was super disappointing. I had the Mozeralla Caprese salad first…two tomatoes and slices of mozeralla with some balsamic and some oil. That was it. Nothing really elevated or impressive. My wife got the Pimento Street Corn and it was about a handful of roasted corn if that and both looked like something you would get at Applebees. We then waited an hour before our second course. I had the Blue Crab tortellini, again pretty good but not at the standard you’d expect for a place charging this much. Again a tiny portion with only one tortellini. My wife had the Vegan Summer Ragout, which come with an Eggplant spinach polpettini which didn’t look very appealing but didn’t taste too bad. Again we waited another 30+ minutes for our final dish. My wife got the Vegan Roasted Mushroom Adobo and I’m still trying to work out why they thought cilantro lime risotto in a broth, adobe mushrooms and pineapple salsa would work. They tasted like 3 separate meals and my wife only got through a quarter of it. I had the Coffee Roasted Lamb Ribs…they should have marketed this as Rib as you only got one. I have to say this was by far the best dish, however not a lot of food again and although the flavor was there the value was not. Was gutted when The Table closed down during the pandemic and was excited to try this place. Have to say I won’t be rushing to go back as the meal overall was pretty [pretentious’].

    If you don’t like spicy food don’t eat here. Even the charcuterie board was mostly spicy vegetables with hardly any meat or cheese. The entree I chose was supposedly made by a new employee and was so salty it was inedible, our neighboring table had it also and sent it back. Our waiter wasn’t very helpful when asked to describe the entrees. On a positive note, they comped our meals and we only paid for drinks which was very much appreciated!

    Great ambiance with a good music playlist, lighting level, local art adorns the walls and a great overall atmosphere. Open kitchen right up front so there is no mystery in the preparation of your food and everything is scratch made, to order, in house. Fresh ingredients and inventive seasonal menus make sure every meal is spectacular. Chose indoor seating but the patio looked amazing. Serving staff was friendly and, for my taste, were not overly attentive or overly absent. Will definitely be back bring friends/family to share the experience.

    The menu options were limited and several items ran out & required new selections since the switch to summer menu Still hadn’t occurred. Food was good but overpriced for quality & quantity received. However, the worse part was the service. After multiple times stating to staff I was gluten-free & avoiding breads & pasta, server kept pushing pasta dishes & brought non-gf bread to the table which I hated b/c it was wasted.
