I like the restaurant, they didn’t ID the cheeses on the cheese plate. I had to ask.

The booths could use narrower legs for table top, awkward to get legs past.

I’ll continue to be a customer, I like the place.

We enjoyed having our Thanksgiving dinner here. All of dishes available in the buffet were of excellent quality with delicious flavors. There was enough of a selection to satisfy all who attended. We will consider returning to Plate & Vine in the future.

I am amazed that this restaurant has such a high rating. I was very disappointed. I had a Caesar salad with grilled chicken. The chicken was over cooked and dry and the lettuce was not fresh, some it was brown. I would not go back.

Best experience we have had there yet. Loved our waitress and the food was good.

We pre-ordered for 9 people and that was lovely.

Accommodated 12 people with no problem - was very convenient as we were having a conference and had limited time for lunch - found out we could have pre-ordered our meals.

Highly recommend

My complaint is not with Plate and Vine but rather the OpenTable app. The app allowed me to create a reservation when the restaurant was closed.

Luckily, Plate and Vine called me to correct it the night of my arrival. Unfortunately, because of my travel it would not work out. If OpenTable would’ve worked effectively I would have been able to make alternate plans instead of thinking everything was arranged.

This restaurant is in the Hilton hotel and is separate from the lobby. It is fairly quiet with comfortable seating and also an inviting outdoor patio. Bar seating is also available. It is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner on weekdays but no lunch on Saturday and breakfast only on Sunday. We (two couples dined for dinner). We ordered three seafood dishes, beer batter Alaskan cod, Scottish grilled salmon, and Idaho Pink Trout Almondine. All were excellent. There are also meat entrees and pizzas. Desserts included an excellent peach cobbler. Our server, Sara, was very friendly, helpful, and efficient. Validated parking is available along-side the restaurant if you are not a hotel guest. We will return soon.

This restaurant is in a hotel and has the somewhat generic, public feel of such places. Good service and the food was solid if not inventive. Decent option if you’re in the hotel but not a special trip.

Great service, and being able to have a quiet conversation was a big plus.

Beet salad was excellent, veggie risotto was delicious, wine selection was pretty good, but the Gorgonzola pizza was heavy-handed - way too much cheese, an unnecessarily huge pile of arugula, and not enough prosciutto.

MAry's Roasted Half Chicken is great. SO is the fillet. The slads are good. Lots of vegetarian choices. Not really that busy. Oven baked pizzas. Get a table in the wine room for a cozy and quiet environment on a weekday evening. Nice wine list; bar nearby.

Seriously delicious food: the sole was sweet and melt-in-your-mouth while the steak was cooked to perfection. Don't even get me started on the dessert, I hope I can have that again some day. Loved all the courses they had for Valentine's Day, especially the rose at the end, it was very romantic. Fast service and a great job getting each course out before we got too full.

Dishes were over priced and you didn’t get enough food. $38 for a sliver of salmon and only one potato with the dish and no veggies. Waitress was not very friendly.

The food was outstanding. We felt service was a little slow considering that it was not that crowded. They were relatively friendly but we did have to ask about the soup and specials of the day rather than it being told to us unprompted. It was NYE and if it had been busy we would have understood things being slow, but it seemed more like we just got forgot a few times. The food really was great though and I would come back and recommend to friends.

This was Thanksgiving buffet. The food was very good quality with good choices BUT it was not very hot.
The service was very good. Hostess was welcoming and our waiter was very good. Predinner drinks, empty plate clearaway and after dinner coffee was excellent. Value for money? Yes but only just, due to the lukewarm food.

We went for the Thanksgiving Buffet for the second year running. Half the charm is the cozy way the dining areas are tucked away from each other. Although we chose a peak hour of 2 pm, we were unaware of the crowd of diners even when going to the buffet. Buffets with a large number of choices make my Thanksgiving. I remember one in which I had seconds on rice pilaf and mixed greens salad over any of the meats or deserts. At this buffet I enjoyed the brie and the quinoa with kale. The baked salmon with sauce was good. Turkey breast when secured just after delivery from the kitchen was tasty and well textured. Sauces do everything because buffet foods are normally bland. The sauce for the salmon made the quinoa interesting. The usual three types of pies were not items I anticipated enjoying. Not till I had a piece of apple pie with chocolate sauce and whipped cream. Two negatives. The restaurant could do a better job of
keeping the food warm. Except for the turkey breast, which wasn't there on my first trip, the hot dishes weren't hot ...just lukewarm. The second thing was that the ham was inferior and more like a canned ham than a bone in roast one. My wife doesn't normally go for fish and never for turkey would have sent the ham back to the kitchen ..under other circumstances. She liked the sauce on the salmon and she loved the grapes and brie. Buffets--something for each and every diner. While we like dining out for Thanksgiving, we don't like the lines and hustle of the competing restaurants. Plate and Vine should advertise their offering because it is the best around. Relaxing and a bit romantic. We had a corner table but next to us was a table of eight adults talking in well modulated voices.

Thanksgiving Buffet offered most of the traditional holiday fare. Turkey was moist and flavorful. Unfortunately, many of the other dishes were barely warm. Pecan pie was brimming with pecans so the meal ended on a good note.

Had a good server and apparently they had a large group somewhere else. LONG wait for entree after fantastic salads. Entrees arrived and were #1- almost cold salmon and potato, #2- Lukewarm rack of lamb and potato. We HATE to send food back or review poorly, but this seemed like a long wait for cool food. When server brought it back.....salmon entree and potato was exactly the same temp! and the lamb was slightly warmer!!!!!! What??? We are not picky, but have never ever had this happen! Have tried to figure this out but can’t believe a kitchen of a restaurant rated this highly sent this to the customer. We were courteous the whole time.
