I brought dear friends from out of town and we had a FABULOUS meal and a great time. Excellent food, good drinks and a sweet visit with Alan and Dzintra.
Beat place to eat within 200 miles!

Incredible food and service. We had the lamb and the lasagna and both were excellent.

We were very disappointed, maybe we expected too much. We ordered the Beet Salad, Shrimp Scampi and Seafood Risotto. The salad was mostly lettuce, a few beet pieces, not much else. The Scampi had a big blob of rice with maybe 4 shrimp around it, not much sauce. The Risotto had a big lump of risotto and 3 scallops around it. Again, not much sauce. Neither had vegetables or even garnishes.

Our server was really great, kind and read our table well. It was a very expensive meal and the food was disappointing for the price. I had a filet which was excellent however, others had lamb chops that were over cooked, halibut that didn’t have much flavor and short ribs were just ok.

Wonderful quality food prepared perfectly. The Filet is better than from any downtown steakhouse. The menu is varied and not overwhelming. Whatever you are in the mood for, you will likely find it here!

3rd time here and first 2 visits were outstanding. This time the service was horrible. Felt like they were understaffed, The waiter we had was very terse and non engaging. Food was good, but my wife’s salad came out dry, which normally would not be a big deal except it took 5 minutes to get the waiters attention to get more dressing. Not sure we will be back which is dissapointing since it’s close to home.

Dale, I'm very sorry for your experience. We try to have a manager to have on the floor at all times to help. Also, we are working on the points you made. I hope you will give us another chance and want you to know the problem will be dealt with. Allen.

Had been thinking about trying your place for months and finally made a reservation for our daughter’s birthday. Although there was nothing wrong with the food, it lacked any unique flavor. We all had different dishes and none of us was that impressed, especially considering the price point. Our table seemed to keep being handed back and forth between servers and somewhere we got lost in their shuffle. We waited at least 15 min and then had to ask for a dessert menu despite having mentioned it repeatedly prior and during the meal... We waited forever to get the menu, and then again for the check once we had our desserts. Not a great first impression.

The pork chop was extraordinary and my lasagna was fantastic! Pretty much everything on the menu is terrific. The building is nestled in a garden setting with lovely views. You forget you’re in a shopping center!

Our first visit and we will go back for sure! Liked the unique various seating options and atmosphere. liked to discover the Marketplace inside for lunch options. liked the unique menu. Food was very good. We'd go back and try the bar menu as it is only offered until 6pm at the regular tables, but all the time if you sit in the bar. Our server was not the most welcoming or eager to tell us about the restaurant and options available. We did tell her our first visit. Everyone has an off night though. We'll go back!

Ahi Poke was outstanding as was the short ribs. Scallops were very good. Cheesecake very good. Nice wine list. We will definitely go again. They do need a non-alcoholic beer offering.

We enjoy dining at Plate by Dzintra very much. Prices are a little above our budget allowance so we reserve the dining events to special occasions!

Food is excellent at Plate. Can be pricey, but you get quality for the price. The ingredients are fresh and the preparation is executed flawlessly. It's a jewel hidden in a strip shopping center.

This was our first visit since they moved. (I know it was a while ago.)
Food still outstanding, and the service as well. Found the wine list a bit off-putting. Few wines by the glass and some not available on a Saturday night? Otherwise no complaints about the menu.
Found it a little noisy but as tables cleared out it got more pleasant. Definitely a come back to place!

This was our first time at Plate and generally we liked the atmosphere. Nice bar and lounge atea. The tables aren’t too close and there wasn’t any kitchen noise. The food was excellent but a little pricey for the location and ambiance. The server was good with a nice personality but we decided she was over worked at the end as she forgot to bring the dessert we ordered and instead gave us the bill. It took some time to get her attention for the dessert, which wasn’t very noteworthy, and then again to pick up the the charge card to pay.
I would give it another try.

Excellent food service and atmosphere. I had a superb chicken dish and my wife enjoyed her ideally done scallops. More room between tables made for a quieter room, which I value. This is one of the few "fine dining" experiences in west Austin. I appreciate not having to drive to the downtown metropolis to enjoy it.

We made special reservations. Totally disappointed. Food was good, service was not. Large party of 10, so they added 20% tip, even on expensive wine. Very inappropriate, as the service was poor and they didn’t even pour the wine beyond the first glass. Example: asked 3 times for water, 4 times for ice, didn’t have a knife, finally grabbed one from nearby empty table. Pitiful.

Not sure I can recommend to anyone. The service and staff attitude needs much improvement if it is going to match the food which was excellent. We were celebrating our anniversary and they placed us in the center of the room between two large tables that were noisy. The laid back attitude of the staff may be acceptable to some but was not what we had experienced from a prior dining experience.
