I come often and the service and food are generally outstanding. Yesterday it was much more crowded and service was slow. Fruits in the salad were not first-rate. Just generally down a few notches from usual, but I will always give another chance because the menu is healthy and I find the tip inclusion to be helpful and relaxing.
Loved all our meals here. Daniel our server, was friendly and professional and helped us feel comfortable. Food is innovative, fresh, and delicious. Atmosphere is California modern
Fabulous food. Lovely venue!
Service was outstanding and the patio was such a beautiful place to eat. I’m glad I made reservations! Even for Happy Hour, it was very busy.
Burger was supposed to be medium rare and it came medium well and dry.
Cesar salad was a nothing. Not properly dressed. Asked for bread which never came and after reminding our waiter he apologized and said the last batch had not baked. properly. That was legitimate, but why not inform us.
A regular favorite every time we are on the UCLA Campus!
beautiful setting. delicious food. wonderful waitstaff.
Excellent for a friendly, informal lunch, whether social or business.
Outside patio area was pleasantly cool on a very warm day in los Angeles.
Alway great food at fair prices and pleasant atmosphere
THE SERVICE WAS BEAUTIFUL. THE FOOD WAS BEAUTIFULLY PRESENTED.
We had very long waits between courses. We had a very helpful and enthusiastic waiter.
A neighborhood gem. Very lovely inside and out. We love it!
The New York steak was just OK, not worth $40. The quality of the beef was fair. The saffron shrimp linguine was unappealing; as a friend said it was not as good as a month ago. The halibut was the only dish that was very good. Even The Market Salad was not satisfactory.
The outdoor space was lovely, but the food was just average. Too bad that the quality declined in only a month.
The service was top notch. And the food and drinks were delicious.
Excellent service! Great setting for dining al fresco. Good value for pretty good food. Wish more items to choose from.
The courtyard is beautiful. Our table for three had a young olive tree on one side and a fountain so close we could hear the water falling. Service was efficient and unobtrusive, and our pizzas were delicious and flavorful. A lovely evening!
I LOVE this venue but the food varies. The menu was limited until after happy hour. We wanted hummus sooner and when it came there was not enough bread. Salad with peaches came with unripe large quarters of peaches rather than slices as we had last time. Polenta was great. Side of risotto fine. Dessert was great (chocolate), wine is good. Burgers always good.
The refusal of the podium hostess to seat us at 11:50 for a 12 noon reservation when outside tables were empty seemed unnecessary. We just had to stand at the bar.
We highly recommend Plateia. It's a beautiful setting, with indoor seating, and a large outdoor patio area for seating as well, surrounded by trees and the beautiful architecture of the Luskin Hotel/Conference Center on the UCLA campus. The service was excellent, and the food was delicious, high quality ingredients, creative, and generous in portion sizes, as well as beautifully plated. There's a great variety to choose from on both the food and the drink menus. We went for dinner, but are looking forward to going back soon for brunch--though we will be back again for lunch and dinner!
The food, atmosphere and service are all outstanding. Hard to believe it is on a college campus.
Excellent food and great service!
The food was delicious - the service was impeccable and fast - the patio was delightful. I highly recommend this restaurant!
What a gem, check it out!
Food and service were impeccable. We have returned several times. However, the chairs (outdoors) are not comfortable. They lean you back if you are relaxed and if you sit forward the edge cuts off the circulation to your legs.
Like the place a lot. Great service and ambience. Great menu too.
Always pleasant service, atmosphere and friendly staff.
The food was delicious and presentation is always great.
Open table showed no availability all day! I called to make a reservation and they had availability but said they could not guarantee a table outside, which is what I wanted. I almost didn’t go because I didn’t want to sit inside. When we got there, 80% of the tables were empty!
The food is usually very good, last night it was not quite as good. Service is good but on the slow side.
Delicious food and good service; though the portions were definitely not small.
Great ambiance and delicious food! Can’t ask for more!
Plateia provides a lovely environment for a relaxing dining experience. The menu offers something for everyone, and the staff are always there to help.
I enjoyed the food but we had an unpleasant dining experience because we asked to sit outside and got stuck with literally the only table that had no umbrella and was out in the blazing sun. There were other empty tables but we were not allowed to sit there because supposedly they were reserved but we did not see anyone arrive to sit there for 45 mins. We asked if they could move an umbrella over to our table and they said no. So we sat sweating for an hour eating our lunch.
Lovely place for outdoor lunch. Food, service and ambiance all good.
We had drinks, dinners and luncheons, and brought friends and family; each time we enjoyed the venue, food, and service has been excellent!
very slow, but courteous service. For covid reasons we wanted to sit outside. One person in the group got very cold and it took the entire dinner to get a blanket.
Outdoor gorgeous quiet setting made tis as good as it gets. Interesting food and great service is also important and hey have it!
Had to wait despite reservation. Were denied to sit on tables outside, despite there being several free tables and some other parties dining outside. Food ok, but pricy for what is offered and very limited vegetarian options.
Good food, service, ambience. Patio very nice; chairs maybe a little more padding?
The food was delicious, ambiance wonderful. Our waiter was on point. A hidden gem on UCLA campus, am definitely coming back next time I’m in LA
Easy to find on the UCLA campus.
Lovely outdoor eating.
We sat inside and it was great.
We adore Plateia. We bring our Golden Retriever and sit out on the patio where beautiful olive trees and umbrellas keep us cool and the fountain makes for a restful experience. The food is always delicious and the service is gracious, friendly and prompt. They even bring water and treats for our dog! Often when we walk her, she heads for Plateia. Smart girl!
