Excellent meal! And service. Manager (?) Harry was most helpful.
The Plateia restaurant was a lovely experience, especially in this time of covid. The hostess and servers were well masked and very efficient and charming. The menu was gotten from an app on your iPhone. The food was prepared and presented well. The menu also had wonderful vegetarian dishes that were tasty and well prepared. Our server was very helpful and knowledgable about the food on the menu. In all, the service was perfect. I would eat at Plateia again in a minute.
Serene, secluded outdoor dining with creative, healthy food choices. Its a little-known gem on the threshold of UCLA's campus.
Robert, our server, was amazing. Was super accommodating. Plateia also had strict COVID-19 protocols; tables were spaced out and being cleaned after usage.
Excellent food & service. Thanks!
One of the best restaurants/hidden gems in LA! The food, service, and setting was exquisite
We had an wonderful lunch with our friends on the patio. Great food, atmosphere & amazing service. All staff were friendly and accommodating all our requests. Will be back soon, Thank you.
Great for outdoor dining with beautiful patio and great staff!
Disappointing. We were not allowed to sit at the same table because of L.A. county rules. We had to be from the same household. I saw other people at other restaurants dine together outside. We were told to sit at two different tables which was not a social situation. I get it the pandemic has put many restrictions on us but this was ridiculous outside. We ordered food and that was not good either. I think my broccoli soup had half a flowerette floating around a greasy broth. And it wasn't cheap. Come on. You do better than that.
First and foremost, Plateia appreciates the time it took for you to complete a review. Such critiques are excellent learning and teaching tools for our team and we do take them very seriously. As you know, Los Angeles County is extremely cautious regarding the established COVID 19 protocols in place as is UCLA. Nothing is valued more than our guests’ health and security although we realize that some of the rules are inconvenient and cumbersome. We do apologize that you did not enjoy the food.
Can’t say enough about how great the food is. The team members are so gracious. Amazing that it is no tax/no tip. The listed price is what you pay - like in Europe! We had the octopus and it was cooked to perfection. Anyone who thinks octopus is chewy needs to try it at Plateia and see what it should taste like! Portions and price is perfect for the locale. You really feel special here and the atmosphere is so serene - and then you realize you are in this secret place at the center of UCLA’s campus.
Such an absolute delight! Everything was more than Covid safe and the food and service were OUTSTANDING!
For me an Athenian born Hellenic woman Platiea is going to Athens while being in my Beloved UCLA in hometown of LA.
I LOVE Platiea
This is a very expensive restaurant and the food portions are very small. A small salad with the smallest piece of salmon I have ever been served at a restaurant was $24! The small salad was served in a bowl that is smaller than a cereal bowl and the salmon was about the size of 1/2 a deck of playing cards. For $24. Other lunch options are equally expensive. The patio is a lovely setting and the staff are friendly and very professional. It's a very nice restaurant with a convenient location but just be aware that it is easily the most expensive restaurant in Westwood Village.

Food was great and the outdoor seating is very attractive.
I really liked the atmosphere at this place. It was very cute and cozy with trees and lights. The waitress was warm and accommodating. I would definitely recommend this place if you are looking for a nice romantic and quiet night
The staff is always wonderful and the food is delicious. No tipping since prices include gratuity. There’s heaters outside but it’s still cold so bring a jacket.
We were looking for a place that was open and inviting.
We found it. Working on campus I was unaware of this place. I will be back soon.
So good. We will be back soon!
Relaxed graciously informal outdoor setting, trees, landscaping.
Terrific Burgers and Reggiano fries. Staff gracious and very patient.
A long, leisurely lunch in a restaurant part of an excellent hotel.
Excellent spacing, sanitation practices. Lovely ambiance on large outside patio under olive trees. Cocktails were perfect. Food delicious. Only criticism is service is slow so come to relax and heaters are attractive but inefficient so bring a warm jacket or coat. A nice oasis on UCLA campus at the Luskin Conference Center and Hotel.
Everything was great. Pleasantly surprised. Would go there again.
Love the restaurant and the food. All round great value. One thing that would be helpful would be Opentable letting people know that Plateia can only seat 6 people to a table.
One of the only restaurants I feel comfortable dining at during COVID. Temperature check at front door, masks required upon entry, PPE on all staff, no menus, just scan a code to see menu on your phone. Great ambiance on the outside patio at this UCLA restaurant. Very nice Mediterranean style cuisine.
Great place to go for a quiet meal on-campus (outdoors).
Plateia never disappoints. The outdoor patio setting under the olive trees is just lovely. The food is incredible, especially the deserts. This is definately a great place to eat and relax.
Beautiful food, excellent service, and we felt very safe.
Delicious, top-quality food. Had the Columbia River salmon burger. Have had the steelhead trout another time. Terrific. Beautiful environment, too, surrounded by a lovely garden of cacti and succulents.
This is a little gem in the middle of UCLA campus! After leading a small group 6 around the sculpture garden, we arrived at Plateia with our table outside "reserved" with umbrella shades well placed. Everything was very much COVID sensitive: masks, shields, gloves, hand sanitizer, distanced tables....so reassuring! But please let me commend the alfresco dining patio as beautiful, drought sensitive plants. Food and service is excellent, for carnivores as well as vegans.
It was a wonderful evening, the service was very relaxing, the food was excellent. We had a good time!
Love this restaurant
Great spot. Kind of a find, since it’s on campus.
Great place, nice staff, and fantastic food. Will recommend and will go there again.
Wonderful food, service, and ambience.
It's a great place to meet people, with an excellent bar and lots of areas where to sit and chat.
The restaurant is good and the service as well. I like the salads and the main dishes. Once in a while there is something that is a bit of a stretch, not unusual for chefs in the US who love to invent even what should not be reinvented, like "Cacio e pepe" It's not advisable to mess with the original recipe by adding ingredients that do not fit just to make it a little different. It doesn't work. "Pecorino Restaurant" does a better job with that dish (but not with others - they have no idea of how to make "puntarelle").
The food was pretty good but the cocktails were quite small for the price. Service was slow but friendly so don’t come here if you’re in a rush
