    By far the best restaurant we visited during our stay. Food was absolutely delicious and varied. Service was excellent and attentive. We dined outside, the chairs were a little uncomfortable but otherwise loved the atmosphere and vibe from the restaurant and street life.

    Lovely place, good wine, good service. But in the best part of summer the menu should have many more vegetable-centered dishes in it. What was available would have made a great winter meal.

    Ordered six course tasting menu. 5/6 courses had heavy cheese. No drinks were served until the third course. All the individual courses were tasty, but really did not fit well together.

    Food was excellent. Horrible & chaotic service - had to wait 30+ minutes for a simple dessert that probably takes 5 min to make.

    Plado's was a last minute choice and it was a great one! Service was good, food was wonderful, located on one of the many cute side streets in LES. The gnocchi is a "MUST HAVE"....oh my God, delicious!!

    The food was extremely underwhelming. Perhaps the kitchen was having an off night, because this place came as a high recommendation from friends, but after my experience, I have no desire to ever go back. The complimentary bread they serve with homemade hummus was stale, as was the bread that came with our burrata; all of the dishes came out lukewarm; we ordered a roasted carrots dish and the carrots were raw; and the steak dish we ordered was so fatty half of it we left on the dish. The best thing we ate was the grouper.

    Good tapas. Tasty. Fresh. Hot. Ample. Sangria solid but too much ice. Prices downtown Manhattan. Good attentive service. Small main restaurant so noisy customers amplify. I’ll return.

    Went to plado for a date night with my husband. We walked in with zero expectations and this place absolutely blew our minds. If you are vegan or vegetarian, this place has lots of options. We tried the vegetarian wings, basil rice ball and the charred octopus. We loved all of it and the drinks menu is small but goes really well with the ambiance and the food

    I went here with a friend and LOVED it! The only reason I'm giving 4 stars and not 5 was because I thought the food could have been slightly better (it was still delicious, but room for improvement for the price/atmosphere that you would expect). That being said, GET DESSERT - and get the Chocolate Tart - to die for. I will 100% be going back here again, the ambiance was perfect - small, dimly lit tables and a bar.

    Everything was fabulous. Honestly, I have been dining out a lot in nyc and this is now my favorite place. It is small and lively, tiny kitchen, with really tasty dishes that are a decent enough size. Lots of interesting flavors and ambitious preparations that the kitchen lands with a 10.

    Plado was absolutely delicious, and the service was impeccable. I loved our server, and wish I'd caught his name. Make sure to try the taro gnocchi and the fried baby artichokes. It was a bit loud, but it was still possible to hold a conversation. Also, they had some of the best sangria I've ever had, which came in an EXTREMELY generous class for a great price.

    What a great restaurant! We went (2 of us) for a date night and had an amazing time. The vibes were great, lighting was perfect- dim lit, and food was amazing! Very filling tapas. My only comment is that people are constantly coming in the restaurant which forces a gust of cold air during the winter season. I wasn’t lucky with my seating for this situation but there were plenty of spots that probably weren’t affected by it!

    All the glowing past reviews are spot on! The food and service were both amazing. Every dish was delicious. The gnocchi was to die for! So much so that we doubled our order. The octopus was so tender and a highlight of our meal. Our server was friendly, knowledgeable and offered perfect suggestions for our table. My friends and I met the following day and could not stop glowing about our dinner. We can’t wait to return!

    This is our go to place for our friends get togethers. The food is consistently delicious and the atmosphere is intimate but not sleepy. Very warm and inviting and great for conversation. Staff is attentive but not disruptive and will gladly recommend dishes to try. The shared plate element is perfect and gives everyone the opportunity to try several dishes. They also have a back room perfect for larger groups or parties. Perfect for holiday get togethers. 10’s across the board!
