Mediterranean
Delicious and colorful California-fresh ingredients are the soul of our thoughtfully crafted and constantly evolving Mediterranean-inspired menu. Savor the spectacular array of seasonal vegetables, lean proteins, seafood, whole grains and artisanal pasta, breads and cheeses that invigorate our kitchen in healthy and exciting ways. Steps away, our comfortable and welcoming dining room is complemented by a bar/lounge and two outdoor patios that take full advantage of Southern California’s mild climate and the vibrancy of the UCLA campus to create an unforgettable year-round al fresco dining experience.

Seating at Plateia is first come first serve, as we don't guarantee location of table with a reservation, but if you have a reservation, you are guaranteed a table!
Plateia is a dog friendly restaurant, but even with a reservation, a wait may be necessary if the patio is full.

    Couldn't make a cup of coffee. Out of most varieties of tea. Server failed to bring a saucer with tea so used, wet tea bags were placed on the table.

    I have been to Plateia several times and enjoyed it but this time was a disappointment. We had to eat inside rather than on the patio because of the rain. It was extremely noisy and there were two dogs at the next table who were barking and running around. These were probably not true service dogs because of their poor behavior and in my opinion should not have been allowed in the restaurant. Service was poor and mistakes were made on both our appetizer dish and the main courses. We waited a very long time. The food was tasty but there was a very small portion of the duck. We were wondering if they actually ran out of duck and served us what they had left.

    The menu selections are very good and all of the many dishes we have tried over time are excellent. The servers are friendly and attentive, but not intrusive. The ambience is pleasant and decor attractive. Since Plateia is on the UCLA campus, business is busy before men’s basketball games, and the noise level increases, but it is never so loud that conversations at your table are affected. Sunday Brunch is especially good; a must try if you can.

    Have been many times and will return. Only issue this time is that the waitress got our orders wrong. She was nice but not detailed focused. Ordered burgers medium rare-both well done. Ordered lettuce wrap-she got it wrong. This is not the usual. Again-I will return.

    Plateia is an ideal venue to meet former colleagues and alumni because the menu is varied, the service is good, and it is possible to enjoy the pleasant surroundings.

    I think the fact that servers don’t receive tips causes them to not care much about their tables. After waiting a very long time, with my credit card on the check, I finally went up to the front desk to pay the bill. I ordered a bourbon on the rocks and the server was utterly baffled by what to do. Not inherently a problem, but I discovered her confusion when I got the check and saw that I’d been charged $12 for the bourbon and $4 for “rocks.” Not a huge deal in LA, but $16 for a house drink? The food was ok. I had the mushroom tagliatelle, which tasted about the same as the Hello Fresh dishes I make at home. I’ve eaten here once before and had the fish and it was spectacular. My partner had a salad and said it was excellent.

    Service was lightning quick so that we could make the basketball tip off at 6:30pm. The Old Fashioned is solid, the Impossible burger and fries was delicious and judging by how quickly my buddy vacuumed up his chocolate dessert, I think he liked it. Always a good time at Plateia.

    Not as good as it used to be. Hostess slightly rude, refused to sit us at window table even when several windiw tables were open-3 days in a row while we were hotel guests. Food ok but bug in our fresh fruit, runny scrambled eggs. Had to ask for ketchup and jelly every day.

    Table options we’re not ideal for a date, especially for an empty restaurant. Only option was next to receptionist and parking was confusing. Also seemed tooo quiet, needle could have dropped and everyone would have heard it.

    We have eaten there many times since it opened and always enjoyed the experience. Limited menu but each entree and salad that we’ve had has been excellent. Service has also been above and beyond . . . Would recommend it and look forward to dining there again.

    We've eaten at Plateia twice now (both on the patio and indoors) and both times the food was excellent. The service indoors was outstanding this time around. Everything we ordered was delicious (especially the risotto) and everyone was very accomodating. The manager even stopped by to chat with us, and was very friendly. We had a great time!

    Not up to Plateia's usual standards. The special Thanksgiving Turkey dinner was over priced, unimaginative, and did not include a dessert. The turkey, mashed potatoes, and gravy was okay, but the other sides were grim. And when we asked for extra gravy it was brought cold. The extra price pumpkin pie was good, but should have been included, given the price.

    It took about 15 minutes for anyone to even acknowledge us. I had to go up and ask for a waiter. We ordered everything at once and our drinks probably took 20 minutes and our appetizer meals probably took 40 minutes. The soup was burnt and I had to send it back. Not a great experience. Not sure if they were simply overworked or the fact that they don’t except gratuitities May impact service.

    Everyone was super friendly, although they got my order wrong and it was really hard to get the bartenders attention with only 2 others at the bar (already situated). The man who came on for her mid shift though was very attentive and personable. The food is a bit overpriced for what you get but I assume that’s to properly pay the staff that cant be tipped.

    I love this restaurant! The only thing I would do is maybe more comfort food. A grilled cheese with American or pepper jack!! On rye or a good bread. Some nightly specials. Roast chicken with baked potatoes. Mac and cheese. The old fashion way. Mix it up a bit. Remember it’s for students as week as the public and guest! A change is always a good thing!!
