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.

    Always great food and outstanding service. The noise level was a little high probably due to the completion of a gymnastics event. The drinks are wonderful. Love the open feel of the place.

    Have eaten dinner here several times pre-Geffen theater. We park in Westwood near the theater then walk the easy 10 minutes to the Luskin Cinderence Center where Plateia is located. Last night we were seated indoors at the far north side of the restaurant. Very different ambiance and it felt more like a breakfast area of a hotel, especially with the doors to the buffet area kept propped open where we could see into. Food was excellent as always. We really enjoyed the seasonal burrita and kabocha starter to share. Interesting and delicious flavors. We enjoyed our gem salad with chicken and the sea bass. Complementary chocolate dipped strawberries for Valentines Day were a lovely touch and just enough of a bite of sweet to end the meal. Next time I eat there I will request eating outdoors (weather permitting) or closer to the bar and greeter station for a quieter and more elegant dining g experience.

    Delicious food. The pizza and salads are my favorite French fries were delicious too. Great cocktails and a good selection of wines by the glass and beers. Service was great, but the food did take a little while to come out, so maybe make sure you have time for a meal if you go to Plateia. The ambiance is great too. I love the outdoor patio, but the inside is nice too.

    Plateia is nothing if not reliably good. Sometimes great. Mostly good. It was refreshing to see a new menu last night but they have some more tweaking to do so that the food you order matches the food on the menu. The vongole was supposed to be cooked with crushed red pepper flakes. Those don't disappear or dissolve, so you'd think I'd see some in there. The result was a fairly bland vongole. There is a difference between a pudding and a cake. The amount of flour for example. What is listed as a pudding is a sticky toffee cake with perhaps persimmon added. When you have attentive service, Plateia is worth the non-optional gratuity (figured into the price of the food). But in our case, we spent a lot of time hoping someone would look at us or come over. And when someone did, they didn't really know the menu and seemed bothered by any request. In that case, it does not seem like a value to have the costs account for gratuity. We don't have a lot of options on campus. Would be nice if the one option we do have for formal dining be more consistently great and not just good.

    I booked the reservation for a work meeting. They showed up and were told there was no reservation. They had to wait to be accommodated and it cut into their meeting. I don't know where the mis-communication happened but it was not handled properly. The group felt like the staff was doing them a favor to fit them in.
