Another great dinner at PLANTA! July specials were fun and tasty: peachy Palmer could be a bit sweeter or have more lemonade though & s’more pie was the perfect size and flavorful. Happy hour fire cracker wings and Nashville hot bao buns were also a great treat, might be worth adding to the main menu! Mushroom bao were fantastic as always. Vodka pizza is good, but missing something, maybe a texture or something because it is really all sauce. Flavors are great, but it’s very soft. Carbonara yummy as ever 10/10. Biggest positive of the night? Our server Miles. He was kind, informative and showed he really cared about making our experience enjoyable. Kuddos to you Miles, we will of course be back thanks to you!

Food was okay my chicken tenders were cold/lukewarm and very dry hard to chew I was disappointed with that …tasted like it was sitting around for a while the sauce was great. The biscuits and eggs were amazing I will stick to that next time. My gf loved the bacon egg and cheese biscuit and the coffee and drinks were very good!I think it was a rum punch that was the favorite.

The quiche and salad was excellent. Glad to see this Java Nation branch doing well and building clientele. We ate indoors, but look forward to eating outside when the weather permits.

Overall Service was Awesome, although 4 of my guest ordered the Fried Chicken and waffle/french toast and rated the fried chicken poor. It was stated no flavor at all. It was a waste of their money. However, we joyed the Ambience and the waiter. Thank you
