We enjoyed a wonderful evening at the Plaza Bistro. The food was excellent. The ambiance was elegant, lively, and yet serene. The service was excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner experience.-Cath

Excellent restaurant. We cancelled our reservation the second night at another restaurant in the square and went back the second evening. Highly recommended, ask for a table overlooking the square.

It was a nice and sunny day so we sat outside. We had a great time people watching. We both had the salmon sandwich and the staff was perfectly happy to make substitutions on our order. We will definitely go back.

Excellent as always! I had Osso Bucco, husband had steak, and both were tender, flavorful, and beautifully executed. Started with the delicious beet salad, ended with their perfect creme brûlée and the amazing mascarpone crepes.
Our go-to spot for special occasions did not disappoint!
We've also come here for brunch and lunch and Thanksgiving-- consistently excellent food and service, and you can actually have a conversation.

Nice service. Food solidly average with smallish portions. Ambience lacking with most tables near bar, kitchen or entrance door which in winter allows for frequent blasts of cold air.

Booked at the last minute for Christmas dinner with my daughter. Pleasantly surprised the dinner was delicious with everyday menu & prices. I expected the menu prices to be high due to holiday dining but it was not. Extra kudos to Plaza Bistro for being community minded considering we are still recovering from the devastating fires of 10/2017. The atmosphere was pleasing, the waiters very attentive.

Have eaten at the Plaza Bistro a few times. Always good and fresh food. Service is good. Can fit for a dressy night out by sitting in the back formal dining room, or can be more casual with seating outside or in the front room. I always leave happy and never feel I have overpaid.

Come expecting a generic bar and grill and you'll be ok. Food is ok, not bad, but not memorable either. This wouldn't be my first choice, but it isn't a bad option.

Plaza Bistro was good, it had the misfortune of being our selection on the hottest day (110 degrees) ever. So eating was not a major endeavor, drinking was. They kept our glasses full and we were able to enjoy a nice evening with our friends.
We will certainly go there again as the food we did order, steaks, risotto and pasta were good just cumbersome.

Don't go hungry! Portions were really small, food was tasty enough. It was weird that my husband and I were the only 2 in the restaurant at 7pm on a Sunday night!
