    We attended as a party of 4 on a Thursday evening . We were all very pleased with the experience. Decent sized portions cooked, dressed and presented well. Nicely complementing tastes and flavours. A very comprehensive drinks menu. The house white was, well a house white, but the New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc was very acceptable. Some of the cocktails were a little off the wall and it did seem that some of the flavours were a little 'thin' Atmosphere was lively without being too intrusive and the service was generally excellent, although our waitress did not know what an Affogato was, but hey, everybody has to learn. Very happy to recommend this as a mid week casual dining experience.

    The setting here is as equally impressive as the main restaurant and the Bar & Grill offers excellent value with a good deal of choice. There were quite reasonably priced wines available here and the overall bill compared very favourable to the meal I enjoyed in the restaurant 1 week previously.

    Booked the OpenTable deal of 2 courses and a glass of wine for £15, which was incredibly good value. The food and wine were delicious and the restaurant settling is lovely.

    Not sure what happened this time but my fish chips batter was like that on a corn dog at a county fair. Chips were forgettable. My colleagues' meals were equally underwhelming. Setting and atmosphere is great, but I expected more from the food.

    I went here with the girls I was impressed with the food on the set menu and pleased with the value when it came with house red wine. Unfortunately we was not pleased with the cocktails which costed £9.50 plus the portion and taste was not what we seemed but other all good the place has a lovely feel and view

    I joined the Plateau Grill for dinner and the service was really nice, very friendly. The food was delicious and good value for the money. I like that there are various different areas in the space so that everyone can find the most suitable place (e.g. Bar, Restaurant, Grill, Outdoor dining area etc.)

    We used the two courses for £15 with a glass of wine offer. The food was lovely and I would go back again for that meal and happily pay full price. We also ordered some side dishes from the main menu, and also had a few cocktails. Iv only given two stars overall as the service really let our experience down. We were sat down for almost 15 minutes before anyone came to give us a drink, but she didn't take an actual drink order, she just offered us water. It was another ten minutes before the water came, and a further 5 before a drinks order was actually taken. This only bothered me so much because I had specified on my booking it was a birthday meal. I paid my service charge but did not leave a tip. the restaurant wasn't busy

    On the plus side, the food is good and the service attentive. The wrong dish was brought for the starter but this was quickly rectified. The Evening Standard menu offered a good choice and the wine list had a good range including lower-priced ones. On the negative side, the drinks from the bar were overpriced and the restaurant was extremely noisy. But overall, a good experience.

    We booked a table for dinner with the specific request of sitting outside in the balcony. However, when we turned up, the staff told us that we cannot dine outside. So we went out for a few drinks. When they came and remind us about the table for dinner and we asked again if we can eat, to which they replied they would check. They came back with a negative answer. However, since we saw the table next to us had tood, we asked someone else again, who said we can. Then we asked him to double check if that's the case as we were told otherwise. He assured that we could....=> this whole internally policy is not be well communicated between staff was a bit drawback for the standard of service. Not at all expected as being a regular there.

    Bit disappointing today steak was over-seasoned then replacement steak was like old rubber - Waitress was under pressure therefore waiting time for drinks and food was lengthy and people had to go back to work - But the 'complained about' food was removed from the bill.

    we had a lovely dinner for two, and the staff couldn't have been more gracious. The dining deal was a good one, so we treated ourselves to yummy cocktails - pricey but worth it, considering we were saving elsewhere. Ask for the rosemary bread with butter, it is delicious. My only complaint was that the beans weren't cooked quite enough, in the chicken dish.

    Recently visited Plateau for a team lunch with colleagues, the staff were polite, charming and respectful. The food was incredible, I recommend the Ox Cheek! They have a great offer of 2 courses for £15 with a well sized glass of Pimms! Almost forgot to mention, the restaurant is situated at the top of the building with a fantastic view of One Canada Square and the surrounding area.

    I've been here before with a friend and thought I would come back again. They ran out of the salted caramel ice cream and tart which I was very upset about, but that just shows you how GOOD it is. I didn't like my main it had no flavour. In my opinion this place is great for drinks and dessert. Oh and I had the BEST waitress ever, I would seriously come back just for her, I think her name was Hanna (a Chinese lady).

    I often recommend this venue to colleagues and suppliers for business lunches. The food is always delicious (I've never had a bad dish at Plateau!) and perfectly sized so that you can enjoy 3 x courses without feeling too bloated or full! If you're a group of lads with a huge appetite perhaps this wouldn't be the place to eat, but if you're looking for a restaurant with a varied menu, delicious(and sometimes unusual!) food, good service and is not too noisy then this is a great place to have a business lunch. I like the fact they offer the occasional set menus on special too i.e. 2 x courses and a PIMMS for £15 is a deal not to be missed!

    A thoroughly enjoyable experience from the moment we stepped in and were warmly greeted by the hostess. We had a drink at the bar first and were not rushed at all. Everyone was so friendly and genuine. Our cocktails were expertly made and a great warm up to the main event...the food! We went for the 2 course offer menu and were not disappointed. Presentation impeccable and the combination of flavours were delicious. The menu choices were comprehensive and good value for money. Add to that the slick, modern interior and impressive views and we had ourselves a very enjoyable date night! We will definitely be returning.

    Friday 4th July. I had dinner with a friend of mine using the 2 courses for £15 offer and yet we were treated as if we spent £100 per head. The waitress (tall lady with a bit of a European accent) was exceptional. She even had the bartender make me a mocktail as she saw I was pregnant. I would definitely be returning to eat here. 5 starts all round!
