Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "Had 3 courses and a glass of Pimms for £20. Enough variety on the menu and great quality food too. Nice relaxed pace for lunch, and a great view too. Classy, but relaxed."

  • "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!"

  • "Had a very enjoyable meal and drinks at Plateau. Table was booked by the window for my husbands birthday. Beforehand we all sat on the outside terrace for a few drinks. Service was great and we were not rushed to our table. The food was delicious and is highly recommended in my opinion. Overall a very enjoyable experience and will definitely be returning."

  • "We had a great view of the park across the street...........the service was very good and our food excellent. We would definitely go back. It was close enough to have dinner before the concert at the O2. Very convenient."
    dined on 21/06/2014
  • "Although the food and service was good, the restaurant was quite chilly which meant that my guests were not inclined to remove their jackets and feel relaxed."

  • "Business lunch. We were shown to the covered terrace, which was lovely. The service was pretty bad though. We waited about 20 mins for just our water, and had to ask twice. I was advised they would bring me some gluten freen bread - it never appeared. ( They didn't seem very knowledgable about being gluten free which was dissapointing as even a cheap high street chain now has a GF menu marked up ). The food took AGES and we over ran by 30 mins. We had to chase the food order and it was awkward. On a busy day I can usually forgive the poor service. But as a Wharf based restaurant, which wasn't even half full, I had definately expected a lot more. I'd be willing to give them the benefit and try again, but won't be rushing back."

  • "The steak ordered by my friend is not as juicy and fresh as she expected. She wouldn't recommend to us. I ordered fish which is ok. Environment is nice for us to catch up."

  • "As a regular at the Plateau I found them becoming complacent over the past couple of years until today. They seemed to have a new chef which has vastly improved the food some of us chose a value for money 2-course menu - the Waitress "Gabby " remembered us and all our drink preferences she is brilliant - and very professional nothing is too much trouble the service she provides is first class. We sat in the newly decked out 'outdoor' space for (smokers) which has an effective Astroturf floor and loosely covered canvass roof as it was a mild day. It was my Sister's Birthday which was acknowledged with a celebratory glass of Champagne for our party, Its nice looking down on the great view of Canada Sq all-in-all a great day!"

  • "If you think that city dining, with views of Canary Wharf and the surrounding buildings, is just for the rich bank boys, think again! Plateau has consistently brought style, great food and service and, of course, amazing views! Although part of a bigger group, Plateau feels unique - mostly because it is! The team that meet and great you, the waiting staff, the rather handsome bar and cocktail staff and then the VERY gorgeous food makes for a unique experience. And here's the best bit..... It won't cost you the earth! Bar and Grill menu is amazing value and very varied. The restaurant has a wider choice and can be more pricey, but worth it for the really special events or nights. Either way, this one's a winner!"
    dined on 26/05/2014
  • "I enjoyed a lovely lunch on Saturday. The food and wine was outstanding, service great and atmosphere fantastic. They had a DJ playing music in the background which added to lively/buzzy atmosphere. We spent the whole afternoon here as we were enjoying ourselves that much. Would definitely return and recommend."
    dined on 24/05/2014
  • "I wanted to take my parents to Plateau to celebrate my Mother's 70th Birthday as I've had some good meals from them in the past. I was wary that they were out of our price range but I was able to take advantage of the special Saturday lunchtime offer they were running for 3 courses for £35 and limitless prosecco. I had asked for a window view table and all my expectations were heeded. It was a stunning occasion. The view below, the food, service and general ambience (not to mention the weather) all went towards giving my mum a special memory to cherish. The restaurant also arranged for a special Birthday surprise which was much appreciated by the whole family. I will certainly recommend Plateau regardless of any offers they run. "

  • "Good food and service. The sea bream main course was of a high standard. Will return."

    dined on 17/05/2014
  • "Booked a lunch on a Saturday in May as Plateau are having a special offer of (unlimited) Prosecco with a 2 or 3 course set menu. We probably had 2 glass of the fizzy stuff each which was a nice bonus. The food was fine but nothing outstanding. The first courses were smallish salads mainly or soup. I had the palma ham and mozzarella with a few rocket leaves. Main course was a burger which was fine. Hubbie had a steak and asked for well done but it was more like medium rare. Desserts were fine also but not terribly imaginative. Service was very good. Lovely day so sat in outside courtyard but a little spoilt by chain smokers beside us which was a shame as courtyard is a lovely spot. Would recommend- go early as stop serving bubbles at 3.30."
    dined on 17/05/2014
  • "The offer of free flowing bubbles was lovely - the menu was great for a meat eater, but the vegetarian main wasn't as yummy as I'd hoped. But it was still wonderful. Service was great! "
    dined on 17/05/2014
  • "The food is always well presented at The Plateau but we had slightly disappointing main courses. However, the service made up for it as the extremely attentive waitress was keen to make sure we had a good experience and gave us a discount."
    dined on 16/05/2014
  • "Starters and mains were excellent although you have to order sides as extra's which dininishes the value of the meal, but generally very good. The dessert was disappointing - the almond tart was rock hard and was sent back as could not face a dental bill. Vast wine list but wines in the lower end of the price bracket (£25 to £35) poor value. I have tasted better for cheaper."
    dined on 07/05/2014
  • "Came here for a business lunch, nice setting, prompt service. Would recommend for other business lunches for sure."

  • "we really enjoyed our meal at plateau, it was a quiet evening with a nice view by the window food arrived very promptly was very nicely cooked and presented, nothing was to much trouble for the staff who are very friendly and polite without being intrusive, and desert was as usual stupendous "
    dined on 19/04/2014
  • "I have been at Plateau 3 times so far and I must say that their a la carte dishes are far superior to their set menu. In generally Plateau offers a nice atmosphere with a good view of Canary Wharf. But the sound vibrations are very strong in the restaurant so it always feels very loud in there. Apart from those two points, Plateau is generally a good choice for a lunch or an after work meal. The fact that the restaurant always feels loud inside makes it less suitable for romantic meals."
    dined on 16/04/2014
  • "Great views, great service but my steak was not fresh which is a shame as the rest of the meal was tremendous."
    dined on 08/04/2014
  • "The Bar and Grill never reaches the heights of culinary excellence that its big sister does, but still lives up to Plateau's good name, offers great views of Canary Wharf and is good value: only slightly more expensive than premium pub food. My fiancée was delighted with the potato and leek soup and my starter of duck egg and asparagus was so perfectly seasoned it felt like a full meal in itself. Our mains were a superb duck confit and the newly-introduced (?) triple pork burger. The duck was beautifully cooked, and the pork burger was delicious, multi-textured and generous (though perhaps not subtle enough by Plateau's standards). We were too full in the end to try dessert, which is a shame as the blood orange ice cream looked wonderful."
