Diner Reviews
  • "Plateau is just lovely for a get together after work. Lovely food, lovely service and lovely atmosphere."
    dined on 19/08/2014
  • "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"

  • "we had the evening standard menu everything was excellent, really good value, fantastic setting, all staff most helpful and courteous,"
    dined on 16/08/2014
  • "Great atmosphere and friendly service. Food was delicious but very rich and salty."
    dined on 15/08/2014
  • "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."
    dined on 13/08/2014
  • "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."
    dined on 01/08/2014
  • "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."
    dined on 01/08/2014
  • "Love the place, the food was very good. Just be aware it is a business place mainly so let the shorts and sandals behind you."
    dined on 31/07/2014
  • "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."
    dined on 29/07/2014
  • "My friend and I had a lovely Saturday lunch here. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. The set price lunch with free flowing bubbles was terrific value."
    dined on 26/07/2014
  • "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."
    dined on 22/07/2014
  • "Went for lunch with colleagues and had the 2 course set menu. Food and service was excellent. We'll be back"
    dined on 21/07/2014

    dined on 19/07/2014
  • "I dined at Plateau for a girls night out and we had a very nice experience. The food was delicious and great value. The wait for our food was a little slow but it was a busy Friday night so this can be forgiven. Would definitely return. Thanks."
    dined on 18/07/2014
  • "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)."
    dined on 16/07/2014
  • "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!"
    dined on 16/07/2014
  • "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."
    dined on 11/07/2014
  • "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."
    dined on 09/07/2014
  • "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!"
    dined on 04/07/2014
  • "Good food and service as ever. Reasonable prices, no complaints."
    dined on 04/07/2014

    dined on 27/06/2014
  • "Although booked in early for a saturday evening the food was top quality, service was quick with friendly staff and all in all had a lovely meal. Will be visiting again soon."
    dined on 21/06/2014
  • "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."
    dined on 21/06/2014
  • "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."
    dined on 19/06/2014
  • "Excelled meal and such good value. Staff charming and so friendly."
    dined on 16/06/2014

  • " I have been to this restaurant many Times and they never fail Fantastic A++++ I will be back"
    dined on 11/06/2014
  • "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."
    dined on 10/06/2014
  • "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."
    dined on 10/06/2014
  • "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!"
    dined on 29/05/2014
  • "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. "
    dined on 24/05/2014
  • "Good food and service. The sea bream main course was of a high standard. Will return."
    dined on 19/05/2014
  • "We all enjoyed my evening celebrating my birthday at the Plateau Bar & Grill. Excellent value. Friendly and welcoming staff. Certainly hope to go again Loved the fish pie.."
    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."
