    As usual going to this restaurant is a delight. Food scrumtious, service outstanding, ambience stunning, wine fantastic especially the champagne. We dined in the restaurant, but the Bar and Grill are equally fantastic. The staff, the Manager, the initial greeters are all of such a fantastic standard, courteous and very clean and exact. The facilities are fantastic and they even have two sheltered heated areas on terraces, simple gorgeous and I would highly recommend it to anyone. They have great al-a-carte, but they also have a set tasting menu with wine specific for each course, that is also an absolute delight.

    I took my friend here as a treat for her 40th birthday. The food was excellent, beautifully presented and with a good combination of flavours. We were recommended a reasonably priced wine, which was of excellent quality. The surroundings were stylish and very glamorous. The staff were extremely attentive without being fawning. Definitely one to be repeated.

    waiters were friendly and patient with us adding/loosing guests and being slow to order but food was pretty flavourless and unmemorable (e.g. pannacotta), undercooked (chicken) and salty (tomato bread). Overall, not value for money and would not choose to return - alot better restaurants in the area.

    Dined on 10/11/2014
    The 4-course meal for £30pp is an outrageously good offer. We had the pumpkin veloute to start, delicately but obviously spiced. My fiancée loved it even though she hates star anise. For our mains, my fiancée had the spare beef rib, a surprisingly generous portion that melted in the mouth. I had the seared gurnard (replaced on the day by another fish that was available fresh) with Jerusalem Artichoke and fennel, which was beautifully creamy and meaty. The cheese course was welcome and appropriately small. Desserts were extraordinary. My white chocolate tart was perhaps too rich and sweet, but the pairing with red berry sorbet was pure genius. My fiancée loved her milk chocolate mousse. Service exceeded our already high expectations.

    Myself and father were treated immensely well by Plateau staff. From the moment we stepped from the lift, we were made to feel at home. The food was very nice and the layout of the restaurant is great! Plenty of space in between tables to move around. I would recommend Plateau anytime - really good place!

  • Great Lunch at Canary Wharf
    Hailey123
    Dined on 4/11/2014
    Great Lunch at Canary Wharf. Had the set menu with wine per glass as recommmended on menu. As usual service was impeccable, and at just the right level of attentiveness. Great table at the window in the restaurant. Wine, starters and fish dish were great. My beef rib slightly disappointing. The oysters going out on other tables looked rather inviting! Any slight disappointment with some aspects of set lunch menu offset by general ambience. Must be the best spot in Canary Wharf for lunch - other than the HSBC boardroom?

    Ordered 6 course meal. Food was amazing service was excellent. Explained every course, beverage they served to us. The view is great although it is just 4th floor. Expect for a small slice of birthday cake or in house drink because usually restaurant they serve if you mention it is a Bday dinner on the booking. But overall is still fine, recommended

    Visited as birthday treat for partner. We were seated promptly and I opted for the four course set menu with him going for the steak. Food was fantastic and although there was a wait of about 35 minutes between the starter and main, the mushroom risotto was the best I've ever had. The steak I was told, was very good too. The prosecco was good quality and came free with my set menu.cocktails were also excellent. Service was a little slow and although every effort was made to be attentive, there were a couple of times where we had to ask for things twice. My partner received a complimentary dessert with a candle as I had called ahead to advise of his birthday. This didnt have his name on as I was told but was still fantastic. Would recommend!

    My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary at the Plateau. The service and food was excellent. I had asked for a nice table and although they were not able to offer us this at the beginning of our meal they offered to move us for the dessert, which was fine with us. They brought out a special surprise too with a piece of cake, candle and special message to congratulate us too. Would highly recommend this restaurant.

    Had the 6 course tasting menu. We felt the food was pretty good but the service was terribly slow. We were left without drinks for at least a half hour and had to chase up drinks and the bill. They automatically add 12.5% tip - I know we could have refused but doing so also ruins the mood so we left it. Would not return.

Could do with having more options for dinner, felt like menu was a little limited from what I saw online. Otherwise everything else was great!

    As a regular diner at Plateau I always get a great welcome and nothing is too much trouble. It is a delightful room to dine in and the menu always offers a good choice of very well executed dishes and as there is a new chef in place the menu is about to change which I look forward to seeing with interest! I had delicious home cured salmon to start and the excellent beef short ribs and pancetta to finish and my companion had the delicious (her words) mushroom veloutee to start, superb Guinea Fowl and chocolate cheese cake. Phew, we felt very well fed by the end. Do go as it is such good value and delicious food.

    We were a party of five who go regularly to Plateau, together or not, which has improved out of all recognition from three or four years ago, but on Saturday we felt like we had gone back in time. The food was OK but they had bulked up the small amounts of protein with too much potato or beans (depending on the dish). The service was appalling. It too ages to get our complimentary drink in the bar and the gaps between courses were too long. The restaurant wasn't full although there was a large private party there. There just didn't seem to be enough staff on duty. Pull your socks up, Plateau!

    This was the second time I've been to Plateau restaurant, was a bit disappointing with the service at the start. The staff handed out bread to one party member and then realise there was not enough for the rest of the party. Eventually bread came out, was disappointed to be given burnt baguette to eat. Service was a disappointment from my first visit, slow and difficult to get the attention of. Food wise, it was deliciously cooked and beautifully presented.

    Went for dinner on a Thursday evening - forgot Thursday is the new Saturday - so atmosphere very lively and loud.Not a problem really but you can't have a romantic meal and purr sweet nothings to your wife...Food is flavoursome and very good - wide choice and well priced, perhaps underpriced for the quality. Front desk staff are superb and charming and a special mention to Pietro who is an exceptional waiter - old school skills with old and new school charm. A lovely evening.

    they (the 3 girls in the front) left us waiting for 25+ minutes (by the bar) until I re-acted. jut to find out there where free tables in the restaurant area. it seems the tree girls in the front simply have forgotten about us. then one of them marched us to probably the worst table. which the excellent waiter promptly realised and replaced it to the very good one. I am very sorry this front room fiasco has happened just because we witnessed the very good service in the restaurant area. Still I can not accept that kind of disappointment in the restaurant where average bill for the dinner for two is 100+. We paid 115.

    We thought we would give canary wharf ago instead of dinning in the west end like normal. it was a last minute booking and decided to try it, we were put on a table near a noisy group of ten people continually on their phones, as we looked around we noticed there were quite a few dinners also using there phones. my starter of summer salad was a plate of mixed leaves with dressing, very disappointing. my main was fish which was ok, but there was quite a bit of oil on my plate, dessert was nice. my husband had cod for starter and said it tasted bland and again the portion was small, his main was guinea fowl and he was happy, dessert was cheesecake and it was good. as for the service you could not fault, they were attentive and helpful.

    Although I have been to Plauteau numerous times, I'm always somehow surprised at just how good the food and service are. Everyone from the excellent bar staff to the waiters and welcoming staff are outstanding and actually seem happy to be there; they remember your name (or drink) and it becomes a favourite after only a few visits. It's a great spot in the Wharf and although it's not cheap you still feel you've had value for what you experience there.

    I took a relative out for a special occassion (they were visiting London after 18 months). We ate from the speical offer 4 course menu menu which had an excellent selection at a very reasonable price. A glass of sparkling wine was also included. My guest also had a glass of Montepulciano along with the main course (suggested by the waiter) to go with the slow-cookd beef rib. The service was very friendly and they allowed us enough time to sort out our order and converse comfortably. I always enjoy dining at Plateau Restaurant. You can easily hear your companions speaking!
