    Very nice surroundings, with excellent view across Canada Square and the glass roof. The food was of high quality and prices reasonable, especially for drinks. Children catered for well and I certainly recommend for a special occasion.

    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.

    Dined on 25/10/2014
    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.

    £30 for 4 courses and a glass of champagne was excellent. All courses were well proportioned and very tasty - only complaint was that some dishes were flavoured a little strongly i.e. too sweet or salty. All in all, excellent and would come again.

    Booked an early dinner to take a client out. Service was really good, maybe even too good. 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! Would recommend for a date night, business meal or even for a group of friends.

    We booked this as we were staying in canary wharf but didn't want a chain restaurant. We went with our 16yr old son who thoroughly the ambience and buzz of the experience. Staff were very friendly,helpful and service was excellent. We had menu of the day,3 courses for ££30 which was oustanding value and food was delicious esp cod,anguinea fowl. Would def return if in area again.

    The food service and location (ie the view!) make this place great for a business lunch or catching up with friends in Canary Wharf The food is imaginative and made from great seasonal ingredients and the service is attentive without being intrusive. The bread is great so stop the carb denial and have some - its worth it !

    Really nice place in Canary Wharf surrounded by a business atmosphere where you can have a drink or enjoy a special occasion in a private and romantic venue. Service was friendly and made us feel like being in an informal environment in a nice way. I recently went there for my girlfriend's birthday and it was a really nice evening!:) I 'll definitely recommend it!

    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.

    Dined on 11/10/2014
    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.

    Dined on 7/10/2014
    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!

    Had a lovely dinner at Plateau. Found it by looking for restaurants with a view. Unfortunately, we were placed behind a very large pillar and not much too look at. Good ambience, delicious food, tasty wine. Luca, our host for the evening, most personable, as was the wine man and an other gentleman. There was some confusion when our mains came out, the wrong dishes and side of veg. No big deal to us, but they felt badly and made it up to us on the bill. They obviously care about the service. It was a simple mistake. Will definitely go back, but will request a table near the window and finally get to enjoy the sight!

    I booked a table at the Plateau restaurant for our 2 years wedding anniversary. It was MAGICAL and ROMANTIC! We had a great table with a magnificent view in the heart of Canary Wharf. The drinks, the food were excellent - my compliments to the chef! But what made our night so perfect was the service! Very attentive personnel. They took amazing care of us - making sure we had everything we needed. And at the end of our meal they came to us with a very touching gift to congratulate us on our anniversary - a delicious cupcake and a candle. I was soooo happy and moved. It was a real surprise. Thank you again for the perfect dinner and your kindness. I will never forget this night. :) We will come back again, again and again!

    My husband has had several jobs in Canary Wharf and had been to Plateau previously with business associates. Finally,after,ten years of asking,he brought me along too. It is a very sizeable restaurant with a large,comfortable bar area. We were dining on the toptable deal which provided 4 courses and a glass of sparkling wine for £30. My mushroom soup,or veloute as posh people like to call it,was really delicious as was my pasta main course. I was a little disappointed in the dessert as it was a rather dry pear tart which would have been nicer served a bit warmer. Our waiter for the evening, Daniele,was excellent. He was very charming and friendly.

    My daughter and I went to the restaurant for lunch to celebrate her birthday. The food was delicious and the service impeccable and unassuming. We were left to eat at our own pace - taking over 2 hours - and at no time did we feel any pressure to hurry or vacate our table. The complimentary cupcake and candle was an added special touch. I would highly recommend it.
