Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "WE love this place and it is full of life. ambiance is great, service very attentive. With evening standard meal offer it is great value. WE just come back from France and been to south in July, and North in Aug, this place brings us good memory of France . Will be back >>>>>"

  • "the staff are quite exceptional and made the entire evening special. They could not have done more to support the disabled guest to ensure they had the same comfort as others in the party."
    dined on 27/08/2014
  • "My partner and I visited The Plateau, on a busy Friday in August, 2014, and sampled the Menu Gourmand , with wine. The moment we arrived the level of service and attention we received truly made us feel special and very welcomed. Our waiter Peitro was amazing and made us feel like the only couple in the restaurant, despite a busy, ambient atmosphere. Equally, the wine paired with each dish was absolutely lovely as was each explanation of why the wine had been chosen to accompany each dish. Not only was the wine amazing - so was the food, in all 6 course, we would both highly recommend the restaurant to anyone wanting to experience great food and wine coupled with outstanding levels of service."

  • "The food was excellent. We had the ES menu and at 30 £ incl. a glass of champagne it was great value. Service was attentive yet friendly and relaxed. The views of Canary Wharf are spectacular."

  • "Beautiful setting and atmosphere. Friendly staff made you feel extremely relaxed. Food was lovely and filling. A lovely venue for any occasion."
    dined on 16/08/2014
  • "This is a good place for a business lunch which requires discretion and calm that cannot be catered for by a closely packed noise venue. The food is very good, service unobtrusive and turnaround time is quick."
    dined on 14/08/2014
  • "Just one of the nicest restaurants - the staff are wonderful and always make a point of coming up to say hello and always pleased to see one. The Evening Standard menu is such good value and the champagne particularly good this time! Don't miss this wonderful opportunity for fine dining at a very reasonable price. One of the party said his pudding was the best ever!"
    dined on 11/08/2014
  • "We always ask for the set menu - as well as making it easier to choose, it offers excellent value for a very enjoyable evening in nice surroundings. The food was not OTT but well executed and good balance of flavours."
    dined on 09/08/2014
  • "Another box ticked on my wife's bucket list. As it was so good we will be returning again and again. Waiting staff were very attentive to all our needs. The food was excellent. The atmosphere in the Garden area was brilliant, spacious and delightfully decorated. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone."
    dined on 09/08/2014
  • "Had the Taster menu, with matching wine option, and simply put, it was excellent!!! It's not cheap, but well worth it for a special occasion. All six courses were really good, but the risotto and the beef were superb. Some really good wine choices throughout the evening."
    dined on 07/08/2014
  • "Went here on a Friday night celebrating a birthday with 2 girlfriends. We had the ES special menu that was 3 courses plus a glass on bubbly for £30, that was great value for money. All the staff were superb - individual, knowledgeable & explained the menu, without intruding on conversation. The food was excellent, the decor is cool, but the special mention has to be for the staff that really go way beyond the standard to deliver a good experience. The waiter was superb, professional, but such fun! And brought a cupcake with a candle for the b'day girl! I've come here for business lunch before and was concerned that a Friday night may be lifeless and empty - this isn't the case and the restaurant was still buzzing when we left at 10.30pm."
    dined on 01/08/2014
  • "Lovely restaurant with good choice of vegetarian dishes and very attentive waiters. We sat outside on the terrace surrounded by lots of plants which made the dining experience very pleasurable. Good views of Canary Wharf from the restaurant. All in all, would definitely recommend."

  • "I went to this restaurant for a business discussion. We were booked at 8.15pm and were welcomed on arrival and shown to our seat immediately. The waiter was attentive (in fact too attentive, hence the 3 stars for service). The food was very good, we chose a lebanese red wine which was full bodied and easy to drink (appearently a new addition to the wine list). As it was a late meal and a Tuesday, the restaurant was not full, but there was a nice buzz to it. Although we weren't in a window seat, you could still see the view across Canary Wharf. As far as service is concerned, everything turned up quickly and was well presented. I just wish the waiter did not keep coming back to check everything was ok."
    dined on 28/07/2014
  • "I took my partner to Plateau for a surprise dinner and was very impressed with the decor, food but most importantly the service. We had a beautiful meal at a fantastic table that over looked Canada Sqare Park. But everyone was so incredibly friendly and helpful - our waiters really did make the night for us. Highly recommend."
    dined on 26/07/2014
  • "Had the four course set meal for £30. Was good value and the food was fantastic. Ate outside on the glassed-in balcony which was beautiful on a balmy evening. Only slight negative was that some of the accents of the staff were very difficult to understand."
    dined on 26/07/2014
  • "The place is a little geared towards businesspeople, not surprising given its excellent location in Canary Wharf. However, no matter what you're going there for, the food (and wine) is excellent, the staff attentive but not pushy and the ambience truly special. Would definitely recommend it again, and their lunchtime menu is very good value considering the high quality of their fare."
    dined on 21/07/2014
  • "My partner and I enjoyed the 4 course set meal and found the food and overall experience to be very good. It could have been better however if the environment had been significantly quieter (although, that was a result of other patrons). The dining experience would have been a little more enjoyable if we hadn't been subjected to the 'over-friendly' service staff we had that night. I work in silver service and have experienced it elsewhere, although others may enjoy this friendly and personal service, I am much more used to a very professional and formal service in such an environment."
    dined on 19/07/2014
  • "The staff were attentive, but sometime too much so. They kept forcing water and wine on us, presumably so that the bill would be higher, but we were already spending a lot of money in a group of six. The food was very well prepared but this way of trying to push us into spending more rather spoilt the experience.."
    dined on 19/07/2014
  • "I just had my wedding anniversary dinner and everything, from the minute we walked in till the time we leave, was exceptional. The food and the service was flawless!"
    dined on 17/07/2014
  • "We went as the sun was setting and it provided a beautiful light in the restaurant with a view over Canary Wharf. Was there to celebrate my graduation & I think it was the perfect restaurant for it!"
    dined on 17/07/2014
  • "Staying at the Hilton Canary Wharf for a weekend trip (O2 arena visit), we wanted to have dinner in the area on our night off. Plateau seemed like a good deal (only 30 pounds for 4 courses and 1 glass of sparkling wine). And it turned out to be a great choice. Although only half full (was to be expected on a Saturday night in this area), the ambience was good and lively. Staff was professional, friendly and the menu was even better than expected (always a bit cautious of "deals" in big city restaurants...). We got in at 8pm and left after 11pm - so me and my wife had a great night out. Not hasty (like you would have in the central LDN where they would do at least 2 or 3 couverts per night per table), decent food and good service."
    dined on 12/07/2014
  • "Cool cocktail menu. Old fashioned was missing some fruit peel bit that's just me being a snob. Good value 4 course deal - all very nice. Favourite was the dessert of salted caramel/chocolate torte/honeycomb. Staff polite and attentive. Restaurant area very light, spacious and with big windows out onto Cabot square."
    dined on 30/06/2014
  • "Great meal. Great service. Nicely paced. Attentive unobtrusive service. Set menu delightful. Suggested it to visiting friends and they thoroughly enjoyed it"
    dined on 28/06/2014
  • "Attentive without feeling overwhelmed or intrusive, welcoming & nothing is ever too much trouble."
    dined on 26/06/2014
  • "I visit this restaurant several times a year and am always impressed at how they maintain a high standard of cooking and excellent service. Had the set menu which had great choices and delivered on the flavours. As always, the service is impressive and better than most michelin-starred west end restaurants. Will definitely be back."
    dined on 26/06/2014
  • "This was my first visit to Plateau, - But it definitely won't be my last. The location is spectacular, overlooking Canary Wharf and Canada Square Park, with floor to ceiling windows all round letting you enjoy the view. I'd booked on the fab terrace, with the astroturf grassy lawn, the beautiful fresh air from the open roof, (and the protection of the glass windows and canopy, in case the British weather doesn't play ball). Impeccable service, and an exquisite four course dinner, - it's really difficult to fault. Highly recommended!"
    dined on 24/06/2014
  • "My fiancée and I booked Plateau for a date, taking advantage of the 4 courses & sparkling wine offer. We were struck by the courtesy of the Plateau staff. They accommodated dietary requirements as well as preferences: we could not resist the gazpacho, which was delightfully juicy and only slightly sweet! We had fish: the cod with beans and chorizo tasted heartwarming and robust, and the silver mullet with olive pate and salad was delightfully tangy and meaty. After an interlude of truffled cheese (welcome at the time but not memorable now) came dessert. Chocolate honeycomb cheesecake with coffee ice cream and lemon tart with raspberry sorbet - both beautifully balanced desserts, although one notch less spectacular than the mains."
    dined on 20/06/2014
  • "We visited the restaurant on Fri 22 June at 6pm party of 4. We were greeted warmly they took our coats and asked if we wanted to wait at the bar or go straight to our table. We opted to go to our table. Each bar staff and waiter greeted us which was so nice. We had the set menu and it was superb. I especially loved the sea bas starter and the pork belly main course. Compliments to the chef. The ambience was beautiful and view was great! We loved the different areas which catered to different dinners casual or more formal. A special thanks went to our waiter Samuel who was extremly knowledgeable and efficient. He was also very flexible and made the whole dinning experience a joy - 10/10 for service.I highly recommend this restaurant."
    dined on 20/06/2014
  • "We had a table near the window, as we had requested. Waiting staff were very attentive, without being intrusive. Food delicious."
    dined on 19/06/2014
  • "We had my son who was 10 with us and we were all catered for extremely well. Staff were attentive and knowledgeable about the dishes and wine. The restaurant was bright and airy the only issue which was minor was the sun streaming in through the wall to ceiling glass windows however due to surrounding buildings it moved quite quickly. All in all lovely food lovely experience for an early Father's Day meal."
    dined on 14/06/2014
  • "I booked with Plateau because the reviews were more appealing, and I really liked the ambience that the photos showed (not to mention that amazing view!). It had a very metropolitan city feel, which was perfect for my idea for my boyfriend's surprise. We had the 4-course menu with the champagne - a great offer, and everything was delicious. For our main courses, I had the Coq au Vin and he had the pork - I highly recommend both. They gave us mini desserts in addition to the menu's desserts, which was a nice touch. Service was impeccable. Daniele and Pietro were particularly accommodating and charming, and the wines suggested by the female sommelier were perfect. We had the perfect evening, and we hope to visit again soon!"
    dined on 07/06/2014
  • "Visited Plateau twice now - once for a Saturday late lunch, making use of their bottomless Prosecco offer with a group of friends, and most recently a Friday evening date, and both times it's delivered. The food is uncomplicated and tastes great, there is a wide range of wines to choose from, a few reasonably priced and many more that are rather expensive."
    dined on 06/06/2014
  • "The food and value for money was OK'ish but the service was great. Pietro, our waiter, was hilarious and made some good recommendations."
    dined on 06/06/2014
  • "We (3 ladies) booked the Plateau Restaurant and went for the 3 course set menu. The menu was varied and did not disappoint. I had the ham hock to start and the cod as my main course. The cod was just devine! I do not eat chocolate and they offerred me an alternative dessert which The service was attentive but not intrusive and sitting outside in the balcony area was great. We are looking forward to visiting again next month"
    dined on 06/06/2014
  • "Fantastic setting over looking Canary Wharf. The service exceptional, the food divine. They look like small portions but at the end of the meal your full. And the tastes heavenly. Wine a bit on the pricey side but the staff do know which wines go best with what. "
    dined on 05/06/2014
  • "The staff and service at Plateau is simply the best, most friendly and most professional of any we have experienced in London. The food is fantastic and matches the service. Having lived in Canary Wharf almost since the first tower went up we have seen the area change dramatically. Plateau has been consistently the best restaurant. Noticeably over the last two years the service and staff have reached new heights and even though many new restaurants have opened up it remains leagues ahead of the competition. The fact that on each visit all of the same familiar friendly faces await you and remember you is testament to the staff and management at Plateau. Their greetings are warm and genuine. Our most recent visit on the 5th June was a joy."
    dined on 05/06/2014
  • "The Plateau never fails me. Every time a take a Plateau "Virgin" they impress - table by the window with impressive views, wonderful service by waiters who are efficient but warm with a sense of humour and food always interesting."
