The restaurant was virtually empty at 1230 on a Saturday afternoon. One would expect the service to be overly attentive with such a paucity of diners, but no. We had to wait for a break in the staff’s conversation to order.

Even with the set menu, the food is over-priced for the quality and portion size.

I went for lunch with a vegan colleague and we both had lovely food ! Excellent presentation and delicious dishes. Service was good but for some reason we weren't offered any bread (other tables were) and the chairs really need a good clean/changing..apart from that, plateau is still one of my favourite restaurants in Canary Wharf!

My friend and I had a lovely time at Plateau. We had the 3 course set menu which came with a glass of wine. The superfood salad was fab as was my chicken. My friend had the pasta which she said was lovely too. The staff were attentive and very friendly and we had a very enjoyable evening.

We went pretty late in the evening in the weekday, so it was not busy at all, which made the experience great! Dinner at the table and the drinks plus desert in the terrace. It was lovely!

We were in the Grill Bar not the main restaurant. We were a party of 4. It was a shame that all the window seats were for tables of 2 only so really we could have booked any restaurant. The chairs were also a little uncomfortable and we were all quite pleased to get up at the end of the meal.

We ordered a bottle of sparkling water and a jug of still water but were brought bottles of both which seemed a little naughty.

Someone ordered veal for the main course but weren’t told that you needed to order sides. So they literally just had a plate of meat. I ordered tagliatelle and although it was really nice it has to be the smallest bowl of pasta I have ever seen. I have had larger starter portions. Very poor value.

We only ordered one dessert. A baked cheesecake. This is typically a very deep filled cheesecake but it was the same depth as one you would buy as a standard variety in a supermarket. I little disappointing.

Would I go back. Yes. I’ve pointed out the bits that could be better but overall we did have a really nice meal.

The staff were extremely professional, attentive and friendly, and really welcoming. The venue is lovely, a great view and the decor is very tasteful. It’s a shame the food was very average, and it did not add up to the ambience or price range. It was bland, except the fish cake which full of salt. I would go again for a drink but not for dinner.

Timing of bringing the food was poor, one dessert was brought out ten minutes before the other two and whilst I was eating the waiter leaned across my meal and the table to pour wine into someone else's glass (he could have walked around). The meal was nice, but overall I expected the service to be a little better.

I booked the restaurant for a birthday meal for myself and 3 friends... was a great choice.
Excellent value for money, a nice choice on a limited menu.
Food was great, good size portions beautifully presented.
Service was top notch - we had a fabulous waiter who didn't mind all the questions, and even joined in a rendition of Happy Birthday to me, when he presented me with a complimentary brownie at the end!
Highly recommended... we'll be back!

The location is amazing. We had a table near the window so the view was very good.
There is a set menu which is quite cheap. The quality of the food is very high, unluckily the portions weren’t particularly big.
I will go back.

Went with family for mother’s birthday and ordered the set spring menu. There was a group of office workers having drinks so it was quite loud. Service was good. Food was okay, nothing to rave about although one guest really disliked the duck risotto main.

Great views into Cabot square

The pea soup was great and good flavours. The fisherman’s pie very decadent and creamy. With chunks of fish and other fresh seafood.

Three of us all had 2 courses from the set menu. Starter and main. We all enjoyed it. First we were given a nice table in the bistro. The food was very good and good value. Two had the flat iron steak and chips which very popular and good portions. I had the chicken dish which was tasty and tender. Service was very good and friendly staff. All in all very enjoyable.

The food was not great. The service was extremely slow. It took an hour for the food to be served. We asked to have our dessert to take away because we had go back to work. They didn't have any take away boxes so they packed the desserts in aluminum foil.

We went to Plateau for a team lunch, 8 people, and ordered food straight away. The food was only served 1,5 hours later. My colleague who ordered a ‘medium well’ beef steak got her steak raw inside, she had to return it and also to cancel her dessert as we hat to return to work. My Thai red chicken curry was average, rice was over cooked. Beef tartar was good though.

Very slow service.

The restaurant is nice enough but very quiet on a Mon night! They had two nice but over zealous waiters who both kept coming up to our table. Probably because it was so quiet and they hadn’t much else to do. Our main waiter was obviously newly trained and was too attentive! We were trying to have a very sensitive conversation and he was at the table interrupting us every few mins. He was obviously enjoying his new job, which is all very good but these waiters also need to learn good service should be invisible.. i.e. on hand when you need them and not when you don’t. I could understand if it was busy but it was so quiet, if we needed them it would have been so easy to get their attention. Also, I did say several times, ‘we will call you over if we need you, thank you’. Another point is when clearing the table the two waiters could have come together and done it in 1 visit, instead they visited 3times.
At the end of the night, the other waiter even came to the table to clear the cocktail menu! Why? Could this not have waited until we left?
Such a shame as the food was good. Small potions though and ingredients not on the menu such as; the veg with my pork belly was not named and it did not stipulate chilli! Which I can’t eat so had to pick out. My friend had the salmon which just said ‘in a caper butter’ and yet came out on a bed of orzo risotto which I would have ordered had the menu stipulated this.
I say all this as constructive criticism and hope it can be helpful to improve what could be a really fantastic place to eat.

It was on 14 of February, my boyfriend and I ate a fish (cod), steak (rare), drunk a bottle of wine and took starters. All was exellent. After all, the waiter presented to us compliment from the chef - a small pice of chocolate cake. It was so cute. By the way, the view was fantastic as well. Thank you so much.
