What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
8.3

Plateau is an upscale fine dining restaurant in Canada Place with a nice view over the main square and flawless modern French cuisine.

Ratings 8.0-8.5:The best way to think about restaurants in the low to mid 8′s is that these are the places you would absolutely go back to, anytime. These restaurants are ones that you want to bring a friend to, just so they can also experience the duck carnitas, or burger, or whatever dish the place is known for.

My only criticism is the lack of English wines on the wine list and (not the restaurant's fault) some rather annoying children on the next table - surely parents can take them to MacDonald's and not ruin everyone else's evening!

Met a business contact for a midweek lunch. Excellent food - very well presented dishes and good value. Busy restaurant over lunch and restaurant emptied by 3pm. Due to location expect loads of business suits. Noise levels were fine for conversation. Staff very polite and well presented.

Food was average and service was poor, had the tasting menu for the 4th time at this place and it’s got worse every time (Honey menu was last last good experience). Service was slow and staff didn’t even explain what I was eating, took service charge off at the end as £20 wasn’t deserved. If I was to go again it would be Set menu only, as wouldn’t want to spend more than £30pp here. Finally opentable was out of sync so I had to pay more for a new menu.

The restaurant is well located with a view of Canary Wharf, we had the lunch menu which was good value for money and the food was excellent However, the only irritation was we ordered two Coke Zeros (cost £6) and we both got a small glass (max 200ml) filled with ice and some coke - we estimated we were paying at least £30 per litre which is appaling!!!!! You felt they were trying to make money on a soft drink - bad form.

Sadly the food was served lukewarm. Service was very good with the serving staff very attentive. Whilst the the food was adequate it was served at best lukewarm and in my view overly expensive.

I have visited Plateau many times over the years and it has always been one of my favorites, but this visit was absolutely perfect.

The food was excellent. Staff were attentive to just the right degree. The ambience let the side down - I couldn't in all honesty recommend to a friend without a caveat. Heated by the evening sun the restaurant area was too warm and any air/con ineffective, the glare of the sun made it uncomfortable for those facing it. In addition, the restaurant area is 'bright' for sound, so a noisy party on a nearby table were very intrusive - one girl in particular had a laugh that was not funny in itself at all. Pity they couldn't have been seated in a side room. But none of that is the fault of the staff or within their ability to correct. The Bar and Grill area was quieter when we exited - we didn't dally and skipped dessert and coffee, but who is to say what you'd find on another evening? So overall - excellent food spoiled by other factors.
