First we had difficulties finding this place by the address on the reservation ticket only. Interior is nice although not something fancy. I did not like the service, the waiter was simply dropping stuff on the table with no word. The hostess was very nice and helpful. Waiter's service is precharged to the bill so I guess they see no reason to struggle. Food was good even pretty good. View is nothing special on the 4th level overseeing the office areas of the nearby buildings.

Whilst the food tasted good it wasn't presented to the standard I would expect in a restaurant of this standard. Service was somewhat chaotic. Were asked to sit at the bar on arrival and had to remind the hostess that we were there 30 minutes later as other guests were arriving and being taken straight to their tables. We were on a menu that included Bellinis so we would have thought they would have been served to us at the bar. Nope.
After being seated at the table for an age eventually our order was taken, maybe the Bellinis will arrive now. Nope. The food arrived quite quickly and was good, but again waited a while for the plates to be cleared. We didn't seem to have a set server it was whoever was walking past at the time. 2 of the servers seemed to be having a bit of a disagreement, which whilst it was entertaining, was not very professional.
Main course and desert was good (could have done with a sharper knife for the main though). We decided that we would have some coffees and liqueurs and deal with the Bellini issue with the bill, however it took so long to get a servers attention that we just decided to get the bill and go elsewhere for coffees. They did pick up straight away that they missed the Bellinis and took them off the bill.

Shame because this place could be brilliant but the chaotic service let's it down

The set price dinner menu was delicious and great value. Service deteriorated somewhat as the restaurant filled up but staff were charming. The A/C was fierce - we were rather chilly and in October one would have thought they'd not only switch off the A/C, but out on some heating!

I went to this restaurant for my birthday as my partner read some good review of the place. The place was really noisy - typical night out for (what we Londoners would call them) the city workers (bankers, insurers, lawyers, etc). But it's understandable considering the location of the restaurant. The service, on the other hand, has lots of room for improvement. I understand that their main clientele are the city workers, I find it rather annoying that no one brought us the menu or check if we want any drinks in a half full restaurant after seating us at the table. Five minutes went by, with a few staff walking pass us constantly, we decided to remind them that we need some service. And it's a similar situation after every course as well as when we tried to get the bill. The ones who served us were friendly enough. One girl even stayed for a short banter when she bought our main course. And the food was good quality. I would say avoid this place on a week night when you have to compete with other tables who spend a few hundreds if not thousands on drinks. It might be a lot nicer to visit at the weekends when the financial district is dead.

This is my favourite restaurant in London, the views are beautiful and the food is always amazing. The restaurant was very busy and the service was below usual high standards. We finished our main, 30 mins later I had to ask the staff to pls take them away. The staff weren't as attentive as they should.

Evening standard menu. Great food, but let down by atrocious service in the second half of the meal. We were forgotten about, and ended up sitting with the dessert menu for 20 minutes before we managed to get someone’s attention. They took the desserts off the bill (value of £2 each) but it let down the whole experience.

We were here for lunch at Canary Wharf before heading to golf... to be perfectly honest the food was merely passable and the service as well.
The steak was served cold and although the crab burger had a good seasoning, it was served cold as well.
The service was too much (waiters everywhere watching you eat) and they weren’t smiling at all (all looked way too serious)
I wouldn’t complain because the value is good for London but would absolutely not recommend for special occasions.

Overall a nice meal, but my partner felt that the skate dish was too salty and the aubergine which accompanied it undercooked and inappropriate. Happily, the restaurant did not charge us for the dish.

Please be aware that there are two different parts to Plateau. It will be good to know when placing the booking as they carries different price menu. Nonetheless, I tried both and both are very good. For some reason, Plateau is not well known to the local... and I do believe it deserve more attention. It's at a great location (on top of Waitrose/John Lewis) and has AMAZING view of the square with glass top roof. It is truly exceptional venue on a bright day! and I can see different section of Plateau will be very suited for my next office drink. Highly recommended (although, part of me want to keep it a secret). The food was also very good, and very good value. Enjoy!

Food is OK but nothing extraordinary... Priority is on the look rather than the taste!
Reasonably priced 3 course set menu for early evening dinner.

Typical atmosphere of a big open room restaurant with a business atmosphere and nice views over Canada Square.

Shocking service in this restaurant, ordered two fillet steaks first they are the size of a postage stamp second both cooked in correctly. Asked for medium well came medium rare sent it back after 10 mins came back like a piece of charcoal. Sat for ten minutes with empty glasses had to ask waiter to refill the wine from our bottle, coffee ordered after ten mins had to chase and then to add insult to injury they made me wait 20 mins to pay! And even asking for service to be removed nobody asked if everything was ok!! Will never return appalling!

Restaurant was pretty empty in the lunch time, which was good. Food was ok but had higher expectations for the price. Beautiful presentation. Slow service even though place was empty-ish.
Amazing chocolate cake though!

Certainly living on past reputation. This used to be one of my favourite restaurants in London. Nothing special and bland tasting. I never usually need to add salt and pepper. Big disappointment we even skipped dessert.

A lovely date night.
Although 2 courses for £25 quickly turned into an £85 bill with a couple of cocktails, bottled water and 2 side dishes. So just be prepared if you’re looking for a meal in a budget.

Best pork belly dish I've had.

Staff were extremely friendly and importantly they presented a cake for my dad's birthday.

Much appreciated!
