Mediterranean
Delicious and colorful California-fresh ingredients are the soul of our thoughtfully crafted and constantly evolving Mediterranean-inspired menu. Savor the spectacular array of seasonal vegetables, lean proteins, seafood, whole grains and artisanal pasta, breads and cheeses that invigorate our kitchen in healthy and exciting ways. Steps away, our comfortable and welcoming dining room is complemented by a bar/lounge and two outdoor patios that take full advantage of Southern California’s mild climate and the vibrancy of the UCLA campus to create an unforgettable year-round al fresco dining experience.

Seating at Plateia is first come first serve, as we don't guarantee location of table with a reservation, but if you have a reservation, you are guaranteed a table!
Plateia is a dog friendly restaurant, but even with a reservation, a wait may be necessary if the patio is full.

    Plateia is ALWAYS outstanding. From Stephanie's greeting up front to Jordan's care and concern for our needs we were well cared for. Besides that, the food and bar can't be out done! Of all the restaurants on the Westside, this is the one I keep returning to!

    Great food, beautiful outdoor seating, attentive but unobtrusive service; and, not least, moderate prices and a strict no-tipping policy. Omelette is to be strongly recommended.

    I'm a regular and LOVE Plateia. My only compaint yesterday was I brought a friend with me who had never been there and when she requested that the heater be turned on the gentleman said it was not working and he'd call an engineer. We never saw anyone and it was chilly. We told the server that the gentleman was going to get an engineer and it still was not attended to. I bit of a bad first taste for my friend.

    Have eaten dinner here several times pre-Geffen theater. We park in Westwood near the theater then walk the easy 10 minutes to the Luskin Cinderence Center where Plateia is located. Last night we were seated indoors at the far north side of the restaurant. Very different ambiance and it felt more like a breakfast area of a hotel, especially with the doors to the buffet area kept propped open where we could see into. Food was excellent as always. We really enjoyed the seasonal burrita and kabocha starter to share. Interesting and delicious flavors. We enjoyed our gem salad with chicken and the sea bass. Complementary chocolate dipped strawberries for Valentines Day were a lovely touch and just enough of a bite of sweet to end the meal. Next time I eat there I will request eating outdoors (weather permitting) or closer to the bar and greeter station for a quieter and more elegant dining g experience.

    Delicious food. The pizza and salads are my favorite French fries were delicious too. Great cocktails and a good selection of wines by the glass and beers. Service was great, but the food did take a little while to come out, so maybe make sure you have time for a meal if you go to Plateia. The ambiance is great too. I love the outdoor patio, but the inside is nice too.
