Friday night made a visit to PLaE Restaurant and had one of the best meals in a long time. Also had the pleasure of having Barbara and Courtney to serve us and such a great team to serve. PLaE continues to present some of the finest meals around. I had the special (not the chef's surprise), but the special. It... More

Hardly anyone in the place the night we were there. Thought the food was ok but overpriced, service was good, but the "filtered" water they served was terrrible.

Unbelievably great meals, dessert, and service, plus very reasonable wine prices. The Caesar salad with shrimp was very good and the asparagus appetizer was to die for - tender, with a delicious cheese sauce and lump crab meat lightly covering part of the dish. The risotto was cooked to perfection with plenty of fresh spring vegetables and was very flavorful.... More

Plae was once one of our favorite restaurants. Then something happened. We visited this week after a year's absence and were blown away by the quality of the food. The salads were fresh and full of flavor. The salmon was so tender that it literally fell apart when touched by the fork. It was served atop the best grits side... More

Website does not do this restaurant justice. The inside was very lovely and cozy. Food and service were excellent. Not to be missed when staying on Amelia Island.

I found this experience to be one of the very best ever! I highly recommend Plae, its a beautiful restaurant in the old town, wood floors beautiful art AND the food is fabulous!!!!! Service was very good, although the staff were a little quick to pull the plates, but that was nothing compared to all the perks during dinner. Must... More

We chose this restaurant to celebrate my husband's birthday while staying in The Omni. We were told there would be live music but there was nothing going on this Wednesday night and the atmosphere could not have been more dull. But even more disappointing was the Red Snapper entree that was their special "fish of the day". I love red... More

Visited this restaurant while staying on Amelia Island. The food and service were great. There was a live piano player, which really added to the upscale atmosphere of this restaurant. Since our decision to dine at PLAE was spontaneous, we did not make reservations, but the hostess pleasantly arranged for seating to accommodate us. Our waitress was very personable. I... More

Was visiting my Daughter and Son in Law for their Birthdays and Christmas from Oregon. They had eaten there before and suggested it for a special night out. It didn't disappoint! Our server was Barbara, a very friendly, warm, helpful, lady with a great sense of humor. Her food suggestions were "spot on". The food was delicious, and very appealing... More

Dinner at PLAE last Monday night and wow, it was great! Had the Grouper special which was on top of a bed of sliced roasted brussel sprouts. That was new to me and would gladly have the entire meal again. Had the pleasure of having Courtney serve us and laugh. Played a little joke on her too, Brett sat down... More
