Great Food, Needs Better Atmosphere

My wife and I had dinner here last week while staying at the Omni Plantation. It is located right on the property not far from the hotel which is nice. Our first impression was not that great as the restaurant is a bit dark and has a strange smell when you enter. The food however was fantastic. I... read more

Visited this place before and enjoy the atmosphere and service generally. This time they were just completely off. Our server took forever to even take our drink order. She remained unattentive throughout dinner. To me, when you pay this much, service should be top notch and it wasn't. Ordered Calamari as appetizer, very greasy and mealy - almost like it... More

Wow...this is truly a gem on Amelia island that you don't want to miss! The ambiance is beautiful & the food was fabulous. I shared my list of allergies with the server & she told me that it was not a problem. We had fried oysters, beet salad, lamb, & seared sea scallops. Everything was presented beautifully & cooked to... More

We used to love this restaurant, but have been disappointed with our experience the last three times we have dined there. First, the atmosphere is fun and playful...especially the outdoor deck complete with sculptures of animals chasing one another up a tree limb. The prices have always been a bit high, but the atmosphere (in our minds, at least) compensated... More

Nice restaurant, had very good food (some basic dishes with the cook's individual flair) at Ok prices and good service.

I had the pleasure of eating at Plae tonight after not having been there for several years. I was delighted to find their food was still excellent. I had the bacon wrapped scallops appetizer, the grilled shrimp, and a fantastic creme brûlée for desert. The Pinot from Mercurey was delightful. I would definitely return the next time I'm in Amelia... More

The great components to date night are atmosphere, good food, music and great service. This restaurant offers all four! The atmosphere was cozy, the seats in the booths were soft and you sunk down in them, the service was excellent prompt but not rushed. The food was very good. Started with 2 of the small plate offerings the ahi tuna... More

we came here two years ago and loved it promising to return. Staying at the Omni this weekend we went to PLAE on Saturday night. I was hoping to get the whole fried fish Thai style that we love before , but they no longer had it as that chef took the recipe with him. However, all four of us... More
