The Plaza Bistro represents a unique dining experience. My partner and I were here on a sticky hot summer evening. To me, that was the one major flaw. The lack of any indoor dining options left us vulnerable to the elements....Heat, Humidity, Wind blowing things off your table, and Mosquitos! Otherwise, the experience was most pleasant. Wine selection was nice... More

My family of four decided to try this place on a holiday weekend hoping it wouldn't be too overcrowded. Much to our surprise, we had no problem getting a table (which worried us a little at first). The atmosphere was great, all outdoor dining but had fans to keep cool. The wait staff was prompt and courteous and the food... More

Place was not packed which is strange for 7:00 on a Friday evening. Tables sticky and strangely arranged. Water tasted like lead. Oddly the GM took our order but never returned? Ordered guacamole and chips; took... More

As this restaurant is close to our hotel, we used to come down here for dinner at almost each of our trips. We were a little bit blazed from our last experience. We got a Professional and polite service but it cannot compensate for the food. We first ordered a red wine ( a Pino Noir) which was served really... More

Made reservations on open table. What a dump. Hated our meal. We both had the most soggy flat bread pizzas ever. Would not go back or recommend. The live act was a guy on the piano playing the same song over every dance song he played.

Since we had already eaten we decided to dine the following night. Service and Food was great and the outside dining added great ambiance. The Scallop appetizer... More
