Dying a slow death

This once thriving restaurant has now gone from being open nightly to opening only on Friday and Saturday evenings. We stopped by on a Saturday evening for a quick dessert and found there to be very few patrons. Could the Plaza Bistro be destined for a return to an empty lot?

Ate here last year several times. Both food and service are excellent with fine entertainment on weekends and the ambience of dining under the stars. Pick a warm evening and enjoy.

We've eaten breakfast and dinner a handful of times, each time receiving very good food and friendly service. Last night we had pasta. It was cooked in the traditional Italian way with pasta and sauce ultimately being sautéed together. Not too much sauce. It was very good. Nice atmosphere and located within a few blocks of many small hotels. We... More

We were there between breakfast and lunch so it was very quiet. The eggs benedict was the best we ever had. A bit on the pricy side but worth every penny.

The organization was poor (had to wait ages for the food and drinks, were not informed how the "package" works as no-one of... More

This place has done everything right. The food is fantastic, the staff are excellent and the setting is outstanding. Everything about it is unique. It's set in a parking lot but is super romantic. They've made such a big effort to ensure that everything is perfect. It's such a special place that I'll definitely return to on my next visit.... More

This restaurant is totally outdoors. The food is good and it is so good to sit outside eating good food, nice wait staff, and gentle warm breezes. We will go back.

My wife and I had a wonderful dinner at the The Plaza Bistro. It was a short walk from our hotel, so we gave it a try. Service was excellent, we enjoyed sitting outside, and the food was quite good. The serving staff was very accommodating of our two year old grandson. They have a decent selection of wine and... More

The Plaza Bistro is a great and very different experience. It was hard to tell it's a restaurant, at first; we arrived in the late afternoon and it looked like a parking lot with a lot of outdoor furniture. But as the sun went down, the lights of the bistro completely transformed the place. It felt romantic, and kind of... More
