The Plaza Restaurant closed in November of 2012, as the owners moved to Italy. This restaurant's location has been resurrected as "Hanks' Place", a Cuban-European Bistro with great food.

Service was poor and food just fair. Waitress was pleasant, but inexperienced. My wife ordered linguine with clams. It was very bland. Had to ask for utensils so we could serve ourselves salad. We were not given clean forks after eating our salad. Chairs were old and worn. Had to ask for pepper and water. Restaurant was empty, so no... More

My husband and I were in Key Biscayne after a Carnival Cruise on the Liberty. We spent 2 days here and the very first restaurant we tried was the Plaza. He had the Veal Vitello Parmigiana and I had the Lasagne Bolognese. From the moment we arrived our waiter Fabio was terrific. We sat outside on the terrace and their... More

Will NOT go again. Food was terribly expensive for what it is, service haughty and underperforming. Much better places to choose from here on the Key - like Forno & Fornelli, recently opened Italian place who really try to please and make you feel wanted as a customer!

Not a completely satisfactory experience. The table was never set properly, we had to ask for butter, we were never given or offered the vinegar and oil that other tables had inside, we were never asked whether we wanted regular or sparkling water, we we never asked if we wanted wine or cocktails, we were never told about the specials...

Our party of six tried many items from the standard menu. Our waiter was experienced but new to this restaurant and he did an admirable job. We brought two outstanding wines and the restaurant managed the wine experience to perfection. The salmon in garlic sauce with artichoke was very well prepared, the mahi mahi with mushrooms was rated as just... More

Best meal we had in Key Biscayne! You deserve the #1 spot on Trip Advisor. My Husband and I enjoyed the food, the quaint atmosphere, the soft music in the background and the very pleasant waiter! Ossobucco was Phenomenal as was the Eggplant! Our waiter said it all; "happy tummy = happy heart!"

If you are visiting Key Biscayne, FL, you need to take the time to visit the Plaza restaurant. It has an Italian flare and the food is excellent. We have been there many times and have yet to order something bad. Of course, we all have our favorites but truly it is worth a visit. The early bird specials are... More
