My husband and I recently bought a second home in Sourhampton and finally were able to try Plaza Cafe. Superb food and presentation!!! The wine list had many choices and we loved our Ramey Claret choice with our steak. Our salad and entree were quality ingredients and presentation was the best we have had in the area. We will definitely... More

Here during the off season - excellent service, great food, with a lovely ambiance! I had the scallops which were awesome. Some of the menu items were limited because this is the off season. Hope to return soon given the delicious food and wonderful service! Bari and Irene were so friendly and attentive! Definitely will return.

We came to The Hamptons after the hectic summer season had ended and stayed in The Southampton Inn. Was pleasantly surprised to find a seafood restaurant (Plaza Café) immediately opposite and after a quick check of reviews decided to dine there. We eat at a lot of good restaurants globally and this place did not disappoint. Nicely presented food and... More

Always a treat to have the opportunity to met friends for dinner as well as see the lovely and attentive staff at The Plaza. Foodies will love tasting Chef Doug's talent on display with the varied menu- seafood is his specialty and be sure to save room for dessert! The large room is warmed by the roaring fire place and...

The Plaza Cafe is not a cheap restaurant but it's worth it. It isn't obvious from the road when you drive by but if you look for the big sign that says 71 Hill Street and turn into that side road it's just there. It also has a good sized car park. Inside you enter a tastefully decorated square room... More

First time at this lovely place, but the ambiance with stone fireplace seemed more conducive to me for a Fall night out than a warm summer eve.Two of us had the lobster/shrimp shephard's pie and it was tasty but for a dish with some pieces of lobster and shrimp, it was quite expensive. Don't remember if it was $42 or... More
