Delicious and upbeat - a favorite

Our daughter took us here for a bite and we can't wait to return! Delicious and beautifully prepared dishes. Portioned so we could try a little bit of everything - so much variety and we loved all the homemade sauces and garnishes. They treated our party of seven with ease and we loved the special... read more

I have been living in Durham for three years now, and tried many of the restaurants, old standbys, and new ones as they crop up. I must say that Six Plates is my go to stop when I am worn out after work and just want an easy place for a great meal with my wife and a glass of... More

This restaurant is a bit different in that it lacks traditional waiters. You have to visit the bar to place your food and drink orders, but they do bring them to the table. The atmosphere was quiet even though the place was fairly busy. The plates are small plates meant to be shared and they pair wines from their extensive... More

Great place for wine and small bites. Great with friends or for a night out with your significant other. The food and wine changes often which is nice. They are always quick to recommend something that suits your taste.

I loved my visit to Six Plates for a girl's night recently. We visited on a Tuesday night and took advantage of the Tuesday night $4 wine pours. We tried several wines and also had the Lamby Joes and fries. The truffle oil fries topped with parmesan are absolutely delicious and are served with their house made ketchup. The Lamby... More

Six Plates is a casual wine bar with a limited menu of very good food. We went on a Monday night. You order at the bar - food and wine, and choose a place to sit. We were sitting on very comfortable sofas, although there are lots of tables as well. The wine selections are toward the entry level -... More

Staff was very friendly. Atmosphere was nice. Food was a disappointment..fries and chips over salted...the rest pretty bland.

This was our first time there -- we were looking for something a little different. Every month they feature six different small plates of food, with a suggested wine pairing -- all interesting combinations of food, all beautifully presented. They also have a limited number of standing menu items. Casual seating at the bar, bar-height tables, or couches and loveseats.... More

After coming in for a couple of years and dealing with the "Self Service" style of service our most recent visit has put Six Plates "On waivers" ( not returning anytime soon). We ordered two glasses of featured Riesling from Alsace only to be told at the bar they were sold out. We then had two glasses of nice but... More
