Always a surprise

The wait staff are incredibly knowledgable and made excellent wine recommendations for my husband and I when we visited for a date night. My friend had told me this was the best place in Durham, and she's damn right. The menu changes weekly (I think) with a few staples always available, but what is... read more

Six plates is on my regular line-up when dining out in Durham. They are inventive with their changing menu and deliver with excellent taste and well-portioned presentation. Staples on the menu like the sliders and truffle fries are a life-line when you're just want something comfortable and familiar. Friendly staff run the front and are always happy to help you...

My husband and I are near Duke for upcoming surgery. We badly needed a normal fun dinner out and this was perfect. There is a heavy red drape you enter, and as you walk through it becomes a huge comfy room with sofas as well as hightops around the room. Menu is small but excellent. All sharing plates. We ordered... More

I was just blown away this evening by the awesome food and the owner! Fabulous small plates of amazing food-unique pairings and flavors & great wine. The chocolate truffles are to die for. Everything exceeded or expectations.

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 attention from the wine waitress... 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
