“The best of Malibu if you're not pretentious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2011

I avoided the restaurant for months because it just seemed that it could not possibly be good based on its location - a little shopping center next to Pacific Greens. Big mistake. Plate is by far the best of Malibu - and maybe the best food within 50 miles. FRESH, organic, interesting....and the service? Fantastic, in a word. And I must say, while dinner is great, lunch is truly amazing. You can eat there everyday and have something different and memorable. And while it is always busy, they always find a table for you.

“Brilliant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2010

We went to this restaurant with our 2 children aged 10 and 13. We were served by George, who was really friendly and knew every thing about the menu. Our food order was taken, we were then given two plates of podded peas and bread which was lovely. My son had the pizza, we all had a taste and it was amazing best pizza I've ever tasted. My husband had the Kobie beef burger that was lovely as well. What i had I can't spell think its Arrabiata! that was lovely and spicy as well.
Would definately go again if we came back to this area.

“The tastiest dishes, enhanced by great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2010

Plate is deceiving. As you park in the lot of a strip mall, you would not believe what awaits you. The food is organic and fresh, and the taste is spectacular. The mixed seafood over black linguine is amazing, and highly recommended. Also, herbal ice teas are poured right in front of you, and have scents that are stronger than a scented candle.
The service is amazing, and the atmosphere is clean and simple, which allows you to focus on the food.
