Tried this place on a Groupon. Heavy red drapes when you enter. Minimal seating. Looked like less than 2 tables. We sat ar the bar but barstools weren't very comfortable at all. Two bartenders/waiters. Seemed like many tables had been waiting for their server for...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...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...More
