“Casual group dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2014

From the phone call to make the booking to leaving the restaurant the service was excellent ! Staff were very helpful, polite and there when you needed them.
Great selection of food and beverages - everyone in our group (11 people) thought the selection was extensive and all enjoyed their food. Would recommend for a casual,fun place to go.

“Saturday lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2014 via mobile

It's been a while but this place still has the same charm. The menu has changed a little, for the better too. Not that the old menu was shabby though. The sharing plates are a great idea and taste great. The tasting paddle of six glasses of Monteiths for $18.00 looks like a bargain too, just not for lunch with other things to do later on. Wife has a loyalty card that you can either redeem a discount or accumulate for use later. She obviously frequents here more often than I do as the accumulated amount could have almost covered lunch. I recommend Plateau to everyone.

“Good decor quiet restaurant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2014

The restaurant was not full, we were given a table in the middle of the dining room because we did not have a reservation. Anyway, it was fine, it was quiet and we were attended to very quickly. The waitresses were attentive throughout.
There were very very limited choices on the menu, we were very disappointed with this.
We ordered fish and duck, which were both quite nice, but there was hardly any vegetables with them as we were expected to order some side dishes as well. We also ordered a lemon tart dessert, which was just ok because the pastry was not done properly at the bottom !
The wines on the list were quite expensive as well, all at least $40 + a bottle.
All and all, in spite of all the good reviews on this restaurant, we found it pretty ordinary as we had been to much better places.
