Think it just finds it hard to compete with all the other restaurants and bars in the area. Good service though!

“Spot the Celebs - oh and good food and service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

Met a friend for dinner at Plein Sud when I was in town - the food and decor, service were all very good, and a lovely evening was had by all. Staff were solicitous and kind about my sore throat, bringing me tea with honey, which was a nice touch. Atmosphere was a pleasant mix of trendy and buzzy nearest the bar, and cosier in the proper restaurant section. We sat next to a television actor, which was slightly distracting, as he was a very animated character, but also entertaining. Would not hesitate to return, if only there was not such a dizzying amount of choice in this lovely city . . .

“Worst Service Ever”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2012

I feel bad for the hosts of one of the best weddings I ever attended. The brunch the morning after the wedding was here. I'm actually still sitting here now waiting for my brunch. We have been waiting over an hour for our omelette. Never mind the fact that it took an hour for them to bring a bloody Mary. The servers haven't even been back to refresh our coffee. Not even a basket of bread. Do not waste your time coming here.

“Delicious food, beautiful presentation, incredible service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

The food was delicious and beautifully presented. The attentive service we received from Kyle and the entire staff was friendly and professional.

The chef combined fresh ingredients with just the right seasoning. The scallops were the best I have ever eaten. The atmosphere was perfect.
