What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
8.3

Plateau is an upscale fine dining restaurant in Canada Place with a nice view over the main square and flawless modern French cuisine.

Ratings 8.0-8.5:The best way to think about restaurants in the low to mid 8′s is that these are the places you would absolutely go back to, anytime. These restaurants are ones that you want to bring a friend to, just so they can also experience the duck carnitas, or burger, or whatever dish the place is known for.

We were here for lunch at Canary Wharf before heading to golf... to be perfectly honest the food was merely passable and the service as well.
The steak was served cold and although the crab burger had a good seasoning, it was served cold as well.
The service was too much (waiters everywhere watching you eat) and they weren’t smiling at all (all looked way too serious)
I wouldn’t complain because the value is good for London but would absolutely not recommend for special occasions.

Beautiful scenery overlooking CW with a classical design decoration
The service is good and the tables being well spaced one from another it’s the perfect place for a professional lunch.

Food is nice even if could be slightly better

Overall great experience

Overall a nice meal, but my partner felt that the skate dish was too salty and the aubergine which accompanied it undercooked and inappropriate. Happily, the restaurant did not charge us for the dish.

Please be aware that there are two different parts to Plateau. It will be good to know when placing the booking as they carries different price menu. Nonetheless, I tried both and both are very good. For some reason, Plateau is not well known to the local... and I do believe it deserve more attention. It's at a great location (on top of Waitrose/John Lewis) and has AMAZING view of the square with glass top roof. It is truly exceptional venue on a bright day! and I can see different section of Plateau will be very suited for my next office drink. Highly recommended (although, part of me want to keep it a secret). The food was also very good, and very good value. Enjoy!

Food is OK but nothing extraordinary... Priority is on the look rather than the taste!
Reasonably priced 3 course set menu for early evening dinner.

Typical atmosphere of a big open room restaurant with a business atmosphere and nice views over Canada Square.

Shocking service in this restaurant, ordered two fillet steaks first they are the size of a postage stamp second both cooked in correctly. Asked for medium well came medium rare sent it back after 10 mins came back like a piece of charcoal. Sat for ten minutes with empty glasses had to ask waiter to refill the wine from our bottle, coffee ordered after ten mins had to chase and then to add insult to injury they made me wait 20 mins to pay! And even asking for service to be removed nobody asked if everything was ok!! Will never return appalling!

Restaurant was pretty empty in the lunch time, which was good. Food was ok but had higher expectations for the price. Beautiful presentation. Slow service even though place was empty-ish.
Amazing chocolate cake though!

A really great place, although I found it a little hard to find, I think if it says Above Waitrose, it would make it easier to find, apart from that very nice food, presented in a nice way by polite and helpful staff

Certainly living on past reputation. This used to be one of my favourite restaurants in London. Nothing special and bland tasting. I never usually need to add salt and pepper. Big disappointment we even skipped dessert.

A lovely date night.
Although 2 courses for £25 quickly turned into an £85 bill with a couple of cocktails, bottled water and 2 side dishes. So just be prepared if you’re looking for a meal in a budget.

Best pork belly dish I've had.

Staff were extremely friendly and importantly they presented a cake for my dad's birthday.

Much appreciated!

I like the environment and the food! Service is excellent. I booked the table for our anniversary. It is a casual lunch as we have just celebrated Valentine day yesterday.
We are very impressed when the stuff brought out a cake with the words “happy anniversary”. They really read the detail of my booking as I did my booking this morning never expecting anything from this restaurant.

Thank you for make our day special!!!!!! We will definitely come back again!

Lovely evening spent at Plateau on Wednesday 30th January, service and food were excellent and as with all good evenings the time just flew and it was almost closing time by the time we left.

Great views out to Canary Wharf, will certainly be back.
