Plateia at UCLA
Nick our waiter was great!
Food was perfect
I had chicken avocado sandwich
My wife had chicken soup and salad-excellent as well
Beers were fresh and cold-generous pour.
I like the new game day menu.
Also with our reservation we were seated quickly.
Will be back!
Acoustics limit conversation for diners. Otherwise good food and service.
Outstanding menu and service as always truly exceptional.
Had dinner at Plateia to celebrate a birthday. The yellowtail tartare was wonderful (although the bread they served with it was partly burned) and the radicchio frisee salad was delicious and big enough to serve three people. Also enjoyed the spaghetti with prawns and the pan-seared duck (which would have been even better with potatoes or rice added). And the chocolate torte was a lovely way to finish off the meal. Will definitely try to return there soon.
Phenomenal French toast and Croque Madame for Brunch. Wonderful atmosphere. Soothing and relaxing
The food was underwhelming. The baba ganoush had no flavor. The scallops were great in texture but over salted. We liked the bread the most, and for the price of the main dishes the cuisine fell very short of our expectations. The service was friendly and attentive.
A (not so) hidden gem on the campus of UCLA...
Located in the heart of the campus at the Luskin Conference Center & Hotel, Plateia is a great spot for a pre-show or sporting event dinner not to mention lunch if you're visiting the campus.
Great food! Friendly staff and wonderful look. Highly recommended!
This is a lovely relaxed restaurant on ucla campus with good well priced food. And there’s no tipping which helps the pocketbook
The Sunday evening (5:00 pm) menu is limited, but the salads, sandwiches and burger were very good, and the restaurant is a convenient walking distance from Royce Hall.
Located in the hotel on the UCLA campus. It is used by hotel guests and UCLA staff and students mainly. For us it is a destination restaurant because of the freshness of the ingredients and the chef. Something on the menu for everyone. But the chef makes very interesting dishes that compete with high end gourmet restaurants. They are growing their own produce on campus and they make everything on site including bread and desserts. It is almost a farm to table restaurant and they are ready to become 100% sustainable. We go mainly for lunch. Long lunch.
Plateia is the hidden secret in Westwood.
Excellent pre-concert or theater.
lovely indoor/outdoor dining.
Plateia offers delicious, fresh and special feeling food right in the heart of the UCLA campus. It’s perfect for pretty much every occasion from a nice family meal to a business meeting to getting together with friends.
Collegial, very stylish environment. Not rushed, time for conversation.
Food is creative, very, very good. Ceasar salad with duck and anchovies, terrific.
The service is exceptional, charming, gracious, handsome servers
Everything is excellent at Plateia! The staff, food, service, and ambiance! I highly recommend this place!
We’ve been here many times. This time was disappointing: my squash soup was barely lukewarm and I had to flag someone to bring a spoon with which I could eat the soup; when the plates were cleared from the first course the person left one large plate one the table.
The food was good, as always, although it seems that the prices increased.
Still “the only game in town“ if attending an evening event on campus. And the setting is quite nice.
Ambiance is outstanding. We sat on the patio and it is truly a lovely space. Lighting and landscaping are beautiful!
Service horrendous. Our waiter didn't appear tableside at the usual intervals in a timely way: to welcome/greet/offer drinks; to take our order; to bring the order; to check on how is the food; to see if wanted coffee/dessert; to offer the check, etc. Because we were scheduled to attend a play with a hard start time, we grew weary of waiting for the check so my friend walked inside to track down our waiter. He told me he observed a group of waiters all standing around in a cluster inside the restaurant where there were few diners, while the patio was full of diners, with no attendance in site.
Food: fresh and flavorful. I ordered the small Greek salad with added chicken. It arrived in the tiniest of bowls and filled to the brim. Because the chicken pieces needed to be cut to bite size, it was virtually impossible to do in this overfull bowl so I asked for a dinner plate and ended up transferring the entire salad to a plate, much more practical!
Wonderful place for lunch or dinner with friends or colleagues. Food is delicious and the staff is wonderful with an outstanding service. Highly recommend Plateia and will go back soon.
Every dish was outstanding. Group of friends drove two hours to eat at Plateia and they all were astounded. Service was amazing, ambiance was classy and refined... 10/10!
The menu offers a good variety of selections. All that I have tried have been excellent. The outside area is especially pleasant, assuming the weather is good.
A fine on campus restaurant.
Plateia is truly one of the hidden gems of Los Angeles! Very elevated dishes without the elevated prices. We frequently go for lunch and dinner and they never disappoint. And the menu changes quite often which is great. Chef Jeromy and his team do a wonderful job!
Amazing food and service, absolutely stunning location/ambiance! 100% recommend.

Food and selection was great
Service - waiter/waitresses were very pleasant, but the food took forever to be served. We were getting late for the photo, so had to “wolf”it down.
Server, Julia, was phenomenal. And the fresh fruit dessert was very tasty.
Food is always good but the service is always so slow. We were never checked on and I had to find our server to receive the check. This is a problem I always experience at Plateia.
As a convenience for people who need a place near UCLA, this restaurant is a fine addition to the campus. However the service was far less than adequate. It took ages before a server came to ask if we wanted drinks, then ages to get them. Poorly explained, the right side of the wine list includes a very limited number of wine choices. On the left, there's a choice of "cask" wines, in 9 oz, half-liter, and liter quantities. Our first waitress said the RIGHT side of the wine list was a 9 oz pour -- when I received my pinot noir, it was far less than 9 oz, and the new waiter (whom we had to recruit since the female server who was supposed to be with us was nowhere to be found) said that information was incorrect. The food was good, the outdoor ambiance is good, the planters are amazingly populated with succulents. Interior is very noisy. Overall I am not impressed and only if pressed would I return to dine here.
Impressed with the food and the service. We would have preferred to be outside but as a party of 8 they could not accommodate that. However we felt out of the way of other diners and so there seemed a lack of ambience. Overall would recommend
THIS IS A HIDDEN GREAT DINING AREA. THE MAIN ISSUE IS PARKING BECAUSE IT IS ABSURD TO SPEND AN ADDITION 9-12 DOLLARS ON TOP OF FOOD, AND IT IS A PRETTY LONG WALK FROM THE VILLAGE.
Three old friends met and the staff were understanding of us taking our time. The hostess was very welcoming and remembered my name when we left. Our waiter was very personable and helpful. The food was great. This is very convenient for UCLA staff!!
Food and service were very good. Setting was excellent.
This is a lovely location for both lunch and dinner with an amazing selection for food & drinks. The service is impeccable. Will go back and highly recommend Plateia.
I have been here multiple times since it opened , the food and ambiance is excellent, the service is always bad , wish they would correct this problem

Awesome gem at UCLA. Best veggie burger and best burgers we ever had. Cocktails are delicious - don't miss the old fashioned with walnut bitters. Save room for the brown butter toffee gelato - so good! Beautiful and private outdoor patio is the perfect setting.
I have been to Plateia several times for dinner; but Sunday, 7/21/19, was the second time for lunch and it was such a lovely day outside and Daniel, our Server, was so patient with my Cousin and I as we caught up over two delicious Mimosas. Then my cousin had the Greek Salad and I had the wonderful chicken and avocado sandwich with an order of french fries I shared with my cousin. The afternoon was perfect and the beauty of the outdoors in combination with the excellent service and food made it a "win, win". I can hardly wait to return again.
Hello MichealR, Thank you so much for taking the time to review and rate your visit. Its always great to hear a positive feedback from our guests. Thanks Plateia Restaurant
Remarkably nice place for a university conference center. Food is excellent.... maybe a bit pricey for lunch, but I would do it again. Quite noisy inside. Outside patio seating might be a better choice, but totally dependent on the weather.
A very unique place, food is creative and good. Sat near the bar and the crowd was very noisy. One of our part ordered a hamburger and it was cold; she didn't send it back. Everyone else's meal was fine
This restaurant is part of UCLA's Luskin Conference center. In pleasant surroundings, indoor or out, you can have a variety of delicious soups, salads, sandwiches and mains.
We had a private event and the location, food and price were great.
Plateia is the best restaurant in Westwood and the UCLA community is so lucky to have this well run and elegant facility to partake in excellent food and service. The salmon is out of this world and for lunch I had the juicy hamburger with salad and coffee. The bar area is a great spot to have a drink before or after Plateia. I recommend Robert to serve you in the evenings as he is excellent. I look forward to another invitation again to Plateia.
