We stopped by Plate with our son, who has eaten there many times...what a pleasant surprise! It is located in a strip mall, and is known for "healthy" food so our expectations were not too high. However, we found the atmosphere and the food to be light and very refreshing. The menu offers a variety of standard and unique items...from... More

The concept of fresh, organic and local food was dashed by there being only one local fish on the menu that night (a white Pacific halibut). We searched the menu for anything else that was local, and could not find a thing, so I got a hanger steak. Prices were quite high in comparison with what we had been paying... More

Service was great--he didn't rush us. The food is healthy--and they give just the right amount. I had the chicken curry salad on papaya and a green salad with a vinegarette. So yummy. I will definitely go back.

Ate here upon the recommendation of the staff from the hotel we were staying at. Having had many expensive, but unremarkable, beach community dining experiences, I was a little skeptical but willing to try. My wife, daughter and me were pleasantly surprised with our food presentation and quality, and were happy with the wait staff service. We would eat here... More

Everything about this place was excellent- the food, the atmosphere (particularly for lunch/brunch/breakfast) and the staff. They have sort of a minimalist design which I really like. It keeps it simple and tasteful. Upon entering the place, we were greeted by a super friendly hostess- very well-put together. And although she may be beautiful and dressed impeccably, she was willing... More

Tucked in front of a two story strip shopping mall along PCH, Plate is under the radar, unless you are a local in the know. The restaurant does have a view of the ocean across the road, looking over the now empty Malibu Yacht Club lot. The service is excellent, the food ranges from vegan to steak with wonderful options...

Loved the health aspect of the food. The sourcing of local health food, great imagination going on in that kitchen to make a simple lunch place into a healthy dining with great drinks, teas, health drinks and food. Loved it. Sober atmosphere with great service and great food. Great lunch joint

Fish dishes were tasty, with quality ingredients. For Malibu, reasonably priced. Dining room is pleasant, though starkly modern and seating is somewhat densely packed.

Really good brunch and lunch. Good ingredients, as advertised. Small and pretty, comfortable, nice staff. On the pricey side for what it is but we expected that-- in Malibu, so is everything else. A very pleasant experience.

Thank aubri9
