We were a table if 9. Service was slow and our waiter forgot several drinks and had to be prompted for additional drinks. The appetisers were good. I had to ask for my plate to be cleared away as my main course arrived. My husband had snapper which was lovely. My steak was ok, but didnt appear to be seasoned and was served with lumpy mash potato. The only time they were prompt was brining the bill. We found it expensive for 2 courses of average food 2 glasses of wine.
The new setting is larger than the old restaurant and it has lost its intimacy and more like a sports bar with sports TV on.

we waited to try the new location because we heard about the crowds........... stopped in yesterday and were pleased to be seated right away. I had to try the appy ....special house made Burrata caprese........ it was so delicious , creamy and fresh served with crispy grilled bread.... followed by the fried oyster platter and killer shrimp...Frank had the bread pudding for desert... .a dinner this good is hard to find and worth every calorie.

This is one of the better places in the Placida area this is their second restaurant the first one was much smaller this one is larger you’re still getting used to the larger facility but they’re coming along very well one of the better places to go to in this area a little pricier than some of the others but well worth the trip I suggest reservations because they do fill up every night

The first thing our server shared was that the restaurant is going through growing pains.
We have been to Placda Grill in their previous location. This is a lt bigger.
So... it has lost its intimate atmosphere...and a lot of its elegance...
But despite the long wait .the food was Great

We visited Placida Grill recently with friends to celebrate my wifes birthday. Our server Lauren H was very attentive. We were a party of 6 and the food served to all of us was exceptional. The restaurant has a great atmosphere and although it was really busy the service was very good. We have not eaten here before but will certainly return very soon. A great new addition to this area.
