A welcoming and friendly atmosphere. We felt particularly cared for with personal emails from Alexandra, the Event Coordinator, inquiring into any special dietary or mobility needs.
The food presentation is unique. and while the initial review of the menu may have you scratching your head and saying "what are small plates", by the end of the evening our group of 5 had all thoroughly enjoyed this wonderful culinary experience.
The charcuterie and cheese plates were a great way to start the evening. To a person, we each enjoyed our main dishes, including individual selections of trout, grilled romaine, pork belly, steak, and gnocci. 3 or 5 oz. wine pairings topped it off.
Service was superior and informative. The wine suggestions were spot on, and while we never felt rushed, our server was always there when needed.

We had an amazing evening at Play with our clients this past Tuesday. Food was amazing, wine as amazing and above all the service was amazing. Our clients were very pleased with our sharing plates and the sommelier selected some great bottles of wine. Thinking of a nice wine try "Lotus". We would highly recommend Play to anyone looking for superb food with awesome staff.

Was a while ago when I was there but it was excellent. Went with some friends, sipped on some awesome wine and shared different dishes. Highly recommend it.

The food was excellent and the presentation was beautiful. Wine pairings were perfect as well. The venue is small and perfect for conversation. The food is presented in a way that makes sharing enjoyable. I would recommend this restaurant.

The lunch special - any two dishes for $22 is a great value proposition. Our party of three shared 6 courses of delightful dishes with thumb up for the beef tartare and octopus. Service was attentive but not overbearing. Will definitely come back.
