“Interesting spot for a decent meal”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

The location is a bit cramped for parking due to the market and Dimore's Pizza. Food is decent if a bit pricey but certainly worth the cost.

“Fresh and natural”
Reviewed 23 March 2014 via mobile

We ordered take-out from Plate. The food all arrived fresh, hot and just like we had ordered it in the restaurant. We started with ahi spring rolls with mango salsa, which was really unique and delicious. A great blend of textures and flavors. Then we shared the avocado mango salad, which again was a great choice. We finished with the local white halibut. With all of the flown-in options to choose from, why not choose something local and support local businesses. It didn't disappoint at all. Very tender, with black truffle mashed potatoes and mixed vegetables, zucchini and squash. Even the slices of sourdough bread that accompanied the meal was delicious and soft inside, slightly crusty on the outside. Before I forget, the young man who delivered the food was very polite, knowledgable about what the food and was dressed impeccably. So the overall experience, despite not being in the restaurant itself, was outstanding!

“Has potential but could be better”
Reviewed 12 March 2014

I went there for my birthday and was expecting better service and food for the price. My wife really liked her meal but my steak was cooked wrong and the second one was lukewarm and tough as leather. I gave up on trying to get it fixed. The service was slow, they were very nice and took off the salad and drink from my bill. Maybe your experience will be better.

“Breakfast in Malibu”
Reviewed 16 February 2014

Sunday breakfast with the family, got there about 9:30 and it was empty, by 10:30 the place was full. Beautiful view looking over the beach/ocean. Plenty of food, lox and Florentine benedict was fine/ok. One negative was the potatoes were way too salty. Vegetable omelet was delicious. Waiter was attentive and polite.

“Hidden Gem”
Reviewed 28 December 2013 via mobile

We were in Malibu...walked the pier and were looking to eat before dropping family off at the airport. Hidden in a strip mall...Plate is tastefully decorated and has a beautiful view. The juices and teas are amazing and the presentation lets you know you are getting something special. The tuna melt was good...the sweet potato fries ...amazing. The staff is friendly and attentive. Lovely experience here.
