I've never had a bad meal here. Doug is innovative and loves what he does. Everything is delicious. It's a bit pricey, but with every penny. You definitely get what you pay for at Plaza Cafe. Go!

Have had very good meals here in the past, but this meal was a major disappointment. The horseradish crusted cod was oddly bland. The steak was too chewy and the potatoes overloaded with garlic. Service was excellent. Room was quiet.

We had high expectations upon visiting The Plaza Cafe. The food was sorely missing flavor and many things that were on the menu were not avaiable. What we had we found to be tasteless and uninteresting and the waitress had too many tables to properly serve them. The high prices even made the visit more aggravating. There are many better...

I walked in to this Tudor building and loved the decor; one part cozy country home with a fireplace, and then a modern high tech bar. Both very inviting. The menu was very exciting and I wondered if they could pull it off. Well they did!! Flat iron steak with a delicious wine sauce, so tender, you'd think it was... More

My husband and I went here for our anniversary dinner. The restaurant is very romantic, with dimmed lights, lots of candles and nice art works on the walls. The tables are nicely spaced out so its a nice location for a romantic dinner. The waiting staff are very attentive. The food is very good, in particular the fish dishes. The... More

Lovely space with welcoming people. Some of the best oysters I've ever had and very fresh fish. Creative menu (seafood mousse stuffed zucchini blossoms, black cod in a mussel broth). Yummy desserts and wine. We enjoyed it!

A nice change from informal, beachy places to a lovely white table cloth restaurant for our last night in Southhampton. The restaurant was lovely, food excellent and service very good. It is pricey , but they are NY prices during peak season..Even the less formal restaurants were expensive esp coming from SC.. Would make reservations. Enjoy.

My husband and I dined at Plaza Cafe with another couple last night. Our salads were wonderful and fresh, my husband said his corn chowder was delicious. The rolls, as always, seem house baked, and are among our favorites of any restaurant. We all had the cod and loved it. Two of us had apple cake for desert, and though... More
