    Beautiful open mezzanine French restaurant with wonderful service and waiting staff. Food was very good and extremely good value Christmas menu with deliciously plump and juicy Turkey breast, incredible pate and lovely desserts. Would have been 5 stars if the main courses came out quicker (we waited 45 minutes but it wasn't super busy) but we were having a great catch up so it didn't matter too much. Perfect place for a lunch meeting in Shoreditch / Old Street. Highly recommend.

    If you're looking to dine at a fine establishment in Old Street/Shoreditch, then look no further than Plate restaurant. I was immediately impressed by the snazzy surrounding of this hotel restaurant with it's comfy banquettes, marble tables, and open kitchen. The friendly staff who looked after me was friendly, patient and knowledgeable from the moment he greeted at the top of the stairs leading to the restaurant. The menu is seasonal British cuisine. Smashed avocado and poached eggs on sourdough bread was creamy, generous and excellent value of money. The 8oz sirloin steak was done as requested. Be aware of the salmond gravadlax and the hot seared bass. Delicious but those with a big appetite might still be hankering for something more substantial. The sticky toffee pudding was excellent - sweet, sticky and syrupy. The tables beside the floor-to-ceiling windows allows you a nice view over Old Street in the distance and it allows loads of light which makes Plate great for brunch. Book in advance to secure the best seat in the house. Because of its sophisticated surroundings, Plate is the kind of place you dine if you're celebrating a special/important occasion. Think dates, mother's day, birthdays, and client dinners. I'd definitely consider returning.

    Plate Restaurant in Old Street at M by the Montcalm Hotel offers top notch dining in a relaxed and modern setting. Although there is a ground floor bar and cafe in the hotel, my tip would be to head straight on up to the restaurant on the second floor. Here you can sit in the sleek glass fronted building, watching the hustle and bustle go by. Owner and Chef Director Arnaud Stevens has previously worked with the likes of Gordon Ramsay, Jason Atherton and Richard Corrigan. With that experience, Plate restaurant in Old Street is bound to be something special. A particular highlight of my visit were the signature Plate cocktails – designed by the bar’s own mixologists. These amazing cocktails are worth visiting for alone! My absolute favourite was the Naked Negroni – light, summery and refreshing, this cocktail was very drinkable! The staff were knowledgeable and attentive – they definitely knew the menu inside out, as they came up with spot on recommendations for me. I had the Plate signature bread flight to start, which is an absolute must if you visit this restaurant. The trio of warm, freshly baked breads were outstanding with the accompanying trio of whipped butters. The mushroom brioche was so light and flavoursome (not an overpowering taste of mushroom) and the onion whipped butter with crispy shallots on top was stunning. For mains, we had the Parmesan gnocchi with sprouting broccoli, almond puree and elderflower dressing and the Rump of lamb, with tomato fondue, anchovy, basil dressing and charred gem lettuce. If you are hungry, I would suggest getting a side to accompany your main. The buttered green beans were a great accompaniment to the lamb. Although the portions are not huge at Plate restaurant, the well balanced dishes were spot on to allow you to enjoy three courses and not feel utterly stuffed. This is particularly helpful, as saying no to desert here is not an option. This desert menu will appeal to anyone with a sweet tooth. I tried the Valrhona caramel chocolate mousse, with pain perdu, hazelnuts and passion fruit. This beautifully presented pudding didn’t leave you stuffed, as the passion fruit cut through the mousse and brioche perfectly. I was reliably informed that the British menu with a French twist is frequently changing to match the latest seasonal produce available. The relaxed, but smart setting, stands this restaurant apart from your average hotel restaurant. Whether you pop in for just a cocktail, or a three course meal, Plate Restaurant at M by the Montcalm is definitely worth a visit.

    In my opinion, one of the best bars in the world. If not the best. Staying in the M By Montcalm for work and have visited the Plate Bar multiple times. Their bar staff is amazing, to the point where I will be staying at the hotel from now on due to them. Tom invented a cocktail while I was here, now named the Chris (after me), that will be on the summertime 2019 menu. It's the perfect citrus summertime coctail, strong and tasty. The ingredients are extremely well blended so it does not have a strong taste of alcohol. Be careful! Both smooth and refreshing. Highly recommend. Order the Chris! Or any other cocktail... They're all amazing.

    Came here on a quiet Sunday. While the restaurant is beautiful and service excellent, I thought the set lunch menu selection was just average. Choose from a chicken breast, hake or vegetarian gnocchi for mains. We also assumed that ordering from the set lunch was optional but it’s not, we weren’t allowed to order from the a la carte menu during lunch (but our waitress was kind enough to offer checking with the Chef to make exceptions in case we wanted something else). Eventually we decided to go with the 3 course set - ordered the crispy pork skin to start, which was very decent, a little salty, but still yummy. The hake (I thought the citrus, capers sauce were a bit too overpowering and you couldn’t taste the fish) but cooked perfectly, and ended my meal with a delightful British cheese board. My partner ordered the gnocchi which he thought was very delicious, and the too-pretty-to-eat coffee brûlée for dessert which he inhaled as it was perfect. It was a little pricey overall (£54?) even with the set meal as the portions were quite small, and there were lots of add-on options i.e. cheeseboard was an extra £5, and coffee after another £4, which was a little disappointing. I am still on the fence with this one. All in all I thought the food was decent, but could suggest another similar resto for a similar price with a better set menu selection.... perhaps it’s worth returning to try their ala carte menu to make a final call. In my book, it’s 3.5/5.
