I understand the concept of small plates but find it ridiculous to be served french fries and salad 15 minutes after sliders and skewers. This is lazy and/or arrogant of the kitchen to think that's appropriate. Our server was great and the food was good...More

We went here after an event at the Opera House and enjoyed a bottle of wine and 3 small plates. The scallops were amazing, and we also loved the bbq spare ribs and fish tacos. It was quite crowded but the service was still good.

Great location near sports stadiums and music venues (walking distance). Seating outside is great for city views and people watching. Servers are quick and knowledgeable, food was great and fresh. Nice variety.

I was hoping for a fun experience at Small Plates but was a bit underwhelmed. The food wasn't bad but neither was it great. My beef slider was overdone. The other selections were decent but not exceptional. The restaurant suggests 2-3 plates per person. My...More

We stopped here mid-afternoon for a glass of wine and a snack. The server was friendly and helpful. The food was delicious - we especially liked the tuna. It's a tapas-like concept where the table orders small plates to share. We were just looking for...More
