Bottomless (grapefruit) mimosas were A+. Service was great, except for the part where the server dumped a poached egg straight into my purse 😝. Everyone was super nice though. Food was pretty good, ambiance was nice if a little loud (but that might have just been the drunk boys at the next table). Ample (free) parking is a plus. Would definitely go back and try again.

Went for a quick Valentine's lunch. Had a burger and salmon fillet. Both were great! Juicy meats. Fresh veggies. Not a bad place if you need a quick bite or if you want to hang out for a few hours.

Never disappointed with Plate 38! Delicious food and perfect service. Their asparagus bisque is delicious as is the skirt steak and all fish dishes. In the mood for a great hamburger? Give Plate 38 a try!

The location at the corner of two busy streets results in lots of road noise if you are seated at the walls next to the streets. We had a group of 5 for Saturday brunch and our table was already set up when we arrived. Unfortunately it was next to a busy street. Suggest asking for an interior table when making reservations. The food an service were very good. The brunch portions are quite large, too much for us older folks.

Hadn't been here in a while, but it's one of our go-to restaurants, so not having other plans on New Year's Eve, we went (and have been there once or twice before NYE). Unlike most other restaurants, they allow you to order from the regular menu on holidays rather than being locked into the prix fixe most places have which is usually mediocre and always overpriced. We enjoyed delicious cocktails, wine, oysters, pasta, salad and dessert, all for much less than the $75-150 per person other places were charging, and all at the same level of excellence that the kitchen always pulls off (Plus Chef Roberts' creativity). As a bonus, they are right on Colorado Blvd, so you can stroll down and see the Rose Parade campers. It is a rare restaurant that can satisfy for both special occasions as well as casual drop ins, and Plate 38 excels at both. Thanks, Plate 38, for another great holiday dinner!

Inventive menu with a wide variety of choices for different tastes. Had the cinghiale on pappardelle, ah, an authentic taste of Italy!!!
Great service in a fun atmosphere.

We had a tasting meal, "Christmas in Paris" which was nicely orchestrated. Each plate was different, engaging, yet not too filling. The wine pairings were appropriate and stepped up in a logical fashion, along with the "narration" provided by Michael.
Enjoyable and nicely paced.
