If your ever in Canary Wharf and in need of a venue for a business lunch then Plateau will be a natural first choice, especially if your out to impress. With cool views over the wharf at a great height and an uber futuristic interior, Plateau certainly stirs up the senses. My visit, though primarily a business lunch, was also to see if my recent dire experiences in a string of D&D London restaurants could be reversed or somehow salvaged. I was in luck, the first thing that impressed me was service which I usually approach with cynicism – expecting the level to drop significantly after the orders have been taken – it didn't. The level of attention and care waiters took was faultless and I found myself wondering if this is where D&D London had been hiding all of its really good waiters. Food was served in good time despite being in a larger group, though there were one or two reservations on the starters I had picked. The scallop ceviche with almonds, capers and dried cranberries was drizzled with a rather too acidic oil dressing which was off-putting enough for me to put my knife and fork down in just four mouthfuls. Luckily the main of monkfish in a nut broth helped to even that out but was served warm rather than hot. Overall an intriguing place but I'm still waiting for the day I can have the golden triangle of dining (service, food and ambience) all in one at a D&D restaurant and at this point in time I'm not sure it exists.
