First time here. 5 stars for attentiveness of servers. Best I've experienced maybe ever, but at least in a long time. The food is good. GooglePlace - February 2018

Very nice atmosphere for a slightly more formal dinner. Unique Scandinavian food, great service and great spot for a date. GooglePlace - February 2018

What they prepare is amazing. Extremely creative menu although it's a bit limited. The cuisine emphasis is northern European. Don't expect many staple dishes of French, italian, or Californian fusion styles. Pricey for casual dining. GooglePlace - February 2018

They've got some special dishes that you don't see at the other places, like elk and blodpudding. Ambient light is dim, dark interior design theme. They serve very slowly; but good for having conversations GooglePlace - January 2018

Unique Food Experience When I think about great food, I tend to remember my mothers cooking, then I think about restaurants that have wowed me with their explosive flavors and wondrous environments. I have had meals which stopped me cold mid bite to remember that having taste buds is one of the greatest joys of being a human. Plaj has given me one of these experience. As a group of four we had appetizers, oysters, soup, salad, entrees, and desserts and all of us found ourselves struck dumb lacking words to describe how we felt at different times throughout the night. A crawdad soup, features the best lobster bisque you could imagine, but light, silken texturally perfect. Croutons, which added the crunch and sour salty bread, then a rich wonderful cognac whipped cream. And, as almost an afterthought, a dill oil. Why would all this work, I don't know, but it is amazing and made all of us forget that we had even ordered other food. Every dish is a reminder that there are people in this world, wonderful people, Chefs that care about food and care that it is presented in a form that makes you fall in love all over again. The dishes look like real food, they taste like the memories of childhood and loves lost, they exhibit the wondrous feeling of being a human being and enjoying life. The staff are wonderful and the represent people that are actually happy to go into work. They have tasted the dishes, they know the menu, they even know which drinks you might like throughout the night. They are well trained, but more importantly they treat you as a person and are just as excited to share your excitement at the wonderful meal. If you are in the City, and find yourself wanting something worth your dollars, stop by. Have a drink, have some oysters, ask an employee what the best dish is of the day, and then enjoy a ride to food greatness. GooglePlace - December 2017
