Reviews for Platter

So I finally got my steak and it's overcooked to the point it's hardly edible seriously avoid.

I wasn't impressed with Platters. The service isn't much to brag about; we must have waited 40 minutes for our orders. This, after some 15 minutes before they took our order. Don't get me wrong; I usually do not mind a delay in returning to the workplace, but not this time. Apart from their seafood chowder, which is apparently very tasty, nothing else stood out to me. It might have been their "off day/period" as I've been here only once and during lunchtime. Sorry Platters.

Chose to eat at Platter for a special occasion due to the $30 special. The service and food was excellent, very good portions. Will definitely recommend to others!

Went to dinner with two friends on Thursday 25 July. We went with the $30 entree and main special and all had a house wine at $6.00 each. The wine was great, normally house wine is pretty much below average but this was fine. The meals were delicious and well presented and were good size portions. The staff were attentive and as we decided to sit outside made sure that the gas heaters were on. Would definitely come back here.

Came here for dinner with our indoor netball team 15/1/13. There were 9 of us. Service was a little on the slow side in between courses but on a whole the experience was great.
Had a fabulous dinner. The $30 dinner deal was wonderful and we were very impressed with all of our meals. Would definitely visit again.

Came here for a work do - very disappointing. Bar staff were woefully unable to cope with multiple orders - asked for a G and T and was met with blank looks then offered a ginger beer!
Big group was served very slowly with over a half hour difference between some people receiving mains - with staff unable to give estimates and seemingly unaware that some people hadn't been served, while they were clearing. Might be OK if a small group but I would not recommend having a function here. Food was OK, but not brilliant.

The food was very bland, and the Baklava I had for dessert tasted like it had seen too many days in the fridge. The waitress was lovely but a guy (who I assume was the owner) seemed very grumpy and this brought the whole atmosphere down.
If you are looking for a reasonably priced convenient meal in Newmarket then this place is okay, but if you are fussy about good food like I am, then give it a miss.

We had a terrific dinner two weeks ago. The $30 special was a really good deal - the 6 of us chose a variety of starters and desserts to share, and all were delicious. We all had different mains and were thoroughly pleased with our selections. Would definitely return, and in fact am taking my workmates there shortly.

Nice place to dine. Nothing overly special I can say about it. Staff were friendly enough, no real effort to build a rapport with us, but were never rude. Had a special going which was a entree and main or main and dessert for $30. I chose the snapper for my main which came only on mashed potato with no recommendations of needing side dishes such as salad or vegetables. Overall a mediocre experience.
