Plateia — Ancient Greek for a Place to Meet, Celebrate & Feast!
In the spirit of its name, Plateia is a central place on the historic UCLA campus to meet colleagues and friends, share inspired food and drink, and engage in conversation. Recharge in the warm wood and stained glass ambiance of our dining room or relax with a glass of fine wine on our expansive patio under heritage olive trees.
Tried & True Meets Innovative & New! What’s Not to Like?
The Plateia menu is Mediterranean-inspired, California-fresh. Enjoy dishes from seasonal offerings with bright flavors and bold presentations featuring locally sourced products such as seasonal fruits and vegetables, artisanal cheeses, sustainable seafood, and much more. Find food to fit your mood from deliciously healthful choices, to surprising comfort foods, to innovative options that expand your food experience and excite your palate.

This team of creative and skilled culinary professionals knows how to use tradition for inspiration and how to capture the difference that fresh and local make to flavor and quality.

Here’s a Tip. Plateia is Gratuity-Free…Really!
Plateia is a gratuity-free restaurant for à la carte service — we pride ourselves in directly investing in our staff by providing a fair wage that is not dependent on tips.
The best way to thank us for our warm, attentive service is to tell your friends and colleagues about your visit. Spreading the word about our commitment to excellence is our best reward!
Enjoy on-site, worry-free parking while you dine.
This is one place in L.A. where you needn’t worry about parking. Guests of Plateia are welcome to use the ample parking structure at the UCLA Meyer & Renee Luskin Conference Center. Rates are reasonable, too, with 1-2 hours charged at just $4 to $6 dollars.
