The dinner menu was a piece of paper that looked like it had been printed on a printer running low on toner cartridge. The faint writing and the low light made it impossible to read. Thank goodness there were only 6 items to choose from.

I took my staff to the Mad Platter shortly before Christmas, touting it as a great place to eat. I was sadly disappointed. The first thing you see is a board stating the specials of the day--and a copy of the specials placed at each table.

The 4 course menu here offers copious amounts of food but the servers are great about suggesting sharing. It makes for a good value and you will still want your main course when it arrives. Mains are well done here and beautifully

The Mad Platter restaurant can be best described as "shabby chic". The food is tremendous and the service is great !!!
It's located in the heart of historic Germantown. I've eaten there several times and never been disappointed.

Pros:
- nice, romantic, quiet atmosphere
- patient, friendly, and informative server (not stuffy though!)
- great food: we had a duck dish, and rack of lamb dish, and a filte mignon dish, and all were delicious and great portions. The asparagus with white truffle oil made us all swoon.
- ingredients all taste so fresh and alive. I think their thing is using fresh, seasonal ingredients, and shaping their menu accordingly. It shows.
- for the quality of food, we had a pretty cheap meal; the 6 of us each had an app/salad, an entree, dessert and coffee (no wine) for $220. You do the math.
- open on Sunday for dinner
- There is a cheap ($30-$50) 5 course option which allows you to chose a soup, salad, appetizer, entree, and dessert. Portions are big enough that it's a great deal for 2!

Cons:
- I can't think of any.

The Mad Platter provides a unique dining atmosphere in an old restored home. The menu offers eclectic dining experiences and changes often. The atmosphere is very romantic and perfect for special evenings. The Bananas Foster (if its on the menu that night!) is to die for!!

PROS: Unique menu offerings, romantic, quaint

The ambience is awesome. The food, well, so so. My wife and I tried several different menu items, but found all to be just okay. For the $60 meal, there are several better options around town (and a lot safer places to park your car).

A meal at the Mad Platter is unfailingly familiar and comforting. Because the place has been around a good long while, the menu has been tempered and tested many a time, leaving only the cream for you to try. That's not to say that nothing…
