Time Out New York
Step Up to the Plate doesn't skimp on the food-porn goods, but the dynamic between its two stoical subjects is too undercooked to truly resonate. Full Review

Slant Magazine
Paul Lacoste's almost purely observational approach allows him to come about as close to documenting the process of creation as anyone ever has. Full Review

New York Daily News
While foodies are sure to feel sated by the gastronomic splendors of Paul Lacoste's debut documentary, others may walk out with a strange sense of emptiness. Full Review

Los Angeles Times
As for the so-called "food compositions" seen here, like the film itself, they're more impressionistic and artistic than enticing. For a far more satisfying cinematic meal, check out the similarly themed "Jiro Dreams of Sushi." Full Review
