    The service and food was outstanding. Our server, Randy, was very knowledgable about all aspects if the menu and all his suggestions were absolutely great. Service was right on time and just the right amount of interaction and discussion. Super location and ambiance. We had three different fish items and all were fresh and prepared very well, in one word delicious.

    We took a group of eight for a 16th birthday party for 2 girls and had a blast. The food was extremely good and Randy our waiter was outstanding and not only took care of us very well but handled the five teenage girls with respect and made them feel very comfortable and welcome. We started with calamari, wild mushroom and bleu cheese flat bread and an avocado with blue crab that were prepared very well and very tasty. The flat bread was wonderful full of mushroom goodness blended with the bleu cheese and the arugula was a nice counterpoise. Calamari was perfectly cooked and crisp with a great sweet chili sauce. Mains were the giant pork chop which I had that was the best pork chop I have had in a long time and cooked to a perfect medium.

    We were visiting Dallas and read good reviews of Dish. It was in a great location so we decided to try it....the food was amazing...the drinks and wine were excellent. Most of all the service was the best! Out server Randy made us feel at home and was very knowledgeable about the menu. In addition, he tooM the time to answer questions about local events and clubs. Randy made the dining experience even more enjoyable!

    We were seated next to two very small children. Fortunately the children were fairly well behaved so we did not request to be moved. There was a table for two between us and the kids and another couple requested not to be seated there. We could not make a reservation for 8:00 and as we dined we noticed that at 8:00 they had several empty tables. When we asked we were told they did that in case they had walk-ins.

    Our light rekindled celebration of friendship was made a memorable moment, by the excellent service provided by our server Brandon, who was on point when needed. Chef Garreth Dickey's amazing entrees, once again, provided our table nothing, but a savory and delicious dinner to share and remember. Their drink menu host quit a selection of spirits that can accommodate any item on their menu, so be adventurous. With all said and done, we'll definitely be back!

    Three of us took a girlfriend for brunch on Sunday to celebrate her birthday and didn't know about yhe Drag show. We loved it! Food was great, Mimosas delish and affordable, service was good and the show was very entertaining. The performers were nice enough to pose with patrons for pictures. We'd definitely recomend this brunch! I heard dinner is great too so I'll be back!

    FoodForThoughtVIP
    Dined on 8/30/2014
    This was our first time at Dish. We read some reviews that mentioned how loud the restaurant is but even with that we were not prepared for the extremely loud table of 5 seated behind us, adding to the rest of the restaurant noise. As for the food, it was good, but not enough of it. We split a salad, which was adequate in portion size. I had a shrimp and grits special that was very good but I left hungry, which really never happens to me when I go out to eat. My wife had scallops, which were cooked perfectly and were delicious. We were interested in dessert but couldn't stand the noise and the obnoxious people seated behind us, so we passed. We're thinking if we go back it will be quieter sitting at the bar, so we might try that.

    Went to Dish for restaurant week and was delighted by food and service. We were greeted promptly and seated even though 2 of our party of 8 weren't there yet. Our waitress Lauren was spectacular: both knowledgeable and eager to please. Everyone was very attentive and food was great! Would definitely go back. Only complaint is it gets a little loud for a table of eight to always hear each other well.

Lamb meatball lollipops as an app were well seasoned with great sauces to excite the taste buds. Scallops perfectly cooked- an item often overdone here in Dallas. omg on the salted caramel pudding.

    We celebrated our 34th wedding anniversary at Dish and they very considerately gave us a roomy booth with a great view of the kitchen- even though it was a very busy evening. Our waiter, Randy, was both friendly and professional - the perfect combination- especially for Texas. He has been waiting tables longer than we have been married, and it showed. We appreciate the extra dessert and the generous wine pours to help us celebrate. The food was outstanding and creative. Many thanks for a great evening.

    1. Valet manners - # 1. Opened door for my guest. WOW. don't get that to much in Dallas and I always have to tell the valet to do it. 2. Only issue - Any restaurant that places silverware on wooden table is bad hygiene. Take a hint from Romano's Macaroni Grill.

    I had the best pork chop in months at DISH. I've paid twice as much at other more high end, expensive restaurants. Their appetizers are fun and inventive. Nice wine list by the glass. Only negative is that when 1/2 full or more it gets noisy. Go early in the evening and early in the week.

    My favorite was their starter "ceviche" that was blocks of crisp watermelon with blocks of wonderfully fresh tuna with jalapenos and some wonderful sauce, that I believe included miso. The lamb meatball lollipops were fine, just not very interesting. The halibut special had some fabulous sides, but the fish itself was overcooked and thus a bit hard and dry.

    Great for a Sunday brunch! It was my husband's birthday, so I wanted to celebrate it by having brunch. The food, the service, everything was perfect. On a scale from 1-10 (10 being the very best) I would give it an 11!!! The Bucket of Bubbles is genius! LOVE IT! The chicken and waffles was perfectly prepared with a crispy waffle and a lightly breaded chicken breast. My skillet with chorizo was lip smacked yummy. Our daughter ordered the yogurt parfait and a side of fries. The fries are probably on my top 3 list of the best fries ever!!! Leave room for dessert because you will mad that you didn't. We ordered one of each of the desserts and were so HAPPY we did. My husband's FAV was the Salted Caramel pudding!!!

    The best part about brunch is the $10 bottles of champagne and you can pour your own juice so you don't have to worry about your mimosa bring too sweet. Food is just OK. Service is borderline terrible. We waited forever with empty drink glasses and our server was never anywhere to be found. With as many good brunch spots as there are in Dallas, I won't go back.
