    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!

  • Good Food but LOUD
    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.

    Went to try out during restaurant week & did not disappoint! Décor was simple, elegant & service professional & friendly. Food was delicious - described well in menu & elegantly presented. 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. Will definitely be back!

    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.

The scallops were wonderful, perfectly prepared, and the poached egg on the couscous really appealed. Desserts were well received by our group.

    My first time at Dish and unfortunately I will never go back. Food was excellent, however the service was questionable. Interesting how the only black waiter was assigned to only to tables with black customers. They had him running all over the restaurant and because of that, our service was very slow.Essentially he was set up for failure and that is not fair to him or the customer. This restaurant needs new front of the house management immediately. I plan to tell all that I know to avoid Dish. The experience was not welcoming and was a turn-off. I will spend my money were the color of my skin makes no difference as to the server I am assigned and the service I receive.

    We ate here for Restaurant Week, and so chose the restaurant week menu. For appetizers we had the lamb meatballs and deviled eggs, both were outstanding. For dinner, the Braised Short Ribs were melt in your mouth amazing, the sea scallops were good, but not outstanding. For dessert, the Salted Caramel Pudding and Nutella Chocolate Mouse, were both delectable. We had the recommended wines with each dish, and they were on par, great choices! We will be back.

Our table had the short ribs, chicken (with jalapeno mac and cheese- YUM) and the scallops- all of the entrees were amazing. Dessert was our only low course as we ordered the cookies and cream cheesecake only to have them run out before we were served. Overall a wonderful experience.

    As soon as I walk in I'm hit with this extra loud techno music that does not let up. As the restaurant fills on a Saturday evening it only gets louder. Too bad the ambience was a bad experience, as rest of the evening was very nice. Nice bar area with unique offerings, and the food was very good. Chef' whim was a well prepared salmon as was the braised short ribs. Just turn down, or off, the music.

    My husband & I had a delightful restaurant week meal at Dish and look forward to returning soon. Everything was great and the wine parings were spot on! The only problem was that they switched the cheesecake from cookies and creme to key lime, which my husband didn't like. They immediately brought out their signature caramel pudding which is delicious. Great meal and great service....thanks Nicole!

    We went early like 5:30. We were on that side of town and were looking for something nice but not crazy expensive. Dish was great! We ordered 3 different appetizers, calamari, lamb kabobs and the jalepeno mac and cheese. All were awesome, really great. I had wanted to try the manhattan chowder but there was a storm earlier so they didn't get it cooked in time. Service was perfect and we enjoyed a bottle of Proseco that was delish. THE most impressive thing Dish was on our way out the door our server ran out after us with a to go order of the chowder and bread, the chef wanted us to have it and apologized again. Well tried it the next day, it was delightful! Very flavorful lite & chocked full of clams. Dish is a must try you won't regret it.

    This is a great place to go with friends. The vibe is energetic and lively but not so loud that you can't carry on a conversation. The interior is clean and contemporary, high ceilings, large, open space. Most of the food was fabulous - the lamb meatball appetizer and scallop entree were perfect, with excellent accompanying sauces. But the jalapeno mac and cheese had chunks of chicken (?!) in it and very few bits of raw jalapeno, which made that dish a huge fail for all 3 of us. The Key Lime Cheesecake was served in a jar, and as such was not a slice. It was tasty, but some things should not be "foodiefied" in my opinion. Service by Marq was excellent. I'd definitely return, but be sure to ask questions about the food.

    We went for Restaurant Week and thought the three courses on the menu were excellent - we tried 2 different items for each course, and shared. Our server Brandon was attentive, helpful, and funny. His last move with the fried wonton was HILARIOUS! The only flaw was with the Central Market 4th course. The tuna was poorly trimmed, with stringy muscle tissue in nearly every piece, plus the accompanying chips seemed stale. It was our starter, and luckily everything else we ate was significantly better, but it was an unhappy start to the meal. I will definitely come back, though!
