  • After the OpenHouse

    We needed a good meal after a stressful open house and have heard good things about DISH. I'm glad they had Valet because we don't know the neighborhood and I'm still not sure where we would have parked (Grocery store across the street?). It was an early dinner on a Sunday, so the place was empty when we got there, but the staff was gracious and welcomed us in. The vibe was very cool (modern artsy), the sound system was fantastic (a bonus for me), and the indirect lighting gave the dining room a club vibe as it grew dark outside. The wine recommendation (Savior) was spot on. The food was wonderful! The Caprese Flatbread was a great starter, simple with fresh, handmade ingredients. We had the Scallops and Short Ribs for the main, both were flavorful, rich, and delicious. Deserts were very good as well. The Pumpkin Cheesecake Flight was a particular favorite. I enjoyed the Sea Salt Carmel dessert as well, but it was more of a savory than a sweet dessert than I expected. All that, and our waitress was a sweetheart. We'll definitely be going back!

    A lot of interesting items on the menu - not so much the "main" part of the dishes, but the things that are put together. The scallops were the best I've ever had. Eaten by themselves with the sauce, they were good. When eaten together with the poached egg, couscous and the rest of the ingredients - unbelievable! We were there early (5:45) on a Saturday night and it was still pretty empty, but with the décor and music it seems like an energetic location.

    We were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary and went to Dish for dinner. We had a drink at the bar first and then were seated. I did not know there had banquets but inquired if we could have one and they went out of their way to accommodate us. Our waiter was wonderful and let us dictate the flow of our evening, not a usual accommodation today in most restaurants. He helped us decide on our choices and was right on the money. The food was outstanding. The lollipop meatballs made for a great appetizer and our entrees were cooked perfectly. My husband had a steak and it melted in your mouth with a wonderful flavor. A great evening and we can't wait to go back. We live in the area so I think that will be often.

    Me and my partner throughly enjoyed our dinner followed by a great concert at the Turtle Creek Chorale. We both enjoyed our drinks, the cucumber martini and the mojito were perfectly constructed. We both enjoyed the spinach salad. He had the Scallops for the Entre and I had the Pork Chop. Again, the quality of both were top notch. The pumpkin cheesecake was a perfect ending to an incredible experience. We both look forward to returning here and enjoying other great meals.

    Dish is one of the more entertaining restraunts I have ever been to. We did the Drag Brunch and had a blast! Everyone in my party was excited and ready to come back with even more friends. Our server Randy was great and made sure our drinks were always full and I would highly recommend him to anyone. Keep up the good work and I can't wait to come back for dinner.

    We've eaten at DISH several times in the past but this time the food was much better than we remembered. I had a salad and the grilled shrimp and both were excellent! Our service was very prompt and friendly but not overbearing just perfect. And free valet parking is a plus in the Oak Lawn neighborhood. Was a great experience and I will definitely keep DISH on my list of favorites!

    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 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.

    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.
