Diner Reviews
  • "We were looking for a good restaurant in the Louisville area at around 8PM. We found the Dish On Market to try. When we walked in, we weren't too impressed. The decor was average and the restaurant seemed empty. However, the staff was wonderful. We were greeted at the door and shownn to our seats. The waiter was quick to bring us two glasses of water before we even looked at the menu. We ordered the fried pickles after looking at the menu. They were amazingly thick and crispy. With amazing sauce. I ordered the Malibu Chicken sandwich, which was absolutely amazing and unique. My boyfriend ordered their signature burger and couldn't stop raving about it. We ate until we couldn't eat anymore. We loved the food, and the service wa amazing!"

  • "The atmosphere is nice, the food tasted good but isn’t anything really special about it over all. I've got one beef, though. I set up reservations; it was one of many stops for an anniversary. I set up the reservation for the simple fact that there would be a note on file that I wanted a more secluded booth with a lit candle on the table. I even called a week in advance and made sure this could be done. When I got there I told them my name and said I had a reservation. The girl I spoke to just said “Oh that’s great just sit over here.” Not secluded at all, no lit candle. Just another couple walking in off the street. I didn’t want to blow my cover or cause a scene so I just let it be but it irked me a lot."

  • "We're grateful OpenTable offered Dish on Market as a selection for lunch in Louisville. Very good food coupled with kind, attentive service. Tried the fried pickled appetizer - tasty! I was in Kentucky so I enjoyed fried chicken and it was among the best I've ever tasted. My companion enjoyed a very fresh and delicious avocado chicken club sandwich. My only criticism of restaurant is condition of dining room - upstairs where we enjoyed our lunch, the dark carpet needed a cleaning. Old photographs hung on brink wall in shabby frames did not enhance the room and distracts from an otherwise outstanding food presentation. Everything but the ambience gets a top rating."

  • "Some friends & I were in town for a concert at the Yum Center & found this place on my search in Open Table. It's a quaint little place & we even got to meet the owner who is very friendly & helpful. The food was really good, we shared fried pickles which were so good. I had a burger for dinner & we split the best brownie ever! It was a fun place & I will definitely go back."

  • "I went to Dish with my 3 week old son and the staff was amazingly kind. They sat us where there was room for my stroller. No one treated me like a pariah for dining with a baby. Both restrooms have large changing areas too. Besides this the brunch buffet was great and expansive. My husband had a made to order omelet from Carl and loved it. I'd love to go back for lunch or dinner someday!"

  • "A cow-worker and I went for lunch around 1:00, downtown was still pretty busy. We had to wait only about 5 minutes for our table, we only have an hour break. We were expecting to run a little bit over with how busy it was. We both ordered and it came out within 10 minutes. It was one of the best burgers I've ever had! The fries were just mediocre."

  • "Had lunch here with family. Nice lunch menu with unique, yet affordable dishes. Excellent dill pickle chips! Very good house made Bloody Mary! Pretty good beer selection. Large bourbon selection. Wife enjoyed her curried chicken salad sandwich on pretzel roll. House vinaigrette is very good. Only downside was that it's very quiet inside, and the servers were a bit strange, slow, and not terribly great at their jobs... Would probably not return, except for the fried dill pickles..."

  • "This was a last minute stop for dinner while visiting Louisville. Worth it, but slow and felt dirty. Could certainly use a deep clean to the restaurant."

  • "The food was mediocre, the ambiance was lacking, the restaurant needs a serious update. It is in the old Delta Lounge location, and quite honestly the food at Delta was better. We did the brunch buffet and were very disappointed. Won't be back."

  • "My wife and I made reservations after a horse buggy ride downtown celebrating our 1 year anniversary. We've dined at Dish before so we knew what Dish had to offer but we wanted to try out new things on the menu. I had the 3 piece fried chicken, my wife had the hot brown. Our food was delicious. Our server checked in on us periodically but wasn't a nuisance. I definitely would recommend this place to anyone who asks for a great place to eat in Downtown Louisville."

  • "Hostess & servers were very friendly but we had to wait quite awhile for food to come out. When it did, green beans & potatoes were too cold to eat & not very tasty. Fried chicken was very good & hot."

  • "This was our first visit to Dish on Market. We wanted to visit a new restaurant to celebrate a birthday and an anniversary. We found Dish on Market while reviewing the Urban Bourbon Trail online. The Bourbon offering was extensive and the menu was diverse with many choices. We booked the table online and we had no wait when we arrived. We sampled various Bourbons with our appetizers and enjoyed a wonderful Friday night dinner experience. The food was very good and so was our server. The place was packed with people. We will definitely return. "

  • "I reserved a table for 15, we wound up having 20 and the staff had no problems accomendating seating. The management was outstanding when coming to reserving. Our group had limited time, so we were able to send in our order a head of time, and didn't you know it, they had the food hot and ready when we we arrived. This was my first experience with this facility and i would highly recommend them to everyone! I cannot wait to go back and enjoy their wine menu! :)"

  • "One big flaw. The menu were nearly illegible. Light grey and gold printing on beige background. Waiter knew it was a problem and said they are being reprinted. "

  • "I would not recommend this restarant. We had Sunday brunch and both service and food were poor. Only bright spot was omelet. Buffet was out of food and not replenished. Had to wait for 45 minutes for non-buffet item. "

  • "We went on a Saturday eveningat 8pm. It was my husband, daughter , friend and myself. My husband thought that the fried chicken was the best, moist and crunchy I had the blackbean soup which was pretty bland- no taste, no spices. The girls had the veggie burger and salad and they thought it was pretty good, the service was slow, after we were seated , it took about 4-5 minutes before the waiter came with the menus or water. , we would come again"
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "The food was wonderful. The service was good but a little slow. It was mother's day so understandable. The only thing I would have changed is the noise level of the entertainment. The singer was good but way too loud. Have your entertainer be background music, not the main entertainment. This will help to keep the overall noise level in your restaurant down because people will not have to raise their voices to be heard at their tables."

  • "Went to Mother's Day Brunch here with our two kids. The food on the buffet was excellent and we enjoyed the live music. We have been here for dinner previously as well. This restaurant is a great "date night" place for when you want grown up time but was also very kid friendly."

  • "Fantastic Derby Pie for dessert, even if it was a little small - it was great! Good comfort food, with excellent fried chicken and my first Hot Brown - which I loved. I ordered the Mornay sauce on the side, but it was so good I ended up drenching the Hot Brown with it - just perfect!"

  • "My husband and I were looking for a new spot for brunch and came upon dish. The atmosphere was very well done with exposed brick and historical photos. The food was excellent!! My husband had the buffet and I kept stealing perfectly cooked bacon from his plate! My eggs Benedict were had very balanced flavored and the roasted potatoes were outstanding. Great service, great food. We will definitely be back to try the dinner menu! So glad we know about this delicious find!"

  • "One positive thing is that we were able to get a table even though we were late for our res. It was Kentucky Derby Weekend & we were told 8:00 would be good but there is no way to stay for the races & deal with the traffic & get to a restaurant by 8pm. Anyway, there was PLENTY of tables open when we got there. The menu was more like 1/3 of what shows online. When I questioned this, I was told this was their Kentucky Derby menu. When I called & made the res & again to confirm the res....this little detail was not mentioned at all. That was very disappointing b/c there was ALOT less on the menu to choose from. The atmosphere was not that great. The tables are what you would find in a cheap diner....not as nice as we were hoping."

  • "My husband and I went there because of the great reviews but our meals were just ok. Started with the fried pickles, those were excellent. We both got ribeyes. They were cooked wrong and didn't come with all the toppings the menu stated. No tobacco onions, no bourbon glaze. Just steak on a heap of lukewarm mashed potatoes that were half mashed. "
