Thank you to the staff at Dish for an outstanding business lunch for a large party! The service was friendly and prompt. The menu impressed my client, and our large party was seated in a very intimate area of the restaurant. Highly recommended for a business lunch for both vegetarian and non-vegetarian options.

We came for Taste of Hartford special; Dish is one of our favorite places already. We were not disappointed. Superior food for the money and the atmosphere is always excellent! Lovely wait staff--polite and cheerful. We had to take our dessert home with us. Just a fabulous value for Taste of Hartford! I love to recommend this gem in Hartford. It is definitely worth the drive.

Caesar salad was great but that was the highlight. Service was slow and inattentive, even when I wanted to pay the bill. Scallops were meh: seared on the outside but not quite done on the inside. Also - the menu on Open Table does not match the menu in the restaurant. There are better places in town.

We went to Dish before a play at Hartford Stage. It was convenient to park at the theater and walk over to the theater. We made the reservation for two hours before the start of the play and had plenty of time for apps, meal and dessert. There were three of us and we all loved our meal. Can't wait to go back again!

Food and service was great! I used a $60 Groupon I paid $30 for. There were a few odd things though. 1) I was charge a $10 fee that I have no clue what for. My bad for not asking. 2) I was automatically charged a gratuity even though it was only a party of two. Was that because of the Groupon? Again, my bad for not asking. 3) Be careful if you eat outside, you may be propositioned for money from vagrants. The restaurant was more than willing to re-seat us inside, but we obviously didn't get any kind of compensation for the disturbance. Overall, I would try going again because the food (calamari, scallops and mac & cheese were excellent!), service and ambiance were really good.

I really enjoyed the food we ordered and would definitely return to Dish again. That being said, the items we ordered were not as described in the menu. They were delicious, but for instance, the pancake should have had peaches (according to the menu) but came with strawberries. And the crab Benedict should have come with asparagus but instead came with spinach. It was a little issue, but never really explained to us by our server, even when we asked.

Delicious food and a friendly server. Unfortunately, we were forgotten after sharing our order with the server and had to track him down when we only had 30 minutes before we had to leave for the theater. We were there a total of 1-1/2 hours - no excuse for rushing us through dinner.

it's been a while since we've been at Dish, so I was very happy to have such a wonderful experience there again. The food and service were excellent. This restaurant is on our Favorites list now -- one of the top restaurants in the state in my opinion. Well worth leaving the suburbs for the excellent food and lovely service. We will be back!

We came for the Taste of Hartford (again) and were so glad we did! The menu choices were
outstanding. My husband "up-graded" for the steak and I had the tomato pie. Everything was
perfect and we left feeling it was a marvelous value and a lovely venue. Service is impeccable! Just love Dish; it is our "go-to" place for every special occasions.

We had the taste of Hartford menu and I was very pleased. I was such a big fan of dish years ago and then the service seemed to slip. We had a bad experience and then didn't go back for a couple years. This time I didn't have any complaints. As always, leave room for dessert.
