The service was excellent! We had the Sunday brunch, which could have been a little better… Some of the items were cold, and looked as if they had been sitting out for some time

A great neighborhood restaurant with awesomely eclectic diners. We had Sunday brunch, so can’t speak to the regular menu. The brunch was very good. The bacon and biscuits and gravy were perfect.

Really great service and special dessert for our special occasion. Loved most of the food we had, but a little disappointed in the mixed vegetables and salmon was good but not great. Also had fish and chips which was excellent. Ordered a starter, fried pickles - good taste but not a very crispy batter. Service and ambiance made up for any minor criticism of food. Would definately go again.

A Great Little Dive Behind Main Street with Good Food and Lots to Drink.

Dish on Market offers one the downtown-area’s best breakfast, lunch and happy hour spots for the business-class customer. Dish has a long and narrow bar area with high definition television on one side, comfortable booths and quiet scenery on another side, while at the same time, there are tons of seating upstairs overlooking the downstairs dining rooms. Plenty of food choices for meat-eaters and vegetarians.

I ordered the Buffalo Chicken Sandwich ($10), that came with fried chicken dunked in their Dish Buffalo Sauce, lettuce, tomato, and kettle chips; I asked to top it off with blue cheese crumbles and blue cheese sauce… it was a glorious mess. The chicken was a huge piece, bursting through the sandwich and the sauce was tangy, hot, and delicious. Eating through it took both hands and with so much drippage, I couldn’t put it down—nor did I want to after I started into it. My buddy ordered the Louisville Hot Brown ($14), an open face dish with house smoked turkey, Texas toast, mornay, cheddar cheese, topped with green onions, tomatoes, and bacon. It looked very hearty and delicious and he cleaned it up. It’s on my list to try next time I visit Dish on Market; along with their Bloody Mary that comes with strips of bacon!

I’ve been here a couple times before and every time, it’s a solid experience, with good food, a great staff, and reasonable prices. There’s plently of space for large groups and their bourbon list is extremely extensive—something that is standard for any good restaurant in Louisville.

Menu was not the same as the open table app. We ordered a variety of dishes including chicken. Seems like they cooked all the food and waited on the chicken to be finished. Chicken was warm rest of food including chicken sides were not very warm. The shrimp and grits were cold.

We cancelled another reservation to go local and we were disappointed.

Appetizer took a long time to come out. When it did, it was barely warm enough. Entree came out cold. When it was redone, it was just warm enough (barely). Positive, they did comp the entree for the error.

staff was not well equipped for the pre-concert rush. We had a 6 45 reservation, the table wasn't ready because they'd sat someone in our place, we ordered right away (drinks, appetizers, and main course) and waited over 45 minutes for drinks and over an hour for food. there was only one server we could see for a HUGE section and it looked like kitchen staff was helping to run food. I had to send my steak back because it was overcooked and VERY sweet. On a positive note, everybody was very nice, my husband loved his food, the appetizers were great, and the bourbon list was impressive.

We wanted a quick dinner before we went to the theater. I had made a reservation and we arrived on time and were promptly seated. Our waitress was very nice and helpful. We ordered drinks which were very good (Bloody Truman). Our food came quickly and we had plenty of time to walk back to the Kentucky Center for the Arts. We will go back again on another theater night.

Great little find in Downtown Louisville. Nice menu...not too many choices as to get lost in decisions, but just the right amount of offerings to please everyone. We had heard about the Fried Chicken and my husband picked that. The 3 pieces of perfectly crusted and browned chicken were HUGE! Plenty enough that we could have shared. The green beans and potato salad that accompanied it were just so-so though. I would have much rather been able to choose my 2 sides, as some of the other dishes sounded more pleasing. I chose a small Caesar salad. It was very tasty and the size was perfect. Our server was very pleasant and kept my husbands tea glass filled. Very good first impression and we hope to return!
