In town for the weekend and looked online for something close by. We arrived on a Fri. 4/20 at noon and the door was locked although hours posted said open at 8am. Customers walked up confused with no sign posted. Tried phoning and only answering machine. No idea. Went back the following day and was told there was a private event. We did go for brunch on Sat. as it is 3 min. from Hotel. Ordered the avocado toast which said came with Spring Salad. No salad but a not so fresh bowl of fruit. The avocado was not even on the toast just a bit sliced on the side of the plate. Overall not very good at all and would not go back.

We have eaten at Dish twice before a show. Both experiences were excellent. The bourbon burger is phenomenal. The calamari and stuffed mushrooms appetizers are delicious. My husband enjoyed their cocktails. Our server was helpful, and the food arrived quickly. It’s a short walk from the theater.

The folks at Dish on Main were happy to make a sandwich for my friend that wasn’t on the menu. It looked excellent. I rated the food a bit low because I am not a fan of the taste of liquor in dishes. I ordered a dish which obviously had liquor in it and I didn’t realize.

Food was AMAZING!! Service was significantly lacking. I made reservations days in advanced and we were sat in the bar, which we don’t drink and it was during happy hour. The male bartender was good however he went on break after we ordered. The female staff of about seven, all gathered at the entrance way taking and chit chatting. I had to go to the bar and ask for more water as well as our check and a box.

I Googled best places to eat breakfast in Louisville and DISH came up in the Top 3. A friend and I were looking for a new place for brunch after attending church. I made an online reservation and when we arrived at our appointed time we were seated rather quickly. However, it took more than five minutes between being seated to get the attention of our server. We were seated in a balcony area and it took a long time to get our drinks and food. I ordered the breakfast Hotbrown , wanted the buffet, but the dried out food in the trays was not very appetizing (we could see overhead from our seat), not to mention the number of shirt sleeves hovering over the eggs and hash browns. Also, I received my Hotbrown and there was no bacon to be found...I believe there was supposed to be bacon, but I did get my protein via the Turkey.

We had a group of 7, for dinner prior to a UL basketball game. We all enjoyed GREAT food, and even our "picky eater" found something that she liked. Our waitress was great, taking all 7 orders by memory, and all of them coming out correctly. One note: We were told at the end of placing all of our orders that the fried chicken would take 20 minutes. Had he been told that at the time it was being ordered, he may have considered changing it...

The service was great. It was a comfortable place. We asked for a quiet table and that was honored. The special, salmon, was very good as were the grilled vegetables. We split a dark chocolate volcano cake with ice cream for dessert and it was fabulous.

My nieces enjoyed their meals (chicken and waffles; Bourbon Burger) but our meals were just ok (Smoked pork Flatbread; Shrimp and grits). The smoked wings were great! I recommend you stick with the "local" specialties or burgers.

Good eatery. Food was all well cooked. Assortment for a Sunday Brunch was good and plentiful. Short on biscuits this morning for some reason though. Service good. Quality of food was good, nothing special but very good none the less. For some reason I was expecting more after reading other reviews and information on the place.... not sure what I was expecting but did expect more for some reason.....BUT I will go back and would go back more if I were still living in Louisville.

The 2 Items(Italian Melt and Meatloaf) that I wanted to try from the menu link on OpenTable were no longer options. I had the fish and chips. The fish and shoestring/straw fries were very good. The Napa slaw was luke warm and a very small portion. The service was good. My friend had the Hot Brown, not the best in town. Wasn't very filling. Will go back again to try the shrimp and grits, looked very good.

hate to say that we were really disappointed with our meal at dish. we did enjoy the atmosphere, and i must say that the fried chicken was delicious, but everything else was disappointing. it seemed like the calamari and hushpuppies were just frozen products that you could buy at the grocery. we are from out of town, so based on the description, we had just been hoping for a more authentic "small plates" local meal.

Love coming here but we were sat upstairs right at the top of the stairs. There was a large group so I am assuming tables got pushed around but I would not want to sit at the top of the stairs again where traffic was very high. Waitress was awesome and the food was great as usual. Just wasn't keen on where the table was positioned.

Dish on Market was the perfect pick before the play we attended at the Kentucky center. We suggest letting the restaurant staff know that you will be attending an event to speed up the service.

We ate at Dish on Market before a play at Actors' Theatre. It was a pleasant 2 1/2 block walk. The Sunday brunch was tasty but not "over the top." There were several prepared dishes and an omelet station. The atmosphere was very welcoming.
