Summer Menu was sensational!...a burst of summer in each bite!...Princess Bride themed cocktails too!...great service as well!...so happy to have Dish right here in Lincoln...Thank you for a fabulous date night with my husband!
The cocktail menu was fun and inventive, and our drinks were delicious. The food was seasonal (corn, tomato, watermelon, greens, etc.), and the menu was creative. Both the duck and the pork chop were perfectly cooked, tender, not chewy or dry. Both dishes were slightly over-salted, but we still thought they were wonderful. The butterscotch pot de creme was to die for, and our server was outstanding. Lovely ambiance for a date night or dinner with friends.
exceptional food, beautiful presentation, attentive service. One would never guess it was the last night before the restaurant took its summer break. We are continually amazed at the imaginative food offered--many steps above anything else presented in Lincoln!
Come to Dish if you want inspired, elegant, and flavorful meals.
Creative cuisine. Small plates and larger plates. Delicious.
Food came out only warm.
Great food and atmosphere. We always enjoy our time here.
Terrific meal and attentive service. We will return the next time we’re in Lincoln.
the food is awesome. the best part is they change their menu every 2-3 months. i had the salmon and it was the best salmon i have ever tasted.
Excellent value. Wonderful experience. Definitely worth a try.
This our favorite restaurant for our dates. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. The food is always presented beautifully and the tastes are amazing. Thanks for being such great restaurant. We love this place!
If you are in Lincoln, you must dine at Dish! Excellent and interesting entrees, craft cocktails, and great service. Ask for John!!
The food is fantastic as always, but service was so poor. I took my business guests to the restaurant. There are only 4 of us, but we had to wait to get our food order, my glasses is empty, we waited for a long time to get our check and I was sitting awkwardly with my guests. We saw the servant over the bar and try to get his attention. He saw us, but continue to talk to the bar tender for 5 mins before he came over. I will not recommend this place if you have guests.
But the food is so good, I might try to come back.
Great food...little price compared to other restaurants in the area...wonderful service.
Fresh food, excellent service, intimate setting. Great to have fine dining in Lincoln!
loved the menu choices and the finished product was fabulous!
DISH is a treasure and treat. In the last two or three years since the new owners took over, the restaurant has become the standout in Lincoln for excellent cuisine. The food is delicious and obviously prepared with sensitivity and great care for presentation, taste and quality. I love this place.
Outstanding... interesting food/drink. Tiny mistake notifying server we were "his" so waited for adult beverages just a bit. Once arrived the experience was excellent.
I love the Dish, the chef is one of a kind, she is so creative. I love going because everyone that works there is great
One of the best restaurants in Lincoln. The seasonal menu offers fresh and locally sourced foods which are prepared to perfection!
Dish is an outstanding restaurant. The kitchen produces excellent, inventive cuisine; the atmosphere is elegant without pretentiousness; the wait staff are all very well trained and attentive; and the presentation of dishes is gorgeous. As vegetarians, my husband and I tend to prefer the appetizers and small plates, which also lends a variety to the meal that is much appreciated. In addition to other dishes, we had a mushroom soup with parsnips that was one of the best either of us have ever tasted. Menus at Dish change seasonally, in keeping with local availability of ingredients. A+
My husband I and I drove to Lincoln from Omaha for a concert. We chose this restaurant because it a received Best Overall rating on Open Table and there were numerous great reviews by other diners. We were very, very happy with our experience at DISH. The food was excellent, creative, inventive, full of fresh ingredients and rare pairings. We had the beef carpaccio appetizer with popcorn dust, and our entrees were the salmon and the halibut that came with lots of fresh vegetables, with brussel sprouts and potatoes and shared dishes. The wine list was small, but interesting - we chose a French Minervois that was very good. Highly recommend trying this restaurant if you are in Lincoln - it rivals any place that we regularly dine at in Omaha and beyond as we are also frequent travelers.
Good menu. Excellent presentation.enjoyable.
Our waiter was great, we loved the food, I would highly recommend!
Food and drinks were absolutely delicious and the service was great! A little expensive, but 100% worth the cost!
An outstanding restaurant in Lincoln. The cocktails were innovative and the wine list, though not vast, was selective and reasonably priced. The service was superb, unobtrusive and yet the server was there when needed. The menu was excellent, with a variety of small plates that could be used as either first courses or combined into a meal. Each of the different items ordered for our table of 4 was superb. The mussels and duck were outstanding. We would certainly return to this restaurant. The prices were commensurate with those of excellent restaurants anywhere, and lower than one would get in larger cities such as New York or Boston, but no lower in quality.
It was so nice to be “home”...the new menu choices are creative and delicious...”popcorn powder”...yes it was!...my mussels were presented in a way I have never tried and the beet chips...I could not eat just one...politically original cocktails were mixology originals...service from Jon and kind conversations with MaryPat made for the always perfect evening at Dish...
We had the most wonderful experience at Dish. The food, service and ambiance was beyond impeccable. Although a pricier restaurant, the quality and amount of food is absolutely worth every penny. My husband and I will go back again soon and feel this is easily our best dining experience this past year.
Excellent food and service.
Excellent service and food.
Great new fresh menu!
Love this restaurant, always a solid choice. We celebrated our anniversary with good & funnly named drinks, wonderful entrees and a decadent dessert!
as always, the type of dining experience we have come to expect. clearly the best restaurant in the city, and rivals the best in any of the restaurants i have visited around the world.
Go there for lunch. A better menu and food fresh and well prepared.
This is a gem for Lincoln! The chef will work with any food issues/preferences, but the need to do so is minimal, because everything is prepared with the finest ingredients. The wine selection is also wonderful without being cumbersome.
The brussel sprouts were out of this world!!! We had 4 people in our party and everyone's dinner was outstanding. The salmon, the filet and the duck are must haves!
Always enjoy going to the Dish. Great service and delicious food. Our service was a little slower than usual but we still enjoyed
It was a delightful, delicious meal. Our friends were there for the first time, and they were so happy they tried Dish. Our waiter was very helpful in making suggestions, and checking on us periodically. We are thrilled there is such a quality restaurant in Lincoln.
Great food! It was the perfect location to meet out of town friends and reconnect. Staff gave us all the time we needed the entire evening.
Excellent food, service and ambiance. The perfect place for dinner before attending a downtown entertainment event.
