                                        The staff was so welcoming, attentive and engaging it made the brunch time very special. Like friends that you didn’t know you had!! The food was delicious and presented beautifully. Even though the prices for the amount of food seemed to be on the high side, because of the attention to detail and the amazing taste it was worth it.

                                        Server a bit too present. Not a fan of nose rings on servers. Wine pricing typically too high. Not very many menu choices. Enjoyed the art. Pleasant room.

                                        The most amazing meal ever. Had a party of three and choose dished that spanned the whole menu. Unique combos of items made each item burst with flavor. Zoey did an amazing job of explaining each part of the dishes. If we come through Lincoln again, this is where we'll eat.

                                        Our food was delicious. Even better, our server (?John?) was just wonderful. He was very friendly and informative, but best of all, he took great care to take care of our mom, who is visually impaired. He made sure to tell her where things were and just generally look out for her. It meant a lot to us, on Mother's Day. She was a bit sensitive to the volume of the music, but without her special circumstance, we would've thought the music level was just fine. Thank you for a wonderful brunch!

                                        The Sunday brunch menu offered so many options to suite everyone's tastes. The prices were quite reasonable and the portions were large. All the servers were polite and friendly; one server came to check and see if we had been waited on (yes, we had) -- we were admiring the restaurant decor! The food is delicious; servers know exactly what is offered and make great suggestions.

                                        The restaurant was clean and servers/employees friendly. However, food portions were small for the prices being charged. Two family members ordered a breakfast that had hashbrowns but there was hardly any hash -- the serving was very thin and both sides were overcooked. In my opinion, even Village Inn has better hashbrowns! Also, our server did not ask if we needed a refill on our coffee; we had to ask her twice. We were disappointed and do not plan to go back.

                                        Beautiful and delicious food! Attentive Service. Cocktails were excellent. It’s a little pricey, but the quality is worth it.

                                        Grilled Salmon was very good with nut chili, didn’t care for egg or mousse. Plum chicken was also very good but risotto was too salty.

                                        We enjoyed Dish's farm-to-table food, including the pesto-ricotta spread for the rolls, a super-fresh spinach salad and delicious chicken. Each entree had lots of color and texture, with a mix of savory-sweet flavors. The staff were super-attentive and the people-watching was a treat.

                                        Trying to appear high brow in a low brow cow town college neighborhood, seems out of place. Maybe that explains the palpable attitude. Only one staff did not exude attitude and that was the person who greeted us at the door when we arrived. Liked it a lot better when it was the Rotisserie.
