Had salmon Benedict before and it was excellent, served warm. This time it was cold, and server told me the sauce is old so that’s how it’s made, and brought me another egg.
His attitude was quite blasé.
The food and drinks top notch and the service excellent. First time going to DISH and we will be back!
A really cool place! Menu was current, fresh and really tasty.
The food and service was AMAZING!!! The quality is excellent. Highly recommend!
This was our first time here. It was a great experience. Staff is super friendly, our server Jon was excellent. I had the chicken and my wife had fresh made pasta. Everything was delightful. Dessert we has goat cheese custard it was also amazing. We will be coming here again for sure
Somewhat overpriced for Lincoln in my opinion this is not LA, NY, or CA.
Our entire experience was amazing. We celebrated my mom’s 81st birthday here and thoroughly enjoyed it. The chilled asparagus soup was presented beautifully, and it was delicious! My husband had the plum creek farms fried chicken. So good. We will be back!
Food was spectacular, the menu changes somewhat frequently according to the waiter. We'll be back many more times.
Our server was excellent - very attentive. My husband's steak was quite tender and flavorful. But my salmon and risotto dis was disappointing.
Incredible menu and dishes did not disappoint! Cocktails were out of this world delicious!
Good food! Good brunch spot!
We love Dish for our occasional date night! The service is fantastic and so is the food!!
Celebrated our sisters 60th Birthday !! Food and Service were excellent. The chicken lollipops, fried chicken and Beef meals were amazing....oh, and the ice cream !!! Wayne & Gary Dallas TX
We had the salmon, duck and sirloin entrees. All looked as lovely and mouth-watering as they tasted. A delicate mix of flavors and unusual ingredients. Beautiful presentation and mighty tasteful!
You cannot go wrong with anything on the menu. Everything is always amazing when we eat here.
So good. Everything was perfect
We visited for Mother’s Day brunch and we loved it! All the food was amazing - the sausage sliders and the breakfast burritos are a must try! Their cocktails are also fun and delicious- give the field of greens a try!
Had a great Mother’s Day with my daughters and would totally recommend this place!
First time at this restaurant, and I think this is the best food I have ever had. It was that good. I'm racking my brain trying to think how this chef could make food taste this wonderful. 100% recommend, and I can't wait to go back. Great service too. My husband is a steak & potatoes person, and he absolutely loved it too. Love, love it!
We love dining at Dish. The menu always reflects whats in season and opens my mind to new creative dishes. The service is always top notch. I can’t recommend it enough.
Service was outstanding and the food the best in Lincoln.
A quality experience all around.
A great place to go before the Lied. Enjoyed our dinner.
We had some issues accessing the menu using the QR code, but our server helped up out on that. Other than that snafu, we had a lovely meal and service...small portions, so maybe a bit pricey, but it suited us just fine that night.
Best restaurant in Lincoln no question. Owners, staff, menu, drinks, everything 5 stars. Not to mention the care and professionalism that Rachel and Marypat have put and continue to put into keeping customers and employees safe throughout the pandemic.
Dining at Dish always feels special; the food is deliciously prepared and presented - the service attuned to each diners' need. Perfect for a special occasion, or simply a regular treat.
Outstanding! Start to finish.....gorgeous and delicious....inventive and unique while appealing to a wide variety of palates.
Brunch was fantastic! DISH is an upscale restaurant, so expect prices to be a bit higher. However, the price is well worth it. We ordered the chicken and waffles and the breakfast burrito. Both were very filling and delicious. Our waiter was happy to recommend menu items to us and was very attentive. We will definitely be back to try more items on the menu.
Excellent meal and presentation! We sat outside so it was a little noisy with traffic at times. My husband loved the smoked banana dessert.
The Dish is our favorite restaurant, the food is always outstanding and eye appealing.
They were out of the filet on a Saturday night, in Nebraska, the beef capital of the US. The wine pour was low as well. The food was pretty good, but overpriced.
Vodka recommendation left something to be desired. Ran out of beef while we were sitting there preparing to order. Fried Chicken option was soggy. Super spicy, just perhaps not our menu flavor anymore. Nice staff
Overall amazing food. Beets were delish and filet was cooked perfectly.
Food was excellent, service outstanding as always.
We were in Lincoln for one night and looking for a nice meal. Could not have chosen better! We sat outside on the terrace comfortably with a heater. Our service was friendly and attentive. And the food was amazing. Love the curry butternut squash soup and the chicken popsicles. Highlight was the Filet. Perfectly paired with delicious veggies. Highly recommended.
Dish never disappoints. The menu is fresh. The service is great. The bar is top shelf. These great folks provide Lincoln a professional and original restaurant on par with any I’ve visited in a major metro in the US or abroad. Dish is simultaneously business dinner appropriate and date-night worthy. A great experience all around.
It was our wedding anniversary, and the food was amazing!!
Date night made perfect!!!
Dish is the probably the best restaurant in Lincoln. We've been here twice and both times it's been so special. The servers are so knowledgeable and make it such an enjoyable experience. We sat outside and they had a heat lamp ready for us.
We headed out for our FIRST dining experience in a restaurant since Covid (almost exactly a full year of eating at home/getting carry-out). We had brunch at DISH with reservations for noon. Our table was clean and at least 10 feet away from other tables with customers. The noise level and energy in the restaurant was perfect for brunch: fun music, but easy for us to have a conversation at our table.
The food was INCREDIBLE: the plum scones were absolutely delicious with the maple butter, the breakfast burrito and the sausage sliders were bursting with flavors and were beautifully presented. The chicken with berries was a generous portion and was an interesting and very pleasing combination. Returning to DISH for brunch exceeded our expectations & we are looking to returning again soon.
