    Absolutely spectacular dinner. Staff were polite, professional and knowledgeable about the items on the menu. I presume the drinks were from a local mixologist as the Heartbeet cocktail with Gin, Beet And Grapefruit juice, lavender and lillet blanc was just incredible. I could go on and on. We traveled from Dallas and this on par with anything DFW offers.

    What a pleasant surprise in Lincoln! We we passing through on a long road trip, and thoroughly enjoyed our late supper at Dish. The food was inventive, fresh and tasty, our server was welcoming and forthright with suggestions, and the cocktails were excellent. The room is somewhat staid, and was very quiet on a weeknight, so the atmosphere was likely a little more muted than when things are at their peak. We especially loved the Charred Green Beans - that dish alone merits 5 stars!! Be aware that the online menu is out of date...some items we were looking forward to were not available.

    DISH RestaurantResponded on August 30, 2022Thanks for keeping us on our toes! We do our best to keep all online postings up-to-date with our ever-changing seasonal offerings, but we were one step behind last week! We're so glad you enjoyed your meal with us. Please visit again next time you're in the area!

    Our waiter, Sean, was fantastic. He was attentive in the right amount, not overbearing. Food was spectacular. Wine selections were unique and intriguing. Ironic that many of the food ingredients are locally sourced, but the wines were mostly international. Would be interesting to include some Nebraska wines in their offerings.

    Dish is not just a meal, it's an experience. We love that their menu changes with the seasons. I've personally seen the chef at the farmer's market loading up on beautiful produce multiple times--always a great sign. Every component of the meal is considered. Our service is always on point as well. Can't say enough great things about Dish.

    The food was cold, undercooked, lacked salt and acid. The meal was underwhelming. The service was lacking any of the basic steps of service and was below any measurable standards set for a restaurant at this price point. The best part of the meal was the non alcoholic drink my partner had. It is possible that our visit was just unfortunate. Go and judge for yourself.

    We always have an outstanding meal when we dine at DISH. We love how the menu changes every few weeks to take advantage of seasonal, locally grown produce. It’s always a surprise to see what new menu items there are. We were there on a very busy night but the staff was attentive and helped each other take care of their guests. The kitchen sent the plates out in a timely manner. We had a very enjoyable evening.

    Absolutely stunning restaurant! It has a good ambiance, very tasteful and comfortable. The staff were polite, knowledgeable, and friendly. The food, oh man the food! The grilled peaches were the hit of the night! They were “roll your eyes into the back of your head” delicious. The Korean meatball dish was solid. The rolls with honey butter were perfect. And the Strip Loin was amazing, the broccoli and lions mane mushrooms stood out as especially fabulous in the medley of side vegetables. And the Pots de Crème for dessert was the perfect way to end the meal. There were two in my party and we split these dishes. We left feeling full and satiated but not overstuffed and sluggish. Bravo Dish! Sincerely an excellent dining experience.

    What a great dining experience. Everything was top notch from the service (Jon a real pro), drinks (excellent cocktails) to the appetizers and main courses. Almost wept to eat the beet appetizer- the best we’ve ever tried. And the fried chicken! Such a great dinner. Would highly recommend and can’t wait to try again. Kudos to Rachel and staff for executing a wonderful dining meal and experience
