The entire menu is very interesting. The food pairings were excellent. Complex and complimentary. We thoroughly enjoyed the drinks, food and service. Deff world class.
We love going there. Our favorite place to eat. Love the food and service is outstanding
Wonderful food. It’s good to know there’s some higher end cuisine and flavors to be enjoyed in Lincoln. Went to dinner, but will definitely come back for lunch.
My scallops were amazing, as was the service, wine and company!
Absolutely fabulous meal! A dining adventure! Melon soup. Believe it or not, the glazed carrot second course was perhaps the favorite. Cocoa dusted steak. Yum! Just a terrific find in Lincoln Nebraska. AND they take reservations!
The food was perfection, and the service top notch. It was a wonderful dinner!
Fantastic food and one of the best waiters we’ve experienced.
As always the food and service was amazing!!
Great meal with best salad I ever had from presentation to taste.
Wonderful meal. We were able to take our time with our friends.
Had a great dinner at the DISH in Lincoln last night. The menu was a little confusing to us, as the descriptions weren't very clear to the layman... but I suppose if you are a chef they make perfect sense. But, our waiter did a great job of explaining what the three categories of dishes were.
The flavors and presentation were exceptional. Pretty sure that I tasted flavors that I've never tasted before. We startle out the beet and peaches with blue cheese. My wife chose the fried chicken (and fortunately it was the "boneless chicken" breed :). I chose the scallops and we shared the the strawberry shortcake for dessert. It was a great meal and for $165 with tip and 4 glasses of wine, I thought it well worth it.
Simply the best restaurant Lincoln has ever had. Better, in fact, than almost any restaurant anywhere.
Food was amazing and the plating was that of any 5 star restaurant! Service was top notch!
Inventive and amazingly delicious dishes. Best beet salad I have ever had. Farm to table at Sam Francisco quality. Loved it!!!
Dish has the best food in Lincoln. The plates are always exquisite, sourced with fresh and inventive ingredients. Service is consistently attentive and welcoming.
Absolutely wonderful food and drinks. Can’t wait to return.
Dish is always excellent. What a gem it is in the community.
I love the Dish.
Their flavors are so well thought out and the menu is always seasonal and fresh. They do a great job with their presentation. The wait staff is knowledgeable and top notch.
My wife and I like to share everything because there are to many great choices and we don't want to miss something!
wow! we were surprised at the quality and unique entrees at Dish! we will be back!
My guests were very impressed with the food, the service and the surroundings. It was a perfect way to spend time with friends
Outstanding meal excellent food- kind service. Every time I travel through or visit Lincoln I will eat at this restaurant. I’m a Chicagoan who loves and appreciates good food. DISH could stand up with any Chicago restaurant. Truly outstanding chef.
This is such a lovely restaurant. Everyone is very careful so it feels safe. The food is lovely. I highly recommend it.
The food was excellent the only downside was our waiter. I feel he could have been more attentive. We had to ask for water when we both had empty glasses for at least 20 minutes. He didn’t use his time well in my opinion. I realize that restaurants are having trouble hiring but he wasn’t the best. I will go back but definitely not want him again
The food was out of this world. So fresh and unlike anything else you’ll eat in Lincoln. The cocktails were spot on and the service was excellent as always. I love any excuse to eat at Dish.
Loved all the flavors. Amazing appetizers and entrees.
Exceptional as always ❤️
The food staff at Dish make any night a special occasion. We eat here frequently and are never disappointed. The menu changes frequently.
It is fine dinning but portions are too small for how much you pay. My food was also lukewarm when we got it. Food tasted good just needed more of it.
Great service. Dood was delicious
Everything was beautifully crafted. The service was top notch. We had a great dinner. Thank you so much, Dish crew!
The food, drinks, service, and watermelon 🍉 sorbet was 10/10
The food is delicious and and plated beautifully.
I would be difficult to overstate how good DISH is. I have eaten in great restaurants all over the country and many places in Europe, and DISH compares favorably with any of them. It is hands-down the finest restaurant that Lincoln has ever seen. Chef Rachel is an amazing talent. I can't recommend it highly enough.
Nice restaurant, good service, ingenious dishes and great value! Will return
Lincoln (NE) was a planned stop during a vacation, and DISH was one the recommended restaurants according to several sources. We were not disappointed. Great flavors combined in interesting and inventive combinations, beautifully presented. The cocktails were also really good. We dined outside and the patio was nice and quiet. Overall a great dining experience.
A fantastic restaurant. Fresh delicious food. We had the cantaloupe soup, the arugula salad and the kohlrabi, tomato and fennel salad.
As a main we shared a pappardele pasta with the basil broth - stunning.
Shared a bottle of wine too. We loved the efficient and knowledgeable wait staff and the relaxed atmosphere.
NYC food without the high prices.
Date night made perfect by our experience at DISH! Started with drinks at the bar then dinner. Drinks and food beyond exceptional and service was fun and attentive! Will definitely return again and again ❤️❤️❤️
Creative, beautifully presented food and drink, much locally sourced, served up by a committed, caring team. The best place to eat in Lincoln, bar none!
It was outstanding. A 10.
