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.
We had another great experience at Dish tonight. The plum Creek chicken, ceviche, Halibut, beef tartare, and pot de creme were all delicious. I am always amazed at the unique flavors and combinations. The service is fantastic and always able to answer questions.
Unique and delicious dishes from appetizers through desserts. Great servers.
Fun drink specials.
We were seated promptly and the front of house staff were attentive without being obtrusive.
The kitchen produces inventive, sophisticated and delicious dishes. For our entrees, we had the agnolotti (a light, stuffed pasta) with sliced peaches, cherry tomatoes confit and a basil consomme--divine! The chef and her team specialize in using local ingredients which means that the dishes may vary from night to night, so this is not a place to go if you want only the tried and true.
Our second Friday night in a row at Dish. The team does an excellent job. We are always warmly greeted. The menu changes frequently and it is consistently delicious and well prepared. We love the creativity and the presentation of the dishes. The kitchen is always willing to make slight dietary modifications. We can always count on an excellent experience. It is, without a doubt, one of the best restaurants in Lincoln, if not THE best. Kudos to MaryPat and Rachel and their team.
The Dish is a truly lovely restaurant. It was quiet and pleasant and the food was truly wonderful. I really appreciated that they had small plates as well as full ones. Love to go there.
Outstanding! The chicken was divine! Would highly recommend the Dish for a gourmet experience.
Wonderful halibut, pickled kohlrabi, and those cocktails!
One of the best restaurant meals I have ever had.
We enjoyed Sunday brunch at Dish, and is was wonderful! Unique and tasty menu choices, in a comfortable relaxed atmosphere. We also appreciated the non-alcohol drink choices.
Great food, very unique dishes and service was excellent!
Amazing food and service! We will definitely go back
Must try melon+snap pea and nettle+egg pasta!
The menu just keeps amazing us. Rachel and Mary Pat are the best,
We had a delicious meal last night, as always. We've been so pleased with the service, environment and food that Marypat and Rachel offer. Jon was our server, along with Claire, and they did a great job. Dish is our favorite place to eat and we will always be loyal customers.
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!
