    As always, our meal at DISH was incredible. The service, cocktails, and meals were spectacular. The new spring menu offered something for everyone in our party. As a vegetarian, I'm always grateful that I have multiple options on the menu. The asparagus appetizer was my favorite. My friends really enjoyed the mussels and duck fat potatoes. My entree was amazing - the grilled oyster mushroom confit. Every single part of the dish was perfect. We always appreciate the obvious care and creativity that goes into each part of the dining experience at DISH.

    The food was delicious and everyone enjoyed it. My husband was a little disappointed because he said his duck was cold. Otherwise, we had a great night with great food and great friends. I also have celiac and the staff was well versed in what items on the menu were gluten free and the chef was also extremely knowledgeable about cross contamination and provided great information about preparation. I felt very comfortable eating there.

    I wanted to love this - I had the blueberry lemon ricotta pancakes - they were burnt. When I told our server, she said ok - no offer to replace or refund - very disappointing. My son had the salmon which was good. He also had a Bloody Mary - I have never seen one served with two lonely Spanish olives. Very disappointed overall.

    Outstanding food, drinks, and service. I love this place! If you are looking for a restaurant in town to celebrate something special, this is the best place I can think of. Chef Rachel is not just an outstanding chef; she is creative and puts flavor, presentation, and culinary experience at the forefront of her craft.

    Every plate was a winter. Grilled bread with allium butter, the grilled Napa and arugula salad with marcona almonds, the carrot medley, the miso salmon. The fried chicken was the best I have ever had. The pacing could have been a little slower to allow us to savor the experience, but that's my only complaint. Absolutely a top shelf meal. No surprise the chef is Beard nominated.

    I was disappointed by the vastly reduced menu. The duck used to be better, I found the combination with the white beans, the egg and the goat cheese in a kind of salty sauce strange. I saw only a single fish option (salmon). The Dish used to be my favorite place for seafood in Lincoln. I always order the mixed fish platter. There was only a single steak option with looked bizarre. Why these few cubes of meat? A guy wants a steak when he orders a steak. I want choices between different cuts from New York Strip to tenderloin.

    It has been several years since we’ve been able to dine here again but we used to be regulars many years ago. I was nervous that the changes would be too much, but everything we ordered was outstanding. We started with the vanilla sesame brioche with hot honey butter (yum!) and the duck fat potatoes w/ chorizo, and hollandaise pickled mustard seed, arugula, radish and all of these flavors made an incredible dish! So delicious. My husband had the grilled striploin w/ leek confit, pickled blackberry, ricotta and I had the miso glazed salmon w/ kimchi rice cake, cabbage slaw, and charred scallion dashi. Presentation was beautiful and the bite of salmon with the crispy rice cake was an unexpected treat. We ended with ice cream for dessert. Our server missed that we ordered the pistachio chocolate tart and instead brought us one of each of the ice creams we were deciding between, but we didn’t correct and enjoyed them both. Overall an awesome dinner and hope to be back again soon.
