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!

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!

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 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.

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.

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

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.

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.
