    We chose dish for a pre-concert meal because it was only 2 blocks from the Lied Center and our son's All State concert. It was a very good choice! Although the menu isn't huge, the food is delicious and it is all farm to table and seasonal. Everyone found something they were happy with. The drinks are also seasonal which were also very yummy! Service and ambiance were also great! Highly recommend!

    This is the only place in Lincoln that you can gets creative cooking. The food was absolutely amazing. And you definitely have to get dessert. The butter scotch pot le crème is a must.

    We selected DISH for a introductory pre-meeting dinner with an important business associate on his first visit to Lincoln and Nebraska. Zoe and the DISH team helped him fall in love with our city and it's people! Zoe allowed easy conversation and a leisurely dinner while also being friendly, professional and attentive to water glasses. We picked an assortment of shareable dishes and couldn't pick a favorite as they were each delightful. At the end of the evening, our guest said it best, "this is the best first date I've ever had and Nebraska will never again be considered fly-over country in my mind!" Thanks for a fabulous atmosphere and meal to impress our client!

    Sunday morning brunch with a friend before he returned home after coming to Lincoln for Saturday’s football game. The food was wonderful! We did not realize that the Dish served a Sunday brunch … it was a wonderful discovery! We will return with more friends when looking for a restaurant with a Sunday brunch!

    Extremely cool, turn of the century, Art Deco corner restaurant near the capitol… Went for brunch and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The Bloody Mary was tasty and the herbed scone was a great start. My wife had the breakfast burrito and I enjoyed the chicken sliders. Both were well done and cooked perfectly. The bread and butter pickles under the chicken sliders finished them off just right. The burrito was huge and very tasty. It had a neat crunchy element that really satisfied… I’m ready to go back for dinner.

    Absolutely delicious! Wide-variety of unique appetizers that were presented with description of all ingredients. Wonderful service and presentation. Entrees were diverse with beautifully complementary flavors. Our table ordered steak and fried chicken -- both dishes came with accompanying vegetables, sauces, and flavorful accents that made the dishes completely out of the ordinary and into the extraordinary. Loved every minute of our dining experience!!

    Our server was fantastic. Answers our questions...checked on our plans for the evening so that we would be assured of making our performance at the Lied. Never felt rushed...we were able to enjoy each course and savor the flavors. Drinks were excellent and liked my "single large rock" for my single malt scotch. Wonderful evening and will definitely return! Thank you!
