    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.

    It was my second time at Dish and I’ll surely be back many more times. The service and food are phenomenal. In my opinion, it’s easily the best restaurant in Lincoln

    We were there for a special occasion. We were seated in a far corner away from everything. I faced a wall and had no view of the rest of the restaurant. I know we should have asked for a different table, but it shouldn’t have been necessary. There really was no need for a table in the corner where we were seated. So, basically a special night out was spoiled by the lack of ambiance. The food was very good and the service was adequate. Not what I expected for a high end and expensive restaurant.

    I have been frequenting this corner restaurant for over 20 years, however, I moved away over a year ago and had not visited since new ownership. I was back in town last night so made a stop. This was the first time that I have ever been unsatisfied with my visit. The staff is amazing. The food, however, is not. The fried chicken appetizer (shared plate) was great, but it seems that while the kitchen is trying to be different than others around, it is just too far out there without enough explanation for me. There was sausage or something like it in my duck side dish which was not listed in on the menu. I have diet restrictions being a Jew, so would like to know if an additional meat is going to be added. My partners oyster dish was mostly mushrooms, or at least he could not tell the difference between what was mushroom and what was oyster. This is not the presentation or quality of food I had been used to from the Dish. Pretty disappointing.

    We had a good time at this restaurant, the food was tasty and the service was friendly. However, we were very disappointed with the portion sizes, especially for the desserts and drinks. Our $15 piece of cake was so tiny that it looked like someone had already eaten most of it before bringing it to us. The cocktails were also expensive and served in small glasses. We expected more value for our money and left feeling unsatisfied.
