Great menu for groups. Lots of variations. Recommended!! Get the mango. Fantastic service.
Server did not effectively engage with conversation regarding my allergy.
Food was dried out and very disappointing/overpiced. Atmosphere and service on patio was very good.
It was great! We ate outside
Excellent food (chickpea salad was our favorite), excellent service and ambiance. Enjoyed dinner outdoors in a fun atmosphere, with a great playlist and diverse crowd. It was our first visit and we loved it. Will definitely return!
The service was bad. Even tho we got our food very quickly, the wine bottle arrived only at the end of the meal. I asked the waiter to turn off the AC cause it was dripping water on my face, I’ve been told that’s “normal”, okay. They also forgot to bring us the cake we asked for the birthday of our friend.
Not giving 1 star because the food was good and the wine was good as well.
We’ll be coming back here! Food was great, and interesting (inspired by the staff’s travel experiences). Drinks were the highlight for us, with the best being the peanut fat washed old fashion. Our server was knowledgeable, quick, and very excited to be a part of the team there. We’re excited to try out their rooftop bar too when it opens!
Outdoors in their courtyard was awesome!
I loved having a meal on your patio, although it could be more lovely with flowers! We’ve lived in the neighborhood for 40 years(!) and in the past have not eaten out much due to vegan/vegetarian/diabetes/cultural issues. It’s great to have a restaurant nearby that focuses on fresh food and the above issues, as well as being welcoming! Thank you😄
This is my second time dining at this restaurant. My first was in early June. In June I thought the menu was quite different and had much better choices which is why I came back. This time, I found the menu really challenging and bizarre. I had no idea what to order as the descriptions were a lot of things that I was not quite sure what they were or what they would taste like together with the other ingredients. In the end I chose an African spiced chicken dish that was really mediocre. In addition a couple of drinks we wanted we were told that they were out of stock. The whole experience was disappointing and I will probably not got back for the food. The atmosphere is nice and I would return for just drinks. That seems like more of their core business than the dining.
Delicious! Really enjoyed the music food and service
Drinks and food were amazing, staff was great!
Drinks were good but the food is incredibly expensive and overpriced
Great food! A fusion restaurant and every dish we chose was delicious!
Excellent meal at the Dial! We sat at the bar, which had plenty of space as most people preferred the beautiful outdoor patio. The bartender was amazing and gave great recommendations. Food totally delivered! Totally reasonably priced and delicious food and drinks!
We ordeedr several plates to sample and share. Each plate had its own outstanding presentation and flavors. The sizes were most generous. The staff was delightful. Bravo The Dial!
I had a yuzu slushee, it was pretty awesome and it's just another tangible reason why this place is much better than 7-11.
Food, drinks, and service were outstanding!! Definitely recommend and will be returning! ❤️
I can say that this will be our new favorite spot for girl's night out. The food is delicious and the staff is amazing!
A great place to meet up with friends for a drink and food. I would definitely come back to The Dial in the future! My friends and I came for brunch and sat on the lovely patio. I got the lamb burger and my friend got the house burger (it's like a homemade Big Mac - delicious!) and we loved our bloody marys. I also got a frozen mojito which was delicious and complimented my lamb burger beautifully. Our waitress was excellent. She was attentive without being overbearing, knowledgable, personable, and a delight.
Loved the feel of the space.
The menu is small but creative.
The drinks are AMAZING.
The noise level in the restaurant is almost unbearable. You can barely hear your server or the person you are with.
Everything was great
Food was subpar.
Whoever was the host/manager that evening has poor customer service skills. We were asked to move to another table but the approach was less to be desired.
The dish portions need to be addressed in terms of an accompanying vegetable or starch along with it.
Was here for brunch in the past and the food was great. Not too impressed with the dinner so far.
nice outdoor area, tasty drinks, fun and varied menu and all the food is good, attentive and kind staff
Great experience and service, amazing food and great music.
Great food and atmosphere at The Dial and outstanding bar staff!! Molly, Molly, and Cody are resplendent in their roles! 15 out of 10, this place is quickly becoming a go-to spot for me.
This new restaurant is a LOT of fun!! A lively atmosphere, *outstanding* service, good drink choices and eclectic food choices. We sat outside and enjoyed being in the open air; even though it was energetic, we could still talk without shouting.
The main reason this wasn't 5 stars all around was that it was a bit pricey for what we got, particularly the cocktails. We realize this is how many restaurants are making money these days but still.
Excellent cocktail selection, exquisite food, very nice spacious patio, excellent service.
Our server was so friendly, knew the menu well, asked if we had any food allergies to be aware of, and was super fun! The ambiance and food were a 10/10. We sat on the patio and the vibes were IMMACULATE. Will definitely be back!
Beautiful interior, unique menu, and amazing service. Caesar was our waiter and took good care of my friend and I. He made us feel like we were guest at his home. The food was delicious! The flavors were unique and balanced. Overall, I had an incredible time. I will be back.
Great atmosphere fun place to go
Overall the experience was good. Food was decent, service was quite good! Only real downside is it fills up fast and the noise levels build up fairly quickly. Inside looked more peaceful than the outside eating of you are comfortable with that.
Awesome outdoor patio. EXCEPTIONAL service for our group of 6. Nice cocktails. The food was a tad hit or miss, but it is difficult to do everything well with such an eclectic menu. Perhaps they should consider taking a slightly more focused approach? Either way, we had a five-star experience overall and will definitely be back, if only for drinks and apps.
Love the vibes, our servers are always so kind!
menu is limited and doesn't fit the season. Add a salad and I'll be back.
Made reservations for roof deck and was shown to back deck on first floor with no view.
Delivery of drinks from bar was quite slow. Back deck area is crowded with Tables and high fences around the deck prevent any type of view of surrounding area.
The Dial is a vibe -- great ambiance with some cool, eclectic decor. A bit loud, but was expected for a Friday night. Our server was incredibly attentive and made sure we had everything we could need, including offering drink recommendations when requested and making conversation about particular gluten-free dishes. We ordered an array of food, with my favorite being the garganelli dish. The sugar snap pea lemon fritters and flautas were also enjoyable. Definitely recommend for a different experience and a chance to taste some great food and drinks.
Good choice last minute...nice range of dishes and attentive service
The service was terrible. Our waitress only took our order and brought a first round of drinks. Someone else brought the food but neither of them asked if we were all set, liked the food, or wanted more to drink. I was there for brunch with my mom and we were both very disappointed. We got just the first round of drinks and food and when we were done, we waited about 30 minutes to even get our bill and that was because I had to get the waitresses’ attention.
