Personally I enjoyed the shakshuka but for $14-15, just one egg and tomato sauce were a bit lacking (especially compared to the shakshuka at Tatte). I did not get drinks, but friends complained that $5 was too much for a plain iced black coffee. The ambiance was wonderful though!

HUGE qualm: The server hands you a portable credit card machine right there at the table. You have to insert chip and give the tip right there as the server hangs out over your shoulder. I hate it. It's like I'm forced to give this excellent tip bc they are literally looking at you to see what you will tip. So I do tip in fact excellently so I don't look like a douchbag, even though the service is truly par to sub par. But again-- the kitchen is the saving grace. The food is so good, we keep going back. Win some, lose some. This review btw is coming from a person who was server/bartender for 2 decades of their life. I know what good service is.

I did read through some of the reviews and couldn’t disagree more with the comments about the wait staff. The staff were awesome, thoughtful and clearly work their tail off. These patrons live under a rock and don’t read the news is my assumption. Anyway! An absolute gem in Central and worth your time!

I’m not one to leave reviews, but the few times we did see wait staff they were quite rude and then tried quickly to make up for it to get a tip. Cocktails are interesting, not everyone’s cup of tea. Overall, I wouldn’t go back but it was alright.

Smallish dining area quieter nice atmosphere. Able to have normal conversation. Eclectic food and drink menu - Asian, Latin, Italian. Small plates but also larger main meal options. Good mixture. Service was somewhat slow but in some ways allowed us to take our time and have conversation. Only real complaint was it was my sons birthday and in the notes with reservation I asked for candle to be put on whatever dessert we ordered. No go. Overall recommended.

I'd recommend the chilaquiles, Korean fried rice, lamb burger, and brussel sprouts. Sip on the Spa Day, Rumspresso, or Peanut Old Fashioned. The servers are super kind and give great recommendations. You can tell it's a happy work environment.

Our server Cody was very friendly and helpful with recommendations upon our prompting. The appetizer and main course — Colombian bunuelos followed by a hearty serving of chilaquiles — were well prepared and packed with flavor. The one strike against The Dial (at least, in terms of the indoor experience) is the acoustics. Between the brick walls and concrete floor, the space was very noisy when even less than half-filled to capacity, and we had to ask each other to repeat ourselves a few times during our conversation because of it. If you're ok with that, then I warmly recommend you try The Dial out and enjoy some wonderful dishes.

They completely understaffed their restaurant so everything was slow.

I think a number of us were a little disappointed with the food (both the quality and portion size). Not bad, and the service was good but there are better places out there so I probably wouldn't go back.

Only bad point was that table was ready 20 mins late - but this was mainly due to a party before not leaving on time. Would go again.
