At the Daily Dish, the focus is on comfort food that is seasonally inspired, sustainable and locally sourced. We believe that the Farm to Fork experience benefits everyone from small farmers to our diners. We visit local produce markets to purchase seasonal, fresh produce. Our pita, focaccia & pizza dough are made daily. Our salmon & chicken are organic. We use fresh, pasture fed beef. We make our mozzarella, pickles, sauces, dressings & vinaigrettes in house from scratch. The cocktail bar has local tap beer, fun cocktails and a varied wine list. We follow these principles to cater your special event.

This was a friend get together and we all ordered different items on the menu from vegan to meat. Everyone enjoyed their meal. The server was very attentive. Noise level for the hard of hearing is very loud. I like the menu at this restaurant and I plan to come back.

Decided to try someplace new. Good food, good service, but smaller and more cramped than expected. Bathrooms, as a male standing at a urinal and my feet slide while trying to take a leak, it’s too greasy. This just means the floor cleaning techniques suck. Probably won’t be going back.

The Daily Dish never disappoints! Fabulous food! I had the lobster ravioli with pea pods. The dish was perfectly prepared. I usually get the salmon which is always fresh.

I read several reviews of how food the was. However, each of us in my party were underwhelmed with the Eggs Benedict and chicken and waffles that we ordered. I probably wouldn't return. But the environment itself was nice and we had a nice table facing outside. I don't want to deter anyone from going to try it out. Maybe there are other menu items that are better.

I'm glad I finally tried The Daily Dish. Had a lovely Sunday brunch there yesterday with an old friend. Sat outside and enjoyed the lovely weather, very good food and service and local families out for the morning.

I will definitely be going back.

We were seated quickly. Three of us got the Fritatta, it was terribly over cooked , almost burnt. Coffee delicious and were given refills. Waiter seemed distracted and we had to ask repeatedly for basic things like butter and jam for toast. Very nice brunch menu. We were there on Sunday and it was quite busy. I will go again.

My two friends and I had a lovely Mother's Day brunch at The Daily Dish. Jeremy, our waiter, was on top of everything. Each of our meals were delicious. We did not have any alcohol. But I did love their soy Latte. And they had freshly made blueberry scones that were melt-in-your-mouth good. I had the lox and bagel, my friends had the Two Eggs any style with a fresh greens salad and the vegetable frittata. Everyone left quite satisfied and looking forward to coming again next week!

Service was very slow. It took a very long time to get our burgers and our dessert.

The dessert came with the wrong ice cream on it. We order it because the menu listed we could get it with black raspberry ice cream. It came with chocolate ice cream. When we told our waiter he told us there were black raspberries in the chocolate. There was not. When we asked him to change the ice cream to the black raspberry he told us they didn’t have any. Why didn’t he say so in the first place, come and tell us, then ask what other flavor we would like.

Food is good but the service was so slow and lackadaisical we won’t hurry to go back.

Thus was our second time there and the service was very slow during our first visit as well.

Food delicious !!!! Wish the short rib eggs Benedict would be in the menu again ... that was so good ... but this time I had the short rib hash which was good ! Service this time was really good....pleasant and knowledgeable ! Tight seating quarters ..and it can be hard to hear sometimes but the food is sooo good ! Get there early ... at 12.30 they had served the last of a couple specials for brunch that day!

Pleased to have made the Dish part of our 13th wedding anniversary celebration! Great staff, great food, relaxed outdoor patio. Oh, and the cocktails are awesome! And the house wines are delicious. We love this place, and try to make it over here at least once every couple of months.

Our dinner on a Saturday night with friends was, for the first time at the Daily Dish, a mixed bag. We were probably the last reservation at 8:15 but our waiter, who was new to us, acted as though it was midnight and he had to get home. He brought our entrees while we hadn't yet finished appetizers and was intrusive through the meal.
Apart from that annoyance, the food was delicious and imaginative.

Our waiter, an "old hand" at Daily Dish, did a marvelous job of handling our multi-generational table. I think the problem was insufficient kitchen help, especially in delivering a brownie sundae as dessert that our waiter delivered swiftly but had been delayed by the kitchen.
