Dinner and a movie

Decided to try this restaurant since we were downtown at a movie. I ordered the beef tips with the sauce were very tasty although the broccoli wasn't warm and the mashed sweet potatoes were just so so, they lacked in flavor. My daughter ordered the shrimp and scallops. I had a bite of her... read more

The Dish is located in the center of such venues as the Lied Center, the Haymarket and Lincoln's theater district. Food is good. Ideal for a meal before or dessert after an event.

We have never had a "bad" meal here. Everything I have had has been delicious. And the staff are always accomodating and courteous. One of the better restaurants in Lincoln.

The decor is welcoming, service is good. Wine list is limited. Food was just ok. In fact I sent my steak back and got something else. They did this happily, which I really appreciated. I did hear afterwards that they are known for great seafood which we did not order (being we were in the absolute middle of the US)... More

Had a very pleasant meal at Dish with family while visiting UNL. Our server was efficient, knowledgable and friendly. The appetizer and entrees were well prepared and presented with fresh ingredients. The plates were put together with an interesting and pleasing combination of favors. Pricing of food and beverages was of very good value. I will not hesitate returning to... More

It's honestly been too long since we were here for my review, but, I saw that it's ranked top 2 in Lincoln and I just don't think that's accurate with all the other great options downtown. It was fine, but, not worthy of that ranking. Very limited menu and our food was nothing exceptional. I remember having the guspacho soup.... More

My husband and I were in Lincoln for the Nebraska-Minnesota game (Go Gophers!!!) in late November. After chowing down on Runzas at Memorial Stadium and Lee's Chicken, we decided it was time for some finer dining. Our friends, one of whom is a Lincoln native, took us to Dish in downtown Lincoln. We live in Marin County, CA -- between... More

Local food, local owner who really cares. A bistro sort of menu with very eclectic items that were delish! Try the scallop brochette. Had the grilled shrimp and blue cheese salad and it was awesome as were the bacon wrapped dates with jalapenos. This place rocks and love the fact that the owner is back cooking!
