“Friendly Atmosphere, good food, moderate+pricing, good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012

My wife and I went with 2 other couples (6 people total) at the recommendation of one of the other couples who had been there several times. We had made reservations for 5:15 PM but they were not busy (Christmas eve). We were told that the kitchen would close on this day at 6:00 PM therefore our slightly earlier than normal dinner time.

Seating was comfortable at a table for 6. Three of us sat on a booth style cushion seat and the other three on the other side of the table in chairs.

Restroom was clean.

Service was friendly and helpful. Note: Food is cooked to order and comes out when it is ready. Some people received food several minutes before the rest of the group.

You can order tapas sized dishes (read appetizer size) or regular size (only for some items). My wife and I ordered tapas size of Salmon Bites ($6.95) and chicken pot pie ($6.95) and dinner size Baby Back Ribs ($13.95). We ordered the ribs "naked" because we don't like sweet sauces. The ribs are marinated in sauce before cooking but "naked" in this case meant that they were not covered in sauce before being served. The ribs came with grilled vegetables and mashed new potatoes.

The salmon bites were tasty but swimming in oil. The chicken pot pie was very creamy and tasted good. The ribs were acceptable to good but I have had better. Portion size for ribs was OK. Tapas dishes were small but the total of what we ordered was right for the two of us.

One of our table mates ordered the Grilled Filet Mignon Salad ($10.50). It looked very good and he enjoyed it.

Everyone enjoyed their meal. We ordered at about 5:30 PM and everything was served just a few minutes before 6:00 PM. The waiter did come to the table at 6:00 to advise that the kitchen would be closing and this was "last call."

Normal hours are Monday-Thursday 11:30 AM to 9:00 PM
Friday and Saturday 11:30 AM to 10:00 PM
Sunday 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM

“"The Dish"...Ormond Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

This is our "go to" restaurant. The servings are tapas style, although full size entrees can be ordered. I like the ability to sample the different menu items. I like the escargot, oyster shooters,seared tuna and all the soups. The sliders are perfect for sharing and give you a beef fix without having to finish an oversized burger. The wine list is very good and very affordable. It is a nice place to enjoy a casual meal or to celebrate a special occasion. Brad Dish has done a great job with this place!

“Great place !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

While on vacation, not only did I try their Sunday brunch, but went back again for a lite Saturday evening dinner. The brunch was great with a wonderful variety of tasty food at a reasonable price. The lite dinner was just perfect. The French Onion soup is to die for topped off with the cutest little burger sliders. Excellent experience !

“Choose wisely”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

Awesome blue crab bisque!!! Other items were mediocre and a little overcooked. Small portions at reasonable prices but don't select too many, particuary if you order the bisque. It is a meal in itself.
