“Great for Breakfast but Dinner is inconsistent!”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

I love the look of DISH - Americana with an elegant rounded space, lots of booths with great windows and a toaster on the table for breakfast breads. Breakfast is the reason to eat here. All my past meals have been ample and good! So i was quite disappointed with the dinner I had a few days ago... The Butter-Braised Organic Chicken Breast with Wild Mushroom-Leek Hash
described as "served over wild mushrooms" $15.95, was dry and tasted like it'd been defrosted - with two-tiny "wild" mushrooms- if you are mentioning "wild" mushrooms twice then have wild mushrooms not the typical boring cultivated mushroom- this was a huge disappointment. The fish special of the day was also nothing special and similarly priced. However, the Diced Green apple, Candied Walnuts & Crumbly Blue Cheese salad was fresh and delicious and the baked seasonal pie was also light and tasty! Go for those!

“Best Breakfast in LA”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

they weren't kidding and my lunch experience was even better. Good, fresh, and healthy food with many different choices on the menu. The spacious, bright and clean restaurant made my meal even more enjoyable and the staff is so friendly and attentive. I'm going back to try their dinners.

“Comfort food, comfort atmosphere.”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

DISH gives you a great variety of hearty comfort food, as well as lighter fare, at reasonable prices in a homey atmosphere. Service can be slow at times, but is always cheerful. We've had breakfasts, lunches and dinners there, and it's always good.

“Go on a Tuesday night.”
Reviewed September 14, 2012 via mobile

The fried chicken dinner only shows up once a week and it is worth it. The desserts are also quite good, but change daily. The local dinner rolls are lovely as well. The place is well worth your time if you're going to be in the area, though it is a little pricey.
