“GROSS!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2010

I made a reservation for two for Thanksgiving Day. They had my reservation wrong - they had it for four people instead of two. That was no big deal. We both ordered the same meal - turkey, garlic smashed potatoes and a coke. The coke was the only thing that tasted good.
It looked like one or two slices of turkey folder over so it looked like you got more than you actually did. The turkey gravy was disgusting - very watered down - the garlic smashed potatoes (their term not mine) was edible. We were in and out of the restaurant in 15 minutes - no exaggeration. My guest had one bite of the potatoes and couldn't finish it. The waitress asked if I wanted to take it home and I refused. There was no mention of taking it off the menu - we had to pay for it anyway. This place ruined Thanksgiving for me.

“We have been the The Dish many times...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2010

We have been the The Dish many times since it's opened and love the place. Ever visit is different bit great just the same.

It's a tapas style reastaraunt and that's not what everyone is prepared for. If you want to enjoy the time you spend with friends while enjoying a never ending flow of food and drink then this is the place for you. If you want a traditional sit down, eat and leave then this place probably isn't for you.

Brad, the managing partner, was the glue that held Billy's Tap Room together until 3 years ago when it changed hands and he's brought that same friendly, always glad to see you atmosphere to his new place.

Everyone needs to try The Dish at least once. I'm sure most will be back many times.

“More than just a meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2010

Great place for tapas! Excellent service, good selection. Don't rush through the meal - relax and enjoy. Expect to order ~3 items - we ordered one item at a time.

“Good food and inexpensive wine specials!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2010

My husband and I dined at The Dish twice when we were vacationing in Ormond Beach. We liked it so much that we decided to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary dinner here. The tapas dishes were wonderful and the wine specials (2 for 1) made both visits affordable. The wait staff is fantastic and the cooks in the kitchen are whipping out delicious food in mere minutes. We tried about 10 different tapas on our 2 visits and every single one was super! You have to try this place!!

“Just what Ormond Needed!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2010

Wow - we love this place! Whether my husband and I go alone or with a group of friends we love, love, love the Dish! They have a daily happy hour with 241 beer and wine until 6:30 daily, and another happy hour from 9-11 with 1/2 price drinks. The portions are small, and if it's just the two of us we can get one or two each and be full! It's so fun if we are with a group- we can order a number of dishes and share them. The food is delicious, and we've enjoyed trying all of the wonderful menu items!
