Dallas >DISH Restaurant & Lounge
Just ate here for the first time last
week with my dad. Our reservation was for 7 on a Wednesday night; the restaurant was not too crowded, but seemed to be picking up by the time we left. Our waiter was also in charge of the wine list and was extremely knowledgeable about all of his wines. We have been in the wine business for years, so we can tell when someone is faking their knowledge. You could tell that our waiter was very passionate about purchasing and knowing about his wines. He suggested a fabulous Pinot Noir which we enjoyed (Sette Ponti Carognolo-try it!). I ordered their pecan crusted trout and little gems lettuce salad; both were fresh and prepared with perfection. We split their jalapeno mac n cheese, which had just the perfect amount of spice for the cheesiness and crispiness of the dish. We tried the nutella chocolate bar for dessert. Not only did it come out in a beautiful presentation, the dessert (which came with a scoop of vanilla ice cream), it was delicious; not too sweet and synthetic tasting. All of their desserts are made in house which guarantees the freshest and creamiest tastes you can imagine. Our waiter was very attentive and we also met Bruce, the manager that night. Everyone there was incredibly friendly and patient. They recommend the prix fixe menu, but we did not choose it this time since we had our eye on other choices.
I loved the trendy ambiance and atmosphere. Their bar is pretty too look at as well; I would definitely go there for happy hour with friends or dinner again.
DISH is bets served warm & with a smile! AND IT WAS!!!.

Mind-bogglingly horrible experience. We were seated on the patio because there was a private party in the restaurant. We were given a choice of the patio or bar and chose the bar - even though it was HOT outside. We were told there were fans and we should be fine. NOT! There also was apparently something dead somewhere close by as I have never seen so many flies - outside of a garbage dump. I couldn't even eat my food and the waitress said "yes, we've gotten that complaint all evening". The manager couldn't be bothered and it was as if we were asking for for the moon to be seated at the bar afterall. I ordered the salmon salad but who knows what it tasted like with all the flies that were hovering. Are they kidding me?
poor service at Dish.
I made a reservation for 20 people for my birthday and put down a $200 deposit. It was confirmed and the assistant manager was aware that it was for my birthday party. I was running 10 minutes late and before I arrived the assistant manager asked one of my friends to call me and make sure I was coming. They said they could not hold the tables longer than 15 minutes even though the restaurant was almost empty and I had put down money to reserve. Furthermore, my reservation was booked as 7-9, so it should not have been a problem. When I arrived, I was told that they could not serve my birthday cake and acted inconvenienced by being asked to put it in the refrigerator. I did not expect them to serve it, only provide plates and dishes. They finally agreed to put the cake in the refrigerator, but when the cake was served it had obviously not been refrigerated. Also, when my party was seated, they tried to cram everyone into one table to take up less space even though people were still arriving.
After being seated the service was okay and the food was great. However, one of my friends ordered the filet and it was cooked wrong twice. She eventually sent it back and decided not to eat at all. I definitely will not be making any reservations here in the future.
Amazing Patio!!!!. Not only is the food great, but the patio (which is climate controlled for those chilly evenings) allows dogs! They have super cute decor making the patio feel like one of those outdoor living spaces in Pottery Barn, but with chic flair and a much more eclectic crowd. My pup drank water from the pink and blue doggy water dishes while I sipped on a Mimos-Ah. We were both feeling completely fabulous and chic. The food is executed with fine precision and the staff is knowledgeable yet friendly. Overall, this is my new go to spot for dining, drinks, and downtime.
Ultra Cool. A group of 6 made Dish our dining spot last night. Very cool decor (for whatever it's worth), nice host at the front door. Our waiter was as dry as they come (though attractive). A friend of mine asked if he could smile and he forced a smile for a second. I ordered the Flat Iron steak medium rare and got a very well done piece of meat, a small piece with a stainless steel cup of french fries. Other's in my group fared much better, at tender and juicy Rosemary Chicken, great burger, very good Sea Scollops, thick and flavorful pork chop. The baby iceberg lettuce salad I got was excellent, sure wish my Flat Iron steak wasn't creamated and dry as a bone.
Fun hip, colorful spot in admist of a recession. At a time when many restaurants are closing or downscaling, Dish is a bright spot that is fun and pure escapism. Good service and a lively crowd. Had great fun and will return. And oh, the patio was fun, even on a cold night.
Great environment. Easy to get to, friendly staff, beautiful space. great food.
Great Atmosphere! Super Cool Patio!!!. Went to Dish last night for dinner with a couple of my girlfriends - I was really surprised that this place was on Cedar Springs! The decor is amazing - chandeliers my favorite! This is a really a great place if you are looking for something fun and new! After dinner we stayed awhile and enjoyed sitting at the bar. I will definetly be back - and oh yeah, the food is good too!!! Great menu - lots to choose from!!!
Open Table review with 5 stars!.
Overall Rating (Very Good)
"Very modern setting that looks nice. To the food, the ribs and scallops were amazing. Nice portions, prepared well, delivered on time, what else can I say. My wife's soup was a pepper and corn chowder that was also very good.
