I ate here with my wife for lunch and a dinner both meals were really good. The staff was also excellent and warm. They really make you feel special here. A few highlights for me, meatloaf club they serve at lunch is excellent. Filet mignon also very good here. They have fresh made potato chips with a cheese sauce that... More

Overpriced and very small portions. Waiter great though and S'mors dessert wonderful. $34.00 for four scallops over some mushy stuff that tasted funny. Nothing at all came with it. We asked for bread or rolls. Got heat and bake rolls like you buy in grocery store. Had to buy the good bread. With all the restaurants to choose from I... More

Recently on a Sunday afternoon I had some time to kill so I stopped at Dish for lunch and a drink. The reason I only give this an average rating is the menu on a Saturday afternoon is very limited and there were no drink specials. I did order Fish and Chips which were very good, so the food is...

Great steaks and seafood in a quiet dining room. Excellent wait staff. There were three of us having salmon and steak and all came away highly satisfied.

We were pleased that our pre-theatre dinner came with 20% discount. We both ordered the excellent lamb shank which featured Indian spices and wilted greens. Instead of the Nan we asked for rice to mix with the rich sauce.

Dish is a perfect lunch destination for a team event - the appetizers are quite unique and there is at least one perfect entree to serve any palette. There is a decent variety of Indian dishes specifically for a vegetarian. If you are a fan of salmon, please try a well done Atlantic salmon. The ambiance is perfect, the service... More

We dined here as 3 couples for brunch (actually a party of 7). The menu looked delicious. The ambiance was very nice and contemporary. The food was average, prices just above average, and the service was pretty terrible. We ordered egg dishes and french toast. Most of the egg dishes were served, first 3, then another 2. The french toast... More

My friends and I almost always go to Dish before Hartford Stage performances. There's something on the menu for everyone, full meals, plus great small plates and salads. Do not miss the Dish bread full of cheese and goodies. I'm there at least one a month. Delicious food. One third is the lively bar area, and the other 2/3 is... More

A friend of mine and I just had the boozey brunch here on Sunday! The boozey brunch was offered for $30 and included 2 drinks and 1 entree. The drinks alone were 9$ a piece so we saved on the combo price! I had the crepe like pancake! So delicious! My friend has the lump crab Benedict and loved her... More

Dish is a wonderful place for casual dining both at the bar and in the dining room. Lunch is especially good with specials every day and warm friendly service. Dinner is the same and Happy hour is available after work with discounted appetizers and drinks. Don't miss it!!!
