First time in Lynchburg and we were not interested in big meal. Dish provides nice selection on smaller plates. We had 2 each. All were tasty and well presented. Particularly likes Salmon rolls (lox) with cheese and apple.

A group headed to Nashville to record a couple of songs were at the Dish the night we were there and it was such a treat to hear them play and sing. It was only three people in the group so it was perfect for the small restaurant without being overbearing with the sound system. The food was freshly prepared... More

Surprising quirky little restaurant in downtown Lynchburg. Has been a staple on mainstreet for years and always great food. Unique locally sourced small plates for sharing we always enjoy a great meal at Dish.

We have been to Dish 3 times in the past and all 3 times were excellent. This time, not so much. There were 3 people in our party. Service was incredibly slow, even though our reservations were on the early side and we were the only diners when we arrived. After ordering, it took the waiter a good 15 minutes... More

Overpriced, badly conceived, but great presentation. We waited 45 minutes from arriving just to get bread. Too many items included fish AND beef or pork. Hubby is allergic to fish, I'm allergic to beef and pork - so there was very little to choose from. Chorizo tamale lacked . . . chorizo. Hubby said there was a hint in there,... More

Dish specializes in "small plates," which are great for sharing and tasting. But they also have a couple of large plates every day. The food is beautifully presented and service is excellent. It is a small, cozy restaurant and it is our absolute FAVORITE restaurant in the Lynchburg area. We HIGHLY recommend it. I come from a little north of... More

This was recommended by a couple who loves the place--and with good reason. The food was delicious-beginning with the homemade bread and arugula pesto and ending with the Nutella Chess for dessert. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable! My husband and I had a fantastic evening here. The cheese course was INCREDIBLE!!!

Dish has delicious food, a nice atmosphere, and unfortunately uncomfortable seating. My wife and I have been there a number of times and the food has always been very good. They have a large selection of small plates selections with regularly-rotating small-plate specials as well as entrees for those who just want to eat one, big meal. If I had... More
