Usually the food at Dish is superb. This time, however, was a bit disappointing. My tempura shrimp were bland and could have used a dipping sauce of some sort; my Brussels sprouts, though, were excellent. My husband’s scallops were on the skimpy side. He did...More

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.

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....More
