I held my wife's 50th birthday party at the Dime. We could not have had a better experience. All 10 couples who attended agree the food, drinks and service were perfect. Sarah, the event manager hosted our party and everything done exceeded our expectations

This place has great potential, but beware of event nights. Although they have a special event menu, they were severely understaffed and everything from our drinks, our food, the pace of food delivery and just about everything else was affected. To begin, we love calamari and the pricy pretzel coated option sounded amazing but quickly turned into a fun family game called, "find the calamari. Go ahead, you try in the picture attached. There were three coated and fried lemon slices, tons of onions and we think carrots or sweet potato strips. We counted about seven actual pieces of calamari. Then, the drinks, also a 14 dollar offering, each. We know and love bourbon and these were clearly made with rye and tasted like the dishwater. Then, they put the largest block of ice in the glass which leaves no room for the actual liquid. We ordered very simple dishes, wedges, two appetizers and two kids meals, a grilled cheese and pasta, yet, it took over an hour to get everything.
Just a thought, put service and staffing before the attempt at a Chic big city menu.

We want to the Dime to celebrate our anniversary. The atmosphere is nice and the service was okay. Our dinner was average but we expected more for the price. My husband had the salmon and said it was good. I had the strip steak. It was also good but, neither entree wowed us or encouraged us to spend the money again to return.

I truly enjoyed every aspect of the DIME!! The decor was awesome with fabulous food and a great small band that sang all kinds of genres. The DIME filled all 5 senses with such wonderful pleasure I didn't want to leave. But it did make me want to go back...which I will.

The plate prep is great here, however, the food was not good. We had the filet and braised short ribs with salad and veggie plate appetizers. The Ceasar salad was weird with orange tomatoes and tiny rock hard croutons but ok. Half the veggie platter came out cooked and half was browned but refrigerator cold on the inside...not good. The filet came out 2 temps under done and was tough and tasteless, we sent it back. The braised short ribs had what was supposed to be boujanaise sauce but wasn't. With a shaker of salt they were just ok. The homemade bread was the best thing on the table. The staff was friendly but non existent in an empty restaurant on a Saturday night.
