Gorgeous food, lovely surroundings, fabulous staff and the menu is a little bit different without being pretentious, what more could you want. Lunch menu is excellent value for money.

The atmosphere in the restaurant was very strange. We wanted to leave as soon as we sat down. Very loud 50s music was blaring out of the speakers, and only about 2 other people were in the dining area. There was a huge empty space, but I was sat almost underneath the piano. The food was very slow to arrive. The menu was also disappointing. I ate there once before, and although I hated the feel of the place the first time, the food was sufficiently good enough for me to try again. Now it is just expensive pub food. We stayed for a starter and then left. The restaurant needs a series make over to make it more cosy and comfortable to be in. They are obviously struggling, so they need to take my advice!

Overall a nice restaurant experience had by the whole party. The food was great; well presented and lovely flavours. The staff offered excellent service, very welcoming and attentive. Would definitely recommend to others and return to the restaurant at a later date.

So it would seem that whilst the venue is the same as that I've been to a number of times before, everything else is not. Last night I turned up to an empty restaurant, literally empty. Then I was presented with a menu that appeared very much like a pub lunch menu with Chicken Kiev's and pies. To say I was a little disappointed is an understatement, I was looking forward to things like the Hangar Steak and Pork 3 Ways. To find Kiev's on the menu was perplexing. After raising this with the lovely staff, it transpires the the chef had left and the place had new management. A massive shame.

Set menu really fantastic value. Did take two hours to order , eat and pay. Due to a really large party of people in (18) So be wary that of that if going to the theatre like us. Glad we booked for 5pm

Friendly service but it couldn't atone for overpriced food that took over 40 minutes to arrive. Given that we formed half of the 4 customers in the restaurant in the entire time we were there, we were pretty underwhelmed, especially when what arrived looked pre-prepared and was served with a limp salad that looked a day over its best. No wonder it was deserted. A real shame.

The food was of a good standard - however one dish was not available on the menu. For a Sat evening the restaurant was very quite, so little atmosphere. The poor element was the service - it was very slow.

We arrived for 19:30 reseevation, the restaurant was empty. We ended up sitting in the bar area, although there was no atmosphere. We were the only ones eating and there were about 4 other people. We ordered our starters,of which mine was inedible. It was so salty you couldn't taste anything else. We mentioned this to the waiter and his response was 'i will let the chef know', we never got a reply from this. Our mains came, we ordered burgers, which were also awful! They were so dry and highly seasoned it was also inedible. Again we mentioned this to the waiter and his response was 'i will let the chef know '. By this point we just wanted to leave! We will not be returning to the dish again and I recommend you spend your money elsewhere. Ikniw understand why we were the only ones eating.

Varied menu, beautifully presented, good service. Didn't have one of the wines we ordered, but offered reasonable alternative. Would like to try it on a jazz night.

Really nice place and atmosphere. The food was great. The only thing that let them down was that the Service was a little slow. Otherwise great place to go and prices are reasonable.

Very good setting and quality food. Wouldn't believe you were in the heart of Leeds and a great meeting point to start a good weekend out.

Excellent food and service. The rhubarb dessert was the pinacle of the meal.

Menu had changed a lot since we last went to Dish, it was not as good as it used to be. Service was good but menu limited and some of the food served was cold

Sat in the middle of a private party, felt very uncomfortable, we didn't even eat. The Menu had changed and not what I was expecting.
