“Our waiter was not so curtous had no sense of humor but a nice guy. He over charged us by 18$ only because he ran the ticket up wrong. This is not a bad thing I just think he did not have the proper training on ringing up the food but the manager who is a super nice guy fixed our ticket for us. My wife and I will always go to famous Dave’s cause you can’t beat the food. It is right on point no matter what city it’s in.”

Villa Amore 5353 N 27th St, Lincoln Italian • $$
5353 N 27th St, Lincoln

“Finally a real authentic Italian restaurant in Lincoln Nebraska thanks to their wonderful chef, Tony from New Jersey! I hadn't been here in a while unfortunately because I would love to eat here every night so I decided to book a table on Valentine's Day and of course everything was delicious as usual however on holidays they have special menus like most places do, so no pizza which is what I wanted as a appetizer and there were two menus to choose from which is great however I wanted the calamari appetizer but I didn't want the whole package on that menu and with technology these days the waitress said that it's all preprogrammed in the system and they couldn't just pick that appetizer from that menu to go with the other a la carte menu. So this suggestion is to management, please ensure that the servers have an extra a la carte button that they can pick so that the customer can get what they wanted especially since it was on the menu. Otherwise this place is fantastic!”

DISH Restaurant 1100 E O St, Lincoln American • $$$
1100 E O St, Lincoln

“We have been to DISH 3 times in the last 12 months. Twice for their Sunday brunch, once for a special occasion dinner. The food has mostly been excellent, with the carnitas breakfast burrito option being truly spectacular.Unfortunately, service has continued to be incredibly frustrating. Our dinner, a tasting menu, had multiple courses rushed at the same time, including our drinks. In multiple stages, we received multiple drinks in advance of its paired course. For brunch, we have never had a problem with the timing of the food. Instead, we have waited long periods for things like water or the opportunity to pay the bill. It certainly isn't horrible, but it has been continuously below average.Vegetarian options: Several vegetarian dishes, but not as many as other places might have. However, the vegetarian options continue to be impressive in taste.”
