“BYOBRT”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2012 via mobile

Means buy your own booze right there. Seating is a bit funky but food is excellent. Make reservations in advance. And splurge on the wine, it's a deal.

“Perhaps the best food in Tucson”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2012

The Dish is tiny and nestled into the back of a wine store (The Rumrunner) but the food is really, really good. They seem to do an especially good job on fish dishes and the sides of polenta or potatoes are always a surprise combination of flavors and the vegetables are fresh and delicious. The service is impeccable, the waiter never hovers but always seems to know when to check on the table. The coffee and desserts are just he right end to a great meal.

“Small & Intimate”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2012

I have lived in Tucson for a long long time and had never eaten at The Dish. My boyfriend took me for my birthday and I was sad that I had missed out on such a gem for so many years. The restaurant is part of a wine store. Very small and intimate with amazing food.

“Seating can be tricky”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 January 2012

This small restaurant has good food and wine. But the seating is strange. If you are not lucky you may get seated at a table outside the tiny dining room and instead in the aisle of the wine shop associated with it. There are two table in the wine shop just outside the entry to the dining room. Not a fun spot.
