The Dish is one of my favorite places in Florence. The menu has different items than you'll find anywhere else in the Shoals area: Shrimp salad, Pimiento Cheese Burger, Beef Tenderloin Hoagie, Spinach salad with grilled chicken- it's all so good. The setting is so nice with murals on the wall, and service is excellent. You must have a cupcake... More

We were passing through Florence about lunch time and as always I go to Trip Advisor for help finding a place. Florence is such a great college town with lots of shops and restaurants/cafes. Anyway, we decided, based on reviews, to try Dish Gourmet. Oh boy was it ever good! My hubby had the beef tenderloin sandwich with carmelized onions... More

The food is TOP NOTCH, worthy of a Food Network star chef. Yes, high priced, but worth every penny. Excellent wine, great service, great jazz on the weekend. The decor is AWFUL. The painting on the wall is nice, very Tuscan-y, but that's the only good thing about the decor. A designer needs to be consulted so the bargain basement... More

I wasn't expecting the opportunity to eat biscuits and cupcakes. I've been on a restricted diet for some time. For some us the gluten issue is very real. So when I went to this party I was expecting to avoid all the normal things one sees at a buffet. To my surprise they had catered the affair gluten free. Yeah,... More

Loved the food. It had a refinement one wouldn't expect in small town Alabama. The atmosphere was creative and quaint. The service was friendly and prompt. Would definitely eat here again.

When eating in downtown Florence and want a light cool lunch, this is our favorite place to go. Good, fresh food, with daily specials.

My wife and I were recently in NE Alabama. Dish Gourmet came highly recommended so we were excited to eat there. The restaurant has a nice busy feel. Clearly a place to meet and greet in Florence. My wife's shrimp salad plate was delicious; my pimento cheeseburger was not. Both the bun and burger were burnt, and the burger was... More

Met a good friend for lunch! We had tea and began our visit. We eventually ordered. Staff was very patient. They had some great specials, tomato and spinach quiche and watermelon gazpacho. But we went with a beef tenderloin sandwich with pasta salad. Sandwich was great, tender and yummy! Pasta salad was great too!

Thank Lelia W
