Creative Loafing's Jennifer Zyman reviews Dish Dive, awarding the tiny Kirkwood restaurant a "good" rating of two out of five stars. Zyman says the homey eatery is a solid fit for the neighborhood:
Recently, chefs David Sweeney and Shane Devereux took over Dish Dive's kitchen for a week while Carroll was on vacation. While both of those chefs are well established, Carroll says he'd like to see more chefs come in and cook so that his restaurant can be a launching pad for new talent. His open-door approach is a perfect fit with how he and Myers run their business. "It really is an extension of ourselves," Carroll says. "It's like our second home. We both love restaurants, we love what they can offer, but we spend so much time there we created this one really to have that homey feel." And it does. It's just what the neighborhood ordered: A casual spot with a plucky spirit that serves good food at a nice price. This is the house that Carroll and Myers have built and they want you to stop in some time for a plate of food.
