A lot has changed at Dine since the last time we were there. Certain “classic” dishes, like the mushroom risotto, are still on the menu. But a new executive chef is at the helm, and the food is not the same. Neither is the service. Is Dine still worth a visit?

The meatloaf is a house specialty, but it's not as tasty as we hoped it would be.
