For our DineWise Reviews, we have privately purchased their prepared meals from their website, just like you would do as a consumer. We also take all of own pictures, so please keep in mind that we are not professional photographers. We want to show you what the meal will look like when you plate it at home.
DineWise meals are well above average in food quality, portion size, and ease of reheating, but so is their price.
A nice over-sized grilled chicken breast with a very flavorful Marsala sauce. A few more mushrooms would have been the beans, but they were real and not canned. Served with Rice and Broccoli.
Lots to love here. The Spinach filling is devine, the Cheddar Mashed Potatoes are creamy and delicious, and the Asparagus Tips are flavorful. A great meal that might be perfect with a sauce or gravy.
The Lamb Shank has more of a gamey flavor than the Rack of Lamb, but lamb and sous-vide cooking seem to go hand-in-hand. It's a huge portion with a gravy that almost worth the price of the meal by itself.
Best Stuffed Pepper in the meal delivery business, by far. Once we had this one, nothing else seemed to come close. Huge portion size, and the rice is as plentyful as delicious.
Beef Sirloin Morel
A very close second to Healthy Chef Creations Filet Mignon. Can also be reheated to a medium pink center. Great sides too, and a very generous portion size. We were shocked by the quality of this meal.
Techniqually this is a Cottage Pie (made with Beef instead of Lamb) but it is still tops for the industry. The creamed onions might be the single best side on any prepared meal menu. Ecommically priced too.
Shrimp Stir Fry
This is a nice little trayed meal you will often see on sale. The portion size is on the smaller side, but it would make an excellent power lunch. The vegetables are crisp and the rice reheats well.
Almond Crusted Flounder
What a treat to have a real piece of flounder with a crispy crust. This meal comes out better in the oven than the microwave, but the delicious flavor of fresh flounder is undeniable.
We enjoyed this big and meaty chicken parmesan with crispy breading and just enough sauce. The side rice pilaf reheated perfectly without being sticky or over-cooked. Four yums up!
5 Stars for using just the tenderloin, which is like the filet mignon of pork. It reheated tender and moist. The portion size is good too. It doesn't come with a sauce, but it doesn't need one.
Stuffed Pork Chop
Another very good pork meal from DineWise. The stuffing in the pork chop is great, and as you can in the picture, it is perfectly seasoned. It reheats well, and it's served on the bone. Sides are great too.
DineWise may have the largest a la carte breakfast delivery menu with anywhere from five to ten selections. They can be often found on sale for as much as 40% off. This one may be the best on the menu.

Overall, it is hard to say that we have ever had anything that was bad. Shipping is always on time, and the product always frozen. The individual packaging can come in the form of microwave trays or sealed bags. The website doesn't indicate which comes in which manner, but we didn't find it to be an issue.
Most people buy prepared meals for their own use, but a growing number of people buy meals and meal plans as gifts, or to send to older family members who may be under their care.
