Here are some of my favorites over the years. I know there are a few I'm forgetting.
Dungeness crab cakes and alder plank salmon - Anthony's - Gig Harbor, WA
Roasted pepper salad - Fortuna's - Niagara Falls, NY
Cream of tomato soup and grilled swordfish stuffed with blue crab, topped with arugula and caviar - Los Caneros - San Antonio, TX
Osso Bucco - the restaurant in Philly where we had the offline with Paulo
Pan fried lake perch - Half Moon Bay - North Tonawanda, NY (a local bar)
BBQ beef ribs - Doug Nelson's - Beaumont, TX

-- One of the first times my parents took me out with them to a restaurant. It was an old-fashioned red sauce Italian place but I remember ordering pasta with a very strong sauce (either puttanesca or livornese) and it made me pay attention to what I put in my mouth.
-- Hen of the Woods mushrooms at Campagna (NYC)
-- a little restaurant in Rome that served spaghetti con vongole using the local clams (each about the size of nickel), which was a lot of work but a lot of flavor
-- kaiseki in two restaurants in Kyoto
-- roasted chestnuts in the streets of Milan
-- roast goose at Yung Kee (Hong Kong)
-- cullen skink at The Waverly (Kyle of Lochalsh, Scotland)
-- a Portuguese stew of pork and clams at F-Bar (Montreal)
Also, a lot of restaurant experiences that were memorable without a knockout dish.
