Another great meal in our 'hood.This place never disappoints whether we bring picky out of town family, hang out with friends or just am enjoy an impromptu date night. Fresh flavored, fun cocktails and a wine list full of interesting choices, even by the glass. Can't go wrong here.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent as alwaysDistrict Kitchen is lively, fresh and always something new. The ingredients are the best they can find and the chef is inventive and fun.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food, but too loudWe were meeting up with out of town family, but we never got to talk because we had to shout even to the person next to us. Though the food was excellent, I'd probably pass next time because it was just too hard to be social with more than one person. I guess restaurants with only hard surfaces: concrete, brick, and no carpet or tablecloths are the thing now because it makes the place feel bustling, but it is pretty annoying after 10 minutes5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful ExperienceI made a dinner reservation for a group of 4 for on Monday. We met at the bar first and recommend the Old Fashioned for all the bourbon drinkers out there. The special that evening was a roasted duck breast which was exceptionally tender and delicious. Our server was knowledgeable of the menu and was attentive without being obtrusive. This was my second visit to District Kitchen and there will definitely be a third.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMFoodies FindDistrict Kitchen provides a wonderful set of food and drink options. All items ordered were wonderful and unique. Cheese and pickled veggie selections were impressive. Wine choices were good by the glass or bottle.
Parking can be challenging - but if you live in DC this does not need to be stated.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMDK is part of the farm-to-tableDK is part of the farm-to-table movement (like Founding Farmers) but doesn't take itself too seriously about it. They have well-crafted cocktails and decent wine by the glass. The menu changes constantly with fresh and innovative dishes. The restaurant is extremely loud, so don't plan a romantic date here. The service is attentive and well-informed.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMLove the fresh and organicLove the fresh and organic ingredients. Real American preparations. Good food you can feel good about. Toad in a hole - wonderful appetizer. Roast chicken, which can be boring was anything but, it was moist and very flavorful. Service - hmm, waitress was working hard but perhaps they need more wait staff. Service was a bit slow and inattentive.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWhile I use Open Table a greatWhile I use Open Table a great deal, I rarely write a review. This is an exception because this restaurant really deserves kudos. It is located on a block usually associated with tourist restaurants. But this should become a local staple and is worth jockying for a parking space, which isn't easy. The artisan cheeses were wonderful. I had two small dishes -- the lamb and veal meatballs and the wild boar sausage -- both mouthwatering. My wife had a tasty and moist halibut. We practically licked the plates. I also greatly appreciate the fact that they could have squeezed in a few more tables, but instead have left enough room that one can have a private conversation. And, finally, the service was very attentive and professional. Bravo.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThe menu is unique and fresh-The menu is unique and fresh- it is nice to find variation in the menu throughout the year. We loved the wine list and the cocktails. The atmosphere is relaxed and beautiful-- the outdoor patio is wonderful in the spring. The GM/owner is great, he is very engaged in all aspects of the restaurant. Excellent service and quality of food. Definitely worth a visit if you haven't been!3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was terrific. ServiceFood was terrific. Service was attentive, knowledgeable and personable. We had small plates and salads only. Spinach with figs and al almonds was amazing as was shirred egg on mushroom and potato hash.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner was great. Every dishDinner was great. Every dish we got was really exceptional. I'd especially recommend the scallops, the squid ink pasta, and the risotto. The menu had a great selection, and the sizeable small plates section allowed our group to try a number of the items on the menu. I will definitely be back!3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMReally nice after work spotBooked dinner for an informal business meeting. Guest was held up so we sat at the bar for happy hour and then just stayed for an assortment of wonderful little plates. Everyone was friendly and helpful. The food was not your typical bar fare, and the wine selections were very good. The tab ended a little high, but that's what happens when you start at the bar and all those little treat options get more and more appealing.3/7/2013 12:00:00 AMUnique cocktails & outstanding menuAbsolutely fabulous menu -- and the dishes served tasted as good than they sounded. Lots of options (small plates and full-size entrees) - the day's special Tomato Curry Soup was amazing, and even loved by those at our table who don't like tomato soup! Our table tried every one of their specialty cocktails, and each one was spectacular! Doesn't hurt any to be only steps away from the Woodley Park Metro station - we will be back soon!2/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
