    I can't believe this place has been here for at least a year and we just now tried it out. I had only been there for happy hour once and enjoyed it and then finally made it back to try to the food. The cocktails with the infused spirits are great. You can be very creative and they have a great happy hour to explore. The food was excellent. Great mussels, delicious duck breast dish and a mac n cheese that you can enhance. We wrapped things up with a great lemon cake they had and it was really good. It's pretty sweet, so great to share, but really tasty. I look forward to returning and trying several other things on the menu. They are a "scratch kitchen" so they are really flexible in tailoring your dish if need be!

    This is close and in a convenient location. The inside of the restaurant is very trendy, comfortable and a nice size. The menu at lunch seems like there could be more choices. We had burgers and sandwiches. The service was tentative, and the food preparation seemed slow for what we ordered. We will try again.

    This is a great location and I had high hopes, but ...... the service was ridiculously slow, particularly considering that they weren't all that busy and there seemed to be plenty of servers. Friends who had been there the week before (Sunday after church) had the same experience and were comp'd a cocktail. We received no offer of a comp, just excuses (lame ones at that) as to why the food took so long to come out. I won't be going back unless I hear of better experiences. Explains why the places up the street were so busy. BTW - noise level was not "energetic" more like too loud (but then I'm an older lady!)

    Been to District many times & the food is consistently good/reasonably priced. (only a few great items though) The ambiance is good & the place has a definite cool vibe. The two things that have been an issue from DAY 1 are inconsistent service & very uncomfortable metal chairs. Our server this past weekend didn't know how to pronouce 1 of only 2 cabernets (Amigoni) on their small wine list & this is the 3rd time I've witnessed a different server struggle to open a bottle of wine! And the chairs. We were a party of 8 and my friend is a big guy (not fat, just big) and the 1st thing he said was "what's up w/these chairs!" You never want your 1st impression in a new restaurant to be "I'm not comfortable". Hopefully they will address this.

    A complete surprise and change from what we knew as Romanelli's! The change was welcome and very comfortable. We definitely will come back to sample more of the menu!

    We met some friends here and I thought it would be just like every other bar food place. I had their special which was wild samon on top of ravioli's. It was cooked perfect and lots of flavor in this dish. My friends had the Ruben which I don't even like but I had a bite and loved it. Another friend had the chicken lettuce wraps which I also tried and were spicy but also full of flavor. We will go back again doing

    This is my second time eating here (once for lunch), and both times I was pleased. The place itself has a "repurposed" hip feel to it. The food was really good (they do not skimp on their portions). The only issue that I had was with an appetizer we wanted to order. When asked to leave out the bacon (I know, shocking), the waitress stated that is was "premade"...which was a bit of a turn-off. We ordered the chicken wraps instead, and they were good and spicy!

    Just had lunch here, but it was excellent. Fun dining outside along the sidewalk. We had the gumbo, which was fantastic. Want to go back to try more things.

    We made a reservation for 13 on Saturday night. Our server was very attentive. Drinks took a while to make, but they were hand crafted, so we weren't bothered. One girl in our party didn't like the Trout, but was too timid to say anything. The owner came over to do a table check and someone else mentioned she didn't like her Trout. The owner was more than willing to get her a new dish in a timely manner. The way he approached and handled the situation was outstanding. Due to his actions we will all be back!

    This was our second visit. We sat at the bar the first time and had a drink and it was fine. So we stopped with a group of 8 on a Saturday at 9 pm, only one other table there and our service was the worst we have ever had.

    This was our second time at District and we were just as pleased as we were out first visit. The atmosphere is wonderful, casual, and fun. Their new Spring menu is refreshing, light, and everyone at our table said their meal was delicious. As always the drinks were amazing and the service was great!

    The District is great! We brought my parents and the kids there for dinner Saturday and there was something for everyone. They just updated the menu for Spring and added some nice touches to the menu. Loved the quinoa salad and the seafood sliders!

    Yep, the food is great. We had the gumbo, fried polenta, and we shared a salad. All of it was quite tasty - especially the gumbo. The service was so-so but I'll cut them some slack as the place was pretty packed. Unfortunately, we went there during some March Madness thing so it was extremely loud. We may return but it will probably be on a weeknight so that we can actually hear each other as we chat over our martinis.

    This was just the venue we were looking for … someplace new, with an interesting menu. I would imagine it would be crowded on the weekends, so the noise level would be more energetic. Food was delicious; service was great … what more can you ask for????

    Came here because it was empty when the place up the street had an hourlong wait. May never go back to the other place. Loved the ambience--reclaimed wood (from bowling alleys!) makes up the table, locally sourced food and liquor, lots of homemade infused liquors (which I didn't sample at 11 a.m. but will go back for), and an above-average brunch menu really impressed me. Great service, great vibe. The food was very good (simple frittatas very well prepared); will have to go back to try more.
