District American Kitchen and Wine Bar Ratings and Reviews
The food was great. I enjoyed everything. However, our service was pretty crappy. We felt completely invisible. Ran out of water and other drinks with no one coming back. They were aware we had somewhere to be but it was like they went in one ear and out the other.
Wait staff was friendly but not very knowledgable about the details of the menu, nor were the prepared to accommodate special dietary needs. Dishes on the specials meal menu were good and a solid value. The patio was lovely; the inside space was overly air conditioned.
The staff was VERY nice. Too much time to get our initial beverages. I think our server was over worked by larger party she had to serve as well. Bread was simple rolls but the butter was great. Food was good. We had a chair and booth combo. I'm 6'3" and sat in the chair and felt low to the table.
This us our go-to restaurant prior to taking in a performance at symphony hall. There's always plenty of early seating and the menu never disappoints. This latest visit included the bacon wrapped, stuffed dates as the appetizer which were uniquely delicious. My wife had the salmon which was done perfectly and the accompanying risotto was perfectly creamy. I had the recently added pork loin which was also perfectly cooked. It had a red pepper coating which tasted great but I found the pepper pieces to be too large resulting in a burst of pepper flavor that overwhelmed the pork. Also, the walnuts that accompanied the baked apples were full halves and there weren't enough to go with each apple bite. I love apples and walnuts and want them to mingle together. Surprisingly, the executive chef came by to say hi and ask about our meals. I mentioned my nick picky issues and he genuinely listened and appreciated the honesty. The gratis pecan tart was wonderful, as was the ordered apple and gingersnap cheese cake. We'll obviously be back.
Great food, but shockingly poor service and it was a birthday celebration with my wife. Waited 12 minutes before waiter even approached, another 13 to get our drinks and then only saw him once throughout the meal.
Did not get the standard cotton candy with our check even! Horrible experience for our first time going here. With plenty of other good venues in Phoenix I recommend trying other places.
Four of us decided to meet for dinner pre theatre. We have eaten at District many times and always enjoyed it. We met at six to allow us to enjoy a leisurely dinner.As always the food was very good. Two of has had tomato soup, one had Caesar salad and one the cauliflower leek soup. All were tasty. Two of us had the salmon and two of us had the pecan smoked chicken from the 22 menu. All of us enjoyed the new and improved dishes. Service was attentive and we enjoy the lovely ambiance!
We chose the restaurant based on OpenTable reviews which were pretty good. We did not realize the restaurant was in the Sheraton. We came to find out that it is nothing more than a hotel restaurant with a trendy name. The service was horrible and the food mediocre at best. I'm not sure what the other OpenTable people were thinking when they rated this restaurant so high.
On the first night of restaurant week they ran out of one of their designated entrees by 7:30 pm. Unfortunately, the bread tasted institutional. The cream brûlée was more like a pudding than a custard. Rated as hotel food.
The stuffed dates were completely amazing though.
Excellent happy hour drinks with menu. Service was quite good, particularly bartender, Jeff, and our waitress, Alex. We split the chopped salad, and both decided on a salmon dish. We were very pleased with both in terms of presentation, portion and taste. We'll return when in the downtown area for dinner.
The special we had was a Carolina BBQ pork plate that included all the sides, and a nice glass of an IPA beer. The meal was very good and was a generous portion. The salmon dinner was very good as well. Great spot to grab dinner right by the Talking Stick Arena before a concert with friends!
The menu offers several choices on their $22 menu option. I've put up the pic of my $22 selection - a fairly plain piece of salmon on a mound of mashed potatoes (I substituted instead of risotto). No vegetables. Not even a sprig of parsley for color.
My friends all felt that their dishes, we all ordered something different, were very sweet, sauces had a lot of sugar or corn syrup.
Desserts were good. Service was good. Was nice to dine out in a quiet, comfortable atmosphere for a change.
Our entrees and dessert were excellent. We ordered the pretzel app (because we try the pretzels and cheese literally every place we eat) and were severly underwhelmed. Like, they were the frozen kind of pretzel nuggets you buy at the store…right down to the fake grill marks on the bottom. Not something I would expect to be charged $11 for by any means. We were sat back in a corner and our server got sat a very large maybe 20 person party about 1/3 of the way through our meal, so I'll give the inconsistent service a bit of a pass. Not a terrible place, but there are better options in the area for the price in my opinion.
