We came for dinner before a Symphony event and because it was Restaurant Week (3 courses for $33). The quality of food and convenience downtown make that a great value. Food was excellent and our server Alexis did an outstanding job all the way around. The meal was well paced and comfortable. My only constructive feedback is to change up the Restaurant Week menu options. We have been there 3 times for Restaurant week and the menu has been basically the same. There have to be other dishes this place does really well. Overall, great experience and we will be back.

I took a break from the hectic Phoenix Comic Fest to have a quiet dinner at one of my favorite restaurants--The District. It was delightful, as always. I took advantage of the Restaurant Week Special. The three courses (squash soup, pork chops and chocolate cherry cheesecake) were unique, beautifully presented and delicious. The service is always excellent. You will be surprised by the cotton candy after-dinner treat!

I've been taking my Mom & Daughter to your Mother's Day Brunch for 7 years now. It's always been wonderful!!
Only issue I had this year is our server did not come by very much to get our refills so we were always trying to flag someone down.

My wife’s pork was overdone, usually a problem, but they offered to replace it immediately. My wife asked for salmon as the replacement and it arrived in about 2 minutes. Awesome customer service.

The Distric American Grill at the Sheraton is an excellent down town Phoenix spot for dinner, happy hour or cocktails before a concert or sports event. We were quite taken by the quality of food preparation. The staff was professional and comfortable in their knowledge. Give it a try.

A little disappointed the $9 lunch specials only begin at noon so we had to pay $5 more for 20 minutes so we could get on to our appointments. We sat in the bar this time instead of the restaurant which is less comfortable but a more fun vibe. The salads were delicious and the burger going by looked incredible. Would plan lunch after 12 next time.

Very disappointing visit. At a glance the venue and cuisine looked very promising. However, the reality did not live up to the promotion. Avoid the chicken fried meatloaf with mushroom gravy. Mine was burnt and the meatloaf had no flavor. My wife’s pork chop was equally disappointing, too many competing spices and little flavor. The dinning room is very noisy when busy, and had the charm of a cafeteria.

Unfortunately, you were having a bad night with waitstaff, kitchen or management. Our dinners did not arrive simultaneously; we waited an unnecessarily long time for our entrees; the staff appeared stressed and rushed. Someone did come to our table, listened to our concerns and part of our meal was comped, but the evening left a bad taste in our mouth regarding whether we would return. Our regrets....

This was probably the worst meal I've had in recent memory. My chicken fried meatloaf was tasteless and presumably originally frozen. The vegetables were very salty. I couldn't bring myself to finish the meal. Service was okay. The DJ's music with the continuous backbeat for every song was distracting--and a bit hokey.

This restaurant has a lovely ambiance. The live music was fantastic. The calamari was very good, but over-salted. My simple green salad with balsamic vinaigrette for $6 was outstanding. But my husband’s $48 steak was terrible and my special (southwest chicken with potatoes, corn, and beans) was unappetizing. Although service was outstanding (thank you, Holly), the food overall was not good so we will not be returning.

Went for Easter Buffet Brunch. Food was average, but there was nothing special. It was just okay, but the real surprise was when the bill added an automatic 20% gratuity. If this had been a table of 6 or more, or, if there had been a full service menu with service, that would make better sense for a full 20%! However, it was a BUFFET. Waiter only cleared dishes and refilled drinks. No actual food SERVICE. On top of that there were only two people at our table, and online information had said nothing about mandatory 20%, (after tax), which was another $20 to bill. For what we spent we could have gone to a much more expensive BUFFET, and still left a nice Buffet tip for two people. We will not go back!
