We were going to the Cleveland Playhouse Theatre later with friends and decided to try District. I think it is a odd name for a restaurant, but we had heard good things about it. I had the Cleveland Onion Soup, Seared Ahi Tuna with the Spinach Risotto. The soup was very good, as well as the preparation on the Ahi Tuna. The Spinach Risotto was flavorful, but a bit too mushy.
Food and service is first rate. Staff always very welcoming and attentive. Frequent The District regularly before shows - Brae remembers us and always has our drinks waiting and checks with the kitchen before getting to the table if our favorite items are available that night. One of our favorite spots.
Food was overpriced Applebee's. Got the herbed white fish, pretty blah. Not worth the money, at all!
The server was nice. But, our table was so close to the table next to us that her backside was in our space throughout the meal. No fault of hers, just too cramped.
Too many other good choices downtown, we won't return.
Was a great dinner before the show. Great location, wonderful staff.
My friend and I went to District prior to a Playhouse Square event. The Server was very good and efficient. The drinks and food were wonderful . There were many options for my vegetarian friend. My only complaint was that they should replenish the delicious hot rolls and butter and not just bring one per person. District has great ambiance and is a wonderful addition to Playhouse Square! I will definitely be back!
We went before a play at Playhouse Square. Our food was excellent but our waitress had quite an attitude and really was bordering on just plain rude. If it weren't for our experience with her I would've given it five stars
District is a very good restaurant in a great location for pre- or post-theater meals or cocktails when seeing a show at Playhouse Square. The menu is creative with reasonably priced specials and vegan or vegetarian options. The decor is a bit stark with relatively bare walls and no table clothes. But it is an overall worthwhile and enjoyable dining experience.
We were late for our reservation but the host and servers were still friendly and accommodating. Server provided an excellent description of entrees and special availability wine. Didn't feel rushed...food was excellent. Will return.
The District was great! Went there before a show and loved the food and service!
Excellent food, great service staff. Owner very friendly and makes sure everything meets your expectations.
