Great food and, as always, great service! My husband and I usually ride our bicycles there on the weekends for brunch, since it is very close to our house. We recently ate there for their New Year's prix fixe menu and it was also awesome!

We love District and Oasthouse and I'm sure this was an isolated occurrence being New Years Eve. We have no problem paying the price for delicious fresh food. We are both fairly adventurous when it comes to trying new flavors and such and both restaurants have been great for this. The NYE menu was overall pretty plain and the serving sizes for $75/person were small. We will definitely be returning to District, just not on a night with a Prix Fixe menu.

My fiancé and I went to district kitchen for New Year's eve, the service was excellent. District kitchen always has the best staff most friendly and most helpful. Everything was perfect, and our food was really good as always. Try the shishito peppers, for an appetizer. They were amazing!

A wonderful modern, low lighting, but comfortable atmosphere. The menu is seasonal, so lots of fresh ingredients in the food and creative dishes. The employees are all polite and efficient, too! The nutella mousse really stood out. Sprinkled sea salt and candied orange zest really made it fantastic. The bartenders are great at doing mocktails, too! Trust them and you will get a unique drink.

My experience with The District has been universally good. But when I see flecks of red pepper and ask is a dish is "spicy", I expect to hear, "Maybe a little". If I had been told that, I would not have tasted the squash bisque. For folks who are not sensitive to spice, I guess this would not have been a problem. But for me, it definitely was. I should have sent it back, but I was hungry, so I just decided to grin and bear it. On a more positive note, the beet salad was delicious, but the $10 price tag for the size of the salad was a bit excessive. Perhaps a $10 salad at dinner would have been more acceptable? And that makes sense, b/c The District is usually only open for lunch/brunch on weekends. Fortunately, the restaurant was pretty empty, so it was quiet, but when there are more people present, it gets pretty noisy.

Service was somewhat slow tonight. 45 minutes to get our entrees. Mahi-mahi with risotto was good as was the bison burger.

This is my third time here. Fantastic experience. The food was phenomenal , the server's wine recommendation was spot on to go with our meal, and the atmosphere is a neat rustic/urban feel and it's just awesome! For as high quality as the food is, the price is lower than I expected! Highly recommended.

This is one of my favorite places to go since it's down the street from us. The ambiance is great, love the industrial feel of the restaurant but it's still good for a romantic night out or even a group of friends gathering up for dinner.

The dinner and ambiance for my parents 55th wedding anniversary was perfect. The food was amazing! Everyone in our party had something different and all were very pleased with their delicious entree. Wine was good as well. Thanks for a great evening.
