It was really good for conversation. Restaurant was not busy on a Saturday night. Food took quite a while to come out but the service was very good. Seems to be a bit of a weird location. Overall we really enjoyed it.

Had dinner for six here the day after Valentines. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Service was excellent. We were not rushed. Parking available in the structure and they validate. Would definitely come again.

I don’t know what to say here. The food was kinda just... uninspired. The service was nice enough but a little intense and in-your-face. Not bad... just... a lot. And here’s the thing... I know it’s cute to serve food in alternative ways... I just don’t want to be served in a giant, deep metal tray. Makes me feel like I’m either on a plane or in a retirement home. I was hoping for better, but sadly we found it to be an overall disappointing experience.

First time to District and choose it out of the DineLA listing. Loved how the décor was rustic with high ceilings but very cozy like you're in someone's private library lounge. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The craft cocktails were amazing, and the waitress was on point in helping select exactly what I would like. We got the family dinner, which we shared a salad, corn bread (with actual corn in it), 3 selections of meat: rub ribs, briskets and pork belly, and the meats were so tender it can be cut with a fork! The kimchi fried rice was flavorful, and everything was wonderful except for the mac and cheese which was a bit blend and not as "wow". The bread pudding was mouth watering, and overall the quality of food was top notch along with the service. We would highly recommend this place and come back!

Restaurant was empty for a Thursday night. Parking downtown is subsidized by the restaurant which is appreciated. Bar is nice and was full. Service was very good. In Macy’s mall downtown so good for lunch I would think.

Our hostess was the sweetest! She was so fun and easy to talk to and even recommended some bars for us to check out after dinner. Unfortunately I can’t say the same about our waiter...he was inattentive, unfriendly, and frankly a little rude. Other than him, our experience at District was amazing!

Unique interior and ambiance, professional service, fantastic craft cocktails, food is perhaps the weakest point but still very good. Nothing in this place is bad. Price sneaks up on you but would still highly recommend.

The watermelon caprese salad was nasty! It was drown in the balsamic dressing which over powered it. The mac and cheese was just awful. It was so watery. And very lukewarm which was nasty. I wanted to walk back there and show the chef how to make a easy mac and cheese that should be served piping hot. The only think cooked okay was grilled corn.

Awful customer service. I went here with a friend for dinner. It was really quiet; a sprinkling of patrons. We ordered burgers while googling other places for cocktails on our phones since we were meeting another friend later that evening. The waiter demanded payment immediately after ordering and asked us why we were looking for other places to have cocktails on our phones, which made us feel uncomfortable. After he gave us the bill within a few minutes if ordering, I said: we haven't received our food yet, and what if we wanted something else? He said: you have to pay as you go. I've never been treated so poorly. It's a restaurant, the waiter disagreed and told me it was just a bar despite serving food and having multiple empty tables for patrons to eat. I will never return. I regret not taking a picture of the receipt, so I could have the server's name.

Looking for a breakfast place in downtown LA and selected this one without realizing it was connected to a hotel. Food was good, and service was good. Cute place. We would probably love it for a drink, but it was not in any way special for breakfast/Sunday brunch.

This would be considered a hidden gem because of its location. It is in Macy's plaza but tucked in a corner downstairs.
This was a group work lunch. Everyone was impressed by the selection. Both starters (the corn chowder and watermelon caprese) got rave reviews. The main courses were also well liked. I had the brisket which was perfectly cooked. The corn on the cob was great but the coleslaw was very tasteless. Might need to marinated in the dressing longer. But I will definitely be coming back to try other options they have.

I had a business meeting with a vendor - it was my first time sitting in the actual restaurant. Usually I go for happy hour and sit at the bar. The waitress was very personable though a little scattered. They had to give us our check early because they were making an update to their system. They apologized profusely and it was no bother. The food was very good and my vendor said he found a new spot to take his clients.

Really disappointing.
Poor service (food took forever to arrive), was incorrect when it arrived and wasn’t cooked properly.
I’d heard great things about this place so hopefully my experience was a one off but I unfortunately won’t be returning.
