Would NOT recommend. The food selections were very limited. We were there at 6pm on a Saturday night and they were already out several of the food items.

I felt sorry for the food servers. they were very good but even their good service couldn’t make up for the really limited menu and the poor Quality of the food. It’s truly amazing that this is the restaurant that is in the Sheridan hotel because it really is not of the quality that you would expect in a Sheraton Hotel

The service was very good and our waitress, Brittany, was particularly friendly, charming and solicitous. But the food overall was a big disappointment. While the fries were perfectly salted and crispy, the kale cobb salad was underdressed and hard to eat, due to the giant-sized kale leaves stuffed into a too-small bowl. Every time I tried to cut and make a forkful, the kale leaves would spring out and shoot bits of dressing or various cobb toppings in every direction. The kitchen clearly does not know how to work with kale (a shocker in 2019 SoCal, no? ), as the staff put whole kale leaves in the bowl. The hard, chewy spines should be removed from each leaf and the remainder of each leave should be cut into more manageable, ideally bite-sized pieces. So maybe if the kale itself hadn't been such a tussle and a struggle to deal with, the salad would have been OK. But again very underdressed and also the shredded chicken was dry and stringy. I'd try District again, but only for convenience - it's not a food destination.

After confirming by phone in advance that gluten free dining could be accommodating and making a reservation to dine before a Laker’s game, was told that dinner menu was not available until 5, that my reservation should not have been possible, and that gluten free was “hard.” What a joke.

It was our 6th wedding anniversary and we wanted to do something not too fancy but not too casual either. I think the District hit the mark. It was our first time here. The ambiance was great nice and quiet. The food was good. My husband had the pulled pork sandwich and he loved it. I tried the butternut squash bisque and I enjoyed it. I also the ribs and they were just ok...a little too dry for my taste and a little bland. The mashed potatoes were good but the coleslaw wasn’t that great. But overall I didn’t hate it. The service was very slow, they only had 2 waiters. The place wasn’t that busy but they had a big party which made our server take longer to get to us but she was very apologetic and treated it us really good. We did have somebody come to us,maybe the manager, and apologizing and made sure we had our drinks promptly. I had the beetnik( I think that is what is what called) it was delicious to me. Overall I had a really good time. Staff was really nice congratulating us on our anniversary and we had a free dessert, a cheesecake and it was very good. I wasn’t disappointed.

We came for a family birthday and the service and attention made us all feel so special. Everyone from the hostess, the gentleman making sure our water glasses were always filled, and the waitress and waiter, were warm and attentive. We will certainly be back. Thank you all so much for helping make our night so lovely!!!!

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!

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.
