It was slow as it was the Fourth of July. Our waiter was excellent. The food was exactly what we wanted, which was a light appetizers and salad. I enjoyed it along with my family and we would eat there again.

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.

We went to District to celebrate my birthday. The staff was very attentive, and the food was wonderful. We had various dishes from the sharing menu and were not disappointed. Their deviled eggs are always tasty, and the mussels were perfect for sharing. We also had handcrafted drinks and enjoyed them. The presentation of the drinks helped to make the occasion special. The desserts we had topped off the meal nicely, and I particularly loved the cheesecake. It was not too noisy in the restaurant, and we were able to have a conversation and easily hear each other. I would choose District again for a place to celebrate an occasion.

The dining experience was disappointing. The food choices were not broad. Restaurant was quite empty and the server told us it had been even emptier the night before. That should have been a clue to leave, I suppose. Server were friendly but not particularly competent. Overall, too expensive for not very impressive food.

It's a bit difficult to find because the elevator to the basement is non-intuitive, but it is very much worth the search. Food excellent, imaginative, tasty, and the service was superb and friendly.

In the Sheraton Hotel. Downstairs next to a cool bar. Physically attractive. Almost too quiet. Roast beef was very good, so was steak. Branzino was pretty good. Service painfully slow but friendly. Good place to eat before going to Lakers/Clippers game--good 10-12 minute walk. Parking across the street for $6. Might go back but not compelling.

Altho parking is a drag and finding the location was frustrating, it was def worth it. Located underground the Sheraton Hotel by the Macys, public parking across the street. Love the decor. Very Great Gatsby meets speakeasy meets casual/boujie. Cocktails are very good with unique presentation. Happy hour has a great selection of good foods as does the regular menu.
Tried the tacos, fries, brussle bruschetta, salmon, tuna tartar (wish it had chips instead) and bread pudding (not the best). I would rate them great to ok in that exact order too.
Our waiter was super nice super helpful and professional. Would def recommend to friends.

There was only about 3 tables taken and the service left much to be desired. We didn’t get our order taken until 20 minutes for both drinks and food. It took so long we ordered drinks, appetizers, and dinner at the same time. Our drinks didn’t come out for another 15 minutes. Our server checked on us maybe once. The tuna tartare didn’t taste fresh one bit either. I was hoping for a great dinner and was left feeling quite deflated... not a very good experience and won’t be coming back...

Elegant but casual feel. Menu includes comfort foods as well as great salads; something for any diet. Good bar and cocktail menu. Several local craft beers on tap. My friend tried the Vietnamese French Dip with side salad and I had the Kale Cobb. Both were fantastic. Also ordered the Grilled Asparagus for appetizer; excellent too. Looking forward to the ribs on my next visit. Service was great. Bar looks very inviting for happy hour; would be a great place to meet friends. Highly recommend.

Disappointed in the servers’ lack of knowledge about the menu and drinks. Management clearly doesn’t have effective pre-open meetings to ensure the servers know the daily cocktail and what’s in it or how some of the menu items are prepared. The entry door is a hazard, won’t open and staff just watches you struggle with it rather than helping, to the point where you leave thinking there must be another entrance. Never saw a manager walk the floor in the two hours we were there. It’s these things that start to tank a restaurant. Good luck! The food was good.

The reviews I saw seemed good. But the reality did not deliver. The service was good and prices weren't bad. But, the restaurant smelled smoky, like fire. The wine list by the glass was limited and mediocre. Both the taco appetizer and the broccolini bruschetta appetizer were disappointing. The mushroom ravioli sounded delicious and was good but was dry with almost no sauce. The cheesecake I was told was New York cheesecake but was not. Overall the food was a dud and I don't recommend going or returning.

While in LA, we were looking for a great place and came across the District, though it is in a area of LA called the BLOC and somewhat hidden from street view! They had some unique drinks on the menu - so had to try a drink called the Penicillin (who can go wrong with Scotch). They had a great selection of appetizers - including deviled eggs and tuna tartar. The food was great as well and had a great time! It has great atmosphere and tucked away - a must see place to visit!

Walked into District and it was almost empty. Not a problem as I was not there to be seen. The bar does not open until 11am so limited to Mimosas and Bloody Marys. Not too much of an issue though choice is always good. Food was great and service was friendly, attentive and generous.

This restaurant has a great menu, lots of choice and creative and thoughtful dishes. We went on a Tuesday evening and it was a little quiet which meant the service was fantastic! It is useful to know this restaurant is in the basement of the Sheraton Hotel, we struggled to find it at first.

Tacos were cold and ribs undercooked and chewy. When we showed the waiter he got us new tacos but told us that was the way they prepared the ribs. I ate the ribs (they were terribly undercooked) then the Mgr contradicted the waiter and told me that they were not prepared right. My stomach hurt later but fortunately they did not make us pay for our meal
