Excellent! We went to Distrito for my daughter’s 21st birthday and could not have been happier with the choice. The servers were friendly and helpful, the drinks were great and being vegetarians we had plenty of menu options. The food was fresh and flavorful. The nachos were excellent. All in all a good choice. Will definitely revisit. More

We really enjoyed our Anniversary Dinner. We knew it wasn't the most "romantic" of settings, so we didn't expect it. What we did expect (and got) was delicious food, an out-of-the norm wine list, and fabulous service. We will definitely be back More

I loved the decor of this location, the food was great and the service was on point! But the noise level was loud, it was very hard to hold a conversation with a group of 4. Not the best place for a business lunch, but I'll come back. More

My son's graduation was at Drexel University next door, so I made reservations for 1:30 for a party of 10. The graduation ended earlier than I expected so I did not know what to do for an hour and a half. They were able to sit us early. Our waitress was very attentive as we had two toddlers and an infant with us. Food was great and so was the service. More
