Nice find. Energetic restaurant with a bit of Mediterranean and New American flair. More of a beer-centric restaurant with a good variety of beer on tap. Food was tasty and well prepared. Will go back for more.
Pan roasted chicken is one of the best you’ll have. Also recommend as an app the buffalo Cauliflower
We picked District 118 for its convenience for people coming from different places. The parking was very tight at 6 pm on a weeknight. The restaurant was pretty busy with some big parties that looked like after-work outings. The service was really good and the manager stopped by a couple of times. We got a free app through Yelp, which got things off to a good start. The lobster mac and cheese was greatly enjoyed by the person who ordered it. The lamb gnocchi was very savory and the sauce was earthy and delicious. I had the scallops - tender, sweet and well-cooked. The salmon arrived raw in the middle, the outside crispy and seared at high heat. The dish was replaced without delay once the error was pointed out, but it was disappointing. The manager came by to apologize. There is a nice beer and cocktail menu. The prices are on the high side, but we enjoyed our evening there very much.
The lobster tater tots were impressive! We had an excellent meal and look forward to another visit soon.
Very bad service for a late weekday dinner
Our service was slow and the manager was a bit rude to my family that got there early. Our server was super nice but it took a long time for the food to come!
Chicken Wings were boring. Main course too expensive for the type of place. I would not go back.
Good food and great service, interesting menu would definitely go back again.
This place is a neighborhood gem. The service and food are always spectacular. I'm afraid to tell you how amazing the short ribs are because I want to make sure they do not run out of them for my next visit. Lobster tater tots and wings are always a nice way to start a meal. Bespoke cocktail menu and comfortable ambiance really set the vibe for a great evening out!
A nice neighborhood gastropub with pretty good food and really good beer
This is a consistently wonderful place for lunch or dinner. Chef is very flexible in making your food right for you esp if you have food restrictions!!! Can’t say enough about flavors and variety. Lots of
Booths to be able to enjoy friends and family. HIGHLY recommended
The specials were amazing - homemade pasta was awesome! Plus, the short rib grilled cheese was a must!
Everything was great. This was our 3rd time and would return.
Service is slow
Very nice atmosphere. Server was super nice and helpful with the menu. Food was delicious! Overall great experience.
Chicken was way over cooked. Everything else was fine but it ruined my meal.
Amazing food and drinks! Definitely coming back to try the rest of the menu!
Our waiter was phenomenal and the food was right there with him. Not a fan of the seating style where you’re right next to the table on either side of you but overall loved the restaurant.
Great neighborhood place!! We will be back!!
Food was excellent, but a little on the expensive side. For instance, a glass of sangria was $10 and a member of our party was charged an upcharge for changing the vegetable. Also, for the price I would have liked a few more choices on the menu, particularly ones without meat.
The ahi tuna appetizer was awesome! The salads were unique and extremely, although a hair small as a meal. It has an excellent wine list, and very attentive service. We will likely go back very soon!
This is a Bar not a restaurant. Food is very mediocre. Pre-prepared, not cooked to order.
This is a good place. The food was delicious and they had a nice assortment on the menu. Good apps, salads, sandwiches and entrees. They have a nice bar area, hi-top tables and booths as well as regular tables. I thought the prices were very fair and the service was great. We will definitely go back and recommend to our friends. Good location with parking too.
Great choice of food: very inviting list of soups, salads and sandwiches. Interesting combinations, high- quality ingredients, superb presentation. Delicious food, attentive service, pleasant comfortable place.
great food, great service, nice low-key atmosphere, relaxing
Food very good
Great waiter ( sorry do not know his name)
This was my second visit to District 118, and have been impressed both times. Somewhat upscale American fare has been tasty and fresh. The atmosphere is sophisticated but comfortable, with well done lighting and a good noise level. Both servers have been friendly and knowledgeable. The owner John is very friendly and obviously knows what he's doing. The view onto a parking lot off Needham Street isn't anything to write home about, but all in all a very solid establishment. Will return.
Fabulous brunch. Best burger ever! Great Belgium Waffles.
Went for brunch; good servings but bland. 3 people: a salad, eggs benedict and omelette -- all 3 thought each item needed one more ingredient to give it pop.
Great food, great service — always a good experience.
Food was very good, pricing a bit high on the guac and chips for the amount of food. Portions on all others were very good. Our server, Calvin, was gracious and allowed for a different sized portion to try the lobster mac good sign for a Needham St restaurant in sleepy Newton.
Great service! Great food! We felt welcomed walking thru the door till we left. Great dining experience.
I like the place. Nice modern environment. Had the calamari which was delicious and the short rib grilled cheese -also really good. My friend got the pork chop and sent back because it was dry but they were very accommodating.. they also gave us a taste of the wine to see if we liked it first. Had the meiomi Pinot noir which was really good,
Ambience was nice. Service was great! I’d go back
Very good food and service. Drink selection is excellent. The food specials of the day were very recommended and did not disappoint.
Our waiter, Aaron, was great. He was patient, resourceful, attentive and had a great personality for the job
Average in every sense. Not particularly a memorable meal or place. It's a great option if you happen to be in the area, but definitely not worth going out of your way to eat here.
great place for lunch. large space - could use more light at the tables. One waiter for lunch but he never lost his sense of humor. we will definitely return.
This was my first time there for dinner. The menu is similar to the lunch menu. Everyone loved what they had. Great casual place for dinner. Everyone is very friendly. The beet goat cheese salad with added salmon was excellent. Will be back.
It was “fine.” Nothing outstanding but not awful. Not running back.
Loved our food and waitress!
