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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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
