Burrata salad. Tasty but only three cherry tomatoes. Very heavy burrata. Underwhelmed. Darius salad was very good. Robust and tasty. Drinks good. Priced well overall. Good experience.

I've been to the restaurant pre-Covid and really liked it so I took some friends. It was even better this time. My friends loved it and want to come back. Food and service were excellent.

One of our first ventures to eat inside since the Pandemic....was a terrific experience. Our waiter was very attentive and speedy with the delivery of our drinks and appetizers....the wings and brussell sprouts were scrumptious. There were 4 of us and we each ordered a different meal....the short rib grilled cheese was amazing...such rich flavors, the burger was perfectly cooked and tender, the salmon had a nice crispy crust on it and the corn rissotto was amazing...and the shrimp and scallop dinner with the corn rissotto was also fantastic. All four of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals! The selection of beers was very impressive. We can't wait to come back!

The menu is thoughtful with a wide enough variety to please most palates. Fresh, locally-sourced ingredients abound. I thoroughly enjoyed the yard bird panini with a side Caesar salad. My partner’s District burger was juicy and flavorful with just the right amount of bacon. Service was friendly, prompt and attentive. Will return!

Just the greatest server. She was so attentive taking care of everything. Not jaded at all, just nice! If you find a server with a jade necklace, you have a real pro. Excellent food and tasty cocktails.

A delayed visit due to Covid, but wonderful renovations inside..very upscale to the level one couldn't expect on Needham St. Service was wonderful and food professional prepared and displayed. Sea bass done perfectly, salad looked worthy of a painting, and, much to the modern exception, when the plates were brought to the table there was no asking "who got what?"--the people carrying the plates knew exactly where to place each order. Towards the end the volume did get loud, but we could still talk across the table. There are some 10 trestle tables outside, too, which were occupied, and plenty of parking as well. It's not a Needham St cheap eats place, but is certainly a worthy addition to Newton dining.

Food was delicious. Shrimp tacos are a must do. Only complaint was it was extremely noisy with a large bar crowd. Would be nice if they could implement something to manage the noise level. Server was new but he made a good effort and was attentive.

The food was delicious. I had the Sea Bass with asparagus and gnocchi. It was fabulous.
We had the option to eat outside but chose to eat inside where is was comfortable.
Our server was very attentive. Highly recommend giving District 118 a try.

It was my fiancé birthday and we decided to go there. The atmosphere was so nice and the service was exceptional. Besides the lobster being cold and they warmed it up, it was a wonderful date. I do wish they had a small dessert to give my fiancé for his birthday since they asked what the occasion was for. It’s was funny because we heard them start singing happy birthday and when we turned around it was for their coworker. Lol. All in all it was a great experience. We will be back. 🌹

Saw an advertisement on Facebook and decided to give District 118 a try. Our waitress was friend and the food was ok. I guess we shouldn't have high exceptions for taco at an American establishment. Glad they were only $4. How do you not have Margarita glass for Margaritas for Cinco De Mayo at a restaurant with a full bar???

I had the three tacos as a cinco de mayo special and they were wonderful! I hope they keep those on the menu. So fun to be out again and then to have such a great experience was a treat. Service was excellent and they were very careful about spacing people. Definitely will be a regular.

Had the Philly Steak and Cheese Egg Rolls as an appetizer and the Lobster Roll as a main course. Both were delicious. The lobster roll was enormous. My server, Elena provided excellent service and was very knowledgeable about the menu items. Will go back soon.
