Great food and amazing service! So glad they’re open again, and just hope more people will take advantage and enjoy the delicious eats! Cocktails and service was second to none!
Our waitress was AMAZING! My friends and I, had a great time. The food was delicious!!
Stumbled upon this gem on their first night reopening from Covid.
Everything we ordered was on point as was the service and the entire team’s effort especially lead by Miguel. Highly recommend.
Great spot for lunch, with delightfully prepared dishes and great service!
Bummed- last visit two years ago was great but very disappointing this time. Took a bunch of GWU seniors out for a nice dinner which was mediocre at best. Waitress was fine- serviceable- but bussers cleared plates and drinks (never pick up a drink without asking!!) before we were done. Felt like a nuisance at 9 pm on a Thursday night...
We sat in a booth midway from bar area and had a pleasant quiet dinner. Cobb salad and mushroom rigatoni both excellent choice. Servers were the best! Ellen
Thanks so much! Glad you enjoyed, we hope to see you again soon.
place is outstanding!! Oscar the server was so on point, his recommendations were spot on! can't wait to go back. Mahi lunch special was awesome, dessert was awesome.
Thanks so much! We hope to see you again soon.
Great place to catch up with a friend over a nice meal in a casual setting. The crab cakes were meaty and flavorful. Our server was very friendly, helpful, and efficient. A great dining experience overall.
Thanks so much for your feedback, we look forward to seeing you again soon!
Our food was delicious and the service was excellent as well. I had the jumbo lump crab cake and my daughter had fig and pig flat bread. We both enjoyed. Our drinks were also good. We didn't like the Torrejas “Pressed Sweet Latin Toast”, but because we didn't, we were offered to try another dessert. And we were so happy! The White Chocolate Bread Pudding was scrumptious!
Thanks so much, we look forward to seeing you again soon!
A Pre-Kennedy center dinner. Food choices wide ranging and easy to accommodate one diners gluten free needs. We will go again.
District Commons provides consistently good food coupled with excellent service. Two things to keep in mind is the the noise level is quite high which makes it difficult to hear. Additionally, the seats at the booths are too low and even for a 6 foot tall person like me, it can be challenging to access everything on the table.
Service was slow and inattentive
Both dishes were tasty and ample. Noise level was at 75dbs, a bit high, but glass walls and no carpeting does little to prevent high dbs. We will return nonetheless.
The service was very disappointing. The food was ok
Great food, the service was exceptional overall a lovely evening!
Yum yum yum
Great service. The Louisiana omelet was amazing! Highly recommend it.
We went to District Commons for the Mardi Gras Jazz Brunch. The live jazz band, food, and drinks were all wonderful. But our server, Ariana, was even better! She was so kind, bubbly, offered great recommendations, and overall just made sure our visit was wonderful!
Thank you! We look forward to seeing you again soon!
A neighborhood favorite with reliable food and friendly service, but crushingly loud. Unexpectedly this Sunday they also had a very loud jazz band which made conversation impossible. Fortunately they moved us to a quieter back booth.
Very nice restaurant; be sure to request a table far removed from the bar which is quite noisy. Food and service were good. However, they have oysters prominently noted on their menu; they should, then have more than two choices; both, in this case, from Virginia; not where those of us liking briny oysters would prefer. Other than that, again good food and service, many appealing choices and fair prices. Will be back.
We went to dinner this evening in order to celebrate my husband’s birthday. The restaurant had a nice atmosphere and everyone was friendly. That said, the server seemed pretty confused about what gluten is. He told me I could have couscous (made of wheat) but steered me away from another menu item, citing corn as the reason I couldn’t have it. Given that I’m not gluten-free by choice, I was worried from the start of the experience. I ended up ordering a salad and asked a different server to fill the kitchen in and flag me for an allergy.
My husband ordered the duck. It was considerably overcooked. The meat was grey and stringy, as if it had been sitting in its own fat under heat lamps. This is strange, given that we had an early reservation. The collards were macerated and lacked any texture.
This experience was really a head scratcher, given the many rave reviews found on this app. I doubt we will return.
Great experience overall. Our waiter was polite and pleasant and made great food recommendations. Everyone in our party enjoyed their meal. The food was delicious and and good presentation. I will definitely go back when I'm in town.
Thank you, we look forward to serving you again soon!
Waiter was great! Unfortunately they were out of the special, Mahi, for our 930 reservation but the duck was yummy. The white chocolate macadamia nut bread pudding was a bit disappointing. Probably just too much white chocolate but I give credit for trying something new.
I’ll try something different next time.
Thank you for your feedback - we look forward to seeing you again soon!
Good overall environment
Our waiter was really great the only down was the location of where we sat burn other than it was a great dine.
Great service and wonderful food.
Thank you for joining us, we look forward to seeing you again soon!
The food was amazing, the duck and blackened tuna were worth their weight in gold! Will definitely be going back!
Thanks so much! We look forward to seeing you again soon!
I rated it quiet because while there was music and conversations, which gave an energetic scene, the music was low enough to hear and enjoy without overwhelming the atmosphere. It complemented the environment.
Fantastic dining experience with my toddler. Great children’s menu with options for real food, not just pasta. The serving was pretty sizable and was saved for lunch the following day. I really appreciated that my server explained the vegetable preparation that I ordered for my daughter.
Food was brought out quickly (perhaps because I was with a child?) and our server was attentive and aware of our needs.
Highly recommended for families.
Great brunch options and they were consistent with the mimosas.
Great food, great service!
Thanks, we look forward to seeing you again soon!
Food was ok- good but not spectacular. Service was so quick for the first half of the meal but then so slow for the second half. Seemed odd
Great! Delicious food, excellent service, attentive waitress.
The food was tasty and the ambiance was great. We were in no rush--so it didn't matter--but the service was rather slow and they brought the wrong orders twice.
Food was good with a varied selection. I recommend the Brick Pressed Chicken. Fried Green Tomatoes were fair, but the shrimp bites served with them were tasty. Out of a table of six all seemed to enjoy their meal. One dinner's french fries were lost/forgotten and served very late after having to ask the waitress for them.
The service was fabulous with a knowledgeable server and very helpful. The challenge is it has very limited vegetarian options and that one mains option was not that good. Too much quinoa, very dry and little portobello mushroom. Would have been better to be a grilled portobello with a side of quinoa. The other dishes that were not vegetarian were great. But they are at a location near GW and international finance agencies that a more veg friendly menu would be good
It was very noisy because of happy hour and we were unable to have a table comfortable for the number of people we had as we tried to sit where it was quieter. Acoustics could be improved! Service was excellent. Sorry to report that three of our party found the food less than recollected status. Two were fine. The steak tartare and scallops were not as tasty as usual. Just too noisy because of happy hour.
The food was delicious. We enjoyed everything we ordered. The service was great as well.
All was amazing, I will dine there again
Waiter not so great tonight. Food excellent and front desk staff excellent though.
This established, well regarded spot seems a bit off its game these days.
