    The service was excellent. There were so many great selections it was hard to choose! My companion had cocktails and enjoyed them very much. The only very small disappointment was my entree. I ordered the salmon and it was farmed Atlantic salmon which is a food that I would not normally eat. But I failed to ask, assuming the an upscale restaurant wouldn't serve it. The salmon was prepared very well, though as were the appetizers and my companion's raviolis.

    Great good and the service was very attentive. Maybe a little pricy but I guess that’s what good food and drink costs. Strong recommendation.

    Our favorite restaurant for every occasion. We always get the Texas Wagyu, and it was especially delicious this time around! The staff is always kind and attentive, and the entire vibe is just nice. Plus everything tastes awesome. Can't wait for our next visit.

    Host ignored us. I told him we had a reservation and he took us to a table for 2. Reservation was for 5 and he seemed annoyed. Next table was a very narrow booth and one of my guests is pregnant. He rolled his eyes when he had to move us again. I got nothing special for my birthday. I’m sure no one looked at this on my reservation so why ask for that info.

    Drinks ok. Food ok. Nothing special. Small portions, no veg with entree. Celebrating our wedding anniversary (noted in reservation), never mentioned it during our visit. Asked to move table as we were put near kitchen even though restaurant was practically empty! Pricy for what we had. Would not go back. Disappointing

    Me and my girlfriend had an 8:30 reservation here and were on time. We got seated and waited for 30 minutes and got no acknowledgment, no bread, no water, no anything! It was my girlfriend’s birthday so we were all dressed up and excited about trying a new restaurant but were immediately disappointed due to the POOR service! I’m a pretty understanding person so I assumed maybe they were behind or short staffed which resulted in a longer than usual wait. While we were waiting 2 gentleman walked in and had water on the table and a server before they even sat down. I was livid! Since this wait had already put us behind schedule and made us late for our next event at Parker Jazz Club we made the decision to leave and find somewhere that would treat us better! Aside from that, the tables were so close together we could barely breathe! The best part about this place was the busboy complimenting my suit, thanks guy! Needless to say we will NEVER be back to this place!!

    Hi there, I want to sincerely apologize for the experience that you had at District. This is completely unacceptable and unlike us and I have already addressed this with my team so that this does not happen again for other guests. There is no excuse for the way that your visit went and to hear about your experience and that we dropped the ball on such a special night is extremely disappointing. Please allow us to make this right, and let me know if I can you send you a gift card so that we can have you back in and prove to you we are better than this. Opentable only allows me to send my contact information in a private message, so I will send it over to you. Sincerely, Holly Tittle Vice President of Operations Silk Road Hospitality

    I ordered the lobster risotto for $35. The amount of lobster was 4 bites and risotto was 9 bites. It was barely an appetizer and totally not worth $35. Total cost for two beers, one glass of wine, appetizer, 3 entrees and one desert was $154. That is way too much for what we got.

    Everything was great except the pork chop. It seemed undercooked. It was very pink and looked fleshy, and was tough. The chef assured us it was cooked and safe to eat and offered to remake it or cook it more.

    Ordered a bootle of wine. They had to go up stairs to their sister restaurant to get their last house Pinot bottle. The lighting was awful, the dining room was cold. The food was a disaster. The charcuterie plate looked like a kid put it together in a hurry, it’s my second time there. The first, was pretty good. The place was cold and star with little customers, It just seems like they are going to close soon.

    Our evening at District Kitchen Anderson Ln. was fabulous. The level of service from hostess greeting at the front door to servers (3) who delivered food and drinks and the conversation with the manager made me feel like I was back in 2019 when restaurant-ing was reliably fun. The whipped feta was our absolute favorite dish!

    We decided to try this for a birthday celebration as none of the four had been before - (they were kind to provide a bday card with a $10 gift card) To note for any future visits we were very disappointed that the Happy Hour was basically only for the bar, or outside - we did not realize that the lounge was so small or we would have requested the area in our reservation. Due to the weather we opted not to be moved to the patio. we began with a shared whipped feta - beautiful in presentation however the citrus and honey were not balanced which led it to be more citric flavor in many bites. The Salmon was very good however the green sauce (also on the roasted cauliflower) had a little too much Tahini for our liking. The butternut squash kale was also needing to be a little more fresh in its finish - flavorful but heavy. Bolognese Ravioli - obvious it is a restaurant favorite - delicious but only hinted at the black truffle (which normally is a flavor that makes its presence known). The shrimp and grits - the shrimp, maple bacon and n'awlins BBQ sauce were perfection - the grits were described as Sharp Cheddar but did not deliver - The grits were white, dry and in dire need of salt - Chicken Milanese - Very well done and portioned - a little more of the same roasted cauliflower plated with the green tahini sauce - sadly felt redundant For Dessert we shared 2 the Carrot Cake and the Chocolate Creme Brulee carrot cake was the crown favorite - but...the caramel porcorn was a genius addition to the Creme Brulee plate. Ambiance is great - service was a little slow at times but overall we would definitely return.
