    If not for the really slow service, we'd give this place a much higher rating. Our server was delightful, just rarely saw her. We ordered a bottle of wine, and were there almost an hour before it came. The bread never came, but the manager brought us some and comped it. The food, however, was terrific! Wagyu beef, ravioli bolognese, and caesar salad were all delicious. We were there for 2 1/2 hours, mostly waiting for food. Good thing we like each other's company. Still, we will go back, hoping for a better server.

    My entree was not good at all. I ate barely any of it and the waiter asked if I wanted something else. He didn’t say if the first horrible entree would be taken off the bill so of course I wasn’t going to order something else. Especially if it was going to be as bad as the first. I was given a 10 dollar gift card as an apology I guess? I don’t even live in Austin and won’t even use it. Next time don’t assume a gift card resolves anything especially if your guest doesn’t even live in the same city Also I have celiac and the waiter acted like he really didn’t know what I could or couldn’t eat. His response when I asked what I could eat - well what are you thinking? How about you just tell me what I can and cannot eat. A very subpar experience. Three stars is extremely generous.

    We are avid fans of District Kitchen. We have been going and taking friends their for years. This last time we went, everything was great except for the grilled "jumbo" shrimp I asked to add to my beet and arugula salad. The salad was excellent as usual, but the shrimp was terrible. They were not very flavorful, small, and tasted like they had been overcooked and left in a bowl for a long time in the kitchen and then put on my salad. I am hoping a manager or owner reads this review, as I think they should know that the shrimp was not up to their excellent standards. Otherwise, our meal was very good as usual. I am hoping this was just a mistake.

    They were out of bread which was annoying, steak and bison burger were very good. The brownie dessert had a weird super small scoop of butterscotch ice cream which was gross and I can only speak for the server I had, but the service was bad. Overall not a horrible experience, but I wouldn’t go back. Many better places i can go for $120.

    My pork chop was very salty tasting. The goat cheese mashed potatoes had too much goat cheese that over powered the taste and it made the mashed potatoes dry the coleslaw had too much vinaigrette. The oysters were great and so was the cheese plate.

    We’ve eaten here 10+ times, only because it’s close to home and there isn’t much else around. The food is always okay but never great. The value for what you get is not good. They are always very small portions. They hardly ever change the menu and don’t offer many staples. I hope to see some seasonal items added, the quality of the food improved with some fresher healthier mainstream options and for the overall appearance of the restaurant improve. It has potential, but no one in the community actually thinks the restaurant is great and wishes it was better. And after years of being here you would think they would fix the horrible flu issue they have outside / but no.

    Whether it's brunch, happy hour, or dinner, District Kitchen never disappoints. My recos: Brunch - Chkn & Waffles, Heartbreaker, ANY of the sandwiches Happy Hour - Shishito Peppers, chicken tacos!! Dinner - Chicken Milanese, Gnocchi, Brussel Sprouts Service can be iffy, they're either really great or kinda bad but the foods and drinks are always worth it!!!

    We’ve been here multiple times for dinner and it was very good. This time we tried their brunch and it was not what we expected. We ordered the Eggs Benedict and Chicken and Waffles. The eggs benedict sauce was off. It did not taste like the traditional sauce the dish is served with. The eggs were perfectly porched and the side potatoes were amazing! The chicken that came with the chicken and waffle dish was dry but the flavor was there. The waffles were so cold and hard that the soft maple cinnamon butter did not melt when spread over the waffle. The waffles felt like they were made the night before and stored in the fridge. The kitchen did not properly re-heat them if that’s how they make them. Our server was great up to the point where we declined to order dessert he offered as he was clearing our table. We had not seen our server for approximately 15 minutes. During this time I asked the host to contact our server and she couldn’t even find him. Eventually he showed up and said “I know I was forgetting something” with no apologies given. The restaurant was half full and we saw 3 other servers running around except for ours. We won’t be back for brunch.

    Really nice restaurant close to our home south of Austin. Was nice and peaceful, with great staff. We'd visited their north location, but this was the first time at the south location. Great food, tremendous service and lots of space (our reservations were at 6:00 on a Tuesday). This goes into our restaurant rotation going forward.

    The food is very nice. It was our first time there took a while and they were shortstaffed, but then that was fixed and everything was very pleasant. Will go there again. It had some unique choices. I don’t often have trouble deciding what to eat in a good way this had a few choices, so I’ll have to go back and choose the other ones.
