Food and service were good. Didn’t handle well that my wife had a cast on and was fearful of customers running into her. Didn’t seem to care with the two tables offered even though we had a reservation. Really set to evening for failure. Though we lakes much just this will make us think twice before coming again. Better customer service for someone with a neednis in order.

Absolutely fantastic. We chose based on proximity to hotel and were blown away by the mussels and risotto. The PEI mussels at District were better than those actually eaten while in PEI last year. Excellent execution, excellent ingredients.

Noise factor when restaurant is at capacity with all tables and bar occupied, is very high that a normal table talk can’t be heard by the person sitting next or across. One needs to yell so the other can hear! That’s not ideal for a first date night’ Service is kind, cordial and attentive...almost too attentive in eagerness to clear plates from table. Food was OK. I chose a better dish in the past than at this visit. Overall a very good experience and yes, I recommend DK as a good choice for a special occasion not for a date, though, because too noisy.

Nice place for a casual meal, the salad appetizer was great, the steak frites was over salted, which ruined the meal. Tiramisu was very good. Wine by the glass was good.

I found this restaurant on Open Table and liked what I read. We were getting together with three other couples (long-time friends). This place is outstanding! The food was delicious, the waiter was attentive and friendly, and the drinks were excellent. I highly recommend District Kitchen. The prices were reasonable, too.

I am not sure if I would recommend District Kitchen to a friend. We made reservations for afternoon brunch. We must have sat for 15 minutes before someone came over to take our order. Even after our order was taken, it was nearly impossible to get someone to come back over so we could order another drink. As a result, we did not stay for a second drink. The staff seemed confused about who was taking care of us. My sandwich and cocktail were both very good, but there are lots of places in DC with delicious food, drinks, AND service, so we won't likely be returning.

Exceptional meal and outstanding service. There were 7 of us for a celebration dinner. Cocktails were sensational...recommend bee's kiss! Everyone was pleased with their food. Steaks were excellent and cooked to perfection. House salad was very generously portioned and quite filling. Spicy cauliflower was a huge hit as was key lime pie. We will be back!!

Loved the cremini mushroom and arugula omelet—one of the best omelets I’ve ever had. The service was disappointingly slow and haphazard, however.

Great relaxed dining, 5 out of 6 had flat iron steaks which were declared delicious - the other Atlantic cod was also delicious. We weren’t hurried and service was very good.

We had a fine Sunday brunch. The reservation was honored immediately although one member of our party was late. I ordered the eggs and was offered the opportunity to substitute fruit for potatoes-- the fruit was really generous and the eggs and bacon were perfectly cooked. The restaurant was loud and busy but we lingered quite a while and never felt rushed. The service was attentive.

There was confusion with our service, our order was delayed and we seemed to be lost due to two larger parties on either side of us. The food however was fantastic so we'd give it another chance when we're in town again.

I receive a gift card from my son & daughter-in-law to the District Kitchen for Christmas. They had raved about it and wanted have me experience the restaurant. And am I ever glad that they did & that I did. What a happy, magical little place! From the way we were greeted when we entered until we departed there was never a lull in our satisfaction. The service was spectacular & unbeatable from start to finish. For my initial cocktail order I was temporarily advised that the specific liquor was not immediately available but in a flash the missing potion was located and provided. The food was absolutely tasty & delicious. Even though the location is not in our normal traffic pattern; we will be back.

A lovely late night meal — they were closing early (by 10:15 due to slow business on a slushy night — though web said 11:00 pm) but prepared delicious mac n cheese & grilled asparagus & a gin cocktail — a really nice late night supper. A bit distracted but friendly servers. I’d definitely try it again, and enjoyed my odd “room of my own” dinner.
