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.

Great for a quick lunch! The burrata and grilled pear salad was great.

In DC for work and wound up eating here 3x over past 4 days. Food is delish, fresh and lots of healthy choices. Service was great, everyone a delight. Prices very reasonable for the quality. Grilled Salmon over kale, Tuna appetizer and brisket brunch special are some notable dishes. Wish I had a District Kitchen in Long Island.

District Kitchen is small and friendly. We sat near the bar, but the music and other customers weren't too loud for conversation. The staff was very friendly and attentive. We were seated quickly and 3 different people asked us if we wanted still or sparkling water. The food was good--especially the dry aged hamburger and the cod. The salmon was perfectly cooked, but the accompanying vegetables were mushy. The seasonal salad was good. The local beer (Evolution IPA) was delicious. It was a perfect setting to catch up with our daughter, who lives in an apartment close by.

Good food. Fun vibe. The waitstaff were friendly but, consistent with all the Yelp reviews, it does seem like they need some additional training.

I ordered the shrimp, very fresh, but it tastes a little bit salty, the burger tastes quite good

On a bitter DC night it was so nice to come into a warm toasty environment. Beer selection was good. Service was FANTASTIC!! Food selection was varied, interesting, and delicious.

Made reservation based on menu which listed variety of dishes however when arrived at 1 pm was given a lunch menu which was quite limited Food was okay but uninteresting. Nothing special about this place decor and food, could have gone to a local place instead going across town.

It was a casual business meal, so it was a good fit. Anything more than casual would not be the right fit.

Food was totally average/acceptable. No complaints, just nothing special. If it was cheaper, I would rate it higher. But at their prices, I think the food should stand out more.

Very industrial, yet still inviting, atmosphere and setting. The menu has unique as well as standard offering. The chicken tikka was extremely tender and very flavorful. The cheeseburger was cooked exactly to order (medium) with a very fresh bun that had been toasted nicely, and the accompanying french fries were crispy. Overall, a very good dining experience.
