We have been to Distrct Kitchen several times and have always enjoyed amazing food and service. Unfortunately with our last visit we were very disappointed.
We had a reservation set for 6:45 for 5 people and was asked to come earlier as the restaurant was very busy. Luckily, as we live in the neighbourhood we were able to get to the restaurant early. Though, we arrived without a thank you from anyone for coming in early. Our server had no time for us and unfortunately some of the food was cold. We were so disappointed as we had family in from out of town and District Kitchen was always one of our favourite places to bring guests. I’m hoping they were just having an off night and this is not the new norm.
This is one of the best meals I've had in a long time! The special of the night was halibut and it was cooked to perfection! Desert included the option of two cheeses (I chose Green HIll and Manchego. The Green Hill especially was one of the best cheeses I've ever eaten!). My wife had the steak, which was cooked to perfection. There is a Paella on the menu which we saw going to table after table so it must be popular--and it looked fantastic.
We both had salads to start the meal, and they too were spectacular! It is difficult to get excited over a salad, but these were truly outstanding--the balance of flavors, including the dressing--and the amount of dressing--was perfect. We don't often travel to DC, but this place will be near the top of our list of return-to places.
Wonderful place to bring out of town friends and family!
Wonderful sauces and so happy to see a menu that offers half portions for entrees! Nice wine and beer list too.
We had the salmon dish and pan seared shrimps, and both were incredible! The chocolate brownies for dessert was also unreal, so good. It was a perfect date night for me and my husband. Will definitely come back and recommend to friends.
We had a really nice brunch here — the eggs Benedict with salmon was very good with a yummy bread pudding for dessert. Friendly service, too. Good choice on Conn Ave near Woodley Metro.
Really good food with nice menu selection. Enjoyed the fish special. Prices are reasonable and they offer small portions for many of the mains, which is nice. Would definitely dine here again.
This place is amazing! We were in town for a convention and picked it on a whim -- we were not disappointed! Our server was a little lacking in attention, and it was rather loud, but we could still hear our conversation. The food was stellar and plentiful, and an excellent value for the price! We will be back the next time we are in DC for sure!
Only real decrement was for service. It wasn’t horrible but once order was taken our waiter was MIA. Had to track down for another drink, salt & pepper, etc. Oh and he got aspects of orders wrong (Chianti instead of Cabernet, rare instead of medium rare). Also, service took longer to get to table than you would expect. Not outrageous, but to that point where you are going “I wonder what is going on?” Nothing that ruined the experience but a bit frustrating. These comment are more meant to help the restaurant than discourage anyone form trying it. I’ll go back happily given the chance.
Fabulous! A wonderfully flavorful and creative menu without ostentatiousness. Delicious! Looking forward to eating there again.
