Enjoyed everything about our visit. A bite before a giants game. I hesitate to give 5 stars because the next experience might be better and how do you beat a 5. Perfect everything for the occasion. Thanks

Because of the great review in the Chronicle, my friends and I had brunch (buffet) at District. Nice service and the food was actually very good but sitting out on a buffet table doesn't work. The food was rather cold so unsatisfying. Nice room but best as a club.

First time at the restaurant and will go again!. Even though our reservations was an hour later than our arrival, they accommodated us immediately. Our waitress was very detailed in explaining the menu options . We took advantage to the happy hour drinks and food. It was a great way to start the SF Giants night-out!

The food and drinks were wonderful, and our server was very friendly. She didn't stop by as much as we would have liked though, as we were left waiting a while in between orders - which, at a tapas place, kills the vibe a bit.

We were also overcharged on most items, as we went during happy hour and weren't given any happy hour prices. We didn't check our receipt til we were at the Giants game a few minutes later and by then it was too late to do anything about it.

Very disappointing. I wanted to like the place, but I wouldn't recommend it after our experience there.

Well, when you get sat down for a reservation and sit a table for 10 minutes and NO ONE acknowledges you...that equals CRAP Service!! Rude and unacceptable; would never return!

Brooks and Michael were FABULOUS!!! We had a great time. The food was very, very good. Happy hour is a great value, too. There were four of us and the total bill including tip, was $300. A little pricey for a casual bar/small plate place, BUT we did enjoy ourselves!

It’s more of a wine bar than a “restaurant” but the food is great— they have something for everyone. They also had a live band that was really fun to watch! Great date spot

Where else can you get a bottomless brunch for $20.00? There were some hits and some misses the food department. Hits were cheddar grits, oatmeal with bourbon vanilla brown sugar, braised collard greens (too salty but still tasty), perfectly cooked bacon, and chocolate chip bread pudding with bourbon caramel and whipped cream. Biscuits and pancakes were hard and dry and the gravy was sweet. Still good value for the money. We sat at the bar and were taken care of by a very attentive bartender.

Had a wonderful Easter brunch at the District on Easter Sunday. What a beautiful restaurant great location. Enjoyed the bread pudding, pancakes with banana rum syrup, ceviche was so good and fresh. Enjoyed an Irish coffee with my brunch. Good prices attentive and friendly staff. I definitely would recommend this restaurant to my friends. Excellent!

Was placed at a pretty small table with not enough space for our food. Pizza was not good at all, seemed like a microwaveable frozen pizza. They were out of oysters since a large group ordered all of them. Whisky selection was good. Was not expecting live band and it was so loud we could not hear our conversation w friends. Waitress did not tell us which cheese was which, then we called her back to ask, she def didn’t get it right.... 4 small slices of bread is not enough for 4 people and 3 different kind of cheeses. Might come back just for Whisky and Brussels sprouts. Everything else was meh. Would not recommend for dinner which it was my hubby’s birthday so a little sad.

Had a wonderful time with a group of 5 on a Saturday evening. We had a reservation and were seated promptly. Service started a little slow, however, once started it remained attentive. Excellent drinks and tasty fare. The noise level was such that we could communicate all around the table which is appreciated. Will return on a future visit.

Good option for bar food if you're in the area and/or going to a Giants game. Pizzas, apps, desserts were good, service was slow and towards the end of the night, we couldn't locate or server and sat there for 20 min before we could track someone down to give us our bill. Worth checking out, however service is inconsistent.

Cozy feeling place. The food was fantastic. Hanger steak was A+ and so was the avocado tempura! Our server Mike was friendly and kind.

When we were leaving there was a band setting up, so I'm guessing live music happens after a certain point. I'll definitely come back.

Great space, but try sitting in the high top tables - cannot imagine what the goal was when those were made - we would have been more comfortable on the floor! Nowhere to put you legs and knees. What a distraction. Plus, who wants to sit 1 foot away from the entrance? Bizarre. Food was ok - very boring Brussel sprouts salad - zero flavor. Steak tartare was decent, olives were good, but overall nothing to write home about.

District SF has a great wine selection and good food as well. Nice atmosphere for a casual spot after work. There's also a variety of seating options (couches, high tops etc). Definitely planning to come back! Brussel sprouts were amazing!!

On our way to Cirque du Soleil, we stopped for dinner
Found on street parking ( bonus) and were pleasantly and professionally greeted and shown to our table
Waiter was terrific, food delightful-only negative was the price of the small bottle of Sour beer $26. It was not priced in menu ( altho all other beverages were) so was a shock when bill arrived
Everything else was great!

Made a reservation 3 days in advance for 3 at 5:30pm on a weeknight. Arrived early and were offered a high-top right in front of the door. There were only a handful of people in the place and when we asked to be seated further away from the door, the hostess said they were completely booked. We walked down the street to 25 Lusk and had a great happy hour. Really bad customer service. We won't be back.

the interior design is okay but it could have been done more efficiently by changing the bar counter geometry to give it a far more open space feeling and inviting entrance. the food was pretty bad, and the booze menu was okay but they were out of the four things I asked for, two tequilas and two wines, so, I had to compromise!!

anyway, we stayed to listen to the live music and that was horrible, furthermore, they could have covered the windows by a semi-transparent shade to obscure the ugly view of the buildings across the street.

will not go there again!

I reserved a table for 10 and it was upon arrival. The happy hour is awesome. It’s so popular and they only had one waitress for half the restaurant which is baffling for full house. But the food and beverage came out quickly and everything was delicious.
