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.

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!

As always, District doesn't disappoint. Wide selection of wine and cocktails - they have happy hour which is a bonus. Decent bar food: fries with truffle aioli, tasty dry rub on the chicken wings/lollipops, and slightly above average margherita pizza. Great place to meet before the game or after work. Service was stellar.

I'm not a fan of buffets but this Sunday brunch buffet was great! Salad, greens, grits, eggs, oatmeal, pancakes, potatoes, sausage bacon and a crazy good chocolate chip bread pudding. Also bottomless mimosas and a really cool vibe inside. It's really close to AT&T. We'll be back.

We had a lunch reservation for 4 folks before attending the Giants game which we made sure to let them know as a courtesy so they could "turn" the table. The Hostess was wonderful and had our table ready The ambience of the restaurant is great with high wood beam ceilings and a very eclectic vibe. It goes WAY downhill from there. Our waiter wasn't really a waiter...he just brought drinks. IMHO, stick with wine-the drinks were premade (you could not order a specific brand of alcohol) and "light" is a kind word. They only serve brunch with no available additions. To say the food was, not only mediocre is kind, it was also limited and when we went to serve ourselves, it was non-existent...empty steaming servers that I had to actually tell the Bartender that there wasn't any food. No apologies, just "we'll tell the Kitchen". This wasn't a Rocket science menu...biscuits, gravy, ceviche, scrambled eggs, small pancakes, chicken sausage patties , bacon and some sort of potatoes. As a courtesy, we put a few things on one plate for one person-left it and then went to ATT to eat. What a shame! Don't waste your money...go for a glass of wine and then eat at the Park! I NEVER write these long reviews-especially when they are 95% negative, but I don't believe in Folks out for a nice day and a game starting their day with a negative experience.
