    The food and drinks were very good, service was okay. Definitely not 20% worthy. Servers automatically get 20% so they don’t really care how they take care of you. That sucks.

    District 78 came highly recommended. Nish, our waitress was a pleasant surprise. The food was very delicious. We had the very tasty lamb rib tips for starters, and the Cajun Pasta was the life of the party.

    I love this restaurant. I invited my friend for the first time last night. But last night was horrible experience to me and my friend. A intoxicated guy was consistently bumping into my friend throughout the night. Then bump our table and our drinks were spilled. He was intoxicated and never apologized at first until I called the waitress over then he apologized. Our food and drinks took almost a hour to come out. I order for oysters, it was out of order. I asked for the roasted chicken, it was out of order as well. I did get a discount for the inconvenience. So hopefully I’ll have a better experience next time.

    The only issue I encountered was the fact that you all decided to change the grease in the fryers in the middle of the day on a Sunday. These things should be done before the restaurant open or after they close. Thank goodness I had a wonderful server who took care of us. He was exceptionally helpful during the issue and made sure we were good

    The food was okay and my waiter Heather was a great waiter as well… the only thing I didn’t like is the fact that the manager wouldn’t accommodate me an extra table that was empty for the whole four hours that me and my party was there. I’m aware that ppl have reservations and I’m also aware that they know the timing for these reservations so I know she could have just told us we had a hour or two to sit there because she have a group coming but she wasn’t even trying to accommodate at all. Other than my complaints the place is a little over rated and hyped up to be more than what it really is but again the food was okay not great but it was decent enough.

    Overall food was amazing, pay attention to the notes on the reservations, service was a bit slow to start, but Jasmine finished strong, the DJ was live and kept the vibe going! The manager could move around more and come greet guests at the table. We did get complimentary shots due to the mix up on our reservations. Great vibes, will return!

    Love the vibe here, good music (they had a DJ) good service and food came out fast. Veggie pasta was a little oily but overall tasty and so were the sides and drinks. And special thanks to Zoe for helping to locate sunglasses we lost while there. Thank you!

    On line the place looked good, but the food was sub-par. The entree came out before the appetizer. We couldn’t find the server but the person who brought out the entree went to look and found it. The lamb we asked for med rare to med, specifying pink throughout, it came ,medium well.

    It's definitely a loud, happening place with an eclectic mix of people! Our server was great, very attentive and brought our food in a timely manner since we told him that we had a concert at The Fillmore to go to. The food was very good and they had no problem being sensitive to my food allergy to butter and prepared all of my food without it. The only down side to the food was that it wasn't that warm when it was served which indicates it must've been sitting there waiting to be delivered which is a bummer.

    This was my second visit to District 78 and I was disappointed both time , the wait staff receives a automatic 20% gratuity, and it shows in their work ethic. Our server never checked on us once we got the food. The vibe the music wonderful the food was average.  I would not return, and I wanted to go to this restaurant so badly.

    It was my birthday dinner, and as excited I was to try the food,they ran out of food and didn't let the server know what they had and didn't have. When the orders were placed no one told us they ran out of certain things so as our food came we would find out what they had after waiting an hour just on the things we ordered. The experience was terrible. The only good thing was the server and you can tell she became annoyed because of the lack of communication between the cooks and servers. Very bad experience for the price I paid for my food.

    We came out tonight to celebrate my husbands birthday, we were seated soon as we walked in. The server was nice, she took our order promptly. The calamari was cooked to perfection, my husband burger and fries were cold. When the waitress said she was gone have it remade they just reheated it, my lamb chops and mashed potatoes were just ok. The broccoli was iced cold and the brussel sprouts were nothing to write home about. It’s not a must i come back.

    I absolutely LOVED walking in and being sat instead of waiting. Usually you have to wait at restaurants when you book a reservation. The Belle Island drink is definitely drink to get. I order the chicken Alfredo the food was cold & the chicken was seasoned but over cooked and dried out 😩. There wasn’t any season on the overall dish as a whole. My friend ordered the Brussels sprouts and they had an after taste and a smell to them. She also order the steak bites with the mash and broccolini. The broccolini was welted and not good but the overall vibe and service was beyond AMAZING! Unfortunately we had to go to the comedy show on Saturday night at 10:30p so we didn’t want to cause any delays with sending food back and etc but I would say for the Alfredo please season it and ensure the chicken is juicy.

    From the moment we arrived until our departure, everything was simply perfect. The atmosphere, the service, and the food were all flawless. While the only critique would be the limited parking availability, which is beyond the restaurant's control, it certainly won't deter us from returning in the future.

    First impression was that the front windows needed washing and sign was hardly noticeable. There was very loud music on a Sunday afternoon. There was a DJ. The food was good although to salty by far. Our waitress did I nice job after she discover we’d sat there for quite a few minutes without seeing anyone. Overall we will go elsewhere next time
