Ana at District Winery
Ana’s juxtaposition of warm and cool finishes is peppered with mid century modern elements. Floor to ceiling windows create a bright, airy, urban-industrial gathering space in Ana’s dining room and bar. The outdoor patio offers views of the Anacostia River with a mix of tables and soft seating around fire pits.

Everything was impeccable - from food to drinks to the incredibly attentive service - we can't wait to come back!
Very happy with food service etc
Wonderful dinner; great wine; very attentive and knowledgeable staff. We had a table of 8 with lovely views. They have outdoor seating with fire pit tables which are lovely.
Great wine and food! Would go there again if I lived in the area.
Loved the art work!
Fabulous! Sitting right on the river the view is great during the day and night reflections make it incredibly special. We had four adults and one very tired 8 year old. Without hesitation they brought a children's menu and made sure that his meal arrived when our appetizers did. I appreciate a staff that can read the situation. The Caesar was amazing -- a great traditional dressing working with the innovative addition of roasted brussel sprouts and broccollini. The Monkfish was well received, the Cappelletti very special and my unexpected order of roasted chicken breast was perfection. We ordered the Robuchon Potatoes -- because no one wanted steak and everyone wanted the butter, whipped to perfection, chive laden bliss. The cocktails were creative and well mixed. 2 folks had the pinot flight -- recommended. Follow up glasses of Cabernet -- not recommended. Flavors are fresh, clean and inventive. Really well done and highly recommended
it was just awesome!
This was my second visit to Ana, the first being in May, and I would absolutely go back again. The winter entrees were incredible; better than the Summer menu in my opinion. It was the first truly cold night of the year, and the entrees were perfect for the weather.
The food was spectacular! Chef Ben is creative and passionate. The dishes exceeded my expectations in terms of unique and local ingredients, expert melding of flavors, and variety. There were many vegetarian choices and the portions were large offering great value. Courtney was our server and did an outstanding job. Great restaurant and experience. I highly recommend!
Food was mediocre; menu was strange and very limited. Prices unreasonably high--$6 for a basket of sourdough bread??? And whipped chicken butter? Entrees were tasty--but hardly outstanding. And waaay overpriced. Desserts were delicious
Very good. Pumpkin croissant and steak and eggs for my favorite. French toast a little to sweet / rich (taste before asking for syrup)
The thing I love most about Ana’s - other than the spectacular food and great service - is how quiet it is. Even with a nearly full restaurant, my husband and I felt like we could have a quiet, private conversation. Whoever did the acoustics here, knows their stuff! Thank you for that!
Amazing experience. Great food (the best appetizer ever, so good we asked for seconds), creative desserts and excellent service!
Amazing food! Waiter wasn’t the friendliest person but other members on the staff were very nice !!! Food was to die for! Wine was amazing! I went for my birthday && it was very nice !!! Highly recommended place!
We sat at the bar. The food was great and they have a small but good wine selection. You can go to the tasting bar to try their brand of wine to see if you want a glass with dinner
The food was a big miss. The dessert was inedible. The duck was good but came with an odd root vegetable with no flavor and lacking any interest. The NY strip was fine but covered in a sort of BBQ sauce that was unnecessary. The mashed potatoes were devine :-)
The wine was good and well priced. I’d go back to the tasting bar, but not the restaurant.
The service was very good. Friendly, attentive, knowledgeable.
For a $200 meal I expected a lot more and the food just didn’t deliver.
I love Ana- wonderful staff, beautiful setting- but the brunch menu is lacking, especially for the cost.
My daughter and I enjoyed our first lunch at Ana last Friday around noon. The setting is hip, modern and casual, yet elegant and upscale. The bathrooms are very clean and well supplied (dirty bathrooms are a turn-off for me, therefore I always comment on the condition). Tables filled quickly but, thank goodness, the acoustics were such that the conversation was not a loud din of voices. We could hold a conversation without raising our voices. Service was fast and attentive, water refilled quickly when the glasses were even slightly emptied. I had the Golden Beet Muhammara and my daughter, the Peach Toast. Portions are huge for an app and are a meal themselves. The presentation is beautiful and the combination of flavors unique. Loved the candied lemon peel in my dish. For entrees, I ordered the salmon with green curry rice milk —so creamy! and daughter had the burger with onion jam and crispy skinny fries. Although we took home a major portion of our meals, we look forward to reliving the experience in another meal.
Food was fine but I’m not going to lie the picture of Trump hanging on the wall is disturbing. I can’t believe you find that appropriate.
I will visit this restaurant every September 5th, it is one of my favorite places since that special day in my life ... thanks for everything
Fully enjoyed our experience here. The crudo was amazing! Great service, very fast. Fairly expensive but worth it.
I was unimpressed with the service, menu, and setting. Now, it's a beautiful setting outside, but when I was sat outside, it was flush against the railing where people were walking to and fro with a view of.. another building and right next to the outdoor service stand. You would think being beside the service stand may be able to get us easy access to the servers, right? Wrong. It took us about a half hour to flag down the attention of a waiter (not the one assigned to us.. whoever that was) and then is when we learned that, though this is a winery, we could not buy a bottle and open it there, but we could spend exorbitant sums on glass per glass of all right wine (two buck chuck is on par). The food we ordered was all right - but not extraordinary and was, given its price, a relatively smaller serving than expected.
This is a nice location, but there are other places who have more value both monetarily and experientially.
Beautiful location and excellent wine selection. We weren’t overly impressed with their current menu (especially for the cost), so we are uncertain if we’d come back regularly.
Ana at District Winery is a great lunch spot but it’s an even better choice for brunch. Creative food and beverage choices will appeal to foodies and the wine list is first rate.
We celebrated a birthday. Five people. The restaurant was close to empty. The food was just okay. My main complaint is the presence of House flies and mosquitoes. They were very distracting through the entire meal, and the server did not offer any relief or even state that they would try to resolve the problem in the future. We had to constantly ward them off.
As for the food, the flavors were enjoyably interesting. However, neither my dish nor my girlfriend’s dish was very warm when it arrived. I had the roasted monk fish, and while the seasoning was great, I thought it was a bit too dense. I would have also appreciated some accompanying vegetables (the menu notes fava bee a and other accompaniment, but it was too sparse to note), especially for the price. I would not go back.
It was a beautiful evening at Navy Yards, which added to our outdoor dining experience. Our waiter was quite good, as was the food. We tried the peach toast and spelt bread for appetizers. Beer selection was good; excellent cocktail (something about Bees with a honeycomb floating on top); and the wine was nice. Very noisy inside the restaurant but outside was more subdued. We enjoyed the free-range roast chicken, the summer vegetable pie and the capelletti dish with rabbit sausage. We would go back to this restaurant.
The service and attention we received from the staff was exceptional. They consistently checked in on us during the entire time; more importantly, we didn’t feel like we were being rushed. The food and drinks were also exceptional. Will definitely go back!
Great if you sit outside. Inside does not get the same feel or service.
Our first visit for lunch: enjoyed by multi-generations. Great for nice dinners before Nats games. Always an intriguing menu! Friendly, informed staff.
We've been to Ana several times. The ambiance is great, the staff is super friendly and accommodating, and the food is very good. Our prior visits, I would give the food 5 stars. This time, 3 of the 4 of us ordered the halibut (which we had ordered previously and it was excellent) and this time it was overcooked and dry. We probably should have said something, but we were tight for time as we were going to a Nationals game.
Having said the above, we will definitely be back.
Checkout this place! Great vibe. Excellent food & service with many vegetarian options. The duck was delicious! Close to visit pre-game.
Restaurant week menu was delicious and a great deal.
This is my favorite restaurant in DC and the food and wine is fabulous.
We took the Water taxi from Old Town to the resaurant to celebrate my birthday, which also happened to fall during Restaurant Week. The 3-course wine pairing menu, service and ambiance (waterfront view) were exceptional. This will definitly be our go-to place when we are in the area.
Our service was excellent and the waterfront views were really lovely. The menu offered enough for a variety of dietary preferences, and the dishes were executed and presented well. It was also great to see so many local and artisanal producers highlighted in the menu.
The only setback was the noise level, which made it very difficult to have a conversation. However, overall the experience was worth the drive in to the city.
Food was absolutely delish. 10/10 for food. Loved every bite! Inventive, tasty and great portion sizes. Service was pretty terrible. It took a solid 30 mins just so we could put in our food order. Our waiter barely attended to us. My plate was taken away while I was still eating. (My food was in my hand about to go in my mouth when he took it.) We didn’t have silverware for our desserts. I had to go up and grab some myself. Our check was finally given to us by the manager probably because she could see we were waiting forever. It really hindered the overall experience!
The food and atmosphere were great! The service was very good as well. Would definitely recommend.
Food & serve good. Restaurant noise made the experience less enjoyable.
A friend and I did lunch during restaurant week. We had eaten there once before and were eager to go back. It was a great deal...3 courses for $22! It was a hot day so the hibiscus cooler lived up to its name. I loved the peach toast with speck. So yummy! The roasted trout was fabulous...such a different preparation with shiitake mushrooms and a lovely turnip lemongrass purée. Dessert was fun...caramel apple with ice cream and cider donuts! I left happily stuffed!
I was blown away by my dinner here and will be thinking about the heirloom tomato tartare, vegetable shwarma and peach tart for weeks to come. Serious compliments to the Chef, who has a very sure hand with spices and a wonderful imagination for creative and utterly delicious dishes. The fact that it is a lovely, relaxing setting and the service is friendly but unobtrusive doesn't hurt either...All I can add is "Go, Go, Go!_
