I had been wanting to try this place but I was pretty disappointed. The menu is minimal, the service was slow and the server in not at all helpful or attentive. Our food was lackluster and a bit cold (it clearly sat waiting for the server). The space is very cute and the wine tasting was fun. Will try to give it a second chance but...not for a while.

The prices at Ana are a little steep, even by DC standards in my opinion, but the food is absolutely outstanding! We've been a couple of times and have tried different dishes each time. We have yet to be disappointed.

The view is the best part about Ana at District Winery! It is a relaxing and beautiful view of the water, boats, and scenery. The food was good, but the menu felt limiting and expensive, and didn't have some basic things on it. Our service was VERY slow. Our waitress took a long time for things (that could not be because of a slow kitchen). We weren't in a rush, so it wasn't a big inconvenience, but we waited long amounts of time between seeing her. Overall, it's a beautiful space and had some innovative menu items, but didn't leave me with any type of "wow" feeling as I was there.

I have been to Ana twice in the past month and love this restaurant! The food is delicious and creative. I am a vegetarian and I found lots of good options. I highly recommend the appetizers and side dishes as well. The setting is lovely, overlooking the river. Sit outside if you can! Definitely going back soon....

The openness and light of the building sets a nice tone. The view of the river is exceptional from anywhere in the building. The food was fresh, tasty and pleasant to look. The employees were attentive and helpful. Its a great place for any occasion. I would recommend you try it. I'm going back soon.

The food was amazing, the service left some to be desired. We were seated and it took forever for our meal to come; we actually had to ask if it was coming as tables seated after us were served and left in the time it took to get our food. I would go back as the food was amazing.

The customer service was impeccable from Will who greeted and seated us to the Diesha who served our table. We were celebrating an anniversary so the added touches of the champagne toast and dessert were much appreciated. The chicken dish with sausage burst with flavor. The presidents wall decor was an eye catcher as well. Thank you for the superb experience!

No unlimited mimosas for brunch which I suppose is expected from a classy place like Ana. Lovely views and delicious brunch plates although I was still a bit hungry — should have ordered a side of toast or something. Price seemed much less expensive than dinner time so that’s a bonus. Can’t wait to take a tour!

The best thing about the meal was our server; she was terrific--knowledge, friendly, and attentive. On the wine, it was fair. It took three tastes to find one that I wanted to drink. The orange wine was not good, with a somewhat metallic, biting aftertaste. The food was pretty good, but uneven. The Indian-style, golden beet appetizer was delicious; we both agreed that we would eat that any time. The halibut was cooked well and tasty. My wife's chicken/shrimp dish was confusing; the menu didn't accurately describe it. It turned out to be a roasted chicken breast with a side of sausage of chicken and shrimp, we think. The coconut rice was unique and quite good. The dessert was the real downfall. The 'chocolate' covered pretzel with fois gras ice cream seemed interesting. Don't get it. There was no noticeable pretzel. The chocolate may not have been chocolate; simply by itself, it tasted sour, not sweet at all. The middle was something we could not determine. The ice cream was unique, but not something I want again. The server was generous and brought us another dessert. It was better good, but not memorable or something I would recommend.

It was overall less than exceptional. But the service, in particular, was a stand out in terms of disappointment. After taking our order, our server never once checked in on us. She didn’t ask if everything was OK after the food arrived, didn’t ask if we wanted anything more, no inquiries about whether we needed refills, additional drinks. Nothing. Had she asked, I would’ve told her that my food order was exactly wrong. As it turns out, I was so hungry by the time it was served I didn’t bother to independently make a big deal about it. Notwithstanding that, I certainly would’ve ordered another drink had I been asked if I wanted one. But I wasn’t. I’ve never seen anything like it at a purported upscale restaurant. I won’t be back. It’s a simple as that.

Exotic ingredients and herbs and unusual preparations. Need to be a pretty sophisticated diner to appreciate the menu. There are no simplerecipes or basic items here. Results were good but you pay the price for it all - the prices were over the top for a casual restaurant.

IT was raining when we met for brunch but we enjoyed dining at Ana at District Winery. The brunch menu was very creative. I had the ricotta pancakes with strawberries in balsamic, it was very good. The ramen portion was rather small, but tasted good - not as good as Ippudo or Daikaya, but pretty light and tasty.

The ambience is modern, the restaurant is new and very clean. The staff were all quite pleasant, and service was very good and prompt. I would dine here again, perhaps on a sunny day and sit outside on the patio. The view is gorgeous.

The meal started on a promising note with their savory and sweet baked goods - the scone and cinnamon roll. Then the kale salad with chicken, and the omelette special were just okay. Nothing was particularly noteworthy and we all left some on the plates. The orange juice was awful, sour. Coffee was just coffee, nothing special. It's a pain to get to with the construction so I'd skip it until things look up on several fronts.

Great food, although somewhat limited menu. Great location, outside and view. Great vibe. BUT we’ve never to a place with winery in its name that was such a mystery. Big wine vats but is the wine made here? Waiter din’t know. The server says the company is HQed in Brooklyn. Wine from there? The bottle says the company is HQed in Mattituck, NY. Wine from there. The wine list is a mystery. What vineyards? Nobody knows. How about telling something about your wines?!

Vegetarian here. My mom and I had a nice time here for my birthday a couple of weeks ago. We split a few things: The pithivier was AMAZING. The roasted hen-of-the-woods mushrooms were delicious, but a bit cool, like they had been sitting on the pass for a few min. The spring greens salad was yummy, but the Brussels sprouts weren't the best I've ever had. We were pleasantly full at the end of the meal. The service was very nice -- attentive but not intrusive, and genuine. The wine was tasty, if a little expensive.

We had a great experience there. We were early so we had a drink at the bar first and then were seated on time. I felt like I was closer to the man at the next table than I was to my husband across from me though. Loved all the windows and the presidential portraits. We decided to order a few starters, the grilled octopus, the mushroom toasts and the muhammara, and everything was so delicious. Our waitress did a nice job recommending things and timing the plates. Then we were getting full and were debating between another starter or dessert and were easily talked into dessert. After dinner, we took a nice stroll along the water. I'd definitely recommend eating here and look forward to going back!
