The restaurant really took advantage of the fact that they have a good location, which leads to awesome views. Even better was the service; they weren't hovering over us at all times, but were there when we did need them. Furthermore, the food was wonderful as well -- just the right number of selections (i.e., doesn't overwhelm but doesn't disappoint) and they were delicious.
Everything was delicious- food, wine, dessert. The staff was on point. We love this place :)
One word: exceptional.
We sat outside for a late dinner on a Saturday night. The cocktails are delicious...the signature Manhattan was sublime. I also loved the food. We shared the crab salad appetizer, the NY Strip entree, a side of mashed parsnips that were a bit like baby food but delicious and the crispy brussels sprouts.
Appetizers and entrees were beautifully presented, but even more delicious! Wines were reasonably priced for the area and of a good variety. Service was impeccable. Highly recommend!
Ordered a burger and iced tea. It took 15 -20 minutes to get our food. It had been a while since seeing our server, so I asked another to check on our food. Our server arrived as he was going to check for us. The burger was cooked to order but tasted “sour”. I suspect the meat or cheese was going bad. My friend ordered the same and had the same reaction.
We explained our experience to our server, who apologized. Our server removed the cost of our soft drinks for the inconvenience.
Great food and wine
Great food, great service
Enjoyed a Saturday brunch. Delicious signature dishes, and cocktails. Excellent service with a smile. Reasonably priced for DC. A comfortable and casual atmosphere, with view of SE waterfront.
We were a group and we were late thanks to Cherry Blossom traffic on top of rush hour coming from Northern Virginia and they could not have been nicer. Everything was great! This was my third visit and I'll definitely be back. The wine is solid, the mixed drinks were delicious and the food was just awesome. Thanks for being so good to us Friday night!!!
This is one of my favorite restaurants and until this meal very reliable. The server was non engaging and forgot our entree entirely. Didn’t apologize when we asked where our meal was and she realized she hadn’t put the order in. Their wonderful bartender AZ has left and he was definitely one of the restaurants selling points.
I’ll go back but it is no longer my go to restaurant.
Although the ambience and waterfront location is second to none, the wine is overpriced for the fingerlake vineyards reputation of wine. So too is the cost of food given the poor service. Staff were unable to fully explain the menu without sounding overly pretentious.
This District Winery has such potential but word of mouth is spreading on how poor this restaurant is with respect to service and being much to overpriced.
If there is only one place you can go for a great meal out; make it here. The entire experience was fantastic.
Delicious from start to finish, with excellent service. I wish I could eat Ana's mushroom tartine every day for the rest of my life.
First time dining at Ana at District Winery. Food was tasty but wine (unoaked chard) was underwhelming.
Great dining experience. Our table wasn’t ready but they were so nice and gave us a free round. I think we waited 5mins. Everything we ate was delicious. Some portions were tiny for price. Service was really good too.
I enjoyed the experience because of the great company, not the restaurant ;). I felt it wasn't worth the price tag. The Malbec was great and I love the space, but the food was definitely sub-par. The steak was tough and the beef dish was not memorable. I felt that I could find much better quality food elsewhere. It was as if the food was pretending to be fine dining kind of like when someone fakes their grades on a transcript.
Amazing experience from beginning to end. The hostess was kind, the service was good and everything on the menu from appetizers to desserts was unique and flavorful! I loved their drink selections which included not only wine but other spirits as well.
I have been there before but not for lunch. Service great, great try just didn’t like the food.
The food and service were fabulous. Our waitress was a trainee, but we assumed that the waitress trailing her was a trainee. Wehen we found out that she was the trainee we congratulated her for being so professional.
The view of the river and snow laden grounds enhanced a delightful birthday.
Great location, nice view of the river! Loved the presidential portraits against the wall. Don't miss the bacon gruyere scone, DELICIOUS! My friends had the potato pancakes, also delicious!!
Our server was a bit slow and not very engaged, but otherwise a great experience!
I want to come back when it's warmer and we can sit outside!
We came with a group of 6 people to celebrate my husband's birthday. The DW team was more than generous and kind. The food was incredible - in particular the toasts, perogies and cod! And the drinks are so fun and unique. Come early to put your name on the list for a wine tasting, the space is limited. Thanks, DW!
Waitress was oddly not engaged.
Would ask how everything is and turn away before answer
Poured taste of white wine and asked how it was, when told it was a bit warm, said ok and filled glass and walked away
Took knife and started to take plate away when I was had a bite of salad on my fork that I had yet to eat?
The rest of the staff was very attentive and professional
The entrees were bursting with flavor. Maybe a little too much? The food was a little rich. The chicken was very tender.
Great decor & view of the Potomac. Excellent liver flavored ice cream. Once it serves it’s own wine, I’m sure pairing will occur.
Ana at District Winery is open, airy and bright with floor to ceiling windows for the gorgeous river & boardwalk views. Fantastic cocktail Harvest Bees citrus-floral liquid gold with unusual lavender bitters and perfect lamb with fig reduction & beet falafel - delicious food and great service. Will be going back.
I loved the ambience of the restaurant and the food was very good. The service was ‘odd’ - staff was friendly but seemed disorganized. It took a long time to just to get a bottle of wine then it was left on the table so it got warm - it was a Chardonnay : ) I would go back - just be patient. The other funny thing is they have a beautiful view of the water and they kept putting the shades down....
Excellent service, food and wine were delicious
Great experience across the board, great food, lovely service, fun and attractive atmosphere
Great food - very innovative & fresh, wine selection was smaller than I’d expect for a winery but the wine we chose paired very well with our food, beautiful views of the river
The food was delicious but we were pretty disappointed with the reception we received upon arrival, the service at the table, and the obvious encouragement of us to leave at the end of the night.
The food was amazing, the location was beautiful. It was a fairly tiny seating area so it gets pretty loud at peak times. Overall my boyfriend and I enjoyed ourselves very much. Will be going again soon!
Popped into Ana for lunch and wine with a friend; really great food - we split the crab imperial eggs and the chicken and kale salad. The cocktails were also delicious. Staff was pleasant. All in all a great first impression, will definitely return for another meal and winery tour.
service was not good, and kind of ruined the whole thing. asked for a wine menu to order a second glass of wine right before the entree came out, and no one came back to actually take my order until i was done eating my dinner. this on top of the food being average at best (had the octopus appetizer and duck entree, both recommended by the server) means i won't return and wouldn't recommend this place.
Our first experience at Ana was wonderful! It's obviously a new hot spot, with a great crowd and lots of happy diners. Tons of attentive staff with great suggestions is always a 'plus' for me. The food was delicious to all three of us. The wine menu is not extensive but includes a good variety. View is so nice, even on a rainy evening. Can't imagine how popular it will be in the summer! Wine tours and a tasting bar are available at District Winery also. Menu is a little pricey for regular dining; two cocktails and only one bottle of wine, over $300.
Would happily return.
My 30th birthday. Love this place so much.
The rage has been all about the Navy Yard and the week before, we had dined at Chloe which was magnificent.
I arrived at the bar and was greeted by great hosts. I said I would sit at the bar and wait. Bad mistake. Bar back immediately gave me water but obviously I was not a regular so I sat and waited while one bartender chatted up a couple.
Another bartender came from the back and immediately saw a couple he knew and went right to them and didn’t acknowledge me (served the couple right next to me and never once said a word.)
The other bartender finally finished with the couple, made a few drinks for others and finally asked me if I needed anything. I ordered a drink and had to ask for the menu.
No one ever came back to ask me if I would like to order anything and my party arrived and I got up and went to the table.
The rest of the experience was so tainted by my bar experience that I don’t care to comment any further.
If you go to the restaurant, definitely skip the bar.
Limited but eclectic menu wine options limited craft cocktails and small but diverse craft beer selection
Only so so. Not worth the money. Waitress was slow and the food was only mediocre. Disappointed. Won’t go again.
Awesome pasta dish with an open style pasta and cheese...had to fight my wife for last fork full...
