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.
Restaurant is in a great location. Really enjoyed trying local wines and atmosphere is perfect for a classy dinner with friends.
Service was a little slow. Food all came out at once instead of appetizer first. Otherwise a nice experience. I said it was for a celebration but all I got was a congrats (been to restaurants where there’s a small gesture like a tiny desert or small free drink)
We were celebrating a baby shower and had a group of 6. The setting was a good fit for us, quiet enough that we could chat and hear each other, and the food was delicious. Highly recommend the Brussel Sprouts!
Sooo much fun! Food, wine, and service were all amazing!
Our waitress was less than average with attitude
And non attentive
It would be hard to overstate how great the food is at Ana. Add to that a view of the river and you’ve got a real winner!
The food and wine was great, but the service was not that great. Took forever to get our food, which probably was the reason I rated them low. Otherwise, I will definitely be back. Hoping this was a one off.
Our whole day was great, despite forgetting our umbrellas which they set aside for us to retrieve the next day. Good good, location and decor. Can't wait to come back the next time I have company in town. We did the wine tasting afterwards too. We loved Alex.
Exson was my server and he was so friendly, he knows the menu, he recommended wine he was very professional. Excellent service overall
Small ants were all over our table outside. I was entertaining a client and I was embarrassed.
The 4 of us had Saturday brunch. We sat outside on a very fine day. The menu had several interesting, unique items. Food was great, but service was a little slow.
The waiter was great. The food was over the top good. We both had the halibut and were so complimentary that the chef came out to say hi. The waiter gave both of us old guys a note for our wives that said “your husband Mede the healthy choice of fish at dinner tonight”. It was noisier than usual, but it was great! Highly recommended.
Loved Ana! It was a beautiful, intimate location to have dinner with a friend I hadn’t seen in 20 years. The staff was so warm - starting with the host when I walked in. Will definitely return.
Good cocktails, fantastic wines and pairing with food and overall a brilliant space with a river views
Excellent all the way around. It's the 'go-to' place in the Navy Yard area.
Great place for get togethers. The food was good and the wine list is great
Excellent wines and foods to pair. We love the vegetarian options such as the brussel sprouts with pumpkin brittle and mushroom toast. Nice ambiance indoors and out with pretty views of the yards waterfront area.
Great wines made locally from grapes sourced in unique locations nationally. Inspired cocktails and many gluten-free menu options (more than listed on the menu, so be sure to ask). Clean, modern space with outdoor seating and water views. Excellent service.
Truly the worst service I have experienced at a restaurant in DC. I first was seated right next to the kitchen door, without being asked for my seating preference on a nice day, when the patio was not even full. I was meeting a friend, so I thought I would just wait until she arrived to be relocated and move outside. As I sat there, two servers continued to walk past me without acknowledging my presence for 10 minutes. I was not offered water or a menu, let alone eye contact. This would still be unacceptable service on a busy day in a restaurant, yet the restaurant was barely half full. Finally, someone acknowledged me and gave me a menu, so I immediately put in an order for a wine flight. When my friend arrives, she can't find the hostess to ask to be relocated to the patio. Multiple people are standing around also waiting for the hostess, who seems to have disappeared. Suddenly, she reappears, and reseats us outside, where the service was sadly even worse. The server on the patio again, did not greet us for 10 minutes. My friend ends up putting her drink order and food order in together because we were afraid the waitress would continue to ignore us. We wait another 15 minutes to receive a flight of wine. Again, the restaurant is not busy, so it's unclear why it took 15 minutes to pour a flight at a winery. The food arrives and was fantastic, though our server once again disappeared and never even asked how the food came out. At this point it's 8:45pm (reservation was at 7pm), and we're late to an event. Yes, it took over an hour and half to receive a flight of wine (a follow up drink order was never taken), bread, and two small plates. Our waitress had disappeared once again, so we ended up flagging down a food runner, explaining that we had been waiting for 20 minutes for our waiter to reappear. The guy ended up removing one flight off of our check, but it really did not make up for the terrible service. Good food, great wine, horrible service.
Dope spot - go
Had a wonderful first experience. Burger Tuesday's is a must! We had the best service we have ever had in a restaurant setting. The waiter truly cared about our experience and did his best to give us attention. I highly recommend coming here, we will be back soon!
Girls' brunch here and it didn't disappoint. Food was very good and in a great atmosphere! While the service was good, the pacing of the meal was a bit off...drinks took a long time and then appetizers quickly followed. We hadn't finished apps when main course arrived. We felt oddly rushed but the place wasn't crowded. It's a bit weird when staff keeps wanting to take your plates. All things that I think can be easily resolved or maybe we just hit at an off time. I'll give them another try. The golden beets, mushroom toast and chilaquiles were probably the favorites of our table.
Loved it. Good food, good wine. Beautiful place
Delicious meal, although the menu st first was a little challenging to some
The service was beyond slow (and we were one of the only tables in the place). The food and wine was very good. Coming from someone who studied wine for 2.5 years, I think the wine is very much so overpriced, but is worth a taste for those visiting the area. The view is incredible for the place though. I didn't sit on the patio, but it looked very nice.
Pros: being on the waterfront, beautiful venue, great wine
Cons: the food is fine but not truly worth the price, the service was friendly but fair at best.
No server came up to us for about ten minutes and the manager finally noticed so she took care of us. Although she was lovely no one immediately mentioned to us that they were out of three dishes so after staring at our menus and being ignored for a little we had to reevaluate what we wanted. I went with a halibut special and it came with three cockles and only one of them even had the fish inside of it... not good for a $30 dish.
All and all, I would come back to grab a drink but definitely not again to dine. It’s just not worth it. Beautiful place though.
Always enjoy going to District Winery.
Great food, drink and atmosphere. Nice way to spend an afternoon.
I loved the Charred Badger Beets Salad👌🏽 the apple donuts dessert was perfect. And the Muscat wine was nice and crisp! The server was ok, the ambiance is def. photo-worthy.
Family in town, was a wonderful meal with an incredible view. Wine was delicious!
Great dinner but pricey. We split everything: burger, a side and a glass of wine and still spent $50 but delicious and great atmosphere
This was our second visit and while the food was still pretty good, the service was not. We had to flag people down numerous times to get plates for appetizers, refills of wine, etc. Our server basically disappeared halfway through the meal. Very long gaps between courses to the point that it was too late to order dessert. The restaurant was not particularly busy so it's not like they were overrun. I hope they can get it together so it will be worth returning. It's a fun concept and was good on our first visit.
I love the location, the sunset was really nice and always great food. One of my favorites in the DC area. Of course, their wine selection is very good.
My steak came out cold, our server mis-identified the cheeses; but the beverages, ambience, other waitstaff, and overall experience were between very good and outstanding.
Atmosphere and wine was great! Food was not good and way to small portion sizes for the high prices.
Exceptionally delicious food. Service was attentive, with a little room for improvement on offering more drinks. Two in our party are vegetarians and really enjoyed the creative and delicious vegetarian options. Lovely atmosphere. We were there on a quiet evening so it did not have the vibrant feel that I expect it offers on a Friday or Saturday evening.
Food was good and interesting. Service started out with an attentive server and then she seemed to have gone on break about midway through dining (we never saw her again). Other servers were slow to check on us and when they did they wouldn’t really listen. For example, they asked if we needed to pay (we hadn’t paid yet and said as much) but then said something along the lines of “oh you’re all set then.” (???) Seems like they just heard what they wanted to hear/were expecting to hear.
Had s 2:15 reservation and we were told as we sat that brunch was over at 2:30. Whole meal was rushed.
Everything was great. The food was delicious. The rutabaga perogis are worth ordering two portions. The wine was good. Service was good, then switched servers and never really saw the other server which was unfortunate. There was a lady manager there who was phenomenal. I watched her really take over and do the steps of service for our table because she knew the server was busy and our entree round was about to hit the table. Little things like that go a long way and shows they care. She really cared about our experience and that made up for everything else. Drinks were quick and we left happy. Will be going back soon.
