    Overpriced and needs better service. We had a large party, which we reserved about 1 month in advanced. The sat us outside with a broken fan and there was no air to breath. We asked to move and they agreed. They sat us on the other side of the outdoor patio where there was no fan and in front of the Don Jon's porta-potty... We asked again to move because there was still no fan and we didn't want to watch people go in and out of the bathroom. After moving us inside, we waited with no menus. Finally I just got up to the hostess stand retrieved the menus and ordered for the whole table to make the process faster.

    This was our second time and we won't be back. The service was awful. Our server disappeared after delivering our drinks and never came back. We had to flag down another server after over 30 minutes. We were initially going to stay for drinks and food but after being ghosted, we paid for what we ordered and went to a different restaurant. The wine wasn't what I remembered from our first visit--the Sauv Blanc had a plastic taste to it and the Reisling was undrinkable. This was a disappointing visit!

    It was great! However the drink/ food runners kept bringing us the wrong items. Also the server forgot one drink (but hey we’ve all been there) Overall it was amazing! The menu is pretty large for a winery and of course- the wine is 10/10! The ambience is PERFECT for a date/ night out

    Trying something new for my birthday, I sat down for 20 mins before the server came. Before sitting someone down, ask a customer if they want to sit by large pets or pets. Serving wasn’t paying attention to her table. The customer said his baby was choking. After witnessing that I walked out and went to another restaurant. Menu selection was limited.

    The wines were hit or miss as well as the food. This was our first time coming here and we had only heard good things. I guess it had been over hyped. It was a fine night but nothing unique or groundbreaking in anyway.

    We had a great experience. Stopped by on a Friday evening after dinner. We stayed to listen to a free concert in the park, wine and small bites. We had the fries and teriyaki bites. Service great, food temp and taste great and wine was pretty good! Ambience was nice and we were able to sit on the patio.

    I went with my partner for happy hour on a Monday night and we had a great time overall. Glasses of wine were half off, and while the happy hour wine menu was quite small, the choices were delicious and a great deal—the Riesling was outstanding. The Bee’s Knee’s was another great drink we ordered, and it was a very refreshing summer cocktail. We ordered the vegan board, which was beautiful. It was solid, but not amazing (the feta dip I’ve gotten before, however, is—I’d like to try more of their small plates). Staff are very friendly and helpful, and the service overall is very good. The view is unbeatable. Come here on a nice day and enjoy their patio overlooking the water, or enjoy the sleek, comfortable indoor seating they have. District Winery is a great spot and we plan to be back.

    I went in expecting the casual and chill atmosphere, but I thought the cheese boards would be...well a cheese board. My "cheese board" arrived to my table in a bowl which looked like someone had just thrown it together. I also wasn't a huge fan of the wine (I tried 3 different kinds in a flight). They should work on making it more of an experience for their customers.

    I was a bit surprised to see the menu was limited to small shareable plates. I would have thought there would have been a larger selection of food and wine. The majority of not all of the wines were of the dry selection and I’m more of a sweet.
