The District Winery is a favorite of mine. The staff are polite and walk you through the wine and food very detailed. I went with two friends to have the Flights and Bites, and the pours were very nice, and the "bites" were quite large and tasty. Fan favorites- soy glazed chicken and the roasted brussels sprouts. While they have done away with their full dinner menu, due to COVID and staffing shortages, we were not disappointed with the quality nor the size of the food we received. The wine is always great!

If your looking for a place that is following social distancing and the protocols for Covid do not come here!! No one is wearing mask, people cough into the air instead of covering their mouths and the staff are unmasked and come very close to you. The food is good. It’s extremely loud in the evenings. The wine tasting is nice. It’s a good price. But again if your looking for a restaurant that is filling the Covid protocols this isn’t the spot to go to.

The drinks were good, the service was fine, the food was actually bad. I sent back the grilled cheese - thick tasteless bread, almost no cheese (three cheeses? No way) and a weird sweetish tomato sauce. I also got a vegetable dish which was like sweet pureed baby food. The french fries were okay. The salad was way too sweet. Apparently the chicken was good according to my guests but all the vegetarian friendly food was inbetween lousy and meh. Truly disappointing - and I spent over $250 for four of us.

Even though the dining room wasn't busy by any means at the time we had arrived, the service was a bit uneven. Our server brought us the wrong wine flight. Also, our table got really cramped given that we ordered multiple items, so in the future it'd be ideal to either space out the timing of the food or just have larger tables (even for parties of two like us).

That being said, the food and wine were great and we'd likely return at some point in the future.

I am somewhat disappointed at the menu change. In doing so, options for brunch related items significantly reduced. Adding mojo sauce to the breakfast sausages nearly ruined the dish. Don’t over complicate breakfast to the point where it is no longer breakfast.

I had an overall good time with my party of four. The food was really and we enjoyed the atmosphere and wine. I think that only thing that upset me was when our waiter came back with our receipt and gave us attitude about the tips and told us the right amount we needed to provide for the next time we come. Although, I did not contribute to the bill and tip since it was my birthday brunch. It was not necessary for him to come off disrespectful.

We asked our waiter if he recommended one of the merlots over the other, his response was, “I’m not really a wine drinker.” I would expect a little more from the wait staff at a winery, some base knowledge would’ve been helpful when deciding.
