Service was a bit slow, they were not busy at all so it was a little surprising. Overall it was good, everyone enjoyed their meal. Was told the potatoes that came with the steak were very mediocre, on the flip side another friend said the brussel sprouts were great.
The food was amazing, only rivaled by the fantastic staff. Will definitely be coming back!
Overall, great for our big group and service was good. However, the food was subpar.
We sat and waited a long time to place an order even though the restaurant was almost empty on a Saturday night. Water was not refilled. Food was very good but the lack of service and minimal ambiance would keep me from going back
I had a reservation for outside and walked in to no hostess but was told we could sit anywhere so I decided to sit inside. The service was.... not great. The waiter was kind but he took the order and disappeared for 20-25 minutes in between everything. My appetizer didn’t come with the sauces listed on the menu and they ran out of the one dessert I wanted. My veggies/sides came out super cold but he re-made then for me when I asked. The GM was also very nice but came over to the table only after finding out my food was cold. No table touch although I made eye contact frequently and he saw we were there for awhile (which he mentioned on the table touch), I know it’s Houston Restaurant week and next door (the oyster bar) was packed but I expected so much more. At the end, I needed to use the restroom and it was FILTHY. Unusable. Worse than a gas station in the middle of nowhere’s restroom. I couldn’t stand being in there. I would love to return but necessary changes should be made.
Walked in and was immediately greeted with a smile and pleasantly surprised with the restaurant week option ( I am here on a business trip and was unaware). The menu is accommodating for all palettes. The general manager and our server worked in perfect harmony throughout the night. The establishment in itself is beautiful and the food was delicious. I was actually surprised at how empty it was tonight. If I lived in Houston, this would be in my regular dinning rotation.
The food was pretty good, the service was terrible. The one issue with food was the deviled eggs, somewhat tasty but sloppy presentation. The music was so loud I had to ask it to be turned down. The drinks took forever to get, bad location of bar in far back room of restaurant. I don't think the server knew the menu well or could hear us well for that fact. Tasty food but won't go back. The manager needs to kick it up with server training.
The District is a very convenient spot to eat when attending an event in the Theater District. We are hoping they can correct their problems so they can be a great option. First, the menu and food are very good. Small plates, fresh salads and hearty mains give offer some great selections. The ambiance is good and the servers seem very willing to please. We arrived and were seated. A server approached and brought menus along with water. There was some discussion among the several severs but no one came to take our order for 15 minutes despite very few customers. Another server finally appeared and apologized. Then she brought the wrong bottle of wine. Then it took forever for the food to come out (not her fault). Then the restroom was a wreck with no toilet paper. It just seems the management is not paying attention to the details. We left a nice tip because the server was really trying. You just expect better than this when your tab is $100.
The food was good, but the service was extremely poor. The waitress kept apologizing for the device stating the problem was lack of staff. She said we should come back in a month when they have things worked out
Great service, fun restaurant, one of only a couple tables on a Friday which was very odd.
There was no need for a reservation. Atmosphere was nice. The oysters were puny and not scraped properly and were mangled. Their version of"short ribs" were not at all short ribs. Best part were the Crawfish hush puppies. Will not be returning.
Our waiter Jacen (might be spelling it wrong) was super awesome! Everyone at the restaurant were super nice and very accommodating. The food wasn’t that good and one of the people in our party received cold and then reheated food but other than that great ambience
Was great and accommodating
Service was well meaning, if somewhat lethargic. Food was very ok....not hot, varied from the menu presentation, very uneven. Drinks were very slow, and beer menu was spotty.
There was a concert at Minute Maid Park, and there were many more customers than normal for a Friday night. I had a reservation, but there was not a clean table when I arrived. I sat at the bar, which turned out to be the best option. I had a waitress on her first night and she was OVERWHELMED. The Manager and another waitress stepped in to help her. A couple sitting next to me did not get their meal until after we had finished ours. They had to inquire what the problem was. There were many upset people during this evening. The restaurant was poorly prepared for the large number of customers. Many tables were left uncleaned for an unacceptable period of time.
We enjoyed the food. It was a little overpriced I thought.
Do not go here. The service was horrible and the restaurant was not even that busy. We waited 20 minutes to get a beer. Ordered another one when we placed our food order and it did not arrive until we were almost done with our meal. We saw another party of 4 sit down; wait 15 minutes and no waiter showed up so they left. I don't understand how they stay in business.
We were there to go to a concert downtown thought it would be nice to try a new restaurant. It was not crowded. Food sat in the window for over 10 min just waiting on a salad and then come to find out they were out of the salad my husband ordered. Food was cold by the time we got it. We did get our meal comped however the manager didn’t seem to really care how bad our service was. Don’t plan on going back.
Great little spot. Food was good, not great. The waitress appeared to be quite flustered despite a very calm and understanding table and nobody else in the restaurant.
Overall this was a great place for a date. Good food and not too crowded for a Saturday night. Just wish restaurants would quit putting fennel seeds in some of their recipes. Not everyone likes the taste and it can make the food taste unpleasant. Just saying.
The District was such a cute place with indoor and outdoor seating available. They play a lot of oldies music which just takes you to a whole other time. The prices for breakfast were great for the amount of food you get. We spent mothers day there this year and were very satisfied all around.
We made reservations for the District before going to see Hamilton at the Hobby Center on a Saturday night. We’re not from Houston, so we wanted to try something downtown relatively close to the show. Service was terrible. It took about 40 minutes to get our drinks, and the food took quite some time. The place was not busy. We were one of only a few tables taken in the restaurant. The food was good, but not so good to make up for the service. We were hoping to get dessert, but there just wasn’t time before the show. Also, the ambience wasn’t great. It felt more like a fast casual restaurant than somewhere that cost ~$100 for the two of us.
Maybe it was an off night for the staff, but it will be enough to convince us to dine elsewhere when we’re downtown.
Food was prepared incorrectly, sent back, and returned worse. Service was abysmal; management was obnoxious and belligerent. Would not recommend this place to anyone.
Like the offerings. Everyone was able to find something to fit their taste
friendly staff and nice outdoor seating
oyster shots were great and shrimp and grits are definitely worth trying - order to share if you have a small appetite like me
Absolutely ridiculous. Was there for almost an hour and never got served (not even a glass of water). We had to walk out...
Was very disappointment in total waited 2-3 minutes until I asked someone if we could have a seat? Not enough waiters, food took a long time to be services even thought I only had 3 tacos and my boyfriend had grits and shrimp. The mimosa was flat not good at all. We had plans to go back if the food was great but not now.
Unfortunately disappointing. Not crowded but service was poor not just for us but other tables as well. We ordered simple dishes, the house burger and pizza. While the burger was decent the pizza looked like it had been sitting for a while and was simply not fresh or very good. Shame because the location has great potential.
Terrible service! We gave ourselves two hours before the symphony and barely made it in time. There were 8 of us, however, there was only one other table with two people in the whole restaurant. Our drink order took over 30 minutes with one taking nearly an hour.... I don’t write reviews, and don’t like writing negatives without giving a positive, but our experience leaves nothing positive in my memory.
We placed our order for lunch (two salads) and had to leave for business commitments after waiting over 45 minutes with no food in sight. The staff was very apologetic, but the promised food never came. Restaurant was half full, so the reason for the delay was unclear. Other tables were also without food for a long period.
Our waitress was very rude and short to the point where I thought it was one of those restaurants with a gimmicky theme of mean service. Another waitress basically came over and took care of us for the important things ie making sure we got the food we ordered and taking drink orders. Our waitress basically came for the initial drink orders, to let us know she was our waitress, and at the very end after previously mentioned other waitress told her we needed our checks. Btw, no need for a reservation as there at no hostesses. You pick your own seating.
We always enjoy sitting at the bar eating appetizers. We get great service from the bartenders.
The apple pear crumb is an amazing dessert
Empty restaurant with long waits for food and poor quality meal
The District is a great lunch in the downtown area - they were also very accommodating when two friends joined us half-way through lunch and got them fed on short notice. The burgers are quite good, and the atmosphere is very comfortable. Especially in the outdoor seating.
Excellent service from Lucinda.
Great place to stop for lunch and catch up. Definitely recommend
Great lunch spot for business lunch. Salads are big and filling.
Food was tasty but very dry ( short rib and veggie burger). The restaurant had an AWFUL smell like mold or mildew which was very distracting.
The place wasn't busy, yet our server seemed MIA and slow for most of our meal. Even though we told her when they brought the entrees that we needed the check as well since we had to leave, we still had to chase her down. The food was ok, better for lunch. My friend's ahi sandwich seemed very disappointing. A lot of bread, little ahi, and the remoulade was flavorless. The rest of the dishes were good, but not memorable.
From making reservations online to showing up at the restaurant on a Friday night at 7:30 with hardly anyone there and a seat yourself sign while the hostess sat at the back we should have known something was wrong. The waiter ignored us for the first ten minutes and didn’t bring menus until another group had come in and he took them menus first even though he had walked by us shortly after we had chosen a table. We ordered the pork oso buco, braised beef Mac and cheese, and a burger. The pork oso buco was supposed to come with a truffle risotto, instead it came with a white rice with truffle oil which did not meet the expectations of a risotto. It did not appear to be or have the texture of arborio rice which is standard of risotto. The Mac and cheese didn’t taste very cheesey but the meat was better than the pork in the oso buco which was bland. The burger was fine but nothing special. Overall, all of the food needed more spices. We also had ordered drinks, neither beer was offered a cold glass and we were left with the bottle and can that they came in, while the red wine was served in a cold glass and felt like the wine itself had come from a fridge. We will not be eating here again, and would not recommend it to others.
