Waitress was amazing. We had 2 happy hour hors d’oeurves - crawfish hush puppies and roasted Brussels and then split the mahi mahi tostadas (2) which we very tasty and huge!
No waiting for a table for brunch. Austin served our drinks but our table obviously was not assigned to his section. We quickly had another wait staff take our food order. Great brunch and lunch options, good presentation, tasted wonderful..... shrimp and grits were awesome (minus the egg). Big breakfast was very good. Great Bloody Mary too. I just hope our waitress was having a better afternoon than she did morning. Go for the food... it was awesome.
Restaurant was early empty except one large table of ladies who were so loud, that we had to ask to be moved to Cellar 7. The space in Cellar 7 was dirty. Looked as if the staff was prolonging to getting the tables cleared and space set back up.
We had reservations for 8:45pm on Valentine’s Day. We arrived about 20 minutes early in hopes to have a few drinks at the bar. We were seated at a brightly lit, oddly placed bar & left alone for about 10 minutes. A server finally came over & handed us menus & proceeded to explain the specials. We politely stopped him & told him that we were just sitting wanting for a drink until our reserved table was ready. He left & never came back. Another employee came about 10 more minutes later & took us to a table. We sat down but soon realized the table they had seated us at was still dirty from the patrons before us. I had sat my purse on the table before I realized it was dirty. It had some sort of sauce on the bottom of it from the table. My husband & I were both very disappointed & more put off by the moment. We discussed it for a few minutes & decided to just quietly excuse ourselves. We walked a couple of blocks & got seated at the bar at Morton’s Steakhouse where we also enjoyed dinner. We had a great experience there. I can’t say the same for The District. The service, bar, timeliness & cleanliness of The District were all very disappointing!
It was just an ok experience for me. Went there for Valentines day, had an 8:15pm reservation, and I arrived at 8:13pm, they didn't have a table for us, so they sat us at a community table, then when a table came open, they gave it to a couple that showed up late but had a 8pm reservation. I thought that was odd. But we ended up getting seated just before 8:30p. Service was ok, I had to get up and get my own water twice. Food was decent. I think maybe it was a bad night. Food and environment was worth giving them a 2nd try.
Food is tasteless, terrible, overpriced. Were out of several beers on the menu, served us hot champagne. Couldn’t believe this place was still in business.
That place is Nice and they have a good Menu but one of their big items on the Menu are the Oysters and they didn’t have them available in Valentines day, I also notice my server was attending my table and another table all the way across the restaurant, that makes her work very hard because they can’t keep up with their customers and as a result as you end up getting poor service, in my opinion the problem is the management making bad decisions, the food was good and the restaurant has a great vibe and a awesome view.
Decent food, they messed up three times on my girlfriends order: gave her crab cakes when she wanted a salad, her steak was cold and the asparagus was way over cooked, and then gave her the wrong dessert
Mentioned that it was my wife’s birthday and anniversary for the reservation. The reservation was not available so we waited in the bar area then no mention of birthday or anniversary and then the oysters that we ordered never came, didn’t find out until the end of the meal that they were out of oysters. The young man who waited on us was nice and worked hard to keep us happy but was seemingly trying to deal with poor management both in the kitchen and on the floor.
This was our first visit to The District as we are trying as many downtown restaurants with friends. This was Super Bowl Sunday so very quiet and slow, but the waitstaff was very attentive and we all enjoyed our meals. The charcuterie appetizer was perfect for the four of us and I certainly enjoyed the paella but was more than I could eat and did not leave room to try dessert. Next time...
We made a reservation but it wasn’t necessary as you were free to pick your own seating. The food was very good-especially the oysters. Only downside is the parking which is basically non-existent.
We have always enjoyed the food and drink at The District. We just don't understand why they are always so few people there. The food is very good, service is so friendly, and it's in such a good location. We will continue to patronize The Dristrict.
The whole experience is best forgotten. While the restaurant did not seem to be busy - there were many empty tables - it was as if we were the last ones in on a night at peak capacity. The drinks were extremely slow in coming, and then came with a good ten minutes between those for one half of the table and the other. There was an equally long wait for the food. The appetizers we had ordered were forgotten and the mains came out, again with a delay between those for one half of table and the other. There seemed to be no willingness or capability on the part of staff to deal with these things, they were just accepted as unfortunate. The food was OK, the excellent fries offsetting some otherwise ordinary burgers. The Berkshire pork chop was delicious. The ambiance is a bit disappointing when not busy. The scraping of metal chairs on the bare concrete floors tends to echo.
Our server Dylan was GREAT. We ordered the gulf oysters on half shell, crab cake and salmon. It was wonderful. We will definitely be back.
ENJOYED the entire ambiance here. My FIRST time and definitely not my last time. BRUNCH was AWESOME and cost was reasonable!
We had two of the bruschetta; they were fine. I had the redfish tostada, which was pretty good. My husband had the redfish piccata, which was very good. We ate at The District before going to the Very Merry Pops concert; the proximity to the theater was the primary reason we chose it. I’d eat there before a concert again.
Everything OK but nothing great
It was decent. It’s a little loud and bathrooms had toilet paper for paper towels but overall, decent.
Two Christmas parties going on, not nearly enough staff. Very difficult to park.
We came here for Sunday brunch before The Nutcracker. The were accommodating of our time but did not rush us. The food was excellent and the recommended Tiffany Mimosas did not disappoint. We will be back again.
Made reservations via Open Table for Thanksgiving and upon arrival, the restaurant was CLOSED. Tried calling earlier in the day to confirm, but, no answer. We figured being a holiday, they must be busy, so, wasn't too concerned, as the site was still taking reservations and even their Facebook page showed open. No contact from the restaurant at all regarding the unfortunate event.
Couples dinner before a concert at Revention. Easy walk to/from. Food and service were excellent!!
Ordered small plates to share. Dishes had very little flavor & the food was cold! We were just one table of 3 in the whole restaurant, so no excuse for cold food.
Food was really enjoyable (tuna tartar wasn’t the best), drinks were good, cool looking place, but absolutely no one was there on a Friday night @ 8pm which made us wonder.
The service was extremely slow, which is shocking since we were literally the only people in the restaurant. Overall I think it would be a great place to brunch or lunch, but complete ghost town for dinner.
Truly enjoyed dinner at the district. Good food, reasonable service; friendly & attentive wait staff.
Great open view of downtown with the large window panes. We went for Houston Restaurant Weeks and the food was good. Server forgot about one of our desserts but they eventually brought it when we reminded them.
We had a nice dinner using the Houston Restaurant Weeks menu. Selections were cooked as ordered and service was very attentive.
Worst Eggs Benedict I have ever had. Slice of bread, spinach, a slice of cold sandwich ham, poached egg and something resembling curdled jelly that was supposed to be Hollandaise Sauce. Service was equally bad!
The waiter was very nice and personable, however the service was extremely slow! When we first got there there was only one other table and things still took forever. We went for HRW. Overall the food was good but not great. Ordered a fillet very rare that came out medium, but still had good flavor. Very long time in between courses. Bread pudding was tasty, the crime brûlée was not bruleed. The tartare was very good.
I would like to thank Bill our server and the manager for the great service and hospitality. I was able to host a lovely baby shower with their help. The mother-to-be was very impressed with the location, food, service and ambiance of the beautiful bar room. My and husband and I love dining at all the District locations but this location has provided the most excellent service. All the servers are wonderful!!
Overall good, would go again, but the service was just pretty slow for it not being very crowded. Took longer than expected to just have a server come to greet us and get drink orders
The food was great! We had 10 people and tried multiple appetizers, entrees, desserts, and drinks all was very good. The restaurant itself was lovely. Our server was super friendly but for being one of only three tables in the restaurant the service was slow. Make sure you have time but wnjoy all the menu has to offer in flavor.
Food was ok. Service was good. Overall, not good enough to fight traffic to get downtown though.
Very friendly server and restaurant. Great brunch options
Was very slow and quiet for Sunday Brunch. Given there were so few guests, the service was in fact slow.
Based on the menu, I was looking forward to trying this place before a play we were attending. It was Saturday, and the place was basically empty. Everything came out really fast. We started with the Calimari and Octopus - fishy and rubbery, and pretty much awful.
We ordered the Osso Buco and the Braised Short ribs as our main course. Both were bland, chewy, and had weird seasonings.
Then we went out on a limb and ordered desert. We had the Creme Brulee and the Banana nut cake - Both were fabulous, we loved them.
All and all, pretty disappointing, but with improvements in the food, it would be a great venue to hang out. Maybe their big crowd is the party kids late night. Not for my Wife and me.
Richard our waiter was outstanding. He was friendly, attentive and very helpful with the menu. Food was excellent and very reasonable.
Our service started out lacksidasical...but improved.. Food was good, but not exceptional. I didn't realize it was such a casual place. I will give it another try when I'm downtown again.
The food and service was amazing! I made a reservation shortly after my college graduation on a Saturday and we were greeted/seated right away. My parents loved their food. My friend enjoyed her mimosa and I LOVED my French toast! Whenever I'm back in Houston I will definitely be back!
