    Great experience. Dinner was fresh and delicious. Dessert was also very good. We visit Saratoga every fall and this is at the top of our list to visit when we return. We wish this new restaurant the best of success and hope to see it thrive for many years to come.

    Was just passing through and saw this on Open Table. Good food, great ambience. Live musician was fantastic. They’re still waiting on their liquor license, so it’s BYOB at the moment. Would definitely return if I’m in the area again.

    Excellent! The food is as phenomenal, the entertainment was wonderful, service was impeccable and the owner took the time to check on us several times and even take us on a tour of the space on the second level during a busy Saturday night. Can’t wait to go back!

    We were not offered the patio on the side, we thought all the outside seating was just in the front. For the restaurant to be that empty service could have been much better. The main meal was fine the dessert was missing an ingredient shown on the picture.

    No liquor license yet, so it’s bring your own, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Service and friendly staff more than make up for it.

    Food and service were excellent in spite of the fact that they were short staffed that night. Most of us had the pork chop with crispy chickpeas and artichoke hearts - outstanding! Everyone in our group enjoyed their meals. Highly recommend!!

    Entirely happy with my experience at The District. Happy to support a fairly new establishment in Saratoga, the menu is a great balance of traditional, sophisticated, with just enough spin on classic to be fresh. Would happily go again, next time I am in town. Food was delivered quickly, expertly executed, and professionally presented.

    Very good experience. The salmon with beurre blanc was wonderful atop fresh spinach and warm hummus with a few crunchy chickpeas, a surprisingly nice match. My spouse’s pork chop was moist and nicely presented. We’d go back for sure. For now, it is BYOB, which was fine. A little bread might’ve been nice.

    New restaurant but has all the issues worked out. Food was excellent and fresh. Staff and owner very friendly and accommodating. Only "issue" was they don't have liquor license yet but can bring your own so actually may be a positive. Will definitely be back.

    Absolutely spectacular service. The owner made sure to walk around to the tables and ask how the food was. I also saw him personally Bussing tables, something which means a lot and shows his staff he isn’t willing to ask them to do anything he wouldn’t. The food was incredible—I have never had meringue the way it came, almost like a pie crust. If you haven’t checked this place out, I would make it a point.

    Found The District by chance while browsing OpenTable. Currently BYOB while they wait for their liquor license, this hidden gem is a welcome addition to the Saratoga dining scene. Great ambiance, attentive service, and a focused menu. We enjoyed Bluepoint oysters, burrata with figs, prosciutto, and arugula, risotto with crispy chickpeas, and an absolutely melt in your mouth strip steak with salsa verde that you could cut with a fork. Skip the crowds and tired mainstays on Broadway and enjoy a fantastic meal at The District. Can't wait to go back!

    This place is a must try. Amazing service and ridiculously good food. My husband and I had the chicken wings, pork chop and airline chicken. They were all delicious and the atmosphere at the restaurant was fabulous. We sat outside but also got a tour from the owner of the inside which was beautiful. This restaurant has only been open a short time and I anticipate big things are still to come. Visit while you can enjoy all the amenities of this place without the Saratoga summertime crowds. You’ll be glad you did.

    We shared the mussels (unique prep, delicious, wanted more) and the burrata/arugula salad (yum.) Then the airline chicken and the salmon (both very good.) Service attentive and accommodating. Very quiet as it is new and not many people there when we were. We'll go again and try some of the other dishes.

    Unfortunately only one dish out of five was acceptable. We ate because we were hungry. Prices were way too steep for the quality/taste of food served. We eat out a lot and were expecting the industry “standard”. Being a newly opened restaurant, the chef still has a long way to go. I say to our gracious owner/host - taste the food before serving to your patrons! Great vibe though - best of luck !
