    The restaurant was not busy and we sat outside. Nice selection of beer on tap. The Caesar salad and Vietnamese salad were both very good. Portions are generally individual-sized. Pizza nicely cooked, maybe could have been just a touch longer for a crispier crust but still tasty.

    Sunday 4pm reservation 05/21/23. Picked this restaurant b/c their desserts look amazing. However they were sold of 3 of the 5 desserts on the menu. Total bummer. Staff was great. Side salad was just a pile of mixed greens with dressing. Nothing else. Just lettuce. No flavor to the salt n vinegar fries.

    Very happy there is a patio dining area. An element to create more division from the parking lot would be nice. Shrubs, lattice, etc. The food and cocktails were absolutely delicious!

    I enjoyed the selection of brunch menu items though I thought the price per person was rather steep. Would've liked to see an omelet station for those kinds of prices. Maybe next year?

    We enjoyed the various menu items: individual pizza, BLT Sheppard pie fries beer and coffee. Our server was very pleasant and helpful. We were part of the poetry event that went well but the room was very noisy and one group of six didn’t respect the poets. All in all a nice experience

    Despite it not being busy at all, our server was pretty slow coming to take our drink & appetizer orders & did not keep up with our drink orders & the food seemed to take a very long time to come out of the kitchen. The food was very tasty & the portions very hearty. Parking was a bit difficult. I know people park there to go to Polar Park. However, these things were not a deal breaker. We will go back.

    Attended the Easter brunch with my family the food was decent expect for it being bland, cold and not freshly prepared. Our service was the worst part by far as we were waiting for our check for 45 minutes and there was only 6 tables in the entire resturant that were sat. I may return but am unsure.

    I wouldn't go back. First 2 beers I ordered they were out of. 3rd choice came and it was flat. Waiter said they've been having this issue I asked 2 questions about the menu, waiters answer to both was "I don't know". One was "what is X" it was a menu item I was unfamiliar with, apparently so was he. Our wings came out, we had no appetizer plates so I asked the lady who brought out the wings for plates, she said sure she'd be right back. 3 minutes later I said forget it I'll get them myself. At that point she did come back, but not with plates, with our entrees. Never brought what I asked for and the waiter walked by saw this and then just B lined in another direction. Came way later to see how things were going. They weren't going well but whatever at that point. We saw the guy 2x from order to check, the 3rd was to drop the check. Just terrible all around, the only bright side was the chicken BLT was good. Salmon dish not so much. Quite possibly the only time every possible aspect of a dinner I had was fumbled. Don't go here unless it's to sit at the bar and drink flat beer.

    Great place to grab a bite to eat before the game. You can park there for the game. Easy walk to the ballpark but they have the golf cart if you want a ride. The sausage and pepper and onion pizza was delicious.

    We ate at The District on a Saturday evening. First, there is plenty parking next to the restaurant, which is a bonus given my experience in Worcester. We were greeted and taken to our table in the back room as soon as we arrived. We were given just the right amount of time to review the menu and make our drink and dinner selections. My Old Fashioned was as good as the best I've ever had (not too sweet). We ordered soup/bisque, appetizers and main dishes. The food was absolutely outstanding. The only negative was all of our courses were delivered at the same time which made for a very crowded table. On the other hand, the waiter was friendly and did check in with us periodically. He may have been a new employee. The bottom line is that I would definitely recommend The District and we will be going there again.

    Went for Worcester restaurant week. Had the fish and chips and the shepherds pie. Both really tasty. The blueberry lemon drop martini was also really good. Great service. It was quiet when we were there, but it wasn't full, so not sure how loud it would be if all the tables were used

    We ordered appetizers within the first 10 minutes of arriving, while waiting for the rest of our party to join us, and it took 50 minutes to serve us - I actually think they forgot. It did not “appear” busy when we were there, but service was really slow and we had to rush to end our dinner to make it to the DCU for our event. Food was “okay”, in line with a 99 Restaurant. And did I say our appetizers were like warm? I wouldn’t return to this restaurant.

    Food was great. Waitress was attentive. Just seemed a bit disjointed. The water is served in plastic cups but the food is quite elevated. I guess a better way to say it is the atmosphere is pub-like while the entree’s are practically fine-dining. The cocktails are also unique.

    I thought this place was very nice despite a few issues. I decided to try it because I knew the entertainment that was going to play from 6 to 9. There isn't really anywhere for any kind of stage so he was just sort of next to the bar. It was somewhat difficult to hear since everyone tends to talk louder to be heard over the music - which makes everyone talk louder still, and so on. I'm not detracting for any of that - it's not a concert after all - just commenting. The food and drinks were good and everyone in our party enjoyed their choice. The waiter forgot to put our order in so it took a bit longer than it probably should have to get our food but we weren't in a hurry so no harm. Then, when she was picking up our plates, she dumped a container of ketchup on my lap - oops. She apologized profusely of course and brought soda water and napkins. Again, accidents happen and it wasn't the end of the world. Would have liked to see more vegan/vegetarian options on the menu I suppose. All in all, I would recommend.

    What a great experience! Service by Bella was outstanding! We were first brought to the 2nd room and asked to be seated in the main dining area. The vibe was fun and lively. Live music was great, lots of tvs to watch games. Menu is upscale bar food. We had the mozzarella appetizer and the Cesar pizza and grilled cheese with tomato bisque. We enjoyed everything we ordered. We will go back!

    A very good selection of comfort food like Shepherd’s Pie or Sloppy Joes. The quality is very good too. The only downside is that their versions of comfort food, while good, do not remind us of their comfort food origins. For example, the Sloppy Joe does not taste like a Sloppy Joe. The Shepherd’s Pie while good, does not taste like a Shepherd’s Pie. Service is nice but we often found ourselves wanting water or refills on drinks with no waitress available. One other thing. They need to change how they serve their Sloppy Joe. They used a Fries Basket holder with a paper bottom. Yes their Sloppy Joe was sloppy and it spilled over into the paper. The paper got soggy and spilled over onto the table. Why not just give us a plate? We had to ask for a plate.
