    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

    First time, last time. Service was very slow, so food left on warming shelf arrived cold. Kid’s chicken tenders overcooked, almost inedible. There are better restaurants in Worcester.

    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.

    Suffering from lack of employees. New Bartender and waiter both doing their best. They were both pleasant and working hard. Restaurant is spotless and ambiance is great. Only problem is the food. Sub par at best. Cold & Soggy fries as appetizers. Nachos were concession stand quality. Meat ball sandwich had 3 tiny meatballs, fried chicken sandwich was over fried in oil that probably needed to be changed, and fish sandwich smelt funky. Would go back for drinks but not to eat. Better choices in Worcester.

    The food was just okay and the service, especially bar service, was extremely slow. Do not recommend the nachos. Essentially just chips with a strange looking sauce on them. And the buffalo sauce on the chicken tenders seemed to be very watered down. The best thing we had was the basket of plain fries.

    Meals were good, good portion sizes as price. We would go back. I chose A higher noise level outside because of several fire truck and cruisers going through multiple times during dinner outside. But we had the most perfect 72 weather! Love the outdoor dining option.
