    Great craft beer list, it was busy for a playoff game so the service wasn’t great

    This is more of a sports bar than a restaurant or first date bar. Tv monitors everywhere and loud music. Hard to have a conversation unless you yell. There was a group of six guys with extremely loud voices adding to the din. Food was passable, drinks were small.

    Great place to watch sports and have a drink. The food is mediocre at best. Took a long time get food and our appetizers came out with mains. Wings were not good and everything else was sub par. Not sure how anyone have good ratings for food here. Still, nice local hangout.

    We never ate nor drank there. My friend was already there when I showed up. The place was like a huge frat house party, with very loud music and sports playing on tv screens. So we left.

    Nice place to eat, service is definitely lacking with servers primarily focused on the bar and drinks customers rather than the sit down food seeking customers.

    I had the veggie burger, which was my first and it was quite delicious. The service was impeccable, really nice atmosphere, easy to get to, and a great spot if you're interested in drinks.

    Food was fantastic every single dish was really delicious for the casual ambience. Surprising Michelin flavors at a average bar. Very good we will go back.

    We had the Hummus, Peppers and Speck for appetizers. The Hummus was REALLY GOOD and a generous portion. I'm not fond of peppers and was surprised to just get a large plate of peppers, but they were really really good! The Speck I could of skipped, they were like large strips of Bacon, but that is just my taste. For dinner we had the Lahmajun and Lamb Tagine. Both were perfect and very large portions for "small plates" . The waitress was very attentive and service was great! Overall, very good meal for the price and loved the atmosphere. Love the new place and I'll be back!

    Non-traditional tapas. The best, Duck confit, recommended by our server, was perfection; Brussel sprouts- outrageously tasty and Maitake mushroom-a small portion given the price but delicious.

    Have been to all of the District venues and have never been disappointed. Food here is great and bartender's special tonic for my G&T added a special taste. Liked it a lot. This one has a very different vibe. Was a Sunday afternoon. Will have to visit during the week to check out the noise level.
