Got greens and burger. The latter cooked right for medium well. Meat well seasoned.
Blue cheese dressing lacked the taste you'd expect but was ok.
Nice ambience as it was an outlet at the Sheraton.
Overall good and it was a short walk from the convention center.

Went before our Symphony concert. Will be returning. Lovely environment and great food. We had mesquite chicken and short ribs. Both were excellent. Fresh, hot, very enjoyable and well presented. Extensive wine list for bottles but glasses were too dominated by California selections. They did have a great Washington Malbec though.

Our first at the District. The look is great, the food was very good. The only issue we had was a snooty hostess who was visibly, not verbally, miffed that we requested to be re- seated away from kitchen door in a 1/2 full restaurant. Great place we'll come back.

I was surprised by how good the food was since a lot of hotel-associated restaurants in the US are not that great. This was very good. The service was excellent and I enjoyed sitting on the outdoor patio too. Had the chef's special, which delicious and the bacon wrapped dates that were also yummy. Two thumbs up!

Service was poor.. Poorly trained/inexperienced staff. Waiter opened our bottle of wine (struggling until he realized it had s cork) then dumped it all into our 4 glasses before we could stop him.
Pacific Halibut was approximately 2 ounces and cooked to death

In the hotel for convention, didn’t feel the need to go search for a “destination” restaurant. Surprised and pleased to find a gem right here in the hotel.
Easy to reserve-line busy, directed to Open Table, no problem. Had 3 dinners, and for each, seated right on time. Restaurant busy but not overcrowded. Service excellent(thank you, Ryan).
Decent wine list, many available by the glass. Small but varied list of craft beers (according to beer drinker in the party)
Meals were as advertised-American comfort food with an imaginative twist. (Arizona Benedict!) We had both standard menu choices and nightly specials, and none disappointed. Food was well-cooked and attractively presented, with generous portions. The menu isn’t huge, but there’s something for everyone, even vegan. I made a point to order items that were mentioned in website recommendations. They were correct.
Warm rolls and butter are brought immediately with water. The only item we didn’t like was the butter-it has honey or syrup in it. Sorry, sweet stuff on bread belongs at breakfast, not dinner.
Prices are reasonable for a large metropolitan hotel restaurant. Nightly special is priced close to standard menu items.
The noise level is a bit high if the restaurant is busy (there is an adjoining bar that also serves food), but there is outdoor seating if weather allows.
Overall, this restaurant is an excellent choice for hotel guests who don’t want to run all over looking for a meal. It’s also a good choice to come in for a date or other special occasion.

I'm surprised the only mashed potatoes you can get are sweet potatoes. You should be able to get mashed potatoes IMO. And the cotton candy at the end was weird. I could understand it if you had kids at the table but none of the adults want to get their fingers sticky, and it was an adult dinner. The service was great and thevdinners were good but not anything I would go back for. I think this would be a great place for a business-type lunch but not for a romantic dinner. There were lots of families there (could have been because of downtown events or that it is the restaurant in a hotel). It's a decent place but I would only go back for business lunches.

The $22 menu is an excellent option for people on an expense account who wish to "stay in" for dinner.
I had the catfish and it was very tasty. My dining companions had the smoked chicken and the salmon. They enjoyed their meals.

A disappointing experience. We waited 30 minutes to be seated for our reservation because they didn’t have enough menus. The service was absurdly slow. The food was lackluster, sloppily presented, and it seemed as though they were possibly running out of ingredients for the dishes. Our table had a variety of cocktails which were acceptable but forgettable. Overall, didn’t live up to the hype, and won’t be going back.

Had lunch on a weekday and the food was amazing and the price was even better ( $9 per plate) I got salmon and hubby got the beef tacos and they were both really good. We were going to have dessert but they brought us the check before we could even ask so we went somewhere else for that

My wife and I were in Phoenix celebrating our 33rd anniversary. We looked online for a nearby nice restaurant, and luckily found District. The food was excellent, and the "$22 for you" menu made it reasonable. I had the Kurobuta Pork Chops, and my wife had the Cedar Roasted Salmon. Both were fantastic!

Our only disappointment was the "Black Forest Cheesecake" we ordered to go for dessert. That was not a nice piece of cheesecake as we had expected - it was just like a pre-packaged bundt-style cake that is available at many restaurants. We were severely disappointed.
