The District by Hannah An Ratings and Reviews
Went for lunch. It was surprisingly empty, which makes me a little worried about the business. They still provided bottomless mimosas, and the server was very attentive about refilling our glasses. We ordered the handmade noodles with chicken, breakfast flatbread, and kimchi fried rice. The noodles and flatbread were fantastic, really tasty. The only thing we didn't like was the kimchi fried rice. The rice grains were a little too hard, and it lacked flavor. Had a good time there overall, would return, especially for the bottomless guava mimosas.
My wife and I had an early Valentines dinner reservation for 6pm. I'll be brief. This was a bad experience due mostly to poor service and mediocre food at exorbitant prices. After an hour of missteps by the waitstaff, we were left with one final insult. On top of the overpriced ($99 per person) meal, a 20% gratuity was automatically added to our bill.
They use butter in most dishes but it doesn’t say it on the menu. Heads-up for those with dairy intolerances and more.
When we found out the kim Chi rice had butter, one waiter took it back saying he would take it off the tab. Then our waiter brings butter-free kim chi rice that we no longer expected nor could enjoy. Communication between staff on a very quiet night was disappointingly lacking.
Service was bad. I order kimchi fried rice add chicken $4.00 more. Whey I got order, I don’t see chicken at all. I told my server, she said It was chicken cube in there, me and my husband dig in again still don’t see it. End up she went to kitchen and came back with 2 chicken sticks and said this is different chicken in that fried rice. We know what chicken look like.
Worst service I have had in a long time. We never saw our server after he took our order until we were paying. I had to order refills and dessert with the bussers sjnce we were never checked on. Dessert took over 20 min to come out. Food was good but service unfortunately ruined the experience. Doubtful that we will return
Went here as part of DineLA. The tuna poke app was promising(nice portion, tasty), then it all went downhill. My noodles were so sugary sweet and the lemongrass chicken skewers were tiny. The three of them put together was maybe 1/2 a chicken breast. My friend very much disliked her salmon kale salad. She said the dressing(in which her salad was swimming) was weirdly sweet and the piece of salmon was literally half the size of a post it. The dessert was chocolate mousse. It was super dry and dense. It was like it was old and exposed to air.
The ambiance is nice. Our server was great and friendly.
Maybe we just ordered the wrong things, but I feel like the whole point of DineLA is to entice you to come back as a regular. I've done that with a bunch of places I've sampled via DineLA. Unfortunately, based on this experience, I'd never want to chance it again.
We were very very disappointed ... & considered this as a 'lesson learned'!!! We knew that it was going to be pricey for 'Vietnamese Food' since it's part of the An Family chain ... however, the food quality did not have the WOW factor for them to command such high prices. Their other restaurant, Crustaceans, is pricey also for what they serve, but they do have a coy pond and have a beautiful ambiance, which could make up for the overpriced dishes they serve. But not only was The District a dull & dreary restaurant, their food was dull & dreary as well. If anyone thinks they can't get the same type of Garlic Noodles any where else but from the An chain restaurants ... they are soooo wrong! You can have the same Noodles, if not better, at the Kicking Crab in Rowland heights for just $10. We went to the District to atleast sample the other fusion dishes they had ... but we absolutely over paid for tiny, I mean tiny crab legs, that it was an insult to serve such portions. There are so many other (negative) things I want to comment on this place ... but I'm just going to have to chalk it up that for this type of food ... please ... there are far more better Vietnamese fusion restaurants in LA/OC ... we just hoped they had dishes that had the 'upmth' factor even tho' their restaurant is dark & wooded-cabin like .. but no ... nothing special ... and such a WASTE OF HARD EARNED MONEY !!!
this is our new fave place. its the first time we ate there. i loved the ambiance, the service was good. they’re accomodating & friendly but not always in your face which i like. if you’re gonna eat there try their grilled crab appetizer & the lobster with noodle that one is the bomb!! we’ll go back again soon
Two Australians on holiday with limited time in LA, decided to go here for a nice dinner. When we arrived we overheard the waiter apologising for a mix up to the couple next to us (everyone is entitled to make mix up right?...) We cut the waiter some slack and he took our order. An hour went by and we were served a dish we didn’t order. When the plate was put down we advised it wasn’t what we had ordered, he agreed, left the dish there and was went to check on our meals with the kitchen, to discover our meals were not only not made they couldn’t remember what we ordered and had to ask us again. We were apologised to and told we would get a free drink to componensate, however the waiter went off then came back and had to ask again what we were drinking. I watched whilst he was made my drink from a distance and saw he put a straw in it and tasted it, when I received the drink it wasn’t even what I had ordered. Whilst we were waiting for our meals a new group entered and who I believe to be the manager asked the couple next to us to get up and move chairs to make room for the new group (the same couple who had issues with receiving the wrong meals. ) The new group overheard our waiter apologising for the mix ups we were having, and just like us they shrugged their shoulders and said ‘it happens’ and gave them the benefit of the doubt. They ordered their drinks and about 30 mins later they still didn’t have them, the waiter came out with one of our meals and I started to eat as by this stage I was starving. The other meal came out about 20 mins later so we both ate seperately. By this stage the group next to us we’re getting fed up and the waiter had to ask them again what drinks they had ordered. I don’t know if they were short staffed (it didn’t appear to be overly busy maybe 5 tables to attend to) or just having a really bad night but we were so disappointed, particularly because we chose to go here over some A-List restaurants.
First time but not the last time! Five of us (four having been born and raised in Saigon) had a great dinner. Ask for James M as your waiter and request that he make suggestions. Everything was our favorite - noodles, short ribs, grilled octopus, etc. Sat in front outdoor area and everything was great. We'll be back!
Poor service, quality of some of the food was questionable. When I bite into the candied shrimp appetizer, the shrimp was mushy- alluding to shrimp that went bad but was disguised with sauce and a skewer... my husband’s espresso was actually 1/2 of a lukewarm coffee, not espresso. We asked for a replacement and a real espresso was presented. I would not go back. We paid $18 for 5 small shrimp on a skewer smothered in sauce...
The food is really good. We had the noodles with dungeness crab and the sea bass both were excellent. Although the crab meat appeared too oily. For dessert, we had the bread pudding. It was excellent. Our waiter was James. He is top, top, top. James is always on point with his recommendations and service.
Most Vietnamese restaurants in LA are holes in the wall with good food. The District is an elegant venue with great food at a somewhat higher price for many entrees but competitive pricing for standard dishes like their excellent pho and banh mi. Their misspelling of the capital of Belgium, BrusselS with an S, in the menu listing of their scrumptious sprouts is my only complaint.
The ambience and the service was excellent. Jennifer make sure you are well taken care of. The only down thing is that the quality of the food was not matching the ambience. Probably because as an asian, got used to the asian flavor thats why making these dishes feel not authetic enough. Nevertheless, good dining experience!
