Disappointed that the food wasn't the quality we are used to at the District. Maybe it was just an off night for the kitchen.
The restaurants is a bit jammed... food is ok. We were not blown away. However, they accommodated us even though we were late for our reservation.
Great food and service...however if possible try to get a table away from the kitchen...unless you wish to hear the very loud banter from the head chef to the rest of his team...way to loud and interfered with out conversation.
Always some of the best food in the Lower Lonsdale area. Avoid the big flashy restaurants - this one is well worth the visit.
Over one hour for salad and soup. Go there if you like your time wasted.
Fun atmosphere with good food and microbrews. Like casual atmosphere. Our server was great. Tough place for serving staff as tables are close together. Happy to wait for food in an independent restaurant versus going to one of the big chain restaurants close by. Will try mussels next time as they looked great.
Had to wait too long for our check.
But other than that.. it was good experience.
The space is really cramped. Our server forgot multiple items and got our drink orders wrong. We had to ask three different servers for pepper. The steak was the ugliest, toughest steak I’ve ever had at a restaurant. It looked like a deformed piece of thick leather, with sinew and grizzle riddled throughout. Just awful.
The mussles are always excellent. Service was inconsistent and there is always something that they have run out of. This time it was a wine. Even though there is often an issue, I still enjoy this restaurant. Food and atmosphere are great.
On spec booking. Bustling great food. Tight seating but fits the set up. Open kitchen and lively.
The District is usually very good. Great selection on the menu and good service but it’s really disappointing when they don’t open the lower half because the atmosphere in the top half is horrible sitting right next to the door (freezing) and the kitchen (noisy). After our last brunch there I won’t be returning for brunch if the bottom half of the restaurant with the fireplaces isn’t open.
Nice place, always enjoyable
Gem in my neighborhood. I love everything about The District. It feels like once you walk in the door you are in the know . Our server eloquent explanation of specials and menu morsels piqued my palate. The kitchens care and creativity to my meal elevate each dish. The extensive BC wine list adds to the local feel.
One of my favourite spots in North Vancouver! Love the ambience and location, great place for a drink amd appies. Highly recommend!
We were excited to try District, a new restaurant for us. Our reserved table was ready on time, but as we sat down there were many disappointments. The tables are very close together allowing for little privacy for conversation. We were told promptly that none of the imported beers were available (one of the reasons we wanted to try the restaurant in the first place). Our appies were great, but for our mains both of us had chicken that was dry, old, and inedible. We sent the chicken back. They did remove this from our bill. With one beer each, two appies, and two salads with no protein our bill was $70. Certainly not a good value for the qualities and availability on the menu.
First time. Greeted immediately in a friendly manner. Choice of seating. Quick service. Excellent food! Fun atmosphere! Will come again!
Love the mussels and keep coming back for them. A good casual spot. We had a very personable server.
Nice food in lively surroundings. Server was attentive
We went for Sunday brunch and sat on the patio, in their newly expanded open air dining space. It was nice to be outside but the stools and table were cheap and uncomfortable.
Our table ordered breakfast bowls all around - big mistake!!
The breakfast bowls were described as a hearty breakfast mix with variety of components. But they were mainly a large quantity of fried potato mini-squares, that looked and tasted like the frozen hash browns you buy can buy at the supermarket. The additional components were less than a tablespoon! We left most of our dishes uneaten, as the potato was bland and a bit greasy. Not sure there is enough ketchup in the world to fix that situation, not that were offered any condiments anyway.
Not going back!
Great Happy Hour specials! Food was good - good variety.
