I give a big shoutout to waitress Tracie!! Such an amazing experiences we’ve had with her. The hostess whom I don’t know her name is such a nice lady as well. She always welcomes us back since we’ve been going for the past 3 weekends in a row.

Very average food despite smallish menu. If you don’t have a massive selection then you should be able to execute each item well.
Chicharron were bland, but jalapeño dipping sauce was highlight of the whole meal.
Pork belly underwhelming.
Brisket dry and uninspiring.
Coleslaw overly sweet.
Kimchi rice was a disaster. Wet, bland rice with vaguely spiced boiled cabbage.
We won’t be returning.

The food was really really good. Our waiter did not really know the menu well. The vegetables we ordered were not at all what we were told. Did not really know how many ribs were on the whole and 1/2 rack. Again, Food was great though.

Since I stay at the Sheraton often I like that this is close.......but I so wish the ‘dinner’ food was better. How can they screw up mashed potatoes?

I’m sorry to say ——I won’t be back....too many other choices nearby

Stopped in for a work lunch with 8 people. The portions were sizable but the food was not as good as it sounded. We found the dishes to be lacking flavor. The servers were friendly and attentive.

We went to District with friends and overall had a great time. Unknowingly we came during happy hour and it was great. They have one cocktail on this menu and it was a good one. We were able to get LA tacos, BBQ chicken quesadilla, and Duck fat fries as appetizers for $23. Did I mention this is happy hour on a Saturday! We then moved in to dinner which my husband and I shared because the apps were so filling. We had the Korean glazed smoke chili pork belly, chorizo Mac and cheese (up charge to swap with regular Mac and cheese), and kimchi fried rice. The pork belly cooked have been cooked up a little more crispy on the outside but it was still good. We also had an order of the jalapeño corn bread. This was delicious a must have in my opinion. The little issue we had was that the waitress forgot to add a couple of items to our apps order. She was very apologetic and actually took it off our order. The atmosphere was cool and trendy not over crowded but we were there kinda early. We loved this place we would totally come back.

Food was delicious, service was pleasant. We went at lunch, and the room was very quiet, but I imagine it might be louder and more lively with a bigger crowd at a busier time.

Very odd table bussing. Instead of someone coming and taking plates away, a woman pushes a big Rubbermaid bucket on a roller up to your table and puts plates into it, directly from the table. As a result of this arrangement, she pushed that bucket of dirty dishes past our table about five times during our meal. This really erodes the premium feel they are trying to project here. Food was good, cocktails good. But the ambiance was lacking and didn’t seem as upscale as it wants to be.

Good food, good service, lively ambiance. One member of our party of 5 said she had a hard time hearing the conversation, so next time we'll ask for a booth in the corner. Those of us trying to cut carbs did note that the "roasted vegetables" our waiter said would be green vegetables actually contained mostly potatoes.

A friend and I stayed at the Sheraton Grande for a girls weekend away. It was her birthday. We ate dinner at the District and the food and service couldn't be better. The waiter was very attentive and gave us great advice as to what to order. I had the brisket which was so tender it cut with a fork. My friend had the salmon which she thoroughly enjoyed. The sweet potato fries were terrific. Then the waiter brought us an incredible flourless chocolate cake, free of charge, for my friend's birthday. It was decadent and so good.

We also had breakfast there the following morning. The food was again great and the waitress was incredible. She refilled coffee often and even asked if we wanted a cup to go when we left.

I highly recommend this restaurant.

I guess I didn't really get it. Food was served on fairly deep white trays rather than plates. Felt like a school meal where someone forgot to use a plate. Service was a little over-the-top. Being asked "May I?” Every time something was picked up or put down just seemed pretty pretentious and unnecessary. We also didn't particularly like being called 'young man’ and 'young lady’ when we were at least same age as the server if not older. My wife did think the Salmon tasted really good but she didn't each much of the accompaniments. I had half chicken which leaked grease into the tray and tasted of nothing. The whipped potatoes and roasted vegetables in their own little dishes would have fed a hamster. Apparently the steak (NY Strip) tasted good but it was tiny. The cauliflower was okay but really something and nothing. The bread and butter pudding dessert was good though and so was the NY Cheesecake. My wife ordered the chocolate torte but couldn't eat it as she has a nut allergy and it seemed that it may have had nuts in - we weren't confident and so she left it. No-one came back to check it was alright until the bill was brought despite the fact I hadn't asked for it. We had breakfast in the same place the next morning (we were staying in the hotel) and it was pretty good tbh. I would not make another trip there though.

Not sure if it's because it's in a mall in DTLA, but this place should be a lot more crowded. Excellent food, excellent service and very cool atmosphere. Highly recommended.

Would NOT recommend. The food selections were very limited. We were there at 6pm on a Saturday night and they were already out several of the food items.

I felt sorry for the food servers. they were very good but even their good service couldn’t make up for the really limited menu and the poor Quality of the food. It’s truly amazing that this is the restaurant that is in the Sheridan hotel because it really is not of the quality that you would expect in a Sheraton Hotel

The service was very good and our waitress, Brittany, was particularly friendly, charming and solicitous. But the food overall was a big disappointment. While the fries were perfectly salted and crispy, the kale cobb salad was underdressed and hard to eat, due to the giant-sized kale leaves stuffed into a too-small bowl. Every time I tried to cut and make a forkful, the kale leaves would spring out and shoot bits of dressing or various cobb toppings in every direction. The kitchen clearly does not know how to work with kale (a shocker in 2019 SoCal, no? ), as the staff put whole kale leaves in the bowl. The hard, chewy spines should be removed from each leaf and the remainder of each leave should be cut into more manageable, ideally bite-sized pieces. So maybe if the kale itself hadn't been such a tussle and a struggle to deal with, the salad would have been OK. But again very underdressed and also the shredded chicken was dry and stringy. I'd try District again, but only for convenience - it's not a food destination.

After confirming by phone in advance that gluten free dining could be accommodating and making a reservation to dine before a Laker’s game, was told that dinner menu was not available until 5, that my reservation should not have been possible, and that gluten free was “hard.” What a joke.

It was our 6th wedding anniversary and we wanted to do something not too fancy but not too casual either. I think the District hit the mark. It was our first time here. The ambiance was great nice and quiet. The food was good. My husband had the pulled pork sandwich and he loved it. I tried the butternut squash bisque and I enjoyed it. I also the ribs and they were just ok...a little too dry for my taste and a little bland. The mashed potatoes were good but the coleslaw wasn’t that great. But overall I didn’t hate it. The service was very slow, they only had 2 waiters. The place wasn’t that busy but they had a big party which made our server take longer to get to us but she was very apologetic and treated it us really good. We did have somebody come to us,maybe the manager, and apologizing and made sure we had our drinks promptly. I had the beetnik( I think that is what is what called) it was delicious to me. Overall I had a really good time. Staff was really nice congratulating us on our anniversary and we had a free dessert, a cheesecake and it was very good. I wasn’t disappointed.

We came for a family birthday and the service and attention made us all feel so special. Everyone from the hostess, the gentleman making sure our water glasses were always filled, and the waitress and waiter, were warm and attentive. We will certainly be back. Thank you all so much for helping make our night so lovely!!!!
