Food was very good. We loved the porky flat bread appetizer. All three dinners were gobbled up. Jordan our waitress was the best! Always good here, never a dissapointment.

this has been one of my favorite restaurants and I've been coming here every couple of weeks since they've opened. the guys is always amazing. i took a friend of mine that was visiting nyc last night. we had planned on a leisurely dinner starting with a few appetizers and going on to entrees later. we requested to order appetizers and then we'd place our entree order later. we were told we needed to place everything at once. throws a wrench at a leisurely dinner experience. instead of ordering 3 appetizers, we ordered one.

This was a super fun night out with the hubby! Place was very active - bar area was really noisy but the dining area was fine. I mention this because many reviews mention the noise level as being bothersome. No so in the dining area. Food was amazing - we ordered different appetizers. Very delicious and satisfying. Tried one of their specialties drinks called Good Medicine ( scotch based with honey ginger syrop and soda) YUMMY!!

We had a reservation and the table we ended up using was available, but the host/manager sensed our desire to sit and purposely kept us standing until the precise moment of our reservation. We stood for ten minutes because he chose to make a point when we said our entire party was ready to sit. When we realized it was the empty table that was our own, I decided I to write a negative review.

We made a reservation for my moms 55th birthday. We had plans to go to the Billy Joel concert directly afterward. We were sat at a quiet table in a back room off of the bar for 6:30 dinner service. We informed the server of our need to be out by 7:45 and he was able to deliver exceptional service, amazing food and drink, and even a birthday desert to my mom. Our experience was amazing and the food was SO good. We had the short ribs, two flatbreads, the mussels, the duck and the lamb chops- and it was all to die for. Will definitely be back the next time I’m in the city!

Loved the bar vibe and my Cucumber Gimlet. Table was ready on time, service was excellent and we were not rushed. The flatbread, croquettes and yucca fries were my faves.

The food overall was very good. My cocktail (the cucumber gimlet) was not well-balanced (way too much lime, very little cucumber flavor), but the crab and corn soup and brussels sprouts were delicious. It's very noisy, but it worked for us for pre-concert dining. Can't say for sure if I would recommend it--depends on the circumstances.

Food was quite good- especially the lamb tagine and service was fine but the noise was deafening. My ears hurt. Would not go if I wanted to talk to anyone.

This is the third time I’ve eaten here and we really like it. However, it would be nice to have some bread on the table or a roll. Just a suggestion.

The service was rushed. It felt like our waiter wanted us to hurry up from the second we sat down.

Food was average at best. I’ve never had a cheese plate with one type of hard cheese in my life.

Overpriced for what you get AND happy hour is only served at the bar.

Once again a great meal at District Social. I had the hanger steak and of course, the infamous brussel sprouts! The service was wonderful and aside from the loud atmosphere, it was absolutely amazing! I go back again and again and will continue to do so because this is a great meal at a moderate cost. Cannot wait to try Harrison's new place.....District Local opening up downtown!

My department was having a farewell lunch for one of our associates and I had made a request to have a quiet area for 11 people. They gave us a private room which was very much appreciated and provided a very nice ambience.

The food was interesting and good. - but the ambiance was horrible. It was so loud in there, that I had to shout at the person sitting next to me. Also - the service wasn't fantastic - they kept coming around to clear things every 2 minutes, even though we were not finished and then brought us the wrong check....

Great place. The food was excellent as was the service. The only issue was the noise. It got a little noisy when we were there; 6:30-8:30. Nothing terrible but having a conversation was difficult at times. Overall, definitely recommend.

Okay RODRIGO our waiter is amazing! Hope I got his name correct cause he is a great and fun person.
I love coming here. The atmosphere is perfect - darkish however you can see your delicious food. And the FOOD is always cooked well and delicious!
This was my first time to experience their brunch and SO glad we did. We shared 2 dishes and I gotta say their “eggs Sardou” is just wonderful!!!
If you love artichokes this is your dish. Artichoke hearts serve as the vehicle to serve up a nicely baked egg with tomato and goat cheese.
I can’t wait to go back and enjoy that again.
Overall it’s a top notch restaurant/bar. Close to Penn and the Garden and sadly this area lacks food places.
This is a fab place.
Thank you District Social. Always a pleasure to see you :)

The drinks were excellent and the food was amazing. I woke up the next day wanting to go back again. I had the Branzino which was cooked to perfection. The All-Inclusive cocktail is a hit and the Pear Moscow Mule is refreshing and potent...in the right way of course.

If you are going out to a bar this is a perfect setting. We could not talk to each other without screaming across the table. Completely ridiculous noise level! Otherwise the meal was very good.
