The staff was of mediocre interest and help. It's a shame they are "forced" to work there. (Or at least that's how it appears.) The other area restaurants are much better in terms of service and quality.

Wanted brunch, but due to Covid, no brunch menu. We absolutely understood but opted to dine elsewhere due to the limited selection. Ambiance was great! Very picturesque and our server was amazing for the ten minutes that we had her.

I like the location and ambience. Due to social distancing it wasn’t many people inside. I wish the hostess didn’t set the couple next to us as close as she did when it was plenty open tables but other than that the food was good but the menu is limited. The food we tried was good and the drinks were good

We (my husband and I) went for Sunday brunch during our spring break. We had made a reservation on Open Table ahead of time and they seated us at a nice table right by the window so we really enjoyed the view. We both ordered the crab cake Benedict and absolutely loved our food. The mimosas were also very good. We went the the tasting room first to kill time since we arrived 45 minute before our reservation. We enjoyed tasting their wines. After our brunch, we came back to the tasting room and purchased a couple bottles of their wine at a discount since we had eaten at the restaurant.

Came on a Saturday evening with a later reservation (9pm), and they were able to squeeze us in earlier at 8pm which was really appreciated by us! Really enjoyed the food and the wine (although a little expensive), but service was a bit slow, and seating was cramped to try and squeeze in as many people as possible. Still would recommend or come back myself!! Good experience overall - made for a nice dinner with family in town.

District Winery, so the wine has to stand out. And it does. They buy grapes from regions around the US, and remake the classic flavors in vats onsite. To try their varieties, we ordered flights, and found the Melbec stood up the best to the variety of dishes we enjoyed. It has enough wine juiciness to marry the fruits in the dishes, enough body to stand boldly up to beef, and enough tannin to match the spicy. For two we ordered 3 small plates and a side of brussel sprouts and shared it all. It was more than enough food. The French Onion toast is essentially the well known soup deconstructed and rebuilt into an appetizer, with the short rib adding a wonderful layer of rich flavor and texture. This is how French Onion soup should be eaten! The scallops with pear and lemongrass, is essentially a delicate cerviche with a Thai twist. A nice refreshing plate to compliment the spicy Golden Beet Muhammara. This plate is a yellow beet chutney with pomegranate, toasted almonds, Aleppo chile, (pineapple?) and these candied lemons - which added a sprig of intense sour with sweet candy slowly melting into the dish. With flat bread to spoon it onto, it everything that is good about vegan eating. Finally, the brussel sprouts are pan fried at a high and charring temperature, seasoned perfectly - with a touch of honey for sweetness and pumpkin seed brittle for nuttiness. I could order this for lunch by itself. The service is impeccably modest. Recommendations, since it was our fist visit, were spot on (the muhammara, toast, and sprouts). Water glasses refilled without interrupting table conversation, empty plates and wine glasses quietly removed, enough check-ins to make sure we were comfortable, but not overly solicitous. There no space for a vineyard in DC, but District Winery is everything a visit to a winery should be. Great wine, great food, excellent atmosphere...and the view of the river doesn't hurt either!

The burger bun was burnt...all I could taste was the “char” on the bun. It was so bad that the burnt bread overpowered everything. I paid $17, and didn’t want to waste my food. Perhaps this place is only good for tapas? ...wines are still so I’ll be going to the wine tasting place for sure.

Stopped in for dinner while our daughter and her friends ate des a concert at The Anthem. We are wine enthusiasts who are particular about high/quality food. We found both the wine and the food to be outstanding. At the recommendation of the server, we ordered the lamb ribs as an appetizer followed by the Ribeye for two and crispy Brussels sprouts. Normally the beef comes with bread but since we are both gluten-free, the server said the chef would include the sprouts at no charge. We couldn’t happier with the quality of the food and service, of course the wine was also outstanding. We will definitely be back in the warmer weather to enjoy the beautiful waterfront patio.
