This place has potential. It is aesthetically pleasing, brick wall, cool ceiling and lights, great windows. The service is good. Our server could not have been nicer. However, now we come to the most important part: the food. It is just OK. The vegetable risotto tastes good, but it was not cooked enough; risotto is not meant to be crunchy. The chicken strips are very good; the fries we sent back, because the were so overcooked they had no resemblance to a French fry in appearance nor taste. The second round were good. The salmon is good, but the portion should be larger; the rice it comes with was also crunchy, although tasted pretty good. Finally the roasted Brussel sprouts needed more roasting and were hard. Do you see a pattern here? Learn how to cook the food on the menu, please.

They managed to turn a health chicken sandwich into something inedible by serving it on greasy Texas Toast.... not a wheat bun... White Texas Toast....what were they thinking ... not a wheat bun or some other alternative.....Texas Toast ... who does that.......insane.

The food at The District is good overall. The chicken sandwich is great, as is the salmon, caesar salad and the appetizers are good. However, the side of asparagus is so oily/buttery/greasy that it is inedible. The wild rice is also drenched in the same. Why ruin good food with all that oil ?!

What an elegant classy place! I had been wanting to try this new neighborhood gem since it opened, and I will definitely be back. I ordered the 1/2 chicken cooked under a brick. It was delicious! Buttery and flavorful and delicious. The cheesecake was also a hit! The decor is very nice, and the atmosphere is great. It has a nice way of making you feel right at home, but with a touch of something more.

Mac & Cheese: soggy elbow noodles swimming in water flavored with a hint of cream, topped with a tiny patch of cheese purporting to be gruyere and a few breadcrumbs. Steamed Mussels: shriveled over-cooked mussels without a bit of flavor swimming in liquid with a hint of cream. About 1/4 of the shells were meatless and careful dredging of the bowl's bottom failed to snare any mussels that escaped the shells. Scallops: soggy, over-cooked scallops with mediocre Brussels sprouts. Very noisy bar with bone penetrating bass tones from the speakers. On the other hand, our server was wonderful; I hope she's able to relocate soon.

We went for dinner at 8pm on a Friday night, and the place was packed. I saw only two bartenders, and because the place is new, I figured service would be awful and we'd never get served. The hostess somehow managed to seat us within ten minutes, and we had our martinis served quickly and well made. The food--although still limited in choice-- is excellent. My burger was perfect, with wonderful hand cut fries and homemade aioli on the side. My husband had the scallops that were perfectly cooked and an appropriate portion. The vibe is casual but cool, and the staff is obviously a group of very well-trained pros. We're thrilled to have this new addition to our neighborhood and will definitely be back soon!
