Special thanks to the restaurant and staff for making my birthday feel special. Everything was on point: great food, atmosphere, and customer service. I highly recommend going here!
Hi there! Thanks so much for choosing to celebrate your birthday with us! We're so glad we could make your day extra special!
The District Winery is a favorite of mine. The staff are polite and walk you through the wine and food very detailed. I went with two friends to have the Flights and Bites, and the pours were very nice, and the "bites" were quite large and tasty. Fan favorites- soy glazed chicken and the roasted brussels sprouts. While they have done away with their full dinner menu, due to COVID and staffing shortages, we were not disappointed with the quality nor the size of the food we received. The wine is always great!
Hi Dana, thank you so much for the review and kind words! We're so glad that our regulars continue to enjoy the menu and appreciate your feedback! Looking forward to seeing you again soon, cheers!
Marvelous, as usual. Friendly staff and fantastic food and wine.

Loved the food wine could be better! Honey Glazed Chicken Slammin!!
Hi there! Thanks so much for the review and feedback. We're so glad to hear you enjoyed the food, the chicken bites are definitely a favorite! We hope to see you again soon.
Was great. I miss the full entree menu but the bites were very tasty.

Excellent food and drinks. Great happy hour and weekday specials.
Hi Ashley, thanks so much for the review! We hope to see you again soon!
We had reservations and was seated as scheduled. The menu was very limited but my husband and I had the holiday flight paired with cheese board which was ok. However the apple pie dessert wasnt as desirable. Ambiance and service was good. Nice place to meet up with friends.
Hi Junette, thanks so much for the review and feedback. We really appreciate it and are glad that you had an enjoyable experience overall. We hope to see you again soon!
Had an excellent bottle of Malbec with cheese board. Ample for two moderate eaters. Pretty view of the water. At least where I was seated, COVID-friendly (so to speak).
Hi Jonathan, thanks so much for the review and feedback! We're so glad to hear that you enjoyed your visit and hope to see you again soon!
Food was delicious…server and hostess was friendly
If your looking for a place that is following social distancing and the protocols for Covid do not come here!! No one is wearing mask, people cough into the air instead of covering their mouths and the staff are unmasked and come very close to you. The food is good. It’s extremely loud in the evenings. The wine tasting is nice. It’s a good price. But again if your looking for a restaurant that is filling the Covid protocols this isn’t the spot to go to.
The drinks were good, the service was fine, the food was actually bad. I sent back the grilled cheese - thick tasteless bread, almost no cheese (three cheeses? No way) and a weird sweetish tomato sauce. I also got a vegetable dish which was like sweet pureed baby food. The french fries were okay. The salad was way too sweet. Apparently the chicken was good according to my guests but all the vegetarian friendly food was inbetween lousy and meh. Truly disappointing - and I spent over $250 for four of us.
Awesome cheese and charcuterie board, but the service was incredibly slow! Half priced wine bottles (dine in only) on Sunday’s 3-9pm!!
Hi there, thanks so much for the review and feedback! We're very sorry to hear that your service was slow and not up to our usual standards. We appreciate this information and hope to see you again soon!
Even though the dining room wasn't busy by any means at the time we had arrived, the service was a bit uneven. Our server brought us the wrong wine flight. Also, our table got really cramped given that we ordered multiple items, so in the future it'd be ideal to either space out the timing of the food or just have larger tables (even for parties of two like us).
That being said, the food and wine were great and we'd likely return at some point in the future.
Hi Tess, thanks so much for your review and feedback. We appreciate this information and are sorry to hear that your service was not up to our usual standards. We're very glad that you enjoyed your meal and hope to see you again soon!
The service was an awesome experience.
They were very accommodating, my family and I will be spending lots of time there during the Spring and Summer.
Hi there! Thanks so much for the review and kind words, we're so happy to hear that you enjoyed your visit! Cheers!
girls night date to catch up! perfect experience and atmosphere
Hi Jill, thanks so much for the review! So glad to hear you enjoyed your visit. Cheers!
Great experience. A few more food options would be great.
Hi there, thanks so much for the review and feedback! We look forward to seeing you again soon!
We came for a girls night and it was a lovely time, the staff was very accommodating and attentive. Only wish was that the Wine & board tues/wed deal be a bit more substantive/have more on it. But overall, a great time.
Hi Olivia, thanks so much for the review and feedback! We appreciate this info and are glad that you had a great evening! We hope to see you again soon, cheers!
We absolutely loved our experience. The food came out in a timely manner and was delicious, and all staff members were cordial and efficient in fulfilling our wine orders (with the wine being fabulous, as usual).
Hi there, thank you so much for the review and feedback! We're so glad you enjoyed your visit and hope to see you again soon!
I am somewhat disappointed at the menu change. In doing so, options for brunch related items significantly reduced. Adding mojo sauce to the breakfast sausages nearly ruined the dish. Don’t over complicate breakfast to the point where it is no longer breakfast.
Hi there, thank you so much for the review and feedback. We're sorry to hear that you did not enjoy the food and we'll definitely pass your thoughts along. We hope you might join us again so we can find you something you enjoy more and provide a better experience!
Nice place to meet up on the weekends. To refresh for the week.
Great water views with a fun vibe and happy hour.
I had an overall good time with my party of four. The food was really and we enjoyed the atmosphere and wine. I think that only thing that upset me was when our waiter came back with our receipt and gave us attitude about the tips and told us the right amount we needed to provide for the next time we come. Although, I did not contribute to the bill and tip since it was my birthday brunch. It was not necessary for him to come off disrespectful.
Birthday brunch for my wife with 2 other couples. Great waiter who took care of our 2 attendees with a gluten allergy and was very communicative with of the the party members that is deaf.
Our server, Brandon, was PHENOMENAL! He was attentive, made great recommendations and provided great service during our 3.5hr experience. Thank you for making our birthday celebration special!
The pork sliders were amazing and they have the best Brussels sprouts I’ve ever tasted!
Hi there! Thank you so much for the review and feedback! We're so glad to hear that you enjoyed the sliders and brussels sprouts. Cheers!
Very expensive but great atmosphere!
We didn’t order any food but the survey would not let me continue without a response. Everything we did partake in was fantastic, though!
Hi there, thanks so much for the review! We're so glad to hear that you enjoyed your visit and look forward to seeing you again soon. Cheers!
Came here for drinks after my birthday brunch. It was really nice of them to bring me a dessert in addition to our small plates and delicious wine
Hi there, thanks so much for the review and for choosing to include us in your birthday celebration! We're so glad to hear that you enjoyed the experience and look forward to seeing you again soon, cheers!
Would love to have had heaters outside
Hi there, thanks so much for the review. Heaters will certainly be added to the patio! We appreciate your patience as we get everything set up. Cheers!
What happened? District Winery was one of the great places in town. Now it is barely bar food.
Hi there, thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We're sorry to hear that you did not enjoy the food during your visit and appreciate this feedback. While we have adapted our menu to be more heavily focused on the wine, we still want to offer our guests tasty and satisfying small plates! We hope you might consider joining us again soon so we can provide you with a better experience. Cheers!
The porportions are really small for the price that you pay.
Hi Marie, thanks so much for the review and feedback. We appreciate your note and will certainly take this feedback into consideration. Cheers!
Food items were not as fantastic as I've had in the past but they were still good.
Hi Rachel, thank you so much for the review and feedback. We're glad to hear that you found some dishes you enjoyed. We'd love to hear more about what you liked and disliked! We hope to see you again soon. Cheers!
We asked our waiter if he recommended one of the merlots over the other, his response was, “I’m not really a wine drinker.” I would expect a little more from the wait staff at a winery, some base knowledge would’ve been helpful when deciding.
Hi there, thank you so much for this review and feedback. We strive for excellent customer service and that includes giving helpful, informative feedback on the menu. We'll definitely pass this information along as we work to give our staff the proper wine knowledge and training they need to give helpful suggestions! We hope that you enjoyed the experience otherwise and found some wine that you liked!
My husband and I went on a lovely date here. Would 10/10 recommend checking out. We had gorgeous views of the river while we sipped flights of wine.
Hi there! Thanks so much for the lovely review and for choosing us for your date night! We hope to see you again soon!
Great hosts, great service, great waiter, great food and ambiance. Wine flight was great.
