We love visiting District Winery for appetizers and wine. All of the food we've had there has been really good - and it's a great selection of wine. Great option for a date night.

The food was great (brunch menu) however I think that the flight of wine was not standard. We saw other tables and they have more wine than us....but the wine was amazing. I strongly recommend to go to this place.

My friend and I both tried the wine flight and then decided to each get a glass of the Zinfandel. Our waitress offered us a bottle, as it would “be the same price” for the two glasses we were originally getting. Later, when the check came we noticed we were being charged for a $50 bottle when our two glasses would have only been $24. We were hesitant to even get a full bottle because we knew we wouldn’t finish it, and when asked if we would take the bottle home if we didn’t, the waitress said “yes.” When we asked why were being charged so much for a bottle she said that she assumed we would be having more than a glass, therefore it was better to get the bottle. We asked to speak to the manager and he proceeded to place blame on us and said that we “misunderstood the waitress.” He took the bottle back which was a little more than half full and gave us a cash refund.

The whole experience was disappointing, as we had been waiting to try District Winery for some time. We understand the problem was caused by miscommunication but placing the blame on the customers who had never been to the establishment before was awful.

We enjoyed the outdoor Seating- our favorite wine was the Zinfindel-we bought a bottle ($23-if you’re eating or drinking there) otherwise it’s $48 to buy- which is way too much- $20 is more feasible we also shared the cured salmon bite- very tasty! But if it’s nice out- worth a try

The location and atmosphere were nice. This was my second time there but the first time i just did a wine tasting. Went there to get out and to replace the glasses we bought previously as we had broken them. They no longer sell or have available the district winery glasses. Second, i had been expecting to have a meal but they only had starters/appetizers and no real meals. They call themselves a wine bar so don't go expecting to get a meal. The wine is good.

There is no good food option. The hostess was somewhat angry. He also sat me on a dirty wet chair. After I told him that, he didn't bother to apologize. They didn't give us silverware or napkins until we asked, and they were not even too busy. The wine gave me a headache.

The host was very pleasant when we arrived, we were able to sit in the location we requested. Only to be disappointed, we sat at our table for 15 mins. we were only acknowledged because we had to flag the waitress Laura down for assistance. She stated of "I didn't see you all sitting there". Please keep in mind we were one table away from the bar area. Once she took our order the food came out very quickly and it was really good. I would defiantly go again, hopefully the wait staff will be more observant.
