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.

It was a good experience, did I exactly love each of the wines I tasted on the flight? No, but that is also on me for not doing my research 1st, not everyone’s recommendations are the same taste you have. But my drink I ordered was really good & the food wasn’t too bad

For a wine bar the wine selection was disappointing. Limited from a perspective of quality and county of origin.

Food was average.

We had a lovely afternoon sitting outside with a water view. The all day menu is a light bite kind of thing so if you're really hungry, you want to order a couple of items. I had the oak barrel chardonnay which was nice enough. My friend had a bloody mary and reported that it was perfect.

Took out town friend to this neighborhood staple. We had reservations for 830 PM. We were seated, water was brought out promptly. After approx 10 mins I got one of the manager’s attention to let them know about the lack of server attention to us after having sat down. She was super nice and brought out bubbly on the house. The server finally showed up and our orders put in. We ordered a few small plates and some flights. The food came out normally, but the order of drinks was a disaster. We ended up order something less complicated to drink. Over all nice place, but the bad service from the server is what my friends walked away with.

I'm very disappointed by the quality of food at District Winery now. Last time I was there, it was exquisite. This time it feels like bar snacks, frozen to table, including a grilled cheese that tasted like pizza and was only grilled on one side.

I look forward to when District Winery is back to the quality it was in 2019.

the food was fantastic. they asked if we were celebrating a birthday, which we were, but did nothing about it -- no song, no free dessert, nothing.

after our first tasting, all of the wine "got stuck" because of the humidity jamming a door, so we weren't able to try wines that we wanted to. In addition, all of the wines were void of flavor and if they did have a vague taste, it tasted watered down.

views were great if sitting on the patio and like I said, the food was good, but everything else left me wishing we went somewhere else.

It’s a beautiful place and we were able to sit outside with a nice view of the water. We had the option of ordering from the all day menu or brunch menu. We ordered the crispy chicken bites, warm cheese dip, and sausage sliders. The first two items were delicious, the sliders were just mediocre. The service was fair, had to wait a very long time for our waiter to come by to give our check. We will definitely return.
