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.

Wasn't the menu I expected. The shared plates are okay. The grilled cheese and etoli dip were not enjoyed by the group. Chicken bits were good. The shrimp salad could be better by actually being a salad. Maybe arugula and fennel.

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.

Our waitress Chanel (sp) was very friendly and prompt with bringing our drinks and our food; they had a great deal called flight and bite. Our reservations were for 5 p.m.- the area was empty when we got there and by the time we left it still was not crowded or busy or loud.

The ambiance at District Winery was great, but their food preparation nearly ruined the night. A member of the party had celiac disease and requested a gluten free item, making sure to clarify that the item was prepared separate to other items containing gluten due to the severity of her sensitivity to gluten. However, only AFTER the food was delivered to our table and she took a bite did the server let us know that the item was prepared with other items containing gluten. Luckily the consequences were not severe, but this was a near disaster. District Winery, do better! Do not mark food as gluten free unless it is, in fact, gluten free!

District Winery
Responded on 2 August 2021

Hi Caro, thank you so much for your review and feedback. We take allergies very seriously and do sincerely apologize for the confusion. We have removed the gluten free tag from any food items that may be prepared with other items containing gluten. Please do extend our apologies to the member of your party with celiac and we hope to have you all back again soon for a better experience!

We went on a Sunday afternoon. Unfortunately we missed brunch but we had a great time!! I loved our waitress Alex. She’s amazing and knows her stuff!

We ordered the meat board and the cheese board. The charcuterie board does not include both meat and cheese so you’ll need to buy the separate boards. The meat and cheeses provided were tasty!

Also ordered the soy chicken bites 9/10 ! They are good but they kept coming out kinda cold.

Last we had the grilled cheese sandwich. Some folks liked it, others like myself could pass on it. There is a sweetness to the grilled cheese and that’s not what I had in mind when I ordered it. I wanted the simple savory grilled cheese not something sweet. The sweetness came from the sweet tomato sauce/ jam used on sandwich.

We ordered two bottles of cava which was very good!

Wine was decent, food was fine, we were outside on a Friday night so it was unexpectedly loud due to a preplanned outdoor concert until 9pm, probably our fault for not realizing that would be going on...

Although nice for a tasting experience, the food left something to be desired, and the staff was inattentive. The kale salad consisted of shredded kale with light dressing, one apple slice, and a few chickpeas. The grilled cheese was mostly bread with only light tomato sauce and a sparse sprinkle of shredded cheese. The wines were nice but alone did not justify a return visit.
