Service was great and the food was really good. Great for birthdays
Amazing place to hang out and dine, sip some wine and enjoy the view.
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.

Hi Lynnette, thank you so much for the review and kind words! We're very glad to hear that you enjoyed your visit and hope to see you again soon!
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.

Perfect weather made outdoor seating awesome!
District Winery is a great place to have brunch. I really enjoyed their specialty brunch drinks and wine flights.
Hi there! Thank you so much for the review and kind words. We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed brunch! We hope to see you again soon!
The food was okay, not great. Portions were small and pricey for what you got. The wine was disappointing and the glasses were VERY small pours. Service was adequate but our server knew nothing about the wines. I don’t RE commend.

Went there for my birthday and had a great time, food was so good
Hi there, thank you so much for celebrating your birthday with us! We're so happy to hear that you had a great time. Cheers!
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.
Hi there, thank you so much for the review and feedback. We're so sorry to hear that you did not get to try the wines you wanted to and very much apologize for the inconvenience. We will pass this information along to avoid the issue in the future. If you do decide to join us again, please let us know so we can provide you with a more enjoyable experience!
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.
Hi Lisa, thank you so much for the review and feedback. We're sorry to hear that you experienced slow service, but are glad that your visit was pleasant overall! We look forward to seeing you again soon!
The food was amazing but the waitress was not very friendly and not very interested in serving us.

Had a good time trying several different wines and bites. The atmosphere is very lovely and the views of the water are great. Service near the end was a little slow, but overall good.

I wish the menu had a little more variety.
Outstanding customer service! Enjoyed it so much that I will be signing up for their wine club.
Hi there! Thank you so much for the amazing review! We're so glad to hear that you enjoyed your visit and are excited to welcome you back as a club member!
Service and wine options were great however the food options were not as tasty.
Hi there, thanks so much for the review and feedback! We're glad to hear you had great service. If you decide to come back for another visit we'd love to help you find some food options you like better!
The food was great and the servers were very friendly.
We had outdoor seating, it was beautiful overlooking the river and the Frederick Douglass Bridge. 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.
Hi there! Thanks so much for the review and kind words! We're so glad to hear that you had a great experience and will pass your comments along. We hope to see you again soon!
Expensive and not incredibly delicious. The patio area is very nice.

Not great selection
Wonderful wine and great view
Hi there, thank you so much for the review and kind words! Hope to see you again soon!
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!
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!
This place was lovely and the service was absolutely amazing.
Hi Michelle, thanks so much for the review! We're so glad to hear that you had a great visit. Cheers!
This is a lovely spot with large windows overlooking the water. It's very pleasant and tasteful. The wine is solid and the food is more substantial than expected for "small plates." For a casual stop, the French fries are first rate, and the salmon and chicken were tasty as well.
Hi there, thank you so much for the review and kind words! We're so glad to hear that you enjoyed your visit and look forward to seeing you again soon! Cheers!
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!
Hi Sherelle, thanks so much for the review and feedback! We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your visit and look forward to seeing you again soon!
Great experience, it was very enjoyable. We thought most of the items we ordered were perfect. Several food items fell a bit short of expectation in terms of taste.
Hi Alex, thank you so much for the review and feedback! We're so glad to hear that you had a good experience overall. We hope to see you again soon, cheers!
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... I do not plan to return, but i'd tell other people to give this spot a try with managed expectations.
Hi Kyle, thanks so much for the review and feedback. We really appreciate your insight and are sorry to hear that the experience did not meet your expectations. If you decide to come back for another visit, please do let us know so that we can make it more pleasant for you and your guests!
Really enjoyed it, grilled cheese is awesome, staff is kind and knowledgeable about the wine!
Hi there, thanks so much for the kind words! We're so glad to hear that you enjoyed your visit. We hope to see you again soon!
Not kid friendly! Wines were good, but food is only for sharing and sharp foodies. We left after the wines since our kid’s did not like anything on the menu.
Hi Carlos, thanks so much for taking the time to leave a review and for this feedback. We'll definitely pass this information along and hope you might come back to join us again sometime! We are evolving our kid-friendly options and would love to host you and your family for a better experience.
Loved everything about it!
Hi there, thanks for the review and kind note!! We hope to see you again soon, cheers!
Despite the weather last night, Alex made sure we all had a great time. She checked on us properly, the entire staff was great as usual, and I do believe my friends and I have a new favorite wine.
Hi there, thanks so much for the review and kind words! We're so glad to hear that you enjoyed the experience and look forward to seeing you again soon!
Alex was amazing! This is the second time she waited on us and she really made our experience great. I hope we get her again next time we go back.
Hi Adam, thank you so much for the kind words and review! We'll definitely pass your sentiments along and we look forward to seeing you again soon!
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.
Hi Matthew, thanks so much for the review and feedback. We're sorry to hear that the food was not to your liking and will definitely pass your notes along. If you decide to return for another visit please let us know so we can make your experience more enjoyable!
It was a great place for date night for the 4th of July!
Hi there! Thanks so much for the review and for choosing us for your celebration! We hope to see you again soon.
