Good food, good price, great staff
Thanks for visiting us! We're so glad you enjoyed dining with us.
Wonderful service! The staff noticed we were celebrating my cousin’s birthday so they added a touch to take the celebration up a notch. Everyone was very accommodating and thankfully adhered to appropriate social distancing...even in the restrooms.
Good wine... surroundings... totally enjoyed the small plates.
Thanks for this feedback, we are so happy you enjoyed the small plates!
The staff was of mediocre interest and help. It's a shame they are "forced" to work there. (Or at least that's how it appears.) The other area restaurants are much better in terms of service and quality.
Hi there, thanks for bringing this to our attention, as this is not the level of service we strive to provide! We hope to be able to serve you again in the future and would be happy to connect you to our management team to learn more about your experience if you'd like.
great food and service, made my 21st birthday very special!! thank you
Thanks Marisa, we're so happy you enjoyed your birthday with us!
The entire staff was extremely nice, attentive and informative! They ensure my friends and I had everything we needed with minimum waiting.
Thank you, Omar! We are so happy you were taken care of.
Great views near the water. If you can, sit outside! Awesome ambience and service. Definitely recommend!
Thanks, Jake. We're thrilled you were able to enjoy our views and wine!
Great location. Good food and wine. Wish the menu had a few more choices, but what we ate was yummy. Always enjoy the ambiance.
Thanks for visiting us, Martin! We are glad you enjoyed the wine and food.
Wanted brunch, but due to Covid, no brunch menu. We absolutely understood but opted to dine elsewhere due to the limited selection. Ambiance was great! Very picturesque and our server was amazing for the ten minutes that we had her.
Hi there, thanks for visiting us, and for your understanding of how limited menu due to current circumstances. We are glad you enjoyed our views and ambience and encourage you to stay tuned for updates as we are able to expand our menu again!
It rained but they were able to move us inside
Thanks for visiting us and for your flexibility with the changing weather!
Great service, awesome food and wine! Amazing views and very clean and open space for the current times.
Thanks for visiting us! We are so happy you enjoyed your food and wine.
Great service! Love the wine and food! Will totally recommend to a friend and will be back!

Hi Claude, thanks for this review. We're so happy you enjoyed your experience!
Angelica was very pleasant and provided great service. Made us feel comfortable from the moment we arrived at the table and was attentive throughout the experience.
Thanks for visiting us, Stephen! We are so happy you had a nice and safe experience with us.
Delicious food, great outdoor seating and strong wine.
I like the location and ambience. Due to social distancing it wasn’t many people inside. I wish the hostess didn’t set the couple next to us as close as she did when it was plenty open tables but other than that the food was good but the menu is limited. The food we tried was good and the drinks were good
Hi there, thanks for visiting us! We are so glad you enjoyed your drinks and food. We appreciate this feedback and will pass it along to our team!
Love the menu even more now! The turkey meatballs were delicious as was the whipped ricotta. Angelica took great care of us and it felt safe with all the social distance protocols.

Great food and service, wait staff cares and is very nice. Tip your servers, it’s COVID times be supportive!!!
Great place great people.
Went for an anniversary celebration. Wonderful place!
Service was excellent. Everything came out in a timely manner
We (my husband and I) went for Sunday brunch during our spring break. We had made a reservation on Open Table ahead of time and they seated us at a nice table right by the window so we really enjoyed the view. We both ordered the crab cake Benedict and absolutely loved our food. The mimosas were also very good. We went the the tasting room first to kill time since we arrived 45 minute before our reservation. We enjoyed tasting their wines. After our brunch, we came back to the tasting room and purchased a couple bottles of their wine at a discount since we had eaten at the restaurant.
This was a great brunch place! We really enjoyed our meal!
Came on a Saturday evening with a later reservation (9pm), and they were able to squeeze us in earlier at 8pm which was really appreciated by us! Really enjoyed the food and the wine (although a little expensive), but service was a bit slow, and seating was cramped to try and squeeze in as many people as possible. Still would recommend or come back myself!! Good experience overall - made for a nice dinner with family in town.
Beautiful and the food was great! Went for brunch with the water view. Wonderful wine tasting after.
The food was good, although the desserts weren't as good as we thought they would be. The service was excellent.
Loved our dinner here! The staff was great and food was delicious.
The waitress was very friendly and professional. My husband and I loved the service. On the menu they need to put more variety like more seafood for dinner.
Everything was wonderful! The burger was amazing! I guess the only advise would be the wait staff assigned to us could have been more engaging with us; she looked new and timid.
District Winery, so the wine has to stand out. And it does. They buy grapes from regions around the US, and remake the classic flavors in vats onsite. To try their varieties, we ordered flights, and found the Melbec stood up the best to the variety of dishes we enjoyed. It has enough wine juiciness to marry the fruits in the dishes, enough body to stand boldly up to beef, and enough tannin to match the spicy. For two we ordered 3 small plates and a side of brussel sprouts and shared it all. It was more than enough food. The French Onion toast is essentially the well known soup deconstructed and rebuilt into an appetizer, with the short rib adding a wonderful layer of rich flavor and texture. This is how French Onion soup should be eaten! The scallops with pear and lemongrass, is essentially a delicate cerviche with a Thai twist. A nice refreshing plate to compliment the spicy Golden Beet Muhammara. This plate is a yellow beet chutney with pomegranate, toasted almonds, Aleppo chile, (pineapple?) and these candied lemons - which added a sprig of intense sour with sweet candy slowly melting into the dish. With flat bread to spoon it onto, it everything that is good about vegan eating. Finally, the brussel sprouts are pan fried at a high and charring temperature, seasoned perfectly - with a touch of honey for sweetness and pumpkin seed brittle for nuttiness. I could order this for lunch by itself. The service is impeccably modest. Recommendations, since it was our fist visit, were spot on (the muhammara, toast, and sprouts). Water glasses refilled without interrupting table conversation, empty plates and wine glasses quietly removed, enough check-ins to make sure we were comfortable, but not overly solicitous. There no space for a vineyard in DC, but District Winery is everything a visit to a winery should be. Great wine, great food, excellent atmosphere...and the view of the river doesn't hurt either!
The burger bun was burnt...all I could taste was the “char” on the bun. It was so bad that the burnt bread overpowered everything. I paid $17, and didn’t want to waste my food. Perhaps this place is only good for tapas? ...wines are still so I’ll be going to the wine tasting place for sure.
Stopped in for dinner while our daughter and her friends ate des a concert at The Anthem. We are wine enthusiasts who are particular about high/quality food. We found both the wine and the food to be outstanding. At the recommendation of the server, we ordered the lamb ribs as an appetizer followed by the Ribeye for two and crispy Brussels sprouts. Normally the beef comes with bread but since we are both gluten-free, the server said the chef would include the sprouts at no charge. We couldn’t happier with the quality of the food and service, of course the wine was also outstanding. We will definitely be back in the warmer weather to enjoy the beautiful waterfront patio.
This place is just okay. The food was lackluster, and the service was... immature. Beautiful scenery, but that’s about it.
Loved the wine tour with”The Ambassador”! Great humor and VERY knowledgeable! Appreciated the discount on food for booking a tour! FABULOUS food and service in the restaurant!!!
We're so happy you had a nice time! Thank you for visiting us!
A Christmas gift
The service was excellent. A great place for dinner.
great service, great food, too loud- acoustics need serious attention
We had a great time at the winery. The food is good, the wine was excellent and the vibe is very cool. Looking forward to coming back in the warm weather to take advantage of the patio and the view.
First time dining here and it was amazing! Will be back
We have been to Ana at District Winery several times and it never disappoints! Food is amazing and staff are friendly and attentive. Highly recommend to others!
