    Try have completely changed their menu. It is now more done dining. Majority of the items were foreign to me. The menu should have a combination of some of the old items (I.e Brussel sprouts, meatballs, etc) in addition to fine dining items. Probably won’t return anymore.

    We sat outside, beautiful space and scenery - you can see the boats docked on the water and the helicopters coming in and out of SE. Unfortunately, the food was over salted and the wine didn’t come out until after our entrees.

    District Winery is a great please. My husband had the eggs royal and the eggs were perfectly prepared and the béarnaise sauce was delectable. I had the eggs and hash and the chorizo and eggs along with the béarnaise were cooked wonderfully. My husband did the white wine flight and it was OK as the wines were in the light side. I had a wonderful glass of Albernio. Full flavor and well balanced. Afterwards we had a cheese plate and chicken pate. The reason for my overall rating of a 4 is the very disappointing cheese plate and the staff really needs to know the wines and the food. Now back to the cheese plate. For $9 you only received 4 very small pieces. What’s up with that. Not worth the money At a minimum this was worth about $2. Very disappointing.

    We came into town to attend a concert at the national stadium. The food was incredible. Super healthy and delicious. met the needs of a lot of dietary restrictions. Complex flavors & fresh! friendly staff, we sat outside and the view of the water was personal.

    Went for happy hour. Disappointed to find that this includes drinks only - no food. We ordered a few cheeses, thought the portions were pretty small. Shishito peppers were plentiful. Food and wine all tasted good though.

    Our out-of-town guests (Charleston, SC) were delighted. Server was cheerful, knowledgeable and a good sport. Although the food was fresh and tasty, there was not a wide selection. Apparently a larger menu (entrees) will be available in September. Disappointing for us, but something to look forward to in the future. Definitely recommend.

    Everything was just okay. Very limited food options especially since a waterfront restaurant and didn’t have any seafood on the menu, not even one dish. I asked for scrambled eggs with cheese (they don’t have cheese except a Gruyère). Service was poor especially since it was empty in the restaurant. Just a cute place but not for food. My drink was tasty the peachy keen.

    I was very disappointed with the brunch menu. Menu changed after reservation was made. We had 3 young kids and menu offered very little to choose from in terms of children food. I asked the manager if they could accommodate our group (12) and provide a few additional options for children and we were told NO even though tab was significant. I do not recommend brunch at this restaurant.

    Brunch was fine. In my opinion nothing to write home about. We had the oysters( that didn’t look that fresh, tasted fine though) and Brussels, which could have used some salt. For entrees we had the avocado toast and the fried egg hash. Both were fine. Drinks were good. I had the old fashioned and my partner had the strawberry something Of another. The service was really good but honestly the food wasn’t out of this world.

    Overpriced and needs better service. We had a large party, which we reserved about 1 month in advanced. The sat us outside with a broken fan and there was no air to breath. We asked to move and they agreed. They sat us on the other side of the outdoor patio where there was no fan and in front of the Don Jon's porta-potty... We asked again to move because there was still no fan and we didn't want to watch people go in and out of the bathroom. After moving us inside, we waited with no menus. Finally I just got up to the hostess stand retrieved the menus and ordered for the whole table to make the process faster.

    This was our second time and we won't be back. The service was awful. Our server disappeared after delivering our drinks and never came back. We had to flag down another server after over 30 minutes. We were initially going to stay for drinks and food but after being ghosted, we paid for what we ordered and went to a different restaurant. The wine wasn't what I remembered from our first visit--the Sauv Blanc had a plastic taste to it and the Reisling was undrinkable. This was a disappointing visit!
