    When we first walked in, I was a little irritated because there was a hostess who just took a party to be seated + never came back out to seat us, but it was fine because another woman saw us and sat us. I really enjoyed the wine flights and liked that I got to make my own. I also enjoyed how our waitress explained all the wines and demonstrated a good tasting technique. I didn’t really like the brunch food— i got the shrimp and “grits” and I thought the risotto was a little undercooked and too sweet. And I LIKE sweet stuff :( Overall, I would come back again based off of service and value for the wine, not the food.

    We went there for the brunch specifically for the Austrian breakfast only to be told after we ordered, it was not available. Our reservation was at 12:30. So, quite disappointed. But, what we did end up ordering was very good. Next time I’ll call ahead

    The staff went above and beyond to make my birthday and memorable experience. Hands down it was the best and most thoughtful birthday outing I have which included having a birthday card with my name on the table. I was my first time customer and I will definitely come back! Highly recommended!! Thanks District Winery for an outstanding and joyous celebration!!!

    The food and wine were good but the service was spotty. We were walk-ins and told one of the hostesses we wanted to sit outside given the beautiful day. She began to walk toward the patio and I asked if we should follow and she said “no, I need to update things.” ??? She then came back and got some menus, did not address us at all, and escorted some others back to the patio. She then came back and said they couldn’t accommodate us outside. We left, hopped on OpenTable and booked an outdoor table for 10 mins from when she told us she couldn’t seat us. ??? So we went back and were seated outside rather quickly. There were many tables available throughout our dining experience, so I’m not sure why they wouldn’t seat us in the first place. Once seated, we were not asked for our order until we flagged wait staff to take it. Again the food and wine were nice, but the service needs improvement.

    District WineryResponded on November 12, 2022Hi- I am so sorry that your experience with us was jumbled and fell flat. I have privately messaged you with my personal email and information to see if we can turn your next experience around. We hope you will give us another chance! And again, thank you for your feedback, we can only learn from hearing all of the good and the bad.

    District Winery is in a great location and they have terrific ambiance. The food, however, is sub-par and overpriced. We had the mushroom risotto and a chicken dish. They were ok but at about $30 they should have been wonderful. We ordered a cheese plate and for $10 you get 10 tiny pieces of cheese. It tasted fine but felt like a joke. That’s not enough cheese to be a cheese board. It’s a nice place with good servers but they need to do a better job offering food worth the premium price. It seemed like they were depending on patrons drinking enough wine they wouldn’t taste the average, overpriced food.

    The outdoor patio was lovely on an unexpectedly warm fall night, and the food delicious. Not so welcome: the diner who brought two LARGE and loud dogs, one of whom jumped up and put its paws on our (thankfully empty) table when entering, I'm hoping for others' sake this person is not a repeat customer!

    The ladies up front we’re happy to see us and very professional. Our waiter seemed to have a few things on his mind, perhaps he was cover too much but his service was good overall. The ambiance is always good here and when outdoors, it’s whatever’s going on outside which can be entertaining.

    The wine is incredible but the food (at least at brunch) is pretty bland. I'd recommend focusing on drinks and finding food elsewhere.

    Disappointing experience. The wine and cheese was good. Unfortunately our entrees were not. My dining companion had a fish dish that was dry, but serviceable. I had the risotto which was so salty it was practically inedible. Cocktails were cloyingly sweet. Our server barely came to the table at all and never even offered dessert. I would come back for wine and cheese, but not for dinner-- especially at these prices.

    District WineryResponded on October 20, 2022Hi Bess- Thank you for sending in your feedback, we can only grow from this good or bad. I am so sorry your service and the entrees fell flat for you. I will be taking this up with our Chefs and our service team. I would like to invite you back on me to turn your experience around! Please email me at eherbig@districtwinery.

    The positive aspect is the location which is right on the water. The restaurant has an outdoor seating area with glass windows which can slide up or down depending on the weather. Also, there are walking trails leading to/from the restaurant and it was great to take a stroll after our meal. The service unfortunately was not the best. It took almost half an hour for our server to bring out a cup of plain black coffee. Also, it took a long time to order our meal and once it arrived, my order was incorrect and I had to wait for the right order to arrive. Which meant my dinning companions felt awkward eating without me. In addition, the food simply wasn't well prepared and our cocktails were mediocre at best.

    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.

    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.
