The District does it right

A great wine list, lots of brewskis, and a vivacious atmosphere make this a great choice for those who don't mind a fairly noisy place, as long as the eats are great.

Visited there on Friday night, and was seated promptly which was great. It took over 20 minutes for a server to acknowledge is, another 10 for us to be able to order drinks. We Ordered the tenderloin (rare) and chicken. I got my well done steak and my friends chicken was so dry it was hard to cut. Considering we... More

This is a small establishment with a tiny outside patio. We were a group of eight who had developed quite a hunger by way of a long walk. There was no problem seating us together, and our beer order was quickly fulfilled - a small but good variety of choice. The meal wasn't quickly served but well worth waiting for... More

The district is a hip restaurant on the north shore of Vancouver harbor. We didn't know anything about it and ventured in because the mussels caught my husband's eye. The menu is Belgium inspired, complete with a large beer selection. My 10 year old daughter and I shared some appetizers for our dinner. (There is no kids menu.). We had... More

I ate there yesterday, oh wait no I didn't. I tried. I went there with two friends for breakfast. After a long wait we were greeted by the server. We ordered drinks and food. I ordered scrambled eggs and ham. After a long wait once again the food arrived. My eggs were poached and decorated with a hair. My friends... More

went in for a quick glass of wine on Friday. rude server. we sat at the bar and got grand view of inadequate hygiene in their kitchen. the wooden chopping boards were wiped "clean" with dry cloth between chopping chicken, onion, cabbage, cheese etc. Gross. we will not be returning.

My family and I went there on a whim wanting to try something new. I loved loved loved the crab cake hash - pure heaven. Hubby had the full protein breakfast and liked it. Daughter wasn't a huge fan of the waffles - which was surprising. Service was nice and attentive.

This is one of those impossible-to-get-into spots on Lower Lonsdale. Hungry at 5pm worked in our favour last week. We were able to get a table at the district, and were in and out before the uber trendy crowd arrived. We had an early dinner at The District on Friday night. I had the beef rib - just one single...

There are several little eatery gems in the area, but District keeps calling me back. Lunch today was Duck Confit Poutine. Oh salty goodness, how I needed you!. Unpretentious poutine with all the right flavours would have been fine, but add the duck and oh, oh, oh my. The staff were just delightful and as it was a late lunch,... More

Went to The District for the first time last night with friends, and definitely won't be going back. We all shared a double order of crab fritters that was basically deep fried dough with no crab in sight, along with some deep fried oysters served so heavily battered and overcooked that we had no idea what we were eating.
