Highly recommend the baked brie! Small and busy most of the time for dinner/drinks but on a week night Monday-Thursday, good place to gather.

Saturday brunch - sat at a high top in this dimly lit and small space. Service was absent. Food was average. The croque monsieur was dismal with the sauce sticky and slopped on. The breakfast bowl was tasty with onions and sausage but greasy. No one cleared the table. We had to go to find someone to pay the bill... More

A great selection of beers, inspired food and fun room. I come here often to enjoy some world class beers and have a well prepared meal. It is got a great buzz and the staff are very friendly.

Had a nice dinner here recently with friends we had not seen for a while. Menu was interesting and our meals were good. Don't expect to be filled up with the beat salad as the portion was modest, but tasty. Service was good. We would not hesitate to return.

We visit this great neighbourhood spot every time we are on the North Shore of Vancouver. Great food, friendly service and nice laid back atmosphere. There is something for everyone, I have brought my senior inlaws here, had a night out with my husband and had family dinners with my 5 year old who loves the foie gras!. My favorite... More

Fresh ingredients, delicious food, and a calm, fun atmosphere make this a delightful stop for brunch. The District is known for its locally-sourced, made-from-scratch lunches and dinners; but if you are out-and-about and looking for a great weekend brunch spot in North Vancouver, you will thoroughly enjoy this restaurant.

We were glad to stumble into "The District" after a long day of tourist activities around Vancouver. The biggest selling point for us stopping and staying here was the fries. We were seated close to the bar/ kitchen area. While we were awaiting our meal we noticed the real artistry behind the counter of the way the food was prepared... More

We came here for a company party and it was amazing. The food was beyond expectations. They were busy the whole time however the always managed to have time for our group of 15 people. One of our dishes didn't come at the same time as everyone else's so it was generously covered by the manager. I can't wait to... More

My wife and I were in town for a conference. We walked by The District the evening before, smelled their cooking and both said, "We should eat here tomorrow." So we did. Mains looked good, but ordered five appies to share. Ordered beef croquettes (which also come with a small order patat friets), cauliflower fritters, crab fritters, deep fried brussel... More

We did. Deep fried and crisp on the outside, pretty delish. We also got the duck rillete which was quite tasty. We also split a No.13 burger that came with some fries. Enjoyed a couple Deep Cove pale ales and a Nostradamus craft beer on the heated patio out front, and the partial view of the vancouver harbour made for... More
