“Disappointed”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

Went there on Friday night. Was happy to see the place was packed and had to wait for a table. A packed place is usually a good place. Once we were seated things started to go badly. The server came around every 20 - 30 mins. I even ordered 2 drinks because of this. We ordered our food and it took 1.5 hours. The food was not very good. I ordered the steak sandwich and on the menu they describe it as a well steak sandwich , open faced with gravy and such. I was served a roast beef sandwich with very little meat and was frankly a joke. My wife's scallops were over cooked , cold and dry. Save your $$ don't go here. Check out Raglans next door.

“Horrible service”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

The food was OK but the service here was horrible. I will never go to district again due to the servers there. They always seem understaffed and when you ask them for anything they act like they are being bothered by you. It never used to be like this, but more recently it has gone downhill.

“2 best reasons to visit - Carbs & Fats”
Reviewed December 26, 2012

If you're looking for a place to satisfy your carbs & fats craving, by all means, go. It's an average place with average service (at best) and a menu chock-ful of cheese, pig & starch - admittedly, the perfect comfort food for some. For me, I'd much rather go next door to Burgoos!

“Cosy”
Reviewed December 14, 2012

Nice dark happening little place to get together as a couple for dinner or appis or, like us, getting together with some friends for a glass or two of wine. Try the bar to the left in the back. Lots of privacy and easy to hear if theres a lot of people in the restaurant. Good service, reasonable prices and great atmosphere...we liked it!

“Great brunch, except waffles and french toast”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

Went for Brunch, it was great. The potatoes and 'The District' benny were standouts.

However, there were some issues. The food took 1 hour to arrive, that is unacceptable. Secondly, the Belgian Waffles were burnt and hard to a crisp. They weren't supposed to be Liege waffles either, but Brussels waffles. They were a complete failure. Lastly, the French Toast was lazily made with hardly any batter at all. Essentially, tasted like Texas Toast with syrup on it.

I would definitely go back for the Benny and potatoes, but stay away from the sweet stuff, and make sure you have tons of time on your hands.
