this is the second time I have eaten here and it was just as good as the first...delicious food, good atmosphere, good service, good value for your $ and nicely located just down the street from the theatres. Check it out if you haven't been there - you won't be disappointed

We always enjoy our time at District and if you're very lucky you might just run into your favorite Blue Jay's back catcher.

Our only complaint is that service can be slow and it can sometimes take a while for someone to notice you standing in the doorway.

I enjoyed a delicious brunch with my family on the weekend, service was excellent and I especially appreciated the wonderful vegan options on the brunch menu and almond milk. It is so difficult to find restaurants who cater to vegans and non vegans and District Eatery made for a great experience for all at our table!

The burger and fries were ok. Please stop using ice burg lettuce on the burger. The fries were greasy. My friend had bowl of chicken salad but the portion was very small.

Off the mark a wee bit but overall it was good.

Slow service. We had tickets to a show nearby and our food didn’t arrive for 45 minutes, leaving us 5 minutes to wolf it down. We only ordered starters thinking that would be faster, but it wasn’t .

They cancelled my reservation 2 hours before because of the "NBA Finals" - I can only assume they oversold their tables. No call or follow up. Won't be attempting to eat here again.

Our reservation was cancelled by the restaurant because of the Raptors game . Strange that we booked 6:30 and the game was 9 pm. Half the tables were empty and we were told all open table reservations were cancelled . Why give up a sure thing for walk ins ? Doesn’t make me feel valued as a regular customer . Disappointing .

The menu had a wide variety of options, especially for people with dietary concerns- which is awesome! The food and drink service is reasonably quick, which is excellent. The service itself leaves some to be desired. Our server seemed quite overwhelmed and a little short.

The entire experience surpassed my expectations, it was bad weather outside ,and very early for the theatre. The greeter welcomed us in and said it was fine if we sat and waited until it was time for our reservation. The servers were very attentive, the food delicious and generous portions, being downtown, the prices very reasonable. Well Done!!!

Took a chance on a last minute reservation and was happy we could be seated. Four of us came for a quick pre-theatre dinner and everyone enjoyed themselves. Good, eclectic, variety of foodstuffs on the menu was really appreciated (especially for the picky vegetarian, me) Recommend for a quick meal or longer summer dinner with friends. 👍

Usually eat here before theatre.
It's very loud which limits conversation.
My companions vegan mash came to the table cold. Staff quickly remedied this with gentility and apology.
My omelette was tasty and the right temperature. I recommend tho the vegan meatless loaf dinner, my usual choice.
This time I chose from the brunch menu.
Wasn't a great meal but being brunch it's not like fine dining.
If only the noise of music was not so loud the ambiance would be more condusive to
eating with a companion.

Good atmosphere, nice place, and the food was pretty good (I appreciate the well labelled vegan options) but not on par with the best restaurants in the area. I ate the vegan burger and aspects of it were good - the patty, vegan mayo - but overall it was a little dry and average with unimaginative elements like a far too large and stiff piece of lettuce on the small burger.

But most importantly, really average food. We had to return one dish as it tasted really bad.

We selected District Eatery for a work lunch because of the menu variety. Those who had the vegan/trendy food options (zen bowl, charcoal flatbread) enjoyed them; those who chose more traditional (piri piri chicken, chicken sandwich) did not. The food took a while for lunch.

Admittedly I found it a little difficult to locate on the street as other than a big scripted sign above the restaurant (that's really hard to read from under the restaurant), there were no other signs on the door or windows. The food was good but a little light on the key flavours in the menu description. A lot of items had sesame seeds and as they are a major allergy, found the menu a little challenging to navigate although they did accommodate as much as possible. BIGGEST ISSUE: upon arrival of our first guest, they crossed off the reservation. When the next two, then one arrived, they said they didn't have a reservation for us yet our first guest had been seated at a table in the back while we sat waiting for her in the front. UGH!

The service was impatient and very rude. She looked upset when I request some changes to the plate for dietary reasons. She seemed in an urge for my party and I to leave the restaurant. I am dissapointed about the service.
