The ambiance was outstanding! Waterfront views, prime location, and a great breeze. I would certainly recommend it for a happy hour or late afternoon occasion since the wine was great but the food was not. Definitely worth the value if it's just the wine you have to pay for.

Food was great; staff was amazing; the tables seemed a little close together but maybe COVID-19 paranoia kicking in? But all in all, was a lovely safe outdoor eating experience.

I’m done with district winery. This was the nail in the coffin. We waited an hour for a table despite having a reservation, resulting in us missing brunch by 4 minutes...no exception was made despite the restaurant being responsible for our tardiness. Furthermore: DOGS are not allowed on the patio, despite what they may tell you on the phone. When you get there, they make you pass the leash through the patio gate...any dog owner knows this is not the same thing. Yet another frustrating experience with the service at a otherwise solid restaurant.

Oddly, I thought this was a restaurant called a winery. Very small menu and they were out of a number of menu items. They also don’t take reservations for outside, which is strange. Made the reservation a week in advance. And thought there was an enormous bar, they were not serving anything except beer and wine. Service was mediocre for DC - just excepted a more refined experience.

Hi there, thanks for sharing your feedback with us. We're sorry you didn't have a chance to experience the level of service that we strive to provide. Our restaurant, menu and drink offerings have had to go through some changes due to COVID-19. As noted on our website, our patio space is first come first serve, but if you make a reservation and there is space outside when you arrive, we are more than happy to seat you there. We hope you'll visit again!

My sister came into town for a visit- and she’s a wine fan- so it seemed like a good excuse to go check out the wine place that I kept saying I wanted to try.

It was fantastic.

Honestly, the food was nothing to write home about, but the wine was excellent, and the server was FANTASTIC. She was so knowledgeable and helpful- able to recommend wines based off our vague explanations of things we’d liked and not liked- and we loved everything she recommended; I’ll go back again for that kind of service, no doubt.

Service was terrible. We understand outdoor seating can’t be reserved but when we asked to be placed on the waitlist they just left us standing in the middle of the restaurant and forgot about us. We asked for help several times and they told us to just sit down. We eventually just left as all the service staff behaved rudely to us even when we were polite to everyone. They kinda ruined our date night. I was always told the service hear was bad but I guess so had to experience it myself.
