There was a wait for the food. I recommend the Huevos Rancheros, very tasty. Not that thrilled about the bloody Mary. They did deliver it spicy enough as requested. My son's French Toast was gooey and delicious.

I had local Cod that was perfectly cooked and a generous portion. Service was excellent and the chef even cleaned the grill before cooking my food to accommodate my gluten allergy. We will definitely be going back.

The atmosphere is nice and the location is great. It's a really nice looking place, but the service, management and food lacks. The advertised hours are not accurate, as I opted to go there one evening with my sister at 9:30pm, and it was closed.. even though on the window in BIG letters "open until midnight". That wasn't ideal, but... More

I must be honest we have had quite a few meals at The District in the past 6 months. Whether it's sitting out under the tree-lights on a balmy summer evening just my husband and I or it's a family of 10 Sunday brunch under the front awning - we LOVE The District! The food is great and has a... More

We went with Friends during "Restaurant Week". Portions were disappointing small, though acceptable, nothing rave about though. What really was upsetting- our server asked if I would like another fill of my Ice Tea glass, not once but twice. When the check came, there was $3.00 charge per glass of tea- the original plus the two refills. My wife's glass... More

Stopped in for a bite on a Saturday evening. We ordered an app and an entree. The poutine was so over salted it was inedible and was sent back. The entree was also over salted, the gnocchi in it was hard, and I would have sent that back as well. My beer was nearly room temp and served in a... More

We met another couple from out of town and even though the restaurant was busy hosting for the NH Film Festival we had nice friendly service and we were all pleased with our dishes that ranged from scallops, salmon, veggie burger and the pad thai dish. My salmon was perfectly cooked and had a wonderful flavor, paired nicely with sweet... More

On our annual trip to Portsmouth, we tried having dinner here. The interior decor was contemporary and simple, and there was an outside eating area. A couple of us ordered salmon on a spinach base and another person ordered a fish taco trio. The salmon was very okay...probably cooked medium well, and lacked a lot of flavor. It tasted just...
