We had a very nice meal with our family on Sunday night. Tasty food, fresh vegetables and a nice glass of wine. The deserts are amazing and the staff friendly and very service minded.

Really enjoyed this place. It's a great place to go for a lively, busy after-work spot. Had drinks at the bar before dinner and the bartender was very good and friendly. Nice meal, with some interesting salads available.

Was here for lunch. Great food and the service was wonderful. No one was hovering over our table but were attentive. Drinks were strong and nicely made. Will be going back next time I'm in DC.

I visited District Commons for the first time today. The menu has a wide range of fresh takes on traditional comfort foods. I liked my Southwestern grilled shrimp flatbread very much; it was larger than expected, with plenty of shrimp and corn topping, and I...More
