“good food, uncomfortable outdoor seating”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014

The food was fine, if a bit expensive. Service was very good. We ate outside, which was very, very nice, except for the seating. There were two types of outdoor tables: normal height tables, with rigid plastic orange chairs that no one was happy with in our geometrically-diverse group; and high tables, with higher, almost backless chairs (with orange fabric seats) with which all but one of us was unhappy.

Non-valet parking is available, but I had to drive past about 50 empty spaces (reserved for valet parking) to get to it. Most establishments put the valet parking farther away from the entrance than the free self-parking. These guys seem to have something else in mind.

“very "pretty" food, not very tasty.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2014

The food was presented very well but I could have gotten a tastier taco at Dell Taco. The $9.00 featured margarita was good but not a $9.00 margarita.

“Mmmm...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

My family and I went to Distrito for my wife's birthday and it did not disappoint! The food was excellent, the service was good and the atmosphere was very relaxing. You take a short walk through a hotel and enter a very beautiful restaurant. I can't wait to go back and have more tacos!

“Go For Breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

You will not be disappointed... The coffee is fantastic. I did not get the french press but the regular cup of coffee. I had the eggs benedict and the chorizo sausage omelette. I did not go out for dinner but I am sure the food is just as good.
