Restaurant FAQs

Your safety is of utmost importance to us. Hand sanitizer will be provided for guests and employees throughout. We have developed sanitation and safety procedures for thoroughly disinfecting tables and chairs, and will remain in alignment with all current local regulations and requirements regarding COVID-19.

We have a rotating selection of wine flights including a Make Your Own flight which allows you to sample three of our wines in 2 oz. pours. Our knowledgeable staff can answer any questions you may have about the wine as well as food pairings!

The Navy Yard metro stop is located 4 blocks from District Winery and is a  6 - 8 minute walk.

District Winery is a unique operation that has both a restaurant and a tasting bar in the same building. Like at many other restaurants, guests can enjoy a bottle of wine in our bar, dining room, or on our patio. How our location differs from most traditional restaurants is that that we also have a tasting bar where guests can purchase bottles of wine to consume off-site, just like they would at a wine shop. Wine bottle prices in restaurants are inherently higher than to-go pricing at wine shops because of the added hospitality and service that guests receive while consuming the wine on-site. 

We will do our best to accommodate allergy and dietary restrictions. If you make a reservation, please enter allergy and dietary restrictions into the notes of the reservation, so that we can properly prepare. Please also notify your server upon arrival, so that we can offer appropriate dishes.

Cakes are allowed in the wine bar, but will incur a cutting fee. Please contact the winery to learn more.

We do not allow any outside food or beverage in our restaurant.

Our patio is first come, first serve, and we do not make reservations outside. If there is availability at the time of your reservation we will do our best to seat you on the patio.

We automatically add a 20% gratuity for all parties of 6 or more and you are welcome to add additional gratuity as you please.

A maximum of four (4) forms of payment may be used to split checks in our restaurant. You must notify your server at the beginning of service if you would like to split your check.

Smoking is prohibited on our patio.
