Last night I met up with some other McMaster Alumni round Calgary for dinner and drinks at District Tavern. While I had fun, I'm afraid I have to give this place mixed reviews.
Pro: great cozy atmosphere
Pro: produce from local farms
Pro: reasonable prices
Con: they don't give you menu's....instead you have to get out of your seat and walk around/physically move a bunch of chalkboards that have the menu on them
Pro: the long island ice teas were super tastey, and their happy hour meant I paid like 11 bucks for 2!
Con: the waitress dropped a fork on me when clearing the table, leaving a stain on my sweater
Pro: The linguine carbonara I got was tasty... but
Con: I swear the chalk board said it was supposed to have bacon and instead it had sausage and...
Con: I asked the waitress if it came with like a garlic toast, and she said yes on foccacia bread... what in fact came with it was a bottom bun of a hamburger that had been toasted (no garlic no nothing)
Con: they charged an automatic 18% tip... which I probably would have tipped 15 max all things considered
Anyways, would I go back, for drinks definitely... for dinner, I don't know.
