We came to celebrate a birthday but the server forgot to bring a candle in the dessert. Food delivery was sporadic. The $60 steak was cold, and not seasoned well. Not the distilled we remember.

We moved our reservation to the early 5:30pm seating to avoid pending inclement weather for our long drive back to Charlotte. The staff were very friendly and attentive even though we were a few minutes early. I’ve never had pork chop taste that good. Wonderfully paired with the Gorgonzola covered gnocchi and delicious Brussels sprouts. We shared the chocolate bourbon cake for dessert. Fantastic meal and experience. We look forward to coming back.

First time there. Absolutely loved it. Everything was delicious. Parking is a challenge but it’s well worth having to find a spot. I will definitely be back. Champagne was a bit expensive but overall value was awesome.

We love Distilled & Heirloom. Mark does such a great job creating intimate spaces & delicious seasonal menus. We eat here regularly & love the mussels & she crab soup. On our most recent visit, we also tried the tempura catfish which was also delicious! It was light, airy & the sauce added the perfect amount of heat & spice. For our entrees, we enjoyed the tuna, filet, burger, linguine with shrimp & kids chicken tenders w/ brussels sprouts. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their dishes & cleaned their plates! We also enjoyed cocktails & wine that were perfectly prepared.

The quality of the beef my daughter and I had was outstanding. You could cut it with a fork. The preparation was wonderful and exactly as we ordered it. My wife had the fried chicken which was moist and outstanding. The brining done in the preparation puts it a step above. My son had the pork chop with gnocchi and it too was excellent. The location may have changed but the quality of the food has not.

This was our first visit since Distilled moved to the old Nick Ryan Saloon building and the ambiance is an odd mix of upscale with saloon. The food was good but the service need some polishing.

Great food, great service, great bar service. Management was present and engaged with customers. Impacting value, we were disappointed to pay $5 to share the $13 wedge salad. Not requested, but they did divide it into separate servings. Best to just share it without mentioning your intention, I guess.
