Distilled has never, ever dissappointed. We drive 1 hr each way, once-a-month for dinner. Their staff are amazing and their food is unmatched it the State of KY.

It had great service and a wonderful Valentines 4-Course Meal (It was too enjoyable to be stuck on my phone for photos all the time). The desert was so new and well throughout. I enjoyed my night and the music vibes, I'm glad I was able to reserve a table at all in time.

First time to Distilled in the new location and it was superb. From the lavender lemonade cocktail to the lamp shank, fall off the bone, delicious 'special', we had a wonderful meal. Appetizer mussels were also a hit. Great experience and even better food.

Our experience was great. The tone was set by our server. She had great energy and was as concerned for our experience as much as us. She guided us through the meal to make sure we maximized our evening. The food was hyped up and met those expectations. The pace of the evening allowed us to enjoy the entire experience.

We really enjoyed our anniversary dinner at Distilled. The service was outstanding and so was the food! They also put us at the most adorable corner table with plush, comfy chairs. We had the cheese board appetizer and it was delicious. The she crab soup and Caesar salad were also excellent. I can’t recommend the country ham wrapped scallops enough either! After dinner drinks, dessert...all was outstanding! Highly recommend!

It was fine. It feel much difference than distilled at the former location. It isn’t as intimate and doesn’t give off as much of a fine dining feel. Our server was great. The food was fine with a few exceptions. The bread was super hard and is a slight change from what was offered at the formal location. Crab soup was excellent. Caesar salad was great and is one of of the few places you can get a fresh made caesar dressing with anchovies. I had fried catfish as an entree. The catfish and garnish was good and it was fried nicely. The “frittes” tasted frozen. We have been going to distilled (previously Jonathan’s) for twelve years and it just isn’t the same in this new location to me. Still, if you’ve never been, give it a try, and get the fried chicken.

We went out to try this restaurant, we found the ambiance very nice and welcoming. The food was good, even if maybe they tend to load every plate with a bunch of sauces... we decided to keep everything separate in the dishes in order to taste them separately, and good for us because not all of them were our favorite taste. Service was good, especially one server was super kind with our son. Overall a good experience, maybe a little expensive but understandable considering the environment.

I took my boyfriend here to celebrate his birthday and the food was absolutely amazing! The service was spot on as well!!!! She was very attentive and refilled our drinks in a timely manner...this restaurant is kid friendly to an extent..they did have options but they were minimal and the grilled cheese was difficult for our son to eat...but he did enjoy trying our meals and they made him feel very welcomed!

Our 2nd visit to Distilled was just as wonderful as our 1st. The food was creative, well plated with premium ingredients. Our server Casey was again outstanding. We appreciated her recommendations, attention to detail, and her infectious passion for all things culinary.

We are looking forward to a return visit soon!! 😁

Love their new location! Cozy and elegant at the same time. Our server, Kasey, was fabulous. She was friendly, efficient, and knowledgeable about the menu. We had the tempura catfish appetizer, my husband had the salmon from the menu and I had the halibut special. The food was spectacular and memorable. The vanilla Old Fashioned I had was delicious and our wine was great. Bottom line, we had a great night and we can’t wait to go back. I can’t recommend Distilled highly enough.

Literally the best food in Lexington. Better than Tony’s or Jeff Ruby’s. All 3 of our meals were flavorful and had a very good presentation
