Wonderful evening!!!! Tracy is awesome!!!!
Wednesday nights are half-price wine (in bottles) night, so we enjoyed that benefit. But the food really is outstanding, if a little pricey. However, because it's such an enjoyable patio, with good service, and that unique ahi tuna appetizer, it's worth the price to us. My husband enjoyed the Carolina catfish; I had the fried chicken; our dinner companions had a hamburger & the ravioli---all delicious. Of course, the frites in duck fat are great! So, all-in-all, you can't lose with Distilled. I just hope they maintain their level of great food & service!
Great vibe, delicious food, wonderfully friendly and efficient service. Casey and Rain are both gems!
Great food and service. A new favorite for sure
We had a lovely evening at Distilled! We started with the meatball appetizer and mussels; they were both divine! Everyone loved their entrees and desert. Casey waited on us and was fantastic. Looking forward to going again soon!
Food was outstanding! The food quality is even better than it was at their original location. This will be our new favorite date night spot!
I recommend Distilled to everyone. They have never disappointed us with quality of food or service. It is one of the best places in Lexington to eat.
The food was incredible, the service was TOP-NOTCH. The waitress noticed that we were on a date and really went out of her way to make sure the ambiance and the food matched the vibe. Cannot recommend enough.
Great food and service - we were very pleased with our experience.
Absolutely wonderful first time at Distilled in Jefferson! The service was excellent and the food was delicious!!!!
Food was delicious as always.
Dining room is a bit louder than former venue.
The four of us had exceptional service and a very nice table in the back of the dining room. The four entrees were delicious as were the desserts and cocktails. We will definitely be returning.
First time there and we will definitely be back!
Everything was slow. Slow to get our first drink. Slow to get her order in. After the order came we asked for some things that took forever to get there mustard. At the end of the meal I had to go find the waiter to get the check It seems like the waiter forgot about us.
That being said all of the food was excellent I had the crab soup and the crab ravioli both were great and My guests also had good meals
Food was very good! We had the best service and really good bottle of Stag's Leap Cab.!
The food was excellent. The service was initially slow, but once they realized it, the service returned to being very efficient and attentive.
Limited menu and food combinations were not tasty. Our party of 4 was not impressed.
Very good meal. Excellent service and just a nice night. Good idea to move to Jefferson.
Has always been a great location. Now a(n already) great restaurant is in an even better location.
Waiter Gideon was great. Host and mng staff were rude and we almost left before seated due to treatment. Customer service is your business and coming out of Covid you should be very customer oriented rather than arrogant and condescending like you and your restaurant are something special and we should be happy to be permitted to dine with you. Your competitors just got our business.
My husband and I enjoyed our dinner on May 20. We had fantastic cocktails to start. My husband loved the she crab soup, and thought the fried catfish was the bast he’s ever had. The crab ravioli were great, and the desserts as well. I think it would be noisy if the restaurant had been full, but luckily for us it was a quiet evening. Service was excellent.
Accommodating and friendly service, elevated southern cuisine, top notch.
Great place to eat! The Catfish is so good that I wanted to have another serving as dessert—spectacular! Kudos to Mark Wombles!!
Great ambiance with a simple, elegant menu coupled with a good selection of hand crafted cocktails.
We had a wonderful time at Distilled for my boyfriend’s birthday. The service was wonderful, creative drinks, and delicious food. The crab cake appetizer special was full of crab and perfectly cooked, the muscles tasted like they may of had too much tarragon in the broth but that is just personal preference. Three of the four of us got steaks and all were cooked perfectly. We ended the evening with lovely complimentary desserts for the birthday boy.
The only flaw in the evening was a rowdy table next to us who may have just over indulged but there was yelling of profanities and slamming fists on the table. Obviously not the restaurant’s fault at all. Some people just need to learn how to behave on a night out.
I would definitely recommend!
Great food, beautiful space, but above all amazing service. Our waiter Steve was awesome.
Wonderful Mother's Day lunch. I hope that brunch will once again be offered at some point in the future.
Wonderful brunch experience. Food was excellent and our server was very attentive.
Kitty and I had a lovely Mother’s Day lunch.
Katy was our server and she was fabulous- food was wonderful- and we enjoyed the patio dining.
The food and service were incredible. We will definitely be returning, sooner than later.
This was our first time at the new location on Jefferson, and while charming, we prefer the original location at The Gratz Park Inn and The Sire. The elegant banquettes and superb service are missing and have been replaced with inexperienced wait staff and sluggish service. Street parking is difficult to obtain and the luster has been diminished.
We arrived at 5:30 pm for a 6:15 reservation and immediately saw a favorite server by the name of Padgett. We asked to sit in her section in the front, yet were escorted to another room. The hostess’s response was “We are fully booked.” While pleasant, she lacked experience. The overall service was lackluster and slow.
While the food is always delicious, having inexperienced staff detracts from the overall dining experience. In the past, Distilled has been a treat while in Lexington, and we have even promoted the restaurant to friends and family, yet with this move to a new space, the experience has diminished. Sadly, we will not return.
The food was absolutely fantastic! We will definitely come back
I love this place as always, and will keep coming back!
Great food and service. This is a Top Lexington restaurant
Great food, great service. Little loud inside but not terrible. Will return gladly
Such a great dinner. We love the new location, great casual atmosphere. The food was the best. We will be back again and again!
Excellent in all respects.
Excellent service, brilliant cuisine, inviting atmosphere. Perfect birthday experience.
