Only patio dining was open, but it was a relatively pleasant evening, and there were ample heaters available. The food was exceptional in terms of taste and presentation.
Absolutely amazing dinner. We have been there 2 weekends in a row and plan to return often. The food is excellent. Goes back to a wonderful Chef. Food is so fresh. Thanks again
Love the ambience. Food was very good. Casey did a good job!
I loved the She Crab Soup - it was outstanding! My husband also loved his Short Rib Pappardelle. The Autumn Salad was sadly disappointing. Greens were limp and there was no discernable dressing.
Love the atmosphere, the food was delicious. The cocktails amazing.
Good food, limited menu, decent cocktails.
Use to be my favorite in Lex, but after the moving to the new larger location seems like the quality of drinks and food has decreased a little. Pricey.
My wife and I had an amazing dinner last night.
1. Poutine was amazing
2. Dry rub filet with Japanese sweet potatoes...omg so good.
3. I don't remember what we had for desert, but it was amazing too!!!
We will be back as soon as we get a baby sitter lol.
And of course....thank you for Paul Walker!
This restaurant has continuously been incredible! Our first dinning experience with Distilled was on Valentines Day, whole this restaurant was located in The Sire Hotel. The service, Food, Wine selection, ambiance all were outstanding. We have continued to dine with Distilled and have a joyous experience each time! They have moved location and are now on Jefferson and I feel it is even better than before! We have been blessed to have a server named Casey, (if you want a wonderful night ask for her!) and every meal has been to die for!!
Every bite you want to savory! We have had several dishes and specials from the menu and everything is always spectacular!!
Had a great time - drinks were good, charcuterie plate was delicious. I would order something other than the Braised Short Rib next time.
The chicken dish on the chow chow was delicious! The steak meal was delicious, too! We love the new location and will definitely be back! The atmosphere is wonderful and Padgett’s special touches are much appreciated! Our dining experience was a breath of fresh air especially during COVID!
The best restaurant in Lexington and best Filet I have ever eaten.
Distilled biggest asset is Kasey at the bar. She’s the perfect blend of stunning looks, amazing personality, and brilliant mixology!
Service and food was perfect!
Everything was perfect. The food was like no other. The atmosphere was wonderful.
Consistently good over time!!!! I love the new location. The flavors of every item was extremely well balanced. The cocktails were no less impressive. Those pickled strawberries though!!!! Out of the Park!!!!!!
Distilled is consistently our favorite restaurant in Lexington, but our first visit to the new location was not what we expected. The tables were a little close together, so we didn’t have a full 6 feet from the next person. Our server was also inexperienced and new. She was nice and you could tell she was trying, but she didn’t tell us about the specials or offer us a dessert menu. Luckily, our favorite server, Casey, took care of us like she always does! Without Casey, my husband would not have know about the ribeye special, which he loved! Overall, it’s still our favorite, and the food is the best, but we are hoping our next visit is a little better.
We had a great time, wonderful waiter, 60's fella with silver hair, can't remember the name....It was my hubby's birthday and all was perfect! Highly recommend going 6 ish, as it was not crowded at that time, it was filling up as we left....
My wife and I recently moved to the Lex/Paris area and have been exploring the food scene. We have experienced some good restaurants and some not so much, BUT tonight, Distilled on Jefferson absolutely nailed it.
We ordered 4 appetizers, 2 entrées and 1 dessert.
Everything was cooked to perfection, artfully plated and each had a unique chef’s twist to them.
My personal favorite was the chef’s app special of shrimp in a creole sauce.
Oh and how could I forget the impeccable service we received from our server Casey. She was an exceptional server and very knowledgeable.
We Highly recommend Distilled!
Love the new location! Some of the same great wait staff! Great menu. Lots of covered outdoor seating. We’ll be back!
Salmon was delicious!😋
Overall had a fair experience at Distilled. The food was good, but service was very slow and our server didn’t seem to know much about the food or drink menu so we were left kind of on our own. We were looking forward to the experience of Distilled and did not get that at all.
So glad to see this gem in great new space with a menu that make my mouth water. I wish them success and give them big marks for expanding during Covid. A great asset for Lexington.
They have. reinvented and recreated a truly class restaurant. The food was
great and the service over the moon. It was so good we did not want to leave.
Lexington once again has a great restaurant.
great food, great ambiance, great service. enjoyed very much
Great menu, great service, great ambiance. Wine list needs work. Not enough choices, and price points are out of line
Always good, we split the poutine appetizer, we each had the Tuna Poke bowl and then split the chocolate mousse and it was plenty. Interesting menu too!
We had a wonderful experience! The food was excellent.
A great addition to Jefferson St. Delicious with professional service and a great bourbon bar. Yesssssssssss!
The food was outstanding but Padgett, our server, really stole the show for the night. He was wonderful. Attentive, interactive and very much so dedicated to providing us with the best dining experience. I knocked a point off of ambience because of the bathrooms. Feels like this could have been updated a bit.
Distilled is above and beyond one of our favorite restaurants in Lexington and their new location has not changed that! The food, service, and ambiance always delivers and it is one of our favorite places to take friends and family. We adore their new patio set up and had a wonderful date night there. From the cocktails, to the appetizers, and the entrées every detail was outstanding and delivered with impeccable, friendly, and quick service. We look forward to many more date nights at their Jefferson Street location!
We love this venue and are so excited for Distilled to be here what a great combination! They were a little busy so hopefully service will pick up ! We will be back !!
This is a great addition to Jefferson Street!!!! We are very happy to have them in the neighborhood
Ben Lacy was on the patio. As usual, he was fantastic. Add to that, the outstanding service, fabulous food, and you have a perfect equation for a terrific evening. 5 stars so far.
Excellent food& service!
Distilled was the first place we wanted to dine as we arrived in Lexington. The hubby was there for the bourbon trail, I was there to explore the food scene. We heard good things about Distilled and was all ready to travel to The Sire when we received a call that they had relocated to Jefferson street. No opening night jitters here, the service was flawless and everything we ate and drank were followed by not words, but sounds! Kasey was friendly, professional, providing advice when needed, close, but not hovering. And ALL her advice was spot on! From start to finish the food was phenomenal and the Vanilla and Black Old Fashions are now enjoyed at home. The decor was clean and modern with a nod to traditional features and colors, warm and inviting but not heavy or clubby. I'm just sorry we can't have our very own outpost of Distilled back at home!! Not to be missed!
Our meal and service were outstanding. The presentation, creativeness and taste of the appetizers and our entrees were exceptional.
