It's always hard to decideIt's difficult ot decide what to order as the chef is always coming up with wonderful daily specials and the menu has so many excellent choices. Even got my kids to eat asparagus (beer battered quick fried). We have eaten here many times and have enjoyed everything. Save room for dessert - the chocolate cake is one of the best ever and one slice (which is about a quarter of a cake) can easily be shared by 6 or more!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved it!I thought the food was wonderful, and had a large variety. Ate some food that I had never tried before. Great experience!!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of my favourites.Of all three times I've been to Destihl, I've yet to be disappointed. Great food, great atmosphere, and great drinks - they are a brewery after all. Not terribly pricey for the quality you're getting, and despite its fancy exterior, the dress code is pretty casual (going-out casual, not sweat-pants casual). I'd recommend this place for any college kids looking for a classier upgrade to the usual Green St. dining scene.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGood for all agesWaiter was very attentive to my party, and sensitive to the needs of two toddlers with us. Food, as usual, was very good!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was only my second timeThis was only my second time visiting Distihl. The servers were very friendly and willing to offer suggestions both times. I made reservations for 2 because I wasn't sure how busy it would be on a Sunday evening, but it was not crowded when we arrived. Their beer menu is large and I liked the option of a 4oz glass so I could try a new beer without committing to a larger glass. The first time I visited I had their veggie burger which was delicious! This time I had their Turkey burger. I thought the burger was a little bland. Banana cream pie for dessert was so good! The setting is a little above casual, and I feel like I should dress up a little for this location.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMDon't miss this one!Great brew pub in Champaign! Don't miss this one. Kobe burger is tasty, wow BBQ sauce!
Let your waiter pick your brew. Very knowledgeable!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food in Urbana ChampaignWe had an excellent meal at Destihl. Our waiter was extremely knowledgable about the menu and gave great recommendations. The beer was very good and had many selections.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMCan't Miss!!!!Destihl was fantastic, once again. They have a great variety of craft beers which were very fresh. Other members of my group enjoyed top notch martini's. The appetizers were unique and very good. Our main meals were served timely and were a perfect 10. The service was flawless. Our reservation was for 5:30 and we were seated by 5:35. Our server was very knowledgeable and friendly. I wish this place was near my home!!!!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMI went to visit my daughterI went to visit my daughter for Mom's Weekend. Destihl was "the" place to be on Friday night. Fabulous bar with a sophisticated vibe. I am not a beer drinker but the gentleman next to me said the beer selection was great and fresh. (not just a lot of beers, so they can call themselves a microbrewery) A lot of people were eating at the bar, which is fun. For dinner, I had the cassoulet, which was good. I wish I would have had a burger like my daughter did. She said it was great. I will definitely return. As a matter of fact, I am planning on getting a reservation for Dad's Weekend.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Place to Celebrate!Seated in the bar by the window-great spot to people watch! Started with Raspberry Wheat Ale-light fruity taste. We split a Strawberry Goat Cheese Salad and a Bacon Cheese Burger. The balsamic dressing and candied cashews make this salad so fresh and unique!
The Bacon & Cheeseburger was done perfectly, the bun was toasted just right and who doesn't like bacon?!? We split the banana cream pie-the carmelized bananas are delicious! Our server, Bill, was attentive and fun! He made great recommendations to our party. We will certainly go back soon! Destihl not only met, but exceeded our expectations for a great meal, ambiance and service!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a very nice brunchWe had a very nice brunch on Easter morning. The menu offered a variety of choices and the vanilla/cinnamon french toast was very good. There was enough for me to enjoy at the restaurant and again the next day at home. The server was very friendly and attentive. A very pleasant experience.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMIf this was our first experienceIf this was our first experience here, we would never go back. We went on Easter Sunday, and had made a reservation. We were seated almost immediately. Our waiter was exceptional, thus making this experience better than the food or the time it took to get our food. We are very patient when dining out. We are not the type to make a fuss or be demanding as we understand there are variables that can cause a less than perfect experience. However, we we were warned by our waiter that tickets were running 40 minutes, and he did kindly offer to put in our order as soon as we were ready to get it in the works. We wish our meal took 40 minutes, as it actually took 70 minutes. Unfortunately, when it did arrive it was less than par.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMIt is a place we will comeIt is a place we will come back to over and over. Great experience, food and service was exceptional.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was our first time there.It was our first time there. We ran just a bit late. We called and were pleasantly guided in and told they validate parking up to 2hrs. Once inside we had a ball. The staff is very knowledgable of the food.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWe adore Destihl. The foodWe adore Destihl. The food is always excellent, the service is always great and we always leave happy!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Banana Pie was the bestThe Banana Pie was the best dessert I ever had in my life! The service was perfect. I would just close the kitchen since some tables are too close to it and is noisy.3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMOur server, Grant, was fantastic!!Our server, Grant, was fantastic!! We were a crazy table of 4 moms out on the town, but he took it all in stride. He deserves high praise for putting up with us.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMOur waiter was outstandingOur waiter was outstanding and he contributed to our wonderful experience. Kudos to our waiter!!!!!! We forgot his name, but we will be back, and hopeful get him to serve us again!2/15/2013 12:00:00 AMReally liking the unique menuReally liking the unique menu items on holidays and special occasions. Destihl's cooks are great and it's nice that the restaurant recognizes that by giving them opportunities to pursue new creations. My girlfriend loved the Valentine's Day martini. Keep it up.2/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThe staff were very welcoming,The staff were very welcoming, though we had to wait 10-15min. for our table even though we had a reservation; this could be due to the special occasion (Valentine's Day). Our server was enthusiastic and helpful, always smiling and polite. The bartender was able to make "fancy", non-alcoholic drinks for my son that didn't break the bank and made my son feel special. The food was exceptional in flavor and presentation, and was cooked exactly to order. The eatery itself is beautiful, but it was a bit noisy and the tables were in very close proximity to one another, so it may have been a bit difficult to have an intimate conversation, for those who wanted to. Overall a wonderful experience. We will definitely be back :-)2/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWe tried a new small plateWe tried a new small plate this time: Brussels sprouts and bacon. We're not fans of Brussels sprouts, but we both liked this. Our entrees were the Thai shrimp, a favorite of both of us, and the special: amberjack with shaved vegetables and a white bean paste. Both were phenomenal. We also tried new desserts: the Napoleon and the chocolate mousse. We liked the Napoleon better, but both were great. I would get the Napoleon again. It was light and delicious. The main highlight was our water Peter. He's a gem: very friendly and attentive.2/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
