Diner Reviews
  • "I love this place...great place for any occasion. They also have some really great special drinks and Sean is an amazing Chef."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Despite the fact that they air conditioning we broken on a 90 degree day, we decided to go, help them out and deal. Looked good on open table. Its big square room, high ceiling and a few levels of seating. Bar area and somewhat open kitchen in back. $14 drinks, very inventive. Good wine and beer list. The food too was good but, found it all mostly unhealthy and decadent. In some ways is very sophisticated comfort pub fare. Everyone raves about the duck and waffles, its a small dish and was ok. The ribs were tasty and different, but also soggy, nothing crisp on them and the bones dissolved and some us us stopped eating them because grossed out. Waitress very knowledgable yet wasn't always available. I'm not running back."

  • "I'm no food connoisseur but I know a good place when I eat at one. Delicious food, moderate pricing depending on your perspective - give it a shot!"

  • "If you go to Distilled, you must order the wings. And get the large size (10) and not the small (5). You will want to have ten -- even if you don't eat all of them during your meal, they are still really wonderful the next day. The beer selection here is worthwhile, as are the dinner entrees. My husband always has the fried duck and waffles. I like the lobster roll, the burgers (I especially like the Turducken burger) -- even the little dish of popcorn they bring to the table is creative and tasty. It's nice to sit outside in the summer, but it's a really tight space and you often feel like you're about to knock something over. We live in the neighborhood and like to take people here and go when we want to treat ourselves well."

  • "The country fried duck with waffle and maple syrup is a dish that has to be tried at least once in your life. Really friendly staff, casual atmosphere but seriously good food"
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "Some of the best food I've ever had! The wings are incredible, and the duck and waffles dish is amazing. The menu, on the whole, is creative without being pretentious, and everything there is familiar enough to be comfortable but different enough to whet your appetite for adventure. Steak and tuna tartare are great. Shane Lyons is a wizard!"
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "I'll make this brief. Food Exceptional! Drinks and even anything you can come up with amazing! But most of all the service is phenomenal!! Managers Noah and Stephen are super attentive and make the whole experience so much better."

  • "No complicated long menu with 100 ingredients. Just simple American food that taste great and very addictive. The day after eating at Distilled, I get that same cravingl feeling I get after eating sushi. I gotta have more."

  • "Took my bf here for birthday dinner after reading good reviews. All of the food / drinks were great -- we had several types of mead, wings, ribs, fried duck & waffle, and cauliflower app. The wings were especially amazing! Will definitely be back."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "We found this place through other reviewers, but it was an awesome find. The place oozed charisma, and the food was simply amazing. The ribs literally fell off the bone, and to top it off the manager/owner came to our table and personally poured ussome bitters to go with our dessert. Overall one of the best places to eat I have been to in quite some time."

  • "The chicken Wings were excellent. Best lobster roll ever"

  • "This was our first trip to Distilled and we were thrilled! The food was awesome and service was great. The chef is from our hometown and he was delightful to to talk to and very welcoming. I had the ribs and the rub on them was fabulous. We had a party of 6 and everyone felt well fed and happy! We will certainly return."

  • "I have been here twice now and enjoyed both visits. The bartenders make great craft cocktails and there is a unique choice of spirits here. There is very tasty complimentary popcorn both at the bar and at the table. My husband and I had the chicken wings appetizer and we both had burgers as our entree. All of the food was excellent. Our server was very friendly and accommodating. "

  • "Get the wings, get the onion rings, and get a Hadley Fox cocktail. The service is so above par I would have forgotten what I are had it not been so freaking delicious. "
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "Kale salad and dressing divine, and so is the duck on waffle. Wine selection first class, and service attentive and very friendly. However, a/c was blasting beyond acceptable level"
    Dined on 5/28/2014
  • "Distilled was so great to have brunch with a group of friends on Sunday. The food selection is unique and delicious and the drinks are great too! The staff was so friendly and helpful as well. I will definitely be returning!"

  • "brunch was a bit uneven. i had a bowl of mushrooms topped with eggs and toast, and it was delicious and luxurious, and I would eat it again anytime. However, the other orders at the table were not as successful. The BLT fell apart halfway through, and the bowl of greens with eggs and toast was swimming in too much liquid, making the bottom of the bowl a bit unpleasant. drinks were fine. had more of a bar atmosphere, and i would try this again in the evening sometime. service was good."
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "I love this place!! The cocktails are always super creative and the food has a really unique approach to comfort food. You wont find these dishes in your mother's chicken! I literally have almost had everything on the menu.. never have been disappointed. "

  • "Food lacked flavor. Dessert was horrendous.... Sous chef was obnoxiously screaming orders"
    Dined on 5/12/2014
  • "We've dined at Distilled 4 times. I recall really liking it a lot the first couple of times. Then the past 2 times, seems like there's been a noticeable decline. It's still good, and in a neighborhood that really lacks affordable dining options, its above average but i believe management needs a good kick in the butt. The first few months the place was jumping' couldn't get in. More recently, it's quieted down. You can definitely walk-in for brunch. Recommended: the bloody Mary's, Burgers and Duck and waffles (heavy but tasty) Not recommended: salmon egg scramble, poached eggs and greens. Staff was about average in attentiveness. The music was really terrible last time -- 80's movie theme songs -- probably the ultimate deal breaker"
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "I came here from mother's day and it was wonderful. Luckily it was a nice day so we were able to sit outside. All the food was great, but I would say my favorite was the fried duck and french toast waffles. I will definitely be coming back"
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "This was the best meal out a restaurant that I have had in ages. I brought my friends along for the ride, they'd never been but I have many times. They absolutely loved it!"
    Dined on 4/22/2014
  • "the crew over at Distilled are amazing. the food is simple and sophisticated. very palate pleasing and deliciously flavored. i've been to this place close to a dozen times and it keeps getting better every time."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "All of the food we had was amazing (liver mousse, wings, country fried duck & waffles)! I would order any of them again. Our waitress, Julia, was so friendly and gave the best recommendations! And the owners Stephen & Exec Chef Shane were so hospitable and welcoming. We'll definitely be coming back for the chef's table or just to have another amazing dinner."
    Dined on 4/17/2014
  • "This is one of my new favorite places in the city. I had the honor of sitting at the Chefs Bar and Chef Shane was amazing! Great food and very entertaining to watch. The chicken wings are off the charts good!! Can't wait until the sauce is available at local grocery. The duck and waffle was also a big hit. Great flavors and great presentation! This is a no-brainer... You must try this place. You will be glad that you did!! Cocktails were also amazing!!"

  • "The wings were absolutely delicious... and the duck and waffles were an interesting combination."
    Dined on 4/7/2014
  • "Most of the food is great - the free popcorn that's refilled as many times as you want is addictive, we had at least three bowls. We got a bunch of appetizers and shared, and most were excellent. If you're looking for hot wings, you will be disappointed by their wings. They're weirdly candied. The beer selection is excellent, and the bartenders are friendly."
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "Very interesting menu. Food was good, not great, but good. Service was friendly but a little off. Our server asked if we wanted more popcorn and we said yes but never received. Has to ask the bus boy to find the server when we needed the check. She was very friendly but again off. Beer selection was nice and had really good tap beer."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Friday night dinner. Super cool drinks, very eclectic and fun. Obviously busy for a Friday night so be prepared for a little extra wait for service - certainly not a detractor from the experience. Be there with friends or someone you want to talk with personally and it's perfect. Interesting wings and Duck Burger (in a good way). Go, have fun and enjoy!"

  • "We were staying in TriBeCa and booked ahead for this restaurant. We were glad we did because the restaurant was very busy and deservedly so. We arrived quite a bit earlier than our reservation time but it was no problem to sit down earlier. The service was very friendly and the team were very knowledgeable about both the food and the wine, even telling us what the ingredients were in the yummy wings. The food was delicious and the wine list full of interesting American small vineyard wines. Delicious Chardonnay from Strawberry Ridge in Connecticut. Chicken wings to share, Scallops and Porgy as entrees - all very good. Would recommend!"
    Dined on 4/2/2014
  • "This place has a great vibe (hip, youthful, great decor), good service (super friendly, there when you want them). Food is really good (although my friend thought the wings were overrated). Very creative and delicious cocktail menu. I was enjoying myself and my drinks so much that I kept drinking well beyond my 2 drink limit. Then after we left I noticed I didn't feel a thing (I'm a total lightweight and usually feel one drink and have a real buzz on after 2). Seriously nothing. This has never happened before. I felt like I should write them a thank you note the next morning when I had no hangover (again usually just 2 drinks requires 2 Advil). But at $14 a pop, I also want a refund."

  • "Love this place. They've got tasty, interesting food, but they also have some of the friendliest people working there... a rare combination in Tribeca."

  • "Nice ambience. Staffs are friendly and courteous. I wasn't impressed by any of their food. Most of them are on the salty side. Every food was overpowered by one particular flavor and couldn't taste ingredients' . I liked the pate, but I'd suggest them to serve with bread."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "I thought my second visit to Distilled couldn't possibly be as fantastic as the first. But it was. Everybody treats you like an old friend, for one thing — when you ask your server for a mead recommendation, you get the feeling she really considers what you'll like best. Also, both nights I dined there, one of the restaurant's partners came over and asked my party for feedback. The high-end comfort food is actually addictive, I think. All day long, after you dine at Distilled, you'll find yourself thinking obsessively about the duck waffles .... and that unbelievable broth the mussels come in ..... and the wings .... and the cauliflower and B. sprouts .... and the s'mores ...... I can't wait to go back a third time."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "My coworkers and I ate here one night for dinner and have come back almost once a week since! The food and drinks are great but even more outstanding is the service. It's rare to find a restaurant in NYC that offers a truly personable dining experience; we felt like regulars even during our first time at Distilled. Highly recommend trying anything on the menu because it's all amazing but my personal favorites are the brussel sprouts w/ duck bacon & the duck + waffle dish."

  • "I have wanted to try this restaurant for a while now... I wish I did not. The way to sum of the food in one word was SALTY. I have never in my life wrote a negative review about a restaurant in my life. I was truly disappointed. We tried the buffalo wings, I had the burger which I asked for medium and it came out rare so rare that I could not even eat it. My date had the fried duck and waffles she said it was so salty also. The last thing we tried was the crispy brussels sprouts which was basically a bowl of salt. I love Tribeca but I will never go back to that restaurant ever again. The best part of the night was the Narragansett beer. Very sad I would not recommend anyone go this place."
