Warm potato and salmon was pretty concentrated in terms of flavoring and the fish was a bit too fatty. Not the best salmon by far. On the other hand, the shrimp ceviche was tasty.

Best features are great selection of in-house brews an serving options. Some more unique items of recent years are gone (mussels, dishes using duck confit, and less-sweet desserts). Seems like the more interesting chef is now gone. Benches in booths are too low. Pleasant staff.

I didnt think bacon could get much better... but the beer battered bacon is incredible!! I had the skirt steak. It was cooked perfectly and was wonderfuly tender and flavorful. My wife had the sword fish. She said it was fantastic. I tried a couple different beers, all of which were wonderful. Great good! Great service!

I went here for my graduation party, and I am happy I choose Distel. The presentation of the food and the taste of it was 5 star material. Also the ambiance at the restaurant was great.

We had a large group with some who had to leave early. Our server did an outstanding job of taking care of everyone's needs, got the order right, delivered the meals for those who had to leave early, and the food was delicious. Everyone was happy with their food and had a good time. I was impressed!

I went to Destihl for the first time with friends who frequented the establishment. The food was QUALITY; very flavorful and aesthetically pleasing in presentation.
I would highly recommend this restaurant!

I don't know if it's a problem with open table or the restaurant but when we got there they did not have our reservations. Luckily they did have open table so everything was good from then on.

We dined outside and enjoyed watching the people going by. The food was very good and the beer was better. The desserts looked magnificent, but we didn't have room left to try them!

Menu good and somewhat innovative; beer offerings are great. Servers try a little too hard, but college kids need to earn money!

I choose Destihl mostly because of the menu. I have one vegetarian and one vegan in the family. They were both able to pick a meal without just getting a salad. I was also impressed with a call from the restaurant verifying that we would be coming and if there were any special needs. I asked about any other options for the vegan and the manager knew his menu and what could be converted to a vegan dish. That was a bonus. The different beer sample was fun for those in my party that like beer. I would go back and recommend other.

We had a group of twelve visit Destihl this past Saturday. It has a great menu with knowledgeable staff who are quick to assist you. Destihl also has an outstanding microbrew selection. We had a great time!!

Chicken pesto sandwich and Thai pork pizza were both excellent. Served quickly, hot and fresh tasting. Wait staff found just the right attention level, always available but not overbearing. Can't wait to go back after work so that I can catch up on Destihl's fine selection of microbrews.

This is our go to restaurant to take out of town guests. It always delivers a great meal with great service.

We were one of the first to arrive when they opened. All but one table was open and they seated us right by the entry in the flow of traffic. Twice I got bumped by their wait staff but we could hear the conversation at the hostess table. I asked to be moved and they were accomendating. Much nicer location and brighter to. Not sure if we just were not hungry but it seemed nothing on the menu appealed to the 4 of us.

Have been here before and have had better experience. Was there at opening, got seated promptly and server took our order after a few minutes, then we waited for 45 minutes for our food to come out - and the restaurant was not crowded. I am vegetarian and asked for the bacon off my salad, but it came with it on anyway. Food is good but this time the service left something to be desired.

What a wonderful and unique menu, need to go back so I can try more things! Both our meals were delicious and so fresh tasting.

We were down in Champaign for U of I's Mom's Weekend. We met with some friends for brunch on Saturday and decided to give this place a chance. We had heard both good and bad things about it but when looking at the menu we saw the variety would please everyone's palate. The food and the service could not be better!!! I would rate this place high on my list of places to eat and would recommend it for anyone visiting Champaign.

Food and beer are excellent. Staff went out of their way to accomodate us. We went back the next night
