    The food was very good with a good variety. The mushroom risotto was excellent. The filet is a great price for the size and the cook was spot on. The filet did however lack in flavor, seemed like it was only seasoned with heavy amounts of black pepper. A little pat of herbed butter and some salt would’ve gone a long way. A beautiful atmosphere but a bit noisy. Overall a really good place - much needed upscale food for the area.

    We have been here several times now and each time has provided a different experience. One constant has been good service. Alex was extraordinary, Brittany was good, and Courtney was great! Samantha, who brought our food two of the times, was the highlight! Her smile and demeanor were amazing and she truly is an asset to your establishment. The food, most especially the strip steak and mashed potatoes, is delicious. Some of the selections are a bit over seasoned but very good. We’ll keep coming back.

    The restaurant and building are beautiful. This is our second time here and both times are underwhelming. We truly wanted to love it. The food is so disappointing. I think they are trying too hard and just can’t execute. I would definitely go back for a cocktail but not for the food

    Enjoyed a Sunday brunch with family at Cincinnati Distilling. The staff was friendly and the service outstanding. The atmosphere was casual and open with a lot of natural light. The food was very good. I recommend the burger and fries. Everyone enjoyed the cocktails -- a nice variety of classic and original drinks. My only recommendation is more signage to help people find the entrance.

    The filet was incredibly delicious! One of the best I’ve ever had! However, we were left underwhelmed with the rest of the evening. The charcuterie flavors were OK but had an odd ratio of carbs to cheese to meat, so we had lots of left over cheese and jam. We ordered their speciality drinks and they were just down right terrible. My husbands Manhattan tasted like straight fire ball and red hots. I had the Genuine Risk and it tasted like my kids nasty cough syrup. Needless to say the drinks were disappointing but the place is well designed and we had a cool table next to the distillery thing. Waitress and hostess were very nice.

    This was our first experience here. We loved the setting and how they kept some of the original stone structure. The service, drink menu and food were wonderful. My only suggestion would be to have more options for those who are vegetarians. We'll definitely go back.

Food was spot on. 3 apps and four entrees all prepared and tasted amazing. Multiple delicious hand crafted cocktails and craft beer!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

    We had a party of 8 and the crowd favorites were the fried chicken and the burger. We also tried a few of the specialty drinks and enjoyed them all. We couldn’t leave without trying a couple desserts. The warm chocolate chip cookies and the chocolate stout cake were both amazing. We will definitely be back.

    Very nice venue with a great history. Looking forward to warmer weather and evenings on the rooftop patio. The service was a little slow, but enjoyed exploring the whiskey and bourbon offerings created by Cincinnati Distilling. Short rib and filet were very nicely done.

    The restaurant and building had a lot to offer. The small art gallery and museum upstairs are great if there's a wait. The outdoor areas would be amazing in the summer. Food was good but definitely over priced. The whiskey flight had generous pours.

    What a wonderful experience we had at this new Cincinnati Distillery Tavern! Everyone we spoke to welcomed us like family, attended to our needs and gave perfect recommendations. We spent quite a bit of time meandering around the facility through the Sweet Shop, the gallery, the Nation’s Kitchen and to our final destination in the Tavern for the most delicious meal.

    Beginning to end was an outstanding experience. My Manhattan cocktail was delicious- full of complimentary flavors; my husband's gin martini was crisp and refreshing. From the deviled eggs to our entrees and dessert was great! Ingredients were fresh and well thought out. The service was great as well. Our server was very knowledgeable and gracious. It was a great first experience and look forward to our next visit. Highly recommend.

    The restaurant is beautiful and the decor is modern and very nice. I had high hopes. Unfortunately, I think they still have kinks to work out. All the food we had was super salty. Why would a burger be salty? Not sure we will be back anytime soon.

    A neat new dining and drinking establishment in old Milford. There is a more intimate bar area which you can eat as well as booths. The centrepiece of the main dining room is the copper still. The charcuterie board was excellent, we tried a flight of bourbon and whiskey’s which was fun. The menu is a little different which I like. Our server Tony what is one of the best I’ve ever had he was knowledgeable, attentive, patient and friendly. Would highly recommend

The upper levels include an art gallery and rooftop bar that will be great in the warmer weather. Pricing was fair especially for the quality of the food and drinks.

    Good overall. Will return. Would like to see the other/more options on the menu. The shrimp app and bread app were both delicious. I enjoyed my romanesco salad but the beets were missing. Fried chicken and short ribs were also very good. Service was knowledgeable and friendly though a little slow. We sat at a corner booth which was very cold, causing our hot food to cool too quickly.
