Another wonderful experience! Waiter (Paget) was amazing. Food was delicious. There were 6 of us and we all enjoyed our meals. The dining room is so beautiful.
Have to say I am sad that the Gratz Park Inn is now a modern hotel, but the restaurant is still amazing.

Outstanding NY strip and rabbit stew. We loved it! Heavy pour on our cocktails, we appreciated it. The desert, not much to it. There is a reason they give you a small spoon. Can't wait to go back.

Service was almost non existent. Waiter never brought us our drinks, forgot the salads and was unavailable most of the evening. The food was just average. The menu was pricey. Would not recommend this restaurant at this time. This restaurant has seen better days.

My husband and I have dined several times now at Distilled at the newly renovated The Sire Hotel. The entire experience is just outstanding. The food is perfect. The menu changes seasonally. And the service is excellent. We have had the pleasure of having Nate as our server the past two times. He is simply outstanding. Can't say enough good things about him. He remembered us from a month ago. Our names, likes, dislikes, allergies, food preferences. Overall, lovely meal and experience. Our new favorite. We plan return many times!!!

Lovely restaurant. Had not been to Distilled in a couple of years. We started with the steak tartare that was delicious! We split a Caesar salad that had a delightful house made dressing. My husband had the strip steak and frites. Steak was seasoned well and tender. He is not a huge fan of frites but said they were some of the best he has tasted. I had the filet with Brussels sprouts and Okinawa sweet potatoes. The entire entree was wonderful, steak cooked to perfection. Our waitress was excellent! We will definitely not wait 2 years to return.

Delicious entrees beautifully served. Our group had duck breast, pork tenderloin, and caramelized cauliflower. All dishes were superb. We split two desserts - cheesecake and apple crisp. Both were surprising in presentation ( kumquats on cheesecake) and scrumptious. This is a terrific place if you want to actually talk with the people at your table while enjoying a fine meal. Oh yes, and Wednesday is half-price wine night so we got a bottle of the best French white on the menu. Cheers!

Tuesday night.
Had cocktails and dinner. The bar was small. The cocktails were well crafted. Service was very nice.

Dining was very nice setting. Was not real busy so it was quiet. T
Furnishings and flooring seemed to promote quietness.

We had burgers and Halibut tempura bites. All were very good.

Would recommend and will try again.

The thing holding this place back is not the kitchen, but instead the front of house. Very sad, the food is so amazing that I’d probably go back, but that is the only reason.

Fantastic. Service was wonderful, food was on point. It is uncommon to find a non-steakhouse that can so clearly define the difference between a Medium and Medium Rare steak (which my gf and I ordered).

Coming from fine dining I usually look for things I would do differently but this place left me struggling. If I had to make one remark, it would be that I thought the steak knife looked cheap.

Great experience, would go again without question.
