A diverse menu, very good wine selection, and excellent service make this place a step above most anything else in Lexington. It’s definitely in that elite group with Tony’s but with a different feel and creative menu to give it a little bit of a competitive edge at a reasonable price. We will absolutely be back for business meals and special occasions. Thank you Kasey!

Food was amazing! Had the cheese plate with fried cheese curds, goat cheese, blue cheese, strawberries and crackers. For our dinner, we both got the porcini dry rub filet, so good! And the cocktails were good, too!

Food delicious, impecable service. We were seated in the bar, and unfortunately, one customer who was seated at the bar carried on a conversation that could easily be heard in the entire room, and this went on for our entire dinner. But as I said, the food and service were outstanding.

The food was unbelievable—highly recommend going here for any occasion! We came for a swanky bachelorette dinner and we couldn’t have asked for more. Out server, Kasey was also incredible... such a great experience!

I will certainly allow a long period for them to practice at being an open
restaurant. We loved this place before the pandemic but it has fallen
further than I would have expected. Our server KC was wonderful . The
experience of the food and drinks was awful. By far the worst meal I have
ever had there. Short menu poorly done. Tom

I wish I could give the food and the service 10/5 stars. It was the best meal we've had in forever. I can't wait to go back. Pro tip - go on Tuesday, when Ben Lacy is playing in the lounge. Wow.

We enjoyed the smoked pork belly: great flavors, particularly the roasted peppers and caper sauce. It was slightly overcooked l, particularly near the top fatty layer. Then the farmers salad and Caesar salad. Farmers was perfect, Caesar needed a bit more “kick” but loved the whole anchovies. Then the duck breast was great but the leg was pretty dry and over cooked. Cocktails (particularly the black manhattan) were all great as well. Dessert was a chocolate mousse with brownie on top and it was fabulous as well.

We were there to give our opinions on Distilled as our daughter is considering this restaurant for a rehearsal dinner for 60+ people. Our favorites were the duck confit, gazpacho and the lettuces. The food, service and atmosphere were all exceptional. Happy to report that this was a win and are thrilled Distilled at the Sire will be the venue of choice. Can’t wait to go again!
