Loved the setting; service was outstanding. Food was tasty - would have preferred being able to select sides from main & would have loved a traditional pumpkin pie option. Also, a time option of 3pm would also have been nice. Slightly overpriced. All in all a great option for a holiday meal while traveling away from home.

One of the better meals I have had in a while Service was very good. The waiter could use a little more training in wine service, but not a serious problem.

Very nice restaurant.

I read good reviews, but the food exceeded all expectations. I have dined at far more expensive restaurants whose food was not as good.

Just the usual superb. It was quiet for the first time ever and that enhanced it all. Our waiter

Fantastic from beginning to end- attentive service from everyone, Casey was our server, she was knowledgeable and helpful, really aware of when we needed something, and very respectful in taking care of us as we talked business. Food and beverage were all outstanding, and atmosphere is great! Most of us hadn’t been here, and we’ll all be back!

This was absolutely the best dining experience I have had. We had a reservation at 9:45, right before closing as this was the fastest I could get down there after work for the start of our vacation. The waiter was amazing, he may have been the owner, though I am not sure and regretfully neglected to get his name. He took great care of us and made sure to keep the guys in the kitchen long enough to get our food made. It was definitely not a rush job either, they did fantastic. I had the chicken thigh carbonara and my wife had the steak with a side potato mash. I have not eaten better food in my entire life. I have had a few other restaurants stand out for their food like this in the past, but Distilled blew the rest away. It is admittedly expensive, but for what we got and even relative to the expectations of the cost I was still blown away. Thank you Distilled for a great opening to our weekend vacation away.

Delicious every time. The halibut appetizer is my daughter’s favorite. My son loves the double decker burger. They are always accommodating to my wife’s food allergies. They’ve got a “you can’t go wrong” kind of menu. Definitely one of the top restaurants in Lexington.

Tempura Halibut & Meatball appetizers were outstanding. The Porcini Crusted Filet was as tender as any filet I have ever had. Topping it off with a fine tasting bourbon didn't hurt.

This was a combo work trip/dinner date with my wife. Daniel was our server; he did an awesome job.
The pork tenderloin was incredible, as was the NY strip.
Lady Godiva drink for her and Vanilla Old Fashioned were stellar. Never had heard of Okinawa sweet potatoes —- amazing! Thanks for a nice evening.

Our experience was great. It did take a while to get our food, bit we anticipated a crowd. It was opening day at Keeneland Race Track, and the restaurant was full. It was a bit loud because of the number of people. The food was outstanding, and the service was excellent.

Everything about this restaurant was excellent. Pictures online are not indicative of the actual ambiance, which was warm and inviting. And the food was excellent - best meal I’ve had in a very long time! Highly recommend this restaurant.

Waht a dissappoiontment that this lovely restaurant has such ppor service. We were there on a busy Thursday night. The manager was gone by 8, leaving no one over their mid-twenties in charge. The waiterwho took our order didn't write anything down and didn't remember our order. He had to come back twisce to confirm. He knew next to nothing about the wine list, and didn't ahve anyone to ask for help. He failed to srve all the customers with the first bottle, and then served the second without offering a taste. My salad was inedibly spicy, something he provided no warning about. When I left it mostly uneaten, he explained that there was a chilly pepper on the menu so I should ahve known it was spicy. The rest of the meal went on like that. When I asked for a manager, I was told there was none on site. I won't be going back.
