Distilled at The Sire Hotel
Book your next event with us
Coming in for an anniversary dinner on a cold Sunday evening, we were there pretty much by ourselves to start. Our server was quick and competent, and answered all our questions. The menu is fairly small (which we like), but the dishes run the gamut of proteins, and each had plenty of accompaniments. We had pork tenderloin and snapper, both delicious and well prepared. We'll be back!
Smaller restaurant was good for my parents' anniversary dinner since they wanted something quiet. It was almost empty at 6:00 when we arrived, but was quite full by the end, and talking was a little harder then. Service was wonderful and the food tasted very good. The bill added up by the time we all had alcoholic drinks, shared some appetizers, and got entrees and dessert. Glad we came; it was just what we were looking for.
Excellent food, service, and atmosphere. Highly recommend this restaurant for a great dinner!
Typically, I sit in the main dining room. However, for NYE, I had made a reservation and they moved myself and my friend to the bar area. The service was horrible and our food was just mediocre. Very bland. The other people around us were having similar experiences, commonly sending food back. Unimpressed.
Fantastic food, awesome service. Great experience!
Consistently delicious. The menu features consistent favorites- but always something a bit unexpected.
We enjoyed the halibut tempura, meatballs & scallops followed by snapper, pork tenderloin with butternut squash ravioli, & fried chicken. No complaints!
Everything was wonderful and the food was delicious!
Food was fabulous! Highly recommend the meatballs over grits. Casey our server was wonderful. She went over and beyond to make our birthday celebration special!
The restaurant was super quiet. No holiday decorations in the restaurant or the hotel. Game going on in the bar. Hardly any customers in the bar on a Saturday night. Waited at least 10 minutes for a drink order with two bartenders. Finally got a drink, and then it was almost time for our reservation. Again, had to flag down a bartender for the check, and then waited forever for them to return. We had dinner in the main dining room. Food and service was good. It is just too quiet, though. How hard is it to have some interesting jazz or holiday music playing during the holidays.
We stayed at the Sire hotel and had heard great things about this restaurant. We were not disappointed! The food and service were top-notch. We will be back.
Distilled is consistently the best restaurant in Lexington. The staff is helpful and attentive, the quality and creativeness of each dish is unequalled, and the atmosphere is perfect for conversation.
A lovely meal in gorgeous surroundings. Attentive service rounds out the perfect dining experience.
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.
Excellent Service and unique entree choices - highly recommend.
Had a business meeting there. Food and service were amazing! I had the filet, medium rare.
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
Patrick was head of the pack.
Excellent service and food! Perfect place for an intimate date or evening with friends!
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!
The drinks were very good and well worth the money... the food was delicious and the ambience was very nice!!! Great service as well!
Love this restaurant. We try to go every time we get to Lexington. Our waiter was exceptional.
the food was amazing and we didn't have to wait an eternity to enjoy it!! We will be back soon.
The Food and Experience are Amazing! The menu remains fresh with timeless classics. It is so good, we drive an hour each way - once a month.
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.
The food was amazing! Our waiter, Nate, was very knowledgeable about the menu. His recommendations on desserts and bourbon were spot on. We had a fantastic experience!
Probably the best burger in Lexington.
Great food. Kasey was a most excellent server. Can't wait to go back.
Exceptional! Highly rec. For what you get, it was fairly priced
Great restaurant. Everything you would expect for elegant dining.
Wonderful service, delicious and creative food, and the decor was beautiful! We'll be back!
Lunch on a quick out of town trip
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.
Food was wonderful and the service was attentive and very helpful!
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.
Had the best server I think we ever had, my husband thinks the filet is the best in town and I agree!
The food was outstanding and ambiance beautiful! Loved it
Excellent food and service. The best restaurant in Lexington
Birthday dinner for family and it was phenomenal!! Both the food and the service are exceptional. Our favorite dining spot in Lexington.
