Food was amazing. Service was excellent. The smell of cigarette smoke was pretty bad when we first arrived. It dissipated throughout the dinner.

The food was very good, staff, not so much. And they need to tell patrons that in a quiet supposedly fine dining restaurant, to stay off their cell phones talking at the top of their lungs!

I liked the classy look of the restaurant but personally, I would not return to try other dishes. The braised rabbit had little flavor unless you tried it with the gravy. Even then, the gravy overpowered all other flavors. On the other hand, the caramel chocolate tart was fantastic! The service was also very kind and timely.

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.

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!
