My favorite restaurant in nyc.
Every city needs a go to place like this.
Really great I enjoyed everything
I love this restaurant and my daughter and I basically drove 450 miles because I was craving their chicken wings and Country Fried Duck and Waffle. The food is incredible, atmosphere is casual (just the way I like it), drinks are well made, and the service is outstanding.
There is no pretense in this place, and every person working there looks out for the customer, and also for each other, which is very refreshing to see. This is teamwork at it's best.
If you visit lower Manhattan, you must visit Distilled. The value and superior service is something difficult to find in NYC.
The service at our table was great, but one of the bartenders from before we were seated had a real attitude problem and was a huge jerk. The kitchen worked to make a vegan option for a vegan in our party. The food was fine, but it didn’t blow me away.
Overall everything was outstanding. Ambiance, service, recommendations, the food & drinks.
Here is an added perk too - they give you their signature popcorn as a starter & to go if you would like! Wow! Delicious!
Long been a favorite spot in the area. Great vibe, very TriBeCa (vibrant but not bursting at the seams). The burger is fantastic, and, of course, the free popcorn with the house magic dust is amazing. Pretty sure I have 2 bowls to myself everytime I come. Highly recommend!
We thought the food at Distilled was good. But, the service was terrible. No one ever came by to see if we wanted more drinks. Getting our check took at least 20 minutes. Why don't restaurants put more staff on when they know it is going to be busy?
Great service and fantastic food at the bar, excellent local beer on tap...great place
We had an amazing birthday dinner at Distilled NY. We did the Chef's Choice menu. I was bowled over by the unique flavors and textures. From start to end the courses were perfectly sized and delicious. I want a vat of the pumpkin soup!! The chef's hands-on approach was really appreciated (as were the special birthday treats). The Spiked Pink Lemonade slushie was also a hit!
Wanted a nice breakfast before going to a matinee show. Very friendly and the bloody marys and simosa drinks were great. Interesting food choices. Tried the duck with waffle and was what it says it was. Next time try something else. Very helpful and friendly staff
Distilled wings were great. Brussels and duck/waffle combo left lots to be desired. Restaurant was not busy on Friday night and closed well before advertised time. Servers were nice and fairly attentive. Bartender's attempt at a classic old-fashioned didn't hit the mark.
We couldn't wait to go back here! The chef's pick menu is ALWAYS outstanding!! The staff were wonderful and friendly, the drinks were delicious. The wine was superb. Cannot say enough good things about this place!!
Wanted to like this restaurant, but was very disappointed with my visit. We went for brunch specifically to order the Restaurant Week. It was only 1pm, and they had already sold out of the country duck and waffle. Considering it is a popular dish, would think that the restaurant would have prepared better, especially since they were participating RW. Felt like a bait and switch to get us in the door. I ordered the salmon omelette, which was actually very good. But was very disappointing experience
We went on restaurant week for a sunday brunch, and everything was great, the food and the service.
The complimentary popcorn, which is provided in lieu of bread, is a cute touch and tastes pretty good. The entrees are phenomenal, and we had a hard time deciding which of the plates we ordered was the best because they were all so great.
The place is pretty loud and the tables are relatively small. It doesn't seem like the restaurant has A/C because it was very warm, (it was just as hot as the outside, if not warmer). The food is worth it, and the service is good.
Overly salty dishes
Fun atmosphere. Tasting menu very inventive
Sat outside for brunch and had a great meal. You can't beat free seasoned popcorn the second you sit down? Our server was very attentive. When we ordered our cocktails, the "slushies" were not frozen yet since the restaurant had just opened. Our server recommended something else to drink while we waited (which we took her up on) and then brought us our originally ordered drinks when we were ready. Then gave us those drinks complimentary since we had to wait for them. Food was delicious, and the outside seating area was fabulous on a nice summer day in the city !
I came here with my boyfriend and we had a chef's choice 5 course meal with 4 shot whiskey flight. All 4 courses were really great.... especially the smoked duck. I arrived early and had a 40 minute wait until my guest arrived. The bar staff was EXCELLENT. They were incredibly friendly with quick service. Once seated, our waitress was also excellent. As a couple that eats out a lot, this is some of the best service I have had in NY and would definitely go back. Hands down, one of my favorite meals in the 9 years I've lived here.
Sat outside, good location but uneven tables on the porch. The food was mediocre, just didn't have a ton of flavor and was very generic - I had a standard breakfast option with eggs and potatoes and bacon and the potatoes were undercooked and the bacon had an odd taste to it. Rest of my table had the breakfast sandwich which they said was average
Great service though, friendly waitress
Food was excellent, everything from the popcorn served as you're seated to dessert.
Distilled NY is a great restaurant for a chill and relaxed dinner. We got together with friends and arrived earlier than our reservation, so we hung at the bar for a quick drink. Expert bartender, knew his stuff and was friendly without being overbearing. The wine options are all very nice, but a bit on the pricey side.
It was a lovely evening, so when our friends got there, we moved outside to eat al fresco. West Broadway is a very quiet place at that location so there was no issue with traffic noise or other interruptions. There were also families and dogs sitting nearby - a true neighborhood place.
Our waitress was super attentive, yet invisible, a real skill. The menu is minimal, but wide ranging. We all got what we wanted and everything was delicious. The burger was juicy, the soft shell crab sandwich was crispy and light, the chocolate cake was a perfect sweet ending to a relaxing evening.
Summer's just getting started, we'll be back!
Found the restaurant on open table and we were so happy! Excellent food and service! Will be back!
I've been the biggest fan of distilled since Day 1 and have NEVER been disappointed by this place... but the mushroom enchiladas today were very confusing and definitely (sad to say!) the most disappointing, unenjoyable and overpriced meal I've had in a while. Nonetheless, service remains spectacular and super accommodating - just wondering how and why an $18 platter of soggy one-note enchiladas with no texture or nuance in flavor remains on the menu... did they change up the chef??? I only forced myself to finish them out of politeness for our incredibly sweet bartender/server!!! Sorely regret not getting my fave - the franklin burger instead, and for only $1 more! So much better bang and flavorful buck for something that's not just a pile of soggy kimchi, mushrooms and cheese.
Service wasn't as good as last time. Food was so-so
Great brunch! French toast waffles yummy eggy deliciousness. Such friendly staff to our toddler who got free gourmet rosemary Mac and cheese with fruit. Biscuits and gravy also hit the spot. And of course the complimentary popcorn...addictive.
Compared to other restaurants in the area that Kitchen stays open until 11pm. We found this spot on a whim after the kitchen for our first choice closed early for the holiday weekend. The waitress was very attentive and sweet. Will definitely come back for another girls night out and even for a dinner date.
Excellent food and even with a large group ahead of us, our service was great. Drinks were delicious and the popcorn is a wonderful surprise!
Great service for the 1st half of our meal but attention of wait staff dropped off towards the end.
Food was good but service (the kitchen mostly I think) was super slow. Also miss the BLT sandwich - please bring it back!
Great food, excellent and attentive service. Loved the mushroom dishes, fresh pasta and the lemon dessert.
Will definitely go back
good wings, country fried duck on waffle and amazing popcorn.
It's hard to move past the salads and the burger- they are splendid. The preserved lemon salad was simple and amazing. The kale salad was delightful. You can switch the cheese on the burger to cheddar, and the tots make it terrific. We've been twice in 3 days!
We love this place for brunch and dinner and go all the time. I'm seriously addicted to the popcorn.
Always have great food when we dine there-service is always great as well!!!!
Food was great. Atmosphere was amazing. Just wish our waitress wasn't in such a bad mood. But we all have our days.
They have a great bourbon menu,
Chill atmosphere. Spend as much time as you'd like drinking and eating. It looked like it was a busy night but no one rushed us by asking 20 times what else we'd like to order.
The menus is ok. A big disappointment was "spiced nuts" that turned out to be sugar coated peanut. I didn't make a big deal out of it but we barely touched them. The description on the menus was definitely inaccurate.
Great place. Easy to get to from midtown. Pork chop was delish!
As always, the staff and ambiance at DistilledNY are great way to spend a Friday night with friends! The chicken wings are always a must, the duxelle and toast is delicious, and the spiked pink lemonade goes down super easy!
Came here for a group dinner on a Friday night. Lively but not overly crowded. Table was ready early and service was attentive, though gave us plenty of time to decide. My only quibble was with the pricey tuna tataki, which was over-priced and way over-salted.
