Screaming baby interrupted then atmosphere. Otherwise food was delicious and service was good.
Came for brunch to watch the Rugby with some friends & had a great experience. They were very accommodating with seating, gave us a good view of the TVs and also let us move when the AC was too much. Food & drinks were delicious, service was great & we would definitely return.
Hit this place before going to see Wicked at the Gershwin. Liked the low key but swanky vibe... especially in the front bar room which was buzzing. We ate in the back. Great drink menu and huge beer selection. The salmon BLT was awesome and so were the chicky sliders! I’d come back here even just to hang in the bar! Fun time and we were in and out fast with enough time to walk over to the theatre!
Great brunch!! Service was spot on.
Get together with friends and us wanting to try something new ! Great place and awesome atmosphere.
The Distillery atmosphere is local and pub style - If you're looking for a casual place to eat with excellent food, this is the place to go. ,The food and drinks were amazing and the staff was attentive. Each of the craft cocktails we ordered had a fun presentation and all of the food we ordered was delicious. We went for a quick pre-show meal and it did not disappoint! Highly recommended.
Dinner before a show with my girls
I was pleasantly surprised . The place was pub like but the food was very good for bar type food. Value was good and you got 10% off an entree if you showed a theatre ticket for that day from new world stage.
Superb service...delicious food...best bloody mary!!!
Great place to eat. Good food and drinks. Staff friendly and accommodating.
We enjoyed refreshing gin cocktails to start the evening. The burrata and fried pickles were delicious appetizers. Loved the restaurant's atmosphere. Service was timely and friendly. Highly recommend.
Great date restaurant close to all the theaters especially New World Stages where we were seeing Jersey Boys after dinner. Energetic bar in the front but the restaurant area separate and quiet. Great service, great comfort food and moderately priced. I am definitely coming back again!
Loved the menu! Fantastic value for NYC
Gin Mare cocktail was delicious, and the coffee-rubbed skirt steak was even better than I expected.
Great happy hour with great service!
The food is quite underwhelming. The cocktails are fantastic however. I’d expect better bites, on par with the quality of their cocktails as opposed to saggy bar bites.
party of 4: grabbed a quick meal before a show and everything was enjoyed by all. fried pickles for the table were a hit, drinks=yum, and the short rib grilled cheese was delicious--i was glad for the greens on it to help lighten an otherwise heavy sandwich. loved the vibes in the cozy back dining room and will definitely revisit.
The perfect brunch to spend our last day in the city! Food and drinks were amazing and the staff/ambiance felt so comfortable and warm. Can’t wait to come back!
It was our first time eating at The Distillery. The food was excellent , the ambiance was very nice and the service was excellent. Great wait staff. The French Toast bites were awesome. We will be back.
The drinks and presentation of said drinks were wonderful. I loved the glasses they used and the waiter was great! However, the food was subpar. I have the short rib grilled cheese and it had absolutely no flavor. My boyfriend had the Salmon BLT and said the same thing. Cool place but not great food.
Great pre show venue or somewhere to meet friends for after work cocktails
Food was sub par
The drinks were amazing, food was fresh and delicious with a nice variety for those that prefer meat free. Loved the decor, never felt rushed by the friendly and attentive staff. What a lovely find in NYC! On the list of "must go back", when we return to the city.
Everything was great!!
We had brunch here before seeing a Broadway show and really enjoyed the food and atmosphere. Our waiter was very attentive and helped us finish on time. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
Great food, great place. Will definitely go back and recommend to others.
We made a reservation for dinner after looking at reviews online. When we walked in, we looked at each other and said “are we sure this is the right place?” The place doesn’t really look like the photos. Disappointing for a date night and being from out of town. Our server was great. But the food wasn’t great. We spent a lot of money on food that we didn’t like/ barely ate. Drinks were good though, except the beer that we ordered was labeled as being 16 oz and was served in an 8 oz glass. Overall, we left hungry and disappointed.
Great place. My wife had the mimosa flight and loved it. I had the smoked old fashioned and I enjoyed it. Not worth$14 but good. The Lobster MAC and Cheese is outstanding as was my wife’s chicken and waffles. A little loud because of a large group but otherwise a very good brunch.
I would definitely go again.
Service was food, food was enjoyable.
If you're looking for a place to grab a drink this is probably more for you. If you want a nice dinner out, this is most likely not the place to choose. When we walked in and told the host we had a reservation, they were very rude to us. I shouldn't say rude, but - they were not very polite.
Our regular server was much nicer and much more polite. They weren't necessarily very attentive to the table, especially considering we were the only ones in the restaurant part of the place. The food runners were the most polite and most attentive. The food itself was okay. Nothing really to complain about. The food tasted fine, but the price per meal did not match the quality.
While I wouldn't say we had an unpleasant experience, there are so many other restaurants in the area where the value for the price is better, and the staff treats you like you're welcome and not a disruption to their day.
Sat at the bar. Food was good, as was the service. Cajun shrimp app and the skirt steak entree were very good. Would definitely go back
We Loved this brunch. Waiters were very attentive to our requests.
My new NYC go to place. Great variety on the menu to appeal to all tastes. The food is fantastic and good sized portions. Wait Staff is knowledgeable and guide you on what to order. Skillet Chicken, Pasta, Steak Sandwich all GREAT. My second time there and I will be back again.
Wonderful experience, highly recommend for a pre theatre meal. Fast, upbeat, and friendly.
Fish and chips were tasty and cocktails were sublime. Delish
Great food, great service, not too expensive. We went as a small group. They were accommodating when our party of 5 turned into 6 and a baby at the last minute. We ordered our entrees and drinks. We thought our waitress was just trying to upsell us on an extra entree to share as an appetizer (french toast bites), but she was right - they were delicious and a good option to share (it was a big portion). I definitely recommend this restaurant and I'm looking forward to returning!
We ate here with our teenagers before our second thwarted night for Harry Potter. We wanted a place we know the neighbors eat. Great food, the short rib and grilled cheese sandwich my daughter is still talking about. The picture doesn’t do it justice.
Loved this restaurant! Food and drinks were great and so was the ambiance. We will be back:)
We went to the Distillery tonight while in New York for a few days. This was an amazing find. We got the fried pickles (the breading is amazing.), the Chicky sliders, and the chicken and waffles. Everything came out quickly and delicious. The waiter was very kind and gave great recommendations and was very friendly. We had gone to many tourist traps sadly on our trip and this was a breath of fresh air. Great prices, great food, great drinks, better ambiance.
Great as usual
Great pre-theater casual location. Many options to satisfy all tastes! Great burgers
