We went to Distil for first time during Milwaukee's Downtown Dining Week. What a find! We'll definitely be back. This is a beautiful restaurant/bar - like the vibe there. Both our food and waitress were outstanding. We both had the Classic Old-Fashioned - very good.

Good service except our "mixologist apprentice" (?) had no clue as i watched a "senior mixologist" painstakingly show him how to make our special drink. When it was finally done, the martini glass was only half full and the drink was luke warm. And that...More
