Lorenzo's Ristorante reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Bad service
    OpenTable Diner Since 2005
    Dined on 3/29/2014
    Food was good but service was bad. Breanna our waitress was very uninterested in waiting on us. Ordered ice tea and she took 15 minutes to get them without even coming to us and saying its coming but would you like a appetizer while your waiting. When she finally did show up to take our order never told us of any specials for the night. Wife ordered the caprese salad only and was going to order a main course after the salad but Breanna didn't bring it or ask when to bring it and only brought my salad first and didn't bring hers till I was served my main course. We were not asked if we wanted fresh ground pepper or fresh ground cheese yet in our area the other waiter did this for all his tables so my only thought was Breanna didn't care.

    I was celebrating my boyfriend getting into pharmacy school and this was the perfect place. The servers were extremely friendly and were knowledgeable of the menu and specials. I am not 21 so I did not interact with the waiter about the alcohol menu, but some of the tables around us did and all of the servers seemed to know a great deal about this area. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone.

    They were extremely busy because of NCAA tournament, but they had my reservation from Open Table and we were seated quickly with appropriate requested table and food was quite good. Service was as good as could be expected on a very busy night. Food was very good and the price was quite reasonable. I would recommend to friends and will go back again.

    Dined on 3/20/2014
    I found this restaurant through an online list and ended up being happier with the selection than I had expected--and I had expected a lot. The food was delicious--I had crab-encrusted sea bass--and the restaurant quiet enough that the five people at our table could converse easily. In fact, it was so good we went back the next night, too!

  • Fantastic Italian Restaurant
    NOFoodie
    Dined on 3/18/2014
    I was in town for a conference and wanted to find a restaurant that wouldn't be too loud so we could discuss business. I also wanted a restaurant that my clients wouldn't be able to stop talking about. Wanted my dinner to be memorable. The menu had a great selection and there were some incredible specials on the menu. I'm from New Orleans and it is hard to find restaurants in other cities that are comparable to what I have at home. Lorenzo's was a restaurant very similar to my favorite Italian restaurants at home.

    Visitors to Indy for Big 10 BBall Tournament. Lorenzo's was a real dining experience compared to previous nite's dinner at fake-novel Cerulean. Lorenzo's atmosphere, service, bar, service and food were all genuine. We will go to Lorenzo's again for sure.

    John
    Dined on 3/15/2014
    From the reservation to the final course of the meal, this experience was everything we could have asked for. It was our anniversary and I requested appropriate seating and received it by the fireplace. The staff was open, friendly and polite. They were attentive without hovering on a very busy night for them. The food was exquisite and among the best we have had ANYWHERE. The overall cost was well below what one would pay at other similar establishments. Overall, this was a meal to remember and we shall.

  • Better the first time
    dacopper
    Dined on 3/14/2014
    Restaurant was very busy (Big 10 Championship) but having reservations we were seated close to our reservation time. Our waiter was attentive and courteous. He recommended the specials of the night and my wife chose one. Beef tenderloin & shrimp. He said that the tenderloin would be served on a bed of linguine and that there would be 6 large shrimp accompanying the tenderloin. Instead my wife recieved the tenderloin on a bed of white rice and the shrimp lived up to their name - they were very small almost popcorn size. This was very disappointing for my wife and especially since they were charging over $40.00 for this dish. The soup, drinks, my main course and the dessert was very good. Definitely was better the first time we went.

  • Perfect for Symphony Dinner
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 3/12/2014
    We ate before the ISO Side by Side performance. Parked at the ISO and walked to Lorenzo's for a lovely early meal. They let us share a salad and an entree after our huge ( and excellent) Calamari appetizer. The wine was great and the ambiance fine. Since we were early, it was quiet, but not empty. The music was soft enough to allow good conversation. This is a restaurant that provides a quality experience consistently. I have eaten here at least 6 times and each time has been satisfying.

    From the warm welcome as we walked our experience was perfect. Excellent service- friendly, attentive, helpful without being invasive. Owner proud yet humble- honoring his father. Ambience was great- nice lighting and tasteful.bread was warm, soft interior with nice crust. Vegetables were perfectly cut and cooked. Nothing over sauced. I would have wanted a bit more heat in arrabiatta but still very good. Wine we had was good suggestion and very nice with meal. Interesting flavors without being pretentious. We were pleased and would recommend. .

Waitress was horrible, as well as other issue from the time we sat down till the time we left. Pure and simple.

    I relied on this website to book my reservation as I normally do. I planned an entire day with the wife around this one restaurant. Driving 1 1/2 hours just to find out it was closed and sold over not to reopen under the new name/ management in about a month. Not too pleased.

    Love this place. The Mr. Browning has been spot on every time I've been (3). The first one when our reservation left us waiting a little too long and gave us a free appetizer. The fact that he recognized this and made the gesture guaranteed I'd be back. The second was a simple last minute request for a specific booth by the fireplace and he made that happen also. Food is terrific. Will keep coming back. You should definitely give Lorenzo"s a try it will not disappoint.

    We stopped in on Valentines Day before the symphony (as did several others) for a Valentine's Day dinner. Very busy but we were treated to a great meal. Tried to go on the light side before sitting for the program and that was achieved nicely. We had Pinot Noir suggested by the server - great. I had tomato bisque soup - get this - and my wife had a salad wrapped in a cucumber slice - neat. I had a chicken chiantigianati (sp) and my valentine had pasta. No time for dessert. Great spot. If you want a romantic seat ask for the tables by the fire place.

    The visit to Lorenzo"s went great. The selections were wonderful, so all 4 in the party had different dishes. The pasta dishes were perfect, the pork shank was unique, and the lemon-crab-salmon special was indeed special. The server was aware (per my note on open table reservation) that we had tickets for show on the circle, and he made sure we were finished on time. Valet parking was a plus and it is handled well there.

    My wife and I had a great dinner experience here early on a Saturday evening. We arrived at 5pm; it was not busy then, but slowly filled up. We left at 7pm and the restaurant was full. It was a nice setting for a romantic meal, but they also had a few screens with sports on -- although they weren't terribly distracting. The service was great, although it took a little longer than we would have expected to get our food. Attire ranged from people in jeans to people in suits, although I think this place was deserving of at least business casual. Very nice establishment. We would definitely come back.

    We had reservations and arrived a few minutes before our 8 o'clock reservation. There was one other couple waiting for the rest of their party at the front desk. There were several tables open when we arrived. There were a minimum of 4 groups ranging from 2 to 6 that arrived after us with out a reservation and they were all sat before we were. We were finally sat at about 8:20 and were the last couple sat with no one else waiting. I certainly did not understand their logic when it came to seating people. We did not make a stink or complaint as we just wanted to enjoy a nice dinner and a bottle of wine. The service was a 3 on a 10 scale, she forgot several things we asked her for and was not very attentive. Food was about a 7 on a 10 scale.

    The lighting and decor made a good first impression. Our waiter was attentive, all of the food was delicious. The single drawback was nearly 45 minutes of police car lights flashing outside the window. The thing that we have always said about "Devour" is that no matter where we dine, we are never treated as if weare second class customers. This was true as Lorenzo's. We would come back and recommend this place to friends.
