    Mesh popped up on a few "Restaurants you must eat at" lists on Google so we wanted to try it out. Mesh is now where the Scholars Inn was previously. The food was perfect, from the lamb and beef meatballs appetizer (so much flavor!) to the lamb shank and diver scallops entrees. Only imperfection was that the salads came first and the app was dropped almost right after...leaving a long time between that round and our entrees. The food and service and atmosphere were perfect, it was the timing that was off. Even the bread was outstanding. I highly recommend Mesh to anyone because the menu is diverse enough that you'll find what you want with all of the choices. Please note, the parking meters are hungry too and you'll need to feed them at least 1.5 to 2 hours worth of money to truly enjoy yourselves. Worst mistake Indy ever made was installing parking meters in an area where you want people to eat, and shop, and linger.

    Great spot for a business dinner. The quality of the food was outstanding and the balance of flavors delightful. Our wait person was knowledgable and professional. This was a business dinner and she did not rush us one bit. Nor did she push the alcohol wish was a nice change. The lamb meatballs were heavenly - the mesh salad was a perfectly balanced salad and the crab cake had not one spec of bread crumbs. Make reservations today.

    The service was horrible. My friend with celiac disease couldn't get a straight answer from the waitress about how to order her meal gluten free, and when she finally chose something "safe" (a hamburger with no bun) the waitress suggested she go for a salad as a side and up charged her for the salad. Not a dining experience I was expecting from Mesh. It was my friend's first experience there...and I'm sure she won't return.

    We have been to Mesh for a quick meal in the bar and lunch outside, but that was right after they switched management. We had the sea bass, tuna tar tar and their aged version of an Old Fashioned was one of the best drinks we've had in Indy! The food was delicious and the waitress very helpful. We are planning to go back soon with our friends!

    We live north of Indy and have been wanting to try a few of the newer restaurants on Mass Ave for quite some time. My Aunt was downtown for a quick visit, which gave us a great excuse to finally make it down for dinner. When asking friends and clients for recommendations on Mass Ave, Mesh came up first almost every time. Now we know first hand why...the whole experience was wonderful and the food outstanding! The Sea Bass was to die for. If you are looking for an upscale spot with exceptional service, outstanding menu choices, and a wonderful atmosphere Mesh will not disappoint! We are already looking forward to our next visit!

    We made reservation on a whim for brunch, what a great surprise. The decor was beautifully done, very comfortable. The menu was creative and offered a wide variety. Apparently recently redone. The four of us all had something difference, they were all delicious. price was reasonable, not close to my home, but worth the drive. I would imagine it would be a nice place after a show.

    I went to Mesh after a friend recommended it, and it is one of the best places I have ever eaten in Indianapolis. We sat in the bar area, and the atmosphere was really cool yet still casual. The food was all pretty standard ideas, but with a unique twist on each one. My hardest decision was to choose if I wanted breakfast-brunch or lunch-brunch! I brought my parents and neither of them was disappointed either. After finishing our food and sitting for awhile (they were in no way trying to rush us out which was nice) my dad said that he would without a doubt put Mesh in his Top 10 Restaurants in Indy, and I agree!

    The food is extraordinary! Great outdoor patio for dining with a burning fire pit, if you are so inclined. Interior is beautifully decorated and very comfortable and upscale. On this visit, the noise level was annoyingly high primarily because of a large party right behind our table that was celebrating something. They were off the chain and distracting. We were seated at an intimate table for two and there were times I could hardly hear my guest because of the raucous. However, having been to Mesh several times before, this is not the usual experience. Just make sure you don't get seated at a table near the bigger sized tables for large parties. Overall, a great restaurant.

    Went to Mesh for a lunch meeting. They were very accommodating, as we ended up having one additional person. Was greeted promptly by the hostess. Our party was seated at a nice round table, perfect for a business meeting! Everyone liked their food, but the salads were very watery. I don't think that the lettuce was drained properly after being washed, so it caused the entire salad to be soggy and the dressing to be watery. Server was nice, but a little slow in coming to the table for drink orders, then slow in coming back to get our meal orders. The iced tea tasted like coffee. Everyone really liked the Ruben sandwich and the Chicken Cuban panini.

    We had a mixed group of six going to a concert at The Deluxe so we had an early reservation. We were all coming from different lcoations and running late. The staff was understanding and everything was set up when we arrived. Our server, Joseph, was great - friendly, fun and knew the menu well. The food and drinks were fabulous. I had an appetizer with crabcakes and pancakes, which was awesome and the wedge salad is the best. The menu has many options that appeal to everyone I have ever dined with at Mesh; it is one of my favorite choices in Indy and never disappoints.

    My first visit to Mesh was on a Saturday night before a concert at the Murat. The restaurant's decor and ambiance are fabulous. The service was first quality, understated and not intrusive which is how I like it. The wine list was superior. The short coming (and it's a big one) is that the food is sub standard for a restaurant that is trying to be an upscale dining spot. We had the mushroom and goat cheese strudel as an appetizer. It was good but nothing special. It would have been quite bland without the arugala that is served with it. I had the halibut and it was quite good but did not justify the price. My friend had the trout that was a special that evening and it was very bland. I can't recommend this restaurant.

We tend to have fairly different tastes in food, but what I like about mesh is that there is something for everyone's pallet on the menu, and it's all very good.

    This is a truly excellent restaurant in Indy, and a significant step up and change of pace from Scholars Inn, which was a great restaurant at the time. All dishes were uniformly excellent. The only downside was that the service, while efficient, seems to be lacking the same sparkle that the restaurant has. Server seemed to be going through the motions is the best way to describe it. Otherwise highly recommended.

    Server was very attentive until our food came which was delivered by bussing staff. I ordered my steak medium "hot pink center, no red". It was prepared with an "all red" center. Unfortunately no one came to check on us after our food was delivered so I started eating the outside of my steak. Our server finally swung by and noticed all of the red steak on my plate. It was way too late to send anything back. Then some guy approached the table (kind of creepy, he didn't introduce himself as a manager, could have been some guy off the street) he leaned in and offered to replace my steak.. "Uh, it's a little late for that" We couldn't get the server's attention for the rest of the dinner. Yes, we ordered the bread pudding- delicious!

    I asked the server if I could order the tuna well done (the most expensive item on the menu), as I do not like my tuna rare. She said that she would check with the chef. She returned & told me that the chef would only cook it rare. Needless to say, I did not order the tuna. If I'm paying for it & I want my tuna cooked a certain way, I should get my tuna cooked the way that I want it, not how the chef wants it. I realize the flavor will be different, but that was the point. We also were wondering about bread while eating our dinner. When the server picked up our plates, we asked & she said," Oh would like me to bring out bread?" We were finished with our dinner! Why would we want bread now! Needless to say, we won't be returning.

    The food at Mesh was amazing, however the service was pretty bad. I had a cake delivered and wanted it brought out after dinner. When we got seated, the hostess just stated loudly that the cake was here and asked when we wanted it to be brought out. Hello, it is suppose to be a surprise that you bring out at the end. So, that surprise was ruined. Our waitress was very nice, but extremely slow. It took her so long to bring out every item she said she was going to bring. Like I said, on the up side, the food was fantastic, so kudos to the cooks and "wah" "wah" on the service.

    We stopped by for a samplng of appetizers before a show, and were very pleased. Our chatty, friendly waiter deduced we were a little pressed for time and gave us the attention we needed to wrap up quickly. Ate outside, in the small area between their building and another's parking lot, but nicely screened by shrubbery etc. Mesh salad, lobster/shrimp bisque, crab cakes and mushroom-goat cheese roll all great. We will go back!

    We have ordered the filet the last two times dining here. It is the best we have had in recent memory and my husband says, perhaps the best he can remember ever having! And that is a high praise. Service was excellent. Not rushed, but perfect for us to visit with an out-of-town friend. The menu doesn't try to offer everything, and does what it offers well. Calamari appetizer perfectly cooked and very tender with light breading. Highly recommend a visit.
