    This is our go to place with out of town guests. Quiet enough that we can talk yet still a lively atmosphere. The food is perfect...delightful spinach salad with delicate dressing, sliders that are inventive but not strange, BBQ shrimp and grits the best we've had, bosu fish perfect. Outstanding taste and presentation.

    I enjoy going to Oh Yumm! Bistro, but I felt on my recent visit that the service could have been better, and some menu items were listed on their board as being options, but they weren't. The food is good, but a bit pricey.

    I wish I could have selected "great for outdoor dinning" but I really couldn't. We dinned outside which is something we really enjoy. It would have been more enjoyable if the sidewalk wasn't so slanted. Two of us ate sideways and two ate downhill. It was worth the challenge as the streetscape is pleasing and the food is well above average. We enjoyed our Sunday brunch which offered a plentiful menu. Someone at your table (whose is willing to share) must order the biscuits and steak gravy...it was amazing. The corned beef hash was also very good; made with both white and sweet potatoes with flavorful corned beef. We look forward to our next visit. You won't regret trying Oh Yumm...

    We hadn't been to Oh Yumm! in about two years but had a fantastic experience. We did all small plates and every single dish was delicious and beautifully presented. The small plates range from $6 to $12 so as a couple we shared six different items for a wide variety of tastes. The desserts were incredible too. The new chef is apparently fabulous! Highly recommend this gem on an adorable street of shops near Meridian Kessler and Butler Tarkington.

    We dropped in for Father's day brunch with our family of 8. It wasn't too crowded, but it took over an hour to get our order. They don't have the kitchen to prepare for such a large group in short order. Eggs Benedict was a hit. Biscuits and gravy, gravy was very tasty, but biscuits and beef, dry.

    The filet was outstanding. There were many good options on the menu--hard to choose! I always enjoy coming here. The noise level was extremely loud this trip. It's thoughtless people, not the fault of the restaurant. It was difficult for my friend and I to hear each other talk.

    This was our first trip to Oh Yumm! Bistro but it won't be our last. We had guests (food snobs) in from New York and sought this out because of other positive reviews. Oh my. When I say the food was perfect, that is no exaggeration: fried green tomatoes, bistro salad, salmon prepared just so, shrimp and grits that were off the charts, the special fajitas and perfect pasta--not to mention Bananas Foster. Literally the finest meal we have had in a long time.

    We went on a Wednesday night and asked if there were any drink special - were told about a few beer specials, but not the 50% off bottled wine we saw online - we had to ask about it. It seems all specials should be mentioned especially if asked about a specific category. Otherwise, the service was great and we had a nice evening.

    Went for Sunday brunch and the food was very good. The service less so. Waited over fifteen minutes to be acknowledged after being seated. When other patrons who were seated after us started to get their food, asked the hostess if we had a wait person. Guess one hadn't been assigned to us. After that, got service fairly well. Overall, the outside dining is great, the food wonderful, and prices fairly reasonable.

    I hadn't been to Oh Yumm! Bistro for years -- it's off the beaten path and I never thought about it. I will now. The menu is good, with some interesting twists. My wife is gluten free and had the Mahi Mahi tacos, which were great, and the chicken picatta was perfectly done. Good wine selection rounds out the meal. The ceviche-style shrimp cocktail was a great starter, and it looks like there are many other great options. Can't wait for it to warm up enough to eat at the sidewalk tables.

    My children and I have an Easter tradition, of going to brunch after church. This year, we selected Oh, Yumm! Bistro and we were not disappointed. My daughters had the french toast and the 2-Egg special, with crispy pepper bacon. I had the Crabby eggs, a take-off on Eggs Benedict, with a crab cake between the English muffin and poached egg. Spectacular! We've been here before for a lazy weekend lunch, and had similar praise for their lunch foods. The room is skinny, so there are a limited number of tables, but they expand out on the sidewalk, bistro-style, when the weather permits. And the best part of the meal was the low price-tag. You've got to check this one out!

    I love Oh Yumm. It is my favorite restaurant, not just in Indy., but of all time. Maybe because I feel so comfortable when I walk in knowing familiar faces but also knowing my meal will be wonderful. There are always new dishes to try. My Lamb that I had on Easter was the best ever and the bread pudding for a shared dessert was sooo good. It was made with croissants and had bits if chocolate. I'm panting just thinking about it. In warm weather I love to sit outside. Service is always friendly and spot on. I've had Oh Yumm cater three small parties and they were wonderful. I don't want it to become too crowded so I'm not saying anymore. I'm selfish---don't come and crowd me.

    We met friends here for an early dinner meal before a concert at Butler University. The menu has a variety of choices including tapas and vegetarian or meat lover dishes. There is a cozy atmosphere reminiscent of some bistros we have experienced in Europe. It was good food and great to have this fine option so close to Butler University. We liked parking in back of the restaurant as well.
