    Food was good and service was great. I was very impressed with the chicken sausage (i don't eat pork) and the made-to-order omelette and waffle station. The wait staff was friendly and were always around to offer drink refills. If I ever stay at the Hyatt again, I will definitely eat there.

    I made reservation and no one checked me in. I waited at the empty restaurant for quite a while- no one monitored the door. I asked for unsweetened grapefruit juice, I got sweetened pineapple grapefruit juice. They did not have Sweet n Lo, so I went to my room to get my own packs. When I came back, my coffee was already poured and was no longer hot. So, for a high-scale restaurant, the quality of service was rather low class.

    We stayed at the hotel and choose to have breakfast here. The menu looked like it had lots of options that were appealing but we ended up chosing to do the buffet. There were the standards - eggs, bacon, sausage, etc. There was also an omlet station Not being a huge fan of eggs, I didn't partake of this. However, hidden at the end of the line - just past the omlet station - there were very yummy pastries. Overall the restaurant was bright and appealing. I would likely eat here again if I were in the area or staying here.

    Do the pasta bar. Don't worry if you are trying to cut the carbs, you can get salad, soup, and it also has a ton of veggies and meats you choose from. Menu items are overpriced so this is why I recommend the pasta bar.

    I had several business breakfasts and lunches during an annual meeting at the Convention Center. The location was very convenient for a getaway to a quiet area where we could enjoy a real lunch served quickly. The pasta bar was a big hit. The breakfast buffet was equally good, fast and delicious. Servers were very accomodating, attentive and friendly.

    Located inside the Hyatt Regency Indianapolis Hotel, this venue takes pride in the "farm to fork" style of cuisine. My colleagues and I went there for lunch. I had their special salad served with a corn yogurt dressing. I didn't want to go too heavy on the dressing since it looked as though it was still fermenting. My colleague and I noticed an effervescence which we felt was a defect. Otherwise the food was very good.

    We had 13 people in our party, which I thought would be a problem, but we had two servers for the group. They gave us our own private room. The restaurant is located within the Hyatt hotel, which I didn't know when I booked it, but the food was very good. I had the margarita flatbread which was delicious. Others had the create your own salads or the the create your own entree with protein, starch, and vegetables. They also gave us points towards our meal if we were Hyatt Gold members. I would come back again.

    Bryan our waiter was wonderful and friendly. As a downtown worker I had not been to One South. It is a hidden gem but I am glad we got there very early. It was very busy right at noon and the line for the pasta backed up. I do not eat alot of pasta but was enticed by the salad bar and soup. It was a very healthy and good meal. You should market not just to your hotel and tower but other work spaces downtown. A bit over priced for my budget. I was flabber ghasted that the past/salad bar /make your own was $12+.

    party of 10 for annual holiday lunch. Appreciated being seated in private dining room without it being requested. The group enjoyed the food. Our server was very pleasant and promptly attended to our needs. Line for pasta bar was long and very slow, makes it difficult for a large group to all eat at the same time.

    I'm not a big pasta person when it comes to dining out so I hesitated to get the pasta bar when our department dined there for lunch and I am so glad that I went with the group. It was awesome. The salad was fresh and a large amount of toppings to put on it. And the pasta was excellent--so many options to choose from and the red pepper sauce was perfect. But the best part of the whole meal was the bread pudding. Again, I was hesitant to try it and now kind of wish I hadn't because now I want it everyday! I hope this is an everyday item because next week when my husband and I go there for lunch I might just make a meal of it!

    I always enjoy One South. I enjoy the menu items, but typically, I go for the pasta bar. I get to design my own pasta dish with fresh ingredients that are assembled by a friendly, efficient chef. It's a great spot for groups, because there are so many options -- and the pricing is pretty good, too! My only complaint -- if you can call it that -- is that I think they need a larger pasta bar for when it's really busy. Maybe at least 2 chefs behind the counter. I sometimes have to wait in line longer than it takes me to eat my pasta. I suppose it's the curse of success, but it's fixable if they're willing to spend the money. I would definitely (and do!) recommend One South to friend, coworkers, and visitors. Great place!

    The food is always good. Love the fact that you have a great pasta bar. Overall it is always the place my Co workers and I chose to have that special meeting, or that particular place to have a great lunch with each other. Food is great, we enjoy the environment and will continue to come back. Noise was as normal for the lunch hour.

    The staff, setting and food were phenomenal; an unexpected surprise. We were a group of 12 conference attendees who had never met and decided to meet for breakfast on the first day of the conference. The staff set us up in a special room, turned down the music, and met our every need. The food was spectacular. I went back later with another group for the lunch buffet which was equally good.

    Got the pasta bar and it was a lot of food, if you have low restraint for buffets. Since we ordered the buffet, the service was fast. Many salad options also. Bread pudding was average. $16 lunch with tip. Buffet includes a beverage and dessert. Good food and would go back. Centrally located in lobby of the Hyatt hotel.

    You can't go wrong with One South. The salad/pasta bar is the absolute best. There's nothing like choosing the ingredients for yourself. The room is elegant and sophisticated; the service outstanding (ask to sit in Jake's section). Perfect spot to take a group.

    The pasta/salad bar is the best lunch. At $14 it's a little high for lunch but completely worth it. Everything is always fresh in the salad bar and it's not your typical fare. The chef does an outstanding job preparing everyone's pasta, made to order. It's delicious and we can get in and out in less than an hour so it's perfect if you're within walking distance. Since most people choose this for lunch rather than ordering off the menue, the waitstaff doesn't really have a lot to do but refill your beverage and take your plates. That's the only reason I gave them a "good" for service.

    This was our first time at Once South for brunch or any meal for that matter. Every year we take our family and one other person to one of the Indianapolis Hotel Brunches for Thanksgiving Brunch. The overall opinions of our guest is that it failed to meet our expectations. The food placement and selection left a lot to be desired. Sausage and bacon next to Macaroni and Cheese, nesx to desert. The salad bar was good, but then followed by poorly prepared stuffing and stiff mashed potatoes.
