Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "Food was cold. Steak did not have good flavor and tilapia lacked taste. It tasted very "fishy." However, salads were delicious. "

  • "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!"

  • "Did lunch before a Colts game...fast and easy as the only option available was the breakfast buffet. But it's a little later than breakfast so everything is a bit like leftovers. It's OK."

  • "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."

  • "Great place to eat with friends for lunch. The food is delicious, especially the made to order pasta bar. Just be sure to get there early enough or late enough to avoid the long lines that normally develop. The staff are very pleasant and the place is clean and elegant. The prices are reasonable, especially with the discount they offer for people who work downtown."

  • "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."

  • "Had lunch on Sunday the 5th and was served by waiter Jake and what a fantastic waiter he is and a very personable young man. The food was excellent with no complaints. One South is a fantastic place and ask for Jake and you will get the best service possible. Will definitely return on a future visit to Indi."

  • "Restaurant didn't check their online reservations...table wasn't ready, menu from their website wasn't available (we were told only the buffet was available), and then no plates at the buffet and little food...we left and went to another restaurant."

  • "Our group met for lunch at One South to have lunch during a recent conference. Although, we chose it based on convenience (they are located right there at the Hyatt Regency Indianapolis), the food was great, and the service was excellent!"

  • "Modern and ecclectic in design, cold and raw in feeling. Felt like I was at a faast food restaurant. Place is in the main lobby of the Hyatt Hotel and is rub by Hyatt. Food was ok but, atmosphere was sort of cool but, I prefer tablecloths and there were none here. Really felt like I was in the cafeteria at High School. I was ok and if your going will be fine."

  • "I have to rate the service as poor. The pasta guy is great, but he only has two hands. At 12:15, the line for pasta was more than 10 people. My husband gave up and just ate from the salad bar. I can't go back or recommend this place again until they get a second pasta station. The food is really good...if you can ever get it."
