Diner Reviews
  • "Excellent food and service. One of the best restaurants in Indianapolis."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "Had a wonderful meal with exceptional quality food, competitively priced with other area steakhouses, but in a quiet, highly personalized atmosphere with exceptionally attentive service. We will definitely return again only maybe not wait for a special occasion!"
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "Peterson's pricing would make one expect a dining experience similar to Ruth's Chris, for example. Neither the ambiance or the flavor comes close to that standard. Salads were lackluster, dessert was slightly overdone. The steak was a relatively poor cut for the price."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "We had a wonderful meal - great ambiance - and terrific service - there when we needed him but not interactive -"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "There are very few institutions which retain their initial approach to their endeavors... especially restaurants. Peterson's has been excellent every time I have visited over the years. (The worst visit I ever had at Peterson's was great!) It's such a relief to find Peterson's maintaining their excellence every time I have dinner there. Thank you Peterson's! Please keep it up!!"
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "My wife and I have dined at Peterson's many times in the past and on every prior occasion the food and service was exceptional. This year we chose to celebrate our anniversary at Peterson's and the experience could not have been more unpleasant. The food was mediocre, the service was inattentive, and we found ourselves wondering how such a fine establishment could have declined so quickly. I don't know if this was just an anomaly or a sign that things have changed at Peterson's."
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "I was told I should spend the evening of my birthday at Peterson's. I am so pleased that I took my instructors advice and ate there! My food was remarkably delicious! The waiter was patient and thorough. The ambience was quiet and relaxing. Peterson's is a marvelous restaurant for any occasion. I'm so grateful I had the opportunity to experience the food and also the hospitality."
    Dined on 4/30/2014
  • "We went for the first time for an anniversary dinner after receiving a gift card. We got an bottle of wine for $50, 2 entrees, and 2 sides and the bill ran us $140. Our server Kevin was great...very laid back but informative and showed up just enough times to make sure we were taken care of. My only complaint was that for ordering a medium-well filet mine was a little too pink. But, overall, we would return."

  • "We were celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary and the service and food was excellent. We were glad we chose Peterson's for our special dinner. The Hostess took our picture and gave us a copy, a very nice touch."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "We love this place. We have been many times with friends and clients and the wine menu and selections of food never disappoint. We will go again and again."
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "Everything was great for Father's Day. The food was excellent and more than plentiful. The service was impeccable. Would definitely dine on Father's day again."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Took mom and dad for an early Father's Day celebration while I was visiting from out of town. This place has quickly become our favorite steakhouse as food, service and ambiance are top shelf and an overall great value."
    Dined on 6/9/2014
  • "The service was good, but I was disappointed with the food. I usually have a better dining experience here. "
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "Due to the respect the restaurant has I shall choose to keep that reputation positive although for the price it was not worth it. Have a different favorite restaurant. "
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "We went to celebrate a birthday and had a wonderful time. The food is great. The service is very accommodating. It just does not get much better."
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "We were seated in front of the Bar & Entrance, not the ambience we were expecting from a place like Peterson's. We felt like we were in an Applebee's except the food was better! After driving 2.5 hrs down to Indy, we expected better!"
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "We are never disappointed after an evening at Peterson's. The filets are the best in Indy. If you'd rather have seafood, the scallops are fantastic also. Not to mention the many other menu choices. Just a great place to dine with family, friends or clients."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "We arrived at 5:30 p.m. on a Monday evening. The restaurant was dimly lit and the main dining area was mostly empty. We had a friendly and attentive server, who thoroughly answered our questions about various menu items. We enjoyed everything we ordered, including the charcuterie plate, wild game sausages, wedge salad, roasted beets, lobster bisque, 8 oz filet with accompaniment. Even the bread rolls and whipped butter were outstanding. One of our complaints is that as the restaurant began to fill in, our server was rarely to be seen. After finishing a wedge salad, we thought entrees were soon to follow. We sat for at least twenty minutes, maybe more, and our server did not offer any updates, apologies, or explanation for the delay."
    Dined on 5/12/2014
  • "Excellent service despite our server being overly extended. The food was good, but it appeared that the kitchen could not keep up with the demand."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "I'm not certain how I could rate this wonderful restaurant on its kid-friendlyness. You have to be 21 to eat here :( I wish I could take my 18-year-old nephew here for wonderful steaks, but I can't. This is my only problem with this restaurant."
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "We've been to Peterson's before, but it had been about 4 years. If anything, it's only gotten better with age. The menu is superb and diverse, and every single thing we ordered was perfect. Outstanding service, a quiet atmosphere for a romantic dinner -- simply the best. "
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "If you are looking for something different in brunch, this is it! They have the usual cast of characters ++++++++++ Great atmosphere and quieter than most restaurants these days."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "I was looking forward to brunch at Perersons but I was disappointed. The food was not special like it is while dining in the evening. The waffles were cold, the waiter was sweating, and there was an abundance of people stepping on toes. I would not go back for brunch."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "THERE WERE 4 OF US THAT CAME IN FOR EASTER BRUNCH. WE HAD A 10:30 A.M. RESERVATION. WE WERE IMMEDIATELY WARMLY GREETED & SEATED WITHOUT ANY WAIT. THE DINNING ROOM WAS NOT COMPLETELY FILLED YET. PROBABLY STILL AT SERVICES. THE BUFFET WAS BEAUTIFUL . THE FOOD WAS VERY PLENTIFUL & HOT. THE STAFF WAS VERY COURTEOUS. THEY ALSO HAD SPECIAL OMLETTES & WAFFLES THAT WERE EXCELLENT. THEY WERE ALSO MADE IN THE KITCHEN SO THE BUFFET LINE WENT VERY QUICKLY. ALL THE FOOD WAS FABULOUS. BEFORE WE LEFT THE RESTAURANT, MY DAUGHTER MADE RESERVATIONS FOR THE MOTHERS DAY BUFFET."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "Good mix of special order entrees and buffet items. Would like gluten free breads or desserts to make it an outstanding choice."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "Perhaps you might consider having two prices. I feel that if you ordered additionally from the menu it would be worth the $39, but just eating from stations I think is a bit expensive. Juices should also be included in the cost of the meal."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "We were celebrating a birthday. It was truly a memorable event. The service was superb. The waiter was able to intelligently discuss all the options. He knew the drink options and could suggest alternatives on the wine list. The Oysters Rockefeller brought back memories of Antoine's in New Orleans where they were invented. The scallops are truly their signature dish. They are the best I have ever had. Indianapolis is so fortunate to have such a high quality restaurant."
    Dined on 4/18/2014
  • "The Bone in New York Strip was a disappointment. Thin and not much flavor. I was surprised after hearing all the rave reviews from others. "
    Dined on 4/17/2014
  • "Located next to an interstate and across from fast food joints, this unassuming grey building houses some of the best food I've had anywhere. The wine list is impressive if expensive but their are plenty of excellent affordable options as well. The food is beautifully prepared and presented...and there is not a surfeit of it. They don't try to make you gorge here, just give you reasonable portions of exquisitely prepared food. All the desserts are made in-house and the two we tried were each fabulous. The prices are commensurate with the food and service which is to say, high, but not unreasonably so."
    Dined on 4/14/2014
  • "I wanted my steak well done and no pink and i had to send it back two times to get it cooked right. You would think for the price of our meal that it would be cooked right the first tine. My wife's steak was cooked right the first rime."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "We enjoyed a fabulous dinner at this restaurant. There were three in our party. Two of us ordered the Diver Scallops and the other ordered the Lamb Porterhouse. We also ordered salads before dinner. We shared two side dishes - asparagus and mushrooms. Everything was cooked perfectly and tasted even better. I would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant. We have dined here previously, but it had been over two years ago. I do believe they are even better regarding the food. Thanks for a great time with family."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Peterson's is our place to go when we want to escape, relax, and enjoy a special meal. We ALWAYS experience excellent service in an elegant setting with incredibly delicious cuisine."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "I've been here many times. The prices have gone up and the quality of food didn't. It's not bad, but the price now far outweighs the food."
    Dined on 4/1/2014
  • "First time at Peterson's for our Anniversary. Very good experience. Server was excellent as was the meal. Wine recommendation was perfect and my wife thought the ribeye was one of the best she ever tasted. Bread pudding was also one of the best!"
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "Recent dinner there was an absolutely outstanding experience in food and knowledge of the server. I tremendously enjoyed the scallops over wild mushroom risotto and the shared appetizer of 4 different sausages, including deer and and boar were incredible, as were the crab cakes. Beyond being incredibly good, the presentation was beautiful. My only wish was that I like my food served a little hotter. I also found the dessert they offered (free) for their anniversary somewhat bland and tasteless. Maybe it was just because we were so full from all the other great food. I would go back anytime and recommend it it to anyone looking for a great dinning experience that goes far above just great slabs of meat."
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "My husband has always wanted to go there and we thought Northside nights would be a great time to try. Great lobster bisque and cheesecake. Only thing disappointing was the chocolate cake was no longer on the menu and I had several people tell me it was the best they ever had."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Previously we had a great experience at Peterson's. Unfortunately, this time the filet was dry, fish was under cooked and service was provided when we could flag someone down. This was our second time at Peterson's not sure there will be a third visit."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "This was one of my go-to never fail restaurants. Well, this was my 19th Wedding Anniversary and there's a first time for everything. My wife's Filet was tasteless and not the buttery tenderness we are accustomed to at Flemings. I ordered a fish dish that was like wise uninspiring. I will probably try again, but at these prices it will be a while. Service was excellent as always."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Peterson's is a great spot for a delicious steak on the north side. There wine list is very wel stocked and the setting is perfect for a relaxing night out!"
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "I went to Peterson's for the first time for Northside Nights. I had the best steak of my life! I also like sitting behind a semi private screen so it made the evening more romantic and special. The chocolate bread pudding was also a huge hit!"
