    This was maybe our 4-5 time at P47 and we had another great meal. The bone-in filet is outstanding. You can literally scrap the meat from the bone with your fork it is so tender. Great wine, shareable sides, and that half baked cookie thing is just evil.

    What a treat. Felt like I was in NYC or Chicago with outstanding wait staff and impecable attention to detail. I was in town to celebrate my friends 50th birthday. Be sure to explain your special occassion on the reservation - I won't ruin the surprise as another reviewer suggested - but it was delightful. Great food and cocktails - and to top it all off - a piano player with a little twinkle in her eye but not over the top so as to distract from our celebration. Well done Indianapolis!

    The staff was fantastic for our 9th Anniversary dinner. Little details made the evening perfect. I don't want to spoil the fun, so just make sure they know what your occasion is so they can make it even more special. Could be the best steak in Indy. The live piano was great as well.

    The most memorable dinner my wife and I have had in years. In order of excellence 1) the ribeye was one of the best I have ever had, melted in my mouth 2) service was outstanding and 3) live piano (hardly fair to rank it third ... It was exceptional too). We will be back. Soon.

    Given the pricey menu, the food certainly did not match. Scallops were terrific, but the steaks and sides would not make my top 5 in the city.

    Only our first visit to this location and the food did not disappoint. The service, however, did. Bradford may have been having an off night, but he had an attitude and appeared bored and I felt as though he thought he was doing us a favor by waiting on us. Our only other experience has been at the Carmel location where we were treated like royalty. We were not rushed like we were downtown, the ambiance is warm and friendly and the wait staff allowed us to enjoy our meals and dining experience rather than make us feel like we were just another group they needed to serve. Despite the great food, we'll keep our business in Carmel!

    Wonderful service, beautiful ambiance, and incredible steak! Steak just melted in your mouth. My only wish is that the plate stayed hotter longer. I felt like I had to eat fast to keep it from getting cold. This was our first time trying Wagyu steak and it was beyond words, just amazing flavor and texture! Will be back but for a special occasion, this set a new record for us as far as a dinner tab.

    The service was more than attentive and thoughtful, the room is historic though not evenly climate-controlled, the live pianist misunderstood his function and banged away in fortissimo (rather than providing a romantic ambience), the fish prepared perfectly, all food arrived at the right temperature and in timely fashion, gorgeous bread pudding for desert. Everything was prepared and served perfectly. To summarize: a great night, a great meal, a beautifully run and absolutely 5 star restaurant...and not overpriced.

  • Pregame Sunday Brunch
    ColtsFan
    Dined on 9/28/2014
    We went to their initial Pregame Sunday Brunch. Although the food was very good, the selection and maintenance of the buffet table was poor. They had a very small plate of shrimp that would have been enough for a table of 4 to share. When that was gone, there was no refill! Next they brought out one small-medium piece of smoked salmon. It was excellent, but again, once that was gone, no refills. Most people in the restaurant did not even get a taste. Food was good, would like to think they have learned something from the first brunch, but we will not return.

    Went for a family birthday. The restaurant went above and beyond. They provided special menus, a special dessert, and the pianist in the corner played hapoy birthday with the desert delivery! Service was on time (wine delivered with meals on the spot) and quick. All the while the place didn't feel "stuffy" like some fancy steakhouses. An approachable place with great food and impeccable service. I would say the sides were very good but not amazing - the steak was decadent.

    We went for our 2 yr anniversary and the staff there made it incredibly special. They took our picture and gave us a framed copy, printed a message on the menu for us, and brought us a free (and absolutely amazing) desert. They were all very friendly and gave great menu advice. The food was as good as all the big name steakhouses, would just recommend saving a little room for the cookie/ice cream desert:)

    Fabulous meal. We started with the calamari & rock shrimp appetizer (outstanding). My wife had the sea bass and I had filet & lobster. We split a side of lobster Mac & cheese. Everything was excellent. It was one of the best meals I've had in quite some time. They asked if we were celebrating anything special and my wife indicated an early anniversary celebration. The hostess reappeared with a camera and asked if they could rake our picture. A few minutes later they appeared with a framed photo (complimentary) to remind us of the night. Nice touch! Ended the meal with a delicious free dessert. Highly recommended.

    When my wife and I ordered our steaks our waiter Jeff told us they included soup and salad. He told us that it was the house salad or soup of the day. When we asked for a different soup and salad the waiter said "we can take care of that" so I assumed that meant it would be included in the cost or maybe we would have to pay the difference. When we received the bill we discovered the full price of the soup and salad was charged. The waiter apologized and said it was his fault but refused to take the charge off of our bill. The food was good but not great. The service was good but not great. The customer service was unacceptable so we will not return.

    Good food. It was laid there, so hard to have a conversation. Our reservation was at 730 and we were shocked they ran out of tuna when we tried to order. Disappointed to say the least. Had the sea bass and it was excellent. Would say it is a good place for a business dinner if you need some energy.

    Once we got the right waiter, it was an excellent experience. The first waiter didn't seem to care that we were there, much less that we were celebrating a birthday. Once we spoke to the host, he was more than willing to find us the best waiter, Charlie! He was most attentive and took care of our every need. He was not overbearing at all, and seemed to be there when we needed him. Great experience!
