Changing the Scene in downtown Indy
The cocktails and food are both outstanding, great atmosphere and exactly what downtown needed! One of our favorites in Indy by a mile - don't miss the bacon flight and if you get lucky and they are on the menu, the brussel sprouts.

Great for Group Drinks
Five of us enjoyed cocktails and oysters on a late Saturday night. Great drinks, the raw oysters were a little heavy on the vinegar, but otherwise great. Service, ambiance, and drinks were all spot on. Definitely recommend the Libertine and will be back.

conversation a bit difficult
conversation a bit difficult due to noise - music was loud forcing people to try and talk over the music. still a very enjoyable meal.

Great experience. Food was
Great experience. Food was as noted on the menu, and more. Drink selection great, but the service from the bar was a bit slow. Keep the drinks coming!

Everything we had tasted awesome,
Everything we had tasted awesome, but the main dish portions are quite small. Don't go there starving! Perfect place for a light meal like appetizer and drinks.

The bacon & deviled eggs appetizers
The bacon & deviled eggs appetizers were excellent as always. The salmon burger was amazing! The zucchini & butternut squash pasta was different but very tasty. We have never been disappointed with this place.

I always find the Libertine
I always find the Libertine to be Indy's best mix of fabulous food & cocktails, unparalleled service, and amazing ambience. Don’t let the name fool you- this little “Liquor Bar” has a full menu. I’ve tried many things on the menu and have never been disappointed. This is by far Indianapolis’s most unique dining and cocktail experience. A definate "must" for anyone who appreciates quality.

We went early (5:30) for drinks
We went early (5:30) for drinks and a bite to eat before a concert. It's quiet and laid back at that time, but was getting crowded and loud just a little later. The music is a tad too loud for easy conversation so once it fills up, "energetic" may be an understatement.
The cocktails are very good, interesting mix of flavors and they will customize them for you, making it sweeter, or less sweet. The food is excellent. They aren't afraid to try interesting combinations of flavors and it's usually a one-of-a-kind dining experience.

Enjoyed the drinks and the food
Interesting drink menu, focused on prohibition-style cocktails. As vodka had not gained popularity at that time, gin, wiskeys, etc are the main fare (along with local craft beers and a nice wine list). Food? You have to start with the Flight of Bacon and my spouse indicated her wedge salad was delicious. Try the salmon burger....it is quite messy to eat but it is well worth it.....and they will give you more napkins.
Looks like a hip place for the night crowd!

We had heard about this spot from several friends and wanted to give it a try. Great "cubby-hole" wall decor, long narrow bar and professional staff made it feel very good. Had reservations for 7:30 pm but probably didn't need them. Solomon our waiter was hipster cool with tight jeans and big beard. Explained everything to us, and never uttered the phrase "absolutely" which every other wait staff says without regard to it's actual meaning. Cheese plate, cheesburger and roasted cauliflower graced out table.Excellent taste, and great proportions.Good value for price. Cocktails were excellent. Mai Tai for her, something with Rye whiskey for me...All in all an excellent evening.

Great experience every time
Every time I've been to The Libertine, it has been a great experience. Cocktails are superb, the food is even better, and the service is friendly and attentive without being pushy. Love going there.

I was not disappointed.
Going back next week when my daughter comes in from
New Orleans. Libertine's cocktails is what she is used too!

a great friday with friends
When we moved here a year ago, it was not possible to get a table at the libertine, unless you planned for weeks in advance. I was totally surprised then, when I could reserve a table for friday on thursday morning. We were taking my friend there, who is a bit of a cocktail snob, him being a trained bar- tender and a foodie. Our waiter was incredibly knowledgable, he took good care of us, checking in regularly without it being too much.My friend loved it, as did we.
One thing I am not too happy about: my partner is vegetarian, and there are like three items he can eat, because even some of the vegetarian items are made with duck fat etc.

The way drinks should be made..
... and food too. Not only are the bartenders skilled in heir craft, they only use ingredients from craft distilleries. Their menu philosophy emphasizes exactly what it should... GREAT FOOD... not a long list of choices. My favorite place in Indy!

Great food and a fun atmosphere
We had a great time and the food was outstanding. We will definitely come back.
The only negative, it was very very noisy so at times it was difficult to have a conversation across the table. If we had been sitting at the bar, no problem.

Such a fun place. Great service.

Great food, better drinks
Really good food, well prepared. Definitely get the bacon flight. The drinks were stellar; I love cocktails and everything from the mixed to martinis to the Moscow mule was delicious. Will definitely be back!

Bite before the Symphony
Missed the deviled eggs and no green salads available. Great menu choices for foodies.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
What else is there to say? The food is fantastic and it is just part of the overall experience. Just a great spot for a drink and "small plate" meal...with lots of small plates!! It is a visual as well as a culinary experience!! And it's FUN!!
