While I wouldn't order the
While I wouldn't order the quiche again, it was very good and interesting, with a crust that seemed to be made from cinnamon rolls. My friends trout was delicious. Only complaint is that it took forever to get our food and we couldn't figure out why, since there were only about 10 people in the entire restaurant! I'd love to know if and when their bar is open so I could bring friends for drinks.

It was a very pleasant dining
It was a very pleasant dining experience. Able to try something new. I ordered the sweetbreads appitizer it was ok. I am not a big organ eater. My friend had the escargote and they were tasty and big. We also ordered the trout and the steak with mushrooms and sauce. (they had french names I cannot remember) The trout was just a little to done but the steak was very good. The house salad was fresh and delicious. The waitress trainee was ver y attentive and if she did not know she went and found out. We were kept updated on our order even though the kitchen was not in sync with the way we ordered. It was still a very pleasant experience. The restaurant is lovely also expecially the view.

A Culinary Arts Experience
Not often if ever do you get to chat with a student chief and asked for your opinion of the dish he or she has prepared for you. My friend and I both agreed the sausage entree needed a potato. We truly enjoyed are appetizer the Ris de Veau. We found the portion to be just enough to get you excited about the rest of your meal. We did not have dessert, but looking forward to the next time to dine in this place of comfort and splendor.

Gourmet Dinner in a College Class
Courses is 100% student driven - they run the front of the house, back of the house, and beverage service while earning experience and college credit. Supported by Ivy Tech Community College's Culinary Arts and Hospitality program you get amazing international cuisine and a nearly 360 degree view of Indianapolis. Student chef's plan and prepare a special each evening. The wine list is really great and the specialty cocktails fun. Full dinners can run up to $30.00 without alcohol and lunches can be close to $20.00. This is a special event place - I've had many birthday celebrations and business lunches. Free and convenient parking is just outside the door. This is an amazing way for Ivy Tech to reuse the old Stouffer's Hotel!

Wonderful Restaurant Great Food
We went to Courses to celebrate a birthday. It was very nice, elegant, even. It was a very quiet, relaxing atmosphere. The view of downtown Indy was beautiful even though we were there on a rainy night. We ordered a variety of entrees: beef short ribs, shrimp and salmon and all were delicious. The salmon and the green beans were the best I've ever had. The restaurant was a bit more expensive than your run-of-the-mill steakhouse, but the food and atmosphere were so much better it was worth it. I like the idea of supporting the students in the restaurant and we were very pleased with the meal. It's probably not for everyday dinners, but for special occasions, it is great.

I would go again!
What a gem. The food was great, the ambience professional and classy, the view wonderful. The server made me feel welcome and was both knowledgable and charming. In addition, the opportunity to support a quality program was a bonus.

The meatballs, and ESPECIALLY
The meatballs, and ESPECIALLY the gravy were outstanding!
The wait time for someone to at least even greet you could use a lot of work, though.
The other food was excellent!
And the price was totally surprising (in a good way)!

Wow! What a hiddent treasure!
Views like no place in the city at all times of year! This place is the jewel of the near north side of Indianapolis and well worth the trip from anywhere in town.

My co-workers and I went to
My co-workers and I went to lunch to celebrate my birthday. Courses was a great choice! The restaurant is run entirely by IvyTech students - both FOH and BOH. Our server was absolutely wonderful - very attentive, friendly. The views of downtown Indy from the penthouse were incredible. It made the restaurant feel very exclusive.
I started with the Korean Dumplings as an app., and had the Cuban Sandwich as my lunch entree. Both were delicious! Food was served prompt and hot! And, as an added bonus, they brought out a slice of Sacher Torte as a birthday dessert. My favorite! I plan to return and hopefully purchase a whole Sacher Torte - it was so good!

Courses gives a great view of the city, which matches the decor. The service was genuine, friendly, and thorough. I met a friend for lunch and we both thought our meals were prepared well and a good deal for the price. I have already recommended Courses to friends and colleagues. I anticipate taking my wife on a date there soon!
