    On the night we chose to have dinner at Shula's they had an unfortunate kitchen incident which prevented them from producing their signature high quality fare. Apparently they lost their exhaust fans which prevented any chance of having a properly cooked piece of meat. The steak had the barest amount of color and absolutely no crust or character, which greatly diminished its appearance, appeal and taste. Their side dishes lacked flavor and the mashed potatoes, in particular, were glutteny and ice cold, even after we insisted on them being the one item that absolutely needed to be steaming hot. We're hoping this was not typical of the dining experience one could hope to expect, but they still should have comped the steak, or we should have just called it a night after the appetizers showed up and we were informed of an issue in the kitchen. They never indicated they would be unable to produce the steak in the manner we requested. We also had to ask for bread, which didn't even show up at our table until after the poorly cooked steak made its unfortunate debut. Sad when the high point of your meal is your bottle of wine, and your delightful server who was trying her best but still was unable to help salvage the evening. We'll be contacting corporate over this failing and shortfall on Shula's part.

    We got our table at 615. The restaurant was busy, as it was the night of the Colts-Pats game, but not overbooked. A server did not get to our table for 15 minutes and we did not get our drinks delivered until 645. We ordered dinner and appetizers all at once. At 745 the manager came to our table and told us that they were out of scallops, which 2 of the 4 dinners were to have. She suggested a switch to trout for the person who ordered the sea scallop entree. When they finally brought the food out at 8, mind you they knew we were going to the game and that kickoff was at 830, the trout was not good and my steak was prepared correctly, but was luke warm at best. It was obvious that it had sat for a while. Given my hunger and the time, we ate as fast as we could and left. The manager did not charge for the trout dinner. Also, throughout the wait to get food, we were constantly running out of drinks, not to mention that the first beer that I ordered, they had run out of and had to ask for me to change. It was just not a good experience.

    My husband and I ate at Shula's last Sunday evening before a Colts game. The service and food were very good. The Calamari appetizer was especially good. Our steaks were grilled as ordered and served with an excellent side dish of roasted corn. I would recommend Shula's for a great dinner along with great service.

    Having never eaten at a Shula's, I did not have any expectations; however, I have dined in restaurants at this level in over 20 countries and there are general expectations for any establishment such as this. Shula's, by far, exceeded those expectations. The service was impeccable. We were greeted and shown to our seats immediately. Our main waiter, Vladimir, was very knowledgeable and guided our choices perfectly. He was assisted by Henry, who was equally professional and very prompt; additionally, Matt was the service/water lead and my glass never reached the halfway mark. The management staff made a point to visit our table (celebrating an anniversary) which added a personal touch. The steak and sides were the best I've had!

    Had terrible service. Our waiter seemed new and we only saw him once. Long wait between salads and entrees. Side came later as they dropped the first one. Had a very long wait for anyone to clear our plates away. Valet parking wasn't on bill so had to wait again for that. There are so many great restaurants now that when you have bad service it makes sense to not return.

    Dinner for 4, and everyone was happy. My wife's steak was undercooked - a solid rare on a medium order, but that was quickly corrected. My steak, the 24 oz Porterhouse was good, but there was a cartilage vein running through the NY side that took some legitimate sawing to get through. Great appetizers, good entrees, decent wine (good for price), didn't expect my cognac in an Old fashioned glass, though. A good dining experience, and handy since we were staying in the Westin. I'm a bit shaky on the bang for the buck, though. All said, the check was nearly $500. I've had many comparable meals (and several better) for considerably less.

    On Friday night we were told you were out of limoncello. The same for Saturday night. Go out and buy a bottle at the liquor store bu take care of your customers. On Saturday night we couldn 't have Irish Coffee because the bar had no coffee. What? Have some coffee. On Sunday exactly at 11 two guests next to us were told it was too late to have the breakfast buffet even tho it was still up and full. Learn what a customer is and serve them. They are more important than you are .

    I've eaten at a Shula's before but never for breakfast. It was a great spot for a business breakfast while in town for a conference. Eggs Benedict we're delist. My only issue was the service. Our server could not have been less interested in letting us order off the menu since a buffee was also available. She was absent for refills, and it took about 20 minutes to get our check and pay.

    New to area so I thought I would give Shula's a try. They asked repeatedly if I was there for the devour indy promotion. Once I said yes, I was doomed. Arrived 45 minutes early but they said they could not seat me early. When I was seated the place was over 1/2 empty, absolutely no reason why they made me stand there waiting to be seated. Despite numerous tables open by a window with a nice view, I was seated by a noisy pathway. They were obviously providing two dining experiences, one for those that answered Yes for Devour Indy and another for those that answered No.

    Let me start by saying normally food and service is excellent, I took my wife here for her birthday on 23 Aug 14, I previously heard of people getting bad for and poor service during " devour downtown" which I did not know was going on until i was asked by the receptionist were we here for that to make a long story short our server acted as if she would rather be anywhere else on the planet except serving us the cowboy ribeye was very bland and over cooked our creamed spinach was cold my wife's salmon was under cooked this is usually one of our favorites, I don't know what the problem was this time but if we do return to Shula's it WILL NOT BE DURING "DEVOUR DOWNTOWN" VERY DISAPPOINTING BIRTHDAY DINNER!!!

    We have eaten at Shula's before during Devour Downtown, and been totally blown away by the great dinners, super service, and all-around good experience. This trip (also during Devour Downtown) proved to be somewhat disappointing. The food was good (not great) - our dinners were not particularly hot when delivered to our table, but they were not cold. We did not receive a basket of rolls with our salads, which appeared to be delivered to other tables around us, but maybe they just don't do that for Devour. Our steaks were good, but not particularly outstanding, and the vegetables were just OK. Service was OK, not great, not terrible. It will probably be awhile before we return.

    We visited during devour downtown and was not completely impressed. Drinks were overpriced, $5 bottle beer, it's almost cheaper to drink at a colts game, at least you get more per ounce, their "white sangria" was basically a shot of wine in a martini glass with orange juice. Not worth $12. Steak was great, tender, cooked perfect, but the garlic potatoes...you almost had to use your steak knife to cut. They were super dry. Veggies were ok. Service was great, but won't be back.

    We went during Devour Downtown, the second time this year we went to Shulas. Absolutely fabulous. I told my wife that I could see Shulas becoming my favorite higher end restaurant downtown - above Harry and Izzy's - which is currently our favorite. It has such a clean, calm, stable, quiet ambiance. Harry's is clangy and frenetic, which is good sometimes too. But when you want to actually communicate during dinner, this is the best place.

    We dined during Devour Downtown. I specifically looked through the online menu to make my restaurant selection. When I viewed the Shula's menu under the starters there was a "shrimp choice" and under the desserts there was a "chocolate cake choice." After arriving we noticed neither one of those choices were on the devour downtown menu. This proved to be disappointing. Overall our dining experience was enjoyable. The bread was the highlight. We just weren't expecting the differences in the menu options.
