    We had an outside table on a very cool September evening. The deck heaters were lit without hesitation which kept everyone at the table comfortable. The group had a boneless ribeye, scallops a uinoa and a half roasted chicken special. Good beer and wine selection with many Indiana grown/bottled selections. Food was flavorful, well presented and service was outstanding. Everything with the chicken dinner was raised right there on the farm. We take the kids there for breakfast and ice cream fairly often. Will now be a go to for dinners without them too.

    This is a treat for good sustainable food in a casual atmosphere but be prepared to spend upwards of 25-40% more than you would at comparable restaurants. Outdoor dining with a nice view of the farm is preferred when the weather permits.

    The Loft is my favorite restaurant. The food, service and ambience is fantastic. The only reason I rated the food as moderate this time is because the short ribs were quite fatty. Any other time I would rate the food as excellent. Thank you for providing Indy with such a unique and yummy dining experience.

    My husband and I went with our two children, ages 13 and 7, and enjoyed dinner on the enclosed patio. It was a Friday evening so there was live music to add to the gorgeous setting. The service was excellent and they were also quite careful in preparing my gluten free meal. The food was delicious!

    First time for dinner and I can't say enough good things about Traders Point. Service was great, our waitress was helpful, there when we needed her. We sat out in the screened porch area and while there were others out there, the noise level was quiet, it was so nice not to have to talk above the noise. The food...amazing! All three of us had something different and shared a bite. Each choice was a winner. Can't wait to go back. 1/2 price wine by the glass on Wed. Nights was a nice surprise too!

    There really is no other place like The Loft in Indy. If you care at all about the kind of food you put into your body this is THE place to dine. Everything here is farm-to-table and absolutely delicious. It was not our first visit and it will not be our last. If you go - you absolutely must get the cheese board, trust me, get the cheese board…you will not be disappointed.

    This is the second occasion we have visited TP and been disappointed. I think they are trying too hard to impress and forgetting the most important feature of the meal - enjoyable taste! We had the lamb and the filet. I am not a fan of lamb but the lamb belly looked fatty and difficult to cut. My filet was prepared to order and tender but lacked flavor. Very small amount of cold bernaise butter. It was paired with great potatoes and some greens that were so bitter they seemed burned and impossible to eat. I ordered the brownie for dessert and it was grainy and seemed to be raw. I felt like I was eating spoonfuls of raw sugar. It was inedible. I love the concept but the food was disappointing at best. For the money I expect more.

    Amazing resturant. All organic. Food is wonderful. Try their homemade ice cream and cheese platter. You can go for brunch, lunch or dinner. Stroll around the farm and even watch cows being milked daily at 4 p. we took our 2 year old to lunch. She loved their chocolate milk. Everything is so fresh.

    To start off, we we're there on a Thursday night when bottles of wine are half-price. We ordered the smoked salmon appetizer and it looked like a work of art when it arrived at the table. It was decorated with beautiful edible flower pedals from the restaurants own garden. My wife ordered the scallops and I had the lamb tenderloin, both of which were perfectly prepared and tasted amazing. The service was off the chart, the ambience on the outside upper deck overlooking the farm and garden was very relaxing. A perfect choice to celebrate our wedding anniversary.

    I live out of town and travel to Indianapolis once a year. I was really looking forward to brunch at Trader's Point. I ordered an omelette with tomatoes, spinach and cheese. It came with sun dried tomatoes (which was an option, but I chose fresh.) Before I realized the mix-up, our waiter was gone. I wanted to send the omelette back but too much time passed before someone came to our table. I didn't want my friend to eat alone so I just ate the omelette. It was very disappointing. Not only did it have sun dried tomatoes, it had a huge quantity of sun dried tomatoes which were dry. Along with the very dry omelette, it was not good. My friend liked her meal, but I did not.

    We had reservations, but the only tables available upon arrival were next to hostess stand and outside, two bad options. We chose outside; think flies and lots of mosquito bites. My pork chop, ordered medium, was served raw inside. The server, despite her superior attitude, didn't once check on our table after the food was served. The bus staff was not trained to address my situation (their words), so I went without a meal while my party finished theirs. The server offered to not charge for my meal. So gracious since I couldn't eat it. Nothing else was done to address my unpleasant experience. So disappointed, since I had anticipated dining here for some time.

Dinner order was placed and then the wait began. We did not receive order for 1 hour, even after asking Rachel which totally blew us off by stating it would be right out 10 mins later it arrived. Spoke with a manager did not get his name, his offer was I will look into that! Not likely to return. Dined 08/02/14 @ 6pm, departed after 8pm!

    We have dined at TP several times before, but this visit we introduced the restaurant to a family of 4 visiting from northern Indiana. As always, the food, service and overall experience was unique and very enjoyable. The new kitchen looks spectacular from the outside and the outside dining area is very inviting. This is a local gem that one must give a try. A little pricey but worth the investment.

    Incredible find--wish I lived in Indianapolis so I could eat here at least weekly. It's possible to find something pleasing on a small budget, and also possible to indulge in a multi-course meal with beverage pairings. There's even a little market where one can purchase their cheese and other local products. Would be an amazing place for a wedding or other large event, as the grounds offer indoor, outdoor, and screened in seating, plus gardens and open space for walks.
