    If you like organic food then this is the place. We have been here half a dozen times and it has always been good. The brunch items are a little out there but the do offer some traditional items. The biscuits and gravy are great as are the create your own omelets. Good coffee and superb service.

  • Beautiful setting with super fresh food
    OpenTable Diner Since 2005
    Dined on 11/22/2014
    After enjoying the outdoor fire pit on our way in we were treated to a beautiful old barn with candles in every corner as the setting for dinner - a casual yet beautiful setting. The food was all fresh, seasonal, and organic. My most difficult decision was the salad because there were so many great choices. Lovely presentation, just the right amount of food, and all fresh and delicious. Would definitely recommend to anyone for a quiet, locally grown dinner in the country which is such a short drive from the city!

    My husband and I had dinner after the movies on a Saturday night. Out first time at the restaurant. We shared the cheese board for a starter - it was OK then I had the beet salad and I loved it! My husband had the soup of the day which he found very tasty. We shared the lamb entree since we can't eat that much after popcorn. The juniper berry/sorrel/turnip accompaniment was delicious! I had Malmsley (similar to tawny port) and my husband chocolate ice cream for dessert. Both were excellent. The somewhat rustic atmosphere was pleasant and the service of waitress, water person and other staff very attentive but not intrusive. The wine list had plenty of choices across price ranges. All in all a lovely evening.

    Many times, when I've been to a restaurant for the first time, I wait to review. You never know if the stars aligned just for that visit. Well, I'm here to tell you that The Loft at TP gets it right every time. Super romantic if you get a seat on the porch (heated). It's not inexpensive, but as long as it doesn't disappoint, it's well worth it to me. Enjoy.

    The food was outstanding. I had the Walleye and my husband had the lamb, but were excellent. The cheese plate and house smoked salmon were delicious too. Trader Point toffee sundae is always great for dessert. Sarah, our service was very personable, and didn't miss a beat. We will be back!

    Had a special, memorable dinner while in town visiting our son. Service was attentive and food was delicious. We even had an appetizer and dessert...which we never do...just to experience the full menu. We certainly plan to return on our next visit to this great city and look forward to arriving early to tour the farm and market store.

    We had requested not to be seated near the Dairy Bar and the hostess took us directly to a table for 2 at the Dairy Bar when other options were available. Our lovely waitress had a huge party and was not nearly as attentive as usual. The food was very slow in coming out of the kitchen, likely due to the strain of the large party. This is a favorite restaurant of ours and we came away disappointed.

    Great lunch on a sunny fall afternoon. Got the opportunity to sit on the heated deck which was very nice. Three Floyds beer selection was better than most and the unique local selections were superb. We had the cheese plate which had some new items. Several entrees had unique local veg even this time of year.

    This is the third time we have been here for brunch. The fruit plate is outstanding and compliments egg dishes well. I had the vegetable strata and my husband an omelet. Both were served piping hot. Toast was an option with the omelet and the cinnamon sugar on the table was an added touch. We will return. The only draw back was we had to walk so far on a stoney parking lot. I almost fell at one point!

    Farm-to-table simply does not adequately describe this place, as the table is already at the farm! Food at a restaurant does not come more freshly and skillfully prepared or more beautifully presented than it does at The Loft at Traders Point. Tucked away in the rolling hills near Zionsville, it is truly a hidden gem. My wife and I live 5 minutes away, and it has become our clear favorite restaurant in the city.

    We met friends for Sunday brunch and had the pleasure of eating outside. For a former farm girl, it was a joy to be in the country, view the scenery, appreciate the smells of the cheese and cows and just relax. The staff was great in not hurrying us and we truly enjoyed the experience. We did take advantage of a beautiful day and walked around the farm after brunch - lovely place. We are looking forward to bringing other friends soon!

    Sat on the porch. We did have a reservation which I recommend for Sunday brunch as it was quite busy. The menu is unique and items are organic and the cheeses, yogurt, and ice creams are made there. I had the Tortilla hash which I found to be just ok. It is vegetarian but not that appealing. Two over cooked fried eggs on soggy tortilla's with a spoonful of avocado cream. The French toast looked great. Fruit plate was standard berries, pineapple and Melon which was hard and not edible. $13.00 The prices are on the High side. Noise level was quite loud as we were seated next to a group of 12. Service was very good. It's a fun place to go but still trying to find something on the menu worth the price. $100 with tip for 3 people, no alcohol.

    sitting out on the deck on a fall evening was lovely, thanks to the heaters. really enjoyed the view until sundown. a local hunter was shooting some practice rounds, which was slightly disconcerting, but a lovely ambiance. otherwise, it was quieter on the deck than inside, which gave us a chance to talk.

    This was our fist time at The Loft and we absolutely LOVED it. The food was delicious and the view of the sunset while we ate was beautiful. We did have some things which prevented us from giving this 5 stars. We ordered the egg tartine appetizer and while my egg was cooked perfectly, my boyfriend's was overcooked, which he was disappointed about. The tables and chairs are outdoor patio furniture which is not very comfortable. The chairs have wicker which was cutting into my legs while I was sitting in it. The table was flimsy and had a hole in the middle for an umbrella which was annoying and also a little tacky. I am sure they could get better tables! Other than those two small things, we love it and will be back for sure.

    My mom and I have dined at the Loft for brunch on several occasions and have enjoyed the food and service every time. However this particular visit was off as that my mother waffles were burned or very hard and we brought it to the waitress attention and she just blew our concern off by changing the subject to " would you like dessert?" Also when my mother was ordering the waitress was not helpful at all. She did not try and suggest and alternative. I felt like the waitress' attitude was aloof to say the least. We decided to come back and give another try because we do appreciate the freshness of the produces etc. aaww!
