The restaurant is at the entrance of the Omni Hotel. Which meant that every time a guest entered the hotel a breeze would run through the entire restaurant. It was below freezing out on NYE and we felt like we were eating outside. I would not recommend eating here on a cold evening. The food was good. The highlight was the sugar cream pie!! It was the best we’ve had....ever! The waiter was very attentive.
We went for a nice Christmas dinner so we wouldn't need to cook and clean. The environment was very pleasant as was our server. Not very many menu options but I personally think that's the key, very few things and they are all done to perfection. I started with the shrimp cocktail and moved to the salmon dinner with asparagus , I could not have been happier with those choices. I'll visit again and highly recommend 1913 to anyone who asks.
Food was really excellent. Locally sourced and fresh tasting. Wonderful vegetarian options. Staff was superior and decor very comfortable yet classy.
I took my husband to the 1913 Restaurant for Christmas breakfast. My plan was to have the the breakfast buffet, as it would be a special surprise for him. I was disappointed that the buffet was not being served. I was not given a reason, but was given an apology. I ordered the Hoosier Breakfast which was nothing special. I did enjoy the blueberry maple sausage patties, and my husband liked his Malt Waffle with Blueberry Compote. The service was outstanding and the staff were very friendly and attentive, which helped make up for the disappointment. I would still like to try the buffet, and I would also consider returning to try their dinner menu.
On one of the busiest dinner days of the year (Saturday during the PRI show), we were able to get a reservation for 6 here. We were a little concerned when we arrived to find a nearly empty restaurant. Those concerns quickly vanished as we took our first bite. The food was excellent as was the service. I would highly recommend this best kept secret in the heart of downtown Indianapolis.
We had thanksgiving dinner at 1913 and could not have been happier. The music was a perfect backdrop too. Chef used a lot of local products and the staff was very helpful and attentive though not overbearing. I'd highly recommend the Omni for any special occasion.
The food was fabulous. Unfortunately the service was terrible. We actually had to ask to have our waiter sent to our table to refill water and order drinks. When he finally did arrive, he didn't explain or apologize and was extremely short with us. As a party of 8, his tip was included. Even the manager that came to assist was less than friendly. We ended up spending nearly three hours because the wait staff was so slow. The food, however, was terrific if you have all night.
The food was great, prepared my Chef John Camphor and the service was awesome by Lucy Hawkins.
Great food, attentive service and pleasant surroundings, we will be back!
Our waiter was absolutely clueless about the menu and couldn't recommend anything from the appetizers to the entrees. Service was horrible since no one ever came by the table to see if you needed a drink refill. I had the pork chop which was over cooked and deathly dry. My date had a salad with salmon on top which was also over cooked. I wouldn't recommend this restaurant to anyone for any reason.
