    Great first time experience! Great value/pricing. A few tweaks to the meal and it would be perfect. Salad a little over dressed, duck could have used more sides. Otherwise an amazing meal!

    We were so happy to support the students and staff putting on tonights dinner. Great cocktails, a wonderful bottle of wine, great bar staff and service. Both appetizers were delicious (mushroom soup and a pork stuffed tomato), entrees were inspired and very well cooked (beef Madeira, and duck with a delicious broccoli side). Desserts were beautifully done. Plating was tidy and attractive. Great views of the city, and we very much appreciated the interaction and level of service we received! I appreciated the front desk and how easy coat check was. Will be back and recommend!

    Another delicious meal. A 'must try' if you've never been. Also got the French silk pie. The site only allows 4 photos.

    What a tremendous value eating here for lunch is here as part of Ivy Tech's Culinary Training Program. For $20 per person, you get a 3-course meal of appetizer, entree and dessert. There are several choices for the first two courses and usually one or two items for dessert. Beer is as inexpensive as $2 and glasses of wine for $8 per glass or $15 for a bottle. Students are learning to run a restaurant from all aspects including the hostess station, servers, manager and cooks. Tables are set with white table clothes with nice plates and silverware. It's a very nice venue which decades ago was a Marriott Hotel restaurant. It's on the top penthouse floor with great views of the city from 3 sides. Very enjoyable.

    Our group of four enjoyed a delightful lunch at Courses with great views of downtown Indianapolis. The waitress was very competent, answered our menu questions and attended to everything to make our meal enjoyable. Thanks to the students in the kitchen, the entrees were amazing especially the Asado beef roasted over fire. We finished our meal choosing between two wonderfully different desserts. The Courses restaurant is a gem in the city and we have been there many times and will continue looking forward to enjoying the dining experiences. seated by the windows overlooking the Indianapolis skyline. The waitress was very competent and assisted us with our menu questions. As a starter, the choice of appetizers pleased everyone. The entree of delicious beef was roasted to perfection by the students in the kitchen. We finished our meal with decadent desserts. This was the best dining experience we have had at the Courses and a gem of a restaurant!

    I highly recommend supporting the Ivy Tech culinary program by dining at Courses. The menu offerings are outstanding and the value is exceptional. You will also meet the wonderful youth involved in the program who are learning and practicing real time. The views from the penthouse dining room are spectacular! Perhaps I will see you there soon. I plan to take advantage of each opportunity to dine at Courses!
