Had I known this was in a hotel we would not have gone! The price point was based on the fact it was in a noisy, child-ridden, over-priced, low-quality, breakfast to Nightcap-hotel restaurant...not because it’s a quality restaurant. It was like eating crappy food with the airport up charge! The servers were so nice and tried-but you can’t make the ambiance and food better with service. I can’t believe this was in the same group as other restaurants with great food and great dining. We tried to have a nice evening out and instead listened the 12yr old girl dance team scream and eat delivery pizza next to us while we picked at our food that tasted of griddle oil. 1/4 ate their meal..the 1, was the one who ordered tiny portion breakfast at 7:30pm! What a waste of an evening out!

If you like 50 dollar per plate meals in the middle of a busy lobby of a hotel, they have got you.

It's not located in a hotel, like a lot of restaurants it's in a hotel lobby...surrounded by luggage carrying field hockey teams.

The waitress couldn't care less that we were there and was not interested okn even taking our order. 25 min with appetizers, no refills and I had to go to the bar to cash out to leave withoiut dinner.

Appetizer was ok. Disappointed that we didn't get to the food part of the meal.


Go somewhere else.

Service was extremely slow. Steak was not a great cut of meat, and although inside temperature was appropriate, the outside of the steak looks over cooked, as if left under a heat lamp for hours...

Something must have changed since all the many favorable reviews. Our visit was terrible. Our bartender was aloof and inattentive. His counterpart, however; Courtney, did well in saving the day and trying to make things right. The food, Chicken dish, was terrible. My suspicion is it was pre cooked hours ago then microwaved for serving. My drink was also made incorrectly. Not an innocent mistake... which is understandable. No, I asked for liquor A. And stressed as much under no uncertain terms. lol. Served liquor B. Like... ??? A decent place to hang out... ambiance. Decor.... but I don't recommend dining here. $100 wasted. And I'm still hungry.

Food was not good. the lobster pasta was all cheese and old lobster. our server rolled his eyes at my husband 3-4 times. As well as took for ever to get some drinks. Was looking forward to finding a gem. Was greatly disappointed and will NEVER go back. Spent so much money, fast food would have been better.

Not normally a reviewer on these things but had such a pleasant evening, I had to say something. It's my husband and my first visit to Indianapolis and we were recommended Grille 39 so we made a reservation. We were promptly seated and our server was absolutely lovely. Quick and polite service is where it's at and that's what he gave. We had the duck wings for an app and they were crispy and delicious. We then moved on to steaks and we were not disappointed by those either. All in all a fantastic experience and if we are ever back this way, we will stop by here for sure!

My husband and I were headed out to dinner for our 17th anniversary. We decided to try to stay close to home. Open Table had a point promotion going on for Grille 39 and the reviews and ratings looked good so I thought it would be worth it to try it out. I was a little hesitant because it was a restaurant in a suburban hotel. For some reason that sort of troubles me! Service was awful but the food redeemed this restaurant.

We had super slow service even though when we arrived there didn't appear to be any other diners. After notifying the host stand about the service, we did receive excellent service after this notification. Apparently a unexpected large party came in after us that received priority service over our table.

The food, though, completely redeemed any ill will there was towards our service. My husband's steak was excellent and prepared exactly how he ordered. My sea bass was perfectly cooked and the lemon caper sauce was delicious. We didn't realize the sides were sort of family style, so we both ordered garlic mashed potatoes and we could have easily shared the one portion between the two of us. My son ordered a black angus burger and he said it was excellent as well.

Then there was the truffle mac & cheese. The portion was huge, which we found out later when we got our bill why - they had given us the entree sized order instead of the side order. This was taken care of as well.

Being a Yelp user, when we checked in at the restaurant, we received a free dessert with a entree purchase so we took advantage of this offer and order the recommended Apple Cobbler dessert. It is one of the made in the restaurant desserts. It was a large portion - don't order this alone and was excellent! Definitely a gem to find in a suburban hotel!

Very poor service and experience. Started off with long wait for appetizers. Got salads first (huh?) then apps. Steaks were both way over cooked which was a sad waste of good meat. Service was substandard for normal dinning but WAY substandard fine dinning (which it's not). Could have gone to plenty of great fine dinning in Carmel that was way better than this hotel restaurant. Manager tried to make it right but highly doubt I'll ever be back.

Made a reservation for 14 in our party for lunch, celebrating a co-worker's birthday. Our server was practically impossible to find, and she paid no attention to our group. We had to search for her to get our checks due to slow service.
The food was decent on the buffet (and the server incorrectly assumed we all wanted the buffet). They didn't do a great job of keeping the buffet stocked.
Overall, a very underwhelming experience.

Have always enjoyed gong to Grille 39, but this time was different. The lobster spaghetti was great as always, but the brocolini was ice cold. Bread was not offered, we had to ask for it and the waiter, Joey, was not very attentive. We were looking around for the waiter because we wanted more water and I had to get it myself. Have always enjoyed the contemporary music before but couldn't even hear it this time.

Valentines dinner with my bride. 4 courses, cold seafood appetizer included crab claws, shrimp Mahi Mahi and oysters on the half shell. All were very tasty. Salad and Lobster bisque were what we had for the 2nd course, both very tasty. Third course was a grilled pork chop with potatoes and bacon Brussel sprouts and a rib eye steak. Followed by a variety of house made chocolates. Dinner also included a bottle of wine. Overall it was a very nice dinner. Joey was our server and he did a great job of taking care of us.

Food was great (steak/crab cakes/lobster spaghetti) and the chocolate strawberries topped off the evening.

Not worth the money. We were served a wrong meal, waiter brought glasses of champagne as an apology (we don't drink), then charged the higher price of the wrong meal with no further apology. Food not what you'd expect for the price. Even the Coke tasted weird and seemed like it had been sitting around a couple hours. As icing on the cake, the loop wasn't closed with OpenTable so we were notified of pulling a no-show.

Our waiter Don was a delight and such a pro. He said he was a bartender but served our table. He had great recommendations on wine and cocktails AND the food was excellent. He was available but not intrusive or hovering. The live fireplace was cozy and lobby with water falls and modern decor is outstanding. A hidden gem so close we forget about it since it is in a hotel.

Our meal was very good, three of us had the salmon and while the salmon was outstanding the risotto was average. We liked the fact that it is a nice quiet place - you can visit without having to shout to each other. I was expecting more of an elegant dining area, it is open to the bar and where people walk through the hotel but it still had a nice atmosphere.

This was our first visit and we were pleasantly surprised. Our server, Don, was attentive without being intrusive. The food was great. The only negative was the table in front of the fireplace was empty, but dirty. No effort made to clean it and seat us there; they just seated us nearby. They were not that busy, so why not make an effort to quickly clean your best table?

I have been to Grille 39 numerous times living in west Carmel. The experience this time was disappointing. Hostess was rude. Service was lackluster. Menu hasn't changed since it opened. My NY strip was poorly prepared. Grille39 has become just a crappy hotel bar. In an area with many options, I will go elsewhere in the future.

I would have given Grille 39 5 out of 5 stars if it hadn't been for my date receiving her drink in a glass that was chipped on the rim, me not receiving my salmon the way I ordered it, Oscar Style, and the way their ice cream was presented.

Having a chipped glass is just not acceptable and shows a lack of attention to detail as well as safety. Everything about this place was classy except for their ice cream, which was brought to our table in carton, just like you would find it in a grocery store or gas station. I think if the rest of your menu is presented with class, you should serve your ice cream in a dish, not in the container it came in. Although my salmon was prepared very well and very delicious, I ordered it Oscar Style and I did not receive it that way. I will note that I was not charged for the additional topping to the salmon, but again there was a lack of attention to detail as either the server or the chef forgot how I had ordered my entree.

One of the worst restaurants that I have ever eaten at. Food was flavorless except for the refrigerator taste of the lobster in the spaghetti. Appetizer was terrible. The only decent thing I had was the dessert which I found out was not prepared in-house, it was "store-bought". Marriott really needs to look at the restaurants in all of their Renaissance hotels. This was the second bad experience that I've had at a Renaissance.
