Took 3 teenage girls here before an escape room to enjoy Devour Indy. They were thrilled. Service outstanding as usual. Music very loud when we were first seated but was rectified quickly and happily. Thanks for another great meal!!

Not sure if it’s coincidence that the 2 times I’ve booked via open table I’ve gotten the same corner booth that’s kind of crowded & right. Food is always consistent here & menu is pretty big.

Everything was what I would expected from a higher end steak house. My only food concern was the Mac and Cheese. It wasn't as cheesey as I would think it needed to be. Just tasted like buttery noodles. But everything else was perfect. I would definitely come back.

Get the spicy shrimp cocktail, it’ll change your life. The hidden gem is the pork chop entree. Yes it’s a steakhouse, but no you won’t regret the decision.

Our bill for 4 people with tip was 380.00. That included 3 Ribeyes with Oscar style upgrade, one scallop dish and 2 drinks a piece. The price isn’t Ben my issue. You know when you come to any expensive steakhouse you are primarily paying for quality ingredients and service.
Let’s tackle the easy one first. My daughters ribeye was so tough she has to saw into it. It was medium so there was no reason for this.
What really earned them this rating was the service. We were celebrating my daughters 21st birthday. The waiter could have at least pretended to be interested. He appeared to be bored with us and his job in general the entire time. I have worked in fine dining so I may pick up on things some others won’t but they are all part of a good service. We received bread but no bread plates. We asked the waiter for bread plates and he brought back both bread and bread plates and then was annoyed at us for misunderstanding what we said.
The food runner came and started doing what is called “auctioning” off food. He stood at his tray and asked whose is this. Instead of delivering the meal to each seat, he handed them across the table. He handed my scallop plate to me which was very hot and then said, “Oh yeah it is very hot.”
The waiter then came over and asked how everything was. Two out of three had not cut into their steaks. My husband said everything was fine. I told them all to cut into their steaks to make sure they were cooked properly. He didn’t even wait around to see if they were. This is so basic in a steak restaurant. I then watched as he handed a check to a table full of dirty plates. I could continue but I think I made my point.

On a positive note, the one time I ate at Harry and Izzys on the North side the service was much better.

We were seated in the balcony where several parties were & the noise was very loud. Would rather have been placed in a area where maybe only couples were seated. The waiter was decent but not overly attentive. While ordering was not asked if we wanted salads or anything extra. Have had better experience at less expensive restaurants.

The food was great, but the attention to detail and courtesies provided by all of the staff was truly outstanding! One person in our party had several food allergies and they took plenty of time to explain the menu to her and explain the food preparation and bought her food out separately. Though we stayed longer than they expected, they were very kind in offering us a different table so they could use our table for a larger party that had a reservation. This could have gone very wrong, but they handled everything very well!

Absolutely stunning. I had high expectations after research of the place and it FAR exceeded them. Our waiter, Brad, was nothing short of remarkable. He made the experience that much more memorable. The ribeye was euphoric with the perfect amount of funk accented by the Gorgonzola butter. The famous shrimp cocktail will certainly clear things up, but was incredible. We will certainly be visiting here again, and again...
