It was a little Chilly in the area where we were sitting... almost a private area near Illinois street in that room. Needs to be warmer.

Once we were seated, we had a very good experience. The food and food service were superb. However, on arrival we had a less than pleasant entry to the facility. We had made a reservation online, and there was either a transcription error or technical error and the time was put in at 11:00 when the reservation was for 11:30 for a party of 10. We arrived at 11:30 when the reservation was supposed to be for, and they told us that we missed our reservation and that the table had been broken down. The hostess looked annoyed at us, and didn't even accept that it could be a potential error, and looked up at the staff in the balcony and waved her hand and pointed to us, and then rolled her eyes. This really annoyed half of the group of our party that was there. THen another hostess grabbed menus, and we thought we were supposed to follow and the other hostess, firmly said, "NO, not yet."
Outside of this error, honestly we will come back, but those of us that were present for this experience were less than impressed. Luckily, many of us have been to Harry and Izzy's before, and see this as an isolated event.
The ambiance of the downtown location, is amazing, and I would suggest anyone take the time to come for lunch or dinner here. The wait staff were very attentive and got the food out in a very reasonable timing, allowing time for different courses. We enjoyed our time for this celebration, and office lunch out.

I really don’t see the point of reservations if the staffing is not adequate to seat you at your reserved time. Patrons meet their obligation with a reservation, however, the staff has not ( on more than one occasion) mer theirs.

We went after the Colts game at 8 pm on Sunday evening. It was busy and we were sat by a very boisterous table. Our waitress paid very little attention to us. One in our party had issues with her entire meal, wrong salad, no bernaise sauce on her steak, forgot her cheesecake. Very poor first time experience.

Actually I was a little disappointed, normally when we visit H&I everything is great. This last Saturday wasn't the case, since when do you put course sea salt on green beans and asparagus....both vegetable servings were way over salted, if I want salt on my veggies, I'll put it on.
It was just my wife and myself, we try to get to H&I a least once a month to treat ourselves, but I'm not sure if we will be visiting that often in the future, we definitely learned that from now on we will be very specific about how we order our food and what we want and don't want.
I didn't pick yes or no to the question of would I recommend H&I to a friend, I'll be sure to mention to anyone that I might refer to your establishment to be aware of the over usage of salt.

Our experience would have been much more positive had the waiter not injected himself into our business conversations. It's one thing to be interactive, but this person was a bit over the line. He even went so far as trying to sell my clients on his personal business.

Great spot. First time. Love downtown Indy but had never visited. A little loud where we were seated, because it seemed congested. Food was great. Service was above average but things were missed and had to be made up for. Shrimp cocktail was mind blowing. Literally. Steak was fantastic.

Good sister restaurant to St. Elmo's. A little brighter and noisier than the more elegant St. Elmo's. Overall a decent experience. Service was fantastic. Adam and Tyler were very attentive and knowledgeable. Food quality in general was good. The halibut t-bone was highly recommended by my wife. The fries were probably the best I've ever had. However, I ordered the Izzy's strip steak and it was below par at best. Very tough, chewy and lacking flavor although I ordered with the orange brandy sauce on the side which maybe was a mistake. Maybe my expectations were high given my experience with St. Elmo's steaks in the past. I ended up ordering a side of horseradish in an effort to kick up the flavor thinking I would get the same spiciness as their cocktail sauce. Unfortunately, this batch of horseradish had no flavor and tasted very watery. I would definitely go back given the high service level and overall food quality, but I will probably try a different steak next time.

This was my first time at St. Elmo’s or Harry and Izzy’s so was excited to visit as I was in town for one night. The service was excellent. However, almost all of our dishes were overly salty. The filet slider, the Brussels sprouts salad, mashed potatoes, and even the salmon. The flavors of the dishes shouldn’t need so much salt. Maybe the salt shaker was looser than normal. The service balanced out what was a rather mediocre meal.
