Our server, Noel, was excellent. Food and wine matched the service. We were there for a special event (anniversary) and we felt celebrated.

We live out of town so had not dined at Paterson's for several years. It was as elegant and delicious as we remembered. From the greeting to our seating, and serving it was all done in a warm and welcoming way. Our meal and service was outstanding

Great place to enjoy a work dinner with clients. It can get a little loud and the tables seem to be very close together. Food is outstanding and I had the best caprese salad I have ever had !

The combination of the atmosphere, service and food are difficult to beat. I would stack Peterson's up against the best steakhouses in the country.

It was our 48th Wedding Anniversary. We started out with cocktails, followed by otters, delicately fried and placed in the shell. There were 6 and incredibly delicious. I had a very crispy Caesar salad and my husband enjoyed a fresh beet salad with a Vinaigrette dressing, which he said was very good. My main course was Fruts Del Mar, served on a small amount of linguini. The sea food included shrimp, mussels and fish.
My husband had swordfish and it was a lovely, piece of fish. Neither of us felt like steak and we’re very pleased with our choices. The service was wonderful and our server very thoughtful and pleasant. She brought us a piece of cheesecake for our Anniversary and it too was excellent!

I realize we were here for Devour Indy, But the salad was small as was the cheesecake. We were informed that we had received the last Tequila Mockingbird as they had run out of ingredients. Don’t get me wrong the meal was fine, but if you are using Devour as a vehicle to gain new customers, treat them as everyday guest not someone on the cheap.

Excellent date night at Peterson's. Everything was great from the service from Coy, our server to the appetizers, to the entree, to the desert. Looking forward to the next time.

Great food. We took advantage of the Devour Indy menu. Understand that the menu is developed special for Devour, the presentation was less than impressive. I had the 6 oz. Filet which was great, but the vegetables were not the best work and the plate presentation was unimpressive. Assume that if you order the Devour value, you receive less than what Peterson's routinely delivers. With that being said,
the steak is always worth visiting again. We will be back.

For the price the food is not up to par...maybe it was just because we ordered off of the devour menu. Steak was way over cooked and so was salmon.

We tried Peterson's for Devour Indy. We have had much better steak dinners at other restaurants during Devour Indy. They skimped on the portions of everything! The service was great but it isn't a restaurant we would go to again for Devour Indy.

Of all of the high-end restaurants in Indianapolis, Peterson's is the best of the best, in our opinion. The atmosphere is warm & cozy with just enough background music so as not to overwhelm. The service is outstanding and the food is prepared by expert hands. This is the example for all High-end restaurants to follow to justify the price. We wish that we could eat there more frequently, but the price is a bit prohibitive for the average diner. We hope to return again for future special occasions.

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful Birthday meal at Peterson's! First off, our server's name is Noel. Amazingly attentive, anticipated what we would need next, careful to give us privacy. There wasn't a weak link in the meal. Great ambiance, sparkling clean, wonderfully professional and romantic at the same time...this is a special occasion establishment that will NOT disappoint!

Excellent food and service! We took advantage of the Devour Indy week. I started with the lobster bisque which was great. My wife had the petite crab cake and while it was very good, the key word here was petite. We both had the filet mignon. Her’s was the 6 oz and mine was the 8 oz for $10 more. They were both prepared medium and to perfection. Both came with roasted potatoes, broccoli and carrots. Dessert consisted of creme brulee’ and chocolate pot de creme. We accompanied the entire dinner with a bottle of Spanish red wine. A most excellent dining experience!! Will definitely go back!

Bill did a fabulous job - attentive but not obtrusive. The food was exquisite as always. We have never had a bad meal at Peterson’s. Wish we could afford to come here each week. Don’t get me wrong. The value of the total experience is well worth the dollars spent. We’re just on a retiree budget 😁
