Excellent specials were recommended by the server. Service was top notch!
The tuna appetizer was the best I have had in town.
Excellent all around. The best meal I have had in Indy in a long time.

We have been going to Petersons several years to celebrate birthdays and anniversaries. This last time everything was really good except the noise level by other patrons was uncomfortable - hard to talk. The food and service was excellent. I would recommend them for special occasion celebrations as well as once in a while just for regular dining.

This has become our favorite high end restaurant. My wife had the halibut special and I sampled it and we both thought it was as good as any we have ever had. I had the short rib with creamed spinach as a side and we split a side of au gratin potatoes. Both are excellent and of sufficient size to share and take home. Our primary server was Janet. We have had her before and she is a great server. We will definitely ask for her on our next visit.

Like so many things, not what it was.
Peterson's is still Peterson's, but the flavors are slipping. When you spend $200 for a dinner for two, you have high expectations, and you should.
We were seated at one of the "half booths" where one person sits on the bench next to the wall and the other sits on a chair with your back to the dining room. When this happens at Peterson's, the person in the chair also has a spotlight bearing down on them. Part of the problem with the spotlight is the shadow it creates directly over your part of the table. If this hasn't happened to you, I think you'd find it annoying too. And, maybe it was my imagination, but by the end of the meal I felt like a bag of french fries. Peterson's should consider LED bulbs. I had a filet with a couple of scallops. The steak was good. The outer char was excessive... but okay. The scallops were a nice size, but little flavor. I'm comparing these scallops to many previous scallops prepared at this location. I was disappointed, but they were still okay.
My wife had no complaints about her steak, but only ate about a third of it. The rest went home for doggie.
Most noticeable slippage was the service. Our server met the requirements. Past servers have always made me glad I chose Peterson's.
As stated by the stars I checked: Good... some things very good... but also uncomfortable and not a $200 meal.

My wife and I have been to Peterson's before and we like the restaurant. This was our anniversary. The staff treated us very well. the food was fantastic and everyone was really nice. Since it was our anniversary, they took a picture of us which we got to keep, and we had a free dessert. We really had a great experience. Thank you Peterson's!

Our meal was super good. We split the entree and salad which was divided in the kitchen. Our server, Sergio did a fantastic job. All four of us were stuffed but still managed to devour the very, very best Key Lime Pie ever. I would highly recommend Petersons.

Peterson's continues to be one of the top Indianapolis restaurants for food-quality and service. The ambiance is quiet and relaxed and ideal for conversation (no TVs or sports noise in the main dining room - just quiet jazz)). The steaks are world-class. Hard to beat. We will always return.

the service was great and my husband's steak was excellent, as was the dessert. the appetizer (avocado bites) sounded light but was actually pretty heavy for a starter. the chicken milanese was also really heavy and a bit too much for me personally. we'll be back but i'll definitely be asking more questions about the dishes i order!

My boyfriend and I went for our anniversary. We were immediately asked if we were dining for any special occasion. When we said it was our anniversary, they immediately offered to take our picture and printed it for us. We also received a complimentary dessert which we were not expecting. It was our first time dining there and we had a great experience with service and food.

We were there for business and the service and food were excellent. Plenty of variety on the menu. The atmosphere was quiet and the bar was reasonably popular that night. The Balvenie single malts were a bit pricey. Coy was our waiter and did an excellent job. Easy to find, no problem parking. An Indy institution for beef. Sides were plentiful. I'd go back.

We chose to dine at Peterson’s to celebrate my mother’s birthday, but this experience was not a notable one. Once we were seated it took TEN MINUTES to be greeted and presented with menus and the wine list. Once we were able to finally place our drink orders it took another 10 minutes - at least - to be served. I have to note, it was not at all busy. I requested a booth for our dining experience and this request was also ignored. I will say, the food quality was very good, but the service and overall experience was less than mediocre. I wanted the night to be special as we were celebrating a birthday, but I never felt like a valued patron. We will not be returning.

We enjoy Peterson's for its "not like every other steak place" menu and atmosphere. Our server was quite attentive and knowledgeable, and even though we closed down the dining room, the staff showed no impatience. Having a few healthier options in the salad and side dishes offerings would be a welcome change. Virtually all of them are heavy on cheese, nuts, butter and/or bacon.
