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.

Great meal! We shared our entire meal. Perfectly cooked filet mignon. Delicious wedge salad and creamed corn accompaniment. Everything was superb. Friendly warm atmosphere. Relaxing. We had several glasses of zinfandel that were excellent. Peterson's is one of our favorites.

Told waitstaff that we were not in a hurry, that we wanted a nice unhurried meals but within SECONDS after we ordered, our salad was served and before we finished it, our entrée was on the table! Not my idea of a unhurried meal...i could have gone to a fast food restaurant. Very disappointed with the whole experience...would not recommend this place...the food was adequate...it was our first time in this area and was very disappointed!

No mention was made of our anniversary ( stated when we walked in the door & a previous call). The female waitress never told us her name & started to fill water glasses without asking if we wanted bottled water(we did!). She did not check back but mgr did. She did say good night when she brought the bill. It was not a memorable anniversary dinner. Next year back to Ocean Prime!

We had dinner at Peterson's on Saturday, 2/17/18, and honestly, I don't understand how they stay in business. The food was good, about on par with any number of other steakhouses (Outback, etc.) that are MUCH lower price. For the higher price, I expected exceptional service and atmosphere. The atmosphere was so-so, a little loud for a nice dinner, and the table we were seated at was fairly close to a booth with not much room between. However, the service was not good at all. When our appetizer was brought out, we were told someone would be out with bread shortly....it never came. After our food was brought to the table, no one EVER came back to see if we needed anything. We had to catch a server going by to get extra butter/sour cream and ask for an iced tea refill (which I never received). Another customer had to get up to go ask for his check, and yet another was getting up just as we left to get a server's attention to ask if some plates could be cleared off their table.

After asking for our check and informing them that we never did get a tea refill, our waitress offered to take both our ice teas off the bill (and did)....and the bill dropped from around $162 to around $157. The ironic thing is that it really didn't matter....we had been given $200 in Peterson's gift certificates....and knowing that we wouldn't be coming back so a few TEMP_OC_CONTENT_HERE#039;s left on the gift card were worthless to us, we just gave her all the certificates and told her no change necessary.

Funny thing is, she probably thought she was getting a big tip for doing a great job, when really it was the opposite.

Very disappointing experience. First time in 20 years. Restaurants have ups and downs daily. This was a definitely down day.
Service was subpar, especially for a $170 meal for two.
Waitress had too many tables to service the main reason. She wasn’t able to be attentive to all she was assigned. She was proficient, but didn’t interact much at all.
Ambience was zero in the restaurant as a whole. Lifeless, dead.
We were excited to go, but left deflated.
The food, itself, was excellent, the experience left a bad taste in our mouths.

Hostesses and servers were great. Steaks we overcooked and tough. I ordered my steak rare and it came out medium. The server was hoping my plate with a towel because it was too hot to touch. Lobster mac and cheese had some pieces of shell in it. Mashed potatoes we not whipped fully. Drinks were bad. My old fashioned was fizzy.

Overall it was a great experience for a restaurant I normally wouldn't dine at on a regular basis. I received a gift card and this was my first time dining at Petersons. If I had any complaints they would be that we were seated close to the front door and every time a new guest would arrive, we were met with a draft of cold air. I also felt rushed by our server who returned to our table several times while we were viewing the cocktail/wine/dinner menu. I told the server that this was our first time dining at Petersons and I had hoped that would be enough of a clue that we might need some extra time to view the large menus. In no way is this a knock on our server, because I understand she had other tables to attend to and she was just giving us the best service she could. Our food arrived in a timely manner and was prepared to perfection. I would defiantly dine at Peterson's again, however I will request a table further away from the front door.
