Club atmosphere/noise level should not imply requirement to shout order at the wait staff at 7pm... food is not so good that I’d put up with it again.

This was my second time here and probably my last. Our waiter was the best part. Two of four courses were burned which is unacceptable. Easy fix but apparently too much effort.
Also table tents telling people how to behave and how long their reservation last I find offensive. Speaking over that music is nearly impossible. I did enjoy the atmosphere and our server Damien saved this experience

We were first in with a 5:30 reservation. The music was so loud we were shouting back and forth with the host.....
We thought about going somewhere else but wanted to try the burger. So we stayed. My wife used her cell phone flashlight to read the menu...
The cocktails were very well made, nice presentation. I would never order the brussell sprout course again... 10-12 individual leaves.. with some small dollop of filling... just not a good presentation and quantity/volume was grossly inadequate.
We came for the burgers and they were awesome! But I would not comeback just for those. I understand the effort to create an edgy vibe... but it was just annoying.

Finally made it to Bar One Fourteen and I can't believe it took so long! Really cool ambiance. Cocktails were outstanding and I'll dream of the Fancy AF Burger until I return.

My wife and I celebrated our Anniversary at Bar One Fourteen and we were both disappointed. We made reservations online which requires credit card information incase you don't show up. When we arrived, we were told they had a private event and we would only have an hour time slot. I feel like if we are being held accountable for showing to our reserved time slot, the restuarant should also. Food was good but definitely not worth the price ($100 for 2 burgers, 2 drinks and 1 side of potatoes). Service was good the first 30 minutes but then the waiter disappeared the last 45 minutes. Didn't have time to have dessert or have another drink since our waiter vanished. We had high hopes for this place but I definitely won't be returning.

Dined here once before solo, and food, drinks, and service were good. This time the food was bland, drinks were decent, but the service was terrible. Our server completely forgot to put in our dinner order. When we asked and he realized, he ran off without confirming what we wanted. By this time, they were out of 2/3 entrees. We settled for appetizers, which were bland. When we were ready to go the manager said she would bring the bill, and then disappeared for 15+ minutes. We left money on the table and walked out.

I wish they would have not continued to play the same album over and over. I would have been easier to change it up a little.

The quality has taken a sudden drop. The menu makes some bold offerings, but it's small enough that there's a fair chance nothing on there will sound appealing to you if you're planning on dinner there. The cocktails and wine/beer list are still on point, so it's a killer early evening spot (but who makes reservations for those kinds of things?)

IMPORTANT NOTE: The Fancy AF burger is still on the menu, but they've changed the cheese and now goat cheese is the only option. Unfortunate AF.

Thanks for your feedback. We strive to offer an edited menu that will appeal to any and all. IMPORTANT NOTE: we have not changed the cheese on the Fancy AF Burger or the Fancy AF Burger with Truffles. It has always been Malvarosa - a Spanish Sheep's Milk cheese.

This place was very overrated in my opinion. Was expecting it to be delicious based on all the hype. We ordered 3 dishes - the soft scrambed egg with caviar, the potato pave, and the fancy AF burger. All three only tasted like salt and butter. Couldn't taste anything else. Also, I appreciated the music but it was so loud I couldn't even hear the waiter...and I'm 27 so my hearing is still pretty top notch. Was disappointed to say the least.

This is a really great foodie special occasion dining experience. I recently took a friend here for her birthday and she loved it. People should be forewarned that it is a state-of-the-art listening room and they play vinyl so it is kind of loud. And dark. But the service and the food are exceptional and you go in knowing about the atmosphere. It's great for two people it's really harder for larger groups to converse so I don't recommend that. I will be back again and again but only as part of a pair.

My wife and I reserved a table for two to celebrate our 8th wedding anniversary and perhaps had one of the best date nights in our 12+ years together. The setting was intimate and dark, gritty vinyl beats from The Fugees filled the listening room, which made the mood vibrant and energized. With glasses of champagne flowing and perfectly suggested small plates coming in rotation, the only thing we were left wanting was for more time within the walls of Bar One Fourteen - which we fulfilled by savoring a last round of delightful desserts. 5 stars, easily. Surprise your spouse or significant other with this spot - you won't regret it. #lovewhoyoulove

Daimien was one of the best bartenders we've ever experienced! He was very knowledgable! He made cocktails that I typically don't order, but ended up loving! 10/10, I've been recommending this place to everyone.

Great overall experience! This is one of those places where you’re not only paying for a well planned and perfectly executed menu but also an ambience that is unique compared to any other eatery in Indy. The food was outstanding. We both had the Fancy AF burger with truffles which was worth the price. We will definitely be coming again and recommending Bar One Fourteen to our friends.

I would definitely recommend Bar One Fourteen to certain friends, but not to everyone. Its fabulous cocktails and food are worth making a reservation. The ambiance - very small, cozy, dark, with moderately loud (and very cool) music - makes for a unique experience. We very much enjoyed our date night there!

Food was good, atmosphere was unique. We had a 6:30 reservation and arrived at 6:29- ordered a cocktail and bottle of wine and about 75% of the food menu. Unfortunately when we ordered an after dinner cocktail at 8:00 we were told there was another reservation and we would need to leave the restaurant for their sister Napolese. What?! An end time for a reservation in a place that bills itself as a “listening room”? I can’t recommend this experience.

I have not had a bad experience or meal at Bar114. The menu may be small but is focused on creativity with an emphasis on flavor. The ambience is wonderful for a date night and listening to vinyl makes the evening complete. This is one of our go-to’s in Indy - you should make it yours.

Third visit punctuated by unexpected disappointment. Poorly managed reservation system with a subsequent one hour plus wait. For a policy of charging guests $50/pp for being late or no showing on a reservation there was no attempt to rectify making guests wait over an hour in the closed portion of their neighboring Napolese. Often a fantastic small bite menu with never miss cocktails the music was too loud to converse and the dim lighting has been replaced removing any unique quality to the setting. An unfortunate and unanticipated miss for the Patachou brand in all regards, but most notably service and ambience.

I love this place so much that I really don't want to share it with anyone. I have, and they went a couple days later and stated that it was "Perfect." The atmosphere, the service and the food were amazing. Very grateful!
