The atmosphere and decor are awesome. The service was phenomenal. The food was far from a hit, it was a miss. Our group of friends eat out often. This experience was our most underwhelming of 2017. Two entre selections were not available. The filet was less than stellar. The lobster and pasta dish was mushy. The dessert box reminded us of a hodgepodge convenient store snacks in a beautiful presentation. On a lighter note the tuna tartar was refreshing and delicious and the single malt scotch offerings was impressive and our server Brian was polite, courteous, engaging and informed. Overall I was not happy on value and quality.
So long to one of the best restaurants in the city. Sorry you are closing.
Great cocktails, and the food was delicious! Sad to see it go.
Very good service!
My first time there at the recommendation of my brother and his wife who had been there previously and said it was excellent. I took my wife for her birthday, so was hoping it would be good. It was actually outstanding and I recommend it for special occasions and for any time you're looking for a high-quality meal. Everything was very flavorful and well presented. I'm very sorry to hear Cerulean is closing, but they told me the location had its flaws and they never got the traffic that was promised from developers in the area. Definitely experience this place before it vanishes as it is a true gem in the city. Brett was our waiter and very attentive and ensured we had an excellent dining experience. Since it was her birthday my wife got a glass of champagne and a pastry she could share with the table. Amazing drinks from the bar, too. This is a class place that deserves to live on, so catch it before it becomes a fond memory.
So SAD Cerulean is closing. It's our favorite restaurant in Indianapolis.
We were hoping for a better experience to say our farewell to Cerulean. Alas, service was nonexistent, and he often seemed annoyed to be doing his job. We'll miss the food, for sure.
We are sorry to see them close. Never had a bad meal. Always excellent.
Friendly and attentive staff. Some of the food was very pleasing and other dishes were not that enjoyable to me.
Met up with family and friends for dinner before the big ten championship game. Looked on open table for reviews to pick a nice restaurant and we were not disapppointed. The BEST salmon I have ever eaten!! Others in my group ordered the sea bass and pasta and all were delicious. Friendly service as well! If we ever get back to Indy we will return.
Sadly, we found out that Cerulean is closing soon so we wanted to really enjoy a possible last time at this fabulous restaurant and we were not disappointed. Our server was GREAT - very knowledgeable about the menu, friendly and helpful. Our food and cocktails were, as always, amazing. We will miss this, one of my favorite restaurants anywhere.
We visited Cerulean for my friend's birthday and had such an incredible time! The food was very different but tasty and the service was impeccable. Cerulean is an EXPERIENCE - from the atmosphere to the creative cocktails and main dishes, it is something you enjoy from start to finish with pleasant surprises around every corner! Our cocktails and the wine that was ordered were gushed over. The cheese board we started with was such a delight. Every entree was out-of-the-box but delicious and filling.
If you plan on going, be sure to leave room for their amazing desserts as well!
Absolutely amazing, some of the best food in Indianapolis hands downs. Went there to celebrate engagement and they were absolutely perfect.
My wife and I had the tasting menu with wine pairings. Expensive, but the food was really outstanding. This was our first time at Cerulean. We look forward to going again and ordering from the menu.
Chef Alan never disappoints!!
Fantastic in every level and the new menu is delicious!
The staff is also wonderful and attentive.
Amazing food!!! Cerulean takes a unique combination of foods and creates masterpieces. Couldn't be more delicious!!! I will definitely be going back!
Good food with nice preparation- quality ingredients. Good service. I would recommend giving them a try.
Came here for a dinner with some colleagues while in Indy on business. I saw reviews on OpenTable and Yelp and thought it would be good experience. When we got there, I was worried it was a mediocre hotel restaurant as it was literally in our hotel. Boy was i wrong! The food was amazing and everything was delicious. Also, a couple of my colleagues are really into craft cocktails and specifically Old Fashioneds so it was a pleasant surprise to see all the twists on the Old Fashioned that they had on their menu. Don't be fooled by the size, the drinks are strong! The corn and truffle ravioli was outstanding and we all wanted more. All of the appetizers, entrees and desserts were noteworthy. The ambiance was great as well. Highly recommend.
Cerulean has quickly become the best restaurant in Indy. This place does not have a negative that I can think of. The service is great, and the food is even better.
We had a great dinner here while at a conference in Indianapolis. Food quality and taste was superb. We had a very enjoyable dinner.
