The food was excellent! Service was a little slow and I think they charged me more for an item than the menu claimed was a different price. I asked about it and they fixed it. We were also warned about a trap music party before we went. The music did not interrupt our dinner. I don't think the trap music is a regular thing. I did like the free cocktail tasting and the friendly service. Would recommend! Would go back again!

Loud bar atmosphere with overpriced food. Presented with two waiters at table. Felt good at the beginning. Then they disappeared for a while. Someone else brought the bread. Very long wait for our entrees. Fourth waiter brought our filet mignon orders. (Meh). After we tasted them realized they got the orders mixed up and served the wrong people at the table. Dont care so much at a Five Guys but expected better here.

Noise level was a little high with the high ceilings, and wait staff misunderstood a steak doneness order as a result. Seafood was not as good as the beef. The braised beef eggroll was amazing!!! Service was outstanding. Drinks and wine service was great. Overall, we really enjoyed our experience and would definitely come back as well as recommend the restaurant.

Great place, great food! Service was excellent and portions were perfect. A bit over priced in my opinion but probably on par with the going downtown rates.

We had a really great birthday dinner for my husband. The staff was very nice and the food was delicious. A steakhouse with a farm to table flair is just our style. And the skillet cookie dessert was amazing.

Mother’s Day was great. The food was excellent. My only complaint is that it seemed a bit expensive for such limited options. An omelette bar or mimosa bar would have been nice and more reflective of that price point

The wait staff was a blast. Very enjoyable. Engaged. Laughed with us and very attentive. The food was prepared great! One of my guests said the steak he ate is in his top two. The only downside was private party "bouncer" in the suit near the downstairs bathroom. A bit over the top. He needed to chill.

CharBlue has become my favorite downtown Indy restaurant. They create the feeling that every table is occupied by their most special customers. The food is wonderfully tasty and satisfying. The service is so very attentive, the ambiance is relaxing, and customer preferences are given detailed attention.

There was a fairly large piece of dirt or something in water glass & we received a slight attitude from wait staff when it was pointed out (Admittedly w/ a tad bid of attitude from my spouse so it could have started off better).
The food was excellent except the Wagyu steak was somewhat burnt on outer part - or that might be how CharBlue chef staff prefers to "char" the steak ? - It just was not to my liking.
All in all it was a good but not great dining experience - most notably due to the perceived arrogance of the 2 waiters and the delays in service after the initial interaction.
The hostess was polite, friendly and filled in for waiters when water glasses needed refills, a napkin hit the floor & she replaced w/o being asked, etc.

This was our third annual visit, and we were as impressed this time as we were the first time. The service and food were great. Tex, our waiter, met all of our needs, and as always, all of the staff work together to make it an excellent dining experience. We will definitely be back next year when we are back in town for FDIC.

A nice place. Unfortunately, the fish dish was not prepared properly and by the time the dish was recooked everybody else at the table had finished their main dishes. Steaks were great. Apps were nice. Not having all the family eat at the same time was a disappointment. That being said, I will likely return.

Great staff, great food, service was excellent.
The noise level was surprising as we could hardly hear each other until the room started clearing out.
Acoustic panels would do the trick.

CharBlue is now our favorite downtown Indy restaurant. Classic appetizers and entrees are deliciously updated in form and flavor. Also, classic cocktails are cleverly subtly tweaked. Loved their French Dip Egg Roll, Filet Beef Bourguignon, and The Char-latan. Desserts are divine. Excellent Scotch is available. Service from every employee is cheerfully attentive. Noise level is a good balance of metro with cozy.

We had an amazing experience for our first visit to CharBlue! Our Dreamteam sergers, Mo and Eric were fantastic paying attention to every detail. Our lobster and ribeye were prepared to perfection as was the appetizer. Manager Starling also made us feel welcome and checked on us as well.
We certainly recommend this experience to any couple wanting an excellent meal with warm ambiance!
