Unfortunately we tried to book this restaurant for lunch on Saturday of the big ten championship which was a very crowded weekend. Reviews looked good so we booked and got confirmation for lunch. When we showed up the restaurant was closed. Very disappointing. We then had to find another restaurant where we then had to wait another hour for a table. They really need to update their hours and this result will make me not go there again

It would be great for lunch if it wouldn't take 30mins for the bill. There wasn't any reason for the bill to take an additional 30 minutes.

The staff was great. The atmosphere was fine but the food wasn't much better than the continental breakfast at some hotels so $16 per plate was a bit much

It took over ten minutes for anyone to come to our table and service was spotty and slow after that. The food was closer to a hotel free hot breakfast than what I would expect from a $17 buffet. Generally we were disappointed.

The Pasta Bar which used to be absolutely wonderful Chef Bryan's tutelage is now mediocre at best. The price has also increased dramatically. I will not be back as there are too many other options especially at that price point.

FYI, the menu on Open Table still shows a price of $12 for the Pasta Bar when, in fact, it is now $17.50.

The atmosphere, food, and staff were exceptional. My wife and I were dining here while vacationing based on a recommendation of a friend and we we're thrilled. Highly recommended!!!

We had a great breakfast here, but then lunch was a major disappointment. Service was terrible and even though there were only a few other diners in the restaurant, we were made to feel that we were an imposition on the waitstaff. Our order was incorrect and we never received some items ordered.

Fantastic! What a gem! Great food, great service, not too overpriced and an employee discount for those who work for the State of Indiana. The salad/soup/pasta/dessert bar is excellent!

We ordered a smoothie that came out warm, not cold as a smoothie should be. The staff replaced it but the taste was subpar still.

The chicken sausage was cold and dried out. The chive garnish was excessive on the eggs and potatoes we ordered. The potatoes were greasy and did not seem cooked to order. It gave the impression that the food came from the buffet line.

Overall, is way overpriced for the quality of food and overpriced for brunch in general. Beware with what you get in a hotel restaurant.

After tip, for two people, it came out to a $54 breakfast for an egg sandwich and eggs, potatoes and sausage with an OJ and smoothie.

Terrible. Nothing but a low rate hotel breakfast restaurant trying to be a wannabe Cafe Patachou. Terrible service. Mediocre food. Over priced. Will not be going back.

The selection of foods for Sunday brunch was marginal. Cappuccinos came from Starbucks across the way.
Jelly at the table were half full.....so who knows what was going on in there.

Nice lunch buffet. One of the better downtown lunch buffets, just wish it were a tad cheaper. I would eat there again.

We ate here for lunch in hopes that it would be a good dining experience. The menu looked good and it appeared to have a good atmosphere. Upon arrival, we waited 10 minutes before a server or staff member even acknowledged us. We were then served by a less than friendly waiter.

I normally don't mind stodgy places, but even the stodgiest of restaurants in Indianapolis have better wait staff and far more attention placed on the customer.

Although the meal was okay, the change is chef is noticeable. It used to be fun going through the pasta bar line, but now it's just ordinary. And the end product was not as satisfying as with the old chef. And I must say, the olive oil left on the plate was not enticing at all.
