Food was amazing, and reasonably priced! Two people can eat 3 courses and drinks for around $50-60

I made Valentine’s-weekend reservations for my fiancé and I, which was good because the couple who walked in before us were told it was a two hour wait. We were sat immediately. The server was quite knowledgeable of the menu and answered all of our questions. Top shelf margaritas: fantastic and strong. Pork belly tacos: delicious. Overall great experience.

Amazing food as always. You can’t go wrong with anything on the menu, but the skirt steak and chorizo empanadas are a must. Only downside was having an early reservation (5:15) and being sat in an empty dining room within 2-3 feet of the other 2 couples with the same reservation times. I absolutely understand if the restaurant is full, but spread us out a bit when it’s early.

I like this place, but maybe was not the best choice for Valentine's day! The food quality was lower than always and I expected something special for valentine, like a live music, special menu, or decoration! I still recommend this place, but I suggest staff to consider what I mentioned. :)

My hubby and I go out for a nice dinner for Valentines Day. He had not been to Livery so I thought it would be a good choice. I love the ambiance, the mix of old and new modern decor. The service was wonderful. The food and cocktails as always were delicious. The food prices are not bad either which makes Livery a good choice for a date night or just when you want a delicious flavorful meal.

We love this place. Took a friend who was in form out of town and she said the food was wonderful. Our server, Maddy was great and took care of us, anticipated our needs and was always there when we needed something. The food is great and the variety is fun to share around the table. Highly recommend.

Livery was good but could have been better! We loved the atmosphere and the drinks. I was disappointed that they had ran out of scallops after our server recommended that dish. I would have expected for the price to be decreased or extra shrimp in place of the scallops but neither accommodation was made.

Jena was a fantastic server—we always enjoy her along with Cat, the GM and somali! This place is never a disappointment but sitting in the indoor enclosed space by the bar (forget what they call it) noise leve is unbearable. My husband and I had not seen each other due to a trip apart and literally had to quit talking because we had to “yell” at each other and still could not hear. It is not pleasant. If I recall, the bar area is much better acoustic wise for visiting. This is a typical problem among new restaurants and not sure what they can do about it, but sometimes we just want to have a conversation with some music in the background.

Everything for this place deserves 5 stars, except that there were lines for the bathroom. It was a busy Saturday night but still, the wait for a single toilet bathroom can be uncomfortable (found a unisex bathroom by the upstairs bar later). Polenta app was amazing and skirt steak was even better. One of my friends had the lamb tamale on the Devour menu - it should be on the full menu. And the service was excellent.

Well, the kitchen creations were most interesting and tasty! Unique approach to just about all items ordered from "devour downtown" options. Only the olives in my martini were a disappointment. . .
Our waiter was friendly and helpful and appropriately attentive, and even shared a name with our son, Evan. We plan to return to work on tasting the appetizers, trying some creative cocktails, etc.

Livery is an exceptionally well-decorated space. We were seated upstairs, which brings me to my only complaint - there really isn't any cozy seating for two people. There are two very long tables and two U-shaped booths. We were seated in a U-shaped booth, which we found somewhat awkward for two people. The result is I sat at a 45 degrees angle to my seat so that I could face my date without us being awkwardly too far apart sitting at opposite ends of the booth.

Everything else is positive, including the outdoor space I am looking forward to trying out when weather permits.

The food and beverage options of their regular menu were quite adequate without overwhelming with too many choices. We ordered from the DEVOUR Indy menu and every single thing we ordered was well-prepared, well-presented, and delicious. I will note that the chocolate flan, while delicious, has the consistency of mousse rather than being custard-like. Looking forward to trying the remaining menu items.

I had the Livery Margarita, which I probably would not order again, and a Boulevardier, which I would. There is a Carriage House Margarita which apparently has higher quality ingredients that I would try next time. The beer list had many more interesting options for my taste than the wine list, but frankly that is just fine given the style of cuisine.

My wife & I dined on a Devour DT Monday night, still kinda busy but immediate seating. We sat in a booth on the bar side w good view of sports tv's. Really enjoyed the imaginative menu & food was quite good. Enjoyed a pineapple cider. Service a little strange but not off-putting (inexperience I think).

I will say, because as the old saying goes, " you get what you pay for".......much to my surprise....this is not the case for The Livery! I am basing this statement on the prices when I saw them online.
I made a snap judgment which I was pleasantly corrected.
It was my first time....when I went in the ambiance was great the clientele was having a great time and the hostess was very welcoming.
I ordered a red wine and the waitress was very knowledgeable.
Then came dinner, I was very pleased it was prompt, cooked to perfection and delicious!
Going back, I based my judgment on price. Shame on me......the menu prices are extremely reasonable so I assumed dinner would be sub par. Dinner was GREAT!
I strongly recommend The Livery for everyone!

We have been to Livery several times since moving to Indianapolis. It is definitely one of our favorite spots. The food is always excellent and the house margarita is a favorite. In the summer, the rooftop is a very fun spot to have drinks and dinner.
