Steak was not good. Inside was medium as ordered but out side was dry and overdone, hard to cut

Devour Indy is so great and I participate regularly and expect somewhat smaller potions, that’s okay, but my serving of mussels was very small and at least 3 -4 of the 10 shells I got were empty. Kind of a bummer. What I did get was great

Always great food and service. It was raining pretty heavily which made it difficult to stay dry on their outdoor patio, but still enjoyed the experience.

We had hoped to spend a pleasant evening dining outside when we arrived for appointed time, the outside was empty but were ushered inside because they said all the tables were booked. I guess I misunderstood when I booked it, said not guaranteed. Should have read not at all. I had the goat cheese tart, it was great, mussels were okay, not very flavorful, hard to open a few. Had the special desert, very good!

Our waitress was exceptional. We sat outside and found it quiet and uncrowded. We started with the gruyere gougeres, and was perfect. The champagne cocktails were delicious and a rare opportunity. We had driven to Indianapolis to see the Lume exhibit and made a reservation for an early dinner afterwards at Petite Chou. It was a great way to celebrate our 33rd anniversary.

Felt rushed from the beginning. We had just sat down and before we ordered drinks the waitress asked what we wanted for our main entrees not even asking about drinks or starters. The entire time she was trying to rush us through. I had gotten the duck and it was very dry. The best part of the meal was mashed potatoes. Also this restaurant canceled a reservation on me last November on my anniversary and we didn’t know until we showed up. They said the restaurant was closed but they were serving people on the porch. At this point that screwed us because all the other restaurants were full at 5 pm on a Saturday which is why we had a reservation in the first place. Which brings me to if they can cancel at the last second I don’t agree that if you have to cancel your reservation at the last second you get charged 25$ per person. That policy is very hypocritical. The food was average there’s better restaurants in the area with better service.

My only critique is that I wish they had had more French food on the menu and French beer. They gave outstanding service and were extremely welcoming.
