Really enjoyed the oysters! But wouldn’t recommend the lobster risotto :( Will definitely go back and explore other options on the menu.
Risotto was not enjoyable. Sticky and crispy. Oysters and the lobster Mac were very good
Our waiter was amazing! Very attentive and helpful.
The food was amazing! The service and ambiance was great. Totally nice, relaxing, upscale, friendly service, and fantastic food. We will definitely make this a favorite restaurant for special occasions. Or just a nice date night.
The food quality was terrible, but the price was high. The pictures on the website were not representative of The Who restaurant. Online it seemed that this restaurant would be a moderate to high end restaurant; however, the food quality and ambiance of the restaurant did not justify the price. To that end, the waitress was very kind, helpful, and informative. It seemed as though she had worked at higher end establishments and tried to direct us as such. With dessert, my wife ordered hot tea, for which the waitress provided but apologized for the cup and lack of tea pot for additional hot water. I definitely feel for this waitress, as it would seem this misrepresentation has happened before. I definitely do not want individuals not to have the opportunity to earn money, but definitely do not recommend this restaurant and would suggest the numerous other establishments that stand up to the quality, service, and atmosphere for the money through out the city.
Great atmosphere and fantastic service. Our server was very attentive and wonderful.
Higher price point than some others, but food and drinks were superb. Great menu. Add parking to your budget as parking garage near by was expensive and only close parking option.
We arrived early for our reservation and was seated immediately. We expected to wait for service and food delivery; however, was pleasantly surprised at the speed and attentive staff to our needs and food delivery. We ordered the wood fired oysters and they were delicious. Everything after the appetizer was disappointing. The clam chowder was not edible, the scallops with risotto was far from acceptable. The scallops were over cooked and the risotto was like paste. When the manager asked about our meal we were honest about the above and the response was yes they should take risotto off the menu. He said they would reduce the cost which is not what we asked for but appreciated. When we received the bill which was $145.00+ which included a bottle of wine we received a discount of $9.31 which is not even the cost of the clam chowder.
This dinner was a celebration of our wedding anniversary and so disappointing. The staff was friendly and accommodating but the food is far from appealing especially considering the cost.
My wife and I both had the lobster risotto. It was well cooked, though my wife’s entree was delivered about 10 minutes after mine - a minor service faux pas that isn’t the end of the world.
I enjoyed my dish, but my wife felt that it lacked some seasoning. The clam chowder was a bit less creamy than I’m used to, but it was still quite tasty. We’ll be back, but will likely explore other items on the menu.
Lobster in my risotto was chewy and gross. My wife’s food was fine and service was also good.
Great place for a date. The wait for food wasn’t long at all.
Pretty disappointed...service was great but food was subpar.
Pier 48 was wonderful. Our server was so much fun and we had great conversations with her. Hopefully management will let her know too. The menu is awesome.
Food was good but mediocre service and very poor atmosphere at this price range
Started with oystets and the crab benigets, they were all fantastic! I could have made them my entire meal. Had the risotto and it was a little bland, my friend got a hot lobster roll and said it was very good. Great ambiance, good drinks and fantastic service!
I purchased tickets from be our guest from fox 59. They stated that you could receive 50 dollas vouchers for half price and I purchased two vouchers. They vouchers where misleading because I was under the impression that you could order up to 50 dollars worth of food by purchasing the vouchers for 25 dollars. The promotion is misleading and while I would definately recommend this restaurant I will never purchase any vouchers from be our guest from fox 59 in the future.
Late anniversary dinner
The service was great! We were seated in a strange interior room, the outdoor patio wasn’t open but would have been the only draw. We only had oysters & cocktails and they were ok. Full of brine which seemed artificial and strange. Way over priced given we could get more and much better quality from the capital grill down the street...without the strange seating room. Might visit again for the patio but not at the top of my list.
At least we have something to laugh about
We went out to Pier 48 to celebrate a birthday with some friends. It was a great experience, not too busy though it seemed they were a bit understaffed. However, the waiters were friendly and the food was incredible.
The service was awesome!!!
Delicious food with wonderful service! Highly reccomend!
Get there before 6 for $1 oysters. Had a good selection of IPA's
Enjoyed the experience. Chargrilled oysters were fantastic! Will definitely go back.
Just average. Slow service
Pier48 is by far the best place in Indianapolis for seafood. This is a must stop if you are in town for any reason. Oyster, Crab Beignets, Lobster Roll, and Fish and Chips are cant miss items! Absolutely Love this place and will be back time and time again!
Everything was amazing!!!! Very reasonably priced. Service was excellent!!
Great experience as always! Food was delicious.
The presentation of the food looked good. However, the taste and quality didn’t match the price point. Also, the food came out warm as if it sat in the window awhile.
Would like a better selection of appetizers and sandwiches
We visited ahead of the Loyola Oregon state game and restaurant did a nice job of hosting our fans. We ordered a lot of seafood and was excellent.
Date night great food
Big weekend in Indy. But I was disappointed that we couldn't even get a cocktail at the bar. We were told to go out to the tent where they only served Coors Light and Seltzer. Food was good ,server was nice
Ordered two great appetizers: Lobster Nachos and Boom Boom Shrimp - very good!
Service was a bit slow, but it was really busy, so understandable. Food was great. Server wasn't particularly engaging.
Had the special, surf and turf grilled cheese, very good!
We came during March madness and had no idea it was going on. We had a reservation and it took about 15 min to get us a table and they sat us in the bar. Then it was over 30 min before a server even came to the table. The food was okay, steak was super dry and my garlic bread was over cooked. The food wasn’t flavored well. We saw a server once even after getting our food. Had to ask someone different entirely to get a check.. it was a horrible date experience with the loud bar crowd cussing and being crazy. And our table was directly next to it. Will probably never return.
This was our first visit to Pier 48 and they got everything right. Food, service and atmosphere were all excellent and provided at a fair price. We had shrimp cocktail, egg roll bowl, clam chowder, oysters and twin lobster tails served with glazed carrots and risotto. Each dish was perfectly prepared and delicious. Our server, Shelby, was particularly efficient and delightful. We highly recommend this restaurant. It will be one of your favorites...enjoy!
The hostess was super sweet. The server was great! The food was delicious! Experience is one everyone should have, and food is well priced for the quality making it the best value in Indy!!!
Solid food. Thought the service could have been a little more organized and more professional.
I paid $20 for a 9oz glass of wine. I could've went to Trader Joe's and bought 7 BOTTLES for that price, so I won't buy any more wine from there, but the service and the burrito bowl(no meat or dairy)was great!
