A fantastic place to enjoy fine dining before a Pacer Game. The entire staff and service makes it a point of timing to get everyone to the game on time. The beauty is it does not feel like it is rushed at all. The food is properly prepared and delicious as usual. The service is attentive without being intrusive. Will continue to be a go to place to bring clients and/or friends.

Mediocre service. Steak was charred and not that great especially for the price. It seems like the service and food has gone downhill the last couple of months.

After first bottle of wine waiter asked if we wanted a second bottle. We said no that water was fine. He lost interest in our table and never saw him again. Had to request our bill twice. Food was average compared to other Indy steakhouses.

a little disappointed with the menu and the food. I ordered the sea bass which was excellent however the spinach was very hard. My date ordered the scallops and whatever orange stuff was on top tasted bitter. There was also no grilled shrimp and your chicken could not be grilled. Simply not enough options.

The food was delicious. I had ordered a steak and it came out not to my liking. I let them know and they cooked it some more. After eating half I found most of the remaining steak was fat. I again informed them and they asked if I would like a different steak. I said yes and they cooked me a new one. The new steak was amazing. They adjusted the bill and only charged me what I ate of the first steak.
Would definitely recommend. This was for valentines day at 10pm and they didn't even try to push us out the door.

My wife and I dined on Valentine's Day 2020. Upon entering Prime 47, we were greeted kindly by a handful of hostesses. We were about 15 minutes early for our reservation, so we grabbed 2 of the few open seats at the bar for a cocktail before dinner. One of the hostesses came over to us at our reservation time and took us upstairs to our table once we were finished at the bar. The atmosphere throughout was fantastic. Our table was upstairs off to the left side. We had plenty of room between tables, and the chairs were quite comfortable and plush pleather. We were greeted quickly by the waiter's assistant who filled our glasses with water. Our waiter Keith (I believe) greeted us shortly after and provided a history of the building (historic Indiana Gas Co). Keith was very pleasant. Everything throughout dinner service was great. Never a less than 1/2 full water glass, and Keith made sure we didn't need another cocktail. Both of Keith's assistants were great all through dinner.

Food was 3/5 stars. We ordered a house salad (me) and caprese salad (wife) for starters. Both were fine. I opted for the KC Strip steak as my entree. My steak was nothing really special unfortunately. When compared to St. Elmo's, Ruth Chris or other steakhouses in Indy and abroad, I hoped for more when it came to my steak. Especially as it was said to be dry-aged and quite a bit more expensive than the NY strip. The additional flavor from dry aging just wasn't there. My wife ordered the twin lobster tails. Those were just fine. We shared the truffle mashed potatoes. At the end of the meal, we were offered two freshly dipped chocolate strawberries, which was a nice add. Nothing fancy, but the small things count sometimes!

Note - be ready to possibly wait on valet if you parked with them after dinner service. We waited about 20 minutes on our car to be fetched (along with many other parties waiting on valet). Downtown Indy was busy that night. Opt for self park nearby!

We usually are here with a group or at least another couple and most of the time it is with our immediate family. I have lost track of how many times we have been here over the years but we have never had a bad experience. If fact, it is probably our favorite place to eat out of anywhere we have been in Indiana or even out of state. The steaks are absolutely amazing, to the point that this is the only place where my wife will even order a steak. The service is always on point and what I mean is they are friendly, helpful and they talk when we ask a question or when it is quiet but when we are talking they don't interrupt.

Mine and my husbands steaks were mixed up. I had ordered mine with enhancements and he didn’t so I pushed my toppings to the side and we switched steaks (mine medium rare and his medium). I ordered my enhancement Oscar and it didn’t come out with the hollandaise sauce on top. It was Valentine’s Day and we were having a good time so I didn’t want to complain. The food was still really good, our seating was perfect, I loved getting a rose when we checked in, and loved the live piano player.

We order the world tour at $96 per person. We like Med Rare steaks. They came out med Rare but all three steaks where ice cold. When I said something they took back and cooked it up and brought ack my same steaks. They still where cold like I just pulled out of the fridge cold. They offered to cook them up again it that would have over cooked them even more. Never once did they offer to replace or comp the steaks. My wife and I have made it a point to trace to Steakhouses at least once a month. This was by far the most disappointing and upsetting. I understand things happen but the way it was handled is what counts and that was poor. For that I will not be returning to Prime 47

The gentleman serving us water service was awesome. He always gave us a great conversation once he came to the table and greeted us with a smile. Our server on the other, felt like he did not want to be at work. Very short, once he explained the menu and was not overly excited in what he was serving. Therefore, which made us as customers questioned if we had selected the right restaurant. Which was sad because it was Valentines Day Evening and our first experience at Prime 47
