Steakhouse
A stylish departure from steakhouse tradition, The Fountain Room embraces Supper Club flair without the formality, blending fine dining with unabashed fun. Guests can indulge in timeless fare, including pickled relish trays, richly flavorful prime rib, classic side dishes, and house-made desserts, paired with strong cocktails and a well-curated wine list. The stunning space features velvet banquettes, glowing chandeliers, and a reel-to-reel machine that evokes a sense of nostalgia. Look for the historic Bottleworks hotel entrance and listen for sounds of mischief.

    We had a rough first experience in December. I wrote a review describing it on OpenTable. The owner and General Manager reached out to me. They offered an opportunity to give them another chance. We accepted and, I will say, the second chance was well worth it. The hostess was kind and welcoming. Our server, Nate, was friendly and attentive. The food was, as it was last time, delicious and desirable. I don't normally eat red meat. My husband ordered the ribs and I tasted them - it was phenomenal. We recommend the Brie Brule and Chocolate Pot De Creme as your appetizers and dessert. Thank you, Fountain Room, for showing me everyone can have an off night; one bad experience doesn't mean a restaurant (or other establishments) should be written off for good. I'm happy to dine here again and would happily recommend this restaurant to anyone in Indianapolis looking for an up-scale/casual dining experience.

    Highly recommend the Fountain Room! Delicious food, well prepared, considerate service. Dined with three friends for brunch as part of a special downtown Indy weekend. Each of us loved our food, the biscuits were light & flavorful, the coffee was great and our entrees were yummy. The setting was delightful, airy and arty and it was easy to carry on conversations.

    Dined during Devour Indy and enjoyed the Prix Fixe menu on a weeknight. Lucked into easy, close parking. Promptly seated. Water was brought and drink order was taken quickly by our server who was just right in her attention to us. Added an appetizer to our set menu which was Breule Bruschetta. Sweet and savory goodness. Needed extra crostini for the excellent melty, sauce. A house salad was crisp, fresh and tangy with the house dressing. We each had the filet which was cooked perfectly and was flavorful, tender and just the right size with some better than most garlic mashed and savory roasted carrots. Dessert was a Creme Breule Cheesecake that was creamy, rich, and decadent without being heavy. - Will definitely come back to this interesting space in one of the most trendy parts of Indy. Located right across from the Bottleworks Hotel. - Big Fan of this place.

    The only negatives i can think of were that the au jus was overly salty and the creme brulee cheesecake didnt really have a brulee top. Both were still tasty. Everything else we tried was delicious and the staff was wonderful. 10/10 would go back again.

    The service was not great. Sat at our table for 5-10 minutes before anyone came over to even give us water. Drink orders took a long time, and was hard to track down our server. 3 of us ordered steaks medium-rare and all were very rare, almost blue in the middle. Serving steaks at the price point for a nice supper club, you want the steaks to at least be cooked correctly.

    Nice restaurant. Went with friends, and we all got the prime rib, which was cooked perfectly. However, it was a bit fattier than my taste. We also got the Brie Broulee appetizer and macaroni & cheese as a side to share. The appetizer was served cold and was a little runny, although the taste was good. We could have used more of the bread that came with it as there was a good bit left after the bread was gone. Also, we were expecting it to be warm and to thicken as it cooled, but neither of those happened. The mac & cheese was very good, and our server (also named Brie) was fantastic. The noise level was higher than we expected, and it was a little hard to hear our conversation between the three of us.

    The food was excellent from start to finish, truly enjoyed every step of the meal, if I were to give one criticism the selection of cocktails needs a few more non-whisky related cocktails. That being said the cocktails were great just need a few more would be give variety. Kierra the server was awesome, attentive but not pushy helpful but not hovering. Perfect service. As a hotelier I love well executed service and we had 3 spread out managerial table touches, everyone cleared, filled water and ran drinks. Thanks for a great meal!!!

    The ambience was nice. However, for the price of the food it did not equal up in taste. The steak was tough and didn't have any flavor. The Mac and cheese didn't have flavor either. We never got any refills of our drinks. I actually had to ask for salt for my food too. For the price I would much rather go to Harry and Izzys.

    It was our first time at The Fountain Room. Very beautiful place, we enjoyed it very much overall. If I had to offer any points on constructive criticism it would be that our waiter, at the end of our meal, simply placed the bill on our table without even asking if we wanted desert. We might have actually ordered something if given the chance. Not a huge deal, but it would have been nice to have been offered the desert menu.

    Our server was super sweet. The drinks were good. A downside was our ribeyes were charred and salty. My husband ordered his medium rare (knowing most people will overcook it) and it did come medium. The steak was juicy and flavorful but again you had to get past the hard char on the edges. The mashed potatoes and Mac and cheese were yummy as well.

    This was our first time to visit this place and it will not be our last. We started out at the bar as we arrived a little early. They have some nice cocktails to choose from, and a really nice bourbon selection, including some allocated stuff. We moved to our table right on time. Our server, Landon, made some great suggestions. The Brie appetizer is fantastic. Steak was cooked to perfection. We added the horseradish crust. Sides, we had the brussels sprouts and the corn pudding. Both were really good. The corn pudding does have a little kick to it, which Landon mentioned as we ordered it. It was GREAT...I like a little heat. Check this place out, you will not be dissapponted.
