The Loft at Traders Point Ratings and Reviews
Food was quite good. I was not a fan of the sausage but that could just be because it is different than what I am used to. My only complaint was the table. We were right next to the beautiful tree but I was bumped into about 20 times by guests walking down the aisle. My only option was to move over so the tree branches were on my shoulder. :)
It took a long time for the waitress to take our drink orders. She apologized for the long wait. We actually ordered our meals when she finally took the drink orders. Then we had to wait too long for our food. The atmosphere is great, but the meals are pricey.
Sunday brunch. Menu limited. Suspect due to Holiday activities onsite. It was much louder than normal in the dining area. The restaurant seating is very busy. Our table was "in the line of fire" and very busy... not quaint and romantic... in my opinion - the Loft has the best food in Indy - but they also have the worst chairs of any restaurant.
Horrible experience. We were seated in the dark porch and servers forgot we were even there- when I went to the front to ask they sent a server who didn’t even apologize for being late. The menu specials were not told to us (we found out later when she was telling the table next to us), our appetizers (cheese board) came after 30-40 minutes, again after inquiring how long it would be... food was mediocre (medium-well steak was brought out charred). Manager put desserts on the house but this was poor poor service and we felt like we needed an apology for all the mistakes that continued to happen through the night- including no refills for our waters, etc. Moreover, we had made a note that this was for a birthday- and nothing special was done whatsoever. Not returning for any special occasions- made a terrible night for us!
The food was really good, ice cream and cheese were amazing. I split a main dish with a friend, and the restaurant charged us $5 more to do so, I'd never heard of that before but our server did tell us that before we did it. The place was very rustic. It felt like we were eating in a barn loft with candles set up in the rafters and all around us on the beams. Our table was wobbly, and the wicker chairs were incredibly uncomfortable, they are formed and curved so strangely it hits your legs and butt in the wrong areas. By the time the check arrived I was standing up and leaning against a railing. The service was high pressure. Our server was pushing a very expensive red wine and the acorn squash soup so hard they brought us the acorn squash soup even after we picked another soup. BTW, the squash soup was good, we tasted it, but it wasn't want we wanted and they did fix it for us. Our server was also confused about the dishes making it very difficult to decide what to eat. He kept telling us that the soup we were ordering was vegetarian and when they brought it out it has big chunks of pork in it. That was fine for me but I feel sorry for vegetarians if this guy is there server. Again, I want to emphasis that the food was really good and they did fix any problems we complained about quickly and professionally and I will go back...and bring a pillow to sit on!
My wife and I will definitely be back to The Loft. The food and service was fantastic and we highly recommend saving room for The Dairy Bar after your brunch. The biscuits and gravy were great, as was the pork loin benedict. The atmosphere was very inviting and the Christmas decorations were tasteful and beautiful (and not overdone). The cheese board satisfies a few different palates, but most were definitely on the more pungent side (we did not complain). We can't wait to go back to try more items on their menu - so good!
The Loft has always been one of our favorite restaurants, however, our dinner Saturday night was such a disappointment, it may not be any more. Our server was thoughtful and charming, but two of our three entrees had issues. My daughter ordered the $40 ribeye entree and asked for it to be cooked medium well--which our server said should be slightly pink. After a rather long wait, it arrived with blood spilling all over the mashed potatoes that it was placed over. After cutting into it--it was red to pink through out and raw in the middle, plus after taking a bite from the end, my daughter said it was chewy and tough. Our server took it back to be grilled further. On the whole, the dish just lacked imagination--just mashed potatoes and a portion of broccolini, so the cut should have been stellar, but it wasn't. The beef entrees used to be served with bearnaise butter, which was a wonderful complement, this appeared to have nothing on it. I ordered the $18 vegetarian entree--acorn squash with a filling of what could be described as creamed, but stringy kale topped with an egg and served with grilled bread. The dish lacked flavor, but more distracting was the overcooked egg--crusty and brown on the bottom and difficult to cut. The bread was black on the bottom--I have a picture! I should have sent the dish back if only to alert the chef to keep a closer eye on what leaves his kitchen--but regretfully, I didn't. It was painful to pay $150 plus tip for this meal. I hope the chef was just having a bad night.
Warm, cozy atmosphere and love the local flare and setting. Unfortunately, out of the six dinners prepared, two of the steak dishes were very fatty. Although the cheese plate is very good, the portion size is very small relative to the price. The service got a bit slow towards the end of the evening and we had to go find our waiter for some help.
Everything was spot on; the setting, the service, the food. My 19 year old son said his cheeseburger was the best he'd ever had, and he's had a few! My 16 year old son is a vegetarian and found many delicious choices to choose from. My mother loved that they had fresh trout and my 4 year old daughter adored the cat she found sitting by the outdoor fire pit. We will most definitely be returning and telling all our friends!
Great ambiance with great food. The service was outstanding. The cheese plate was amazing and we ended up buying some to take home with us. But all dishes were great. I suppose the farm-to-table taste is what food should really taste like. Definitely a great experience for all senses.
We had not been to Traders Point for awhile and we were glad we went back. The charcuterie is the best. We highly recommend it for their great cheeses. I had the ribeye; it is not your traditional ribeye because it is not as fatty but it was very good. My wife had the fish special and was very happy with it. The service was outstanding which was a complaint on some of our earlier visits. The waitress was very attentive without being overbearing. We really liked her. Overall it was a very nice evening and meal.
The Loft at Trader's Point never disappoints! This is our third or fourth time traveling here from Northwest Illinois just so that we can partake in there locally sourced cuisine and stock up on their dairy products. My daughter has a severe food allergy and this is one of the only restaurants that can truthfully cater to her and not cause a reaction - and they do it with no complaints.
I am a C.E.C. and although the food was very good, I was not happy with the Brioche bun the hamburger was served on. When paying $16 for a hamburger you’d expect it to be on a level much higher than an average hamburger. I almost sent it back but didn’t want to wait for another one. The burger itself was cooked perfectly and was incredible but the bun was stale and it flopped for me. I would definitely come back though!
