Had an absolutely lovely lunch yesterday. For $20 you get a three course meal, and if you want, for a little extra, beer, wine or a cocktail. The dining room is on the top floor in the old home of Stouffers restaurant at 28th and Meridian with gorgeous views of the city on three sides. Staff was warm and accommodating and is happy to please. Seems to be every Thursday for lunch and dinner. I encourage EVERYONE to support this Culinary School at Ivy Tech!

I absolutely love the food here, but our visit last night was a little rough. The wings were cold when they arrived but the wait time was so long that my friends just ate them because they were so hungry. The personal pizzas we got tasted good but were nearly cold as well. It was clear that there was just an extreme staffing shortage. The food is quality, though, and I will definitely give them another shot.

Really great dining experience! Absolutely the best service you could imagine! Kash is possibly the best server ever, she is attentive but never intrudes, she remembers everything about you, anticipates your needs, she’s cheerful and friendly and just generally makes you feel so welcome!
