Every year I bring my customers here as a casual business meal.

We always look forward to the Shrimp Cocktail especially.

Steaks, sides, service is always outstanding and always great ambiance.

Look forward to next year !

One of the best restaurants I've been too! The shrimp cocktail is fabulous but crazy with a lot of horseradish! Steak and everything else is outstanding, great wait staff!
A must when visiting Indianapolis!

Very very slow service and no recognition or apology. Room was very cold and uncomfortable. A really disappointing experience for so much $. Steak was too rare for medium too and then waitress argued to say it truly was medium. I worked in restaurants, i know medium and rare. Waitress had no sense or recognition of how long we waited. In all fairness, she was probably overwhelmed w too many tables.

We Like St Elmo's in the past and enjoyed very much our experience this time even more. I requested a great table because we were celebrating 2 birthdays. We were placed next to the beautiful wine cellar and had a wonderful waiter. He took us on a tour and told us some interesting information that we enjoyed! The food this time was not so great... We are a custom to the highest quality food and we didn't feel that we received what we paid for.

We went there to celebrate a birthday. I personally think that this restaurant is over-rated. The table was very small and cramped, the noise loud and the food good, but not great. My own meal was not good at all. The others were adequate. It would have been ok, if not so terribly expensive. I just don't think the quality matches the prices here.

This dinner was our company Christmas party. Saturday night was very busy downtown and the restaurant was packed. Two sides we were served were cold, and they mixed up the meals when they brought them out, and we only hope that we got the right cut of steak to the right person. I expected a little more for the price. It was hard to hear our server explain things due to the noise.

We travel from Terre Haute to celebrate most important occasions. This past Saturday was such an
occasion. Whenever we come to St. Elmos we always ask for Phillip Stark as our waiter. He is by far the most accommodating waiter we have ever had the pleasure of knowing. We asked specifically for him this past weekend and we did not have him. He was working , but downstairs where we have been before when he works down there. He was surprised when he did not have us. He told us he was going to be there and was looking forward to seeing us. He even came upstairs to our table to visit and apologized for the mixup. Hopefully we won't be disappointed again. The food however was as good as always . I mentioned my filet was the best I had ever had, even from St. Elmos previously.

Reserved a table upstairs 3 days earlier but they stuck us in a crowded room downstairs, felt like boarding school setting. Waiters seemed to push $$ items and while they weren't bad, they weren't good, very average at an above average priced place.

This is the place that sets the standard for a great steak. The Bone In Prime Rib will melt your heart and fill your stomach with love.
If you truly want to melt try the Shrimp Cocktail, your sinus cavity will be clean as new!

Wonderful dinner, as always! Also, I have celiac disease. The server was very helpful in navigating the menu with me. The manager came to the table as well to confirm there wasn't any flour in my dinner choices. Being able to have a delicious, quiet, special anniversary dinner without the fear of not feeling well later is priceless. THANK YOU!!!

Two of our guests ordered the grilled port chips and both were very cold when they tried them. They did not send the food back but we’re very disappointed in the temperature. Others at the table were pleased with their food. The waiter seemed to have a lot of tables to cover as they were very busy. We will not have our yearly meeting at this location again. We were also in the lower level and none of us had a cell phone signal. Overall it was a good meal.
