The service overall could use some improvement. I made a reservation requesting outdoor seating. Usually if you make a request the restaurant reaches out to you. I get to the restaurant only to be told “we don’t accept reservations for outdoor dining”, and that the wait would be 30-60 minutes. As we go to leave we see 2 tables being bussed outside? A hostess on a Saturday night should know when tables are being turned. So we then turn around request a table and are sat in 5 minutes! We almost LEFT!! The waitress wasn’t great either. I asked for recommendations and she only recommended the salmon and scallops... although the menu is quite extensive. I ordered the beef tenderloin. It was pretty good. Potatoes and veggies were over salted. But it was a decent meal. My friends said their meals were good. I’m not sure that I would be a repeat customer if I lived in Indy, but it was decent overall. I’m a stickler for service and when it’s lacking the experience is ruined for me.

We had great service and recommendations. The food was excellent - we tried a charcuterie board, fries and two smaller entrees. Everything exceeded expectations!

The $34 halibut special was a bit too complicated and sweet for such a mild ocean fish. A nice pairing with scallops perhaps.

Wow! What a culinary surprise and exceptionally friendly service. The pairing of spices, sauces and herbs in the main dishes are Bobby Flay beatable. We had the pork and lamb shank (a weekend special). Did not leave a bite. This weekend will be perfect on the patio. If we weren’t from out of town, we’d be there!

We celebrated my birthday here, and our server went above and beyond to make the day special (even though I didn’t even tell her- she just noticed when checking my ID!). She brought us free champagne, and even gave me a free dessert with a candle. The food and drinks were delicious too. Would definitely recommend for special occasions like birthdays!

Have been her numerous times and always a wonderful experience. Food is fabulous and portions for entrees are significant. You can’t go wrong with anything on the menu. If you enjoy cocktails they have many options. They are known for their variety of bourbons. Dessert menu is a bit weak but we usually are to full anyway.

Parking is an issue. I don’t like the fact that I would be charged for valet to park in the lot to then go inside and spend $100 or more on my dinner and drinks. I would think maybe if your ticket came to over $65 they should waive your parking fee. Seems like a gouge! By the way, I’m a very generous tipper with my servers and waitstaff.

We loved the whole experience. The restaurant is beautiful in an eclectic way, the food was outstanding and such a great value! I even loved sitting next to the expo table, watching all the yummy food prepared to be served. It helped us decide what to eat!

Can't wait to go back and try more!

Sat at a high top in the bar area. Fun drink menu and food options are wide without too big of a menu. The pastrami poutine was amazing, chicken wings could have been crisper, gnocchi was great, bone marrow kind of got overpowered by BBQ topping, but was really approachable if you haven't had marrow before.
