Superb City View - best backdrop for local dining!

We decided to go here to celebrate my husband's birthday--and we were visiting family locally so they could accompany us to "interpret" the view [buildings and parks below].

My wife and I dined here July 2015 at 7 pm. although the sun would not set by the conclusion of dinner, the view of the city was still a nice change of pace. The only reason i did not rate "excellent" is due to the limited menu. We were seated immediately, our service was great and the Filet's were... More

We came here for my fiancé's birthday. We started with the crab cakes and rosé and it was delicious. He got the prime rib and I got the filet, both were absolutely amazing. The cookies and cream was the perfect way to end the night. Our waitress was attentive but not lingering. One of the best places to celebrate a... More

We had salads and drinks. It is a revolving restaurant, top floor of the Hyatt. Service was friendly and efficient. Great place to watch the lightning storms!

There now hard to find revolving restaurants and this is a gem. I went a late afternoon and just before the dinner crowd. The service was great, but we were disappointed in the appetizers, especially the buffalo carpaccio. I ordered prime rib and it was filling and delightful... I would certainly take another "round" when in town.

Great view of the city as you sit window side and the entire serving area slowly rotates 360 degrees. The food and service is excellent. As good as this was, you're paying for the ambiance. Make sure you take out a second mortgage before showing up.

Took the waiters recommendations for dinners, after dinner drinks and desserts. Could not have made better choices, will always ask for the waiter or waitresses recommended choice. The salmon was the best I have ever ate, my husband said the filet melted in his mouth, guest loved the walleye. Well played Eagles Nest.

Wonderful, expensive date night in a rotating restaurant high above downtown Indianapolis. The views are just as amazing as the food!

The view was beautiful my husband and I loved sitting and enjoying the view. The staff was extremely polite, friendly, and helpful. They made the experience wonderful. The food however was "not good" I would suggest eating somewhere else and then going to the Eagles Nest for a cocktail and dessert.
