“Great service. $$$”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2014

The location is easy to get to the center of Indianapolis near all the hotels within walking distance. The service was excellent and the general atmosphere was elegant. The food is pricey but you get what you pay for steak in the salmon was amazing. Would recommend for a high-end dinner quiet time with your spouse or loved one.

“Steak House Heaven”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014

We all know it's incredibly unhealthy to eat the offerings at a place like this (or at least we SHOULD all know by now!), but if you want an excellent piece of beef, this is the type of place to head to. They thrive on slapping down a big piece 'o meat in front of you cooked to perfection, and certainly hit that mark when I was there for a business meal last month. I have to rate it only four stars simply because I find the overabundance and extreme prices almost untenable - smaller portions at a more reasonable price would certainly be a welcome addition to the menu. We left with pounds of food left to be thrown away from our meals - couldn't bring it home since just visiting on business. Senseless to force such huge portions, but that's part of the steak-house legend. And there is something about them bringing out a steak sizzling away on the heated plate that just can't be beat! Enjoy for what it is, then feel guilty at all you've consumed!

“Enjoyed it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2014 via mobile

The food was excellent, steak done just right, and appetizers fresh and tasty. Wine list on an iPad is becoming standard, but prices are astronomical. A good Napa wine that should cost $120 with restaurant markup will run you twice that. Good news, if you want to splurge, they have some good ones.

“Delightful!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

We ate at the bar on a Friday eve..perfect.. the service was impeccable..( we ordered a chopped salad to split. It is served as a tall cylinder shape with onion rings on top. As the server was splitting it, it fell over, he was going to leave to get another so the presentation was correct. We had to insist he did not) The steak and chicken were both marvelous and steaming hot. The sides enough for two. The wine served proper temps for both red and white.

“Nice dinner, food not over the top as expected”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2014

I had dinner here one night while on a business trip. I knew ahead of time that the food was pricey and everything was ala carte. My steak was not cooked to the medium well that I ordered, there was red inside, but it was still very good, (one small piece of gristle). (The person with me also ordered her steak medium well and it was perfect.) I had a side of grilled mushrooms which was OK. I liked that they did a coat check so we all didn't have our heavy coats to deal with. The service was very good.
