Great building. Staff was outstanding. Steaks very good, but the price was high. We were there on a week night but the place was busy. Wine list had a lot of variety but not lots of wine. Good beer list.

My husband and I visited this restaurant for the first time for our anniversary. The food was absolutely delicious! I had the dry-aged bone-in ribeye which was exquisite! No steak sauce was needed for this steak. We split the truffle fries with shaved parmesan (it was a huge serving). My husband said his filet was cooked perfectly. No one could... More

My husband and I went here for our 10 year anniversary, and the food was excellent. Top five best meals we have had. Definitely would recommend.

My husband and I ate here for our anniversary. When we first arrived for our reservation at 6:30 we were the only people in the entire restaurant. Our waiter was nice and knowledgeable, but not necessarily friendly. We started with the calamari and rock shrimp appetizer. It was good, batter was light, and it was not chewy at all. My... More

We had dinner here while visiting in town for the Indy 500. My wife and I shared a Delmonico steak and it was excellent - plenty of steak for the two of us. We had a couple of sides and they were also good. The service was excellent. We would certainly go back again.

Prime 47 is a good place to eat. The Caesar salad is excellent and I had the demonico ribeye and it was good but nothing special. Was charred on the outside.

As a guest, I have no reason to complain but if I had been paying, I would not give this restaurant a good review. I requested my steak "Medium Well", it was next to raw. Very expensive and I would expect the staff to know how to satisfy the customer. In addition, the coffee, when served, was cold.

Four of us had an absolutely wonderful dinner experience last night. The decor was very pleasant and contemporary. We got there abut 6:00 and it was not crowded at all. Two servers introduced themselves as hey took our drink order and were very attentive and unobtrusive throughout the evening. The food was excellent! I had the small filet which was... More

The location and ambiance are a 10. The appetizers are a 10 - best crab cake I've ever had!! The drinks and wine list are a 10. They even have the right type of block ice for high end bourbons. The Manhattan they made for me was a 10. The entrees were a 9. They were great but I wasn't... More

Upscale dining where service sets it apart. Our waiters were amazing...really took of us. We had the filet, sea bass, and ribeye. All cooked to perfection as you would expect. We had the calamari appetizer that could feed a family! Grilled asparagus was fantastic but creamed spinach was far too salty. Great atmosphere. For a fancy night out to celebrate... More

Prime 47...Indy's Steakhouse is Indianapolis's only locally owned & operated Prime Steakhouse. In addition to our wonderful steaks we offer a variety a fresh seafood and an extensive wine list. What really sets Prime 47 apart from other Indy steakhouses is our staff. Our servers work in teams of two to ensure that every guests has the Prime Experience. Set in the Majestic Building, Prime 47...Indy's Steakhouse is a site to behold. Built in 1895 for the Indiana Gas Company, this unique building has a lot to offer. From its original tile floors, marble columns and 18-foot windows to view Pennsylvania and Maryland Streets, the atmosphere starts from the ground up. Prime 47 is one of the few downtown Indianapolis steakhouses that features live music nightly.
