This restaurant is fabulous. We did a charcuterie board and our waiter made some great recommendations. The piparras peppers and white bean hummus are must adds to your board. Will definitely do again next time we are in Indy.

This is a really pretty restaurant bar but it’s almost like they stopped there and decided to get cute with the menu and forgot that people like to make simple decisions rather than dealing with complexity. And who doesn’t have don Julio tequila in inventory....More

The staff was friendly and had good suggestions of what items to order. The tuna appetizer dish was good the gnocchi was amazing, the mushrooms that were in the dish really made it. I knew the plates were small but they did seem extra small.
