Food was great, service was outstanding. Went with a large group for a business dinner and the staff handled it well. If you go try the Mac & Cheese.

In terms of food this restaurant is one of the best in Indianapolis. Their decoration type old english pub is kind of disappointing. Very expensive. Expect between 60 to 80 per person if you include one appetizer and a glass of withe in addition to the main dish (If you go for dessert as well even more)

The food and service were excellent!! The fillet and sides were excellent. The salad with house made mozzarella was exceptional! Dole pineapple martini is great. Desserts were great too!

The food and service here is great. Everyone in our group had nothing but good to say about the food. It is a meat intensive menu with some seafood. No pasta. It is expensive in my opinion. But that would be my only negative comment. This is a place for special occasions in my opinion. But I'd love to go... More

The Generous Pour is not to be missed! Outstanding wines that are typically not available by the glass, coupled with outstanding entrees and we split a salad (no extra charge). Our server, Bill Turner, was outstanding and we requested him a second time. The ambiance was delightful at both our recent visits with a relatively mild noise level. The Wagyu... More

Went out for dinner with my mom, and we ended up having the best meal we've both had in a very long time. We are a bit early and had the whole room to ourselves. Service was awesome. They were not only attentive, but also offering a wine taste before buying a glass, making honest suggestions, and suggesting we split... More

This small branch of the chain is in the downtown area across from the Centre City Mall. Excellent menu with high quality steaks prepared beautifully. The service was good. I did NOT like the flavoring on their creamed spinach. Nice wine list. Decent cocktail list. Great dessert.

From the reservation to the seating and dining, this restaurant is run well. There is always a follow up call to confirm the reservation and reservations are a must at this busy place. The location at the Conrad downtown always has a vibe of the life of the City. We were greeted happily in the midst of other diners, waiting... More
