    The cuisine was excellent, as were the selections. Donald Thorn provided exceptional service and strong recommendations on our meal selections, wine to pair with our entrees and the side dishes. Most appreciated was the relaxed pacing of the courses so we could fully enjoy our meals.

    As usual, the quality of the food was incredibly good. Our wait person (Jodie) was excellent and was always attentive. She was personable and the overall service really stood out.

    Service started out good but then server forgot about us. Never once came back to ask how food turned out once it came. Both of our steaks were crispy and burnt on the outside. I wanted to say something to the server but she never came back around until dessert. Bus boy cleared plates before I had the chance. I have a feeling she knew the steaks were completely overdone and didn’t want the confrontation. We ended up just paying because we waited so long but as far as steaks go, they were pretty flavorless, burnt and not worth the cost. Luckily the other sides/app made up for the loss. If you want a good steak, this is not the place.

    Tremendous! Andy was an incredible server, everything about the meal was fantastic. Obviously, the shrimp cocktail is always mentioned - nice size and the cocktail sauce is mouthwatering. The ribeye was both a perfect cut, perfect balance of fat/meat and cooked 100% spot on. Everything that hit the table was delicious - drinks, salad, bread, plus everything you already read above. Can’t wait to come back to Indy; this is a must every time I’m in town.
