"The only problem we had was that the music was too loud and intruded on our conversation. Our server was kind about getting it turned down, but it returned to a loud level shortly after."

"The Alexander hotel is beautiful. The cerulean restaurant is average decor and service. Our server was unfamiliar with the menu and could not recommend any entree. Our steak was fatty and greasy tasting. The salmon was good however. Maybe the lunch menu would be better but we will not return for dinner. There are plenty of other quality restaurants in the downtown area."

"The menu changes with chef's choices, and the combination of ingredients is always inspiring. Many imaginatively chosen flavors and textures that all work together very well. Foodies will enjoy this one. The menu is somewhat limited, but I think most will be able to find something that suits their tastes. Each time you visit you will also get free little plates of sample items in between your courses. Nice touch! The wine list is ample, but only one choice in each variety is available by the glass. Our waiter's service this last time was a little lackluster, but maybe he was just having a bad day. We still had our water glasses filled regularly and plates cleared by the extra hands they have circling around. Good experience and food."

"The food was incredibly amazing! The presentation and flavor was wonderful. Our server was very knowledgeable and friendly. However I was mislead by the tastings pricing. I thought the price was for the whole table, not each. That was a bit shocking. I would go back again but would not spend that much."

"My wife and I were passing through Indy from St. Louis. I chose Cerulean based on reviews and best-of-Indy lists I read. I was looking for a top-notch meal without lots of healthy choices. We loved our meal. Very fresh ingredients. Inventive combinations and presentations. Excellent meal on every level."

"Was in Indy for business. Server was very pleasant and professional. Service was a bit slow as they seemed under staffed.
Pros- the cheese and charcuterie was really good. The duck breast was delicious too.
Cons- the NY Strip was a really, really small portion and especially for the price. It was maybe 4-6 oz at best. This was a big disappointment for my business guests."

"We always love Cerulean for a number of different things -- clever food, gorgeous presentation, terrific libation options... but by and large, go for the Lamb Burger. The best for miles! The only thing is, Cerulean only allows you to get it in their bar area -- which is crazy town! Any way to corral that burger into the main dining area?? Please please please."

"I've eaten at Cerulean three times. It is a very cool atmosphere in both the bar and dining room. The food is very good and service has always been excellent. It's a great place for a romantic dinner"

"Had the place to ourselves for lunch. Interesting menu. The prixe fixe was nicely portioned and full of rich, bold flavors. Enjoyed speaking with our server about the restaurant scene in Indianapolis and its evolution over the years."

"We had a party of seven on a week night. The service was painfully slow. The food was ok for some and others it was horribly over seasoned. Our bill was over $450. I used to love this restaurant but after this most recent experience I doubt I would go back or recommend it."

"We were in Indianapolis for the Women's Final Four and wanted to have one nice dinner there. Cerulean ended up being an excellent choice and was near the fieldhouse. The food and service were good and the wine list while not lengthy had some nice wines at various price points. The food and the platings were more innovative than we expected. The octopus and crudo appetizers were particularly good. Overall a great dining experience. We will definitely return on our next visit to Indianapolis."

"Spent a leisurely 2 hour lunch at the Cerulean last week and loved every minute. Glory, our waitress was a delight and the food/wine was excellent. We felt very comfortable in a cozy booth and the entire meal was unhurried. Would recommend to anyone wishing to experience a unique menu and extensive wine list."

"The word "unique" is bantered about the hospitality industry far too frequently to describe what I perceive as pretentiousness. In the case of Cerulean, there are many "hits", but a statistically significant number of "misses". Our server brought a soupcon of herbed cheese with smoked salmon garnished with ramps as an aperitif. It was the perfect amuse-gueule to our main courses. I chose the "Heartland N.Y. Strip" with a puree of roasted eggplant, crimini mushrooms in a red wine reduction, and Hakurei Turnips. It was a masterpiece of presentation, unfortunately marred by the Strips lackluster flavor and 30-chew-per-bite texture. I had the distinct impression that accompaniments were there to "amp-up" an otherwise inferior piece of meat. My wife ordered the "Berkeshire Pork Loin"crusted with sesame and served with fresh fennel, carrots, barley, and brussels sprouts leaf. In a word; interesting, but suffered the same last-part-over-the-fence fate of my N.Y. Strip. Cerulean's strength is the marriage of seemingly random ingredients into a cohesive dish. By all means go for the impeccable service, minimalist vibe, and top notch cocktails. However, ask for a written copy of the meats pedigree prior to ordering ;-)"

"The seabass was very mediocre. My husband's pork loin was tasteless. We felt that the food was not special at all and very expensive."

"Had our first dinner at this establishment. Bravo to the chef for one of the highest quality and approachable haut cuisine meals I have enjoyed in years. The altering of distinctive flavors and textures, in each dish, was a delight to the pallet. If the beet first course is still on the menu, DO NOT MISS IT!"
