Eagle's Nest - Hyatt Regency Indianapolis Ratings and Reviews
The view and ambiance are worth a trip u ...
The view and ambiance are worth a trip up, once or twice. The food is no better than anywhere else, but priced like they are a five star restaurant. Like I said, only worth it for the view, and only once or twice. Not likely to become a favorite spot unless the menu and quality of food are greatly enhanced, or reduced in price. Menu was accordingly small in keeping with their supposition that what they offer they do extraordinarily well, but it was not that impressive. It is good, just not great. And for the same price downstairs/across the street, you can have incredible food with superior service. I can't say they would be any good for a special occasion either, as the hostess asked us if we were celebrating anything and when I told her my fiancée had said yes just minutes before, she smiled at us but the waiter never even mentioned the occasion and they didn't do anything for it.

Didn't get bread right away. Seemed to change wait staff a couple of times. Haddock was bland. Steak Diane was amazing. Arrived 15 minutes early for reservation and got seated right away. Service was slow, which is odd because the restaurant was not very busy at all.

The elevator to the restaurant and out took forever because it also services the hotel patrons. The waitress who took our order was not very good, did not explain menu even after asked for suggestions, she just blurted out what was on the menu. Did not refill drinks. The other server JJ who brought our food was better. Cleared our table appropriately. As far as food, the soup tasted like Campbell's. Our crab cake was slightly burnt. The prime rib was ok. The dining furniture looked old and the wall where our table and chairs were had a hole. It didn't look well kept. The only thing we liked about it was that it was revolving and you could see a nice view of Indy.

The food was very good, but the service was extremely slow on the night we were there. It did not appear to be overly crowded either. There were two servers that served, but it was unclear who was actually the server. Using open table was not easy for this restaurant. We had a party of 7 and it only allowed to indicate up to 6. Also, it was not clear if my reservation actually went through.

It took 15 minutes to have a server ask for a drink order. The server then came back to the table to ask clarifying questions regarding drinks ( what type of whiskey did u want, did u want it on the rocks, etc). We had a party of eight which the charged gratuities on the bill but did not mention that to us. We then added the tip to that amount. I'm sure the server knew that right away but said nothing. We realized this the next day and called. They refunded the extra tip immediately which was nice. We would have added more to the automatic gratuity charge had the server let us know at the time. It also took a very long time to have the entree served. The food was good though but not outstanding .

The ambiance is great, and the food was good. Not over the top good, but good. I was disappointed that their wine menu differed from what they had on their website. My husband and I were celebrating and ordered a bottle of Champagne. The waitress came back about 5 minutes later and told us that they were out of the bottle we had ordered, and all that they had available was a bottle that was $40 more than what we had ordered. Online, I had seen 3 bottles in my price range, but only one was listed on their menu. We told the waitress we were disappointed because we were celebrating and had wanted a champagne toast, but we opted to order a red wine by the glass instead. No one ever asked what we were celebrating, and no manager ever stopped by the table. I would recommend this place just for the view, as it was pretty amazing spinning around the city so high up. The windows could use a good cleaning, but I imagine that is not an easy task.

The service and food was great. The view was so-so! The revolving restaurant in Kansas City has a much nicer view.
The dining chairs were terrible to say the least. Sat very low and the padding was simply not there. It felt like you were sitting on a wood crate. My wife and I both were given pillow cushions to sit on. The staff was very familiar with the bad chairs and encouraged us to sit on a pillow. We noticed we were not the only ones. Staff said they were getting ready to undergo a renovation; however, it doesn't take a renovation to replace the old chairs with something that is comfortable.
To spend well over $200 on a meal for my wife and I, I would have expected more class and comfort.

The view was great, and the restaurant is unique for sure. As far as the food and service is concerned, we did not think the Eagles Nest was up to expectations given the expense. We waited over an hour to be served dinner, my steak had to be sent back due to it not being done correctly, and the food was just okay. It was very expensive and parking alone was $15 after validation. We likely will not be back.

Very dated. The rotation of the restaurant is not smooth. It's a slightly bumpy ride. Ordered prime rib which was represented as one of the best dishes, was very dry and seemed to be a bad cut of meat. Service was very good. Will not return.

Wonderful time, great atmosphere, everyone should try Eagle's Nest. However, we did have to pay $26. for parking, were there less than two hours. Certainly are not going to let the parking mistake keep us from returning, will be back.

I thought celebrating at the Eagle's Nest would be the perfect place to my husbands and I one year wedding anniversary but I was so wrong. The hostess was on her phone when we walked off the elevator and we had to wait for her to put the phone down (younger African American female). I asked for flowers to be on the table with a note because I wanted to make it special for my husband and it was ruined when I had to ask the waitress where the flowers and card were. The waitress had no idea it was our anniversary when I specifically stated that when making the reservation. The hostess said there was nothing she could do about the flowers and card because she could not find anything with our name on it. My husband tried being nice and said it was ok and I said no it's not because I'm embarrassed that the Restaruant did not prepare for our reservation better. Once the waitress remembered that she did not give my card back until 20 mins after she took it from me she said sorry for embarrassing you happy anniversary! I can't believe how insensitive the staff was at the Eagle's Nest.

I have made it a point to dine at the Eagles' Nest whenever I travel to Indianapolis; it remains a favorite dinner spot. Of course, the foremost attraction is the view, and the slow, 360-degrees-in-75-minutes rotation of the dining floor. My latest visit wasn't as good as past visits, but it was still excellent in many ways. I came with two other colleagues following a day-long conference nearby. We shared a cheese/charcuterie appetizer that was tasty but modest for three. My companions had the salmon and the filet mignon, which were done perfectly; I had the barbecue pork chop, which was delicious, but one notch too done. Full of flavor, but a bit dry and a bit tough. We skipped dessert, but enjoyed coffee and conversation for awhile after the meal. Our server Jared, was top-drawer (but his assistant wasn't quite as prompt as I would prefer--absolutely no other lapses). The ambiance wasn't as nice as in past visits; the tablecloths are gone, and the place settings/flatware are now more casual. This would be okay, except that the bare furniture is somewhat worn--upholstered chairs were stained and the table had nicks and scratches--and needs freshening. And although the rotation is noticeable and subtle (as it should be), the floor quivered somewhat during a portion of the circuit. All in all, it was still an excellent dining experience, and worth the higher price.

The Eagle's Nest is a great place to visit if you have some extra cash burning a hole in your pocket and you want to impress your guests. The food tasted great and looked impressive. The service was good but a bit slow at times.
Parking here can be really expensive. The hotel garage charges an inordinate amount for just a few hours, and the valet parking charges you more than is advertised on the Eagle's Nest website. We were told by the valet driver, "We keep telling Eagle's Nest to update their website, but they haven't yet."

Hostess was rather unpleasant. I was dining alone and she totally avoided conversation as she walked me to my table after I simply commented about the weather. Server was similar. Barely spoke and I had to ask about specials or recommendations. Food was ok. Not as expected for the price. View is great but apart from that, not worth the price

Very nice restaurant for a special occasion. Upscale not a kid friendly restaurant. Nice revolving view of downtown. I think you pay for the ambiance as well as the food, a little pricey for what you get. Overall a nice quiet special occasion spot.

It was very wonderful, the view was beautiful as the sun was getting ready to set. There was also someone who proposed behind us which just made us smile and put us in a lively mood. The service was fantastic and even better the food. I wish there was a little more entree choices but with what they have it was excellent. This was my third time going and I can say I'll be back again.

Food was excellent!! Service was great! However the inside of the restaurant could use some remodeling and updating . My wife went to sit in her chair and it was really stained up and we both felt like we were going to fall through which made us sit a little low for the table! They must be old. Appreciated the note from the staff congratulating us on our 33rd anniversary :) but no other special treatment than that.

Egale's Nest is a great place to relax and enjoy the 360dgree view of downtown. The portions are not exactly worth the price, but the taste sure is. Plus, there was a cute, hand-written birthday card from the management waiting for my girlfriend (in the "Notes" of my OpenTable reservation, I mentioned the dinner was fr a birthday, and ask if there was anything special we could do. I didn't get a response, but the birthday card was definitely a nice touch!).
Worth going to
Definitely a great place for a quite dinner or business meeting. Service was good but not exceptional. Food was good but not exceptional. Had to constantly as for things, drinks, deserts, etc. May have been a staffing issue. Overall I would recommend.

The evening was wonderful and the food and service was great. Our table had prime rib, filet, the vegetarian dish and the crab crusted halibut. For starters we enjoyed the flatbread, the charcuterie board, and the walnut bread. (Would really like to have the walnut bread toasted for breakfast!) We all split the rum cake. The atmosphere is not as staid as the past, but still elegant and special.
I decided on the Eagle's Nest to celebrate my girlfriends birthday. She and I have been together for a while and I thought she deserved someplace special. Our server, the ambiance, the food were well beyond our expectations and I look forward to returning for our next special event.
Great service. Good food. Eh view. Shabby interior
Better than expected service and decent food for a revolving restaurant that primarily touts a view, even if some of the time the view is marred by distracting roofs and air conditioners. Waitstaff was personable and attentive. However, the upholstered dining chairs have seen their day, caving in and stained. Walls need some attention, corners beaten to death. Restaurant needs a fresh coat of paint and update.
