Peterson's Ratings and Reviews

What a wonderful experience! We were celebrating our anniversary and were treated "royally".
The food, wine and our "private" table were terrific. Our server, Noel, was quite knowledgeable about your wines and food. She also was very considerate.

We had lovely evening with excellent service in a tasteful and elegant setting. The pretzel rolls will make you break your diet. Two of us ordered the filet and it was outstanding. The spinach salad was a little too oily for my taste, but nice and fresh. We enjoyed the mashed potato and creamed corn side dishes. The special was red snapper, which was properly cooked but a little bland- hence the 4 star rating. We indulged in the brownie dessert. It was worth every calorie. We would be very happy to dine here in the future.

Horrible experience. Had high expectations based on word of mouth. We must have caught them on a bad night. At our table for 15 minutes before even being greeted. Had a salad 1 hour after being seated. Steak was dry and had no taste. Shrimp cocktail was weak. The whole time I was wishing I was at Ruth Chris or Flemings. Was there to celebrate a wedding anniversary. Bad decision.
Great meal and service for a special occ ...
Great meal and service for a special occasion (48th Anniversary). Not inexpensive but comparable or less than many of the top end restaurants and less than many of the "steak houses". The staff knew of our anniversary through Open Table and everyone greeted us warmly with congratulations. Our server and the wine steward were great.

Peterson's delivers consistently high quality of food and service. They offer a strong wine selection and full bar, but limited offering of beer. This is an excellent location for special occasions, romantic dinners, or business dinner for small groups (4-6 persons). There is a private dining room for larger groups.

Very long wait for our food. Finally ask for our bill because it was 20 minutes after we ordered it and still didn't have it. They ended up bringing it (no charge) still had to wait on my bill...I was over it I wanted out! Our table was by the entrance to kitchen VERY loud not to mention the couple beside us was fighting . Loud using the F*** word free flowing (lack of intelligence for a better word I guess) Our food was good... But a long wait

First bad experience here. It took the server too long to greet us once we were seated. Then it took over 25 minutes for our appetizers and bread to come out. My steak was overcooked and I sent it back. The presentation of the side dishes was not good. I don't think we we'll be returning.

Loved the peace and atmosphere but definitely not the standard of 2 years ago.
My husbands lamb was tough, could not saw thru it even with a serated knife!
Certainly not good value - overpriced for the quality of meal.

When visiting Indy, I always make a point to get to Peterson's. Fantastic steak and a glass of house wine from their exceptional wine list. During this visit, we had the opportunity to learn from their bartender and enjoy some special scotch. Try the FEW gin - a nice treat!

Nice to return after two years, but disappointed in the ambience of the restaurant, in that interior hasn't been changed since it opened. Very tired looking & seats in booths need some work. Other than that, our server, Russell, was fantastic, tending to our every need & making sure we were satisfied with everything. We will be back.

The food was pretty good but didn't have any "wow factor". The poor rating for ambiance was due to our hostess refusing our request for a booth because 'you need to reserve them when you make your reservation' and then watching another hostess move another couple to a booth after they asked to change and obviously hadn't 'reserved' that special spot. It was kind of a downer since we only get an expensive dinner out once or twice a year. I think we can find a better place next time.

We are first time diners and were pleasantly surprised with our experience. From the hostess stand we were greeted and taken to our table by a woman named Lea. She was very professional and friendly. Our waiter Brian hit all the right notes in serving us. We ordered wine and was served a very tasty amuse-bouche of Tuna Tartare with the compliments of the Chef.
We ordered Steaks that were prepared to perfection. Our sides were a smoky creamed corn and mashed potatoes, both very tasty.
The GM came to our table to check on our experience. The hostess Lea stopped by as well. She suggested that we should experience the triple layer chocolate cake for dessert. It was a huge slice and Needless to say it was yummy.
My husband and i have a date night on Friday evenings and we both felt that Petersen's made the evening a perfect, lovely experience. The truffles were a nice touch too.
Petersen's will be our restaurant of choice many times in the future. Thank you so much, two happy people😊
Second time we've been to Peterson's and definitely our last! Service was very good but the food has never been anywhere near that of Ruth Chris, Fleming's or Sullivan's.
Spend your hard earned dollars at one of these restaurants and you will be much, much happier.
Steaks and Seafood
Superb in both categories. Beautifully prepared filet, cooked precisely as ordered and a second entree for us of large sea scallops. Prices dictate this a place for special occasions unless you have a generous expense account! Great service in a friendly, welcoming atmosphere.
Perfect for Special Occasions
This adults-only restaurant is our absolute favorite for special occasions! Classy yet comfortable atmosphere, with excellent service. Wide variety of perfectly prepared meats and seafood, including daily specials. Best steaks in Indianapolis, especially considering the price. Extensive wine list and drink selection. My husband loved the Prime Rib, and my favorite is the Lobster Bisque.

We had a nice dinner at Peterson's. I had a bowl of the lobster bisque and my husband had the wedge salad. Both were delicious. I ordered the 8oz filet with truffle butter and my husband had the bone in strip. Both were cooked perfect and were very good. The only thing we were disappointed with were the au gratin potatoes we ordered as a side. They were cubed potatoes with very little cheese flavor. Luckily we were both too full from the other food that we did not need/eat the potatoes. Unfortunately we were too full for dessert as well (which is always my favorite part!) but they sounded delicious.
