Prime 47 - Indianapolis Ratings and Reviews

I tend to be on the hunt for the best overall experience... Prime 47 can give you that! The manager stops by the table the piano is playing and the food is well worth the money. Instead of a steak presented with a bunch of pretty colors you get a steak on a plate that is worth every penny you pay instead of a so so with nice presentation.... I will be returning often! P.S. Give any appetizer A shot they are very well stacked!

This was my first time visiting Prime 47 and I must say it definitely won't be my last! The food and service were fantastic. My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary and we received royal treatment. We received a framed picture of our day, which was such a nice touch to the entire evening. I decided to get the dry-aged bone-in ribeye...it was absolutely amazing...I devoured it. We split the truffle fries (enough for 4 people) which complimented my steak nicely. My husband thoroughly enjoyed his filet as well. We will be back!

Menu choices and food quality and preparation was very good. The calamari/shrimp appetizer was excellent and large enough for six to share. Steaks prepared correctly, very tender, flavorful. Sea bass was excellent.
Service was slow. After our waiter brought our appetizer and showed us the steak tray he disappeared and we had to track him down to place our order. On a very slow Monday night, our food order was 40 minutes in the kitchen before being served. Overall a nice evening - I would go back but would ask for a different waiter.

The menu was a good solid steak house menu. Unfortunately the food did not measure up. I specifically asked if tomatoes were ripe and was told yes but they had the flavor of cardboard. The steak was tough and ran over $50. For that price it should have been at least very good, but it was not. Twice baked potato was good. The waiter was very good except for the mislead on the tomato
I was very disappointed in both the serv ...
I was very disappointed in both the service and the food. Provided the cost of the offerings on the menu, I would expect the chefs to be able to prepare the meal to perfection. Unfortunately, my simple selection of chicken parm was significantly overcooked, to the point of not being chewable. There were two servers for our group of 5 - one server was attentive and responsive to requests; however, the second server was extremely haughty and did not listen to simple requests or instructions from me. Given that I had included a note in my reservations that I was dining with very important clients and was hoping for an excellent experience, coupled with the fact that I was the individual responsible for paying the bill, I would have expected at least a response to my requests or instructions. Very disappointed and will not be returning.

This was probably the best dining experience we have had in downtown Indy in quite some time. The flavor of each dish was phenomenal. We had the calamari, lobster mac n cheese, and each had the 12oz filets with different enhancements (creamy-spicy crab and brandy peppercorn sauce) that were both equally as enjoyable. We finished off dinner with a delicious half baked cookie with ice cream - will definitely be back!
Very nice restaurant with great food. It ...
Very nice restaurant with great food. It's in a great location in downtown Indy. All of the staff was friendly and cordial. The only complaint that I would have was there was a rather musty smell upon entering the restaurant. Perhaps it is because Prime 47 is located in an older historic building. Nonetheless we would dine there again. Good place!
While very expensive, the food portions, quality, and service made it worth it. The food was absolutely excellent. Biggest thing I want to note is be aware of how huge the sides are. I assumed the sides would be very small so each I, my mother and father ordered a side. The sides are sized as though to be shared. Consequently we had quite the feast in front of us when food was served.
Food was served very quickly too.
Too early or off night
While our waiter's were both good, the bread was stale and cold my wife's filet was cold, we sent it back they brought it back less cold at best. The asparagus looked great but was terribly over seasoned.
On the up side my scallops and risotto along with the twice baked was very good.
We had a couple of drinks at the bar - great Old Fashion! We then ate dinner - Filets, sides, and Wine. The wine list was amazing and it was hard to narrow it down! The food was cooked to perfection - melt in your mouth filet. We will be back again for sure. I highly recommend this restaurant if you want great tasting food and a variety of options. The must do place for any special occasion or date.
Steaks okay but not close to expectation ...
Steaks okay but not close to expectations for the cost and their self proclamations. Waiter was very arrogant! Nice environment but very noisy. Couldn't hear across the table which was a negative for our business dinner (round table of 8). 8 people, $1,150, disappointing. .
A 30th Birthday
We chose Prime 47 for its incredibly high level of service and incredible menu. My three friends are from Great Britain and all work for the same company, and with all of their travels they have chosen Prime as their number one spot in the US. It was one of the three's 30th bday, and were promptly seated upon arrival at a "Prime" table, even though I don't think I saw a poorly situated table anywhere. Prime 47 also gave us a personalized menu with a birthday salutation printed right on top! I really think a "6th Star" rating should be applicable for Prime!
Cheers to them!
My New Go-to Steak Place in Indy
Indianapolis has a plethora of steak restaurant options, and I've had the chance to sample many of them. Prime 47 gets the checkered flag in my book. The rich 1920's ambiance makes it feel like a steakhouse, the service was attentive yet professional, and the memory of my ribeye steak still makes my mouth water. Our waiter recommended I order one level more done than usual, so I went with medium. What a great tip - the steak was tender, oozing juicy, rich flavor with every bite. I'm not a dessert guy, but my guests are and they raved about their choices: a plate size chocolate chip cookie with vanilla ice cream and a new menu addition: an espresso, peanut butter bread pudding. Prime 47 should definitely be on your dinner list the next time you're in town.
Great place before the Symphony
Prime 47 is just 1 1/2 blocks from the garage entrance of the Indianapolis Symphony. Just a short walk for a great meal. Also, one perk we didn't know about previously. We usually have leftovers (Especially our lobster mac & cheese) from our dinners. Just ask your waiter and they will box the leftovers, put your name on your bag and put it into their cooler to be picked up after your event. Thank you for a great meal and leftovers the next day.
We dined at Prime 47 in celebration of my wife's birthday. We found the food to very good, and the service to be outstanding. Our waiter was very attentive, but never hovering.
If you haven't been yet, its worth a visit if only for the Lobster Mac & Cheese.
Great place for dinner before a Pacers Game!
We have been going here over the past 4 seasons as a ritual before Pacers games - if you want to make tip off, just let them know and they will make sure you do - if not, relax and enjoy the service from teams of 2. Of course great steaks, but awesome scallop appetizer and both the tuna and Chilean sea bass main courses are great. A lot of energy in the restaurant, and with the valet parking, easy access to downtown.
Dinner & Pacer Game
Had reservations at 5:30 and were sat promptly at 5:30. Scott and Damien waited on our table and were great! We would ask for them by name when visiting again. The food was perfect and in large portions. I recommend the Chilean Sea Bass or the Scottish Salmon. Both were incredible! The Jalapeno Au gratin Potatoes were prepared perfectly and the Cream Spinach couldn't have been better! I would highly recommend Prime 47 to anyone. It is on the pricey side, but I don't put a price on a good time, good food and good service! Thanks Scott and Damien! My son and I had a great time!
Celebrate Victory or Take Your Mind Off a Loss
The old "Mo's Place for Steaks" across from Banker's Life is now Prime 47 but only the name has changed. Good food & service, energetic, and high prices that are ~ equal to other similar places. Combo of steak & sashimi was surprisingly good.
