Skyline Club Ratings and Reviews
This was my first time going to Skyline, and I loved it! My boyfriend was really impressed with the surprise Valentine's Day dinner. We had a 3 course meal with a wonderful dessert to end the night. The view over the city was impeccable! I'd left my phone in the car, and the hostess was kind enough to take our picture and send it to me. From the ambiance, the meal, to the service it was a wonderful experience.
I had read a couple bad reviews prior to going but ignored them to my peril. DO NOT DINE HERE. There are many reasons. I'll list a few which make the point. Service was horrible. Our waiter would disappear for 15+ minutes every time we asked for something. They got our order wrong (salad dressing not on the side, etc.), charged us $25 to split an entree, brought coffee when we didn't order any, etc. I tried ordering from their wine list and twice they brought a newer vintage than was listed but insisted on charging the same price, explaining "that's all their distributor brought them." Obviously they have no sommelier. So I gave up on wine and ordered a bourbon (they offer 3 choices). The waiter told me they had large ice cubes but brought me a drink in crushed ice.
The prime rib was warm and gristled. The cheesecake we ordered had half melted when it was served. The check, however, was the last straw. First, they charged tax on the $25 split plate fee (pretty sure you can only tax food & beverage, not fees or services). Then they automatically added a 20% tip to the TAXED total rather than the food+beverage total. That means they added tip to both the split plate fee and the tax! Very uncool. We spent $120 for one entree and two drinks. Had we successfully ordered a bottle of wine our tab would have been $230. Management was totally unmoved by the whole situation and offered no solution. Bottom line - this is a restaurant with expensive parking, dated decor, horrible service, below average food, and unethical management. On the positive side I can tell you the piano player was excellent and the view was great. DO NOT DINE HERE.
The Skyline Club is a beautiful place, very up to date decor. And being on the 36th floor, the view is one of the best in Indianapolis. We were seated promptly and service was excellent all night. The menu was a Valentines Day 4 course with options for each course. My wife and I selected different options for all but the soup as opener. Everything was excellently prepared and presented; temperature was perfect. Wine was also very good as was the coffee and desert to finish off the evening. Overall the evening was excellent. I would highly recommend the Skyline Club.
The Atmosphere and sceneries are outstanding. Food options can be bigger and better, feel as if the selection is somewhat limited. Service is excellent, especially during the lunch busy hours. Food quality was mediocre, and food constantly ran out and emptied, let alone not that many choices to pick from in the first place.
The food was excellent and the view was spectacular. We were seated by a person who, I believe, ended her shift. We got no water, no menus. It was several minutes before someone offered drinks to us. Our drinks came - still no menus. Finally another server came over and asked if there was something he could do for us as we were looking around . . . finally got the menus! The service after that point was pretty good. Everything was cooked properly and came in good time.
Overall was great! I ordered lamb that was not prepared well done but was prepared medium but I was so hungry I ate it anyway. My boyfriend ordered the burger. This isn't a dining experience that has great burger but the view of all worth it. We went on a night that had live music which was great!!!
Ordered a bottle of Champagne for four and we did not have the proper glasses on the table. Server finally brought Champagne glasses but they all weren’t the same size. The Champagne was not properly chilled. We had to ask for an ice bucket. It took an hour from the time we were seated to get our appetizers and that is even after asking the status. The next course came and three out of three soaps were barely warm. We had to have one of them reheated. The final courses arrived and they were okay at best. All in all not a great experience or value when considering the bill was over $400. Had the same New Year’s Eve dinner here for two couples about three years ago and it everything was excellent. We will not return here for dinner.
The food was delicious and the ambience cannot be beat. It's a beautiful location and the service was excellent. Drinks were a bit pricey but they were very good. Portions were decent and filling. A bit difficult to find but people were helpful in guiding.
I did get and call initially asking me to switch my reservation time, which was strange. I said no and wasn't pressed further, however, and got to keep my initial time.
Beautiful view of Indianapolis from the heights sets the tone. Our table was ready when we arrived. Our server was perfect, very polite and offered his suggestions which were on the spot. Wine list is not very big offers a bit of everything for all tastes and pockets. I was truly impressed with the food. Oysters in Indianapolis ? Perfect ! Beet salad, simple and delicious. Lamb chops perfectly done. Carrot cake to finish. I will return !
I frequent Skyline Club several times a year and maybe it's time I stop. We were pleasantly surprised to see there were only 4 tables seated, however it took 15-20 minutes to receive a greeting from our server, Eric, and water. Once we placed and received our cocktails, one would've thought I ordered the martini on the rocks due to the ice chunks in it. In addition to the wait and martini on the rocks, the steak was great (despite receiving the bleu cheese fondu on the side instead of on the steak as ordered) the potatoes and swordfish were awful. I've never had fish so dry and tasteless. If these things were bad enough, after transferring monies to my daughter's account, I found out Skyline Club charged me an additional $208, which is still missing from my account 5 days later! I have called AND emailed, but have not received a response from anyone. The only consideration given from Eric was in the form of a comment, "Was that inconvenient," really??
Firstly, the building is under renovation and we had to walk all the way around the building which sits on a city block to get into the place because 3 of the 4 entrances are shut at 6pm. We were seated and order was taken. Forty minutes later when our appetizers were brought to the table, I asked for the bread which everyone else had at their table. Our waitress had forgotten. Five minutes after out appetizers came out our entrée came out and we had barely started the appetizer. We waited a long time for our bill and asked for dessert to go. The waitress dropped my to go box on the floor and then we had to wait for them to go get me another one. I was very pleased with my food...just not the service at all as they added an automatic 20% to our bill. Which I was told by the manager was company policy even for a group of 2.
I took my mother during Devour Downtown Indianapolis Restaurant Week. It was the first time we had eaten here. Our waiter made great recommendations and provided very good service. We had a 6:30 p.m. dinner so we were able to see the evening lights begin to twinkle below us before we left. The decor was colorful and fun, and the view was spectacular. It is a must-do because of their special pricing during Devour Week.
We went for the lunch buffet during Devour Downtown. The restaurant and view of monument circle were amazing. Nice soft music playing made it easy to talk to friends. The food selection and quality were outstanding! The shrimp alone were worth the $15 special price. My palate was so happy I could have cried tears of joy! Our waitress was also extremely friendly. Hoping to go back some evening for the view.
What a rip off. Buyers beware. There is a service fee that they add on to the price - our case $53 dollars. Waiter played it off as not his tip. So we tipped additional. Next day looked at the voucher - says no need to tip Service this time was also slow. Salad to dinner a major delay. We have bought this before and enjoyed it very much. NO SO this time. What a shame for you to ruin a enjoyable event that we liked. Oh, as soon as we made entrance to dinning area, manager took voucher, now we know why.
The décor and ambiance are this restaurant's only positive attributes, but even this it failed to use to its advantage. We recently had Mother's Day brunch here. We requested a table near the windows to enjoy the view but we were told these tables are reserved for members of the club. To our surprise most of these tables remained empty our entire time there.
The food was at best mediocre and the service was amateurish and rushed which made this a very poor choice for a special event like our Mother's 93d birthday.
It only had four tables with guests. Most tables had elderly guests. The television was on to a sports program. The blinds were closed so the view seemed to be lost on us! The food was fine but overpriced. The room was hot from the sun beating in, which was probably why the blinds were drawn. The service was excellent.
My husband, son, and I went to dinner expecting great food and service. We were sadly mistaken. My husband had the worst steak of his life and my Mahi mahi was tasteless.
The server did not know the menu and had to refer to another several times. If your main dish is steak I would expect you to know what kind of steak you are serving.
We will never be back and I will make sure I pass along our horrible experience!
The most exquisite dining experience I have had the pleasure to experience. The service was friendly and I was never left wanting. The food was utterly delightful; the scallops were particularly good. On top of it all the view was unbeatable. Overall a lovely way to spend Valentines Day; I would do it again in a heartbeat.
