Skyline Club Ratings and Reviews
For only having about 5 main entrees on the menu, we thought they would be virtually perfected, but we were highly disappointed. The starter salads were great, but that was about it. The view was pretty nice, at least we can say we've been, I suppose. We won't be returning.
Once they were ready for brunch to start, it was wonderful. The raw bar had no utensils, cocktail sauce or soy initially available but once that was pointed it to the staff, they quickly rectified it. Good was outstanding and service was attentive. We always enjoy this for Mother's Day.
I was a bit leery, given the love/hate reviews I read on Open Table and Yelp. So I'm pleased to report that our server, John, was terrific -- and the food, on the whole, was just as terrific. In particular, the BLT salad was as delicious as it was ample, with lots of blue cheese, bacon and tomatoes. The flatbread appetizer also offered a tasty melange of flavors, chiefly that of blue cheese (again) and tender char-grilled beef. The tomato sauce base, however, didn't add much -- and certainly wouldn't be missed. The grilled lamb chops were the highlight of my meal; perfectly cooked (medium rare), and served with gently cooked asparagus spears and an au gratin potato cake with a wonderfully crispy exterior. The jambalaya/pasta entree was flavorful, though not memorable enough to warrant ordering again next time. And of course the VIEW is certainly the best in the city -- and it only gets better as the sun sets and the city lights take over. I only rated the sound level because it was required. In truth, there was a wedding reception in progress on the evening we were there, so the noise level was a bit too loud at times. But we were warned of that before we were seated, and given the opportunity to take a table further from the festivities but with a view that was less impressive. We opted for the view and didn't regret it -- especially when the father of the bride invited us to join the party!
Food was delicious. Great Birdseye view of the city. It was noisy because there was a wedding reception behind the divider. Music was loud. If you're going to dine there in a weekend, ask I'd ask if there is a wedding and if you'll be able to hear their music at your seat. Otherwise - it was s great dining experience.
We went here for the view. Everything else was gravy.
Service was very friendly. Upon arrival we were greeted with a smile and brought to a small corner room with a fantastic view. A personalized name card was on our table which we found to be a nice detail. There was only one other table occupied so conversation with my table mate was easy.
Our server greeted us immediately and was very attentive (but not too attentive) and friendly the entire meal. We started with a BLT wedge that was very fresh and tasty. The entrees were somewhat of a letdown. My Jambalaya, while fresh tasting, was bland. My Wife's burger was ordered medium but cooked well done. The waitress did ask us how our food was but we didn't want to make an issue so we didn't complain. For dessert, we had Bananas Foster that was prepared table side- a nice touch. It was also very, very delicious.
We would probably return but honestly not because of the food. The view is what makes this place special.
It was Easter and they were extremely disorganized with their reservations. They did make it right by comping parking and kid meals. Even with that we did not feel like the cost was equal to the value. The scenic view is ok and, again, not worth the value.
We were there for Easter Brunch. The food was good and there was a nice selection. However, they kept running out of bread. Every time we went back to buffet line they were out. My brother in law finally got a roll when we were ready to leave. Also, even though the price per meal was $51.00, that didn't include coffee or tea. For two adults and one child, one cup of coffee, one glass of ice tea and a glass of milk, the total was $177.00. For that price I would have expected crab or lobster!
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.
Service excellent. Food mostly excellent. The only downside was a limited menu and the beef tenderloin was not great. A little tough for tenderloin actually. The scallops were incredible. The lobster bisque awesome. The desserts were incredible.
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!!!
