The Loft at Traders Point Ratings and Reviews

Dee was the most amazing server I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. She was extremely knowledgeable about the menu as well as passionate about the dishes, as well as the overall brand of The Loft. She, the restaurant, and my meal were absolute perfection.

The loft restaurant is a great place for a business lunch. The food and service are very good and the location and ambiance are so unique it's an excellent alternative to the mundane, day to day work lunch experience.

We had the meat & cheese plate, the winter seasonal 3-course prix fixe menu (we ordered the brussels salad, bison shorts ribs, pheasant, desserts), and the chef's beverage pairings. All were fabulous. Pricing is moderate/expensive, but worth the experience. Surprised my husband for his birthday dinner. He loved the rustic farmhouse atmosphere and locally sourced menu. New favorite place.

This was our first time dining here. My husband and I met my parents here for Sunday brunch. We arrived on time at 10am and there were maybe five other tables in the whole restaurant - not busy at all. We were seated, given menus and waters, and waited for over 20 minutes on a server to stop by. Other servers were attending the other two tables near us and none of them noticed we had not been seen yet. My mom had to get up and let the hostess know we had not seen a server yet. Within a few minutes a server finally stopped by our table and apologized... blamed it on having a large party inside (we were on the closed in patio). However, once she began to wait on us, she was friendly and attentive. Our food was just ok... definitely not as good as other brunch options in Indy. It seemed very overpriced for the quality of the food. I had the yogurt, granola, and fruit and the granola had an almost chemical taste to it. I also had a side order of housemade sausage. The flavor was good, but it was too tough to cut with just a fork. It was almost rubbery. I also ordered the "fresh squeezed" orange juice, which was very overpriced at $3.50 a glass and served in a tiny little juice glass. It also did not taste fresh squeezed. It tasted almost fake orange flavored.
All in all, I will not be returning to this restaurant in the future. The atmosphere is nice and it seems like there is a lot of potential for it to be great, but it fell WAY, WAY short.

The Loft team serves very fine organically cultivated ingredients in exceptional preparations. While the entire menu is terrific, the scallops are particularly noteworthy because they are the best prepared in the Indianapolis area, despite the Loft being known more for "turf" than "surf" dishes.

My only complaint is that we were sat on the porch- which was winterized, however, it was about 7 degrees outside that night and their space heater/lamp wasn't working so my boyfriend and I got quite cold during the meal.

As always, great food, great service! It's our "go to" place for any special occasion and casual dining! Kudos to our server, Sabrina---she was just fantastic! If you've never eaten here, then you're missing out on a special dining opportunity!

I came to the Loft with a friend from Virginia. The whole concept of the restaurant was wonderful. My friend enjoyed it very much. Our server made us feel very comfortable. The food was exquisite with wonderful portions.

The restaurant was very cramped with many tables too close together. It was awkward to walk between the tables.
Most notably, we were restricted to the pricey, restricted New Year's Eve menu. We decided the ambiance was with the cost. It definitely was not. :(
We were seated in the add-on porch. Zero ambiance there for the price & drive. Got to enjoy sitting in plastic chairs, staring at duct work & gazing at reflective storm windows.
To be honest, mostly embarrassed and disappointed on behalf of the guests we invited & convinced to join us. Had we know the environment our group was to be seated in, we never would have come.
Service was fair. Owner was extremely friendly & approachable. Food was good quality. But restricted menu selections were disappointing-especially for the price.
Will we return? By ourselves, yes. But only if we're assured a spot in the main dining room and have selection from full menu. I do not think our friends will be returning. The porch addition seating was most offensive, in consideration of the celebratory night.

My dining companions and I made our visit to The Loft Restaurant for the special New Year's Eve Champagne Dinner. It was a first visit for all three of us, although I have been wanting for several years to visit Traders Point Creamery and its Loft Restaurant. We sat in The Roost (the private dining venue for private parties that was opened for New Year's Eve dining), overlooking The Loft. "Authentic" is probably the best word to describe the experience. It was like going to the farm for a 5-Star dinner! The service, the food and the ambiance were perfect for celebrating old friendships while welcoming the hope and promise of a New Year. As we departed and stepped into the crisp evening air, the sky was clear. Our walk to the car was guided by star light. I can only guess that the available tables were due to it being New Years Ave and the somewhat remote location. However, it is well-worth the journey. It sure beats the hassle and hustle of the city, yet conveniently located a few miles west of West 86th and Michigan Road and perhaps a mile from the I-465 / West 86th Street interchange. Unlike the upscale "chain" restaurants, which are adequate and predictable, this experience left me feeling good about the Earth, our food, and life! I will return soon, and often, regretting only that I waited so long to make my first visit.

We usually enjoy the Loft. This time the food came out cold and about an hour after ordering. I believe it sat for a while. Management blamed it on a large party in front of us. The most frustrating aspect was they did not take ownership. It was blamed on the kitchen, who can not defend themselves. They comped a appetizer, which was a nice gesture. We did not go there for the appetizer though. For the price the dinner was ruined. We will not be returning.

After a long wait, our meal missed the mark. Food was very high quality and the cuisine was very creative but portions were small for the price - much more like portion sizes in Europe or Australia. Service was very, very good. And some elements of the meal were excellent such as the arugula salad and the chicken and dumplings. Dessert and main courses were less so especially at the price point of the main course.
That said, I do have friends from Europe who would enjoy the restaurant and will be prepared at our next visit.

We both had the Ploughman's Lunch that comes with a cup of soup, a piece of cheese, three slices of meat stick, 6 slices of pickled items and 4 slices of bread. It also came with spoonfuls of seeded mustard, fig jam, and honey comb. It was very tasty but a bit over priced for what you receive. I will go again because we love to support local eateries, but I won't make this selection again. The sandwiches and salads are much more worth the money. We topped our meal off with some hot chocolate (The BEST around!).

Our waiter was very slow. He was attentive when he showed up but he took about 15 minutes to take our drink order and I expected to be in and out in about 1.5 hours. It took over 2 hours to get everything and get out. The wine we had was standard, nothing exciting. The craft beer my son had was good. The cheese board was outstanding (but not enough bread served with it to be able to eat all that was on the board)! Meals were so - so. We had a Vegan with us and our waiter didn't seem to be able to grasp the difference between a Vegetarian and a Vegan even after multiple attempts to describe the difference. He kept pointing to the V on the menu for our guest to choose from. Desserts were so-so. I expected Red Velvet cake to be warm (or at least room temperature), and it was served cold as if it had just come from a refrigerator. The shakes the kids (over > 25 years of age) were great. They loved them.

This was actually the first time we've sat inside, all the other times we've been here we've been enjoying the outside environment. But sitting inside was also nice.
We tried a new starter for us, the melted cheese which was indeed delish, as told to us by the waiter. Our dinner was good too. My husband went for the pork duo which was nice but meat too fatty, ended up taking a big chunk of "meat" away because of that.
I had the scallops which was really nice.
Only negative feedback this time was the lack of telling us that an item on the menu was sold out. I personally think this is info which is best given when being handed the menu initially, not once you've browsed through the menu, and in this case decided for exactly that item (of course) which they no longer have.

This is our 4th year to go to the Loft to celebrate Christmas with our family ! Each year is a little worse than the last > We keep going because our son & daughter-in-law want to go there ! They wanted to make it our "Christmas Tradition" After this year I do not think we are going to be able to continue this tradition ! We had 4 adults a 3 yr old & a baby in our party ! It took over 2 hours for us to complete our meal the service was extremely slow & un attentive > The restaurant wasn't even that busy while we were there . I guess the waitress figured she didn't have to work too hard since she was automatically going to get a 20 % tip no matter what she did or did not do ! I ordered the chicken & dumplings, it was a very small portion, that was just as well , because they were just plain gross overly salty & even the broth was gross, I thought I was going to get sick trying to eat it ! My husband got the roasted chicken , the chicken was tough & not done, our son got the roasted chicken as well , he didn't finish his meal either , our daughter-in- law got the steak she said it was good , our granddaughter got the kids mac n cheese & we got 2 cream brule which was very good, a sundae & 2 dishes of ice cream , which our 3 year old had to wait until last to get 1 scoop of banana ice cream , I mean really how long does it take to scoop ice cream we all drank water except for 1 glass of tea, our bill was $252 for the most part for food that was not remotely worth the cost , flavor or portion wise & for less than mediocre service ! I am very disappointed in this overall experience !!!

The Loft is one of the finest restaurants in Indiana. I frequently dine for business in downtown Indianapolis' restaurants, and the Loft exceeds all of them. The nearest rival dinner restaurants are in Chicago and Roanoke (Indiana).

We enjoyed a wonderful lunch with friends for the Christmas Holiday. Our Server was attentive and friendly and made good recommendations. Our food was delicious! I look forward to another good time and food at Traders Point Creamery!

The quality of food and service has decreased from the last time I visited. It was good, just not spectacular. Its extremely drafty especially on the porch and I would suggest taking sweaters during the winter. The 1st table they gave us was sold as being quiet. It was cold and dark and cramped in a corner. They did move us after I requested a change.

We had an amazing experience, truly amazing. The place is uuuge and the staff were nice, really nice people.
Jokes aside, you can't go wrong with going to this farm for a meal or any events they organize. We love it there!
