I was staying by myself at the Renaissance Hotel north of Indianapolis, and went to this restaurant for convenience.
They had a wonderful menu, including some local fair, and pretty much would have eaten anything on the menu. I thought the decor was very nice as well.
I had crab corn chowder for an appetizer. It came out very hot, and very quickly. The texture/consistency didn’t look that great, but boy it was yummy. It just did not have a smooth appearance but was delicious. They put a generous portion of lump crabmeat in the center of the bowl of soup which I thought was a nice touch, so you can see what you are getting.
I had a chopped salad that was prepared in little quadrants. A very pretty preparation, the cucumbers, cabbage, etc. all separated on the plate. Chunky blue cheese dressing was also rich and delicious.
For dinner I had shrimp with bacon risotto. The shrimp was supposed to be spicy but really wasn’t. The risotto was, and nicely so. Shrimp were large and generous, I think six of them. More than you get at many restaurants. The risotto was also delicious. Had fried onions mixed in. Delicious.
The only reason I didn’t give a five rating, was that the food came out faster than I could eat it, so I felt a rushed.
I suppose when one writes a review one would complain more about food taking a long time to come out. At this place, the food came out faster than I would have liked. Almost felt like my nice waitress was trying to move dinner along far too quickly, and I never told her I was in a hurry!
I was never even offered dessert, so don’t know if they have any dessert on the menu. Instead I just got the bill! (Would have been too full to eat more though!)
As for price, usually hotel restaurants are very very expensive. This place was not cheap, but for the quality I thought was a very nice meal at a very decent price.
Definitely would come back if I stayed here. Would love to try a bunch of other dinner items.
