-Aside from the outdated decor, the food was good.

-The service was good, but not remarkable.

-I have to admit, I find it funny when the servers cannot pronounce dishes they are serving

-Pretty darn good wine list

-Views of downtown are nice, provides enough ambience to ignore the decor

-This is a tourist-spot, so expect some amateurs

-There are better places to get a steak in Downtown Indianapolis

-For the price-point, you could definitely do better (in my opinion)

The staff was welcoming and our server (Jared) was attentive and had a nice sense of humor. Since we were a bigger table, there was variety in what we ordered and everyone was quite happy with the quality of their meals. The prime rib was excellent!
The view of the city is really beautiful. We timed our visit so we'd see the sunset (something mentioned in reviews I read) and we were glad we did. Our group dined on a week night, which was great because there was less of a crowd, allowing us more freedom to take photos and enjoy the landscape. All in all, we had a fabulous evening!

Great views of the city. The food was very good, we had the surf and turf special. It's very pricey so we won't be making it a regular stop. But nice for a special occasion. The decor needs some updating, but most the time you're looking out the windows anyway. The service was attentive (good thing the waiter had plenty of help) but the waiter seemed to care less about our special occasion.
In a city full of choices for fine dining I was expecting exceptional service at this price point. Something to make me want to take the elevator ride up to the 22nd floor again. But overall, the food was delicious and service was satisfactory.

We arrived a bit early for our reservation at The Eagle's Nest. It was our fist visit. We were seated promptly. What a stunning view while you eat! Every one of the staff was very friendly. The food was excellent. If you want to make one complete evolution, plan on at least 1.5 hours, it is well worth it. Big thanks to Erika, Renee and Eve for the wonderful evening! We will certainly visit here again.

Our evening did not start off well. We arrived on time for our 6:30 reservation but they were not ready. So we sat in the lounge for 25 minutes. They did give my husband a free glass of wine. The menu was very small and expensive but the service was good and our food was great.
