This was an awesome experience. Great service and even greater food. The selection is amazing. Business dinner of 12 so we ordered a bunch of apps. They were all amazing. The sides and main courses were equally fantastic. You must have the maygu beef. It is amazing. Service was superior.

I was disappointed with the actual quality of the meal. Reading reviews had me hyped up to have a better quality meal then I experienced. The delmonico steak had very little flavor. The lobster mac & cheese was a big disappointment. The lobster in the seafood starter was tough and did not taste very fresh. Service was good.

We ate brunch there before Colts game. Very friendly hostess and waiter. Food was good but not great! Will probably not return for the brunch... Maybe will try dinner.

Beautiful space , great for people watching and still an amazing piano player! We ordered too much food for just the two of us and that would of been nice to be told that the appetizers and sides feed four or more not two...see pictures. Calamari and rock shrimp appetizer amazing, just too much! They need to offer 1/2 sizes.... More

Located downtown next to Banker's Life Fieldhouse, Prime 47 offers fine dining in the former Indiana Gas Company's building. Soaring windows and an ornate interior provides a resplendent dining experience. Everyone in our party of six ordered either a filet or ribeye and found them to be perfectly prepared to order. Service was swift but unobtrusive. Live piano music discouraged... More

This Restaurant definitely wants you to feel you are getting high end treatment. By Reputation it has great steaks, fish, and crab cakes. As a vegetarian they are were very accommodating and had yummy options. They give detail to taste with all plates. So, this is not the steak house that has amazing steaks but busts on their other dishes.... More

Had a private lunch at this location. Menu was pre selected and served family style but was delicious. Especially the chicken parm and the grilled asparagus. Dessert was served on a platter with an array of sinful delicious treats! The people that attended the event stated that especially because it was held at this well known favorite place, it enticed... More

I was part of a group that went to this restaurant after attending the IPT Sales Tax Symposium. This was definitely a fine dining experience. The food was cooked to perfection and very tasty. I have to admit being somewhat surprised when I noticed an seafood appetizer costing $112.00 (I believe that it contained shrimp, scallops and 14 oz lobster).... More

I attended a business meeting on 9/13 and ordered the Delmonico steak. It was a USDA prime cut and it was perfectly prepared. I started with the heirloom tomato and mozzarella salad. The tomatoes were tasty and fresh. The sides are Huge and meant to share. Service was excellent. A great meal!

Prime 47...Indy's Steakhouse is Indianapolis's only locally owned & operated Prime Steakhouse. In addition to our wonderful steaks we offer a variety a fresh seafood and an extensive wine list. What really sets Prime 47 apart from other Indy steakhouses is our staff. Our servers work in teams of two to ensure that every guests has the Prime Experience. Set in the Majestic Building, Prime 47...Indy's Steakhouse is a site to behold. Built in 1895 for the Indiana Gas Company, this unique building has a lot to offer. From its original tile floors, marble columns and 18-foot windows to view Pennsylvania and Maryland Streets, the atmosphere starts from the ground up. Prime 47 is one of the few downtown Indianapolis steakhouses that features live music nightly.
