Incredibly Over Priced. I'm a life long resident of Indy and I've been there twice in about 20 years. Rotating view is all that could possibly recommend this restaurant. Food is sub-par at best. Price is way out of line for the level of quality of both the wait staff and food. But if you really must eat in a spinning dining room and you've got money to throw away, be my guest.
Ambiance notwithstanding, the food is simply not good.
Ambiance notwithstanding, the food (appetizers, soups to main course) was 'below' average and as high priced as I would pay for high end, flavorful food in restaurants in Chicago or San Francisco. As food is very important to me, the quality simply muted the towering view of the city. Perhaps it is just a place to go for drinks?
1 I paid $11 for the Roast Beet Salad for my wife and I to share. We were given a small plate with about 4 pieces of lettuce with tiny cube cuts of beet perhaps equaling 1/2 slice of a beet. We actually asked is this just 1/2 the salad, which would still be small compared to Cheese Cake Factory or any of a number of restaurants like Maggiano's or BoneFish. Regardless I expected it to be good, but it also was NOT with either the lettuce or beets being somewhat grainy.
2. Steak with pesto sauce was bland which was very disappointing
3. Dessert menu is NOT provided. So I expected a great description of the part of dinner I sweetly anticipate. Waitress described the desserts but nothing really interested us so we were going actually to pass. But the waitress then asked would be like to split a cheesecake. I asked what type is it, she said plain but I could throw in some berries??? After the average food, we decided to pass on the cheesecake with added berries.
As this was a romantic getaway for my wife and me, I clearly was disappointed at spending > $150 when I could have enjoyed superior food in a restaurant that was just as romantic with a great dessert. Eagle's Nest simply must update cuisine and infuse more flavor.
User review by lindsayny. My husband took me here for my birthday. It was a great place for a special occasion... extremely romantic. The rotating restaurant made for a 360 degree fantastic view. We just relaxed and enjoyed dinner while trying to locate local landmarks. The food was only mediocre compared to the price, however, you have to realize you are paying more for the height/view in downtown Indianapolis. Recommended to try at least once, even it is only to grab a drink at night in the lounge area (you have the same rotating view).
I took my girlfriend here to propose and I thought that the view was great. The restaurant is on the 23rd floor of the Hyate so you can really see alot. You always have a window seat so make sure that you go at night because the lights really set it off. I found the service to be prompt and curtious. Nice atmosphere overall in the restaurant. They had piano music playing and it fit well. The only thing wrong was the below average quality of food. For the price that they charge you would expect fine cuisine, but this is not the case. But I guess your paying for the view not the food.
By the way,

Indiana's only revolving restaurant offers a grand 360-degree downtown view and artfully presented dishes..
Business travelers, corporate types and couples out for a quiet, romantic night patronize this upscale restaurant above the 21st floor of the downtown Hyatt. Low lighting, candles at each table and a ceiling painted to resemble a night sky enhance the mood. Service is attentive and refined.
Dishes are fresh and impressively presented. The field green salad comes wrapped in a long cucumber slice; the Indiana duck breast looks like a modified clock face with six slices as the numbers, rice in the middle and asparagus as the hands; and a round chocolate-covered cheesecake, with a small piece removed, resembles a Pac-Man. Taste does not always live up to presentation. The raspberry sauce that tops the duck breast adds little to the taste. A lobster bisque is thin with minimal bits of lobster; butter gives the lobster tail its only flavor. Filet mignon, while exceptionally tender, lacks seasoning.
MY EXPERIENCE AT EAGLES NEST.
I GOT MARRIED IN 1999 AND INDIANAPOLIS IS WHERE MY HUSBAND AND I HAD OUR HONEYMOON. EAGLES NEST WAS WONDERFUL TO US AND IT WAS THE MOST ROMANTIC ENVIROMENT I HAVE EVER EXPERIENCED I AM NOW 26 YEARS OLD AND MY HUSBAND HAS PASSED AWAY, BUT EAGLES NEST WILL ALWAYS HAVE A WONDERFULL PLACE IN MY HEART...
THANK YOU FOR YOUR WONDERFULL STAFF AND RESTAURANT...
ROMANTIC EVENING. I took my husband here for his birthday. The atomosphere was wonderful and the view was so romantic. The food and the service was excellent. Need a Romantic Evening this is the place to start.
1. I have eaten at many places around the world and tasted many different types of food and this place is the worst I have had better frozen dinners...
amoung worst. Worst service and food for the money in Indy bar none!
good view, bad food. I went with my girlfriend on our anniversary. The place has a good view. It is cool that it rotates. But the food was very subpar. We both ordered steaks. My dish was ok, but my girlfriend's dish was cold. We asked the waittress to warm it up. She acted as though there was nothing wrong. The dish was still cold when she brought it back. I was disappointed with the overall experience.
