I recently went there and loved the food although a little pricey. However, the place was so noisy that it was like trying to eat in the midst of a middle school gym class. I will NOT return to that din of noise.

I went in to this place a few weeks ago for a weekday lunch with a decent sized group.

horrible horrible experience.

bad service, long delay for food-nearly an hour.

ran out of diet coke.

no refills on bread while waiting for the hour.

french fries not fried at all-pasty white.

At least the food was free after complaints.

Would never go back.

How was the noise.......everyone I know that has been there swears that they will not go back because their ears aren't normal for several hours.

Sounds like, if the noise is the problem, I'll continue to go to a local favorite, Acapulco Joes, rather than this St. Louis based chain.
nice

We loved it! Restaurants are too boring in Indy, this one is festive. Great food. Tapas isn't supposed to be fast. Lunch is loud anywhere, it sounds like success is their biggest problem.

no, their major roadblock is the unbelievable noise.

We had the exact same experience. Except our waiter was an unbelievable jerk too. Didn't like that we wanted separate checks and actually flipped the bills in that little book thing at us in kind of a pissy manner.
