We recently had a family wedding there and to say the least there were numerous issues. The owner is downright rude and she blotched up more things than I can count - the champagne for toasting was the wrong kind, all the guests were supposed to be served iced tea or sparkling cider and only half were offered the cider, she wasn't going to offer a nonalcoholic drink for toasting until it was insisted upon, the dinner was supposed to have 4-5 pieces of asparagus and I only saw 1-2 pieces on several plates, the seating was messed up for dinner as close family members were seated in the back and not near the bride and groom as the owner was clearly instructed to do, the flowers were awful - which she boasted would be so wonderful, and the list could go on. My husband and I had planned on going to one of the mystery dinners but after the way she took care of the wedding for our niece's special day there is NO way I would ever go back. The fact that she was hateful and snapped at a 3 year old flower girl to "STOP", as they were lining up was where I drew the line... rude and very unprofessional!!! I wouldn't recommend this place to my worst enemy.

My husband and I recently got married at the Propylaeum. There isn't a better deal in indianapolis. The place is absolutely stunning, and unlike anything any caterer could offer. Included in the fantastic price for both rooms, was tables, chairs and linens, and all the flowers including my bouquet and boutineers for family. Karin Glass, the coordinator/hostess was generous with her time and available when I needed her. I hardley had to lift a finger. With the stress of planing a wedding, that was a huge plus. With some history given during dinner, you can tell she takes great pride in the building and in Indianapolis itself. The food was superb and portions generous. We had a great field green salad, kabobs of very tender chicken, beef and veggies and superb sides... better food than I've had at most weddings. A big shoutout to the staff. They were warm and personable and made the day feel that much more special. I highly recommend checking it out for you next event.

I have asked Groupon personally to quit issuing deals for these people. After my awful experience, it pains me that unsuspecting people ACTUALLY believe they are receiving a quality meal/experience. There is a reason this place has a number of horrible reviews; don't pay $40+ and find out yourself.

My partner Jason and I went there yesterday for lunch and we both were in awe the whole time .The scones were good and the turkey bacon panini was of the charts.The Chocolate cake was very rich.This is a very awesome place to go to ,but I'm still in high school and we did a proper addicate dinner and I learned all about the spoons ,forks and knives. I would say this place would be good for people who know proper addicate not recommened to those who are just going out on a random dinner.Take a class first!

I went for a murder mystery dinner. The whole experience was pretty crappy. As someone else already stated, they pack 10 tables of 8 into a room barely big enough to hold that many tables. The room is so loud you can't hear the person next to you and that's a big deal when everyone is trying to play a part in the mystery. That's my second problem: the mystery story was terrible. Almost every clue was a red herring. Not one clue cleverly eliminated anyone as a possible culprit. Once the mystery is solved, every clue should make sense and there should be only one possible killer but ANYONE could have been it in this story. Out of 10 tables, only 1 picked the correct murderer and if do the math you can see that they only got it because of the laws of probability. 8 players, 10 tables, 1 correct answer. The food wasn't bad but it was unremarkable. The key lime cake was awful though.

Went to a Mystery Dinner on a Friday evening. The mystery would have certainly been a lot of fun except that the place was so packed with people that I - and all at my table of 8 agreed - could not hear much of the clue/mystery package that was delivered by the moderator. If the Propylaeum wants to run mystery events, they should limit the seating to a moderate number. Too many people crammed into a small area makes for a cacophonous uproar that spoils the soup. Speaking of soup... ours was served cold - not lukewarm, but cold. It was probably cream of something like mushroom, but cold didn't tempt me to hunt further. The rest of the meal was equally cool, and I'll say that the pasta was pretty good, the salad was okay, and there was a nice warm raisin pudding for desert - very good. The main course was a generous serving of cold and sadly tasteless chicken. The place needs a better caterer. Service was by friendly waiters and waitresses, and I saw them not at all except when delivering the meal. (Bring your own drink refill...) Except for the noise and unsuccessful food, the evening was made memorable by what must have been a furnace failure. It was FREEZING and DRAFTY. Again everyone at our table commented on the cold breeze ( a middle of November evening). I guess that with such overcrowded conditions the management could only arrange 'too hot' and 'too cold' as options, and chose the brisker. All of this being said, I'd go back for another mystery if the evening was limited to perhaps 48 people at 6 tables, a different caterer was found, and probably a different price point for the experience.

We visited the Propylaeum for lunch on 6/21/2013 while in Indianapolis for a convention. The food was very good, and our server was friendly. The house is a beautiful setting for dining. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and will definitely return if we are in the Indianapolis area again.
