The Propylaeum is for those with refined taste. The word refined is associated with the upper class showing specifically; good manners and good society. It has old world charm with given historical facts of the Indianapolis area and It's architectural background as it grew from a small town into the thriving city it is now and the etiquette information given thru-out the evening is very informative. I attended the 8 course wine pairing; those interested in learning more about the origin, taste and background on wines will love it. I have attended other wine tastings and this was the most information filled thus far, I absolutely loved it. The menu is for those with eclectic taste; each dish was its own little work of art; not unlike those served at refined, high-society parties that few of us are invited to. The Propylaeum gives us the opportunity to step into the shoes of the upper class, to eat and mingle as they once did before our modern times and I loved it. I just hope they will soon hold dinners featuring organic, sulfate free wines!

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.

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 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.

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.

What a joke! We bought a groupon for our family and were disappointed from the moment we stepped in the place until we left. The hostess was loud, long-winded, and begged over and over for us to vote for her to win a monetary contest online (very annoying). The house smelled (I know it's old, but it made it difficult to eat). The food was disgusting (maybe that's what made it difficult to eat). The salad was a few pieces of lettuce, a dab a salad dressing, and three croutons. The entire dinner was cold...it consisted of rubbery chicken, hard spaghetti, and slimy green beans. We could barely choke it down and left most of it on our plates. Dessert was a rock hard biscuit with a few strawberries (their version of strawberry shortcake I guess). My husband and I were never given the wine we were supposed to receive. After "dinner" the server brought a bill. I was stunned since I assumed I had already paid for everything when I purchased my groupon. She said that the fine print said that we owed tax. The tax seemed a bit high and since my groupon was taken at the door, but couldn't prove her wrong. When I got home I looked at the fine print and I saw nothing about tax. A scam? I don't know. The magic show was mediocre. The Amazing Barry made us laugh. Overall, we should have saved our $89 ($100 after tax) and had a quiet night at home.
