My team and I had a business dinner here at Bluebeards on Feb 21st, we were looking for a place with good food that we could also have a conversation. So many places have music or large crowds that it is hard to carry on a conversation. Well Bluebeards not only had excellent food but is a great place to... More

Bluebeard has an ever-changing menu and a great wine list. We shared an appetizer plate with two meats and a cheese chosen from a list of interesting options. We followed this with raw oysters (nice and fresh) and three small or medium plates to share: pan fried scallops (our favorite), a salmon tartar, and an undon beef soup. All good... More

We finally tried Bluebeard during the Devour Indy promotion, and we were quite pleased. The restaurant is a bit quirky, which is a nice break from the usual decor and food. It is a cozy little restaurant with a courtyard reminiscent of some of the restaurants in the French Quarter in New Orleans. The menu is quite creative, and it... More

Thanks for the nice review NanjingBob. I will pass along the information regarding the saltiness of the ramen dish. Please come visit again once the Magnolia is in bloom and take full advantage of our patio. More

I think Bluebeard is very over rated. The good is to complicated for me to enjoy. I really prefer simply seasoned with subtle combinations of flavors. Not here

We ordered to share between three of us. The Devour menu was still on and we got some small plates, finishing with a unique chocolate dessert. But the best part was at the end of the meal the waiter brought us a couple of loaves of bread that we ate as grilled cheese and toast for days after the meal.... More

We ventured up to Bluebeard's for our anniversary dinner. This being our first time, we weren't sure what to expect. Let's just say, our entire experience was wonderful. We sampled a variety of items-warm kale salad, grilled bread, olives, roasted cauliflower, Mexican Pizza & Charred octopus. Each dish had such unique flavors, including the olives which were served warm. My... More

We received a gift card to Bluebeard and was finally able to use it! We already can't wait to go back! The chopped salad was devine! My husband had the pork burger and I had the butternut squash! So delicious! The potato salad on the side was a pleasant surprise. We really enjoyed our meal and the staff was amazing!... More

This restaurant is tucked away in Indianapolis but it is for a good reason. The menu is original and delicious! If you want to try something you have never tried or in a way you have never tried it, Bluebeard is a must. Even the drink menu had a fusion of flavors I had never considered. If you are an... More

Heard much about this place and had to try it. Went for lunch on a Tuesday. Wasn't crowded and was able to get seated quickly. Decorations were quaint - looked like an old writer's library with antique typewriters on shelves along the wall - obviously paying tribute to Kurt Vonnegut. The server was very polite and kept our water glasses... More

Had a great meal for our daughters birthday. Loved the truffle egg toast. Shared the pork chop, ribeye, risotto and mussels. Also shared the bread pudding and chocolate dessert. Every bite was delicious. Wonderful server Jason. Great beer selection.
