    Festiva’s reviews have been superlative!

    “Decorated like a fantastic backyard party, with sunny splashes of yellow and blue and a pass-through bar that opens onto an enclosed all-seasons patio, Festiva adds a pop of color and energy to its little patch of East 16th Street.” Indianapolis Monthly declared Festiva one of the Top 10 restaurants in the city!

    Indy Star’s Liz Biro wrote about her first bites at Festiva:
    “Small, affordable menus make this neighborhood spot worth visiting a few nights a week… the most balanced mezcal cocktail I’ve sampled.”

    Nuvo wrote about Festiva’s roots in their glowing article:
    “… Festiva has the opportunity to set itself apart in the neighborhood with its three-way alcohol license (beer, wine and liquor). The bar program is looking to match the quality of the food program with Jason Foust (from North End BBQ & Moonshine) as the Beverage Director.”

    MSN crowned Festiva “the best Mexican restaurant in the state” in their superlative article featuring the best Mexican eateries across the U.S.A.
