    We went for our anniversary and the ambiance was wonderful. My husbands duck and risotto was done to perfection. I was less impressed with the pork loin as it was a large chunk of meat that was a little tough. However, the green Chili pineapple reduction was very tasty. The service was excellent. We will definitely return and recommend the Indigo Crow.

    Indigo Crow is such a perfect place for dinner. The ambiance is perfect and the kitchen never disappoints. Sadly though, for the first time we experienced something at Indigo Crow that we're seeing too much of at too many restaurants with table servers; they aren't at all considerate of or sensitive to their customers. We need a school to teach table servers how to not interrupt conversations, how not to say "no problem", how to pace their appearance at a table, how not to be overbearing, how to read signals like, "stay the heck away, we're having a special moment." Places like Indigo Crow deserve better, and so do their customers.

    The server was amazing and caring. The food is not exceeded in quality anwhere in Albuquerque. We were with a party of four and had the lobster ravioli, the rack of lamb, the pork loin and the red chili rubbed rib eye steak. All four were a hit. Appetizers included Brie wrapped in dough and mussels to die for!

    When we visit our friends in the Albuquerque area, we ALWAYS make time for a trip to Corrales and the Indigo Crow. Our favorite restaurant for patio dining and a glass or 2 of wine with our friends. The salads are fresh and flavorful. The Ahi Tuna entree is one of the best I have ever experienced.

    We were very pleased with Indigo Crow and will be back. We're in Albuquerque a few days each year and have had a little difficulty finding great food in a comfortable place. Indigo Crow solved that for us. There is ample comfortable seating on their patio and inside. The fresh ingredients, well prepared, many with a southwestern influence, make for an interesting menu. Indigo Crow is located a few miles from downtown Albuquerque in the woodsy residential village of Corrales near the Rio Grande.

    We've dined at the Indigo Crow many times and have always been delighted. This time we had a few minor issues. The bottle of champagne arrived unchilled. The soup arrived luke warm. The fondue appetizer was excellent, however, as were the entrees. We assume that this was just an off-night and plan to return.

    House wine choices were good. The entrees were over-priced for this area. You just couldn't order an entree without some unimaginative sauce that was sweet. So, each diner ordered the sauce that was made for his/her entree on the side. Good move! The entrees were bland. The fish was overcooked. The lamb chops were skimpy but properly cooked. It could have been worse because, when we finally tasted the sauces, they were way too sweet. Chef needs a new cookbook and a spice rack.

    The "Crow" is by far one of our favorites. The food is consistently great along with the service. We had dinner with our friends and sat at the bar inside, which is always interesting and fun. I had the halibut off the menu,my husband had the halibut special which added prawns, and our friends had steak and a salad covered with salmon. We all loved our meals and the preparation.

    I had the grilled romaine salad and it was great. Romaine was smokey and blue cheese dressing and bits were great. Best I have had. I also had to lamb with and unexpectedly wonderful blackberry sauce. It was memorable. The girls both had the pork chop with pineapple green chile sauce. They said the sauce was excellent but the pork chop was tough. They would have preferred it cooked a little less.

    It was my last day while visiting Albuquerque so I decided to make a Sunday brunch reservation based on the reviews. The service was great, I was promptly seated when I arrived and my server Jessica made some recommendations of her favorites from the menu. The food came out quickly and Jessica checked in a couple of times to see how I was doing and if I needed anything else. Next time I am back in Albuquerque, I would like to try other items on the menu that I didn't get to try this time.

    We shared a fairly traditional meal of Crab Cakes (out of this world!), a wedge salad and the filet. Food was superb as was the service from Enelody (sp?). Her timing was spot on! We finished our meal and a bottle of great Pinot on the patio and said, once again, what a perfect dining experience.

    I use to live on the Westside and always enjoyed going to Indigo Crow. When we moved to the eastside we still make the drive back over on Sundays to enjoy brunch at the Crow. We love the red chilie. They also have a great patio for the warm months and when it is cold we enjoy sitting inside by the wood burning fireplace. I would say make a reservation but that is super easy to do online

    The meal was good and tasty as always. I had the lamb and my partner had a filet. We ordered our favorite large Catalina salad to split. The cost for the large salad was 13.00 but instead they charged us 9.00 each for a 1/2 salad. No one informed us they would charge us that much to split it. Next time I will just order the large salad and manually split it to share. When we complained they did adjust our bill.

    Let's face it: from my reviews you know this restaurant is one of my favorites. You could argue, it is convenient for me, or it is always a safe bet in terms of dining, or that I know enough of the waitstaff to feel like Norm on 'Cheers'! What ever argument you choose -- you are right! I love this establishment. The food is excellent, the waitstaff always on point, and the ambiance is welcoming. I would strongly suggest reservations though and keep them! And go with time, this is a place to dine, not just eat --Enjoy!

    Tucked away in historic Corrales, NM just north of Albuquerque, Indigo Crow sets an amazing table! We both had the roasted duck breast with the best risotto with Parmesan cheese we've ever had. We choose a very enjoyable, young, and drinkable Malbec from their comprehensive and NOT overpriced wine list to complement our dinner entrees. The mussels in white wine source which began our dinner was alone worth returning for. The duck was perfectly done -- read moist, but properly cooked, neither overdone nor "pudgy" in the middle. The crème brulee for desert was rich and creamy with a perfect glaze atop it. We dined inside, but the outdoor patio dining is hugely popular. Yes, we'll be back soon -- and often! Highly recommended !!
