Ribs were excellent and we liked the decor.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and serviceExcellent food and service in the heart of Montclair.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWe decided to try Indigo onWe decided to try Indigo on a whim, while driving through Montclair one day. We also had seen it on OpenTable and the menu looked good. When we arrived, we were greeted by the matradee and seated at the window, which we enjoyed. The artwork was exquisite and the music reminded us of a coffee house.
Overall, the food, ambiance, and service was great and would definitely return.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth the visitFrom start to finish, it was a nice experience. Server Judy was patient with us since it was our first time there. She was fast to open and serve the wine we bought with us. She made suggestions since several sounded great. What's more important is I saw other servers and staff being just as attentive to their customers. That is a sign of a great place.
We left before seeing Judy. She caught us outside on the sidewalk to thank us for coming and invite us to come again.
I would come back to try other items on the menu recommended by friends who have been here on a regular basis. Chef Lance works magic in the kitchen.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent contemporary takeExcellent contemporary take on traditional Southern food. We went to dinner on a weeknight- very convenient after attending the movies in Montclair. Try the pull apart bread with anything (unless you don't like butter) - the brisket and the catfish were both terrific as were the sides.My husband enjoyed the potato crusted scallops as an appetizer. I tried the lobster spring roll which was delicious but the lobster was wasted in it. We were too full for dessert but will definitely return. PS Background music made for a terrific atmosphere.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMMore than pleasantly surprised!I am hesitant to go to upscale soul food restaurants as most I've been to come up lacking. That was not the case with Indigo Kitchen, EVERYTHING was DELICIOUS! Most of us were talking about "needing to come back" half way through the main course. Our leftovers didn't even make it home as we finished them on the car ride home, after our show.
There are only two cons to to Indigo Kitchen:
1. It's a BYOB, but there are two liquor stores within walking distance.
2. It is almost impossible to decide what you want from the menu! It all looks so good.
I also just want to leave a shout out to the waitstaff. Our server was incredibly attentive and really knew the menu well. Just a great experience overall.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
