    We enjoyed so much our first visit to Indigo Landing. We had ideal weather and sat on the outdoor patio. The crab cakes were extremely generous. Would have liked a larger quantity of seasonal vegetables under them. Tried the wine flight and asked the waiter for advice on several, and was extremely satisfied with the 3 picks.

    Unfortunately the restaurant week menu didn't speak to me so ordered the Seafood Cobb salad. The salad was fresh and enjoyable in the summer air but the shrimp served were not deveined- gross. If that doesn't bother you then it was a near perfect meal. I will be returning but will skip the shrimp dishes.

    I ordered the scallops and they were amazing. Cooked to perfection. We were seated outside and it was great. Not too hot, had a nice breeze coming off the Potomac. Watched the planes take off and land at Reagan. I would have ordered dessert but was too full from the meal. Would come here again. Service started out great but as they got somewhat busier, it took awhile for our table to be cleared and to get the check. No water refills either. Still would come back though.

    We recently celebrated our 5 year wedding anniversary here at Indigo Landing. We had an absolutely perfect night and fabulous dinner thanks to the efforts of General Manager Johanna Kearns. Johanna made sure we had the best table by the window with a stunning view of Washington, DC. our server was attentive and sweet. We had the crispy calamari to start and took the recommendations of our server and ordered the scallops and the salmon as entrees. We were not disappointed. The scallops were amazing and the salmon was cooked perfectly. For dessert we had the strawberry shortcake/cheesecake and a special chocolate fudge covered peanut butter ice cream. We will be back again, and again!

    I always like going to Indigo Landing because of its lovely setting and view. However, over the last few years, the menu has become increasingly less diverse and varied. Indeed it appears to be primarily oriented on catering to tourists. While the meals are well prepared and portions are appropriately sized, the pricing appears to be higher than is warrented.

    The restaurant was not completely filled when we arrived and sat down. However, they decided to place two sets of couples at a table literally 3 feet from us when there were many open tables around us. That was fine until they were extremely loud and wouldn't stop. we decided to move tables and apologized and gave reasoning but the hostess and the server were not thrilled and were rather put off. From there our new server was very reluctant to come to our table. Even though most of the restaurant was fairly open at this point. The service did pick up towards the end and he was a very nice gentleman. The food was excellent and the scenery was beautiful. I am glad we chose to eat here and hope to come back in the future.

    Indigo Landing is a great place for outdoor dining - the view is spectacular. The service is very good. The food depending on what you order can vary from please take this back to very good. It is not a place to expect fine dining, however, it is a place for a nice evening. Stay with salmon, crab cakes, sandwiches and you will have an enjoyable meal - DO NOT order steak - their steaks are low quality.

    If you are looking for an excellent restaurant for food, view, service, ambiance, this is it! You can dress up or be casual. It can be for a special occasion or just a change. My husband and I have had exceptional evenings out here, and I understand that the earlier bar scene is popular. I highly recommend making a reservation first. Enjoy! It doesn't get much better!

    After reading various reviews I was very happily surprised by this experience. I chose it for the location, a great one for out-of-town visitors staying nearby. I thought the location would be wonderful - and it was. I thought the food and service would be okay - and both were way better than that. Both the hostess and the server were polite, considerate, efficient. The server was helpful with descriptions and recommendations. My visitors had the salmon which they praised highly. I had the scallops and they were done perfectly and served with just-right spinach and angel hair pasta. The salt-caramel chocolate cake shared three ways made a perfect finish. I'd return when convenience takes me in that direction, for sure.

    I have been to this restaurant several times, for both lunch and dinner. Every time I have eaten there, the service has been horrible. They seem to be disorganized, it takes FOREVER to get menus, drinks, etc, and even longer than forever to place an order and actually get your food. We had to ask for sugar for our iced tea. We had to ask for bread. On the positive side, the view of the Potomac River, National Airport and Washington, DC is terrific, and the outdoor seating is very nice. It is easier to get an outside table at lunch than at dinner. The interior of the restaurant is dated but pleasant. The only reason we go to this place is the view.

    This was our first visit to Indigo but it will certainly not be our last. Needed a "special place" for a dinner with out of town guests and this worked out perfectly. The reservation at 1845 was found by the hostess without any problem and our table was just as requested. The menu offered plenty of choices and the four of us each had something different than the others and each found their selection it to be well prepared, nicely presented, very tasty and reasonably priced. and the view was even better. A great evening all around.

    We hadn't been in this spot in a very long time and decided to have dinner there early on a Saturday. The food was very good....the service was excellent, though it was not that crowded yet....but as we left the place was filling up quickly. The scallops and the salmon were cooked perfectly and very large portion sizes. We will be back.

    Nothing beats cutting out of work early on a sunny, low humidity Friday in July... spending it on the outdoor deck at Indigo Landing made it even better! We enjoyed a relaxed few hours, reading work papers with a glass of wine in hand, followed by a wonderful sampling of various dinner items. Every time a jet departed from DCA, we pondered to what FUN adventure those folks were headed. We even got to "tink" to the lovely sun setting over the trees -- but be WARNED: once the sun sets, the buzzing mosquitoes come alive!

    My companion and I had ordered steak. A New York strip and Filet Mignon. Both steaks were tough and tasteless. The manager made it right by giving us free desserts and taking the strip steak off my bill. The desserts were delicious! Even though I was disappointed with the steaks, I felt good when I left because the manager made it right.

    The food was great, the scenery was awesome, however we were seated in a room that was scheduled for a wedding reception and approximately halfway through our meal, we were disturbed by workers going in and out of the room to set-up the outside for the ceremony and the room we were seated in for the reception. I felt it was very poor planning on the restaurants fault to seat patrons in a room that you knew you needed to turnaround by a certain time for a special function. At one point we actually felt as if we were being rushed to vacate the room.

    The Staff was below average. When I come to a restaurant and purchase a nice bottle of wine and spend over $200 on my dinner, I expect a knowledgable friendly staff! This was not the case! The restaurant was a ghost town for a Friday night other then the out door seating that apparently they didn't have enough servers tending to. The food was all premade!!! From our oysters that tasted like they came pre frozen to, our entres that tasted like something I could have gotten for $10 at Applebee's!! The dessert was a prepackaged Brownie as well!! I'm so disappointed! The website makes this place look fantastic! But the reality is it's an over priced restaurant that makes nothing in house! You are paying for the view..... And that is it!!!

    The menu has a little something for everyone, and everything we ordered was fantastic. Service was painfully slow however during our visit. Sitting on the patio was nice based on the weather, however shade is limited so avoid the outside on hot, sunny days. Best bet for eating outside is when the wind is from the north, as it provides a nice breeze not blocked by the building and also changed the traffic pattern of nearby Reagan Airport. If flights are taking off toward the north the sound is barely audible, but if they are leaving to the south it is very loud at times.

    OpenTable did a great job on our luncheon reservations; we were seated outside at our favored table-- great views, nicely shaded from the bright sun, quiet; service was prompt and friendly; our food was overall very good, if not exceptional. I would definitely recommend Indigo Landing as a great place to go with a group or just with a date, and I would recommend OpenTable as a convenient way to make your reservations.

    A friend and I try to get together a few times a year for lunch. She lives in Alexandria and has young children so I try to select places that are convenient for her. Our requirements are easy parking, decent food, and enough time to enjoy our lunch and each other's company before she has to pick up her children at their various schools or day camps. I hadn't been to Indigo in quite some time but on a beautiful summer day it was a great choice. The service, thank you Maria, was great and our cobb salads were quite nice.
