Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "The service is horrible. It started with the hostess and then moved on to the waiter. The hostess could not find the open table reservation so I had to go back and ask that she double check. She finally found it. The waiter was inattentive and slow. I spoke to manager. I would not recommend this place and/or the waitress."

  • "Indigo Landing has really improved their menu and food quality. And its location on the water is pretty unique. Its laid back and quiet, with the exception of all the airplanes landing next door!"

  • "Food was ok, not spectacular. The venue is excellent but needs to be polished up quite a bit, especially when you have an unhinged lightpost on one of the railings. TRAIN YOUR SERVERS. If I order an appetizer and use my fork, you need to bring me another when with the entree. When clearing dishes, DON'T bring dishes from another table to mine, and DON'T place those other dirty dishes on my table as you grab the ones from my table. All servers should be reciting the same specials (my server didn't mention the gazpacho that I heard offered at the next table). Bring a spoon when you bring the coffee. C'mon folks, this is "Waiting Tables 101" and if you can't get the simple stuff correct, you'll go the way of all your predecessors."

  • "Scallops and salmon were delicious. Our server, Emerald was wonderful: attentive, friendly and knowledgable about the menu. Will return if in the area...the noise from the planes landing and taking off is not bad and shouldn't stop people from sitting outdoors ."

  • "Indigo Landing is one of my favorite places to go from May to October just to sit outside and enjoy good food, family and friends with one of the nicest views in the area. The breeze off the Potomac is cooling even on warm nights and kids love the game of counting the planes coming in and going out. The crab cakes and scallops are favorite dishes, both in ample proportions, and the smoked salmon and wasabi wraps are my husband's favorite appetizer. I'll be there a lot again this summer."

  • "Went here for Sunday brunch with family visiting from out of town. Good assortment to please everyone's taste. Everyone had a nice time and will definitely consider again when they come to town. Nice music, nice vibe, might turn down volume a little it was sometimes hard to hear each other and we were not right next to the artist."

  • "Indigo Landing is a great place for Sunday brunch after morning church services."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "Food was excellent but service was poor. Staff apologized saying they were very busy, but very few tables were occupied inside. Deck seemed moderately busy. After sitting down, it was 10 minutes before waitress stopped by our table. It was another 5 minutes before we even got water. Night followed that trend."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Indigo Landing is always good, but especially nice when the weather is perfect and you can sit outside. I had guests in from out of town and they loved the perfect evening outside with great food and ambiance. They didn't even mind the noise of the planes taking off from Reagan. Great for Sunday brunch too!"

  • "It was our Anniversary but it was not acknowledge even thought I made a comment when I made the reservation on Open Table. The food was very good; service was fine overall but a bit slow."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Indigo Landing is a corporate restaurant operation, operating under a contract with the National Park Service, with unionized employees. Hence while the food generally is not bad, and sometimes quite tasty (like the scallops we had the other evening), the service runs from fair to poor to atrocious. While the servers vary in talent and attitude, the underlying problem is the poor qualify of Indigo Landing's management and its unionization."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Usually at a restaurant with an outstanding view (which Indigo Landing certainly has) you expect to get served rather pedestrian dishes. Indigo Landing's menu, though limited, has a rather broad range of excellent food. We particularly enjoyed the seafood and chicken entrée salads."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "The food prep is weak but ingredients fresh. On entering, the reception was less than inviting. He (the receptionist) seemed bored with his job. We were taken to our table sat for a while waiting for our waiter despite the restaurant not being busy. The sun was directly in my face so we decided to change our table. I flagged down a waiter in another section of the restaurant and told him we would like to move and he approved. We sat for about 10min waiting for a waiter and had to flag down another waiter who suggested that since we had moved was probably why we didn't get waited on. So it was our fault the service was poor. The restaurant itself had an un kept and disheveled feel. This restaurant is crying for better management."

  • "We came to Indigo for a special family occasion and we're not disappointed. The setting on the water with boats and the birds offering delightful diversions was just right service was professional and attentive. We ordered several of the appetizers for all to share, and they were all excellent. Of special note were the fried calamari -- light and crisp batter, and with the occasional banana pepper thrown for a nice bit of tang, likely the best I have had -- and the mussels steamed in a lovely tomato ginger broth. I had been before, and will come again. The rest of my family are now converts."

  • "we showed up at 8pm for our reservation. We had to wait 20 minutes to be sat. Then we were sat outside and our server never showed after 30 minutes. I came to the host who was rude and asked for the manager. I asked to be sat inside at a new table in which she sat us back outside. She told us our server (an older man) was having a bad night. She took our drink order and never came back. 15 minutes later our waitress arrived with our drinks (which were wrong). reservations at 8 an i was able to have water at 9:20. I also was paying for a babysitter so I am glad my time was wasted.The manager never checked on us and the restaurant did nothing to make up for this. the host didn't say goodbye and I got an email saying I didn't show for my table"

  • "I brought my husband here for Father's Day and was pleasantly surprised. We both had the jumbo lump crab cakes which had lots of lump meat and minimal filler. They were delicious. We really enjoyed the food and the scenic surroundings. Service was good and accommodating. We plan to return very soon."

  • "I found this restaurant when Googling restaurants near National Airport and feel like I hit the jackpot! Even in rush hour airport traffic (weekend day at 6 pm) this restaurant was just 5 minutes for the airport and was wonderful. Free parking, great menu and beautiful view. It was not too loud and the ambience was really nice. I had the scallops, which were excellent, and my friend had the salmon, which she loved. The portions were generous, the service was wonderful. Wine and dessert options also very good. I would go back again in a heartbeat."

  • "soft summer breezes are best enjoyed in the relaxing atmosphere of Indigo Landing. Comfortable, low-key atmosphere and a menu which gives everyone a choice: full meal, or light fare are all available and the view is incomparable. The service is spot-on and not hovering. Just right. This is our "go-to" restaurant, especially with out-of-town visitors. They all love it."

  • "Indigo Landing boasts one of the best views of the Potomac and downtown DC. Not only that but the food is spectacular. We enjoyed lemon garnished salmon, mussels in a delicious butter garlic sauce, freshly seasoned shrimp and lots more brunch items. Thanks for making my Sunday morning memorable."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "this is the place to go when the weather is nice and you would like a very pleasant dining experience right on the water, looking up the Potomac and seeing all of Washington DC. The deck is the place to be on a warm evening, can't be beat, overlooking a lawn going down to the water, some sailboats going by, lots of green and trees, and the river and DC set out in front of you."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "We picked a perfect evening to eat outdoors there. During daylight, some sail boats were out and about and the sky was clear enough to see the Capitol and Washington monument. Then, when dark, the city lights were beautiful. The menu was varied and interesting and the food was fit for my very Foodie friend."

  • "Our last visit to Indigo Landing was horrible. We heard it had been redone, so gave it a chance, for my wife's birthday. Admittedly, I was taking a big chance. It turned out to be a homerun. The menu had been totally redone, and the waitstaff (a huge problem before) was stellar. Both out meals were excellent. The apps are hearty, and could be easily shared. The entrees were great, tasty and more Han sufficient without being wasteful, and the desserts were excellent as well. The wine list is not huge, but had my wife's favorite champagne! Highly recommend it!"

  • "Food is OK, a bit overpriced. The view of the river, planes taking off and landing is spectacular. You can also have the same view for free at the nearby Afterdeck Cafe if you bring your own food. The cafe also sells snacks and drinks."

  • "Took my girlfriend there for a first date, and was pleassantly surprised they were accomodating, with a very nice table and a romantic setting outdoors. Unfortunately I took a star off for the noise level of the aircraft taking off every so often; we'd have to stop talking until they went by. The airport is just accross the water, so you can't get around the departing aircraft noise. Otherwise, the food and service were magnificent. Food choices were moderate, but typical for a restaurant like this; however salad and entree choices were significantly reduced because we do not eat pork products. The Salmon was delicious."

  • "We were a party of 6 at Sunday Brunch celebrating a birthday. The outside seating and view was spectacular as always. The food was a non-memorable average Bruch fair: Omelet and waffle stations about 2 additional breakfast entrees and 4 lunch entrees for $35 per person. Not worth it. The food was just ok. The service was just ok. the décor was dated but just ok. I think most people come here for the view. Indigo is in desperate need of a face list; start with several coats of paint; then replace the threadbare carpets, update the furniture, add more variety to the menu. Expand the brunch offering....Either that or keep doing what you are doing until nobody shows up!"

  • "Was surprised to find such a wonderful restaurant at the marina. The airplanes are very noisy when they takeoff in the direction of the restaurant, and you're sitting outside, but otherwise it is a great location. The food was excellent!"

  • "Very nice setting with a very nice view and very good food. We had an outside table and could see the Washington Monument and the Capitol lighted in the distance up the Potomac. Unfortunately, there was a large wedding party, which nearly overwhelmed the kitchen. An hour wait for an appetizer order to arrive is a bit long. The server seemed to do the best she could. We weren't in a hurry and someone did eventually apologize but didn't offer any comps."
