    We got to sit outside on patio for lunch - it was lovely. The service was good and attentive. The food wasn't bad but I probably won't go back. I had the "fish soup - it did not taste, smell or look like fish - it looked like beef broth soup and it was very tasteless. My guest had the special of the day- soup - clam chowder and she said it was tasteless too. I had the seafood salad - the crab in it and the salad were good but the shrimp in the salad were the little frozen pre-cooked ones - NOT what I expected when I was having lunch at a marina. Very disappointing over all.

    My husband and I celebrated our 30th anniversary as well as celebrated our good friends' recent wedding at Indigo Landing. It was not our first time dining at the restaurant and, as always, we thoroughly enjoyed our evening there. The food was wonderful, the views of D.C. were fantastic, but the highlight of the evening was truly the excellent service we received.

    Waiter was nice, setting is pretty (outside on the deck by the river), food was pretty average, though...oysters rockefeller were a bit bland and pork chop was over-cooked. Reservations were for 4 p.m. so I called the day before to make sure it was the full menu at that time, they said yes. But when we got there, it's only a limited menu 'til 4:45 apparently. Good.place to take out of town guests 'coz it's on the river.

    Meeting up with friends for lunch and the weather was great so we ate outside. Great service by waitress and busboys. Very good food- crab cakes, seafood salads and vege lasagna were enjoyed by our table. Do wish they would have lunch on Sunday - don't like buffets and at $35/head that is too much- I don't eat that much to pay the price.

    Had reservations for our group of 6 and asked to sit outside. Many empty tables inside and outside but was told we had 7-8 groups in front of us. Front desk when checking in was interesting--manager even acted like we were an inconvenience to be standing there waiting like hostess had asked. Food was good. Service not so good. Had to ask each time for a water refill and beer and wine glasses were empty and not asked if we wanted another--again had to ask for another. Two of us ordered a dessert to share that never arrived. Once food was deliver Ed, waitress never returned to check in temperature, taste, etc until we were almost finished. Was a new spot for our hubbies and not sure any of them will want to return.

    Overall, experience with this restaurant was absolutely disappointing, to put it nicely. I wanted to spoil my pregnant wife to a nice "expensive" restaurant for her birthday this past weekend, 9/21/14. Our first impression was WOW, but then, throughout the course of the evening, our opinions quickly went south. We're not "uppity snobs" by any means, but I chose this establishment for it's "high class" appearance for a very special occasion. The service was HORRIBLE. I had to get up twice to find our waiter and ask where our food was. The hostess did a better job checking on us than our waiter. Poor service, poor manager, and poor experience on a special birthday night for my pregnant wife. Absolutely UNACCEPTABLE at $30+ a plate.

    Wait staff and Hostess helped me pull off a surprise party for my wife and immediate family. The waiter brought out a specialty cake after the main course. The Manager came over to wish my wife Happy Birthday, engaged in some nice conversation, shared a piece of cake and then returned to offer us champagne for a toast. They made it a very special night for my family. Very attentive but unobtrusive staff. The food was excellent - great selection, great tasting, and they didn't skimp on portions. I highly recommend Indigo Landing!

    I haven't been here in a long time and I don't feel the need to hurry back. Food was okay. The cream sauce on the special was too thick and pasty as it cooled making the pasta a sticky mess. The special wasn't all that special, it needed more thought &better execution. Calamari appetizer was good as was the mojito sorbet--refreshing. Service was good. I was surprised after reading one review here about a surly hostess to have a similar opinion. What she lacked in personality she made up for in attitude. It was amusing to watch every party being seated ask for a different table. The view, as always is nice. I had mentioned in my reservation that we were celebrating a birthday. Nothing was done, that's fine but another table was brought cake.

    Beautiful restaurant. We had dinner and the food was amazing. It is a little too pricy for everyday dining, but well worth every penny. We sat outside before sunset and had the pleasure of watching our nation's Capital light up. There was a wedding going on so we had bonus live jazz music to listen to! It was cool watching the planes take off out of Reagan, but since we were outdoors they did cause a little noise that might irritate some. Not us, we enjoyed the atmosphere and our food and look forward to going back.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Indigo Landing. We were a group of college friends and their husbands. I asked for seating by a window because of the view and that was honored. Service was great, as was the food. My only concern was the lack of restaurant guests. We were probably loud, but it didn't matter since there were no other guests in the room. A few were sprinkled around outside. Hopefully, this was because it was the Thursday before Labor Day and Washingtonians had left the city. Don't want this place to disappear!

    The crab cakes were excellent. As good as they get. The filet mignon, ordered medium, was over cooked but still quite good. While the waiter offered to replace it, that would have delayed the entire evening. The waiter, by the way, was quite thoughtful in his suggestions and, overall, quite helpful.

    I took my husband here for his birthday. It was our first time here and I thought it would be cool to watch the boats and be right on the river. The weather was great and the sunset gorgeous, but the noise of the planes negates any hope of romance. The hostess was the saltiest, surliest hostess I've seen in years. It was a shame we put her out by wanting to be seated. Our server was pleasant and knowledgeable but "in the weeds" and not able to time our food appropriately. We finished dessert without my husband ever receiving the coffee he ordered. For the most part, the food was 'okay' with the exception of the raw creme brulee. Nothing that can't be replicated as well or better at home. On time. Without a nasty attitude.

    We found Indigo on Open Table. The restaurant is near Regan Airport. The restaurant takes nice advantage of the flights and the water so the outdoor and indoor dining is always entertaining. The food was a surprise. It was well prepared and well presented. The service was great as Steve took very good care of us. The appetizers was good and our main courses were also very good. The dessert was average. It was restaurant week and we took advantage of that special.

    The view of the waterfront, monuments, and airport are great! What makes this spectacular, aside from that, is the people. Jeff, the GM goes out of his way to make sure everything is humming smoothly, while looking very relaxed. Steve, the bartender, runs a very congenial bar. Miguel, our waiter, was efficient and attentive. The food was very good. I wish they would expand the menu just a bit and put a surprise or two on there, but the current menu hits all bases. In all, a jewel on the water and well worth the time!

    My husband and I tried Indigo Landing during Alexandria's restaurant week, and the food was beyond amazing! Most amazing was the idea to do shrimp wellington's, awesome idea I've never heard before and delicious! The only problem I had was the service. Our waiter was fair, brought the food out in a timely manner, but didn't know answers to our questions, seemed like we were inconveniencing him to even ask. Then, we waited over 15 minutes for our check, even after we had asked for it specifically. Missed our movie time for that. All in all, I would try it again just to hope for a better waiter, because the food and ambience was just that fabulous. I think the waiters (at least ours) could use some more customer service training.

    The lady at the reception didn't say a word when I came in, not a welcome, not a smile - she just waited for me to say something. When I told her I had a reservation, she asked if I wanted to sit at the bar or in the dining room. I chose the latter, which seemed to bother her. Without a word, she took me to my table, dropped the menu on the table, and left. It was pretty quiet, with many waiters walking around or standing. I had to wait for 10 minutes before someone took my order. Apart from that, the food was OK, but not really special. As other reviewers mentioned, it's more a place for tourists who like a scenic view.

    Indigo Landing has a great view of the water and boats and also airplanes departing south from DCA. The Restaurant Food was delicious, mostly. The creme brulee topping was bitterly burnt and there was a lot of liquid in the bottom of it, too. The trout and scallop mousse was exquisite and the grits "fries" were a special treat.

    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.
