Diner Reviews
  • "One of my favorites -- lovely overlooking the water, quiet for talking, good food."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "The only problem was that service was very, very slow. But the view is great and the food was good, so we know we'll be heading back."
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "Had a blind date which went very well. We met at 12:30 on Sunday, went out to the deck had a mimosa, chatted, then made our way to the brunch area. Food was excellent. While I rated the "noise level" as middle of the road, I only did so because the restaurant is on the DCA flight path... no one's fault."
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "Enjoyed the setting. Nice outdoor eating but also nice indoor seating with a view. Very complete buffet with breakfast and lunch items. All were very beautifully presented."
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "Indigo Landing (IL) is run by GSI, a government contractor since the restaurant is on National Park Service land on the George Washington Parkway. Since we live in Old Town Alexandria, we dine at IL several times a year, in the evening on days when we can dine on the outdoor deck overlooking National Airport. The food quality is usually okay, but certainly not great nor a bargain, but the pursuit of great food is not why one should go to IL. Despite IL's scenic attributes, which should make it a go-to restaurant, the service invariably is incredibly slow for reasons that are not clear, although last night our waitress had just started working that day at IL. Complaining to a supervisor does no good -- it is like talking to a brick wall."

  • "There are few restaurants in northern VA with a better location. Outdoor dining at Indigo Landing, on a warm, sunny day, can't be beat. A varied, but not extensive menu. Casual and comfortable."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "6 of us celebrating sister`s birthday. Restaurant was crowded outside but not inside. Service was pretty good, a little slow with some drinks for some in our party .calamari appetizer excellent, beet salad so so. But entrees were truly excellent. All in all a hit with everyone"
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "Hadn't been here in awhile, and stopped in for lunch on the outside deck with a friend. Both of our hot sandwiches were delicious (the bun for the perfectly cooked flounder filet was unnecessary), and the service was attentive once they found us. No one minded that we lingered for a long chat after the check arrived. My only complaint is that the music pumped through the outdoor speakers was loud enough to interfere with our conversation."
    Dined on 4/10/2014
  • "I always enjoy this restaurant for the view, even though it was too windy to sit outside. The menu has been updated and the food was good. However, although we had an early evening reservation before the place was busy, service was extremely slow."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "What a great location. The food is quite good and perhaps the limited but good menus helps. The staff are nice but everyone seemed to lack joy? Yes the staff are capable but seemed burnt out or basically unhappy - wake-up call to management - something needs improving!"
    Dined on 4/10/2014
  • "I came to Indigo Landing because I found it on a few "best of" lists. I was fully expecting to be blown away by the food...not the case. The appetizers (Salmon Spring Rolls) were actually the best thing we ate, in fact we ordered them twice. The scallops were just OK, not bad but not great either and my boyfriend complained that his steak wasn't great either and that the best thing on his plate was mashed potatoes. Brussel sprouts had NO seasoning at all. I told my boyfriend that the flavored butter (i think that's what it was) that accompanied his steak would set it off...again, not the case. That didn't have much flavor either. Maybe the chef was having a bad day, but if we came back it would be for appetizers and great drinks!"
    Dined on 4/9/2014
  • "Reservations were easy via Open Table and I even got the tabe by the window I asked for. Servie was prompt and the food was good. The server seemed senstive to the business nature of our lunch and did not cut-in during discussions, which was much appreciated. A great venue for a business lunch, and great view of the water."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "Four of us met for brunch and sat with a great view of the sailboats and airplanes just South of Ronald Reagan National Airport. The food at brunch was terrific and tasty. We enjoyed it very much and if the weather had been just a little warmer we would have loved to sit out on their beautiful deck. All in all it was a great brunch anyway. Excellent salmon & mussels, made to order omelets and delicious fingerling potatoes. All good! The dessert trays were tasty too!"
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "Food was better than I expected it to be. Service was slow; too few servers. The view was why we chose this restaurant and we weren't disappointed. Had a great view of the Cherry Blossom fireworks."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "The salmon was amazing. The portion, sauce, sides were terrific. The chicken marsala was lifeless and poorly executed and a bad mix of sides. They need to update their cuisine and the facility. But overall the experience merits a second visit!"
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "The view is great. The food is ok. Oysters Rockefeller a bit bland and mushy. Crab cakes dense but tasty. Culotte steak a bit tough. House salad was very good, Ceasar salad ok. The service was adequate, but our server did not know the specials very well and could not answer our questions. This place could be phenomenal. What gives?h"
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "There was nothing bad about our meal, but nothing exceptional, either. The most enjoyable course was our appetizer: the ciabatta. And our wine was quite good. The server instantly brought me a different wine when I told him I didn't care for mine. He was excellent throughout. The important thing about the restaurant is the spectacular view. It's on the water. You see the Capitol Building and the Washington Monument, and watch planes take off and land at National. Easily worth the price of the meal, which happens to be quite reasonable by DC standards."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "The food and atmosphere were excellent. It was the first warm day of Spring 2014 on a Saturday and eating here helped us enjoy it even more. The food presentations and tastes were excellent. It was very pleasant overlooking the potomac river and watching the action at nearby National Airport, which was not close enough to cause a distraction."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "The food is great, the ambience lovely, the service appallingly insulting. My boyfriend and I met another couple there this past Saturday and both servers completely ignored me from the first time they approached the table, only looked at and spoke with my boyfriend (and then his friend, the other male once he showed up), completely ignoring us, the females. I felt when I had to speak up to give my order, the server looked at me disapprovingly as if I wasn't even allowed to speak and my boyfriend should decide whether I was even allowed to eat! I have NEVER had such an experience in my life anywhere in the world and was shocked and completely insulted! My female friend received the same treatment. Unbelievable, such disdain for women."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Went here for a sunset dinner on the first nice day of the year. Overall the view was great and the outdoor seating looked nice, however the food was very average (especially given the prices), and the service seemed somehow rushed and slow simultaneously. We would possibly go back to show guests the view or grab a drink on the deck, but I don't think it will become a regular spot for us."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "The view was awesome, I really enjoyed the atmosphere and so romantic. Overall the food was good not especially great, but good. I think the bar for happy hour would be a must do at some point. I would recommend to friends and plan to return."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "Perfect spot for good food and casual enough so that you don't have to dress up too much. Enjoyed the mussells and catch of the day. A very nice way to end a day's visit to Mt. Vernon."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "From the omlette maker to the waistress to all of the help including the receptionist -- all were fun and very friendly and very helpful. All had warm and wonderful smiles."
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "Good restaurant, especially when hosting out of town guests. It has one the best views of Potomac and the Washington skyline, especially at night. The restaurant feels isolated from the city, surrounded by trees from the GW Parkway, but it's right off 395 and just north of Alexandria Old Town. Airplane buffs will love watching the planes take off and land at Reagan National. The food is well made and actually pairs well with the great view."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "My boyfriend and I went here for a date night and were incredibly satisfied with service, atmosphere and the food. We made reservations (obviously) and when we arrived we asked if they could possibly seat us near a window and the hostess did not even bat an eyelash and gladly sat us where we requested. The night we went was also a clear night and we could see all of south east DC and the surrounding areas. Absolutely beautiful. Our waiter could obviously sense it was a date night and let us be aside from taking our orders and making sure our drinks were filled. This was an amazing experience and will definitely return."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "The food was fantastic ... The seafood fresh and the view of the city and airport runway was south fun. Never been to place before but will def return. Summer we hear is crowded but march was perfect"
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "Unfortunately, we were not able to take advantage of the brunch, lunch or outdoor dining. We're not bar people nor much in the way of drinkers, late night eaters or real foodies. But we enjoy a good dinner with a good selection from the menu--and good service. And we found it all at Indigo Landing. I made the reservations through Open Table, and got exactly what I asked for--a quiet spot, preferably at a window facing the river. We were only sorry we were too full to try one of the desserts, which all sounded delicious. We'll definitely be back."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "The food was very good, but the views are what makes this place. So lunch or brunch is the time to go, so that you can see the Potomac and the boats and savor the scene."
    Dined on 3/6/2014
  • "The view the food and the service were outstanding. We all ate something different and every plate was delicious!!"
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "The view is what sets Indigo Landing apart. The lights of Washington reflected in the water make a beautiful backdrop to dinner. The menu is mostly seafood, but offers enough other choices if you're disinclined to eat fish. My sea scallops were presented in a lovely bernaise and were delicious and the salmon spring. The pork chop was enormous. Bread pudding was a tasty dessert, but not a soufflé as menu stated. Our bill for three people was $150."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "Overall, great experience. Only drawback was a party in an adjoining area that was so loud at times that it interrupted our dinner conversation."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "I ordered the crabcakes. They were huge and delicious. This restaurant is now on my top restaurants lists in the DC metro area. My friend ordered the veggie lasagna and it was just as tasty."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "Had a great server who had worked there for 30 years and the view is spectacular."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Fabulous buffet brunch, with a great selection of items, including shrimp and mussels."
    Dined on 2/9/2014
  • "Had my eye on this restaurant for a while, finally got the chance to go. The view is great, the food is amazing, and the service is exceptional. This is one of the best restaurant experiences I have had and would recommend definitely to couples for a great date night."

  • "Great evening. BEAUTIFUL view of DC. Service was outstanding. Menu had terrific options for under 600 calories. Nice to have when going out for a nice dinner."
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "Good food and excellent service. The restaurant was virtually empty, which surprised me since they called to confirm my reservation. I wonder what that was about? Excellent view of DC and the airport - would be fabulous in late spring."
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "Great view of the Potomac and National Airport. Perfect for outdoor dining during the warm weather months."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "My first time eating at the Indigo Landing Restaurant….. I was very impress by the outdoor dining and service - with the exception for the bees:/ However, my overall experience was "outstanding" and I would most definitely eat there again with friends & family!!!!"

  • "This restaurant has easy parking and a great view. It is quiet and generally not crowded. For dining w Dad who hates noisy restaurants it works. Service was great, under utilized restaurant which I why we like it, no wait, no crowd."
