Diner Reviews
  • "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 had a wonderful evening. All of our very specific dining requests were granted. Our walk on the grass after dinner was great for all of us."

  • "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."

  • "In summer, we always take our out-of-town quests to dinner on the patio of Indigo Landing. The food is wonderful. The setting is beautiful. And we love to watch the planes taking off or landing at the airport."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "Service is alway excellent and the setting is beautiful. Sometime noisy because of the planes taking off but it still makes for an enjoyable evening. Thank you."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "No doubt this is a beautiful setting in all seasons. The food is good -- not gourmet, really, but good -- and the prices are reasonable. Wine list is very limited and, although reasonably priced, lacks depth."

  • "Our waitress just celebrated her thirtieth anniversary working here. Her excellent service and food allergies accommodations proved that she adds values to the customer experience at Indigo."

  • "We had a great time. The food was excellent as usual. The window table was great for seeing the DC skyline. Everyone was very friendly and kind.We will be back again."

  • "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."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "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!"
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "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 ."

  • "Delightful lunch and excellent service. Very relaxing atmosphere also."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "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."

  • "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
  • "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
  • "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!"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."
