great rediscoveryHadn't been at Indigo in a while. Loved the food, room, service - very nice. Great place if you are planning to attend an event at the Civic Center. We saw the Carolina Chocolate Drops at SFJazz, also a fantastic experience. Very nice dinner and concert.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious!The food at Indigo is always delicious. The service is also great. I eat there often, and I am never disappointed.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat FindThis is a special place with great access to Civic Center cultural activities. Great menu and very knowledgeable staff. The service did get slow as the place filled up prior to "performance" times at theaters. Highly recommend.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMSeatingI like Indigo; the food was excellent and the service extremely good. One point however; we had a reservation and the maitre d' suggested we sat at a most uncomfortable table for two where one chair really wasn't a chair and for a back there was a vertical pillar. If the restaurant was full and this was the only option it might have been excusable. As it was there were plenty of available tables all through the time we were there. Why was the attempt made to get us to sit at the worst table in the restaurant, when it was almost empty. Although we got moved it was a fuss and left a bad taste in the mouth.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMAfter the crowds go on to ballet...Dined just as Indigo was bidding adieu to theater goers. Best time to dine there.
Quiet with food left in the kitchen and the wait staff all to ourselves.

Out in plenty of time for ballet.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have enjoyed Indigo forWe have enjoyed Indigo for several years. The menu was revised fairly recently and the place is better than ever. Perfectly cooked Corvina (based on my trips to Chile a TRUE Chilean sea bass.) My companions enjoyed the chicken breast---downsized a bit from the former menu offering but a more elegant preparation. Salads and the composed Asian-style tuna tartare were also quite good.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and service.Excellent food and service. Food is presented in such a beautiful way. The chicken with ravioli was delicious!4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWe just heard about IndigoWe just heard about Indigo on KQED's Check Please show. Made reservations for pre-ballet performance. Such a wonderful location for the ballet, etc. We don't like to go to same restaurant all the time. We had starters instead of full entree (they appeared to be very generous!). We loved our starters. My first bite of the tomato sauce with the meatballs made my mouth tingle! AND THEY HAD MITCHELL'S SORBET FOR DESSERT....The noise level is much nicer because the bar is small. We will certainly return--too bad that the ballet season is almost over. I hope they will still be there next year!4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMIndigo is a gem. Superb food,moderaIndigo is a gem. Superb food,moderately priced, excellent wines by the glass within 2 blocks of the Opera House and Davies Hall. The staff is available and not intrusive. I especially appreciate their 5 pm opening after a ballet matinee.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful food and excellentWonderful food and excellent service. This was my first visit, I will be sure to return.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a wonderful quiet dinnerWe had a wonderful quiet dinner on a Sunday night. The pre-symphony crowd had departed and were able to enjoy sharing our thoughts about the new jazz center event we had just attended. The waitress was very helpful without hovering. The kitchen accomodated our requests to share a crisp green salad with roasted beets and our entree of pork tenderloin with delicious borlotti beans and spicy greens. They also let us try their new ravoli of swiss chard with lemon caper sauce. It was suppose to be a side dish for another entree. The starter of dry scallops was pure heaven as the morsels melted in our mouths. The wine list was very good with choices that fit every budget.Too content we did not try desserts.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent!Excellent! The food and service were wonderful! I eat there often, and it always exceeds my expectations.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect spot for quick dinnerPerfect spot for quick dinner before show!! Service particularly good.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways Great!Always great! I highly recommend it prior to a Ballet, Symphony or SFJAZZ performance.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, can't wait to go back.Delicious meal, great service. We had the tuna tartare and asparagus salad to start, then the chicken with ravioli and pasta dishes. A description would not do them justice. They were fantastic. We were two women out to see a show, and now can't wait to go back with our husbands.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place to go before aGreat place to go before a performance. Food is always excellent. Interesting menu.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMIndigo's is a great placeIndigo's is a great place for a before ballet, symphony or opera dinner. The food is great, but the best thing is how there's a wine recommendation for each course, and that they let you order a half glass (very important pre-performance not to become too inebriated). The recommendations are excellent also, elevating the quality of the food immensely. Great place.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMAlthough a bit extra quietAlthough a bit extra quiet for a Saturday night (obviously due to Symphony strike), food and service continues to excel. Definitely worth an extra block (or so) walk for a superb way to commence an evening out.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMA step up for IndigoIndigo has always been a good pre-concert choice: it's convenient and reliable. On our last visit, the cuisine was much better than "reliable." The meal before a concert became a treat as well as a convenience -- a very strong step forward for a restaurant with a nice ambiance and very good waitstaff.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and quickQuite a lovely place to dine well with plenty of time to get to the ballet. Our salmon was perfectly grilled and came with a delicious complementary sauce. We would go again. Very pleasant staff.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMA return visit after severalA return visit after several years was rewarded greatly, with the good food we remembered, and very nice service. Will definitely return.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was superb. BestThe food was superb. Best meal in the last few years!3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMNo complaints!Our dinner was excellent from the seared scallops right down to the dessert. I couldn't decide on a wine, and our waitress nailed it with the Pinot! Wonderful all the way around, and I'll certainly be back!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMStopped by for date nightStopped by for date night with my boyfriend on a Saturday night. Our server was kind, attentive, and when we decided to order their prix fixe wine dinner - which is a total steal, btw - he gave us really good suggestions for wine pairings. Excellent service, but the wines came too quickly, causing a bit of a backup on the table. The food was delicious, I was happy with everything but felt a few dishes could have been better (ex. Tuna tartare was outshone by the apples in the dish, I really wanted to taste the tuna itself more - still unique and tasty though). Ambiance is beautiful and quiet. We'll be back!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMBefore Performance, small place.6Pm reservation on a Thursday before a ballet at the WMOH. Almost empty until 6:30, then filled up -- not many tables -- and a lot louder. Short, well prepared menu items; good wine list by the glass and bottled. I liked it and will be back on performance night.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMIndigo a Civic Center Best Value!Indigo's service and food were both excellent. Our waiter and the staff were attentive, helpful, and available but never ever intrusive. We appreciated the imformed recommendations and never felt rushed even though our party clearly stayed rather late and other guests had left. The food was delicious and artfully presented; we all agree we enjoyed far more food than we normally eat, because it was so good and so nicely presented!3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMDependable and honest.Good and dependable place. Service was good. Distance to Herbst Hall excellent.
Yes, I would happily return. The chicken dish was excellent.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and service.Excellent food and service. Not too noisy.
