Had the King crab legs that came split for us and were the sweetest we have ever had, Ny strip was cooked perfectly and they Lobster Mac was awesome. Our server Katie could not have been better and the Sin cake for was the perfect finish. Wine list is very impressive. We highly reccomend this place.....

    The dog murals on the walls were strange. The music felt almost like we were in a dance club. The calamari was disappointingly chewy, though the dish had a nice balance of flavors. Two Indigo Cut steaks, one ordered medium, one ordered medium-well. The medium steak was severely under-cooked (rare at best), and the medium-well steak was quite over-cooked. Neither of us had a knife sufficient for cutting through the tough meat. The cut up under-cooked steak was returned to the kitchen to cook longer, which might be against health code (?), and was still quite rare when it returned to the table. The staff was courteous & apologetic, comped one of the steaks & two desserts. It just wasn't what I'd hoped for a nice dinner out with my boyfriend.

    Made reservation for my husband's birthday - even put that in the reservation note. Nothing special about the food or service. Manager/bartender stopped by the 3 tables surrounding us to see how things were going, but walked right by our table without stopping. Very disappointed and won't be going back.

    If you're looking for superb cuisine in Springfield, IL, you want to try Indigo. This gem can compete with the best of them in Chicago. The service was a little slow on a Monday night when the restaurant was only about 40% filled, so I might be concerned about service on a crowed weekend night. But: the experience was great. When visiting IL's capitol, this is THE place to go.

    I just moved to town and met a few co-workers for drinks and appetizers. We were very impressed with everything this place had to offer. We all had different appetizers and shared, Hot dates were great and Oysters were super fresh, generous Wine pours and martinis were creative. Service was perfect. Very happy to know a place like this is near my new home. Can't wait to go back for date night.

    Indigo was a great surprise. From the outside it was not impressive. Inside, it was totally unexpected. It's located in a strip mall with a neighboring store going out of business. The inside decor is dim and very eclectic. The food was spectacular with generous portions and well paced. The service with Kaylee was very good and the entire experience was exceptional. Too bad that we don't have plans to return to Springfield.

    This place is by far the best in the area. Great food and service and the wine list is awesome. The vibe was very cool with blue dogs on the walls and lounge music for background. Try The Rock appetizer, you get to cook the meat yourself at the table. All entrees include bread plate with roasted garlic and a very nice salad and my dirty martini was perfect. Can't wait to return.

    Great location, good is excellent, just the right amount of light and music. So what's the problem right? There are no dividers to give you a private location for a romantic dinner. It's basically one big room with tables and chairs. Other than that it's my favorite restaurant in Springfield.

    Whenever we have a special occasion, or want a good dinner out, this is our go to place. The service is always very good. The menu items change, so it's not the same ever time you go. We like the quiet atmosphere. At some places, the music is so loud you can't hold a decent conversation. Prior to the entree being served, a small plate with pita bread and hummus is brought out along with olives and sautéed garlic. Dinner comes with a salad and house dressing. Entrees are good without being super-sized. There is a good wine list and beer offerings. Their martinis are very good! While a bit on the expensive side, sometimes you just have to treat yourself to a nice time out on the town.

    I've now eaten at Indigo three times, and have yet to be disappointed. The menu changes frequently, but always offers a good range of choices. Twice I've had seafood, and each time it has been accompanied by an interesting sauce and thoughtfully selected starch and vegetable. The marinated olive and garlic clove s'amuse bouche is very good. The deviled egg appetizer is always a good choice.

    A fine spot to reconnect with old friends. This is a charming restaurant with multiple appetizer and entree selections to suit most reasonable and many fine tastes. The atmosphere is romantic/funky, and the dog paintings are enchanting, provided you are comfortable with a pooch watching you throughout your meal. As a dog (and cat) lover, it was all aces for this reviewer. I enjoyed the salmon on a recent visit, while my companions raved about the crab legs and filet combo, as well as a solid steak choice. The martinis got high marks. A recommended place, with very good service and prices that are not inexpensive, but most acceptable given all the positives! Along with Maldaner's, it's one of the top places to dine in Springfield.

    Not your everyday eating experience for sure, but this place is about food taste, presentation, and overall experience. Not for the casual diner as a full meal is quite expensive (drinks, appetizer, salad/bread, main course, dessert), but certainly each bite is worth the cost. This kind of meal is about savoring each bite, not how much you get - although the portions were perfect in our opinion. The menu is limited, but typical for the type of restaurant. We thoroughly enjoyed each course and did not feel rushed at all. The environment caters to a slow pace and even on a Friday night it was not crowded. Light level is low, but not too dark. All regular seating is in a single large room, but we never felt "next to" someone else.

    So glad we used open table for our night out at this fine establishment. Started with drinks at the bar and were served by Levi who made our slightly dirty martini and old fashion better than we have had in a long time, Our table was ready right on time even though the place was packed, crab cakes and calamari were both unique and delicious. Steak and Crab legs were the best we have ever only to be topped by the Sin cake for desert. Can't wait to go back.

    A better dining experience could not happen. From the very attentive service to the very fine meal! There were the little things that were special. One example is the re-folding of napkins whenever left the table for a short period. The décor was eclectic.
