    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.

    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.

    I brought my husband here for Father's Day and was pleasantly surprised. We both had the jumbo lump crab cakes which had lots of lump meat and minimal filler. They were delicious. We really enjoyed the food and the scenic surroundings. Service was good and accommodating. We plan to return very soon.

    we showed up at 8pm for our reservation. We had to wait 20 minutes to be sat. Then we were sat outside and our server never showed after 30 minutes. I came to the host who was rude and asked for the manager. I asked to be sat inside at a new table in which she sat us back outside. She told us our server (an older man) was having a bad night. She took our drink order and never came back. 15 minutes later our waitress arrived with our drinks (which were wrong). reservations at 8 an i was able to have water at 9:20. I also was paying for a babysitter so I am glad my time was wasted.The manager never checked on us and the restaurant did nothing to make up for this. the host didn't say goodbye and I got an email saying I didn't show for my table

    soft summer breezes are best enjoyed in the relaxing atmosphere of Indigo Landing. Comfortable, low-key atmosphere and a menu which gives everyone a choice: full meal, or light fare are all available and the view is incomparable. The service is spot-on and not hovering. Just right. This is our "go-to" restaurant, especially with out-of-town visitors. They all love it.

    I found this restaurant when Googling restaurants near National Airport and feel like I hit the jackpot! Even in rush hour airport traffic (weekend day at 6 pm) this restaurant was just 5 minutes for the airport and was wonderful. Free parking, great menu and beautiful view. It was not too loud and the ambience was really nice. I had the scallops, which were excellent, and my friend had the salmon, which she loved. The portions were generous, the service was wonderful. Wine and dessert options also very good. I would go back again in a heartbeat.

    Indigo Landing boasts one of the best views of the Potomac and downtown DC. Not only that but the food is spectacular. We enjoyed lemon garnished salmon, mussels in a delicious butter garlic sauce, freshly seasoned shrimp and lots more brunch items. Thanks for making my Sunday morning memorable.

    We picked a perfect evening to eat outdoors there. During daylight, some sail boats were out and about and the sky was clear enough to see the Capitol and Washington monument. Then, when dark, the city lights were beautiful. The menu was varied and interesting and the food was fit for my very Foodie friend.

    this is the place to go when the weather is nice and you would like a very pleasant dining experience right on the water, looking up the Potomac and seeing all of Washington DC. The deck is the place to be on a warm evening, can't be beat, overlooking a lawn going down to the water, some sailboats going by, lots of green and trees, and the river and DC set out in front of you.

    Our last visit to Indigo Landing was horrible. We heard it had been redone, so gave it a chance, for my wife's birthday. Admittedly, I was taking a big chance. It turned out to be a homerun. The menu had been totally redone, and the waitstaff (a huge problem before) was stellar. Both out meals were excellent. The apps are hearty, and could be easily shared. The entrees were great, tasty and more Han sufficient without being wasteful, and the desserts were excellent as well. The wine list is not huge, but had my wife's favorite champagne! Highly recommend it!

    Food is OK, a bit overpriced. The view of the river, planes taking off and landing is spectacular. You can also have the same view for free at the nearby Afterdeck Cafe if you bring your own food. The cafe also sells snacks and drinks.

    Took my girlfriend there for a first date, and was pleassantly surprised they were accomodating, with a very nice table and a romantic setting outdoors. Unfortunately I took a star off for the noise level of the aircraft taking off every so often; we'd have to stop talking until they went by. The airport is just accross the water, so you can't get around the departing aircraft noise. Otherwise, the food and service were magnificent. Food choices were moderate, but typical for a restaurant like this; however salad and entree choices were significantly reduced because we do not eat pork products. The Salmon was delicious.

    We were a party of 6 at Sunday Brunch celebrating a birthday. The outside seating and view was spectacular as always. The food was a non-memorable average Bruch fair: Omelet and waffle stations about 2 additional breakfast entrees and 4 lunch entrees for $35 per person. Not worth it. The food was just ok. The service was just ok. the décor was dated but just ok. I think most people come here for the view. Indigo is in desperate need of a face list; start with several coats of paint; then replace the threadbare carpets, update the furniture, add more variety to the menu. Expand the brunch offering....Either that or keep doing what you are doing until nobody shows up!

    Very nice setting with a very nice view and very good food. We had an outside table and could see the Washington Monument and the Capitol lighted in the distance up the Potomac. Unfortunately, there was a large wedding party, which nearly overwhelmed the kitchen. An hour wait for an appetizer order to arrive is a bit long. The server seemed to do the best she could. We weren't in a hurry and someone did eventually apologize but didn't offer any comps.

    Food was so-so. The appetizer was great, but the sandwiches my wife and I had was not the best (smoked samon, and fried flounder). The samon was alright except that it was the thin sliced smoke samon which my wife did not prefer. Except for me drowining the flounder sandwich in the tartar suace--it just lacked flavor. Went for the view and it was great, you're right next to Regan National airport though and the planes taking off were distracting at first (we ate outside). Our main server was ok, but went AWOL for about a half an hour. The other staff however did pick up some the slack.

    We went on a beautiful Friday evening at 7pm and it was a lovely setting for dinner and a sunset. Food was good, my scallops were yummy and my husband enjoyed his steak. The wine was not exceptional but it was okay... It really is a lovely view and we enjoyed watching the planes landing at the airport.

    The restaurant has a large outdoor deck overlooking the Potomac and National Airport. You can hear the planes taking off and landing but it didn't seem intrusive or make conversation difficult. Without really looking too closely, it appears sitting inside would offer a similar view. Hostess wasn't overly friendly but our waiter, Matt, was very good. The food was so-so...looked good but nothing special. Prices are moderate. All-in-all I wouldn't make a special trip to IL for the food but would definitely go back for an evening on the deck...or perhaps appetizers and a beverage at the attractive bar.

    We had a group of 8 for a birthday dinner and everything incredible. Everyone raved about their food -- salmon, scallops, lamb chops, steack and fish of the day. We were inside (unfortunately it was raining), at the far end by the deck and we had a great view and very attentive service from bartender to server. We will definitely be back and hopefully in better weather to enjoy outside or better views.
