Our first visit and we thoroughly enjoyed our brunch. Food was artisticly presented.
Great place to eat. Friendly staff. Nice food portions with fantastic flavor.
Fabulous trout and roasted romaine salad.
For our anniversary celebration at Indigo Grill, we were seated near the kitchen. It gave us a tiny peek into the demanding world of running a restaurant. We heard several times about Chef Scott's need for a sense of urgency on the part of the cook. While you want your chef to care about delivering a high-quality product, there was a little too much Hell's Kitchen in the mix. If I really want to hear folks being yelled at, hey--I can stay home!
Sister restaurant KEMO SABE closed in October. It was outstanding. The Indigo Grill Matches or may surpass what we felt was a great restaurnt. You can relax and just enjoy this restaurant. A dining experience you should not miss. We will be back.
The atmoshere was good. The appetizers (mussels, Brie) were good except for the Ceviche which was average. Service was acceptable, not great. The waiter forgot my wine. I had brought my own cake since we were celebrating 2 birthdays so I did not punish the waiter and tipped 20 percent. The entrees were average. My daughter ordered the whole seabass not realizing that it came as the whole fish with eyeballs. She could not eat it and traded with me for the chicken breast (which was the best dish). My son had the pork (decent) which the busperson did not pack up for us even though it was asked for. Way too many sauces and spices on all the plates. Overall, we were all disappointed.
Delicious food - beautifully presented- and attentive service. A bit noisy but overall a wonderful experience.
Always a winner in my book. Top of my go-to places.
We were there for a Birthday.... It was a great way to cap off the evening. They went overboard on the dessert they provided... it was simply awesome.
Ive been to indigo grill twice. The food this last time was even better than before. Appetizers were a bit late and the waitress spilled a drink on one of us but it didn't dampen the group. The chimichurri steak, duck & salmon all got raves.
Good about accommodating the extra person in our group. However, service was a but slow, possibly due to restaurant week The food was good, but it was a bit fussy- over garnished. My tamale came with uncut chives and cilantro, which were good flavor additions, but it was nearly impossible to get them on my fork. My husband's soup came out with a logo corn husk in it.
Great food, great restaurant. Service is generally great but my most recent experience was not good. Despite this, I will go back.
Always excellent food and service!
When you walk in the door to Indigo Grill, the over-the-top decor may seem a bit off-putting. But from the moment you are seated, any apprehension disappears when you meet the amazingly friendly wait staff and view the amazing menu. This is the second of the Cohn restaurants that my fiancé and I have been to, and these guys are 2 for 2. The menu had so many tempting options that it took us 20 minutes (and some unremitting questioning of our waiter) to decide. The entrées are large, so unless you're starving or with a large group, starters aren't necessary (although they ARE delicious). And I cannot recommend the white sangria enough - it goes down very smoothly, without the overbearing aftertaste of alcohol. We will definitely return!
Dante (our waiter) was outstanding - he made sure we had everything we could possibly need. He helped us select a beer and answered our questions about each menu item on the special Restaurant Week menu. An overall wonderful experience, and we can't wait to return.
I always have a great time and really enjoy the food there. Deborah Scott's creations are fun and add something special to the meal.
Always excellent food in generous portions, and the service is perfect.
Went for brunch since I had a BOGO. It was great! Shared the skillet cornbread-yum! I had the tamale entree and my companion had the skillet hash with chorizo. The coffee was excellent too! Great service. Will definitely return!
Bloodymary looked a lot better then it tasted. The drink had no flavor at all. Tomato juice and vodka, but it looked nice and yummy when it was brought out. The steak sandwich was really good, so good I think I'll get it again next time. So great food, just bummed about the bloodymary I had such high hopes lol.
very nice dinner there last night. place was very much alive. I like the creative combinations on the menu. The portions could be smaller and the prices lower, but overall very good experience.
Went for brunch. Food was good but very rich. No problem asking for substitutions (i.e. chicken sausage in lieu of chorizo in one dish). Cornbread skillet was really good, I could have eaten the whole thing myself, but then been full for the rest of the day. Dark decor makes the restaurant have a comfortable homey feel, although the decorations seem more staged than genuine. Good people watching even from inside window tables. I didn't ask for a children's menu so I don't know if they have one, but my kids were happy with the granola for brunch.
As always with Little Italy parking is less than ideal. Luckily Indigo Grill makes up for it with strong drinks and amazing food. Our table took advantage of restaurant week and had the butternut squash soup and tamale appetizers both were excellent. The soup had a nice spiciness to it and the tamales melt in your mouth. We had chicken and the smoked pork ribs, both were excellent. And for dessert, crème brule, a sorbet trio, and a pistachio torte. The sorbets were light and tart, the others were delicious but rich and we couldn't finish them after eating our meals.
I love the Cohn restaurants, but apparently not this one. It's a matter of personal taste... the food I tried was heavy, rich, creamy, bland. The ink-squid injected pasta was just a little too fishy.
good food, portions are huge...share
I only gave it a 4* for food because we are just not foodies. Squid ink pasta is hard to eat when you're thinking about ingredients. But there is a great diversity of flavor here and the quality is high. The service is so thoughtful and accommodating of special dietary concerns too.
The food was excellent and there was plenty of it. I cannot believe I had not been here. Will be back.
Love this restuarant - have been many times.
Indigo Grill's Restaurant Week menu was delicious. We had been wanting to try this restaurant for some time & were quite pleased. We went early as we were headed to the movies after & the service was friendly & prompt but not overly rushed which can sometime be the case when you go early! We will definitely be back soon - especially liked the corn tamale w/shrimp...mmmmm!!
excellent food and service-a real bargain during restaurant week-better than some $40 meals!
We went because of Restaurant Week and enjoyed our dinners.
What an outstanding meal we had during Restaurant Week. We definitely hope to return to this excellent restaurant. Loved the African seasonings.
Went there during restaurant week. Was excellent - what else can I say. Great waiter who added to our evenings enjoyment.
So much food! We went to Indigo Grill for Restaurant Week and the food was FANTASTIC! The butternut squash soup was plenty for two ppl; the spinach salad was to die for. I had the pork ribs with side salad and a corn bread pudding. WOW was that corn bread pudding AMAZING!! Great food and fun events! MUST EAT!
The 'bus-girl' was the best of the three service people we met. The hostess said 'follow me' - dropped the menus on the table - and left. The waitress was ok, one bus boy asked to clear my plate before I was done (husband was clearly not done). The difference in bus-boy 'are you done? (reaching for my plate) and the bus girl - 'may I take that out of your way if you're done'? was remarkable. We tipped her separate. The food speaks for itself; but people make all the difference when there's a lot of 'pretty good' restaurants to try
After being there twice in 2 years, I chose Indigo for our anniversary dinner. It was restaurant week as well, so we enjoyed it even more because of the affordability. The prices are high, but the food and ambiance are awesome!
Their "Fire Margarita" is out of this world...the food during restaurant week was not as impressive as I had hoped for. I will definitely have to try their full menu at some point.
This was our second time dining here in 2 years, each during San Diego's restaurant week. The food did not disappoint us. We both had the tamale which had to have been the most flavorful tamale I've ever had! We had the chicken dish and ribs with a corn pudding. Both dishes had soo many flavors going on that it left you begging for more. As for the dessert - nothing too exciting there. I would have passed on getting anything, but since it came with the $30 price, I'm not gonna complain. Service was great, although it seemed like we had about 5 servers hovering around us at all times. Overall, another great experience from Indigo Grill and will go back again in the future!
I love the food at Indigo Grill! Chef Deborah Scott is great. (I also loved her other restaurant, Kemo Sabe.) Apparently other people agree with me about the great food here. You need to have reservations to come at a reasonable time for dinner, even in the middle of the week. I initially came on a Wednesday at 6:30 pm and was told there would be an hour wait for a table. I also tried to make reservations for Saturday on that same Saturday morning, and it was already booked up unless you wanted to come for dinner at 9:00 pm. I like to come here on date night with my husband. Although I occasionally see children at Indigo Grill, I don't think it's very kid friendly as there is no kid's menu.
I have eaten here many times and enjoy the large portions and the generally creative cooking. That said, on this occasion, service was rushed and a little disjointed. More importantly, it seemed that the food was prepared with less care. The salmon was a bit dry and the accompanying pasta seemed greasy. The feeling was that they are not taking teh same care with the food that they have in the past.
Wonderful place - food was VERY creative and sooooo good!
