Great location, ambiance, and the customer service was good and fast. The only reason I gave some areas a lesser score was because when I asked for a Chianti on the menu it was said it was not available even though it was on the menu. And the wine was very expensive. The hatch potatoes were delicious.

This was our second visit to Indigo Crow with the new chef and menu. Both times the food has been great - when it finally showed up. That is the basic issue, the kitchen just can't seem to manage the timing. We had a table for four, and the restaurant was maybe a third full, but it took almost an hour from ordering to being served. The server was apologetic but this was clearly a kitchen problem. Our meals finally came and three were fantastic, but the fourth was room temperature at best.

Our first visit was a similar experience though not as drawn out. The food is great so I hope the kitchen gets it together because they'll never be able to keep up with a full house based on this performance.

We went to Indigo Crow to celebrate our anniversary. The ambiance is nice and the service was acceptable but slow. The food is quite expensive for what you get. My wife had a shrimp risotto that only had 4 shrimp. I had porcini mushroom encrusted scallops. There were only 3 scallops and they tasted burnt.

The waitress asked how we like the meal and turned and left as I started to tell her. Obviously she didn't really card.

I would have expected a complimentary dessert to recognize our anniversary, but nothing was offered .

Sam was amazing he was by far one of the best servers I’ve ever had the please of being waited on by. He was profession but he was able to joke and enjoy our company the entire night, he would be an asset to any one lucky enough to have him employees. His knowledge of the menu and ingredients was amazing and his recommendations were spot on. Extremely high class and they held an fantastic standard of dinning that would exceed those high end locations in central Scottsdale. I have been recommending that everyone go and try this place.

Waitstaff is not properly trained. We were told that many of the items on the menu were no longer offered. Our appetizer was served burnt. We sent it back and the owner came out with the same burned appetizer turned upside down and looked at us like we should love it... when we refused it again he told us his food wasn't for us and stormed off. So we paid for our wine and left.

My husband and I love apps and drinks here, especially the happy hour...it can't be beat. I've given Indigo Crow a 5 star review in my TripAdvisor account.
However, we took my husband's brother and wife here for his birthday and he was served bad trout, I mean BAD, it even stunk! None of us could believe the chef actually prepared it. What made matters worse was the manager never came over to address it. The waitress took it away, apologized profusely and asked what else he'd like to order. In the end...the only thing they did was delete the price of the BAD fish from the tab. So all in all, close to a $250 tab and we were left embarrassed :(

Not many people in for a Sunday night at 5 pm. Our waitress was pleasant and made a mistake in our order that ended up in our favor. For an empty restaurant we had to wait for water refills and silverware. The street corn we ordered was amazing. My daughter's hemp tamale was delicious and the rack of lamb was good per my other daughter. Two of us split the Tomahawk which we ordered medium-rare but was quite rare inside. They corrected that well and we really enjoyed the re-fired steak. The vegetables were good. The wine list was good. Lots of potential because pretty good food quality but cannot go more than 3 stars for tonight.

We were on holiday and checked out the reviews for this spot and decided to give it a try. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. The house margarita is the bomb! Food portions are quite generous and delicious. We enjoyed an array of appetizers and ended up returning 2 days later for dinner. The Ahi Tuna bowl and lobster ravioli were amazing. Leave room for dessert because their Butter Cake hits all the right places.

Disappointing visit. My halibut special was rubbery and lacked seasoning. My wife’s cauliflower risotto needed salt. Our daughter’s chicken undercooked (regardless of what the chef said about the temp). Have been there a number of times. This is the first time we felt as if we had average meals at above average prices. Mentioned it was our anniversary on the reservation...no acknowledgement. Disappointing.

The table cloth was dirty with stains and crumbs when we first sat down and when we asked for a new one the hostesses response was “sometimes these have stains but if you need a new one I can get one” - gee thanks.

The Ahi Tuna appetizer was one of worst we’ve ever had. The texture of the pieces was not consistent with some pieces hard and others soft. I’ve had fast food poke ahi tuna bowls with better tasting fish.

The entrees were extremely over priced- Market prices for all the steaks so you have to ask the price on 6 different items. $50 for a steak in Arizona....

Ended up with the Lobster Ravioli (which was not a traditional ravioli more just a large piece of pasta folded over burnt stuffing), the lobster was under cooked. For $38 this was over priced and underwhelming.

No dessert menu so you had to listen to the few items they have and again no prices mentioned.

The atmosphere- they are trying to be higher end - but upstairs they have a bar so throughout the night we could hear the basketball game on and sneakers squeaking.

Disappointing experience for an extremely over priced restaurant - especially when there are so many other options for better value.

Casual place. Been there twice and really liked the food, as did the people we were with. I think it changed management (don't know when). Most of the people we've been there with had bad experiences in the past but all agreed that their recent experiences were the same as ours - very good.

Service was great, ambiance is artistic and enjoyable. My wife had Porcini encrusted scallops (VERY good) and I had Mole Chicken (spices in Indigo Crow's mole are quite good, presentation was appetizing). However, eating the 1/2 chicken turned out to be rather messy (it was whole rather than sectioned for easier eating). All in all, we will be back!

We came over on Saturday to celebrate my birthday the following Monday; it was our first visit, and were we pleasantly surprised. The outside does not reflect the experience on the inside; it was unique, very clean, beautiful artwork, nice tables, great wine selection, and the menu, along with the food, was outstanding.

I'd encourage anyone looking for a special celebration, or just a 5 star dining experience to try Indigo Crow. We'll definitely be back again.

Ambience & service was fine. The food, however, was not. We enjoy going out to eat, trying new places, experimenting with food and don't mind paying a lot if the food & flavor combinations are worth it. Every dish I had was underwhelming or over the top in a negative way, with spice, consistency, or flavor. We were concerned that there were many empty tables when we arrived on a Friday night, and now we know why. They need a new chef. Carefree/Cave Creek have some pretty good restaurants, and if you want to make it in this market, you have to be excellent.
