Coming from a somewhat "artsy" family with wife and one of my two daughters being painters, we traveled to the Towles Court area of Sarasota for a dinner at Indigenous located there. A "farm to fork" establishment with fresh local food, we had a delightful dinner. The portions were somewhat small and precious, so be sure to order enough appetizers... More

Great restaurant downtown but in a great little neighborhood. Food and drinks were very good. The atmosphere is amazing. This is a hidden gem.

We were excited to have dinner at this 9th ranked restaurant based on reviews and recommendation. We arrived exactly on time and were being seated in the narrow entrance close to the mens room when I asked if we could be seated in a side room with a bit more calm. The receptionist/waiter looked and soon said we could be... More

Tucked away in a downtown neighborhood of re-gentrified homes turned commercial enterprise, Indigenous is my newest favorite food destination. There's plenty of parking near the corner house that's wrapped by a most inviting garden patio. Inside, the original rooms have not been destroyed. during renovation. Instead, changes lovingly brought new floors, great lighting, cozy tables with comfy hemp framed chairs,... More

We were lucky it was a cool night in SRQ. Bisque was perfection. The wine flowed, mains were delicious and it was a great place to enjoy good food and great company. Love that everything is local. Will definitely return.

My husband and I had dinner at Indigenous a few days ago. It was our first time visiting the restaurant and will not be our last. It is located in the middle of an artisan area of Sarasota amongst colourful old houses containing art studios and such. Very interesting part of town that despite vacationing here for year, we did... More

Indigenous remains one of our favorite places to dine in Sarasota. Service is impeccable but low key. The restaurant has a wonderful low key ambience and the kitchen turns out wonderful fare.

My husband is a chef and going out to dinner is a chore for him, however, he loves to indulge me and this restaurant is the ultimate in indulgence. We were literally on a high while we nibbled at the most incredible food, drank a perfect bottle of wine and enjoyed excellent service. Please do not miss this experience.
