This was our second time here and while the pork belly Lo main is one of my absolute favorite dishes anywhere that's all that I can rave about. I ordered the burger which came out raw twice and my husband had the lamb which he liked but didn't Iove. We also got dessert which was average too.

always liked it but have not been there for months. went last night; we had raw brussel sprout salad and mushroom soup, both divine; sturgeon, shrimp and swordfish main courses were spectacular; Gooey Butter Cake for dessert, we all shared it, and really did not expect it to be so good. In summary, everything was far beyond expectations.....and it is... More

This restaurant has a very short and limited menu. Have eaten there twice recently and it appears that outside of the fish of the day, the menu does not change. Service is good and the food well prepared but don't go there looking to eat what you want -the other night they were out of one of their "signature fish"... More

Would I recommend Indigenious, yes. Mistakes happen, but... More

We went with friends last night. It seems a lot of our friends love Indigenous, but somehow we had not found our way before. Our mistake. Our server, Nicole, was exceptional-nice, informative, friendly! The food was great and we were all very pleased with our choices. This morning, several of us were talking, comparing and reminiscing about our dinners last... More

After a few attempts we finally got a reservation at Indigenous and it was worth the effort. This great little house converted into a restaurant has several small, intimate rooms for dining that provides a wonderful atmosphere and a quieter dining experience. And yes,and the cuisine is excellent as is the service. I had the wild mushroom soup and the... More

We had an indoor table at this converted home into a 4 STAR very good and casual restaurant. There is nothing casual about the outstanding wait staff and chief and all the unique ingredients used for each meal.Wonderful fish , fowl and wild game. Indigenous is a little hard to locate but it is well worth the effort. This was... More

Ate outside with 2 other couples. I had a shaved brussel sprouts salad and a delectable Cobia on a mound of julienne vegetable and green curry sauce. Very yummy. Excellent service too

Nice setting for a restaurant. The service was attentive though not particularly friendly. The food was very good. However, the final bill was so costly that it ultimately detracted from an otherwise nice meal. Be prepared to spend a lot of money.
