We each had 3 courses with the butternut squash soup, pear salad, salmon, ravioli, cheesecake and churros. The highlights were definitely the soup and cheesecake - both were really delicious. The pear salad was okay, but the cheese on it was a bit bland. The salmon was overlooked but the salad and squid ink pasta that came with it made... More

I ate here with business colleagues - group of 6 of us - and we shared several plates. The skewers are great - shrimp was a favorite. Also, the mussels and clams were to die for!! I had bad mussels once, and have never been able to eat them since... this dish cured me! I could have licked the bowl.... More

Loved, loved, this place which we came across just walking around on our way to Little Italy. Great atmosphere with some very different and distinct dining/seating areas, including some around fire pits in the covered and open patio areas. Wait staff was friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. The menu is Latin inspired and varied - from small bites to more substantial... More

Our family of 5 was visiting San Diego over Christmas. We had many great meals while we were there, but our dinner at Indigo Grill, which we found while walking in the neighborhood near our AirBnB, was the best! The ambience is cozy and rustic, the menu imaginative, and everyone's food was delicious. The service was also great.

I actually visited Indigo Grill on Christmas Day. They had a 3 course meal. 3-4 choices for each course. I had a tamale, chicken and polenta stack and churros. Not only was the food very good and fresh and modernly creative....I equally enjoyed the cocktails. I had two of the best margaritas I've ever had. Pomegranate Jalapeño Margarita and a... More

Our family selected Indigo Grill for our Christmas dinner. It was a beautiful menu that was simple to select from. We are so glad we made reservations because I could see why people were trying to drop in. The flavor and style of the meals and Indigo Grill are very unique and the portions very filling. Plating and presentation is... More

I've been here twice, once for a group function and once to give it a second chance with friends. Both times I must say I was disappointed. Noisy, fancy looking food that didn't satisfy, overpriced and slow service. I'm sorry to say I don't think much of this place except they serve a good variety of wine and if you're... More

A friend and enjoyed a wonderful meal at this Chic decorated Grill. The atmosphere was eclectic as were the patrons. We both enjoyed the $30.00 for three promotion. You have a choice of a few Appetizers, Entree's and deserts. We both chose the "Skirts on Fire" for our Entree's and enjoyed them immensely. Careful, They are a bit Spicy, but... More
