Excellent options in menu for small and big dishes. Went with my daughter and two of her colleagues and had a delicious salad dinner. Had the an appetizer, crusted and warm brien with roasted garlic. My daughter had the tacos, 3 in one plate, and you can mix an match, fish, beef, chicken or veggie.

I had the "good things growing" from the plates grandes and it was a bit of an odd combination of separate bits of dishes. It was lovely to see such a robust vegetarian meal on the menu and it came heartily recommended. I just did not like the taste of the corn pudding which was actually the major element of... More

Excellent ying and yang of Latin American (not solely Mexican) cuisine with Asian accents. Other dishes are mainly Asian and have a LatAm flare. The day that i went i was alone (Business trip) and had the special - steak, a tamale type and Asian style grilled shrimp. VERY good. Friendly and attentive service, good wine a beer selection and...

We had not been to Indigo Grill since the remodel last year. Boy have we been missing out. The decor is great and the menu was a great mix of old and new. We have the Calamari as starter and it was probably the best I have ever had as it bursting with great flavor and spices. We also had... More

Great fusion cooking - surprising combinations of Latin, Asian, and Mediterranean flavors and techniques. Great for those who love creative cuisine; traditionalists may be confused. Probably not for vegetarians and definitely not vegans.

Cute place to have an appetizer or dinner. The drinks were delicious. My friend and I decided to sit near the fire pit and we ended up talking to other patrons. It was nice and relaxing and the atmosphere was perfect.

We had a great Server named Lindsay. Ask for her, though I'm sure all the staff are well trained. That is a hall mark of the Cohn Group. A fusion of American Comfort Food and Spanish influence. Part of the Cohn Group, a San Diego Local Company, the Chef has a masterful staff. Steak, See Food, Pork and Chicken are... More

TripAdvisor is my go-to whenever traveling as the food and lodging contribute greatly toward the overall travel experience. We chose Indigo Grill based on the TA reviews and slid in just under the wire for the happy hour. Their happy hour specials for food and drink are pretty phenomenal - delicious food for a very, very good price. Like many... More

Great beer selection and creative food menu. I had a vegetarian dish that included the corn pudding and it was amazing. My husband was impressed by how fresh the ahi was. As he would put it "like candy that melts in your mouth".
