Great restuarant and love the bibimbap

always a great restaurant and Mike the bartender is fantastic - the food and drinks are excellent! The bibimbap is a favorite (not sure on spelling) and love the churros to end the meal

Calamari was good. But chirashi salad we would not order again. Rib eye special--had to order rare since rib eye was so thin, corn/shrimp accompaniments were good. Will not return.

We came here with friends on a busy Friday night. We made reservations, but were running late and called them, they held the table for us until whenever we got there! Service was fantastic. Our waitress let us take our time, answered many of questions and brought us our food and drinks at a good pace. We ended up ordering... More

I've eaten at Indigo grill now several times. It is fabulous every time. Last visit I had the grilled salad- everyone is doing one now I know- but this one had just the right amount of everything. We also had the churros- I'm not a huge fan of churros but these were really good. The atmosphere at this spot is... More

We actually went here by accident in our search for Italian Food. When i looked at the rating on trip advisor compared to the other restaurants close by, we decided... More

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.
