Excellent food!

Had a great meal, after a long day of wine touring. Blaine made great recommendations for drinks and entrees. Food was very well prepared and the portion sizes were quite large. My wife and I shared the rib-eye plate and nearly have some left over!

Recommended by our hotel, this is a solid place for a lunch or dinner. The food is fairly standard but above bar-food varieties. The wait staff was friendly and knowledgeable.

We came here because of the reviews and were not disappointed. I was looking for some good unique eats and this place was exactly that. They have some familiar items but some original stuff as well. Service was good.

We ate there during a conference and this fusion Mexican food was superb and kept taking about it later on. I ordered three types of Taco and I wish I can be now in San Diego and eat more!

I've been eating at Indigo Grill for years and it never fails to impress. Reservations are recommended but if you do have to wait for a table take a stroll up India Street and see the rest of Little Italy. And be sure not to miss the Alderwood Plant Salmon with squid ink pasta; it's amazing.

We originally went to C Level to celebrate my birthday knowing that they don't take reservations. We thought if we arrived by 6pm that we would be fine but that wasn't the case. There was already a 90 min wait. What to do now on a Sat night? Called Indigo Grill while scrambling to find a new venue & although... More

Our last night in San Diego and we made a terrific choice coming here. The ambiance is great - a perfect mixture of antique items with a modern twist. The service was excellent - our waiter was personable and efficient. We were able to eat outside which is a nice option - you're outside but still somewhat enclosed. We both... More

We both agreed that the food (all three dishes) was really bland. I should have realized it by the clientele, which was mostly old white folks. The drinks were delicious, so I do recommend stopping by for a cocktail.

Chef Deborah is just amazing. I've eaten here maybe 5-6 times when I'm visiting San Diego. Her dishes are innovative, delicious, beautifully presented and way more food than the average person can eat. My husband and I have started sharing one entree as we are traveling and don't want to take left overs to the hotel. It is way more... More
