“Good service with unusual menu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

Once we eventually found the restaurant (a lot of taxis and people seemed not to have hear of it) it was a pleasure. Its an old colonial style building with nice candle lit outdoor seating (inside if you wish). Excellent waiting staff with good wine list. Menu is ecclectic and has some unusual combinations - probably down to personal taste - but at least its not boring
worth trying to eek out

“Unusual name,Great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

Five of us went to Indigenous on Friday night. Luckily we had reservations because the restaurant was filled to capacity. Great service,wonderful wines and unusual choices
on the menu. I had the lamb which was excellent,others chose the cobia,ribs,and
the sturgeon. All of these choices were very good,interesting presentation,and delicious.
We ate outside the restaurant and had no trouble with noise. Inside there are several smaller
rooms. All patrons seemed to be enjoying themselves. This restaurant is a great find.
We shall return..........

“creativity, service, and it taste Good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

Returning after a wonderful dining experience last year , we were not disappointed. We were seated in the smaller back house(bar area) and it was very tranquil and comfortable. Angie was perfect. Always on top of things and SO pleasant. The beignets with honey a nd Parmesan melted in your mouth.THe wild mushroom bisque perfect. I had the most delicious flounder on the creamiest risotto with corn . He had lamb 2 ways,loved it. dessert was Chocolate pot de cream with ginger shortbread crumble. prices are so reasonable for the quality and creativity. a must stop in Sarasota

“I would return. Very tasty.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

This food was delicious. The service was excellent.
Almost everyone tried the mushroom soup and truly enjoyed it. I had a fish special and my spouse had the short ribs.
I would return, to eat here again. And I would try to go on a warmer night so I could eat outside.

“Delish!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

We had a great meal at Indigeous. We sat outside and enjoyed the atmosphere. The menu is small but the two choices we made were excellent, and the staff was very helpful in explaining the background of the dishes. All in all, a wonderful dinner!
