“Excellent dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

Everything was perfect for dinner! Starting with our server being very informative and going into details about their different wines to describing each dish that we had any questions about. We had a great time and plan to come back!

The food was excellent and so was the service. This was our first time and we thoroughly enjoyed the evening.

“Fresh, fabulous food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

We are so happy this restaurant was recommended to us. Small menu which I think means a lot of thought goes into each dish. My husband had the sturgeon & it was delicious. I had the special & it was good also. We shared the brussel sprout salad...very light. A nice change from a traditional salad. The service was also very good.

“One of the best meals of my life”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

Everything about Indigenous was done to our liking. Starting with the space--it's located in a smallish house with a wrap-around porch in downtown Sarasota (Towles Court/Laurel Park area). Understated, comfortable. Local food. Great wine and beer list. Courteous staff who don't hover. We really enjoyed our evening at Indigenous. Don't miss this place-- make a reservation!

“Loved it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

We were a little worried about being disappointed after the hype we read-- expectations were high.
Expectations were met! I love eating at places where the staff is enthusiastic about the food and place. Our waiter clearly loved the food, the concept of buying local and the cook's creativity. He couldn't wait for us to try the food to hear if we liked it.
Lovely creative space, very romantic. Definitely worth checking out!
