We had the opportunity to eat last evening at the Blu Stone Bistro because it was easy and connected to the Hotel Indigo. We had a great dinner. The owner made some recommendations which we took the Brussel sprouts were fantastic and the New Delhi Spring rolls were outstanding. We both ordered flat breads for our dinner and the bartender...

Connected to the Indigo, you might not expect a tasty meal from this kitchen. Limited menu but good quality meal. Flatbread was good as was the burger. Certainly convenient while staying here or close by.

I had dinner here and I have eaten a delicious sword fish with vegetables: it was so fresh and tender and tasty. In the morning, this restaurant prepares very rich and good breakfast: especially good are the waffles with season fruit and maple syrup. Recommended.

Stayed in the IHG Hotel Indigo attached to this restaurant. Came down and had breakfast which was similar to what you would get from a Holiday Inn. The coffee was pretty decent and my waffles were OK. Wish they had real maple syrup. Location is good for travellers and I think would be OK for lunch or dinner. Cost was... More

We had a group of 6 people at dinner, and they handled this with ease. Everyone's entree came out at the same time, and service was attentive without being overbearing. Good food.

We started our stay here at the hotel with cocktails in Blu Stone. Bartender was friendly and attentive, the appetizers we ordered were delicious. We did return in the morning for breakfast and were very disappointment with the service. Very slow service for a place that was not busy, food came out cold. I would come again for cocktails but...

Had the occasion to dine here twice during my stay at the Indigo. Great food, nice atmosphere and very attentive staff. Even chatted awhile with Joe, the owner. Overall, a very pleasant and relaxing experience.

Staying at the Indigo. Went to Blue Stone. Part of Indigo. Bar was full. Told to sit is one of the tall tables. So I did. Offered no menu, no drink. After about 10 min. Nothing. Some one left the bar. Took that seat. Bartender...awesome. Very much on top of things. However, for a nice hotel, this bistro is nothing... More
