We did not know they were running a special on Tuesdays called "Date Night" where you get two entrees and a bottle of wine or sangria for $40, so we were doubly excited. The food was excellent and the staff were very friendly and helpful with all the choices. We will definitely go back.

Excellent choice in the Little Italy district of downtown San Diego. Had the rib eye special. Wasn't asked how I wanted it cooked and it arrived absolutely perfect. The pickled cucumbers had a nice kick as was the kabob the wife had. The chocolate pistacio torte topped off a marvelous supper. Great job Chef!

This place does amazing food! The food was full of so many different flavours - the menu has great selection - we ordered an appetiser each and that was enough to fill us! Staff are very friendly with a modern and rustic feel atmosphere!

One of our favorite dinners while in San Diego was at Indigo Grill. There were three of us and we shared small plates: taco plate (mahi mahi, jalapeño chicken and carnitas), antichucho board (pollo, cameron, beef filet), and the serrano ham flatbread. It was enough to fill us all up, without being so uncomfortably full. While the tacos and antichuchos... More

great food, especially the bipimbop and the bar is fun with great bartenders. The brie cheese is always great and so are the tacos.

We decided to try this because it was close to our hotel and the menu was interesting! It didn't disappoint us! We tried the lobster ceviche- a very large portion and quite good - not spicy at all; the appetizer board with the skewers, hummus, flat bread and pickled vegetables was our favorite! We had the shrimp, beef, chicken and... More

We love the Indigo Grill, and always go whenever we fly into San Diego because its location downtown is close to the airport. A few years ago they remodeled, and it looks very nice (but I also liked how it looked before). It's a fusion restaurant, mixing Southern, Native American, and South-of-the-Border cuisine in creative ways. Their menu is fabulous.... More
