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

Enjoyed a fun and tasty dinner last night at Indigo Grill. The Anticucho Board was a beautiful presentation with skewers, hummus, flat bread and pickled vegetables. We each ordered something different; ceviche (awesome), grilled romain (love!), and potato/pepper flatbread (arugula made it!). Would definitely recommend this restaurant when you visit San Diego.

As we were flying to San Diego with a three hour time change, we made reservations at the Indigo Grill for its location to our hotel and a dinner menu that allowed us some lighter choices. We were seated in the side area with windows and skylights that allowed us to see out to the street and on one side,... More

The menu is one of the most varied, eccletic and innovative that I have ever seen. The Roasted Butternut Squash soup is absolutely fabulous as is the Fig and Walnut Flatbread. The Baby Kale and Quinoa Salad and the tacos were okay. One person ordered the Good Things Growing dish which had indian corn pudding, roasted poblano stuffed chili, baked... More

Went here with a group of ten. The menu was interesting and a little bit different. I ordered the braised pork shank and shaved pear and apple salad. The salad was simple and delicious. The pork was so tender. No knife required. The vegetables were tender and the sauce delicious. We splurged on the Kemo Sabes potted brownie. Wow. The... More
