“Expected Better ......”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2013

We arrrived mid-week for our 6:30 reservation. Three minutes standing there before we were met and seated. 13 minutes later the first visit from our waiter. Friendly enough. 10 minutes later we had our salads. 45 minutes after our salad dishes were picked up, our entrees arrived. Yes, 45 minutes! A water girl that came by after about 20 minutes agreed to check on our order but never came back. No mention of the long wait from our waiter. After finishing our entres we asked the waiter whether the delay was normal. She said a new chef was the problem. She did at that point agree to comp one desert.

My large white prawns in linguine was excellent but my wife's "medium" rack of lamb was under cooked. We took the rarest ones home. We didn't ask to have them cooked further since we had already been there 90 minutes. Our total visit was over two hours for just salads, entrees, and splitting a desert.

We've tried most of the restaurants in Cambria and this was our first visit to Indigo Moon. It was also our last.

“Lovely Lunch in the Garden”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2013

We had a hard time deciding what to choose from some very tempting choices on the menu. Hubby reported his fish tacos were excellent and I had the scallops, although there were many non-fish items as well as vegan items on the menu. The garden made a lovely setting for lunch and our waitress was friendly and efficient.

“Good Appetizers, Average - Poor Entrees”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013

We stopped based on recommendations of a local vendor and good tripad visor reviews. Server was pleasant. Appetizers were very good. My husbands steak was cold and my risotto sauce had separated leaving it very soupy not creamy. When the steak was sent back to be reheated we could hear the chef yelling at the server that the reheat would make the steak more well done. Well, if it hadn't sat so long in the kitchen, it wouldn't have been cold. Probably would not eat here again. Menu looked good but execution was sorely lacking.

Enjoyed lovely dinner after being warmly welcomed by owner. Nice selection of specials, steelhead trout with a lemon cream sauce was excellent. Pear walnut salad was very nicely presented. Very nice wine selection.

“Friendly People, Delicious Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013 via mobile

While visiting Cambria we stopped at Indigo Moon a bit after lunch to pick up some cheese. Great cheese selection! They have about 30 of the best local and imported cheeses. A good selection of wine to go with your cheese as well. While getting our cheese we were intrigued with the restaurant menu and ended up going back for dinner. We started with the pear and blue cheese salad. It was divine - the pears were perfectly ripe and the dressing was a nice tart compliment to their sweetness. My husband had the Flat Iron steak which was cooked to perfection. Excellent flavor with a generous helping of fingerling potatoes and broccoli. I had the Penne with Prosciutto and Peas in an orange cream sauce. It was amazing. The salty prosciutto combined with the creamy orange sauce and peas was the perfect balance of salty with a hint of sweet. We will be going back to try more of their creative dishes.
