We really enjoyed our dinner. The wild mushroom bisque was simply outstanding and the fish really good. We will be back!

This was one of the best meals we have ever had on Florida's west coast..mushroom soup was outstanding as was wife's grouper and my cobia. We will be returning soon. Best soup, ever!

We've eaten here twice and both times the food was oustanding. The wild mushroom bisque is terrific and could be a meal by itself and all the fish dishes are unique and flavorful. The snapper is oustanding as is the cobia and sturgeon. We sat at the bar in a small and intimate room in the back of the main dining room. Cassie was not only a good bartender, but knew the specials, was very attentive to the service, and added measurably to the pleasure of our dinner. We consider Indigenous to be one of the great finds in Sarasota. We'll be back!

We were disappointed at the insensitive service and the food quality. The hamburger was more than well done and was overly peppered. The cobia was fishy but good fish, The food was not prepared as expected. I would not recommend at this time. The ambiance and the atmosphere on the inside of the restaurant was very nice.

Visited for lovely dinner with my husband. We had the "Hook to Fish" and Plentiful and Abundant Fish specials -- both delicious!! We also tried the Parmesan Beignets, which I did not care for (they seemed underdone in the center, which my husband thought was a filling?). The inside seating was a bit too dark, but the food was well thought-out and packed with flavor. Good value, I would definitely return!
