“Great Food Presentation”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2013

We happened by during Restaurant Week so got the Prix Fixe for $30 each. The food choices are interesting and a little different with lovely presentations. Tasted good, too. The wine list, however, was pathetic and not up to the food standards or what we expect in higher end restaurants. Overall, we enjoyed the meal and the service.

“We had a good experience. Interesting menu.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

We had an excellent meal at this unusual concept restaurant. We'd walked past Indigo Grill a hundred times heading farther into Little Italy but decided to give it a go on a birthday. It was a good choice.

The menu shifts with the seasons, has intriguing choices, service was attentive. We opted to sit outside where warmers will keep you comfortable on a cool evening. The main dining area looks a little cramped. An appetizer of seasonal root vegetables with interesting sauces and condiments was a hit. We had pork and chicken entrees. Imaginative. Delicious. Portions are large. Good drinks menu.

Cuisine is supposedly native American influenced but there are a lot of unusual combinations and influences. A definite change of pace from all the pasta and pizza in the neighborhood. Open Table reservations, occasional special pricing. High on our list for a return visit.

“An Institution”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2013

This is by far my favorite restaurant. The food is interesting (think fusion) and delicious. Two of you will spend about $100 for dinner and one round of drinks--but believe me, it's worth it! Try the pork ribs and you'll see what I mean.

“Favorite restaurant in San Diego”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2013

This restaurant plays with flavors. The seasonings are unique and delicious. I visit whenever I get the chance and I have never been disappointed. It's also a great option for vegetarians. Some dishes are completely meat-free and others can be ordered that way. The chef, Deborah Scott, pops in on occasion to check in with her diners. Love this place!

“One of the best restaurant in San Diego...if you are Italian”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2013

I love this restaurant: Atmosphere and stuff friendliness are amazing. The menu is also very good and the portions are huge especially on the main course: you can share them! The food is a mixture of cajon mexican and american cuisine. The salad are very good and huge. Their bruschetta plate and brie plate are to die for. All the main entries are very good. There is so much to chose from. The wine list is static, does not change and expensive- This is because I do not give to this restaurant 5 stars. Of course if you are like me that I care more about food quality than wine selection...it is a 5 stars place!
