This is a very good restaurant located in a strip mall. The atmosphere inside is a little too open and 90's-inspired (they have blue dog paintings hanging all over) to give it an excellent review. If they had more intimate seating and updated their look a little, this could be one of the best places to eat in Springfield. The food was excellent (I had Chilean sea bass), and the wine list was very good. We split the duck enchiladas as an appetizer, and found them delicious. They are pricey, so save this for a date night or special occasion. One thing I will do in the future is to visit their bar just for drinks and appetizers.

I've been here 3 times. First time was awesome! Great hummus. Second time was average food with good service. This last will be the last time. Lobster bisque was salty, waitress kept getting our order wrong and was rude when we corrected her (I think she was the manager- she wasn't dressed like the other wait staff). But $60 later I was left irritated and unsatisfied. This is disapointing because there aren't a ton of non-chain restaurants in this area.

This place has a great menu and really some great entrees. The only problems are that their alcohol cost is exceptionally higher than anyone else in the area so that distracts us from going but maybe once per year and the lighting is so dim that you have to ask for a candle or some additional lighting just to read the very dark menus. Not sensitive to those with peanut allergies either. Descriptions on menu are not thorough enough and do not include listings of allergies or peanuts included on dishes. But truly overall, I very much enjoy dining here and always enjoy the food and atmosphere!

My wife loves the martini's at Indigo. Food is excellent and creative. Menu changes regullarly. Appetizers are great. We especialy like their filet's and sea bass. Top off dinner with a bacon brownie!

Just returned from dining at Indigo's with my husband and daughter. it was an impromptue dinner, without reservations and they squeezed us in on a Saturday night. It was quite crowded and a little noisy, but we could hear each other. They were able to make Caipirinhias, however just a bit overpowering and light on lime and sugar. (Maldaners makes the best!). We ordered the Calamari app and the tuna salad. The Calamari had a wonderful spicy aioli, however it was a little more like a salad. The tuna salad was actually a tower of tuna tartare, crab and avocado. Wonderful and fresh. along with our salads came pita wedges with olives, garlic and humus. Very tasty. For our mains we had the most divine seabass. filet and lobster. A small nick in service as just a few minutes too long between app and main, and a few minutes too long to pick up the check, otherwise service was attentive and friendly. Recommend if you go to reserve the corner table for two.
