We had a table for four, with one being vegetarian, one anti-vegetable, one anti-seafood, and one omnivore (me). Fortunately, the small menu was able to accommodate all of us. Before dinner, they gave us a very small dish of cheese crisps, one crisp for each of us. No bread. I had the cobia special, which was tasty but also a... More

We had dinner last night with another couple. The food and service were just fabulous. We ate outside in a lovely environment. The fresh seafood was cooked to perfection. All dishes were creative and with lots of different flavors. There is probably not a better culinary team in sarasota. We will be back soon.

We have been here many times and loved it always. Tonight we got the impression all the staff was "getting through" tonight so they could enjoy their thanksgiving holiday tomorrow. Not the best atmosphere. Won't be rushing back.

Were there with a couple of friends 2 days ago for dinner. We had read a number of very favorable critics on this restaurant. We were blown away by the creative "out the box" menu, the quality and freshness of the ingredients, the presentation snd the outstanding service. This is in our opinion one of the best restaurant in Sarasota.... More

Not the easiest place to find. Not very big. The wine list is longer than the menu. Hours 5:30 to 9:30 only. Sound iffy? Be not fooled, my friend. The service was excellent and suited your time frame and needs. Beverages very good. Local beers on tap. HOT delicious coffee. Lovely wines. Food was unique, plentiful, appropriate temperatures, and unbelievably... More

We are foodies & truly appreciate delicious food. The care put into each plate is more than evident. Beignets are amazing- savory clouds of happiness! The pork belly melts in your mouth. The...

Our party of 6 could not have had a better experience. Seated at a wonderful table on the patio, we enjoyed the freshest of Florida fish and seafood, (and the short ribs too)each dish prepared with extraordinary presentation and artistry of flavor. The Parmesan beignets were to die for! Everyone enjoyed a wonderful after dinner cappuccino with a unique ice... More

Picture a hurricane brewing off the coast of Florida’s East Coast. Picture us (wife, seven years-old twins and I) consequently taking the powder in Sarasota. First night. Dinner. Where to go? What ho! Indigenous! Indigenous is a multi-sensory experience. A stand-alone wood-beamed structure in a neighborhood of leafy towering trees. Step off the street into an immersive experience. Dark woods.... More

My husband and I came here once before and thought it was just OK. Everyone kept telling us how great Indigenous is, so we decided to give it another try. Well, I'm so glad we did. Everything was absolutely delicious and we plan on coming back again very soon.
