Went in with a group from work. My food was excellent - ordered grilled tuna and it was very nice. Not a large portion but good. Others in the group also were happy with their food. The menu had everything from tacos to steaks to bibimbap. One of our guys got slammed by the waitress when he ordered a domestic... More

It was very busy when we got here but managed to get three seats at the kitchen. Was fun to see the food being prepared and experience the heat of the kitchen. Great drinks too.

We went here for dinner. Service was attentive. The dishes try to be on the creative side however none of what we ate could convince. I had a similar eating experience in Paris where everything was much better. It is OK to try this place once but I would not return,

Food was great. The quality of the food was worth the price. Drinks were a little pricey but complimented food.

Indigo Grill doesn't quite fit into a category completely; it fires shots all over the place with regards to the offerings on its menu. What else can you expect of an non-Italian restaurant in Little Italy. Indigo Grill occupies a corner location so during the daytime it can receive plenty of natural light. The dining venue is a good size... More

Let's start with the frustrating issue: Came early for Happy Hour to learn that it was only served at the bar. But there was no space for 4 people. No $6 appetizers etc. Wine prices are OK, they offer a good selection matching the food. The menu was a bit cryptic for someone who does not speak Spanish but we... More

My wife and I had a nice time here and enjoyed the food and some of the drinks. The Mule and Sangria were awful, but the Margarita was great. Happy hour is from 5 to 6:30 pm, but you have to sit at the bar, outside or at certain places inside and it's worthwhile. We had the Salt & Pepper... More

So good. Great service and friendly staff. Unusual menu. I had the Good Things Growing plate. Everything on it was a taste sensation delight. The butternut squash and corn cake were amazing. The mushroom and tofu skewer was also very tasty. Huge portion. I left with a scrumptious doggie bag. My companions both had the Anticucho boards platter with the... More

We went for an early dinner, getting the three course meal for $30 each. Quite the deal. I truly expected each of the courses to be somewhat smaller versions of the same dishes on the a la carte menu - NOPE! Each dish was huge. We couldn't finish our entrees and took enough home to have lunch the following day.... More
