We found Indigenous on Trip Advisor several years ago while planning a trip to Sarasota and have eaten there every time we've returned. We have never been disappointed. The food is very well conceived and prepared. Service is friendly and knowledgable. The ambience is relaxed and comfortable, set in an adapted home nestled in a side-street neighborhood several blocks east... More

I think they are resting on their past laurels. I was there last year and again last evenkng. The food was ordinary and disappounting. The lamb meatballs were ok but the cobra was lacking in taste. Two of us had the burgers with cheddar cheese. Both thin patties were dry and overcooked. It will not be on my favorite list... More

We were visiting friends in Sarasota for the weekend and they raved about Indigenous. No doubt, they are more than qualified and truly know great food, so we were very excited for our upcoming dinner. When we arrived, we had an exceptional table and service due to being with our friends. I started with the Cobia Tartare and while I... More

By far our best meal of our week in Sarasota! Great atmosphere - our table was in view of the chef's in action. Nicole, our server, was excellent! Seafood/Fish dinner selections were outstanding.

Haven't been here in awhile, so decided to give it a try. Had 8:30 reservations and were running a bit late due to traffic. Called to let them know and we were told they have a strict policy of a last seating at 8:45. We made it just in time and it was well worth it. Service was great and... More

Service is helpful and very knowledgeable. Menu is small but changes every two weeks. All items were delicious interesting and extremely well prepared. This is the best restaurant in Sarasota I have found.... a... More

The fact that Indigenous is in a refurbished house makes the atmosphere cozy. Background music very pleasant. Informal, good service. Not as expensive as we were lead to believe. The wild mushroom bisque was rich and flavorful. They make a savory begniet as an appetizer that any couple could split. Which you should do lest you fill up too fast.... More
