Great view, cute interior, great patio. The crab corn chowder was delicious as was the crab cake sandwich. I would definitely recommend this place.

If you're looking for a gourmet lunch with excellent service, please look elsewhere. However, Inigo Landing is wonderful for a relaxing lunch on an island in the Potomac River gazing over the sights of Washington, as well as planes taking off and landing at Reagan National Airport. My companion and I chose different chicken sandwiches. The fried chicken was undercooked,... More

Four of us enjoyed a late dinner after attending a Nationals game. The service was excellent, the food was very good and the restaurant has a nice atmosphere and location. I had the Seafood Cobb salad which was quite good with a very tasty lemon vinaigrette. My wife had the rockfish special which was fresh and perfectly cooked. They have... More

This place is awesome! If your're looking for a good seafood brunch...you've got to dine at this place. The service, food, and staff were all exceptional. Plus,the view of the marina and planes arriving at Reagan National made for a relaxing evening. Put this on your list of places to visit when in DC.

As some of the other reviews indicate, previously there have been hits and misses with food, service, etc. But this time, Indigo Landing hit all of the right notes for two friends sharing a leisurely catch up lunch. Of course, the view is stellar, but so were our meals, which we shamelessly shared - several appetizers, salads, dessert, etc. -... More

I visited this restaurant with a group of friends for dinner. And while I waitress was very nice, the food was not so good. We went during restaurant week and had the special they were offering. The crab soup was think and contained no noticeable crab. The fish that was offered was some fish I had never heard of and... More

Throughly enjoyed the dinner. Fish is always fresh and cooked to perfection. Short ribs were also cooked to perfection Menu recently changed. Catch of the day is always great. Been there twice in the past 2 months; always excellent.

This restaurant is located immediately south of Reagan National Airport on Dangerfield Island in the Potomac River. It is owned by the National park Service, but operated independently. The views from almost all the tables (particularly outside) are amazing. You can take in the main sights of Washington DC as the immense panorama spreads before you. In the foreground, planes...

Bread took 30 minutes to come out...rest of meal was an hour wait in total. Wasn't even busy. Once received, the filet was WAY overcooked and I then waited for a new one (it was under cooked but i was hungry and ate it anyway). Server would disappear 10-15 mins at a time with no updates on where my food... More

This restaurant has a lot going for it. It's convenient to DC, plenty of free parking, awesome views of DC over the Potomac River and a good bar. And the food is basically OK if you order carefully and manage your expectations. If the food were a bit better, I would give them 4 stars
