I was absolutely delighted with our visit to Indigo. The food was of a very high standard and the beef was superbly cooked. The timing worked perfectly for a pre theatre meal and it was located close to a number of major theatres. An excellent ambiance and great service by very friendly staff. All the dishes were dairy free which was perfect for my wife who is on a low fat diet. We shall certainly return when we are next in the West End. I have already recommended the restaurant to others. Without doubt a five star experience!

Delicious food, we all had the set menu, and it was a joy to be able to order anything and not worry about gluten or dairy! Every dish we had (3 of us) was absolutely delicious. The setting on the mezzanine is very nice, and it was quiet when we visited (pre-theatre).

Lovely, modern restaurant, nice ambiance. staff very friendly and professional. food was superb especially as everything was gluten free, it was nice to be able to eat without worrying about cross contamination etc., The bread was the only thing not very good, my husband did not appreciate at all. Although not on the menu, staff made every effort to provide lovely cheese for my husband. had a surprise little cake as it was our wedding anniversary, lovely touch. the wine wasn't overly expensive but the coffee was, single espresso 2 sips exactly at £5.50! I still would recommend this restaurant, wish there were more like it!

There were 3 people in our party. When we visited the restaurant had only been open again for one week after a refit.

I am coeliac so it was great to go somewhere and know I could order anything off the menu. That said, I also don't eat nuts or onions so that further limited my choice. We all had different starters and mains, we all enjoyed them, and certainly my main course of asparagus with poached egg and mushrooms was particularly worthy of mention. However we all felt that all portions were on the small side and the cost was on the high side. We didn't have desserts but there were some fantastic looking ones brought to the table nearest ours. There is space around the tables, crisp white table cloths and serviettes on them, and the waiting staff were plentiful with just the right amount of attentiveness. I'd recommend for special occasions.

The Indigo had been pen for only a week following a lengthy refurbishment. Pleasant ambiance if a little clinical. Went for a pre-theatre meal. Interesting table d’hote menu and a limited a la carter gave sufficient choice and the food was well presented, tasty and satisfying. Service almost over the top but very attentive if not speedy. Recommend and we will return.

Loved this restaurant, relaxing atmosphere. Excellent friendly, helpful service. I have coeliac disease and require gluten free food, the restaurant is 100% gluten free, so felt completely safe. The food is delicious with plenty of choice. My husband who is non coeliac could not tell any difference. Would definitely return

Nice location and food was nice enough but nothing special. All the food is both gluten free and dairy free which means the menu is rather limited and would be better to serve a wider range of foods. This was especially noticed on dessert where there is a choice of 3 options. It is relatively expensive for portion sizes you get.

Service was an issue. We ordered 2 beers which took 10 minutes to come and then came separately. My wife also doesn't like peas so asked for no mushy peas with the fish and chips but it was delivered with the fish on the bed of mushy peas. It got sent back and we got a fresh one and they deducted it off the bill but if the service was better this could have been avoided.

I'm coeliac, non-dairy and egg, so to be able to find a "proper" restaurant in which I don't have to really worry about my allergies and intolerances is an absolute dream. Add to that amazing food, excellent, attentive service and great ambience in a spectacular location - what more could you want? I will be returning.

Highly recommend. The food was delicious and it was a worth while fine dining experience. Top quality food & service. Lovely venue. Some of us had dairy intolerance, some gluten, some could eat anything. We all ate top quality food and loved it all. One person had extra food intolerances (which we notified in advance) and the kitchen could accommodate.

Day 2 after reopening and they are still working out a few minor details, but overall it was wonderful food and the service was impeccable. I felt guilty getting the fish and chips in such nice surroundings, but quickly realized I was hardly alone. The chicken terrine was one of the best I have had.

The food is gluten and dairy free. I had battered cod with triple cooked chips and mushy peas. The fish was cooked to perfection and the batter very good for gluten free. The chips however were poor! Two of my three companions also had chips and were very disappointed with them. They were very hard on the outside and dry inside! We did tell the waiter to pass this information on to the kitchen.

Just required a quick evening dinner before going to the theatre. From arrival in the hotel foyer and throughout the meal the staff were great. They took our coats, took the meal order and provided efficient service throughout the meal.
The food was pleasant, I had the beer battered fish and chips that looked very nice but the cod was a little bland.
Nevertheless would be happy to return again in the future.

Fantastic food and great service. If you are looking for a lovely place for a special occasion for gluten free dining, this place is perfect. Strong wine list, great selection of meat, fish and vegetarian/vegan options and good service without being overbearing.

I can definitely recommend this place and look forward to going back when it reopens in Spring - it is closing after Christmas for a makeover!
