They have reasonable good food but the service we got is pathetic at best and one of the waiters was clearly not very polite. It is clearly not a cheap restauran and at that price range ($50 per person), it is one of my worst restaurant experiences. We were also told that if the bill is split more than five ways among our group members, then their computer would crash - that is the worst excuse I ever heard.
We were in a group with kids and we asked before entering if it is okay to go with kids. We were given the impression that kids are very welcome. However, it took them 10 minutes to arrange and sit us in a half empty restaurant. The waiter who served us was clearly not feeling being polite.
After dinner we want the bills split, but we were told that if they split the bill more than five ways then their computer system would crash. This is the worst excuse I heard, especially when we were paying about $40-50 per person.
It took them about half an hour to figure out and process the bill.
Our overall experience was simply pathetic.
This place was o-kay. We only went to the lounge area so I can only speak on that. The crowd seemed a lot older than I expected (30+) and it gets really crowded around 10pm. We ordered this pizza they have on the menu and it was really tasty. We also ordered drinks that where average. Over all this place was just average and I may or may not go there again.
I absolutely love Inde Bleu. The chef, Vikram, is among the very best in all of Washington, DC and is known for cooking up combinations that will send your palette soaring. The 'Duo of Burgers' (formerly known as the Rishi Burgers) are a must if you visit ... delectable miniature burgers with a mixture of meats that will make you wish they offered it as a full-fledged burger. The atmosphere is funky, warm and very, very hip. Reservations are really a must if you want to eat at a table or in the lounge. I've been reading reviews about the cost -- yes, Inde Bleu is not a cheap meal by any means, but it is also not your typical Washington, DC place to visit either. Think New York ... you simply have to go. It continues to be one of my favorite restaurants in the city and I have eaten at MANY of them. Give it a try.
The food was interesting, but not exceptional and if you do not select the $85.00 per person prix fixe menu, the choices are limited. The service, touted as one of the best around the City, was below expectations and really less than acceptable. An example is that they will not let you transfer a bar tab to your table, valet parking is an extra $15.00, the bar was not willing to make change, wait-staff was a bit arrogant and hovered waiting to leave the bill. The drinks are fun, but not worth the minimum $12.00 pricetag. Disappointing.
I honestly do not understand the hype behind this restaurant. I agree with the reviews to only drink at the bar and keep your distance from the main dining area. It took over 20 minutes for our waiter to approach us after we were seated. We then had to wait for a wine menu for another 5 after asking. The timing of the kitchen was off and the service was deplorable. After being served our first course we waited over an hour without our waiter checking in us before we received our main course. My husband got the salmon and it was not fresh and overcooked. Even the sweet glaze that was washed over the salmon did not disguse the awful taste. As for my spiced strip of beef it was extremely fatty and not cooked to my request. Overall I would highly recommended staying away from Indebleu. The timing of the kitchen if off, the service is mediocore, and the food does not leave you with an impression at all.
