The first time I ate here, I thought the food and service were very good. This time, the place was nearly empty on a Saturday night at 7:00. The food was just ok, and the service was very slow. I won't be returning.

Incredible ahi tuna guacamole. The Napa burger was delicious, but a bit overcooked.
This is probably one of the best restaurants we have been to recently. The service was awesome and the food was great. The desserts were delicious and made from scratch. We will definitely go back.

Limited dinner menu but great apps. Requested deviled eggs listed as a side as an app...awesome! Very pleasant experience.
Gluten Allergy Friendly
I hadn't ever been to Indulge. I really enjoyed my experience. They took care in noting my gluten allergy. They have a separate fryer for the fries (the sweet potato fries were amazing!). My friend and I had a great lunch catching up. The atmosphere was light and open. It was a beautiful spring day. Although we didn't sit on the patio, it looked comfortable and inviting.

Very nice. Interesting menu. Great wine list. Bar service excellent. Thanks Indulge!
Nice local spot
The service was pleasant but very slow. We had theatre tickets and were late to the seating because it took over 30 minutes to get our food. We took our food with us because there wasn't time to eat it after being in the restaurant for 1 hr 15 mins. That was disappointing. The food was definitely worth the price and the wine flights were lovely. I will go back and give it another go to see if the service improves but maybe not if I have somewhere else to be afterwards.
Not enough protein in the dish
Although the food was tasty, there wasn't enough protein in the dish. Tables ares way to close together for any feeling of intimacy (unless you want to listen in your neighbors conversation).

Indulge at Indulge
Indulge is a go-to eatery for those on the west side of Denver - or from anywhere, really. This elegant little gem is a place we find ourselves going to again and again. I prefer the summer menu, but the garlic steak & fries is excellent as is the gnocchi and the burgers. Nice wine list and comfortable surroundings with friendly service.

Didn't mind the noise as much because our group of 6 was definitely contributing!
Fun place with some great dishes
We've forgotten how many times we've gone to Indulge, but we have noticed some improvements in the menu items; and as another recent reviewer stated: It's a 4.5 trending toward a 5 rating. For instance, our appetizers were outstanding: The new crab cake recipe is much better than the old one...full of fresh crab chunks, with the flavor of East Coast Crab Imperial; and the mussels in saffron beer broth were superb...had to get some crostini to sop up some of the broth. The main courses were good, but not on the same level: The Margherite flat bread was good but unremarkable; while the Bourguignon Pot Pie was tasty with two beautiful biscuits in lieu of the traditional crust, but the filling was heavy on gravy and light on beef. The seasonal greens were actually some quite good steamed vegies. The service is always good natured, knowledgeable and efficient; and Monika upheld that standard. The Stoller Pinot Noir was great. We'll surely go back to check on their progress to a 5.

Salty but good.
Waitress said the New York Strip steak was really a NYSS...it was not, probably a sirloin and very grisly. Chicken was too spicy even tho she said it wouldn't be. Beef rib was mostly fat. We had to ask several times for bread. Waitress disappeared and didn't bring a second drink to the table until the end of the meal. The bill was incorrect and had to be redone. Took 3 hours for the meal Feb 28th, 5:30 PM. She was so busy socializing with 3 of the table diners she forgot to get the order of the 4th person! She never asked if we'd like dessert. The whole dinner was terrible.
This was a huge disappointment, the food was pretty tasty but the overall experience left SO much to be desired. For a special occasion this was a horrible pick, we could have had a much better experience at so many other places. Won't be back.

The tuna and guac was great. Great combination of flavors and textures. The mussels were only ok, nothing memorable. The beer selection was really weak, but it is a wine bar.
The recommended dinner menu for Valentin ...
The recommended dinner menu for Valentine's day was amazing.
They had a special menu with a wine pairing for Valentines. The food was excellent and the wine very good. Of course it being Valentines Day it was crowded and a little noisy. Our service was as good as I've ever had. Very attentive for being so busy. If there was one thing that bothered me it was the speed of the courses. Barely finishing one and the next was at the table. For Valentines Dinner we would have preferred to linger more between courses. Sometimes my wife hadn't even finished her wine with one course and the next was already there. It made us feel rushed.
Great food and Wine
I took my girlfriend here for Valentine's Day and as usual the food, wine and service did not disappoint. Our only issue every time we come here is that, the tables in the general seating area are so close together. We're talking a foot or less. This then turns your romantic date for two into a date for four as you can hear what others around you are saying. With that said, most everyone is aware of this and tries to keep their volume down. If they can find some fancy partitions possibly wine themed, I would venture to guess most folks would love this and frequent the place even more. We'll definitely be back but will be sitting in the bar area.
Food and service were excellent
The food and service were excellent. Great wine pairings. Ambiance is chic and trendy. Don't know if it was just for Valentine's, but the tables are too close. Difficult to have a conversation without everyone nearby hearing every word, Would recommend to others for the food and service.
Go to Indulge restaurant
Our first visit to Indulge Bistro was so great we can't wait to go back. We had a Valentine's Day menu that was perfect, so now we want to go back to try their regular menu.

Wonderful! Good wine list. Food was awesome! Modern but cozy atmosphere. Lots of activity in the bar. Very festive. Highly recommended!
Indulge Mgr/Open Table gift certificate
Indulge restaurant(Golden CO) mgr refused to make any effort toward sorting out an issue with redeeming an Open Table gift certificate. Not only was he dismissal in his cooperation but he was in fact rude in his interaction regarding the problem. Ultimately one Individual in our party contacted Open Table & resolved the issue with great cooperation & ease by Open Table. The moral to the story: I have used Open Table with great success & perhaps a review of their proprietors regarding gift certificates needs to be addressed. I will happily continue to use Open Table however even tho I much enjoy Indulge restaurant including the food & the service, the relationship, due to the manager, is tenuous at best.
A gem in downtown Golden
We were greeted and seated immediately by cheerful front-desk staff. Don't go without a reservation on a Friday night unless you want to sit at the very attractive and busy bar. the space is well-designed, contemporary, but with all hard surfaces and tight tables, it's noisy and not a romantic setting. The menu is varied, interesting and well-executed. Their cioppino was a wonderful variation on the usual stew It was presented as a plate of well-arranged shellfish and cod, sitting on top of, rather than immersed in, a base of nicely spiced and slightly spicy tomato-based sauce. The Salmon Nicoise won't be mistaken for the original you'd order in la Vielle Ville in Nice, but it presented a well-thought mixture of buttery, not overly-salted nova lox, tarragon, and small, well-trimmed greens. Nicely done. Well-worth a visit, this is a restaurant for downtown Golden to celebrate. Just pass on it for Valentine's Day.

Staff friendly and knowledgeable. Rebecca was a great waitress and was helpful in making our selections
Good Golden Dining
Great vibe, good food, pleasant staff. Unfortunately, our food took longer than one would expect to be served.
A star in Golden
Our server was top notch. We lacked for nothing the whole night but at the same time, we weren't smothered. I probably wouldn't get the tuna app again as it was more guac than tartar but the bison burger, calamari, drinks and service as I mentioned are definitely worth the money. Very happy with this Golden spot!
Good food. Parking could be a challenge in the busy summer months
Gluten Free Find
My wife needs a gluten free diet. Most of the items on the menu are gluten free or can be made gluten free. My wife loves coming here everytime.
Our go-to wine bar
This has become our fav place to go to with out of town guests and special occasions, as well as beautiful summer/fall/spring nights to enjoy great wine, great service, and great food.
A little disappointed in the food this time...
This is the second time I have gone to Indulge Wine Bar and Bistro for lunch. It was really quiet...not very busy. It is not my favorite lunch restaurant; I much prefer their happy hour offerings and prices.
The service was fantastic!

Went for a friends 30th birthday and we were seated in the smaller private room! Great food, great atmosphere and we had a blast! Plus our service was fantastic! We will definitely be back!
Most Sophisticated Spot to Bring Customers in Area
This is the perfect venue for a customer lunch. The good is good, not great, and limited at lunch - but is the most sophisticated among the local options. The service is always impeccable. They have good burgers, salads and flatbreads for lunch. Adding a few entrees from the dinner menu would be my only suggestion. But if you're looking for their existing lunch items, you can't go wrong!
