Indulge Bistro and Wine Bar - Golden Ratings and Reviews

They screwed up my order, and overcooked my meal. The wait staff was nowhere to be found to ask them to resolve the issue. The place was much emptier than previous visits, so I am wondering if the community has noticed a decline in quality.
We ordered starters only, meatballs, tun ...
We ordered starters only, meatballs, tuna/guacamole, two flat breads and calamari. The calamari was crisp, not oily but the pieces were chunks. The sauces for the meatballs (mustard, marinara, stroganoff) were good but the meatballs themselves were cooked to golf ball status. As for the flat breads, they were essentially pizza crust and could be thinner. The tuna/guacamole was very good. As for the wine selection--fairly good range-although not extensive, but wine list included wines, labels but not vintage? strange. The service was off with our original waiter appearing very disheveled, replaced by another who stated that the initial server was taken ill and sent home. However, as we paid our bill the original server was still working but only in another section of the restaurant. Overall the service was adequate.

We came into Indulge with three children 8-12 yrs and two adults. There were only a couple of tables in the restaurant and a few outside so it was not busy at 7pm on aMonday night. Needless to say service was slow from beginning to end. The kids all had burgers so greasy that they all were uncomfortable. The chicken on the gnocchi dish was visibly black from charring yet raw inside. The only good thing was the salad my friend ordered. A big red flag was the fact that it is supposed to be a wine bar and there should have been full displays of wine on the walls. The racks were 3/4 empty which to appearances is a failing or closing business . My friend who is local will never be back, nor will I.

Best of Golden. This place is fun and lively. Action packed bar scene, lots of fun people, fun food, nice waitress. I took my son and his wife there for birthday dinner and they loved it. A real lively feeling and they thought the food choices were excellent. Wines a on the expensive side but food is reasonable.

Here is an email that I sent to the restaurant after my recent visit. The restaurant did not respond.
Let me begin by saying that overall my wife and I had a very fine meal at Indulge last night. The food was good, and our waitress was fantastic. However, we did experience a couple of items that I want to share.
First, upon arriving for a 6:15 reservation we gave our name to the hostess and she clearly was not having a good night or does not enjoy her job; there was nothing pleasant about her demeanor. She wasn’t rude, but also not friendly. Throughout the dinner, my wife commented about the look on the hostesses face each time she walked past seating patrons. Her expression never changed, never smiled, and always looked as though she wanted to be somewhere else, anywhere else. Maybe she was simply having a bad night.
The food was good, but my wife finished only about half the entree, which is normal for her. Our waitress was great and had it wrapped in foil. When we left the restaurant we made it just the end of the block when we realized that we left the foil-wrapped entree. We returned five minutes later to be told that it had been tossed. It’s not a big deal, but it seems logical that a restaurant would wait a little longer before throwing out someone’s leftovers; I am sure we are not the first people to accidentally walk out the door and forget something.
Again, as I stated from the start that overall we had a pleasant meal, and will probably return again, but figured if something isn’t said then nothing improves.

Went to Indulge twice within a week. Everything was great with the exception of burgers. The first night I ordered a burger and the second visit my daughter did. Mine was undercooked and hers was way overcooked. Everything else was great and the atmosphere is fantastic.

Golden is cute. Indulge is right smack in that cuteness.
Request to sit in that small spot with the high chairs to your left as you walk in. By the window if possible. It's cozy but you will look good here.
Warm decor. Trendy but comfortable. Outside sitting during warmer weather. Expect a festive vibe.
Walked in without a reservation on a weekday night. Looked busy but we scored "the spot" I was referring to above. Now the food. I know, I know. This is a wine bar. The food simply become foremost in mind when it is that good. I had the New York Strip with fries. $32. Don't worry about the price. The portion is good. The taste makes it all worth the worries:) it is very good. Seasoned well and tender. All sliced for you. Indulge on this you will like it! Even the fries were good! Crunchy, salty and fresh!
The staff was a winner too. On point with their suggestions and very quick.

We met friends for lunch, all of us choosing something different. The fruit plate and smoked salmon salad came out Beautifully.
The flatbread was a winner and sweet potato fries delicious. The person who ordered the salmon sandwich said it was just ok.
We live in the neighborhood so will definitely be back.

Indulge is a quite, wonderful place for a lite meal and great wine. Located in downtown Golden, Indulge Bistro is a gem in a hustle bustle college and tourist driven town. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Nice place for a date, group get-together or just a quick meal and drink. Indulge yourself at Indulge, you won't regret it!

We have been to Indulge for happy hour and thought we would enjoy dinner for a special occasion. The menu for dinner was limited and the selection not that special. The food we ordered was good - but I think we will save this place for happy hour only.

This restaurant had some excellently prepared and unusual food choices. The wine was good and well priced, as were the specialty cocktails ordered by some in our party. I thought the location was great for out of town visitors.

We had a steak salad and burger, so didn't get too experimental. We sat outside which was lovely. Our waitress was really nice and helpful and made us feel very relaxed. The food was good and they are open to make adjustments taking things out, adding things etc. I would go back. the dinner menu items seemed a little pricy. And the wine by the glass is expensive so we got a bottle.

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.
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.
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.
