Indulge Bistro and Wine Bar - Golden Ratings and Reviews
My family and I were visiting Golden for a short time and wanted to find a comfortable restaurant with "low key" but excellent food choices. Indulgence was perfect. We all enjoyed our favorite foods. The atmosphere was superb and the look of the restaurant was great. We will recommend Indulgence to our friends who visit Golden.
The prices are far too high for the standard of food that they're serving. We were very disappointed, and dare I say, embarrassed, in front of our friends. The margarita flatbread had a spotty tomato sauce base, sliced tomatoes, not one piece of basil, and zero mozzarella. The Brussels sprouts were very bitter, which is to be expected since it's not the season. The bison burger was great, but not $18.00 great. Our friends had a pasta dish that was around $25 and there were six larger tortellini on the plate. Plate presentation was nice, but there is a lot of room for improvement with the food.
The ambiance is fantastic, but the service was slow. My empty drink went unattended for about 20 minutes. With that said, I should mention that the staff were extremely friendly, which helped.
Indulge Bistro is Adequate; we used to really like it.
Was there a change of Chef? the presentation was lacking.
The Ahi Tuna Guacamole is still wonderful as are the housemate chips.
The smoked salmon salad came with large spears of cooked broccoli draped across one side of the bowl. We needed another plate to cut it up. The Tuscan pork arrived as a very large hunk of pork and a smaller one. We had to request more sauce. The lack beans were overcooked mush.
The dessert -- mango with sticky rice was delicious! Could have used a little larger portion of rice but the mango was absolutely perfectly ripe.
The wine flights are a nice feature. I wish there was one that included both white and red in case your dinner includes both fish and meat.
Restaurant not busy when we arrived in limo @ 5:30 as a pre-Red Rocks dining experience
Service was neglectful upon arrival. Improved with prompting. Service /gratuity charges are astronomical including a $9+ charge on a approx a $ 45 bottle of wine...absurd. Similar experience in the past with neglectful service until prompted
I've been here many times and it has become my "go to" place in Golden when with friends. This time it was people out of town going to a Red Rocks concert and I didn't want to deal with Morrison. Often it has been friends who join us at a Jefferson Symphony concert at the School of Mines and we go to dinner afterwards. I love how laid back it always is and the wait staff is great. The food is good and I always migrate to the salad section as my imagination hasn't been captured too much by the rest of the menu. I've never been disappointed by the food. Perhaps it's a bit pricey for Golden or maybe that's the new Denver metro area. I love it and will be back.
This is the third time we've been here. The first time my brother and his now-wife had their rehearsal dinner here and it was lovely. Food was excellent and service was great! With this experience in mind I went back for a second time.
This time the food was not great. Had a smoked pork dish which surprisingly was quite tasteless which seems hard to do. Not believing it was now a trend I went back again.
This third time may qualify as one of my worst meals ever and the sentiment was shared with the whole table. We had the House Meatballs to start and enjoyed those. The Tony Soprano flatbread was excellent.
I had the steak salad - overcooked (asked for medium-rare) and tough even though it was a tenderloin. My brothers hamburger was also overcooked and he was not happy with the flavor. The chicken was dry. We also ordered a side of Tator Tots and after eating one discovered that there was not one but two hairs in the tots. We were all completely grossed out.
What contributed to the experience was the incredibly long wait for the appetizers and our main courses. The wait staff that we had were not able to describe the plates as we ordered and had questions. When they went to find out the answer they just never came back. The final straw was when we ordered dessert and after 20 minutes still had not been served. We finally got up and left - attempted to speak to the manager - who did not handle it well. And they still were charging us for the dessert we never got! It was difficult to get a second round of drinks which is always bad for a restaurant.
So all in all our party of four will not be going back which is too bad because two of our party does live in Golden. My advise is to train their wait staff better. Insist on hair nets or short hair (one waiter had big hair hanging down in his face - which after our Tator Tot experience was just gross). This is my first time giving a negative review and not real happy to do it but I want to give the feedback.
First time dining at Indulge. We were attracted by the "Wine Bar" in the name. Very disappointed, however, to discover a surprisingly weak wine list - not a lot of diversity or choices. The menu is also limited with an odd assortment of entrees and not much in the way of a theme. Is this a burger joint that serves wine?
The food was hit or miss, some people liked their entrees better than others. The waitress was extremely rude, when we told her something was off, she stared at us and didn't say anything until we suggested a solution. Beyond that she ignored us for long stretches of time. We wouldn't return, even though the restaurant itself is very cute.
This was our first at Indulge Bistro and WIne Bar and we loved it. We wanted to try something and we're so happy we went there. The dinner and lunch menus aren't huge, but they've got something for everybody. They have an extensive wine and liquor menu. They have a fantastic round bar as you walk in. I had a glass of one of the house wines and it was really good. I plan to go there again next time I have girlfriend lunch or dinner. Oh, did I mention that the wait staff was superb? The prices were very reasonable, so try this place out!
We were kind of a difficult table because we were on the way to a concert at Red Rocks in a limo, and we were feeling no pain already. Our server was very patient and professional with us, even though I could tell we were she wasn't exactly thrilled to have a table of Tom Petty fans.
This restaurant was perfect for my husband and I as he likes more traditional American food such as burgers and fries whist I prefer more international offerings. The menu had a combination of both and also offered nice wine and beers. It is often a case of one or the other.
My seating under the window was supported by lots of large and comfy pillows which as I was quite tired the evening we went suited me fine. We will definitely go back.
What happened? We used to come to indulge all the time for special occasions because it used to be an "Indulge". Now it's just overpriced crappy hamburgers and a barely-there entree selection featuring dry meat and bland sauce. The only winners we had on our visit were the Brussels sprouts and wine. And, let's be honest, wine is hard to screw up, so I'm not awarding any points in that category.
We ate here for Mother's Day brunch. Our reservations were for 11am and we got seated right away. The wait staff was great. The food was great although portions a little small. All in all a great experience and I would like to go again for an evening and some wine.
Iplt would have been preferable to open the doors a little before reservations. Thank you.
Indulge Bistro and Wine Bar was a unique dining experience. It was happy our when we arrived so it was pretty loud inside the restaurant. Lucky for us it was a beautiful evening and we could sit on the patio instead where it was quieter. Our waitress was very attentive, and friendly. We enjoyed the Tuna Tartar and guacamole appetizer with a flight of Pinot Noir wine samples. I love that they offered wine flights so you could sample wines you normally wouldn't order. The special that night was Cod wrapped in prosciutto, with mussels, shrimp and a side of pasta. It was delicious! I will definitely go back!
I loved my flight of three Pinot Grigios.....YUM! We shared mussels and calamari--both were delicious. Our server was very attentive and helpful. My main course was the pork and very good. I had leftovers the next day. I enjoyed the décor, and we all commented on it. Surprisingly busy for a Thursday evening after 8:00 pm.
