Diner Reviews
  • "This is a great place to meet friends for happy hour, lunch, or to celebrate a special occasion over dinner. The staff are really friendly and they have a wonderful wine selection. The restaurant itself is nicely decorated and fits the theme of a wine bar quiet well."

  • "Celebrating 2 birthdays! Asked to be seated on the patio and was ignored. Food was slow to come out and was cold. Have been to this restaurant a few times and it will be a while before we consider going back."
    Dined on 8/12/2014
  • "We were told to come here by a colleague and he was right! Excellent wine flights with informative descriptions. The Ahi guacamole is not to be missed! Excellent chocolate fondue and good coffee -- even the decaf, which the waiter made a fresh strong pot for me."

  • "We were seated in the back room and had a great time catching up with relatives we hadn't seen for a while. Great atmosphere, not too loud to talk and the food/wine topped off the evening. Thanks!"

  • "The food and drink are always great at the Indulge restaurant. Golden is lucky to have them. The service left a bit to be desired the last time we were in for dinner."

  • "Very good food, spotty service. For the price, everything should be done correctly."

  • "We usually only go to Indulge for happy hour and always had a good experience. So, thought we'd try it for lunch. The food tasted just fine and the service was excellent. However, we were just a little surprised at how little food you got for the price. So, all in all, an okay experience...however, prices were a little high for what you got."

  • "The food was very good ( I had veal) The server was attentive but not pushy. Our friends from Littleton enjoyed it as well. A nice night out"
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "The wine choices are few at Indulge. They overcharge for a decent glass but don't have delicious , creative food to support pricey wine. There is no seafood on the menu besides shrimp. Indulge needs to create a seafood menu to entice a health conscious foodie."

  • "The food used to be so much better before they changed chefs. Such a bummer."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Being my first time in Golden, we selected Indulge. Impressive wine list and more impressive is the number of wines by the glass. If you're in the area or headed to Red Rocks for a concert, start the evening off by heading to this place!"
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "Disappointed to find the only American wines were from CA. Missing so many well known Washington state wines."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "My sweetie and I often go to Indulge because Golden has so few good restaurants. But it was so LOUD last night that I could not even hear her when she talked! It's a cramped, noisy environment. Food is adequate but nothing great. Prices are high. My guess about the source of the problem is that they've simply put too many tables into their limited space."
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "We've been on several occasions before going to Miner's Alley Playhouse. It's great. Food is interesting and tasty. Service is friendly. Wine list is impressive for a neighborhood restaurant. A little expensive. "
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "this place was gorgeous inside. very chic and pretty inside! wine was great and food was too! i'll definitely come back when in the area! seems like a diamond in the rough in the neighborhood since a lot of the surrounding restaurants were more bar food, pizza, mexican, etc. great for a date night, bar hang out with friends, birthday dinner, something a little nicer, etc. you'll love it!"
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "From the moment you walk in, the ambiance and welcome makes you feel that it is going to be a pleasurable experience. The service is excellent and the lunch menu has enough to choose from for everybody's taste. The food is delicious and presented really nicely. I am definitely going back and recommend this restaurant highly. "

  • "My husband and I were not expecting much from the Golden area when it comes to food (especially gluten-free). We enjoyed our appetizers and salads, found the ambience to be lively, and the service warm and friendly. Next time we are in the Golden area, we will dine here again."

  • "Have been to Indulge many times and have always loved their food. Unfortunately, they have changed their menu for the worse. Half of our table couldn't even decide what to order because the dishes did not sound appealing. We all wound up settling on burgers and flatbreads. The flatbread was ok; the burgers were good. We were excited to get the burrata appetizer, but it was not burrata - just stuffed mozzarella and not delicious. After our meal, our server did mention that they can make some of the old items if you request them (how would we know). Thank goodness the wine is still good! I would go for happy hour, but sadly I think dinner is out of the question going forward. "
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "We were seated in the back of the restaurant, and it was great til a large table were seated behind us, and then it became very loud. I would try for a different table another time. The cheese plate was nice, but for the price should have had a varsity of crackers, and maybe one more cheese, but what was presented was good. The crab cakes were just ok. Was a little pricey for the quantity and quality, but overall pretty good. "
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "Indulge is an average restaurant. It stays busy because there is nowhere else to go in Golden. The wine list needs help. Wines by the glass are overpriced. The menu offers very little for vegetarians or those who love fish. There is not even a salmon on the menu and tuna is awful. Indulge needs to improve. No question about it. "
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "Slow service and an overdone burger- we Thought they would take it off the bill since our daughter didn't even eat it and it was obviously overdone. Was better when I had lunch here with a group. "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "A group of 8 dined on May 10th for a pre-Mother's Day dinner and were not enthused with the dining experience at Indulge. Indulge was selected based on very good experiences from previous visits, but this visit did not match previously set expectations. Items that did not meet our expectation included an updated limited selection menu, food quality bar prices and service level. Our party ended up only ordering burgers because they found no other appealing menu options. Across the party we have over 20 visits and we were all surprised at the limited menu. Our server was unattentive and plates were not cleared quickly and over charged on (house) mistakes on drink orders. "

  • "Our favorite place to go in Golden for a nice dinner, happy hour or late night stop. Exceptional food, great wine selection, wonderful service from friendly staff!! "
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "had reservations for dinner, kind of empty when we gat there, sat us at end of section with tables for 2- which was fine, but then when next person came in they sat them right next to us in table for 2 when there were at least 6-8 table for 2 in the row of table - very poor seating plan and made it very to have conversation - they could have at least sat person 2 tables down - would be fine if it was full but not when empty - very poor planning, I don't care if people have reservations or not - which was the excuse. Food is good, great for lunch, especially out doors on patio during warm months, but dinner choices are very limited, need more choices, and should include things like salad, considering the price for dinner"

  • "No matter when we go to this restaurant, brunch, lunch or dinner, the food is always good. It is our favorite place to take out of town guests."

  • "We were staying in a hotel across the and felt like a nice meal. We looked at open table and Indulge fit the bill from a "should we try it point of view". We did and is great. I had the veal saltamboca and my wife a had the sock eye salmon. Both of us were overwhelmingly pleased. We were giving suggestion to a coupl who had sat down as we were leaving. When we come back through Golden we will be there again! "

  • "As usual, the food and service here were wonderful. We sat at the bar tables and met some great folks from Seattle as well as a couple that lives close to us. Everyone was having a great time and really enjoyed the appetizers, dinner specials and wine. Several tables around us ordered the awesome chocolate fondue. Jeremy and Darrell are the best bartenders!"

  • "Indulge (Golden) has become my favorite meeting place on the west side. Whether for a business lunch or late night..this is the place. Of course it is easier to get seated for lunch! The food, the ambiance, the wonderful wine list and non-intrusive staff all makes for a most enjoyable experience. I highly recommend Indulge!"

  • "Went for Easter brunch where they had a special 3 course offering and wine flights. Food was tasteless, halibut was dry and desert was awful. Truly a very disappointing experience! The bruschetta my daughter ordered was like concrete -- she could not bight into it. Her flatbread was burned and the waitress spilled wine all over our table. Two days later we checked our charges on American Express and found they double charged us. Called the restaurant and was told I would have to speak to the general manager who was not in. I have not received a call from the general manager yet. "

  • "We love Indulge! It is like going to Denver, without leaving Golden. The service is great and they allowed us to share an entree which is nice because then we can order an app, entree and dessert without feeling like it was too much food."

  • "A great addition to downtown Golden - we always make it a point to treat our graduating student to this yummy and delicious fare. Since they opened 3 +/- years ago, we have eaten there at least 12 times - when we are visiting. Wine selection is outstanding, entrees awesome - and tuna guacamole is a must-have."
