My teen-aged daughter and I went to Indulge for a girls night. The waiter was experienced and very attentive. The food was delicious and served timely. This has not been my prior experience so I was thrilled to see the change. They also seemed to add either more or better entrees to the menu--beyond the flatbreads and burgers--this was also a welcomed change. I would definitely go again and look forward to it. My only complaint is they don't include vintage years on the wine menu. They would be taken much more seriously as a wine bar if vintages were published.

When we first arrived, my husband and I were a little worried about the prices. Google stated " $ " so we weren't expecting $20 burgers. We stayed anyway, and I am SO happy we did! Absolutely amazing food. My gosh, I have e not been that satisfied with a burger and fries in a long time. 10/10 will visit again. And ask for Nicole, she was so sweet, so kind, and provided ace service. A MUST visit restaurant.

Our server was not attentive and I had to go looking for her twice during the meal. I had ordered a cup of bisque and everyone at the table heard me but she didn't and I had to find her to get my soup. She was very slow bringing the check to pay for our meal.

I would have given the experience a 5 for service based on the server during our meal. However, we had a reservation through open table, but came early. We informed the hostess we were there early and sitting at the bar. Later that night, I had a voicemail from them stating I was late for the reservation and to please call and let them know if we were coming. I called them and explained we had been there earlier and already eaten. They said no problem, they would make note. However, they reported us as a no-show to Open Table, in spite of us telling them both before and after we ate that we had eaten at the bar early. I received an email from Open Table notifying me that I had broken the no-show policy, which I had not...

We had an excellent server, Lucas, who was able to help the vegan in our party navigate the menu. He was well-informed, and the vegan in our group had a lovely, tasty meal. Another in our party was gluten-free and had many options available.

First, let me say that we frequent Indulge and we will continue to patronize it. They have a fabulous Happy Hour and their appetizers are great. Saying that, this experience was very dissapointing. We ordered 2 salads, planning on splitting them both. The Salmon salad was close to inedible. The salmon had no seasoning but so much mayonaisse that the salmon was lost. No other part of the salad was seasoned either. The steak salad was better but it was served in a very small bowl with large slices of steaks on top and a coupe of pieces of plain bread stuck on the side. The steak was near impossible to cut in the small bowl and there was no place to put the bread to attempt to eat the salad. It would have been nice if the bread had been toasted or something to make it not look like an afterthought. We ended up sharing the steak salad. The waitress ( who was charming and attentive), noticed that the salmon salad had not been touched but did not offer to take it off of our bill or replace it with something else.
This was a very off night for indulge. We will go back again, hoping it was just a one-off.

Decent spot in Golden for a cocktail and dinner. I just had the calimari as I was not all that hungry and for $14 it was definitely nothing to write home about. Overall over priced but a decent atmosphere.

The service was excellent, very nice place. The only issue was with the kichens' ability to temp the meat. We had a steak and a burger. Steak was ordered medium and came out rare. On the refire it came back medium rare. The burger was ordered mid rare and came out seriously rare. The sides were excellent.
The charcuterie was outstanding.
Overall a good experience.

Second time and this time for New Years Eve--our server was super nice and helpful. However we were only given the special new years menu and then saw others around us ordering off the other menu! I wish we had known this as the new years menu was too limited and I would have preferred using the other one. I also asked for a quiet spot and at first it was okay, but then the tables are too close together and we had very noisy neighbors.
Recommend being prepared for the noise or sitting in a better place---the food is very good though.

Generally go for Happy Hour - decided to go for New Years Eve dinner - As with many restaurants, they have little to no vegetarian choices, so I can't rate much of the food.
What I did manage to put together for a vegan dish was good - the hummus dish (which I often have at Happy hour) is WONDERFUL....they have a large wine selection and I've never had a bad wine there. Wait staff was friendly and our food came out in a reasonable time frame.

Very creative menu, reasonably priced, delicious! It was really refreshing to find so many unique menu choices. We loved everything we ordered. Special kudos to the pastry chef for her chocolate cherry cheese cake! We were just visiting the area or we would surely make this a regular dining spot.

Just so so this last Saturday afternoon. The steak salad and the salmon salad were not up to par. The Steak salad had mushy grilled onions in it, cucumbers and a lot of stuff that make it really watery and horrible. No blue cheese like I remember and a big disappointment. The salmon salad was also not up to par. Maybe Saturdays there is a different cook but it was way below what it normally is.

I eat at Indulge several times a year. Happy Hour is always great. Yesterday was the first time I was truly disappointed in lunch. I chose not to make a fuss as it was a business lunch.
My $18 salad left much to be desired. The meat was either so tough you could not cut it or the knife provided was so dull you could not cut it.

I will not be returning for lunch.

We have had many good experiences at Indulge but this one was not the best. We ordered gluten free flat bread and the server brought the regular kind. When we mentioned it he seemed indifferent. The steak we ordered was very good. I think this was a service issue as most of our experiences have been very good here.

While our waiter was nice, that was about all the restaurant had going for it. The wine was served warm, the bruschetta didn't have fresh ingredients but rather an odd tasting tomato paste on average bread, and the prosciutto pizza was very cheesy, salty and overcooked. Overall, the worst meal we had in Golden.

Good for a drink and snacks. Mains are basically burgers and flatbreads. More of a wine bar than a restaurant.

We have been there numerous times. We were trying to get a party of 6 but couldn't so we book a 4 and a 2 top. When we arrived they tried putting us near each other but the hostess said they couldn't do any better. Once I asked for the manager they were able to help us which I do really appreciate it since I was bringing two families that travel to Denver frequently. Our boys go to Colorado School of Mines so we are in for all the football games.
I was truly glad the manager was able to help us. It would have been disappointing if we couldn't sit together especially since when we arrived the restaurant was empty. Thank you Indulge we will be back in two weeks.

Went for dinner and loved the appetizer and entrees. Music was great and on par with the atmosphere. It made for an enjoyable time. Only drawbacks were the cramped seating arrangements and our dessert selection ( which was gluten free). Hard to make a good gluten free brownie! Bit on the pricey side but well worth the trade off showed in the quality of preparation.

Had lunch with a friend. Love the ambiance and friendless! Wait staff helped in meeting allergy needs and was so friendly! Would like to see more GF options including GF beers as you could get them from Holidaily and Brewery Rikoli locally. Meal was great, but a little pricey for lunch. However, I was able to eat safely and that is worth a few extra dollars! Highly recommend to go here and I will be back!

Cool food served, over done meat, sometimes inattentive wait staff, and forgot to offer dessert. The restaurant is going downhill, it seems like each time. This is probably the last visit. Too bad, we are local and want good local restaurants.
