Lovely atmosphere, great food and service. I had the happy hour chardonnay which was very good but I was surprised at the $16 price for a happy hour wine. Flatbreads were very good and large serving.

I would have loved the option of half glasses of wines and was surprised a wine bar doesn’t offer various pours. Even a 9 oz would have been a good option. Sometimes, two glasses is too much but one is not quite enough over the course of a meal.

Overall, enjoyable evening.

Overall, a C minus experience. For a wine bar, they didn't have a very good wine list...lots of grocery store stuff. The server also didn't say anything at all about the wine list...no recommendations or anything. Our server didn't say much of anything beyond "drinks?" and "some food?". Speaking of food, it was decent but really nothing spectacular. Cheese board had trail mix and pretty bland cheese with a rolled up wad of meats on it...the kind of thing you'd throw together at home but not what you'd expect at a restaurant charging $30 for it. Flatbread was fine, but kind of bland. We didn't even realize they sent us the wrong one at first because the cheese overwhelmed. I probably wouldn't go back except for happy hour.

We went for a Sunday brunch. Sat outside. the waiter was attentive to our needs. Menu is adequate. We both chose savory dishes. the omelettes were fine, but no condiments for the toast that accompanied the dish. Bloody Mary was just okay. The experience was not overwhelmingly awesome, but the opportunity to eat breakfast outside, after church, suited our needs just fine. We are planning a return Sunday brunch day soon.

Second time recently that our entrees came out while we were still having our appetizers. But it was a busy Friday night both times and everything else was good. This won’t keep us from coming back but I’m hoping their kitchen and seating management gets back to normal.

Busy for a Thursday night, both inside and out. Excellent wine selection, pretty reasonable prices per glass.
Was a bit surprised the staff didn't mask up, but few in the restaurant were either.
We enjoyed the whole meal and ambiance and will put this on our short list...

Staff great as usual, but the music was so loud we couldn't hear.each other indoors. She turned it down a tiny bit but it was still blasting. We had to move outdoors as a result. Because of this we will probably never come back.

The gluten free flatbread is incredibly, a soft crust. The mussels were really good as well. The service the last two times we have gone to the Highlands Ranch location has not been the best. The first server was not confident and the second one lacked enthusiasm.

Once again our experience at Indulge was very good! We had the meatballs and two flatbreads and they were amazing.

We got to taste a variety of wines suggested by Shannon and between him and Katie's (our server) recommendations, we all found wines and food we were very happy with.

We will be back!

We were seated right next to the bar at a table that was practically in a doorway with heavy foot traffic. Our waiter was the bartender and after taking our drink and food order and bringing us our drinks, he never came back to our table to check on us or the food or ask if we wanted another cocktail. The food was just mediocre. We only saw the bartender at our table when he brought us our check. Will not be back at Indulge in Highlands Ranch again!

Hi Liz, I am so sorry to hear you did not have a great experience at Indulge Highlands Ranch. That is definitely not our standard of service. Friday night was an extremely busy night and unfortunately we did not have enough staff. Still trying to staff up again from Covid. I would like to try to make this right. If you would be interested, please email me at delinda@indulgewinebar. Again, my sincere apologies. Delinda (Owner)

Date night, seated next to a table of ladies with an unhappy infant. I love babies but wish restaurants would separate families from childless couples. Had 2 wine and the charcuterie board, more meat than cheese. It was fine. Bill was $120, thought that was steep given we didn’t have dinner. Not sure if we will go back. Service was good.

I ordered sparkling water, a side salad and an app. Husband ordered a sparkling water, an app and a dinner salad. We asked for the side salad/his app to be served first followed by my side/his salad. My side salad came before the sparkling waters showed up and we had to remind our server to bring them. I wasn’t done with my salad when everything else showed up all at once. They just plopped all the plates down on our tiny table. Then, our waters showed up. My side (roasted Brussels sprouts and bacon) weren’t roasted. They were barely cooked. My husband’s salmon salad had the tiniest piece of fish we’ve ever seen. Then they tried to clear our plates before we were done. And were very insistent on taking them - I finally had to tell them to just leave everything until we were done. I get that restaurants are still ramping back up and they may have new staff to train…but we won’t be going back there anytime soon.

I don't EVER want to slam a small business during these trying times...BUT! Despite great ambiance, very good food and servers that really tried, the place was HOT! Even after we asked twice about the heat, it never got cooler. We were sweating! The prices were insultingly high. No wonder it was empty. You can't win back customers with ridiculous pricing and poor comfort levels (temperature wise. Get it fixed!) Sorry. I would only go back to sit on the patio for the great mountain views...maybe nurse one glass of wine. Off my list until they make improvements.

Our only complaint was that one of the dishes came out and was not heated through completely. Our waiter took care of this but it did mean that others at the table were nearly finished by the time the other meal came back. Food was good, nonetheless.

Indulge seems to be going downhill. Service was bad- our appetizer and main dish came out together. We split the burger and it was not split when it came to the table. It is getting very noisy - much more so than before. Fatiano’s need to spend some time getting it back to what it once was. We have been going since it opened and are not enjoying it anymore. And $50 for a bottle of Smith and Hook? Come on.
