    I had an anniversary at Shine yesterday- we shared a cod sandwich (amazing!!), sweet potato fries (yum!) and a kale salad. We had great service and were treated like royalty!! We also had a reset button and cookie dough truffles for dessert- it was absolutely a treat! Thank you Jennifer for such a delightful lunch and for taking such good care of us!

    Shine was busy the night we went in. Water was already on the table when we were seated which was great. Staff might be short at the moment however, as the pace of the meal was a little off. Our drinks arrived half way through the appetizers. We sat near the kitchen door and could witness behind the scene. While some staff (our waitress included) were racing around, others were far more stationary. The food always impresses. The cheesecake was outstanding. We will return.

    This is a favorite restaurant of mine. It is relatively quiet, interesting and delicious food choices, and the potions (drinks) are imaginative, tasty and healthy. Be sure to try different items on the menu - all the ones I have tried are very good. But be absolutely sure to get the sweet potato fries. Easy to park.

    Had a wonderful experience at Shine Restaurant & Potion Bar. I was hosting a group of clients and colleagues for a business dinner. The atmosphere was conducive to business discussions while also being fun and unique. All of the out-of-town guests commented how much they enjoyed the overall Boulder experience. Our server Nicole was friendly, attentive and super knowledgeable about Shine’s unique offerings (most especially the yummy Potions).

    Was in on Feb 19 for lunch. It was freezing the entire time. Beautiful place. Good food. Good service. The cheese and tomato confit sandwich with a cup of soup was a very small lunch. The new 2020 Potion drink (purple) was quite sweet and reminded me strongly of grape kool aid. Not my favorite.

    We had a lovely evening at Shine. We were warmly greeted at the door by one of the Blissful Sisters. The food was delicious and fresh. They are so thoughtful in how they source their ingredients. The pace of the meal was relaxed. And, the service was friendly.

    Shine is my new favorite restaurant. The sweet potato fries are the best in every way! I also like the crispy chicken and the pesto that comes with the burger. Oh, and the mushroom soup is delicious. I have many food restrictions, but I can eat here and eat so much on their menu. The wait staff is so friendly and helpful. The food arrives fast, so there is no long wait. I don't feel rushed though because they make it easy for you to sit and enjoy yourself as long as you like.

    We had friends visiting from Scotland and they were gluten free. We were very happy everything on the menu is gluten free! I had the miso soup noodle bowl and it was terrific. My friend asked what a biscuit was, because to them a biscuit is a cookie. He ordered that and loved it. Only minor drawback? Hard to find!

    Amazing restaurant for a Celiac like me, but even for a people who can eat gluten. I always love to get their biscuits since it's tough to find a GF biscuit, and theirs is delicious--especially with the Sweet potato spread in place of butter and their delicious jam. I also got a fabulous salad. You can't go wrong!

    The menu is strange with their potions and bizarre descriptions but that makes it all the more fun! Went there with a European and she was delighted that the portion sizes were reasonable. If you are looking to get a big meal, this place isn't for you. But a delicious light salad and appetizer with friends and a funky cocktail or two, Shine is perfect.

    We were very disappointed. The service was extremely slow and they lost our credit card for some time after collecting it with the bill. The food was unexceptional and the prices quite high. It was very noisy and the waitress was very soft spoken. Seating took some time and the hostess seemed quite overwhelmed. We will not return.

    I love the food at Shine because I can eat several entries and the food is cooked to perfection. I like the overall clean food and interesting choices. I love the sweet potato fries! Our waitress was so sweet and accommodating that it was so easy to relax. I really liked that when I went into the restroom, it didn't have all the powerful air fresheners assaulting my nose. Thank you for such a thoroughly good experience.

    Very small portions for the expensive menu prices. Don’t accept their offer of avocado slices for your tacos - $7.50 for a quarter of an avocado? We won’t be coming back.
