This used to be the best place in Golden for a dinner date or girls night out. I’ve been several times enjoying the wine selection and great menu options. Recently, it seems the prices have increased while the quality of the food has gone down. I ordered the chicken gnocchi (recommended by our waitress) and had gummy gnocchi with unseasoned overcooked grilled chicken. The peas and mushrooms served in the garlic cream sauce where too few to make up for the rest of the dish. A few of my companions had the picnic burger which came out with a soggy bun, almost no blue cheese and over cooked hamburger. The happy hour menu is still pretty decent and you can often get a table during crowded hours making this a mediocre stop.

Hello Katelynn, Thank you for joining us at Indulge and taking the time to leave us a review. We apologize that your latest visits to Indulge have not lived up to our standard. Do you happen to remember the night that you dined that you experienced the gnocchi and picnic burger as you described? I would like to check in with the kitchen to see what may have happened that day or night to account for the poor execution of these dishes. We do still have the same head chef, so I am not sure why the quality would be suffering at this time. We truly appreciate your feedback as this helps us to make improvements on our restaurant. Thank you again! We hope that you will continue to be our guest at Indulge.

Indulge B&WB has a lot going for it. With a little more attention to detail, it could reach its full potential. Our server was very professional and knowledgeable, and the hosting was fine dining quality as well. The interior of Indulge is really nice, suitable for just about any event from graduation dinner to romantic rendezvous. Let me start with my biggest peeve: I disagree vehemently with the floor management decision to cram nearly all the 2-tops into a narrow room (almost hallway) lined with banquettes. You have made sitting at the bar more attractive than sitting a table to dine. Bad move - think about it. The 2-top zone feels like a time-out room compared to the open, airy space of the main dining room. At least, put up some floral wall hangings to liven up the time-out area a bit. Dining 2-tops are the lifeblood of many restaurants. Do not penalize them, incidentally or otherwise, for being a party of two. Now for the food. The menu balances between bar and fine dining in layout, which cheats the overall experience. Indulge deserves a fine dining menu for tabled seating, and a bar menu for the bar, and the venue will make more money in the long run. Food concepts are very solid but rather predictable. I think the chef could step the creativity up a notch or two and Indulge clientele would approve. But pursuit of higher creativity must be accompanied by more exacting kitchen standards. Our plates of food were well-conceived in flavor and presentation, but the execution of the items was not quite where it should be for the Indulge price point. Challenge the line cooks and pantry to pursue more exacting standards. They are ready for it, but someone needs to push them.

Derrick waited on us a few nights ago and he was fabulous! He was professional but also personable and knew the menu very well. I had the Chicken/shrimp Roulade special and LOVED it. I've been coming to both indulge locations for years and after all this time, the food and service still stands out. Thanks for the great night, Derrick. We loved it!

Been here several times and it has always been good. Good food options for those with dietary sensitivities with plenty of gluten free options. Service is also always good.

I love Indulge, period. Our friends live in Golden and every time we go see them we hit the one there. The outside patio right on the sidewalk is very cool with couches and a little fireplace. We love sitting out there. Mike does a great job and everyone on the staff is super friendly. My go to is always the Tony Soprano flatbread. It's awesome. We always do a bunch of small plates as well they're all good. The wine list is also great obviously, it's a wine bar.
