Restaurant on the West side of Denver, great!

Tonight we ate a fantastic dinner at Indulge French Bistro. If you live on Denver's West side you must go to this restaurant. The seafood is always done perfectly, they make their own bread, which is delicious. The duck is fantastic. The wine selection is very nice. It really is a neighborhood... read more

Like another reviewer, I and my girlfriend went twice during the week and were just enchanted, not only with the atmosphere, pleasant service, wine list, and the food was just fabulous. Then we went on a busy Saturday. What a difference with the food - it was very sub par and we ordered the same entrees that we had when... More

Small and caring. Everything from the appetizers , main course , wine , and dessert was well done by a caring couple . Do plan on a full evening ( no rush here ) and enjoy!

We went to Indulge French Bistro in the Highlands for dinner. We had a lovely dinner. The owners, Stephanie and William are French and really I felt like I was eating in a restaurant in France. The ambience was charming and the service pleasant. The food was wonderful in every way from the freshly baked rolls hot from the oven,... More

Cute place with a very pleasant staff. The mussels which we thought would be a specialty were way over cooked and stuck to the shells. Entree's were good and the wine list was as well. Have plenty of time when you go as they do it French style. Slow!

Good food and service. Mussels are great. Small, intimate, run by a couple from France. Good wine list, good apps, never had a bad meal.

We loved this restaurant on our first 2 visits but were disappointed the 3rd time out. We arrived on mussels night when the restaurant was less than half full. We ordered mussels, thinking our dinner wouldn't take long, but it took more than an hour. The wait staff tried to remedy the long wait by giving us a free glass... More

This small French restaurant is owned by a French couple. The food is marvelous. Portions are small, but of great quality food. The service is good, the wine list is reasonable. It reminds you of a great small Parisian restaurant. There is a mussel's night that is also great.

I recently at at Indulge with a friend. Coming through the door we entered a very intimate setting. Loved the look and feel of the restaurant. We sat several minutes before getting water and then ordered a bottle of wine. The wrong bottle was delivered to the table but we had already waited 20 minutes so we just went with... More
