I went to eat here tonight. My boyfriend said pick anywhere in boulder and I was excited to come here. The food is delicious and I have been here many times now. The server never came to our table after we got our food.. I had to ask a different server to check us out. He was rude. They started adding “shiner fee” which is a 19% cost of the bill, and the service was terrible. It is a real tragedy because I loved coming here. unfortunately will not be coming back ever again.
Shine is my all time favorite restaurant in Boulder. The food is absolutely define! It’s so healthy yet has the comfort food feel. They have the best vegan food on the planet!! On top of that, you absolutely feel like you are in a magical place. The atmosphere and high vibe makes you feel you can do ANYTHING! You get to see the world in a view of ultimate possibilities!! It’s inspiring and truly makes me feel the magic within me and the world! The owners pour their hearts into everything they do....they have hearts of gold!
The magic started when we called ahead to make sure Shine was open and still serving food. Nicole was so welcoming on the phone, we were excited to meet her once we arrived. We were delighted to find Molly, our server, and Nicole, the manager, dressed for Halloween as the potions on the menu. They were adorable and made our night. We got an awesome spot by the fire and took the recommendation of the male bartender to get the cacoa. So delish. Food was good. Vibe was awesome. The hospitality made us want to return!
I have yet to visit this location, ended up moving from CO right about the time they moved from downtown Boulder, and stopped by one evening as they were closing for the business day... but, when I had dined there over lunch and dinner hours I was always impressed with the uniquely creative and absolutely delicious inspired foods and drinks. I had my first Scotch Egg at this restaurant - it blew my mind with its Gluten-Free Goodness! They cater to special dietary restrictions and have foods that will please even picky palates. I took my sister and nephews to dine when they came to town and everyone found something scrumptious and those boys can be a bit tricky to please, at times. Everyone enjoyed the appetizers, mains, drinks, and desserts! So happy to be living in CO again, a lot closer than middle of nowhere, KS, and looking forward to heading to Boulder for an amazing dish!
Top notch everything. Locally owned. Just lovely.
