Canyon Chop House
Great food; warm room.From the appetizers to dessert, we enjoyed the food served at the Chop House. That said, the only negative was being seated in a side room with little air flow. The room was warm enough that it bordered on uncomfortable, even for women in light, sleeveless summer dresses. The single floor fan in the room was inadequate to cool the 6 tables/ 20-30 people in the room and detracted from the dining experience. If you request seating in the main dining room or bar, it will be a delightful experience.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMNoise detracts from experienceThe food and the service were superb. The ambience is quite nice appearance-wise but unfortunately the noise from the kitchen area, which is open to the dining area, seriously detracts from the ambience. There was a constant, loud, vibration/mechanical sound coming from the kitchen. This sounded like ventilation equipment and indeed when outside the building this could be heard. This sound all but drowned out the music system and the combination of the mechanical sound and the drowned out music resulted in a very unpleasant cacophony which really diminished the dining experience. The Chop House would otherwise be 5 stars hands down.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMwonderful eveningThe 4 of us had the pleasure of dining at the Chop House. From the terrific heirloom salad to the fish,scallop, and steak entree, it was a great dining experience. Wonderful service. We will go back.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMPricy, but so worth it!This was our first time at the Canyon Chop House. I wanted to take my parents somewhere special for their big anniversary and we normally go to chain restaurants like Outback, Red Lobster and Olive Garden. What a big step up! Our entrees ranged from $28-38 but were worth every penny. Everything was cooked to perfection and plated elegantly. From the first bite, we had all decided we needed to come back on our next special occasion. There were so many delicious sounding menu options it was hard to choose an entree! The wait staff were very attentive and made us feel special - the manager even came and wished them a happy anniversary. We will definitely be back!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMNice ambient environment withNice ambient environment with great food and friendly staff.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMTHE steak house in Fort CollinsUnpretentious but elegant. The food is always terrific, the service is impeccable but not overbearing. It does tend to be at the higher end, cost wise, but delicious and worth it.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMNever DisappointedThis was the fourth or fifth time I've been, and like always, the food, service, and atmosphere were fantastic. While it may seem expensive to some, when your bill arrives and you look back at what you've gotten, you think the bill is short by at least $100 or so.
I have never had a bad experience or meal here, and is always on the list of "things to do" whenever I'm in Fort Collins.
I also noticed that although a somewhat "fancier" establishment, you won't feel overdressed in a suit (or dress), yet you don't feel under-dressed in a nice pair of jeans and shirt. The guy we saw in short jean shorts was pushing that a bit though...
If you haven't been here - Go. Go now!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMOur Special Occasion PlaceThis has been our special celebration, special visitors and family occasion place for many years now.
It is quietly elegant - staff are all great- food presented beautifully, creative and realistic! It is on the quieter side, at least when we have been there. The quiet in this case is very nice - good for having real conversation. A smart sustainable approach is visible as well. Not over done - without a doubt the most sophisticated dinning experience in Fort Collins specifically because it is so subtle. Everyone we have ever brought there has enjoyed it.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMbirthday dinnerCanyon Chop House was the perfect place on a quiet Sunday evening to celebrate a birthday. The staff were all friendly and efficient, the atmosphere was upscale without seeming stuffy, and the food was top notch. I highly recommend the scallops.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGraduation DinnerThis was the perfect end to a perfect Graduation Weekend. The food was excellent and the staff was very professional. We highly recommend this restaurant and will visit again if we are in town.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMCCH has been a favorite ofCCH has been a favorite of ours for years. We went during what was a busy weekend (CSU Graduation) and did not feel the hurried or pressured to turn the table at all. Our out-of-town friend said that it was the best filet he had in years!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMBusy place for Wednesday !As usual the place had wonderful food, Chop House has the best menu and specials in FortCollins. My halibut special was perfect.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food -- at a priceThe food was first-rate -- outstanding, in fact. The restaurant advertises that it prepares all dishes from scratch, and I recognize that that means things take longer -- but even considering that. the wait for our entrees was pretty long. The service, though, was excellent. The one thing that might limit my recommendations to others is the prices. And, again, the food was great, but the prices were certainly on the steep side.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was our first time at thisIt was our first time at this restaurant and I have to say it will not be the last, the food was superb, the service was great. I will definitely recommend this restaurant to family and friends. It was a wonderful evening.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent as always. OneExcellent as always.
One suggestion: the paper overlay on the table can be annoying because it catches on the diner's arm - perhaps having it longer would be less intrusive.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMTyler is a great waiter -Tyler is a great waiter - his service Chophouse is great. The food is very good - I'd still like to have an option for rice or some other choice besides potatoes. But this is a small deal.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have been going to theWe have been going to the Canyon Chop House for special occasions for several years now.

The food could not have been better.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall the restaurant wasOverall the restaurant was good. It took quite some time after being seating to get service. Once we did get service, things were nice. The food was good but relatively expensive.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThe ambiance was very pleasantThe ambiance was very pleasant compared to most restaurants we've been to recently - the noise level was perfect for a romantic dinner, but was not so loud as to be distracting or unpleasant. As usual, the food was amazing, and our servers paid so much attention to us that we formed a conspiracy theory that they were trying to get us out of there as fast as possible! Of course, this absolutely was not the case, we were just being goofy over dinner as usual. It was really very nice - no having to wait around or flag down your waiter because they're too busy. Excellent dining experience, would highly recommend.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic service. Great wineFantastic service. Great wine selection. Great evening. Thanks.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat gem. I have lived inGreat gem. I have lived in Fort Collins for 20+ years and just went to this place and all I could think was why have I never gone before? The food was outstanding, I had the braised Lamb shank and it melted in my mouth and fell off the bone. My date had a steak and they even accommodated her wanting blue cheese crumbles on top. The service was great too, I like a lot of privacy when I eat so our server picked up on that vibe and gave us our space and still great service. Food was timely and hot, and I was only thrown off by the fact that this really nice restraunt printed their menu's on what seemed to be big paper bag like material that was folded up in your napkin. Espically when the drink list was in a nice leather bound book. Great Find3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a great experience.Always a great experience. We come down from Wyoming and it's ALWAYS worth the drive!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMBreak from the normA great break from the family dining restaurants. We went with friends & had a great experience. The food was great and the White Chocolate martinis are highly recommended! The atmosphere of the place was more up-scale then the typical restaurants & with service to match.
You pay what you get for & this place backs it up. High quality all around.
We will go back again!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMA new favorite, and close by.Great environment (one night, we're going to try the table in the former bank vault - neat!). Great wine list, with knowledgeable service staff. Many good entrees - it's difficult to try something new when the first one I tried was so, so good.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went to the Canyon ChopWe went to the Canyon Chop House for the Grate Plates special, and it was excellent!
