Chop House - If you love meat
We enjoyed our last dinner there - our anniversary. I had the braised lamb shank and my wife had a special 8oz rib-eye and shrimp. Both were excellent. They were running a wine special - everything under $75 a bottle was on sale. The hostess made an excellent suggestion for a Zinfandel that we enjoyed very much. Overall, we'll definitely be back.

Very good, not great
Had the right idea and was very comfortable. Great steak. Nothing complicated. Cheese plate had some completely not ready for prime time elections. Otherwise a credible choice in Ft Collins.

I took my wife here on our anniversary and we couldn't have been more pleased! The building used to be a bank and the vault door Is still there. Very cool atmosphere and romantic. The service is top notch - very aware of when they're needed and leave you be when they're not. The food was excellent and the prices were comparable to other nice restaurants.

Good food and Quiet
Avoid the high noise level at Jay's and try the CCH. Two entries, 2 drinks, 1 dessert $80. Beats Jay's.

Great food and service.
Great steaks! Love the scallops appetizer. Service is great and the atmosphere is awesome. The "Vault" is great for a larger table.

I had never been to the chop house before and I really enjoyed my experience. The food was excellent and the service top notch. If you go, I would highly recommend trying the Pomme Williams. It was amazing!

Quite a find! This restaurant serves gourmet food in a lovely environment with a well-trained wait-staff....a truly memorable meal!
7/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent food, average service.
For the price, I would have expected a more attentive server. The food was excellent, but the bus staff were more attentive than our server. Overall, I would recommend it. I just wouldn't take a date there to 'wow' them.

Great deme glaze.

Great dining experience
The Canyon Chop House is outstanding. Their food is well worth the price. It is a great place to have a nice slow dinner, as appetizers, entrees, and deserts are all a must. Come hungry and with plenty of time to relax, and you will not be disappointed.

As Good as it Gets
We have dined all over the world and enjoy the Chop House beyond anything else.

Great food, hot atmosphere
The food service and ambiance was great.
The restaurant was 80 degrees the entire time we were there. We were told that "the air conditioning was working as hard as it can to keep up with the heat". It was very uncomfortable. everyone inside was sweating.

One of Fort Collins' Finest!
Always enjoy going to the Chop House. It is an especially nice place to take guests.

Outdoor patio was very relaxing.
Outdoor patio was very relaxing. Service on the patio was superb. Our waitress was fantastic--very accommodating. We were disappointed with the service we received once we were seated at our table inside (different waitress). We were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. We have been to the Canyon Chop House many, many times.

43rd Wedding Anniversary
We shared the evening with our two sons and we all enjoyed our entre's. My salmon with lobster mashed potatoes was wonderful. I also enjoyed the house mojito. The strawberry rhubarb cobbler with walrus ice cream was a wonderful end to the meal. The atmosphere was relaxing and interesting. I noticed several couples there for a romantic dinner as well as some small groups enjoying the evening together.

Best restaurant in Fort Collins
I come here every time I'm in town which is several times a year and have never been disappointed. Great service and ambience. Flat Iron steak and Filets are the best. Melt in your mouth short ribs. A must if you visit this quaint city.
8/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
We received this as a gift and had never been before. The evening was excellent and we will go back. We have recommended it to other family members and will give gift certificates for this restaurant at Christmas
8/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Planned a special event to celebrate mutual birthdays and was not disappointed. Lovely food, service and ambiance. Would love to visit again!
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Food, Great ambience.
Having dined at this restaurant before, we revisited for our anniversary. The food, service and ambience were great with a quiet romantic atmosphere.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best steak in FoCo
An excellent "date night" spot. The filets at Canyon are by far the best steaks you will find in Northern Colorado. The sides are good--not as stellar as the steaks but few things can be THAT good!
9/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Steaks are their specialty! Well of course with a name like Chop house what do you expect! Anyway we (3) had 3 different steaks and enjoyed them all! Service was great ! Worth going again

A Great Steak Dinner
I took my girlfriend out for our anniversary. She ordered the 5oz and I order the 9oz. They were 30 and 40 dollar steaks and were well worth it not only cause of the taste, but also because we got two sides and a salad each. The Canyon Chop House may have a pricey menu, but you definitely get a lot of food of your money. This is a great date or anniversary spot!
9/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was great. One of
The food was great. One of the best places in town. Great atmosphere, it was quiet, with low light, and a candle on the table. It was rather nice. However, it was a little offensive that I made my reservation week in advance and when we arrived even though nobody was there my date and I got were seated on the wall with a big advertising board next to our faces. This is a first world problem to have but the point of the matter is that I went through the appropriate means of procuring a seat there and was sat in the worst seat in the house.

Always a great place in FC
This is a one of the standards of fine dining in Fort Collins. Nice place, good food, and interesting wine list.
Really enjoyed our server last night. Perfectly attentive, but not overly. The wine list had several interesting Pinot Noirs. We chose one that turned out to be outstanding, at a reasonable restaurant price. The food is always good, and no surprises last night.
Only problem, we may have eaten a bit too much. I think that is a personal issue, rather than a restaurant problem.

Food presentation was great.
Food presentation was great. Food delicious with good service.

canyon chop house
we have visited this restaurant in the past on about four different occasions.this visit we agreed that the food needs some improvement.the bartender and libations were outstanding.the wait staff was superior as well.all in allit was a very enjoyable evening and we will probably return again someday.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent Ft. Collins Steak
Finally, a steak in Ft. Collins worthy of being called, "prime." The steak was cooked perfectly and melted in my mouth. I added the Oscar, it was the best value on an Oscar I've ever had. They provided a generous portion of lump crab meat, however the hollandaise was non-existent. They have an extensive wine list and I was pleasantly surprised at how reasonable the top wines were priced. I would definitely recommend this place to any foodies or anyone needing a spot for a special occasion. The scallop appetizer was perfect and the onion soup hit the mark. Enjoy

This restaurant was a pleasant
This restaurant was a pleasant surprise. The food was great and so was the service. We had a very enjoyable experience. We will definitely refer our friends and return again. Thanks for the great experience!
10/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
No complaints about the Canyon Chop House. Service was quick and excellent. Food was cooked as we requested. Noise level a little high, but certainly WAY less than Jay's. We regularly go to the CCH and take guests there.
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our group of 8 was accommodated quite nicely. Our waitress was spot on - the food was marvelous. We had a grand time on a Fri night during parents weekend at CSU!
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Top of the List
Had a great dinner to celebrate a birthday...fabulous steaks, great wines from a Large List....lived in town over 30 years, this ranks up there at the top. Definitely calls for a return trip...Will try out happy hour next time!!
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful dinner experience
We came to Fort Collins for Family Weekend at CSU as our daughter is a freshman and was also celebrating her 19th birthday that same weekend. We came to the Canyon Chop House for dinner and were surprised and pleased to be seated in the vault room, an actual old vault from the days when the restaurant was a bank. We had wonderful service provided by Megan and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their food, drinks and the atmosphere. It was a highlight of our weekend and would recommend it to others looking for a special night out.

Adult food for Ft. Collins
Do not get me wrong, I think Ft. Collins has a lot of good restaurants, but they are more for the college age customer. So I have been looking for an adult (parent) restaurant in Ft. Collins, and I think I have found it. The restaurant is well run with knowledgable and courteous servers. The food was very good and well prepared. The wine list accompanied the dinner menu well. I will be going back to Canyon Chop House upon my return to Ft. Collins.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice Special Occasion Restaurant
Set in a former bank building, Canyon Street Chop House has plenty of ambience, good service, and the food is tasty. Mostly a steak and seafood restaurant, it's known for its Kobe steaks and filets. Our petite filets did not disappoint. They were cooked to perfection with a nice demi glace sauce.
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent experience, minor nits
We enjoyed our time at Canyon Chop House. This is the best steak house in Fort Collins that we've found. The only draw backs for us were a server that was a little underwhelming and the fact that or table ended up being in a little side room that made the ambience a little strange. We loved the bar and the bartender was great and the wine list is very solid. We'll definitely be back, and expect the couple of small issues to have been just chance that will be fine.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
May be my new favorite restaurant
I made a reservation and had to change the time at the last minute and they were so nice and accommodating about the change. The food was excellent and our server was very nice. Because of the time change on the reservation we waited a bit more than usual for our food, but it was worth the wait.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
I recently took my boyfriend here for his birthday. The waitress was a little rude but as soon as I took my first bite of food, I completely let that go. It is pricy but worth it! Definitely a good place for a special ocassion!
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
..Wow...what a meal....
..it is so great that ft. collins finially has a resturant that understands how to coom a steak....great food all around...
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best Food Ever!
The steak here was AMAZING! I ordered a medium rare 18 oz. rib-eye and I was not disappointed! The meat was cooked perfectly and the flavors were amazing! The sides were done extremely well too! It was well worth the price and had a much better value than many steak houses I've been to in my life! I recommend this restaurant to everyone! It was delicious and the quality of service, as well as the atmosphere, were high end.
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good Food, Good service.
All of the above but way too noisy. A really frenetic jazz tape spoiled an otherwise great evening.
10/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Outstanding - great service
Went on Halloween night for my birthday. It was quiet and romantic. Enjoyed happy hour first and then sat down for dinner. Server was outstanding. Had Fillet - tender and awesome. the scallop appetizer was cooked to perfection. A bit pricey, but great for that special occasion.
10/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love Canyon Chop House, easily
Love Canyon Chop House, easily the best restaurant in Fort Collins. That said, the desert menu has gotten a bit stale...
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
excellent food, very nice setting
Service was excellent, never felt rushed or intruded upon, yet the staff were always available. Food was very well prepared and presented
11/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
The filet was delicious, it
The filet was delicious, it practically melts in your mouth. And their garlic mashed potatoes are to die for. My husband really enjoyed the crabcakes also. The french onion soup wasn't my favorite, it was much too sweet, not enough salt to bring out the onion or cheese flavors. Overall, the food was great!
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good food and friendly ambiance
We were in the mood for good beef and found it here! Three of us had different cuts and each was delicious - well prepared and presented. We were also glad to hear that it was locally sourced. My mignon was buttery and flavorful and the mushroom topping was worth the price.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
My new favorite splurge
Although I'd visited a few times for happy hour, this was my first visit to the Canyon Chop House for dinner. What a great experience! Service struck the perfect balance between casual and upscale. The food was by far the best value for money I've found in a Fort Collins fine dining establishment (of which there is a frustrating dearth). A bit spendy? Yes. But you more than get what you pay for in excellent quality. And unlike many high-end restaurants, the portions are generous. The braised lamb shank was so big it could have come straight out of the Flintstones. And my wife's dinner featured not one but two slabs of trout. The chef creates solid, approachable dishes. Unique but not esoteric. I recommend the Chop House without hesitation.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
This was an excellent steak
This was an excellent steak dinner! In fact I would say it was the best filet mignon I have ever had. It was worth the expense at the end. The only criticism (if at all) was our waitress could have came with the bill sooner. I was waiting for what seemed like an hour (it was actually 15 min) for the chance to pay for my wonderful meal. Highly recommend this dinning experience.

Canyon Chop House
Hostess was impolite when seating us.
Slow to bring bread to the table.
Food was good, although not hot at time of serving.
Failed to serve side dish that was ordered. Finally arrived shortly before we left. Boxed for take-away.
Overall good, but for the price I expected a bit better.
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
We went to dinner with friends prior to walking over to the Lincoln Center for a performance. The service was excellent, the food was delicious and the drinks were superb. The waitress was accommodating and we appreciated the whole experience.
