Beautiful restaurant. Service was good. Unfortunately, they ran out of items on the fixed menu for NYE. Very overpriced for the quality of the food/options.

Came for the NYE dinner- great table and ambiance! First 3 courses were spectacular however dessert was very disappointing. The cream puff was ridiculously over spiced. The egg nog pie was also heavily over done with nutmeg/allspice. All members at table thought the dessert options were all over spiced and just not good for the high price tag. Service was also unexpectedly just not good- sat down and took over 20 minutes for anyone to come over. Had to grab the waiter back to even order wine....

Banquet food at fine-dining prices. I have been the The Catch at least 7 times -- both in the banquet room for work functions and in the restaurant for family dining. I have come to expect the banquet meals to be mediocre and the family meals in the restaurant to be very good. Maybe the difference is the banquet food is mass produced for same point in time service, I don't know. But I and my daughter were severely disappointed with this year's New Years Eve's fixed menu dinner served in the restaurant. The Cache had run out of one of the three appetizers by mid-evening (of course the one both my daughter and I wanted). The soup (cauliflower with scallop) was lukewarm, even though the bowl in which it was served was hot. They must have kept the plates in a warmer and the soup on a turned-off burner (I would have preferred it the other way around). The radicchio and pear salad had several intense flavors that did not blend well. May daughter's main dish, an acorn squash, was overpowered by vinegar, and my Osso Buco (pork shank instead of lamb or beef) was dried out apparently from sitting around after being cooked much earlier. We did not try the fish entree, but was told by another table that it was, well, fishy. As we left, a server was seating another table and telling them that the soup and another item were no longer available, in addition to the unavailable appetizer. I do not mean to be too harsh, but I think when a restaurant limits its menu for a special occasion, such as New Year's Eve, and every table is reserved (with cancellation penalty), then the restaurant should have enough food for the evening and the restaurant should not prepare for the event like it is a business banquet.

New Year's dinner was AMAZING. It was a 4-course meal with several options per course, not their standard menu. Everything was outstanding. Our server was fantastic and recommended a particularly good bottle of wine. This is such a cool place with a lot of character. The staff are all very friendly and efficient. I have zero complaints. This might be our new go-to for New Year's Eve dinner.

New Years Eve. We have been here before and had a good experience. Not tonight, service was terrible, food overdone and for the price way to high for the food. New Years menu and food preparation very disappointing. Left without having dessert because it was taking so long to get service. Luckily the manager responded to our concerns and discounted our meal.

We had high expectations for a memorable meal. Granted, it was New Year’s Eve and it was a four course Prix Fixe menu but the quality was marginal. The duck crepes were bland and a bechamel sauce was cool and had a firm surface when presented. The Osso Bucco was done nicely and was tender but there was no sauce which is always a highlight of the dish. The risotto was dry, sticky and cool. The creme puff with a chocolate mousse for desert had a creme puff was more like a biscuit with a hint of salt and the chocolate mousse was pale in color and chocolate could barely be detected. For a meal that cost over $300 with a bottle of wine and tip for two people this was a big disappointment. There are several restaurants in the Ft. Collins area that far exceed the quality we experienced at the Cache at Ginger and Baker

I would give them a 4.5 stars if I could but the app doesn’t allow. The food was very good with only a couple minor criticisms, duck a bit undercooked, dessert menu was meh (to us), and a bit pricey. All that said, we’ve never had a bad meal/experience here and a “perfect” meal is very hard to find, hence the 4.5 rating.

I was surprised that nothing was brought to the table ahead of the meal. The food was prepared really well and tasted great. It's an expensive menu to not have any accompany sides included. 30-40 per plate and then an additional 10 for a side seems steep. Maybe some bread brought to the table...Just a thought. Server was great! Food was great! Just would have appreciated more for the $$

The food is excellent, and restaurant itself is wonderful. Service was truly outstanding. Only challenge was the noise level is fairly high - we had a larger party, and couldn't hear each other very well. Other than that, 5-stars all the way!

We got a great table and our server was very nice. However, we ordered the flight of wines to have with dinner, and they brought the food before the wine came. We were halfway done with our main course before it arrived,m. Our server asked “how our first few bites were”, which seemed dismissive about the wine arriving late as the food was actually halfway gone. We were eating especially slowly waiting for it. She commented that it takes a long time pour them but she knew well in advance we were going to order wine with dinner and she knew we were riding flights because she answered questions about them for us. It also appears the the kitchen didn’t season the filet one of us ordered. Very disappointing for such an expensive dish. I’ve lost some of my enthusiasm. It used to be my favorite place.

Very good restaurant but with the prices they charge it needed to be really special and I do not believe it is that good. I may be spoiled by the wide variety of good restaurants in the Ft Collins area but this seems like a 4 star restaurant with 5 star prices. Service was terrific, ambiance very good (it was the rarest of restaurant experiences - it was QUIET!). Menus is a bit limited for this level of dining. We will give it another try but only for very special occasions.

The Cache is an upscale venue, with very good service. It is pricey, and the food and cocktails are decent, but not excellent. We have been a few times, when we are in the mood for something different for date night. It doesn’t make our regular rotation, because it doesn’t quite measure up to some of our other options.

The Cache was such a treat. I had the filet and my boyfriend had the burger. Both were cooked perfectly. We started with the poached pear endive salad, which was divine- and finished with a blondie sunday which was delicious. Our waiter was fabulous and made our whole dining experience that much better. We will defintely be back!

This was our first ever visit here and we live in the community! We went early on a Sunday and were one of only a few tables. The service was great and attentive as well as informative. We got some great views over the city to the foothills and got to watch the sun set over the rockies which was an added bonus. The menu is not extensive, but all items we tried were terrific! Will definitely go back again.

We were celebrating an anniversary which was acknowledged by all staff during the evening starting with complimentary sparkling rose’. We chose the beef tenderloin and blue cheese tart as well as mussels for appetizers. Both were prepared well, although the mussels were more of an main entree size so about half of the order went uneaten. We both had the giant pan seared scallops for our main - such an excellent dish, well seasoned and presented. The dining space is somewhat cavernous and our neighboring table was quite boisterous so the noise level was more than a bit loud, so quiet conversation was impossible. That notwithstanding the overall experience was quite pleasant.

we were very unhappy with our experience at cache on wed. Nov6th, the food was way overpriced for the quality of it, my husbands salmon was raw in the middle, he did not send it back as it would have delayed my eating my pasta. and to make matters worse we both had stomach cramps within 2 hrs. of eating dinner and we were sick for 24hrs. after. this was a birthday dinner also. the only good thing I can say about the cache is the wait staff were excellent connie compton 408-472-8012

We really enjoyed our experience, but were surprised by the service we received. We arrived early for our reservation and we were seated at a table uncomfortably close to the bathrooms. This would have been fine if nothing else was available, but there were other similarly sized tables, so that didn’t make sense. It then took over 15 minutes to have an opportunity to order drinks and food. It was a busy night for sure, but we saw people seated after us served before us. At the end of the day, we still enjoyed our experience as the food was exceptional, it just didn’t feel like the service was worth the price tag

I will start with the positive: the food was excellent. However, we had a drink and then a glass of wine. Both times it took way too long to get the drinks. We could see the wine sitting on the bar ready to be served; but our waiter didn't seem to notice. Finally, I had to ask him for the wine; which he quickly brought. However, I shouldn't have had to ask. A little pricy. Next time I will go downstairs.

Service was excellent and our waitress was very knowledgeable. The beef steaks (NY strip and Filet) were excellent. Loved the risotto and all the sides. I was super disappointed in the buffalo ribeye. I ordered it MR as recommended. The meat was cooked perfect but the steak had almost no flavor. Like salt and pepper would have been a huge improvement. Wine was delicious though and so was the ambiance.
