We’ve been to the Emporium several times. The food and service is always great, in addition to the drinks from the bar. They always make a great Old Fashion.

Despite all of the restrictions from Covid, we had excellent service, delicious food (we ordered almost every entree on the menu and everyone ate every last bite) and they were able to sub out risotto with the delicious lamb to accommodate my gluten intolerance. We’ll be back for sure!

Reservations recommend, but we got reservations quite easily using the app.. Servers were good with the new requirements. Sitting outside in Old Town can be challenging with traffic, pedestrians, and trains all coming together, plus your server wearing a mask. Food was very good, and it was nice to get outside for a date night.

It was an unforgettable biz lunch. The manger and our server, Josh, showed high-end professional attitude and courtesy to me and my business partner. We both totally fell in love with The Emporium. The lunch special, including desert of a chocolate lava cake, was well designed for a business lunch meeting, and its taste was excellent. I ordered a double espresso as well. Its flavor and taste were one of my best experiences. I can tell I am so picky with coffee taste and flavor bit it made me fully satisfied. I would like to five my best gratitude to The Emporium staff for giving a great memory. I am sure my wife and I will be back there pretty soon.

It is a good restaurant other than the ridiculous noise level. The room is fairly large and open, the floors are tile, the ceiling tin and the walls hard wood; in other words they did nothing to dampen noise. The result is that you can barely hear the people across the table, you literally have to lean over. My wife as well as my friends had the same complaint.

Music was too loud for a reasonable adult conversation. Sent an email stating that we'd like a nice quiet table for a birthday, but never had a response to the email and it didn't appear that the staff had any idea. Food was very tasty although prices seem to be really escalating.

The Emporium would have received a much better review had our server not delivered our dinners about 5 minutes after she brought our appetizer...a very nice charcuterie board. Their timing needs a lot of work.

Note to update:
The menu on the website is not accurate to the menu at the restaurant.

When making a reservation during happy hour time, you should note you have to sit in a special area for HH good.

I rarely write negative reviews but our service was awful. Our server would leave for expended periods of time, paid very little attention to our table, and ignored our requests (for example a water refill and a glass of ice) until we asked a second time. He was borderline rude. I've eaten at the Emporium several times and chose this restaurant to celebrate my birthday. It was disappointing that our server made it such an unpleasant celebration.

I don’t even live in Fort Collins, but I have already been to Emporium twice! They have great food (healthy and delicious and mindful of dietary restrictions), friendly service, and a fun and lively atmosphere (very spacious and welcoming)! I’ve been here only for brunch but I hear happy hour and dinner are worth checking out. The coffee bar makes excellent drinks, too. Highly recommend!

My friends and I came here for brunch and had a good time. The only hiccup was when I ordered the quiche of the day as described by the server, and when it arrived it was a totally different quiche. Our server was quick to offer the other dish I was considering before settling on the quiche so that was nice. Everybody enjoyed their food and the service was good as well. Good brunch spot in Fort Collins. It is nice they take reservations as well.

We were disappointed that one of our gift cards would not work that we got as a e-gift card. There was no online place to figure out why.

Went for the New Year’s Prix Fixe dinner. Our food here in the past has been notable, creative and delicious. We were not as happy with the new chef and this meal was good but not memorable. I sent my salmon back because it was dry and flavorless. The next was more moist, not medium rare, still little flavor, no sauce, dry lentils and nominal. The other courses were better—liked the escargot calzone and the crab cakes were good. Vegetable layered hash, not terribly appetizing. Dessert was pretty and nice. WAY too many micro greens! Overall, not a good value at $65.
It was fun to be there on New Year’s Eve and everyone was nice, service good.

Had Christmas dinner at The Emporium. It was busy and they were a bit short staffed so it took awhile but the server tried to keep up with everyone as best he could. They offered their Brunch menu for the day so the selection was modest but everyone found something they could enjoy. We will for sure return to try out their dinner menu.

We were glad that the Emporium was open on Christmas Day. Thank you! We had a nice meal, and we’re happy to know about this place. We hadn’t been up to Ft. Collins in quite a while. We would definitely eat there again. It’s quite a concept.
