This place has HUGE potential. Service for what the portend to be is lacking. Could be Covid challenges. Tasty food. Just kinda needs that final polish. Such a great space. Again, HUGE potential!

Considering the challenge of presenting a great atmosphere and meal out during these days of pandemic, the Emporium did a great job. We had a very nice relaxing meal with wonderful waiters and a good wine selection.

Came for happy hour first. Even during the partial reopening from covid-19, they have a great value menu. The sliders were delish as were the fries. Awesome old fashioneds. Even if it’s on tap (genius btw), a great happy hour deal!

Very clean restaurant, and the service was good. They forgot my order, and then when I brought it to their attention, they promptly brought me my dinner. The wrong dish... but it was tasty. The dinner and my drink were comped so that was very nice. I would go back to that restaurant again and give them a second chance

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!
