This restaurant has a nice mix of healthier food choices (including vegetarian with option to make it pescatarian) but also some less healthy food choices if that's the mood you're in. The portions are nice, the drink options are fun and excellently mixed (cocktails), and the ambience is really chill. The only thing that I would think could improve the restaurant would potentially be more appetizer options but that's a small thing!! Service was great, everyone was lovely. :-) We had a great time!

My bourbon old fashioned was just right. We shared the squash soup which was delicious. Hubby enjoyed the breadboard. Then we shared the salmon dish which included mashed potatoes and Brussels. It was great, salmon cooked perfectly. We will of course keep Emporium on our regular rotation of great Fort Collins restaurants.

We are in Ft. Collins for our anniversary weekend. This was our first time dining at The Emporium. It was great! We start with the Mussels n’duja. I order the Vegetable Orecchiette with braised beef. My husband order the Boneless Beef Shortrib. Both were delicious!

Knowledgeable waitstaff, present managers, and excellent food options. Highlights for my experience included the arugula salad, muscles mariniere, and the shrimp and grits, though everything I sampled had high points.

It was clean and there was enough room between tables where there isn’t an audible din in the room, but still a general feeling of bustle and activity.

Quite an enjoyable experience and somewhat of a hidden gem!

Thanks for the experience!

Brunch for 4 hit $150 (with three mimosas). Food was good but short of amazing as nothing was particularly unique, especially for the cost. Service was attentive. If location wasn’t in the upscale Elizabeth Hotel, this would disappoint. I won’t rush back but all-in-all was a pleasant experience.

There's no doubt the atmosphere at Emporium significantly increases the positive responses now that FoCo is "on the map". Overall, our experience was good. Our server was friendly, basically competent, but nothing really stands out. I enjoyed my salmon entree, and my husband ordered the steak. His steak was pink at Emporium's idea of medium. My friend had a pasta dish and added chicken. I noticed she had a generous bowl of pasta in broth, but 2 pieces of chicken and barely any vegetables. I'm glad I didn't order that dish; it would have been disappointing. We had a bottle of wine, and a meat appetizer board for a total of 4 people. No desserts or coffee. Our part of the bill was $100. I say, okay...... it was a treat, but honestly; not rushing back.

Our experience with this restaurant has not been good. The first night, we had the Sirloin Steak and the meatloaf. The steak was an awful cut and full of gristle. My meatloaf and creamed corn side were cold. The service that night was good and very attentive.
The next night we had mussels as an appetizer, which were honestly the worst mussels I have ever eaten. Full of sand and again ice cold. The charcuterie and the cheese board are completely underwhelming for the price. Would not eat there again.
