Welsh Rabbit was a charming place, cozy, small and very attentive. The menu is comprised of small plates to share. The food was delicious, the cheese variety is the big draw. My only suggestion is that the personal plate to use is very small (3.5”) and the shared plates are very large (8”) and crowd the table. It would be better to reverse the plate sizing, since the food on the shared plates, while artfully presented, are of smaller volume than the plate it’s served on.

Once again our meal was wonderful. The cheese is good but the real highlight was the small plates, specifically the pastas. The flavors and sauces are amazing. This is the best restaurant in Fort Collins.

Unique restaurant with nice choice of cheeses, meats. Service was fine, waitress seemed a bit inexperienced and lacking valuable input on selections. Turmeric pasta was amazing. I personally did not care for cheese cake or dessert options.

I took my husband on a mystery date night, assuming I couldn't go wrong with a place that specialized in cheese plates and that had all the good reviews the Welsh Rabbit had. They did not disappoint. We savored every bite and truly enjoyed our dinner. I had an unusual and delicious cider with my meal and he found a beer he liked, so drinks were excellent as well. Every cheese we ordered was unique and amazing and well-described, aiding us in making selections we could really enjoy. We sampled a little something from each of their cheese lists and truly each was its own special adventure. We had 3 meats on our plate and those also did not disappoint. The finale of their special take on cheesecake was amazing. I would go back just for that dessert. You just can't go wrong here. There is something for everyone and even the things you doubt end up being fantastic.

The kindest most caring people I have ever met. This establishment epitomizes what is right in this world. My family and I have been long time customers at the Welsh Rabbit, and we drive down from Laramie about once a month to enjoy the bread (what originally brought us in after a trip to France), meat, and of course, cheeses. This is our family’s favorite place to dine in Fort Collins, and we never come to town without starting or ending at the Welsh Rabbit.

If you’ll spare me a minute, I will share my experience of August the 3rd, and I hope you will be remotely as touched as I was... my family have had a bit of a rough year, and this week was no exception, when a home purchase we’d been working on all summer fell through. As I usually do when I need a break, I invited my wife and daughter to get “cheese” in Fort C and promptly booked a table for noon on Saturday at our go to place... the Welsh Rabbit. With lots going on, and more than usual stress, the hour plus drive was quiet, and we were all on edge. Thankfully parking wasn’t terrible, and we soon found ourselves seated at our favorite window seat.

We were hungry, so we ordered more than usual, and we enjoyed a wonderful lunch. As we were finishing our coffee and visiting, we were celebrating how wonderful our meal had been, as we commented on the various cheese and meat pairings we had been exploring. Suffice it to say simply enjoying a meal together in such a comfortable spot had significantly lightened the mood.

As we prepared to pay and leave, our server approached the table and said that when he and the chef and spotted our reservation on Open Table that morning, they wanted to do something special for us that day, and he proceeded to inform us that they were comping our meal.

I was floored. This random act of kindness touched me deeply. In a world that at times feels consumed by discord and selfishness, it’s nice to be reminded that there are good people out there. Thank you. Ryan Kobbe

Our server, Jake, was very helpful in selecting a combination of meats and cheeses with complementing flavors. We deal with several food allergies, which made his task more difficult. He came thru w/an excellent selection.
We enjoyed our meal and will be back again.

Excellent food quality and variety. The restaurant was cozy and comfortable, a great place to enjoy a meal. We did wait quite a long time for an order that the wait staff had forgotten to request, but other than that the service was lovely.

Went out tonight for birthday dinner two. If you are ever in the mood for a unique experience, I highly recommend the Welsh Rabbit Bistro in Ft Collins. It is a wine and cheese bar with very high end tapas-like small bites at a very reasonable price. Our host and server was awesome and knowledgeable about the wines and cheeses presented to us. It was a experience that I will not forget and hope to repeat again soon. It was our pre-dinner appetizers, but after seeing their menu, I think we would have been better off just staying there for the night.Do yourself a favor and visit this jewel soon.

Unique and wonderful dining experience. Just what you would expect from a place called the Welsh Rabbit. They somehow manage to be trendy, quirky, and quaint at the same time. Phenomenal food. Just know that this not a place where you will stuff yourself in 10 minutes for $10 - this is a place where you will spend an hour just sipping wine and nibbling on cheese and not even realize any time has passed.

It’s our favorite spot around. Discovered this gem years ago after a trip from France when we were looking for something different near home. We make the journey down to Fort Collins once a month to enjoy dinner at the Welsh Rabbit for many years.

We had a lovely dinner. The service was a little bit slow that night...something to do with the kitchen, but they comped us a glass of wine and offered another if we wanted it. Lovely waitstaff, great ambience. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves

Being as it was my first time in a cheese bistro it was amazing, food was great, service was on point and it was so quiet in there it made for a great place to have conversation over delicious charcuterie
