We went here for New Years Eve, although we did not stay past 1030 as we wanted to celebrate midnight at home. Made reservations late and was told we could have the lounge type area as no tables were available. This turned out to be perfect. We were seated in comfy chairs right by the fireplace and there was a... More

Made dinner reservations and frankly, was expecting a better experience. Seated promptly. Server was pleasant and attentive. I personally love scallops and my husband, steak. The scallops were NOT pan seared and lukewarm in temperature. Wish I would have taken a picture of there quarter size. They didn't compare in any way to the beautiful pan seared jumbo scallops on...

The menu really favors the sauces and flavors of the food. The servings are moderate sizes, which really allows for enjoying the food. The wine list is excellent, along with the pairing options. The mixologist behind the bar is outstanding. One of the better restaurants in Fort Collins.

I stopped in for a late lunch. The atmosphere was lovely and the menu nice. I only looked at the lunch menu. The chicken salad was tasty and I was full when I left. I also indulged in the sweet rolls with peans and cream cheese frosting. There were 3 small ones, but yummy and filling. I saved 2 for... More

To be fair, this was my fifth time at this restaurant. My last four experiences were good to great & the food here is always fantastic, but at a price competitive with the other fine dining establishments in FOCO. We usually end up just eating the tapas and enjoy the cocktails & wine. This time I was with a group... More

While we were on a family vacation we met with a few friends at Cafe Vino. I really enjoyed the large bar table that created a great way of being able to lead several conversations. The waitress was attentive without feeling overpowering....just a classy way of keeping 10 people fed and supplied with drinks. the wine list is great; has... More

Wine was great, food presentation was terrific. Steak tacos were good. Didn't like the topping of tacos but the steak was greatly prepared

Traveling for business, party of one. This place has three sections of bar seating with plenty of entertaining people watching. It was pretty packed at 7ish on a Wednesday night. The menu choices are awesome, not typical bar fare at all. They offer half glasses of wine and have an incredibly varied beer tap selection. Hope to visit again.

Thank Diane D
