A bit of a fancy, upscale joint, great atmosphere. About 20 taps, nice selection and a decent bottle list. A bit expensive, I’ve heard the food is really good. I saw a Rochefort 10 served with a classic pilsner glass, which was kind of weird. Definitely worth checking out if you’re hungry and thirsty.
Wife and I had dinner on a Friday night. I really liked it. Is it a craft beer Mecca? No. Is it a chill place to get some great food and better than average beer? Yes. Our server was fantastic. Very knowledgable about the local beer scene and what beer they have on tap. About 20 or so taps. Mostly local stuff. Beer was poured in proper glassware. Split a couple apps and we each had an entree. Food was definitely better than average. Quality over quantity. An off the radar to relax, have one great local beer and a very good meal. I like.
Went there for the first time on 4/9/11. Great beer choices (they had Odell’s Friek on tap). Got the mussels and that was good. Best part of Cafe Vino was service -- everyone was accommodating and wanted to make sure we were taken care of. I would go back there again for a date night/relaxing night for wine. The patio is great.
Cafe Vino is a coffee shop with food and a good selection of beer. Food is pretty good tapas, and a selection of sandwiches at lunch. The beer rotates and usually has something interesting. They’ll frequently have Pliney and St Bernandus Abt 12, but the selection for the taps could be a bit better IMO. It’s also a bit pricey.

Great place to find a lot of beers on tap that you can’t find elsewhere in Fort Collins. I had Pliny the Elder on tap there the other night and they also usually have an experimental beer or two by New Belgium and O’Dells. The service is sometimes quite poor and the prices can be a bit high ($12 for a 330mL of Rochefort 10). It should definitely be on a Fort Collins beer tour once you’re done with the breweries.
Very nice place, nice atmosphere (dark, slight "upscale" feel) with patio (traffic noise from busy road). Service has been mixed, sometimes lame, sometimes good, sometimes great. Very good beer selection with many hard to find brews! The food is not typical but very good. Unfortunately, both brew and food come at a fairly high price compared to others which is the biggest knock on this place. Better atmosphere lends itself to taking a date here and still getting a great beer.
This is a cool place. European bistro feel. Lots of nooks to settle in, fireplace in winter, deck and firepits outside in summer. Good eats. You will find alll types and ages, from CSU coeds to professionals. They drink a lot of different stuff here...bier, wine, martininis, mixed-drinks.
We’re here for the BEER: Some unusual and frequently changing selections. Several local Colorado brews along with regionals and a few imports. Decent glassware. Fairly knowledgable tenders. My only biotch: no German brews (thinking Augustiner or Bitburger) ..what?!!!

The atmosphere seems more like a late-night happy hour lounge than a beer bar - low light, glossy table and bar tops, servers a little over-dressed and with a little too much attitude. But the beer selection is respectable, including a few Lips of Faith selections from New Belgium. There are more comfortable places to drink in FC, though, such as Catalyst.
Easy enough to find on College next to the university. Rather small wine bar but makes efficient enough room with its space. Place seems to be hoppin at any time you go. An extensive wine list but only about 15 or so beers. Mostly Belgian, St Bernardus, Saison Dupont, Chimay but some local as well, Avery, New Belgium, Odells. The food menu was limited with mostly tappas but some dinners that were an extension of those. Not much quantity and pricey but very very good quality. The staff was friendly enough but didn’t really have much time to talk or ask questions. Seems more of a fancy place but good quality.
