A word from Cousino's Steakhouse
Cousino’s Steakhouse combines dining in casual elegance with the comfort of being in a familiar place. We have been perfecting our menu since 1945 and, while we’ve updated our look, the basics are still the same. We still believe the only way to cook a steak is over an open flame, meal time is family time, and only the freshest ingredients will do. Our warm, friendly atmosphere welcomes back generation after generation, and our fantastic menu never disappoints. Choose from our lighter fare of scrumptious soups, salads, and sandwiches or indulge in our flavorful, juicy signature steaks and chops, deliciously prepared seafood entrees, or a variety of delightful poultry offerings. Our delicious food made us famous, but it’s our unparalleled service that has kept the crowds coming for more than 50 years. When you dine at Cousino’s Steakhouse, you have the feeling that you are surrounded by family. An East Toledo landmark for over half a century.Continued

  • "Long time customer, we have dined here at least 80 times. Last visit was really disappointing. Service was really slow, almost 15 minutes wait to place our order after we got our drinks (not busy at the time, many empty tables).the waitress seemed annoyed when I asked about the seasonal and monthly beer selections and when my Mother in law asked about side dish choices(if you don't want people asking about them print the choices on the menu.) we were disappointed that they no longer bring dinner rolls to the table unless you request them, it would be nice if they asked if you would like some The deep fried Mushrooms were great but,The house sirloins were tasty but was almost 1/3 fat and the French onion soup was nearly tasteless."

  • "As first time diners here, we were very disappointed. Our server had zero personality and acted like we were a nuisance. She didn't even bother asking if we had ever been there or had any questions. We felt very rushed when she came to our table, which was seldom. We enjoyed or appetizers but the entrees were far from anything we would expect from an open table restaurant. I sent my dinner back because it was horrible and was so turned off not only by the dish but also the server that I didn't get anything else. I left disappointed and hungry, and will never go back."

  • "Visited the place on valentines evening. Had reservations so we got seated almost right away. Busy because of the holiday so we were seated upstairs. Servers had a lot to do, but they did well to serve us. Food was very good. Had sirloin steak and shrimp. My wife had pickerel. Both of us enjoyed ourselves. We will go back again."

  • "Our group of 6 had a nice dinner last Friday at Cousino's Steakhouse. We were placed in front of the fireplace on the patio. The food was great, but we were sad the Prime Rib was not available. Our table had steaks, salmon and chicken fingers and all gave thumbs up for their meals. The potato casserole was especially satisfying on that cold snowy evening."

  • "This is a Crown Jewel of a restaurant in Toledo ohio. If you are looking for a great steakhouse in Toledo Ohio, Great food, great atmosphere, great service, this is the place to come. only drawback I found is parking. this place didn't have enough parking, and not a lot of room inside the restaurant to wait to get seated. recommend when you make your reservation you come early to find parking spot. then wait in your car to about 5 minutes before your reservation to go inside. that way you get right in and sit down..."

  • "We called in a 7 o'clock reservation and we were not seated until 7:55 PM After that the service was great the waitressed helped us rush through our meal so we could get to the movie we had planned later on that evening Because of rushing the food order we got our entrées before our appetizers But we were able to make it to our movie even though we were seated almost an hour after our reserved time"

  • "We went on New Year's Eve. I booked a table for 6 that day. Shortly after, the restaurant called me and said they would have to split my party up because the system overbooked large parties. They also advised me that although I had reservations, there may be a wait due to other guests taking longer than normal to finish. I was weary of going after reading reviews on other sights and then this! We had to wait 45 minutes but considering it was New Years Eve, we expected it. As it ended up the hostess got our entire party at one table. Our server, Jenny was great. As busy as they were she kept our drinks filled and was very attentive. All of our food was excellent and everything arrived in a timely manner! We will definitely be going back!"

    Dined on 11/28/2013
  • "The only reason its not a five star rating...pricing! Though the pricing was fair on most of the menu, the difference between the online prices and in-house menu of the porterhouse, was to steep and spoiled the "birthday fun time" a bit. Went with the T-bone instead...let's just say no doggy bag was needed. We will be back for more. Our waitress was very pleasant and personable. Thanks for making our husband and dad's night memorable."

  • "Went to Cousino's to meet up with some friends who we hadn't seen in a while. This is indeed a neighborhood gem with such a variety of diners - young, old and in-between - yet everyone respects each other. Nobody using cell phones & talking so loud everyone could hear (what a treat that is in this day and age), no monopolizing the wait staff, or being just plain obnoxious. This is a great place to meet up with old friends, have a drink and enjoy a great dinner without breaking the bank. Only thing that made it even better was our waitress, who was REALLY great! Friendly, efficient, and very 'with it'! If you go, definitely ask for Jessica - she's a 5 star winner."

  • "I had a 5pm reservation and we walked right in and got a table. But after sitting down we requested to be moved. The AC vent was blowing right on us. We ask to be moved and to my surprise, they moved us right away - no issue. i thought the prices were alittle high but the meal was excellent and our server was terrific. Friendly, knowledgeable and fast. But the decor of the place really needs some attention. In fact, i thought it was a tad on the dumpy side."

  • "Had a great time with old friends. Making my reservation on line was easy and fast and would do it again. The food was hot and cooked to perfection. The special steak special is always my favorite and it tasted as good as I remembered. The service was great, one thing that makes a good server is that they make sure our glasses are full and our server made sure that they were. No one at the table had any complaints and we all cleaned our plates. The appetizer we ordered was very tasty and hot, we had the fired veggies. I will be returning soon and I hope that I get the great food and service I did this time. Great Job!!!"

I don't think one person left hungry or dissatisfied. The service was awesome!!! The food delious especially the deserts, I know three of us took home a piece of cheese cake - mine was toped with chocolate sauce. I had never had it that way and it was perfect."
