Delicious food, great service, will certainly be back.

Fantastic Fondue find!
Slightly off the beaten path, it doesn't seem to be a well known place. However, we took the risk and it was worth it! They have fantastic fondue, with unique and tasty options. They are open to changes to their menu options as well for a customizable experience. Old country music plays in the background, and old Western movies play muted on a big screen tv above the bar. They also offered half price happy hour at the bar!!

The main host was a bit unwelcoming
The main host was a bit unwelcoming, made us feel rushed and a bit uncomfortable since we were late to our reservation, despite calling them and advising them of our situation. Other than that, we loved the food and the reasonable price for fondue. We'd go back.

A great place for good conversation
A great place for good conversations over some tasty snacks. The fondue was excellent and the servers helpful and accommodating to some special requests (e.g. no garlic in one pot). We had a group of 4 and it was a fun time for all. Plenty of food, good cocktails, wine and beer and a generally laid-back feel to the place made for a fantastic evening!

Very fun place with yummy
Very fun place with yummy fondue. The salad portions are huge and tasty. The chocolate fondue was enough for two people. The dark chocolate cayenne was delicious and the fruit and dessert/bread assortment was amazing.
I would definitely return--great service and such a fun theme!

Really enjoyed the meal.
Really enjoyed the meal. While it is a little pricey, you have to understand that you are paying for a "long meal" as well as the food itself. (It is highly likely you will hold a table for between 1 and 2 hours while you dine.) The wait staff was excellent and friendly, the dipping items were plentiful.
I couldn't believe how tasty the marshmallows were in the milk chocolate! Yum!

We had a great time here for
We had a great time here for my friend's birthday. The fondue was more unique than other places and the dark chocolate with the cayenne was so delicious. We had Lauren as a server and she was wonderful. Highly recommend this place for a fun, intimate dinner, or even a place to stop for snacking.

Cute, little fondue place
I've only been to a couple of fondue restaurants (melting pot and la fondue), so I just assumed that this restaurant would be similar. It's actually quite different. The other places have you cook your own food... kind of a cool experience. Here, the food is all cooked for you... you just dip and eat. Also, the place is tiny. There's about 5 tables and a bar (where you can order fondue, I believe). So you better make reservations. The food was good though. The atmosphere is nice... looks like a cool place to hang out in San Francisco.

Great little location for fun!
Delicious food with great options. This is a fun place for a date or a ladies night. The cheese fondue is amazing, we had the traditional. It usually comes with grapes, apples, olives, gherkins, bread, and potatoes to dip. We also got the salami, cured meat platter that also came with melon. The cured meat fit so well and so wonderfully. The dark chocolate with cayenne dip is also very amazing! The dips are really great for up to two people, but we had a little more in our group. The salad is a large size and pretty filling as well. I would definitely return!

We went using a Blackboardeats coupon. It was good for a free bottle of wine. To our surprise, the wine was a $36 bottle of wine. It went so well with our fondue. The fondue was great wih plenty of interesting pieces of bread, apple, grapes, olives, ect. to dip into the cheese. We also enjoyed pieces of steak dipped into the hot delicious cheese. Our waiter was such a sweetie. Do go and have fun.

A really great place
I usually think of fondue as more of a special evening out type of thing, but the food was so great and the prices so reasonable that I'm thinking about making it a regular place to eat.

One Word -- CHEESE!
Have loved this restaurant for years, I lived 2 blocks away. Finally had the right opportunity to take a group of 10. They all fell in love with Fondue Cowboy. The restaurant is funky and fun, the staff really great and never annoying. Fondue is just plain fun. We had the BEST time, loved the fondue & presentation, had 5 different kinds of cheese fondue and 2 desserts...all to share. Can't wait for the next opportunity to take a group of friends or co-workers to Fondue Cowboy!!!!!!!!!!

Good, fun, cheap.
Ohhhh yeah! I liked this place A LOT. I am a big fan of fondue and this place did not disappoint. It should be noted that it's cheese and chocolate fondue only (no meat to dip in boiling oil) which is too bad, so the menu is very limited, but also very good. It should also be noted that it's extremely cheap. $25 for a cheese fondue plate (which is plenty of food for 2 people) $20 for chocolate fondue. I was there on a date. We got one of the cheese fondues, a side of sausage ($8 or $12 -- can't remember) and one of the chololate fondues for dessert. It was too much food -- we only got about halfway through dessert. $60 for a nice dinner for two.... can't beat that. 5 star overall score for value.

Fun and social
The fondues are tasty and the dipping ingredients are really fresh and good. Nice to have this restaurant in the SOMA neighborhood!

Great blends of fondue, many food items for dipping (pickles, olives, broccoli, grapes, apples & bread)!
6/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went as a group of 10 and shared fondues. We all agreed that they were delicious! The restaurant is small , so we pretty much took it over on a Tuesday night. Service was attentive and friendly.
7/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
I would definitely come back. Nice ambiance inside and attentive but not intrusive service. We went on a Wednesday night and the place was quiet. The cheddar based fondue was great, and with a side of hot links we had a filling meal. The restaurant has a small beer list, but they're all good. I would definitely go back.

All in all we enjoyed our experience at Fondue Cowboy.
The food was decent and the staff very good.
The only negative thing that was mentioned with our group was the painful seating.

We had a wonderful time at Fondue Cowboy! The fondue was great and all of the dipping options were fun. There was just two of us having a romantic-type dinner and off to our side was a group having a great time as well. I recommend it for any occasion.
We had a cheese fondue, a delicious salad and the chocolate fondue for dessert--all accompanied by a great wine list.

We had an excellent meal here. Most importantly, they were willing to adjust the fondue mixes to our taste. The cheese fondues were good and we liked the fact that they were not too thick. In addition to the bread, fruit and veggies that come with the cheese fondue, we ordered the grilled beef. The beef was very tender and flavorful, so it was a good addition. We also had salads, which come in personal or large (for sharing) size. My only complaint would be that the beet salad was a bit shy on beets. We finished with the dark chocolate fondue, which was excellent.
This is a very small restaurant, six tables and a 12-person bar (at which food is served), so reservations are essential during busy periods. Service was good and friendly.

Great food & service. Will come back with a group next time.

We got in to San Francisco
We got in to San Francisco late and were staying at the Intercontinental by the convention center and wanted a place close by. This was a pleasant surprise. The fondu, salad and cured meats were all delicious, and the wine matched perfectly. It was not crowded on a late Thursday night and we really enjoyed ourselves.

Go-To Favorite for Special Nights
This is hands down my favorite restaurant in San Francisco and I go whenever I have an excuse - most recently, my husband and I met my parents there for my 30th birthday. The food is delicious and the ambiance is great. My favorite fondue dish is the Outlaw. Great for vegetarians, but meatlovers can spring for the sirloin plate. Dark chocolate fondue dessert with a dash cayenne pepper - can't be beat.

I went for my 2 year Anniversary
I went for my 2 year Anniversary with my boyfriend and we had an amazing time! The Fondue was beyond good and we had an
excellent. Our waitress was attentive and sweet and recommended a great bottle of Merlot to go with our dinner.
I would absolutely go again.
If you like classy, cozy dining and good food and drinks, the Fondue Cowboy is a must.

Fantastic Group Dinner
We had a great group dinner for 14 on Sunday night. The venue is small, but if you are able to grab a larger reservation on a weekday night, it's a great place for a social group gathering. The fondue is excellent, particularly the chocolate dessert. Highly recommended!

Great team-building dinner
I brought my new work team here for dinner and it was a great place to bond and build relationships. We all enjoyed the food and interacted well together. Everyone felt so relaxed and happy I was able to convince them to go out to karaoke later.

Great place to relax for dinner. The tenderloin was melt in your mouth good.

Always a treat!
I always have a great time dining at Fondue Cowboy! The choices are great. Service is superb. The experience is always memorable!

Fun place for after work happy hour
My husband & I have been here twice and both times we have had a good experience. The food is good. We always get a glass of wine on tap and a sausage plate to go with the fondue.
Both times there was a large group and the restaurant was lively.

So much fun
Fondue Cowboy is a great spot for a couple people or a large group. We celebrated a birthday here with a party of 12. Fondue w/a big group was festive & fun. The fondue was delicious (I love the Rawhide) and the salads were great too. Very fun ambiance. I highly recommend Fondue Cowboy!
