Was not as attentive - exceptionally loud - food was good, service was ok.
We enjoyed our dinners - they were excellent and nice service sizes. The waitress, however, was not the best. Our friend said he wanted to have a Chardonnay, and she brought him one even though he had not selected from the list yet. It was not very good, but he did not ask her to take it back. Ordering a bottle of wine was a similar experience. Her recommendation was not a good one and we were disappointed in it. I looked it up later, it was a $15 bottle and we paid in the $40+ range. I have been to Cowboy Ciao’s over the years and always have enjoyed it. The service this time was poor though.
Had not been here in a long time. Dined here for Valentines Day. Service was excellent. Food was great. I will definitely be back
I was there twice in two days! The first experience was great, the second was a bit below average. The hostess on the 2nd night could use some customer service training. I made a reservation for 2, but it was supposed to be 3. When we checked as 3, she was visibly annoyed, but the restaurant was half empty. I asked her if it was an issue and she said "I need to make sure we have servers"? Confusing. So you have a server for 2 people but not 3? Anyway, the food was great, service was a bit slow but the server was very nice. I'd go again but maybe skip Tuesday's.
There are two wings to the restaurant. The right side with the curved windows has better ambiance. Food is FANTASTIC -- a gastronomer's and wine-lover's delight. Our party shared a smoked salmon cobb salad, mixed table-side, to get us going. It was crazy good. Our guest had a mushroom entree with polenta that tasted like the 'shrooms had just been harvested; however, my "small plate" size was plenty. The juniper-mesquite-grilled duck was out of this world, and the pastri-styled short rib tasted as advertised. The only things that were lacking: We sat on the left, less-interesting side of the restaurant by the wall, and our server ignored us much of the time -- hence only two stars for service.
Cowboy Ciao never disappoints...food is delicious and service and ambiance are outstanding.
Outstanding, as always
We had been anxious to return to Cowboy Ciao which we discovered with friends a few years ago. The drive for us from the Chandler area is about 1/2 hour or more and very much worthwhile.
Stetson Salad - the best we have ever tasted, any where in the world. Could make a meal of just this, wife and I split it as do our friends
Short rib - excellent, but the star of this meal is the mashed potatoes. Primo, could make a meal of the potatoes alone they are that good
Flank steak - Wife ordered this, as tender as a filet and tasty, tasty, tasty
Desert - all are incredible and creative, but I always go back to the Canadian something or other. Peanut butter, chocolate, ice cream, man!
Service - Couldn't be better, didn't catch our waiters name but he is easy to spot as he could be playing center in the NBA
Ambeince - A loud room due to hard surfaces. Unfortunate that we had to suffer a group of 5 Man Boys, loud mouth is an understatement. Our waiter equally disturbed by these guys but management never made an effort to ask them to turn it down a notch or two. Mistake on Cowboy Ciao part as everyone around us were interrupted and annoyed.
All in all, Cowboy Ciao is always a top drawer dining experience, and the immediate area makes for a nice evening walk
We had a great time. Love the chopped salad and scallops to start. Trout and filet were fabulous.
Excellent service and for choices. My wife got the chopped salad and mini mushroom pan fry and I enjoyed the boar chop. We were celebrating our honeymoon and our server graciously served us some pink rose and brought us a complimentary slice of cake for the road since the meal was so filling. Definitely a go to place with excellent service!
