Don’t split the chop salad... you need an entire one to yourself!!! Best part of the meal.
Love the food here—but service has declined over the years. Hoping it improves
Purchased a gift card....but it was a “gift certificate”....which will have to be recreated if total amount is not used. I would have preferred to give my gift as a “gift card” for ease of use.
Love the Stetson salad! Great service, unique food. Brought teenage boys and they loved the steak dish, truffle Mac, and poke. Great experience!
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!
We were very much looking forward to going to Cowboy Ciou but our experience was not as good as we hoped for. Our waitress Maloney did not meet our expectations. She was constantly rushing us to order and constantly asking for our menus. The worst part was when we asked to have our mushroom dish packed to go and she put our dirty silverware in the bowl. I had to remove them. The buffalo carpaccio was excellent. The mushroom dish did not have texture and had grit in it and the duck savor dish was over smoked. We were there to celebrate our anniversary and the perk was a shot. Really???
The chopped salad is so amazing- I crave it all the time!!!!! The wine list is unbeatable and so much fun.
As a group of sisters visiting from out of town we were looking forward to trying the famed Stetson Chopped Salad. We also wanted to try several appetizers between the 6 of us. Sadly we were given the hard sell by our waiter to order entrees. Even so far as our waiter, when ordering a cheese plate, saying “we just buy 4 cheeses and throw them on a plate - you can get that anywhere”... WHAT?! We’re grown-ups, thank you, we want what we want, and by the way, we’re PAYING for it. Unbelievable!
Really enjoyed our dinner here. Loved the ambiance. Will go back.
Unreal chopped salad. Had the Boar Chop and was picking the meat off the bone. Took my coworkers here for a meal on a recommendation from my brother-in-law and was not disappointed. A must do for foodies.
Don’t order the wild boar. Not a good dish. Meat was not trimmed well, green beans had some sort string vinigar on them. Wine list is very extensive, if they have it in stock.
Cowboy Ciao is known for its chopped salad. I found it a bit bland for my taste buds. Having conversation with friends is literally impossible because the noise level was deafening. CC had come highly recommended, and I will recommend it, but I’m in no hurry to return.
We had been referred to Cowboy Ciao by a friend in Dallas. I had the mushroom “pan fry” which consisted of a great variety of different types of mushrooms over two polenta cakes drowned (swimming actually) in a bland cream sauce. The mushrooms were very good; but the polenta cakes and quantity of bland cream sauce killed the dish. My wife had the brisket sandwich - brisket great; but, the overall sandwich was soggy and the carmelized onions overpowered the dish.
The best wine list I've seen.
Waitstaff had too many tables! Had to wait for drink refills and didn’t order desert cuz it would have taken too long.
Delicious as always! Got to have the chopped salad!!
Amazing place - consistent, unique and delicious menu, fantastic server and a wine list that is the best around
Not a giant menu but choices of all kinds from soups, salads, and of course some very interesting taste options. I did the exotic mushroom fry with polenta- excellent variety and textures. It run of the mill wines by the glass. Fast service and plenty of quantity. Definite recc for lunch!
Excellent food and service. Always a winner! Their award winning salad continues to amaze and the sandwiches were so tasty
