Great food! Cool historic unique ambience! Staff Mark was wonderful. Went out of his way to make us happy!
Service is exceptional. Neighborhood is fun, food is unique and scrumptious. I remember this restaurant as more upscale. We haven’t been in a couple of years. Maybe because it was so empty on a Sunday evening, I could see all the aging. Don’t be deterred. The drinks are well made and if you are a wine lover, the wine selection is vast and has a history worth checking out. The wine list itself is fun reading. Grilled shrimp over a cream infused hominy base, Smokey short rib with grilled Brussels sprouts, pesto house salad dressing, all really different and wonderful.
The food is fantastic, the Stetson salad was amazing, the Tiger Prawns were delicious and service by Jeremy was incredible. He paired our food with the right wine. We love to visit Cowboy Ciao when we come to Scottsdale. Never disappointed!
Party of 4, and we all ordered the amazing Stetson Chopped Salad along with different appetizers. The food was excellent! They don’t have a wine list, they have a wine book! Our server simply asked us for a budget and varietal, and she recommended an excellent wine so we skipped the book. Food, wine and service was outstanding!
Our final meal of family vacation, we are foodies and this place did not disappoint. The Stenson chopped salad is a must! Absolutely one of the best I have ever had. Very different than one would think. Tuna poke bowl as an appetizer was also amazing. Would highly recommend this restaurant.
GREAT LOCATION CLOSE TO OLD TOWN SCOTTSDALE. QUIRKY MENU AND AVERAGE FOOD.
Always so good. I have to go at least once when I am in Scottsdale for the Stetson salad.
Cowboy Ciao is on of Old Scottsdale’s best restaurants. We have been visiting Scottsdale for years and ALWAYS make a point to dine at Cowboy Ciao!
It was a great restaurant and the food was delicious! They just didn’t have many of the wines that are in their expansive wine book. We ended settling on something that was just ok. I would go again but order a cocktail instead!
Dinner was perfect! Of course we got the Stetson Chopped to start. Ordered the Pastrami Style Short Rib to split (of course the meat was amazing but the Brussels sprouts and mustard mashed potatoes...yum!). Also ordered the bread with bacon fat and truffle Mac n cheese. Everything was absolutely delicious. Our server was attentive but not on top of our table, which is how I like to be waited on.
We had a great time celebrating a wedding anniversary with our friends. Everything was great!
We come here every time we are in the Phoenix area and it never disappoints!
Great mushroom dish and steak. I recommend getting the appetizer size mushroom dish since it is pretty creamy and would be to much as an entree.
23 years coming to C C - nothing matches Stetson salad and the trout was my favorite of many years! Wish our server could appreciate she is working in a special place - she was definitely robotic on Fri 4/6. No matter...as a server once told us in 1998 “we’re all responsible for our own karma” A lasting mantra!
Awesome food!! Little noisy to hear guests across the table!
Best salad ever
Fantastic again! Always a favorite
Was thinking it was a brunch for Easter and it was just their regular lunch menu.
Great service. Very good innovative food. Description on menu, IMO, of dishes need to be more specific, less flowery wording.
The truth is; the chop salad keeps us coming back. We were all pretty disappointed in the meat this time. Far too much peppercorn, couldn’t even taste the meat which is terrible when you are spending a decent amount of $ on it. Sides were tasty.
Mushroom dish is Delicious!
Came to try the salad from the "Best Thing I Ever Ate" - did not disappoint! Fabulous salad.
Obnoxiously loud; our party of three couldn’t hear each other talk. Was a relief to get out of the venue!
Cowboy Ciao has become a Spring Training tradition for my group. The service is first class and the food is definitely something to look forward to. Everyone seems to agree that the Cobb salad is about as good as it gets. With regard to the entree, the exotic mushroom dish is fantastic but you really can’t go wrong
The flat iron steak was very tough. The scallops were mediocre and the bruschetta has too much garlic.
Started off fantastic, Mark our waiter was professional, engaging and efficient. As our dinner arrived a large party of 8 arrived and continued to yell in conversation til we left without having desert. The table next to us also commented on their lack of manners and consideration of other diners...people go to a sports bar if you need to yell to converse.
The food was fun and very tasty. Most of our group had never eaten there before and we all really enjoyed it. Most of us tried the appetizers, salads and the small plates and it was plenty of food--especially after the Stetson salad and the ciabatta bread. Both Yummy!
We are all > 65 and so our hearing is not great and the noise level was soooo loud that it was hard to hear each other. That was our only complaint.
It was AWESOME!!
Food exceeded our expectations. The service was impeccable. Heard it was good, so we thought we would try it. I am a return customer.
The Stenton chopped salad everyone raves about is average. The cheese board had crumbled blue cheese on it??? The mushroom dish lacked salt and just seemed like an absorbent amount of sauce with nothing to add to it. Nothing was worth the price.
Service was terrible. We had to flag the waitress down to take our order, and then waited 45 minutes for our food to arrive. Half our party had the Stetson salad, which looked like it had sat in the serving area for a while. Too noisy to carry on a conversation
Excellent service, excellent meal. Great suggestions from our server. Delicious drinks--I would definitely recommend and would dine there again.
Chopped salad lived up to the legend. A truly memorable meal.
My third time at Cowboy Ciao and it keeps getting better.
The food is absolutely amazing here!! The Stetson Chop salad is hands down one of the greatest items.
Nice place - The chopped salad is always good. The wild boar chop was great - loved the potato salad. They overcooked one of the steaks, but overall a nice dinner
This was our fourth trip to Cowboy Ciao. We have had three good meals there previously. Last trip was 2 years ago. We had a family dinner for 4 there for our vacation, and the food was disappointing this time. It was really nothing very special, which surprised us. The desserts were especially poor this time. The bread pudding was dry and the ice cream not as good as we remembered.
One of the best meals I've had in sometime! Great wine, excellent food. Can't ask for more.
Great time. Food and service was outstanding
Amazing food- chopped salad & short rib were amazing!
