    These days, exceptional dining experiences are hard to find. Not here! It took me awhile to get a reservation for a Saturday evening but I persisted. Just a wonderful evening from the service provided by Julie and the culinary talents of the kitchen. The Filet Mignon I had was the best since I can remember. Perfectly cooked and complimented with Compound Butter sauce suggested by Julie. Such a treated to have a small side salad included with the entree. I watch my diet and never enjoy over eating at dinner. It was perfect. The Rioja wine Julie suggested was wonderful and hope we are at her station again. While I did not have dessert the menu looked good for that. Will I return, absolutely and may make that reservation today!

    We just had a great meal at Black Cow Chop house. We would rate it the best meal we have enjoyed here in Charlottesville, and we have been most of the highly rated restaurants around. I’d even rate the meal higher than Ruth’s Chris Our server, Valarie, was fantastic. She took the time to go over the vast offerings, and made great recommendations throughout the meal. The steak and the Fried Brussels Sprouts were fantastic. I am not one to give 5 stars often, but Black Cow Chophouse deserves it, and Valarie should get 6 or 7 stars. Thanks for the great dinner.

    So my wife and I sat were slightly late to our reservation and were greeted promptly as we entered the restaurant by a warm greeting. We were taken to a two top by the back door in the far back left which honestly had it not been raining was probably the best seat in the house for two people! My wife and I had Catie (Sp?) as our server and she went over how the menu works, how the sides were family style, and then accommodated my wife’s wants for her cocktail. She had a raspberry lemon drop martini and I had the old fashioned which were delicious! $8 old fashioned in the heart of Charlottesville?? Yes. Yes. Yes. We had two filet mignon midrare and mine was more midrare than my wife’s but honestly I tried both and they were both fantastic, my wife is more of a stickler than I am so we swapped steaks, but it was so juicy. The garlic onions were a hit along with every bite! The lobster Mac and cheese was a giant skillet (enough for 4) and was great! Could have had maybe a bit more lobster in it, but the Mac n cheese was so good i could not complain! Round two of drinks were also fantastic! My wife and I are already looking forward to the next time we dine here! I think we might try the steak frites on happy hour next time! Thank you Catie(Sp?)! As a fellow industry member, we will be back! Next time we plan to bring the in-laws!
