    This place is outstanding! I have dined here several times, it is my go to for special occasions and great steak! As a matter of fact, I always go 30 minutes early to grab a drink or two at the bar before dinner. The bartenders are knowledgeable, friendly, and talented. Our waitress last night, Meghan, was incredible. Attentive, an expert on the menu, and thoroughly explained all aspects of everything that came our way. She provided the history of the cuts of beef down to the location of the farms in Idaho and Japan. A very impressive young lady. I highly recommend the place if you’re looking for an over the top experience with phenomenal food and an incredible staff, from the hostess to the mangers and everyone in between….you will not be disappointed!

    Had a wonderful meal with my wife - I guess you might describe us as ‘Foodies.’ We shared Bangs Island Mussels as our appetizer. It was amazing! Plump mussels with the most intense flavored home made sauce. To have had a whole order each would have been too much. One order between us was enough for an appetizer. We followed up with the Seared Divers Scallops for my wife whilst I had the 14oz Rib Eye steak medium to well done. Both meals were exquisite! The servers Jason and Lindsey were excellent. Jason, a trained sommelier, suggested great wine pairings by the glass. Fabulous meal!

    Started at the bar for a drink, server was very friendly and helpful. Seated by the kitchen which was open so a very cool view, it was a bit louder there but it’s to be expected. The service was amazing, never had an empty glass and knew everything about the menu. Food was fantastic, they cook a little under, I like that, but just a heads up.

    Was a very nice NYE dinner while in town visiting our daughter. The meal and service were very good. My bison NY strip was amazing, my daughter/son-in-law got the porterhouse for 2 and ordered it MR, but wow, it came out so blue I thought it might still have a heartbeat. Luckily, for the most part it was ok for them (it was a massive piece of meat so the rarest parts went home to be reheated for am steak and eggs). My wife didn't care for her american wagyu flat iron. She ordered medium plus and it came out well. It was late in the evening and not a night to complain, with the meal being less about food that night and more about the company and conversation at the table (Southwest messed up our travel plans and it turned out to be a shorter trip than originally planned).

    We had a reservation for New Year’s Eve. Our table for 2, was less than private. However, COWBOY STAR made up for it with the best steak I have ever eaten. No kidding! Service was excellent, even on NYE. It was a little loud, but what would you expect on a party night? I have repeat that the food was delicious. We had NY Strip, Filet, the beets (outrageous), mashed potatoes, and carrot cake. Highly recommend COWBOY STAR!

    It was our Anniversary and Cowboy star goes out of their way to make you feel special. They are very professional and they have the absolute best service. Everything from the drinks to the main course to the dessert is so good it seems like it’s fake. Great place to spend an anniversary or even a date night. We have been there about 50 times since we discovered it and will continue to go back without question.

    Service was good. We got there earlier than our reservation and they were able to seat us. Server knew the menu and was able to help us understand everything. The prices were little higher than expected. Food was very good. I haven’t had a steak that tasted that good in ten plus years. I eat a lot of elk and deer so beef is really plan and no favor. The Wagu New York strip was very tasty.

    Nice warm fire at the entrance to invite you in. Good wine list. The service was amazing! We conveyed my husband's sensitivity to vegetable oils since most steaks are seared in canola oil. They gladly accommodated our request with regard to the steak. Then the kitchen informed our waitress that the tomatoes in the mashed potatoes were also cooked in canola oil. She quickly informed us of this and offered a tasty replacement. My husband's sirloin was cooked to perfection (although it could have been cut a bit thicker). My scallops were amazing! The sides were a variety of flavors that complemented each other perfectly. The fig/orange sorbet had just enough sweetness (I usually don't like sweet desserts) with a unique flavor. All of the staff were very attentive. When we were done, we asked for boxes for our leftovers. Most restaurants just give you the boxes to fill yourself. Then you have to find a place on your table to place them while you try to have dessert around them. The Cowboy Star has an alternative that every restaurant should copy. They took away our leftovers and gave us a ticket that our server would use to fetch them when we were done. Not only that, but they also labeled each container with its contents so, when we got home, we didn't have to open all of them to figure out which was which. Why doesn't every restaurant do this? We will definitely be back soon!

    Everything was outstanding. My steak was the best I have had anywhere. Tons of flavor. Not many people can cook a filet well done with flavor and it still be juicy. Your chef nailed it! Only drawback is music/noise level was a little loud. When we are back in the Springs you are the first place we go eat,

    Disappointing. The service was subpar. Waitress was super friendly, but was too busy to attend to our table. Probably took 25 minutes to get our drinks. Maybe 30 minutes to get a roll (of very mediocre quality- dry). The amuse-bouche had been prepared much earlier in the day and the creamed ingredient had dried out and was stuck to the spoon. Our meals were no culinary feat. The filet was of the same quality of those sold next door at Costco. Served with some basic mashed potatoes and blanched green beans (undercooked in my opinion). We had to flag down the wait staff for our check. In the end we paid about 500.00 for 4 adults and 3 children. We feel that for the amount we paid, service should have been excellent and the food should have been superb. Save your money and eat elsewhere. Massive disappointment.

We have been 4 times now for special occasions and will continue to use Cowboy Star as our go-to restaurant for celebrations. Jason is a great server and an even better sommelier.

    The service across the restaurant stood out as the best part of the experience. Our server, Stephen, was patient and knowledgeable about the menu without being overly intrusive. He made thoughtful recommendations and was always attentive. The food quality was above average, overall. We ordered the American and Japanese Wagyu steaks as it was a special occasion. Both were delicious, and the Japanese Wagyu did stand out as even more tender. The portion sizes were slightly above average, too. All of our guests left full. The only reservation we had was with the bone marrow. We were given a very generous portion and perhaps as a result of that, the inside was slightly undercooked. Given the rest of our meal was perfect and we were already quite full, we didn’t think it was worth it to raise a fuss. Prices were as expected, so hard to say it was a great value, but I gave four stars because the portions were a little bigger than expected. Date of Service: 12/24/22
