Always a pleasure to have an excellent steak at Cowboy Star, but make your reservations early as they are often full on weekend evenings. The service is outstanding, very attentive without being intrusive, and the food is excellent.

We had a reservation for a birthday celebration and we had to wait an additional 45 minutes for a table - any table. Not our requested booth. We were only a party of 4 - not a big party. Other than saying « thanks for being patient » the management did not offer to buy our cocktails while we were waiting or pick up dessert for the table. Will not return.

What I thought was going to be a nice dinner for my one year anniversary turned out to be a mediocre dinner and time. First when we got there it was a nice vibe, the hostess was really sweet. Took about 10 mins to get seated with a reservation. You would expect when you annotate that it’s a special occasion they wouldn’t sit you next to the restrooms. The constant traffic of people walking in and out of the restrooms made an unsatisfying experience. The doors made a creaking sound every time someone walked in and out the restroom. The waiter was very nice and knowledgeable but failed to manage his time throughout all the tables he had. He had a big party and obviously his time was focused on them and not us after they showed up. When I received my 14oz ribeye steak, it was not a 14oz ribeye steak. They served me the wrong meal. After a few mins of waiting for our waiter to come to our table to check on us, he never showed so I flagged down the server to inform her that this was not what I ordered. She took the meal back and 5 mins later as I sat there and watched my girlfriend eat her meal, they brought out my meal. I cut into my meat and noticed it was very difficult to cut through. Then after the second bite getting closer into the center of the steak I was less than like warm. I waited another 10 mins for the waiter to show up but he never did so I flagged down the manager because at this point I was very frustrated. I informed her my steak was less than luke warm and would like my steak to be heated. She came back 5 mins later and my meadium raw ribeye steak I order was nice and hot but also completely charred on the outside. I was very disappointed in the quality of my meal and my experience. I would not recommend this restaurant for a date night nor any other occasion for that matter.

Great food and service! However, I would recommend only getting a booth. The regular table seating is smashed close together usually in a 4 and 2 top arrangement. I was in a 2 top next to an overly loud and obnoxious 4 top, we were sitting together for all reasonable intentions and that was not cool. Besides that the steaks were very good!
