All the food was really salty. I’m not sure if that’s because it is supposed to be a Texas style. Asked for a steak that was medium well. They tried two times and it was either either over cooked or not cooked enough. They couldn’t get it quite right.
Felt a little rushed. Conversations kept being interrupted with some constantly picking up dishes,asking if we wanted another drink when we had only taken a few sips of the first one. My second drink wasn’t right because I think the waiter couldn’t hear me due to the high noise level. Very, very loud (seated by the back party room).
Great service, great food (filet mignon and venison), would definitely recommend to any meat lovers.
Everything was amazing great cocktails, food and service.
The food was phenomenal, the service outstanding, & the atmosphere cozy & romantic. This is definitely a place for foodies & special occasions. I will certainly be coming back.
This was our second visit to Cowboy Star and it was as good as we remembered. The food is top notch and the service is on point. We really enjoyed the dining experience but the star of the meal was definitely the steak. Cooked to perfection and very tasty.
Celebrated a 50th birthday and it was perfect. Food was amazing and a great atmosphere.
Everything was amazing
We had a wonderful time and we plan on coming back again soon.
The staff is so amazing, super helpful, informative, kind. Best customer service. I took my husband here for our anniversary last night and he absolutely loved it!!! The quality of service in which the staff provided, was seriously so awesome. And the FOOD!! Steak was cooked to perfection and the brioche bread pudding was *chefs kiss* 100000000/10 would recommend!!
My husband and I have dinner at Cowboy Star on our birthdays, every year. It makes our celebration extra special. The food, service, and atmosphere are wonderful. We plan to return for many years to come!
Wonderful service. Food is always good here. Only complaint is there should be valet service. Parking is hard. But what do you expect, it’s downtown. Everything from food to service is excellent.
My girlfriend and I, first experience at the Cowboystar was very amazing. The waiters that were serving were very attentive and overall had great customer service. The food was absolutely awesome every bang for your buck. This place is very recommended but a bit pricey. Hands down one of the top steakhouses in the San Diego area.
First timer. Entree took 54 minutes to come out from when it was ordered and our $50 something steaks were just warm. Our waitress let us wait and didn’t offer to make it right or offer something to eat while we waited. We came for a birthday and we were surprised they charge you for birthday dessert. Not to mention, the receipt offers you to pay from your phone, but it wasn’t as seamless as you’d think. After errors and “something went wrong messages” for several minutes, we weren’t even sure if we paid and had to ask another waiter to check. Crossed it off our list, but wasn’t $300 tab worthy.
We went with a group of friends for my husband's birthday. Very nice experience, friendly staff. The food was great. We all shared 2 steaks options, which was more than enough for 6 people.
Birthday dinner. Everything was great. Food, service, cocktail,wine. Highly recommended for a special occasion.
Best to eat in a booth. We did and enjoyed our time. It really reminded me of a steak house in a casino in Las Vegas.
I would definitely come back here. The food and service was top notch. My life and I enjoy our anniversary but this establishment.
Food was outstanding. Service was very clean. Definitely worth the few extra bucks compared to Chain Steak Houses. Only disappointment, we were looking forward to seeing Jon & Angie.
So great from start to finish — front desk staff was super helpful with our reservation changes and the servers were all very attentive, friendly and helpful with suggestions.
Came here to celebrate a new job. The oysters were good and bread “service” was delicious. I have no idea why it’s called bread service or why this bread is not complimentary, it’s just bread with butter, delicious but it’s basic. The filet was also very good, best steak I’ve had in a long time.
Service was the only thing lacking. The server had an attitude and it seemed liked we were inconveniencing them. Though the supporting staff was good and made up for the server.
We came to celebrate our friends birthday and it was amazing definitely will be back
Delicious steak. What a treat to watch the staff at the counter
Clearly overrated. Food ok, ambiance boring and service was acceptable. Price/ quality clearly not good enough
Service was great. We sat at the chef counter and watched all the amazing meals be prepared.
Our wait staff was the perfect amount of attentive. The food was delicious.
Mi mejor lugar de carnes de usa, altamente recomendable, buena carne
I think this some of the best service in san diego. The food is always amazing
small touches make a big impression.
the phenomenal food and service doesn’t hurt, either, can’t wait to get back!
Incredible meal and service
Great steak and great service. You get what you pay for! Everything was delicious and servings were generous.
Service was excellent, food was delicious. We had a seat at the counter in front of the kitchen and the service was just like being at a table but we got the show of the kitchen.
We sat at the counter and could watch the kitchen prepare and plate the food. They were so meticulous it was fascinating to watch.
From start to finish, the experience was exceptional, add in the food and words can’t describe their evening.
Amazing! Food was incredible!!
This was our first trip to Cowboy Star and it was a fantastic experience. The service was great and the steaks were delicious. The food is expensive, but in line with other high end steak houses. Reservations are a must.
Cowboy Star never disappoints. From the cocktails to the dessert, everything is prepared perfectly, and often with just a twist to make it interesting, but not so crazy that it takes away from what you came for: an awesome steak (fish selections are great too). The service was excellent (thank you, Veronica and your assistant —- I’m sorry I forgot his name!).
This restaurant will always be top of our list for good food on a special occasion!
Always consistent and never disappoints.
Food and service were excellent. Good cocktails also. Everything was prepared just as it should have been.
First time here and was not disappointed. Everything was world class.
My husband and I went for our honeymoon and it was such a great experience. The ambiance was romantic and the service was excellent. The food was amazing and our waiter gave excellent recommendations. It was the perfect night out!
