I’ve seen a lot of awesome reviews for Cowboy Star, so we wanted to try it out. We were a little taken back by the $40 charcuterie board, but it was good. The creamed spinach was too salty for me, but the steak was tasty. As with any steakhouse though it’s always a little overpriced. Be prepared for a pricey dinner out.
Always LOVE this restaurant!!! Never disappointed!
By far the best steak in San Diego and one of the best I've had anywhere!
I made reservations for 5:30 pm . The place was almost empty there were several booths available. Ithey sat at at a very small table for two next to a table for four in the same row. I requested a booth. They said they were taken. During dinner, the booths remained empty.
Lovely meal in the back dining room was perfect for our business lunch, and the food was great!
Always awesome ! Jon and Angie always treat us special. First time for my son and his husband they really enjoyed.
Very good restaurant. Pleasant atmosphere and service. Good wine selection. NYC strip steak one of the best in USA. Great recomendation.
Phenomenal spot great apps and awesome place
Possibly my new favorite steakhouse anywhere. I will be returning to confirm.
Food was amazing and Sean gave us the best experience!
Great service. Better food. Recommend sitting at the Chef’s Table (counter seating).
My favorite steak place
Great food and staff in a great atmosphere.
Wonderful food, steaks cooked to perfection. Pricing is a bit breathtaking, however. This place and the menu/pricing seems geared at the business (expense report) crowd. At least half the restaurant seemed to be there on business. That said, they took excellent care of us. Everything we ate and drank was impeccable. If your income is less than $1M annual, I would suggest ordering the rolls. Because they are fresh, buttery and awesome and they are $4. Eat two. Save two. Save some of your steak because the roll filled you up. Take home a little bit of steak and your 2 leftover rolls. Eat the most AMAZING steak sandwich for breakfast the next morning. And now you feel a little better about $200+ for dinner because you got another delicious meal out of it!!
Everything was nice but our steak came out pretty crispy and we ordered the porterhouse medium. I think they wanted to go home because it was close to closing when we received our food.
One of the best dinners I've ever had. Wedge salad was great with thick cut bacon on the side. Steak was cooked perfectly with delicious peppery crust. Chocolate bar dessert is a nice finish and not overly sweet. I can't wait to go back
Excellent food and service.
Best steakhouse in San Diego. Food is amazing and staff are knowledgeable and attentive.
Wagu skirt steak is a hidden gem on the menu. Try sitting at the chef’s counter for a very unique experience.
The bar staff, Keith, Doug and Garth are pros and the restaurant manager, Will leads an amazing wait staff.
I’ve been eating here for 10 years it just keeps getting better, if that is even possible...
A must try. You’ll love it!
the food was incredible, we really loved watching the chefs prepare everything! amazing cocktails as well, and a very attentive and friendly staff.
Great. Drinks, wine, every course including terrific steak first rate.
Everything was excellent...their service, food and ambiance. It was a special occasion and I was impressed that they personalized the menu with my son’s name for his birthday. I personally don’t like rare steaks so I got the medium well wagyu skirt steak and it was still very tender! My son and husband ordered the medium rare ribeye steak and they finished everthing on their plate...The Mac and cheese was the best I’ve ever had as well as the Caesar salad. The Creme brûlée was a great way to end our meal...Glenn, our server did a great job too. Alcohol selection was good too. Will definitely be back in the future for special occasions.
THEE best steak we’ve ever had! I had the Kobe skirt steak and my fiancé had the dry aged bone in ribeye. The mussels we had for our appetizer were amazing too. Our server was very attentive and accommodating. They went above and beyond to ensure that my fiancé had a proper birthday dinner—a greeting printed on our menus and written on our dessert plate along with a candle. We will definitely be back to try the porterhouse steak for two! :) Thank you for a wonderful dining experience!
Outstanding quality, favor and preparation. Cowboy Star is my wife’s and I favorite steakhouse.?the bar is set high and the professional staff always delivers. Cowboy Star is a marvelous location for a great dinner, family event and business dinner.
The food is great. I had the $128 steak with mashed potatoes, it was really good I would order it again. The prices are high for the quantity of food you get BUT the quality is great.
Great space that served up one of the best tasting steaks I’ve ever had. Low-key, knowledgeable, attentive service. A spun-out, decadent redoux of carrot cake is not to be missed!
Really great. All people contact was very positive and food was awesome!
We had a wonderful evening at Cowboy Star! Friends were in town visiting and wanted to go to a great Steakhouse.....we hadn’t been to Cowboy Star for quite sometime but had loved it on previous visits. Once again, it did not disappoint! Food was excellent, prepared exactly as requested. Veronica our server did a wonderful job despite a little mishap with a bottle of champagne .....we felt horrible for her, and I know it was a really uncomfortable situation for her. However, the Manager was quick to help with the clean up (along with several other servers) and all was fine! We were all extremely happy with our every aspect of our evening and there’s no question as to whether we will return! Can’t happen soon enough! Thankyou Cowboy Star!
Great restaurant, food was delicious and the service was perfect.
Highly recommend to visit.
Exceptional service and the most delicious meal I've had in a really long time.
waited about 30 minutes after our reservation and waited at the bar with no place to sit
Cowboy Star is hands down the best restaurant in San Diego.
The menu choices are well thought out and executed with precision, flare and care.
My Wagyu Skirt was ordered Black and Blue and it was perfect. A beautiful sear on the outside and a perfect temperature on the inside.
A special shout out to Joshua, our server. A genteel man with an encyclopedian knowledge of the menu, wine list and anything else you care to know about Cowboy Star.
Always our choice for family celebrations. Even the non-beef esters were happy.
I love this spot -- they have a veggie entree now that is great for vegan / vegetarians. And service is always top notch.
It was very delicious. The service was good, but there was no child to eat.
Nicely designed space, a warm welcoming environment for lunch or dinner. Our group of five order enjoyed great service and the food and drinks were delivered in a timely manner. The food was generally good with a few goof ups....over cooked fries, too much butter and oil and a presentation that was lacking. My salmon entree was over priced at $ 32.00. I will give it another try during the evening since it has such a great reputation.
Uneven, undercook on my dates filet mignon detected after 1/3 eaten. They put the same piece of meat on the grill and brought it back with proper cook. Would expect a new steak given the mess up or at least dessert on the house. Given my good manners, I was sitting talking to date with my steak cooling for 15 minutes while her steak was being re-cooked. No offer to warm up my steak.
Had an amazing evening with my date and the ambiance and food were beyond amazing. Our server was extremely knowledgeable and very professional throughout the whole experience.
