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!
Aged steak is the way to go!!! Skip the scallop. Get the oysters!
So incredible. Best meal I’ve had in San Diego in a long time. They went above and beyond for my birthday. Such a special evening.
Great service, great ambiance, great food
C-Star has been my go-to for steak in San Diego, but the last two times, the steak has not been that good. I usually order the NY Strip and it has been subpar. This last time it was hard and did not have the delicious flavor that once made C-Star my fave.
After this last dinner, I am considering not going back.
Great food. Steak was perfectly done. Waitress was attentive and pleasant.
Everything was delicious, the service was excellent. Especially like the skirt steak - we've ordered that and the 14 oz bone-in ribeye together a few times now and the skirt steak is always our favorite.
Surprised to be charged for bread $6, very pricey restaurant. Good food, still would recommend it. Just be prepared to drop a few hundred especially if you have a few drinks as well. $14-$17 for a cocktail
Great customer service. Personalized menus for my fiancees birthday. Our server was fantastic. Incredibly helpful. Received a complimentary amuse bouche from the chef and dessert.
Phenomenal food and service! Thank you!
A usual favorite but a big miss on a special birthday. Despite it being stated in the reservation and addressing it with the hostess personally, they never even acknowledged the birthday let alone a treat after dinner.
Amazing dinner at Cowboy star. Excellent service from our waiter Mark. We were sent to heaven after one bite! Starting with the bread service to Wagyu steak and finish with abuelita s'more 😋
Impeccable service. Food prepared as requested and delivered timely
Steak was horrific! I returned it because it was cold and they brought me back the same one and it was still cold and no flavor! If I could find a way to prove that the steak was not a prime steak, I would do it because I have had prime steaks at some of the worlds best steak houses and they all and I mean ALL are better than the steak I had at Cowboy Star!! I didn't even eat half of my rib eye, and I will never be back to this pathetic restaurant!!!!
Cowboy star has been our go to and we have been here plenty of times and have had a wonderful 5 star experience but today was just underwhelming and disappointing. The meat was undercooked and raw and the seafood was a bit too fishy if you know what i mean. My husband had to spend the night using the restroom and i woke up several times to the sounds of him “exploding”. Service is normally always on top of their stuff but that day, the waitress forgot our drinks. Lame but important. Maybe it was the new cooks and preps in training but it did leave a bad taste in my mouth. And to pay $250+ on this type of experience is just a waste of money. Proceed with caution and check your meats.
