I gave my husband three restaurant choices for his birthday and I am glad he picked Cowboy Star. I had never been here and always like to try new restaurants. I was very pleased with our choice. First of all I loved our table for two which was a round small booth. It was cozy. My husband had a Caesar salad - his go to- for an appetizer salad and I had the piccata sweetbreads. There are not too mNy restaurants in town thAt serves sweetbreads and I really like them. Have to say these did not disappoint- they were up there with one of the best I’ve ever had. Then we shared a large rib eye steak and ordered the mushrooms as well. We usually order steak rare but at the suggestion of our wonderful waiter we ordered medium rare and it was perfect. So tender... then for dessert we had bread pudding my husband is not a dessert eater but he loves breAd pudding. It was delicious- Also one last thing we had decaf coffee in a French press - I am a coffee lover- I have mine sent from Colorado because of a great restaurant experience we had in Estes Park. This coffee was just as good - I meant to ask what kind it was- if you can let me know I would appreciate it. Lastly but not least- our waiter was fabulous. I am embarrassed to say I don’t remember his name- I just know he is an attorney as well. He was very knowledgeable about the menu, wines and a great conversationalist. We will be back.

I came for dinner with a girlfriend. Our waiter was extremely pushy from the get go. We wanted to share an entree and he wouldn't stop pushing us to order more dishes. We shared an appetizer, salad, and entree. The food was good. There was something off in the tuna tartare. The wedge salad was excellent, and the scallop dish was good. The prices are ridiculous and not tied to reality in any way. $46 for a scallop dish is absurd. Yes we pay for the creativity and not just the ingredients, but come on. This is downtown price-gauging and there's no other way to put it. No wonder the restaurant was mostly empty.

We celebrated our son coming home from college at his favorite restaurant. Fantastic meal as always. First time back since their remodel of the bar area. Looks great. Would definitely go back and eat in this area.

New remodel is nice, food exceptional as always, had a few attempts to get one of the steaks prepared to the correct temp but overall was a good experience.

The service was great. The appetizers were delicious. Our steaks and sides needed seasoning.
