8 oz. Wagyu Skirt Steak*
our American "kobe style" steak from Snake River Farms is known for its intense marbling
Chocolate Chip Bread Pudding
house made brioche with chocolate chips, topped with warm butterscotch sauce, and served with chocolate ice cream
14 oz. Ribeye Steak*
remarkably tender and flavorful, our Ribeye is Prime Natural from Double R Ranch in Loomis, WA, and aged for 21 days
Food was beyond our expectations! Mussels ,Brussels sprouts, bone in ribeye were out of this world! Will visit again when in San Diego again for sure!!! Very impressed with the personalized birthday menu!
Wonderful dinner! The food, wine and service were amazing! Thank you
Amazing as usual. They absolutely kill it.
My family always goes to celebrate everyone in the family birthdays, like a treat !! Every time the steaks have been incredible delicious, best steak ever ... we were looking forward after Covid 19 - not been able to dine in , we were so excited to go there, all three of us were disappointed as to the quality of the beef for the price, it was not cooked to perfection as before, didn't taste that great.
We hope that this might be temporary as we are coming out of the pandemic and the suppliers / vendors are back to "normal".
It was amazing! As usual and of course! Service was superb .. food to die for! Favorite steak house! Always love to go n never disappointed!
Love the environment, the service and of course, the food!
Not a fan of their new wine corking policy limiting two bottles per reservation!
We went for my best friends birthday and we had the most amazing time. Our waiter helped us choose appetizers that were AMAZING. Drinks were amazing. Everything was amazing. 10/10 recommend.
Food with no flavor, poor food pairing and poor seasoning.
Prosciutto broth over Salmon, really???
Referred to this spot from a local, me and my husband visiting. And we were very impressed!! Great food and service
Came in a little underdressed but the staff was very welcoming, as well as the party sitting next to us. The food was amazing. We will be back
The location of the restaurant even being in downtown San Diego area, it is not a prime location. The price on wines are ridiculous (ie. Melville Santa Rita $80 when the bottle costs less than $20 and at other restaurants they have it around $45-$50).
“The food is exquisite”.
Wonderful staff especially our server Josh. He was absolutely outstanding. Thanks for making my birthday exceptional! The food is outstanding as well. Perfect rare porterhouse. The steak tartare is what I imagine heaven is made out of. Don’t even get my fiancé started about the Mac and Cheese or that blow your mind banana pudding!
We visited last July while out west for our honeymoon. Made the trip back from UCLA visit to dine there again. Everything is delicious great service.
The service was great and of course the food was amazing. It was our first real dinner in a year, it was a great choice.
We enjoyed the food, service and ambiance. Great place to celebrate a birthday.
The dining experience was the best. The service was beyond reproach because of the quality of the food, ambience and the above standard service. It was completed with the personal gift of the menu with the birthday girls name.
I have had better steaks. Good appetizers, but I could have made better steak.
Excellent table service, warm atmosphere, and great steaks!
Was out of this world!!!!
Great restaurant and always consistent.
Great place, service & food...I had dinner, conversation and a fantastic time.
Impeccable servicing and amazing food.
We can’t wait to go back.
You know that feeling you have when you are craving a steak - a really good one?
Eat here and your craving will be satisfied 100%.
Went for my husbands birthday after quite the year. Service was amazing, food was delicious, they followed all health guidelines, & was just as amazing as the last time we went!
Small table for 2 while other 2 tops were seated at booths. 20 minute lag for salad after appetizers. Steak was just okay and macaroni and cheese was dry.
Always a good experience at Cowboy Star. It's worth every penny.
So happy to see them open again and we'll be there to support them.
It is always such a treat to come here. The staff are incredibly attentive and the food is fantastic. On our most recent trip, my husband and I ordered a flank and a ribeye and added a scallop for each of us, 3oz of king crab, mushrooms, and chimichurri. The server offered to bring the meats out family style and it was all cooked to perfection! The meals also came with asparagus and the best mashed potatoes ever. The wine list is diverse and the crème brûlée is divine. We recommend Cowboy Star to everyone looking for a really great steak. So pleased!
All around great!
Food and service were exceptional as always!
Chef Victor and team always deliver fantastic food and outstanding service.
Food was fantastic and so were the people working there. Amazing experience, even during a pandemic. Would give 6 starts if possible.
Amazing service, incredible food.
The best!!!! Thank god you guys are open now and hopefully surviving through the pandemic. It was my first time and it definitely lives up to the hype. You can tell the entire staff is just happy to be back and we received excellent service. We will keep supporting! Thanks again!
Our favorite steakhouse in San Diego. First time back since the initial shutdown a year ago. Just as good as we remember it. Get the bread pudding for dessert- you won’t regret it.
We really enjoyed our time at Cowboy Star in San Diego, CA. Our meal was impeccable, the service was excellent and the drinks were great!!! We plan to go back as often as we can. Thanks for such a great experience!
Cowboy star is the best of the best. Service is always excellent and the food AMAZING. I’ll be sad when we leave San Diego!!!
We had a great experience. We started with the Duke, a cocktail I highly recommend. Josh M. greeted us with a smile and was happy to serve us! We had appetizers, T-bone, Rib eye steak and a bottle of Dehlinger Pinot Noir. Overall I highly recommend Cowboy Star!
Never disappointed. Best steakhouse in SD.
By far the best steak, and old fashions in town!!!
