It’s been three years since we went during their opening week. You expect some hiccups then. 3 years later service in the rooftop bar was slow. Food was very good. Exceptional French onion soup.

This was my boyfriend and I first time visiting this place and we loved everything about it. The service was beyond excellent and the food was tasty. One of the best steaks I’ve ever eaten. I will definitely be returning.

We arrived 1 hour before our reservation to be able to sit at the roof top bar and enjoy the sunset before dinner. The roof top bar was closed for a function which was extremely disappointing. When I told the hostess, we did t receive an apology or anything. We asked if we could sit at the bar on the ground floor and have a few drinks and we were told no. I feel if a major feature is closed, we should be notified. I would have switched my reservation to a different night. We even got babysitters to make a night of it, bitterly disappointed

The entrance, hostess, upstairs dining area, and ambiance were fantastic.
Our waiter was a nice young man but slow with the drinks, brought the wrong drink for my friend and took 10 minutes to bring the correct one.
My wife waited at least 15 minutes in between her glasses of wine. When our food came, out steaks were barely lukewarm, almost cold. They were cooked perfectly but had clearly been sitting for quite some time. For dessert I had the cinnamon bun brûlée which was so dry it was almost inedible, and my wife ordered the baked Alaska which she didn’t like at all. When she told the waiter he said ok and took it. He did not apologize, ask her if she would like anything else, and we were billed for it. (The apology I would feel was warranted as he recommended the dessert to her).
I am not one to complain but felt this was enough that needed to be shared. It’s a shame because the atmosphere was great but I doubt we will be back. I don’t mind spending money on good food, but for the amount I spent I would at least expect my steak to be hot and dessert to taste decent.

Food was ok but not as exceptional as I was anticipating. Appetizers were amazing but the steak (bone in ribeye) was not as tasty as I was hoping it would be. I would go back for the drinks and the apps. Great atmosphere.

We came for my birthday. Our waiter was perfect, he made suggestions, and was always their when we needed something. The food was delicious. Roasted seafood tower was perfect. We had two Bone In New York’s and they were cooked perfectly and quite tasty.
We will be back!
Thanks for a great Birthday

Cowford Chophouse is everything you’d expect from a high-end steakhouse. Impeccable on every level! I took my husband and my SIL for their birthdays this past Friday, and we all had an outstanding experience. Not only was the food, presentation and ambience exceptional, but our waiter, Billy, was by far the cherry on top. He was fast, efficient, jovial, knowledgeable and appropriately professional. I can’t say enough about how happy I am with my overall evening!

Food was way overpriced. The server (I think Patty) Was great. Was our first time there. Will not return whenever I’m in Jacksonville.
Food was ok, but too pricey for the quality.

Filet was cooked wrong and lobster tail was mushy. Should of complained but it was my sons 40th Birthday and I did not want to ruin the mood or want anyone else to stop eating while I was getting a replacement meal.

Reservation at 7, on a Tuesday. Seated at bottom floor at table with booth seating on one side and chair on other side, ask for another table and was taken up to roof top where it was open seating, seat yourself, not exactly what we had in mind! Was first time there, if we where to go back I would ask for second floor when making reservations as it looked to be white table dinning.

We were looking forward to a solid steakhouse meal. The prices, which are not available through open tables site, were high but not completely outrageous. Overall I'd say the food was good, not great. For the price the food should have and could have been better. Both steaks ordered were under cooked and neither steak was memorable especially considering the $55 price tag. Sides and bread all good. Flourless chocolate cake was overly dense. $38 for 3 pieces of king crab was the most outrageous part of the meal. Delicious but way too expensive for an app.
