    The best part of the meal was the old fashion. Med rare steak came out rare and almost cold No flavor. Risotto was like a salad with a bunch of boojie crap in it. For $250, we (2) should have went to Ruth Chris or capital grill. We won’t return.

    Took my wife here for our 33rd wedding anniversary. Totally recommend getting a reservation and getting there 45-60 minutes in advance to hang out at the rooftop bar. Happy hour drinks were amazing and the salmon dip was great. The dinner menu is great as well. The seasonings the Cowford chefs use are very unique amd flavorful. Highly recommend this unique star in downtown Jax!

    We arrived a little early to enjoy cocktails on the rooftop, beverage selection was really good, House wine as a nice surprise. Just before our reservation time, one of the hostesses came and got us for dinner. We were seated in the second floor dining room, table for four by the windows. Jenni was our primary server, excellent knowledge of the wine selections as well as menu items. Her assistants were discrete but efficient, clearing dishes, glasses and cleaning crumbs. Loved the simultaneous placement of everything from appetizers, entrees and desserts - food was excellent, wonderful presentations and cooked exactly as ordered. Real attention to detail. Definitely not your everyday dining, but most definitely a wonderful place for special occasion celebrations.

    Great food and service. Noise level was good. Only issue is when ordering whiskey they do not bring the bottle to the table to pour your drink in front of you. I am not from the area so maybe this is custom in this area but the good restaurants near me show you the bottle. You know you get what you paid for when the bottle comes to the table.

    The food was excellent. The best Caesar salad I've ever had. The lamb chops cooked perfectly and the mint sauce was wonderful. Great service from Jason. Only disappointment was that we could not sit on the roof. It was booked for a private party. Will have to go back.

    The service was not great, the food was not good for the price. One steak had to be sent back and they took the whole plate with the sides and didn’t return any sides. It took so long that the valet left. Our first trip to Cowford did not live up to expectations and it would be difficult to spend the money to try it again.

    The steaks are excellent. The salad and baked potato were nothing special. There is an extensive wine and drinks list. Everything is very overpriced, so make sure you're prepared to spend $200+ for a couple.

    From the moment we walked in we realized we were going to have a wonderful dinner. We are visiting the area, in town to see Sting concert. It appeared we were the first table to sit for dinner service. The hostesses at the front were friendly and engaging. Our waitress Patricia, forgive me if that’s incorrect it is Patrice was Very lovely, efficient and knowledgeable. I’m in the restaurant business and Would love to have an entire staff with her demeanor. The food was absolutely fantastic, compliments to the chef! Unfortunately, the mistake we made as tourist, was stopping at another establishment for lunch early in the day regrettably so my husband and I did not leave enough room to really take in the delights and going to a concert after meant no leftovers for the hotel. That said we look forward to returning to Jacksonville specifically to have dinner at the Cowford. Thank you again for making my husband‘s birthday special evening.

    Didn’t quite meet my expectations. Not sure that I would dine there again. The food was pretty subpar and tasteless. The drinks were very good but the meal disappointed mightily. I got the impression that the restaurant was understaffed because the service was very slow. And that would not have been the deal breaker if the food had been good, great, or exceptional. I could see myself perhaps coming to the rooftop for a drink and an app but not dinner. This was a $500 disappointment.
