    Unbelievable food and elegant service. Noelle gave great 5 star attention and service. The tuna Tartare was amazing and so fresh. My husband and I shared a chopped salad which was more than shareable. My husband got the American Spinellis. It was cooked to perfection (med rare plus) and he said it was perfectly seasoned. I had the filet mignon which was super tender and delicious. We finished up with the cinnamon roll crème brûlée which was a lot. Very sweet and not my favorite crème brûlée. I should have stuck with the OG. Overall, one of the best meals I’ve had in a while.

    We have been to Cowford several times and always had great service however this visit was not the case😕 We were celebrating my husband’s birthday and we expected more attention to detail. Our server’s name was Donny and he was inattentive for a lack of a better word. My husband’s cocktail stayed water down and Donny never asked if he wanted a fresh drink. The steak sauce arrived 10 minutes after we were already eating our meal. When we asked to go to the roof top for birthday desert he acted like it was an imposition and by that time my husband was over it and we just ate desert at our table. We weren’t offered a refill on our coffee. Just no attention to detail at all. Very disappointing to spend that much money and have subpar service.

    I try to eat out a lot and have been to many “fine dining” venues. This has been around the world. Well this has been the best thus far! The care of every staff member was apparent and the quality was shown through every last detail. Asking whether we prefer a black or white table cloth to protect our clothes, hot towels after the appetizer, every dish being brought out by a individual staff member in a sort of parade, it was exquisite. The food was excellent as well, but when paired with the little touches it made the night so memorable. Loved that there was complimentary valet. Will definitely return. I never even saw the rooftop bar, but was far impressed from the dining room alone. I also liked that our table was along the balcony of the second story so that we could look down onto the first floor and people watch. We usually take a hour or so for dinner, but we were having such a great time that we stayed 3 hours. Also, get the cinnamon roll brûlée!

    Tonight my sisters/family celebrated my birthday early at Cowford Chophouse and I must say that they did not disappoint.Alicia was our waitress and she was excellent. We ordered the Cowford Rocks, Bone Marrow and Duck Fat Cornbread for appetizers. For dinner I had the whole lobster stuffed with crab, my sisters had steak, Chilean Seabass and Wood fired chicken. Everyone was completely satisfied with everything. Pistachio Baked Alaska all around for dessert ❤️👏🏾

    I like the free valet that is offered. Checking in for reservation was a breeze and hostess acknowledged and greet us a Happy Anniversary since I’ve added a note beforehand for our reservation. Dining experience was amazing. Our server was friendly, professional, attentive as well as the rest of the staff. Great variety of drinks/alcohol and liked the kids menu proportions. Apps, dinner, and dessert is flavorful. Well worth the experience and I would highly recommend over and over again!

    Gosh the food was sooooo good. I got a strawberry basil lemonade cocktail which was delightful. My husband got something called like a Florida old fashioned which he enjoyed. They have a great bread service, which included like 4 different varieties and each tasted lovely with their compound butter. I think it had chives and garlic in it, yum. Our appetizer was my second favorite part of the meal, but would have been first had we not gotten the A-5 wagyu steak for dinner. Like I would literally go to this restaurant just for the appetizer, it was that good. So what it is is a duck fat cornbread topped with lobster and crab meat. It had some sort of drizzle and like a savory whipped cream or something on the plate. Just holy cow, it was amazing. Everything about it was perfection. All the flavors harmonized so well together. So now the entree, because this was the best damn steak I've ever had, an authentic A-5 Japanese wagyu steak. It was prepared by the chef himself. We got them medium rare as that was the suggested temperature. It was plated with a veal demi glace, mushrooms, pearl onions and whipped truffle butter potato rolls. It was perfection. The steak was so tender it was like cutting through softened butter. We got truffle butter on the side to go with the steak but I rarely used it for that. I wanted to get each bite of that steak the way it was intended. I ended up using the butter mostly for my side dish which was their seasonal vegetable. Which was roasted fingerling potatoes, broccoli rabe and bacon with an aioli drizzled on top. I would add the butter to the potatoes and it was soooo good. My husband got the risotto which was also fabulous and a great side for our meal. Ok so the one exception to this being prefect was dessert. It was more of a cake then actual tiramisu. There was a slightly odd tangy layer and I didn't taste much espresso. It was way too dense and rich. If I would have seen cake in the title that would have helped.

    Was expecting a quieter and more intimate experience. Just a big open room. Their website said there was a dress code. I guess tee shirts and shorts are within the code. Steak (filet) was good but sides were not that great. Nice wine list. Generally, very good wait service, but upstairs bar was not available until seated. Arrived about 15 minutes before reservation and had to sit around for 20 minutes before being seated with drinks not possible...

    This place is incredible. Every detail is perfect, the service is amazing, the food is incredible, it's all just perfect. We were so impressed at the attention to detail and care from the time you walk in through when you leave. We've gone before shows and the speed to get us out on time was noted, or for my birthday where we're there to spend quality time and both expectations were exceeded. Incredible!

    Very disappointed with the food service was okay until we had an issue. I expected this was going to be expensive, but the taste of the food didn’t one close to the cost. Flavor of my husbands salad was just blah, steak was nothing to write home about. The Au Pouivre sauce wasn’t that great. My filet was good. The spinach and kale had no flavor mainly Kale and such large leaves just wasn’t appetizing. Potato Au Graten was okay. Took forever for desert. My husband got their famous cinnamon bun brûlée don’t know what happened to the Brûlée it just wasn’t there. I had the Key lime tart. Very very tart, key lime is suppose to be yellow this was bright green, so you know it was a mix. Then to top it off, they lost our credit card. First the waitress said she brought it back and said it fell on the floor looked under our table and table next to us. She then went to look for it came back couldn’t find it and proceeded to wait on other tables. This should have been her priority we are your customers and you lost our card! Then said a server found it and would bring to us shortly. Getting madder by the moment. Finally we did get it and wanted to speak with the manager. He came to our table told us a different story. Very upsetting. This was suppose to be a nice Anniversary dinner! Will we go back No. Will we let other people know YES
