    This was hands down one of the best meals I have ever eaten in my life. I have been around the world many times and this place is the real deal. Complex flavors that are not just your run-of-the-mill "Anniversary Steak House." I will be going back so soon and so often they will get sick of seeing me:)

    Everything from check in to going to our table to being treated like royalty to the ambience to the appetizers and sides was absolutely phenomenal. We couldnt wait for our steak. Then, we were fairly disappointed with the steak. We asked for medium rare & it was more rare than medium rare. The steak flavor was pretty good, but it wasn’t very tender. We got ribeyes, so I expected more out of them. Unfortunately, Ruth’s Chris has the best steak and it just wasn’t anywhere near as good as Ruth’s Chris steaks.

    We felt rushed; we couldn’t really relax and enjoy getting settled in. Service was ok, server was especially fast talking. Was out of the seafood I wanedt; really felt like it was a preparation issue not inventory. Overall it was just ok

    One of the best dining experiences I've had in Jacksonville. The space is beautiful. The music was just loud enough for me to notice when there was a recognizable tune on. The service was amazing! My partner and I were celebrating our anniversary and were served complimentary glasses of bubbles. Our server explained the many thoroughly and made EVERYTHING sound good. The food was absolutely incredible. My partner is pescatarian and there were plenty of options for them to choose from. We started off with a dozen oysters. The pink peppercorn mignonette was so unique and delicious! For our mains, my partner had the Chilean sea bass, and I had the steak fries. Both incredible! So much richness, we could barely finish! (I definitely ended up taking half my steak home). We finished off with some coffees, but we were eyeing the Baked Alaska and Cinnamon Roll for next time. Truly a wonderful experience. I'll be back often!

    Had to practically beg the ‘gatekeeper’ to allow me to walk to the bar and buy a drink while we waited for our reservation. The chopped salad is not, in fact, chopped. It’s a salad with large pieces of greens which are impossible to fit into your mouth without cutting it all up yourself. Salmon arrived Oscar style which was cold and had a very fishy tasting crab meat. This was our 3rd visit. Cannot deal with the pretentiousness again. Won’t be returning. Plenty of other nice steak houses in town where the staff doesn’t act like you’re lucky they allow you to dine there.

    Parking is a breeze with the valet, the rooftop experience was worth your time whether you are dining there or just going for a drink or two, the food was excellent and as described but the service is outstanding. The waitstaff is to be commended on their attention to detail. Our server was able to give us a history of downtown, the restaurant building prior to current ownership and suggest entertaining things for us. It was a dual birthday celebration well spent!

    This was our third visit in a little over a year, and we have been consistently wowed. From appetizers and salads to desserts, the food is exceptional. The parade of servers delivering a course to a single table continues to amuse and delight. It's a little pricey for us to make a habit of it, but it is undoubtedly our go-to spot for special occasions.

    A friend came up from Tampa and wanted a great steak, and Cowford Chop House delivered! Jason was our server and he provided excellent service and made it seem like we had his undivided attention, even though I’m sure he was providing the same great service to several tables. Food was amazing, we both started with Wedge salads, which were perfect, followed by large perfectly grilled steaks and a side of very tasty scalloped potatoes. I definitely recommend Cowford Chop House for special occasions or any reason!
