Awesome! Awesome! Awesome! I never thought I’d say it, but it was better than Ruth’s Chris. The steaks were out of this world. We were very impressed with the cocktails, cornbread appetizer and the fabulous service.

Half of our tables food was amazing and the other half subpar. Dirty plates sat on the table for at least15 minutes after we were finished. We waited a very long tone for drinks, multiple times. Our main server was great, but he didn’t seam to have the assistance he needed to provide the service expected at a high end establishment.

Wonderful service and delicious dinner! Only concern was that we couldn’t get a better time for dinner as if wasn’t available only to get to restaurant and find it completely empty.

We arrived early and enjoyed a few cocktails on the rooftop. The bartender was great managing the orders and still having a fun convo with us! His espresso martini version was so nice. Our table was in the first floor dining room. Such an incredible space. High ceilings. Beautiful restored old bank. Everything was great. Our server was polite and timely. We had the filet and the grouper. Both fantastic but the Austin Hope Granache stole the show! Great wine especially at its price. Next time in Jax we want to see the second floor dining area!

My sister and brother-in-law were in town from Iowa so we took them to Cowford because they are Midwestern farmers and they love a good steakhouse. Coincidentally, it was also my partner’s and my first time at Cowford, too. And we will be back, over and over again. Our experience was first-class the entire way. From the host stand to the back-waiters to the servers, everything was impeccable. Cowford is easily the classiest restaurant in Jax and we can’t wait to return.

We had appetizer, soup, main course, side vegetable and desert. All were excellent. Top 10 meals ever. Service while prompt was not well ordered. We received bread, appetizer and soup all at same time. We had been here previously and received a well ordered meal.

Another great dinner at Cowford. Wagyu steak/chicken/filet/porterhouse were all cooked perfect. Only suggestion would be to spread tables out more. We sat upstairs in a crowded area and downstairs didn't have many diners at all.

I did not care for the wood grilled lobster tail. The smokiness flavor was overwhelming and I could not eat it. I guess that will teach me to order seafood at a steakhouse. The other 3 people all liked their steaks.

Good food quality but extremely overpriced. The steaks were good really not outstanding to justify the exorbitant pricing. Ambience and view, esp from the second floor, were nice.

Ambiance is great. I find the food and service better at the more well known steakhouses in the area. Service just wasn't up to par for high end steak house. There shouldn't be empty drinks sitting on table with no one asking if you want another. When you order a bottle of wine the server should continue to pour the bottle during dinner not the patrons.

Everything was great, but our steaks were both a bit over cooked. Which we’ve come to expect from chophouse. I should’ve ordered it a level lower but don’t feel like I should have to guess.

The food was amazing.
My husband had the 12oz Filet Mignon which was cooked to perfection.
I had the Risotto and it was simply awesome.
The drinks were perfect, we had a dirty martini and old fashion .
It was great service from start to finish.

Cowford Chophouse is the gem of downtown Jacksonville. Excellent food. Incredible staff. Enjoy a drink on the rooftop before dinner and take in the sunset views of our beautiful city. The bacon appetizer is one of my favorites. It’s really good bacon y’all, you can’t go wrong. The seafood tower is an experience of its own - must try. For soups and salads, I love the wedge salad and French onion soup. My favorite Cowford Cut is the American Wagyu Spinalis with the Point Reyes Blue Cheese Butter Crown. Folks, this is one of the best steaks I’ve ever had. Anywhere. As far as sides, literally all of them are delicious. Seriously, there’s not one that I wouldn’t recommend. The Chocolate Espresso Martini is a perfect way to end the meal. If you have a sweet tooth, try the cheesecake or the cinnamon roll brûlée.

As stated on my previous review, this place is a Jacksonville treasure! The food.... 11 out of 10.
May be a little pricey for a weekly outing, but definitely a great place to enjoy your immediate circle of trust over cocktails and a superb dinner! My wife and I love this place!
