The Cowford Chophouse
Book your next event with us
A Jacksonville original in historic building downtown. Fantastic roof top dining and bar in addition to two floors of outstanding steakhouse.
I've had many business meetings here and all have been great until tonight! This was a total embarrassment to me and the City of Jacksonville.
Had a great time
Nice place for entertaining out-of-town guests or date night
Wonderful atmosphere, outstanding cocktails, great service, average food at best. I found it to be very overpriced for what it was. The food was bland and warm. The only item served hot was the macaroni and cheese. I will return for cocktails only. I expected more from my dining experience, especially at the cost.
Excellent food..The steaks are very good..The resteraunt was clean,service was all you would expect,..All the food was very good. Everything we ordered was good from the appetizer to the main course and sides. Everything was good quality with great taste..It is pricey so expect to spend at least 150-250 for two for dinner for a complete meal..i would have light dinner music playing or live music especially on the third floor on the weekends but neither was happening..
Our server, Brittany, was excellent and the food was delicious--from the appetizers to the desserts. We were seated on the first floor and would have liked to sit higher to enjoy the view better. Will do so next time!
Wonderful food and excellent service.
Dinner and drinks prior to theater. Never been to Cowford before, but will definitely be back!
Never disappoints. The poke bowl for lunch was terrific.
Our waiter was great!!
As always Cowford Chophouse gives you the rare Jacksonville experience, world-class steakhouse environment, amazing service, exceptional food, and an amazing venue. Clearly the finest restaurant in Jacksonville, it is the place that you go to for exceptional events and when discriminating friends come in from out of town. It is our only truly world-class restaurant.
Delicious! Great happy hour too
Went to dinner at Cowford Chophouse after a play at the Times Union Center based on the recommendation of a co-worker. The ambience, service, and food were all TOP quality. The prices are a little high for an “every day meal experience” but this food is exceptional and something to be savored and celebrated! I will definitely plan on dining there again and will highly recommend to others! A++
50th birthday for a good friend. Had a nice bday card on the table. Wine recommendation was spot on. Meal was perfectly prepared.
Exceleent food, knowledgable and friendly staff
Visited Cowford for the second time in a month and although we love the food and location but the service proved terrible during both meals. Setting the tone and exemplary on both visits was our pre-dinner cocktail on the rooftop where after waiting 10 minutes for any sign of life from a waiter, we asked to order a drink and the waiter said, with a heavy sigh, “I guess I could take your order, this isn’t my table”... the rest of my son’s birthday dinner continued downhill from there.
The steaks were awesome. Love that they can cook with wood! The shecrab soup did not taste like shecrab. But, I’m from Charleston so my standards on the soup are pretty high. The red velvet dessert was great. Need a bigger wine selection. Love the roof top bar. We definitely needed one downtown.
This restaurant is very good. I had to send my filet mignon back because it was undercooked. They fixed it right away and gave us a complimentary dessert.
All of the food we ordered was cooked to perfection and tasted wonderful. We enjoyed the scenery, the service, the atmosphere, and food. A great place to go and was such a great experience. We will go again.
Excellent food and service every night we come here! Love this place and highly recommend!
The kale and spinach was not fully cooked, though to chew. The cinnomin roll desert was hard on one side. It was difficult to cut with a knife. Everything else was
Truly spectacular. The service is impeccable. The steaks are prepared in such a way that it would just be impossible to recreate at home. The rooftop bar is such a fun way to enjoy a drink and app before your meal. I really enjoyed my experience there.
Restaurant is beautiful and service was great. The food was not good. Spent $200 and was very disappointed.
The entire experience was on point! The service, the food and overall ambiance. When we arrived, the Maître d had seen we were 5 football player sized men. He changed the table that there were holding for us to be size appropriate. The Maître d took such precision in the placement of everything that he had impressed us all. The server was friendly and accommodating. She understood our personalities and couldn't have serviced us better. My clients left completely impressed.
Best Filet I gave ever had and the bourbon bacon jam was a delicious compliment. This was a birthday dinner and they treated me to any dessert on the menu! Very nice!!
Nice downtown restaurant in Jacksonville in an old restored bank building. Disappointed that the rooftop was not open for lunch, but everything else was first class.
Our waiter, Chris, is spectacular, A's was all the support staff.
Food was fantastic, as usual
It was a real treat for me and my wife.
Good and service were great everyone enjoyed their food.
Great grub, great drinks. Definitely will be back.
Enjoy the restaurant, drinks and food. Great place.
Good service and food but expect expensive prices.
Our experience has already been addressed with the manager, but we could not have been more disappointed in the entire experience from the moment we walked in the door except that it really is a beautiful establishment. Every aspect of the experience was beyond absurd that the only positive was that we didn’t have to pay a bill. That being said, we would have RATHER paid for an incredible experience with friends that we brought for the first time. From the rooftop bar, ordering drinks from the rudest server I’ve encounter in a very long time (drinks were all wrong, took over 20 minutes that we never received!). So we proceeded to our table for 5:15 reservation. We were asked what time we needed to leave for the show so the chef would know (which was 6:35) and our food did not arrive until 6:56pm. 2 of the four meals were cold and embarrassing but we ate it anyway (inhaled our meals to rush to a show were were now very late for). Had ordered another round of drinks at 6:40 since we were still waiting for our food- which never came 20 minutes later. The manager even personally came out (which was nice) and apologized but said he just “saw the kitchen plate the first plate” it was on its way out... 10+ minutes later still no meal had been received. We expect a great experience when your planning to pay this much money for a meal and experience, but the customer service should be outstanding- it was not. I’m not sure we will return. The only 1 Star was because we didn’t have to pay for the 2 rounds of drinks which were painful to even get. For what it’s worth...
The food was good but for the price, i expected more. They overbooked by a lot and our food took forever to come. The waitress was VERY nice, pleasant, and apologetic concerning the tardiness of our food arrival. Overall, i am glad i went but will not return for a special occasion.
My go to place for fine dining.
We have had several wonderful dining experiences at The Cowford Chophouse. On our most recent visit, we brought a couple for their first time. Our food was prepared perfectly; the service was impeccable, as always; even the weather cooperated! We will all be returning!
Robert did a very nice job , food was great and the atmosphere joyus on Christmas eve.
Nice ambiance, food was expensive, but good. Server was a bit arrogant, and did not seem happy when we chose selections other than his strong recommendations.
One of the most beautiful restaurants in Jacksonville. The food was outstanding but pricey. More of a destination or special occasion restaurant than an everyday place.
Amazing as always. Food was spectacular and Donnie our server was so professional as always.
