The Gambling Cowboy Chophouse and Saloon
Wife found a long hair, attached to her garlic bread. Showed our waitress. Her reply was "no one in the kitchen has long hair". It sounded as though she doubted what my wife showed her. The waitress response was insulting and embarrassing to my wife. I dont believe the incident was reported to a manager. No one else spoke with us about the incident. Thats not the kind of hygiene incident that should be dismissed. Not the response i expected from a high end restaurant in temecula. Disappointing. Maybe we'll hear from you. On the way out, my wife slipped and fell on the wood floor. Food/ambience was great, but patron care was lacking.
I always get the Bill’s Cut Filet....it was cooked perfectly as usual!!!! ....and Shelley, our server, was outstanding!
Excellent food and service! Nice place to celebrate a special occasion.
Steaks were overdone...twice..
Going away dinner for a friend
Awesome steak and sides. Only downside was a kid playing a game on a cellphone at full volume. Not necessarily the restaurant’s fault...what’s wrong with people??
Took my steady date for a romantic evening. We chose to sit outside and the table was perfect. The appetizer started us off (calamari) and was very tasty. My date had a filet and I had the country fried steak. Both were made to perfection. Our server was very attentive and had a great personality and always a smile. After dinner we went over to the bar and listened to music. 2 guys singing songs from the 60's and 70's. Perfect way to end a great date nite.
Yes, will return. Only negative is the cost of valet parking. I realize parking is at a premium in Old Town Temecula, especially on a Saturday nite. But price seemed excessive. My guess is the valet parking is handled by an independent company, not by the restaurant.
Thank you for making our evening special.
Always great food and service. No disappointments here!
The service was spectacular! The steak wasn't cooked quite long enough and the manager totally took care of the situation. The manager and server checked on us to be sure we were happy. Such great customer service!
Great food and environment. Food was excellent as always and no complaints of staff.
I LOVED this restaurant. The service, drinks, and food was fantastic. They even included a free dessert for my birthday!
My husband and I decided to celebrate our 36th wedding anniversary at The Gambling Cowboy as we have in the past and it did not disappoint.
I had the filet and my husband had the bone-in ribeye and both were delicious. We also were treated to a decadent mousse for dessert.
I had a glass of wine and would like to say that I appreciate the generous wine pour!
The menu pricing is on the higher end, but the food, ambiance, and service are fantastic and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend The Gambling Cowboy.
Had reservations and it was busy, but we were seated quickly. Drinks and appetizer came out fast. Meat was cooked correctly. Sides and dessert were both very good, as was our server. Looking forward to returning when we are in the area again.
Sat outside, great time. They had an issue with our order but made it right.
Went for birthday dinner...it was delicious!
I highly recommended this restaurant. The food is fabulous and I love the wine selection from the local wineries.
This is our faborite steakhouse in temecula. Food and drinks are always excellent and we love no.corkage fee on local wines. Def be back here soon
We frequently eat here. Our favorite place by far. But tonight very disappointed. Waitress was horrible in every way. Felt rushed felt unvalued. Rushed to order and the. Waited forever to get s check. Completely unacceptable. Will have to think twice before I go back.
Bone in ribeye
Enjoyed a fantastic Mother's day brunch with my wife and daughter! Service on par as always and food selection for the brunch buffet was insane...our mouths watered and eyeballs about fell out from the many choices. Everything was delicious, from the appetizers, prime rib, ham, eggs benedect and too many sides to cover, not to mention the omelettes to order... perfection! Thanks for another outstanding meal! We will be back again!
We Love the Gambling Cowboy! Decor is great, all of the staff is super friendly and the food is amazing!
Excellent way to spent quality time with your best friends. The food and service were excellent and we will definitely be back!
Seated by the patio door in the back. With all of the people coming in and out you think our service would have been a bit better... The food was excellent!
We had an early reservation and were seated on the patio overlooking downtown. The short rib dinner, the ambiance, and the service all made for a wonderful night out. This was our second visit to Gambling Cowboy and next time we will be coming with friends.
Great casual steakhouse experience. Terrific service and high quality food. Definitely try the marrow bones.
This is my favorite restaurant in town. Always the best
It was a great place! Outstanding food and not too pricey for a steakhouse. The ambiance was fun and inviting. Our waitress was fantastic. You should definitely check it out!
Best chophouse that we have experienced. After dinner we sat at the bar for an after dinner drink but the bartenders ignored us for about 5 minutes.
Three bartenders on duty that evening and not very attentive to us. The girls were to busy talking their regular customers.
Great steak house!!!!
Outstanding service from Shelly. Order the Ribeye - it's cooked to perfection!
Steaks were great. Too noisy.
Came for our 18 year Anniversary on Sunday. We ordered the same steaks this time as last time. Steaks seemed to be a bit smaller than usual. There was a private party of 30 in the bar across the hall. Not sure if all the good cuts went to them or they were the priority of the night. Either way steaks were small for 16 oz and 50 dollars. Husband ordered blackend steak which came out very bland and did not have nearly as much flavor as my Traditional steak did. The waitress felt bad that it took an hour for our food to come out and that his steak didnt have the quality it should. So, she gave us a cowboy chocolate cake slice to make it a little better. It was appreciated. Love the Gambling Cowboy but this is the second time we have come out of maybe 5 times and the steaks weren't up to the quality it should be for 50 dollars. Other time his steak came out cold in the inside and still mooing! Ordered med/ rare. Didn't expect an uncooked cold steak to come out. Seemed to be only seared and forgot to finish cooking it.
Other three times or so were pleasant with good quality and acceptable service time. Food is great if it comes out with the right temp on steak and 16 oz size that is ordered. Aware that a steak cooks down a bit depending on doneness. They shouldn't come out looking like a 8 -10 oz steak after cooked.
My salmon spicy chophouse salad was absolutely delicious and my guest enjoyed their food as well.
It’s always a wonderful experience with delicious food
Overall, a great experience. Food was good and service was spot on. The restaurant is in need of repair. Booths look run down.
Celebrating my husband's birthday. Pleasant staff. I liked the boneless short ribs more than my husband. Taste was good but think he was expecting something more like their sticky sauce ribs. We'd go again.
Great food... reservations still had to wait a bit.... but the food is always excellent as well as the drinks
It was delicious and a bountiful amount of food. The bread was deliciously warm. We will be back again.
Great place for very good food. Great appetizers. Looking forward to our next visit. One of the best steaks I have ever had and I have had steak all over the world.
