Love the Stetson Chopped Salad

We go to Cowboy Ciao every time we get to Scottsdale. The food is consistently good and the service at the bar is great. We really enjoy the Stetson chopped salad and also the scallop appetizer. The mushrooms are also a favorite.

The food and drinks were amazing. I sat at the bar as I was dining by myself. From there you have a view of the kitchen and can watch the food being prepared. I had the swordfish which was cooked perfectly. The bartender was very attentive and friendly. She hand crafted a couple excellent cocktails for me. I had an... More

Every time I go to Scottsdale this is the one place I insist on going. The food is amazing and I have never had a bad meal there. I always order the famous Stetson Chopped Salad. I know, it's only a salad but trust me you will be happy you ordered this. EXCELLENT and they will give you the recipe... More

My wife and I dined here and with the exception of the Cowboy Ciao Salad (which is very good), the food is just average. The wine list is large but could be better organized. The unfortunate part of our experience was the manager. He was quite full of himself and when I asked to speak to a manager he stated,... More

The food and service here were both excellent. The menu is smaller but everything our party of 5 had was perfect.

We all ordered the same salad- coincidentally- although the drinks varied..Service was fast and friendly and atmosphere was lively but quiet enough to hear our conversations without yelling.. Great location- perfect place for dinner as well.

They did a great job handling our party of 16 on Friday night. Apps and drinks came quickly (and often), meals were excellent - the Cowboy chop salad is a meal on its own. Location is great for a large group - walk to several bars or a short cab / golfcart to the clubs.

We have dined at this restaurant many times. Last night was a disappointment. Service was extremely slow and the food was not that great. When Cowboy Ciao first opened, and for the first couple years, a great experience was guaranteed. Seems they have lost attention to detail and are relying on prior greatness. When we arrived the restaurant was not... More

Thank you, Jeremy, for making our client dinner awesome! His recommendations were on point, pacing of the meal was perfect, and even when we had a rowdy member he stayed cool, calm, and collected. Loved the wine that was recommended for us (although navigating that list is near impossible) and the food choices were perfect. We had a wide range... More

The Chopped Stetson salad is amazing! I had it both nights and am craving one now! First night I went with the NY Strip and it was an amazing piece of beef and HUGE! Perfectly cooked and seasoned, I was fully satisfied. Next night really wanted the steak but tried the pastrami style short-ribs. I love short-ribs and these were... More
