Lulu was our server and she was an absolute doll! The burger was amazing. Such a great flavor and the brioche roll was melt in you mouth good.

I went to the Blue Cow for dinner with my wife and two kids (9 and 11). I only had a vegetable salad which was quite tasty. The kids both had pasta bolognaise which they enjoyed - I tried a bit of it as well and the pasta was home made and excellent. My wife's tuna tartare was also pronounced... More

After reading the reviews I was really excited about eating here. I'm not sure who they got to write those reviews but the food really bad. It was like a cross between fast food and Costco quality food. The service was average. We ate inside and it was very difficult to hear each speak because of the acoustics.

Good, over-stuffed burgers -- the fries are above average. Candied jalpeños were a treat. If you eat indoors, watch your conversation as the acoustics let folks on the opposite side of the room eavesdrop as if they were at your table.

After reading the reviews I was looking forward to this. Worst food and by far the worst service I have ever received. There were free tables outside and no one sat inside but it was dilemma for the hostess where we could sit. This should have been a warning bell! It took over 10minutes for someone to come to us,...

We were a large party, including teenagers, and went for dinner after attending an event at the Disney Concert Hall. Most of us had burgers, all very good and substantial. Their vodka Margaritas laced with chilli were fantastic and worth trying. The service was slow and not great but it didn't deter from our overall enjoyment. Another aspect really worth... More

Our bartender suggested the pork belly coming from the south I figured no one can do pork like Southern BBQ, boy was I wrong! Absolutely delicious and a great serving of it. I am not into the IPA beer or whatever they call it but they offered it for free so I drank it, I still like my regular beer!... More

As we had tickets to see a play at the Mark Taper, we wanted to have a casual meal not far from the Music Center. We were pleasantly surprised at this nice casual restaurant-The Kale Ceasar was fresh and delicious (although we told the manager it could use some more goodies like the figs, cheese etc. besides the generous portion...
