Cowgirl is a fantastic restaurant with great service and food. There staff is super quick and attentive. The food comes out super quick and is always tasty and full of flavor. Cowgirl has a kids menu which is great. It's packed with grilled cheeses and corndogs. My kids go crazy over them. It is a total family restaurant. Come to... More

The chicken fried chicken and the burrito we had were very good, as were the accompanying veggies. The location in the Village and the atmosphere are a plus.

Staff was cool. Loved the names of the drinks. Loved the fact we were able to sit outside and eat. And Corndogs on the menu. Cowgirl had me right there.

We had lunch here, salads and coffee. Managed to get a table outside but in the shade on a perfect NY day. Had Frozen strawberry margueritas. I thought it tasted great but my wife wanted some more strawberry taste. No problem, the bartender fixed in a minute. Very nice guacamole to start with. Salads were plentiful and very very good....

After walking along the Hudson from Battery Park to Cowgirl the Margaritas tasted really good. Their other food is also pretty good. We especially like their nachos, salsa and guacamole. We were there twice on this trip and hope to be back next time we're in town.

Can't go wrong with the myriad of choices on the menu- you can cater to a multitude of tastes! Especially the younger set. But they do make a good margarita as well! The servers are all friendly and very accomodating. There areplacemats with stuff to keep everyone busy. It is lefectly fine for adukts alone as well!

The food was amazing. The iced drinks were out of this world. Good menu for vegetarians but also for meat lovers. The choice is for everyone. The portions were huge.

Staying in West Village

Neighborhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighborhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
