As a native of Arizona, living in the south now, I always love to re-visit Cowboy Ciao. The atmosphere is unique, but comfortable. The selection of wine is extensive, but he Copped Salad is the best salad I have ever had! Just can't reproduce it anywhere. A real Arizona land mark in my mind. And the chocolate mousse with the...

We came here recently for lunch and were excited about the food based on the Uber driver recommendation and the pictures we saw online. The food was definitely solid and we had a good meal but we were not blow away by any of the dishes. Everything was good and there was a nice mix of options on the menu.

We had a nice meal here - the small plate appetizers were excellent. The wine and beer list were good and it had a nice atmosphere. It's a good way to end a hectic day with a casual meal in a nice neighborhood. If your in the area I'd try it out! The Four Peas Ale is Excellent!

The menu was very limited and the food had not flavor. We went because it had high ratings, but we were very disappointed!

My two girl friends and I went here for dinner the other week during Waste Management Open! Loved the food and service! The menu has fun quotes from people that have previously eaten in the restaurant. Scallops were great!

The food was amazing. This was the best fillet I've ever had! Service was excellent. The place gets very loud as it fills up at dinner time. Book an early reservation time.

After seeing the menu I was beyond excited about dining here. That excitement went away very quickly. I was in the mood for some wine and asked to see the wine list. What I was presented was a binder of about 60 pages of wine. How do they arrange this list you ask? By PRICE! This is one of the... More

We did not have reservations and were lucky to grab the last two seats at the bar. The service was excellent; how the bartenders were able to serve the entire restaurant and wait on all of us at the bar was amazing. One of the benefits of sitting where we did at the bar was a straight line of sight... More

Nice restaurant. Good service. Very limited menu. My wife and I drove 30 minutes as a recommendation from someone we asked. Our mistake was not checking out the menu in advance. Very limited menu and very expensive. People were nice. Our server was very pushy, made us feel hurried to order. We finally decided on an appetite and left.

Ever find a place that brings you back because it is eclectic and interesting? This is the place. The food and wine list are tops. How about Mac and truffled cheese and a wine list with wines you never heard of. Lots of fun and exciting. Must go
