Was told this was an "amazing place" with "inventive food." No it is not. It is very average, pedestrian food, no finesse, presentation looks like a preschooler plated the dish. The wine list is good, but who wants to drink Pichon Lalande with boring, dreary food?

Fantastic venue for business or date night dinner. Very diverse menu and great wine list. And with location a great area for an after dinner walk.

The staff here is so nice!! It's nice to go to a place where the staff actually know the food and highly recommend certain dishes. And the food was delicious! The open face steak sandwich was so good! The chicken fried pork was good, it tasted like the description. I'd highly recommend this place!

We went there on a Friday evening and the main thing I remember is that it was so noisy that we could barely talk to each other and after an hour we basically give up talking: very disappointing. In addition we waited 1 hour to get our food: a pity because the food was actually excellent. Tables are too close... More

We have eaten here many times and loved it. The last experience was disappointing. The calamari salad was excellent, but the truffle mac and cheese, which we have enjoyed before was bland, with no trace of truffle. When we mentioned it to the very offhand server, she said she would bring it to the attention of the chef. That was... More

The Stetson chopped salad was amazing. We had it with smoked salmon and they even gave me a printed copy of the recipe when I inquired about one ingredient I could not place. We awe going back before we leave town to have it again and plan to end with their peach bread pudding

The appetizers are creative, the entrees tasty. Personally, the chopped salad is to die for. This is a great venue for a romantic meal or one with friends. Just reserve well in advance. Cowboy Ciao is an Old Town institution and gets very bust.
