It is what you would expect from an establishment that has been in old town scottsdale for quite some time. i ordered the filet and it was melt in the mouth, great flavor and cooked perfect.

I had the Stetson chopped salad and I can die now. Seriously I'm a meat and fish tacos kinda guy. How can a "salad" be this good?

Had a group of 12 for a business dinner here and loved the place. Appetizers of shrimp with corn and hominy was delicious. The brisket appetizer was also wonderful. I had the Elk loin for dinner and really enjoyed it. A very lean tasty meat. Others had fish, filets, and other dishes and equally enjoyed them. This is a very... More

In the middle of a bustling night life area on a Monday night, and after a shift in body schedule from an east coast flight, we came on a recommendation for drinks and apps. After perusing the menu, we opted for apps and dessert for our calories, although the wine list was extensive. My wife had the "Stetson Chopped", which... More

Located in the 5th Ave. district of Scottsdale, Cowboy Ciao is one of the city's best destination eateries. Eclectic southwestern-inspired fare, Wine Spectator recognized wine list and knowledgeable wait staff make every visit a treat. Worthy of your consideration.

Amazing, unpretentious food is the hallmark of this restaurant. Everything is fresh and delicious! Nice fusion of excellent, local-when-possible ingredients with Southwest flair. This is a Scottsdale ""don't miss" restaurant.

$40 for a dry stuffed pork chop? Come on. I suppose I shouldn't be surprised - it is downtown Scottsdale after all, where people seem to have more money than sense, but I was very disappointed after hearing great things about this place. My buddy had the "Pastrami Short Rib" or something like that (again about $40) and although the... More

We went here on a friends' recommendation. It is in a beautiful and walkable area of Scottsdale. We had a reservation and were seated at a table at the window so we were able to people-watch and just enjoy the view of the street and all the fancy cars going by. Our server was very good and recommended the Stetson... More
