Cowboy Ciao opened February 12, 1997, and it was well into 1998 before information operators stopped telling callers we didn’t exist because they tried Chow instead of Ciao. Too clever for our own good? Maybe clever isn’t the best choice of word (stubborn is probably a better fit), but surely we’ve retained a sense of irreverence this whole time.

Cowboy Ciao began as a neighborhood joint featuring wine-friendly fare focused on Italy, Mexico and the American Southwest and an eclectic wine list of 88 selections. It has evolved into a ‘Big City’ restaurant featuring a Modern American menu with Southwest accents and Global influences, sporting an internationally-acclaimed wine list hovering around 1800 selections.

Through it all, our goal has remained simple: thrill each guest every visit with a memorable entertainment experience.


order Baroque décor, sweeping horseshoe bar surrounding a wide-open kitchen, multiple spaces for private and semi-private group dining (ranging from 10 guests to a full buyout of 200), the unique space that is Cowboy Ciao brims with energy, hustle, bustle, and several other terms that basically signify ‘have a good time’.
