I was extremely tired when I visited this restaurant, so tired that I could barely order my own food, but even so, I can remember how good the burger I ordered there was. It was delectable. I remember enjoying the fries too. However, it was a very expensive restaurant, and I was glad I wasn't the one paying the bill.... More

In the city for Thanksgiving is always a bit of a challenge to decide on what to do for meals. This year we decided on Cowgirl and were not disappointed. Food was good and plentiful and service fantastic. Desert with the apple crumble and brownie sundae were favorites. We would love to try this during normal meals. Worth a try

Went 4 times for dinner on this trip to NY. The food is good, the atmosphere is great, and when it's quiet you can chat with the staff who are a delight. And if you end up in conversation with other diners we'll..... we still have the plastic dinosaur & donkey from a visit 4 years ago. It's good value... More

Showed up on a Friday night around 8 with four kids and three adults. Place was packed withy many waiting, told us it would be thirty minutes but got us a table in 10. Food was good, nothing amazing, very filling. Good cocktails but expensive. Enjoyed the atmosphere.

We found the cowgirl while wandering around West Village. The burgers where ok, but not the best I've ever eaten.

Decent casual venue, service is pleasant. No reservations needed. If you want a big helping of comfort food, this is it. Not a healthy venue but you can find a couple of somewhat healthy items on the menu. Kitschy decor. Not expensive. Not memorable.

Loved this place and plan to go back again while here in NYC. Fun western decor and really good fun. They have interesting drinks too. Try the "baked potato" ice cream dessert.

My friend and I visited Cowgirl for brunch on a Saturday. The staff were really friendly and managed to fit us in straight away even though it was busy. The frozen margaritas are awesome and the food was pretty good too. It's also really reasonably priced. I loved the western decor and theme and would definitely go back.

Great place for families as well as folks who enjoy a nice cocktail. One of the best frozen margaritas ever! Portions of food and drink (served in pint mason jars!) are ample! The staff is friendly and the service is great. Everything I've tried there is yummy. Awesome place to hang out and have that cozy down-home feeling!

Of all the restaurants in the area, we chose Cowgirl, which was good for us. Upon entering the decor is western with photographs throughout. The staff was friendly, and we were taken to our table. The sitting room at the table is tight especially for larger and or taller people. The brisket burger was very good, and the platter came... More

Staying in West Village

Neighbourhood 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 neighbourhood 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.
