We took my daughter there for her birthday dinner, and I don't even know where to start with the complaints. The waitress was good about the drinks, but it went way downhill from there. If they had been busy, it would have been easier to give the place a pass on the service, but they weren't. We were sitting with 2 or 3 other tables around us, and by the end of the night we all complaining about the place. My daughter is a vegetarian so she ordered a dish with tofu(after waiting at least 30 minutes to take our order). After another 15 or 20 minutes, they came to tell her they were out of tofu(tofu!!!!), so she had to take it that way and that there the flavor of the dish way off. We asked for bread several times, don't think we ever got it. All around terrible way to celebrate a birthday!. We probably will never go back.😱

If we had not eaten at this restaurant before it would be our last time. We sat down and got drinks quickly. My wife got the wrong wine but let it go The waitress said she would be bring bread to the table. Three times in the next 45 minutes she came back to say she was sorry for the wait for the bread. She said other waitress's were stealing her order. This was confirmed when the table next to use ask for a refill of bread and got it from the waitress who told them she had stolen the order from another waitress. The French Onion soup came and was sub-par from what we had gotten in the past. The rest of the meal was very good. When we and the other couple paid by credit card the bills came back with the cards switched and the wrong bill charged. There appeared to be no manager on the floor with the waitress's on their own with customers. Because of good service and good food in the past we will give the Blue Cow one more chance.
