About
The Cowfish(R) is a one-of-a-kind dining experience, thriving on its ability to fuse two niche products seamlessly on the same menu. Fresh, innovative and delicious, the sushi segment of the menu is far beyond what you're accustomed to. All natural, creative and hearty, the burgers entice with fresh, never frozen, ingredients and bold flavors. Spiked hand-spun milkshakes, premium sakes, craft beers, wine and 10oz exotic martinis round out a huge bar menu that is sure to please. The Cowfish(R) aims to offer something for the entire family. Scrumptious appetizers for sharing, entree-sized salads, homemade desserts and a fun kid's menu. If you can't make up your mind, try a bento box to sample

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What can I say. Was looking forward to this for a family meal and was soooo disappointed. Took ages for the waiter to take our order for 4 then we waited over an hour and 10 minutes for the food to arrive. From there it...went downhill (as if it could anymore). We were neglected at the table. Wasn’t asked for more drinks, wasn’t asked for top ups, wasn’t asked how the food was until we finished. Draw the customers in then ignore them. When we asked for the check we waited almost as long again whilst other were being served. Food was ok, severely let down by appalling service. Wouldn’t go back and wouldn’t recommend.More

This place has an eclectic menu, but it worked for us. We really enjoyed the fried pickles appetizer, which were thinly sliced and not too sour.

We had a large group of eight. They take reservations. They were very accommodating. We ate outside in the covered area. Frankly, it's a bit cool inside but an entertaining interior. Located on the City Walk. There is no need to enter Universal. My wife...and I shared a bacon cheeseburger. The loaded French fries (appetizer) were a big hit. Bacon, parmession cheese, and a flavored oil sauce that really made the taste pop.More

Cowfish at Universal City Walk has been a tradition for my family and I for years. They have quite a bit of variety and a diverse menu. Basic sushi and traditional sides are there along with fried and less traditional fare. On this visit We...started with fried pickles and their Crab Rangoon Dip. Both appetizers provided a flavorful and well prepared start to our meal. The dip is always good and sets the stage for the mains. On this trip three of us had Burgushi and as always it was very good. My wife ordered a bento box with a slider and vegetable roll. Potatoes and edamame rounded things nicely and there was enough food to share. Cowfish is always a good bet for flavorful food and good service!More

We visited Universal Feb 29 to celebrate my wife’s 40th birthday and decided to visit Cowfish. We arrived around 6pm and it wasn’t too busy. All of the reservation times were available online so I didn’t see a need to book one. Lots of tables...were available. The host at the front door said that because we didn’t have a reservation our only available option was the outside bar area on the second floor in the back. Once we got there we were the only people in the whole area and we felt like outcasts. My wife and I felt uncomfortable because we felt like they were trying to hide us. If there was a table beside a urinal I think they would have put us there. It was getting chilly and we had to sit outside all by ourselves when everyone else had the option to eat inside, in the more happening area…where plenty of seats were available! Our waiter was very friendly and service was quick. Kind of hard not to be quick when we were the only ones sitting in his section! Food was ok.More

We arrive to our reservation just on time, yet they made us wait 15 more minutes cause the table wasn’t ready yet, when we arrive to the restaurant it was all over the place, waiters don’t know the number of the tables so they asked...to everyone if what they carried was their food multiple times, waited 20 more minutes for someone to take our order and when we asked for paper menus (since we dont have any internet in our phones in the us as we are tourists) the only answer we recieved was “We dont have any, unfortunately, bye” before running away. So bad we actually took our stuff and leave, overpriced and messy like a fastfood food court instead of a restaurant, go to Vivo or Bigfire Grill instead and dont waste your time.More
