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

If you like sushi this is the place to Go. They have different kinds. We got one that had fillet on top and it was absolutely delicious. The service and drinks were great as well!!

Terrible service…. at first. Thankfully Summer stepped in and made it a pleasant experience. The “manager” is a joke. He just brushed off our negative experience. As for the food, it was overpriced for what it is. We have killer sushi joints at home. We...have killer burger places as well. This was mediocre at best. If you decide to give it a go, Summer is the only good thing they have going for them.More

Been here twice now- first for dinner on Martin Luther day- sat on the 2nd floor.Took about 15 mins to be seated as we went from floor to floor waiting for the host to direct us to the next section. Sat down and waited about...10mins to be acknowledged by a waiter. Ordered the buffalo and bacon also the grapefruit smash and requested to reduced the syrup in it - still pretty sweet. Had the Mark’s and the Fire cracker rolls -both excellent and very different. Second visit was lunch the day after -sat outside and again food took to long to arrive- must be a kitchen issue as served by Loryn which was absolutely fantastic with service :Huge different to service the day before. Had the bento box which had 5 different items- loved all of them and the tropical Storm roll - also excellent. 4 out of 5 as the food is excellent but generally takes too long to arrive- had that experience on both days. Service is variable !More

We made reservations on our phone the same day. We arrived a little early and was immediately seated. We had an excellent server, Lori. Our food was delicious and the service was quick. The kid bento boxes were so cute. I always appreciate when a...restaurant makes an effort for all guests.More

Had a reservation and still had to wait. Hostess tried to seat us in the corner although there were several better tables Available in view. I asked for one and was told no? I asked for the manager and sat myself at one of the...better tables and as the manager came over he didn’t like the fact that I was doing his job better than him and asked us to leave. Don’t bother with this place as I was inside for a bit I could tell the other tables were not being helped in a timely fashion. Looks like another big money grab in universal that no matter how they treat you others will still come. Find another spot that values your business elsewhereMore

This was our second time visiting Cowfish, and not because the first experience was great. Our first time eating here a few years ago was so disappointing that we haven't been back since... so we wanted to give it another try, because, why not? The...food here is average, yet out of everything my family ordered, I will say that there was one stand out dish... "The taste explosion roll." This specific dish was rock solid, extremely tasty, and with a name that does it justice. My wife and I split the California roll, which was a standard run of the mill Cali roll... but at twice the price of a standard cali roll. My wife got the filet mignon fusion roll and it was "ok" - dry, somewhat flavorless, and disappointing. The biggest challenge we had with this place, is nearly $100 later (for lunch, I might add), we left hungry.... I'd easily order 2-3 of the taste explosion rolls, but at $18 a pop, that's simply unreasonable. I'd got back for another taste explosion roll, or 2-3, but probably not for anything else...More

Table for 8, service was great. A few of us had the Bento boxes, the rest had burgers. The sushi in the Bento Boxes were absolutely delish. My daughter was bummed she didnt just get Sushi-it was that good. Personally I love the different tastes...you get with a Bento box. The "burger" in the Bento box is more of a meatball, I wouldn't even call it a slider ... but still tasty! Overall, we will definitely eat here next time we are at Universal!More

Made a reservation at 4:30 (only table available supposedly). We weren't seated until 5:15. The place was EMPTY! The hostess was nasty and rude. Food was horrible. I've had better, fresher sushi from the grocery store. Tuna was mushy and smelled. Overall a horrible experience....Would never go back.More
