The Cowfish at Universal Orlando Citywalk...Sushi and burgers?

NEW PHOTOS 5/2017 available HERE

What an odd concept.  Sushi and burgers, and truly, along with outrageous drinks, burgers and sushi are what are on the menu at The Cowfish.  Reservations are recommended if you know when you want to go.  With no reservations, during certain peak times you'll have to wait a bit.

It is a large restaurant that is funky and cool, and was our choice to celebrate a 21st birthday before heading to Halloween Horror Nights.  We decided to sit out on the covered outdoor area, and they gave us a great table that overlooked Citywalk.

The service was just okay.  Once we were sat it took a while for someone to take our drink orders, and a couple different people came over, saying our server was busy and they would help us, but then they'd never return.  We finally had drinks, and throughout the meal the service wasn't exactly bad, but it was not good either.  The server was friendly but mainly absent, and they were the only restaurant on the whole duration of our trip (Universal and Disney) that did nothing to recognize the birthday girl, despite it being her actual birthday, us telling them when we checked in for our reservation, her wearing a Universal birthday button and an "I'm 21 Today" shirt.

The drinks were both innovative and delicious.

Buffalos and Bacon

The prices seem to be an average of around $14 to $15 per entree, which wasn't out of line.  The appetizers we ordered were very tasty.

Here are our entrees.  All of the food was enjoyed, and the sweet potato fries were my favorite part.  Each member of our party enjoyed their food, and we had no complaints.

Bento Boxes

In summary, it is a fun restaurant to try, but I wouldn't choose it as a place to celebrate again, as they were lackluster about it.
