Diner Reviews
  • "My friends and I had a delicious time at Cosmopolitan for dinner. Quick derive and polite staff. We went upstairs to Wave Night Club afterwards and it was not busy, but a nice time. "

  • "My wife and I went to Cosmopolitan for dinner the other night and had a great time. The restaurant itself was impressive looking. It was a slower weeknight and everyone from the valet to our waitress was friendly an not rushed. The food was amazing. My wife had the shortribs and I ordered the filet. It was so tender I could cut it with my fork. Overall this is a great place for a special night out. "

  • "This was my second time at the Cosmopolitan. It's a perfect spot for "date night". I love the decor of this renovated building. The owners have done a fantatic job making it elegant but not pretentious. We had a great server (Nino) who was working several tables but very attentive to all. The restaurant has a very good wine list, some great speciality drinks (the white cranberry cosmo is amazing), and a good selection of very nice dishes. The duck breast and the chicken were both perfectly cooked but both of us preferred the duck over the chicken. We heard Nino recommend the creme brulee to another table so we already decided that's what we would share for dessert. Nino said it was the best in the city and he was spot on!"

  • "As always the Cosmopolitan does not disappoint, the food is fabulous. We've tried many of the entrees and all of them have been great. The only reason I gave service a 4 star is because of the long wait after being seated to get your first drink. This has happened on more than one occasion, so perhaps they need to consider more bar help during peak hours, otherwise our actual server, Nino, was superb as always. Even with the wait for drinks, we will definitely return here again, we just wish they would solve the slow bar service."

  • "We are new to the area and wanted to go somewhere nice for our son's first birthday. We could not have asked for a better place to have lunch with our families. The server, Rebecca, was OUTSTANDING! The restaurant treated our son with a Happy Birthday ice cream plate with a candle! What a way to spend your first birthday! And they offer complimentary valet parking! We will definitely go back and highly recommend this place!"

  • "Our first visit here and everything went great. Food was expertly prepared with great presentation. Staff was very attentive and did a great job. Also the manager Seth was great and took good care of us. He seemed genuinely concerned with how everything in the restaurant was going. Recommend Cosmopolitan highly and it has become one of our favorites."

  • "Chose a rainy day and anticipated parking would be a challenge, but the restaurant offers complimentary valet parking and the service there was excellent. The hostess seated me and took my coat, returning a ticket to retrieve the coat to my table. The waitperson was likewise superb. The lunch menu choices were excellent. I chose the speciality item (gnocchi) and was very pleased with the portion (not too much) and the quality of the food. I will definitely go there again."

  • "Made reservations for dinner with friends to celebrate my birthday. The restaurant is beautiful and charming. The bar is lovely. Seating area for dinner is very nice and comfy. Our waiter was very friendly and knew his menu well. He was quick and very accomodating. The food was delicious. I ordered the Mahi Mahi and finished the entire plate. Which I never do. The prices were a little high though. And 3 people ordered the filet mignon and the waiter said they were only down to 2 filets so one person had to change his order, but the waiter gave us free desserts b/c of that. I was disappointed b/c the dance club upstairs was closed that night for repairs, so i didn't get to see it. However, i'll be sure to come back soon !!!! A great find :)"

  • "The food was tasty and visually appealing. The service was slow because there were only two waiters to serve around 11 or so tables. Price of the food was over priced especially in light of the food portions served. Atmosphere and ambiance were okay. Additional pieces of artwork and playing of live classical music or smooth jazz would enhance the eating experience at the restaurant."

  • "My girlfriend and I ate here on Valentines Day. After valet parking we were seated in the downstairs dining area for dinner. The inside was sophisticated yet modern. We were treated so well by our waiting staff. The right amount of chat, but not too much. The waiter suggested very good wines and drink specials and knew the menu inside out. Everything was very well presented, delicious and good value. The food was exceptional. It's a higher end than most of the area restaurants and I'd highly recommend it."

  • "Bad weather - glad there was valet service. Outside persons friendly and efficient. Inside persons equally friendly and efficient. Didn't object when I asked for a different table - but maybe I shouldn't have had to ask. Cesear salad dressing tasty. Chicken breast and stuff that went with it very good - would get again. Wife liked the filet even though a little more done than she wanted (medium vs. medium rare). Staff was great about it - offered to replace but she liked it the way it was. Gave us a dessert - choclate tower - for which I offer thanks but don't recommend. Waitress attentive and friendly. Overall, very nice evening and look forward to return."

  • "My girlfriend and I were looking for a different Sunday brunch and thought of the Cosmopolitan. We did not want a full buffet style brunch with too much food to partake. The Cosmopolitan was perfect. The service was great and the food was perfectly done. Did I mention she loved the Mimosas? I would definitely recommend this brunch to anyone and the complementary valet parking was a bonus."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "We have dined here several times and they never disappoint. The food and service is always 5 star. Our last trip was for Valentines Day and we usually don't done out on holidays anymore because we've found service to be lacking on those days as most places seem to be in a rush to get you out. This was not the case at Cosmopolitan. The service was great as always and they allowed us to Take our time enjoying our food, drinks and company of friends."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Great service, from valet parking to our waiteris. But the food wasn't good at all. For the price of it, the food should have been outstanding but is wasn't. I would NOT recommend this place unless they get some chefs that can actually cook and it would worth spending so much money on. The bad food just ruined the whole experience for my fiancée and I."

  • "We had a wonderful evening at Cosmopolitan. The place is beautiful and the food was wonderful. The rose given to my wife at the end of the evening was a nice touch."

  • "My husband and I spent our first Valentine's Day as a married couple here and it was the most amazing night out we have had. The food was phenomenal, the staff was amazing, the valet parking was so convenient, and the night club was a perfect wrap up to the night. We danced the night away. We were so impressed we will definitely be back and tell everyone about this fabulous place. 5 stars without a doubt!!!"

  • "Our service was good. We needed to discuss our day of presentations and it was a good place to gave this discussion. More private than other locations in Allentown."

  • "We had Sunday brunch at the Cosmopolitan with our daughter who attends college in Allentown. The room was elegant and very quiet. Easy to talk and catch up. Our waiter was very attentive and helpful with menu selections. Food was good, but not special. I would dine there again to give it another chance to wow me. Might try dinner the next time."
    Dined on 2/9/2014
  • "The food was delicious and the staff gave 5 star service. Went there for a birthday dinner on 2/7/14 and was treated like a celebrity. I will definitely be dining there in the near future!"

  • "food was good, atmosphere was good. Service was a little slow. When we went out to the valet stand to get our car, the valet was nowhere to be found. He eventually strolled up with a plate of food he had gotten somewhere in the neighborhood while abandoning his post. I was shocked to see that the valet stand was abandoned and that my car key and house keys were in plain sight at the valet stand where someone could have easily grabbed my keys, found my car, looked up my address on my registration card in the glove box and robbed my house while I was having brunch. You need to lock those keys up and make sure a valet is manning the booth at all times. Very disturbing to say the least."
    Dined on 2/2/2014
  • "I really want to like this restaurant but every time I give it another chance I leave there disappointed. The food is just not up to par. They need to improve the menu. Also the valet, hostess and manager that walked around were very pleasant but our actual waiter seemed like it was his first night and made so many mistakes it was laughable. I really hope they improve the food quality bc it's not a cheap place to eat but I really like the location and want them to stay open."

  • "We love Cosmopolitan - we hit this place pretty often for happy hours & on Thursdays (when bottles of wine are 50%). Enjoyed a bottle of bubbly this evening and some nice dinners. I tried their ale based broccoli cheddar soup. I can't say it's the best thing I ever had, but it was good. My short ribs were excellent, but my husband's wagyu steak was beyond amazing. Definitely a favorite for us - whether for $5 cocktails and 1/2 price apps, or a full meal. We were celebrating my husband's new job, and they made the evening all the more special."
    Dined on 9/26/2013
  • "The bar and restaurant was beautiful but our server was not good. This was our first time to Cosmopolitan and we will not return. My wife and I had different entrees but both included mashed potatoes that were cold and tasteless. The server was absolutely awful. He was very inattentive - in fact the restaurant manager actually had to step in to take care of other tables that he was missing. I would recommend this restaurant only to see the décor of the restaurant."

  • "First time there. The complimentary valet service is a definite plus! The waiters and hostess were extremely friendly and patient. One of our party members (we were a party of 7) was 30 mins late and we had to wait for her to order...they didn't seem to mind! One negative thing was that they didn't have everything on the menu...they told us the ny strip was sold out (they only had 6) and one of the desserts....(their menu is not not extensive. one page menu. and we went on a saturday night) otherwise, it was a very good experience!"

  • "Went before the orchestra concert and they were not prepared to handle a whole restaurant of people on similar schedules. Added tension and we were rushed at the end despite allowing 2 hours for dinner. Otherwise a wonderful restaurant and would go again but not when there is a concert across the street. They were very apologetic and hopefully will better staff during concerts."

  • "This is our fourth visit to Cosmopolitan. The food is good, service much better than prior visits and the atmosphere is fantastic. I have to give great credit to the owners for having foresight and courage to build in this area. The Valet parking staff is wonderful and adds to the ease of being a dining guest. Meal was served in a very good time frame and there was no rush. The beginning bread service needs some serious re-doing, bread was still cold and "blah". Salads where great and dinner was very good. Quality products served. Dessert was wonderful going down memory lane with Hess's Strawberry Pie! THANKS for doing that! Next time I visit will be for Sal's spaghetti dinner! Another wonderul memory! Cheers!"

  • "This was our first visit to Cosmopolitan, but it may also be our last. It was our anniversary, and I wanted to try this new, upscale addition to Allentown. The wine list is VERY expensive, with almost all selections being in the $100, $200 and $300 range. We asked for wine by the glass, but there was no Cabernet available -- only a blend. My wife ordered scallops and could not eat them because they were so salty. Scallops is a favorite of hers and she has never had them taste this way. My PA farm chicken was very good. The ambiance was nice; the service was good; the bar looked upscale; but our next special occasion will be somewhere else, such as The Glasbern or Grille 3501."

  • "I didn't know such a lovely place existed in the Lehigh Valley. I was back in the area with my partner visiting the area, and we did not expect to have such a romantic evening with such a wonderful menu and good wine. The lighting was a little too dark, as it made it hard to read the menu. Otherwise, great atmosphere, great service, and GREAT food!"
