Diner Reviews
  • "Good food and service, except they changed the menu and I was happy they took off some of my favorites"
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "The Cosmopolitan is always excellent. Never a bad meal. Appreciate the valet service. Waitperson attentive and courteous, although set down used knife back on table cloth rather than replace it with clean, or, at least, place it on side plate. No outdoor seating, yet, but informed by host that it is planned. Prices high, which is OK, but to stay competitive in a rapidly evolving restaurant market in downtown the restaurant should offer a broader menu with additional less expensive options. While the new restaurant around the corner (The Hamilton) was hopping with a full patio of patrons, we counted only 8 other seated customers by the time we left at ~ 9:00. It almost seemed a little matronly, rather than elegantly chic."

  • "We come here fairly often, and this week's visit wasn't their strongest. Food was good but not stupendous...they had changed their specials without updating their website, and our server kind of disappeared after our main courses were checked on (a runner cleared our table, brought us dessert menus, etc)."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "We visit here every few weeks and as always the food and service never disappoints!"
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "Perfect venue for a 20 year anniversary. Our experience was great from the time we exited the car! Our server (Rebecca??) was truly attentive to us. Food was beyond fabulous. Many good wishes to the restaurant and staff with the downtown revitalization!"
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "The restaurant is very nice with beautiful interior. The valet attendants were cheerful and attentive. We had a reservation and were sat immediately. The tables were about 75% full. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary. The wine and beer list was extensive. We ordered the cheese & meat plate appetizer and it came with some great selections (very tasty). We both ordered the filet. She likes hers well-well-done and we made that request (asked for it to be butterflied to be sure). I ordered mine medium. Hers came slightly pink and my was a little too done. We sent hers back and it came back perfect. Our server was great, talkative and interested in us. He was very responsive to our table. Overall good meal, nice place."

  • "This is a good place to take a girl on a date. Service is excellent, food's not bad, maybe a little overpriced, but overall good place."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "Felt we experienced top shelf service and food to match. A bit pricey but the service and food is par with pricing so from standpoint it's a wash. Absolutely we will become frequent fliers. "
    Dined on 5/29/2014
  • "The service and food don't really match the atmosphere that I imagine the restaurant is going for. I've been here twice for brunch. The food is just alright, but at the same time I don't necessarily think they overcharge either (you can get away for about $10-12 for a brunch entree) so I guess that works out. The service is pretty below average. The second time I went to Cosmopolitan, I tried to order the bottomless mimosa deal. The server informed the table that they wouldn't be offering the deal because "they were busy" that day. Seriously?? The decor is very nice and gives off an upscale feel but I've honestly had better service at McDonald's."

  • "Went here to celebrate my daughters college Graduation. It was amazing to find a place Of this caliber in Allentown Pa. Or in this Part. They have free valet parking Which was nice as well. Too bad I found this restaurant her last year and not her First. We had brunch. Which was excellent But the lunch and dinner menu looks spectacular I'm sorry I don't live near by "
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "For the quality and service level. Especially the wine list"
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "Cosmopolitan offers the diner an outstanding experience from the time you get there until you leave. The friendly and helpful car valets welcome you and escort you to the entrance. The service staff is attentive, professional and not the least bit overbearing. The quality of the food will not disappoint anyone and the menu ensures tasty choices for any palate. As a "special event" destination you'd be hard pressed to find a better place. Our experience on Mother's Day was most enjoyable and we will return again soon. As a special note, Cosmopolitan offers Hess's famous strawberry pie on original Hess plates. I was in heaven with that dessert."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Service was bad, Food and Drinks were great. I'd come back for appetizers and drinks at the bar but not for an overall dining experience. Too many upper scale restaurants in the Lehigh Valley that have great service, for me to walk away from here feeling unsatisfied!!"
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Took my mom there for Mother's Day. The food was very good; would have been excellent had it been hot and not just warm (brioche french toast and Chesapeake Benedict)! I really enjoyed the Blood Orange Mimosa. Our waiter was not very attentive. Always had to flag him down to get coffee refills. As to the ambiance - kind of blah. Not much decoration and not very colorful. We were on the ground floor and didn't see any of the other types of rooms so my comments are strictly for the area to the right of the entry. Still, we would return there and give it another chance as the food was quite good."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Took my parents here for brunch on Mother's Day. The service was slow but the bloody marys were fantastic and the food very flavorful and hot."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "We went for Sunday brunch and the food was fair not great (they used deli meat ham instead of Canadian bacon on my eggs benedict). The service however is what really made it an unenjoyable experience. Our server was inattentive, didn't refill water, clear plates, ask us if we wanted another drink, or remember who ordered what. She also mixed up a virgin and regular bloody mary so I ended up with booze that I didn't want. The restaraunt wasn't that busy so unless it was her first day I'm not sure what the issue was. I tipped only 15% and I usually never tip less the20%."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Our French toast was burned. The hostess did not speak with us as we were leaving. The strawberry pie was amazing, but the chocolate tower seemed stale. Great atmosphere but too many inconsistencies. "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Was looking forward to coming here, we had a FABULOUS SERVER - BUT - the waitstaff was horrible. We never got our table cleared before Dessert - the other tables got cleared and were severed bread (as there were men at our table THAT was a big deal). I was disappointed by this, so will not be eating here again. The Bar yes as the Tenders there are GREAT!"
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "The food and service was top notch. I would definitely recommend the Cosmopolitan!"
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "This is the second time my wife and I tried Cosmopolitan and again we were disappointed. The restaurant is beautiful but overall food quality was poor. My wife order duck and it was overcooked. We had to wait on water - the waiter cleaned up our salad and took our forks but did not replace so when the food arrived he dropped it off and was gone - had to ask for forks. The desert was absolutely unacceptable - chocolate tower that was stale. Would not recommend nor will we ever go back. We were the only ones in the restaurant - now we know why."
    Dined on 5/7/2014
  • "On a Wednesday night we were seated at 6:15 pm and then waited 20 minutes for a waiter to come to our table. She greeted us with, "Sorry for the confusion", and gave no explanation. The rest of our meal was served by several waiters, sometimes in pairs (training?). The food was very good, with the exception of too much garlic in our Caeser salads. The setting is lovely."
    Dined on 4/30/2014
  • "Service was particularly good. They commented that they received our special request through Open Table. Food was great--prepared as requested. Substitutions were allowed. All around an enjoyable dinner"
    Dined on 4/30/2014
  • "We had a wonderful night out at Cosmopolitan. There was a nice selection of appetizers to choose from. We shared the meat and cheese selection. It was awesome. Next, our salads were great too. Dinner was so good, like an explosion of flavor in your mouth. I had the chicken entrée and my husband had the salmon. I could not get enough of the delish flavor. We would have stayed for dessert too, but we were out of time. I can't wait to go back again."
    Dined on 4/29/2014
  • "Loved the fountain, chandelier, and Hess's Patio Strawberry pie. Nice to see these items from the old Hess's. We grew up with that store- great brunch for our dsughter's birthday!"
    Dined on 4/27/2014
  • "I've been there a few times and they change their menu pretty frequently to keep things fresh. Food is great, service is great, and it's definitely a trendy place to go. "
    Dined on 4/25/2014
  • "We've had the pleasure of having Nino as our server there multiple times and he never fails to bring 100% excellent service, which compliments the great food and experience."
    Dined on 4/23/2014
  • "The location and ambiance are enough to bring me to Cosmopolitan over and over again, but the food and service seal the deal. Lovely place, great atmosphere, and I've never been disappointed by a meal. Nothing exotic, but straightforward American fare, very nicely prepared and presented."
    Dined on 4/22/2014
  • "My experience and that of my guests was superb meal and service. We would most definetly return..I have already planned to return with other friends for our birthday in the month of May."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "It was a very positive experience...very classy from start to finish... Service & food was very good. Menu was diversified & the pricing very reasonable. The men's room first class also. It has been my experience that first class establishments usually have first class restrooms. "
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "This was our first time at the Cosmopolitan. My husband, who always has something to complain about when dining out, had no complaints here! "
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "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. "
    Dined on 4/18/2014
  • "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. "
    Dined on 4/16/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "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!"

  • "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!"
    Dined on 4/3/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 4/2/2014
  • "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 :)"
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "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."
