Outstanding Sunday BrunchEverything we ate was fabulous. They were able and gracious about accommodating a gluten free guest. Expensive but great food.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and reasonableGreat food and reasonable prices, but service can be hit or miss. They are particularly not great at pacing meals.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and service wereThe food and service were very good. The noise level was a little high. The high ceiling really allowed the noise to carry and made it somewhat challenging to have a conversation.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMfiletwe loved our starters, but i felt my filet was very over-seasoned and too salty.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMDefinite recommendation...Excellent experience, delicious food and great atmosphere.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMCreating happy new memoriesWe had a most memorable & lovely evening., Everyone was very welcoming & helpful from the gentlemen in valet to our hostess and especially the superb service of our waitress who shared w / us the rich heritage of Allentown & the Lehigh Valley.

I've eaten here many times and had my wedding here as well and have never had anything less than a fantastic experience.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful!The neighborhood simply does not deserve this gem. From the wine list to the service to the food to the ambiance...simply top notch. Thank you for a terrific anniversary evening, Cosmo.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent experienceThis was our second time at Cosmopolitan and it was outstanding. The menu selections were wonderful and we had a pleasantly difficult time deciding. We were impressed with the quality of the food and the excellent service. We were celebrating our anniversary, so we felt a little overdressed compared to most of the other diners.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary/Mother's Day DinnerWe celebrated two events at our dinner. My son was running late on his way in from New York City, so I called the restaurant and they were very understanding. They moved our reservation back one half hour, which set the tone for the whole night. Our server was very knowledgeable about the history of the restaurant and Hess's. We shared wonderful memories with her and this added to the whole experience. The food was beyond wonderful. Every course was delicious and the wine list was very nice. We decided that this will be our "go to place" when they are able to come in for a week-end. Thanks for a special evening.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMTRY THE WAGYU STEAK!!!Where to start? OK, go to Cosmopolitan and get the Wagyu steak. It will be THE BEST steak you have ever had. I have been to steakhouses, and this was better. Also, go on Thursday for 1/2 price bottles of wine. This is a real deal - you can either go cheap and get a bottle of wine for $20, or you can get a fabulous bottle for half price. Here are the things currently that are yummy: gnocci, crab cake, beet salad, onion soup, short ribs, chicken, and yes, the WAGYU!!!! The filet is great too. Oh and the bearnaise is perfect! Finally, if you like champagne, their house champagne is yummy. Not too bitter.
Not to mention that cosmo is THE most gorgeous restaurant in the Valley - and they have valet parking. So, go.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMOur dinner experience wasOur dinner experience was excellent, food was delicious. Cosmopolitan is a definite keeper!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing.ambiance outstanding.

Overall a really nice place for a special occasion. Beautiful bar as well. Hess's strawberry pie was even better than Hess's used to make it. Would definitely recommend the restaurant.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMLunch at the CosmoMy wife and I spent a pleasant two hour lunch here last Thursday afternoon. The facilities were outstanding and quite unexpected. Everything was first class.
Lunch was served in the first floor reception area which was comfortable for the smaller lunch crowd. The upper floors were much larger and suited for a dinner crowd or banquet.
The food matched the facilities. My rib-eye steak sandwich was very tasty and my wife loved her salad. I had a house red which was more then passable. I skipped dessert, since I was reminded of my New Year's Resolution.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great dinner . .We had a great dinner . . .

Hubby and I are always looking for a good plate of spaghetti! From the moment we got out of our car (free valet parking!) until the time we left, I have to say our evening was perfect! This restaurant is beautifully decorated and to me, felt very romantic! Our service was beyond great, it was impeccable! The spaghetti was delicious, the suggested wine was superb and I even had room for my favorite dessert - creme brulee!3/5/2013 12:00:00 AMSeats near the entrance wereSeats near the entrance were very cold, but could be easily remedied.
