Don't miss this food!!!!
We had an amazing dinner. We were first seated at interior table, but were moved to a window table on request. The shrimp and calamari appetizer was delicious, ceased salad is a must!!! We had the surf and turf, duck two ways and lamb. All three were 5 star dishes and truly fabulous. We tried two desserts, creme brûlée and the coconut dish. Again, both delicious. The coconut was very unique, with a French influence and a must try. They have a solid wine list and a top notch 20 year tawny port. This was our first time dining at Cosmos and will be back.
Our server was Greg, who was great!

Good all around
Always worth a meal here when inTelluride. Interesting, eclectic menu with something for everyone.
Not truly haute cuisine, but most dishes are well prepared and hit the spot after a day of skiing.
The children LOVE the bananas foster with chocolate lava cake. (Any restaurant that serves such a thing is tops with them!)
Ambience is lively but not overly loud - easy to have a nice conversation.

Our "go to" Telluride Restaurant
Our perennial favorite restaurant in Telluride, the "go to" as our first and last eat when we are in town. Many favorites, but the Calamari and Shrimp Appetizer is not to be missed - the best we have had - anywhere.

Our food was excellent. Probably the best meal we had in Telluride. The service was slow, but I think that had more to do with the large party seated next to us. Would definitely recommend Cosmopolitan.

Took a client and his family
Took a client and his family here for dinner. We had a group of eight and I couldn't have been happier with the experience. This is the best 4-5 star restaurant in Telluride. Food and service was great from start to finish. We were coming from Mountain Village and the access is extremely easy from the gondola. I would definitely book here again, either for a romantic dinner with my wife or for another larger group.
I give the ambiance 3 stars because we were located in the back in something that looked like a fabric covered structure. It didn't detract from the evening, but it was noticeable if you looked up.

Gem of Telluride
Been going here for over 13 years - always the best. Never had a bad meal. Much better value than Sheridan.

Absolutely the best restaurant in Telluride .... Consistently the best!

Fantastic landmark restaurant
Fantastic landmark restaurant in lovely downtown Telluride, just off the gondela. Our table had the roasted chicken as well as the surf and turf. Both were phenomenal. I would definitely recommend.
4/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
Perfectly cooked filet. My wife ordered the halibut which was also good. Great service. They make their own bread which is rustic and flavorful. Only complaint is that the seared scallops appetizer was a bit cold. Will definitely return.

Never Fails to Please
Chad continues to run the best restaurant in Telluride! Always amazing!

Another great evening...
My wife and I have dined at Cosmo many times and we have never been disappointed. Our last experience Saturday night was one of the best. The hostess greeted us with a smile upon entering and was very prompt and courteous when seating us. Our waiter, Lindsay, was truly wonderful and made our dining experience a pleasure. She was very knowledgable about the wine and menu selections with recommendations that were spot-on. She also had a great attitude and smile throughout the evening! The support staff was great too! The food was all made to perfection! The Salmon Volcano Roll, Salads, Steak, Lobster, and Black Forest Cherry Cheescake were all excellent!
Keep up the great work and thanks for a great evening!

Not up to former standards
Cosmopolitan used to be our favorite restaurant in Telluride. Our last visit changed our mind: both dishes were served barely luke-warm, the sauce in the noodles-and-halibut dish was almost completely tasteless, and the sushi dish totally lacked flavor.
6/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
We've been to Cosmo many times when we're in Telluride. It's consistently the best restaurant in town by far. Highly recommended!
6/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wow ... Amazing Meal
We had another great experience at Cosmo tonight ... the best restaurant in Telluride by far! The new craft cocktails were amazing, as were the entrée specials! Highly recommended!
6/26/2013 5:00:00 PM
One of our favorite Telluride dining experiences. We have never had an average meal at this restaurant. They also have a raw menu that sports the best sushi in town. Book ahead, it gets busy!

Dinner July 4th, 2013
Rest. quaint & nicely situated at base of the Gondola. We had a delectable shrimp/calamari dish w/lemon & lime slices-loved this appetizer. Husb. ordered a grilled chicken dish w/pureed peas that we both enjoyed. I had a salad arranged in 5 separate, finely chopped lines,on the plate - greens, egg, salmon, avocado, peanuts, dried fruit. Although the salad was tasty the combination of dried fruit and raisins, dates and pumpkin seeds etc. mixture was very hard-too hard to chew. We ordered the famous blueberry pie and sour cream icecream-one of the most memorable deserts we have ever eaten. Total perfection. We are going to return to the Cosmopolitan Telluride next year.
7/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
this dining experience was just right!
The happy hour is awesome! Andrew is a well trained, friendly bar tender. Our meal of beet salad and Opah entree were delightful.
7/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have been in Telluride 7 years and have seen restaurants come and go, but Cosmopolitan has been a constant. We have never had a bad meal. We love bringing out of town guests as they are always impressed.
7/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fantastic but wine overpriced
We went for a special occasion and have no regrets. The food was pricey, but worth it - we had fresh, local produce and moist, flavorful sea bass. The staff was attentive, yet relaxed. A great experience overall. My only negative is that the wine was overpriced - $60 for a decent (not amazing) bottle. We will go again, but will simply forego the wine.

Delicious, but pricy
Delicious, but pricy...each plate beautifully presented with fresh and appealing food combinations..
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
The most consistent fine dining restaurant in Telluride. From the service, the martinis, in-house baked bread, calamari and shrimp, chopped salad, to the wild salmon, etc. this is a great food experience.
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Cosmo's is Heaven Sent
Cosmo's is a wonderful restaurant. It is in a great location by the gondola for those coming down from Moutain Village. Their beet salad is yummy and all the sushi is great. You will not go wrong with anything on the menu.
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Happy Hour prices for
Great Happy Hour prices for food and, you guessed it, Cosmos.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Soup spoons and soup lacking
The chicken soup sounds interesting but lacked salt and depth. The soup spoons are weird shape and not comfortable in ones mouth...too deep and oval ..the sushi was supurb as we're the entrees and blueberry pie with sour cream ice cream..great! Service was perfect.
8/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Picked a great spot!
My boyfriend and I went to the Cosmo for a late night dinner, we got all dolled up and it was amazing! We were sat at a somewhat private table, it was quiet, the lighting was perfect. I ordered a traditional Moscow Mule (amazing), boyfriend had a gin and tonic (well balanced). I consider myself a bit of a prime rib connoisseur, the prime rib two ways was incredible, boyfriend loved the surf and turf. It's a little pricey but completely worth it. No buyers remorse here.
8/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Top 3 Restaurant in Telluride!
Cosmopolitan is one of my favorite spots in Telluride. Creative, local food, service is outstanding and beautiful ambience. The restaurant is located off Colorado Ave (main street) and just steps away from the gondola. I highly recommend the fish stew or the halibut. You will not be disappointed!
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful Anniversary Dinner!
My husband and I celebrated our anniversary here and had a wonderful time. We happened to be visiting Telluride during Film Fest so the place was likely more "energetic" than usual, but that didn't detract. The food was perfect (we both had the filet and my husband's requests for substitutions were quickly and happily accommodated). The only negative was the terribly overpriced wine list. We've never seen such inflated prices before. That shouldn't be. (We got over it, though, when my husband found the same wine he opened following his proposal to me many years ago. :-) If you're looking to celebrate a special occasion and you're not on a budget, this is the place.

sushi in Telluride
great sushi rolls for "Appetizer" or main!!
try the nori crusted salmon or the volcano rolls.
enjoyed the main courses as well.
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
They were very busy, so we knew we would need a reservation, we were seated promptly and had very good service throughout. Food was delicious, prices are very fair, given the location and quality of food.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a nice experience
The food never disappoints. I think this resturant has the most exciting vibe, of any restaurant in Telluride, when you walk in. All age guests that we take into Cosmopolitan love the experience.
The wait staff is noticeably not as friendly as the wait staff at other restaurants in town and you will sit for long periods of time with no staff attention.

The Cosmopolitan has been a go-to restaurant for me for some time. Always delicious, always consistent, with an extremely friendly and accommodating staff.

Cosmopolitan is the most consistent
Cosmopolitan is the most consistent Telluride fine dining restaurant in terms of quality of service, food, and beverage. As a local, I always know I will get my money's worth and not be disappointed. I also appreciate the change of menu during the seasons while also keeping some favorites on the menu year round. The happy hour is the best in Telluride.

Best Restaurant in Telluride
Simply an outstanding restaurant. Every single portion of our meal was perfect and delicious. A delicious sushi roll for an appetizer. Beautiful green salad with apple slices, pomegranate seeds and a bit of soft cheese. Tasty beef filet with a sauce of local porcini and finally a great desert of blueberry pie with ice cream.
We shared every dish and it was not an issue. Service was very attentive and efficient. Prices are on the high side, but the quality matches the price. There are also some items on the menu that can't be had elsewhere in Telluride like Surf and Turf.
It was our last night in Telluride for this trip so we could not come back. A tactical error.
9/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
It was my birthday dinner and the staff was wonderful. The food was outstanding. It is our Telluride Favorite!!
10/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
One of the finest meals in my life. My wife and I ordered the pan fried halibut. It was so good I personally went to the kitchen area to compliment the chef. It just doesn't get any better! The local mixed green salad was superb. The server suggest an excellent bottle of chardonnay to accompany the dinner.
10/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
very good indeed
Very good food and nice wine list, expensive but you can dind some good deals!

Cosmopolitan has always been one of our favorites in Telluride! Did not like calamari until I ate it here, food is exceptional, staff are great, and beignets are New Orleans good!

One of the Best in Telluride
We had a wonderful experience at Columbia. The food was fresh and cooked to excellent standards! The service was very attentive without being intrusive. We look forward to dining here next time we are in Telluride!
10/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Exceptional dining choice!
My girlfriend and I took a nice two day vacation in early October to Telluride and Mountain Village, and we came across this restaurant. It was absolutely outstanding. The food was some of the best I've ever had at a restaurant and we both want to come back again! I highly recommend this place! It might be a touch on the expensive side, but every bite was worth it and we still think about it. I had never had Lobster Tail before, but the Surf & Turf was splendid and a great choice for a first time Lobster!
10/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food,poor service
Food and ambience were wonderful. Server was Not attentive and brought the wrong salad and when we mentioned it, he said he knew order was wrong, but assumed we would Not mind.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Enjoyed our dinner at Cosmo again on our recent visit to Telluride.
The food is very good. Best Caesar Salad anywhere.
The chefs always cook the fish and beef perfectly.
Our waiter Matt is very good at finding the right wine.
The newly remodeled dining area is very nice.
Best bar scene in town.
10/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Cosmo is hands down the best restaurant in Telluride! Year in and year out, Chad and his team excel!

A go-to place in Telluride
The Cosmopolitan is our favorite restaurant and a destination when we stay at our place in Telluride.
Super service and wonderfully prepared and varied menu and wine choices.
12/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
consistently great food
We eat here one of our evenings whenever we are spend a couple nights in Telluride. It is always great food & a varied menu: you cannot go wrong. The happy hour sushi specials seem very popular too (we are not sushi eaters so can only go by the crowd it draws).
