    Made reservations at the last minute and felt lucky to get in. And we were not disappointed. Starting with the server, to the drinks, to main meal and dessert, all were outstanding. I had the duck -loves it and my husband had the salmon. They cooked it just the way he liked it. If we were staying longer, we would return!

    It was a romantic dinner for our one year wedding anniversary. We sat outside with a view of the gondolas going up the mountain. Our server recommended one of the best Zinfandel wines we’ve ever had! I probably wouldn’t get the sushi again, it was good but not the same level as my husband’s dinner. Next time I’ll get an entrée, maybe the salmon. He loved his surf and turf, and we both loved the blueberry pie tart! Those tiny blueberries and ice cream were unforgettable! Great service. We had a wonderful time.

    We are 70-ish and celebrated our 46th anniversary here. The food and the service were outstanding and we were not disappointed in our choice, but the music was fairly loud and was disco/techno, which drove up the conversation level in the room pretty much to shouting, which is what we had to do with each other. Still, all in all all a very enjoyable experience.

    This was one of the best dinners my wife and I have had in 15 years. The service by Amber was friendly and on point. The food was extraordinarily flavorful and delicious (we got the filet, chicken, blueberry dessert, and creme brûlée). The sauces were awesome and the fresh bread had a chewy and salty taste—very unique, fresh, and mouth watering. We will never forget this night!

    Chads food at Cosmo never disappoints. His creativity with flavors in an artistic presentation keep me returning year after year. His sauces on fish, meat and poultry are the perfect compliment. His veggie dishes are fresh and often locally sourced The daily made bread and desserts are rare to find. The ambiance is perfect for a relaxing and memorable evening. There no wonder why this chef has been a telluride chef for 25 years
