    Came here for our 25th wedding anniversary and everything was fantastic and memorable. Waitstaff (Jeff) and the sommelier couldn’t have been nicer. The food was spectacular. The seared scallops appy totally blew my mind.

    The best thing to get is the surf & turf. The steak is incredible—tender, cooked just right, and full of flavor. The seafood they pair with it is just as good, making for a meal that's really satisfying. You can tell they care about the quality of their food. The service is great too, with staff that make sure you're well taken care of. It's the kind of place you'd pick for a special occasion or when you feel like treating yourself to something really good.

    Four of us dined on what appeared to be a normal busy evening at Cosmo, but the full house did not affect our service. Our server was Amber, and not only did she get all of our orders right, she made great suggestions, answered all of our questions, and brought our drinks out seemingly moments after we ordered them. Each of us ordered a different entree (duck, salmon, chicken, and lamb chops), and we all loved our food. The restaurant presents a very creative yet approachable menu. Highly recommend.

    Cosmopolitan has been one of our family's favorite restaurant for 20 years. I don't blame the restaurant or the staff for having to be seated in the lobby. I wish the open table app could more clearly delineate the difference between lobby seating and reastaurant seating . The restaurant's staff did its best to accomodate us but nonetheless, in the lobby we sat. I will continue to want to go to Cosmo in the future but will never again use your app to do the reservation.

    Felt like the entire experience was rushed. Somalier kept coming by and topping our glasses of 115 dollar wine- seemed like he wanted us to chug and buy more. Calamari wasn’t really crispy. Could hardly hold a conversation without someone trying to fill our water or bus our plates. Waitress was sweet but had an annoying way of addressing us as “y’all”. Menu wasn’t vey exciting.

    It was a lovely meal. Bread was delicious. We had some sushi and the chicken. All great and the blueberry pie dessert was amazing. The hot chocolate was not as flavorful as hoped and was only lukewarm when it was brought to our table. My only real issue was that We were there to celebrate my boyfriend’s birthday. I had requested this when they brought out the dessert. Not sure if they forgot or perhaps they don’t do anything special or if the message was not conveyed. Needless to say nothing was done not even a candle so that was a little disappointing. But it was a great meal and great ambiance and conveniently located right by the gondola if coming down from mountain village.

    Food was great, beet salad and caesar salad to start. Duck breast and vegetable stew for dinner. And blueberry pie for desert. And I had a wonderful Manhattan to start. The only setback was that I believe that our waiter may have ben intoxicated, he was all over the place, really ! But the food was wonderful. :o)

    We picked the Cosmopolitan in Telluride after perusing their menu online. The place is unassuming, but the hostess and wait staff were more than professional. This was like dining in a top notch New York City restaurant. The service was above our expectation. And the food. The cocktails were first rate. The food was well cooked. I had the duck breast and my wife had the surf-N-turf, all cooked to perfection. The place must has a professional chef. They know what they are doing in the kitchen. We ate at several upscale restaurants in Telluride. This by far was our best dining experience.
