Beautiful restaurant with amazing food! They set up the restaurant so there was plenty of room between tables. All staff wore face mask and they took our temperature as we entered the restaurant. I had a Cosmo before dinner and my husband had a tequila mixed drink that was so delicious and refreshing. The bread they served before dinner was the best I’ve ever had, snd we bought a loaf to take with us. The meal was fresh, flavorful and delicious! We ordered Cream brûlée for dessert, which was also the best we’ve had! Well worth the money for a nice dinner and ambience.

I just moved to Colorado two months ago, and my elderly mother decided to come for a visit for her birthday. I’d been skiing in Telluride in February, but didn’t know anything else about the area. A quick search said Cosmopolitan was the #1 restaurant in Telluride, and it MOST CERTAINLY is. I made a reservation for 5, explaining that it was her birthday, we hoped for a seat with a lovely view, and Cosmo most certainly delivered! Amazing service, very knowledgeable and professional staff. We had the best pork chop I’ve ever tasted, succulent lamb, braised spare ribs melted in your mouth, and the blueberry pie with sour cream ice cream was heavenly! I look forward to going back to try other menu items!

The restaurant did an amazing job at taking precautionary measures for Covid, while also still making it feel “normal” and very elegant. Food was amazing and came out quickly. Our waiter was super attentive. We will definitely be coming back again when we are in Telluride!!

This place was fantastic. Great location right across the street from the Gondola station. Service was excellent. We had the lobster corndogs, seared tuna tataki & spicy tuna roll as appetizers. They were all excellent. I'm VERY sensitive to "fishy" smelling fish and all the fish dishes very very fresh tasting and the temperatures were perfect (warm rice, cold fish), which proves the rolls were freshly made. We had the braised short rib for dinner, which was so delicious and tender. I didn't even need a knife to cut the meat, and the mashed potatoes were so creamy and the perfect complement to the meat.

I'm not much of a sweets person, but decided to look at the dessert menu out of curiosity and also since my husband IS a sweets person. We got the blueberry pie with sour cream ice cream for dessert at our waiter's recommendation. I almost cried tears of joy. Buttery, salty, sweet and tangy all together and perfectly balanced.

I may be spending the next year of my life trying to reproduce that meal at home. Although I'm sure it will be impossible. ;)

Great place, amazing cuisine! Has been a top priority mainstay of Telluride restaurants. They’ve done well to implement 19 different covid-19 processes to keep us safe. Service was a bit slow at first, even though we were one of the first to be seated. Bright white linens, but for some reason no crumbers in use this time. Replacement silverware also on the slow side, but still very attentive and knowledgeable staff.

Thanks to great service and well executed co-vid procedures, we had a lovely dinner at Cosmopolitan. The cocktails, sushi rolls, and poki were excellent starters. Unfortunately, all of our entrees arrived at room temperature, and the halibut special lacked salt and the risotto was mush. The other dishes were flavorful.
