    The chef's flavors were off. Honey on a Tuna roll? The chef also likes his salt shaker. Even the beet salad was too salty and the 2 main courses were salt saturated. The service was great and the setting was good/

    It was my birthday and we were visiting from out of town. We made reservations and had an incredible meal. Great wine, awesome appetizer (the corn dog lobster) OMG! So good! We had the filet and carrot cake for dessert. To top it off Savanna was our server and she was excellent, personable and was able to recommend things from the menu, she was on point! Would absolutely recommend this restaurant to everyone wanting a classy excellent meal.

    Cosmopolitan - TellurideResponded on November 22, 2022Wow! Thank you so much for excellent review and feedback. We will absolutely pass on your comments to Savanna.

    We loved our time at Cosmopolitan. Great service by Gillian and delicious food. Of course, we ate too much but it was worth it! The steak was cooked perfectly and the desserts are worth the calories! Finish your dessert with hot chocolate and home made marshmallows, you will wobble all the way home! Well, at least we did! Highly recommend!

    The Cosmopolitan has always been one of our favorite restaurants in Telluride. This was the only time we were disappointed with the experience. A large table of ladies celebrating halloween were extremely load...screaming at times. My wife and I could barely have a conversation. As for the food, flavor was wonderful (as usual), but my food was served cold. Also, noticed prices have gone up dramatically.

    Cosmopolitan - TellurideResponded on November 8, 2022Dear Bart, Thank you for the feedback. We are truly sorry that the experience was less than desired. Please call 970-708-1059 and ask for Erin so that we can make this right for you. We hope you will come back and dine with us again.

    We have been Cosmos customers for many years. It has been one of our favorites. We are local. The salad looked good, but was overdressed and too strong on the vinegar side. There was also no honey in the honey vinegar dressing. The “barbecue salmon” was nothing more than ordinary salmon cooked ordinarily with a dripping of barbecue sauce on top. Except for the usual great service, an altogether disappointing meal.

    We arrived early and enjoyed a cocktail at the bar, created by Kyle, who gave us some excellent recommendations and warm conversation. I ordered duck breasts and the chopped salad, my husband had the black cod and seafood corn dogs (a mix of shrimp and crab- excellent!). Our server was very attentive and we enjoyed a bottle of Malbec with dinner. The Cosmopolitan came highly recommended by friends and family- and we see why! We’ll be back! PS- the fresh baked bread was also delicious.

    We enjoyed our meal. We loved the house bread. We had a Caesar salad and crab cake for starters. My wife had the surf and turf (shrimp tonight not lobster). I had the Filet with mashed potatoes , snap peas and mushrooms. The steaks were very good as was the whole meal.

    Food lukewarm when brought to entire table. Left entire shell on the prawn. Had to tear the prawn apart to try to get the shell off. Mentioned it to the waiter. He explained The “Chef” fixes the meal this way. Why? Unknown. $4.00 for one can of Coke. I expected more for a $50 Halibut.

    Our waiter was very attentive and extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Our appetizer of fried shrimp and calamari was outstanding. It was very lightly breaded and the sauce was tasty. A very large portion, could have been shared with 4 people. I had the lamb which was cooked perfectly and was very tender. My wife had the duck which was delectable. I highly recommend the Cosmopolitan.

    This place is quite simply one of the greatest places in all of the Telluride area. Great food, conveniently located right next to the lift, great atmosphere, great staff, and great menu with just enough choices for almost everyone. It could stand a few truly innovative vegan choices, and it can get a little noisy at times; largely because everyone is enjoying themselves. But, it is a “definitely must do” while in Telluride.
