    Let's start with the positives. The room is warm, inviting and nicely open given it's somewhat narrow footprint. We sat perched at the upper section ledge where we could see the seating areas below, very nice. The food was quite good though, since we had apps at our condo, only had main courses. Then, because of the weak service, skipped dessert but our mains were well plated and tasty. I had the 1/2 chicken with polenta, arugula (which doubled as a salad) and it was pounded flat, generously flavored with rosemary and other herbs, excellent. Wife had the duck breast which she enjoyed very much. Where this meal fell apart...service was inattentive and at 8:30pm the place was busy but not packed. Finally the seemingly experienced server gentlemen took our wine order (glasses this evening). At least 15 minutes later, my wife's wine showed up with an explanation that what I ordered wasn't avail. He left me the menu to alternate select. 10 minutes later took my new selection. 10 minutes later our main courses were served and I still had no wine glass. 5 minutes later he came by and said they somehow found my original selection for which he oddly wanted some sort of reward for the amazing effort (when all I wanted was my wine 35 minutes prior). No offer to comp it, no offer for a comp dessert and most importantly NO apology for the 45 minute wait for a glass of wine and disappearing for long periods; inattentive. My last negative seems to be a better Telluride issue and something seen around the country here and there. The better Telluride restaurants tack on a 4% extra fee with different, inconsistent names. These are not cheap restaurants. If you want to pay your back kitchen staff more, CHARGE MORE. I won't notice or care. But tack on an extra 4% "hospitality" or whatever fee and expect me to then add a 20%-25% tip? INSULTING. Not playing that game. Charge anything you want but skip the B. Tip REDUCED!

    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.
