Cosmopolitan - Telluride Ratings and Reviews
I believe that this is the best restaurant in Telluride and as a second homeowner for 28 years we’ve been to every one over the years. This last visit was for Valentines Day and often restaurants have “ special “ menus but Cosmo sticks to their outstanding regular menu with incredible dishes and evening specials of the night. This time my husband had the evening addition of monk fish which was the best ever. I had the lamb chops and they were superb. Our server was attentive but not hovering and was extremely pleasant and knowledgeable. The atmosphere was lively but still private enough to carry on conversations . I could go on and on but Cosmo is consistently exceptional and a true Telluride gem!
First of all, the food was great. We had two main complaints:
1. The dining room was unbearably warm. We were both uncomfortable and bordering on miserable due to the temperature.
2. We arrived and were seated early, which was appreciated. The problem was our server had 3 other tables seated in the 10 minutes before us and she was slammed all night trying to keep up. She did a great job given the situation but we expected better.
This was one of the best restaurants I have ever been to. My wife got the Seafood Stew and I got the Lamb Chops. Both were amazing. The restaurant lounge, was very cool. The food options were excellent and the staff was spot on. The are very proud of their food judging by the price, but for a vacation destination, you have to eat here. The Blueberry pie for dessert was out of this world good.
we tried all the top restaurants in Telluride and this is the best one by far. great ambiance, knowledgeable and friendly staff, excellent food and good value for what is served. Hands down and easily above all others. Lobster corn dogs, lamp chops, were favorite, so good we went back a second time on our last night after try every other "highly rated" restaurant in the town and none compared to Cosmopoltan
We visit cosmopolitan whenever we're in town, so the slow kitchen and slow service made this trip a real disappointment. We'll give them another chance but on a slow night during Christmas week, there was no excuse for the kitchen being so slow to deliver food.
We had dinner 12/24, 12/25 and then decided to do it again 12/26 & 12/27 instead of going anywhere else. Tried different dinners & salads-nothing disappointed. Amazing breakfasts too. Friendly servers & very interesting people too. Overall wonderful experience only made better by staying at Hotel Columbia.
