Food was unique and fantastic. Service from start to finish is impeccable. Consistently the best restaurant in town.

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!

The Cosmo has been at the top level of restaurants in Telluride for two decades. It's still going strong.

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.

Food quality seemed down from years past. Seemed to be overpriced for what was served. This has been a yearly stop during our week in Telluride but will probably shuffle into every two-three rotation.
