We have dinner at Cosmo every time we visit Telluride - about 3x/year. It is consistently outstanding. It's now become a regular stop for us, and something we always look forward to.

Popular spot. Proximity to gondola a real plus. Good wines. Hard to understand staff due to masks and noise level. Fish was outstanding, as was beet salad.

Food good but not excellent. Lamb shank all diced up so like a stew. Salmon overly sweet.

The two hostesses were very rude and unwelcoming. I made this reservation a month out and they tried to seat me in the brightly lit lobby and were upset when I didn’t love that table. The patio was wonderful and our service was great, I just hope you don’t have to interact with the hostesses very much.

Love this place.
Food is consistently delicious, our server was friendly and attentive and the feel of Cosmo, either inside or on patio, is casual but sophisticated. Prices are definitely higher over the last year, but where aren’t they.

We ate outside on the lighted patio. The table fireplace was perfect for a summer Telluride evening. The beet salad was wonderful. I had the Colorado braised lamb with local chanterelles. It was extremely tender and seasoned perfectly. My husband had the duck and thought it was very good. Overall, a lovely evening.

Great location, good food and service, great ambiance - very expensive, which is why we marked it down. Think Michelin * restaurant prices but not it’s not a Michelin starred restaurant.

We were seated immediately as we arrived early for our reservation. The patio was wonderful - loved the firepit tables and glowing red lights. Our service was great for drinks and appetizers and then the dinner- good pacing.
The main course was delicious - all three different entrees at the table - duck, salmon and angus filet.
We would definitely recommend this as an eating experience favorite in Telluride.

I would love to give this restaurant a solid five because the service and food were outstanding. The duck was crispy and delicious our server Kristen was great. Why the low score? They have a surcharge of 4% tacked on the bill for the kitchen staff. Not only is the surcharge on food it is also on alcohol. If you can't pay a living wage, then something wrong with the business plan. Figure out the true cost of doing business and price your menu accordingly. Don't try to slide a surcharge at the bottom of the tab. For .this reason I cannot recommend this place.

We love Cosmo! We always go there when we are in town. But, this time they missed the mark big time.

Service was super slow. We didn’t get our wine until we were almost done with dinner. I enjoyed my glass of white wine when a server knocked the glass over and it fell on the floor. She said she would get me a new glass, but that didn’t happen. However, my glass of wine was on the bill even though i hardly touched it. Of course they took it off, but it would have been such a simple task to just get me a new glass right away.

Food was good, as always. But again, service was pretty bad. Don’t worry, we will be there again. If nothing else, for the lobster corn dogs.

Loved the new outdoor deck! The food and service were both excellent as usual. We had one surf and Turf and one lamb shank dinner...both were delicious. I liked my pomelo drink so much I had 2 <: Also the asparagus and smoked salmon starter was excellent. We tried it on a whim..and loved it.

Cosmo continues to be a jewel for fine dining. There are no discernible weaknesses from the front to the back of the house. My only complaint is that they’re not offering the beignets for dessert!
