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.
Great evening...highly recommend trying outdoor dining space
Outside dining area was quiet, dog friendly with evergreen trees and stream along one side. Very attractive! Smoked raw tuna appetizer superb!
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.
Spicy tuna roll was excellent!
Food good but not excellent. Lamb shank all diced up so like a stew. Salmon overly sweet.
It was the perfect evening celebrating our son’s 30th birthday!!!
Thoroughly enjoyed dining at Cosmopolitan (which has consistently great food) service was excellent as was wine suggestion. The outside venue is wonderful!
Excellent food and service.
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.
Great, as always. Best in Telluride
This restaurant never fails to impress us and we are already looking forward to returning
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.
An absolutely fantastic meal from start to finish . Everything was cooked to perfection. A perfect evening to celebrate our anniversary.
Everything was outstanding … BestFood and service in Telluride by far. Never ever disappoints 6 Stars
Excellent food and service! As it is summer, I wish there were information that there was beautiful outdoor seating.
What an amazing experience.. amazing food!
I had the Chopped Salad and Seafood Stew, both were fantastic!
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.
Great food in a cool town! Nice restaurant for a relaxing dinner!
Food, service, and ambiance are very good, I would recommend it to others.
Excellent as always! Very well staffed with knowledgable people and the food was delicious and nicely presented. I sat inside at a hight top table, which was nice, but the outside seating looked very inviting. Prices are a bit high but it's well worth it!
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.
Always delicious. Good service in spite of the pandemic and masks.
Beautiful outdoor patio for cocktails ! One of the best Lamb shanks I’ve ever had.
This is a tough time in the restaurant business; Cosmo's team went out of their way to make our dinner, celebrating our son's engagement with his fiance and her family, truly memorable.
My favorite place year after year! The Halibut is fabulous.
Steak was very undercooked for med rare. Sent it back. Came back basically the same. Disappointing & expensive.
Our server was not the most attentive. Thought he was a little more interested in other tables. Food was fantastic though!
Wonderful food. The best I have in along time. Great service too!
We had a family reunion dinner at Cosmo. The chicken is by far my favorite dish there. Moist, flavorful, lovely wine sauce. Spectacular.
We eat at Cosmos every time we come to Telluride the food never disappoints! Great service and fabulous bar. When In T its a must to try Cosmos! Surf and Turf were off the charts!
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.
Excellent meal and service
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!
Fantastic place !! A must place to eat !!!
Wonderful atmosphere, food and service
Jeff is great!
