Justin our server was friendly, accommodating and despite being super busy he was happy and very energetic and smiled the entire time....he was the same with all the tables in our section...

The food was delicious, every surrounding table finished their food....the Lemon beignets were absolute Divine

Ambiance was perfect...it’s a fabulous neighborhood restaurant...noise is moderate

Would definitely come again here and highly recommend it for dinner

Thank you Justin

I had wild Idaho trout, and it was fantastic. The preparation was wonderful. The next night I had the cassoulet. That was equally great. The staff is really friendly. And it’s very pleasant place.

We were there to celebrate an engagement dinner. Not only was the food and service wonderful, but the Staff also positioned us in a cozy spot, welcomed us both with champagne on the house and picked up our dessert to celebrate the occasion. Overall a classy experience!

Cosmopolitan is located right across the station so extremely convenient if you stay at Mountain Village and ride the Gondola.

This a charming place with attentive, personal service. It is long, narrow and segmented so view is somewhat limited. Choices are also limited, but in number, not in variety or appeal. Excellent bar and a very r prtienced, accomplished kitchen.

Stopped in for a quick dinner as guests were arriving much later in the evening. We were seated quickly and ordered our adult wine beverages. We chose the Shrimp and Calamari appetizer. It was delicious with the tangy sauce. For the mains, we did the Tomahawk Pork Chop and the Corvina fish special. Both were very enjoyable and tasty. Of course we appreciated the attentive service and fine cuisine. Hope to be back soon.

We come to Cosmo for our annual 'last supper' to close out our ski week. It was another great experience at Cosmo. The pork chop was to die for. One of the best pork dishes qqever. Two table mates got the filet, like they do every year, and they raved about it. The Brussels sprouts with it were perfect. Both said it was cooked (rare and med rare)to perfection. The bread is really good. Wait staff is very good. Wine list is good.

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.
