Celebrated our anniversary at Cosmos, and had a personalized five course menu. Every course was excellent, and the chef came to our table and explained each one. A very memorable meal!

Our 50th Anniversary dinner before the Willie Nelson/Alison Krauss concert was a wonderful date at Cosmos. We haven’t been for many years, but were completely satisfied with the choices and the entrees and appetizers, as well as Alicia’s helpful guidance and background on the chef’s preparations. We appreciated the complimentary anniversary chocolate vegan cake!

As a second time customer, I was so excited to go back to Cosmos as the first time I went there I was beyond impressed both with the food and the service. I am sorry to say, this time was so very disappointing. Our waitress had no knowledge of the menu, the food was mediocre at best, several items were missing from each dish that was ordered. (Dessert was joke, im positive I could have gotten better food at McDonalds.) The best thing I can say is that the kept our water glasses full.

Big birthday followed by 2CELLOS concert. First time at Cosmos, originally chosen because of it’s good ratings, close proximity to Target Center. However, it turned out to be a fabulous choice for Cosmos independent of the concert venue. The four of us really enjoyed the food and the service, the warm ambiance was an enhancement. Looking forward to a return visit.

Went here for Valentine's day, took me a while to write this review but it needed to be said. OVERPRICED prixe fix menu. Didn't know we only had one option for food when we made the reservation, and by the time we got seated we realized we had no choice. We were starving so didn't want to leave, where else could we go on Valentines day?

Food could have been a LOT better for what we paid. Don't come here unless you are just getting drinks. There are many, many decent to excellent restaurants in Minneapolis where you can get better quality food for less money than this. Totally NOT worth the money.

We went there for the Xmas buffet on Dec 25. I was rather late looking for a Xmas day restaurant so there weren't many options left. My husband prefers buffets for the options. So we picked Cosmos. Yes it was a buffet with some more upscale options like shrimp and cab legs ( small) but otherwise rather limited. They obviously chose to put out out just enough for the number of reservations they had for that seating. I was rather slow so there wasb't much left of some items and I noticed items were not replenished. The mini desserts were quite good bu quickly got picked over so there wasn't much left. Oerall too pricey for $65/per for what was there.

The staff was welcoming and friendly

The food was very pedestrian

There was a consistent shortage of turkey - which is troublesome on Thanksgiving

Beautiful facility- perhaps the buffet format is not a forte

The food was delicious and an enticing buffet for Thanksgiving. A tasty assortment of food. Service was okay. The value for the meal was very good. It was quiet so we could have a nice family conversation. The best part of the meal was table spacing. We weren't crowded and bumpy chairs with the next table.

My boyfriend and I went for his 29th birthday, and the restaurant was completely dead. No one was at the host stand, just 3-4 people were sitting at the bar. I finally walked around and the bartender stopped me, and I said I had a reservation. Thankfully there was one other table of 6 girls on a bachelorette party so we weren't the only ones, but the ambiance wasn't what I was expecting.

Thankfully, the delectable food and impeccable service made up for the lacking milieu. We also got to try two appetizers that weren't on the menu for free! Despite the odd beginning, we truly enjoyed our time, got to talk to the chef, had delicious drinks, and will be back. They apparently have some mushroom dinner that you purchase tickets for, and I'd love to go to that.

Cosmos restaurant at The Loews Hotel and Resorts Minneapolis is accommodating. Whether you choose multi course tasting menu paired with wines ala carte or a vegetarian with dietary needs Cosmos will step up to the challenge. Ask for the Chef's Table and Executive Chef Tim Fischer will serve you the ultimate dinning experience at Cosmos.

This was very disappointing! We were guests of the Loew's, celebrating a birthday and anniversary. We arrived at our reservation time only to discover that the restaurant was closed for the night. The host yammered on about nonsense before I finally asked her to just spit it out, were we going to dine with you or not?! We were unable to locate another establishment that would take us on such short notice-I will NOT return. Horrible customer service! Why wouldn't you have bothered to call your guests to alert them, then all of the headache could have been avoided!!!

The manager did his best to makeup for any short-comings, but it was truly one of the worst dining experiences. They were out of multiple items offered on the menu, our drinks took a ridiculously long time, and my husband sent food back to the kitchen for the first time EVER. Our plates clearly sat under heat lamps for enough time to cook MR steak to a brick and the demi glaze into a glue. Could be a really cool place to eat but we won’t be back again to give it another run.

Fantastic food! My only complaint is that the waiter had literally no clue what was on the menu which was odd- every time I asked him about a meal he picked up my menu and read off of it.

I absolutely love this restaurant. My wife and I checked it out for Valentine's Day a couple years back and it was the best meal I've ever eaten. In fact, I was a little wary that when we came back, it wouldn't live up to our memories - but it did. Every aspect of the meal was fantastic.

Valentine dinner was a gross disappointment. Mixed up service; no delivery of the wine pairings with each course; Overly salty food; Inattentive service. 3 successive errors on the final bill. THis restaurant is way past mediocre and should be avoided until new management or some major change is completed and proven.
What a waste of $$.

The service was unfriendly and incredibly slow. It took 30 minutes before the waitress came for our drink orders and for some reason we were only given food menus. This caused another 15 minute ordering delay.

They bought out the salads and there was a 20 minute delay before the soup was brought out. We finally tracked down the waitress who told us "it is coming". When you are paying $28 for an entree and another $10 for soup or salad, you should not be told to be patient!

Why is it that there only seems to be a wait when the dining room is mostly empty? The only people I would recommend Cosmos to are people desperate for a last minute reservation and then sit at the bar and eat an appetizer. The food was tiny and mediocre - but much better than the service.

I had dinner there on one occasion and breakfast buffet on another. The ambiance, decor and service are outstanding. The dinner menu was innovative and prepared well. The breakfast buffet was underwhelming, limited, and overpriced. Imagine a breakfast buffet without scrambled eggs and you'll begin to understand my indifference.
