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.

The buffet was very, very good. Comes with made to order omelette, we declined the omelette.
But there was plenty of food. Everything about this meal was excellent. Hats off to our waiter Daniel, we arrived just in time to witness something, not going to say what, But Daniel handled it extremely well. Yep its a little pricey, But in my honest opinion, its so worth it.

YES, YES, YES. Started out with Shrimp cocktail. Then received sushi on a cucumber slice, with a few other things on top. I had the Chicken Wild rice soup(Best soup ever tasted). Then comes the Palette cleanser. Main coarse was Beef Tenderloin medium rare as suggested. With our check we received a raspberry tort ball, it must have a little cream cheese in it because my wife didn't like it, LUCKY for me.

This was one of the best meals I have ever eaten

Nice looking place with good service and reasonable prices, but there were only 4 entrees on the menu! We had the chicken and the salmon, and they were both very good, but I had my heart set on the scallops that were listed in the online menu and also featured on a poster in the elevator. I expected more choices. On the positive side, the place was nearly empty, so getting a reservation and evening changing it was easy. We also thought the little extras appetizers they treated us to were very fun. Even the tea was served in exotic little pyramids. A classy place to eat, if you don't need a lot of choices.

We went for Mother's Day brunch. The array of food choices were wonderful. Every dish was prepared well, tasted good, and the service was top-notch. Ever since the Airport Hilton stopped having its special brunch on Mother's Day, we've been looking for a replacement. The one at Cosmos was equally as delightful. Not as many food choices at the Hilton used to have, but certainly equal or better in quality and taste. I truly hope Cosmos continues offering special brunches like this for other occasions - e.g. Easter, Father's Day, and any other occasion they can think of. Great job and a superb buffet.

We had brunch at Cosmos for Mother's Day. Overall, the food was just so-so. The eggs benedict were overcooked (yet not warm), the onions in the spinach salad were insanely vineger-y, etc. The service wasn't great, either. The host who sat us at our table felt compelled, for some reason, to announce how much the brunch cost for each person. Then he took the knives from my children's place settings without asking. Even though my kids are too young for knives themselves, it would have been nice to not have to use my own on their meals so that all my food didn't have to taste like maple syrup. We also had to ask a different waiter for water, as we didn't see our guy much.

I love this restaurant. The food is stellar. Menu offers an excellent variety of food for the gourmet to the more grounded fare. Burger is THE best while the Crispy Skin Salmon and Mushroom Risotto--MWAH. It is not overcrowded, which is not so good for the bottom line but wonderful if you enjoy conversation during dinner!
