Always takes a while to get drinks because the bar is downstairs. Food is fantastic
Always tasty food.
Not busy on our visit night, but service was very slow. Couple next to us came in after we ordered, placed their order, ate and paid before we ever got our entrees.
Have been going here for years. Usually is amazing. Was in town for graduation and was excited to be able to stop in. We were in a bit of a hurry and it took way too long to get even out starters. I got the risotto and it had no flavor at all. I was totally bummed. Maybe an off night.
As always, Cosmos offers an excellent eclectic menu that is prepared very well. Rack of Lamb, Mahi Fish Tacos and Lasagna were all eaten in our group and all were very pleased. Highly recommend.
The downstairs bar is R"energetic", but the upstairs dining is quiet & relaxing. Nice wine selection.
We have a weekend property near Kalamazoo and are always looking for good restaurants in the area. We remembered Cosmos Cucina and were able to obtain a reservation through Open Table. Our waiter was very attentive.
We had a splendid meal, but the quality of the food was let down by the service - for example, we waited for nearly an hour for a bottle of wine to be brought, and in the end had to retrieve it ourselves. The place was busy, yes - but not THAT busy. But if they can get this right, the place is a winner.
Overall nice experience. Just had to wait longer than expected for our food.
The menu/food quality at Cosmos is not what is was; however, another evening experience needed to make a true judgement...
O'Duffy's Pub, downstairs of Cosmos, remains a regular for an after work stop.
Wife and I went to WMU, used to go to the Troubadour - last time we were there 30+ years ago. Cosmos is a nice place. Kept some of the original ambiance of the Troubadour. There is a bar downstairs which is cool The fact that Cosmos is at the top of a fairly steep staircase must limit customers to those able to climb not exactly universal design. The food was good, but kind of pricey. I lived in big cities, a $14 burger is pretty high end, but that said the Spinach Feta burger was great and my wife had the Black Bean burger which was also good. The place was good. Happy we went. We will be back... maybe a little sooner than the next 30 years.
Our waitress was attentive, busy with other customers but responsive to our request to be finished by 7:00 pm. Our reservation was for 6:00 pm. We arrived a few minutes early and were seated immediately. She did a great job keeping things moving in a gracious manner. A malfunctioning credit card machine or service nearly tripped us up but she quickly moved to another machine and completed the transaction.
I love the ambiance but the service was really bad. Sat there for 15 minutes before I asked them to take my order.
I hate to write a negative review on a favorite place but...Valentines Day and we waited a half hour for our dinner? And it was lukewarm? Come on...it wasn't even busy! Several tables empty and you your cook staff is too busy to get the food out on time? There was an elderly couple next to us that waited an hour for their food! They were not happy. Once our food arrived, it was delicious and the tenderloin was perfectly done...but I could barely call it warm. Sad. So do I gamble on driving over 30 minutes to get to this place again? I'm not sure.
We have eaten at Cosmos many times. This was a reservation we made for Valentine's Day dinner. We arrived and were seated, along with about eight other couples, downstairs in O-Duffy's Bar, not upstairs in Cosmos' dining room. This was not mentioned on Open Table when we made our reservation. Poor oversight. People from off the street were coming in and out and enjoying their time at the bar, and music was playing. The setting was not romantic, and the server we had, while very pleasant, was inattentive, touching the tables around us about three times as much as us. Our appetizers were served about 1 minute before our dinner, so dinner was not hot when we got to it. The food was fabulous, as always! Great restaurant, just not for a romantic dinner! We will choose a different restaurant next year for this dinner.
Everything was really good. We try to go at least once a month or so. We finally found time away from kids valentine day. wish they had more of their regular menu items that day.
The food was great. The presentation was beautiful.
This restaurant has a long standing problem with service. The waitstaff does not seem to work together. There was 1 waitress from 5pm to 5:30 pm when 4 others arrived. Whether the first waitress was negligent in requesting assistance with the 5 tables already seated or the other waitresses were blind to the fact that she was covering this load alone makes no difference. These people should be working as a team!
Dinner before a seeing a musical!
We didn't actually get to go to Cosmos Cucina because it was closed even though we were able to make a reservation for it on OpenTable. I would recommend it to others due to past experiences but this experience was very disappointing.
This is my favorite special night out place to dine. The food is outstanding and I am never disappointed. I am a fairly good cook myself and I like to search out items at any restaurant and on any menu that I wouldn't prepare myself. I never tire of the menu as it gets updated and there are always specials and new items to try. I love the old standby's too and the Duck is my favorite. It makes my mouth water just thinking of it. The portions are just right. The food is beautifully prepared and presented. It is healthy and you feel good enjoying every bite.
