What Insiders Are Saying
Cosme is an upscale Mexican restaurant in Flatiron that’s much more approachable than it appears to be.
Creative Mexican cuisine with a flair and meticulous preparation. Excellent cocktails as well.
The service was rushed.
The food was not as fine dinning as advertised.
The lamb belly dish was cold
La comida es espectacular, cada platillo es una sorpresa y el servicio es cálido y amable.
It was que sabor!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I ordered an item, highly recommended by the waiter, that I didn’t like at first bite. Neither did anyone at the table. I asked for a different dish and the waiter removed the yucky one. They charged me for both dishes. I would expect an upscale restaurant not to do that. I’ve eaten in a lot of upscale restaurants and they almost always want the patron to be happy with the food.
Not a great selection of vegetarian options, specially for the price. I understand that the portions can be small, but they can make it more filling that 6 leaves of lettuce delicately assembled! Service was great though.
From the moment we arrived we were pushed along. The waiter. Plus hardly speak English and didn’t explain the menu when asked. The wine prices were ridiculous.
We were highly recommended from friends in Australia: there’s no way I would recommend this restaurant.
Food was delicious but the space was full of annoying loud suits.
While we love Cosme, the menu has become too confined and it is simply too expensive for frequent visits. Once a year is enough!
Excellent food in a beautiful room. Service was attentive. Interesting menu.
Great dinner all around great service
Creative Mexican food...there’s a reason they are number 25 of the best restaurants in the world
The meal felt overpriced, especially the duck carnitas special. The atmosphere was uninspiring.
Service is going down, food still ok but not the same
Cosme feels hip and very dizzy and fun— the margaritas and mezcal conventions are fabulous—but none of the food captured my imagination.
Very good fusion mexican restaurant, definitely not tacos and burritos ! Guacamole was excellent as well as duck and the vanilla meringue. Music very loud.
Amazing food, excellent service.... Cosme is outstanding
Great ambiance, quiet, great service, delicious food
What a experience I look forward to joining you for dinner!! Well deserving of a ⭐️ Michelin WAKE UP!!
Uninspired - had such high hopes but left feeling disappointed with pretty much everything.
Cosme is a vibrant place. The food is exquisite - elegant and flavorful. The service is attentive, servers knowledgeable. Wine list is well thought out in its range. Recommend highly for getting together with friends, celebrating special occasions, or a date night. The food and experience is worth the price tag.
Excellent food, its tapas style Mexican cuisines. Everything we tried tasted great and the service was also good.
Huge disappointment. Service was very spotty. Example Somm went to get our bottle of wine. Returned with it open. Left again where we saw him taste the wine. Obviously it was bad, so seemed like a good catch right? He disappeared and finally returned with another bottle 15 min later! Not a word about it. Then left the decanter on the table and we poured all the wine ourselves. Same would happen with dishes. They would be dropped off with no explanation. They would drop of 2-3 dishes at a time. Many dishes have multiple parts so not sure which sauce goes with which dish etc. food was just so so. At the end of the meal our table was clear and wine glasses empty. After 10 min I finally had to raise my cc in the air to get the check. Also bench tables are very close together and every time they served a table on either side of us I was treated to bumps to my shoulder and chair. Went here since rated in top 50 in the world. Nowhere close to that experience. Had such high expectations and none of them were met.
Delicious small plates
The signature dishes didn't disappoint, would return
We decided to have brunch here upon first arriving to NYC and we were very impressed with the food and service. The bloody marys are to die for.
Great modern Mexican! Great service. Cobia collar was amazing. Fresh and vibrant flavors
Food is amazing an explosion of new tastes! Wish it was priced where as I would consider going more often than on special occasions. Having written that, I still look forward to my next visit.
Great service and wonderful food
Outstanding food: duck carnitas were best I’ve tried, fish appetizers were superb along with soft crab legs tempura. Dessert was corn meringue and excellent as well. Loved this place.
Best gourmet Mexican restaurant!
If you are looking for traditional Mexican food with a twist and most creative cuisine this is the place to go
Every dish is delitious!
Wow! Where do I start...the drinks were REALLY good. The food was actually funny!!! We ordered guacamole for I believe $17 for four people. It was an ice cream scoop amount in a bowl surrounded by four large tortilla chips. We literally started laughing. Two people ordered the steak. It was about 2-3 ounces sliced on a big plate. That’s it! It looked ridiculously funny. It came with a side of marinated tomatoes in a bowl. I am a vegetarian. The waiter pointed out the four to five options. I ordered the mole. I was served a large plate with seasoned semi cooked kale with mole sauce with a side of tortillas. The last guest got the tuna. It looked like an appetizer serving in a bowl. We ALL didn’t get it. The service was NOT good. The food tasted good except the mole was a joke. The mole sauce was delicious but not with kale. This is supposed to be a top restaurant in the country??? Unbelievable....
Don’t come here with any expectations beyond that of a run of the mill nice restaurant. The food was cold and dry, the server and staff while not rude, didn’t put in anything beyond the minimum effort and seemed like they were in a hurry to get us out of our table. Our experience here was emblematic of why fine dining and fancy restaurants get a bad rap. Instead of a deep passion for food, culture and serving guests - all we felt was we were in a restaurant that was mainly a business. Unfortunate, and I’m sure not reflective of what this chef was trying to portray. Maybe just a bad night at the restaurant. Hope others have a better experience.
La comida estaba rica pero nada espectacular! Los meseros demoraron un poco cuando pedíamos algo.
The most honest review you will see:
I have eaten at a lot of top restaurants in the world. With both the best cuisine, experiences, service etc..
My thoughts on Cosme. Overall 4.2-.5 stars, the food was very good although not "wow" or exquisite. Ambience and design was very nice, pleasant, and service was excellent. No prix fix menu or experience menu. Tapas style. The non-alcoholic drinks very limited, a little special but not out of this world as a "top" restaurant should have and feel. Alcoholic list wide selection, top shelfs and great reserves.
In my opinion, I do not know how the restaurant got to be #25 in the world in the famed 50 best list. It really should not belong there, the biggest positive in comparison is that its much cheaper than other restaurants in the list. If you're looking into it because you follow the top restaurant lists and are always looking for the experience save the money. If you're looking for just a dine out very solid choice.
Kampachi, sea buckthorn aguachile, turmeric, cucumber:
Think Octopus ceviche. Tender, very good "aguachile" juice.
Sweet corn tlayuda, king trumpet, cured NY cheddar, black truffles (to share):
Think thin flatbread with corn purée, fine vegetables. Was not surprised with the "cured NY cheddar" or the black truffle flavor.
Endive, ayocote beans, avocado, pine nuts:
Think a bed of white bean purée. Fresh endive leafs on top with avocado and pine nuts. Very well elaborated and the combination was balanced with a touch of crunchy.
Duck carnitas, onions, radishes, cilantro (to share):
Most expensive plate they got and they claim to be their signature ($94). A lot of meat, tender duck. Good grease on the skin although a little on the thicker side and not the style is more of asado soft and not crunchy Beijing. Very good duck meat taste itself but maybe missing some preparation flavor.
Highlight, Merengue dessert! Their signature dessert merengue combined with a corn and chantillí type creme.
The food at Cosme continues to be excellent. Every course, every bite. But the noise level is too much for almost any conversation even at a not overly crowded lunch. Would go back much more often if the room were more quiet.
One of our favorites. Do yourself a favor, go with a group and order everything on the menu!!
As a proud mexican, it's a treasure to have this amazing food in NY, we travel from Boston to eat in Cosme.
One of the most stand-out meals I have had in a very long time. Beautiful balance of flavour, spice and creativity, and a spectacular wine list with a great sommelier. Friendly, but professional, service too!
Some dishes were outstanding some were pretty average. Lacks consistency.
