Cosme es un lugar excepcional. La experiencia fue grata al llegar, mi reservación estaba lista y pasamos de inmediato a nuestra mesa, la iluminación es agradable y la música de fondo a un nivel suficiente para conversar sin problemas.

La coctelería es fresca y novedosa con buenas combinaciones, y el menú es una sorpresa muy grata. Todos los platillos estaban presentados de forma perfecta y la calidad no deja nada que desear. El precio está totalmente justificado y es una experiencia que recomiendo a cualquiera que visite Nueva York.

Amazing food and great cocktails! Obviously pricey, but great for a special occasion or tech bring power lunch. The only letdown was the shisito mole, which was sort of just a $29 bowl of leaves and tasteless. Everything else was sublime.

The ambience was great and the food quite delicious - some of the dishes were extremely innovative while others felt short of expectations. What really took away from the experience was our waiter who was impatient and was very shorthanded and abrupt. He poorly listened to our order over loud ambience and in turn messed up our order and failed to take credit for that.

The restaurant was packed and so the voice was loud. While the food was good, it’s not worth the price point. All appetizers were between $20-$40. They suggested ordering 4-5 items for two people. The duck was definitely phenomenal and with the $90 but the rest wasn’t.

I’ve been to Pujol in Mexico City, so I was super excited to try Cosme. Food was delicious! Mole was disappointing (when comparing to the one in Mexico City). Razor clams were amazing, as was the corn pizza with mushrooms. Not a lot of space to get a drink at the bar (people eat there too) so you fee awkward getting a drink when waiting for your table. Waiter could have been more attentive and wished he explained parts of the dishes, he didn’t say anything and we had to ask many questions. Bathrooms were gross and smelled bad. The food saved this overall experience, so good.

We had high expectations to try contemporary Mexican food at Cosme but the result was awful. The appetizers were highly expensive with a poor presentation. The mole and tatemado plates were better but closing with the lamb was the worst part of the night. I won’t recommend the restaurant, it’s not worth the visit!

I have been wanting to go to this restaurant for awhile and invited friends to go on a weeknight. I was truly embarrassed by the prices. The food was very good, but not worth the price. We were all surprised when one of our entrees was a plate of mole sauce. I guess we didn't read the menu closely enough, but I would not consider a plate of mole sauce an entree under any circumstance. The carnitas were delicious, but $92 was excessive. The ceviche was three small pieces. We will not be back. There are too many great restaurants to have to spend that much.

2nd visit after incredible first experience. Duck carnitas and the cobia app we’re amazing. Service was great and all recommendations were well received and enjoyed except the mole. Overpriced app served as an entree without a protein and very bitter greens. Server was quick to respond with a positive solution for the table. Would definitely go back with friends or take clients again!

The food is undoubtedly interesting and good, but not memorable. There is care taken with the raw ingredients. Everything is very expensive for what you get, and the price doesn't feel justified. I liked the cobia al pastor. Portions are small, all supposedly for sharing, but how one shares a small mound of abalone on a brittle cracker is beyond me. The restaurant is very loud, a bit non-descript, and the chairs are not comfortable. Cosme is #40 on the 2017 Restaurant Magazine list of 50 best restaurants in the world, which is certainly a strong negative commentary on the quality of that list, especially when you consider that Astrance is #46.

Creative food in a lovely setting - all the better to enjoy the unique flavors on offer at Cosme. Loved the use of foraged greens- they added a special piquancy to the sauces and even the guacamole! Space between tables enabled us to have a good conversation over dinner....so the evening was a complete success!

I was expecting to be "wowed" by the food given other reviews. The food was good, but not great. The duck carnitas for $94 was very greasy but tasty. It would have been better if most of the fat has been cooked out of the skin. The kabocha squash tamal had a delicious sauce, but the tamal itself was mealy and lacked texture. The Kampachi was 3 small, thin slices of raw fish with cucumber on top with a sauce that overwhelmed the fish itself. Meh! Portions were very small and prices very high. I'd skip it.

Las hostess no nos dieron buen servicio porque no querían juntarnos 2 mesas para juntar 2 reservaciones de 2 personas......que no se podia cuando el lugar todavía estaba vacío. Hasta que el mesero nos ayudo y le dijo cuales mesas asignarnos.
Ademas para que nos trajeran nuestros abrigos al final esperamos como 7 minutos...muy mal

Underwhelming. The Herb guacamole was soooo underwhelming. The Tlayuda was like a flatbread pizza with no direction. Unreal how poor that was. Cobia was pretty good, as was the flatiron steak.

Cocktails were great.

Overall: disappointing

I had wanted to try Cosme for a while, so I was really excited to finally have a chance to go and had read a lot of reviews online about what to try. However, I found myself overall fairly disappointed with the quality of the food. While everything was perfectly edible, it was nothing special. Had it been a third of the price, I would have felt it was an adequate if not spectacular meal. Given the hype and price point, I expected far more. I've had carnitas that were equally tasty for $4 from a roadside taco stand. I was especially disappointed in the lack of interesting flavors or complexity. So, in all, not a bad meal, but certainly not worth the price and disappointing given the reputation and price.

For some reason, during our one and half hour meal, we must have the servers come to us a dozen times asking us to clear our plates even though we were still picking.
Serving size is very small and unimpressive.
