What Insiders Are Saying
Cosme is an upscale Mexican restaurant in Flatiron that’s much more approachable than it appears to be.
The food was good but small portions and very expensive. It did not feel like a restaurant to have a meal but a place to experiment with.
Good Mexican food with a twist i would say. Delicious and tasty.
On time service, good wine pairing options. Had the best Margarita and the Guacomole. Will go again for sure.
Portion is way too small
The food and service were ok for the price, too expensive for the quality.
Food was excellent. I don't mind spending money on good food and good experiences, but the amount of food for the price was ridiculous. Cool scene, great service, good cocktails!
The mole tasted burned, but our waiter was kind and removed it from our bill. Overall, prices were outrageous and not worth it. You're much better off spending your money at a Daniel Boulud restaurant.
Always a great dining experience
Another fabulous meal at Cosme. Quote from my guest accurately summarizes “I’ve had hundreds of nice meals in New York. Rarely are they this memorable however”.
Reservation process ridiculous they take credit card but if you need to change they make you call but they have one line so you get a busy signal (in this day and age). They say they don’t use OpenTable but will take your credit card via. Host people very rude. They will not seat you even if you are 1 person short and then push you to the bar or say they need the table back in an hour really? That one seat is gone? Food is good but not unbelievable and not for 3
Plates at $90 per person. My party of 5 left hungry and wanted to hit a taco truck. Overhyped and over priced for rude check in which put me in a bad mood for the meal.
Food is always excellent. So innovative, creative, and flavorful. Cocktails are also very good. Service is attentive and ambiance is lovely, warm, and comfortable. The menu changes, so there's always something new, which is exciting and fun. The only snag (for me) is that it's written in simple phrases but mostly in Spanish, so you have to ask what each word means, which I find time-consuming every time. Don't leave without having the meringue, which is always on the menu. This time we had mexican chocolate, too, and it was delicious.
The food was excellent. We shared a number of dishes and I'd highly recommend doing that to enjoy the diverse tastes available on the menu. I plan on going back soon.
Spectacular food. Excellent service. Informal environment.
Ingredients are pristine, beautifully prepared, elegantly presented. Flavor profiles might benefit from a stronger point of view, but if that point of view is the artistic presentation of pure component flavors, it’s a big success. Prices are very dear, and should be backed off 10-15% especially at lunch.
Loud, expensive, non-existent service @TheDailyServer.
For shared plates food portions were sized for 1 person , not shareable and prices were extremely high for the portion size . I would not go back
2nd time and it always underwhelms me even though the reviews are so great.
Great food in hip, casual environment.
The place is hot- the food is not. Short detour to Mexico City on the way to the black hole, just photographed this week. Made me long for those large portions at the last nouvelle cuisine restaurant I ate at. Unfortunately I recognized very little of what I was served. Just wish that I could have gotten a better handle on what was going on there...
Food was outstanding - incredibly flavorful. And excellent drinks (margaritas). However, service was mediocre to bad - hard to get info on dishes, and dishes were repeatedly removed before finished. I’m not a foodie, but I have friends who are: they all said that if you adjust for portion size, this is possible the most expensive restaurant in New York. We left after 200 / person in search of food as we were hungry.
I was very excited to go try Cosme because it was a restaurant owned by Enrique Olivera, a renowned Mexican chef that I follow up on his activity very often. However when I tried some of the plates on the menu, I was not impressed. It may be because I have been to Mexico many times and I have tried the best authentic Mexican food. However I believe if he is willing to put a crab infladita (starter) at $32 then I should have received something more than what was on my plate. The aguachile I has was very good but also very simple. Once we got to the main courses I was a lot more excited because we tried his famous duck carnitas, lamb tacos and glazed veal chop. The duck carnitas was very good but it does have a pricey tag with it $90. The veal chop was a great dish and so were the the lamb tacos, but I guess nothing blew me away. The service wasn’t the best, I felt like the waiters needed to know a little bit more how to explain the plates. I enjoyed talking with the sommelier, he gave good advice on the wine pairing .
Amazing food. Beautifully done. Great rendition to Mexican good.
This neighborhood gem is a go to for us as often as we can make it happen.
The Duck Carnitas are to die for and they definitely showed us a lot of love this past Saturday night.
Best staff and we always end up striking up a nice conversation with the neighboring diners because everyone is always in such a great mood to be here.
So glad we live nearby!
Do NOT miss the corn meringue
Fantastic. 97% level of the best food in CDMX with it's own personality. Depth of flavor. Great service. One of my fav spots in NYC.
Had to wait for 15 minutes to get my table
Costoso! Yo estaba entusiasmada de ir por ser el restaurante de Enrique Olvera. La comida no fue nada por lo que volveria y el precio fue ridiculo! Los tacos mas costosos de mi vida!
On the pricier side but really good high end Mexican food.
Deliciosa toda la comida y el personal demasiado amable con nosotras. Nos encantó la tostadita de cangrejo, las carnitas de pato... todo! Súper recomendado para una buena noche en NYC.
Soooooo expensive and ridiculously tiny portions. Spent $500 for 4 people and left still hungry. Overhyped—would not go back
We found the food excellent, BUT except for the $49 single-serving of duck carnitas. You are likely to leave Cosme still hungry even after spending $65 for lunch! For dessert do try the Husk meringue with corn mousse. BTW duck carnitas (3 servings) was only $59 four years ago. Today it is $89!
Nice food but overpriced for what you get. Portions are way too small
It's a nice place with delicious food, but fabulously overrated and extremely expensive.
I love Cosme! It's incredible every time. The only thing that rivals the wonderful food is the service of the staff. I especially love and recommend the sweet corn tlayuda and lamb belly tacos!
Food was tasteless.....the best part was the avocado (hard to get this wrong) and the chilli sauce!!!!!!@
The table that I got was incredibly uncomfortable and dirty. Definitively something that I wouldn't expect on a restaurant from this caliber, we were basically sharing the table with the people sitting next to us, I couldn't even focus on my own conversation.
The dishes were unimpressive, nothing truly Mexican about the flavors, super small portions and very very expensive. I was only happy with the duck carnitas. Cocktails were good.
Incredibly overpriced for what it was. Definitely get the duck carnitas and the goat tacos
I think it is overrated. Service was very poor, the people who were seating us were confused several times if they will sit us in the next 5 or 15 minutes. Also menu is very limited . It is not Mexican- as they say it is fusion. Nothing we ate left a memory in our palate. Please note i traveled all around the world and tasted from the most authentic food to fusion. Have been in many restaurants from the most local to the fanciest. So Cosme does not worth it, unless you are at your 20s and want to go somewhere what they call "hip"..
Great food and service. Nice that we could hear ourselves during lunch.
