Exceptional in every way. We’ve been to their Mexico City restaurant and liked this better. However, be prepared to empty the piggy bank. We’ve eaten at exceptional restaurants around the world and never paid $65 for a piece of fish!

Have enjoyed this restaurant in the past. Our meal this week was ordinary and frankly disappointing. Very expensive for average food. We won’t be returning any time soon

This is the first time I'd been to Cosme for dinner and the noise is deafening. The music is WAY too loud to conduct a proper conversation. I was about to leave with my guest when suddenly the maitre D found a "quieter" table in a corner (just a tiny bit quieter but I appreciated his gesture).
Also, the bar stools are too to high I was literally UNABLE to sit on one. This is the first time this has ever happened to me in my life. Who was the decorator who assumed all clients would be over 6 feet tall!
Finally, while the food is divine, I think the fancy cocktails are a bit too complicated. One I tried was undrinkable.
And I think the prices are too high.

The dishes are well balance and well thought out. Outstanding food and service overall. Nothing short of expectation for one of the world's top 50 best restaurant. The only thing that is hard to swallow is the price.

Very good good, everything we had. Also very good service. The only complaint is the wine list. No American wines at all! Also a bit too heavy on bio/natural wines. A bit too noisy for conversation.

Sitting next to the service doors lead to occasional bumps from busboys.
I loved the ambiance of the original Pojul and hoped for a similar couture experience.
As an Architect, I wished it felt more special.

Cosme lived up to the rave reviews, and more. Service was outstanding, wonderfully creative menu. Please bottle those sauces... the green mole and sesame chili were incomparable. On par with Ottolenghi's ROVI in London.

The food was not as good as it once was, and frankly was under-seasoned. The shrimp tostadas clearly were very fresh but were overdressed with mayo and under salted. Spice levels were set to an american 2/10. Mushroom quesadilla was bad, salsa bland. Too expensive for food that lacked conviction in flavor or substance.

My first time at Cosme on my short trip to NYC. Lunch was amazing! The thoughtful preparation and perfect balance of spices made for a unique and memorable meal. I enjoyed the seafood sea buckthorn ceviche with delicate blue corn tostada, soft shell crab with yellow mole and husk merengue corn mousse.
I look forward to dining at Cosme again on my next trip to NYC.

Birthday dinner for my so. Who has travelled in Mexico and studied different regional cuisine
It was amazing
The duck was a warm, inviting wonderful dish to share and the mole is like an adult chocolate sauce.
We will be back

This place was amazing. The flavors and dishes are well deserved of the ranking. The service was friendly and prompt. I'll need more characters and pages to describe the food. Innovative and executed perfectly. The team working the kitchen is amazing.

Every bite was excellent! We skipped the recommended “3 plates per person” suggestion since would have been a LOT. With four plates plus corn mousse for dessert, we had plenty. The service was extremely attentive, and nice amount of space between tables for ambiance. The food was like nothing we’ve had before!

Apparently after you make a reservation is very complicate to call if you’re late and may lose your table. It may take around 15-20 min to order a single drink. The food is awesome though.

Lots of stylish severs, but very impersonal. It was definitely a diverse, loud and happy crowd. Portions were small...flavors unique and big. Over-order and share. The duck carnitas and corn meringue dessert should not be missed. It’s so trendy that the objective seems to be to move as many people as possible through the tables. Value is in the flavors not the “dear”
contents or ambiance...at the end of the rushed evening you realize you’ve paid a premium for the “Cosme” mystique. Either they’ll figure out how to make it an enjoyable social and dining experience or they’ll be peddling frozen entrees at Trader Joe’s in the not too distant future.

This restaurant shows how versatile the Mexican food can be. This is the first True HIGH END Mexican restaurant that includes Mexican wines in the menu and these are also of an excellent quality. The best example that Mexican does not mean cheap or classless. Congratulations to Chef Olvera

Excellent meal, although the menu is a bit confusing. The server explained it to us as "tapas-style" which was sort of true for the first and second courses, but the third (main) course was really pretty full-sized dishes. All that is to say, we left way too full and didn't even finish our dessert! But if that's the worst I have to say about a restaurant, it was a pretty great meal.

Great service and ambiance. Food is mostly good, very creative and innovative but has increasingly become less of a good value over the years.
