We had great service. The food was good. I’d say the roast potatoes were excellent as were the hummus and pita. Saganaki was good. The Greek salad had undetectable green pepper (didn’t see any at all). It also had lettuce, which I do not prefer. The lamb was not a generous portion and was a bit tough.

Excellent food and service!!! A very cute little place.. could use some sprucing up , maybe some Greek decor.. olive trees?? That might help also with the noise level. Overall it was great.

The service was excellent - they took care of our every need and were very attentive even though the place was hopping. The food was delicious - especially the saganaki, calamari, dolmathes, lamb & lemon potatoes. We were so full we had to take the baklava to go and it still tasted fantastic the next morning. No question, our favourite Greek restaurant in the city!!

Cosmos Greek Kitchen, one of our favourite Greek restaurants, is back on 124 Street, and in a great way! Lovely, cozy atmosphere, and the food - as in the past - is delicious and plentiful! The cheese saganaki - flamed right at our table - was the best we have had in a long time. The lamb chops were tender, and perfectly cooked! The wine we ordered was a great choice - an Italian white wine - a pinot grigio! And the chocolate walnut dessert - yummy; not too sweet and a nice size portion! The rest of our party had the platter for 4 and it was far and enough for them all (along with some lovely leftovers to take home). Service was superb! The owner came out and talked with us, and made some useful suggestions regarding the amount of food to order, and even added some extra portions onto the appetizers so the whole group could partake in all of them! The server, although new, was efficient and very friendly! We never felt rushed at all, and spent nearly 2-1/2 hours eating, drinking, talking and laughing! We were a group of 6 adults, and all of us came away from our very leisurely meal happy, extremely satisfied and well fed. We had a great evening! Thanks Cosmos - we are glad you are back and look forward to many more happy meals at your establishment!

Staff very accommodating, requested belly dancer and breaking dishes day of our reservation after finding out that they do not do this every Friday and Saturday. They came through and went above and beyond with the quality of service. Brought in a birthday cake which they served for us. Always a fun evening at this establishment. All 10 of us totally enjoyed our evening and can't wait to do it again. Thanks again to all staff.

COD was swimming in tomato sauce, was not expecting that based on the description of grilled fish, but was pretty tasty. The lamb was a big disappointment though, very dry, more like leftovers to be honest. The lamb should have been spectacular, but tonight it was not worth the money, not even close.
The room also has lots its character and ambience, the workmanship for the Reno was done poorly, the bar however was done better.
I’ve enjoyed cosmos over the many years, but it’s not like it used to be.
Overall, not worth the $170 I paid tonight for 4 people and a couple of glasses of wine.
Service was pretty good.

Service initially was good, but we waited some time for our bill to arrive. The food was very tasty and hot. It's the first time I've received hot water when I asked for water with lemon in a restaurant. I found it a refreshing change. Price was ok but for an item that was the restaurant's special, it wasn't that low a cost meal.

This was our favourite for many years, so we were very happy when it returned. We took friends to Cosmos a couple weeks ago, very good all around. Food, service, all top notch. This time, not so much. The service was fair to poor and so was the food, not sure what changed in two weeks, but it may be some time before going back.

Lovely impromptu dinner with friends. We felt the need for a casual Greek meal and found Cosmos to fit the bill. The restaurant was not busy but we were taken to our choice of table and we selected a window seat. My husband and friend chose souvlaki and I opted for calamari and tzakiki with pita. We shared the fried cheese appetizer.
I found the meal somewhat more bland that my previous experience with Greek food, but while the food could have used more spices and herbs, it was tasty.
The menu is extensive so I was challenged by narrowing down to a reasonable plate of food. Although we did not order dessert, we were brought a special complimentary plate of dessert tidbits, which we thoroughly enjoyed. I found the wine list impressive for a neighbourhood restaurant.

Great service - calamari was absolutely cooked perfect
Cosmos platter for dinner was a great deal - platter was for 4 but could have been for 5
Order wine when bottles are 1/2 price - appreciate that it could be any wine on the menu

Firstly the service is amazing - they take a lot of pride in their food and make sure everyone is happy (and full!). The food is delicious - portions are large and at your table fairly quickly. The amount of food you get for what you pay is also very good - you’ll be taking home leftovers guaranteed. Great friendly spot with terrific food - what else do you need?

Cosmos was excellent! Overall the food was tasty and portion size was good. Everyone in our party was happy with their meals. Service was a bit slow as there was just one server on the floor for a busy Valentines. But I definitely would recommend this Greek family restaurant to everyone.
