Surprisingly Find!!

The location is an undistinguished strip mall. The restaurant is pleasant, well appointed, and welcoming. The food is Balkan, grilled meats/fish, salads, and full bar. For lunch we had chicken salad -- two skewers of nice sized chicken filets and a large green salad with a very nice light... read more

Lovely atmosphere, lovely staff. Privately owned and deliciously made. Fresh bread and kajmak. Can't go wrong eating here. Saturday night reservations are recommended.

Needed to find a place for dinner close to DC prior seeing a show there. Found the Cosmopolitan looking on Trip Advisor. Glad I did as we had a fabulous meal. Service was quick, efficient and friendly. We started out with the 7 Ćevapčići With Ajvar and Onion appetizer which is 7 German Sausages and onion with an eggplant based... More

We had gotten rave reviews from friends about this unassuming restaurant. But the hype did not live up to the experience. The service was friendly and appropriately timed but the food was simply average. The chicken schnitzel was tasteless as was my husband's wiener schnitzel. The french fries were the standard Sysco fare fries although my husband did say that... More

After recently returning from a vacation in Croatia, we have been reminiscing about the amazing meals and wines we enjoyed there. I searched TripAdvisor for Eastern European restaurants and found the Cosmopolitan Grill. We stopped by for lunch yesterday and were so pleased! My husband and I shared the mixed grill platter with chicken, steak, shrimp and cevapcici, and it... More

Jammed between a Gold's Gym and a Sweet Frog, the Cosmopolitan is unobtrusive but quite deceiving. The menu is wide and varied and outstanding in all respects. I've had several dishes there, among them a veal cutlet that overlapped the plate, perfectly prepared and delicious. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and ensure that all the diner's needs are met.

When we went there we was not looking for star food but having good and friendly atmosphere. The goulash soup Tate great and portion of main dishes are big . Difficult to finish all . Nice service and food came very fast . Still having lunch there but I m sure dessert and coffee will be great too .

We eat here once or twice a month and have been for years. We have never had a bad meal. The Bosnian dishes are unique. The German dishes are as tasty as any gasthaus in Germany. The salads are crisp and fresh. They have the best veal dishes in the metropolitan area. The owners are friendly. The service is usually... More
