We found this on the internet. It's tucked next to Golds Gym. Food was very good ... not a HUGE selection but what they have is good. It's very European. I'd definitely suggest getting a reservation if you're eating at the standard meal time (we went for an early dinner). Service was very good.

What an unexpectedly delightful place! Do not let the strip mall location put you off. Very experienced and knowledgeable friends recommended this family-run restaurant. So we expected it would be good. It was. With our no advance reservations and a table for 6 needed to accommodate us, the staff were very sweet and efficient to pull together two smaller tables....

You'd be surprised that a restaurant in a strip mall with four other stores (one of them a gym) would be so awesome. We spent a week in Alexandria and went here twice and both times the food and service were excellent. Would highly recommend stopping at this gem of a restaurant.

I drove by The Cosmopolitan countless times and did not realize it was there until some friends took me & my husband. Wow! I loved their spatzele & schnitzel. The beer selection was first rate, and the service was friendly and capable. I didn't have dessert, but there's a Sweet Frog next door!

We had been wanting to try this place for awhile, and we finally were able to go in for lunch. The ambiance was unexpectedly nice, for being in a strip mall next to Gold's Gym. They have reserved parking for patrons of the restaurant so we were able to snag one of those. However, there is ample parking. We immediately... More

We live very close to the Cosmopolitan and enjoy visiting. I've had lunch with girlfriends and dinner with family there. It's always a good experience. They are very friendly, courteous and go out of their way to make sure your dining experience is good. I particularly like their Bosnian Burger. It's huge and I usually take half of it home.... More

Went out with another couple. Food was wonderful, including the crepes desert. Had leftovers to take home.

My daughter & son-in-law offered to take me out for Mother's Day and I decided to try a new place. This was ranked #3 out of over 600 in Alexandria. It's located in a shopping mall so I figured correctly parking would not be a problem. It fondly reminded us of our time in Europe. Everyone was friendly and the... More

I decided that I wanted to go to Cosmopolitan after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor. It was pretty easy to find based on the comments by others. There are several parking spaces reserved for the restaurant's customers. There were 4 people in our party, my husband and myself, our teenage daughter, and our friend. We arrived about 5 on a...

Read about Cosmopolitan in Trip Advisor and convinced another couple (life long friends) who also enjoy fine dining to give the place a try. We dined there on May 3, 2014 on a Saturday evening. Walked in without a reservation on a Saturday about 8:30 PM and the place was busy. We were given a table near the kitchen and... More
