Once a grand saloon in the thriving mining camp of Telluride, The Cosmopolitan is now home to the fresh, innovative creations of Chad Scothorn, who has received national attention and praise for his original, fresh approach to food preparation. Serving dinner nightly, this elegantly simple 80 seat restaurant is located in the newly remodeled luxurious Hotel Columbia at the base of the Gondola. Known locally as "the Cosmo", the custom cherry wood bar is the perfect place to unwind.

Reservations are hard to get, pricey, but worth it. Must have eclectic palate to appreciate the options

We walked over for happy hour after a day of skiing hard and it was terrific. In addition to tasty cosmos, we had 1/2 price sushi and each had a bowl of soup (very tast red pepper soup) and topped it off with homemade beignets. Fun, tasty and very affordable. We will be back.

This restaurant directly across from the base of the gondola in the old village is excellent. Good service food and wine. You won't be disappointed.

Shrimp and calamari was good, but you really have to search for the shrimp, but it's in there. The spider roll and spicy tuna roll were great. Go to happy hour and get the sushi for 1/2 price. The drinks were terrific. Service was excellent and the wait staff was quick and knowledgeable. A relaxing atmosphere.

My wife and I had a great meal at Cosmo. It was our first time in Telluride and our 3rd night out. The other two restaurants we dined at earlier were fine, but Cosmo was outstanding. So good, in fact, that we went back the next night as well. The food rivals any restaurant I have dined at anywhere, period.... More

Whose fault is it when you book a restaurant, turn up on time and then have to wait for almost an hour for a table? The management say it's the fault of their customers. We say it's the management's fault. Either way we were tired and annoyed by the time they finally sat us down. The menu looked interesting and... More

We returned to this beautiful restaurant last night for a get-together for 6 adult family members. There is a reason this restaurant is rated tops in Telluride. The service is fabulous, and the food outstanding. Our server, Casey, was helpful, friendly, and efficient. She was able to get all of our orders straight, including our splitting main courses, having salad... More
