Pleasant surroundings, sushi happy hour, cosmopolitans or wine for $6. There is no downside! The decor is modern, the view of the gondola is interesting, wait staff attentive, food supurb. Splurge $3 for the special bottles of still or sparking Nordaq water, it tastes simply amazing!

I visited Cosmo again a few nights ago and they never cease to amaze. The service is always spot on, the food masterfully presented and the price fair for the experience. We saw guests get up because a glass of wine was $15 but in the resort that is to be expected. The sushi is some of my favorite. We... More

My husband had the chopped salad and ahi tuna special and enjoyed both as well.... They do have a children's menu which was a nice surprise, we were a... More

Overall outstanding dining experience. The kids were able to order off the "young adult menu." The food on both the adult and kids menu was outstanding. The service was outstanding as well.

I dined here with my son over Memorial weekend. Food was good. When it came time to pay the bill, the waitress accidentally ran my credit card for the check on another table (in the amount of $250+). It took me 3 phone calls to get it straightened out - and didn't get that money back into my account for... More

Dear Julie, Please accept my sincere apology for this gross error and undue hardship to you. We are so truly sorry. We had just instituted a new POS system and it has been a bit difficult for the staff. We would like to pay your overdraft fees. Please call the restaurant so that we can make this right for you....

Creative delicious food! The sashimi plates were to die for. Duck with ramen was unique in its combination of flavores and very light. Great wine list too!
