This is one of the most wonderful food experiences I have ever had. Mark met us at the door and took us to our table and we were introduced to Tiff our server. The menu is incredible, a little bit of everything! The burratta salad was amazing! We had the pork three ways, sea bass, shrimp tempura roll and the... More

We had a truly terrific creative meal. I had the fish stew which may have been the best I've had anywhere. Madam had the lamb. The service was excellent, attentive friendly but not obtrusive. Really enjoyed this dining

We capped off a wonderful two weeks in Telluride with dessert and coffee at Cosmo. We ordered every single dessert on the menu so i sampled them all- (we had a party of 7). They were all delicious and the kids loved the idea of just ordering dessert! We did make reservations for 8:30 and they were ready for us... More

The six of us enjoyed this restaurant for the excellent, interesting food. Dinner entrees ranged from steaks to duck to sushi. The wine, craft beer, and specialty drink selections were great, and our seating had a view of the gondola. We also visited New Sheridan and Allred's but this was my favorite.

I have been coming to this restaurant for over 10 years. Every time my family and myself make it to Telluride, we ALWAYS have a Cosmo night! This restaurant is incredibly consistent with creativity and culinary experiences. On top of having amazing food, the service is beyond professional, trained and knowledgable of not only the food, but also wine pairings.... More

The staff was spot on...we had Cobb salad, soup of the day, sashimi...dishes were perfect. We finished with the berry pie with vanilla ice cream (made with sour creme)..what a treat! The bill was...

Along with the new Sheradan Steakhouse this is the best restaurant in downtown Telluride. Neat setting at base of the mountain. East to walk to. Cool crowd and great food. The white marlin was a special treat. With family dogs camped out across the street awaiting their owners return from the bar, it was a fun evening all around.

My partner and I ate at Cosmopolitan a few times during the 2013/2014 ski season and this was our first Summer 2014 visit. We had a 19:45 reservation on the Sunday of the July 4 weekend. Each time visiting Cosmo we hoped our experience would be a little better than it was previously. Sadly this visit was no better than... More

Cosmopolitan was highly recommended to our group, and we were looking forward to dining there. We were seated as soon as we arrived, and our server was helpful when discussing the menu. Two of us ordered the filet, and the other two ordered the chicken (with macaroni & cheese). All of the dinners were exceptional. We also ordered the berry... More
