Third review for this place. Third time we left happy and with full bellies. This time we both had the seafood bouillabaisse and couldn't have been happier. It was excellent and the homemade bread was, as always, incredible! We will book again next year. I am already salivating.

in over 20 years we have never had a bad meal at Cosmo. The wait staff changes but the quality of their meals remains excellent.

The food and wine here is very good and was made even better by the excellent and friendly staff here. Our server Tiffany was excellent and very attentive even to our party of seven. Not cheap here but definitely a must do in Telluride.

We were out at Telluride for the 2014 Film festival. We had made reservations for 6 for a table of 8. I think that when you book for a larger number and they expect a mandatory 18% tip the service is less. We arrived on time for the dinner and we were almost promptly seated. It seemed that we were...

Between 5 and 6p in the bar area you can get a delicious Cosmo (made by Vincent) for $5 or a glass of wine for $7. Sushi is half price. Their bread is to die for and their regular menu is great too!

I have been coming here for years and look forward to eating here every time I am in Telluride. The homemade burrata (an obsession of mine) is perfection as is the calamari. The entrees are always exquisite. This is a classic restaurant. I love this place.

From 5-6 PM, Cosmopolitans are $5 and sushi is half price. The sushi chef is very creative and the presentation and tastes are excellent. There is also a varied menu of non-Asian dishes. The menu changes daily based on availability of ingredients. Located at the base of the gondola, the location could not be better.

The hook is 1/2 price sushi for happy hour along with drink special. The space is beautiful. The service was actually quite good. They bring complimentary bread to the table which is quite good. We each ordered a sushi dish for an average price of $10 a plate. The portions are miniscule although the sushi was actually quite good. The... More

Wow, this experience was bad in so many ways, especially for a high rated restaurant: We waited quite a while to be acknowledged by our waitress Casey who was more interested in a large party table next to us Little flies were buzzing around our table Menu was different than on their own website - Casey said you should call...

Everything here is fresh and delicious and creatively presented. The sushi is especially nice. The bread seems to be baked on site and is very good. We weren't in the market for alcohol, but saw interesting drinks at other tables.
