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

This was our third choice for dinner. The other locations had 30 minute waits on a Monday night. Wow...immediate seating, great table with view of Gondola. 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

We arrived early for our reservation and enjoyed wine at the bar. The wine menu is admirable and I am a tough critic when it comes to that. I found a lovely cab sauv that I hadn't seen anywhere since I was in Napa. We then moved on to dinner and had Lobster CornDogs which I recommend everyone try!! Very... More

The food was very good. Our favorites were the fish stew, chopped salad, chocolate bomb and ice cream. Cocktails were also quite tasty. Our waitress was super fun and friendly! We'll be back!

We've eaten here the last two nights and love the food. The sushi rolls are very well done but are quite a small portion for $18-$20 each. The octopus starter was also good but very small. Our favorite starter is the calamari & shrimp - a bit more for the money. The complimentary bread is wonderful and refills are plentiful.
