As a Telluride regular I love Cosmo - the food is delicious and the homemade bread is the best in town but my recent experience there was extremely disappointing. The food was great but the hostess was so rude it was shocking. Instead of being treated like the loyal customers we are – she acted like we were an unwelcome... More

It's not the cheapest happy hour, but people do line up for it. Good drink specials, but I think the food is the same price. Still, it was a surprise hit. We didn't know what kind of food they had and it ended up being an eclectic mix. We got a bunch of things including sushi, salad, and some calamari.... More

This was by far one of the best meals I have had at a restaurant in a long time. The service was great, the wine list exceptional, and the food superb. Don't miss the lobster corndog and the surf and turf.

I think that this is the best restaurant that I ate at in Telluride. The Surf & Turf was AMAZING!! Also, we had the happy hour where all sushi and house wine is half off. The sushi was SUPER DELICIOUS. The staff was excellent & left us feeling pampered. Fine dining at it's best!

This place has a great happy hour. $5.00 cosmos. A nice red and white wine for a nice price. And, they have nice appetizers. I get the sushi rolls. The sushi rolls are very good, (for mountain sushi). Sorry Mtn. sushi, you are just not the same as sushi in Cali, HI, Japan etc. But, still, as Mtn. sushi goes,... More

Nice ambiance and staff at this large restaurant across the street from the gondola. We were promptly seated, with a nice, attentive server. Tuna was good, lobster corndogs too heavy, chess pie excellent (and a dessert almost never on offer). Good champagne by the glass.

First night staying at the hotel came here. The food is the best in Telluride, and great relative to anywhere. From the bread with its hint of salt, to the meats, to the service, to the drinks, Cosmo has it all figured out. And it has delightful views in addition.
