Some friends and I recently attended the half price sushi happy hour. When we finally flagged down a server, probably a 15 minute wait, our dining experience improved although not greatly. Not to take anything away from the kitchen or bar tender, our sushi and cocktails were excellent. The level of professionalism in the waitstaff is low.

We ate at Cosmo our first night in Telluride and were not aware that it would be our best meal of the trip. Everything was wonderful. I had the filet mignon and my husband had the prime rib. Both dinners were perfect, charred meat with medium rare centers and great accompaniments. The food was promptly served when it was ready,... More

A large group of us enjoyed a wonderful dinner here. The restaurant is adjacent to the gondola station in Telluride, so it's very easy to get there from the hotels/condos in Mountain Village. The service was friendly and efficient. Their bar offerings were great, as were the desserts! Highly recommended!

Get here early for happy hour as the Sushi is half price. There is usually a queue so make sure you get to the front. This is the best sushi I have ever tasted! Highly recommended.

This is one of those restaurants we will crave for a long time to come. Everything we had was done to perfection but must pay special attention to the seafood. This kitchen knows what they are doing! Shrimp and Calamari app was delicious - perfect texture, just enough sauce to entice but not drown. Several sushi apps done very well.... More
