Great Happy Hour

Go for the Happy hour - they have $5 cosmos + half priced sushi. The dining area is beautiful, with tons of natural lighting and great views of the mountain. Service was excellent and service was fast. Great drinks and great sushi with an awesome, romantic atmosphere.

We ate here twice during our two week vacation in Telluride. Located at the foot of the gondola, the window tables have excellent views of the mountain as the sun sets. Our group of 4 and then 7 were well-taken care of by the friendly and competent staff. The food was consistently tasty and uniquely prepared. The sushi appetizers were... More

Really, really overpriced for average/tired high end food and lays service. Our group of 8, with a reservation, were seated in the lobby, spent over $1000 including a $30+ bowl of Ramen. Apparently we were there late (after 9pm) because they decided to close while we were still seated. Literally closing the door to the restaurant only to reopen it... More

We also shares the soup of the day,calamari & ceasar salad. Service was attentive without being overbearing! Had been a while since we'd eaten there, won't wait so... More

My husband and I went there for hors d'oeuvres and drinks, but we ended up having dinner (we each had salads). Our food was really excellent. I had a beet salad and my husband had... More

The Cosmopolitan had great atmosphere and attentive servers. Extensive wine list, a menu with something for everyone. The Lobster Corn Dogs are a must-try.

Atmosphere: attractive dining room, however were seated next to the loud bar despite having made reservations, and other tables remained vacant the 2 hours we were there. It was hard to hold a conversation due to the noise. Slow and Poor service: we waited 10 minutes for water and drink orders. Server (not the waiter) brought salad before our app.... More

Flight cancelled? Another day in Telluride? Twist my arm! Lucky for me my family had a reservation for Cosmo's! What a treat! Our waitress from Bulgaria was delightful and very efficient! The halibut was delicious and everyone else enjoyed their meals: lamb two ways and the whole chicken! Worth the money!

Pleasant surroundings, sushi happy hour, cosmopolitans or wine for $6. There is no downside! The decor is modern, the view of the gondola is interesting, wait staff attentive, food supurb. Splurge $3 for the special bottles of still or sparking Nordaq water, it tastes simply amazing!
