Everything was top notch, from the ambiance, to the quality and taste, to the service. My boyfriend and I celebrated our 3 year anniversary and we could not have been more pleased. Our server Matthew was wonderful, very informative and attentive! I can not say enough about the hospitality and his suggestions were spot on! We started with the tuna... More

Excellent Food, Great Wine, Great Service. The tuna tartare was spectacular, the steak was cooked to perfect, and the dessert was a perfect finish to a great meal. I would highly recommend this restaurant!

Cosmos continues to be a flashy destination with very good food, but it could be better. Truly fine dining requires table linens and attentive service. Our group of 4 dined at Cosmos on May 31, 2009 and most recently on December 19, 2014. Even though Cosmos has a new chef, not much has changed in five and a half years.... More

I recently enjoyed a meal at Cosmos with friends, and I can't say enough good things about my experience. My hubby and I arrived for our group reservation with friends early and enjoyed a few drinks at the bar while we waited. The bartenders were professional, courteous and attentive. We were then seated for the meal with three other friends,... More

We enjoyed Chistmas dinner here on a prix fixe menu. Great flavors. Cocktails were delicious, especially the French Mountainside. Environment was trendy, modern, and not stuffy. Attentive service. We had the vegitable/hummus platter and the red pepper/sambuca soup for first course, then we each had wild mushroom tagliatelle, followed by apple/chocolate crepes. Between courses, we were served interesting amuse-bouches.

Four friends and myself had a most delightful meal at Cosmos last night. All the food was wonderful but in particular the tuna tartare was extraordinary. The wait staff was all very pleasant but Matthew ensured our visit went smoothly. The new executive chef obviously knows how to please the palate!

I just arrived home after having an out of body experience at Cosmos in the Loews Minneapolis Hotel. At two points during the meal I and a friend of mine actually had tears in our eyes.

I am glad to see Loew's had the good sense to keep the well trained, knowledgeable service staff through the transition. Mathew our server was curious, polite and helpful.

A friend and I decided to meet for a nice dinner before we both left town for the holidays. He chose Cosmos, a restaurant I'd heard about many times, but never visited. Although the docor seemed a bit tired (the wood veneer on the tables was oddly sticky and looked very worn at the corners) the food and drink made... More
