Was staying at the Doubletree and front desk person suggested this restaurant. We walked two blocks up the street and when we went in everyone turned and looked at us just like you would see in the movies. Shortly thereafter the bartender came out to us and asked if we were there for dinner and then told us that they... More

Went for lunch and had their famous steak sandwiches. One was a cheese steak with a light sauce and the second with spicy barbecue sauce. Both sandwiches were overstuffed and delicious. They were about $10 which was well worth it.

The old Cosmo has moved, and it not only looks great, but with this great location and solid food preparation, it is surely to increase its solid run as a great restaurant. Reservations seem to be a must as this restaurant is quite popular and has quite a loyal following. Great food, and now with a paved parking lot!

Nothing is worse than ordering a dish at a restaurant and then discovering it is from a grocery store or can. I ordered fish and chips and a cup of chowder. Three pieces of fish, all shaped alike and heavily breaded. Waitress confirms my worst suspicion: they receive frozen pre-breaded fish they dump in deep fryer. Based on this, I... More

The dinner menu is limited and pricey for the quantity and quality of food served (less than stellar in the taste department) served. The wait staff is fantastic...very friendly and personable. Probably will not return for dinner. Looks like the emphasis is on the lunch crowd. Parking was adequate but finding the entrance to the restaurant was a bit daunting... More

New location is on corner of O St and Ventura in downtown....basically in same parking lot as event and concert venues. This is part of Fresno history....with part of the bar being rolled down city streets to its new location! Everything is good here! Just like the old place, you can either order at counter or from your table. Brand... More

The food and service is good, big lunch crowd always. My favorite is the French dip or the Cosmo sandwich. South side of Downtown not far from Grizzly stadium, just off 99 on Fresno St.

We had dinner there and it was just a wonderful dinner. The Flat Iron steak is fantastic, the setting is relaxed, service was great and the drinks from the bar were very reasonable. Bread pudding for dessert is a must. I was told this place also has great sandwiches but I will save that for my next visit. Can't say... More

Great food, sandwiches are fantastic, staff is friendly, ambiance is comfortable. Go early before the lunch crowd since there will be a long line but worth the wait.

The food is great. I have eaten here for both lunch and dinner and I have always been satisfied with the food and service. Their wine list is not extensive but it has a very good selection to choose from and the pricing is reasonable. We shared a bottle of Justin Cabernet last night for $35.
