Went to Cosmo. My father in law's favorite restaurant in town. He loves the BBQ salmon and it is always reliably and perfectly prepared. When we went, our group had surf and turf, prime rib prepared two ways, and a seafood stew. All were impeccably prepared, and our server, EK, was fantastic. We ordered a bottle of a white pinot...

Amazing food and great service. Would recommend the sushi and starters are all great. The cosmopolitan cocktail is the best I've had! Would definitely go back- lives up to the hype.

Our family of 9 chose Cosmopolitan as one of our "dressy" nights out. The whole experience was wonderful. There was not one person who didn't say that their meal goes down as one of their best ever. The prices are very reasonable as far as Telluride prices go. Would definitely say "Go!"

We were very pleased with our entire experience at Cosmo. Our drinks were great and the food was tasty. I had the rack of lamb which was well prepared but the portion was small. We also ordered the tuna and pork. My husband was happy they cooked the tuna to his liking. We had the calamari as an appetizer. We... More

The mixed drinks are delicious there. Sushi rolls were way overpriced and not well done - rice too sticky, dry, bland, etc. Service was great. Overall I expected much more for the huge bill we had at the end.

This place looked fantastic! Right by gondola stop , fireplace, upscale, beautiful cocktails, always crowded. Little lounging area by fireplace. We tried several times hoping for a cancellation but could not get in. Call way before your trip starts. Next time for sure!

We went for Happy Hour. The drinks were great, the food was average. They overcharged us on the bill and it took two trys for them to get the 1/2 price sushi on our bill correct.

Always difficult, but the price fixe menu offerings at Cosmo for New Years Eve were outstanding. Service was top notch, great wine list, and the food was wonderful. Even though they were crowded we never felt rushed and thoroughly enjoyed our meal and celebration of the New Year.

The Cosmopolitan has a great menu, service atmosphere but lacks adequate seating, especially if you have a party larger than 4. Although our food was excellent, we had made our reservations 2 weeks in advance of our visit and all 7 of us were crammed into a diner-like booth designed for 4. It was not even in the main restaurant... More

Great selection of food, and wine and very attentive service make for a good experience. Located close to the Gondola in the town of Telluride, it is worth a visit.
