This place was great. We had a private room downstairs for a graduation party and the room was really private. The food was good, drinks and service were good.

Best sushi in town and the $5 Cosmos are delicious and a great deal. And the dinners and apps are fresh, creative and tasty!

Happy hour is good, get there early. Not impressed with the service, I'd give the food a five star and the service a two star. Last year was really impressed with the staff and the amazing cocktails, but this year something is definitely off. Guess it comes and goes with a high turnover in a small transient town.

We visited for dinner and made reservations earlier. Seating is comfortable bit tight, which is the norm for mountain businesses where space is at a premium. The staff was friendly but the star of the night was the food. We ordered a "surf and turf" meal, which could not have been prepared better, it was one of the best meals... More

We had friends that said we had to go to Cosmos happy hour for their $5 cosmos and their half price sushi. Our friends were right, it was all excellent! We had several sushi rolls, the lobster corny dogs (that seemed to be everyone's fav), shrimp & calamari, duck rillette and soup. Everything was wonderful! The service was excellent as... More

Great service and delicious meal. The wine list was excellent, but a bit pricey. The pork tender with macaroni and cheese and the rack of lamb with rice were both excellent. The bread was too good to pass up. The location was just off the gondola from Mountain Village which made it convenient to get to without a vehicle. Will... More

We ate at Cosmos twice on our vacation. The food was excellent and you couldn't ask for a better host than Michael.

The "Cosmo" is an outstanding restaurant with a diverse menu all anchored by creatively tasty sauces, soups and homemade breads and desserts. They pride themselves on accommodating practically all tastes, vegan included, and are always open to modifying their menu to accommodate individual tastes. It is one of the longest running restaurants in Telluride by the same owner, if not... More

Our food was so delicious. This is the sort of place where you want to go with the specials (especially the fish), because the chef is immensely talented. Have the basics, if you like, but the specials here are the adventure. Staff was warm and personable, not the drones you get in some places. Space is comfortable, not stiff, with... More
