You'd be surprised that a restaurant in a strip mall with four other stores (one of them a gym) would be so awesome. We spent a week in Alexandria and went here twice and both times the food and service were excellent. Would highly recommend stopping at this gem of a restaurant.

I drove by The Cosmopolitan countless times and did not realize it was there until some friends took me & my husband. Wow! I loved their spatzele & schnitzel. The beer selection was first rate, and the service was friendly and capable. I didn't have dessert, but there's a Sweet Frog next door!

We had been wanting to try this place for awhile, and we finally were able to go in for lunch. The ambiance was unexpectedly nice, for being in a strip mall next to Gold's Gym. They have reserved parking for patrons of the restaurant so we were able to snag one of those. However, there is ample parking. We immediately were greeted when we walked in, and allowed to pick our own table. We arrived pretty soon after it opened and there was one other couple there. Our waitress was lovely and very attentive without being pushy. We ordered two cokes and it was brought out and poured for us. I prefer fountain drinks, so when I go back I will have their iced tea. The best thing in my opinion was there delicious hot bread, with the feta cheese/sour cream spread. It was the BEST. I had the chicken snitzel with fries, and it was great. I almost ate all of my food, but was able to bring some home with me. I am looking forward to going back and trying their yummy food again.

We live very close to the Cosmopolitan and enjoy visiting. I've had lunch with girlfriends and dinner with family there. It's always a good experience. They are very friendly, courteous and go out of their way to make sure your dining experience is good. I particularly like their Bosnian Burger. It's huge and I usually take half of it home. The sauce on it is delicious. All in all, a great place to dine in an area where there is normally just chains and mediocre dining.

Went out with another couple. Food was wonderful, including the crepes desert. Had leftovers to take home.
