Ranked #4 in Alexandria, your expectation will probably be higher than your reality. It's very good. It's not wow. The schnitzel is excellent if that's your thing. The chicken with mushroom sauce is very good. The lamb chops are very good. The atmosphere is very...More

Sure the food was good, but the menu is pretty limited. We tried the schnitzel and it was good, but I’m not sure it stood out as being exceptional. I didn’t really see many other German items on the menu. The service was very good...More

Not enough places that sell German Food in NOVA. Had to drive over 20 minutes to get here and it was worth the drive. Great Schnitzel and the service was excellent. My wife and daughter got the Pikata Schnitzel and I got the Jaeger Schnitzel....More

Fantastic meal. Had the Schnitzel.....was simply fantastic. Portions were large. Waitstaff was attentive without hovering and very friendly. The service was prompt. It was a bit on the pricey side.....but not to the point of making this only an occasional visit. Will definitely go back.

I’ll keep this short and sweet..... You have to give this place a shot. Absolutely perfect Bavaria style food. The name is misleading. If you want a taste of Germany, this is the place to go.

The Cosmopolitan is truly a hidden gem. The food is excellent...from fresh baked bread and special sour cream, to the delicious goulash, fresh salads and great schnitzel. One of us also had the Tilapia fish that was also...excellent...seeing a trend here? Yep, I don't think...More

We are in our late 70s and often have lunch as our main meal. We have enjoyed our meals here but this time we were surprised: the lunch menu has fewer items we love. Wife enjoyed stuffed cabbage, brought back great memories. I come here...More

We have been to this restaurant a good number of times. Food is consistently very good. My husband likes the German dishes; I love the shrimp dish. The fries and cooked vegetables were wonderful. Desserts - divine. Good service.
