Went with friends for whom this is a firm neighborhood favorite. The food is Bosnian, so tends to meats, hearty portions and lots of breaded and fried options. One reviewer described the food as Mediterranean, which it is not. My friends loved their goulash, schnitzel, crab cakes and tilapia salad. My shrimp and rice was fine- large portion and tasty....

My daughter and her family took me to this restaurant for dinner. They lived in Germany for 3 years and enjoy the authentic German cuisine. The schnitzel is tender and moist , the spätzle soft and fluffy.. yummy portions are generous, plenty to fill you up or take leftovers home for tomorrow

Family owned; our waitress was the daughter of the house, and the baklava, clearly homemade, was made by her mother. My date says we'll go again. Often!

Much better that the average Route 1 fare. Owner is on site and it shows. European flair with good quality and service. Don't let the location next to a health club turn you off.

We ate a late brunch for the first time here and were impressed by this restaurant. Everything is informal and friendly, with a welcoming atmosphere. I had the wiener schnitzel, and it was huge and good, accompanied by a large green salad (fries are an alternative). They have a modest beer and wine list, including some Croatian wines. Highly recommended... More

Don't let the German inspired menu or prices scare you away. The food is delicious and you will not walk away hungry.

If I had had any idea this was this bad... I would have never gone. We had greek salad and hubby had chicken schnitzel. The chicken part was WAY overcooked and it is really more cream cheese than anything. Standard old french fries... not sure if there were any other options but french fries. The salad was ok. Not sure... More

Enjoyed the delicious meals at Cosmopolitan twice. Truly delicious meals each time. Service was terrific. Glad to hear the owners are expanding their business and opening a new restaurant (Old House)in the Spring of 2017. Location Old Town Alexandria - corner of Cameron and N Henry.

The food and service were excellent. When we couldn't decide between two wines, both were offered to all four of us for tastes. After we ordered our food, they suggested that we move to a larger table because two of us ordered a platter for two and it would be large. The food was delicious, the portions large, the price...
