Our dinner experience at Cosmopolitan was delightful. We were hoping to find a fine dining for our last night in Telluride, and were fortunate enough to reserve a spot. The service was friendly and professional, and our food was cooked to perfection (BBQ salmon!). We very highly recommend Cosmopolitan for anyone looking for a high quality and fine dining dinner...

Wow. Their calamari was insanely good. Their filet was unreal. Drinks were on it, and the couple next to us gave us a riot of a good time. Friendly faces, great food

Excellent menu, food well prepared. Great cocktails. Staff was very accommodating when we asked to be seated at a table outside of the main restaurant.

This review is not just about our service, but what also happened to an 8 top, 6 top and two other 2 tops, as we were all sitting in the same area. I would NEVER go back and definitely NOT recommend, which is too bad since the food was really good. When I told our concierge about our experience, she... More

Enjoyed sitting at the bar and having a few appetizers and great martinis! Very crowded night, but the bartender and wait staff were great!

We were looking forward to dinner at Cosmopolitan based on previous visits but found our meals lackluster. Not bad, just not stellar. For example, someone ordered a sushi roll made with apples - sounded interesting - but the apple slices in the roll was not crisp so the overall taste was dull. It was mentioned to wait staff. She was... More

My wife had the filet mignon and pronounced it perfectly cooked and seasoned. I had the heirloom tomatoes goat cheese which was very good. Then I had the cobb salad and it was very good. We had a riesling and it was very sweet even more than normal. It was an early Friday night and there were a dozan open... More
