What Insiders Are Saying
Cosme is an upscale Mexican restaurant in Flatiron that’s much more approachable than it appears to be.
Horrific how does it feel to be scam artists
Our knowledgeable server was able to clarify all questions we had about ingredients and methods of cooking
Drinks were delicious and perfect flavors with the seasonings in the food choices we made
Cosmé is always a superb dining experience!
Excellent food and service, but incredibly expensive so sadly just a special occasion place for us!
At first glance of the menu I wasn't excited about much on the menu but the food we chose was all really delicious, good wine, good service. Portions were small but enough. The only issue I had was how expensive it was - 2 people, 5 drinks and a conservative meal, no dessert was $380 incl service.
The food I had was good, but not groundbreaking. The crab intifada was a nice crab salad in a puffy tostada that didn’t add to the salad. The mole was really quite good, but not awe inspiring. The cocktail was yummy. Service was attentive and lovely. For next time, I will search out another option for the money.
The food ranged from decent to exceptional, the best dish being the lamb belly tacos. The problem with dinner was the tiny size of the portions and the careless service. For an overall tab of $225 for two (tip and one beer each included) we expected good pacing of the meal and portion sizes that exceeded a bite or two person per dish. Unfortunately, neither was present. Will not repeat.
Excellent place with wonderful food... but being in the top-50restaurants worldwide you would expect it to go that additional step further to make the dining experience outstanding, but it doesnt go that far .
It does take that extra step from a pricing perspective, but food quality does not. But food is exceptional ... dont get me wrong.
Great food & service.
We would definitely come back
Our table was not ready when we got there.
The noise was outrageous and we could barely hear each other.
The menu is very limited and no one explains it which is odd as the products are not common.
Last but not least, prices are over the moon.
service was horrible , no wonder they dont have a Michelin Star!
Excelente comida, un poco caro.
La carta de vinos es muy cara.
Excelente restaurante en general!
Amazing experience! The staff is extremely welcoming. Food was delicious! Cant find anything to complain.
TOO EXPENSIVE FOR WHAT IT IS. VERY SMALL PORTIONS. NOT A SATISFYING EXPERIENCE
As a Mexican, i feel very proud of what Cosme has to offer in NY. Great, fresh and stylish restaurant with very Mexican food, a way most people outside of Mexico have never tried. Can’t wait to come back!
En mi opinión la relación costó producto es inadecuada
Fantastic! A must-go destination for the culinarily enlightened.
Very limited food menu. Very small potions, very very expensive. What we did order was delicious. But we were hungry a little later. 2 seater seating very close together. We would never go back.
When I made the open table res, I stated we had someone with an onion allergy and would be looking for options around that issue. When we mentioned it to the server it was a surprise and he said there were almost no options for us. We got very little food for a lot of $$$. We did not get a welcoming feeling from our servers.
Excellent food, creative and deliciuos. Al the staff are very friendly.
For the first time in fifteen times the duck was over cooked. The bartender was distracted.
The place is nice but ridiculously expensive. It was $400 for 4 of us. The service was OK, but I found the waiters to have a bad attitude. Asking them to bring more tortillas was a chore. The tortillas they serve are delicious but they don't serve enough.
The Cobia al Pastor and the Duck carnitas were excellent. The Fluke Tostadas are not worth the price ($25 for 1 tostada). I would recommend eating here once. Would I go back? Probably not.
The food was delicious and unique and the service was perfect. But the food is so vastly overpriced that we had a hard time enjoying it. I won’t return.
Small food selection and small portion. Can use bigger plates to make dishes look more presentable.
Very nice staff , very chick ambient, awesome, authentic Mexican flavor and delicious food...highly recommended !
Way Overpriced for the amount and quality of food you get however it was a nice experience
Excelente!! Comida deliciosa. El tamal con ese color naranja de lo mejor que he probado.
A disappointment. It’s a shame that a restaurant that represents a culture that is recognized for excellent service under delivers this big....service was hostile, pretentious, and totally ruined the overall experience. Food was ok, some dishes good some others below average.
As all other reviewers have said, this is a unique take on Mexican cuisine. Flavorful and refined dishes, well prepared and plated. The service was somewhat disorganized and between the decibel level of the "music" and the tequila fueled conversations and laughter, the sound was way beyond the comfort level for enjoying the meal.
Extremely overrated. I think all of the positive reviews are bought. The food was bland, lacked any flavor (despite it being covered in heavy sauces). The duck was decent but everything else was unsatisfying. There’s many great restaurants by nyc, this is not one of them. Save your money and go elsewhere. Any person that I mentioned this restaurant to agreed.
We felt like we are rushed to finish and wanted out to free the table for the next seating.
It is not that level of restaurant that should do it.
It is not my first time there that I’m feeling that way.
Food is great, but great your guests in more respectful manner.
Food is amazing, a Mexican flavor with a very modern touch. Being a Mexican and having tasted many of these flavors locally, it was an incredible experience to taste such combinations. Dish presentations were really nice and the recommended house wine was really tasteful. Unfortunately, service was slow and I had to wait for my food for over 20 minutes. I believe this can be enhanced as the price is a little high. But overall, I highly recommend it, just take your time!
A differentiated dining experience with creative dishes, very good service, in an unpretentious environment.
I was expecting so much more...menu is very limited. Sorry to say, mole as a main course really doesn't do the trick...it should be "pollo con mole" or something similar. I realize COSME is the "in-place" at the moment; however, if things don't change it won't be for long. The food and wine list are also way over priced (even for NYC) ...
Amazing! We just love Cosme.
High quality food and service.
Waiter was slow and inattentive. Refused to reimburse us for a drink the bus boy took before it was finished.
We went on cinco de mayo, table was ready, the wait staff was super, they explained the menu perfectly. The food was OMG awesome and drinks were Outstanding. You won't be disappointed.
The food was very tasty but it wasn't a great value. The prices are crazy high -- $98 for a main course for 2 people to share; $30 for a tiny appetizer. Not sure we would come here again, but trying it once was worth it.
The highlight was the signature dessert, husk meringue with corn mousse, though I'd like to try it without the vanilla, which overpowers the delicate sweet-and-salty flavor of the corn mousse. Another standout dish was the crab infladita appetizer -- a fried, puffed-out tortilla filled with crab and topped with avocado mousse and edible flowers.
The duck carnitas (this is the $98 main course for 2) is another signature dish, and a quick scan of the restaurant showed that nearly all the diners chose to have it. The duck was expertly cooked and full of flavor, and there was plenty of it. No wonder this is their most popular dish.
The decor was our least favorite part of the experience. It felt cold and sterile (everything looked to be various shades of gray), really not what we expected. A Mexican restaurant, even a high-end one, should feel welcoming and cozy, and throwing in a few colors wouldn't hurt. Also, the tables were way too high. My hands were falling asleep from the awkward placement.
All in all, Cosme offers some amazing food, but taking into account the prices and the ambience, it's nothing to write home about.
Some dishes are great and some others are not...desserts are definitely not the best.
Great ambience and service. Amazing presentation of food but not great tasting! Had to send back two dishes and the $98 duck entree was dry! Don’t be late for a reservation as they pressure you to be completed with meal within 90 minutes of your reservation time Better to go have a fun drink at the bar instead of wasting hundreds of dollars for subpar food.
