Great food and drink, very snooty service – Iam a carpenter, and one evening my wife and I had went to cosmos for dinner. Fantastic food and drink, however, I had showed up in nice jeans, and an over coat, and i had some drywall mud on my hands and arms, and everyone looked at me like i was a white guy in mississippi. we both were kicked out due to my apperance and statue.
What makes them better than me? Hell I probley make more in a month than most customers there in a year. Next time I think I will go where the "low middleclass" go to, cause that was all i was worth to them.
If you have a 3 piece suit and look like and talk like money, go for it, but 8 bucks for water? no wonder the economy is poor
Unbeatable sophistication – Fantastic food and atmosphere. The elite meeting place for those a step ahead of others. Secluded, discreet location
Great Value – We go for weekend retreats/rehabs here, usually after getting so bombed downtown that we don't want to risk driving home. It is a solid hotel, past trendy, with a transient yet appropriate staff. The service is slow in the restaurant but the environment makes you decide to just chill, (breakfast is one of the best meals here). Guests who stay here seem to be either getting married, fresh from convention, working on their East coast quirkiness or are performing next door at the Target Center. Fries are excellent. The dance club downstairs feels like a real big city place. Whomever did the design work built to last and it shows. It is a great asset to Minneapolis.
Best Hotel in town!!! – Located across from the Target Center ; where the Timberwolves play(a minus in my opinion but tolerable). It is a bit off the beaten path for tourist that wish to shop and eat at fine restaurants but is VERY near some of the night clubs and local hangouts. The hotel is VERY modern and VERY well staffed and maintained!!! The rooms feature plasma and/or lcd flat panel TV's. The bedding is luxurious. The toiletries are top of the line. Everything is very modern but still inviting! You will not be disappointed! The staff is quick to get the door and help you out with whatever your needs are. I didn't visit the bar or restaurant but they looked very nice. See my recommendations on places to visit and eat at.
Great weekend getaway – We went here for our anniversary, and got the breakfast in bed package. The room was smaller than the pictures online suggested, but the bed was the most comfortable one I have ever slept in, and the location of the hotel is top. We walked to dinner, walked to clubs that night, and walked back! The 5 head shower was amazing, and the television in the bathroom a fun plus.
The breakfast package includes $30 credit for room service, plus a late 3pm checkout. Totally worth it after going out all night. The breakfast was excellent, filling, and included all drinks (coffee, tea, juice). The leisurely check out was great. We were treated wonderfully, and had a great time.
$$$$$$$$$$ Bring Lots $$$$$$ Expect Little – Nothing like i was expecting, totally overpriced for the dishes we ordered. 12$ for a sip of wine, 12$ for a leaf of lettuce with some vinaigrette sprayed on it, 8$ for EVIAN WATER! Dont even bother with the coat check because you'll want your jacket in the dining area.
Exceptional Food, Service, Atmosphere – i highly recommend cosmos to anyone looking for a fine dining experience in the twin cities in a trendy, sophisticated setting. the service was very attentive without being overbearing, the wine selection was excellent, and the food beautifully presented and ranks among the best in terms of flavor, variety, and innovative menu offerings in the twin cities. appetizers and entrees were exceptional (try the crab cakes); desserts were good but definitely not equivalent to the main course. overall, cosmos is a top notch restaurant that i did not find to be overrated whatsoever, as other reviews have stated.
Fantastic food, Vegas atmosphere – Honestly, I don't know what is with some people here! Sounds like a bunch of people who don't know or appreciate good food. I have been to many of the best restaurants in Vegas and Chicago and Cosmos ranks as one of the best restaurants I have ever been to. Did the tasting menu, it was absolutely fantastic! Every single thing I had was pure bliss-I was suprised how good it was. As good as Spring in Chicago easily. The foie was the best I'd ever had anywhere! Beef, fish, the cheese course-all flavored just right. You can tell Cosmos has a real gem of a chef. It's kinda sad that it wasn't very busy, people in Minneapolis must be nuts or have no taste, cause Cosmos would be slammin' every night in Vegas. Ambience is very slick, hip and fun! Service was top notch-very professional. I truly felt pampered. The Chocolate Globe is the best dessert I have ever had!Patronize this restaurant, it deserves good business. Prices are very reasonable for such flawless quality. I'm new to Minneapolis and afraid that good chefs won't come here because people here just want to eat at the trough at Old Country Buffet. Aquavit was the same-stunning, fantastic food, but closed.
Best downtown location; Very mod and chic accommodations! – This is a classy upscale place to stay when in Mpls. I've stayed there three times. Twice as Le Meriden and then renamed Graves 601. The service is wonderful. They have valet parking at the door so no worries about something happening to your car in the Downtown area. The rooms are so comfy and really nice for a special occasion or event. I love the bedding and bath robes. The used to have Hermes bath products but have switched to Aveda, which is a bit of a bummer. Very quiet, no children, no pool--who needs one. They have flat-screen Tv's, modern bathrooms, and the whole nine-yards.
Somewhat disappointed – We were expecting gorgeous decor and wonderful food and while we enjoyed our dinner we ended up feeling slightly disappointed. Food was good, not great. The somewhat inconvenient location didn't help either - unless you are staying at the hotel it is rather out of the way. For such a highly rated restaurant we expected more.
