Apparently after you make a reservation is very complicate to call if you’re late and may lose your table. It may take around 15-20 min to order a single drink. The food is awesome though.

Lots of stylish severs, but very impersonal. It was definitely a diverse, loud and happy crowd. Portions were small...flavors unique and big. Over-order and share. The duck carnitas and corn meringue dessert should not be missed. It’s so trendy that the objective seems to be to move as many people as possible through the tables. Value is in the flavors not the “dear”
contents or ambiance...at the end of the rushed evening you realize you’ve paid a premium for the “Cosme” mystique. Either they’ll figure out how to make it an enjoyable social and dining experience or they’ll be peddling frozen entrees at Trader Joe’s in the not too distant future.

This restaurant shows how versatile the Mexican food can be. This is the first True HIGH END Mexican restaurant that includes Mexican wines in the menu and these are also of an excellent quality. The best example that Mexican does not mean cheap or classless. Congratulations to Chef Olvera

Excellent meal, although the menu is a bit confusing. The server explained it to us as "tapas-style" which was sort of true for the first and second courses, but the third (main) course was really pretty full-sized dishes. All that is to say, we left way too full and didn't even finish our dessert! But if that's the worst I have to say about a restaurant, it was a pretty great meal.

Great service and ambiance. Food is mostly good, very creative and innovative but has increasingly become less of a good value over the years.

A nice unexpected journey of tasting modern Mexican cuisine. The food are well plated, with nice focus on texture and flavor, particularly on the sauces/mole, while not overpowering or sometimes elevating the original flavor of the ingredients. We went for lunch and the atmosphere is nice, with a decent crowd and ambiance. It’s not too fancy to call it fine dining, but is definitely a great place for special occasions or to impress someone (foodie). The price is reasonable given it’s relatively high ranking in the global best restaurants list.

After hearing so much about this place, it was a real disappointment. The waiter was pretentious. Food was good but we didn’t find it amazing. Soft shell crab in yellow mole- the turmeric was overwhelming. Tataki fish tacos- my favorite. Butternut squash tamal- the squash itself is sweet so I would have toned down the sweetness of the sauce.
Waiter recommended 2-3 plates per person. Thank goodness we didn’t listen- we were perfectly satisfied sharing 3 plates between 2 people. That said, portion sizes are very small- but the prices are not. Every plate felt like it was a few dollars too much.
If I am going to spend that kind of money I much prefer Gramercy Tavern or Union Square Cafe where both good and service are flawless.

Lovely small menu makes selection easy. Great wait staff (even if they are taught to top off your wine glass a bit too frequently) and very good sommelier who was not trying to "upsell". The food was amazing, inventive, delicious - we loved it. Cosme was cosmic!

La comida es muy buena, muy creativa, pero los precios ya son muy elevados. Qué lástima!
Sin embargo, todo indica que todos los días está a su capacidad máxima. Qué bueno, siendo un gran cheff mexicano!

We've been here several times for lunch/brunch and dinner and Cosme never disappoints. We had Victoria as our server, and she was excellent. She made great recommendations and our glasses were never empty. This is one of my favorite restaurants anywhere, and the outstanding food and service keep me coming back!

Unfortunately I didn't enjoy the menu of the day, Cosme used to be my favorite restaurant for dinner and all celebrations. This is the first time I went for lunch and the menu is not as amazing as dinner... We ordered, mole, frijolada, barbacoa and other starters which were good, but these 3 dishes we didn't even finish them. For dinner is amazing, for lunch, not recommended.

Absolutely incredible! The drinks were inventive and simple. The food was fantastic. Everything was authentic, creative, and delicious. The moles made me want to lick the plates. Finishing with the Corn Husk Meringue was perfection. It was like eating a smooth corn cloud.
