Slow, very slow and indifferent service. Menu very limited. Advisable for people with dentures as most dishes we ordered had a mush sort of look and feel to them despite some being tasty (guacamole).

Wanted to really enjoy Cosme, but the options we chose did not live up to the hype. I’ve had better margaritas in Austin, fresh lime juice but a bit watered down with too much ice. Cool vibe and service was good.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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) ...
