It's a hotel restaurant so I don't necessarily have the same standards as a stand alone restaurant. They generally need to cater to a pretty diverse crowd that doesn't offer repeat business. The food was creative with nice presentation but the flavors were a bit...More

This is a restaurant in the Lowe's hotel. I had breakfast here and it cost ~$30. I am not knocking the quality because everything was cooked perfectly and the ingredients were fresh. However I am knocking the overall cost. I had a cup of grapefruit...More

I find it interesting and a bit disturbing that the Cosmos management has the time to revel in all their glory when they get a good review yet fail to even acknowledge the writers of a not so favorable review. I did not expect nor want anything from Cosmos except maybe a 'sorry things didn't go well, we'll try harder!' Oh well, such is life.
