I loved the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes.

We booked a table for dinner in the restaurant and we were seated in the freezing cold bar area. If we wanted to go to a bar for supper we wouldn't have make open table restaurant reservations. Cold, service was slow and our food took over 1 hour. NEVER ever going back

We went for dinner recently on a Friday night. It was our first time at the Cosmos Greek Kitchen, and we were very delighted. The restaurant is very nicely decorated with a sense of sophistication. The ambiance is conducive to an intimate dinner where our group of seven people was able to hear each other speak.

The food was excellent and the calamari were the best any of us have ever had. These were crisp, light, and just about melted in our mouths. The lamb souvlaki, roasted lamb, ribs, and steak plates were delicious. The lentil soup was very good, and the Greek salad was amazing with a generous covering of feta cheese. The only disappointment was the mousaka because it had an overpowering flavour of cinnamon/nutmeg. Perhaps just a pinch of these spices should be used in order to give a subtle taste to this dish.

A sample variety of desserts was served to us on one plate where each dessert was cut in half. After such a delicious and satisfying meal we wanted to share the sweets. This capped off our dinner very nicely.

My husband and I moved to Edmonton from Montreal over two years ago, and this was the first Greek restaurant we have been to in this city. As a compliment to Cosmos Greek Kitchen, the cuisine is as authentic and delicious as the best Greek restaurants in Montreal. We will definitely be back in the near future, and I definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a truly great Greek food experience.

The food was mediocre at best. We ordered an appetizer tray and I was disappointed. Even the hummus did not taste like anything I had ever had before. The eggplant dip was horrendous, and the jalapeno dip was just some kind of flavorless cream cheese concoction. I ordered my steak medium well and got well done. The only good part of the accompanying vegetables was the carrots, which were well-cooked - unusual since most restaurants don't seem to know how to cook carrots these days. Although the rice and tomato sauce was the highlight of my meal, I almost didn't eat it because it was visually unappealing. The tomato sauce to me should have been shiny, not the dull off-putting matte red that it was. To me, this was not true Greek food, and I will not go back. Also, their wait staff needs to be told not to bathe in cologne before beginning their shift because many people like me are allergic to almost any kind of scented products. The ambiance was not great either. We were the only people in the place actually having - ahem - dinner and I can see why.

I brought my girlfriend here for dinner for her birthday, and we absolutely loved the food!
Just before our appetizers came, a group of young women came in and sat at the table next to us. They were very loud, and came off disrespectful to us and the other customers by not moving to the lounge side and also not behaving a little more decent around others who were out to enjoy a quiet dinner like us. Loud enough to the point we plugged our ears and considered leaving even though we ordered but never even got our food...
Our waitress offered for us to switch tables, so we did, which helped a bit for the noise level, but even the other tables next to us commented on the racket and packed up early. The manager compensated us with a gift voucher and amazing desserts, which we didn't expect but were very appreciative of.
We were served an amazing meal and even our leftovers even tasted as good as they did when they were fresh!
Honestly - 10/10 for food and drinks, 10/10 for service, and maybe a 4/10 for noise. Too bad the lounge side was so much quieter than the restaurant side that night.
We will absolutely come back again for the meals, but hopefully not run into the "Kardashians" again...
Minus the hen party, we had a great time at Cosmos and we will be back, and we will bring with friends too!

We didn't get to eat dinner as they were not open on Canada Day. Two other Greek Restaurants were also not open. There was no indication on open table to say this was closed for the day. This is not a reflection on Cosmos as we have eaten there before. But info should have been looked at by Open Table or more communication by the Restaurants.....

We were in Cosmo celebrating father’s day one week early. The service was slow initially but picked up after we ordered. My parents had the chicken soup with lemon. They both loved it. We ordered the combo plate for 2 to share among 3 of us. There was plenty of food! The food is amazing! My late at are picky eaters, they love the food especially the roast lamb! The owner is very friendly and brought us complementary desserts! It was a very lovely evening in Cosmo. Would definitely go back again!

A friend/former colleague shared a few mezethes and an order of Greek ribs. The ribs and the dolmades (with a creamy lemon sauce) were excellent and I/we will definitely return. The service was very good and personalised.

Every aspect of our evening was 5 star! The appetizers of calamari, cheese and olive plate and spanakopita were delicious. We each ordered different main courses and we each thought we had ordered the best. I always have the chicken souvlaki, my husband loves the donair, my daughter had the shrimp souvlaki and my son the lamb chops. The servers are relaxed, knowledgeable and a lot of fun. Quite a combination. The space is small yet the tables are not crammed together. The mood is fun and relaxing. My husband who doesn't love going out for supper said he could quite happily go to Cosmos every couple of weeks and I'd gladly go with him. Without a doubt the best Greek food in the city.
