Review №1

I have eaten here many times and each time the service is good. Even during the current Pandemic, the service was very good. The food has always been good and comes relatively fast. Definitely would suggest this to anyone visiting if you are looking good food, friendly and fast service and that old school diner atmosphere.

This is a casual restaurant so you can "come as you are".The food is some of the best I've ever had! If you are looking for fresh, home cooked, made from scratch food then treat yourself to a meal here.If you have dietary restrictions, special orders are no problem. No time to sit? You can get it to go!The prices are fair and the portions are generous!Hours are 6:30am-8:00pmSee you there!!They are open onThanksgiving!!THANKSGIVING DINNERS ARE AVAILABLE!!CAKES & PIE ORDERS ACCEPTED-ORDER EARLY!!!!

It was great! Service was very good! We had very little time & they accommodated us. Very appreciated!Food was also very good!Definitely looking forward to visiting again!

Review №4

Once food was dropped off at table we did not see server much until the tab was brought. It would have been nice just to ask if we needed anything or maybe how the food tasted. She was nice tho. We all have our days. Aside from that breakfast was okay. We were called on phone when table was available and ALL were wearing masks. Even all others eating. It felt comfortable. Thank you!

Stopped by for dinner one night after searching around for good local family diners in and around Newark and Wilmington Delaware. Glad to have found this place. Have returned here 4 times since. The place offers a friendly, homely and cosy dining experience and the staff was very helpful and courteous. Enjoyed the chicken croquettes, chicken steak, wings, salad and plenty of other things. I am pretty sure you won't be disappointed. Would definitely recommend this place if you are in the area.

Review №10

Long wait for a table on Sunday, but definitely worth the wait. Great food, great service.

Review №11

My family has come here for many years the food has always been good and the portions are nothing to complain about usually take some of my order home to finish later

Review №12

Dinner was good much better then last time my lamb was really good. The only issue we had was the desserts tasted like they had been sitting in the fridge a little to long. Which is sad since they used to have such good desserts ...

Review №13

Disappointing dessert. The pies in the fridge are only for display, my slice of pie looked like someone smashed the pie and put on my plate

Review №14

Ordered takeout for Easter. Food was plenty and delicious. Baklava was huge and delicious

Cosmos is classic American diner food served by nice folks.

Review №17

Food was terrible and over priced .Corn beef sandwich had very little corn beef on stale rye breadKaiser roll on hamburger was stale.Fries were terrible. Soup was ice cold

Review №18

I hadn't been here in years, had creamed chip beef, probably the best I've ever had

Review №19

I've eaten there for years . This was my first visit since covid19. Food was great but the gentleman handling the take out was not covering his nose when he was bagging up the food. Disappointed.We will wait till this is over before going back

I like to go with friends to this restaurant with my warmest recommendations. I visit this restaurant often. I get very good feedback from my friends. The meals are fantastic and the crew is efficient and cooperative. Every time we eat in this place we enjoy a cheerful evening. I recommend this place with pleasure.

Review №28

The food took 1 hour to be served. And it was not a busy shift. They gave us free dessert to apologize. And a lil bit pricey.

Fantastic food. Great service.

Review №31

A great, traditional diner. All the usual dishes done well. Always provides a good meal with solid service. Generous slices of pie and several typical Greek diner selections; gyros baklava etc

Review №32

Love... LOVE COSMOS!!... Always a family atmosphere. The food... FANTASTIC!!... I've ate here several different times and the level of service never disappoints. I LOVE their Lamb Shank. Mouth watering. Cannot go wrong with anything on Cosmo's menu; whether, it's breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Cosmo's Diner is the place.

Review №33

The older female manager It's super rude to people when they walk in no one needs that type of negativity in their life have a good day cosmos

Review №35

Delicious food and great wait staff.

Review №36

Good food & Great people

Review №37

Have been here a couple times with my boyfriend, Troy, when I'm visiting. I love the atmosphere; it feels very much like home. Nothing feels rushed or crowded. Often times, restaurants can get loud and suffocating, but this place is always comfortable and just...a breath of fresh air! If you haven't been or keep driving by and wondering, then wonder no more! Stop in sometime; you won't regret it!

Review №38

Horrible customer service, food is very over priced, and don't understand what extra meat and extra cheese is but hell they will charge you for it anyway!Will never give my business to these greedy people ever again.

Review №39

Breakfast was delicious!!! Best Cream Chipped Beef around. Great way to kick off the new year.

Review №40

Quick stop in first time- lunch to go. Great friendly service with smiles. Chili soup is absolutely fabulous!!!! Fresh, veggie filled chili with that little spicy, yes sooo GoooD, that it will have me coming back for more no doubt. Looking forward to trying other menu items.... I'll update always with pics.

Review №41

Review №45

I had a plate of chicken and dumplings. The portions were awesome. Served very hot, though a little pricey for what I felt was served. Would I go again?? Perhaps

Review №53

It's always a delight treating myself to dinner there; prices are amazing, servers are quick and helpful and the whole cozy and homy ambience is unbeatable (except for their dishes with tomato sauce ️️ it's so good!) Can't recommend it enough

Nice clean place. Good service. Delicious food.

Review №60

Excellent Greek Diner. I had a wonderful Greek salad with the freshest vegetables. Unbelievable. Good tomatoes and cucumbers, exceptional feta cheese, herbs, and dressing. And the olives, the olives were firm and not all cut up and soggy. The grilled chicken breast was very tender. Really great place with kind and friendly staff.

Review №61

I love this Greek restaurant breakfast lunch dinner

Review №62

I enjoy eating here, unfortunately today experience was somewhat different. I had a waitress come outside and ask if her service was poor because we left no tip. I have never experienced this type behavior in any restaurant. I apologize to her and went back and left a tip but she needs to be mindful that she is not guaranteed anything its strictly a customer choice and it wasn't that we didn't want to tip her its just everyone thought the other person left a tip. I'm not posting this to hurt anyone business but she has to be responsible for her action. it was how she approached me not so much what she said. I also don't want her to loose her job just be mindful that your not always going to receive a tip.... Thank you and ever have a great day!

Review №63

I might be a little biased because I grew up in the neighborhood, but I love this place. Something for everyone. When we are going out as a family and trying to decide where to go, inevitably someone throws out Cosmo's and suddenly we are all in agreement.I also waited tables there for a short time. No kitchen horror stories or disgusting food prep issues in the back of the house.Great place, I hope it stays open forever.

Review №64

This place is the perfect diner. Come for the Greek food; stay for the big slices of cake.

Review №65

First time here, went well. Nice seating, kind waitress, tasty food.

Review №66

Very clean and brightly lit. Great senior menu. Servers are very friendly and helpful. Varied menu with some Greek influences, something for any appetite. Delicious chocolate cake!

Review №67

The cream chipped is excellent!

Review №68

Great food. Veggie soup excellent. Early bird specials are easy on the wallet.

Review №69

Good quality authentic greek food with all of the trimmings at an affordable price. Doesn't matter if you're only into American, Greek or AmeriGreek food, Cosmos will surprise you.Real Greek food with 100% authentic flavors.Very nice and upbeat servers and their food from the kitchen is the real deal. I went here with a then current girlfriend from Greece who verified their food and the menu were 100% authentic and even liked the fact their Giro's were not the American fast food version you see at most places.Their prices are better than reasonable and their menu covers a good array of both American and Greek cuisines. Everytime I've been here the food was always cooked perfectly and with both flair and flavor.There's a reason they are one of Delaware's busiest restaurants and it shows in not only their food but also in the service.Even their Greek desserts are delicious and spot on!

Review №70

The onion rings and freshly made ranch dipping sauce alone are enough to keep me coming back. The freshly made, never frozen Angus beef hamburger sealed the deal. All of their food is made fresh daily. Great prices, too!

Review №71

They give you PLENTY of food, ALL desserts are home made, and our main waitress Ms. Donna H is the ABSOLUTE BEST!!

Review №72

One of the best in Delaware consistent fast and a wonderful and Extremely patient waitresses thumbs up

Review №73

We have lived on Broom street for years and always drove by this place thousands of times and never ventured inside. Well I finally did and I love it here. The staff are all friendly and have developed a friendship with their customers. They introduce themselves with a handshake. So cool. The food is good. My son ordered breakfast (pancake with scrambled eggs and bacon and I ordered the crab cakes. Everything cooked to perfection and very tasteful. The crab cakes were delicious, served with mashed potatoes and peas and carrots. Loved it! They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. They have plenty of parking right across the street and have handicap parking right on the side of the building. Very clean. They have fresh cakes and pies as well as an assortment of pastries. So good! I definitely recommend Cosmos to anyone who still enjoys great customer service with a warm smile.

Review №74

Great eats! I always leave a nice tip for Judy. Nice lady and her son Phil is always trying to scam his grandfather out of his house. Even tried to get a loan against the house. So sad.

Review №75

We've never had a bad meal or bad service. It is always an exceptional experience time after time. Love this place!

Review №76

Been going to cosmos for years and service has definitely declined. Just recently went for breakfast one days and sat at a booth and looking around the table next to us had been moved it looked like the floor has not been cleaned in at least 6 months. If that's what the floors in the open look like I'm scared to see the kitchen. We went back for dinner on New Year's Day as we do every year. The waiter claimed she was new brought out a drink and the glass was cracked, someone in the group ordered a cheesesteak and she gave them a chicken cheesesteak she did not know the menu at all. To top it off she put the tip on the check because she has been “shafted” before. Never in the years going here has anyone every done that and I always tip more than 20% but if you can't take the correct order and just adding that on to the check makes me want to tip minimum. I understand that's their living but cmon now. After dinner my husband and I looked at each other and both agreed sadly we don't be going back for some time if ever.

Review №77

OMG the waitress and service is so so slow we waited and waited. So if your not in a hurry then this is the place for. Absolutely a horrible !!!!

The food is wonderful and the help is excellent. You walk in the door and it makes you feel like family. You see so many people that you always see when you visit. A lot of food for your money and they even have a Seniors menu. This is great for seniors. You won't be disappointed. My favorite restaurant.

Review №90

Good food nice place to eat.

Review №91

It's a family operated, very savory and deliciously cooked items. One of my favorites are the calf liver, cooked to your liking. Sauteed in cognac sauces with red onions and mushrooms. Comes with 2 vegies. This is not a small diner. You can get hard liquor, wines and beer. The or d'oeuvres sre exeptio al and come with the old worlds tuch. I would definitely recommend a reservation. You may have to wsit a lot otherwise. The place is awesome and very busy. I am a college graduate snd have been in the business for over 30 years. You know whe you get the best for a great price! Most of the dishes barely go over the $ 10 range. You better get your but right there now! You will be amazed!Happy New Year 2020!
