Small family-run restaurants that serve European food are rare in this area, so we are delighted to add the Cosmopolitan to our dining options. Food offerings include some Greek, German, Bosnian and American fare, all of which are tasty and served in large portions. We most recently had the schnitzel with spaetzle and the german cheese cake. All were delicious.... More

My husband and I love food and traveling. Imagine my surprise when my brother suggested this restaurant on our recent visit with him. I admit to being a snob when it comes to restaurants in strip malls, but never again. This place blew us away!!! The food was downright awesome and the service was stellar. The spaetzle was mind altering,... More

What a fantastic dinner! This coming from a family who spent 3 years in Germany! Authentic German food, fantastic service. My husband had the stuffed veal which was amazing. I personally felt the potato were under-seasoned (but still were very tasty!). I had the schnitzel (wein art) and it tasted like many I had in Bavaria. Absolutely delicious--with better fries...

I go to this restaurant very often. Why? iReasonable prices are a start. But most importantly it has never in many, many visits has it produced any thing but an excellent meal. I love the goulash,tasty. The salads are always fresh made with very good ingredients. Simple. And the dressing is understated simple but so very good. I hope you... More

The Cosmopolitan is clustered in a nondescript shopping mall south of Alexandria on Route 1. The rather sparse setting is not indicative of the quality of food that it offers daily. Family-owned and operated, it specializes in Balkan cuisine with a touch of German as well. Its limited menu focuses on some of the best area dishes with veal leading... More

Cosmopolitan Grill was not what I expected. Much too good to be stuck in a strip mall!! My husband and I both had a salad with grilled chicken. The salad was fresh and had a simple dressing. The chicken was lightly seasoned and served off to the side of the salad on a large dish. It tasted like something I... More

Stumbled upon this restaurant on a recent Saturday. What a find! The servings are generous, the food is delicious (mussels and shrimp appetizer!), and the service was fantastic. Tucked away in a strip mall off a highway full of fast-food joints (very typical of Northern Virginia!), this is definitely on our must-eat-at-again list. The place is larger than you think... More
