great service and food.Meal was great, service was great, desert was great.
Will be back.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMNever disappoints!Two of my guests had never been to COTTON before and they loved their food and desert. Everything I recommend I KNOW will be excellent.6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food!As usual we enjoyed our meal experience. However, not everything got our usual five-star rating. The waitress seemed sort of absent causing the hostess to step in to help. Glad she did,though! The food didn't live up to everyone's expectations either. Maybe out love affair with this restaurant is over? Will have to give it another chance I think!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMOur experienceWe've eaten here often and keep coming back. there isn't a bad item on the menu and would strongly recommend it.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellentThe food was wonderful and the environment was calm and great for chatting.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMLove it!I love everything about it! food and service are always outstanding!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful as alwaysWe have been going here for over fifteen years and it never disappoints. We have tried many things on the menu and they are all good.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMVery goodEnjoyed my experience here. Good food and adequate service for what you'd expect from the price. My date had the grilled chicken and really enjoyed it. I had the pork saltimboca, which was good, but a little fattier than my tastes enjoy. I am very particular about this to be honest. It's a nice place I would definitely recommend anytime, but not my favorite. Great drink menu. I loved the espresso martini and glass of Riesling I had. My date really enjoyed her Pinot Grigio.
Excellent drink menu***5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways goodFood and service are always good here and they are very accomodating. A great place to take a client or have lunch with the girls. Good variety of food and very consistent.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMSimple and effectiveReally liked the building, great room, food was excellent, though the menu has a few options.. The Wedge, really this is circa 1990 lose it, steak I had was incredible, vegetables were fresh and very tasty.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMCold rainy nightWe went for a date, the first time we've been there,so we had the recommended dishes, the meatloaf ( very good ) , and butternut squash ravioli, ( good, but very sweet , not what expected) It was reasonably priced , and we had cocktails , paid only $60.00.
We will go back and try something else next time.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistentI always have a great meal at Cotton. I begin with a Cosmo (made to perfection),and often order salmon or scallops and I have never been disappointed..The ambience is relaxing..not noisy and I never feel rushed. The staff are all professional without being stuffy.
Cotton is a wonderful place to dine....5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent!Great outdoor dining experience! Wait staff was very attentive and food was excellent!5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMCotton is as reliable as ever.Cotton is as reliable as ever. It is as good as ever. Food menu hasn't changed much over the years. The cocktail menu is ever changing and is outstanding. We have always used Cotton as a safe fall back.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMReturning customersIt's the one place that we defer to as our "special night out" restaurant for the few times we can get out without the kids. It is ALWAY consistent and delicious. We have NEVER been disappointed.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMI really enjoy CottonIn my experience, the food is delicious, the service is polite and helpful, and the atmosphere provides for a comfortable eating environment. I've eaten at Cotton three time and each time I thoroughly enjoyed the food and the experience.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place to celebrate!We wanted a special dinner to celebrate our daughter's graduation from college. We aren't from the area, so we were taking a chance when we made reservations. Cotton was wonderful! Food, service etc. outstanding!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMCotton- Solid DecisionCotton is an upscale restaurant offering modern food more on the trendy side. To start, they have a great list of house made cocktails, which I thoroughly enjoyed. Try the basil blueberry majito. The appetizers were also quite good, although the peanut chicken skewers were just average so I wouldn't order them again. Our group of 4 all enjoyed out entrees.
Really awesome outdoor space is available, so I would recommend sitting out there if you get the chance.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMmom dayit was a wonderful day. no complaints at all about any food. totally enjoyed every minute great wait staff. will definitely be back.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMDeliciousGoing to Cotton for Mother's Day was a wonderful idea!! There were so many choices on the menu that we all wanted to try.
Everyone loved their food - the portions were plentiful and the food delicious. We will have to return to try them all.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for Mother's DayThis is a very good/excellent restaurant! All five of us had something different so we had a good sampling from the menu. Everyone was very pleased with their dishes. The meatloaf was a winner "tasted like steak", and the lamb steak was great too! Over all the menu has a good variety, and the atmosphere was pleasant. We would all recommend Cotton to our friends.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMnever dissapointsCotton has warm ambiance, great service and a wonderful menu that is well executed.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMVery HappyWith the only flaws(which are pretty minor) being that the Hostess was a little rude and the waiter was very disinterested in us, the food was excellent. The drinks were good and strong, and everything from the salads to the apps to the main course and then the desert was excellent. The Rhode Island Calamari was done well, I got the Grilled lamb which was cooked perfectly(the best Medium Rare i've probably seen going out) and the Bananas Fosters Bread Pudding was flavorful and done pretty well. All and all, I will be dining here again and I recommend giving it a chance if you're in the area.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food....must visitReally like their seafood (scallop fries) and Goat steak. Very fresh food and tasty.Infact I have been there only two times so far ,but will go again as long as I am in Manchester.
The waiters are very friendly and cordial.My waitress Catherene needs a special remark for suggesting great food for me. I would ask for her next time.
I recommend this place to all my friends and look forward to go there again.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMlong time no seeAdmittedly we have not been to your restaurant for a couple of years, no reason.
A bit tired of the place we go to here in Concord we decided to come down the other night.
We had forgotten how much we enjoyed your facility, the atmosphere, the service and the food are all top notch.
The prices are well within reason for the amount of food provided, although we didn't leave room for desert.
Safe to say it will not be long until our return trip, look forward to seeing you soon!
Thanks for a great night.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyableHad a very nice meal with friends. Everyone enjoyed their meal and it was very comfortable. Have been to Cotton a number of times for lunch but had not been for dinner is soem time. Ambiance is inviting and I will return.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMA great experience again!Our fifth time here and as always, attentive service, food cooked perfectly and the atmosphere great. I highly recommend Cotton to anyone.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food as always was veryThe food as always was very good. The way some of the seating is set up, you do feel like you are lined up in a cafeteria. We felt our server was dealing with too many tables. She was always moving and taking care of someone, but we waited a long time for her to check back and too get the bill. We opted not to stay for dessert.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMA wonderful night out.My husband and I had our 2nd wedding anniversary this weekend. The typical gift for the 2nd year is Cotton. We thought it would be a fun idea to go to a place named Cotton instead. It was a fantastic choice! From the moment we walked in we were thrilled! The decor was lovely and we were greeted warmly. I had ordered flowers to be delivered to the restaurant and they were on the table when we arrived. Our server, Anthony, was spot on! He was attentive and helpful, with a wonderful table side manner. He even brought us champagne for the special occasion. The food was delicious and fresh. I think I could have had two servings of the crab cakes they were so good! Overall the night was wonderful and we will be back!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food and Great ServiceMy wife and I first went to Cotton about 10 years ago. And while it's menu seem to have lost some of it's fusion flare the quality of your meal and the service are exceptional.
We always start with the Pot Stickers as they are my wife's favorite. These mini pork dumplings are pan seared, not deep fried, and are delicious.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent restaurantWe had a great dinner here on a beautiful spring evening. We had outdoor seating which is very private. The food and service was excellent. I especially loved the crab cakes and the Martini's are fantastic.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMIt is very friendly, the serverIt is very friendly, the server was knowledgeable and effecient. Everythig we ordered was very tasty.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWhenever someone from outWhenever someone from out of town asks me where to go in Manchester, I recommend Cotton, I always have a great meal there. Nice atmosphere, and plenty of parking. I don't think there's a better value around, and I like that they change the menu up, but always have a few staples they keep - gotta love that meatloaf during the cold weather. Some of of my friends that I was with last week had never been there, and all were really pleased.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMCotton continues to have aCotton continues to have a wonderful relaxing setting with good food options at a great price.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMTessyFirst time & we really enjoyed our dining experience. Drinks were great too! As a family of four which includes two teenagers, I would say, it is suitable & enjoyable for the younger ones..... Our waitress was friendly & checked on us just the right amount of times, great service!4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMOur first time there. We wereOur first time there. We were very impressed and will definitely return. Delicious food and very attentive waitress!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, but I would notGreat food, but I would not do dinner service there again due to the price. There should be some lower cost entree's available for those who wish them.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMRestaurant was overall excellent,Restaurant was overall excellent, however, most of the tables seat you side by side and elbow to elbow with other tables and diners.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThis restaurant has maintainedThis restaurant has maintained a consistent level of good food and outstanding service for more than a decade. There are plenty of entree options to choose from (and always interesting specials), a great wine list, a well-stocked bar, and always a knowledgeable, friendly, and professional waitstaff. When you leave Cotton, you say, "You know, that was really nice. Let's come back here more often." I do.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGirls night out; we lovedGirls night out; we loved the atmosphere and the food!! Good, healthy options!!4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were with friends fromWe were with friends from Chicago...did let the waitress know we were not in a hurry and she was very good....we did do a lot of chatting....food was excellent, atmosphere and attention to detail by the waitress was great....we were able to enjoy a last cocktail after paying our bill and did not have to rush....we enjoyed our visit very much.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMVery nice experience and staffVery nice experience and staff was great and very welcoming. It was our anniversary and they recognized that. They supplied a complimentary glass of champagne. Very nice gesture........4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMone of us ordered the friedone of us ordered the fried chicken & mashed. the service was very efficient and the dish was superb; nice crunch with moist, succulent chicken and the mashed were relish. pan seared scallops always perfectly done here. chicken satay was a little overdone but the peanut sauce is liquid gold. some lovely wine choices with pairing notes. we love Cotton for both the special occasion and just because.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious food, fantasticDelicious food, fantastic service, and well-crafted cocktails. What more can you ask for? As usual, the lamb was done to perfection. The staff is very nice about making alterations/substitutions, as well. The chocolate brownie sundae was decadent and balanced - and scrumptious. This restaurant was perfect for a double date before a big night out at a gala - vibrant enough to have a fun atmosphere but quiet enough to allow for an intimate dinner and non-shouting conversation.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMVery nice restaurant!Food and service really great. Menu offered many choices - most anyone could find something they liked. We had steaks , both perfectly cooked. They had an excellent martini and cocktail list - lots of unique offerings.
Regarding wine, we found the list to be a bit small. most of the wine was primarily from Californi, not many european offerings. We still were able to find something we liked, just figured I'd mention it in case there are those of you out there that are looking for a more comprehensive wine list.
The seats were a bit close so not sure if it's a great 'romantic' destination. They have an outside patio that looks like it's great once the weather warms up.
Overall a great night, we'll return and also recommend to friend4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding !!always a great time at cotton ,the food the atmosphere ,very livley

The food was outstanding, especially the baked goat cheese appetizer and my turkey schnitzel entree. Our server was also the bartender, and she managed to do both in a very efficient manner (plus, she never lost her smile). I highly recommend Cotton if you live in, or plan to visit, the Manchester NH area.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have always enjoyed dinnerWe have always enjoyed dinner at Cotton, and our latest experience didn't disappoint.
