My husband and I love Cotton, have visited many times, and have submitted more than one review. Our visit tonight was just as outstanding as previous ones. We both ordered the evening's special, which was a shrimp and scallop pesto dish. It was delicious. Another thing I really appreciate about Cotton is their willingness to accommodate. I'm not a big fan of scallops so I inquired about double shrimp -- no problem at all for them. The drinks are terrific, tonight we had their signature manhattan and spiced pear nectar martini. And of course the potstickers appetizer. And the restaurant is so clean and stylish. After a very tough week, our visit was a much-needed distraction and we couldn't have been happier to have gotten our "attitude adjustment" there. We will, of course, be back. It's never a question of 'if' -- just a question of 'when'.

It was my wife’s birthday. The martini sampler and toasted coconut martini were great, and the food was awesome

Cocktail list was impressive and the few that I sampled were quite tasty. We share our foods and there were 5 of us. I thought all of the appetizer's and the entrees were great. I look forward to returning when we are back in Manchester.

Very good quality in preparation, serving and ambiance. Love the Steak Diane here. It's one of a very few places that serves it. Parking is free and easy. Closeness to downtown makes it ideal for lunch and dinner while visiting the center of Manchester.

We celebrated New Year’s Eve with another couple at Cotton. We expected to be rushed out so that the tables could be turned…we were pleasantly surprised that Cotton only booked one seating for the entire night.

There was a special New Year’s Eve menu, that satisfied all 4 of us. As vegetarians my friend and I selected the acorn squash which was huge and delectable. My husband had the onion apple cider soup and the pork chop. His mouth was watering, and he described his meal as “YUMMY”. Our friend had the onion apple cider soup and the swordfish and was bowled over by how good it was. For dessert we had the apple gallett which was incredible, and our friend had a chocolate bomb which he swooned over.

Our server was Scooter and she made us feel like the only ones in the restaurant. Her recommendations were accurate and our water glasses were never less than full – even after we paid the bill.

Good food, friendly service, a little noisy. Food delicious, but a little rich, lot of butter.
