Cotton Calf Kitchen
Don’t miss out. If love a great steakhouse, then you’re going to love this one.
we have tried this place twice and left both times not overly impressed. Our most recent visit started with a very poor greeting at the hostess stand. No pleasantries at all- just told to sit and wait to be taken to a table right at 5....it was 4:45. Our server was very nice and pleasant so the evening went fine, but a negative experience at the door certainly can dampen expectations. The food was good, wine was good - I would recommend it if someone was in the area. However I wont drive 45 minutes to have dinner there again.
Had a wonderful time. This is a great neighborhood gem for special occasions and upscale cuisine. The wait staff was excellent - attentive without being intrusive. Food was amazing. Looking forward to our next visit.
Excellent food and service. It's a little pricy for being in the burbs, but well worth it.
My best friend went to lunch the day after Thanksgiving to celebrate my birthday! Ordered dessert, of course, and when the bill came, our waiter (Joel) had subtracted the cost of the dessert -- which was SUPER nice of him. Joel was a terrific waiter. The lobster bisque was delish, but could have been warmer.
And I would like more choices for non-alcohol drinkers: maybe TOST, or a non-alcoholic wine, or flavored seltzers. Some of just don't mix well with alcohol, but still want to enjoy a special beverage. :)
Excellent food and service. A bit pricey but worth it.
We went to CCK for an anniversary dinner and from the moment we entered we felt welcome and honored as guests. The food was the best we had ever had and our service was exceptional. It was decorated so nicely, minimalistic, but enough to make you appreciate everything you saw and experienced at your table. Our service was GREAT - very attentive - yet attentive to our privacy as well, such a great balance. It was pricey, but well worth every penny for special occasions.
Great wine and drinks. Generous portions. Enjoyed the steaks!
Too noisy! We would prefer softer dining music in the seating area & the louder, modern music at the bar. We had trouble hearing the server due to all the conversations going on plus the music. Okay we are old but don't have this problem in other restaurants.
The food was great! I thought it was chintzy to only serve 2 dinky rolls & no offer to refill the bread basket. Although the rolls were great!
Thanks for the free dessert for our anniversary...nice touch.
We will be back!
Absolutely delicious. Everything. Wine, appetizers, enters, sides, and desserts. I’ve never had a bad meal at The Cotton Calf.
Excellent delicious food,service,drinks and ambiance a jewel in Braselton. I WILL be back soon.
Was a great dinner and great service. Can’t wait to return
Hubby and I love this place. We decided to visit again for our anniversary; the food is delicious. Service by Derek was impeccable, he is very attentive and detailed in his service. The owner has an overall great disposition, and that alone makes you want to come back. I had their lobster and I can confidently say that their dish is better than Bones or Marcel. My hubby had the Delmonico Ribeye; the steak cut and taste like butter. We will definitely be back.
Your food is just too rich. Let me give 2 examples. The blt salmon sandwich is much easier to eat and healthier on whole wheat sliced bread. You could not even see the lettuce on my cobb salad (which I only got because I don't eat raw spinach). I have never left half a salad at a restaurant in my life: I left half of it. Here's a third example: the last time we came there--about a year ago--it was a present for our son-in-law, a real foodie. He asked for friend chicken and it came with your tomato basil sauce on top. He was just furious, and didn't eat it and wouldn't return it--because he just wouldn't.
You used to carry a black bean burrito with a side fruit salad. I got it whenever I came--because it was the only healthy, not incredibly rich choice. Would I recommend it? Yes--to people who want a really decadent, rich meal and don't care about the calories, and because your restaurant has a lovely ambience. To be clear: your food DOES taste good. It's just too rich.
Note: our server, Richard, was a delight.
Had shrimp cocktail and lump crabmeat cocktails for appetizers, steak and pork chop for entrees with wonderful creamed spinach! Love Cotton Calf, never disappoints on food or drinks!
It was a wonderful dining experience. Our waiter took great care of us and other servers stopped by to pick up plates. The manager even came by to check on us.
The food was delicious. Easily the best dining experience we have had in a while.
My wife and I had our anniversary dinner here. First time and was recommended by friends. There are two reasons I would return, the service provided by Kat, and the wonderful meal. The food was absolutely amazing, but the service far outweighed the meal. Thank you Kat and thank you Cotton Calf for the amazing meal!
Food was terrible in taste...
This is an awesome place tucked away in Braselton, GA. Excellent service and food. Saturday night is not the night to go for a quiet dinner. It's extremely loud with very poor acoustics.
Waiter and staff were amazing. Extremely friendly and great environment. The food was unbelievably good and worth every penny. I will share this place with people I know.
Steaks were fantastic! The shrimp cocktail looked like crab legs! They were huge and and plentiful to share. From the wine list to the bourbon cocktails, the drinks were beyond expectations! The desserts were beautifully presented and delicious. Our severs ( I’m sorry I am not naming them, but I cannot remember their names) made our entire dining experience a pleasure. Please make a point of visiting this wonderful and quant restaurant! I promise you will not be disappointed!
We asked for the meal to take time, we were celebrating our anniversary. But that ask was left on deaf ears. Even after the first appetizer was at our table in the first few minutes I let them know we don’t want to be rushed through this dinner. But like I said it fell on deaf ears.
With that said the food was excellent and prepared just as asked.
Our server Devin is amazing. This is the second time that he has served my work crew. Thank you!
Food was great and server very good.
Awesome in every way
This is my favorite restaurant in Braselton. And I don't have to drive to Buckhead for fine dining, it is in my backyard.
This was the first time my family and I have had the Sunday brunch and it will not be the last time!
My wife had the Crab Cakes Benedict, my daughter had the Strawberry Stuffed French Toast while I had the Steak and Eggs. All three dishes were great!
Always enjoy Cotton Calf. First time visiting for brunch. Service was great. Food was a bit cold when it was served but the staff remade the dishes and offered a free round of drinks.
Everything was terrific! The portions were generous and the service was just right. The sides are large and can be shared. The steaks were cooked exactly as we requested and were very flavorful. We ordered some cocktails at the bar before being seated and they were interesting and unique. We couldn't have had a better experience, we'll definitely be back!
Service from Matt’s was excellent, food and atmosphere was great as well.
My wife and I both had the filet with mashed potatoes and mushrooms. The food was amazing. Salad and bacon wrapped scallops were also delicious!
We were first-time visitors.
Your restaurant had been ranked high and we selected it for a special birthday celebration. It is a lovely space.
Upon arrival, we were taken to a table in the rear of the restaurant adjacent to the restroom and next to the empty overflow room. We passed several empty tables that were quite nice – banquette seating on the left of the restaurant. I mentioned to the hostess that we were celebrating my husband's birthday but she didn't make any concession and seated us in a less than desirable location.
Our meal was adequate but did not live up to the hype – we were underwhelmed. Our server was professional, attentive and knowledgable about the menu but after two tables of diners arrived for seating in the overflow room, he lost interest. We left a 20% tip but we will not recommend this restaurant to friends. I am hoping this might have been an off night.
We were celebrating our 51st wedding anniversary and this was our first experience at Cotton Calf. Nicholas took very good care of us and our filets were delicious, cooked to perfection. We also had a calamari appetizer and a side of Brussel sprouts, all very scrumptious. Our martinis were also top notch. Lastly, we split a wonderful piece of cheesecake and were pleasantly surprised that it was on the house! We will definitely be returning to Cotton Calf soon. If you live in the Flowery Branch or Braselton area, there’s no need to hunt elsewhere for a fine steak and lovely dining experience.
Wonderful experience! Definitely will go back! The food was amazing and the service was just as wonderful!
The restaurant is beautiful and the service was outstanding. Our meals were great. Our server, Nicholas, was fantastic. He catered to every request and was very friendly. This was my second visit and won’t be my last. We were visiting Braselton to attend the arts festival, which was wonderful.
Everything was perfect for our anniversary dinner!
Wife and I visited Cotton Calf for our anniversary (second consecutive year) and had a wonderful experience. Seated right away (we had a reservation), attentive and friendly service, and food to die for. We each had a steak (I had the strip, she the filet) served as the chef's special with lump crab meat on top and a bernaise sauce over sauteed asparagus. Sauteed mushrooms on the side, a crab cake for appetizer, and a piece of red velvet cake compliments of the manager for our anniversary dessert. Good wine and spirits selection. Prices are high, but quality is excellent. Cotton Calf has become our go-to celebratory occasion restaurant.
A hidden gem. Amazing food and service. Will be back.
Always a good experience. Kathleen was very knowledgeable and prompt with service. Requested a booth and sat across from the kitchen. Staff puts on a great show as you are waiting for your meal. Excellent wines by the glass menu. Will visit again soon.
Thee steak was outstanding. The shrimp cocktail was very large but tasteless
The entire experience was fantastic. From the moment we walked into the door the enjoyable experience began.
