Wonderful evening eating outdoors with live music in the background. The duck and the halibut was amazing. Looking forward to our next visit
Excellent food and staff!
Complete rip off and horrible service. The server didn’t even introduce herself. The SA was better than her. They also didn’t have champagne on the table like they were supposed to. When I spend $142 on dinner I expect PERFECTION.
As always, the food was fantastic. There was an acoustic guitar player/ singer providing excellent entertainment. Service was impeccable.
Wonderful dinner outdoors. Food was great from start to finish.
We loved the cold blue crab and pickled shrimp salad!
Excellent food and service. We were two in my party. I had the duck and my friend the halibut. We left nothing in our plates and it was enough food served.We split a salad which, as the main course, was delicious and enough. For closure we split the espresso cake...well this could not have been a better choice and of course coffee. Our wine.. Chilean Cono Sur..white.. we ll be back..$$ worth it.
Outdoor dinner with a friend. Always so nice.
I have always been a big fan of Cotton Row, but last night was one of the best meals ever. I ordered the Steelhead Trout - special on the night. And it was truly the best I have ever eaten.
They are very sensitive to our gluten free needs. This is a special place!
One of our favorite restaurants in Huntsville. Always satisfied when we dine here. The food is amazing and the atmosphere is lovely.
I was excited to try Cotton Row for the first time. My husband made the reservations for August 27, 2020 and since someone reserved the entire first floor we were seated on the second floor in private dining which was a cozy and beautiful area.
I’ll start with the positives and that is our dinners were delicious and our cocktails were perfect! Upon arriving the man that greeted us and took us to our table was very friendly, made us feel welcome and wished me a Happy Birthday.
My husband ordered “Seared Cape Cod Sea Scallops” and I ordered “The Alaskan Halibut.” The scallops were seared to perfection & flavorful. The halibut was a very moist, delicious piece of fish served with perfectly cooked risotto. Again 5+++ stars to the chef & mixologist!
The downside was our service. Once we were seated our server Christian came up to the table handed us our menus and asked if we wanted drinks. There was not a friendly “Hi” or a casual conversation to start our dinner off. I mentioned my husband brought me there for my birthday and we were excited to try Cotton Row for the first time. He stared blankly at me with his mask on. He said he’d be back to take our drink orders.
The tone was set which also kept our ordering to a minimum.
We were looking forward to a before dinner drink, appetizers, soup or salad and a dinner drink with our entrees. What we did instead was order one drink each and our entrees.
Our server did not recommend or suggest any appetizers, he did not let us know about any specialty entrees and pretty much was there to do the basics of his job which he did. To take a quote from J. Peterman from Seinfeld “Job done.”
We have been trying more restaurants in our hometown (23+ years) of Madison County since COVID19 hit otherwise we usually spend special occasions such as birthdays and our anniversary in downtown Nashville dining at The Southern or The Farmhouse. The service was a 180 of what we are used to at a high end restaurant.
We got to sit downstairs in the wine cellar. It was really a neat experience setting down there. The food was fantastic. We were visiting from out of town and will definitely go back!
Amazing as always!! Food , service were great!! Thank you do much!!
Exceptionable service!! My new favorite place!!!!!
As always, the food was delicious and the service was very nice.
Superb as usual.
Good food, good atmosphere, but a tad high priced for what it is. I could recommend 3 other high end local restaurants that have better food for a better price point. All in all, it's a nice place and I would eat here again.
Excellent food- we ate on the patio and the ambience was wmderfil, our waiter was extra attentive, and the food, as always, was amazing.
Great food and drinks. Had all diners distanced well. Highly recommend for a nice dinner out.
Halibut was re best we’ve ever had. And the beautiful tomato peach salad was delicious!
Excellent food and atmosphere
A very good restaurant in a nice location. Eat outside if you can or toward the front. The back half seems a bit claustrophobic to me. I have perfectly cooked halibut. It's pricey but you do seem to get what you pay for. I've been several times and I'll be back.
Salmon was Amazing! Nice restaurant for our 1st wedding anniversary! Would highly recommend ☆☆☆☆☆
Amazing as always!!!
200$ tab, waited 24 mins for drinks. Food was subpar. Service was awful. We had to speak up to have a conversation. Not at all what it used to be. The bar was full of a bunch of loud drunks.
My husband took me to Cotton Row for my birthday. We were seated immediately upon arrival, on the patio, as requested. All servers wore masks and the tables were well spaced. Our server was very polite and attentive. We had the Grilled Hearts of Romaine Salad, Cornmeal Crusted Oysters, Dashi Braised Halibut, Grilled Prime Filet, and Crème Brûlée. Each course was delicious and well timed. My birthday dessert was delivered with a candle and "Happy Birthday" on the plate in chocolate. There was also live music and the kind musician (singer with guitar) sang Happy Birthday to me. It was our first night out for dinner in 4 months, and everything was perfect. I would recommend Cotton Row to anyone who enjoys an exceptional meal and polished service.
Excellent date night! The cocktails are incredible, and the entrees are perfect. It's expensive, but worth it for a special occasion, or just because :)
The dining room was fairly empty and quiet which made for an enjoyable evening. However the food took over 40 minutes to come out to the table when we ordered.
Absolutely a wonderful experience!!! We cant wait to go back
It's perfect for any occasion or no occasion! Delicious food! Great staff! Perfect location!
The food and staff were great. The staff went the extra mile to ensure my wife had a great birthday experience! Will definitely be back!
The chowder was a little bland. The rest of the experience, including the dirty martinis and Chilean wine, was just what we were looking for. Excellent scallops.
The food was perfect and well seasoned and cooked to perfection! Great wine selection and cocktails and the service is on point! We went there for our 3 year wedding anniversary and everything was perfect to us! Can’t say anything but praises for this restaurant, we will definitely be back.
We ate outside, it was very pleasant. Not crowded at all, was early on a Tuesday evening. The foie gras was amazing! Short ribs were excellent, fish was mediocre. Heirloom tomato salad with buratta cheese was delicious.
Terrific restaurant in downtown Huntsville! Try it, you'll like it. Thanks, AJ.
The atmosphere is quaint, but the food lacked flair and flavor. I expected a little more innovative take on the standard fare.
Foie Gras was fabulous!
Everything was very good and our waiter was Great!
Lovely place to eat in downtown Huntsville. Took visitors from out of town and they loved it!
