Food was ok. The restaurant is beautiful and nice for a date night or private celebration. The waitress I had was not attentive. She was giving more attention to the older couple who sat after us. We were not existent to her or anyone who walk by.
We always have good food and a good time at Cotton.
Service is prompt.
The appetizers are delicious and varied for whatever you might like.
The food is prepared as requested and the table is served when the entrees are ready.
The chefs take pride in the quality of the dish and it’s presentation.
Excellent food! Consistently good service. Strong drinks!!
The scallop appetizer was amazing! Nice quiet atmosphere for the late afternoon dining experience.
Amazing Food & Amazing Service! Don’t pass up this Gourmet American dining spot if you pass through or live in Manchester, NH!
Cotton is our "Go-To" restaurant for special occasions, we love it there. Atmosphere is what I would consider upscale casual, or non-stuffy special, somewhere in between. The staff always treats you like it is a special occasion, even if it isn't. The food is fantastic, the menu is a 1 page menu, so each meal is prepared with perfection. For apps/starters menu, the baked goat cheese is highly recommended.
Anniversary dinner with kids
Food was good. Chicken and meatloaf tasty as were the potatoes.
Service was slow despite the restaurant being nearly empty. Still the server managed to insult in the empty restaurant by rushing us along. When one of us want dine (with fork in mouth) , he asked if we were finished. We were approaching but not at their 90-mon limit. Again, with Z9% of the tables open he rushes us out. Not cool.
The food was excellent and the service was great! Will definitely return.
The food was excellent! We ordered crab cakes, goat cheese dip, fried chicken and scallops. Everything was so good and the service was great too. We will definitely be coming back!
Always a pleasure!
Food and service were excellent as always. Cotton is one of our favorite restaurants.
We keep returning to Cotton because the food is excellent, and the service is great.
We have never had less than an excellent meal and when we bring guests they rave about Cotton as well.
The food is always delicious. The servers are very friendly.
We enjoy a delicious dining experience. Enjoyed salmon and lamb chops plus amazing crab cakes appetizer. Our server, Jules, was friendly, knowledgeable and right on. Amazing cocktails too!
Great spot, great food, and the staff is super friendly.
Great service, great atmosphere, great food, owners even came over to say they appreciated us being there.
Exactly what I needed. A nice quiet dinner with excellent customer service! Love it! See you soon.

Cotton never disappoints- in over 20 years of dining I have never had even a mediocre meal. Great food perfectly prepared,
The atmosphere is warm and soft, the COVID protocols first rate and the service was excellent
Best pot stickers in New England
The scallops and sweet potato hash- a staple- is worth the trip
loved it, a special treat. We cleaned out plates, but wish we saved room for dessert. The food is always a consistent quality
Absolutely fantastic restaurant! It was our anniversary and that was passed on to everyone right away. My wife is allergic to peppers and all staff were on top of letting us know about our food choices. Thank you SO MUCH!!
We stopped at Cotton whenever we are traveling out of the Manchester airport. It is a wonderful place with great Atmosphere and top quality food
We were excited to return to Cotton for a friend’s birthday dinner. As always, food was terrific. The downside was the 90-minute limit for sitting at the table. The server reminded us of the time limit a few times, which stressed us out. We were watching the clock rather than enjoying our meal. At the end of dinner -knowing that it was a birthday celebration - she said “I can’t offer dessert because you’ve exceeded your time limit”. So much for a nice evening. We paid and went to Giorgio’s for drinks and dessert. Perhaps we should have just done Giorgio’s to begin with. I’ll return to Cotton but only after they lift the time restriction.
Amazing, consistently delicious food, wonderful service, and felt very safe and spaced out in the environment during COVID. Love love the potstickers appetizer...you may want two servings! Caesar dressing was authentic and homemade and traditions garden salad was fresh with great balsamic dressing. Our go to entree I’d always the lobster scallop ravioli.
Scooter the server was fantastic. Consistently great throughout the years.
Been to cotton many times. We entered the building and there was a wait with 6 to 8 people in a small area. They need to clean that up. When we were seated we were told the table is good for 90 min. More on that later. That would have been helpful to know when making the reservation. Apps, salad, main meal, and drinks were outstanding. Service spectacular. Now comes the 90 min rule. We were OK because we didn't order dessert.
However, I noticed the couple across from us was asked to leave when they haven't finished their dessert and drinks. The woman actually chucked down her martini. While it didn't affect me, I just thought that was just wrong. They probably spent around $150.00 and couldn't enjoy the rest of the meal. Cotton was always a classy place not anymore if they are treating guess that way. Makes you think if its worth going back??
Excellent meals. Wife had demonic steak and Ceasars salad. I had salmon and lettuce wedge. The bacon on the lettuce wedge was absolutely to die for. Our waiter was outstanding and did not rush us even though we were the last to leave that night.
It was absolutely fantastic. Highest compliments to the chef, the food is out of this world!! The service was amazing too, their recommendations and conversation added greatly to our experience! Will most certainly come again!
What we love most is consistency of quality food and service. We are so thankful to have had the pleasure of getting to know Becky - a fabulous all around person - talented server and bartender! We are sad to see her leave but so happy to have met her and wish her the best. We look forward to our next night at cotton and getting to know other servers!
We enjoyed our evening out. Felt safe and everything was great.
My birthday dinner was fabulous. This has been our special occasion place for years now and it never disappoints. Great food and wine. See you again soon!
