We had a great meal with our two teenage daughters, one is a vegetarian - she enjoyed the butternut squash ravioli. The service was great and we even had a visit from the owner at our table. Nice touch!
Great experience! Went there for the first time for our wedding anniversary. After dinner they brought over two glasses of champagne! Awesome!
I spoke to the manager after my meal. I've been there many times and the food was always outstanding, but something was wrong on 3/5. My Steak Diane was tough and too salty, and the gravy tasted like it came from a can. My husband's regular steak was fine. The manager said your Steak Diane has won many awards, but there must have been a different chef that night or a mess-up in the kitchen. However, I will continue to come to Cotton and order one of the other delicious entrees I've had in the past.
My lamb steak was excellent but my wife's starter, tuna tataki, was oversauced and rather small considering the price. Her entree, one of the specials, namely swordfish, was overcooked, dry and rather tasteless. Overall, we were disappointed in the meal.
We met friends for a casual Saturday night dinner. As soon as we arrived we were escorted to our table. Prompt service. Food was delicious. Atmosphere was great. One of our go to places in Manchester.
My ‘go to’ spot for great food and service. Thanks
Always lovely to dine here. I have been coming here for years and have yet to be disappointed. Reservations are recommended.
The food and service were excellent. It was also a very good value.
Consistently wonderful. Food is terrific. Love the salmon salad and the retro meatloaf
The food was delicious but it was a bit of a disappointment that they closed at 9:30 on a Saturday night
Food is always great! Staff is very accommodating. You definitely get your moneys worth.
The food was wonderful. Our waiter was a bit lackluster. We had a diary allergy at our table and they couldn’t quite seem to grasp what that meant. Kept asking if butter was okay, had no idea which dishes were diary free or could be made diary free. Just kept staring at us blankly when we would ask. Then when it was decided on the steak and asked for a substitute due to the mashed potatoes not being diary friendly they told us there would be an upcharge. One person at our table ordered a second glass of wine and then when the bill came our waiter charged us for two of the more expensive glasses of wine, of which only one was ordered. They said sorry my mistake but it was served so I have to charge you. Even though they brought the wrong glass. Service was frustrating and it damped the birthday dinner celebration.
Been to Cotton a number of times and it never disappoints. Menu doesn't change much but they usually have a great special or two. Service, food and drinks are always consistent.
We keep coming back because Cotton is consistently real good !! Food, service and atmosphere!! We love it😊
Our recent dining experience was excellent, as it always is at Cotton. Courteous, friendly, kind accommodating staff coupled with a cozy atmosphere and reliably good menu and drink selections make this a favorite destination. We love Cotton - it's like being with an old friend - comfortable, delicious, welcoming - a Manchester gem. Thank you Cotton for making our latest visit simply delightful. We'll be back - soon!
Food was well prepared and delicious. Great relaxed atmosphere and the service was excellent. Bar staff made outstanding Martini's. Would highly recommend this restaurant.
Excellent food. The lunch specials are spot-on and great value. The server was fantastic. I seldom give 5⭐️, but Cotton’s staff earned them.
Surprised to learn that this gem is chef owned and 18 years old. The luncheon menu was one of the best we have encountered. We will be back when we are again in Manchester.
Awesome food, some unique offerings. Great cocktails and draft selections.
We were there for my mother's 88th birthday. Our server made sure that my mom's meal was made according to her wishes and she loved it.
Awesome food! We love it!
Amazing food, great service, they would have brought a cake out for my boyfriend if he hadn't been so adamant about no dessert lol.
The only issue was having to wait 15 ish minutes after our reservation time which was 6:45 to be sat due to how busy it was. You could not get in without a reservation until 9pm.
Food was great. Bartender (female) not unfriendly but certainly not welcoming and or overly pleasant. We had one drink each and it felt like we were an inconvenience to her. Same with the waitress. Perhaps they didn’t care for us? Can’t imagine we did anything unpleasant. You can’t like everyone I guess. Would not go back. I did still tip 20+%.
Never a disappointment
Was surprised that there was no bourbon menu where it is so on trend with the Millennial generation. The waitress struggled with what bourbons were available. The food was wonderful and prices were super reasonable. Seemed like it was catering a little more to the older crowd. Very pleased with our first experience and want to try some other things from this restaurant.
First visit here, server Pepper was very friendly and knowledgeable. Nice ambiance, able to have a quiet conversation. Will definitely be back.
Food is awesome, drinks are big and the service is impeccable. Jeff and Peaches run at top notch restaurant..
Valentine’s Day lunch. Would’ve been nice to have a more dinner like special on the menu for the special occasion. Our food was delicious though and enjoyed our meal.
We have enjoyed this restaurant for a couple of years now. Cotton has a friendly host and Karen was a wonderful server. The food is always excellent! This was the first time I ever used Open Table, though. What a great idea! I especially liked that the reservation connected to my calendar. Everything was perfect for our date night.
Our server Margaret was excellent!
Really enjoyed my meal and will definitely be going back.
Restaurant closes at 9:30. Strange when you are out for an evening with friends. Server recommended that we not order more drinks because it was 9:42. My recommendation is to not take reservations at 8:00 if there is a hard close at 8:30.
Good place for an early intimate date. Not a good place for a group of people to enjoy an evening and not the friendliest of wait staff; walked by a group folding napkins on the way out and none of them acknowledged us.
Overall decent experience as food was phenomenal and they were very accommodating on Whole30 requirements . Perhaps just the wrong restaurant for us.
We got together with a couple of friends before a show and all four of our entrees were disappointing. Usually love Cotton but it was a miss this time. I got the ravioli and it must've been sitting under the heat lamps for a while because all my raviolis were dry and hard around the edges.
Amazing food and service. Never a disappointment
I had been there for lunch and decided to go with my husband for a date for dinner on a Saturday . The very long and short of this is, food was very good. Waitress was horrid. She needs a lot more training, didn’t know menu, etc. etc. my husband will not return. Know lots of people who have not experience this, plus my lunch experience was great. Serving are a very good size. So do give it a try, just don’t have Margaret as a waitress. I have emailed restaurant about this issue , so hopefully they will give her some more training.
We totally enjoy this restaurant! The food has consistently been good! The servers are always pleasant and are very good at timing when to serve the entree, etc.
Would highly recommend Beckie.
At the bar, our favorite is Duane. He makes martinis with perfection! And is very conscientious of his guests.
We have brought many friends to Cottons and they we pleased enough to go back again and bring their friends.
Great food and cocktails for a very reasonable price. Wait staff fantastic and we will be back to try more from the menu!
Excellent staff service and food always consistent
Great food as always. Whiskey Smash was really good!
