Parking could be a bit better and tables for 2 a bit bigger or at least spaced out a little more. Overall very good.

The food was outstanding! Service great! The noise level was high for our friend and husband. They were unable to hear the conversation. Would rather sit away from the bar next time

Was in for our 35th anniversary. Had a great meal, Delmonico's were good but would have preferred some options of 10oz filets. Don't know what the put in the whipped potatoes but both my wife and I commented as best ever potatoes mashed or whipped.

I have given your crab cakes a few chances to improve, and still they are not good. They are super fishy and mushy.

It was a busy Saturday night but it was a great dining experience. The food was fabulous, our server was very attentive (but not too much!). Great value. We had to wait maybe 5 minutes for our table, easy parking.
Definitely going back.

Love this place! Louise was our waitress and was fantastic! Loved our meals- Steak William special and the seafood linguine. The steak was amazing- cooked perfectly and melt in your mouth! Beautiful atmosphere and was a bit loud this time as the place was full. Never a disappointment here-one of our favorites!

The food was very good and the quality excellent. However, the service was very slow. It took us an hour after we ordered to get our food.
I've been there before and I will try them again. Disappointed with our visit.

This is becoming one of my favorite places to have a great meal. You walk into the restaurant and admittedly the front entrance is nothing but once inside you are greeted by the owners and that’s when great thing begin! The waitstaff has been great and the food is great comfort food at reasonable prices. The menu is not huge but trust me you won’t have a complaint! If you do, I would say to ask for the owner and explain what isn’t right and I am sure they will make it right.

I hope that they will continue to be there as this is truly what makes anyplace work like it does at Cotton.

Once again one of my better dining experiences. Never was a salmon fan but have had it the last 2 time I’ve been to Cotton. Each time it was prepared differently and was amazing! The atmosphere is perfect and the service is great.

Great place to eat. Love their delmonico steak. However the last time I went our waiter seemed a little too arrogant, and tried correcting me on the name of the wine I wanted to select, also stating it wasn't a good one to choose... It was a very odd experience. An Argentinian wine shouldn't be pronounce like it's French bud...learn your wines.

I enjoyed the food but felt that the tables were too close to each other. I felt the price of the food that there should be more room between the tables. Felt like the couple next to us was with us.

Best value spot I’ve even been to. Between 3 cocktails, an appetizer, an espresso martini and dessert we spent 119.00 not including tip. Food was outrageously good and I was shocked when I got the bill. I was expecting a lot more money for our meal. Will go back for sure!

Pre-Valentine Day dinner. Excellent meal. Server (Becky D). was outstanding: timely, very efficient, affable. And very attentive (water glasses were refilled quickly). I chose the buttermilk herbed fried chicken—delicious, perfectly prepared; my wife had the almond-crusted turkey schnitzel, also excellent.
