Cotton Ratings and Reviews
First time there. Wanted to check it out because of all the great reviews. Food was fine, service was adequate, atmosphere was ok. My wife is gluten free and the server made a mistake by bringing a plate with fried risotto under the steak which they were happy to remedy. I wouldn't go out of my way to go back but if I was in the area and wanted a steak I would go.
The service was exceptional The food was fantasric We had people from out of state who loved the atmosphere and the food The lunch was the perfect way to clinch the deal
we appreciated our server she was extrwmely patient and friendly Always polite and attentive yet never interfereing
thank you we will be back
This was my first time dining at Cotton. I thought the service we received was outstanding. I had the jambalaya, which I thought was very tasty with lots of shrimp and sausage. My wife had the steak Diane, which she thought was excellent. My son's girlfriend had the house flat iron steak, which she enjoyed, however the squash dish, not so much. My son had some issues with his lobster & scallop ravioli, but thought it was good. This restaurant is not large and when it got busy the noise level increased as would be expected, but not objectionably so. I thought the restaurant decor was well done and the seating very comfortable. Cotton has what I would term, a high-end bar configured at the upper level of the restaurant. While I didn't spend a great deal of time there, the bartenders I watched knew what they were doing, seemed very personable and had firm control of the customers seated at the bar as well as making sure the wait staff got their drink orders filled quickly. For my first visit to Cotton I give it 4 stars. I will certainly return to this restaurant in the future and would recommend it to anyone looking for a comfortable restaurant with great service and tasty entrees in the Manchester, NH region.
Menu was a bit pricy for some lower cost cuts of steak, Value would help you enjoy a flat iron steak when it's not priced as ribeye/filet.
Had to send a rare side of rare cut back for medium rare request.
Scallops were great, lobster ravioli needs better work on the saffron sauce, the spice wasn't used to its potential here.
Really enjoyed the greens salad, super fresh and satisfying.
Drinks were strong.
Again, if they were to increase their value by either improving the cuts or reducing their prices on their current offerings.. pretty much all their options were the same
Cut with a confusing choice of different sauces. But damn.. the scallops and service really did a lot to help us enjoy it.
Great place. Well trained staff and well prepared and very tasty food. Went there mid-week for business dinner - noise level was low so we could actually hold a conversation. Welcoming and warm staff and prompt service, without interrupting. We will be back.
