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.

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.

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+%.

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.

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.
