Always a pleasure!

We have been a few times now and have had the pleasure of dining in the main dining room, the cellar and the "kitchen" upstairs. My cellar is the favorite!

Cotton row is a fine, upscale restaurant in downtown Huntsville. It is a converted cotton trade market building. The inside is quaint, cozy, and comfortable. Our waitstaff was attentive, friendly and knowledgeable about the menu and the buildings' history. We ordered the surf and turf, a tender filet mignon with scallops, fingerling potatoes and asparagus. The menu was quite varied;... More

Our son had proposed to his girlfriend here several months ago. Her family had reserved the table in the private wine cellar so that they could have privacy during the proposal and the celebration dinner. That night, the family hid in another part of the restaurant until after the proposal. Then they all had a great dinner together in the... More

The waiter started by describing the special. It was the filet as described on the menu and scallops. The filet is $35.00 and he added $18.00 for 3 scallops. I was surprised and asked how was that a special. The guy was not pleasant. I asked to see the menu and wasvtalking to my friend stating I do not see... More

Considering the great reviews this place has and how every dish is pretty pricey, I was disappointed in the actually quality of the food and service at this restaurant. I might try this place again, but not on Valentine's Day. It was way too packed! The food was just ok. I've definitely tried better tuna before and the portion for... More

My wife and I met up with her brother and some of his co-workers who were in Huntsville for a conference at Cotton Row. None of us live in Huntsville and had never been there before, so we were relying on ratings to choose a place for us all to have dinner. The menu had a nice range of dishes.... More

First time in Huntsville, and at Cotton Row. All of our meals were excellent. The waiter was charming and attentive..Food came quickly, we were checked on just the right amount of times. I had the fried tomato benedict which was an innovative take on the original. Short rib meat ( in place of ham) was delectable. Moist and flavorful. The... More

My wife and I wanted to do something special for our 27th anniversary, so we decided to splurge and go to Cotton Row. We enjoy dinning at nice restaurants and have done so through the years. Because of this, we had anticipations of what to expect. Let me say this first, before I get to the particulars. We are not... More

Great atmosphere. Romantic setting. Our service was incredible. Wish I had taken note of our servers name. Full wine list with a good selection. Our food was good, not anything to shout about. After reading all of the great reviews I just knew this would be the best steak, ever. It was decent, just not what I had hoped for,... More
