Amazing

This is a favorite! The food, service and atmosphere are amazing. Yes, it is pricy...but well worth it. With its private dining room upstairs it's the perfect place for a party or other celebration! If you haven't been here... It's a must!😃

Service was good, alcohol selection was underwhelming and overpriced, bill was shockingly high, but seriously, I can't make mushroom risotto that awesome. That stuff is like a hug from the Lord.

Cotton Row is a very special place! The chef is the world renowned James Boyce, owner of several restaurants and guest chef on the Today Show. The setting is a carefully renovated old building in the heart of the city. Exposed brick walls and beams create a truly charming effect. The cellar holds an intimate private dining room and the...

My husband and I enjoyed our dinner at Cotton Row very much. A friend told us that we couldn't leave Huntsville without dining here. While I don't remember exactly what we had -- I know we loved it all. We shared two appetizers and an entree. I do remember that our entree was beef short ribs on a bed of... More

Went here after a Ron White show on a recommendation from a local. Could not not have been a better experience. The food, wine and service was on point. I can't remember every item I tried but there is not a single one I would hesitate ordering again. Everything was perfectly prepared and served. This is a definite must while... More

This is an excellent dining experience from the ambiance, the service, to the food. Everyone at our table loved their dishes. And the desserts are amazing!

I think its safe to say that this is top of the line in Huntsville - and they deliver. Southern cooking taking to a fine dining setting. Ask your waiter for a trip to the wine cellar - its cool to see the original buildings and the history of the building.

I have been lucky enough to dine at Cotton five or six times now, and every time it has been consistently spectacular. Cotton Row is definitely one of the best restaurants in Alabama and at the top of the Huntsville food scene. It is a fine dinning restaurant that's great for any special occasion. Their menu has a lot of... More

We found this restaurant on open table. We heard good things about the food and the atmosphere. We were not disappointed. The food was excellent and the service was first class. It is situated in downtown Huntsville across from the courthouse. The atmosphere is very romantic. The is well presented and is excellent.

This restaurant has a beautiful ambiance and excellent food. I am a vegan and was able to find a salad to eat. I was pleasantly surprised that they had absinthe and enjoyed a cocktail with it. Bottomline: the food was great and the service was excellent.
