We had dinner for the first time at The Cotillion tonight. What a pleasure. The restaurant is small, about 40 seats, but filled with charm. Jennifer was our server and she was friendly, welcoming and gave excellent service. We had the meatloaf and the Chicken Fried Steak. Both entrees were wonderful. The cornbread was delicious. Save room for dessert. The... More

As I could not find one item on the menu I could eat (all butter, cream, saucy), I asked for a plain meat loaf with nothing on it or the bread. The menu stated fast service, but well over a half hour later, I got my meat with bleu cheese on it. Of course I had to wait longer until... More

Met two family members for lunch. It was delightful and various food items to chose from. I had a fried salad that the best fried green tomatoes. The others had chicken salad with delicious sides of fried green to toes and sweet potato fries. Quaint cafe with old photos and antique decorative touches. I recommend reservations.

It's a wonderful place run by very nice people. The servers (joey and Angela) were just so sweet. I will definitely be returning soon.

The Cotillion serves southern dishes just like grandma used to make with outstanding friendly service. The beautiful nostalgic cottage atmosphere is like dining in the good old days. It offers a quiet comfortable setting for an unforgettable dining experience. There were three of us and each ordered something different. All three meals were excellent. The prices were about the same... More

This place makes food like a true southern grandma. The fried green tomatoes take me back to my youth with grandma and granny. The desserts are to die for. I had the strawberry cream cake. The atmosphere is nostalgic

Went for lunch about a week ago with a friend. Had the Train Wreck & chicken salad on croissant, they were both wonderful. Seating arrangement is so much better, new seats are very nice. Our waitress was very good, outstanding meal.

What a gem Cotillion is! I've enjoyed dinner at this spot many times but had the pleasure of dining in for lunch today. I was there alone and needed to get work done; was seated in a quiet corner, which I appreciated. Joey and Angela both waited on me and were a truly outstanding team. Joey helped me get connected...

I was concerned when we showed up because we were the only ones there at 6pm. The decor is very chic Victorian but clean and not too much. Lots of options. I got the "Train Wreck" and it was AMAZING. A little pricey but worth it. The food came out very quick. We were in and out in 30 minutes.
