We made a reservation at Cotton, and the table was ready for us. Each of us four found something that appealed to us from the menu of a mix of comfort food, seasonal specialties, and light foods. My choice of butternut squash ravioli was wonderful, accented by cranberries, hazelnuts, and fresh sage. We accompanied our dinner with a very nice... More

We went to Cotton on the recommendation of a local. Decent food, service and the like. It's described as being very "hip" but I didn't see that; it was pretty generic. Menu had some imagination, not overly eclectic, but not "safe" either. Portion sizes were good. Turkey schnitzel was interesting and quite a surprise.

We've eaten at Cotton three times in the past few months and each time was a good experience. The dishes are nicely presented and each is a very creative use of fresh, high quality ingredients. Portions are generous so we usually take home leftovers. Prices aren't cheap but the quality and quantity of food served justifies the cost, so it... More

weekday night, on the early side,friend and i sit at the very elegant, nicely decorated bar. our server, Ashley, was quick to greet us and we ordered bottled beer.. Bass, (eh!) due to "slim" selection of draft beers (no IPA offered, and out of 4 drafts one was pumpkin something or other). the wine list is much better with a... More

We visited Cotton for the first time and were thoroughly impressed with the decor and mostly the food and service. Our meals were nicely prepared and exactly as advertised. They were tasty and pleasing. Our server did not intrude during the mean except to ask is everything was to our satisfaction. Our drinks were wonderful.

I come to Manchester on a regular basis for business and go to Cotton every time I come here! Their lamb steak is my favorite meal there, it is high quality, taste great and the mint pesto sauce that it comes with greatly compliments the lamb! I've also had their steaks and turkey schnitzel, which are also great. I know... More

I had the grilled sea scallops for dinner here, and they were fantastic. Most entrees cost in the $20 range, but the portions are large. Cotton has it's own parking, which is a huge perk for that area near Elm Street. The restaurant had a nice atmosphere with a retro vibe to it. The only thing I didn't like was... More

It had been awhile since we had dined at Cotton so I was looking forward to going back. Overall it was not a bad experience, but I'm not champing at the bit to go back. For an appetizer we had the pot stickers. They were good, but nothing to write home about. My husband had the Lobster Scallop Ravioli. It... More

I will start by saying that I have many friends that love this restaurant and I am sure they have good food. Unfortunately my wife and I had an awful experience and we have no plans of returning. We went there about one year ago for dinner. We had a nice coconut shrimp appetizer and we both had beers. The... More
