I was attracted by the menu on their website. Not disappointed! Offers unusual, tasty entrees in style. I had the lobster ravioli. Complete meal in itself. The salad I ordered was summer fresh in the dead of winter. My friend had the lamb. Nothing but raves for this place. Perfect to meet... read more

Cotton is one of our go-to restaurants. In the 10 years we've lived in Manchester, we have never had a bad meal there. Consistent food and always delicious. We take out-of-town friends there too. It's always a sure bet to please, either lunch or dinner.

Whenever someone asks me where to go in Manchester, I always refer them to Cotton. It has a nice, comfortable atmosphere, and good food that is also a really good value. The restaurant has a jazz club vibe, with a nice long bar to accomodate a lot of folks. Their menu contains updated American classics. For those who don't like... More

After wanting to go to Cotton for years, I finally made it last week. My husband and I took a friend visiting the area. It's much smaller than we expected; glad we had reservations. Service was good - we were not rushed to order, which we appreciated. We each had a different steak dish and were all very happy with... More

My fiancé and I went to Cotton for our first valentines day dinner and loved it so we went back as an engaged couple and still love it! Very hip 50s-60s vibe. Pretty large menu with a few specials. Great martini/cocktail list-- probably the best part of Cotton. Our waitress was very nice but did seem to rush us a... More

My Fiance and I were here for a date night and it was delicious. They have a nice menu selection and the portions were good. It was a really cool atmosphere and everyone was very friendly.

I recommend having reservations if you go here. The place is small but you won't be disappointed. Our service was excellent and the server was very good at suggestions as well as keeping our drinks full. I ordered the crab cakes for an appetizer and for my main meal the Delmonical Steak which was excellent and lots of flavor. If... More

We had been regulars at Cotton some years ago, but after two bad (quality) meals, we moved on. Reading the more recent favorable reviews, we decided to give it another try and made reservations for our party of four for a Thursday evening. We found the menu essentially unchanged over the years, but the service and food quality was back... More
