Every time we go, we just love the food! If you like crab cakes, they are a must to get here. We love sitting outside. You could never tell you are within downtown Manchester! Very friendly staff and great service!

I went to Cotton on a Friday night for dinner and drinks. We made a reservation prior on OpenTable and were seated immediately upon arriving. The server was helpful and recommended popular drinks/ meals. I ended up getting the baked goat cheese app, and the lobster scallop ravioli for a meal. My only negative was that the lobster was overpowering... More

I've tried numerous items on their menu, but their bananas foster bread pudding is not to be missed. It's swoon-worthy.

He friendly, congenial and really knew his stuff. He explained the specials and offered both appetizer and dinner suggestions. The food was excellent as were the drinks. Our waiter checked on us often... More

cotton is located in the historic Millyard district in a beautiful old brick building. We liked the decor of the restaurant and enjoyed eating on the patio under the lush vines. The waitstaff gave us great service. The five of us enjoyed the calamari and the popcorn shrimp. We all had a different dinner selection and raved about the food.... More

We've been going to Cotton for years, I don't know why I haven't thought of writing a review before now! Cotton is hands down one of the best restaurants in Manchester and happens to be my favorite go to place. The atmosphere is warm and inviting and not very noisy. It tends to get busy so I would strongly suggest... More

Anytime we want to have a great meal to celebrate a special occasion or to take out of town visitors to a wonderful local place, Cotton fills the bill. With its extensive bar offerings and wonderful meal choices, we have never been disappointed. There is multi- tier seating with tables along the bar for a more “vocal” ambiance and a... More

We visited Manchester for the first time ever and really lucked out with our choice of lunch at Cotton. I thoroughly enjoyed the Maine Peeky Toe Crab Cakes: pan-seared twin cakes of fresh Maine crab & snow crab w/ spicy honey chipotle aioli & black bean corn salsa. This was truly a meal (generously listed as an app) with a... More
