We have eaten here 4 times and always great. We sat outside and love it. I had the butternut squash ravioli and it was to dye for. Meal was quick and hot. A must if you're in Manchester.

We found Cotton to be Upscale, But Warm and Inviting. It is tucked in at the end of a street of mills. I suspect parking would be tricky at night, but we did fine at lunch. It is a two tier level, tables on the first level, (only a couple of steps) with the bar and booths on the second... More

We've gone here a couple of times for late dinner with friends we've visited in Manchester. The restaurant is in a outside corner on the ground level of one of Manchester's converted mill buildings. Menu consists of standard Amercian recipes. There is a separate cocktail menu, which showcases the bar. Sophistication of recipes is average. Prices are a bit high,... More

This was the second time at Cotton, and I chose not to write a review of the first visit, two months previously. Their wine selection is very good and fair priced and the waitstaff is friendly. The other reviews I read about their food were very good, making it sound like fine dining, but our 2 visits cannot support the... More

I've been to Cotton several times. The food is always good, especially the homemade ice cream. Good wine list. The best part is the outside eating area covered with a grape arbor for shade. Spent a few summer afternoons with a bottle of wine over lunch there. Service has always been very attentive.

My brother and I ate here for the first time on a whim and were pleasantly surprised. The waitstaff was great, even while explaining that they had run out of mashed potatoes (how does THAT happen?!). Food was great all around. We ordered the crab cakes and pot stickers for starters and shared the jambalaya (the bowl is huge, so... More

Interesting bar/tavern in Manchester - very 1940's feel to it. Burger with blue cheese and home made sweet pickles was very tasty. They have a nice sandwich lineup on their lunch menu - worth a try if you're in the area.
