The menu is a little more on the pricey side but the options you can find here you can't find at any other place in the area. The servers are knowledgeable but usually so busy they can't spend much time with you other than to take your order and serve you with one trip back.

Cotton has a great theme, but the tables are small and close together. They have high-priced food that doesn't come with a salad or anything, just bread. My lobster and scallop ravioli wasn't as I expected as the seafood was mixed in with the cheese and inside the ravioli. I was hoping for nice chunks of lobster and scallops in... More

Met an old friend who was passing through New England and downtown Manchester was a good central meeting point. On a cold, wintry night, part of the restaurant was COLD so we moved to a warmer table. Overall, the food was really good. The Fried chicken was delicious, and those at the table who ordered steak or turkey schnitzel were... More

We finally got around to visiting after hearing great reviews. We met with another couple, and all four of us had excellent meals. The appetizers were plentiful. The crab cakes were so good. My husband shared his tuna tataki, which was also great. The entrees were even better. The fried chicken was great comfort food, and my husband loved the... More

I'm very glad that I researched what restaurants to visit while my husband and I visited New Hampshire back in September. I don't think we'd ever find Cotton if I hadn't found it online - it's really kind of tucked away. We were staying in Exeter and am really glad we took a little trip to Manchester to dine at...

I do a lot of "business lunches" here. Everything I've had I've been very pleased with. The fried chicken is famously good, the mashed potatoes I have dreamed about since the first time I ate here. Recommended!

Four of us arrived here around 2 PM for lunch and were seated immediately. The menu and specials menu offered many choices. The fish chowder was loaded with chunks of a variety of seafood and could have been a meal itself. The turkey, bacon, Swiss cheese panini was large and served with a sizeable portion of shoestring potatoes. The butternut... More

Cotton is one of go to places in Manchester where I work. Good solid, fresh food with great service, a nice wine list and nice atmosphere. Well work a visit for dinner or lunch.

Joined 2 other couples for dinner at Cotton's. We had never been but will be back again. Quick & friendly service, nice variety on the menu, everyone really enjoyed their meal, & it was very reasonably priced. Can't ask for much better than that.
