Great place to stop for lunch in Manchester, New Hampshire on our way from Rhode Island to Vermont. Don't be fooled by the manufacturing buildings. This restaurant has great food with superb service. The ambience is exceptional giving you a New York feel but also filled with locals at the expansive bar. We will definitely visit here again!

Stopped here while driving on Rte 3 through Manchester. Navigated using GPS to this restaurant on the ground floor of a renovated mill building. Wide ranging menu with a contemporary offering g. Easy to go from creative appetizers to either light or hearty entrees. I split a fried chicken main plate and that was sufficient. Chicken was moist and the... More

I recently started working in Manchester, NH and had not been able to find a great spot for lunch. We tried Cotton last week and were very happy with the visit. The Mediterranean Salmon Salad was the best salad I have had in quite awhile. Service was great and while we didn't have drinks, it looked like a fun place... More

I really need to branch out and try something else but I love the Bistro steak and it comes in multiple styles. Good food. Great atmosphere and reasonably priced.

Went back after a long hiatus the food and service was wonderful. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. The food was what we expected, served hot, fresh and tasty.

Great ambience? Check. Great service? Check. Reasonable prices? Check. Food local and fresh? Yup. But all that stuff is beside the point. I'd eat at Cotton if it were a roadside stand with picnic tables because the food is THAT good. The kind of roll-your-eyes, OMG THIS IS FANTASTIC good. I love the meatloaf but it's all superb. The other... More

My parents and I come here every year for my birthday and it is always great. I always get the butternut squash ravioli!! Delicious! We also shared a spinach salad and my mom said it was the best salad she'd ever had. We love cotton!!

Made reservations on a Sunday evening. My first visit. Arrived as third or fourth group, but the place filled fast. I can see why as the meal was quite good. Started with calimari which was as good as I have ever had...quite tender with nice slightly spicy flavor. The jumbalia was also good, and the was to much to finish.... More

My wife and I dined at Cotton on New Year's eve with some good friends. The atmosphere was festive, and we enjoyed a delightful meal and excellent, friendly service. While Cotton only offers a limited menu on New Year's eve, there were five appetizers and five entrees to choose from, as well as three desserts. My wife and I enjoyed... More
