Date Night Done Right!

We visited High Cotton on Valentine's Day which is definitely a busy night. We had reservations for 8 p.m. and we arrived at 8:05. Upon arrival, we gave the hostess our valet ticket which she happily validated and we were quickly led to our table. I was very impressed because the restaurant was... read more

My husband treated me to High Cotton for Valentine's Day. We had never eaten here but had heard very good things about it. The food was delicious! The prices are expensive so this is the type of place you would probably want to eat for a special occasion. I do plan to go back again. My husband would recommend the... More

We arrived in Greenville, SC during Valentines Day weekend with a the show Wicked in town. We asked the hotel concierge for a recommendation and help in securing a reservation for 8. Their first suggestion was High Cotton and they were able to 'find' us a reservation. The menu had a great selection of appetizers, small plates and entrees. Our... More

High Cotton never disappoints and the view is amazing looking out over the Reedy River. Just remember to ask for a table by the window. If you book late, this may not be possible though. The service is always great as well. Not sure why Monica S had a bad experience only to say that Valentine's day is the craziest... More

Stopped by again last night, prior to the Ringo show, sat at the bar as is our wont. Being Mardi Gras, we ordered sazeracs to honor New Orleans. Wilson, the cocktail wizard, improvised due to the lack of several ingredients and produced a very tasty drink, anise flavored, which fit the bill nicely. That is the sign of a quality... More

We have dined at high cotton charleston many many times. We had our rehearsal dinner at the charleston location--cant say enough wonderful things. Sadly, the greenville location has fallen short. Let me start by saying, our server morgan was very sweet. We were there for Valentines dinner. We were placed on the 2nd level, overlooking the gorgeous restaurant.... in the... More

We celebrated our anniversay the other night at High Cotton in Greenville SC. This was our first visit there on recommendation of a friend. We booked our reservation through Open Table and it was on their system when we arrived and I only booked it about an hour before we left the house. The atmosphere is great. It is modern... More

This is the 2nd time I have been here. The first time I went we had a specific menu to choose from and I was not excited about any of the choices so I wanted to give them the benefit of the doubt. I went again last night. The food and service were both good, however the Filet was not... More
