Went to dinner at our favorite restaurant for my wife's birthday. Cotton never fails to exceed our expectations. Service was impeccable. Server, Michael, was prompt, friendly and professional. I had the Lamb Napoleon which was cooked a perfect medium rare. My wife had the Pistachio crusted salmon which was equally delicious. After hearing that it was her birthday he brought... More

My husband, daughter and I ate dinner here last night for the first time. We were pleased with the easy access and parking. The atmosphere is very cozy. We sat at a booth by the bar which was comfortable and not too noisy. Our server was great and the food we ordered was about what we expected. Decent but not... More

We went here with some friends after having tried it a number of years ago. The service is OK but the food is average and too expensive for what it is.

Great menu and service, can get a bit loud though. If you're in the neighborhood during the spring, summer and fall their outdoor area is very nice. If you eat too much, not to worry you can stroll along the Merrimack river right near the restaurant. Recommend reservations, especially for the weekend.

Food continues to be first rate. Consistent favorites remain and inventive specials. Staff is always friendly and professional. My mom has some challenges being out and the staff always make her feel right at home. Our favorite place in Manchester.

I used to eat here when it was Cafe Pavone (different owners) and Cotton is just as good. I don't get to this restaurant more then maybe yearly so was glad to be able to stop in for a spontaneous lunch. It is in a busy working and university area and parking in their lot can be challenging because it... More

My husband and I, and friends too, frequently go to this restaurant in Manchester’s mill yard. In the more than a dozen years of being residents in this city we have never had a bad meal or bad service here. I can count on each dish — some of the same I often have — to be par excellence. The... More

With all the good restaurants in Manchester one would never find this place in the mix of it all but it very much worth finding. The food is excellent the service great! Drinks and new and refreshing. If your looking for a great place to dine I would recommend them.
