Very friendly knowledgable staff. Very nice wine list. Our meals were excellently prepared. The only negative is that food portions are quite large. My salad could have served 3.

Although we had wanted reservations for eight of us, we booked kind of late on a Friday, and were told, that we would not be able to get in until 8:00 p.m. We received a call from the rest. and they told they had a cancellation, and would take us at 7:00 p.m. This restaurant was decided by one of...

An early dinner at Cotton was the perfect ending for my New England vacation! Pumpkin soup, delicious bread, scallop and lobster ravioli, lemon tart---each one obviously created by skilled chefs with full attention to every detail! Michael provided just the right amount of attentive service and anticipated my every request! When an unexpected incident interrupted my meal, he and the... More

I dined here with two friends on a Sunday evening. The service was prompt and attentive. I had the grilled scallops with an interesting hash made of sweet potatoes, corn and bacon. The scallops were grilled to perfection and the hash was tasty. Another of our party had the lamb tenderloin and raved about it. Three entrees and three glasses... More

The food was so salty that the salt masked any flavor the food had. Both of our entrées were like this. They served us old, burned coffee! The pistachio ice cream was flavorless. The portions are way too huge. The wait was more than half an hour WITH reservations. The server was devoid of personality or friendliness. I was shocked... More

I have eaten there several times for dinner...outside, in a booth, at a table and at the bar. The swordfish was great, and the server suggested an excellent wine. I like the atmosphere in the downstairs of an old mill. You can see part of the stone foundation on one wall. Never had a bad meal.

Excellent service, drinks, apps and dinner. We shared the farmhouse salad, beet Salad, and steak Diane. All was perfect as was the bread and whipped butter. The service was superb and the alfresco dinning just what we needed after the long ride.

Well I've eaten at the Cotton before this was the first time I've gone there for lunch. I went there with about seven other of my coworkers and we had a blast. Our waitress was fantastic and make sure that all of our needs were met. The food was simply amazing. I would highly recommend that you look at the... More
