Great food and wonderful atmosphere to celebrate a good friend's birthday. We weren't rushed and were able to enjoy drinks and appetizers before our meals came out.

We went to cotton for our date and the service was good. Food was very good. Our only issue was the tables were so close it was as if we were dining with the people next to us.

We live in the area and try to visit Cotton at least every other month. Quiet enough to catch up with friends. Drinks and appetizers are excellent. Dinners range from inviting "comfort" foods to the best lamb and steaks in the area. Best of all is the comfortable seating combined with great service and decor. 👍👍

Manchester is really stepping up its restaurant scene and Cotton is another great dinner spot! We went for a birthday dinner on Saturday night and the place was hopping! A nicely decorated space in an old mill that had a very warm vibe to it. We started with some great cocktails including the martini flight that was adorable. The cucumber... More

It was my first time here and it didn't disappoint! There are different dining areas in this restaurant including the bar, outside but the evening we went it was a bit cool so we decided to eat inside, in the main dining area but the outside dining area was set up really nicely also. Nice relaxed ambience, cozy, waiter was... More

We made a trip to New Hampshire in October 2016 to celebrate my brother-in-laws 50th birthday. We thoroughly enjoyed eating at Cotton restaurant and all of their dishes was out of this world. I would also rate their service 5 star, courteous and very professional!

If you do not mind sitting on a bar stool the entire time you or standing at a high 2 ft round table, which is occupied with the condiment tray and leaves you a 1 foot radius to eat on you will be fine. The food is above average and the IPA selection is endless. Overall, a find dining establishment!

Dear Lordcss, I just received notification from TripAdvisor of your recent review of Cotton Restaurant, Manchester, NH. While I appreciate the 4 out of 5 star review, this review appears to be of a different "Cotton restaurant" than mine. Out of our total number of 114 seats only 11 are bar stools at the bar, we have no 2 ft... More

4 members of our family went to Cotton on a Thursday evening. We had reservations and were seated right away. They make great martinis! We started with fried calamari which came with a white somewhat spicy dip. 2 of us had wedge salads while one other had the Caesar salad. I had hangar steak with mashed potatoes. My husband had...

Busy place on a Saturday evening as it clearly has a good reputation in the area. I came with a colleague to have drinks. I had the "Mint Mule" which was fabulous!

Stopped busy for dinner on a trip from Boston back to Vermont. Cotton was a really welcome surprise. The restaurant is decorated thematically as a speakeasy. Very nicely done with sophisticated appointments. Service was excellent. The food is done in the "comfort food" style and sourced, as much as possible, locally. I had the buttermilk herb fried chicken served with... More
