I recently went to this establishment for an early birthday dinner. Our waitress seemed solid in the beginning and quickly she dwindled. The only complaint I have about the food is that when I ordered the turkey schnitzel the mashed potatoes were not the same temperature as everything else they were a little bit cold. However the food was just... More

This is the second time I've been here while traveling in the area, this time with a colleague, and it really is a great restaurant. The booths in the upper level by the bar are cozy, and the food is wonderful. Some of the tenderest, lightest calamari I've ever had (and I've had my share, believe me) and a terrifically... More

We went there on a Sunday night at 6:30. I had a reservation and I'm glad we did as the place was pretty packed. Even though we were twenty minutes early we were seated quickly. They had great sounding cocktails but we stuck with water. I had the buttermilk fried chicken with mash potatoes and broccoli. The sides were standard.... More

When we came in, our table was ready and we were seated within a few seconds. The tables were very clean with nothing extra on them but salt and pepper. The food was delicious, their buttermilk chicken was fantastic. Seven out of 8 of us had their creme brule for dessert and it was also great. Very clean restaurant, great... More

We could see the "Cotton" sign from up the hill, but actually finding the entrance was more of a challenge. It didn't matter. Once we stepped inside the front door we were transported to a happy place -- beautiful decor, lighting, ambiance. The service just made it one notch better. We arrived about ten minutes before the official dinner hour,... More

Great food with reasonable pricing. Love the bar for its ambiance to have a evening martini or their speciality cocktails.

It was a Friday night so the restaurant was pretty busy. The atmosphere is nice. They had a good selection of drinks from the bar. Food prices were higher than competition but the food was good. Service could have been better (took a while to get. Drinks, appetizers and the meal. Overall, it was a good dining experience.

Had dinner here with a friend. The menu has so many attractive and interesting (in a good way) selections! We started with the Baked Vermont Goat Cheese appetizer. I tried the New Hampshire Lobster Scallop Ravioli and my companion tried the Almond Crusted Turkey Schnitzel. They were both excellent. The service was good. I felt that more frequent stops by...

We went on a cold night of October, the place was pack but we had reservation. We ask for Butternut squash ravioli – which were delicious but extra oily - and Bistro steak which was great. We definitely can go back any day.
