The food is good, the wine list is more than adequate, but it's the service that gives it my 5 stars. we were there for a birthday celebration and had said so while making our reservation. it got passed around and everyone said happy birthday to the person we were celebrating. our server and assistant were excellent. they weren't stuffy like you get in some fine dining establishments, and made sure we got great service and had a good time. go for the food, but enjoy the service.

The service was wonderful...friendly and efficient. The food was good but not great. No bread was offered with our entrees. We had eaten here while visiting Huntsville a couple of years ago and loved it, we were excited to return. Not sure if we will return.

Really, hands down the best food we have ever had in Huntsville. Fantastic on every level. Great service, great vibe, imaginative drinks, superlative food. What more could you ask for? Go. You won't be sorry.

Not our first trip here- we have been here before mostly for drinks.
What we liked initially about the place was the fact that it seemed to be a place where you can go with your husband and have a romantic night together. So we decided to make reservations there last Saturday and we were hoping for that. Not exactly! Just the opposite- place was packed and tables are very close to each other. We ended up on a bench, by the wall , that literally we were very close to the people sitting on the same bench on both sides.
So, there was no private romantic dinner at that point, we had to almost scream to each other to have a conversation.
And , oh - by the way, if spending over 150$ to do just that, may seem all right for the people in this restaurant bus, I can tell you better places to do that and for much less money!
We expected a high class, fine dinning restaurant where ambiance is part of the deal. NOT HERE!
It seems like they try to fit as many people in , as possible, have quite a crowd but for such a pricey ticket! Food was good , but selections are missing, bread was hard as a rock- although we were told we would get a great bread selection from local merchants.
Simply put-if you plan to use this place for a romantic dinner with your significant one- this is just NOT the place for that. Very loud ambiance, very close table setting, atmosphere is lacking.
Just wanted to share a few ideas about how our experience was there and what to expect if you intend to use this restaurant for that.
We will most likely not come back there.

This was my second trip to Cotton Row. My first experience did not go well, but since they consistently get good reviews I wanted to give it another try. The star of the show was not the food which I found ordinary. I had a lobster risotto starter which had nice flavor but didn't have much lobster and at $18 seemed pricey for the small portion. My entree of beef short ribs was unadorned and tasted like stringy roast beef. The positives were the charming ambience and attentive service that made it feel like a special night out. I enjoyed a pre dinner drink at the bar where the expert bartender displayed cocktail making as an art form.
