“Perfect 25th Anniversary Dinner!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2013

From valet parking to yummy dessert... This was a dinner we will not soon forget!
Chris was an outstanding server and the hostess even congratulated us on 25 yrs of marriage. Can't believe this was our first visit to Cotton Row! It will NOT be our last. Can't wait to go back! Food and service is outstanding!

“Outstanding lunch and excellent service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2013

Having never been to downtown Huntsville, we came across this restaurant by chance. The dinner menu posted at the entrance of the 1800's building had imaginative and varied selections.
We were not disappointed with the lunch menu and specials of the day. I selected the roasted duck over mushroom ravioli with seasonal greens special and it was outstanding. The service and comfortable conversation, from the receptionist, hostess, waiter, General Manager and ultimately the Chef/Owner made this delightful meal even more pleasant. The ambiance, if you like original historical architecture coupled with interesting and original detailing, was great. I will definitely make a point to go back to Huntsville and to Cotton Row. Lunch may be a little less crowded and relaxed than during the dinner hours but it would be worth the wait.

“Great but pricey”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2013 via mobile

We had a girlfriends weekend and wanted to eat away from the chain restaurants. Found Cotton Row on trip advisor and decided to give it a try. Great atmosphere - we didn't have a reservation, so we were seated upstairs. VERY nice! The food was delicious, the service was outstanding, and although pricey ( my meal alone was $60 for app and entree, water to drink), I would go back on a special occasion.

“Most Sophisticated Kitchen in Huntsville”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2013

Hosted a dinner for a business group in the 'Board Room' upstairs. Have enjoyed the restaurant on other occasions, so was familar with the menu and atmosphere. Excellent food. Staff was efficient, but waiter was busy elsewhere when it was time to pay and leave. The wait was noticeable and awkward for my party of eleven. A minor inconvenience, but at he should have been more attentive. Very pricey menu, ...and a surcharge was added for the private room. All was very elegant, but the per person price point was over the top. Likely a special occasion or special business dinner venue for most people.

“Great meats, poor service, stale bread, warm beer.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2013

The salmon, and beef filet we very good. The service was very slow. Now what we would expect at these prices. They were very nice, but warm beer and stale bread does not cut it at this level. We noticed that other tables were as unhappy as us. They were packed, but that is no excuse for mistakes at this level. We will not go back.
