Food - outstanding. I had salmon and it was fresh. My guest had a chicken sandwich.. It was huge and tasty.

Location - good for Manchester centrally located in the mill yard.

Parking - can be tight some days but there was spots available today. The parking lot in general is tricky.

Service - our waitress was spot on and very pleasant.

Price - lunch was $37 with 1 shared appetizer, drinks and entrees. Not bad. I believe dinner can be slightly above average but its certainly worth it.

Bar - there was a decent size bar but it was lunch time so I couldn't tell how busy it was during a peak time.

Overall - I would absolutely recommend this restaurant to everyone. Nice job Cotton.

Cotton is one of the mainstays in Manchester. It is consistently good. Great specials, cocktails and a real nice big city vibe.

Great decor, helpful and cheerful staff and great lunch selections. This is THE place of choice to have a business lunch. Casual and friendly. Eager to please. Entrees, sandwich selections, are superb. Fish & chips can't be beat. Prices are very reasonable. You will, no doubt, make this a bistro of choice when downtown Manchester.

This was the gist time my husband and I dined at cotton. We had 7pm reservations on a Thursday for my birthday. The place wasn't too full when we arrived. We were promptly seated, and ordered drinks about 5 minutes later. The drinks took forever. When they finally came, they were delicious and strong. Try the salted caramel apple martini. It's worth the $9.50.

I ordered the pumpkin soup special which was very good. Just the right amount of salt and pepper. My meatloaf entree was a little dry. My husband ordered the steak special which was also good.

I enjoyed the atmosphere of the restaurant and will probably go back.

Pumpkin soup good.

Main entree was breaded chicken with potato and Jambalaya.
Took 35 minutes, long, long wait.

Red wine (Shiraz) had funny taste.

Jambalaya is not their specialty- rice no that good as expected.

Dessert was good.

We make a reservation online, when we arrive the hostess had some serious attitude problem, don't know why she works front of the house. Should work at back of the house instead.

Service has to improve.

Not going back.
