So delicious! The food was outstanding. The sweet potato hash is amazing. Our server was spectacular, too! She really took the time to answer my million questions!
The food is excellent. My guest and I loved everything we had. The ambience was very pleasant. I really like that it is quiet enough to hear each other talk. After leaving my guest said she could hardly wait to get hungry again so that she could eat her leftovers. I love the place.
Great experience overall. Got the pastrami sandwich and was not disappointed at all. Dinners are amazing here but the lunches are just as good and the pricing is reasonable. Highly recommend!
We had a server named Josh. He was so funny and was on point with service. Anytime we might have needed something he was there. There was a blonde lady at the bar that was rude but when I gave it back to her her attitude changed. The last making drinks was amazing. Over all the night was great.
Another one so easy to forget it's there.(Well, I won't forget again.) I got the Retro Meatloaf, with broccolini and mashed potatoes. My daughter got the fried chicken . We also shared a salad called the Wedge. I have to say, this was one of the finest meals I have had. Obviously the chef has found the best ingredients and combinations to make these palette pleasing dishes, but in spite of that both of us were equally pleased with the delectable taste of the few fries we pilferedfrom my grandson's plate. Ou waitress, (Scooter D?), was the best.
Ample food, pleasant atmosphere, prompt and Professional Service, and excellent attention to its Patrons.
Excellent food and drinks. I highly recommend.
Great food. Buttermilk fried chicken is fantastic.
Dinner last night was amazing. The wait staff was very accommodating, attentive, and good humored. The drink menu is very fun, with lots of interesting taste combinations, as well as classic cocktails. I had the Bumbu, and it was very, very good (somewhat sweet, somewhat spicy, makes me think of spiced cookies and iced chai). Dad got a Long Island iced tea, and I had a taste. It was by far the best Long Island Iced Tea I've had in years. The appetizers were also delicious. I especially I liked the creamy herb dip that came with perfectly cooked calamari. My lamb steak was also perfectly cooked, and the sides were delicious. If you like raspberries, the creme brulee is a perfect closer.
Nice atmosphere inside and outside seating under a pergola. Great food and service at reasonable prices for quality, fresh, locally sourced ingredients. Off street parking is a plus. Will defenitely recommend to friends and family.
Good food in a nice setting, quiet enough to hold a conversation. Try the buffalo chicken nuggets they are great!
Excellent food, excellent service. Make reservations as early as you can.
We had a wonderful time eating at Cotton. The food was delicious and tactful. I love classy restaurants and this was one of my favorites. They have an amazing patio under a beautiful pergola. If you like spicy and are in the mood for something different try the Pineapple Pimento cocktail!
Love Cotton, first discovered it on a return trip from Boston and have been back any time were are in the area. The best comfort food around. You will not be disappointed!
If you not white American with blue eyes !!! please stay away from this place you ll be treated different they will make fun of your accent and your color
The Cotton is by far my favorite restaurant in the southern NH area. Amazing food every time and even better service from their considerate and fast paced staff. The bartenders have a wealth of knowledge and are able to make a large variety of cocktails. Warm and comfortable environment, very welcoming with very pretty dim mood lighting. I typically opt for the steak dinner which is the best I've had since being in the area. I've never had a bad experience here and make it a point to go at least once a month. I highly recommend you give it a try as you wont be disappointed!
We always have a great dining experience at Cotton. Great atmosphere, food and service.
Great place, great energy and very good food. Our server Sam was the absolute best...very charming youg lady with an infectious positive attitude! Bravo Cotton!
Been here off and on for years, and honestly I’m always impressed. Personal fave is the scallops, and the atmosphere is just DRIPPING with personality. It’s truly one of my favorite places to just be surrounded by. Only reason it’s not a solid 5/5 is because the bar seems to run hot and cold, because I’ve gotten awesome drinks, and extremely unbalanced ones.
The scallops with sweet potato hash and the lavender gin martini we're absolutely delicious!
Drinks were strong! The popcorn shrimp were awesome. Definitely love the Mill building atmosphere and will definitely be coming back!
Sitting outside, you completely forgot that you were in the city. Our server Josh was amazing! And our black bean burgers were almost perfect. Had the burgers been given a hard sear first, they would have been even better!! I have absolutely nothing bad to say about this restaurant.
Food was good .. server was dry and distant at first .. she never introduced herself and did not check on us as often as she could have ..
Consistently excellent food and service at a great value. The fried chicken is the ultimate in comfort food.
We just had cold draft beer and appetizers ! Becky at the bar was friendly and attentive. The bread pudding was amazing! One of my favorite places!!
This is are go too favorite, food is concisely great and service is the same.
We recently connected with a sibling that I’d never met only to find that his son, my nephew was traveling for business and his last night in the area. We looked up TA and Cotton came highly recommended. We got a table right away, and enjoyed conversation for some time before ordering. Appetizers were pot stickers and crab cakes. Delicious! After some time we ordered our dinners, the Scallops dish and a couple of beef dishes. They were all very good. Time passed quickly and we ended up closing the place down as we lost track of time. Thank you Cotton for providing us with a great meal and an understanding staff. We felt right at home. Peace, Matt
Great food and service.
Good food. Nice ambiance
First off: Great Bathrooms. Very clean. Cozy atmosphere - too cozy IMO. Steak was amazing. Food was luke warm. Still very Good. Bread very good.
Food is always good, service is always great. Probably my top pick in Manchester. Never had a bad meal over the 10 years I've been dining here.
Incredible food and service. Beautiful patio is perfect for a nice evening out to enjoy the end of summer.
Always delicious... the patio seating is surprisingly quaint and enchanting. Love!!
Great little restaurant tucked away in Manchester. This was our second visit and well worth the drive. Great drinks, food, service and atmosphere. I like low key and good for my birthday dinner with friends. Our server was attentive and gave perfect service, not on top of us but didn't forget us either. Drinks came in a decent amount of time and the recommendations where helpful too. Food came out in good time, as ordered and at the right temperature. Everyone really enjoyed every aspect of the experience from start to finish. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
Very good food
This is a fantastic restaurant in the Millyard. Best fries! Try the cucumber mint lemonade. I've tried a lot of items on the menu. Have not had a dish I didn't like. Busy at lunch. Best to make a reservation for dinner. Love their martinis!
Best outdoor eating spot hidden right in downtown manch vegas.. amazing food and amazing presentation..just look at that popcorn shrimp
Second time I've been there for lunch. Nice place with an upscale atmosphere without being stuffy. Quick friendly service, good food. Not too pricey. The steamed broccoli is a tasty and healthy replacement for the kettle chips or fries.
Fine dining at affordable prices. Staff is always kind and helpful. Eat here. You won't regret it.
This is one of our favorite dinner spots to go to for birthdays, special occasions, or just because. The food is consistently good, and they honestly make the best lamb I have ever had. The wait staff is generally good as well.
Would be 5 stars but last night's (Saturday) hostess was less than accommodating. We had made reservations for 5:45 for a table. We always request a table (for 4) so we sit very close as my voice doesn't carry. There were two available yet denied one of them till stated we'd leave and not return. We frequent at least 4 times per month. No issues on other evenings, just this particular older hostess who has never been pleasantly accommodating.
Quality food quality drinks...top shelf staff
The cotton is a scrumptious place!
Great place for a date or classic night out. Great food and beverages selection. Highly recommend!
Food is always yummy and the service is great. I love their salmon dishes. Hubby loves the scallops.
They were unable to accommodate simple dietary restrictions for me. Although the steak was good and my server was friendly, I probably won't be back.
Great food a reasonable prices. I would give 10⭐ if I could.. 4
624 reviews Our anniversary date. We will see you tonight as always. Cotton's is Never a disappointment. Great food & staff. Use to live in Merrimack , but now in Moultbough, so long ride but very worth the trip. Have got to Cotton's always for the Best of food & drinks and atmosphere.

Always a great place for a app & drink!
Wonderful comfort food.
The food ,service and atmosphere are excellent. The scallops are amazing.
Fantastic salad here, nice atmosphere and service.
First time there excellent food
The food is simply delicious,always. The drinks are also excellent. Service is great. Very reliable able choice and never feels too crowded or too busy.
Great atmosphere. Great service. Great food. We will definitely be back.
Great service, and a great place for date night. The only issue was having a dinner seating right near the bar, so a lot of loud conversation bled into our conversation
Lthe the fish n' chips. Shoe string potatoes only available at lunch but yummy. Great atmosphere and service.
Fabulous food, excellent service, love the atmosphere.
Great food and great service, unique menu items do not disappoint.
Amazing good great service
Excellent food and excellent service.
Very nice place, great service. Parking is a little tough but I wouldn't hold that against them!
I am from Ukraine and never have problem at this place. I love food and service always very top level for me. Thank you for making my dinners very nice for me and my wife. Thank you.
Beautiful building full of some great history. Sat with a group of 6 people who all got something different. Everything single thing that was ordered was met with glee filled smiles and empty plates. Amazing amazing food. Thank you for the experience
Great food and atmosphere to take customers for dinner.
Honest review after going to Cotton at least a dozen times. Their food is 5 stars amazing. Up with the top restaurants in the area. The service however is 1 star if you're lucky. It does not matter if you are very polite, say thank you, tip well, etc., expect to be very uncomfortable and treated like you are a bother. Most recently Corissa with the bad service and leaving us feeling totally uncomfortable but it happens any time you go regardless of the server. We have never actually had a good experience with a server here. It's too bad we would go more often if they could get the service on track, instead we go to Ignite for our weekly date night (best food+service in Manchester) and save Cotton for when we really really really want the food and can stand the horrible service for a meal.
A great place for lunch and dinner. Lunches tend to be reasonably priced and the atmosphere is slightly more low-key than in the evening. The menu is good across the board and rotates frequently. We love eating on the patio during the summer months, the foliage and pergola create an intimate environment for al fresco dining. Do try the gazpacho, you won't be disappointed!
I’m giving it 3 stars because even though the food is always fresh and delicious, my significant other only eats chicken or turkey. Those options are very limited and the menu doesn’t change.
The food was delicious! The place was clean and loved the atmosphere. I would definitely go back.
This place is good. They are known for their drinks but the menu can be limiting depending on what people like in the group. It is a bit pricy but the limited seating allows for a more intimate setting and feel.
The Rhode Island calamari is delicious!
Always reliably good
Pork schnitzel special the other day was yummy. I have had the meatloaf, meatloaf melt, and the fried chicken.
Really good food, nicely done and good service
Excellent food, service, and ambiance.
Great food and atmosphere.
We ate here with 2 other family. The place was well lit. The food was excellent
This is where you go for good time and great food. Fun atmosphere with good service. Really cool spot.And I loved the salmon!
Great food and drinks in a stylish atmosphere. Interesting menu combining homestyle favorites and upscale fare with both elegant and fun presentation. Cocktails specials are both inventive and generous.
Fun and relaxing!
Great food and service.
Food was delicious and service was great. Loved the drink options too.
Good food. Good service. Good atmosphere. Great restaurant. Would suggest to everyone. Definitely worth spending the couple extra bucks then you would at most other restaurants. As the saying goes " you get what you pay for.
Best steak I've had in a looong time. Got it with horseradish creme, mmmm. Potatoes divine, ambiance perfect, and servers couldn't be better. A delightful experience all round.
Excellent lobster ravioli !
Fabulous lunch! Very reasonable prices too for this upscale restaurant I will definitely be back!
Great food portion! Amazing service !
Such a disappointment. My family ate here for recently and our waitress Corissa was not kind at all, nor was the owner Peaches. A simple request was asked and they refused to accommodate, meanwhile this simple request has been made for years and was always done KINDLY by the rest of her staff (not to mention by all the other restaurants in the area). They definitely do NOT like kids in their restaurant. If you are looking for amazing restaurants in the area with amazing service I would highly recommend The Chop House, Mint, Bedford Village Inn ect.
Delicious food and a beautiful patio!!!
Busy lunch hour crowd. Attended a small company meeting in a corner booth and even though the place was busy we could hear each other. Food was very nice and the service was just right.
Very pleasant outdoor dining patio with jazz. Varied selection of starters. The scallop one come with sizeable amount of greens good enough for lunch meal. Awesome servers.
A must eat in Manchester, foot was truly the best I have had in the city and staff all had smiles on their faces. For the price I paid I’d say that I got more than enough out of it. Great place for a formal netting or to celebrate ones special occasion.
Great food and service!
A new favorite of ours. Excellent atmosphere, food and service. We'll be back again soon!
We had the pleasure of eating at cotton last night. Wonderful and attentive staff. An interesting menu that delivered in quality, delicious from start to finish. My only complaint is it is too far from where I live. Will definitely be back on my next trip to Manchester
I can't say enough good things about this restaurant. The food, time after time, is absolutely delicious. The cocktails are always made perfectly. The staff is always pleasant and very helpful. Cotton is easily one of the best places to grab dinner/drinks in the southern New Hampshire area. 10/10 do recommend.
Very good food. On the pricey side, and not a large selection of entrees. The quality was fantastic! Definitely worth the price. Vast wine and alcoholic beverage list. Generous portion sizes and beautiful interior with outdoor seating (weather depending).
Cotton is a great addition to the Manchester restaurant scene. It's just enough on the outskirts of inner city Manchester, but don't let that fool you, as this place does get busy! I came on a Friday night where there was quite a wait. Luckily, Cotton takes reservations and my party and I were seated right away as we had made a reservation. Cotton's aesthetic has an easiness to it with an upscale feel, which gives it a cool vibe. There are a variety of tables to sit at in the lower section, with high top seating in the upper section with an expansive bar. Cotton advertises itself as an American restaurant, and it surely is fitting, but their menu presents a variety of flavor combinations ranging from Americanized Asian to Italian options.
I had the delmonico best steak I've ever had out. Cooked perfectly.
Great food when I attended SNHU years ago and they still have great food now. If you are looking for fresh, fine dining food at reasonable prices look no further. Heck I travel 4.5 hours one way now to dine here :-).
This place is awesome. From the welcome at the door to the to the very last bite. Our waitress Jordan, was friendly and accommodating. The meatloaf is absolutely amazing. Drinks are delicious. Atmosphere is nostalgic and inviting. Overall a very enjoyable evening in Manchester, New Hampshire.
Everything we had was fantastic, beginning with the soft sourdough and whipped butter. The portions were generous and the drinks were well made. Our server was prompt, friendly and helpful with recommendations, all without being over bearing. Our table had the baked goat cheese and buffalo chicken appetizers, steak Diane, scallop and jambalaya mains and toffee cheesecake, banana bread pudding and creme brule desserts--all were phenomenal. Oh,and, the espresso martini was dangerously good. If I were local, this would definitely be a place we'd revisit.
The food was outstanding. The service was good and timely. We will absolutely go back. Beautiful atmosphere.
Great food and wait staff, but the menu never changes which severely limits how offten we go back. However, there is not a bad meal on the repetitive menu.
Perfect, as usual. I've had lunch at Cotton many times, and this was my 1st time having dinner there. Every order was perfectly prepared, and delicious. What I love most about Cotton is the atmosphere and how even when the dining area is full, you can still have dinner conversation without straining to hear one another.
Great menu and drinks. High quality food at an affordable price.
Cotton is awesome my wife and I have been going for years. Such a nice laid back atmosphere with great drinks and even better food.
I’ve had several meals here! The Food is good for the most part. I think they could change a few things like The hash for the scallops entree is not very good and is just a big filler.. the scallops were cooked to perfection and great.. overall the Prices are very good for entrees. It Doesn’t seem overpriced in my opinion. A very Solid restaurant that I would recommend and have gone back to several times!
Food was awesome and the service was fantastic. Couldn't have asked for anything better.
The portions are large, but I had the best chicken salad sandwich I ever had and the fries were perfect - I mean perfect. The atmosphere was outstanding. I needed a bit of patience with the staff as they were very busy, but they are very good once they get to you.
If I could I would give this place ten stars! Absolutely fantastic food and service. Will definitely be back.
Great food, excellent food. Our waitress however did not seem representative of the rest of the service staff in the establishment. I just think she was an outlier. I definitely recommend going there though. Great ambiance and an amazing variety of delicious, well prepared food.
So delicious! Nice people good food. I liked the place.
Quinessential Manchester. Great atmosphere. Price is very reasonable for what you get.
Cotton was an awesome anniversary experience for us! I heard about this place last year, but have been crazy busy with work and a new baby boy. My wife and I visited tonight for our anniversary and were very pleased. Our waitress Tori was extremely friendly, prompt and courteous. We had a couple drinks to begin then Vermont creamery baked goat cheese with marinara fresh-baked ciabatta bread. We also tried the Tuna tataki appetizer. Both were excellent!! My wife had the New Hampshire lobster and scallop ravioli. I had the buttermilk herb fried chicken breast. Because of our personal contests and ratings- I won the meal. Fried chicken was awesome. Perfectly seasoned and cooked. The ravioli was very tasty. But get the fried chicken. Or delmonico steak. Or homemade meatloaf. Or sea scallops. Or pistachio crusted salmon. Or lamb steak. Just. Go. Try. Something. It's awesome. We will be be returning for sure, hopefully much sooner than our next anniversary. Thanks again!
The outdoor patio is defined and the salads we delicious
Tasty food and amazing cocktails! Hidden(?) Gem of Manchester
The food was good, but not great. Gazpacho had a strange consistency and was very acidic. Pasta dish with fresh corn was great. Great service too. I'd definitely give them another visit.
Delicious is all that needs to be said. Every time this place is delicious.
We went to this restaurant and the waiter made fun of me with his coWorkers because of my accent , I don’t recommend this place they’re racist. I dont feel comfortable going here, my american friend stood up for me and the manager did not help and was not sorry for what was done. Im heartbroken.
I grade on a relative and sliding scale... so when you start getting into upscale stuff the degree of difficulty goes up. This certainly deserves a 5 ... but I mean... gotta reserve a 5 for Four Seasons and Ritz Carlton right ;) ... Cotton is definitely a Manchester 5 though. Nice place!
Cotton is so tasty. I always try to get something different when I go there and the meals are worth the price. I enjoy the meatloaf, their salmon is delicious and last night I chose a crab stuffed haddock
Love it! Great, great food! Excellent atmosphere as well. Not sure why we don't go here more... going to change that.
I ate dinner at Cotton in with a group of six people. We got there early, around 5 p.m. on a Sunday so there were only a couple of other diners there. The service was friendly and efficient and the food food's great. I had a lamb steak that was perfectly medium rare as I ordered it and it was very tasty cut of meat. We got a calamari appetizer which was a fairly standard calamari. It was lightly battered and fried and tossed with chili peppers so it was slightly spicy. The calamari was cooked to Perfection, very tender and flavorful. That's where a lot of restaurants fall down on calamari. It can seem like you're chewing on a garden hose if they over cook it. Cotton Cooks it perfectly! Everyone in my party was happy with what they got. Cotton is a very solid quality restaurant.
Comfortable...not rushed....good food and drinks.... friendly staff
The lunch menu is fantastic. The food was awesome, cooked to perfection. I had heard that Cotton was super expensive, but for lunch in Manchester I'd call it about average ($10 or so for a burger). Wait times were reasonable as well, though they recommended making reservations for lunch in the future. Try the meatloaf melt, it's awesome!
Great sangria, clean restaurant, decent food but nothing amazing, and the service was soooooooooo slow. We were there for over 2 hrs but only because the waiter never was around. I'll come back for a drink maybe but save your time and go elsewhere for dinner.
Drinks and food had amazing flavor. Portion size was great as well. Very pleased and would recommend to anyone to try here.
A M A Z I N G FOOD!! MUST TRY! DO NOT HESITATE. THE ATMOSPHERE LIKE GOING BACK TO THE 40's.
Amazing! Friendly staff. Great atmosphere, nice setup, best Jambalaya and Coconut martini I ever had! Crab cakes were perfect! Will definitely be back.
Delicious! The waitstaff are absolutely incredible, and the food is even better. I highly recommend this place!
Food is good. Fresh and well prepared. Service good but not overly attentive. I never was asked if I wanted another beer. Acoustics create a loud environment which can be annoying.
Tonight we Had a party of 12+ People for a Celebration. Everyone’s meal came out Great Except mine of Coarse, steak was undercooked, when I asked to cook it more it came back the same way I sent it in. To top it off I was paying half the bill. Lesson learned.
Had the lobster and scallop scampi - fantastic! Great food... Sat under the grape vines.... A wonderful evening! Dwayne the bartender makes the best Cotton Flirt-tinis
Excellent buffalo chicken. Nice outdoor patio area with shade at every table
Good lunch menu. Large portions.
Amazing food that is full of flavor! Great service, outdoor patio is so cozy during hotter months. Worth checking out even with kids! The four-star is for the price, a bit high in my opinion, since most of the ingredients they use are commom, but the quality seems to go with it or the chef really knows how to use low quality ingredients!
Everything we ordered was delicious. The sour dough bread is fresh. Terrific food
A most civilized contemporary dining experience. Kudos to all staff.
We had a fabulous time. Love the atmosphere and the food.
Great food!! Great service
STAY AWAY PLZ FROM THIS PLACE UNLESS YOU WHITE AND YOU SPEAK PERFECT ENGLISH !!!! THEY WILL MAKE FUN OF YOU AND TREAT YOU SO BAD
Waited an hour for a med-rare steak that was more sinue than meat and overcooked and underseasoned vegetables. Came here because of the high praise that it recieves here but it is not warrented. There are much better options in the area to drop $50 on a meal. Service was good and responsive but overall unsympathetic. The only redemption this place has is its house cocktails which are pretty good.
Always amazing drinks, food, and service. Been coming here for 10+ years now. Never disappointed
Always fantastic... great ambience, food, and drinks
Every dish was amazing.
Cotton is a great addition to the Manchester restaurant scene. It's just enough on the outskirts of inner city Manchester, but don't let that fool you, as this place does get busy! I came on a Friday night where there was quite a wait. Luckily, Cotton takes reservations and my party and I were seated right away as we had made a reservation.

Cotton advertises itself as an American restaurant, and it surely is fitting, but their menu presents a variety of flavor combinations ranging from Americanized Asian to Italian options. On the evening that I came here, our waiter was extremely attentive and made sure to answer our questions and refill our water glasses periodically. I ended up ordering the Caesar salad with chicken and the crab cake appetizer. First off...the Caesar salad was OUT. OF. THIS. WORLD. I know, I know...it's salad, but it was MASSIVE and Cotton makes their own dressing which made it amazeballs. The crab cakes were also delicious with a corn and bean salsa and a spicy sauce on top. Both options were great! Overall, I really enjoyed my experience at Cotton. My one critique is that I wish they had a few more healthier options on their menu, and their price point can be a little expensive for some items, in my opinion. However, it surely doesn't deter me from wanting to come back for more!
I took my daughter in here to have lunch with me, the food was well cooked and had many options to choose from.
Always excellent. Everything is chef-cooked and super fresh. Wonderful homemade sourdough crusty bread for a starter. Delmonico steak cooked to medium rare perfection with comfort food mashed potatoes. Turkey schnitzel was a nice entree with freshly made applesauce.
Good food but pricey for what you get...
Cozy atmosphere, good food!
First time eating at Cotton, and we wish we started going there years ago. Too many delicious looking items on the menu, its hard to pick just one to order. The jambalaya was excellent. The farmhouse salad with pan-seared scallops was excellent. The toasted coconut cocktail was a bit sweet for me, but my wife loved the martini flight cocktail. The crab cakes appetizer is wonderful. And the price is reasonable, on top of it all, along with the wonderful service we had. We'll be back!
Fancy restaurant but doesn't hurt the wallet too bad. Limited menu but everything on it is delicious
Great cocktails and food options. Great atmosphere too.
Food and service was excellent
Great food... the owner came out and talk to us and gave us recipes Couldn't have been better.
