Good food, reasonably priced and well presented by a professional staff. Located in an old mill building, open and airy.

The food, drinks and service were more than excellent. Don't care for, the seating arrangements. Too close to your "neighbor". Ordered a Manattan (not my usual drink) based on servers suggestion... it was excellent. Calamari appetizer was incredible.

We do not go to Cotton very frequently but whenever we do we enjoy our meal. Last night's was no exception. My meal started with a huge spinach salad, then a lamb steak with a polenta patty, a portabella, and summer squash. It was delicious, both last night and again today for lunch. There were three others at the table... More

3 sisters always celebrate a late Christmas luncheon here-complete with presents. Not only was the food delicious , but have to give a big kudo to Becky-she is an outstanding server , with an A+ personality, Never once were we hurried or pressured-we stay a couple of solid hours and enjoy every minute of it. Thanks Becky.

Great Ambiance. Friendly Bartenders & Service staff is very knowledgeable and accommodating. Food is good. Great layout and location is in a Historic Mill area, but structure stands alone within the Mills. KM

Went to dinner at our favorite restaurant for my wife's birthday. Cotton never fails to exceed our expectations. Service was impeccable. Server, Michael, was prompt, friendly and professional. I had the Lamb Napoleon which was cooked a perfect medium rare. My wife had the Pistachio crusted salmon which was equally delicious. After hearing that it was her birthday he brought... More

My husband, daughter and I ate dinner here last night for the first time. We were pleased with the easy access and parking. The atmosphere is very cozy. We sat at a booth by the bar which was comfortable and not too noisy. Our server was great and the food we ordered was about what we expected. Decent but not... More

We went here with some friends after having tried it a number of years ago. The service is OK but the food is average and too expensive for what it is.

Great menu and service, can get a bit loud though. If you're in the neighborhood during the spring, summer and fall their outdoor area is very nice. If you eat too much, not to worry you can stroll along the Merrimack river right near the restaurant. Recommend reservations, especially for the weekend.

Thank Gail B
