About Cotton Row Restaurant

A vision for comfort, elegance and modern American cuisine is how the story of Cotton Row Restaurant began. We are inspired by the enduring passion of the cotton traders who once worked in downtown Huntsville, and invite you to experience our southern hospitality.

Cotton Row Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Stopped here for a quick 1 hour meal before a night out to see a show. I was disappointed in the beer selection from the 3 taps they had. Our server's assistant delivered another table's food to us before our appetizers arrived and was quickly corrected by our server. Our appetizers were flavorful and appropriately priced. While my wife's salmon had a great texture and flavor my NY strip was underwhelming in flavor. It also was quite fatty and while I asked for medium rare it arrived medium. Service was slow but perhaps they don't employ their top employees on a Tuesday evening.
We have ate here many times over the past years, however our visit this week was an unexpected disappointment. Two of the meals were as good as always, but the two meals were not good. The food was so salty that it was inedible. We have always has truly outstanding waiters but the lady we had the other night was clueless and flat out didn’t care if we were satisfied or not. A disappointment from my favorite place to eat in Huntsville.
Service was slow. Took 25 min to get menu and order a drink. Should have left then. We had reservations for almost 2 weeks, and were sat in wine cellar. Room was cool, but so was the service... more like cold! Took way too long to get drinks, food, and the food was just average. We had charcuterie board which could have come from Publix, was not good, salads were okay, and entree was average as well. When you don’t get out much becuase you have 2 babies, and spend $140 on a meal, you expect more. Will not go back.
My wife and I seated for a reservation at 6PM and did not get out until 8:40Pm. The service was slow. My wife's meal was exceptional (trigger fish). I ordered the Fillet Mignon (Medium Well). It showed up medium rare and cold in the center. I sent it back and the next piece showed up Medium well and purposely charr'd on the outside (Chef's revenge). I will not go there again.
As part of our commitment to keep our marriage strong we try to have a date night at least once a month. Cotton Row was our pick for this trip since I am a graduate student and a huge writing load stretched us out to 8 weeks this time. Ambience is simple and elegant, but not stuffy. Service was outstanding. Our server was attentive but did not smother us. He was well versed on menu items and gave fantastic descriptions of the items we inquired about. Our meal was excellent; perfectly cooked and beautifully presented.
I am from DC and Cotton Row prepared some of the most delicious food i have ever had and my colleagues from Seattle and Maryland agreed -- from the oysters, fried green tomatoes, lobster to the duck and seven wonders salad! Not to mention the pomegranate martini! Fabulous!
Dont be in a rush! Food was great and the wine list was fine, but the service is less than the best. Seems to be a young wait staff that lack awareness. Our plates sat on the table for 30 min after we finished our meal. We had a glase of wine so....whatever flys have to eat too. All in all I would go back, just know you maybe there 90-120+ minuets......
Our experience here was excellent in all areas. The food was delicious and beautifully presented and our waiter was attentive without being intrusive. It was a treat to find a quiet place to talk and catch up with old friends. We will definitely return soon. Thank you.
Have wanted to visit for a while. Saw the write-up about your excellent wine cellar in Wine Spectator and that convinced me it was time. Invited a lady friend who is also a wine lover and made the reservation. Wait staff was right there when needed, but didn't hover. Oysters were excellent, as was the wine selected to accompany them. We even checked with the chef and got his approval. The entree was a beef ragout that was delightful, the wine that we selected was most complementary.
Thanks for your great wine selection, and excellent food to go with it.
This is a fabulous restaurant, so good that I may return the same week. Service was mostly attentive if a little quirky. The food, though, was incredible. I started with tomato soup and a pear salad, which were awesome. I moved on to halibut in a corn sauce, positively delicious. Dessert was molten chocolate cake. Highly recommended.
