The steak and lobster tails were to DIE for! – We went to the High Cotton for dinner on 6/17/2006 and it was incredible. The wine selection was great, and the waiter catered to our ever need without being pushy or nosey. We requested with our reservation the best and quietest seat in the house and we were in a raised booth along with 2 other booths in the restaurant. There was nobody sitting beside us the whole time. I ordered the filet and lobster tails with mashed potatoes and veggies. It was the BEST steak I've ever had because it was SO TASTY! I ordered 3 more lobster tails for my date and I to share. We drank 3 bottles of some of their good Merlot and probably stayed for 2 hours just eating and drinking. We had a great time! I highly recommend the High Cotton!
Would Not Go Back..... – We had reservation at 10:30 on Sunday for Brunch. We were seated right away. Once seated it took about 10 mins for our waitress to address us. We received some corn bread that had to be left over the night before. Then we ordered the oysters, which were very good and sweet potato wedges. The wedges were very dry and thick. None of us at the table like them. We did have bloody marys and they were tasty. We then ordered the stuff french toast....more like a huge hunk of bread with a little cream cheese in the middle....TERRIBLE! The first time they had to take it back because it was burnt on the bottom and you could not cut through it. They did bring out another which I had wished I had just cancelled.....it just was terrible!! We also had the eggs benedict and flounder omelet. Both were just so so. We all said that we were not come back there are too many good places to eat in Charleston and brunch at High Cotton is not one of them.
Wow! – The steak and wine were excellent. I've been to many fine restaurants and I'd have to say the steak may be one of the best I've ever had. Highly recommend High Cotton.
is there a new chef? – their expresso martinis are to die for, so are their burgers. As far as sitting down for a nice expensive dinner here, it hasnt been impressive for about a year now. Its a good place to start out and listen to jazz but save your food money, there are too many good restaraunts here to waste your time there. sorry guys
Recommended – Less crowded and quieter in the small dining room, which we enjoyed. Can't imagine that we would have liked the restaurant as much in the larger, louder, less romantic dining room. While the entrees were on the pricey side, you certainly get enough food...actually too much! They were delicious but could not finish my lamb chops and I hated to leave a few of them on my plate (they serve a full half rank and I left 3)! The jazz band on Saturday night was wonderful...we even squeezed ourselves into a corner of the bar and had a dance - the wait staff was accommodating in moving around us so that we could enjoy each others company.
Excellent Meal – Excellent menu selection. Food was very good and desert (chocolate valcano soufflé) was wonderful. Had to wait a bit, despite reservation...was very crouded (summer Saturday night).
