My husband and I have gone to the cottonwood grille at least a dozen times and have never been disappointed! The service is impeccable and we have always been made to feel very special, and have never been rushed. The ambiance is wonderful, casual elegance at its best. We have been in there in a pair of jeans and have dined in our best finery, you won't feel out of place in whatever you arrive wearing. Their menu is great, my husband is partial to the surf and turf. I absolutely love a special they seem to have quite a bit of scallops. They are the size of small baseballs and have the most wonderful sauce, I believe it was a saffron cream sauce. I wanted to lick the plate. I have also had their wonderful Ruby trout, succulent smoked pork chops, amazing chicken filled pasta, and many other dishes that I can't find any fault with. We are San Francisco transplants and are avid restaurant goers, and this place can rival the best in the bay. Don't forget the dessert menu that is massive! Also, if you are a wine drinker, be glad to know that you can get Caymus Cabernet by the GLASS! Unheard of! Don't miss out on this place, you will feel very satisfied when you leave! If you are looking for a great date night place, this is it by far!\r
Pros: Everything, especially the value for fine dining.
Cons: sometimes hard to get a reservation for special occasions, book early
