Tried it for the third time and have finally found the secret to having a great time at C&S. Rule #1 Sit at the bar. Rule #2 Order whatever you want, but only when you want it served. Rule #3 Let the beautiful and talented, Virginia, do

Attentive Service, Good Drinks, and offerings were diverse. Some menu items like the whipped potatoes had no flavor. The Chef forgot to put any sweetener whatsoever in the Crme Brulet desert. At the end of the evening we felt we had

Great location. Great customer service. I'm not a seafood fan but there are a lot of other other options. Thumbs up.

the oysters are good but i've tasted better in other places. the ambiance was nice, i got seated in a booth and was served immediately. i had high expectations because it is a seafood and oyster bar, but the food was just so and so. I'm giving it 3 stars for the service and the ambiance.

With our recent move to Atlanta from South Carolina, I was thrilled to have an "Oyster Bar" in my area, as I have been eating seafood of every type imaginable since I was a child. My husband and I entered and were pleasantly surprised by the decor. It's "swank", I would say, and had a bar and booths which felt relaxed. Based on recommendations from reviews, as well as our own tastes, we had several things. The truffle fries as an appetizer were thin, crisp, covered with parmesan and reminiscent of truffle. These were by far the best dish of the evening. I had 2 dozen raw oysters of various types and they were so-so in quality. . .which disappointed me only because they were at least $2 each! We had the mussels in white wine sauce, which were HORRID. In fact, they smelled terrible and tasted foul, as in spoiled. We immediately sent them back, however could not get the spoiled taste out of our mouth for days. I had the tilapia cooked meniere style, which was terribly overcooked, dry, and somewhat fish-y in taste. All in all, my husband wanted to give this place only one star because along with this terribly unsatisfying meal was an exorbitant price tag. I'm not kidding you, this place is way overpriced, especially for this quality of preparation. I'm giving it two stars because the ambiance is nice as were the truffle chips. Steer clear from the seafood here, however. . .I can cook it better at home. . .and so can you.

Pros: Nice atmosphere

Cons: Spoiled seafood

Had dinner Friday night at C and S for the first time. Pimm's Cup at the bar, wow! The calamari appetizer was literally the best I have ever had. My swordfish au pouivre was ok, but my friend's grilled shrimp with lemon buerre blanc and spinach was outstanding. Excellent service in an upscale atmosphere but still completely relaxed. I'll go again!

my husband and I went for our anniversary and it was a great experience! We were greeted when we entered the restaurant with smiling faces and were seated very promptly. They had a wide variety of wines and fun mixed drinks. Service and food were both amazing!! We are calamari "buffs" and it was the best we have ever had!! We will definately be returning!!

Pros: best calamari in town

Cons: none

This has to be my favorite restaurant in Atlanta. After 4 different wonderful experiences, I have finally made the verdict. My husband and I absolutely love this restaurant. The appetizers are to die for, especially the calamari, homemade chips and tuna tartar.
My husband is a steak eater and swears they have the best steak in town. I only eat the fish. It is so fresh always and prepared in the best possible way. We are always greeted with a warm smile and our service has been nothing less than impeccable. It is so nice to go to a fancy restaurant and really be able to enjoy the dining experience and freindly staff, along with wonderful food. I just can't say enough good stuff about this place.....you HAVE to go check it out. They should put me on their payroll because I am telling everyone I see to go to C&S Oyster Bar!

Pros: best seafood selection in town

Cons: not open for breakfast :)

My wife and I love this restaurant. We have been dining here since it opening a few years ago. The servers are on par and their seafood is prepared the best I have ever had in a landlocked city.
I have read some of the other reviews and am questioning if you got the name of the restaurant correct. The service here is unsurpassed. I am a retired Colonel and have very high expectation when it comes to service and respect and have nothing but incredible experiences every time we have dined in this establishment. Do yourself a favor and try it!

Pros: freshest seafood around

My husband and I had dinner there last night for the first time. We just moved to Vinings from Chicago. What a treat. We started with the Blackberry Point oysters and and goat cheese beingets they were both excellent. For main course I had the Salmon with Truffle butter and hubby had the NY Strip both were fantastic. Tim S. was our server and he was 5 star.

I highly recommend this restaurant for anyone looking for great seafood or steaks

Pros: Food and Service

Cons: In Kroger Shopping Center

.

I was appalled by the lack of training that our server had - either he was a complete idiot on the art of dining or he just did not care that we were paying customers trying to enjoy a nice evening. As soon as we were seated our server seemed annoyed that we were at his table for some reason? He spilled water and wine each time he refreshed our glasses so by the end of the meal our table was soaked. We ordered a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc and after he poured our first glass (and about a of a glass ended up being on the table) he asked if we would like it on ice. We said ??yes please? ?? his response? a disgruntled sigh like he could not believe we would like our wine to remained chilled. It was almost comical. Throughout the evening, he never once asked how we were, never once smiled and never once said ??thank you? or ??you??re welcome?. The best was got was a grunt. He also basically threw the silverware down between courses as well as our plates.
The highlight of the meal has to be the water service. There must be a competition with the servers on who can pour the most water throughout the evening. Serously ?? aren??t we supposed to be conserving water? Many times throughout the night I asked that he stop refreshing my glass with water. This was for 3 reasons ?? 1. He kept spilling water on me and the table, 2. My glass was completely full of ice from the previous pours and 3. I was not thirsty ANYMORE! He simply ignored my request. I finally said ??I do not want any water? and he said he ??had to pour it because management had video cameras taping water service? ?? What??? When he came for the final time I said ??please, no more water? and had to put my hand over my glass ?? he poured it on my hand and said ??I have to pour you water?. I replied ??no you do not; I do not want any more water, thank you?. His reply ?? ??I have 50,000 people watching me so I have to give you water?. I said ??no you do not?. He said ??give me your glass I am going to take it away?. I said ??no, I would like to keep my glass with the little bit of water I have?. He proceeded to argue with me causing a scene at our table and I finally said ??I am the guest, I wish for no more water and would like to keep my glass, please leave?. Needless to say we paid our bill right away.

The food was great- I had the Porcini Salmon. However, I will NEVER step one foot into this restaurant ever again. There is ABSOULTLY NO excuse for the lack of respect we received by IVAN B. ?? our waiter.

Waffle House has 1,000 times better service than C&S - but if you have to go and you get a server named IVAN ?? ask for a new server immediately!

This beautifully furnished restaurant in the heart of vinings is perfect. You really do forget where you are when you step in. I guess I'll start with the impeccable service. Everyone there was so attentive and catered to my every need. Now to the food. The food was out of this world. I started with the calamari, all of which were cooked to perfection. For my entree I had the scallops, cooked the way the waiter suggested, grilled and topped with the lemon wine sauce. He really knew his stuff and they could not have been better. For dessert I had the creme brule, one of my favorites. Although it is one of my favorites it was truly the best I have ever had. So rich and creamy and the top was caramelized perfectly. All in all one of the best experiences at a restaurant I've ever had and definitely the best seafood I've ever had.

I loved c& s the first two times I went. Then it seemed to slide

The salmon was not so good the last time. I hated their anniversary specials. Way too much sauce bloating the salmon. Service is not so great for such prices. It could be the best seafood, but they need to be more consisitient. I may try it one more time. The valet is very overbearing

I feel forced to valet, and it should be a choice.. Good wine list, except for the horrid wines by the carafe. Those took me back to college days and seem out of place in that enviroment. Save that for the pizza joints

Oysters are good, but too expensive

I still prefer Oceanaire, especially with lower gas prices

C&S was recoommended to me by a friend because I am such a food snob I have a hard time finding restaurants I love. Well I LOVE C&S!!!!
It is my new favorite restaurant. The oysters rockafeller are to die for and their seafood selection is unsurpassed. But don't forget the steak. My husband only eats steaks (goood steaks, he is a food snob also) and he says they have the best steaks in the area.
You have to try it!

If you love raw oysters, clams, or any other seafood, try this place. There are few places with fresher seafood in landlocked Atlanta. Bring your Amex or a fat wallet, because it's not cheap. Dinner including drinks and appetizer will easily be over $100. They also serve brunch.

Went for lunch today. Thoroughly enjoyed the whole dining experience. Drinks, very good. Bartender obviously a real pro. Wait staff, excellent. Ambience, really wonderful primarily because of the jazz playing in the background. A little Miles Davis and I'm good to go. Seating good, I could go on. So wanted to stay and sit at the bar for some more of the barkeeps concoctions but couldn't and get home legally. Boo hoo. Food? Really good. Gazpacho not of the chunky variety but still very good. Seafood tacos really yummy. Caesar?s salad just great.....Po' boy great. Dessert; bread pudding good, key lime concoction outstanding. Not one hitch in the action here. We'll go back for sure.

My visit to C & S was truly a memorable one. Right from the get-go, with the complimentary valet parking and attractive ambience, this place had already set a good tone for my liking. I personally LOVED the bread, and the calamari was cooked to perfection. The oysters and clams were good, but they were a bit too soggy, and the king crabs were delicious. I look forward to returning sometime because I was highly impressed.

Service was great. Food was fair at best. Lobster bisque is really a lobster broth. Chips could have been good, but they fried it in oil that should have been changed. Escargot was overcooked and covered in very tasteless breadcrumbs....terrible. Seafood platter was fair. King crab was acceptable. Shrimp had NO flavor and clams were not fresh (fishy). The oysters were very tasty. Small neck clams in wine sauce could have been tasty, instead too much parsley. That's all I could taste.

This place has so much potential to be great, but won't be going back.

The food is Amazing!! My husband ordered the bone in filet mignon cooked to perfection. I had the king crab legs and it tasted so fresh....soooo fresh it seemed like Alaska was right in their backyard. I must say the lobster bisque was the best I ever had! I highly recommend this restaurant. Great wine selection too! OH and the bread pudding a must!! The service was excellent! Please ask for Courtney, Matt or Taylor...these three know the true meaning of southern hospitality! Compliments to Chef Jon and hats off to Mr. and Mrs. Clark. The Brat Pack gives you 5 stars and two thumbs up!

This is a very nice upscale seafood restaurant in the vinings area. My husband and I had the Calamari, Rainbow trout, Sea Bass, and Key Lime tart. They were all fabulous. The Hemingway dacquiri was also wonderful. The couple next to us got the steamed oysters and the crab stuffed lobster. They said they thoroughly enjoyed both. I reccomend getting reservations if you want a table. We were abele to sit at the bar immediately when we got there since we did not have a reservation. It was full service and very nice. The service was impeccable.

The food was okay, the hospitality could be a little better. I think they can make the portion bigger. Should add a salad bar, for the healthy eating people.

General manager Rich Clark and executive chef Jon Schwenk used their surname initials to create the name of this jointly owned operation. The restaurant occupies a large space in a basic suburban grocery store mall, but is so stylishly…
