The food and service are top quality. The friendly and helpful staff are very attentive. The ambiance is perfect for a special night or just a night out for delicious food. The drinks were perfectly blended. Honestly, everything we put in our mouths was amazing. We had oysters, tuna, and calamari for appetizers. We enjoyed a chef's special Chilean bass, crabcakes, and clam chowder for dinner. Unfortunately because of the delicious food and portion sizes, we had no room for dessert.

C&S has excellent food and excellent service. We had the grilled oysters and the branzino fish and they were both outstanding. Their grilled oysters are the best in Atlanta! The atmosphere is so comfortable and Arnold always makes sure everything is perfect. This is one of our favorite places to go because we can always count on it!

In these times the last thing I want to do is write a less than yummy review.
C&S has always been expensive but for me if the food and service is worth it, I am willing to spend the money. I wish I could say it was.

The receptionist looked at us like she was saying "Why are you here?" Granted, this is highly subjective but we certainly did not "feel" welcomed. In actuality, she said very little.

Our waiter came in a timely manner and was pleasant. He told us about the two specials and then left to get my date's drink. I then recalled that whenever I am not told the price of a "Special", my red flag goes up. (I refuse to be made looking cheap by asking the price in front of my date.) So, when he returned, I asked. (My date and I guessed $38 and $40.) Well, the Special was $72.00! I have to admit that it did sound delicious and since we were splitting the dish because we were ordering two dozen oysters we decided to go for it. The seafood dish was good but to me not worth $72!

Oh well....we were there for the grilled oysters. Again, worth eating but it seems that they have changed their recipe; it was gloppy, seemingly overwhelmed by what we thought was butter and/or cheese.

Anything else? Not sure why I had to ask for bread after 30 minutes in an expensive restaurant?

On the plus side, our waiter did bring us mango complimentary sorbet.

Our appetizer - chargrilled oysters - were terrific, we should have ordered two rather than the six oysters in one serving. My wife had the signature gin and tonic which was unique and tasty. Our entrees were also excellent - seafood pasta (shrimp, scallops and mussels) for me, blackened snapper for the wife. Topped this off with bread pudding - delicious - and coffee with Baileys. Our server Darrin was efficient, knowledgeable and cordial. Overall, a memorable dining experience, we will return.

Excellent dining experience, from the appetizers to desserts, everything was outstanding. Our family shared a couple of appetizers, a wide variety of main courses, a couple of desserts, wines and coffee. Our server, Fred, provided just the right amount of "sass" and was very helpful in making our selections (but don't tell him that).

Great service and even more amazing food at C&S for Christmas. We were served by a very knowledgeable server by the name of Darrin, he knew all about the different fish and oysters and helped us select the best dinner possible!

My husband and I have a tradition of going to C & S every year, either on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day. This year, my husband was recovering from a hip replacement surgery he had 4 days before. I called in advance and they accommodated us in every way. The food was wonderful, as always, as was the festive ambiance. My husband always gets a whole lobster and I always start with martinis and oysters. Everything was wonderful. The experience always feels special. We will never stop this Christmas tradition.

Two birthday celebration—have to say that the food was top notch but the server, Freddie stole the show for us! He was professional but funny and attentive and just a total joy! He knew how to balance playfulness with the quality of the food and atmosphere and made the experience much more FUN for us. A few little hiccups with sides but would come back hands down for the entrees, apps and DESSERTS! The steaks were phenomenal! Kudos

Service was horrible. Our order was messed up and our waitress was very lacking in customer service. We had to ask for everything water, napkins, silverware, etc.
