    I have dined here several times - always have had an excellent meal. They are happy to prepare any of the fish they have any way you like it, and the sauces and seasonings are great. Don't be put off by the fact that it is hidden in the Kroger strip mall...it is a gem!

    Very disappointing service. We were a group of 5 with a reservation. We were seated next to the kitchen and bathroom instead of a closer table that was never occupied. I told the host stand that we needed to be finished within an hour. After 1 hour, we did not have entrees. My fish was good. I had to leave my corporate credit card with staff to pay when I had to leave for another appointment. Disappointing service for the price paid. Food was good.

    Never have i been treated with more disdain by a restaurant. We were seated fairly quickly. we did arrive 5 minutes earlier than our reservation. This is where things started going south. We were ignored by the serving staff for at least 10 minutes. Eventually we were acknowledged and given menus. My wine arrived within 5 minutes but the unsweet tea took almost 20 minutes and then only after asking again. The only way i can explain the oysters is that they were flat. The shrimp was big but totally overcooked. We decided to end our evening right there. We asked for the check and it was sort of just thrown on the table. Nobody ever enquired after our experience. This was possibly the worst experience i ever had in a restaurant.

    This esd the first visit and we were a lil surprised by how tight the seating was. We had a party of for and sat against the wall facing the bar. The servicer (Nick) was outstanding. He was attentive, professional, helpful and knowledgeable. The food was delicious, oysters rock and charbroiled were great. Truffle oil chips simply to die for !! Parmesesn crusted founder was great. Lastly, the drinks were also great !!

    Why get caught in the traffic on Atlanta's freeway system? Stay in the suburbs for the many fine choices offered by C & S. A local Vinings area seafood restaurant displaying fresh fish on ice prepared the way you like it makes it happen. Bring the steak lovers along as my BW and I shared a enormous 22 oz.bone in Rib Eye with great sides. Opened the dining experience with an over sized shrimp cocktail washed down with great cocktails. A fine meal in a comfortable quiet dining venue.

    What do you say when the service is better than the food? Dinner was OK; service was better. Coffee was good; dessert was limited. While the restaurant was cool enough on a hot/humid summer night, the ventilation (i.e. the ability of the open kitchen to properly vent the fish and oil odors) was poor. Doesn't rate a return trip.

    Family night out for some great times and great food! We had a private corner booth which made this a wonderful conversation evening for us. I had the king crab entrée which was outstanding! Highly recommended as they have a vast menu and well done! Great service and a neighborhood hideaway! Enjoy!

    The steak was exceptional. The scallops tasted grainy (as if unclean) and both the scallops and potatoes had a weird taste as if they were prepared in dirty water. The sauce for the scallops was overwhelming and too thick (I would advise you to order light sauce...or just stay away from the scallops entree). The hostess denied our request for a booth telling us there were none available, however, we saw 2 booths that were unused. 'We requested a booth again, and she provided one. Lastly, the crowd was older than expected.

    C&S is a great place. I have been here numerous times and the food and service are excellent. They have a nice wine list as well. However, on our recent visit a number wines on the list were sold out, which was a disappointment. Other than that, it was a great visit as always.

    Brought hubby here for his birthday! First timers and we were not disappointed. The food was spot on each course. I started with a bloody mary, very tasty with a New orleans touch. I loved the salmon carpaccio and he enjoyed the chopped salad. He ordered the Salmon for his entree and I had grilled shrimp. Delicious! Would have liked a walk around before they sat us right next to the door so i could comment on the ambience……;/. I did not see the cold seafood bar. That is my only comment we literally were seated right behind the hostess stand i faced out…. that is all i saw INCREDIBLE FOOD HERE. we enjoyed it thoroughly.

    The overall restaurant was excellent. This was my first time visiting and most of all it was my birthday. I was highly recommended by friends and family. The service was superd. I live closer to the city but I would drive here for a nice dinner. Thanks for bringing fine dining to the Vinings without all the traffic and hustle and bustle. We made reservations for 8:00pm the hostess escourted us immediately with no wait. The servers were very attenative. They knew the menus, suggested entrees as well as the appetizers that satisfy your taste.

    I am not much of a seafood person, but my husband is and we both enjoyed what we ordered. They have plenty of choices and I ended up trying a seafood dish! It was so good. The waiter was really fun and interacted with us. We enjoyed our visit and will be returning. Don't let the shopping center distract you away from such a great place.

    seared tuna salad; tuna over cooked, entire dish covered in crushed peanuts so that is all you could taste. Restaurant was very dark and I'm pretty sure my lettuce was brown but could not get flash lite app out to check because it would have embarrassed my customer who suggested it. Also the waiter said there were NOT noodles in salad, and their were. he didn't know his stuff.

    Having worked many years in the seafood industry, I can be hard to please. I recently busted C&S and enjoyed the best flounder that I've had since moving to Atlanta 20 years ago. It was as moist and as flavorful as one could ever expect. Cooked to perfection. Service could have been better as it was on the slow side and it wasn't bust but the food was great.

    My family ate at C&S two nights ago. We have averaged eating here at least once a month for many years. This meal was very poor. My scallops tasted like lighter fluid and even after having them remade twice, they were unedible. (They did comp these btw). Kids gumbo was good flavor wise, but each had only one piece of sausage and only a couple of shrimp. Mostly broth. Waiter was pleasant but forgot two items we ordered. And then at the end, he was talking up front and we waited 10-15 minutes after we were finished before getting the check. When we arrived, two bartenders who were off were complaining about having to split their shifts..lots of cursing including f--ks. My young children heard them and I was furious. Totally inappropriate.

    I recently relocated to Atlanta and was in search of my favorite restaurants in several different categories. Needless to say, my search for my favorite seafood is over. The assortment of fresh fish, shellfish and oysters are incomparable. Combine that with top-notch service, friendly patrons and a great bar makes this place a special gem.

    We had been to Hugo's and the waitress told us that C&S had a larger oyster selection so we went. Went on a Monday and there was not a lot of people there. We were able to sit along the back wall together and watch the baseball game as we ate and talked. The oysters were great, the service was great and the entrees were great. It is definitely pricey but we knew that going into the meal so more of a special occasion joint for us. I would go other times just for oysters though if they had any deals or specials on them
