    1. Our waitress had no knowledge about any of the oyster selections on the menu 2. Our waitress only cared about her two tables besides us 3. We brought two bottles of wine and our waitress hardly came by to pour us more wine when we spent 450+ on the meals and we paid a $30 fee for the bottles to be uncorked 4. The hostess was aggravated when my husband asked if we could sit in a booth and not a table, but found a booth for us 5. The only reason why we came to this restaurant was for the oysters 6. We left this restaurant with bad service and paid a huge bill

    My party enjoyed our food so much. Most of us said that the dish was top 3 or 5 they have had. Appetizers could be a bit larger but were just as tasty. Server was great with being attentive but not overbearing. He gave us great suggestions. We will be coming back.

    The restaurant is very accommodating. Our server, overhearing our discussion of forgetting to bring our reading glasses appeared suddenly at our table side with a perfect pair of reading glasses for us to borrow in hand. It was very kind and helpful. We started with the mussels, which were so delicious. I devoured them and unfortunately did not leave much room for my dinner! I ordered the jumbo shrimp menurie with whipped potatoes and harcot verts. The little I was able to eat was delicious. Although we were glad it was dark because we think it all was swimming in butter, which of course just adds to the deliciousness and the after dinner guilt factor.

    The restaurant was practically empty on Sunday night. However, that is no excuse to blame the customers! Our server & bartender were plainly annoyed to be working that night. The dinner was rushed and perfunctory. By the way our bill was nearly $300. As Atlanta has so many fine dining choices, I will not be returning to C&S.

    Victoria was an awesome waitress and the General Manager had so much energy and brought a lot of life into the establishment. I'm very indecisive when I'm trying new things and he helped me out with making a suggestive choice...which turned out to be the best choice for my liking. The Blackened Salmon was amazing...flaky and tender! My gosh! My friend and I decided to try something new versus another seafood place around the corner and I'm glad we did! We will be back without question and will be bringing more friends!!!

    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.

    Dined on 8/9/2014
    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
