Caleb was the BEST! From my pineapple martini, to RC's grilled oysters, to my husband's sea bass and my grilled grouper. Couldn't have asked for a better, long overdue date night! Repeat visit for me, first for my husband - we will be back!

Had a wonderful date night with the husband here. First timer and I will definitely be back. The drinks were well made, the fish special was amazing , and the waitress was on her game. The cherry bread pudding was to die for.

Even on Valentine’s Day, when the restaurant was very busy, the food was excellent and the service was impeccable. Excellent in all respects.

This is our second time coming to this restaurant. I made reservations for 6:00 pm, expressly selecting and specifically requesting a full-booth. We got there at 5:50, but there was no booth available. They offered us a half-booth, which wasn't in our plans--at all. So we found a table where the patrons were about to leave and told the hostess that we'd wait for that booth to open. A 10-15 minute wait and we had the booth.
Both of us ordered the Manhattan Clam Chowder as appetizer--It was not as good as the last time I had it and was WAY too salty. The bread did not come out till we had almost finished our soup. After that, I was nervous about the main course. However, the fish were PHENOMENAL!
I had the Chilean Sea Bass (blackened) with the soy-chili sauce on the side. My date had the Grouper (market). The Grouper was very good, and the bass was simply excellent. Recommend both dishes, highly. For dessert, I had the creme brulee and he had the lava chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream. Both were also good.
Alex our server was also WONDERFUL. All in all, a very good outing. Only issues were the super salty soup and the wait, in spite of having a reservation. What's the point in asking if you want a booth and not having one when you specifically do in your reservation?
It wasn't a deal breaker though. It WAS Valentine's Day and maybe that had to do with the snafu? Will go there again, on a less busy day to see if it works out better, logistically.
If you've not been here, I can wholeheartedly recommend that you go--mind you, it IS expensive fare. But if you're looking to splurge for a special occasion, if you order the right dishes, you'll get enough to eat and will come away with a having eaten a delicious, satisfying dinner! Don't let the strip-mall setting fool you. You definitely won't be out of place if you decide to dress up a bit! :)

Food was just okay. The sea bass was not good and it was the special. Drinks were way overpriced and seating was tight. Not a romantic atmosphere. Service was alright. We will return, but never again on Valentines Day.

Excellent food and service, a bit loud but overall a great place for a special occasion. Little on the high side price wise.

I have passed by this location for a long time and finally looked it up and was pleasantly surprised. My wife and I would always go to the Atlanta Fish Market, but began to find it getting stale and always crowded. The quality of the seafood and everything we had was excellent.

We had a wonderful anniversary dinner at C&S. Our waiter Darren was great he explained everything and went above and beyond. We will be asking to sit at his table on our next visit. Food was excellent. Oysters were to die for. I had tuna steak that was cooked perfectly. The shrimp and goat cheese beignets are a must. Even the desserts were delightful, we had the key lime pie and the bread pudding. We will definitely be coming back.

We were four for a late lunch. We ordered only these items: Lobster Cobb Salad, Manhattan Clam Chowder, and Oysters Rockefeller. The chowder is the best ever, anywhere. Each spoonful was loaded with clams. The Lobster Cobb salad was similarly loaded with lobster. The Oysters Rockefeller are also top of the line, well done and properly presented. The service was excellent as usual, and our server, “Junior” (Kyle the Younger) was attentive, got it all right and made the visit most enjoyable. Three of our party had never been there before, but all will return.

Unfortunately, we went on the night before the Super Bowl and some bean counter decided that it was a great idea to only order enough food for everyone eating early. Our reservation was at 9:00 and , by the time we arrived, they were out of all white fish and all the steaks (beef)! As we ate our second choice dinners, we watched as the other items quickly got 86'd. The only saving grace was our waiter Dewitt who made the evening very enjoyable.

We love C & S and will return but not the night before the Super Bowl!!!

We did not enjoy our service at all...We had been to C&S several times before and had good experiences...This past Saturday was very disappointing for my wife and I...We made reservations a week before dinner...We got there and were not seated for 15-20 minutes...We were finally jammed into a very large table next to the door...It was cold, and people waiting in line for a table were standing right in front of us...The table area was so dark we could not even read the menu...Then came the service...Every course we ordered took a life time to get there...We had to wait over 15-20 minutes between each course: the wine, oysters, salads and entrees...We were never kept informed of why the waits, how long to expects the waits to be, how we ere doing, how was the food, etc., etc. Overall a bad experience...When you are going to spend $300+ for a quiet evening with the wife, I expected much more...Sorry for the bad review...

The service was terrible. She forgot our order and had to come back to the table (after about 30 minutes) for us to repeat it. Perhaps she should write it down. Then she got our credit cards mixed with the table beside us. Really bad.
We were seated in the window. VERY dark. Had to ask for a candle to see the menu and that didn't work either. Don't sit at the two tables in the window if you want to even partially see your menu or food. Unbelievable.
The food was delicious. Great bar. Just a terrible table area that should not be used for dinner seating.

Last 2 times we have waited an exorbitant amount of time for our meal. This time took 55 minutes after our appetizers to get out two meals. The food is great so it is extremely disappointing. After the last time we thought we would try again and the same thing happened again.
