    There are so many reasons this gem is soon the celebrate its 50th anniversary. The food is absolutely fantastic, and is consistently so. Staff is lovely, not pretentious but very relaxed and professional. And again, if you are not a vegan/vegetarian, get…the….sweetbreads.

    We came to celebrate our daughter’s birthday. We hadn’t been here for years but will definitely come back more often. The food, drinks and service were all excellent. The 3 seafood appetizers we ordered were to die for! The scallops melted in our mouths. We don’t usually order desserts, but because we were celebrating we tried several and they were all delicious. Very memorable evening!

    I cannot say enough good things about this restaurant. The C&O is such a unique restaurant; it occupies an old diner in a quaint section of town. The ambience is wonderful. The waitstaff is knowledgeable and experienced. And, the food is to die for. Our group shared a few appetizers - mushrooms, fettuccine and scallops - and they were all delicious. The steaks, gnocchi with duck confit and the Rockfish were all wonderful entrees. To top it off, we shared a sticky toffee pudding for dessert - wow! Everyone in our party of four was very satisfied with the meal. We will definitely be back the next time we’re in Charlottesville.
