Clark and Schwenk, friends over the years, discussed starting a place of their own and traded ideas over what the menu would be like. Finally, at the beginning of 2007, they felt ready to strike out on their own and made that vision happen. “I looked around Atlanta and saw a need for a really good old-school restaurant,” Clark says. That restaurant would become C&S Oyster Bar, specializing in classic New York and Paris brasserie-style cuisine. Clark possesses a passion for French cuisine and claims that it comes from the French’s appreciation for balance. Their focus on vegetables, fish, and meat as the primary vehicles of flavor allow for emphasis to be placed on the freshness of the ingredients.

We were reluctant to book a reservation based on some recent Open Table reviews. After studying the nature & content of those reviews, and the menu, we decided to make a reservation last night.

I can tell you that this was the best dining decision we've made, ever! The food selection, presentation, portions, and quality was superb. The pricing was in line with other fine dining restaurants we frequent.. The serving staff was professional, all waiters in crisp white jackets. Our waiter, Bobby, was professional and welcoming in all respects...he did not pass by our table a single time without observing our progress and anticipating our needs, without being intrusive.

We've found our newest favorite restaurant. So pleased we took a chance!

Writing this review as a testament to the difference a few miles can make. First reservation was for C&S in Vinings. We will NEVER visit that location again. We arrived and were seated promptly. After about :10 Shanik (?) acknowledged us and said she’d be right back. Gave us waters and a few pleasantries and we mentioned we were celebrating a birthday. And that was it… we sat for another :15 and watched her take care of 3 or 4 other tables without any other acknowledgement that we were present. We left and made a reservation for :30 later at C&S in Sandy Springs. Again, seated immediately and Matt was the complete opposite. Warm, friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. I’m sure we’ll have standing reservations 🙂

The only table we could reserve was an outside table. I had called ahead and had asked if there was heating. The hostess said there was overhead heating and heaters beside each table. We of course ended up on the last table, so there was no heater on one side of our table, the overhead heater was not on for the first 10 minutes. The rest of the evening we were freezing. I should have known better.

Great experience. Great food, great service. Was there with my girl. We both love seafood and went to this place off a suggestion. The food did not disappoint. For appetizers we calamari and the jumbo crab cake(they should call it jumbo) however my girl who has tasted good all over the world said it’s one of the best crab cakes she’s ever had. Entrees were shrimp and sea bass. Both were excellent. We’ll definitely be back.

Our waitress Sarah was absolutely delightful!! She is five star!! The tuna was amazing, roasted oysters always amazing, great salads! Sadly they were out of crab claws. Fabulous and unique drink menus and good wine menus.
Only distraction was a crying young child at the table next to us that was not pleasant, not the fault of the restaurant but at a place that nice and pricey I suggest not bringing small children who can’t sit still and/or not cry.

The food and service were second to none. The only issue (and this was likely not the norm) was that there was a birthday group at the bar and there were 2 or 3 women in the group that were constantly yelling, screaming, laughing loudly and frankly just being way over the top. Our table was hearby and it made it impossible to have a normal conversation. Thank goodness they left about 45 minutes after we were seated. Hopefully this is a one time thing because it would keep me from being a regular that the Roswell Road location.

It was so incredibly noisy when we arrived. They need a larger space! Luckily we were seated upstairs which was much better.
Service was impeccable. She was attentive but not bothersome. Answered all our questions very well.
Two of us had the crab cake. There was nothing to complain about at all but it didn’t blow your mind like others I’ve had. Another person had the red snapper. Again, it wasn’t bad. It was just ok. My husband had a pasta with different types of seafood and he loved his.
Thé crème brûlée and Espresso martini were excellent.
