Seafood
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 have dined at the Vinings location several times but this was our first visit to the Sandy Springs location. The food was excellent and Dylan was a wonderful server.

We started with a dozen oysters - half C&S cups and half blackberry. The blackberry oyster were amazing! The C&S were very good, but slightly more bitter. Our entrees were the entree specialty snapper (that Carolina gold fried rice was SO flavorful) and the nightly special Chilean sea bass Oscar over whipped potatoes with asparagus. The asparagus was cooked perfectly as was the fish. The portions were good sized. Service was wonderful. The only small criticism is that the tables are close together so it’s easy to overhear what’s going on next to you.

Excellent menu with a great variety of seafood entrees (steak options also for those that prefer beef). Nice wine menu. Super attentive staff. Very reasonable prices for the quality AND quantity of food. This was our two year anniversary dinner. C&S will become our go to date night spot.

We had a very nice dinner at C&S Seafood on a Sunday early evening. The restaurant was surprisingly busy - a good sign! Our entrees were excellent, the service merely OK. I'd recommend C&S for those looking for quality seafood in a nice restaurant.

We decided to locate a spontaneous lunch having eatner at the Marietta location before

We tried this nes Sandy Springs location noting
- The chargrilled oysters and praline bacon as appetizers were great
- The cocktail and make your own bloddy mary were both good
- We ened-up splitting banan's foster as the appetizers were so filling A very good (desert like choice)

Our server was attentive/helpful Overall a 9!
I also note the Valet parkringhh - quick and efficient too!

Although I’ve never had a bad experience at their Vinnings location, the food here was absolutely dismal. 45 min for our lunch. The Branzino was hard and oily. Completely inedible. To top it off, my husband was assaulted by an angry man just outside the restaurant. Very scary.

Very fresh seafood. Nice preparation of branzino which is a Mediterranean fish with mild flavor. I requested low sodium which honored and yet the fish was nicely seasoned. I had a delicious shrimp cocktail of jumbo shrimp. My husband had chowder which was a little salty but his grilled scallops were very good. Valet parking was prompt.

Took over 45 minutes just to get the raw oyster appetizer. Waiter seemed distracted. He may have had too many tables to handle. Crowds of people came in wearing gym clothes which I thought was inappropriate.

Food and server were outstanding. However the hostess and her assistant were incompetent. We had reservations and expected a good table. However, we were taken to a table at the back corner of the restaurant that was surrounded by a party of about 12 diners. There were 4 booths available that offered a quiet comfortable place to dine. When we asked about seating at one of those booths we were told that those were for patrons with reservations. After much discussion, we were finally seated and our waitress and food were wonderful. Hostess assigned the table but disappeared and left her assistant to handle the issue although assistant appeared to be in training and wasn’t sure how to handle the situation.

Visiting from our of town. Thought the chowder was a bit watery but the taste was very good. Grilled prawns were excellent as were the sides. Service provided by John was very good. We didn’t get a receipt due to the machine running out of tape. Overall, nice dining experience.

Would recommend for a date night or get together with friends. The service was impeccable and the food was excellent!
Our order consisted of lobster egg rolls, crab cake, a whole humongous fried lobster which the meat was cut up and fried to perfection and came with butter and a remoulade, Caesar salad, crispy Brussels sprouts and washed down with Prosecco! No shame, we were celebrating! Yes we tipped the scale by having crime brûlée and coffee! Like I said we were celebrating life!
Will definitely return for the char grilled oysters which we wanted but really had no room for!
