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.

The food was absolutely amazing! Please do yourself a favor and order the grilled oysters, you won't regret it! We also had the tuna tartare which was amazing and so was the Branzino. Remington was incredibly attentive and knowledgeable. I was thrilled with the entire experience and can't wait to go back!

Bin, our waiter was top notch! We didn’t get the seating we wanted. They were very busy. The manager came out herself to apologize and gave us grilled oysters on the house. Not necessary but appreciated and delicious!

The food was better at the other C& S. Main dishes were good but key lime pie was disgusting and the lobster rolls had more veggies than lobsters. Also, my old fashioned was not properly prepared. I was not happy.

This was our first visit to C&S Seafood and Oyster Bar. We were very pleased. We came early so it was not very crowded when we got there. Our server, Todd, greeted us right away. He did a wonderful job of checking on us and explaining the menu. My mom and sister are very particular and he met their needs to keep them happy. The food was delicious. I had some lobster bisque which was very good. I also had lobster for dinner and they offered a half lobster which was perfect after having had the bisque. My mom had fried oysters and ate every one of them which is unusual for her. As time went on more people came into the restaurant but it never seemed crowded. The tables were arranged very well in my opinion even with Covid easing up. I will definitely visit again.

We sat outside on the patio, which was noisy due to traffic on Roswell Road. Ordered the charred oysters as an appetizer, and they were too salty. My grouper was overcooked. The manager took it off the bill, which was not necessar but nice.. Doubt that we’ll go back - too many better places to eat in the area.

Took my mom, sister and brother-in-law as they were in town visiting. The bartender was fabulous. Our server, not so much. He didn’t know about the menu and when asked about the limited lunch menu(which he brought the complete lunch menu), which he didn’t know what was available. Everything my mom asked for was not available. I think(my opinion), both menus should be available during brunch or at least a separate lunch menu for those who want something other than eggs, etc. Overall, I will visit the restaurant again.

They were off tonight for sure. First time to the Sandy Springs location but I would return. Usually we go to Vinings where we’ve never had anything but excellent food and service. I’ll attribute it to COVID related issues. My lobster tail was mediocre. Other entrees were very good and apps and desert were fine. Our waiter was attentive as expected. Salads came out late which collided with dinner. Not sure how that happens. As I said we will be back.

We dine out quite a bit and dont mind spending money on a nice restaurant for a nice meal. The cost of this meal for 5 people was over $100 a person. Yes we had wine and drinks but it was insane. The service was mediocre at best and took forever to get drinks. Won’t go back.
