    We had a reservation and were sat immediately. Service was outstanding, we didn’t wait too long to get our food. Although the food was delicious, I wouldn’t say it was with the price, mainly because of the portion.

    The food was excellent, as was the service. It's a bit pricey for the portion size, but very tasty, and the cocktails were excellent. I only wish they'd bring back the Rye Guy! It was one of my favorites, so I was disappointed to learn that it's no longer on the menu. Sadly, I couldn't even order it off menu.

    C3 is a good restaurant by Bloomington standards. Some of the dishes are very good, and the cocktails are great. Other dishes are not so great, and the cost to eat there is high, again by Bloomington standards. C3 can be pretty loud, which is a bother at times, and the service can be spotty.

    Our meal was good but not great. Drinks were delicious but the jerk chicken tacos had too much spiciness to be memorable. Sliders were small. But the fries were great. If I went back, it would just be for drinks and fries.

    This is one of the best places in Bloomington. The bar is great, lots of inventive cocktails. The manhattans are excellent. The menu is not extensive but what is there is very good. Try the Brussels sprouts, they are unusual and very good. There are chef's specials that vary with a core of other items. The ambiance is nice and the service is excellent. The restaurant is smallish so it's a good idea to make reservations on nights when you might expect larger crowds. We can recommend this place highly. We have eaten here several times and always enjoyed ourselves.

    C3 has become a reliable neighborhood establishment for several years now. The food is outstanding. There are seasonal changes to offerings which are always a delight. We had a Caesar salad, the Mahi Mahi special, a winter navy bean soup, pork tacos, and frites. All prepared perfectly and with much deliciousness! Thank you for a great meal and for getting me out of the kitchen on a cold night.

    Food was excellent. I had the mahi-mahi special and my wife had the roast chicken. We had the tomato bisque and the white bean soup along with the deviled eggs for pre-dinner. Two very nice winter cocktails. One of our favorite places to come.

    Was excited to try due to great reviews. The ambience is very nice, the food and drinks were good but very expensive for the portions, but the service is where it fell apart…it was terrible. Our server disappeared-it took over an hour for our order of a hamburger and the fish special to appear. No one gave us an update. This was a Thursday evening with empty tables and with lots of servers standing around talking while our server was no where to be found. If she was busy in back or had a problem, she could have asked one of the servers standing around to take over. We had to get up and search around to get our bill paid so we could go. Disappointing because I feel it’s such a cute place with a nice menu.

    The bar is outstanding, they make a really nice Manhattan. The dinner menu is a bit limited with chef's specials and lots of small plates. This is not meant as a criticism since the serving sizes are perfect for us. The food preparation and presentation is outstanding. Everything we have ordered has been excellent. I particularly like the Brussel Sprout preparation which comes with the Caesar salad. I know it sounds atypical but it's delicious. The servers are personable and efficient. We just love this place and consider it one of our go to places in Bloomington.
