We love C3, but on this particular night, we were seated next to a table of six women who were really loud. We could not carry on a conversation it was so loud. We asked to be moved and the hostess moved us.

Enjoyed our visit and so did our guests. Small plates are always a good idea. However menu is dated and could use expanding. Great calamari my wife enjoyed the soup and sandwich. I had the steak sliders which were good.

A bit quiet tonight—probably due to IU basketball game this evening. Excellent food as always, and Kat was on point with spectacular service! Can’t go wrong with any item in the C3 menu!

The menu was extremely limited and while it is a bar/cocktail place, there wasn't the ability to order a Coke or Pepsi. The C3 burger was absolutely amazing and the fries were probably some of the best I've ever had.

Trendy restaurant in a little "village" of apartments and retail space in Bloomington, a little hard to find in the dark if you are not a local. We selected a variety of small plates, including a rich creamy soup, tasty salad and tacos, and spicy Asian-inspired beef tips. I heard their unique deviled eggs were a specialty appetizer, but, alas, cannot comment, because I was not tempted to try smoked salmon and roe eggs which was the selection of the evening. Server was very gracious and helpful.

There were four of us (celebrating one couples birthday month) and two of us ordered the duck special and two of us the fish special (trout). Everything was excellent. (I would have liked a little more seasoning on the trout. It would be nice to have some salt and pepper shakers on the table.) Most outstanding was the wait person. She knew a lot about the cocktails and the wine and was able to make wonderful recommendations! (I'm sorry I forgot her name.) That is a rare event and I want to again thank her. She just added to a wonderful experience.

Food is excellent; very tasty with a variety of seasonings and ingredients in the polenta. Drinks were held up at the bar by sitting there instead of being served to our table. Table not great; in the path of the kitchen. Host seated us here when other tables were available, however, maybe we looked so good/trendy that he wanted us to be seen! Thank you, we really loved it! 10/18/2019

Enjoyed a beautiful October evening dining on the best patio in Bloomington! We will be sorry to see the patio dining season end. Started with the deviled eggs, then I had the Caesar salad and smoked pork chop, while everyone else enjoyed the roasted butternut squash purée soup and the small plate special: blue crab cakes that rival any you will have in Maryland! Can’t beat the old fashioned (especially on Tuesday). Scrumptious food and drink, excellent service as always!

We sat outside in perfect weather, probably out last chance for this year. Our food and service were very good, and because it was early evening, the noise level from other diners was not bad. Our group of four always enjoys having appetizers and drinks at C3.

A lovely evening on the best patio dining experience in Bloomington. This evening’s deviled eggs were delicious. We split a Caesar salad (perfect as always); I had the pork medallions from the evening’s specials, while she enjoyed the C3 burger from the regular menu. Our dinner companion had the crab cake and fried green tomatoes special, which was wonderful!

Allison and her staff always see to it the their guests experience exemplary service, while Chef Matthew and his crew work their magic in the kitchen.

Perfect patio. Expertly crafted cocktails. Exemplary service. If you’ve not been, come. If you have been, we’ll see you Tuesday!

Great experience as usual. The wine tasting event while a bit crowded was a nice affair. The selection of wine was very good and of top quality. The wait staff accommodated us during the tasting while keeping our table for our dinner. The food was great, with the fish of the day full of flavor and cooked just right. The polenta was delicious, rich and full of variety. We enjoyed our appetizers and meal with the Rose wine of the day. Recommend C3 for the food, wine and cocktails.
