    C3 is one of our two go-to restaurants in Bloomington. Always get the deviled eggs as an appetizer. And our meals are always wonderful. The staff is lovely and the atmosphere is cozy, upscale, and romantic.

    Fillet steak was well cooked, side dishes were good but very small portions. The place was freezing cold, I noticed many customers were wearing coats while eating.

    You can never go wrong at C3! We enjoyed a festive evening complete with wonderful cocktails and apps followed by a delicious entree course! The service was great, and the bartender went out if his way to prepare us an alternate cocktail when they ran out of one if the ingredients for the Rye Guy that we ordered! If you ever get the opportunity to order a Rye Guy, you should take advantage of it! This is a very tasty cocktail with a very unique presentation!

    What we able to order was excellent. Found it hard to understand why a bar that had many top shelf drinks did not stock tomato juice for a simple Bloody Mary. Then got more confused when they shared they did not have any soft drinks?? Oh forgot they have Mexican coke. Appetizers were excellent but when we when to order dinner the waitress shared they were out of 2 of the 8 items on the menu. Ok I could understand running out of salmon but how do you run out of cheeseburgers. To their credit they offered red fish in place of the salmon and they agreed to blacken it. Overall it was an interesting new place but it left me wondering if I would return. For the prices they charged the limited menu and not having a cheeseburger makes me rate them lower.

    C3 has a great bar and always has new drinks on the menu. The food is mainly small plates and appetizers, but they usually have at least a couple of large entrees. The steak sliders and C3 Burger are always a good choice, and the daily special is usually good as well. Overall - Great place and lots of fun!! Don't forget easy, free parking!!

    Our waiter did not show us a bill before asking us to pay the bill. He had some kind of hand held device and my husband had to ask to see the amount. Also… my husband ordered some kind of lemon pudding cake or something. The portion was so small. It looked like a child’s serving. Also…having to pay for bread??? Crazy, especially with your prices. I ordered coffee. It came out ice cold. And you had no sweetener other than stevia (🤮)

    We celebrated a family birthday with 3 generations of 6 people eating a wonderful meal outdoors in perfect weather on the patio, including a 16-month old who alternated between a grown-up chair and her high chair and various laps. Everyone enjoyed what they ordered and the waitstaff was great, completely patient with our chaos.

    Joined friends at C3 while I was back in Indiana for a few days; still our favorite neighborhood gem—wish we could take it to Colorado! Food was great as always (duck was EGGcellent), and the service was exceptional. Allison, Kat, and the whole staff are great! Too cold and rainy to enjoy the best patio dining in Bloomington, but still got to enjoy our favorite Tuesday Old Fashioned special! Will return every chance I get!
