The “chefs Burger” was SERIOUSLY delicious! Three out of four of us had burgers- and all three of us loved them! I ordered mine medium well, it came out medium rare, BUT- it was actually really good, so I ate it & didn’t complain. My mom let me taste the sliders- They were SOOOOO delicious. I’ll get those the next time!
The deviled eggs were delish, but six halves for $8 was a little pricey. Drinks were great, service was wonderful, atmosphere was a little dark and dreary back in the corner. All in all, it was a winner!

They have a new air handling system that is Antibacterial. Lots of outdoor seating & good spacing for indoor. They are compliant with the mask mandate still in place in Monroe Co. The food is good & cocktails are creative. Upscale with good service.

Always can count on a nice meal at C3 - and when you really want comfort food burger - the C3 burger gets it done. But they have great main dishes that are elegant. Great wine list, too. Large patio for seating outside if the weather cooperates.

We came for the live music and had such a great time! Our waiter was very attentive and the food didn’t take too long. Great crab dip, salad and gnudi! Also really enjoyed our drinks!

The food here is excellent, the prices moderate-high. C3 boasts a long and varied bar menu. During the Covid months, it had outside tents and open air outside seating which is hard to find in Bloomington. Noise level inside the restaurant can get pretty loud, another reason to go outside if possible.

Outstanding as always! Weather was great for outside dinning and the meal was delicious. For me, Allison and her Team have come up with with variety of Non-Alcoholic drink specials using new non- ABV spirts and they are fantastic. If you like gin and tonic or old fashions they have them on the cocktail menu as well as others; their craftsmanship are superb.

The cocktails at this place are a true delight. I had the French Butterfly a gin drink with creme de violette. Pretty and tasty. I had their mushroom soup and the salmon with cous-cous. All really good with great presentation. And then there was the Chocolate Budino. That alone was worth the trip even if I had to walk the 11 miles from my house, lol! The service was a great and the atmosphere calming, just what I need after a hectic day at work.

All food was great but be sure to start with the In Bloom cocktail if you are a gin drinker or even if you are not! Next do the crab dip loaded with real blue crab. Had the Gnudi, a great vegetarian option. The Chocolate Budino is the best chocolate pudding in your life! Service was excellent, parking easy (that's important in B'ton!) and ambience relaxing.

I really appreciated that they have a heated tent available for dining. It was comfortable and the tables were quite far apart. Because of this and the staff all masked, it felt safe. I miss dining in but this was great. My cocktail and the desert were particularly good.

I normally don't write bad reviews but this one is justified. We had reservations last Friday for four. We were excited to try something new since we always go to the same places when we visit Bloomington. When we arrived we were greeted by a very surly and unwelcoming hostess. We gave her our name and she said she didn't have any tables in the restaurant but there were some tables open in the temporary tent area. Not the vibe we wanted so we told her we would wait. I asked if we could get some drinks and she said no the bar was closed and they couldn't serve us outside where we found a table next to other diners who were eating and drinking. A very nice waiter came up to us (Andrew) and asked us if we wanted a drink. He was awesome and unfortunately the only positive thing we experienced at C3. After ten minutes of waiting our table was ready and they took us to a space that looked like a walk-in closet with only one table in the small space. I understand its COVID and restaurants are doing the best they can. I asked another hostess if they could find another spot for us. Well the other surly hostess was about to pour us water at this table and totally sulked and pouted as we asked for something else. We ended going out to the tent seating (aka wedding vibe) with a few other diners in the super bright atmosphere to wait. Nobody came to serve us except for friendly Andrew who delivered our drinks that we ordered out front. We decided to leave after that and not give them our business. C3 feels like a local suburban neighborhood place that was incredibly unwelcoming to outsiders. Got the "New York City" attitude in the middle of a neighborhood in Bloomington? Not sure they got the memo that they are located in the burb's in Bloomington not NYC! I regret not talking to the manager before I left. Anyway would not recommend this restaurant to any one who visits Bloomington. Stay downtown where they want and appreciate your business.
