Casual yet still elegant dining, fabulous outdoor patio to give you plenty of space and feel the warmth of the sun. Love the grapefruit soda, caesar salad, frites and burger! Also the best bartenders mixing classic and creative cocktails with mastery and taste.

Delicious, well-crafted drinks and dining on Bloomington’s east side. Great prices for high quality. The outdoor table was wobbly.

Best cheeseburger in town and great calamari!! House salad also good. Menu could have more fish entrees and drinks could improve on their beers and wine was a bit expensive but took advantage of their $10 off on battles of wine.

C3 never disappoints; whether it’s the food, atmosphere, people or service this is simply a relaxing but lividly boutique restaurant & bar. They provide outstanding service and certainly don’t rush you through dinner like some other restaurants in town. Allison is the manager and she takes special interest to make sure everyone is getting the experience they expect and she is quick to provide extra attention if needed or desired. This is a must stop on your restaurant list while in Bloomington.

The food was yummy BUT our waitress took 15 minutes to come over and was rude when she did. After we ordered she never came back but once with our cocktails. She didn’t even get us water we had to ask a waiter walking by TWICE!

This was our first time trying C3 bar. To me the food was just ok with the exception of the Caesar salad which came with brussel sprouts which was an interesting twist. An order of bread was $5 which I thought was excessive as they were just warm rolls with butter. My vegetable tangine lacked flavor, while my husband's chicken dish was very good.

We had a great time here - as always. It was Tiki Week and I got the chance to try a new drink. The bar is always very inventive and comes up with some great offerings. Had the Cassoulet with crispy duck leg - it was delicious!!

Overall very good. Only issue is they brand themselves a cocktail bar but a guest in my dining party ordered a flavored martini and they did not have it. Offered a lemon drop instead. Hint: Not the same. Food was fantastic and I knew the price going in so wasn’t surprised. Ambience is dim and relaxing. Service didn’t blow me away but certainly more than adequate.

The Tiki theme was interesting but we were challenged a bit when we wanted to order from the normal cocktail list? Not what I would expect from this establishment. Noise level was high, but it was Friday night

This place was a hidden gem! The prime rib sliders and fries were to die for along with their broccoli and cheddar soup that was a special. I was slightly disappointed with the chicken dish - it was dried out and felt like it was missing something. In addition, the bread was wonderful too. I would highly recommend the drinks as they are on rotation too so they always have something new. I wish they would post the specials online so I would know what kind of soups they have, etc. However, I will be going back for the sliders/fries/bread/drinks.

C3 is one of my favorite places to dine so it was no surprise that they again went above and beyond with both food and service. The food is amazing every time, there is always something new on the menu, and the service is always exceptional. Had another great experience this week! Highly recommend!

Another fantastic meal in my great local/neighborhood restaurant. Our party of three had a great time and even though the reservation was for two, we had another join at the last minute and were accommodated effortlessly on a busy evening. That meant a lot. Great meal per usual and nice pre-dinner bar experience among friendly patrons.

C3 continues to impress with its friendly atmosphere, wonderful culinary delights and presentation, as well as hiring competent staff providing attentive service. We happened to be the evening the James Shanahan Trio was performing: we thoroughly enjoyed the music and general festive ambiance.

We were seated in an area where we could both see the band and partake in quiet conversation, a wonderful idea on the part of Allison, the General Manager. We truly had a very nice evening, thank you all so much!


This neighborhood gem of a restaurant is located in Bloomington, Indiana.

Good restaurant in the Renwick neighborhood, bringing some much-appreciated nightlife to this relatively recent residential area. For the two of us, the shared Yang-Yang Beef starter was excellent: crispy, sweet and spicy; the chef's trout was excellent, the chef's pork copious; the 'apple crisp' dessert was a bit of a downer, though, as it seems to have been reheated in a microwave, which took any crisp out of it. Overall a nice restaurant, and I would recommend it to friends.

Started off with my favorite Caesar salad; she had the wontons as her entree, while I had the fish special. All were expertly prepared, and Kat provided attentive service as always! We are so fortunate to have this lovely neighborhood gem in Bloomington! Allison and the crew are THE BEST! Merry Christmas to all—looking forward to seeing you next year!
