CWC is the restaurant realization of the Cincinnati-based Cooking with Caitlin brand. Smack dab in the center of Wyoming, OH, it’s a love note to the community where we, Caitlin, Kelly, and Karen, have rooted our families and grown our business.

Come hungry for familiar ingredients twisted inventively into extra special comfort food as only Chefs Caitlin + Brian know how to twist them. Our Baby Biscuits and Char Cheddar Burgers are signature staples; the rest changes seasonally. And in our small, scratch kitchen, *we sometimes run out of items*.

CWC is an ongoing opportunity for us to serve and celebrate our neighbors, friends, and fans in the intimate way we do our own families, at our own kitchen counter. We take personally your experience and are grateful for the opportunity to break bread with you.

NOTE: "Counter" seats are right in front of the chefs in our completely open kitchen.

The only reason I gave it a 4 star and not 5 was for the 45 minute wait to sit when we had reservations! But Kelly killed it and helped out taking care of us and was soooo funny! Food was fabulous!

We sat at the counter which was fun to watch the small kitchen in action. The group of 4 of us split the fried brussels (amazing) and biscuits to start. Both were on point. For meals, we ordered a kids burger (cheese on side), fish taco, short rib, and sweet potato fries (I wasn't very hungry and knew I'd get half of that kids burger). Everything was delicious and the combinations on the plates all worked so well. Oranges in the fish taco? Delicious. Root vegetable tarte tatin under the short rib? Amazing. Poached egg and curry sauce with the sweet potato fries? Yum. Would def go back!

Wonderful little neighborhood place we love to go, and now that they take reservations we'll be going even more often. Went for Valentine's day and it was great. We started with the fried Brussels Sprouts with roasted garlic aioli - out of this world delicious. Could have made a meal of just those. I had the mole chicken, and my husband had the Char Cheddar Burger with fries which were fresh cut. The chicken was a leg quarter with a wonderful crispy skin and very flavorful and my husband said his burger was very good and cooked to his liking. Love that they vary the menu and source locally when they can.

The 1st impression coming through the door of the unique smell of cooked brussel sprouts may catch you off guard so it's best to be warned. The food, service and neighborhood jewel dining ambiance is well worth sticking in there and we look forward to going back often.

Service and owners are a delight. Food and drink delicious. Beautiful and intimate inside.

Definitely will return. Zero complaints except slow food delivery. We had 2 rounds of drinks, 3 sharables and desserts...in less than an hour. And it was Valentine's evening.

Oh. And maybe real coffee?

My husband and I absolutely LOVE CWC! We love to come here on a date night, casual dinner, when our friends are in town.... any excuse we can come up with to come to this place, we do it! The changing menu is always awesome and I try something new every time I come. My husband loves the char cheddar burger! We can't wait for the next menu to come out!

I loved my short rib...YUM and a beautiful presentation. My husband got the fish taco and while it was filling, it was kinda boring; large piece of fried fish, slaw on a tortilla. Not much flavor he said. Cozy Personable Friendly Efficient. Yummy We will be back
