Went for lunch during the week so it was not very busy. We started at the bar to wait for our table and the bartender was obviously stressed out. I placed my order with a customization and they talked me out of it only for me to realize later that they had 2 of the same drinks to make and didn’t want to make separate ones to cater to my specific request. Unacceptable. We finally moved to our table and ordered food and another drink. The service was surprisingly slow considering it was not busy at all. The waitress was nice but probably having to tend to multiple things at once so not the most attentive. We finally got our food. The drinks arrived after our main meal which was a ridiculous amount of time later considering we ordered them with our appetizers. I’ve been to C house before in the evenings and have had better experiences. Probably not a great place to go to during the day to grab a quick lunch. Or a quick anything for that matter.

Are on the patio during lunch and unfortunately there were nonstop delivery trucks banging their tailgates and carting in items. At one point some sort of private trash pickup truck pulled up so we were looking at trash while eating. Simply was not a pleasant experience for a $50 lunch. Need to schedule deliveries around peak eating times.

We really enjoyed the restaurant. Great atmosphere and the services was fantastic. Great bar with lots of fun drinks.

I got the Lamb and it was just ok. Needed some seasoning but the quality of the cut was great. The wife got the Burger. It was good not great. Two thin burger patties with mushrooms and didn’t come with lettuce or tomato (strange).

All in all I love the place and we will be back. We will just order something different ;)

I will start by saying our server Jason was incredible! However, for the money, the food was nothing special. The first round it came out ice cold after waiting for 45 minutes... so then we waited another 20 minutes for fresh food to come out. And it was not worth the wait. I had the scallops and my fiancé had the gnocchi. Both were bland and very small portions (like... super small). We were given a free glass of wine for our inconvenience, but for the amount we waited and the end result, I wouldn’t go back any time soon.

Great spot - started with a delicious charcuterie board and a gorgeous bottle of wine. Dinner was delicious - chicken sandwich on a croissant bun (mmm honey on the bottom). Generous portions - had to bring some home. Don’t forget to have a slice of cheesecake! Really enjoyed.

We were a party of 6 that turned into a party of 8 at the last minute on Good Friday and they were great about accommodating us. The service was a little slow on the patio (drinks sat empty for 10 min or so) but it was chilly in the shade and the waiter was great about cranking up one of their propane heaters which made a huge difference.

All in all, the food was great , especially the charcuterie, and I will definitely consider them for another get together in the very near future!

We went for Sunday Brunch. The music was so loud we could not hear the Server or each other. Me moved inside to get away but it was pumped in there too and was so loud. The food and ambiance is great but the music level was a turn off.

This was my first time coming on a Saturday evening. My first two experiences were AMAZING!! My first time was for Sunday brunch, all around great & my second time was on a week night, just as amazing as my first visit. This time when I came on a Saturday evening was still a good quality place, that I would recommend! There were only about 3 things that made my rating go down ever so slightly.. I did notice compared to the other two times I went that my wine glass was not filled half way upon being served, my wine portion looked on the smaller side of 1/3 filled. The bread given with the charcuterie board was less than what was normally provided in previous services, so we ended up asking for 2 refills of bread. & lastly, the server was MIA most of the time, but they were busier than other times I went. Still an overall A+ place to go!! Would HIGHLY recommend.

Everything was great except we were seated directly under a powerful fan and there was an oscillating fan that was intermittently blowing on us as well. On a warm/hot evening, I can understand but this night was cooler and the fans were not needed to be on the highest setting or even on at all. Other than that, everything was great.

Loved Sarah our server so much! She is top notch at customer service. We had
A table outside on a nice evening. Unfortunately next to the one man band who was performing. He was very talented but because of the sound system we had difficulty carrying on conversation. It will not stop me from going there again. We loved it. But will ask to sit somewhere else.
This is a warning to patrons of the C House DO NoT park anywhere near the restaurant across the street. My car was towed within minutes of us sitting down. It is a scam ... setup . So disappointing that people can do get away with it. Luckily we saw them took my car, but had to pay them $225 cash for them not to take to tow lot. Made for an extra expensive night. Btw... there were no signs for no parking in front of where we parked. Restaurant owner and tow company have quite a business going.

All 6 of us had various cocktails, cheese and charcuterie, the Buffalo cauliflower (you cannot skip it!), and various entrees - nobody had a complaint. One of Tampa’s best restaurants for sure!

The food is fantastic but the service was not. We could tell the servers were frustrated with the kitchen, as we all received our dinner at different times. Our cocktails arrived 20 minutes after we place the order. This was our second visit, because the food and ambience is great, but the service is poor. Probably won’t return ☹️

We haven't been out in a while, due to covid, so we decided to give this place a try. I'll start with something good....If you want a spot for happy hour, then this is it. Great entertainment, drinks and service. Brogan, our waiter, was awesome! Fast and very accommodating. The food however, was underwhelming... the chef's burger was good as long as you took off the thick, dry, mac & cheese pattie. I thought the mac & cheese would be creamy. For an appetizer we ordered the crab cakes, so much breading. My husband orderded the Chicken Euphoria, and there was nothing euphoric about it. No flavor, but at least it wasn't dry and the fries were good. Soooo, as a last ditch effort I ordered a vanilla cup cake. Well...this was cloyingly sweet and no flavor. I'll be back for happy hour but not the food.

Great vibe, food innovative and tasty, prices were very reasonably priced and fresh. Sarah was an amazing server and every detail was taken care of. Couple of things they can improve on: please don't nickle and dime your customers for an extra charge for 4 slices of bread and 50 cents for extra sauce. Come on guys and gals....really! Also as a trade member a little hospitality from the manager would have been pleasantly accepted. Lack of customer service skills showed on her part which was disappointing. Overall I would love to try it again because the food is really tasty.

Love outdoor seating arrangements but EXTREMELY noisy. Horrible for conversation. Food choices awesome. Will still go back to see whether noise is as bad as my last visit. Not sure what they could do to remediate the noise level.
