The C House
Housed in a former transmission repair shop in Seminole Heights, The C House showcases consciously-crafted food, beverage, and housewares that each start with the letter C. We believe that conversation shared among friends (and soon-to-be-friends) over a cocktail or a glass of California Cabernet is the jewel of life, that the words ‘community’ and ‘pride’ ought to go hand-in-hand, and that everything in life is better with live music.
Please note: Reservations booked guarantee your party a table. We do our best to honor specific location requests (i.e. inside or outside), although party size and reservation time may dictate otherwise. (Thanks for understanding)
It was amazing and my new favorite restaurant.
Excellent food. Fun concept.
My wife and I had dinner at the C House for the first time this last week. We loved it. The food was good, the service great, and the ambiance and live music was wonderful. This is a great place for a date night and a great value.
Went to The C House this week for a birthday dinner. It was a Wednesday and not busy at all. Our table agreed it the worst waiter we've ever had. After being seated and given water, she said she'd give us a few minutes to review the cocktail menu. After 20 minutes with no sign of her, I went to the bar and asked him to please send someone over. My brother in law had to go get extra silverware and napkins off an empty table because she kept forgetting to bring what we asked for. We were there for almost 40 minutes before she took our dinner order. Never came back to see if we wanted more drinks (which we definitely would have ordered). Had to ask the bartender for more water. After the bartender had to prompt her once to come back to our table, I really expected her to be more attentive, but no. The entire night was a struggle and she missed out on selling more drinks and food because she couldn't be bothered to check in. The food was very good as were the cocktails. The service was just so bad that it actually became a joke at our table about whether anyone would ever top this terrible service. Our guess is no.
Food was exceptional and service spot on. A new favorite!
First, our server Kirsten was great! EXTREMELY knowledgeable about the menu and options and was VERY responsive to our questions.
The food was served fairly quickly. My wife had a hair in her plate and they quickly fixed it!
The portion sizes were good and everyone enjoyed what they ordered. We all had a “sample” idea. We had the veggie burger, wings, Mac and Cheese, Harvest salad, crab cakes, lamb pops and steak. The salted caramel cheesecake was amazing!
When we left, I noticed something. Several of the wait staff was on the patio setting table settings for what I assume to be the next day (wrapping the forks and knives in the towels.)
What was disappointing to see was that several of them went to pet a dog (a visiting friend that was there) and immediately went back to folding the cloth Napkins and Forks/Knives.
I brought it to the attention of my server and the Manager on Duty. They agreed with my sentiment. Unfortunately, nothing was done to change what was happening. We stood outside for about 20 minutes and watched the staff continue to make the table settings and even in a sense look at our party as if we were weird for saying something.
I think we need to acknowledge that pets are pets and we should wash our hands before we engage in eating utensils. Secondly, I think we have to acknowledge that not everyone is a “dog lover”. Finally, another member of our party pointed out that there was another dog under the table in which they were preparing the table settings.
This part of the night left a bad taste in otherwise good experience.
Everything was great but I would have preferred my breakfast potatoes to be a little more crispy.
Great menu and great food! Highly recommend. Great for large groups as lots of things on the menu can be shared. Large portions.
Service was so/ so...
server did not clear plates fast enough and missed a dish on our order
Great food, service and ambiance!!
Awesome dinner! Love the decor and the atmosphere. Food and drinks are awesome.
Last night before our Daughter went back to college. Had to bring the vegetarian there for the buffalo cauliflower!
I loved everything about it, from the atmosphere to the food!! Everything was GREAT
Brooke was a lovely server- she chose our charcuterie board for us and made a rare night out extra enjoyable with her knowledge and helpfulness.
Love this place. It's one of my go to's!
Food, drink and happy hour are great. Dress it up inside or just chill by the music out. You can't go wrong
The C House is a great place to meet friends for a cocktail and a cheese & charcuterie plate, maybe even some appetizers. The outdoor seating area feels spacious, and the live music is a nice touch. The server was super friendly and attentive. Food service was extremely slow, however. Because of this, we expected an incredible entree. Unfortunately, the entrees were average at best. I want to reiterate that our server was wonderful! She just couldn't overcome the shortcomings in the kitchen.
The standout items, to me, were the cheese & charcuterie plate (amazing!) and the cocktails (delish!). Totally worth it to come here just for those items. Just be sure you aren't in a hurry.
I want to thank our waitress on December 31st. I didn't get her name, but we were sitting outside and the women in our party had too much to drink and fell down. We had to make a quick exit and our waitress was so gracious and helpful. She cancelled the rest of the order and got us out quickly. I was impressed.
Love the live music. The food is well
Prepared and the service is great!
Great staff and food
Great ambiance. Cool, tasty food. Service was a tad slow but I’d go again.
Too expensive for what you get.
Service and food are always outstanding. This is one of our favorite places eat and enjoy a crafted cocktail,
The C House has a decent variety menu. The Buffalo Cauliflower is outstanding and a must try for those who like spicy food. You get a large portion with it for at least 4 people. Ordered a meat and cheese board and the Poutine. Both were outstanding. Their desserts are very good too! Service was wonderful!
Food excellent, although main dish was slow in coming out.
We enjoyed our brunch so much and the atmosphere was so relaxing!!! We will definitely go again. Great service too !!!
Everyone in our party enjoyed our visit to the C House. Everything was extremely delicious from the cheese and meat trays to the entrees. For dessert, the cheesecake selections were exceptional. Jason, our server was very knowledgeable regarding the menu. He was very attentive. We could not have asked for anyone better. I would suggest asking for Jason as you will be impressed with his expertise and professionalism. We sat outside and enjoyed the surroundings. Jason arranged to place one of the numerous heaters near our table as we had two ladies in our party who were very appreciative. Everyone in our party plans a return visit.
Our server Kirsten was outstanding and very accommodating!
What a find! Beautiful inside and out. Delicious food (and lots of it!), great drinks. I highly recommend The C House and can’t wait to go back!
Amazing!! Highly recommend. All around great place.
Everything was incredible from the cocktails to the service
I loved everything about this place and can't wait to go back. We're about 3 hours away, but would definitely travel the distance for the amazing food, drinks, and cheesecake!
Awesome! The Egg white omelette was the best I’ve ever had! My friends and I went for a Sunday brunch and ended up staying almost 4 hours drinking they’re delicious champagne! The service was great, the atmosphere was great, and the music was awesome also
Fun night with friends.
Love this place! Fantastic food, coupled with great outdoor ambiance and service. Can’t find many restaurants with live music that doesn’t overwhelm dinner conversations. This place has it all - highly recommend the buffalo cauliflower as the best appetizer in all of Tampa!
Everyone and everything was outstanding. Our server Anna was her usual self and explained the specials with great detail. Our dinner was beyond outstanding and the cheesecake and cupcakes were to die for! We couldn’t ask for a better Saturday night!
Danna does an outstanding job and I cannot recommend enough
Love this place. Great atmosphere and creative menu. My only dislike is the parking. Not enough spots and no alternative except in neighborhood which is pretty packed too.
Enjoyed brunch with cocktails. Acoustic guitarist in the patio area. Service, food,drinks exceeded expectations. We will definitely be back.
The C House remains my favorite restaurant in Tampa! The staff, the ambiance, and the cuisine are superb!
