Purveyors of fine champagne, charcuterie, cheesecake, and other consciously-curated goods -- all of which start with the letter 'C'.

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.
#AllAboutTheC

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)

Charming setting. Cute concept all offerings contain a C. Sat outside on a nice night. Charcuterie and cheese plate was excellent- spicy berry mustard yum!
Had a craft cocktail and wine.
Unfortunately service left a lot to be desired. My server left me unattended for long periods of time with an empty glass. Bartender finally came out from behind to check on me after quite a while waiting to order something additional.
Would definitely return and hope that the service experience is a little better next time

The C House gets a strong A! Great service, yummy food and well-crafted cocktails. Buffalo cauliflower bites are a great starter for hot food aficionados.

We were there to celebrate our anniversary and although our table was ready at the time of our reservation, the hostess made it right by offering dessert on the house. Our waitress Ana was awesome and we appreciate her spunky and attentiveness service.

Asked for a table inside but they could not accommodate. The bees were overwhelming outside that we had to leave earlier than anticipated. :( The food was great but disappointed at accommodations.

Made a reservation for 9:00pm on Open table for inside seating. Got there and there was nothing available. Didn’t see the point in requesting seating inside if the restaurant wasn’t going to honor it. Seated our party right in front of the entertainment. It was so loud, that we couldn’t hear ourselves talk. Hostess never made any attempt to seat us inside, even though people coming in after us got seated inside. Not good service.

It was our first time at C House so we did not know what to expect. The atmosphere was great and the food was terrific for the most part, the exception being the buffalo cauliflower. We had the cheese and charcuterie boards. Both beautiful and bountiful displays. They make their own sweet pickles which was a really nice touch. The burger was flavorful and cooked well. The cauliflower, however, was heavily breaded with what tasted like progressive Italian bread crumbs. We were not expecting so much breading and the flavoring really threw off the taste. Plus the two dips had zero flavor making the dish overall disappointing.

The downside was the service which was horrible. There were about 12 people working and no one seemed to know what they were doing. Our water glasses and drinks sat empty and no one bothered to ask if we’d like something else. We were pretty much ignored once we ordered so thankfully the food was as good as it was.

If you are in the area it’s worth checking out if you have some time to spare.

My eggs were over cooked but we didn’t have time to send them back. The waitress wasnt very friendly about it and I overheard her talking to the other employees about it. In general the staff didn’t seem very happy or friendly. Great ambiance, music and location but they definitely need to work on customer service.

Unlike most restaurants that ask you if want to sit inside or outside when booking on OpenTable, when we were seated outside in the heat the hostess said rather rudely that we should have called. Our waiter seemed completely disinterested in our experience. Some of the food was very good, while some was very poor. While I know this restaurant gets good reviews, we must have hit a very off night. I much prefer some of the other options in the area like the Refinery.

The restaurant was cute inside and service was fine. Prices were OK. It’s an interesting and unique concept. I had the chickpea burger it was good and so were the fries. My husband had the burger and fries and it was fine too. Again, nothing special but fine. It’s more than you’d expect for a burger but we’re on a date so it’s OK. Beers were good. Service was on point. Cheese cake was a bit too sweet for me. We had the cheese cake with the berry drizzle. I loved the live music. The singer had a beautiful voice and sang covers of great songs.

I would highly recommend this C house. Food was excellent. Only thing I would recommend is having a button when reserving open table to put button for inside and outside seating. I hadn’t no idea when we reserved that we had to indicate that. Hostess was super nice and was able to get us an inside seat before the next reservation that was 2 hours later then ours.

The food was great, no complaints!

However, we did make reservations well in advance and were seated right next to the speaker for live music. We asked for a different table upon arrival and before being served, both times with no follow up.

It was so loud we were unable to carry on a conversation with eachother( the point of going to dinner) and our server was probably great, but we had to shout our orders a few times to even hear what we wanted.

Cute place, yummy food! Recommend sitting inside or the opposite side of the bar.

Great food, great experience. I do wish that when making reservations that you would have the option for inside seating (though I might have missed that checkbox?) Fans worked great outside.

Been here a few times for events and the owner is very nice. I love the buffalo cauliflower. I wouldn't recommend anything with eggs for the brunch menu as the poached eggs were way undercooked the first time then way over the second and another entree we had with eggs also had an over cooking issue. The Charleston was a great brunch dish though. Bloody Mary's are good but I feel overpriced. The staff is very friendly, but the timing of the food delivery needs help and there were large gaps between different entrees being delivered to the table for the different guests.

Wonderful experience. Friendly staff. Delicious food. Rustic decor was perfect fit for the space. Pricing was average. Loved the option of the indoor and outdoor bar areas. I went for brunch but could tell it would be a fun night time atmosphere too. Live music was a plus!

We've loved this place ever since we discovered it, but my absolute favorite menu item is the charcuterie board. My husband and I came for a quick date night and indulged in some drinks, cheeses, meats, and accompaniments. I can't remember our server's name but she was super sweet, friendly, and attentive. Always looking forward to our next visit!

Had been wanting to try this place for a while, underwhelming. Only seats available by reservation was outside, very warm 100 plus with fans. All food starts with a C, cauliflower so spicy not edible, crab cakes cold and underdone.

The C house is good for drinks and appetizers not dinner. This was not my first time there and have not have luck with main courses. They are either barely warm, not cooked enough or they send the wrong dish. Cocktails are ok. Their cheese boards are excellent along with cheesecakes.
