“Great dinner, good service, local food”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

We recently had a delicious meal at C & O Restaurant -- a bit funky, just off the downtown mall, tiny little downstairs restroom, which is odd, but don't be thrown off by the "hole in the wall" appearance -- the food is excellent, get the grilled trout and ask for it without the sauces -- it is fantastic just grilled. Wonderful fresh local vegetable, nice atmosphere indoors or seating outside. Great choice for dinner!

“Consistent Perfection”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

C & O Restaurant was our first choice for restaurant week. The food is always wonderful. And this week's special menu includes dessert. The service was outstanding. First we sat inside, then decided we wanted to sit outside. After a couple of sprinkles we returned to a different table inside again. The staff acting as if this was just the way we should behave.

“Interesting Food”
Reviewed 13 July 2014 via mobile

Nice ambience especially the courtyard behind on a cool day. Food is above average but some what pricey. Nice place for a romantic dinner or special occasion.

“Excellent place for business”
Reviewed 10 July 2014 via mobile

We brought 35 of our closest friends here for a business presentation. The restaurant is remarkably old, a very antiquated building with plenty of character and personality. There is a huge bar in the basement, a restaurant on the main floor, and a private room at the top of the stairs. The room accommodates about 40–45 folks. The service was extraordinary-stealth like, and the food was exquisite. They had great A/V support with a full-size screen and an indwelling projector. The room was intimate--snug, but very accommodating. We would definitely come back here again.

“Best restaurant in Cville ”
Reviewed 5 July 2014 via mobile

I've lived in Cville off and on for 32 years. C&O has been consistently the best restaurant town over that period -- and it has been consistently great. Always inventive and always authentic.
