C & O Restaurant
From the beginning the C&O has enjoyed the high praise of some of the nations most notable food writers and critics. The C&O staff is peppered with enthusiastic crafts people who are passionate about their work. The kitchen crew works tirelessly cultivating relationships with local farmers, cheese makers, vintners and ranchers bringing you the best of whatac2s around. The wait staff is knowledgeable, attentive but unobtrusive with a keen eye towards warmth and hospitality. The C&O is a multifaceted restaurant with six different areas for dining. (Not all of the spaces lend themselves to reservations, some tables are held for our walk in customers)
This used to be one of my favorite restaurants in Charlottesville. Excellent food, excellent service, and an outstanding wine list. It was at the top of my list of places to take someone I wanted to impress.
Unfortunately things have gone way downhill. My last two meals here have been sub-par. It s on my no go list now. How very, very sad for this Charlottesville landmark.
We recently visited Charlottesville, VA. and had dinner at the C&O. Our meal was everything I expected and more.
The dining room upstairs is bright and cozy. Our appetizers were woderful only to be followed by a wonderful main course. I had the veal cheeks and my husband the rabbit sausages.
The services was nearly perfect. You will not be disappointed.
Very, very disappointing. I took my wife to C&O for our anniversary on a Monday night. We were seated in a small, oddly-arranged room at a small table about 2 feet from another couple; when we left, several chairs blocked our exit. Food was adequate but nothing special – and it was over-priced. One of our bread plates had a small, still-alive bug on it. Service was spotty. Restroom was down a narrow flight of stairs and very, very dirty (it was under the stairs and about the size of a janitor’s closet, with toilet paper and cleaning supplies on display). Dinner for two -- including two glasses of wine and dessert -- was about $100 (not including tip).
The food at the C&O is uninspired, the service greatly lacking, the ambiance lacking, details (both big and small) greatly overlooked. Overall, our experience at this restaurant was dismal and encourage you to look elsewhere for your dining experience. The details of our experience include being sat directly under the A/C despite have made reservations, requests for it to be turned down were ignored. One entree was served to the table cold and when sent back the meat was simply zapped in the microwave and no apologies from the kitchen or wait staff. The wait staff at our table knew nothing of the wine list and kept having to run off elsewhere to obtain answers to basic questions. Wine was served about 10 degrees too cold, diminishing the flavour and quality of the wine - clearly do not know wine's. Not worth the money.
I've been to C&O twice, the first time was dinner for two. The second time was dinner for about 20. The first time, service was marginal. The second time, service was awful. Both times, the food was pretty good. Beware, it's awfully cramped and dark in there, but that's part of the restaurant's charm, apparently.
From the time we walked in the door, until the moment we left, C & O was what we believe a restaurant should be. The service was exceptional, attentive, but not overbearing. The meal was one of the very best we have had since moving to Charlottesville four years ago. The ambiance was relaxed and sophisticated, but not stuffy. Definitely a place we will return again and again.
