“Go for the wine, not the food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2007

The wine list is excellent the location and setting, great. I ordered the Cuban Steak. It was good, but nothing special for the price. You could get a better steak at OutBack Steakhouse and cheaper. C&O is a good unique place for wine and appetizers, but go somewhere else for dinner.

“Great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2007

My husband and I ate at C&O in Charlottesville in March 2007. We had a wonderful dining experience and would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who is visiting the Charlottesville area. We sat in the downstairs bar area, which is the smoking section, but the surroundings are so cool, we decided to sit there anyway. There are plenty of non-smoking sections to sit in, so that's not a major problem here. The owner gave us a tour of the place which has quite a bit of history - you could almost feel the "ghosts" watching you as you ate. My husband got the rabbit streudel and I got the vegetarian selection. Both meals were wonderful and the service was good too. We ordered a White Burgundy to go with our meal, but they were out of the one that we ordered. The sommelier suggested another White Burgundy which was more expensive, but the restaurant gave us the same price as the orginal bottle that we ordered that they did not have that evening. All of the staff were very helpful and friendly and the surroundings were romantic and cozy. Overall, I would say this is a great place to dine while in Charlottesville. We will go back!
