I've been to C&F numerous times. The food is good, but the acoustics are such that the place is very noisy if there are people there. Aside from everyone seeming to be yelling to be heard, there is the awful clatter of cutlery being sorted...in a corner of the dining room. The noisy ambiance is a real drawback to a nice dinner with friends, because you can't hear each other.
It can take a L-O-N-G time to get cocktails here. Not sure if this is because there is usually just one bartender, but I don't see that many cocktails flying off the bar. For this reason, you'd do well to order your drink well before ordering food if you'd like to enjoy a before dinner cocktail.
Also, be careful about ordering. If you want appetizers, order them first and THEN order entrees. Otherwise, it's likely everything will arrive at the same time.
The pizzas are good. So's the octopus small plate, and the pastas. Small plates are just that. Small. Larger entrees are a little pricey. But they DO have interesting food options.
Overall, I like the place, but the noise level can really negatively impact a night out.
They have outdoor seating on the street in nice weather, which can be nice, and quieter.More
