“Charming decor, savory food and outstanding service!”
Reviewed August 29, 2014

We just stopped in for appetizers and drinks while giving our friend a foodie tour of the downtown mall and were delighted but what we found. This was our first time here and the décor was so rustic and unique- very inviting! The bartender recommended a couple dishes all were wonderful- our first time trying sweet breads and we are hooked! I wanted a refreshing non alcoholic drink and they offer fresh squeezed juice, mixed with a little seltzer and I was very happy! (all places in Charlottesville offer great beer and liquor options but not many offer nice options for those of us who prefer to drive home sober) The boys enjoyed a nice selection of beers too! We cannot wait to go back again. Just cannot say enough about the atmosphere here- truly a historic gem of Charlottesville!

“Very good”
Reviewed August 24, 2014 via mobile

The atmosphere is cozy (even if I would prefer a little bit more light).
The service was excellent (the waitress was able to clear the table in the proper manner, without putting anything under her arms or doing any other odd thing I have seen in American restaurants).
The food was top quality. We had the snapper, the trout and the creme brulee and everything was well cooked and really good.

“Traditional and Contemporary ”
Reviewed August 24, 2014 via mobile

We had dinner at this Cville standard right before school started. The sign has a Pepsi logo - but don't be fooled, this is a long standing tradition. The interior is well designed, the service professional and the food high quality. A very nice experience.

“Birthday dinner with my son!”
Reviewed August 1, 2014 via mobile

My son is a Dr. At UVA and he wanted to take me to a special birthday dinner and C and O fit the ticket!! I love history and the quaint old building is amazing ... We dined in the outdoor courtyard . They have seasonal items and the food was delicious! Service impeccable!
