During a one night stop in Birmingham we ate at Cafe DuPont on the recommendation of a friend. It was simply outstanding with a classy interior, wonderful service from Conner, and outstanding food and wines. We will go back next time our travels take us there.

The service was impeccable. The food was delicious. The atmosphere lively but a little too loud for me when the room was full. It wouldn't stop me from recommending Cafe Dupont to a friend though.

Good place for business. Tables are far enough apart and noise level is not too high. I have been there three times and the food has been consistently excellent and the service nicely paced and not intrusive.

We were a party of five and were there almost two and a half painfully long hours. It took our server an eternity to come to our table and take a drink order and then the drinks came 20 minutes later. Some of our food orders came out wrong and due to the length of time it took to get them we ate them. The food was warm at best and the only hot item was the fried chicken breast. The wait once again for our server to get another round of drinks took an eternity again and ordering dessert even longer. We were there two weeks ago and the experience was supurb! Don't know what was going on the 16th but we were not the only customers not happy. We will not be back for a while !

I have been to Cafe Dupont twice and both times it as been amazing. This time was for my husband's birthday. The mixologist was brilliant. We were able to tell him some vague idea about what we like and he made us custom cocktails that were unique, refreshing, and delicious. The food was also fresh and well-crafted. Do not be afraid to try the vegetable plate because it is so far beyond "just some vegetables." Since it was my husband's birthday, the waiter brought some champagne and beignets as a treat.

We had a great meal on a date night. Service was prompt. I can recommend the charcuterie appetizer especially. The room is small so it can be loud if a large table is having a good time.

Everything about the restaurant was wonderful, the only thing that was a problem was the valet serive - it too 15 min to pick up the car after eating.. ( I’m guessing the driver was high) I have no other explanation for how it was problematic to just pick up my car, which made me late for my fundraiser event .. ughh

We were there for valantines day and there was a fix four course menu which we were told ahead of time. We had asked if there were going to be vegetarian options since my wife is a vegetarian and was advised yes but they only vegetarian option was for third course and desert. I wish we had been more clearl about this but someone should have explained to us little more in details when we got the call to confirm the reservation.

All in all we enjoyed our time and would recommend this restaurant.

We were there for Valentines Day dinner. Lighting was nice, but too noisy making conversation or hearing server difficult. I enjoyed my scallops and our other selections but my husband thought his ribeye was only average.
