Decided to go to Cafe DuPont for our first anniversary as it is consistently great! On the app I put that it was our anniversary and there was not a mention of it the entire night. The food was good as always but nothing stood out. All in all my expectations may have been too high, generally speaking they are always surpassed.

We dined early, so the restaurant was quiet. Every item we had was first-rate. Every other steak in the world was eclipsed by the tenderloin I had: perfect temperature, great crust, delicious marbling.

We had Elizabeth for our principal waiter, and I cannot speak too highly of her abilities. Even when she got busy later, she never missed anything at our table.

Last night was our second experience with Cafe DuPont & they didn't disappoint. We were celebrating our 5th wedding anniversary and they made a point of bringing champagne to our table to toast. The food was delicious, well-prepared and unique.

The food here is amazing. The fried shrimp & okra even better than the prior version with catfish. The beet salad was the most beautiful and tasty deconstructed salad I’ve ever seen, and I’m not a big fan of beets. The custom pottery dinner ware perfectly highlights the dishes. The newer built out space designed to look aged is impressive. One minor criticism: The glassware & stemware is understated and too small in my opinion, especially the martini and white wine stemware. The Oneida flatware is pretty in design but too light in the hand. The food here is among the best in Bham without question, consistently.

The food was outstanding. For appetizers the charcuterie plate was different than I’ve ever had with pork belly, duck, and other meats, and the fried shrimp and okra were excellent. For entrees, I had the rabbit two ways and my wife had the filet. Both were delicious and we didn’t leave anything on the plates. For dessert, I had the berry cobbler with buttermilk ice cream and my wife had the beignets. We’re looking forward to the next time we can get back to Cafe Dupont!

Excellent experience. Delectable fare, lovely space, delightful service from bartender Maria. The amuse bouche and the sorbet palate cleanser between courses was a pleasant surprise. This is a star on the impressive Bham food scene.

My family celebrated what would have been my parents 50th wedding anniversary. The chef and staff accommodated our wishes for a tasting menu. It was amazing! Service was superb. We had the cheese plate and charcuterie board which were both delicious. Our tastings consisted of one appetizer and four entrees. All delicious! The chicken and pork were probably my favorites. We all shared the beignets for dessert. Delicious end to a wonderful evening! I love this restaurant 👏 Thanks to all the staff who made our honoring a special occasion so perfect.

Cafe Dupont was just amazing. We chose it because of the charcuterie board and it was just amazing. The fois gras was scrumptious, cranberry chutney tasted like Christmas, pork belly was crispy amazing and the rest of it was fabulous. We chose stuffed quail and scallops for our entrees. The scallops were excellent but the quail was the amazing hit. The stuffing was amazing.
Our waiter was attentive and so pleasant. Then we enjoyed the evening art fair after dinner. Wonderful evening and what a great date spot.
