Horrible service. Entire wait staff was extremely non-attentive. Food was cold, but good.
It was great
It was amazing. Everything was amazing, especially the food.
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.
Beautiful setting for delicious food. Shrimp bisque was wonderful and the grouper was perfect. From CD personalized tableware to the efficiency and kindness of the staff. Can't wait to go back!
Drinks were expensive. Entertaining a client so I didn’t mind but wouldn’t come there on a regular basis if I lived there.
Food and service were great. However, we were disappointed when we were seated in the bar area. The restaurant should distinguish bar seating and dining room seating when you make a reservation on opentable
Cafe Dupont was much more expensive than I was expecting. With how expensive it was, the portions were quite small, and to be honest, I could probably make a better meal at my own house. I wouldn't recommend it unless you're going there for a high-end date where you expect that type of meal.
This was our first dinner in town and it was fantastic. We had minor critiques on the techniques and presentation used with the food, but we truly enjoyed everything! Nothing lacked flavor and the meals were well balanced.
This was our first visit back to Cafe Dupont in a couple of years. I previously dined there every couple of weeks when I worked downtown. I have always liked this restaurant with its innovative food, excellent service and good very wine list.
It remains largely the same. Our food was excellent, and I was able to get my salmon cook medium-well which is difficult in a lot of higher-end restaurants. My wife had the fried chicken which is about as good an interpretation of that dish that we have found. The drinks and deserts were fantastic.
They only offered one salad, a beet salad, that I am sure was delicious but not what we wanted that evening. It would have been fine if I could have ordered a small cafe or mixed green salad a la carte or off the menu but alas it was unavailable.
IMHO, every restaurant should offer at least one salad that is primarily based of greens. If Cafe Dupont wants me to give it a five-star rating it need to fix this issue. The wine list is not as extensive as it used to be but is very competitive with other area restaurants and is supplemented with nice offering of specialty cocktails as well as a full bar.
With that said, I would gladly return to the establishment again.

My husband and I had our first visit to the restaurant and we enjoyed it thoroughly. The food was delicious and the service was great.
On again a fantastic evening. Everything was perfect. From cocktails to dessert.
Food was fantastic. Service was attentive but not pushy. I have never before had a waiter recommend a different wine by bringinn me a taste of what I ordered and what he recommended, unrequested. Maybe someone would be offended but I was happy to take his suggesting ofter the tasting.
Enjoyed celebrating 49th wedding anniversary. Food great and best wait staff!
WONDERFUL place to eat! Staff and food way above excellent!!!
Very disappointed in the quality of the food - ribeye steak was too thinly cut. Overall meal was fully priced for the quality and quantity of food.
The food was ok. I was very loud in the small room. I thought since I was in a coat and tie and my wife in a nice dress it would of been a better experience. There were a few men in short sleeves no coat. I could have dressed in jeans and gone to a steak place and spent a lot less money!
Service was great and the food was unique. A little pricey and possible overpriced for the portion sizes. Overall worth the try, especially for a special occasion.
Great meal and great service!
$38 ribeye was a half inch thick $4 Waffle House steak. Service was great.
Service very poor ;our waitress ignored us for most part; her backups however were great
Has become a top spot for special occasions for me and my family.
We chose the 5 course tasting menu. Thus involves either choosing 2 appetizers and 3 entrees or letting the chef decide. We opted to make our own selections. None of the dishes disappoint. Nick took great care of us, describing each dish in detail as he brought them to us. He topped off the evening with complimentary beignets and cocktail for my companion.
Great service, went for my birthday and the service is great.
Large party and we were well accommodated
Great all around, Duck Confit was the best thing I have ever had at Cafe DuPont. They also gave my wife benigets for her birthday.
Our dining experience was wonderful and romantic. We came to Cafe Dupont to celebrate our first anniversary, and it was the perfect choice. Our favorite part of our meal was our starter (the baked brie with caramelized onions, poached pears and lemon curd). The only underwhelming part of our meal was dessert. It simply didn't match the standard that the rest of the meal set.
Our waiters were all very professional and were able to make recommendations to us when asked. They were especially helpful when one of our drinks spilled on the table (our fault) and did not make us feel embarrassed.
Overall, a wonderful special occasion!
I would recommend this restaurant to anyone with a love of food. We truly enjoyed every bite and the ambiance and service were exceptional.
Excellent food and service
Still the best restaurant in a city with a growing reputation for food. The whole experience was first-rate from start to finish.
We came to cafe DuPont for our anniversary. We were served complimentary fried green tomatoes and chowder for our anniversary. Our waitress (Trina?) took excellent care of us. We had the scallops and salmon and both were delicious. We will definitely be back. It was quiet and cozy at 5:30pm. And our Manhattans and Old Fashions were awesome! A great evening
This is the best fine dining in Birmingham. It seems to be getting better over time.
Fantastic food. We had a large group and our service was great. A great holiday meal with friends!
Foie gras and oysters were excellent, but the overall experience did not rise to the usual level of excellence for the price.
Server told us kitchen was slow and that desert was in them, we ordered two expecting one to be comped due to service and were charged for both. Dinner took almost 2 hrs and I was only served two drinks, had to ask bust boy for a refill and it took a while to get word to our server who wasn’t in the dining room very much.
Lot of staff hanging around talking to each other while guest waited on service.
Food was as good as expected but service and length of time was a downer.
Some of the best food and service I have had at a restaurant in a long time.
I love Cafe Dupont. Friday was my first time to try the ribeye. The steak was so tender I could easily cut it with my fork. It was the most delicious ribeye I’ve ever eaten. Most of my favorite restaurants nail food and service, but is so loud I can’t hear my waiter or date. Cafe Dupont has great food, great service and you can hear the person you are dining with. This is important to me. I would and do recommend Cafe Dupont.
Enjoyable experience with good food.
