Impeccable service by Kyjourie and the young lady assisting. Chef extras were delightful: seafood mousse, pear sorbet and chocolate truffles. Portions, taste, temperature and presentation of every dish, from appetizer to dessert, were perfect. We were completely delighted. The bar had a nice selection, the woman tending bar was quite busy but pleasant.

Wonderful service and fine dining food! Everything cooked to perfection and displayed beautifully. Loved the classic etiquette of waiters and placement of silverware as well—so hard to find these days!

we were kept waiting over an hour after our reservation time. people who came after us were seated ahead of us-maybe their reservations were earlier than ours ?

Great food and Staff. Wish it was a bit less noisy. Really hard to hear wait staff and even others in our party at a table of four.

Great food but poor service - both at check in from unfriendly hostess and at dinner from slow waiter who had too many tables. Food was very good but experience waiting for drinks and check was very annoying.

It’s the little extras that made our experience at Cafe DuPont so special. The dark and light bread with herbed butter, the amuse Boucher, the strawberry sorbet paler cleanse and the chocolate ganache bite at the end! What delicious bites between our delicious snapper and mixed vegetable plates! A perfect dinner out downtown before the ballet!

Decided on Cafe DuPont for a special dinner and it did not disappoint in any way. The food was amazing and both my dinner partner and I had a tough time deciding what to order because there were so many good choices. The endive salad was a hit as well as the sea scallops. Highly recommend!

Food was delicious, as always. Server was excellent and cute! But he brought us a few little extras! Food is overpriced but is a very nice dining experience. We ate early and went to play afterwards. Was a nice evening.

Good food! But I’ve had better. Loved the little thoughts between dishes. Service was excellent, in an old historical building if you like that kind of thing.

This was our first experience and our guests had been many times. We loved the atmosphere. It was lively and active but still felt sophisticated. The waitress treated us with so many little extras and our food choices were fantastic. Rarely is everyone in the group thrilled with their choices but this group couldn’t have been more pleased.

If I could rate Cafe DuPont six stars, I definitely would. The ambiance, warm and friendly service, outstanding and creative food made for a great dining experience.
The fried oyster and okra appetizer was amazing. My husband and I both had scallops for our entree and they were perfect. Finished our meal with a bread pudding and it was extraordinary.
Our first visit, but not our last. Highly recommend.

Cafe du Pont was the last inside dining experience we had before the shutdown. The dinner this past Thursday was our first breakout dinner since getting vaccinated. We loved it and Abagail was great!!

My family was visiting Birmingham from South Carolina. The seven of us were thrilled with the quality food and service that we received. We were delighted to find this gem tucked into Downtown. We will definitely return on our next visit.

Probably Birmingham's nicest dining venue. In a historic building downtown with the full experience of table cloths, sorbet between courses, etc. Valet parking included and very good. Not inexpensive but nice once a year for a special occasion.

Best Fine Dining In Birmingham! Fresh ingredients, excellent waitstaff, portions are excellent, signature cocktails are out of this world! You can go to a franchise top steakhouse, pay much more, and never get the satisfaction of attention to detail from this great chef and his team!
