Open kitchen revealed less than sanitary methods being used by cook staff. Eating their meal while cooking. Picking up food with involved hands. (To plate).
Wonderful food and lovely ambiance
Great food,great service. We spent a lovely evening celebrating our friend’s birthday. Thank you Cafe 1912 for a memorable evening.
The restaurant was not busy at all, yet our server was slow. We sat next to the kitchen and other staff persons were sitting/standing just 2 tables away and talking loudly with each other and with the kitchen staff without regard for us.
Sara waited on us and was great as always
Thought it was overpriced .
First time here, everything was excellent.
I had wanted to bring my wife to Cafe 1912 for a while and last Saturday, we finally got the chance. When we came in and were seated, we were initially hit with the fact that the place is flat out loud... almost too loud, but we decided to stay. We got our menus and were more than a little disappointed that the menus on their website and Opentable were out of date; dishes we wanted to have were not offered and given our need for Gluten Free options, we found there weren't that many options, but again, we found a few things and continued on. We decided on a couple of cocktails, the mussels and the Salmon Tapenade and the Lamb Shank. We were a little taken aback how the server literally dropped the plate of mussels at our table which is part of the reason for the service rating, but I'm happy to say that's the end of the negative stuff. First of all, the mussels were amazing and while we both enjoyed the Lamb and the Salmon, the salmon was the dish that we will definitely come back to enjoy. Thankfully, my wife shared or I would really have food envy, but if you like Salmon, go to Cafe 1912, order the Salmon Tapenade and maybe bring some ear plugs. It's definitely worth it!
We are lucky to have this amazing bistro in our neighborhood! A gem!
Nice dinner with friends! Great truffle pomme frites! Pork medallions were very good. Chicken fish and veal were good but not great. Mushroom risotto was perfectly cooked. Profiteroles were perfect size for sharing. Noise level was perfect - pleasantly surprised that we were able to have a conversation at our table of four in a crowded restaurant.
Great service good food
We always enjoy 1912.
It is nice to go to a restaurant and they greet you with Welcome Back.
Unprepossessing hole in the wall appearance - wonderfully surprised by the food. Dinner was great, dessert was so-so. A little loud.

What else is there to say!
Outstanding! Having owned a fine dining establishment, I can say that everything about Cafe 1912 is near perfect. Not being a big fish person; the salmon was without question the best I have ever enjoyed.
Great place for a first date (I should know :)
We always know we'll get a great meal here. That's why we keep coming back
Cafe 1912 always delivers the BEST dining experience. The food is truly amazing, the cocktails are refreshing and the service is beyond compare! If you're after an all-around delightful evening, then get yourself to Cafe 1912!
The food is always great. And the service is always above and beyond.
One of my favorite places!!! Also good
Food is always great and the menu has a perfect mix to choose from!
Seafood crepe is always a winner as well as the mussels. Too bad my date wasn’t as good as the food ;) — however the service made up for him.
We went for their Bastille Day menu, and the food was absolutely top notch. I can't wait to return again for another fabulous meal. The service was attentive but not pushy, and we never lacked for anything. Definitely go if you're looking for a great evening out!
The food at Cafe 1912 is excellent value for money. The wait staff are pleasant and many have worked there for years, which I always take as a good sign that it is a good place to work. The mood/ambience is very nice. Small tables tucked in there and there.
Food was awesome. Staff was friendly and attentive. Highly recommend, I had the veal piccata which was mind blowing good. And spouse had chicken pasta, he said it was outstanding. And you cannot go wrong with the bread pudding for dessert
Time and time again my wife and I have a fantastic dining experience at Cafe 1912. It is one of our favorite restaurants and I am sure we will be back many times.
This is our go-to place for wonderful food, friendly attentive service, and nice atmosphere. It's quaint, not loud and a great place for a date!
Casual and comfortable. Sarah was our sever and she was excellent. Service and food were top notch. Will definitely put it on the top of our list for date nights!
This was our second trip to Café 1912 and we love it. The food is excellent and a very good value. Good quality for the money. From the appetizers all the way through desserts you can’t miss! We will be back for sure!
Our food was nice. Sarah, our server was amazing!
Consistently delicious! Great bartender and always delicious meals
The lamb shank fell off the bone. I just picked up the bone and was left with a saucy pile of delicious meat. My mom loved the half chicken and said the accompanying asparagus was cooked perfectly.
The waitress was very prompt and kept the meal rolling. She was professional, in that she wasn't there when we didn't need her. The experience made for a very good Mother's Day.
Delightful evening - tasty food, in a chic atmosphere. Proximity to Playhouse Square makes this an excellent dining venue.
The male wAiter was kind of slow but food was great!!
This place is our favorite hidden gem in Memphis! Incredible food, drinks and service/staff!
Excellent food and service. Noise level is a problem. It is very difficult to carry on a conversation.
Great service, enjoyed the food! Will return!
Good service, wonderful salads, and delicious ravioli! Truffle fries are a must.
Always enjoy the food and atmosphere. Will keep going back
Always great! Tyler is wonderful at the bar!
