Food was awful. Had duck ap and snapper course. Bread pudding undercooked and mushy, but was on track in taste. Service decent. 25 years of travel and eating out. Try to be fair to all restaurant food and experience. I have been sick since I left 5 hours ago and going! I've never made a review before today. But feel... More

Our first visit to Cafe DuPont. Ashley and Natalie made us feel welcome. Alex our server was great. Food outstanding and I judge a restaurant by the dessert. I ate 2 of the cranberry Bread Pudding very yummmy. Can't wait to go back. Cafe DuPont is a can't miss.

Back in the middle 90's my wife and I had the pleasure of driving out to Springville to try out a new restaurant. It was named Cafe DuPont and was highly recommended by friends. We throughly enjoyed the food and the experience. Today, twenty years removed from moving away from Birmingham, our son and daughter-in-law took us out to lunch.... More

Wonderful experience! Really nice atmosphere - plenty of energy but still quiet enough for conversation. The food prep and presentation were perfect. One of our group had dietary restrictions and they were happy to offer alternatives to menu items.

Good food and great service. Valet was fast and courteous. The only negative was the ladies room did not lock--had a note that said "knock before entering".

My husband has always wanted to go here so we came for our birthdays in Dec. We had first class treatment. We havent found a place like this for years. The food was good but not the norm. The chef has creative taste and they came out in each part of the meal we tried. We even had dessert and... More

It was our first time there, and our waitress, Trina, made us feel like we had nothing to be ashamed of having not known anything about the menu or the restaurant. She told us about how she just started serving, so that made us feel more comfortable, because we were technically in the same boat. She went through the menu,... More

Cafe Dupont is a unique gem of a restaurant in downtown Birmingham. The ambiance is terrific, and the food outstanding. The scallops at lunch are quite possibly the best I've ever had. Chef Dupont is a master at bringing out and complementing the flavors in the food he serves. It is well worth the hefty price charged for lunch.

My husband and I enjoyed dinner at Cafe Dupont on a Saturday night. The server was not as attentive as you would expect in a fine dining restaurant but we loved our meal. The fried green tomatoes appetizer was good but the parmesan flan was not as flavorful. I would highly recommend the grilled Gulf red snapper and the veal... More

Fantastic. This restaurant had amazing food and ambience. I highly recommend the fried green tomatoes and the foie gras appetizer. Heaven. The wine list was wonderful, as was the beer selection. Do not miss out on this restaurant.
