We went to Cafe 123 last night with a job candidate. There was five of us total and we were all pretty hungry. We started with appetizers of beer-breaded asparagus and sweet-tea brined pork belly. Both were very good. Asparagus was especially delicious. Then the four of us ordered the special of the night which was monk fish on a... More

This was our first trip to Cafe 123 as we've read so many good reviews. Had a 6:30 reservation and was seated timely but the service slipped from there. It was another 20-25 minutes before the first drink or bread was delivered to our table. Wasn't particularly busy but steady so I'm not sure what was going on. The food... More

Our group of four were very happy with our recent dinners at Cafe 123. Lamb, two steak choices and halibut were all raved over. Drinks were well made. The only negative was the crab appetizer, which was the size of a small halved peach - way too small for the price. We had to try the bread pudding, which was... More

Out of towners in Opelika for the Clemson/Auburn game. Based on TripAdvisor, we chose Cafe 123 for our Friday night pre-game meal. Two had salmon, one had the Napoleon Filet and I had Lamb Chops. The men split a Pork Belly appetizer, which was delicious. Everyone was very pleased with the food and the service. The place is a little... More

Most of the reviews here are five stars and I certainly believe this restaurant is capable of that. However, our experience was not that great. The food was fair-had the steak napoleon and it had a minuscule amount of crab meat and was pricey. The main issue was the service was not up to par for this price range restaurant.... More

The food was delicious, the atmosphere was very relaxing. The food was extremely expensive. I'm sure there's other restaurants in the area this just is good but a lot cheaper

This cozy restaurant was a great place for a birthday dinner. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. Easy walk to the Event Center for after dinner entertainment.

Our first visit to Café 123 was wonderful. We were with friends who had come before and recommended it. The service was great and the waitress remembered our friends from before. The pork chop was delicious and generous and the filet was perfectly seasoned and cooked. This is a nice date restaurant although it is very small and open so... More

Our reservation was at 6:45 on Tuesday night. There were several tables that were full. We were immediately seated and water on the table. We ordered wine and appetizers. Service was quick and our server really knew the menu and preparation. The beer battered asparagus was perfect, the pork belly was beautifully cooked but could use a little acid to... More
