We have wanted to try Cafe DuPont and decided to come here for our 32nd anniversary! We had a wonderful dinner, with excellent service. It is a quiet, upscale, and romantic environment, yet comfortable and relaxing. It was perfect for a nice celebration dinner. Excellent wine selection. Excellent menu. The chef handled my unique food allergies without a problem. We had a fabulous evening.

What a beautiful menu and breadth of choices. It was hard to choose. The persimmon salad was light and so fresh. More persimmon would have been much appreciated! The scallops were perfectly cooked with a beautiful crust... but paired with the tomatoes!!! Ahhh. The tea presentation was simple and beautiful too. We had a private event and the space was lovely. The service was spot on. Not easy interrupting a lot of conversations to keep things moving. The servers were tactful and gracious. The beautiful ceramic plates have to be mentioned. It beautifully complimented the food. If this is representative of the Birmingham food scene... I really need to come back!

For a birthday celebration, we decided to try a different restaurant from the ones we usually frequent. Cafe DuPont is located in downtown Birmingham and has valet parking. We started with drinks and 2 appetizers, the fried green tomatoes and the fried oysters and okra. Both were delicious. We had the fried chicken entree which was moist, tender and flavorful. For dessert, we had wonderful profiteroles stuffed with chocolate mint chip ice cream and covered with chocolate syrup.
We will be coming back!

Hey; it was a birthday and the comped us Champagne. Not only that but it was a Wednesday off hours and they put us in the front room where we were practically alone. We doubled down on the fried oysters and okra. There were four of us and it worked out perfectly. I had the red snapper over grits. Think the others had the pork tenderloin, flank steak and the vegetable plate. It was all wonderful. Service and presentation are a bonus. Thanks to the staff.

The fried oysters are the best thing about this restaurant, hands down! While it's on the expensive side, it's also a very nice downtown fine dining experience and convenient for business lunches. My family visited and we all ordered a different menu item so that we could try a bite of several entrees. While none of us were overly impressed with the entrees, they were all good, and different. We all agreed on one thing for sure - that we would be back for the fried oysters!
