It was a great experience on a cool, rainy evening. I remember sitting at a window table that overlooks the urban apartments across the street. The service was quite good and the food to match. I remember a varied assortment of vegetables and a great main dish served with a very good sauce. The Cafe doesn't serve huge portions, or... More

We went here with another couple because of a groupon. They stayed true to their word and allowed us to use it on anything on the menu. Our waiter, Gary, was very sweet and kind. Food was subpar. They had run out of a few things and this was at 7 on a Friday night. They also do not carry... More

However, my wife & I had thoroughly enjoyable and superb meal. mussels were excellent, fried goat cheese salad was well appointed,... More

I had been anticipating visiting Cafe de Paris for some time and finally went for our anniversary. Sadly I was disappointed. The wait staff were very attentive and friendly. The menu was uninspired and, in some cases, just strange. Where was the quiche? Where were the lovely waffles with fruit topping? How about a choice of omelets with, perhaps, fresh... More

Café de Paris has a great happy hour menu and live music on Friday. I’ve go for the last three weeks, love the wings and the drinks are delicious. It’s a great place to be and I’m becoming such a regular the bartender is starting to recognize me. The place has great food, drinks, and service; I recommend it.

I've had and cooked my fair share of authentic French cuisine, and I have to say that our Easter brunch was not at all haute cuisine and that Birmingham deserves much better. However, after reading the other reviews below (and I hope this doesn't sound mean) perhaps most people in Birmingham don't know the difference. My mother-son Easter brunch was... More

The food was absolutely delicious and the live Jazz band was so refreshing! I will definitely come back. The chef even came to our table and ask if our food and service was a pleasant experience.

Four of us ate dinner there tonight and all thought it was among the worst meals we ever ate and it wasn't cheap. We had never dined there before and we relied on the chef's recommendations in the selection of our meals. Three had fish and I had duck breast. While the three who ordered fish found the fish to...
