Pleasant

Overall, a pleasant experience. The owner was cordial and went out of his way to make us feel welcome. Service was exceptional. Had the salmon and shrimp. Thought it was a little bland. Somewhat pricy.

I had the sea bass & it was as good as I get at home, in Fort Lauderdale. Cooked & seasoned perfectly. Our server was excellent & the owner being there was a special treat. I will be going back to this rare jewel.

My wife and I were a little hesitant from the outside appearance, but we are very thankful that did not stop us. The owner was warm and inviting, and everyone went out of their way to make our evening wonderful. We stayed for three hours (yes we are those people), and we never felt rushed or frustration from the staff.... More

Memphis Food is not only BBQ but there are also good Quality restaurants which take care about their traditionele. Cafe Society is one of them. Traditional Food with Some never combinations makes this a perfect spot for a saturday night dining experience. 'The bidden gems here are the Bread which is served on the side. Kids friendly as well.

Where do you go for lamb shank in Memphis. Cafe Society will fill your request with standard and more diversified selections.Every dish is excellent quality including the homemade ice cream. The service is excellent but relaxed, you feel like you are among old friends. Intimate yet homey. Tables are far enough apart that you do not here other parties conversations.... More

You never know for sure what to expect when a lot of time has passed since you last visited a restaurant. We arranged our reservation for 4 wondering if Café Society still rated a must visit. We were warmly greeted and did not have to wait long to experience a wonderful dinner. Three ordered fish and I went for the... More

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful evening with dear friends last night and I am always reminded when we return to Café Society that the food is delicious and the atmosphere intimate and relaxing. Dining here is an experience to savor every morsel and sip. They graciously split the salmon for me and my girlfriend and it was perfect.... More

The chef apparently got an almost middle of the night notice of a shipment of Ruby Red Trout asking whether he wanted some. The Cafe Society chef, of course, requested some and it sold out tonight. It was absolutely wonderful and I have had several kinds of trout but this was really special. Everything we had was very good and... More

My first time there. It is a comfortable restaurant on a quiet side street. The staff is friendly and very competent, without being intrusive. My meal was creative and delicious. I will go back.
