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.

This gem of a restaurant, mostly frequented only by midtowners is one of the best midtown has to offer. If you don't see it on the menu, just ask...if Cullen has the ingredients, he'll make it for you.

This is my "go-to" place for lunch as it is convenient to downtown Memphis and Midtown Memphis,too. Their bacon wrapped shrimp in a cream horseradish sauce is to die for! Served in a generous portion with a small side salad, it is perfect for when you want more then a grilled chicken salad. They have daily pizza offerings( although none... More

The interior is nicely done. Michelle is always excellent. The food, however, has been continuously on the decline since Michelle has left the kitchen. This is no longer a special place for us, as it once was. Unfortunately our most recent re-confirmed this. The food service was poorly timed, the steak was rare instead of medium rare and was uneatable.... More

The space has been redone and looks much better. The food remains as good as always. Michelle is a charming host.

Food was very good. Wine menu was somewhat limited, although a few good picks moderately priced. Had a larger group and could have used a second server to speed things along.

Interesting renovation and use of space but, I really miss the old CS. Enjoyed a date dinner in a packed house with gracious personal attention from the owner/chef. One dish was excellent and the other was not. Will try again.
