Classic franco-belgian fare

Friendly, knowledgeable staff, great food, and nice wine selections. Not inexpensive, but well worth it for a pleasant night out.

When we decided to celebrate our 47th wedding anniversary over lunch we chose Cafe Society. And, we were not disappointed. Both of our dishes were perfectly prepared, apetizing and pleasing to the eye. The restaurant provided a quiet and intimate atmosphere. Everything was done to perfection and the service exceeded our expectations. We will return.

The food was wonderful and the atmosphere excellent for a nice quiet dinner. My steak was top 5 best steaks I have ever had and my wives pasta was incredible. Owner is very attentive and the wait staff provided an overall wonderful dining experience.

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

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.

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
