“Horrible service- average food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

Was at party of 4 and was one of only three tables that night. You would have thought our waiter had ten tables to handle. Never checked on drinks, we had to waive him down three times, then it took him 15 minutes to pick up my credit card after waiving him down for the check!
Food was average and below par for a supposedly upscale restaraunt.

“Always good!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

I have eaten at Cafe 113 at lunch numerous times and the food is always excellent. I think Cafe 113 had the best lunch in Decatur. As others have noted, the service is sometimes iffy. It totally depends on your server. I have also had dinner there to celebrate my husband's birthday and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. It was pricey but worth it!!

“Great place for a ladies group at lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

Fourteen friends and I enjoyed a delicious lunch today at Cafe 113. We made reservations a few days in advance, and our table was set up in a lovely spot and ready when we arrived. The lunch special today was grilled ribeye with sides of mashed potatoes, steamed broccoli and garlic bread PLUS a choice of garden salad, Greek salad or soup. The price was under $6.00. Incredible!!! Plus, tea or coffee with the special was only an additional 49 cents. There were other tempting choices on the lunch menu, and they were reasonably-priced also. Two waitstaff members were assigned to us -- one for each side of the table -- and they were very competent and efficient. All of us who went would definitely plan to go again.

“Great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2012

We stopped in right around opening time. The bar was full, but the dining room was empty. Nobody greeted us at the door, so we had to go to the bar to get service. We were seated and from that point on, the service was just average. The food was pretty good though.
