took our out of town guest and she enjoyed every bit as much as we normally do. Great food, service and value. we told the chef he should raise his prices on some items or reduce the quantity provided. the pork shoulder appetizer was very good, but awesome for the quality and price. still think they have the best salmon...

What a great dinner. The outside doesn't prepare you for the wonderful meal that awaits. Cash only, BYOB (only $2 per stem corkage-not per bottle). Summer seating in a lovely courtyard with water feature. Menu is small but everything is excellent. Went with friends shared the spinach dip and stuffed dates, 2 smoked salmon salads, 3 salmon and 1 stuffed... More

Adorable little spot in the south side. Very intimate setting for a special occasion or dinner out. The staff is unbelievable and committed to making your experience nothing but exceptional. The spinach dip for an appetizer with toast points was a must try. Lunch consisted of salmon, pork tenderloin and chicken dishes. All of these were delicious and just the... More

Cafe du Jour does not advertise, yet they are always busy because the food is delicious, fresh and prepared with loving care. Paul the owner is very hands on in this little intimate cafe. The kitchen is open to the room. In the colder weather the room collects the wonderful aromas of the cooking food. In the summer it is... More

Excellent food and service. Reminds me of a quaint European café with even better food. Locally made dessert was a real treat. Steaks done perfectly

We always take visitors to Pittsburgh here because the food is always so great, yet varied. You can see him at work right near the window. Kind of amazing what they produce out of a space smaller than most home kitchens. It's small inside, but in nice months, you can have dinner on the patio in the back, which is... More

Wow, some really good, some ok , some missing and the mouse scampering around on the patio definitely not good. We found out after we were there awhile on Wednesday evening the restaurant was soon closing on the weekend for some needed rejuvenations. Being a birthday celebration for my daughter I let several problems and deficiencies go which a good... More

Important to know: This is a cash-only, BYOB restaurant. Be prepared. The best thing about this restaurant is the outdoor seating area; it's tiny and rustic, but it features a little grotto and pond with white lights that is utterly charming, a small oasis in an urban setting. Of course, the food is excellent. They have a small, but tasty... More

**Please be advised that this restaurant is CASH ONLY. This is also a BYOB establishment that will add a small charge to your bill for use of their glassware.** I visited Cafe du Jour with a large group for an early dinner (5pm). The restaurant itself is a tiny place with a few indoor place settings and a larger outdoor... More
