My husband and I dine here about once a month and have been for ten years. We love the sea bass. It is our go to dish. However, I have had other dishes and they were very good as well. My only criticism is that the Bibb lettuce salad is no longer on the menu. It was one of my... More

Went here for dinner with friends and had a great time. The French onion soup is delish, the chicken Gorgonzola is also amazing, and you will have some leftover. I ordered the bread pudding to-go and so should you.

Not one to be a creature of habit, I don't move much from my menu order at Café Society. The service is superb with an atmosphere for privacy and groups. I always savor the Seared Norwegian Salmon with Scallops and a side of Campanella Pasta, Shrimp, and the Spinach Roque fort. Too bad I left my phone camera. I HIGHLY... More

Had dinner here last night with friends. To me, it is always a bad sign when you are served some sort of brown and serve rolls. The salads with entrees are a real rip off. A house salad is included with the entrée. However, I misread the menu. I thought, if you substitute a different salad for the house one,... More

My wife and I recently dined at Cafe Society, it had been years since our last visit (we used to both work downtown) and it was every bit as good as we remember. The french onion soup is as good as any in town. I had the veal picata and she had the sea bass. Both were nicely prepared and... More

We have dined here for decades. Friendly and attentive staff. Great food on a diverse menu. Trio os soups and creme broullet are favorites. The bar is well tended. Wish it were a non-smmoking bar but the restaurant is non-smoking. Gret wine choices too. A definite Memphis Midtown fine dining experience.

Always great service and knowledgeable preparation explanations for menu items. Had the seared scallops and crab cake. Scallops were large and delicious however the crab cake was a little different them what I am used to. It was more of a sauted preparation. Others in the party had the 20 oz steak which was huge and well prepared. All the... More

We hosted 16 people from our local theatre. We had lots of great wine, the food was outstanding, and the service was excellent. We had our own private room and waiter, and nothing could have been better.

We stopped in for a late night snack and drinks. Good service. Centrally located in mid town. We wound up getting more food than we originally planned on and brought some home.

I enjoyed my lunch at Cafe Society. The daily specials didn't excite me, so I just got the chicken piccata. It was prepared nicely and was very good. The atmosphere is very relaxed and comfortable. The service was just right. Overall a very enjoyable lunch.
