Fresh, Different Selections From Most Memphis Menus

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... read 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.

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.

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.

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.
