“EXCELLENT”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2010

Cafe Dupont is my favorite restaurant in Birmingham. The ambiance is very romantic yet still appropriate for get-together's or business. Everything I have ever ordered has been delicious. My favorite entrée is the salmon but you can't go to Dupont without ordering the fried green tomatoes and crab claws appetizer. The service has always been excellent from everyone, including the valet guys! DEFINITELY recommend!

“Excellent dinner!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2009

Lovely food. Pleasant vintage atmosphere. A wonderful upscale experience. Staff was pleasant with good service. Even the valet guys were great! I was happy to support a local chef using local ingredients.

Coming from the bustle of downtown Chicago, I hope the central Birmingham area continues to revive.

“THE best food in Birmingham.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2009

Cafe Dupont is the best restaurant in Birmingham because it's food is always incredible. I've been there at least 10 times and I've never not been very impressed. It doesn't have the atmosphere of Little Savannah, but it's food blows Lil' Savannah out of the water. If you ask me, the food is what a restaurant is all about. I've also had my rehearsal dinner there. They did a great job. It's nestled into downtown - a place people don't rush to at night. But with valet it's plenty safe, and worth it - always worth it.

“A must go if you are in Birmingham AL”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2009

Cafe Dupont is a must-go restaurant located in an historic building in downtown Birmingham AL. The chef-owner Chris Dupont mixes the bistro' atmosphere and the French cuisine with the southern ingredients in an eccellent way. The food is awesome. Although the menu frequently changes, I love the cornmeal crusted green tomatoes with grilled shrimps and the pan seared scallops with roasted sugar stick risotto and greens. Their desserts are fabolous. The wine selection is wide including brilliant French and Italian wines. The service is adequate. A plus as compared to other good restaurants in B'gham such as Highlands or Bottega, is that the restaurant is not noisy and you can speak with the others at your table without shouting even when it is crowded. The only down I recognize is the price that can easily reach $80-90 per person with tip, taxes and wine but it is worth it to go.
