Fantastic. This restaurant had amazing food and ambience. I highly recommend the fried green tomatoes and the foie gras appetizer. Heaven. The wine list was wonderful, as was the beer selection. Do not miss out on this restaurant.

I had read about the chicken they serve as being one of the best and it certainly was. We purposely went for lunch because that was when I found it on the menu. So if you are going for dinner, be sure and check the menu as that is the item I would recommend. Not that other items did not... More

My wife and I had a wonderful lunch at Cafe Dupont. It's an expensive restaurant and the portions are small, but the ingredients are locally sourced and the taste is excellent. Service is very professional.

Classy place. ideal for a business dinner. Price is fair and service is very good. I recommend the quail and the fried oysters and okra (appetizers).

Located in an historic area (and in an historic hotel, no less) this restaurant was SO worth the detour off the interstate while passing through Birmingham on a recent road trip. The charm of the old hotel remains in the full length oak bar, staircase and dining spaces. The food is classically Southern with a French influence -- but with... More

The service was excellent and atmosphere quietly elegant. You may be seated in the first dining area near the full bar or the main dining room. I was fortunate enough to have a seat near the window for an early dinner. There are wines and cocktails by the glass ranging from $12-24. The reisling was excellent while the cabernet was... More

Chris DuPont is famous for his gourmet twists on Southern favorites. We eat here a few times a year, and it never disappoints. Fine-dining, great wine list, excellent cocktails.

Cafe Dupont is on our top 10 list. It is one of those special places where upon entering I feel a lightness in my step and the weight melt from my shoulders. The ambience is wonderful, soft lighting, great classical or jazz music in the background. It's just a relaxing grown-up place to be. Dinner was wonderful. For starters we... More

We dined at The Highlands the night before and Cafe Dupont far exceeded! The cocktails, wine list, food, and service were far better and it has such an upscale elegant feel. Our waiter was perfection. Great prices as well.

This is an excellent restaurant located in the downtown area. Service was impeccable. The food was great. My wife and I split a Caesar salad but should've gotten two of them. The split was rather small plus they charged a four dollar fee for splitting the salad. The charge for another salad would've been eight dollars. They made my wife... More
