Interesting renovation and use of space but, I really miss the old CS. Enjoyed a date dinner in a packed house with gracious personal attention from the owner/chef. One dish was excellent and the other was not. Will try again.

Found a deal on living social and it was our first visit to Memphis and we wanted to try a local restaurant. It has a nice semi romantic atmosphere, the food and service was great!

This was my second time at this restaurant and both times I've been impressed with the meal. I had a featured dinner (seared tuna and scallops with goat cheese stuffed eggplant) The combinations of flavors was unique and very tasty. Others at the table had Salmon w/ scallops served with pasta in a cream sauce (this is a menu item and the most delicious of the 3 meals that were at the table). The place as been painted and art work has changed some -- more will be nice.

Freshly prepared, unique, delicious foods. The owner and chef are personally involved in each presentation and are always happy to modify dishes to gluten free, vegan, or whatever you want. Charming old building in MidTown almost like a Paris sidewalk cafe. Welcoming bar area, and one of the best wine lists in town. Wait staff is great. Just can't say enough good things.

Café Society, one of my two favorite restaurants in Memphis, is getting a face lift. Non-smokers will love the fact that you can now enter the restaurant and be greeted at a hostess area without having to walk through the smoking bar area. There is fresh paint and wainscoting in a small dining area and the larger dining area has new walls and doors to a room that can seat 40 for a private dinner. The food is the focus for me so whether or not there was remodeling is not important. Saturday evening I had the soup special which was a chunky, rustic tomato perfectly seasoned with tarragon. The grilled grouper was amazing. My husband always has the same thing--wedge salad and the New York strip with pomme frites--he says it is the best steak he has had anywhere. Go--you won't be disappointed.
