I surprised my husband the night before our trip to France (he knew we were going somewhere - but didn't know where) in this wonderful spot in downtown Decatur - and again enjoyed last night in toasting the restaurant on their 20th anniversary in Decatur....More

I have recently been to France and when I was in this restaurant, I forgot I was in Georgia. The pate was fantastic. The bread was fresh, the entrees were not French portions, definitely American size! Everything was delicious and I can't wait to go...More

Took my wife for a quaint, European version of a "down-home" meal and it was EXCELLENT! The lady who waited on us was friendly and solicitous. Just a great experience.

I loved everything about Cafe Alsace: the intimate setting, the kaleidoscope of French/Alsatian decor, huge Catherine Deneuve portrait, traditional music and...the food, the food, the food! My dish transported me back to Paris; the french onion soup, boeuf bourguignon with spaetzle (an Alsace staple I...More

Expensive but luckily has large portions. Unfortunately the two plates we ordered CHOUCROUTE GARNIE (3 types of sausage) & SPAETZLE AUX CHAMPIGNONS (a noodle dish) were not to our liking. The atmosphere was cozy and date night friendly, it just wasn't our kind of food.

Thesis still my very favorite Decatur restaurant, even thought there have been many other restaurants to open! The food is exceptional, authentic, delicious, and a nice portion. The atmosphere transport you to a cafe in France. The owner is delightful, and doing what she loves!

It's small y'all. Didn't have a problem with that, it was date night so small = romantic for us as compared to some of the other restaurants in the area that were larger but very over crowed and longer wait times. It was a Saturday...More

I'm a native Atlantan and eat out regularly. Yesterday was my second and last trip to this place. I've been all over France many times and never had food this tasteless. In fact, my sandwich tasted awful and had a bad odor. The onion soup...More
