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 back.

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 learned), and mousse au chocolat, and of course a delicious glass of red wine that...

Having lived in France and vacationed there many times, finding this gem was a wonderful treat - a chance to dine in the true Continental fashion - no rush, entrees ordered after an aperitif, time between courses, plates left to linger over, and food that was just delicious. The baked brie with the chestnut creme was particularly divine, and the... 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!

Had a chicken dish that was vulcanized. Would have mentioned it sooner, but the waitress didn't check on us until it was time to go. That included only getting one glass of water with the meal. When the chicken was sent back, we thought they would do something about it. It was too late to order something else, and they... More

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 night at 7:30pm. The food was tasty but...the staff, including the owner (who was present)... 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 was tasteless as well and had a silver dollar size of thin cheese on a... More

A small restaurant in downtown Decatur that's been in same location for several years. Owner is always welcoming and has done an excellent job of decorating the small room to make it seem as French as possible. Menu isn't extensive but food is very good and priced reasonably. Some dishes reflect the German history of the Alsace region and are... More
