Chez Fonfon is a charming little restaurant at Five Points. Some dishes on the menu change according to the season. We ordered the chicken in wine sauce, which was very good. The desserts were also amazing. The pecan tart was wonderful and the strawberries with cream were fresh and tasty. A lovely place to go for lunch with family or... More

My wife and I took our daughter on her birthday and we had a great experience. We started with the crawfish bisque. It was delightful with just the right amount of crawfish taste. The ladies had a shrimp and avocado salad that they both enjoyed. I had to try the hamburger that I had heard so much about. It was... More

Food awfully good, which is certainly a plus. BUT if you actually want to have an actual conversation it is absolutely impossible. So wish we could manage to eat there when it is quiet but somehow our timing is off. Hate this.

We were passing by at lunchtime and saw The Highlands Grill, and remembered it from reading about Birmingham. We parked the car, only to find that Highlands Grill was closed. But there was a restaurant next door, with CF on the awning. I still didn't know what restaurant we were in until they brought the menu. The food was excellent...so... More

The food was delicious. However, the service was lacking. If I am going to spend $100 on my meal, I expect to be treated respectfully regardless of my age. My husband and I may be young, but that should have no reflection on how we are treated. No greeting from the server when she first arrived at our table and... More

I went for lunch at the recommendation of a neighbor and I thoroughly enjoyed my experience. The service was wonderful... it's a higher end restaurant and they treated me like royalty even though I was clearly underdressed (even for lunch time). The snails were a bit salty which distracted from the other amazing flavors and I had the fish special... More

We had a terrific meal here, and Miranda is an excellent server. The escargot is divine, fish of the day (pompano in our case) delicious, and cocktails spot on. Nice wine list. Hamburgers live up to their great reputation. This is a fun, high-energy spot. We'll definitely return.

This is a great place to eat...the outside courtyard in the back is very pleasant when temps are not to extreme. This might place might have the best burgers in town
