The food here is exquisite. People visiting are always amazed that Birmingham has a world class restaurant that is the winner of the prestigious James Beard Foundation Award as the most outstanding restaurant in America. It's expensive, but well worth the money.

We had a family group of around 15 people. Tables were too close for my comfort, but overall I enjoyed the atmosphere and food was great.

This is an awesome restaurant. May be a little pricey, but worth every penny! If you have a special occasion, this restaurant should be on your top go-to places.

Took an out of town businessman for dinner. I was a little disappointed in food. The marinated crab claws are to die for! So good. They recommended a fish (they were out of snapper/grouper) and it was okay. I swapped entrees with my husband because...More
