Met some old friends for dinner while visiting UAB with our daughter. Nice atmosphere with outdoor seating as well as inside. A little on the pricey side for OK food. Server was OK, but alittle short with some of his responses. I had the crabcrab cake special and my other guest had pizza and mac and cheese. Adequate serving size... More

I am trying to balance the different experiences that I have had here. I have had three really good experiences, and one not good at all. I had one wonderful dinner with my wife there and slowly enjoyed a meal between us celebrating our then 6 months of dating. It was a great experience and I had a wonderful waiter... More

I had the red snapper served on a bed of an Italian rice dish with lady peas. It was AWESOME! I really enjoyed my dinner there. I have to say that I was there for a business dinner and was disappointed with the service. Our party of four were there for about three hours and not once did our server... More

A group from my office recently ate lunch at the cafe side on a Tuesday. They are currently serving crab cakes on Tuesdays and that is what my entire group ordered. We were not disappointed!

Bottega is another restaurant owned and operated by Chef Frank Stitt and wife Pardis. She greeted us personally and is quite warm. We dined at their well-known Highlands Bar & Grill the night before. Our meals at Bottega were honestly exceptional! Starters, mains, desserts - all have high quality ingredients, surprising prep/combinations - all delightful. They even serve cocktails with... More

This is the little sister of Birmingham's 5-star Highlands bar and grill. It is much more low key but still has the same excellence in food quality and creativity.

Delicious! Everything we had was fantastic. We went for lunch and had the roasted okra which was AMAZING. Then we each had a different pizza and all were excellent. The service was perfect- not a second with empty tea, food came out timely and everyone was very friendly. Definitely recommend and will be back next time we visit. The outdoor... More
