Arriving here with high expectations, I ate at the bar. The service from the new bartender, Damien, was excellent! The menu tends to accentuate local ingredients in a creative way and good choices on the menu. The ravioli of pine needles and bone marrow had very nice tastes and beautiful to the eye. The roast duck tasty and served on... More

Food average, great attention to presentation, it is a shame they did not pay attention to the flavours. I have visted fine dining all over the world and this far from fine dining. Had a table out side, table had no table linen, hard seats was specially uncomfortable when the food took ages to arrive. Servers were poor, the waiter... More

Each time I visit Birmingham, I am blown away by yet another fabulous restaurant. This time, it was Hot & Hot Fish Club, with the Bobby Flay-beating chef Chris Hastings. The restaurant itself is in a historied building in Homewood, with great handmade pottery, intimate and quiet atmosphere, and locally-sourced stone and other materials. The service was top notch. But... More

Birmingham has some of the great restaurants anywhere. While would like to call it a "best kept secret," the places are packed so the "gig is up!" Hot & Hot may be the best. They take great attention to detail. The bread basked alone is worth the trip. I ordered the beet salad and "Fudge Family Farms Pork." Both were... More

Hot & Hot Fish Club accommodated our party of six with graciousness and style. The waiter was superb - attentive but not overbearing, and offered a wonderful description of his favorites (we thought he was right on target). The food was incredible - plated beautifully, and the creative montage of flavors and ingredients were unique and wonderful. The grilled tuna... More

Had a fun dinner sitting at the bar watching the chefs. The food is fresh and the menu a modern take on southern food. Cocktails were also good. My only negative (and it is minor) is that I had their signature dish, the Tomato Salad with Shrimp. I found the poached shrimp an odd addition and would have found the... More

There were many choices for dinner and this one was recommended by a friend of mine. I was dining alone and was able to make a reservation at the chefs table which was perfect. The service was top notch along with the food. If you have a chance while in town check this place out.
