My husband and I went for lunch and had the most enjoyable experience. We started with the escargot and the cauliflower soup. Both savory and well seasoned. For entrees my husband ordered the burger and I had the shrimp and avocado salad. The burger lived up to its expectation of "the best burger in Birmingham" and the salad was delicious... More

I also had the coconut cake on the recommendation of another reviewer. WOW, it was really, really good too with an... More

This was a great place to eat. The wait time was long on Friday night, about an hour and a half, but worth the wait. It is a small French restaurant with one of their specialties being, get this, a hamburger! My wife and daughter got them and they were very good. They were very juicy and the meat was... More

This is our favorite place to eat without a reservation. The food is excellent and moderately priced. The. fish is always perfectly cooked. I love the trout, the burgers, the escargot, and the lamb provincial. The Croq Madame and fries are excellent. The bistro is owned by Frank Stitt who is regarded as the premier chef in the south.

Being at Chez Fon Fon feels like being in a lovely bistro in the French countryside if you can, get a table near the bar and enjoy the crowd that flocks there for after work on Thursdays or Fridays. The on,y problem you will have with the menu is deciding what to order because everything is so good. And the... More

A pretty authentic bistro without the French greasy walls and old wines. Both inside and outside were appealing (with typical uncomfortable chairs, so they'd be French). The food was creative. Good apps -- escargot and pate for us which were both fine. The main courses we had were: the lamb provincial (nice, but too much so made a good lunch... More

My husband and I had dinner at Chez Fon Fon last night and opted for the special Bastille Day Menu which included ratatouille, Coulibiac of salmon, buckwheat crêpes, wild rice and brioche, a fruit tart for dessert, and a glass of Côtes-du-Brouilly Château Thivin all for a fixed price. Everything as fabulous, as usual, including the service! This restaurant is... More

My wife and I recently ate at Chez Fon Fon in Birmingham, AL. We had an excellent meal, outstanding service and at a fairly reasonable price. I had the hamburger which I had read about in news and magaziine stories. It was highly recommended, and I was not disappointed. The best hamburger I have ever had! My wife chose the... More
