We arrived just in time for our 9:15pm reservation and were promptly seated in the bar area at a cozy table. We were quickly greeted by Justin and had our drink orders taken. If you have the chance - ask for Justin. This was our first time and although we knew what we wanted food-wise (the Drumfish was superb), Justin... More

The sister restaurant of Bottega, this is a classic, delicious dining spot. Chef Frank Sitt is a genius, always unique yet very classic! Great "date night" restaurant!!

Go to place when you want to thoroughly enjoy every bite; especially enjoy after the symphony from coffee and dessert (go quickly; they are getting close to shutting down mode then, so dessert only & get there quickly. While it's not cheap, you won't regret going.

Disappointing trip to a notable restaurant that we have visited often in the 30 years since it opened. We waited 20 minutes for a bottle of wine, 40 minutes for appetizers (the bar had a lot of oyster customers), and an additional half hour for the food. HB&G was not crowded. The wait staff seemed disorganized. The ladies had tenderloins... More

As a Californian who loves great dining experiences, I was excited to try this Birmingham restaurant. Our party, a group of six with four family members from the Mountain Brook area, was promptly seated and brought our choice of beverages, from an excellent wine, beer and cocktail list. I ordered the stone ground grits, which is one of the best... More

We tried to get a table on very short notice and weren't able to but there was ample seating at the bar. Quite pricey and a very limited menu. My steak was perfectly cooked and was beautifully presented with a twice baked potato to die for. Turned out to be a lovely meal that I and my companions thoroughly enjoyed.... More

Three of us arrived without a reservation at about 6:15 pm for dinner Tues night. We were promptly seated with a one-page selection of daily dishes. I ordered my customary: Grey Goose martini shaken "until it gives up the rent!" It came perfectly prepared, but in a filled to the brim, but very small martini glass. I was delighted to... More
