This was our second time dining at Satterfield's. The first time we ate at the bar where the chefs cook in front of you. I made a reservation this time and noted we were celebrating our 5th anniversary and would love to sit there again. When we arrived they sat us right away at the chef bar. They gave us... More

It's sad to see such a wonderful restaurant - in the past - decline so much in so little time. Yes, the chef that pushed them to the brink of excellence is gone. Where? They would not say. The new chef lacks the ability to offer imaginative offerings. Yes, the tuna was very good. But I would eat Tuna raw... More

We eat here often and are never disappointed. Last week we enjoyed the coddled egg, and charcuterie, salmon, pork and snapper. All done perfectly. This staff goes the extra mile starting with the host and moving to every part of our experience. Our server, Ryan was knowledgable and an asset to our experience. You are missing out if you haven't... More

What a great meal! In addition to the shrimp coddled egg appetizer and braised rabbit we also enjoyed the hickory grilled tenderloin. Cooked to perfection....medium rare as it should be. Service could not have been better. We ate in the bar and enjoyed some single malts and for desert a creamy White Russian. A restaurant where you can relax and... More

Though a native of Bham, I've been away for many years. The food scene there was less than inspiring. My wife and I were delighted to find a restaurant as enjoyable as this. The fritto misto appetizer we shared was okay, but the entrees were superb. Her tenderloin and my rabbit were perfectly prepared! Desserts were in the same category...Crème... More

Service was very attentive (and patient). Food was outstanding. Wife stated her snapper was the best she has ever had. My rabbit dish was executed perfectly. I have ordered this same dish other places with much less success. We will be back.

Was fortunate to eat at this Birmingham favorite a couple of times in the last two months and throughly enjoyed the experience where the menu can best be described as "upscale American". Both times I ordered seafood which was cooked perfectly and paired with the delicious "set ups". The service was excellent with a well informed and properly trained wait... More

My first time at this restaurant. I had maybe the best red snapper dish I have ever had. It was served with wild mushroom and asparagus. We did not have reservations but our hotel suggested it and made us reservations. I would have not gone here without their suggestion because it is a little off the main areas. I am... More

If you haven't eaten here you should. It is fine dining right in Cahaba Heights. I have never been disappointed. Enjoy.
