Good Restaurant Hiding Somewhere

The restaurant was not easy to find. It was hiding in some back road. The food and service was excellent. The red wine was very good. The scallops were cooked just right, not too salty. The creme brulee was disappointing; the layer of suger coating was too thick and sweet. Overall, I... read more

The restaurant was not easy to find. It was hiding in some back road. The food and service was excellent. The red wine was very good. The scallops were cooked just right, not too salty. The creme brulee was disappointing; the layer of suger coating was too thick and sweet. Overall, I recommend this restaurant and will return.

We dined at Satterfields last night and had a great experience. We sat at the chefs bar and watched the action while our waitress provided gracious and friendly service. The breads were wonderful. We had the pork belly app and a beautiful salad - both excellent. I had the soft shells entre - superb! And my husband had the halibut... More

We recently took out of town friends for dinner at Satterfield's. From start to finish, the experience was delightful. The valet who parks your car is always right there. We were ushered promptly to our reserved table as soon as we entered the door and wait staff appeared immediately to fill our water glasses and take drink orders. We love... More

What a great restaurant. As a transplant I did not know it existed, and it turned out the I worked in the same neighborhood. Pricey but great experience.

We visited Satterfield's for a business dinner consisting of 6 men from around the USA. The food and service were impeccable. We all enjoyed our variety of entrees and mixed desserts. The next time I am in Birmingham, I will visit Satterfield's again. The only negative is finding it.

We love this restaurant. This was our second visit and a third is in our future. It is among the better fine dining establishments in Birmingham. It caters to mostly locals and its location near the Summit is convenient when you don't want to go downtown. Started with cheese plate which featured four fabulous cheeses and accompaniments. My wife told... More

Drove down with the family to meet our college age son in Birmingham. We are slowly working our way through the top rated restaurants around the town. This time we chose Satterfield's. It is off the beaten path, but we had no trouble getting there using our map app. Valet parking is encouraged since there aren't many parking places. That... More

Excellent meal, service and entertainment. No not a band, watching the chefs do their thing right in front of you. Steak was a perfect medium rare as requested. Coddled egg appetizer as suggested by the server was great as well. Server was helpful with suggestions of wine pairings as well. Beinget's with apple for desert was also superb. Great meal... More
