Thank you so much for giving us such a good review. We value your opinion and your patronage. I suggest you request a quiet area next time you call for a reservation. There are a few options, not many, but a few. We look forward to seeing you again in the future. Best always, Becky Satterfield More

Without question, Satterfield's is one of the top restaurants in Birmingham. Every meal we have is better than the last. Standout menu items include the coddled egg (appetizer) and red snapper with summer sausage risotto (entrée). Also, the bolognaise with homemade pasta is the best I have had anywhere. The bread basket features four different varieties of fresh baked bread,... More

Read reviews about this restaurant and thought we would check this out. It is located in a quaint neighborhood. Away from the hustle and bustle of the city center and makes for a great, quiet rendezvous. We went on a weekday, Thursday because of a special occasion, a birthday. I was hoping to go on a Friday, since there is... More

The hubs and I visited Satterfield's to celebrate our anniversary. We arrived early for our reservations, so we enjoyed some drinks in the bar. The bartenders were friendly and the wine list is extensive. Our dinner began with the oyster appetizer which was fresh and tasty and I had the scallops as my entree. We enjoyed the creme brulee for... More

I wanted to plan a birthday surprise for my boyfriend. They gladly allowed me to bring in balloons, a gift, a party centerpiece, and a cake early that morning and agreed to set it up at the chef's counter for our reservation. My boyfriend was so surprised when we walked in. They even printed Happy birthday on the menu for... More
