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

My wife and I ate here earlier this week, choosing from the special menu they had put together for Birmingham Restaurant Week. We both chose the chilled corn soup for our appetizer, and agreed that, while it was not something we had ever seen before, it was delicious. My wife had the pulled park past entree (nothing like a typical... More

Often excellent restaurant, located in small strip in Cahaba Hts. Neighborhood. Very good meats and seafood. On the downside no parking (use valet) restaurant is noisy and can get very smoky. Open kitchen. I recommend seating away from kitchen

My first visit to Satterfields 10 years ago was a yawn. The food and so, so and the service was abhorrent. Well, I have been back 3 times in the past 6 months and it is most certainly on my Birmingham favorites list. I love to start with the cheese board and a bottle of wine (selection is extensive) and... More

Nice casual restaurant for dinner. 4 of us had reservations for dinner. After objecting to being seated by the kitchen door, we were seated at s nice table. Had drinks, appetizers, dinner, wine and dessert. All were very enjoyable and it was a pleasant evening.

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary here last night. The service was perfect, and the food was delicious. We selected the cheese plate as our appetizer. I had the filet mignon with aged balsamic, my wife had the veal chop, and, for dessert, we enjoyed French press coffee and cream brûlée. Everything was delicious, and our server, Ryan, was... More

The food my family of 4 had here was, for the most part, fantastic. I rarely order chicken at a restaurant because I feel I can make it pretty good at home, but the oven roasted chicken was some of the best I've ever had. The red snapper was probably the favorite thing on the whole table, and the scallops... More

Good food, great service would definitely go back to try other menu items. Steak was fantastic and scallops were great as well.
